Alright, character background. Report of the adventure is coming in soon(tm).

First of all, he's now called Ilanor, because it was a bit weird to be the only one using my own name (or SB name, I suppose, but that really is just my own name whenever I'm on the internet).

Ilanor grew up in an elven city, but like many elves, he often traveled to the countryside. In his case, he often looked for unicorns, majestic creatures - too magnificent to be called animals - and admired their stately nature. In the meanwhile, he had shown great promise with the sword, and even had private lessons from Elara Feywing. As he grew up, it appeared he would spend his life in the city, most likely doing something related to his talent with the sword, when he received a parchment that was sent on Elara's death. It told of the evil Zargothrax, who had raised an army of undead unicorns to conquer - or destroy, what did it matter? - the world.

Unable to bear the knowledge of this abomination, Ilanor sought the party that had assembled, and came across Elnan Brushhil, who often helped out the party, even though at that moment he was not with them. He led Ilanor to the party, and thus Ilanor's journey to save the unicorns - and grant mercy to those already lost - started in earnest.

There we go, this is the first week. For the last fight (we had 3!) I tried a bit of a different writing style which is easier to write but also less detailed, tell me what you think.

As the party got ready to leave, two people surprisingly showed up at the dyrad’s grove. Elnan Brushhill had, of course, joined up with the party before, but this time he brought someone else with him. The elf introduced himself as Ilanor, and explained that he was a talented fighter who had simply been looking for a way to use those talents for the good of the world, and Elnan had picked him up when they met a short while ago.

Together, the party left for the mountain indicated by the dryad. After some traveling, the forest thinned out and the landscape became more barren, only a few trees dotting the hillside. As they continued traveling, they unexpectedly came across a tree with some weird… bulges around it. Not much time was needed to establish that a troll was trying to hide behind it, but that it was so big it poked out around it at all sides.

Sir Ludwig was first to charge in, delivering a strong blow on the troll. Next, Felor called down powerful lightning, battering the troll. Immediately after, Elnan flanked the troll and delivered several fiery strikes from a distance, making sure he would not get hit by the lightning from Felor.

Subsequently, Ilanor moved in as well, striking the troll once more as well, though missing his second strike. Seline then attempted to demoralize the troll by mocking his intelligence – what made him think, after all, that he could hide behind that tree – but it seemed to only make him angrier, as he then turned to Elnan – ignoring Sir Ludwig’s hit on his back – and mauled him with several fierce strikes, to then bite him to finish him off.

Munizard killed the troll – who had already been significantly wounded – with some magic missiles, as Felor made his way over to Elnan to heal him.

With the troll dead, the party continued, and using the dryad’s directions they found the stone arch that marked the start of the road they had to take to find the Astral Hammer. However, already after the first corner a group of hostile creatures awaited them. These creatures were, it appeared, an owlbear, two bugbears, two hobgoblins and a wolf.

Elnan was first to react, and immediately took down the wolf with some well-aimed darts. Ilanor was next to dash into the fray, but the owlbear dodged his attacks. In return, one of the hobgoblins threw a spear that took him right through the chest, and to top it off he got a bite from the owlbear’s beak.

Next, Sir Ludwig charged in and delivered two very strong hits on one of the bugbears. Munizard then conjured a flaming sphere between the creatures, and Seline scared away a hobgoblin with dissonant whispers. One of the bugbears then smacked Sir Ludwig with his morningstar, but got struck in return by Elnan, who had decided to take it up close – relatively – with his spear.

Immediately after, Ilanor released a flurry of attacks, striking at both the owlbear and the bugbear, hitting both several times and wounding the owlbear in particular. In the meanwhile, Felor conjured his magical dolphin hammer of glory and struck the bugbear in the back of his head, believing the owlbear to not be a threat anymore. That turned out to be a big mistake, as the owlbear, wounded though he was, took revenge on Ilanor and took him down with some quick strikes from his claws and a devastating bite, but Sir Ludwig quickly brought him back from the brink.

Seline tried to mock another of the creatures, but it was as ineffective as it had been with the troll. Next, a bugbear tried to strike Felor, but the greatsword ineffectively bounced off Felor’s armor. Elnan did get a number of successful strikes in, killing the bugbear. Ilanor tried to hit the owlbear, but was not quite over his first near-death experience yet and did not even get close to hitting the creature. At the same time, the other bugbear – who was still alive until this point – got taken down by Felor. Sir Ludwig then downed the owlbear, though he did awkwardly miss the wounded creature on his first attempt.

Munizard then moved the flaming sphere forward and charged forward, electrifying a hobgoblin with his touch, as the entire party moved forward to overwhelm the other hobgoblin.
Afterwards, the party decided to rest for a short time, to tend to their wounds, perhaps get healed a bit by Seline’s Song of Healing, and try to skin the wolf, which Elnan failed at quite spectacularly – though it did mean wolf stew for dinner.

After the rest, the party moved on over the path, and when rounding the very next corner, Elnan spotted their newest challenge. Two ghouls, two zombies and a skeleton flanked a skeletal minotaur. The party quickly decided to use the terrain to their advantage, and Ilanor and Sir Ludwig positioned themselves next to one another, flanked by the mountainside in both directions and the others behind them.

Some arrows and spells started flying this way and that, as the skeleton readied his bow and Munizard and Seline consulted their spellbooks. The ghouls took defensive positions on the sides of the path as the minotaur moved forward, and Elnan attempted some shots with the javelins he’d looted from the hobgoblins, though the ghouls were wary and hard to hit. All the while, some members of the party had this vague but distinct feeling of something being wrong.

