"A Taste of Defeat" (1x41) is the 41st session of the first campaign of Itora.

Friend and Friends go toe to toe with the Devil Slayers in a nail-biting Winner's Finals.


Versa takes up position hidden in a bush, waiting for a hapless passerby to enter her range. Encyea and Gael take up high ground positions and proceed to duel. Gandalf flies out to meet the approaching Michel and Khajit in combat but the tabaxi takes out the familiar in one hit. Versa lands her held attack for a hefty sneak attack on the repositioning Khajit, who manages to Uncanny Dodge and reduce the bulk of the damage.

Pine casts Shatter on the distant Michel and Tallulah, only to have the sound of thunder ego as the two foes instantly appear in melee range. Tallulah uses her Wild Shape to turn into a large unknown reptile who immediately assaults Pine. The ranger duel between Gael and Encyea continues, trading heavy blows at a distance. Ricoril heals the wounded Pine and asks the reptile whether or not he can get a ride on them after the match, to which the creature roars.

Versa casts Disguise Self to appear as Khajit, but wearing a ribbon around her wrist to tip off her teammates that it's her. Gael manages to knock Encyea unconscious and end Tallulah's Wild Shape. Friend stands in the way of Michel's attacks on the unconscious Pine, giving himself up for Pine's continued survival. Khajit is left unconscious by Versa, fails a death save, and succumbs to the hazard effect to become the first elimination.

Tallulah signals a codeword to Michel as her eye glows and heals him. He uses his Thunderstep again to bring both of them to the aid of the unconscious Encyea. Ricoril heals Pine and strolls over to the Khajit-disguised Versa with the intent to update her on the situation, but thinks better of it and makes a show of attempting to attack her. Pine casts another Shatter at the grouped up enemies, putting Encyea dangerously close to being eliminated. Versa innately casts Invisibility and sends a quickened Ice Knife towards the same group, managing to maintain her invisibility.

Enraged by the attacks, Tallulah invokes a 5th-level Moonbeam, hitting both Pine and Gael, and shunting Gael back into their unmasked changeling form. She then Wild Shapes into the large reptile again and positions herself over the unconscious Encyea and infront of Michel. As retribution for the Moonbeam, Gael fires one of the lightning arrows Encyea gave them previously at Michel; while the attack misses, the residual crackling energy is enough to finally take Encyea out of the fight, ending the unofficial ranger duel.

Michel directs his gaze towards the invisible Versa, announcing that she may have outwitted him, but not the perceptive Tallulah, as he successfully casts Banishment on Versa[1]. She finds herself comfortably swaddled in a sea of nothingness, able to freely move around. She activates her Ring of Masks to send Magpie a message to say "I'm sorry". Looking around, she notes three threads extending from her form out into the distance. She picks one and chooses to follow it.
