Thursday night is Planarch night!
The party witnesses a Starfish Man being stoned by a Gorgon assassin. While the assailant escapes, our Paladin rocks his Inevitable Heritage “End an Effect” move to save the victim. But the Paladin has no Hold to spend on the move so I ask him to earn some by telling us about when he was first possessed by the Inevitable. He tells us that the planar lawgiver was mortally wounded in a battle against an abomination and its essence used his teenage body as a lifeboat. Inflamed by the weird law-passions of the Inevitable, he set aside his bookish ways and became a Karthite Paladin.
With the power of the Inevitable flaring behind his eyes, he explodes the statue and the Starfish Man emerges from the blast, unharmed!
Meanwhile our body-switched Bard and Wizard, who were lovers for one magical night in the Fleshbender lab, both move on to some revenge fucking. The Wizard hooks up with a hot Fleshblender who has a beguiling talent for gender-switching. The sad-sack death-magic emaciated Bard is stuck seducing a Ghoulish sea-captain. But Ghouls do it differently and his mosquito-like proboscis is unable to penetrate the Bard’s bony hip. Shamed, the Ghoul locks himself in the water closet and leaves the Bard to awkwardly let himself out. The Bard is heartbroken and still pines for the Wizard’s embrace. It’s all dungeonhearts in our Dis.
Other things we learned about Dis: 1) the Lightning Brains are native to the parish of Ynan and are basically massive plasma balls with brains inside them. 2) War Brains occupy orbs that are spiked like the head of a mace. 3) The parish of Greatlune borders the Chaos Sea and has sorcerous diamond piers that extend kilometers out into the maelstrom. 4) Vain sorcerers will spawn dozens of homunculi and cull all the imperfect ones, but some escape and squat in Ditchbiggin. 5) Starfish young bud off their parent, but only after a prolonged infancy of several years. 6) Starfish do everything slowly. 7) Vulture folk have a unique hook-and-dagger fighting style. 8) Vulture folk look like Skexis, but are way more limber. 9) Vulture folk were cursed to walk by a god after they ate a very wrong thing.
