“After getting my arm (and boob) fixed I feel tainted and disconnected from the divine. I feel like I just can’t do as much as I used to. I feel lost, and wrong, and confused about why Lanna would abandon/punish me when I helped to SAVE the gods, her Included.
We head down to the capital to see the Emerald Circle for ourselves. I do not trust sending messages after the ordeal with Gravis. First night, we made it to O, and made friends with the constable Merk, who called us the Champions of Stonehell. I like that. Next night we got to witchesmalsdflakdfjlakjsdf or wahtever the hell its called. We stayed at a slummy inn where I had to sleep in a filthy hammock. Met a dwarf, shared stories.
On the third day, we are almost to the border and…there are THREE largish brown dragons flying in the air. It’s savanna type terrain. We try to take cover amongst some rocks when this huge cloud of dust blows in. We also hear some riders coming towards us. It’s a 120’ wide wall of hot, dry air and dust, coming from the dragons, it burns the fuck out of us. Sasha, Xino, and Kilmore are all down. One dragon gets taken down with a fireball? Coming from the riders. They were guards of house Vadrama (capital of Tormec), and a chick with a staff. They shot one down and all got breath blasted to shit. None survived. We killed off the first one that fell. The last big guy, Kilmore webbed and Lester stabbed it in the knee and made the eyes freaking explode! Xino died, we buried her. We lost a damn good warrior today.
There wasn’t any treasure, so we just harvested dragon parts, and headed towards a bluff about 10 miles away.
Near this watering hole there’s this big ugly Ogre with a club, who has just killed something. I start talking to him and he says his tribe is sworn to protect the dragons. He’s a little mad we killed them. They had names. Turns out there’s 4 ogre dudes. Kilmore and Efthalia command two to “die”. The big leader drops like a sack of beans and Lester promptly stabs him in the throat twice. Kilmore sleeps another one. As the leaser is flailing about he drops his massive club and starts to back away. Lester guts him with his new blade arm and we finish the last one off, fortunately without receiving much damage. Inside the bluff is a hot spring where the dragons lived. LOTS and lots of treasure. It’s burning hot, which sucks. But shit there’s a lot of it…as well as a ogre village off to the side. We are going to need to make some dragon skin or elephant hide sacks, or some sort of cart, etc. (I KNEW we should have brought our cart!)" – Efthalia Megalos
