Scales of War

The Way of the Bat: Justice Tempered in Darkness – Chapter 4, Part: 3 (EXCERPTS)

I went out to familiarize myself with the city, and search for anything that could be useful the following night. While I was surveying Telicanthus’s house, I saw a githyanki wearing the same clothing as the ones who attacked the monastery. I chased the gith to an abandoned building, which I later learned was an old temple of Ioun. I was able to sneak in undetected and spy on the gith for a while. He had an ambush waiting for me and my friends. His allies were lead by someone known as the “Filth King”. With the new magic tattoos we all acquired, I was able to contact the group and call them for help.

Since they weren’t expecting us to be aware of the plan, we were able to pretty handily turn the tables on them. They didn’t last that long. After we bested them, we found a secret passage. In the main chapel, we found the Filth King and more of his subjects. The King proved to be unable to stand up to us, and he also quickly fell. After we defeated the King and his men, we found a huge pile of treasure. Before we could lay claim to the treasure, though, it animated. Taking the form of a three-headed dragon, the treasure pile attacked us. The fight proved to be the more challenging one of the night, but once we defeated it, the treasure was ours.

There was another secret door beyond the treasure hoard. I went ahead to scope out what lay at the bottom and I found several corpses in a room covered in old scribbles. The others quickly joined me and as they did the corpses animated. We had to defeat what once were the priests of Ioun. Their entombment had driven them insane but they were no match for us. After putting them to rest we were able to examine the walls of the chamber, which were covered in layer upon layer of writing. I was able to pick out some Elven, but not much else. After spending a great deal of time poring over the writing we were able to piece together a story.

Auglos founded the outpost of Auger. He created a powerful scrying device. It was a huge glass globe the color of the evening sky and could send seemingly anywhere, even across planes, as long as the recipient had a receiving mirror attuned to it. Auglos sold these attuned mirrors for a fortune, usually to powerful merchant guilds or various rulers across the land. He never told his customers that at any moment he could see and hear everything happening in the vicinity of these mirrors. Auglos learned all kinds of secrets. And he sold these secrets, making an even bigger fortune. There was one problem, though. The glass globe created psychic pulses in the Astral Sea whenever it was used. Eventually the githyanki in the city of Tu’narath were drawn to the psychic pulses. The Lich Queen Vlaakith herself named this device the Bitter Glass and decreed that the psychic pollution must be eliminated. This lead to the destruction of Auger by the gith.

There was something else on the walls. Something very strange. There was a message personally addressed to Verne that told him of Telicanthus and how he had found the Bitter Glass. Of all the unusual members of our group, Verne is arguably the strangest. This new development, while beneficial in this circumstance, could have big implications for the future. I think I’ll be keeping my eye on Verne much more closely.

The next morning Amyria brought us to the meeting hall. We met with the leaders of the Coalition. Kalad was representing the forces of Overlook. A copper dragon named Fariex was there, disguised as a mortal, and he pledged to aid the Coalition with his vast wealth. Caliandra, a very old elf, represented the elves and eladrin. Lord Divian Torrance represented the kingdom of Sayre. And there was a high priest named Inogo who represented the religion of Ertharis. Ordos and his githzerai were welcomed in to the assembly, as well. My compatriots and I began discussing the war with the assembled leaders. They were initially obstinate and difficult to sway, but we managed to convince them that the risk the githyanki posed would require them to work together. And we now have a new mission. We need to journey to a city of magic which may already have fallen to the gith. But first, there was something on our agenda. A dinner party.

Telicanthus’s dinner party was that evening. I prepared by picking up a few items that could come in handy, including some potions that would allow me to disguise myself for a few minutes at a time.

Once inside the house I took stock of the area the party was in. I was able to find a private washroom where I took the opportunity to turn invisible. From there I scuttled my way to the kitchen area. It didn’t take long to see who I should follow from there. All the kitchen staff were afraid of the same individual. Following him, I made my way into a secret passage and down into the old ruins of Auger that lay below Telicanthus’s estate. There, in the center of a large chamber, and supported by several pylons of many different materials, I saw the Bitter Glass. There was a group inside the orb, and they were performing some kind of ritual.

