As Malus, Ivanna and Jack made there way down a flight of stairs to the next level of the fortress. They were joined bu Larry, a half elven monk (path of the open hand) he came crashing through a wall and said nothing.
(The others decided that a being that could make an entrance as awesome as must certainly be aligned to there cause and he has been following them around ever since!)
They fought there way into a room where they met back up with Bltsu, Gilius and Astrea and they found a Dwarven woman on a torture rack in one of the rooms and freed her (although Astrea was quiet suspicious)
The Woman stockily built and heavily scared across her face appeared to be some sort of knight, she had bear iconography on her armour and introduced herself as Shey-lar of Torm (The same person the party had been hired to find).
Not having time for small talk the party made there way across a series of bridges (under fire from ballista no less) into the opening of what appeared to be the Throneroom of the Terragar King Morrcanne.
While the party rested Jack used his magic to assume the form of "The Great Wizard" and attempted to intimidate the King while this was happening between 30-40 Terragar arrived and began dismantleing the bridges from the other side!
Surprisingly calm at this break of royal protocol he laughed casually at Jack he told him to "surrender of die" at his side the King was guarded by a Orog Monk of some ability and his Daughter Simbel an Arcanist of some kind. And one of the bookcases in the room sled open to reveal a Stone Afflicted (Giant)
