Sitting at Crossroads by the fire, we where chatting a little bit, when Elorfin and Brand showed up.
They wondered if anyone wanted to come with the have a look at the fort near crater lake. Me, Lorenz,
Lomir, Nostromo and Elisa wanted to go with them. As noted in an earlier entry, I had been there
before, but Elorfin and Brand had gotten keys, so now we actually could get to see the inside too.
I asked where they had gotten the keys, and the told me Tackel gave them the keys. And now Elorfin
and Brand was thinking of makeing the Fort their new home on Thain.
Useing the keys, it was easy to get inside the Fort. Inside it is a grand place. Two big nice halls
with big tables, and lots of chairs. There where lots of rooms for people to sleep in and up on the
upper floor was two towers with rooms for the masters of the fort. Elorfin and Brand each choose one
of these two rooms as their own.
On the fort there was also a magic stone like the one in the grove near crossroads. We studyied it a
bit when suddenly someone who had been admireing the view called out about orcs aproaching. There was
talk about going down to greet them, but before anything could be done, they started fireing arrows
at us. The meele fighters ran down and out the door to meet the orcs, while the ranged fighters took
place on the fort, fireing down on the orcs.
During the fight, Moric and Torfin came from behind the orcs, and we now had them surronded. It didn't
take long to defeat them. Since this was such a small band, we came to the conclusion that this must
have been only a scouting party. So we made ready for an main force, finding good positions, and
takeing stock of everyones abilities.
We stood around, waiting for almost half a day, no orcs showing at all. Elisa, Moric and Nostromo got
tired of the waiting and desided to leave. Only a couple of minutes later, Elisa came running back
with a couple of demons on her trail. Lorenz took care of the demons, and Elisa told about
encountering them in the graveyard on her way back to crossroads.
Me, Lorenz, Torfin and Lomir, went with Elisa to investigate at the graveyard, while Elorfin and Brand
went inside the Fort to explore it some more. At the graveyard nothing special was found. The only
excitment was when Elisa suddenly turned into a big red dragon! Whoa, what a shock it gave me. She
apologized for not warning us, but even with a warning I don't think I would been prepared for her
suddenly becoming that big and scary-looking.
Finding nothing, we desided to return to T&T.
