Some dragon that was!
After we killed the last of the kobolds outside, we regrouped inside some
denser part of the forest a little while away. There was a lot of discussion
about what we should do, so I decided to take a little nap, because I was
getting tired. I was just starting to doze off as I heard some noise.
Apparently the rest of the group had taken up station closer to the waterfall
and Equilibria was blasting a kobold! Not wanting to miss all the fun, I
quickly got up and headed for the waterfall mouth, but when I got there the
kobold was gone again. Ofcourse, I couldn't let that happen again, so I took up
position next to the cave mouth so I would get a good stab at the first kobold
which came out of the cave. "We are going to get them now, guys!", I said to
the rest encouragingly, but did not really hear an answer. "Guys?" Everybody
except Gründahl seemed to be walking away a huge distance! After a little
while it came clear they wanted to get to the other side of the stream, because
this side was all sticky and bloody from the previous kobolds. Perfectly
understandable, so Gründahl and I quickly walked through the stream and
set up near the cave mouth at the other side.
Well, I got my wish! I got to stab the first kobold coming out of the cave!
Unfortunately he had brought his thirteen friends as well and Gründahl and
I were quickly surrounded! Gründahl valiantly defended me and I stabbed
kobolds left and right. Luckily the others quickly came to our rescue. The
fight did not go well. Gründahl succumbed to a mass of kobolds and
although Ziruna healed him, he quickly got overwhelmed again. If that was not
bad enough, after a while a great big fat goblin and a retinue of kobolds
joined the fight as well. That goblin is probably "Irontooth"! How
disappointing! The fight was going really badly for us, with Eowan falling and
even Tyrr getting hurt, but then, luckily Ziruna breathed ice on a lot of
kobolds and the odds changed in our favor! Tyrr did an amazing job and
Equilibria kept washing the kobold magic user by pushing him into the waterfall
with magic. That was loads of fun! I skewered some kobolds on the way to save
Eowan's life and using all my healing skills I managed to get Eowan on his feet
again! I can't say that I would know how to do that again, though! After this I
turned my attention to the goblin and I managed to slip my dagger between his
ribs and finish him off! He screamed something about the Mistress of the Night
and someone else who I don't know.
It was a real tough fight, but with good teamwork we managed to defeat them
all. Gründahl, Ziruna and Eowan really knew how to keep the kobolds off us
and the rest of us managed to get the kobolds down to the ground. We are really
an amazing team! And, Ziruna's ice breath is amazing of course! And, I saved
Love, your sister Lilsy, saver of lives!
