Last night, I had a chance to really perfect my knockout poison and was determined to use it. The townsfolk seem to enjoy our presence and don’t ask me questions anymore, thankfully. After a minor issue with an exploding necklace this morning, we set out to track a released goblin back to his cave.
Without being certain how long the trip would last, I continued to remake the poison each hour making sure that nobody could see how I did it. It seems that Lai is afraid to apply the poison to his arrows although I assured him that dipping the arrows in it is harmless. He doesn’t seem to have trouble putting goblins to sleep anyway. Our escorts and Amben noticed that we seemed to be getting closer and we needed a scout if we wanted any kind of advantage. Unfortunately, sneaky Xavice was nowhere to be found.
When nobody had any options on how to scout ahead and surprise the goblin and bugbear group, I created a scout behind some bushes over the course of a couple of minutes and sent it ahead. It did a good job of reporting what it saw and served its purpose. I was proud of my ingenuity. We got close to the lair and prepared our attack.
I coated Lai’s arrows with knockout poison and he and I went ahead, preparing to subdue a few guards before the group got noticed. He put some to sleep, and I killed one with a single strong arrow shot to the heart. I still didn’t get to test the poison. The fight outside was over quickly, just as I created my ectoplasmic dragon. Everyone wanted to stand around and search the bodies, but I was determined to finish this fight with or without their help. I dumped poison all over the dragon’s tail and sent him into the darkness behind Malphite.
Right before I sent it in, I had another vision for a split second. This time, I took a deep breath and looked down at my body while drawing the breath… I was a silver dragon!! Upon exhalation, a wave of enemies ahead of me fell to the ground, still breathing, eyes still open.
