My players are currently playing Sword of valor. I have a barbarian guardian, a aasimar paladin marshal, a two swords fighter champion, a wizard archmage and a druid hierophant.
Just needed to share.
My player will undertake the Vescamor swarm next game. Last game, they were trying to find the traitor who were supplying Aaron with the shadowblood. They were suspecting Arles, the ex-paladin. They turn to Hurah for extra help (!) not suspecting her.
What they didnt tell her was that the druid was going to shapeshift as a horse to spy Arles all day.
Man, that was funny as hell. The stealth check to infiltrate the horses of Arles group, the waiting. Then, Hurah, to put the blame on arles, tried to put some vial of shadowblood in his bag while invisible. The druid catch her on the spot and with the scent ability, he recognise Hurah, even if she was invisible.
Because he wanted to be subtle and wanted to interrogate her before accusing her, he ask a paladin in the army (while in horse) to arrest her. The paladin was receiveig order from a talking horse! Man, that was hilarious. He was so sure too be under a mental spell that he asked a fellow paladin to catch Hurah with him.
Naturally, Hurah succed in facsinating the paladin, she «suggest» to the horse to get out of here and she was trying to get away. Shooting, entangle, invisibility, intimidation; finaly, the group catches the halfling. Arles sees hope again. And the horse saves the day
Not realy mythic, but it was fun.
