Luckily Galtar sprang to my aid, as I had taken a lot of hits from the
Greyskins. It also helped that Soniah did her "turn into a flaming ball
of death" routine, thereby routing a lot of the minions. Combined with
Tharen's attacks from the dark, that left us with a few of the leaders.
As I only learned after the fight, Vaal had killed one of the leaders on
his own just by shooting arrow after arrow. Very nice! The other was dispatched
of by Boulder. I was not entirely sure that he only dropped down after taking
the very large beating that I saw on his body, but I decided that I would
rather skip that detail.
As for myself during the battle, I managed to get the prisoners out of
the thick of it. Then I focused on keeping them calm and in a sane state of
That was all there was to it, really. We were not entirely sure that
no Greyskin had escaped, but to go back and pursue them was not an option.
So we executed the final part Boulder's plan, and set fire to the support
beams just before we left. That would surely slow down any pursuers enough
for us to get out.
In the meantime, Tharen was already busy freeing as many of the prisoners
as he could manage. With the help of Galtar, we could set out as quickly
as possible. Fimbur led the way. For all of his confidence yesterday though,
he was not entirely sure all the time. We had to walk the rest of the day.

It took us the better part of the next day to reach the exit as well, but
find it we did, with many thanks to Fimbur.
While we walked, Boulder and Soniah were "interrogating" (for lack of
a better word) the prisoners. They were really desperate to find the
supposed warlocks. They talked to an elf named Thaithir, which they "suspected".
To me, it looked like one smaller group of the prisoners kept together,
a bit separated from the rest. That group included the prisoners
that both Boulder and Soniah initially suspected. However after their
talks, while the group did not tell them everything, it appeared that
there were no warlocks to be found after all. This disappointed both
of them, but I was secretly glad inside that we freed all of the
prisoners anyway. The more people free, the better!
When we finally arrived outside I was glad to see daylight once again.
Boulder delivered a nice speech which I was glad to see heartened the spirits.
We had a few days journey ahead of us and we were all hungry. I was hoping
that most of the freed prisoners would join our resistance!
