The Knight Watch
Session 9 Part 5
The guys take a breather, have a look at the remains of the Stone Dwarves, and slap the Bullywug back to consciousness- Morok can speak primordial, the Bullywug understands, the creature is called Burp.
First up however are the Stone Dwarves- constructs, animated somehow, part of the Sky Home’s defence system Ayumu presumes, further evidence is discovered- a maker’s mark of sorts. Some sort of emblem, a hammer sparking as it is brought down on to an anvil- the background a huge fortress, all of this etched into a shield-shaped badge. The guys identify the mark, they’ve seen it before, on the metal man- Annihilatorr they fought in the swamp- the Hammerfast Master Smith’s Guild.
Burp is swiftly and bluntly interrogated, it seems the Bullywug Mud Lord and his Lizardfolk colleague followed the Knights in to the Sky Home- still Ayumu has an idea, the Bullywug is dragged in to the chamber in the Sky Home in which the swamp has intruded.
Burp is manhandled a little, in to position, and chinned- Ayumu punches the frog man in the face. Which surprises the other adventurers- a single drop of blood falls from the Bullywug’s mouth in to the swamp- the Sky Home fades away.
And suddenly the Knights, with Burp, find themselves…
Back in the Sky Home…
“Where are we going to get a Lord’s blood from?” Ayumu pondered earlier- and the answer is from a Bullwug Mud Lord.
This version of the Sky Home has several differences from the previous incarnation- the fog and mist is closing in rapidly- seemingly lurching towards the adventurers, worse still spectral appendages- claws, tentacles et al are reaching out to harm the Knights.
The next change is the fact that the walls of the Sky Home are translucent, the Knights can see through them- and there’s something new to see, a set of stairs leading up.
And with that the session ends.
