With our adventures to the West coming to a close for now I felt the need to record all that has happened. Our journey as done in two parts. Since several different horseman tribes attacked us we were forced to deal with them each separately.
Our first journey took us to the Horselords who ruled the City of Caer Zegrul. This city is ruled by a mighty chieftain woman who rides a rhinoceros which can shoot flames into battle. We were met by several thousand soldiers at the entrance to the city. When we spoke of our desire to speak with the rulers about our grievances we were led through the city to a large wall and what we though was a palace gate. As we entered the doors behind us closed the the escorts scambled on their mounts away behind gates in the walls that quickly shut. then walls separating all of us came from the ground. We were trapped in a coliseum.
After a brief announcement of how we would meet our demises for their entertainment doors rose and each of us were faced with a dozen of the horsemen on mounts that attacked us. Sadly for them they were all each defeated by us in less than a minute. Wounded and dismounted fleeing from the door they came from.
The second challenge after sneering remarks from the announcer came out to fight each of us. This challenge was significantly worse. I faced an ox dragon. Khorvax faced a Tyrant Lizard, and Rycathus and snowflake were challenged by a manticore. While each of our battles were brutal and tests of our ability each of us managed to slay our opponents. I decapitated my opponent, Rycathus and snowflake dismembered and slaughtered the manticore, and Khorvax did the most remarkable of fights and with strength alone shattered the jaw and took the head of the tyrant lizard himself. The crowd went nuts no longer were just jeers being said.
The final challenge was then announced for us. The partitions keeping us apart feel and the largest doors oin the wall swung open. What stepped for was something we could not have anticipated. A chimera from the deep wyld stepped forth. A lion, dragon and goat heads all roared as its body over 10 meters long stepped forth against us. What happened after this was an epic battle as all of us deployed are strongest attacks and weapons abilities against this monstrosity. All of us received wounds as we gave them. In the end with a mighty shout Khorvax nearly bisected the chimera with a blow from Volcano Cutter and dealt the mortal blow. The arena was quiet for a good 30 seconds as no one could believe what they just witnessed. Suddenly as if a spell had ended an eruption of cheers are screams all around us happened. The crowd went berserk
