The Ambush

Crouched low behind the walls of the tower, Iroel was nervous.

He had put Avaris‘ life at great peril.  It was he who suggested Avaris act as bait. The plan was to lure the hobgoblins across the bridge while he the others cut off their escape from behind.

The hobgoblin sergeant barked the order in goblin, but Iroel understood it perfectly. The sergeant was ordering two of his hobgoblin soldiers to grab Avaris, who was perfectly disguised as an unarmed wizard. They were taking the bait!

Iroel could see Jorr on the other tower, silent and motionless as the rocks he was pressed against.

“Now!” cried out Iroel as the soldiers moved in to grab Avaris.

Upon hearing the signal, Valthurne immediately burst through the tents in which he was hiding. The sharp edge of his blade Merthuvial sliced though the tent as if it were parchment. Within seconds he was standing below the hobgoblin sergeant who had a startled look on his face.

The hobgoblin sergeant was startled. Then, a movement in the upper towers caught his eye. Two archers,  had taken position on the north towers and started firing at his men. His gaze darted across the bridge. The man he sent his soldiers after was not a “helpless wizard” at all but a fighting monk, who was now assisted by a well armored woman.

Much too late to re-call his men, he realized what he had walked into….

Akbar It’s a trap!

No, try again

Hobgoblin Sergeant It’s a trap!

Thank you.
