I left the door open a crack just so I could peek out at the spider-monstrosity. Blaze and Kaz approach behind me. I hear the screaming knight, and notice the faint blue glow of his strange sword. From behind the doorway behind me. I tell Kazuo to hold off the monster while I gather the others. He flies towards it at high speed. Blaze tries to sneak up to the Drider to flank, but gets smashed by the drider’s back. Drankairus comes back from the clown’s shop and tries to slice at the Drider, blocking it’s attacks. I move up to the doorway and take a shot. Blaze gets behind it and stabs, I jump towards it and hit. I then sulked behind it while the others wailed with fists and blades, handing a potion to Blaze. Then I start a spark and light the spider ablaze. It burns like a lamp in the darkness. I run to the back of the room and use the flame to my advantage, throwing a fuse-lit bomb. Unfortunately, I overshot and blasted Blaze backward. I go back to cursing it, growing tired of this beast. Kazuo flurries it with blows and a weakened Blaze delivers the final blow to his neck. Drankairus becomes unfriendly with Blaze, not trusting the rouge at first. Kazuo and Drank discuss about Kinoria, and I complain that he should
hand his sword off to a real swordsman. I split up and go with Blaze to the west of the cave. We
walk into the room and find the traveling catfolk merchant Miniri. We searched the room and found various materials, and I snatch the eye of a Drow on the ground. Blaze sleeps in the supply room and I head back to where the Drider was. On the door behind the Drider I find a strange symbol that I don’t recognize, the door is also locked. I provoke two bats in the cave, trying to gather potion material from them. They bite at my skin, blood drips down my arm. After we clear the room, I buy alchemist’s fire from a elven alchemist who was being held prisoner.
I held the alchemist at knife point, wanting his expertise in our group. I wasn’t going to let him go without at least a fight. I ask him for his name and he says he is Francis. (Francis becomes friendly for an hour). I run down the corridor towards the main door. The drider’s corpse twitches at me as I walk past it. However, when Aisling flies into the room she sees another group of Drow and sends me a telepathic message. I load my musket, and Drankairus charges in. I aim down the sight while Francis shoots lightning [4 uses left]
A drow woman walks up and calls herself the Oracle of Scorpio. The drow are apparently running from the crusaders too. I try and shoot at her, but miss with my terrible aim. She casts Poison on her spear as I discover, waving her hand over a spear. I rush forward and cut at her wrists to disarm her. I count out about 40 Drow in the room. She slices me in the face and I laughed in the face of pain. However, she is fast enough to dodge me. Then she stabs me in the leg with burning pain. In anger I lash out with both daggers, but miss totally. Then I rolled behind her and stabbed her in the back. Francis is attacked by the drow and escapes in the fray. When she turns around, she looked very tired. Aisling scratches her, but I saw the scratch heal up right in front of me. However, she looks weakened, so I use a hex to make her stagger further. She swings at me again, getting another cut across my cheek. I knock her out with a solid punch. A massive demon bursts through the cave wall along with two knights, the monster has large ram horns and goat-like hooves. Kazuo Examines it and it has a strong aura that almost overwhelms him [HD 10]
The demon runs at Kaz with his axe, but he blocks it and pulls out his slim white sword with a blue ruby in its hilt. The sword smashes into the demon’s side, cutting into him. I know this sword has holy magic, and it doesn’t look like it has even been made by human hands. I sulk back into the shadows, and Niobe follows me. She wears a silver ring with a glowing sapphire gem that glows with topaz aura.
She heals rather fast, and mentions it is due to her accessories.
Tristan feels neutral toward Niobe
Niobe is hostile towards Tristan
The Drow are firing arrows at the demon, some piercing it’s dark reddish fur and some bouncing off. One arrow pierces him in the head and causes him to buck and scream with an explosion of blood.
One arrow is blocked by a nearby knightly figure.
Drankairus runs up and stabs the demon with his glowing sword, causing the demon to stagger.
The Knight runs up and slices at Drankairus’s face with his rapier (4 damage).
Kazuo rolls out of the way of the executioner and he makes a strong slice at it’s arm, causing another gush of blood as the beast falls over.
[Drankairus and Kazuo level up from the exp]
Drankairus goes from level 3 to level 5
Kazuo Level 6 to Level 7
A mysterious man wearing a white mask and a trench coat, shoots out at one of the knights. I take advantage and stab at the guard who was shot. Niobe comes in along with me and we watch him fall before us.
The Archers fire at the remaining knight, who had accidentally stabbed himself and Drankairus finishes him off with a smack.
Kazuo puts away his sword. I follow him into the light in front of the back of the cave. I offer to lead the drow somewhere safe.
Darin takes off his mask, showing a horrible scarred face. Tristan is forced to act friendly to him after a successful intimidate.
We’re in a small forest that leads into a small cliff, and I hear the ocean and the sound of seagulls.
I count up my current money that I stole from the guards behind, including some platinum coins.
Aisling flies into the air and scouts out a town about a mile away.
There are 13 drow remaining and Niobe traveling with us. They are all armed with crossbows and short swords.
Drankairus becomes neutral with the drow and Niobe.
We find about 15 crusaders inside the town, but they all drop their weapons and run.
There is a boat off the side of the dock. Darin fires off at them with his musket, since he didn’t reload his pistol.
Darin has 28 bullets left.
I count out about 20000 gold, and leave 200 at the desk for the town. The drow pile into the barracks, trying to escape the light.
Francis walks into the town, saying this was his hometown. He used to own a shop here in Fluzigeit before the Crusaders raided it.
Miniri shows up on her boat and waves to Francis.
