" Set yourself free"….that is the last thing I recall saying before waking up. There was a sudden rushing and cacophony of noise then everything went silent. Now all I can see is the sky. I start to get up and the rest of our party is not in sight. I wonder where they went off to. Kaine, Rabble, Lunara, and I start to get our bearings. We notice that where the portal once was is now a perfectly cleared circle. We all decide to start walking through the grasslands. All of a sudden I see something move out of the corner of my eye. Lunara snuck a little bit closer to where the movement came from. She was hit by something and collapsed! I hope she is ok. All of a sudden Rabble was shot in the neck and shoulder by what looks to be darts…something seems familiar…
We are being attacked by those gross, creepy, cannibalistic gnomes. They are a disgrace to my race! I tried to give them what to, what for!
S: Hey! Why are you doing this?!
CG: You look tasty…
S: You look tasty…..yummy…(in hindsight, probably not the best thing to say)
That liitle stink pot shot me with a dart! Did I give in to it you ask? NO! Nothing but a little bee sting. These gnomes are out of control, gnashing teeth, blowing darts, weird growls…disgusting creatures. I have half a mind to go with them and talk some sense into whoever their leader is.
All of a sudden Bear is attacked by a cheetah – Oh Bother.
Kaine thankfully is able to take a chunk out of the cheetah with his chains then slashes a gnome right across his throat. It was truly a nasty sight to behold.
I start to feel really sleepy and lethargic. Everything goes dark. I don’t think it is too long before I am able to wake up and discover that these gnomes are still at it! They just will not stop.I have had it with them and I throw words of shame at them! They cower in their shame and I tie them up. Surprisingly I find I quite good at tying knots!
After the kerfuffle we look around and see that Lunara is gone. Nowhere to be seen. Kaine lifts Rabble up onto his shoulders to see if he can spot her anywhere. After all she has been known to run off. However that is not the case this time. As Rabble looks around he discovers that Lunara is badly injured and is being carried away by a couple of other gnomes! Rabble orders Bear to chase after them. The gnomes drop her and when we reach her, I am able to help heal her. As Lunara comes back around, we start talking about where we could possibly be in time. Lunara and I start to have a disagreement about whether or not we should try to fulfill the prophecy. I am sure this is something that we will continue to butt heads over. Oh well.
As we start to settle in for the night I can’t help but think about my family. Have they thought about me? How much time has passed? Has any time passed? Are they worried? Are they all ok? I really hope everything is good and well with them.
