Well, those dragons and wyverns got what for…and we collected a new member in the form of a dinosaur in the end too! Well, we headed down the tunnel since Shenora said she heard dragon voices. It had to be Blitz and some more pets. So I scouted ahead and at last came to the end of the tunnel which dropped off in a sheer cliff all the way down to the island below. But, anchored to the ship were two gold dragons, one fore and one aft. While talking about what to do, we heard a massive roar and looked up to see a gigantic blue and black dragon who was apparently Blitz’s boss giving him orders and talking about how he had disappointed them. Them? Who else was this dragon working with? Well, we came up with a plan. While Judge Asshole was getting his ass reamed, I was going to go invisible and free the dragons. While they make their getaway, the bigger, slower dragon would chase them and we’d have Blitz all to ourselves this time. We even had the spells ready this time. But wouldn’t you know it…once I free the dragons(hey were very nice by the way…and thankful) it was Blitz who went after them which left the big black and blue baddie set in our sights. I think Shenora made a joke about how we were going to beat him blacker and bluer or something right before her and Suhrlock threw fireballs at him, which didn’t seem to do much more than piss him off. In an attempt to get him down to our level(since he was like 300 feet away and in is element), we retreated back into the tunnel to get to the room where we killed the smaller blue dragons and wyverns. But somehow, he beat us there. And he was NOT happy to see his kids murdered. As we arrived and saw him there, he breathed some sort of odd breath weapon at us. Suhrlock’s pet went running and the rest of us avoided it for the most part. But with his ability to reduce damage and staying up high on the rim of the ridge and do distance attacks and magic at us, I was totally useless since I didn’t have the ability to fly at that point. I attempted to climb the walls with a spider climb potion but as I started up the wall, I heard a loud roar as Shenora plucked out one of his eyeballs and he turned and ran.
Shenora and I headed back to the ship via teleport to find Harrigan and Rickety but we ended up finding them near the guard quarters. Apparently the eye was exactly what Harrigan needed for a spell he was concocting to fight the 50-60 dragons heading back this way with their big blue and black buddy hanging in the back like a pansy. He also needed any other dragon eyes we could get our hands on. SO we teleported back to get the 4 other eyes of the smaller dragons. He had the guards set them up around the island as quickly as possible and started his spell. And just as he finished, the dragons hit us. But we had backup. Harrigan had teleported his adamantine golems to the island and they were going toe to toe with the dragons and bodies were piling up faster on the dragon side that the golem and flying human side. As a result, the island was slowly descending. But Blitz showed back up and we had to do what we could to prevent him from interrupting Harrigan and his spellcasting. As we were fighting him off, we had to dodge breath weapons left and right and I almost, ALMOST, got hit by one.
As we got lower and lower, Harrigan told Shenora to release the ship so she got to do her thing and turned the rock to mud so there was less to keep the island floating as well as the ship itself and as she did it, the big dragon towered above right as the island hit the water causing the geyser and the ship to shoot straight through the hole and blasted him to…..somewhere….
With everything back to normal, and another island to control(and mine for now another reliable money line), we did some recruiting, we have some people to protect the new investment and we can continue on to get to Aqueduct 8…but I can’t stop thinking about all those dead dragons….and all of those unprotected hoards just waiting for new masters…..
