Session 71

Frost observed the movements of the Dray
A disturbance and fighting in another part of the city nearby alerted the Dray and caused some to abandon their post and investigate
After the fighting went quiet 2 more Dray were sent to see what was going on
A plan was for muls to run towards the tower and get jekall and solzak close enough to attack
They got close but as the Dray used the command word on the Muls nothing happened so the Dray aimed the ballista and the other Dray reached for an alarm gong
The group were quicker and fired on the dray with their chatkchas
Jekall using his psionic abilities caused one of the Dray to attack the other denting the alarm gong and causing confusion in the tower whilst solzak teleported into the tower
The Dray tried to raise the alarm but his alarm was broken
Solzak sneaked onto the roof of the tower and taking careful aim shot one of the dray through the neck, killing it instantly
The remaining Dray managed to loose of a shot of the ballista but shot wild of Jekall. He then turned and breathed fire on Solzak. Solzak dodged nimbly and escaped with only a small scorch mark on his cloak
Solzak then set off a cloud of black shadowy smoke such that even from his vantage poin a mile away Frost could see and saw it as a sign to start moving closer
The mul, unnafected by the darkness, let loose another volley of their chatkchas and finally the Dray fell
Quickly searching the tower to find it empty they were also surprised to discover how the tower was not overly secure, almost as if they expected not to be attacked
Some minutes passed and they received a warning that a group of 10 shapes – possibly Eladrin – were headed their way. Frost was on his way but would not be there before them
Jekall and Solzak looked but could not see their approach so rather than risk being trapped in the tower stood outside and waited peacefully for the Eladrin
Moments later the Muls and Jekall were decorated around their shadows with arrows
Eladrin stepped forward led by Gilam. He is part of a group of Eladrin who are trying to free the city from the grip of the Dray and Tareks, but it has been difficult as up until recently their king and kingdom was under a curse. This has now been lifted and the Eladrin have begun to take back their land, but now it may be too late
Gilam agrees to take the group to see the King ‘Alaric’ at the palace and discuss if both groups would be able to work together to achieve the same ends
Jekall mentions that more of the group wait outside the city to come in when safe. Gilam will send a messenger to greet them, but their way through the city is through stealth and so will take no responsibility for the trouble caused by 9 Brohg’s marching through!
