CHAPTER XXXXII – Session 8

After nearly battling a dragon, be it a young one, as we gathered for our 8th Session, there was as sense of relief I think.

Our group is in the middle of the mountains of Thaen, doing their best to get Zahn to potential new followers of Apollo.

“Alright guys, lets get to it,” spoke Johnny.

Our next day of travel through the mountains of Thaen was a quiet one…

With each of the Party members checking with themselves…

…trying to determine why they were taking such high risks with this Cleric who they’d barely known two weeks…

“We’ll camp soon,” spoke Chi confidently to Zahn.

The dark clouds above almost certainly meant rain was on the way.

Time would tell.

On first watch would be our Dragonborn Warrior Stigus…

Accompanying her was our Half Orc Paladin Tor-Atimus.

There watch would pass quietly.

On 2nd watch was our Elven Ranger Chi, and our Barbarian Faren.

An hour or so into their watch, while Faren sharpened his great Great Axe, Chi heard a sound he did not like.

“Troll…” he suddenly spoke just loud enough for Faren to hear.

Suddenly a 9′, 500lb Troll entered the camp.

It took a swipe at Chi with one of its’ claws, knocking him some 15′ away, gashed on his side.

Before Faren could raise his axe, it swiped him across the arm causing him to drop it.

Faren’s face turned red, and he started to RAGE and go into a FRENZY…

…he picks up his axe, and plunges it into the Trolls chest.

Suddenly a green glow goes over Faren, and he pulls his axe out of its’ chest, then strikes it again on its’ side.

Suddenly a 5′ diameter, 40′ tall beam of white light encumbrances the Troll, “DO FIRE DAMAGE IF POSSIBLE,” announces Dreyha who appears, her hands faced out towards the Troll, glowing green.

Zahn steps towards the Troll, one hand around his Sun Necklace, the other palm facing forward, “PESSULUM!” he announces and a glowing white light shoots from his hand towards the Troll, but it some how avoids it.

Chi sticks one of his arrows in the fire, then speaks some words under his breath, “VENATORES  MARCAM,” and a blue light only seen by him glows above the Troll’s head.

He then releases his bow, striking the Troll with a burning arrow in its’ stomach.

“RAHH!” it yells.

As the Troll tries to get his bearings, he feels the scorching of white flame from the beam of light around him.

He strikes out at Faren with a claw, and then again knocking the Barbarian back, and wounded…

it then leans over him and bites at his shoulder.

Suddenly steps forward the Tiefling Wizard Ren, his eyes and hands glowing red, “CHROMATI ORBIS,” and a 4″ orb of fire appears in his hands…

…he hurls it at the Troll.

…to Ren’s horror, the Troll moves and it instead strikes Faren, whose now badly wounded.

“My god,” speaks Ren.

Stigus then lights two of her arrows on fire, and stoots them at the Troll…

…but both miss as it moves again.

Kinner, their Drow/Dark Elf Ranger, speaks, “SANITATEM SERMO,” and a yellow flash of light passes over Faren healing the majority of his wounds.

Kinner then leaps towards the Troll swinging both of his rapiers…

…but sadly he misses as well.

Tor-Atimus leaps over the fire, “DIVINUS PERCUTIAT!” and his battle axe glows a yellow white light, and he strikes the Troll across the chest…

…the Troll falls to the ground.

Faren, most of his wounds healed, leaps at the Troll once more, and comes down with his axe across its’ skull….

…as the Troll breathes its’ last breath, it suddenly begins to rain.