The one that I followed ordered a couple guards to follow him and talked about leading Madmartigan’s Men (and Ithyk) out of the house to kill us. I sent a message to the others so they could meet me in the kitchen. Then I raced up and sabotaged the secret door mechanism. Using the potion I bought, I took the form of the man that I had followed and went into the kitchen to dismiss the staff. From there I lead the others down into the chamber with the Bitter Glass and we were able to get the drop on the ritualists. With their concentration broken, the energies contained in the globe lashed out at them and helped us bring them down.

Shortly after we dispatched the ritual casters, we were joined by Telicanthus himself, as well as several of his men. The fight waged across the large open chamber. It was a thrilling battle, and in the end, we defeated all of our assailants. And with their defeat, we have the Bitter Glass and can destroy it, cutting off the means for the gith to communicate with each other across vast distances. It is a tremendous victory.

4th Message to Baron Glasrael

Kage smiled at his reflection in the mirror as he finished applying the black lip paint. With an extravagant flourish he spun around with his arms out and chest puffed out. Dio, the book imp, glanced up from his infernal text as this happened with a quizzical look on his face as Kage excitedly made his pronouncement.
“I look friggin’ awesome!!" Dio cocked his head to the side as he examined Kages face. It was completely covering in chalk white powder except around his eyes and his lips, which were painted black. He was also wearing so much eye liner that it was almost comical. He was dressed in the nicest clothes he owned, which was to say the only ones that weren’t stained with blood, and he had his magical vihuela, Monster Mash II, slung over his back. Taking this all in the imp was clearly unimpressed and simply shrugged and responded.
“Sure, I guess.”
“Whatever!” Kage spat as he walked over to the summoning circle he had made out of Githyanki blood on the very expensive rug, in his very expensive room of the inn him and the Men were staying at. " It’s not like you know anything about fashion or looking cool, you bespectacled little dork." Kage knelt down and touched the summoning circle as Dio rolled his eyes so hard it may had giving him a headache, had he not already had one, brought about by always being with Kage. With a word of power Kage activated the circle and suddenly, cloaked in an aura of brimstone and mailice, before him stood the mighty Baron Glasrael. Kage beamed up at the imposing figure as the devil looked back, more than slightly confused.
“Ahem….." Glasrael began. " Kage, what ummm……what happened to your face?"
“I know boss, It’s awesome right? It’s a new makeup thing that I’m gonna drop on high society! I call it “Corpse Paint”! It’s gonna blow people’s minds!"
“Riiiiiiiight.” Glasrael returned. “That’s very nice Kage, was that all you called me for? I have a meeting with Lord Calbren soon and I don’t want to make him wait."
“Lord Calbren?" Kage asked “Isn’t he kind of big time? What’s he want?"
“Actually, he wishes to speak with me about you. I expect it will go………..poorly, but that’s beside the point. What was it that you wanted?”
“Oh, right,” Kage’s attention snapped back to the task at hand.” So, we saved that Githzari fortress, right, and found out that the wife of one of the head monks was like, possessed or something and had totally got the githyanki into the place and screwed the defenses and stuff. So we totally executed her and told the Githzari that we’d keep them safe and get them to some meet up with the rest of their people. They were all like “ Oh, we don’t need your help.” but we told them “Hey, We’re Madmartigan’s Men and Ithyk, and if you don’t have us helping you, you’re probably boned.” So they agreed and we went with them to Sayre. When we got there we met by this super rich githyanki ass-hat named Telicanthus, and he invited us to a dinner party and to stay in town on his tab. Hence the awesome digs I’m staying in right now.”
“That’s all very interesting Kage.” Glasreal said while kage took a second to breath in.” Next time though, can you just write this all down and send me a letter or something?”
“ But Boss, that’s not even the interesting stuff. You see, we found this piece of glass that is part of some giant scrying orb called the Bitter Glass. “ Kage quickly produced one of the pieces to show the Baron. “ Pretty cool, huh? What it does is….”
“Thank you, Kage I know plenty about the Bitter Glass, the Githyanki had hidden it quite well, and you say that is one of the communication pieces? “
“Yeah, totally is, also, we’re pretty sure we know where the main control orb is.” Kage said with a prideful smile.”
“Come again?”
“Yeah, it’s in mansion of that prat Telicanthus. We’re going to a party there tonight. That’s why I’m all dressed up. We’re going in there and we’re gonna burn that motha’ down.”
“But you’re not going to destroy the Bitter Glass? “ Glasrael asked, hope dripping into his voice.
“Don’t know.” Kage said seeming truly perplexed. “We didn’t really make a decision on that. Now that I think about it, we usually don’t make too many decisions beforehand. I guess we’re not really planners, ya know?”
“Or thinkers” Glasrael said below his breath.
“What?” Kage asked.
“Nothing.” Responded Glasrael.” Look, just try not to destroy the Bitter Glass, it’s very useful. And after the party, should the priceless artifact remain intact could you give me the exact location and maybe a way in?”
“Ummmm, maybe. I’ll have ask the Men, not Ithyk, he wouldn’t understand the question even if I said it and grunts and humping.”
“Yes, fine, whatever.” Glasrael interrupted. “ I have to speak with Lord Calbren. I’ll speak with you later Kage.” And with that, Baron Glasrael vanished with a wet, sulfurous pop. As soon as he was gone Kage turned to Dio with a leering, I Told You So look on his face.
“Look at that Dio, the Boss thought I looked awesome!” Dio didn’t even bother to sigh, since he know the gesture was like trying to teach a pig to sing. Instead all he said was.
“Yup Boss, just like you said.”

