Lunnaya Tehn does not have the time to notice any actions from the others guards that he could have seen when climbing into the encampment, for the one who could not is almost within arm's reach. That Deviard reacts quickly, but nearly as quickly as Tehn, who simply waits at the ready, since he is a defensive combatant.

The image of all Deviards blur as each one begins to move. The one next two Tehn swings a hammer, and the both at the slave pen run toward Tehn, seeing that Coldtree is also moving in that direction. The one at the main also runs toward Tehn and Coldtree, while the one at the hunting gate runs toward Bjorn.

The encampment is rather small, being only about 20 strides in length from the hunting to the main gate, but Nigel Coldtree cannot yet generate an area of effect. Seeing that the slave pen guards are the closer threat, he simply waves his hand, as he begins to run, and a strong gust of wind whips up dust, swirling it around those two and stinging their eyes. As he rounds the corner of the structure on his left, he sees that Tehn is already engaged with a, previously, unseen opponent.

Tehn blocks the hammer strike with his left saber, sticking his right through the leather armor and into the chest, just below the left clavicle, pulling his left back across the torso as he moves away. That Deviard falls, not dead but no longer a physical threat.

The slave pen guards reach Tehn and Coldtree, as Bjorn and the hunting gate guard reach each other. Lightning plays across the carving axe of Bjorn as he swings it. Sparks fly as the axe is blocked by the Deviard's metal shield, neither able to hurt the other. Taking a step toward the slave guards, neither Coldtree nor Tehn is hit, but neither can hurt the new opponents either. The main gate guards close on Tehn and Coldtree.

The only Deviard who was unseen, until entering the grounds, lays on the ground from the previous wounds inflicted from the sword of Lunnaya. One of the slave guards receives a minor cut as Lunnaya turns his attention, but all other physical combat proves to be unfruitful, as sparks and flashes of light accompany every movement of all of those engaged.

Nigel, being formidably resilient is more difficult to mystically assault than the other two, who both become momentarily dazed by the flashes of light. This only has a trivial effect on the two. Being that electromagnetic manipulation is the primary focus of the Deviard, all current attempts to affect one of them, unravel.

When the main gate guard joins the fray with Lunnaya and Nigel, swinging a hammer at the Faethrin, the man seems as agile as viper, despite the double-team. The hammer strike is not completely blocked but it causes not damage. Bjorn is still engaged one-on-one. Tehn and Coldtree are now two-on-three. Only four seconds have passed since the first swing.

Shaking his head over forgetting how the Deviard are specialists in electricity, Coldtree changes tactics. He will attack the same opponent, striking with hand to hand, but this time he will manipulate waylines to use Toxin, using an Ant Stinger to improve the effect.

Having chosen the same pathway of mystical talent as the Deviard, in deliberate spite to the hostile tribe, Bjorn must prove to himself and to his enemy that he is more formidable. Having forgotten the benefit and neglected to use any augmenting materials, he will enhance his talent with an ingot of aluminum, as he continues to assault the Deviard.

Because Lunnaya is wielding weapons and Nigel is not, of the three Deviards engaged with the two men, two of them team on Tehn, which does not help them, at all. The Deviards seem to have slowed a bit, but Lunnaya has not. Blocking the assault of the first, he catches the hammer with the back of his right blade, stabbing his left into the chest, just below the pectoral muscle and into the lung. The follow through with the right, cuts the Deviard's throat and kills him, outright. Blocking the arm of the second opponent, his sword cuts deeply into the forearm, ruining the arm.

Coldtree strikes first. Though his punch does not prove damaging, the Deviard seems to be a bit off-kilter from the contact. Easily avoiding the hammer of the enemy, Nigel strikes again, though the punch feels no more effective than the first, the Deviard falls unconscious. Coldtree later discovers that, with the two punches, he had made use of an ant stinger and a porcupine quill, which was even more effective.

