Part 1 and 2 here:
Our heroes have discovered an apiary full of wild honey, quickly used for a wolf meat feast. They must now cross the Long Rocher mountain foothills. A flock of bird suddenly fly as the sound of a distant battle ring in the air.
Calciumo, the great wizard of the Glendorf jarl, is on a trail to reach an ancient and forgotten statue of Mefitica, the Stinking goddess. A convoy and two units of brave Empire’s soldiers are with him, to help and protect.
Overall view of the foothills
A slow advance for the convoy, in a narrow pass. Could it be dwarves on the heights?
Mefitica statue is in Calciumo’s sight. Only a few yard for the wizard to begin his research
Zu-rich dwarves planned an ambush and throw trunk to the Empire’s soldiers. The convoy is halted
Strange words are yelled in a guttural and incomprehensible language
The fierce inhabitant of the mountain throw more trunks
Prouds Empire’s soldiers are disorganized and succumb to the dwarves onslaught
But the soldiers are brave and climb the hill, only to be pushed back. Is dying from a fall better than by a double handed axe?
Soldiers are like thin trees under the dwarf’s blades
A sniper has spotted Calciumo and take a crossbow shot, but the heavy shield of the soldiers protect them
Distracted by the sniper, they don’t notice a dwarf unit in ambush
On the convoy side, only one soldier remain. A inglorious escape for the Empire’s elite soldier.
A harsh and deadly melee begin, soldiers ready to die to protect Calciumo
The convoy is now the legal property of the dwarfs…
…quietly returning to their homes
Calciumo’s guards dies but don’t surrender
Calciumo must postpone his research and flee
And our heroes? While Calciumo’s expedition is exterminated, they found the dwarf’s camp. A good occasion to replenish their bags with fresh food and sharpen their weapons.
