The Fireside Tales: Hunt
Hunt - Chapter Twelve
Oct 27th 2017
~ 12 ~
18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Kenabres
Ever since they fell into the tunnels and caverns underneath Kenabres, Shayliss had done her best to make sure she did not think about what may have been happening within the city. It would have been a great distraction to the battles of life and death she had been a part of in the past three or four days. But, since they had left the maze and its horde of mongrelmen and cultists behind, she could not help but put the condition of the city in the forefront of her thoughts.
Hunt - Chapter Eleven
Oct 20th 2017
~ 11 ~
18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Mongrel Base
The base had grown quiet since the group's fight with Hosilla, the human cultist. It was as if her death stopped the alarms and fighting all together. Shayliss knew that was not true. The mongrelmen were just waiting for the group to poke their head out from around a corner carelessly. That way they can send arrows into the group's skulls.
Hunt - Chapter Ten

18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Mongrel Base
Strune stepped forward and pointed her slightly glowing longsword at the human woman, "Stand down. There has been enough blood drawn."
Hunt - Chapter Nine
Oct 6th 2017
~ 9 ~
18 Arodus, 4692 AR; Neathholm
Standing in front of the traitor's base, Shayliss wondered if ignoring 'herself' was such a great idea. The previous night had been hours of fun, laughter and play. They had tasted the exotic drinks the mongrelmen brewed from the biolucent fungus, which managed to give the drinks a strangely sweet taste. They danced the rather awkward and strange dances that the mongrelmen made look elegant and beautiful and they even learned a new card game the mongrelmen had created. Shayliss felt the corner of the massive box the mongrelmen handed her poking at her back through the backpack she had also been given for holding the game's collection of cards. Even Snaga came from his self-entrapment of a room and observed.
Hunt - Chapter Eight
Sep 29th 2017
~ 8 ~
17 Arodus, 4692 AR; Neathholm
Lann stepped forward and gave the man a very human-like and formal bow. When she saw that Crel, Dyra and Strune were doing the same, Shayliss decided to follow their lead. She was taught that a lady ought to curtsy, bending at the knees with arms out to the sides. Yet, she did not want to offend, so she bent down in a bow. It was very uncomfortable and most likely showed various pieces that should not be shown, but the Chief was pleased anyway.
Hunt - Chapter Seven
Sep 22nd 2017
~ 7 ~
17 Arodus, 4692 AR; Under Kenabres
Nearly an hour later, the group struggling just to put one foot in front of the other (excluding the mongrelmen, who had energy to spare for the rest of them), they arrived at a small cavern. Throughout the trip, Aravashnial had been asking various questions to the escorts, but when he saw what was in the cavern, he halted his stream of questions. Anevia let out a gasp of surprise and even Horgus fell silent.
Hunt - Chapter Six
Sep 15th 2017
~ 6 ~
17 Arodus, 4692 AR; Under Kenabres
After recovering from that massive fight by Strune and Kaira's healing magic, making sure everyone was still in one piece and scouring the dwarf's campsite in the next cavern over, the group continued moving forward. As they did, Aravashnial talked about the statues they found in the first cavern. Apparently, they were supposed to depict those from the First Crusade who were supposed to have left the surface to live under the ground. Abyssal energies from the initial battles had corrupted the crusaders and their children started to be born malformed, fiendish, half-creature. They left their homes in order to raise their children outside the scrutiny of the surviving crusaders.
Hunt - Chapter Five
Sep 8th 2017
~ 5 ~
17 Arodus, 4692 AR; Under Kenabres
"Damn. I was afraid of this."
Hunt - Chapter Four
Sep 1st 2017
~ 4 ~16 Arodus 4692 AR; Temple of Torag Courtyard
Fearing the worst, Shayliss yelled, "Strune! Go!"
Strune was already moving though. Her plated feet clanged against the stone of the temple as she ran as fast as she could outside. Mordria and Kaira, with Blueeye, were close behind, rounding the corner of the antechamber to head around the back of the temple. Slower than them, Shayliss and Snaga took the rear.
Hunt - Chapter Three
Aug 25th 2017
~ 3 ~
16 Arodus 4692 AR; Under Kenabres
The caverns were silent. Shayliss had expected to be hearing something from the world above, assuming the demons were still assaulting the city. Some thuds, shaking, or cries from further in the tunnel maybe. However, the only sounds they heard were the drips of moisture and the group's footsteps. Maybe Shayliss wanted those noises. It would mean that she at least had an idea of what was ahead of them or behind them. The silence was worse for its uncertainty.
