Raged The Storm

(4 Jastatos 5114:  Wehnimer’s Landing)

Outside raged the storm, the battle.

Heralded by blood rain and clouds out of nowhere, the bardess fled to the safety of the city. She had no sooner asked, “What is happening?” in the Town Square when she could see many, many huge Airships headed towards the Landing.

(Blots of ink make nothing but a dark scratched out spot where the first word used to be) took her hand and they sought refuge with Helga, where they knew they would not add to the body count that surely must be headed their way. (At Helga’s with a city guard, interestingly enough, who must have been on his … “break”.)

This is how she came to be here. The amulet granted her access to thoughts, where she heard defenders coordinating and reporting victories, setbacks, and urgent needs. She could hear a terrible raging storm through the walls. All in all, she was glad she wasn’t alone.

Inside, she knew she was safe (more blots of ink completely obfuscate something). But the thoughts from the various people left her with more questions than answers. Why was the area under attack? By whom? How could people destroy an airship? Why … golems?!

Sandwiched between everyday snippets of conversation, she was worried by the things she heard in her head. She jumped when a horrible noise made the building shake, throwing her arms around the striking man who had become her companion. Her heart was racing.

Was it the storm outside, or this new one, inside, that caused her heart to race so?
