After a few months of down time the group runs into Eng the monk. She tells them that she has a job for them. she tells them that the job is to retrieve a book from the wizard Arik’s tower. She has Kon Eb make a copy of it. While making a copy of it she tells them of the dangers that awaits them on there travels. Once finish, she says that she has to get back to the temple. She is gone no more than 30 seconds when the group hears an ear piercing scream coming from outside.
Brunor Broadsword then yells “GET OUT OF THE WAY!!” as he does a bull like rush towards the door. Around 30 feet away she lays on the ground with a battle axe in her back and a hand axe in her front. Brunor Guesses which way she was attacked and takes off. His other three companions, then makes it towards the door. Lorona checks her body and the ground and figure that the attacker is headed for the gates. The three of them take off in the same direction that Brunor went.
Now Brunor who is about 300 feet away from the city wall see a shadow climbing up it. Brunor then runs full tilt with the boots of sprinting and striding on and jumps. Splat! He hit the wall at the same level as the attacker. Brunor then starts to climb ignoring the attacker.
The rest of the party loses the trail at a big intersection. Where they are spotted by a town guard. He asked them what all the big hurry. They tell him what happened to there friend. He calls for other guards and they sound an alarm. Not knowing which way to go, the group follows Brunor. They get to around 100 feet away from the wall and sees that Brunor and the attacker are near the top. Kon Eb cast Dimension Door and appears on the other side of the wall. Brunor reaches the top of the wall first and take a quick look around. The attacker rolls over the top while dropping a snake, and lands at the bottom of the other side of the wall. Kon Eb quickly cast Lightning Bolt which the attacker evades.
Brunor not noticing a snake biting him, jumps from the top of the wall onto the attacker and starts to grapple with him. On the other side Lorona and Fretnor reaches the wall. Lorona then starts climbing up the wall using the attacker rope. Fretnor waits his turn at the rope. While grappling Brunor bites the attacker on the neck and then the ear. He bites the ear completely off. Kon Eb then casts Web. Brunor and the attacker evade the spell. While evading the attacker manages to get himself turned around in Brunors grip and then proceeds to bite Brunors nose. Lorona reaches the top and looks down. Seeing that the attacker is a Banth. He immediately fires a shot and hit the attacker. Which causes more damage than normal from electrical shock. However, Brunor gets zapped also for he was holding onto the Banth at that time.
Looking up and seeing that Lorona is at the top of the wall he yells out “Watch out for snakes.” At which point Fretnor who was nearing the top says “Snakes.” in a frightful tone as he loses his grip falls back down. Kon Eb then cast Magic Missle which actually hits the attacker. While thinking “Dodge this.” Barely conscious now he receives a headbutt from Brunor. which knocks him out.He is relived of most of his items before the guards gets there. They then accompany the guards and tell them what has happened. Fretnor cast Speak With Dead to see if Eng wants to be brought back to life. A suggestion made by Kon Eb.When brought back She tells the guards what happened to her. The group found that he did not have the map on him that he stole from her. She says that the Temple would more than likely not mind, if she waited one more day before returning.
