Legion XXVIII split in two. The smaller force, led by Vash Steen, is heading to Copperton. Nelia is taking the rest of her legion to Bootheel Pass.
1,500 soldiers, 2 storm sorcerers, 10 tempest priests, 20 blue dragonborn berserkers. 120 or so slaves, including PC half orc and tiefling slaves are under Steen’s command.
Lados’ father Aklaine Kaumakas gave him a gorgeous .44 six-shooter, way ahead of its time, with pearl inlay handle and 300 rounds. I’m sure he intends one day to find that weapon, seized from him when he was enslaved by Xoll.
Charek grows ever more impatient hoping his mother gets word of his plight, assuming her family connections might get him out of the frying pan.
Celestra, Selendorr, the Jaqmoori, and basically the global order of the druids have declared war on Xoll. Elves the world over hate Xoll at this point.
Three Age of Magic airspheres drop 300 wood elves (one a PC, Tabaxi) and a litany of overpowered individuals (mostly druids) while Steen’s forces are camping at night.
Session start: 2 A.M. 03/15/905. Group luck save: 3 (before mods). On the board: A large tent (inside, Dryn and Lace). Dryn’s covered wagon. Dryn’s covered slave wagon (containing PC and the two others, Vellus and Tronus). A campfire circled by 5 soldiers, all human. A blue dragonborn with a great axe patrols close. Vash Steen’s part of the long encamped column is just to the south of Dryn’s. Dryn’s 2 donkeys are tethered nearby.
Dryn’s campsite was the point of the column. The night is overcast, windy, cold (about 40 degrees with a nasty wind chill).
Luna is full on the 22nd.
Mac controls Tronus, Chris controls Lace, Otaku controls Vellus, Allison controls Connor.
Meanwhile, to the north, past the Xoll sentries and the wood elves silently getting in place for ambush, Allison’s bard is out on an all-night tear of wining and flirting with Connor. Half drunk, the two are having a very dangerous horse race down the trail they are both intimately familiar with, when they ride smack into 5 blue dragonborn wearing the imperial purple dragon tunic of Xoll’s legions.
