Nearer the college as I was, I was able to see the guards there, though aware of us, not coming down to meet us. However, I perceived, the sound of dragon wings beating. I returned to the others, proposing we charge in quickly to get into the college before the dragons catch us in the open. Anduin, though, thought we should meet them in the tunnel, a confined space we already controlled.
In the time we discussed, it seemed too late to get in under them, so we met them near the tunnel, two bronze dragons of fully grown stature. We drew them nearer the tunnel with arrows and when they seemed ready to descend, I left it draw them from the others. The battle was damaging, but eventually we succeeded in cutting them down, badly wounded. Seeing the guards above seemed to have no intention of coming for us. We withdrew again to the tunnel.
There, Anduin, Basil, and I expended much of our energy in healing the group. We now consider if we have the strength to assault the college head on, or if we should withdraw into the tunnel and enter from below, or find a place to rest a little before the attack. We hesitate, for a dragon overgrown beyond any I have seen roosts on the college parapet. Safety precludes battling it in our current state, but perhaps we can get into the college under it.
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.
