Rangers of Shadowdeep- Mountain Pass   Leave a comment

Our Heroes Link (Robert) and Gwalchmai (Phil) have been tasked with scouting out the Shadow deep. Having lit the beacon fire they have now crossed by a secret mountain pass and must descend the steep and treacherous path to reach the road below.

To each side of the treacherous path dark cave entrances lead to the homes of evil flying giant bats. To one side of the path an abandoned camp site might be worth investigating. Our heroes must reach the end of the path with their companions intact. Each turn there is a chance more bats will come out of the caves.

Heroes moving off the path or moving quickly risk falling unless they are good at climbing.

Gwalchmai quickly fires teleports down the mountain side whilst Link climbs to the side. Link plans to seal off the first cave hole and Gwalchmai seeks to investigate the camp site. Meanwhile the companions move slowly down the path.

Link soon takes out the bats on his side of the path whilst Gwalchmai uses archery to clear his side and move back onto the path having grabbed a backpack from the camp site. It would later turn out to contain valuable gems.

Gwalchmai moves the companions down the path but Link is set on making the path secure for future Rangers. Leaping from stone to stone he rushes over to each cave hole and seals it. He despatches any intercepting bats with mighty blows of his 2 handed sword.

Dark Tom assists with a fireball and rushes down hill accompanied by Steel Blaze. He joined the group after the last mission in the dark tower. He had been controlled by the dark powers having been captured and trained as a cultist with dark magical powers. Rescued and healed back in the Kingdom he has broken free of the evil influence of his former gaolers but retains his magical powers.

However Bobby the Recruit is caught in the open by two giant bats and falls over defeated.

Our heroes rush back to grab Bobby and defeat the bats. With the final hole sealed Link and Birdo come rushing down the path and take out the bats whilst Gwalchmai and the others pick up Bobby and move down the path once more.

As they leave Gwalchmai takes the opportunity to successfully draw the pass into his mapbook which will prove useful to future rangers.

Thanks to defeating many bats and closing all the cave holes our heroes amassed some good xp and some companions became stronger. Fortunately Bobby was only dazed and has come back even better and ready for the fight.
