CHAPTER XXVI – Dinner’s At 8

As the Party entered the Hilly Region of THE GREEN TOWER, they could see its’ 7 story lake stone structure standing high in the sky…

Upon its’ walls were vines and flwoers of the land making the tower almost appear green.

Kinner took note of two Gnolls standing on a near bye hill, seeming to be watching the Party…

Chi confirmed that thies area, and the rocky regions they just passed through, were full of Gnolls.

Upon the Party’s arrival to the Tower doors, Zahn, Tor-Atimus and Chi all dismounted.

“The rest of you stay here,” spoke Zahn.

“How do we let him know we’re here?” questioned Tor-Atimus.

“He knows we’re here,” replied Chi.

Suddenly a black raven flew before them, and transformed into an extremely beautifully green and gold robed, male, Wood Elf.

“Why have you come…” spoke the Wood Elf, the energy exuding from him nearly overwhelming the three of them.

“I am Zahn, a Cleric of Apollo–” Zahn started to say.

“–I asked you why you have come…” demanded the Wood Elf as the great tower doors began to open behind him.

“We came to speak to the High Druid JAROTHH…” spoke Chi, who stepped forward slightly.

Meanwhile the Wood Elf entered the tower, into what was an amazing garden with a beautiful fountain in the middle of the room.

“Come…” the Wood Elf spoke, and so they followed him into the tower.

Sunlight beams fell upon the flowers and water from windows above them.

Upon one of the walls a wooden stairway lead upward.

“We’ve had a conflict with the Black Rock Orcs along the rockland pass between here and Drudgek,” Chi continued.

Meanwhile a Party of some 30 or more Gnoll Hunters arrived outside the tower, surrounding the rest of Zahn’s Party.

The Wood Elf sat by the fountain and pet some birds that gathered around him.

“And how is this a matter for me,” spoke the Wood Elf.

With this, the Wood Elf turned and gazed at Zahn.

“Are you Jarothh?” questioned Zahn…

“You are pure of heart Cleric… Though your God is a fool…” he spoke, then turned his gaze towards Chi.

“Tell the Gnolls  that I am not in danger, and they are not needed…” his gaze then returned to Zahn, “Your Party shall stay here tonight… We will dine, and discuss your ‘mission’ later…” he spoke as he began to go up the stairs.

Chi looked outside and to his surprise the Party was surrounded by Gnolls.

“And I am Jarothh,” were his last words as he disappeared up the stairs.
