CHAPTER XXI – Captor

On the 8th day of travel, the Party moved across the Drudgek grasslands North West of Drudgek Keep.

No one made an effort to speak to the Barbarian Faren, as he rode up the rear of the group.

The Marching Order was Stigus and Chi in front, with Zahn and Tor-Atimus behind them.

And then the two slave (now free) girls, named ZARA and PRIN.

Behind them, the Bandit (now ex bandit), TOTO.

Behind him was Ren and Kinner…

…and then Faren.

When they made camp, Stigus would take first watch, but Faren would secretly be awake as well.

Within the first hour of watch, Stigus heard a crunching sound coming from some 30 feet from camp.

She moved into the dark, her Darkvision made it easy to see, and she quickly came across an Ogre eating a Deer.

Unnoticed by the Ogre, she backed her way back into camp and woke Tor-Atimus and Chi…

…both who spoke the language of ‘Giant’, which is what Ogres also speak.

Tor-Atimus went out to the Ogre, and was able to convince it to move on…

…it took its deer with it.

“I must say, traveling with you Tor-Atimus, being a Half Orc, does change things a bit…” spoke Stigus.

“Orcs and I have never gotten along… But I consider you a friend Tor-Atimus,” added Chi, who stuck his hand out.

Tot-Atimus grimaced, and shook it.

“I do believe it’s my watch,” continued Chi.

All was quiet on Chi’s watch, until…

…out of nowhere two Orcs ran into the camp, covered the Elven Ranger’s mouth, and fled the camp with him.

Once some 40 feet away from camp, they tried to knock Chi unconscious, but his Elven slyness allowed him to out maneuver them…

Suddenly a third Orc came leaping at him and Chi ducked completely, causing the Orc to tumble on the ground.

A forth then came, but he dodged him as well…

…unfortunately Chi did not see the fifth behind him, who knocked him out with a rock to the head.
