My King Grol Rendition

Dnd sat

As you barge in you startle a large bugbear wearing a gem encrusted silver crown.

A large wolf sits at his heels

The bugbear was conversing with a female drow dressed in dark leather armor with a black hooded cloak covering her face

The chamber is setup as a crude living space with various hide rugs thrown about a large bed sits in the north end next to a brazier filled with glowing hot coals. To the south there is a table and chairs and on the ground next to them lies a badly beaten dwarf who look to be just barely clinging to life

The bugbear looks at you and in a deep booming voice says

Who are you and whats your business here?

If asked

I am King grol and this is my castle. Now tell me why shouldnt o kill you all right now?

Combat started

The drow faces you pulling two daggers from her belt. She suddenly turns and jams one of her daggers in the the small opening between grols chest piece and shoulder pad.

Roll d6 dmg

Grol let’s out a yell that turn in to a deep growl he grabs his morning g star from his back and slashes it fiercely through the air hoping to catch a piece of the drow.

Dodge rolls back toward the party dodging the attack.

If the party attack veelith

Veelith wipes the blood from her face and start to laugh

Suddenly a dark cloud of black and purple fog engulfs the drow woman.

It clears in just seconds revealing an 8 foot tall humanoid creature with grew skin long gangly arms and milky white eyes

The creature speaks

I gave you an out and you didnt take it? Ah so gundren and the map are in your thoughts. The forge and the cave that holds it still out of reach. This magic is not yours to wield
