Last Session was a cliff hanger.

Due to creativity, skill and diligence, our Party has yet to see battle.

And yet we ended last Session with one of our Party Members, Trevor’s Elven Ranger Chi, being captured by a Party of Orcs.

As I sit on the bus heading to Johnny’s house, I can’t wait to see how our Party responds.

Being it was the Ranger who was taken, it might be rough to track them down without him.

I enter Johnny’s house 20 minutes later, 10 minutes early as usual.

“What’s up Connor,” speaks Trevor, more friendly than usual.

Perhaps he’s just more relaxed because his Character is captured…

…he’ll likely be chillen, and watching us play.

Stacy and her friend Lisa come in, “Hello Connor,” says Stacy.

I’m speechless, but reply, “Hello.”

Lisa waves as well as they go upstairs to Stacy’s room.

I get my stuff out of my backpack, and Barry comes in.

“Hello, hello!” he proclaims.

“We’re going to be ordering some pizza’s if you guys want in,” speaks Johnny.

“I’m in, how much do you need,” I ask.

“Five bucks each is fine,” he replies.

Mike arrives, “Hey Barry, Trevor, Conner, Johnny.”

All of us chip in for pizza, Stacy and Lisa come down stairs, and we begin.

“Let me see that,” speaks Faren, the Drudgek Barbarian who the Barbarian Prince Noria has sent with the Party for some mysterious reason…

He kneels down and looks at the tracks, “These are Black Stone Orcs… Their Tribe is 4 hours from here on foot… This Party has a two hour lead on us, but on horse we have a chance to reach them just as they enter their Tribes territory…”

“They’ve come for me, not the Elf,” speaks Tor-Atimus grimly.

“How can you possibly know that,” replies Kinner.

“Of course… Because you’re a Half Orc… Or is it because you’re a Paladin…” interjects Ren.

“Both,” replies Tor-Atimus.

“Well, we haven’t got much time, to our horses!” proclaims Zahn.

“Someone needs to stay here with Zara and Prin,” speaks Tor-Atimus.

“I’ll stay,” says Toto.

“I can stay as well,” adds Kinner.

“No Kinner, we may need your tricks,” replies Zahn.

And so the Party takes off, two hours behind them, it will take them two hours to catch up.
