From the journal of Perion de la Foret
I think I went a little bit overboard defending myself at the Talon camp. I’ve ended up in charge of bigger battle than the one from six months ago where Perion Lud died, just before Perion de la Foret walked into the world. I kinda wish I’d picked a tougher-sounding name. Advero Brial said Amalie was coming to the Talon camp, but I don’t think she’s going to swing into the battle to save me this time.
I’ve got powerful allies this time, and we’ve got a plan. Torrin is with me, along with his brother Gesh, the Talon’s second in command Salavar Dag, and about 40 Talon soldiers. The rest are sneaking in the back door. We tried to build a trebuchet, but received the signal to attack before we could complete it- every time, our most powerful ally, Salavar, broke the arm when we were putting it together. Our attempts at setting up didn’t exactly fill the army with confidence in their leader, but our haste was rewarded- the tieflings aren’t well prepared either.
They had two manned scorpions on the roof, and two men with wands beside them. One of the battlements on the roof is ruined, and both the men have ducked for cover. After we closed distance and broke the it, the door flung open and some flaming armor charged out at me and some men I selected as my vanguard, and the Talon soldiers proved themselves. They had their spears ready, and broke half of them before they could get close enough to do any harm. An ogre charged out the door and killed one of them, but Torrin is on him, and it looks like Salavar is making for him. It seems like we have the field controlled, but something more is coming out the door
