With a brief rest Myers wakes up jalos and warns him of a oncoming patrol. Unfortunately for Myers one had spotted him in his scouting position. Though The fight didnt seem like to much of a troubling one. After a few moments during battle a bolt of fire breaks out from behind the group striking one of the goblins and setting him ablaze.
Enter a gnome bard named Nila and a fire genoshi Defet.
With the goblins defeated the group look around for their friend/brother Myers. He vanished from sight and no where to be seen. Kurgan decide to go searching for him, unfortunately in the wrong direction.
Now Jalos, Nila and Dafet are all thats left of the once large party to find Fidus. Determined they set off into the woods tracking what they could. They catch onto Kurgans tracks and run into a clearing where there was obviously a fight taking place. Nila with her keen senses picks the right direction to follow and takes charge leading the 3 into a clearing and a cabin of an old lady and her dreaded Pomeranian pup. Giving the group a warning she locks herself into her cabin telling NIla and Jalos to go away. Meanwhile Dafet sneaks around the house and peaking inside.
Luckily Jalos had keen senses and noticed 2 figures in the woods and calls them out. From the trees a giant wolf man stands above the 2 very squishy people. Using his faith and determination of Apollo Jalos manages to hold off the werewolf until Dafet sets him on fire scaring him away. This led for an opportunity for the second werewolf to jump and and take over where the last was.
Dafet and Jalos were ready for him, catching him on fire and burning him with holy righteousness and furious anger. Jalos puts his hand under the jaw of the werewolf and calls apon Apollo one more time bringing holy flame down through his skull and slaying the beast.
With the threat gone the team break into the cabin and hear screaming down below. Not one for patience (or checking for traps/magic) Jalos opens the trap door letting off a arcane explosion. If this was his only folly on this trip it would be enough but he did not know of the terrifying task awaiting him below.
Nila sneaks in, invisible to the eye and scouts the lower area of the cabin. She sees a man tied up being threatened by the old woman and an unconscious person in a cage. She informs the group and they charge down. The old woman sees them and transforms into a large grey werewolf. Jalos not one to run from a fight directs his attention to the fearful and mighty Pomeranian pup while the other two take on the feeble old lycanthrope. Some quick thinking and lucky lock picking Nila manages to free the man who runs over and grabs his hammer calling onto the White wolf and strikes some mighty blows.
Jalos fearing for his friends life focus’ on the terrifying creature known only to him as “Hey theres a cute dog”. Swing after swing this fearsome foe dodges attacks with the quickness of a demon spawn. Finally he lands a critical hit upon the beast and it shrugs if off as if its fur were made of pure steel.
Meanwhile Dafet and Fidus are bringing down the fire upon the mother werewolf eventually scaring her off. even Nila the tiny gnome managed to get a few cuts in. As the grey wolf runs Nila notices the true threat in the room, the tiny Pomeranian, and goes in for a nasty “poke” with her sword felling the terrible beast with a single blow.
Fidus runs up after the Grey wolf and quickly runs back informing the group that another has joined. Dafet gives a worrying glance at his companions. Fidus says “do what you must” he nods and casts the cavern ablaze burning all in its path, the werewolf and Fidus.
Jalos tired yet not beaten runs up to face the wolf head on beside Dafet. The wolf more afraid of his mother than he is of the 2 strangers strikes out and knocks out Dafet though briefly. Quick thinking and quick heals Jalos brings Dafet back to his feet while FIdus crushes the Mother wolfs skull under his hammer;.
The companions try to interrogate the remaining werewolf who has now reverted back to his human form. They gather a bit of information though was cut short by Fidus’ hammer coming down on the man.
Searching the room and finding a asleep Kurgan the group rest for the night and heal their wounds
