Morg pondered what he was doing hiding behind a stand of trees. Such a promising start of what seemed a wonderful career. Where had it all gone wrong. He decided that it had been somewhere around the time his master had found out that Morg wasn’t interested in decadence and destruction. It was such a shame master Shen Bao had to die, poison proved quite fatal.
A loud explosion dragged Morg back to the present. Hm, he thought, the cretins had finally stopped milling about and dying and started to do something useful. At last someone had remembered they had the arrows his new employer had lent them. Perhaps something useful would come out of this after all.
The troll turned around running toward the crossbowman, or woman rather. She had missed, of course, what else could be expected. Kersten or Kristy or something as ridiculous tried another shot. Missed again, but at least the radius of the spell was big enough for her inept shot to singe the troll.
Perhaps it was Kristine, hmm, he made a mental note to ask her if she survived. Oh, he thought, a white goose. Flying away from the cave towards the base, the only one worth talking to in this group had gone ahead in the cave to explore it, had she found geese? Could there also be a goose infestation to deal with? Well it matters little as long as there is something worth while in the cave, he loved finding ancient texts and such.
Well no more time for this, he was quite bored. Ill help, he thought, so we can leave here sometime today at least. The scouting was after all done, there were still trolls in the cave.
He stepped out from his resting place and a bolt of fire tore through the air from his fingers and hit the troll square in the head.
That will help them along so we at least have some enchanted bolts left when we get back to town.
Hm town, he said to him self, have to get that academy up and running soon. So I have something to do on this god forsaken island. Perhaps i can convince more mages to come here, i sorely miss more people to talk to.
And he wandered back to town along the road created by trolls.
