Fury of the Madman

“Grigor, shall I take you upstairs? Ashira here can get you a bite to eat and drink while we extricate your son. I don’t know if the contraption can take us all upstairs at once.” Saeth took the father towards the boxy device that would take them back up to the castle proper. She looked across at the humans. “Don’t go too far before I get back, get yourselves eaten by another tentacle monster or somesuch.”

Maruc awaited Dieter’s response about being freed, he was particularly interested in his reaction to his father. How he recognised or reacted to him will reveal much about his state of mind. Perhaps the old woman at the village may be a better choice to heal him than dragging him to Specularum where he was not known or cared about.

Feldard set his axe just outside the doorway and entered after Nicolai prepared to physically restrain the unhinged man. While part of the dwarf felt pity for the man being so abused by the darkmage, he wondered how much of Dieter’s mind remained after the mages dark deeds. Perhaps it would be kinder and safer for the party to just to put him out of his misery. Ah.. but with the father looking on that would not go over so well so the dwarf kept his thoughts to himself.

Once he and Feldard were in position, they appoached Dieter to remove the shackles from his arms, whilst also prepared to restrain him if necessary.

As they approached, the chained man suddenly came at them with the fury of a caged animal.

  1. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth sure does ride this elevator a lot. Do you want to note when she makes it back down, or should I just make up a time, as it seems appropriate?

  2. I’ll let you decide when she comes back, or even if she made it to the elevator at all.

  3. Miklos (Mu 3)

    With half his mind on his sleep spell anyway Miklos will release it at the young man in order to reduce the chance of him harming himself or others. However if there is no line of sight he will await an opportune moment.

  4. Maruc (Clr 4)

    The priest leaped backward although half expecting something surprising the fury of his assault nevertheless shocked him. No this man might well need professional assistance in Specularum. Preferably at his church, the Abbot seemed a wise and trustworthy fellow.

  5. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    The rage and fury behind the son’s attack did not surprise the dwarf. He had expected it, thus his reason for leaving the axe behind. Too tempting to fell the man permanently with it. So instead the dwarf met the mans charge with one of his own and moved to sink a fist into Dieters abdomen – knock the wind out of him – bring him down quick.

  6. Nicolai (T4)

    Nicolai jumps away as Dieter moves forward. He then tries to move behind him and restrain him from behind. If necessary Nicolai will attempt to knock Dieter out by using the hilt of his sword.
