The Gate has been Breached!
At this moment a guard comes down the tunnel yelling, the gate of the keep had been breached. The group split into two groups. Arthur led one group made up of Hadrar, Nizitz and Helja up from the river to provide a blocking force outside the castle. While Zatara led Callie and Pete back up the tunnel to secure the keep from inside.
Zatara’s group encounters a small raiding party inside the courtyard of the keep and immediately attacks them. During the attack Zatara valiantly terminates Kobolds and Cultist left and right all the while taunting them about their inept fighting skills. Unfortunately, a Kobold spear lashes out with a lucky strike. It hits Zatara in the throat, severing her voice box. Meanwhile Pete Lightmagic, the groups wizard, was casting spells at a fast and furious pace. He unfortunately loses control of a spell and gives Callie the shock of her life as lighting courses though her body. Pete recovering from that mistake casts more magic aiding the group. Only after a few rounds of combat fate strikes again and in the heat of battle Pete cast a spell that goes awry. Pete is knocked down after a pyrotechnic burst of flame and energy explode at his feet. In the End Zatara and her band prove victorious and secure the inside of the keep.
Meanwhile outside the gate Arthur and his band encounter a large raiding party headed for the keep. Nizitz quickly cast a color spray spell, blinding this group of raiders. Arthur, Hadrar and Helja make quick work of eliminating the raiders and securing the outside of the keep. Nizitz then using magic, fixes the gate.
