The Stirrings of Evil

The Chronicles XIV

Day 13
After waking up the wrong way, half the party drunk, the other upside down, the party decided to plot their own liberation attempts. The duergar made the first attempt easy for Tordek and Samash, who broke out, and tried to escape, but were re-captured in the duergar workshop, beaten unconscious and locked back up. At this point, the rest of the party stealth assaulted the Horned Hold, with Stabby getting the lock open quickly under stealth, and with the aid of Artaius and Kinsen, methodically killed the orcish guards. Halfway during the fight, Stabby spotted a dark-skinned dragonborn with a disturbing scar entering a chamber not far from their fight, and didn't appear at all concerned with the three heroes attacking the fortress. This same dragonborn, known as Arackgar, spent a few seconds taunting Tordek and Samash, before leaving them to their fates.
Soon after the party killed the orcs, they located not only the armory where Tordek's and Samash's equipment was, but also arrived in time to see Tordek flat on his face, having freed just his arms from the manacles holding him to the wall, but no the ankle restraints. Donning their gear, the now reunited party left the Hold so Tordek and Samash could heal back to normal. On their way out, Stabby and Artaius noticed Arackgar on one of the bridges, simply walk into some shadows and vanish.

Day 14
After spending a day resting and recovering, the party returned to the Hold, and this time assaulted the workshop where Tordek and Samash encounter a lot of duergar. This time, Samash and Tordek fared better, along with the rest of the party, killed the lot of them, including a very irritating (to Kinsen and Artaius) duergar scout, who kept disappearing from sight and sniping the party. After the battle, the party found some loot, then went exploring again, finding themselves in the western fort of the Hold, about to take on more duergar....
