Start of Session:
4 Tarsakh, 1493 3:30 am
As the group tries to catch their breath from the fight at Furrow’s End, the halfling cleric Sevembra Tumbleleaf, rushes into the courtyard looking for help. She has spotted another group of ogres and bugbears skulking near the workers’ barracks. The party follows her, accompanied by Naxene Drathkala and Oren Yogilvy. Sevembra takes them down the main road heading south, and after about 1-2 miles, they see an Ogre, bugbears, and some goblins fighting outside the barracks. Defending the families of Goldenfields is the awakened tree Lifferlas and a young female acolyte the group encountered previously in the Abbey. Sevembra heads out to search for other invaders.
Rushing into action, the group aids the defenders, quickly killing the bugbears and protecting the acolyte Zi Liang. Although slow to anger, Litterlas begins killing the attackers threatening “his” children, slamming limbs time and again, killing goblins and bugbears in single blows. Zarn and Houblon launch into the melee as the attackers gain strength by more ogres, bugbears and goblins. Aaron incapacitates one ogre with Tasha’s Hideous Laughter. He moves behind the “meat shield” fighters. Galadhon and Eleindar keep the creatures off the flanks with arrow fire. Oren protects Zi Liang, while Naxene shows her powers with a vicious Lightning Bolt spell and some Magic Missiles.
Just as the battle turns to the party’s favor, 2 lumbering Hill Giants appear, along with goblin archers. The hill giants beat on Houblon and Zarn. Erky provides healing to keep the warriors in action. Eleindar and Galadhon move to protect Zi Liang, who becomes surrounded by goblins. As the group whittles down the smaller creatures, they focus damage on the giants. In short order, they kill them both. The remaining goblins run into the darkness, leaving the party bloodied but victorious.
End of Session.
