When the company moved to the town of Mindus, a central hub for a row of forts along the mountains, the party finally took a rest. The small enough town was big enough to peak our always curious angel’s quest to find something more bad ass, dragging along Gunner.
Of course, after going back to the tent, Myr Myr found something and wanted to show the shrub.
A little girl met them on the edge of town, asking them to help find her missing dog, Luna. Being ‘heroes’ and all, “I guess we could” (so long as she gives us something at the end). So off to the forest they go.
Wolves were no problem along the way, but something got sticky on the inside of the forest. I mean really sticky.. Like a web.
The dwarf, The angel, and The construct all hung there with the look of “oh shit” on their face (except for Myr Myr). Luckily getting out okay was easy. But what’s that they hear? A scuttle of leaves? Multiple scuttles?
In came two little spiders.. Or.. Maybe not so little, to come and eat their fill. Tsk, it was easy peasy for our hero— OW! The little bitch’s bite hurt! Excuse the three as they killed them, a bit of their ankles missing.
Finally, what a vermin. Thank God it was over.. Or was it? dun dun DUUUUN!
With a (not so quick) turn around, and a non needed spot check, stood a large spider with fangs showing.
With quite a bit of fighting and running around, and trying to get Myr Myr out of the web again, the monster was killed.
Welp.. No going back
Onward they went into the forest they went, finding the dog under a log, needing to be quiet so non noticing spiders stay as such.
Of course.. Armor isn’t the quietest not is it?
Our heroes ran as fast as they could while spiders rained down from on high as though Moses had a new plague.
Ran they did, all the way to the goverors house, where a little girl was reunited with her dog.
And our adventurers, awarded with 400 gold and one.. Shovel.
