CHAPTER XV – Day 1

Zahn and his Party began their trek to the Barbarian Lands of Dudgek…

The Marching Order was as follows.

In front, was Stigus, the Dragonborn Fighter, on a large black horse…

…behind her was Zahn, Cleric, and Leader, and Tor-Atimus, Half Orc Paladin, side by side.

Zahn’s horse was tan, and Tor-Atimus’s was white and black.

Behind them was the Drow Bard Kinner, tuning his Violin, his horse was grey…

…and at the rear was the Tiefling Wizard Ren, on a white horse, and the Moon Elf Ranger Chi, on a chestnut steed.

“My name is Chi,” he spoke to Ren.

Ren bowed, “Ren, at your service.”

“It’s good they’re not calling me my nickname, ‘Red’,” with this Chi points at his very red hair.

“Ren and Red might be a bit confusing to folk newly traveling together, Ha” Chi concluded.

“Indeed my dear friend… Indeed,” replied Ren.

And just as Kinner was about to start playing his Violin, and singing, a two Warriors of Jor Patrol appeared riding towards them from one of the mountains to their West.

The first had white hair, an older sort…

…and the second was a Dwarf, with a long brown beard.

“Ho there,” spoke the white haired Warrior.

With this, Zahn gestured for the party to bring their horses to a halt, and road to the front.

“Hello there… I am Zahn, of the Apollo Order, from Despa,” he spoke.

“Well met, I am Jaggen, and this is Morlof… We’re just Patrolling the pathway leading into Jor… No need to hold you up… Take care,” he spoke, and waved them forward.

Hours later, when the sun started to set, the Party stopped.

Chi was quick to find wood, and start a campfire.

“Stigus, you take first watch,” spoke Zahn…

…Stigus nodded, and walked out of camp.

“I’m making some food for all,” spoke Chi.

Zahn nodded.

OUT OF GAME

Suddenly there was a knock on Johnny’s door…

…Stacy jumped up, and opened the door.

It was her friend LISA, who has shoulder length brown hair, and a nice smile.

“Hello,” she spoke quietly.

Stacy offered Lisa her burger and fries, as she hadn’t eaten them.

Lisa started to eat.

“Alright, lets continue,” spoke Johnny.

“Chi, take second watch, and Tor-Atimus take third watch,” spoke Zahn, they both nodded.

They all ate, and all but Stigus went to sleep.

A few hours later Stigus woke Chi, and a few hours later, Chi woke Tor-Atimus…

…the night went without any unexpected visitors, and so they started their Second Day of Travel.

During their Second day, they went from Grasslands, to Hills…

They spotted two Orcs along the way, but after scoping the Party, including the Half-Orc Tor-Atimus, who rose his hand to them in greetings, they continued on their way.

“In case I haven’t said, our journey to Drudgek will take 7 days…” Zahn proclaimed to the group.

“What will we do once we’re there?” questioned Stigus.

“I will approach their Leader, and discuss my Mission with him, or her,” Zahn explained.

“He may not see you, overall, the Barbarians of Drudgek keep to their selves…” explained Chi.

Zahn smiled, “We shall see… Thank you for that insight.”

Once again the sun went down, just as the Hills became Grasslands again.

The Watch order would be the same, but tonight Kinner decided to sing at the campfire as the others went to sleep.

“North we go… Barbarians to see… Zahn longs to share… His Legacy…

When Stigus ended her watch, and Chi started his, Kinner called it a night, and went to sleep as well.

During Chi’s watch, he saw movement, “Who goes there?”
