Order of the Spear

Life in the Big City

Guiding the party up further into the mountains, Ox introduced the companions to a few new herbs and a sacred grove of trees where Wylde’s protective power had been evoked.
Further down the road a red dragon was discovered and attacked and slain. Baby red dragonAfter the brief fight, it was learned that the beast had been wounded by the very dragon it had been feasting when the party had arrived.
Saying goodbye to Ox, the fearless adventurers sauntered down the slope to enter the ruins of the town, beyond which lay the ruins of an open air temple long ago fallen to the ravages of time. Although many years had passed since the town was last occupied by civilized people, it was obvious that the mounds of rubble and boarded up windows and walled doorways were the sign of a last stand. A narrow pathway led through the city streets where small dragons came from a thick fog cloud forcing the party onward. It soon became apparent that the ruins of the town were meant to funnel attackers into kill pockets and obstacles. Linfors succumbed to the constant barrage of mental attacks from the sentient sword sheathed on Cohen’s hip. He successfully grasped the hilt and had intended to brandish the weapon menacingly, but Cohen had wisely wired the sword into its scabbard. Denied a glorified death Linfors stumbled along behind the cleric.
The team stumbled through the first few until they fell into a rhythm. Denn and Tannis picked up on the advantages, due to a roguish nature. While Tannis ran on ahead abandoning his comrades, Denn helped the slower teammates over the barriers. Osweald made the best of the situation while Cohen howled and cried about how it was too difficult for him. At every step he complained that he should be afforded special privileges because of his belief in the gods. Brat
Nearing the end of the fortified town, the squad rounded the last of the rubble to reach the lake. Cohen, in his hysterics, gave up and took it upon himself to magically cross impassable terrain and to establish his own difficulties and movement rate. From here, despite all his difficulties from his chosen armor, he decided he would leap into the lake and attempt to swim in his armor. Sinking
The hour was late and with emotions high, it was decided that we would leave this cliffhanger in the suspense of the moment, unsure whether or not our intrepid “heroes” will again walk the face of Aynemere.

What happened to Linfors? I heard that guy fell off the wagon and went for the sword again. That’s what I heard, at least.

Linfors can get the sword now, as cohen sunk like a stone thinking metal armor should float like it provides air conditioning in the dessert, he withdrew the sword and fell on it.
The Gods work in mysterious ways, and he is going to give Allyxann a piece of his mind.

The edit that includes Linfors’ actions makes sense. Linfors concurs.
