    Dire draws strength from Panmorn's words and quickly prepares his next spell as he carefully maneuvers backwards. He realizes that while his magic may be deadly to groups of foes, it is equally dangerous to his allies. He carefully aims his next Scorching Burst spell behind the most injured of the two Denwardens. The creature is further injured by the resulting flames, but remains standing.

    Barran backs away from the den wardens and plays a stirring song directed at the kobold champion. The kobold seems demoralized, and his companions seem determined to take the creature down. He then attempts to play an ear-shattering note at the bleeding kobold in front of him, but the creature manages to shrug off the effects.

    Not seeing many options, Zevi carefully moved out of the flank, but something he saw in the kobold's eyes made him panic and stagger back giving the kobold a chance to strike at him.

    Oh good, more kobolds - Round 4

    Irontooth growls at the assault, shoving Panmorn aside to fall in at his flank before making two sweeping blows. Only one connects, but it gives the denwardens behind him a chance to make their move. Both creatures form a flank around the wizard and strike out at Dire and Barran, inflicting minor pains.

    Suddenly, the cavern is lit with a bright, fiery light. Cries of pain echo off the stone walls, and when the dust clears, Panmorn and Halvard clutch their faces in pain, trying in vain to brush away the fire that momentarily engulfed them. The wyrmpriest smiles; a thin curl of smoke escaping the corner of his mouth.

    Panmorn was focused solely on Irontooth, he prayed to Pelor "Lend me your strength that I may slay this creature."

    The paladin felt a surge of holy energy flow through him as he struck, and he new Pelor had answered.

    The kobold's attack, though stunning for a moment, only serves to stoke the fires of Halvard's rage. He steps back again before launching into another charge, this one striking the little lizard right in the chest.

    Reeling from his wounds, Dire manages to maneuver himself to best line up his next spell for maximum effect on the party's foes. Reaching deep, he heroically casts the spell, but leaves himself open to another attack from a kobold as he does so. As he watches flames fully engulf one kobold, deeply burn another, and singe Irontooth, he hopes it was worth it.

    The den warden juts out his spear as the wizard concentrates, catching him off guard. It barely connects, though.

    As the kobolds fall, the din of battle begins to echo less, allowing Barran's flute to be heard, to great effect. Irontooth is pushed back by a wave of sound, allowing Halvard an opportunity to take a swing at the disoriented champion.

    Seeing Irontooth bloodied and battered from the multitude of wounds he has taken, Zevi focuses his attention on the monster and lets fly with two more arrows. The first arrow flies true but doesn't seem to hit as hard as Zevi would have expected. Zevi's Elven senses and training tell him at the last 2nd that his 2nd shot is flawed, and he adjusts it as he releases - the change works, letting the arrow strike true.

    Oh good, more kobolds - Round 5

    As the battle continues and Irontooth takes blow after blow, his body begins to weaken. Zevi's arrows pierce his chainmail, and he slumps down onto one knee and steadies himself. The adventurers momentarily think him defeated, until he bounces back into an attack stance and charges at the ranger. He is clearly enraged. Luckily, his frantic swings find no purchase. He seems to have gained some strength.

    Panmorn turned his focus to the priest standing in front of him and calls out his challenge. "You are nothing!"

    In his haste and anger, Panmorn swung wide and missed his mark.

    Seeing a gap in the wyrmpriest's defense, Panmorn cut through it easily. The blow proved too much for the beast, it now lay dead Panmorn's feet.

    Even though he's on his last legs, Irontooth still has Zevi backed into a desperate situation. He doesn't hesitate to raise his bow and rapidly fire off two arrows as the brute strikes out at him. The arrow punches through the monster's armor easily. Zevi adjusts his 2nd arrow to fly at the last kobold in the cave even before Irontooth's lifeless body hits the ground.

    Irontooth falls to his knees in pain, Zevi's arrow buried in his chest and protruding out the other side. He sputters something in Goblin and falls dead to the dusty cavern floor.

    The last remaining kobold lunges at Dire, but misses wide.

