CHAPTER XXXIII – Ambush

Zahn, Tor-Atimus, Kinner, Ren, Stigus and Faren continued north through the hills east of Thaen.

When darkness came, Kinner gathered wood, and started a fire.

“I’m afraid we will be without Chi’s cooking tonight…” spoke Zahn half in jest.

“I’m not that bad at cooking,” spoke Faren.

Zahn smacked him on the shoulder, “Good, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to dry rations.”

The six of them ate well, and drank only a little, before all but Stigus and Faren went to sleep…

…they were first watch.

A couple hours passed, when unbeknownst to either of them 6 Robbers had gathered in the dark beyond the south western end of camp to avenge their two friends struck down by Stigus and Faren.

The first Robber drew back his bow, and was about to shoot at the Barbarian, when his bow string broke, causing him to shoot one of the other Robbers foot.

“AHH!” he yelled.

“WE’RE UNDER ATTACK!” bellowed Faren, which woke the camp.

“FULGAR ORBIS,” spoke Ren, as he stood and circled his hands together, forming an ORB OF LIGHTNING, and hurling it at one of the Robbers, turning him to ash.

Faren grabbing his Great Axe, and going into a Rage, trips on a rock and falls to one knee.

Kinner grabs his fiddle and starts to sing an Inspiring tune, throwing a yellow glow over Faren, making him feel stronger.

Meanwhile the 5 remaining Robbers release their bows…

…the first two miss completely, but the third strikes Faren in the shoulder.

The fourth misses, but the final Robber barely wings Kinner with an arrow.

“Ouch,” he says in the middle of his song.

Stigus then draws back her Long Bow, and shoots one of the Robbers.

Followed by Tor-Atimus, who hurls his hand axe at the same Robber, finishing him off.

“SACRIS FLAMMA,” speaks ZAHN and a flash of flame shoots towards one of the remaining Robbers, but he avoids it.

“FULGAR ORBIS!” speaks Ren once more, and another Orb of Lightning shoots towards, and incinerates another Robber.

Faren tries to get up but struggles, as he tries to avoid the fire, lightning and arrows wizzing by him.

Meanwhile the remaining three Robbers release their bows once more, one missing, and the other two striking Faren slightly.

Kinner continues to play and sing, and Stigus glows yellow as well, and feels charged by his song.

Stigus draws back again, shoots, and kills one of the Robbers.

Tor-Atimus lays one hand on Faren’s shoulder, and a white light heals most of the wound.

At this point Zahn steps into the middle of camp, his eyes and hands glowing a golden white light, “PESSULUM!” he speaks, and a great flash of golden white light streaks towards the two remaining Robbers, and incinerates them…

…he then falls to his knees, “Forgive me,” he speaks.

Tor-Atimus approaches Zahn, and helps him to his feet, “Apollo would not allow it, if it was not needed,” he spoke.

Zahn nodded, though his eyes seemed shaken by the destruction.

“Is everyone alright,” spoke Zahn.

Stigus was bandaging Kinners slight wound, “He’ll be alright.”

Faren stands, “Only my pride is hurt… My shoulder is mended, and I am tending to the others,” he spoke as he bandages his side where two arrows slashed him.

“We’re making too many enemies out here,” spoke Ren.

“Your magic was most impressive Ren,” spoke Kinner.

Ren smiled, “Saw you do a bit yourself with your Music and Singing,” he replied.

“Second watch, Tor-Atimus and Kinner,” spoke Zahn.

“The rest of us, lets get some sleep,” he concluded.
