The Woodlands pt. II ''Snakes at the inn''

Nisovin the Older and Marken were traveling back to the castle of Duke Archbald, to give him the water from the fountain of youth. They took a rest at the inn at the edge of the forrest when they saw a famillar face; Djurr, a cousin of Nisovin. He had been sent North by duke Archbald to see what was happening there, as there had been rumours about undeads.

While they were talking about the war against the undeads in the North, an unwelcome guest appeared out of the woods.

The next part is from the report by Nisovin:

''While we were talking and drinking some, I noticed something was moving out of the forrest. I looked up and saw it was Borcus Geirr, the horrific man exiled by you, Duke Archbald, ten years ago for slaughtering everyone in that inn. I informed Djurr and Marken, and told them to prepare for a fight, as it was clear Borcus wanted to have a fight with us, men of the man who exiled him.

Only then I noticed he wasn't alone; three sanguinary looking Wood snakes followed the tall man. We were surprised by this, because as you may know, Wood snakes can't be tamed acutually. We appeared them on guard, as the snakes have dangerous teeth, but it wasn't the snakes we had to fear most; one quick and mighty slash of Borcus' blade cut open the throat of Djurr. My cousin died instantly.

The snakes rushed towards his corps to fullfill their thirst for blood, forgetting about me and Marken. I managed to kill one, and so did Marken. Then Borcus tried to kill Marken, but Marken dodged his blade. Meanwhile I crushed the head of the remaining snake by stamping on it's head. The brains were all over my boots.
Borcus now was alone. He kept on fighting, but he couldn't deal with us both, and so he ran away, seriously injured, back into the woods.


We burned the dead snakes, and burried Djurr. Then we continued our way back to the castle. But we couldn't get one thing out of our minds; what is going on in the woods; first those Fampyres, which attacked in broad daylight, and now those Wood snakes which seemed to be controlled by an exile. There is something weird happening, that's for sure.''
