Day Five (con’t)
So, we started through the door. I am barely through before I notice an altar with a young dragonborn lying across it with a statue of a dragon overlooking it. I recognized Rhogar from a few weeks ago. Then I noticed a few guys standing around in the room.
I fired my crossbow at one of them, killing him. As I rushed to check on Rhogar, I was attacked by another guy with a spear.
On the other side of the statue, Stonebreaker slaughtered two of the guards. Then Pinecone was able to kill a third guy. Keyleth’s flaming sword cleaved through the last two guards.
As I checked Rhogar, some curtains in a doorway flew open and a few new guards came through. We were able to make quick word of the kobolds. Rhogar woke up shortly after that.
As we explored the place, we found several more altars and sacred rooms. Granted, we split up for the search, but we were able to cover a lot of the ground that way. (this ended up being a bad thing later on) We also found a dragon.
It was a fairly big snow dragon that towered over all of us. I could see the gold that the dragon lay on, and I admit to wanting to take the lot of it. However, I wish to live. Therefore, we spoke to the Dragon and we were able to pass through. We even learned that the Tiefling we were sent to find had pissed off the Dragon, Farralax. Farralax gave me a really nice piece of armor in order to help us.
As we entered the room beyond the Dragon, we met a goblin. The guy threw a knife at me, and it landed right at my feet. He was only five feet away from me. HOW DO YOU MISS AT THAT DISTANCE!?! Not that I want to get him by a nasty goblin daggar, but seriously, how do you miss? I shot him in the arm. Okay, not my own best shot, but I still nailed the sucker.
We fought through him and found a bugbear when Keyleth opened the door at the other end of the room. Rhogar, impetuous and young as he is, decided to open another door to find a flanking path.
He found a storage room with two goblins. I decided to help the young guy because I was not doing anything to the bugbear. Rhogar attacked one guy, and I jumped in to kill the other. My sword cut through the guy and splashed him with acid. I really like this sword. It wasn’t a long before Stonebreaker joined me and helped slaughter the guy.
Then I heard someone swear from the other room, so I rushed to see what was going on.
I REALLY WANT TO HURT SOMEONE FOR THIS!
I entered the room and saw the bugbear on the ground, a nice ax lying next to him. Keyleth stood in the open doorway. Pinecone and his dog were charging through the door. Beyond the door was a room that looked like an alchemist’s workspace. I noticed the Tiefling and a few skeletons. But the thing that really caught my attention and really pissed the hell out of me was a giant ogre looking thing.
I watched as it approached Pinecone and swung at him.
Pinecone and the dog flew through the air with the greatest of ease, and not under their own power.
All hell broke loose. I have very little recollection of what followed except that Stonebreaker and the dog attacked the skeletons. Keyleth ended up in the room beyond the bugbear with Pinecone. Rhogar and I were securing rooms to stop the attacking undead.
Pinecone is alive, but it wasn’t a sure thing.
I don’t know who opened that door, but when I find out. It will not be a good day. Let me just say that. I know that Rhogar was in the room with me. Stonebreaker could have done it, but I doubt he would have left such obvious foes in order to help me kill that goblin. If it was Pinecone, I have a boot with his name on it. If it was Keyleth, I will show her just how much I don’t trust elves. Sure, I may be an elf, but I trust our kind as far as my dagger will stab through a brick.
Gods help me, I want to kill someone.
