After the success of the previous adventure, Doc Thornton called the six individuals together again for another vital mission. We were to deliver a load of supplies to Elizabeth Winters at a rural chapel of Aurath. The team kitted up, collected the donkey carrying the supplies, and went on their way.
A troop of soldiers were camped outside of the chapel. They flew the flag of Arktooth, the largest city in the land. Bruno Diaz approached the soldiers and engaged the highest ranking officer in small talk. He gleaned that the team were escorting Alexandria De Triso to a nearby excavation site. At that moment, Alexandra came out of the chapel and gave the officer a death-glare before returning inside. Bruno decided to not question the officer further. The team had heard of Alexandra. She was a prominent military figure. She was primarily concerned with arcane anomalies and matters of secrecy. The chapel was in the vicinity of the mines the team had cleared out the previous week.
Bruno, Jorgen and Ruck entered the chapel while the others waited outside with the donkey. Alexandra demanded to know what their business was here. Jörgen simply replied that “anyone can enter a chapel where I come from.” Alexandra reluctantly stepped aside.
A dozen priests were in the chapel. Bruno approached the closest priest and asked to see Elizabeth Winters. The priest replied that she had left for a while. Bruno insisted to know where she was. A muffled scream was heard from the back of the chapel. The priest replied “I really wish you hadn’t heard that.” He opened his robe and went for his long sword. Bruno called to the team members “I don’t think she’s IN HERE NOW!”
The team ran in, weapons drawn. Alexandra drew her sword and told everyone to stand down, backed up by her troop. The chapel went silent. Then she heard the muffled screams. That was enough to convince her something was afoot and she slew the nearest priest.
The brawl started. The priests outnumbered the team but were held at bay. Arrows and fire bolts picked off the priests one by one. The troop watched dumbfounded and only joined the melee when they saw a priest stab Alexandra in the leg. The priests were skilled fighters, but could not stop the team, especially with the assistance of the troop. Aurath would not let his chapel be overrun by evil.
