Shadow Company

Madness in the Black Pit

Sergeant Javon steps forward slowly toward the magical flames.

“Here one and all the glory of the Holy Boys!” he begins, smiling at the “hoo-ya” exclaimed by his team behind him.

“From the shores of Xen’Drik to these ‘human’ lands, the Holy Boys have gotten the job done. We were instrumental in preserving many of the Shadow Company who departed our homeland in the midst of an assault by giants, driving back a land assault in tandem with the Demon Masks. Swordsman Duavek (or would he name him by nickname, Cook?) slew two ogres with single blows of his mighty blade!” Again barks of rowdy respect come from the Holy Boys lounging nearby.

“From there we entered the war proper, doing our jobs until the Black Pit…” he lets that ominous and now infamous name sink in among all those nearby. “On the way to eliminate the Andarian threat, we destroyed a pit of madness and rescued Topper and Harbinger from captivity. Gasher showed great courage and skill, moving among the enemy like a ghost. In destroying the demonic catapult, the Holy Boys were nearly destroyed before I was able to summon the magical strength to slay its gigantic, minotaur guardian.”

“We entered the doomed village of Black Pit and found the Demon Masks, pushing forward together and penetrating the heart of the foul corruption of that place. We fought a horde of damned creatures led by a powerful mind flayer. Cook again brought fear and pain to the enemy, standing toe-to-toe with one of the great minotaurs. But only the song of the Chronicler held the minotaur’s hand and gave Cook the shot to split its head in half. Chill slew the mind flayer with all the pent-up vengeance of his people, erupting the creatures head in an explosion of gore and pinning its corpse to the far wall with an array of arrows. He also risked running back into the horde as we began our withdrawal to rescue Topper and Harbinger, bringing them back safe.”

Each member of the Holy Boys rises, walks to the flame and places their favored weapon’s blade into the roaring light.

“Many feats of bravery and skill were achieved by the Demon Masks, but that is their Sergeant’s tale to tell…” ends Smiley.

(Note: I think I got the details right, but I could be corrected if I mis-assigned an accomplishment or feat to the wrong character or wrong squad. This was how I think it went down, letting Mark fill in the details for the Demon Masks. Also, I think I got a heroic moment for everyone except Princess. Remind me of any I missed, especially moments with her.)