In the course of his engagement, Bjorn and his opponent seem to be on equal footing in the physical realm, neither being able to hit the other; but with the addition of the aluminum, Bjorn becomes superior with his mystical assault, electrocuting the Deviard four times. He later discovers that he burned through all of the party's aluminum in the process.

In a matter of about 12 seconds, the DWAC was able to overcome the five remaining Deviard guards, though only one is dead. Three cannot physically move, though they could still manipulate waylines, albeit futilely, since the three men have resisted every previous attempt. One is unconscious.

Coldtree reminds the group of the fallen Deviards, "Do not touch them skin to skin, or they can drain your life to heal. Let us see what we can claim from this village and be gone, like ghosts."
Coldtree will visit the slave pens first. If there are any captives, he will free them. He will search the village for valuable items, placing priority on metals and gems.

Bjorn thanks Coldtree. Since he is wielding a hammer, he uses it to finish his enemy, taking his weapon, buckler, and gear, then leaving the body where it lies. He trots toward the slave pen, in case it needs to be broken open. "I suspect we may not have an excessive amount of time. We should have a later opportunity to return. Our tactic here seems to have been a success."

Coldtree reminds... visit... search...
Bjorn thanks... finish... trots...
Tehn finishes the other guards by throwing his sword into their guts, one by one. When Coldtree heads for the slave pen, he gleans the fallen then walks into the structure behind him, that appears to be some kind of office.

Neither Bjorn nor Lunnaya is hurt during the process of finishing the enemies. The slave pen is secured by a simple mechanism of having a log placed, like a beam, across the opening, in slots made to hold them near the top and bottom of the door. Bjorn and Nigel easily remove them, together, and toss them aside, allowing the door to be pulled open.

Inside, the captives, who had backed away from the opening when the doors began to move, begin to file into a line, not yet realizing that their captors are dead. There are eight of them, seven males and one female, of various Mhytre tribes. The lone female is a Kozzog, like Bjorn.

Inside the structure he entered, Lunnaya finds that it must be some kind of an office and it contains strong evidence that the Deviards are far more advanced than some simple psychotics like the Medderin. There is a series of bins, most of which contain samples of different ores and a pliable piece of leather with definitive, yet unfamiliar writing on it. There is also a cold anvil stone off to one side that has blood on it. It looks to be used like some kind of alter for sacrifice. There is more to this room but it will take more time to fully peruse it.

There are at least two, possible three more structures partially constructed into the mountain. It stands to reason that one or more will be sleeping quarters and one should be a smithy.

Coldtree will search the altar room thoroughly. He will take the piece of leather, hoping to translate it later or at least deny the Deviards what it records. He will take any valuable pieces of metal and any unfamiliar ones if the weight is not too much. When he finishes with the room, he tells the group, "We should not be here too long. We did enough damage and freed the slaves. Let us be off." He does not intend to let the slaves follow them; they are on their own.

Bjorn waves both arms to get the attention of the freed captives. He motions for them to follow him, as Coldtree enters the structure where Tehn had gone. He removes the bar from the front gate gesturing that they are free to go. He speaks to the Kozzog female to send a message back to their monastery.

Nigel takes the leather scroll and rolls it up to make it easier to carry along. He and Lunnaya quickly empty the small bins of their differing ores, not bothering to count anything at the time, but ingots of 13 different metals were gathered and dispersed between the two of them. Exiting the office, they see that Bjorn is finishing a conversation with the female Kozzog, who then departs on her own.

The three men leave through the main gate, unable to close it behind. Even if the remaining Deviard return to their encampment soon and decide to give chase, the men will be hour ahead and impossible to track. Stopping for rest and making camp late in the afternoon, no sign of pursuit is heard not sign of the freed slaves seen.

While camped, Coldtree will go over the ingots to try and classify them, and attempt to decipher the leather scroll.
He asks Bjorn, "Out of curiosity, what did you say to the woman?"

