New Horizons

The Isle of Two Towers - 8

Prelude

After carefully maneuvering the Fartrader into the hidden cove the crew gets to work. After seeing to the dead the crew gathers any salvage from the wreck, cave, and the fort on the bluff. There are a few injuries as the crew forages for supplies, there are some large flightless birds who donít like to be trifled with.
Sailing the ship around to the north the second tower comes into view. It sits approximately half mile above the beech, near the summit. As the longboat comes ashore the forest goes silent. Through a break in the trees the tower can be seen, smoke beginning to rise from it.

Summary

The crew approached the tower aware that they had been observed since a signal fire had been lit on the roof. They didn't let this disturb them much and just approached the tower somewhat casually and definitely overconfidently.

Their overconfidence was rewarded with a hail of arrows which galvanized them into action. Timbers ran for side of the tower and attempted to scale it to get to the archers. Ranse charged for the very door which Timbers had seen as too dangerous. He was lucky enough not to be killed when the trap went off, but not by much. He soon found himself the lone enemy of several undead and some rats. He was taking quite the beating until Lanquor and the Luggage joined him. Bob and Chuck attacked the ones on the roof while Timbers continued his climb.

The battle inside the tower was fierce and Ranse was eventually overcome by the number of enemies he faced. Timbers made it to the roof and killed the remaining archers, making it safe for Bob and Chuck to join the battle inside. Timbers started down as Lanquor and the others continued to battle their way up.

It was a fierce fight for those inside the tower for the demons and the dead were unrelenting in their fury and their dedication to their post. In the end, it didn't matter -- the party was able to finally put an end to the foul beasts.

Ranse was revived from his shock and the undead creatures that remained were given their last rites.
