At the end of the last session, we left our heroes standing triumphantly in Xul-Jarak’s throne room over the corpses of many slain orc warriors. However, the orc’s critically injured leader, Daazlag, had eluded them by cloaking himself in invisibility.
At the end of the last session we left our heroes atop Xul-Jarak’s battlements having breached the fortress without too much trouble.
After, the harrowing events surrounding their failed exploration of Xul-Jarak, the survivors rested in Ratikhill for a little over a month. As Ratik’s armies mustered about the city in preparation for moving east to confronting the orcs, the heroes pondered their options…
Several weeks ago, the survivors of the main adventuring group staggered back into Glister after retreating from Xul-Jarak. They rested in Glister overnight – sending messages onward to Ratikhill via fast horseman. Their injuries were great, however, and so they elected to rest a few days before making their own way to Lord Nanther.
At the end of last session, we left our heroes yet trapped in the bowels of Xul-Jarak. They had climbed through several levels and had dispatched many orcs. However, at this point, they suddenly decided to turn around, retreat back deeper into the dungeon and try to find a place to rest overnight.
