This adventure log is shorter than the others as the attack on the Stag Lords hill fort was a lengthy process. Explorers in this session were Calgun, Teska, Solomon (new), Mary-Gold and Kesten Garess
Erustus 19 – The explorers recruited Kesten to join them on their attack on the fort and Ada the explorers resident recruiter at Oleg’s was able to recruit a seemingly able inquisitor by the name of Solomon to join them. Travelled south from Oleg’s and ran afoul of 4 grigs looking to settle an old score with Silver. After learning that Silver was deceased the grigs departed allowing the others to pass.
Erustus 20 – Travelling south to the bandit fort
Erustus 21 – Arrive at the fort. The explorers attempted to infiltrate the fort as new bandits. Bringing some of their horses loaded with goods and leaving others behind they were allowed into the bandit keep only to be surrounded and attacked!
Fighting off the bandits proved easier than originally thought especially when one of the bandits a former paladin of Erastil named Akiros joined the fray and assisted the explorers! Joining his might to theirs!
After the initial encounter, Akiros quickly lead them into the heart of the fort where they encountered Dovan, Auchs and eventually the Stag Lord himself awaking from a drunken bender! Keston slew Dovan with a mighty slice of his great sword while the others battled Auchs and Teska engaged in an archer battle with the Stag Lord!
Eventually with Dovan and Auchs dead the Stag Lord continued to cause problems for the explorers with his deadly bow, until eventually he was slain!
Exhausted and using what healing they had left the explorers went through the rest of the fort looking for more resistance, but any bandits still alive had either fled or died to their mighty blades and arrows!
The explorers then went to the sub-level where Akiros warned the father and powerful spellcaster of the Stag Lord waited. Screams of Anti-Gravity acid spewing wolverine filled the darkness as the explorers engaged the deadly druid! Eventually slaying him!
Erustus 22 – Inventory and loading goods from the Stag Lords fort
Erustus 23 – Loaded all the horses and setout at a walking pace from Olegs. Akiros, Solomon and Kesten lead the pack horses while Teska, Calgun and Mary-Gold travelled to Nettles crossing with the body of the Stag Lord.