Hail to the King

Kord, I’m bushed. I was just settling into a nice night of drinking and debauchery on someone else’s tab with Kage when Spooky Kid sent a message to us all saying that he’d followed one of the mean Gith from Telicanthus’ joint to some warehouse, where he was currently stalking him and some cronies.
I sent a message telling him to stay put and assembling the rest of the Men & Ithyk nearby, so we could bust in and bust heads together.
Oh, I forgot to tell you about my new tattoo! I got the symbol of Madmartigan’s Men & Ithky inked on my right hand and enchanted, as did the rest of the Men (well, branded, in Ithyk’s case and enscribed in Vern’s). Now we can communicate with the rest of the men magically, and can also know each other’s location and if we’re OK.
I’d never tell them this, but I worry about the Men when they’re off doing they’re thing, especially the kid. Bahamut forbid he get into some serious shit, not that he can’t handle himself, I know he can, but I feel responsible for them. I don’t want to sound like a fop or anything, just, I’ve imposed myself as their leader, so I better do a damn good job about it.
We busted into the warehouse, being careful to avoid the goop cube that the kid warned us about. Tzolek & Ithyk busted right through the floor into the basement, where everyone was waiting to take us out, I guess. I leapt in after them, same a tricky looking fucker perched up on a beam, sliced him open and knocked him on his ass. Then the kid used some spooky-fu and threw him half across the room, right under Tzolek’s descending ax, which promptly decapitated the prick. The rest, even the cube, were a mop job after that.
The kid led us through some secret passage to a real winner by the name of the Filth King. WHen I say we kick-circled him to a bloody pulp, I’m spareing you the details because I know you can be sensitive, baby. His “subjects” fought valiantly but were clearly outmatched, and one finally broke rank and ran, but Kage slipped his pick between the cowards shoulder blades and he went down.
Kage opened a portal through hell to cross the pit to the King’s treasure pile, but the fucking thing came to life as a three-headed dragon. It was the toughest fight we’ve had in a long time, mostly because it whispered words of greed to us and turned us against one another. It told me to strike the most powerful one of us, so of course I stabbed myself and of course I hit, that’s how good I am.
We busted the treasure monster into pieces (gold pieces) and made with the looting.
The kid spotted another secret door, so he spooked on down, found a room with a bunch of deadies and sent word for us. As soon as I walked in the room the deadies all stood up, but it wasn’t long before we put them all back down.
The room was covered in crazy writing, turns out it was an old Iounian temple and the scribes all got trapped by some Gith-triggered flood, so they decided to write everything in every language. A bit of it was even addressed to Vern, which gave me the willies.
On the way back we found that the Filth King was gone. Good thing I already absconded his crown. It fits nice, too. I think I’m going to wear it tomorrow.
I am going to a fancy party, after all.

Madmartigan's Journal, Book Two, Page 7
Epicer & epicer
Whoa, I just had another crazy dream. That same broad I saw on the hill last time, but this time she was at the bottom of the hill with me. She smiled this weird green smile and told me I could have anything I desired, but I woke up before I could tell her to bob my knob. It’s not every day you can get head from a chick with green teeth. Well, I guess it depends where you pick up your ladies, but hers weren’t dirty green, they were magical green.

