Kingspire

A new face

Still needs fixes to spelling and editing

The party comes up to the window of the mill and sees a huge large disfigured human. He stands over 8 feet tall and is nearly 6 feet wide at the shoulders. He is seen pushing a human leg into chute leading into the millstone. The machine has been turned from a simple flour mill to a large scale meat grinder.

As they look across the room, looking for other creatures, they notice a human, a knight or paladin by the looks of his armor, bound and gagged along an inside wall. With the deafening noise of the machinery filling the room, they risk a rescue before engaging the foul beast.

Malus-Kai quietly opens the door, and silently enters the mill, careful to stay in the shadows when he can. He reaches the paladin, cuts the ropes with his dagger, and the two head back out towards the door. Unfortunately, the deformed figure catches sight of the two’s escape out of the corner of his eyes. He drops the leg into the chute, grabs his huge club and smites the escaping wizard.

The wizard barely dodges the hit. The club scraps across his back as it slams into the ground, causing his cloak to tear away and his back to start to glistening red with blood. The wizard fades and teleports away remaining insubstantial for a moment, while slamming the creature with a magic missile.

The paladin bolstered by the unbendable faith of his god, challenges the creature as he slashes at it with his sword. The beasts uses his club to deflect the blow, but he feels the compulsion of a higher power connect to his soul he feels the compulsion to focus his anger upon Bahumouts choosen.

With amazing speed Nalla runs to the door and charges full bore into the creature sword first. The creature uses its huge size to redirect the blade that surly would have killed a normal man. Instead the sword barely grazes the forearm of the beastman.

Fargrim, having not the blessing of the long legs of Nalla, smashes through the glass of the mill with a deft leap, and closes to spell distance. He lets fly with a bright lance of faith which installs hope within Nalla.

The fight continues on with the Paladin calling upon all of his powers to bring death and final destruction down upon the foul creature. The beast soon starts feeling the power of behumount with every strike against the formidable group. Finally enraged and bloody, caring only to kill just one of the group with his last breath, the creature grabs and pulls Fargrim towards the meat grinder.

But the mighty dwarf has much experience fighting large opponents, and manages to stop himself before his feet touch the grindstone. Malus-Kai unleashes a force bolt and breaks the up the beast from the dwarf. With his last chance at a minor victory gone, the beast now starts swinging blindly at the nearest hero. And in moments it is over. The strength finally fades and he drops to the ground dead.
