Shadows over Aethon

Jumping fences...

So we made our way back to town and we noticed a bunch of zombies attacking the guards to the entrance of the town…we made short work of them and were told that the area at the moment was under lock down. We were given a choice to go to the cemetery and deal with a looming threat. We were also told that a bunch of goblins were coming from the woods and causing havoc around the exterior of the town and that the soldiers needed help on that front.

We chose to go to the cemetery first because it seemed to be the more natural choice at the time. I honestly wasn’t paying attention because Utmno was bothering me about his cool new shield ability that he learned. I pretended like I cared…

We made our way to the cemetery and immediately the group split off. Lorelian, Utmno, JK Scrumpy and our latest member (which forgive me I forgot his name) went off to the bright blue circle that was up ahead while Tor and I went our own way and scouted the rest of the cemetery.

We immediately felt some vibrating pulses that came from the ground and the crackle of bones coliding. Skeletons had surfaced from the ground and attacked us. Tor and I immediately were split off from each other, I was surrounded and getting attacked from all angles. We couldn’t see our main group as they went further down into the cemetery.

I moved slowly away from my enemies and pinned myself in the corner by the fence. Being swinged at mercilessly, I decided to make a quick move and leaped over the 10 foot fence. It came naturally…

From my position, I could see Tor still confronted by his own group of skeletons, as I picked off Skeletons one by one from outside of the cemetery. I was in a prime position for attacking. It exercised my ability to shoot from a less than ideal position. Unfortunately, I could not bank any arrows off the fence…one day I will be able to bend the laws of physics and great imaginary walls so I can arbitrarily bounce arrows just for the sake of being a boss.

We noticed a familiar figure come out of one of the tombs and I knew by sounds of the wolves that came after the figure showed up, that my group was in some trouble. Like a boss, I shot down a minion with an incredibly powerful arrow (my two natural 20’s mind you…), and I slowly began working my way back to an ideal position to help the team out.

to be cont…