Just when I think my life can’t get more epic, I fight a squad of troops on an two airships stuck together from the back of my unicorn. Wait, that’s not the epic part. I know, it’s amazing…
Then I ride my fucking unicorn to the ground, galloping through the Feywild to land safely on the ground as the ships crash into an obliterate an army of bad guys. Fuck Vecna in the eye socket, what a day.
Oh, after all that we helped the rest of the quiet-type Gith find a saboteur in their ranks. Turns out it’s Tokk’it’s wife. Bummer, poor guy. Odos, the head quiet Gith, asked us to escort him and the rest of these ungrateful fuckers to Sayre, so of course we did.
Lord Telicanthus, the head honcho of Sayre and one of the dickhead Gith (well, they’re all dickheads, but you know what I mean) rolled out a welcome wagon for us, all veiled threats and guards who think they’re tougher than us.
I can’t wait to prove them wrong.
I rode around Sayre on the back of Kickass, drawing looks from the ladies. We went to some slum where all the quiet Gith were holed up and ran into the sword broad again. She told us some foreboding shit, I wasn’t really listening though, I was looking at her jugs. I think they got bigger.
Now I’m just about to lay down after a nice hot bath. Telicanthus put the Men & Ithyk up in some fancy digs, so we’re going to run his tab through the roof before we party like there’s no tomorrow at his abode tonight. I’m going to get drunk, fight and fuck, hopefully in that order. Telicanthus will regret the day he invited Madmartigan’s Men & Ithyk to a party!

Second Dream

You are lying in a glade. The forest is thick around you and the setting sun shines bright golden light throughout. You feel dizzy, and vaguely remember that a few moments ago you were running up that hill after that beautiful woman. As you reflect on this, you realize you are not alone. There’s movement beyond the glade. You stand quickly, but realize your weapons are not with you. From the corner of your eye you see her step out from behind a tree. The woman from the hill is now in the glade, this time clothed in deep green gown. She is adorned with rubies and her hair is jet black. You turn to face her and she smiles, revealing lime green teeth. “Few can resist their greatest desires, tell me what it is and you’ll have it”. Before the image of your utmost desire forms in your mind, you wake up.

The First Dream

You are walking through a large field. There is a large hill off in the distance and you feel compelled to reach its summit. As you start to approach the incline, you notice you are not alone. There is a beautiful human woman at the base of the hill. She’s wearing a white gown and is adorned with gold jewelry. She notices your approach, smirks seductively and disappears. You look around and notice her now standing at the summit of the hill. You race up the hill as fast as you can, reaching the crest out of breath. The woman is there, looking out at the land. You move to stand next to her, becoming aware that the hill is much taller than you thought and you can see to the horizon. “All of this can be yours,” the woman says, then adds with a smoldering look “anything you want can be yours”.
You wake up.

The Way of the Bat: Justice Tempered in Darkness – Chapter 4, Part: 2 (EXCERPTS)

With the dragon and its rider defeated, we continued our advance towards the monastery. We watched as dozens of githyanki boarded another flying ship, which then took off and began approaching us. Tokk’it did his best to outmaneuver the other ship, but it was of no use. The other ship rammed our boat’s port side and impaled it. We wasted no time and began attacked the githyanki before they could launch a proper attack. We took down their captain and several members of the crew, but more kept coming up from below. We decided to crash the two ships into the invading githyanki forces.

Tokk’it tilted the ships, sending githyanki flying as we clung to the rigging. At the last second I grabbed Kage and flew us to a safe distance from the explosions. The others all made it to the ground safely as well, thankfully.

The explosions decimated the githyanki. What few remained were quickly eliminated by either the githzerai or one of us. Following the battle we helped the githzerai secure their monastery and search for clues. There was this strange piece of glass the captain of the other ship had on him. Kage was able to figure out that it was some kind of scrying crystal, likely part of some kind of network of crystals that allowed all the githyanki to communicate with each other.

The leader of the githzerai monks, Odos, explained to us that there had been several attacks across our plane, far from the Vale. It seemed that their monastery was the only one able to withstand an assault by the githyanki. All the other locations that had been attacked had fallen. Odos also told us that when the githyanki attacked, assassins from within the monastery also attacked. We were suspicious that the assassins could still be somewhere in the compound, so we began searching the entire place.

We discovered that there must have been two who attacked from the inside. One escaped through a secret escape tunnel through the mountain. The other one was Gillia, Tokk’it’s lover. We found another piece of scrying glass in her room.

