Heart of Fire

Into Enemy lands...Terminus and Herald enter the game!

-after making sure that Summer’s people were taken care of and my equipment was battle ready, we head east to follow the only trail i have to find Torag’s Hammer again
-we went in the direction of the Commonwealth, run by the human lands and governed by a strange body of people known as The Administration
-Summer and Grimme traveled mostly in good conditions, and made nice amount of small talk during this time. Summer’s companion, the dragon, made no apperances
-we traveled and Grimme gave her more gear that woudl benefit her far more than it woudl benefit him
-one night, they approached a stretch of road that was well-lit by torches lining the road
-there seemed to be some men that we also blocking the road
-Grimme didnt like the look of it, and sent Summer off into the woods to stay hidden until he investigated what this business was about
-and as soon as the light was clearly on Grimme, the humans opened fire with their guns in 2 volleys
-Grimme, never really being exposed to guns in teh past, did not know what followed the thunderous explosion of gun powder. but it hurt like a bitch, so he did the only sensible thing he knew to do
-he charged straight at the crew of 20+ men
-the men, amazed that somethign on 2 legs survived the onslaught of a barrage of gunfire, were shocked and didnt know how to handle the wrecking ball of dwarven fury and metal catapulting into their ranks and laying waste to their visage and dreams of discipline and precision
-Grimme wooped some ass, and then some sergeant with a shotgun did some real damage all ‘up close and personal’ like. as a last act, the sergeant dropped a vibrating object onto the ground, and it burrowed into the earth and dissapeared. Grimme paid it no heed
-the battle lasted only a little while in a sense, but to Grimme, it was far too long, and far too many times getting shot
-on the sergeant’s body, there was a papaer being some description of him and summer, and an “X” on his picture
-Grimme did not like the look of this
-as he started to recover ever so slightly from teh battle, more soldiers appeared with more rifles, and opened fire on Grimme
-badly shot up already and bleeding, Grimme ran to the woods on the side of the road for cover (he also found a cowering soldier that had run away from his fellows in the previous fight. if there is anythign Grimme hates worse than elves, gobbos, and trees it is cowards. he dispatched the strumpet easily)
-as the line up of soldiers lined up to shoot into the woods were Grimme recovered behind the soldiers body, Grimme had to think of somethign and quick
-reaching inside his pouch, he found a silvery vial of liquid that he remembered to be a potion of invisibility and he drank it

-invisible, he stalked his prey, and moved to a more advantageous position flanking his would be attackers
-as they searched the area for his body, believing him dead, he attacked with just as much force as he previously did, felling the rest of the soldiers while taking minimal damage
-victorious, Grimme saw to some of his wounds and began to look for Summer, but he noticed somethign strange
-the ground was vibrating, and then shaking, and then violently shaking
-fearing the worse (giants or somethign terribly large and willing to kick him) Grimme tried to find the source
-the source came from 3 giant golem-like creatures that had emerged from the ground (the grenade that the sergeant let burrow in teh ground had consequences it semmed…)
-already beaten up and not looking so good, Grimme knew only one thing to do, and that was to fight, but let the enemy approach him
-they did, and they whomped on him for awhile, and it sucked
-Grimme did manage to down a couple of them, but the broken peices began to merge into a bigger, meaner looking one and then THAT one whomped on Grimme
-things did not look good for the hero now
-then, from out of nowhere, there appeared a strange creature with 2 swords tearing into the massive golem beast
-the beast went down quickly, but Grimme knew not if this new creature was friend or foe, so his guard remained up, and his weapons ready
-Summer appeared and introduced her new companion, the creature known simply as Drago
-after letting his guard down to this new companion, Grimme and Summer went off to a small cave and rested from teh battle
-the next day, they continued their traveling down the road to the human city, passing the bodies of the soldiers that Grimme killed the night before
-after awhile they came upon a traveling man who was heading to the human city with a wagon full of veridium
-they knocked him out, stole his cloths, and Grimme hid in teh back of the wagon as they entered the gates of the human city, Terminus
-also had to knock out some guards at teh city gate to make it past
-once inside the city, they maintained a low profile and stayed at a small inn
-Terminus was massive, a bustling metropolis the likes Grimme had never seen. there was a wealthy section and a slum section, and an industry section, guards patrol everywhere and
-Grimme spent a couple of days wandering the city and due to his Knowledge of the Ancients could pick up the local language in that time
-he also noticed posters of someone called “Harold” everywhere, and that everyone in the city was evil (this perturbed Grimme)
-Grimme decided to investigate teh industrial side of Terminus, and got in a bit of a scrap with some gunmen
-it was an easy enough fight, and Grimme had to flee the scene to avoid capture
-later that night he found a mysterious building that was large and isolated from the others in the industrial section, and he later learned that it supposedly held mysterious artifacts of great power
-so of course Grimme waited untill nightfall and did his best to infiltrate the building
-he fought some robots to get in, and didnt worry too much about them
-once inside, he saw several crates and 2 figures
-one of them was a massive golem, seemingly made of pure mithral with some adamantine (Grimme knew he would be a tough fight), the other figure was none other than Barthamul Cross, the figure who had escaped Grimme with his battle with Tth Amon
-the battle raged quickly and with lots of damage being traded around
-the golem did a lot of damage to Grimme, enough to where he had to be a little desperate in the fight
-Barthamul had this little prissy gun out, and was shooting Grimme and his companions with it
-Grimme knew that if the battle raged on he would die, and not complete his mission, so with all of his last strength, he charge the gun-wielding vermin and used his Radiant Charge ability to lay all possible damage into the fiend and smote him
-the golem and gunman was defeated, but upon Barthalamul’s death, Tth Kamul appeared and wisked him away. it was a strange encounter indeed
