"Lurtoad" (1x21) is the 21st session of the first campaign of Itora.

Versa returns from death, but not before experiencing a vision. Back in the town, the party interrogate their captive for information. Reinforcements arrive in an attempt to finish the job, but are utterly unprepared for amphibian combatants.


In the moments where Versa's soul drifted the border between life and death, she experienced a vision. Returned to her ship, The Avarice, the crew is struggling to handle her in rough seas. Magpie begs her help to lead the crew. She takes charge, barking orders to fix sails, tie down loose crates, and to be on lookout for crewmates going overboard. They notice sharks in the water, so Versa has Kismet tie her so she can fight them. Versa is able to breathe underwater, but doesn't notice in the moment. Magpie uses Shape Water to freeze the holes in the side of the ship. As the seas calm and the storm passes, the crew feel accomplished at surviving. However, Versa's senses go dark, save for a single word from a mysterious voice:

       BBESM to Versa at the end of her vision

Versa wakes on the cold jungle floor, with Friend on her chest. Attempting to stand, she finds her leg is broken and she has a mild concussion. Lurtak attempts to help by fashioning a splint, but Pine uses healing magic to speed up the process.

Back at the town, the party take a rest, keeping a watchful eye on their captive monk. They interrogate him, learning they're a mercenary group, previously hired by the Order of the Voiceless Lark. Their destination was two days travel northeast, but caught wind that there was traffic in this village, and they don't like to leave a job unfinished.

Reinforcements arrive, and the monk, who had been buying time, escaped out the window in a shadowy mist. With fresh grunts, the Warlord returns to finish the job. Versa quickly casts Disguise Self to hide her identity from the hobgoblin who bested her hours before.

Gael takes point up in the tree, is pursued by the monk, who is unsuccessful in moving them from their spot. From such a high vantage point, they were able to rain arrows on the invaders while remaining relatively untouched. The same cannot be said for Versa and Pine, who are both surrounded by melee fighters and are downed several times. Friend, in Faerie dragon form, unleashes countless Euphoria Breath attacks incapacitating many combatants.

Just as things looked dire, Lurtak attempts a hail mary; He downs a Polymorph potion, turning him into a Giant Ice Toad. In this new form, “Lurtoad”, Lurtak focused on swallowing nearby enemies. While the toad's frost radiance nearly proved fatal to an incapacitated Versa.

The party dispatches the invaders one by one, until only the Warlord remained. Versa drops her disguise and, with the help of Pyre, finishes him off. The party retire for a well earned long rest.
