Encounter 1: Our heroes chose to take a short rest before they fled the Wyrmkin stockade. As the rested they were approached by an animated construct of the White Seers. This huge rotting hulk of flesh was once a warped creature that had died in the battle at the main gate. Now it was under the control of a White Seer and it shouted that it had killed the Wyrmkin Chieftain. As the Wyrmkin rose to do battle with the warped beast and general chaos broke out in the enemy camp the heroes fled the stockade.
In order to escape back to Sanctuary, our heroes had to run through the rest of the Wyrmkin camp before the Wyrmkin could gather their forces (10 combat rounds). The heroes tried to move through the narrowest part of the camp to avoid enemy arrow fire and were quickly swarmed by the Wyrmkin defenders. Rostam noticed a Goliath prisoner crucified on the edge of the camp and the heroes chose to attempt a rescue.
In the midst of the battle, Lazerus called upon some reserves of magical energy that gave him great power but caused him to age another two years.
As the heroes fought their way to freedom a large Wyrmkin force gathered on a nearby hill and as the heroes raced towards safety they were struck by mass volleys of arrows that fell among them, piercing friend and foe alike.
In the end the heroes made it to safety, carrying both the Wyrmkin Chieftain’s Banner as well as the captured Goliath prisoner. They bled from many wounds and were exhausted to the point of near death, but the few defenders that yet remained on the wall covered the last hundred yards of their escape.
As the heroes collapsed with exhaustion they were told that there was a great battle between the Warped and the Wyrmkin in the enemy camp, that the southern gate they had fought so long to protect was now safe. As they fell asleep they could hear in the distance the boom of great cannons and the sounds of battle as the struggle for the city’s main gate continued…