When we confronted Gillia, along with the rest of the surviving monks, Gillia revealed that she was dominated by the githyanki. We beat her into unconsciousness, but Odos advised us that once a mind was broken by the gith, it could never be salvaged. Gillia was executed.

With the other assassin still out there, the monks decided they wanted to head to the city of Sayre, hoping that it would be safer. We agreed to escort them there.

I remember hearing of Sayre at the Temple of the Enduring Mountain. Many of the merchants that came to trade with the monks spoke of the wealthy city of Sayre and how they found the city to be one of the most enchanting places they had ever seen.

We had only just arrived in the city when we came upon a githyanki noble. His name is Lord Telicanthus. We were obviously shocked to see a githyanki not only out in the open, but apparently a well-respected and influential member of the community. Telicanthus claimed that he fled his kin to avoid their warmongering. We were not convinced. He was obviously treating the githzerai coldly. Before leaving, he invited us to a dinner party at his home tomorrow night.

We’ve found that everyone in the city seems to treat the githzerai with no respect. There’s a group of refugees living in an old warehouse on the edge of the city. While at the githzerai’s warehouse, we found our old friend Amyria! She’s been having visions of a shadow stretching across our world, originating in the city of Sayre. She apparently has gathered several important people to meet in the city tomorrow morning. She wants us to join her.

I need to prepare. This dinner party will hopefully allow me an opportunity to search Telanthicus’ home for any clues about his role in the githyanki attacks. Tonight I hope to familiarize myself with this city. I need to see what I can learn about this place. This plot seems to keep getting bigger with each passing minute.

3rd Message to Baron Glasrael

Kage glanced around really quick to make sure none of the Men (or Ithyk) had followed him below deck, and Dio was quick on his heels. Faster than one would expect Kage drew the emblem of Baron Glasrael onto the floor in the dragon blood he had scooped off the deck not moments before. Before he could put his fingers to the mark to imbue them with power the book imp flew right in-front of him, at eye level, looking both panicked and cross and smashed Kage in the bridge of the nose with his iron bound book.
“Gah…..” Kage stifled the yell by shoving his hand in his mouth as he fell backwards onto his ass. “What in the 9 hells was that for!” he asked the imp in hushed exasperation.
" You are not, " Dio began, " Going to summon the Baron below the deck of a Spell-Jammer that can barely stay aloft, while your friends are upstairs and more Githyankie could attack at any moment." The imp had lowered to the floor and was standing, arms crossed, chin raised defiantly at Kage, standing right on top of the emblem.
“That’s a good point.” Kage calmly agreed, which was something that had never happened before, and it left Dio completely unprepared for what happened next Kage suddenly flicked the remainder of the dragon blood at the imps face and smiled. " I’ll just use you as a conduit."
A surge of infernal energy lanced through the book imp, who suddenly belched out a gout of brimstone laden smoke. The imp looked around very confused for a moment and his eye’s widened in horror as he look up at Kage and spoke in Baron Glasrael’s voice.
" Dear lord Asmodeus, it’s happened. He’s unlocked some secret potential. These truely are the end of days."
“What are ya talking about Boss?” Kage ask, very confused.
" What do you mean?!" Glasrael ask dumbfounded. " You’ve become colossal!"
“Huh?” Kage started. " Oh, no, I’m just using Dio as a conduit, so you’re talking through his body." The imps shoulders slumped in relief.
“Blackened pits of Hell, thank you.” Glasrael said as he stifled a shudder." Well, now that we’re past that, why is it you summoned me, and after that fright, this better be something good."
“Oh, it is Boss!” Kage began very excited. " We’re on a stolen Githyankie Spell-Jammer. I guess that attack on Overlook was part of something way bigger. The guy that stole this thing said that there’s some kind of global inter-planar war starting and the Githyankie are the one’s at the reigns. I guess they’re attacking everywhere. Isn’t that pretty important info?" A look of worry crossed the imps face.
" Yes," the Baron began," It is. I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with the Empress."
" What Empress?" Kage asked.
“Hmmmm?” Glasrael look at him again. “Oh, nothing. Don’t worry about it Kage. Look, I need you to keep me updated on what’s going on with this. I’m going to need you tell me everything about wha…..”
“Kage!” Madmartigan yelled from above deck. " What the hell are you doing down there!?"
“Nothing!” Kage shouted back." I’m……uhhhh, taking a piss." The book imp shook his head and rolled his eyes.
“Why are you pissing below deck!?” Madmartigan yelled " Come up here, piss over the railing. It’s liberating!"
" Ya! I’ll be right there!" Kage replied. and looked back at the Imp." I gotta go Boss, I’ll update you when I get a moment, alright." and with that Kage lept up and ran up the stairs, leaving the imp behind.
“But Kage!” Glasrael shouted." You need too……..dammit! Scorched plains of Averius, I never thought I be mad to see that idiot leave!" Suddenly the imps posture changed from frustrated to slumped and confused. With Glasrael’s power having vacated the imp’s form, the book imp glanced around.
“Hello?” Dio said perplex. " What’s going on? Hello?………."

