Classes/levels: Paladin (Grey) 4/Bard 4
Adventure: Maiden Mother Crone
Location: Maiden Statue, The Garden Feeder room
The Gory Details: The group noticed a Frost Giant slowly making its way up the tunnel toward them (though it had not yet seen them). Rather than attack it where it was vulnerable, they decided to "lure it into a trap" without thinking things through. They picked the door to the tunnel leading to the Garden Feeder room and the Druid cast Stone Spikes along the tunnel... but they failed to consider that the Giant wouldn't just keep moving through spiked stones and didn't cast it to surround the Giant. So when it hit the trap, the giant decided to turn back. It got the Andrazkuz working with it to check out the tunnel.
Meantime, the group decided to rely on the spikes behind them to deter anything coming up behind them, and moved up the tunnel, only to get attacked by the Tendriculos and Poryphanes. When the Andrazkuz made their way to the door (ignoring the spikes) they rolled a Nat. 20 for Perception and opened the door and started toward the rear of the group (who had just finished off the other two foes). They then teleported into the main chamber, used their Righteous Might ability to grow... and became a real threat. (They also managed to summon one additional Andrazkuz.)
That said, the fight was going well for the group until Shortie managed to badly hurt one of the Andrazkus with Smite Evil. The majority of the demons turned on Shortie and brought them down to -2 hit points, and the GMPC Hunter to 5 hp. The group was talking about a possible Total Party Wipe until one of their Oracles badly hurt the demons with a Healing Flames spell while simultaneously bringing the Paladin and Hunter to double-digit hit points.
While there was no "true" death, I'm counting it as the group was seriously thinking they were going to go down. And honestly, I have no idea how the group will prevail against Kirisjana, to the point I've a new GMPC planned to help out - a heal-bot cleric with a vow against killing who could cure their blindness, as I can foresee most of them failing a DC 21 save vs. Blinding Beauty... and no one has any spells to cure blindness. (In this situation the Hunter will die against the debased nymph.)
