Gilarans round up of the missing action!
WARNING IF YOU HAVENT LISERNT TO EP 16 YET THIS CONTANES SPOLERS
Imagen if you will a smoky tavern. The beer is flowing as is the banter, a group by the fire are listening to a talltale, choc full of thrilling adventure, unfeasible creatures, betrayal and loss.
The fidgety nimbic pauses in his tail to take a swig of something disreputable and fish strawberry’s from the cleavage of the bar lords daughter.
Let us join them.
So nathanda was dead . it’s a bit depressing really. he might have bean a bastard but he was our bastard, and a hard one at that. if it wasn’t for him we would all be meaty chunks several times over. ethane though the feker did keep calling me “the nimbic” I will miss him.
The only things we got out of the whole mess was a 5 minutes heads up for the apocalypse and a letter from some deveranian scumbag. not surprisingly Zdanuk and corwin didn’t see why the dwarves needed to know who was behind things and maybe if nathander was still around it would have turned out differently. But he wasn’t , and it didn’t .
I think ember was a bit wored about things to, but she has hear own problems .
So we slogged back up the bloody tunnels to warn the dwarves. We finally made it but Before I could ethane ask where the pub was all hell broke loose . a horde of sputtering chitering abyssals started poring out of the tunnels. thousands of the things, they broke on the dwarven lines wave after wave of them, axes flashed ,abyssal heads roiled, black blood sprayed in sheets making the stone walls gleam.
Me and corwin where at the front cutting a swathe thru the enemy our new dwarfish companion sprayed magical fiery death and summoned his underground creatures to up the head count. Ember whispered to the rocks collapsing the roof causing boulders to fall like a terminal rain on the soulless monsters.
Just as the ranks of the abyssal where starting to thin and victory was in sight there came a shout from the rear. Zdanuk stood on top of one of the dwarven buildings threw back his head and welcomed the monstrous abyssal hordes!
He drew on the twisted power of the storm,
unleashing black fire and lightning on to the rear ranks of our alleys !!
Like quick silver I spun to face the betrayer. Releasing the catch on my x-bow to impale the storm zealot. But as my bolt leaped from the stock corwin swiped at my weapon forcing the shot off target.
The dwarves battled on with the second wave of monster , giant bird like creatures , spiting venom and tearing men in half with there beaks. me and corwin went at it, he swung his weapon in bone snapping arks but wasn’t quick enough to catch me . I ducked inside his guard and nutted the turncoat in his happy sack ,dropping the scumbag like a bag of spuds he tumbled in to the raging mellay when I turn my attention back to the mastermind of this madness he was beating a hasty retreat my bolt still lodged in his shoulder . then as I ready myself to hunt down the weezely bastard a cry cuts thru the fog of war. ember was in trouble the dwarves know longer knowing friend from foe where closing in on her!
I grabbed the nearest pole arm and vaulted above the crowded battle ,jumping from helmet to helmet I leaped to the aid of the fair lady. Together we fought threw the chaos grabbing our new companion on the way and fled. Leaving the inky darkness of that coldrealm.