    Panmorn walks up the last kobold as he calls out a challenge, "Your comrades have fallen, and so shall you." The beast had no time to react as Panmorn's blade came down on him, it was dead before it could even make a sound.

    The adventurers stand victorious in the large, well lit cavern. They spend a moment quickly searching the bodies of their foes. And now, with a moment to finally take in their surroundings, they notice the pile of treasure in the north east.

    Halvard stands up from searching the battered body of Irontooth, the hobgoblin. He holds out a small silver key and a rolled up letter.

    My spy in Winterhaven suggests we keep an eye on any visitors to the area. Continue to lead attacks on the area. I need time to completely open the rift and summon the minions of Lord Orcus.

    -Kalarel


    Amongst the treasure pile, Dire finds some gold and, perhaps more importantly, a large chest. It is locked.

    What do you do?

    "Here," Halvard says, holding out the key to Dire. "Try this. Also, there was a letter. Apparently someone named Kalarel is working on some sort of magic to summon a 'Lord Orcus'. I'm assuming he should be stopped."

  • RedDawnRedDawn Registered User regular
    "Orcus you say? " Panmorn says as he silently contemplates.

    Dire walks up to the chest and opens it with the silver key. When he lifts the lid, the first thing he notices is the rather large pile of gold coins. But the wizard cannot ignore the ornate piece of armor folded neatly beside it. Lifting it up, he notices arcane symbols etched down the chest. The symbols are a dull umber, as if burnt into the leather. Examining the armor is no challenge for you, and you recognize the enchantment immediately.

    This is enchanted to magically store a power for later use. It can even store the power of another person. Where did Irontooth's lackeys find something like this?

    "I say we grab the armor and proceed to Winterhaven, the town must know of the peril it is in" said Panmorn as he checked over his gear.

    He then said a silent prayer to Pelor, thanking him for the strength in battle, and asking for protection on the road ahead.

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    "This armor for someone less... sophisticated than I. Feel free to take it."

  • DenadaDenada Registered User regular
    "Too small for me," Halvard says, looking at the armor. "I agree that we should head for Winterhaven. If nothing else I could use something to eat. This fighting has made me hungry."

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    "Winterhaven it is. Using that much magic in such a short period has exhausted me. I could use some rest. Maybe the god's will be kind and someone in that backwater village will have books or artifacts I can trade some of this treasure for.

    It appears our friend Zevi has already fallen asleep..."

  • El SkidEl Skid The frozen white northRegistered User regular
    Barran brushed at the dirt on his clothing and made a tisk tisk noise. "I think we could all use a long rest in a nice bed. The sooner we get to Winterhaven, the sooner I can find someone's bed to rest in."

    The adventurers gather their things and head back the way they came. It is several hours later and long after dark before they reach the gates of Winterhaven, which are slung tightly shut. A torch appears over the battlements above and a head peeks out.

    "Who goes there? What business have you in Winterhaven?"

    "We're tired travellers who are a bit worse for wear, having just been waylayed by a band of kobolds. We'd really like to be allowed in and get a good night's sleep and a decent meal- Rosie at the Stag makes such amazing beans and sausages, I don't think I could bear sleeping outside the gates and being so close to them without being able to dig in."

    Dire whispers to the party "I was imprisoned by guards like this my entire life. Better to just burn the walls down and be done with it."

  • FiggyFiggy Registered User regular
    The guard on the battlement calls back down.

    "Rosie, eh? Not sure I know anyone by that name, but you seem like a nice enough lot."

    He withdraws his head just as the gate begins to open. Inside the walls you're greeted by a city long shut down for the evening.

    Barran looked at Dire and smiled a dazzling smile.

    "The problem with fire is that people respond to it with fire. Kind words get responded to with kind words, if you have the knack of it. And...since I do have the knack, maybe we can just hold off on the fire altogether while we're in the city, at least until my words fail?" Though the meaning behind his words were crystal clear, his demeanor was laid back and friendly, as though there was no doubt in his mind that Dire was perfectly able to control himself and life was good.
