Fantasy Roleplaying in Worlds of Epic Adventure
Curumir wiped blood from a gash over his eye as he peered through the fog and gloom of the pine woods. Storm clouds were gathering¸ casting a deathly darkness over the boughs surrounding him. The sweet smell of sap filled his head. If he weren't fleeing for his life¸ the place would almost seem pleasant.
He'd been hounded for days¸ and his pursuers were gaining ground. A vast cracking noise split the darkness¸ and a huge inhuman monstrosity¸ slimy grey skin mottled with black scales¸ charged out of the dim wood. A great snarl erupted from the beast's tusked maw as a group of ragged-clothed bandits rushed up behind it.
"Give up the staff¸ wizard" growled the leader¸ inching forward¸ gripping a poisoned blade in one gnarled fist.
Curumir muttered an oath¸ and stepped forward. Eldritch flames instantly leapt up the length of his blade¸ casting a greenish glow across his attackers.
"There will be blood spilled tonight¸ Ranalf" Curumir spat at the bandit king. "But it will not be mine."
With a cry¸ Curumir rushed forward...