Sir Ludwig cast a baneful spell, cursing the minotaur, joining the still ongoing battle in the air – a battle, though, that was heavily won by the party, as the monsters barely had any ranged weaponry. At that moment, however, a wraith appeared, moving through the mountain itself, and started attacking the back of the party.

Sir Ludwig’s spell turned out to be very useful, as it slowed down the minotaur just enough to allow Ilanor to dodge his attack, after which Elnan and Ilanor got a barrage of attacks down on the minotaur, enough to allow Sir Ludwig to then finish him off, using the opening Ilanor granted him. Most of the others in the party shifted their attention to the wraith, who appeared to be very resistant to damage, and drained away Felor’s life in the meanwhile. As the frontline dealt with the ghouls and zombies however – the skeleton had already been taken down by the spellslinging earlier on – the backline managed to take down the wraith, ending the battle victorious.

As the party rounded the next corner, a new challenge immediately appeared. There, waiting on the path, were six blue dragons - though luckily not of the huge kind that could nom up an entire humanoid being at once. They still looked pretty darn scary, however, and immediately the party got ready for yet another battle. Seline immediately attempted to put at least one of them to sleep to slightly even the odds, but the dragons were clearly well rested. They took to the sky and started circling over the party, breathing down ice, freezing party members. Elnan threw a javalin but missed, and Ilanor attempted to throw a rope around one dragon to pull him to the ground, but fumbled so badly he almost tied up himself.

All hope was lost already, Munizard holding Minizard dearly, trying to protect him from the onslaught, as Sir Ludwig Commanded a dragon to land and then followed up with a devastating blow with his Laughing Longsword+1. The command even seemed to have an effect on other dragons, as more landed, and some flew away, maybe attempting to flank, or - pray it was not the case - to get even more backup. Ilanor released a flurry of attacks at one of them, unleashing his entire potential, as Elnan, Seline and Munizard joined in, finishing off this dragon and focusing on others.

After weathering a few more cold breaths and bringing in a number of warm winter coats (or at least memories of them), Elnan was the next of the party to unleash absolutely everything, roundhouse kicking a dragon to death, adding some fire just for good measure. Munizard conjured his flaming sphere - with the added benefit of keeping the party warm - as Felor casted the mighty Sanctus Currywurst, healing the entire party (it should probably be mentioned that it was suspiciously effective...). A dragon used this opportunity to almost bite him in half, however, as the battle continued. Elnan, Ilanor and Sir Ludwig continued their onslaught, slashing through the dragons, as Seline further demoralized them with her astounding mockery and Munizard made some - admittedly unsuccesful - attempts to electrocute a dragon. The dragons fell, and two mighty hits from Felor spelled the end for the last of them, as the party rejoiced with chairs, gordons, turbopokes and a tinycorn.

Oh, and they skinned some dragon scales. Who knows what they could be used for?

After a rest, they continued on, and found themselves facing four creatures, wound in linen. Mummies.

The first thing they noticed was that mummies look scary, and Ilanor in particular made that very clear (let's not go into further details there). Luckily for him, brave sir Ludwig agreed on the scary part and they ran away together.

Felor, recognizing these creatures were just some corpses who didn't yet realize they were dead, felt no such concerns, and turned it right on it's head by fearing the mummies instead, and one of them indeed broke and ran away. With that, the battle started, and Felor and Seline started flinging spells - and whatever that dolphin hammer is. Seline, being as inventive as ever, conjured a spectral hand in front of the face of one of the mummies, breaking it's projection of fear. Ilanor immediately charged back in and delivered two strong hits to one of the mummies, followed up by a few from Elnan. Munizard speared one of the mummies with a conjured ice knife just as Ilanor's nerves again got the better of him and he ran away to hide in a minor pond at the side of the road, though he did first get killed and then got resurrected again by Felor.

Meanwhile, the rest of the party dutyfully continued their barrage of attacks of vicious mockery, kung fu panda strikes, laughing longswords and more. The mummies went down one by one until Ilanor peeked out from his pond and, noticing they were about to finish off the last mummy, finally joined up again, then proceeded to claim he'd done most of the work.

However, one mummy was still missing - the one that had ran from Felor's magic. After a short discussion, they decided to chase, around the next corner. And indeed, as they advanced, they saw the mummy standing over there - hanging out with two air elementals. Seline immediately took initiative, mocking the creatures, but one of the air elementals moved close to the party and created a huge gust of wind, blowing several of them away. Again, Seline was ready, and slowed their falls as if they were feathers. Immediately, the party went on the counterattack. It soon became clear it was hard to hit an air elemental with physical weaponry, but if you just keep trying, it turned out, eventually the elemental will go down, in particular if Munizard helps out by firing five magic missiles in a row. The mummy moved forward and gave sir Ludwig some slams, but the party continued attacking wherever and however they could. Some sweeping attacks, a vow of enmity and more kung fu strikes and dolphin hammers rained down, and a takatukka was also involved somewhere. Somehow. Don't ask. Perhaps of particular mention for the remainer of the fight were some devastating blows by sir Ludwig, completely smiting the monsters. With only the air elemental still standing, Munizard sneaked in and stole the kill with some magic missiles, and all was good.

Except some people needed to change armor or clothing.
