On October 26th, Year 5, Rovert travels alone to search along the Great Road for anything of interest.
- Rovert (TrS): Level 12 Human Necromancer
- Drej, Level 5 Psuedodragon Familiar
- Zengiff, Talking Rock
- Skeletal Elf Eater, Level 5 Skeleton
While camping by the road Wednesday, Rovert spots some bugbears creeping along the far side and attacks them, falling into their ambush but destroying them quickly. Later in the day he witnesses an encounter between a Union of Schek patrol and Schek Tarifk hunting party. While camping he witnesses several large flying creatures, including giant eagles, flying above the great road.
Thursday, he slays a couple of ogres on the road, leaving it clear for a gnomish caravan going to the orcs. While he camps, he is joined by a pair of gnomish adventurers looking for elvish remains: Ord and Luath.
Friday morning, he starts his return to Citadel. That night, he is ambushed by a high level gnomish warlock-knight on a flying broom. She wields an anti-magic dagger, undead suborning roots, and other alchemical weapons that lead Rovert to believe she was waiting for him specifically. His interrogation of her is cut short when she breaks a false tooth and breathes poison gas in his face.
Rovert returns to Citadel and levels up.
A nice, satisfying session of rolling on random encounter tables.
