As we joined the war effort in the South, we determined that the most important thing was to find out why they were building a road through the desert. At the same time, we couldn’t in good conscious allow the enemy forces to continue to operate without our intervention in defending our home. Anduin decided we should make our way toward the unusual road, attacking garrisons and liberating towns along the way.
His goal was not so much to win the war with these attacks, but to make known to the enemy where we were going so they would be forced to divert forces against us. Our first town we approached by night, Anduin using a mighty spell to demolish their supplies and an entire battalion! A dragon and two knights survived, but I was able to soon subdue the dragon while the others protected me from the knights. I thought we should kill it, but Juniper was adamant that we spare it and hope to free it from Tiamat’s mind control.
Our plan to leave a path of raids for the enemy to follow had to be abandoned to return our prisoner to Aveliobris, so we abandoned the effort, going straight to the road to see what purpose it served. As we flew over it, we spotted a caravan heading back into House Grey controlled lands out of the desert. Wanting to know what they carried, we descended, Anduin using magic to convince them he was sent to help them move the carts more quickly through teleportation to a different town.
They were convinced, but insisted on accompanying the wagons. The rest of us left Anduin to go with the first set of wagons, where we tried to quickly kill the escort before Anduin could send the next batch through.
These journal entries are going to be in-character play reports from ByW’s campaign, which we are going to alternate playing with the Tyranny of Mundanity campaign and the coming Primordial Frontier campaign. My character, Raglan “the Light”, admires RiH’s character, Anduin Damian and follows him believing his place in history will be as a companion of the royal adventurer. He is impressed with their elven companion, Juniper (played by BiW), but does not know her well.
