CHAPTER XXV – The Druid Jarothh

The Party road all day, and through the night, putting a large distance between them and the Black Rock Orcs.

They finally stopped to get water, and take a short rest.

Chi looks at Zahn, “What you’re trying to do here in Galdur, doesn’t look to be an easy thing…”

Zahn took a beat, then replied, “I know… And I want all of you to know, should you decide to part ways from my Group, you will be paid for the whole week.”

“I think I can speak for all of us when I say, we’re not worried about getting paid, we’re worried for our lives,” Chi replies.

“Then leave… This is our path,” speaks Tor-Atimus confidently, gesturing towards Zahn.

“I forsee great things for you Zahn… I for one won’t be ‘departing’,” interjects Ren with a smile.

“My only wondering is if I’m over my head here… I’m but a Hunter from Krieg,” speaks Stigus.

“These are the type of stories I sing about… I’m convinced I’m meant to be here, to share them with the land,” speaks Kinner excitedly as he tunes his fiddle.

“Either way… We should consult the High Druid Jarothh, of the Green Tower, about the Black Rock Orcs…” interjects Chi.

“He will not help us… He sits up high in his tower, pondering the land, and his kind… Not the doings of some random Adventurers…” proclaims Faren.

Chi gets in Faren’s face, “And why should we trust you Barbarian… We don’t even know why you’re here.”

Faren does not back down, and postures to Rage…

…”Hold now,” speaks Zahn who steps between them, backing each back.

“I’m afraid Chi’s right Faren… We have no idea of your intentions, only that you say Noria does not intend to hurt us,” Zahn continues.

Faren looks frustrated, longing to disclose the truth, instead he goes to his horse.

“Where is this Druid you speak of Chi?” questions Zahn.

“A days ride, along our path towards Thaen,” Chi replies.

Zahn looks at the group, they all seem ok with it.

“To the Green Tower then…” proclaims Zahn, and they all mount, and ride on.


The doorbell rings.

“PIZZA!” the Players all yell.

Johnny goes to the door and pays the man, then brings three large pizzas into the room.

“This is getting good,” I say.

“I’m just glad I’m back in play,” replies Trevor.

“I wonder what this Druid is going to be like,” wonders Barry.

“I feel kind of lame, and useless so far,” Stacy says.

“Trust me, you’ll feel your use in battle,” replies Trevor as he takes a bite of pizza.

“Well, we battled, and you guys had it under control,” replies Stacy.

“You can always ‘Duel Class’ if you’re not satisfied as a Warrior,” speaks Johnny.

“Hmm… Maybe,” replies Stacy.

“Alright, lets get back to it!” announces Johnny.
