Alas the Day of the ceremony to welcome the new cathedral to sandpoint had come. Almost the entirety of the town was in attendance for the auspicious occasion. many speakers took the stage as a wagon full of swallow tail butterflies were released in the morning. Children laughed and chased the butterflies as the adults ate, drank and took in performances by the players of Sandpoint’s theater.
The town’s head priest takes the stage to recite the prayer of the first dreaming. He uses a thunder stone to get the crowds attention. As he clears his throat to begin the first passage a woman’s scream cuts through the air, a chorus of strange high pitched voices can be heard. The crowd parts for something low to the ground speeds by. The yelp of a dog followed by it’s collapse to the ground. Throat slit ear to ear blood pooling on the ground. The raid begins!
Throughout the battle the sound of a goblin song can be heard. The Shoanti Skald is able to identify that a troupe of goblin warchanters are aiding their comrades in the fight bolstering their confidence. he counters with a song of his own, weaving his Totem Spear in a mournful dirge.
Calous Rake Readies for battle, But as soon as he decides to stride towards the action he is lassoed by a group of goblin dog riders and taken from the battle not to be seen again.
Tim’s Cleric and Riley almost work in tandem during the battle. A goblin tries to hide under a wagon and with a powerful stroke the two-handed sword bursts through the wagon and cleaved the goblin on two. Riley follows by spending some time mending the wagon back into usable form.
Kriig and his companion Mitsu are able to dispatch a few goblins as well. With Kriig commanding Mitsu which goblin to dispatch as he finds a place to sit and observe the skirmish. A goblin runs up to Kriig and begins to mimic his actions the way a child might to annoy an adult authority figure.
Lux Cognito Wields spells and a mace to devastating efficiency dispatching goblins in his wake. One unfourtunate goblin being harried by an eagle summoned by Kriig while trying to eat the eagle gets a mouth full of mace as Lux jams it through his head in a thrusting motion.
The courtyard outside of the cathedral quiets down and the group catches their breath. Throughout the entire battle goblin madness reigns. Some goblins fill their mouths with food and stuff their pockets, they attempt deadly maneuvers jumping off roof tops only to not fall on target and break their necks. Some light fires to wagons that Riley is able to put out quickly. A few just run around screaming at the top of their little lungs. All adding to the bedlam.
Before they have a chance to move on towards another area of town to help qwell the madness. a loud shout for help is heard near the north gate. The group races over to find a man and his hound surrounded by a group of goblins lead by one mounted on a goblin dog. As the close in the leader eviscerates the hound in a gleeful cheer from the other goblins. they close in on the man as he tries to shield himself by hiding behind a rain barrel. The group quickly dispatches the goblins and surrounds the leader. Shoanti Skald focuses on the goblin dog as the rest of the group attempts to unseat the rider. It is a pitched fight. Focused and without the chaos of the earlier skirmish. it takes some time but the numbers of the group are able to grind down the defenses of the goblin rider and his dog. Tim’s Cleric finishes both in a powerful display not lost on the noble man hiding behind the rain barrel. The two-handed sword cleaves through the goblin and his mount in one final swing. bringing the skirmish to an end.
The man saved introduces himself as Aldern Foxglove and tells them he must thank them properly for saving him next time they are in the Rusty Dragon. With that he is off. The group heads toward the Goblin squash stables to check on Daviren Hosk as the group knows that goblins hate horses and that could have been a target. As they travel through town they notice most everything is mopped up. the guard leads a string of captured goblins to the garrison, some goblins are seen fleeing and flinging themselves off junker’s edge. When the group arrives to the goblin squash stables they see Daviren Hosk not only alive and well but adding some ears to his collection. Nextdoor at the rusty dragon Ameiko Kaijitsu is cleaning up the mess left by the raiders. Riley mends some of the burn damage caused when a group of the goblins tried to light the Inn on fire. The town guard inform the group that Calous Rake has been taken to the makeshift infirmary after being found next to the dock barely alive. the group visits him but there is nothing they can do but wait. After cleaning up trying to console the townsfolk, the group adjourns for the night.
