GEEK OUT TIME: #onceuponatime a band of adventurers snuck their way into an ancient Temple of the Sun carved into a mountainside in the Cliffs of the Cloudpeaks Mountains looking for signs of the missing villagers from the town below. Seeing a disused cave network carved into living stone steps they stumbled across what seemed to be an abandoned training area of old warrior dummies and an obstacle course. Splitting the Party (as they are wont to do) they searched the nooks and alcoves of the empty cavern looking for weapons and treasure. As the #Dragonborn scales the inner cliff to find another stairwell he noticed jammed in the passage the frozen bodies of several unfortunate humanoids shellacked in an icy block.
Looking to tell his companions below he hears the beating of wings that sound softly of crystal shattering. Looking out past the cliff into the open air towering above the village far below, he sees the huge Icy blue form of a Draconic figure swooping in hungrily into the gap in the mountain face. His friends the #bard, #warlock and #ranger watch as this Icyern, a foul experiment of foul magic infusing the elemental frozen waste within the body of a Wyvern, attack their friends position. Using its advantage of speed, flight, and familiarity with its nest the beast quickly overcame the separated party membership it stalked them through the network of pillars in the cave. They were fighting for their lives as they were each either frozen by its icy glare, clawed with its serrated talons, pierced by its chilling bite, or stabbed by its poisonous paralyzing stinger! They were able to rally after all at some point dropped needing survival checks and stabilizing all while hiding from the monster! They would eventually rally and use magic and might to fell the Icyvern but not before walking the fine line of of Total Party Kill!
Now time to desecrate the dead, er, I mean find loot!