The Way of the Bat: Justice Tempered in Darkness – Chapter 4, Part: 1 (EXCERPTS)

Overlook was enjoying a peaceful morning for once. And I was out during the daylight, an infrequent occurrence as of late, when a large ship began flying towards the city. It was spectacular, and surreal. I recalled some books in the monastery’s library I had read that described the flying ships of the Astral Sea. This ship had seen combat, and its approach was erratic, but it touched down just outside the city walls in a controlled landing.

The ship was being flown by a gith, but not one of the githyanki. The pilot was a githzerai and was coming to us for help. The githzerai apparently had a monastery hidden in the mountains that was under attack. He was looking to us for aid and needed us to leave with him immediately.

As we approached the mountains, dragons intercepted us. The dragons were being ridden by githyanki soldiers. I wasted no time in bringing one of the dragons and its rider to us on the deck. I knew that we needed to control the battle as best we could given the unusual circumstances. The others quickly joined the fray. Madmartigan threw himself at the other dragon and was able to send the rider falling to the ground. Madmartigan, unfortunately, followed the rider after the dragon tossed him down, too. Ithyk “walked” on the air, much to the surprise of all of us, and took on the dragon in flight while I took care of the fallen rider.

In the end, while it certainly wasn’t the most graceful of our fights, we took out both dragons and their riders without suffering too much injury on our end.

When we got close to the monastery, the dragon and its rider that approached us didn’t stand much of a chance. With just one dragon to focus on, I again knocked it down onto the deck so the others could all fight it. The tactic worked beautifully.

The fighting at the monastery is severe, and we’re preparing to join the battle. These githyanki must be shown that they will never be able to lay claim to our plane so long as Madmartigan’s Men (and Ithyk) defend it.

Madmartigan's Journal, Book Two, Pages 4-6
I have a unicorn!

Hey sweet thang.
Want to hear some crazy shit? We beat the Kord out of a band of giants and cyclops’, then subverted the survivors to our puroses.
No, that’s not the crazy shit. The crazy shit is when we got home there was a fuckin’ unicorn waiting there, just looking at me. He (definitely he) pawed the ground when I approached, but didn’t run. Soon as I touched him I knew he was mine, a gift from Eachthighern. I also knew his name was “Oachlechyr”, but fuck if I’m yelling that every time I need my noble unicorn steed, so I dubbed him “Kick Ass”.
I had some gold burning a hole in my belt pouch so I rode out on Kick Ass to purchase some new swag and everyone was all “Look at Madmartigan! He’s so damn sexy atop his noble unicorn steed.” I’m pretty sure he can find virgins, too, I just need to figure out how to command him to do so. Still bagged a couple broads though.
Couple days later this big mother of a ship flies into town. Yes, flies. No, I wasn’t drunk. This freaky looking dude climbs out, says he’s a Githzerai and he needs help because the Githyanki are attacking and will bombard Overlook if we don’t stop them. So of course the Men & I and Ithyk walked (I rode) up the ramp and onto the ship. One of the more majestic things I’ve ever done, riding the forecastle of an airship atop my noble unicorn steed.
Not much later the Kid points out a couple dragons riding at us. No bigs, we’ve dealt with a couple dragons before. They were being ridden by Gith. That shit was epic. I leapt atop the back of one of the dragons and knocked it’s rider off before it grabbed me and dropped me to the ground, where I rolled with the impact (really glad I’ve been studying the Kid’s techniques) and then started firing arrows into the dragon’s belly. Stoney jumped onto it and started beating on it while the Kid used some fancy grapplehook and launched himself back up onto the ship.
Eventually we took them all out and sailed on. On the horizon we saw a ship like ours, but loading up with troops. Another dragon gith combo flew up to us and got murdered toot sweet, now we’re making for the big ship. Kage is going to write one bad ass song about this…
