Unfortunately for our heroes, their journey was far from uneventful, and what they wanted to be a trip into civilization to look for a magic vendor turned into a fight for the lives of Kjell's friends.

As they traveled north, they came across a grippli being tied up by a band of bugbears. Naturally, they intervened and saved him. What they found was that this particular frogling was a member of the band Kjell traveled with long ago. He was glad to hear that his friends were still traveling together, but feared the worst when he learned that the rest had been captured by a large band of orcs.

Bugbears! Note: The die is Chirk the grippli. The cough drop
is Mercy's feline animal companion.
After healing Chirk and hearing his tale, the group set out to rescue the rest of Kjell's old friends. What they found was intimidating... over twenty orcs in an old ruined temple, chanting around an altar.


It looked as though two of Kjell's friends, an oread and a drow, were about to be sacrificed in some foul ritual. Our heroes set the orcs' tents on fire in hopes of distracting them enough to interrupt the ritual, but it didn't work. The armored orcs advanced on the heroes, but the majority of them continued their chanting, and their leader went on tying the two rangers to the altar.

As the battle raged on, the orc leader finished his work and screamed, "It is done!" As he did, a mist appeared near the altar, and two vampire spawn materialized from it. They moved toward the tied rangers, but when the adventurers moved in, the vampires turned their attention to their attackers.

After a hard fought battle, the heroes emerged victorious yet again. Kjell's friends will occupy the tower while he and the others are out adventuring, and perhaps our heroes will finally make it to Dagger Falls the next time we meet.
