CHAPTER XIX – Treasure

“Alright, first things first, checking for Traps,” speaks Z as he looks over the 6 Treasure Chests.

“I’ll help,” Laris adds.

Z checks the first lock, “There’s no Trap, but it is locked,” he says.

“I’ll try and Pick it,” he adds as he takes out his Thieves Tools.


…he does it.

He then opens it to see that it’s full of Copper.

“Copper…” he says under his breath, then looks through it, but finds that there is nothing more.

“This whole things likely worth 5 Gold Pieces…” he moves onto the second Chest.

“Next Chest…” he speaks.


“You didn’t check to see if it was Trapped?” Laris says, seeing him go directly to opening it.

“No time, but I got it opened,” he replies with a grin.

He opens this one, and it is full of Silver, and a hand full of Gems.

“Quickly!” he says, then starts to fill 5 small sacks with it.

“Bring these to Stryke, Thalo and Ren,” he says, and Laris delivers the 5 sacks to them.

He then looks at the large Black Sack which is leaning up against the Chests.

He can’t seem to detect a Trap, so he looks in, but sees only darkness…

…he reaches inside, and to his surprise, a Vial seems to leap into his hand.

He pulls it out, “Give this to Ren,” and she does.

Suddenly 2 Goblins and an Ettin (2 Headed Giant), appear at the Northern Entrance to Strykes surprise.

Suddenly Thalo appears in front of Stryke, and kicks one of the Goblins.

“CHROMATI ORBIS,” I speak, summoning a Ball of Fire, I then hurl it at the Ettin, but he’s barely able to avoid it… And it doesn’t help that I’m stuck holding the string.

“NUBES AUTEM PUGIONIBUS,” speaks Kinner and the Cube of Spinning Yellow Glowing Daggers appears again, right in front of the Ettin.

The Goblins are able to avoid them, but the Ettin is not.

Chi, holding onto the other string, raises his other hand, “GELIDUS TANGE,” and a Giant Ghostly Hand appears by the Goblins, but they’re able to deflect it as it swings at them.

Stryke goes into a RAGE, and Recklessly Attacks the Ettin…

…striking it with her Battle Axe.

Her eyes turn light blue, and appear as wolves eyes, her hair turns grey and her Wolf Spirit fills Thalo who is near her.

Z ties the Large Black Bag to his waste, then moves in on the Goblins and Ettin, he too is affected by Stryke’s Wolf Spirit…

…and with one of his Rapiers he’s able to cut the Goblins throats, and take a slash at the Ettin.

Laris, also inspired by Stryke’s Wolf Spirit, pushes to the front and strikes the Ettin in the belly.

The Ettin yells in anger and strikes at Laris with his Battle Axe, but hits her shield, knocking her to one knee.

It then swings its’ Morning Star at Z, knocking him against the wall.

Thalo takes a blow at it with his Quarter Stff, striking it in the face, then with a kick.

The Ettin Roars!

I, running out of Spells, am stuck holding the string and watching.

Meanwhile Kinner’s Magically Yellow Daggers spin, slashing at the Ettin, whose not smart enough to move away from them.

Meanwhile Chi’s Ghostly hand takes takes a swipe at the Ettin, to no avail.

Stryke tries to swing at the Ettin, and just as she’s about to miss, Kinner plays his fiddle, Casting a Yellow Glow over her, enabling her to hit the Giant…

With this the Ettin falls to its’ knees.

Z, wounded, moves in once more, and sticks his Rapier through its throat, killing it.

“We’ve got to get out of here, forget the other 4 Chests,” speaks Z.

All agree, but realize when they release the strings, Guards will be summoned.

“RELEASE!” I speak, and they do, and we flee…

…but before we do.

“Come close,” Thalo says, and we all come together.

“TRANSIET SINE AUTEM VESTIGIUM,” he speaks with his eyes closed, and the mysterious dark smoke appears around us once more, as it did when we first entered the Lair.

The next moments though we are Stealthed, were terrifying…

We toar through all the passage ways and rooms we’d been through, Thalo’s smoke blending us into the shadows…

In the background we could hear Goblins yelling where we had stolen from their Treasure.

As we toar through, we didn’t come upon one Guard Patrol, which was miraculous…

…soon enough we reached the stairs which lead us inside the Lair, and sprinted up them…

…Stryke twisted her ankle a bit as we ran, but hobbled quickly keeping pace…

Soon we were outside the cave under the moon’s light, and had only one more Creature to get by…

…the Chimera.

All of us, save Stryke, were able to go around it across the moving rock….

…but Stryke, because of her ankle was having trouble.

Thalo decided to put her on his back, and carried her until we were beyond the Chimera…

To our surprise, as we all fell to our knees laughing, and sweating, z suddenly looked up and two SCOUT SOLDIERS OF TRU, stood before him.

“Have you done it… Have you slain the Chimera?” they asked.
