Yet more blood is splattered, as our heroes delve further into the Gray Garrison — the demon invaders’ beachhead in Kenabres — to destroy the wardstone and strike a blow to their plans of conquest. After clearing the first floor and piling up corpses of tieflings, cultists, and demons, they decided to rest in one of the Garrison’s rooms…
29th of Arodus, 4718 AR
Rudis was awakened suddenly by a prod to the shoulder. Hayaku was quietly walking around the room waking all of the group. He sat up. He could hear quiet voices outside.
It didn’t seem to be Common. He stood, and cautiously walked to the door to put his ear to the wood. They seemed to be speaking Abyssal.
But then Mozilla, still half awake said loudly, “What’s going on?.”
The voices outside turned to footsteps in their direction. Then the door burst open, and the battle began with Rudis’ fist hitting flesh.
But then with a flash and a flurry of cloaks Rudis fell unconscious… then he was up again. In the short time he had to take in his surroundings he saw the entire party except him and Hayaku were unconscious. Rudis got one punch in then was down again… then up. 3. 4. 5. punches hit but then down again…
When he finally woke up, he found the rest of the group getting nursed back to health by Hayaku who had 2 black eyes, a gash across his back, and only 4 fingers on his left hand (the missing finger seemed to be in the far corner of the room, quietly leaking blood into the corner of Sophia’s sleeping bag). Once the party was healed up they set off again.