... Coldtree... asks Bjorn, "Out of curiosity, what did you say to the woman?"
Bjorn, who is also helping to classify the differing metals, looks up from fiddling with a few of the ingots acquired from the Deviard camp. "The woman? Oh! Yes. I asked her, her name and if she were from my community. She is. I told her to convey that things were going well, so far, upon her return."

There are 7 ingots of zinc, 7 of iron, and 4 of aluminum, which are readily recognized and set aside. There are 10 ingots of magnesium and 4 ingots of chromium, which are not so readily recognized, but still require little concentration, as they have been collected before. It is recognized that the party already had 4 ingots of magnesium that had not yet been identified.

Nigel, while first separating the haul simply by looks and touch, pauses at a small handful of dark, fairly soft metal with a purplish tint to it. Later learning that the substance is called manganese, what he quickly realizes through his mystical analysis is that the metal is naturally toxic and can be used by a Psionicist to siphon life from another. There are 5 of these ingots in total.

Lunnaya gathers some similar ingots, also 5 in total, that are not quite as soft and more iridescent than purplish. Later learning that this metal is called nickel, has benefit to smithing, and discovers that it can be used by a Psionicist to significantly enhance electrical shock.

Bjorn gathers a handful of brownish, iridescent, hard metal, 10 in total, that are later learned to be called molybdenum, a metal highly sought for the manufacture of a weather resistance alloy. It can be used by a Psionicist to significantly enhance electrical shock or mystical compulsion.

Nigel sets aside 7, shiny, reddish-orange, moderately soft ingots that the party later learns are called copper, which is used in the manufacture of jewelry and coins. He discovers that, like all of the identified metals, it may be used by a Psionicist to significantly increase electrical shock or mystical compulsion. Bjorn is the party's Psionicist.

Lunnaya separates 8, bright, shiny, soft ingots that are later learned to be called silver, which is used in the manufacture of jewelry and coins. Ingots that can not be identified include 7 that are bright, shiny, soft and yellow, 10 that look like the silver but are slightly darker and slightly harder, 8 that look like the magnesium but are much harder, Coldtree recognizing that it is titanium but not its use, 7 that are almost the same yellow color as the 7 others but much harder, and 1 ingot with a bluish tint, that is very hard.

Logistically the leather scroll seems to contain information about the various metals. It is deduced that the information includes locations and quantities but nothing specific can be discerned from the Deviard script.

Kwargrow

Gamer Extraordinaire
If Coldtree has gleaned all he can from the Deviard leather, he will burn it in the campfire. If no one objects he will take the emberstone from inventory to replace the peccary tusks he was using.
He asks the group, "Should we return to our employers now to report on our success?"

Bjorn balks at the notion of burning the written record. "Hey! Hold off on that notion, if you would. We may not be able to decipher that script but the ledger may contain valuable information and my community or Midway may have someone to figure it out."

MacConnell

Creator of The Untamed Wilds
Bjorn thanks Nigel and secures the Deviard ledger in the back of his belt so that it will be safe and not interfere with travel or the use of his arms. The return to the Kozzog Monastery is routine and the party's arrival is expected, having been informed of their success by the freed female. The head foreman is elated at the presentation of the Deviard ledger. He even has some knowledge of their numbering system. He responds to the group in Orngaddrin. "This appears to be a meticulous mining record. If we can decipher it in its entirety, it should provides us, not only with mineral data that the Deviard have discovered, but also the possibility of where they have prospected. We will share this information with Midway. This is a great find!"

The elders then offer the DWAC 100 ingots of silver as reward. Others of the community, though naturally less outgoing than other Mhytres, make a point of meeting and speaking with the members, some of whom simply want to clasp arms and nothing more. Some, who are female, offering considerably more, though a bit trepidatiously, as they are young, even to Lunnaya, who is Faethrin. As the day wanes on into evening and the party is offered respite, the head foreman approaches. "You have accomplished far more than could was expected from such a venture, especially when dealing with Deviards. As a community we would like to ask if you could be hired to see this effort to its completion in assuring that the Deviards leave this area for good... one way or another?"
