During the huge storm before arriving at Bonewrack Island, the party (ftr/rog, rng/brd, kensai, witch, cleric) decided that Fipps needed to die. They did a great job of, during the storm, working to untie his safety line and then push him overboard (opps! big wave got him!). I made Fipps into a particularly obnoxious NPC, both a threat and an irritant, and they really had it out for him.
And on Bonewrack Island there were two noteworthy moments related to Aaron Ivy. First, the bard decided, upon seeing the both hanging there, that he really liked the guy's coat, and after a few rounds of prestidigitation surely it would be clean. So he entered the hut, only to start puking. This particular player is very focused when it comes to collecting loot and so the puke was a challenge to him - he would not be denied his fine coat! So he soaks a bandana in the leftover perfume from the whores (dunno why...I told him it spelled awful), and went back in, made his save, reached for the coat, and was grabbed by the now-moving ghast. Luckily for him he broke the grapple, fell to the floor, and backed out. Meanwhile, the witch doctor, who'd enlarged himself to fight the vine chokers, walked over and, standing outside the hut, used his longspear to easily poke the ghast to death. The encounter, therefore, was hardly as difficult as it could have been, and created an funny image of this giant Live & Let Die-style bocor laughing wildly (he does that) as he jabbed at this dead thing thrashing on a rope.
