Journey of the Kai Marathon, Day Twelve
We’re continuing Lone Wolf, book 4 – The Chasm of Doom.
I was sent in search of a missing platoon of soldiers and a missing wagon full of gold. I found the city of Ruanon in ruins, under siege by a warlord who intends to make a human sacrifice to raise an army of undead Darklords.
But the first order of business, is that the city is under attack!
It’s a blur of battle. Flaming balls from catapults and from wizards. Archers and foot soldiers. A couple of fights for me, but with an effective CS of 33 I rip through them faster than I can read the narrative. And victory is ours!
Now, to make my way 50 miles to the Maakengorge, a canyon where the Darklords were defeated a zillion years ago, and the site of the intended sacrifice. Fortunately, this is a quick and easy trip since the enemy was routed and scattered in the battle. I run into a single ragtag group of “bandits” who don’t even see me as they go by, and am in the gorge the next day.
