CHAPTER I – Return To Jor – CHAPTER II – Laris – CHAPTER III – Dwarfport


Dwarfport was magnificent…

Well protected by Dwarven Guard, though you still need to watch your coin purse.

My (Ren) plan was to head to the guarded city of TRO, but I may just stay here for a few days…

I’ll have to check with Chi and Kinner…

They spent most of their time in the ‘Ye Old Tankard’ tavern, and who could blame them…

…meanwhile I made my way around the City of Dwarfport.

Most Ports aren’t cities, but Dwarfport definitely is.

I keep running into Laris, or she keeps running into me/us, hard to say…

…Anyway I heard there was some sort of Arena style fighting going on, where people could fight for money, and onlookers could place bets, and I wanted to check it out.

Laris joined me.

When we arrived, there were hundreds of people surrounding a sunken, well lit, pit where entries competed.

The first two were a larger, muscular bald Human, and a black Dragonborne…


“Go ahead and describe your Character Mike,” spoke Johnny.

“Sure… My Character is a Black Dragonborne Monk… He’s 6’4″ tall, 250lbs, and young,” spoke Mike.

“Lets continue,” spoke Johnny.

The large muscular dude really laid into the Dragonborne at first, but then its’ yellow eyes lit up, and he hit the Human with multiple blows, nearly knocking him unconscious…

…he was declared the winner…

…too bad we bet on the bald guy.

When the Dragonborne exited the pit, I approached him, “Nice fight…” I spoke.

“THALO… The name’s Thalo… Just keeping in shape,” he replied.

“Facinating method,” interjected Laris, “Which Monistary do you belong to?”

He did not answer, and walked away.

“Must have hit a nerve,” I spoke.

Next to fight was the Barbarian girl from the night before in the tavern.

She mopped the floor with the Half Elf she fought, then looked my way again…

…I have to say, she gives me the distinct feeling of being hunted.

When we returned to the tavern, Kinner was caught up in a high stakes poker game, while Chi watched.

“How’s he doing?” I asked.

“He’s holding his own, but I think it cost him 150 gold to buy in…” explained Chi.

Just then, a fight broke out at a back table…

…three Fighter dudes taking on one black masked, hooded, and cloaked guy…

…boy could he move…

…they couldn’t get a hand on him.

Pretty soon they got him and threw him out of the tavern.

Laris followed him outside…

The cloaked figure stood up, dusted himself off, and made his way down the street.

Laris continued to follow him, but then he disappeared down a alleyway.

Perhaps unwisely, she followed him down the dark alley.

Suddenly dropping from above and behind her, he reappeared baring two rapiers.

“Can I help you with something?” he asked.

“She’s with me,” I spoke appearing behind him out of thin air.

“INVISIBILITY… Impressive,” he spoke in a strange gravely kind of voice.

“Now if you don’t mind,” he spoke, then turned to leave the alley…

…”Why did those men throw you out?” questioned Laris.

The man froze, turned around, and pulled down his mask…

…what we saw was completely foreign to me…

…he looked to be part Hobgoblin, part Orc…

But his skin was blue?

“Because I look like this…” he spoke.

“A Blu Hob,” Laris replied.

I looked at her in amazement, what in the world is a Blu Hob..

“That’s right… You two are pretty sharp, I’ll give you that,” he replied, then turned to go once more.

“I will not tolerate this!” Laris spoke then wooshed by the Blu Hob towards the tavern.

He and I followed her there.

After quite a tussle, Laris laid the three of them out…

The Barbarian girl was watching as well, and seemed impressed.

“Is she always like this?” questioned the Blu Hob.

…”Yup,” I replied.
