My name is Damon Swift well that’s what I’m known by the surface world my drow name is Feanar Telhunia I stand at 5ft tall weigh 95 pounds my skin is black my hair white and my Elven eyes are a deep crimson. The Drow are evil underground elves, unlike my kin I broke away and became good that’s when I found I group that I joined which consists of Kerta our leader she is a Human with dragon blood in her, Valdamor Quicktouch who is a cleric or Pelor (the sun god)and he is a Halfling, Orion who is a half angel and the adviser to Kerta, and last but not least Killer James who is a hulk of an Orc standing at 7ft tall he is a holy warrior of Pelor. We are protectors of a town called Safe Haven we are but a small light in this dark world that is ruled by warlords and barbarians many of whom want to see us dead. That’s out predicament joyful isn’t it now since I escaped the Underdark (Drow cities) I am hunted by them so I go out in to the woods regularly to make sure they aren’t here yet so as I’m walking I see an overturned wagon so I go over to investigate now I have my leather armor 2 rapiers a compound long bow with 20 arrows and 2 punch daggers . As I neared the wagon I found one man human large slash on his chest that would be his cause of death and one woman with an arrow in her chest also dead and also found children’s garb there was a small blood trail leading in to the forest upon further investigation I found that the arrow was made of drow design also had the telltale poison tip that all Drow use I know now that I have to follow them and get that kid back before they reach the Underdark or else she will be gone forever so I track the blood trail. As I tracked them I came to a cave “well this can’t be good” I said to myself as I entered the cave .While I was walking down a passageway I see I dim glow at the end of the cave ass I draw closer I find that the cave turns left when I turn what I see stuns me. It is a great dwarven metropolis only it is in ruins and there are no dwarves but the city is in complete ruins the once tall buildings toppled the streets cracked and broken “great now I have to track them through this mess.” I say to myself so I begin to track again. As I moving I hear sounds a battle and I rush in to see what is happening as I turn the corner I see a Fomorian. Fororian are grossly deformed behemoths that live in mountain caves abandoned mines, or other subterranean areas. They rarely modify their homes for comfort or convenience; they simply adapt to their surroundings. Their territories are commonly marked by the partially eaten bodies of their victims. Each Fororian has a different set of deformities, this one had a hunch back huge arms and hands he stood at 20ft tall and was using a large tree trunk with metal spikes pointing out from it, the massive beast hit the last poor human adventurer and sent him flying then it spotted me let out a great roar as it ran towards me. Ok so this is the part where the big swashbuckling hero goes and fights the monster well no I did what anybody that has 2 brain cells to rub together would do I ran like hell as I ran it was closing the distance fast I came to a large dome and hanging above the center was a large pointed light crystal I ran into a dark corner and waited it smashed through the front door and wall and ran into the center looking for me I dashed out and went for its Achilles tendon on its right foot as my rapier slashes through the tendon it swings its club but misses me and I cut the tendon on its left foot but it swings again missing me by a hair it tries to turn but falls on its hands and knees I jump back and take out my bow aim at the rusted chain holding the crystal and I fire the arrow it hits and snaps the chain the crystal falls and impales the beast. I left the dome and went to find the trail again I found it and continued tracking them as I was moving I spotted a fire up ahead and saw that it was a camp I spotted 2 Drow archers 2 fighters and the little girl I slipped into the darkness pulled my bow and shot the one archer the farthest away from the group he fell dead no one noticed then I shot the 2nd archer he fell still no one noticed I shot the first fighter he fell dead the other fighter noticed and as he turned towards me drawing his weapon I shot him in the head and he fell as I moved up to get the girl a 5th Drow stepped out she was wearing heavy mithral armor she was 5ft tall black skin white hair tied into a pony tail deep crimson eyes her name Lyn Telhunia my sister she has a shield on her left arm and a long sword in her right now when we were young my sister and I were friends and when I ran from home she tried to come with me but they caught her I tried to save her but I could not I can only assume that they put the darkness within her creating a paladin of Lolth (evil Drow god) “oh dear brother how nice to see you again, you know after you left me to die.” She said “I never meant to leave you but they got to you first I’m sorry I tried but I couldn’t help you.” I said “no matter only one of us will leave this place alive brother.” She said “this is not necessary sister let me take the girl and we both leave alive.” I said “I’m sorry brother but I can’t let you do that this is the only way.” She said “I understand sister I am deeply sorry that it had to turn out this way.” I said getting ready for battle “as am I brother.” She said as she lowered her sword ready for battle. She swung the first strike slashing me across the chest a good deep cut but I got her with my rapier getting her in the stomach a good gash and my 2nd rapier came around and slashed her chest she is wounded but not dead so am I she came at me again trying to stab me but I rolled under it and my first slash glanced off the armor on her back but my 2nd found its mark and put a nice gash on her back she turned and hit me with her shield sent me stumbling back as my guard was down she slashed me across my chest again the force of the blow sent me back and my rapiers went flying and I landed on the ground I grabbed one of my punch daggers without her knowing she came over and knelt next to me and said “brother I am sorry but this ends here I wish it didn’t have to end this way.” She said “I also wish it didn’t have to end this way I’m so sorry for this.” And at that I plunged my punch dagger into her and she fell and a dark mist escaped her body she looked up at me and in a weak voice said “I am sorry brother but thank you now I must go brother.” And with that she took her final breath and I shut her eyes and prayed that Pelor will guide her sole to him and help her. As I collected my weapons the little girl came over hugged me and said “thank you mister.” I brought her back to Safe Haven so they could treat her wounds and mine.
