CHAPTER XXXI – The 12th Day

Zahn had not returned from walking off to ponder his Party’s options.

Meanwhile, as per Tor-Atimus’s instruction, Chi, Stigus and Faren each stood guard on the outskirts of camp.

Unknown to them, three Robbers were watching them.

And when Chi finally caught view of them, they ran off…

…and Tor Atimus would not allow anyone to follow them.

“They will return… And in greater number,” spoke Chi with some sense of urgency.

“We can’t afford to split the group right now,” replied Tor-Atimus with frustration in his voice…

…but not frustration with Chi, but rather their situation.

Zahn finally returned and sat by the fire.

“We must determine a home base,” he spoke.

“For one, Zara and Prin (The two freed slave girls from Drudgek) shouldn’t be traveling with us into ‘uncharted’ territory,” he continued.

“Perhaps I should take them to Speahr Torn… My homeland… It’s only two days east of here…” spoke Chi.

“And you are on good terms with your people?” inquired Tor-Atimus.

“Good enough… I mean they are primarily High Elf, and I am a Moon Elf, but yes, I don’t foresee any complications,” replied Chi.

“This isn’t a terrible idea… Though you will be sorely missed… You, and your Ranger ways,” spoke Zahn.

“Yes… Lets do it… And when Drayha returns, I will send her to retrieve you in Eagle form,” Zahn concluded.

“And we will stay here?” questions Kinner.

“No… We will continue towards Thaen… Drayha will come to us wherever we are I’m sure…” replies Zahn.

“Take Toto too…” added Zahn.

“But I can be of help…” spoke the once bandit.

“You’re of greater help aiding Chi in protecting the maidens,” explained Zahn.

And so the Party split, Chi, Toto, Zara and Prin made theire way east towards Speahr Torn, and the rest continued north, north west, towards the ‘uncharted’ lands of Thaen.

OUT OF GAME

“And that’s the end of Session 5,” spoke Johnny.

“Sheesh, things are getting complicated,” spoke Barry as he put his stuff into his backpack.

“You were right, I’m starting to feel more involved,” spoke Stacy.

Johnny smiled at that, “Good, because they’re going to need you.”

Tired, we all parted, wondering what the future held for our group.
