Harsh Introductions

After searching the witches hut for items of value, and only coming up with useless trinkets, the group decided to move on to the village.

It is a small village with a large wooden palisade surrounding it. By the looks of it it has a large mill at the far side of the village next to a river that runs into a swamp.

After some debate on the tactics to use, Malus-Kai convinces the group that he can sneak up towards the rampart, and use prestidigitation to create the illusion of torches in the mist, so see how the guards react. Unfortunatly despite the concealment of fog, he is detected by the guards as he creeps into position.

When they call for him to show himself, he does. When ask if there are others, he calls for them to come over. Only Nalla remains hidden from the guards and manages to sneak within 30 feet of the palisade some 40 feet away from the group.

When the captain of the guard starts asking the others the same questions as Malus-Kai in order to determine if they are lying, Fargrim gives up on the charade and states plainly that they are here to kill them all. The guards are taken back by this, and the captain orders the rest of the guardsmen to attack.

When the group starts returning fire, they realize that the palisade wall is providing excellent cover to the guardsmen, and that hitting them will not be easy. When Malus-Kai realizes this he makes a brash move, he teleports [Find true name of this] over the palisade and behind the captain and delivers powerful blow with his poison dagger.

Nalla is the second to act, from her hiding space she runs and makes a great leap, easily grabbing the top of the 15 foot wall and flinging herself over with no injury to herself. She enters the fray in hopes of freeing Malus-Kai from the sights of the guardsmen.

Aidan Beriadan Attempts to assist from the other side of the wall by using his bow, as he has no easy way to cross the wall. Fargrim is in the same situation and also attempts to assist from the outside of the village. However the palisade provides great cover to the guards and nearly none for the two heroes as they exchange attacks across the wall.

Malus is in a very bad spot, when the guardsmen converge on him. He is gored by several of the spear men, which sap his strength as his life flows out of him every moment. In an act of desperation, Malus tumbles to the ground like an acrobat, allowing him to drop to the earth without opening his defenses to the spear men on the wall. However when he gets up he finds himself surrounded by even more guards. Quickly he casts sleep as they move to close in on him.

Nalla wades into a sea of men, hacking and chopping with her greatsword as she goes. As the cleric and the ranger exchange fire with those few guards still stationed at the wall, Nalla continues her thrashing of the men, as Malus runs as many of the men fall victum to his sleep spell.

In moments the fight is over, with Nalla and Malus killing the majority of the men with steel and spell, which allows for Aiden and Fargrim to crawl over the wall when the battle is mostly done.
