CHAPTER XXXVII – Session 7

It had been two weeks since our last Session.

I must admit, I hadn’t thought of D & D (Dungeons & Dragons) for the first 11 days…

Caught up in school work etc.

But the last three days thoughts of entering the Thaen Mountains began to rise within me.

When I arrived at Johnny’s, his sister Stacy had made us some sort of casserole, that smelled very good.

She sat it in the middle of  the coffee table atop a couple oven mitts…

And sat out 7 plates, 7 forks and a serving utensil.

Barry arrive next, then Mike.

Trevor, as usual, was already there.

I do believe he had slept over the night before.

Last to arrive was Lisa, but she was on time none the less.

We ate, and talked about our last couple weeks to one another, until…

“It’s time,” spoke Johnny, who, once again, fastened on his blue Dungeon Master cape.

“Let us begin…”

As the Party made their way up the rough incline of the Eastern Peaks of Thaen, they had to dismount, and pull their horses by their reigns.

The weather became colder and colder as the day went on, and when night came, they set up camp.

Kinner collected wood, and Faren lit the fire.

Faren then began cooking the food for the group, as Ren kneeled down near him.

“The temperatures dropped quite a bit,” spoke Ren.

Faren glanced at him, then back to the food.

Ren, realizing Faren is a Barbarian, and hadn’t noticed, makes his way to Kinner.

“Getting chilly,” he speaks.

Kinner looks at him, “Yeah… Might snow as we get further in.”

The Party eats, and those who aren’t on watch get some rest.

The next morning they continue upward, and further east…

…as they go down the other side, and make their way further into the mountains of Thaen, the rock around them begins to look more and more black, like slate.

“Stigus,” spoke Zahn.

Stigus came to Zahn’s side.

“What do you make of this rock,” questioned Zahn.

“I’ve seen it around Dragon Lairs…” she responded.

“Dragon Lairs…” he responds.

She nodded in reply.

Just as the Party was about to make camp for the night, they came across a fairly large cave against one part of the mountain.

Stigus approached Zahn, “I’m not sure we should make camp here…”

Tor-Atimus approaches as well, “What is it?”

Suddenly a shadow of wings passes over them…

…Zahn jumps, then realizes it’s Dreyha and Chi.

In Giant Eagle form Dreyha lands, and Chi dismounts.

All are glad to see both Chi and Dreyha.

Dreyha approaches Zahn, “You’re not going to set camp her are you?”

Meanwhile Chi moves closer to the cave entrance.

“I’m pretty sure this might be some kind of a Lair,” he speaks.
