“I shall tell of the taking of the Teeth. Our squad was placed in an irksome position at the foot of one of the towers of the Teeth. Many of the rank-and-file were pinned and our infantry and archers were ineffective against the reinforced structure before us. With a mad dash across no-man’s-land, we made the right flank and Sox was able to blind the right battlement with a well placed arrow cast in darkness. Living up to my name, I made my way forward unseen to the picket line and rigged a grapple and rope to take down the fortifications thereby opening a breach in the initial defenses. A mad dash to the trench saw four of our number fall to missile fire, balls of flame, and other engines of war. Our warlock fell as well only to revived with one of Undertaker’s cruel concoctions.
Still unseen, I jumped the hillock leading to the ramp up and slew two crossbowmen. The party scrambled up the side and we were off to take the main tower. Entering the defensive trenches, we were able to make our way taking two guards unawares. In the trenches, our squad met resistance at the bunker complex doorways and were stung by fire and steel. Our dear Dragon and her companion saved the day by leaping the walls and taking the fight to our enemy. Through manipulation of the very earth, she was able to breach the entrance to the main bunker house and we were in.
Once inside, we wound our way to the ballistae that were raining explosive bolts upon our comrades. Again Sox delivered a globe of darkness and he and I were able to take offensive positions within the pillbox. Enemy spell casters with wicked wands struck at us and reversed our globe of darkness. Dragon and Ick fought well, with Ick taking wounds that would have fell’d many of us. The enemy was pressed, and in an act of desperation detonated the brace of explosive arrows before us. We barely managed an escape and still bear the marks of those flames. But the tower was ours! And the Teeth, broken…”
