Our adventurers awoke (sans intoxicated Grigori) in the pre-dawn hours, to a clamor coming from the Trelth Bridge. A fierce battle occurred, in which fellow Grovemate, Mulgor, nearly perished. Staying to the back lines, the party aided the citizen-militia (aided by a couple of Ashfoot warriors) in defending Trelth for a second time. T’lubl, the druidic squire to Mulgor, sends a post-battle messenger pigeon to Toadfen Grove.
The assault had been led by a strange, scarred orcish looking heavyweight, with abyssal patterns throughout its flesh (the body is now being held in the Temple of Pelor). By noon, J’hal and Fork hear a vibration getting closer and closer. Minutes later, the Augerborer wrecklessly emerges in Trelth, just outside of the Jovial Buffalo, knocking a cart of grapes’ wheel cleanly off of its axle.
After some brief moments of catching up, Grigori is finally on their feet again, with Isaac, just in time for a massive, scaled friend to arrive, landing a top the Gnomish drill-vehicle.
