Evander Smith – Déjà vu Part the Sixth

The travelers ate breakfast, broke camp and began the long walk back to Joachim and the camp. They made good time, as they got back to camp in three days instead of four. During that time Rothus experimented with the bracers and the amulets. When more then sixty feet away the amulet stopped glowing, and as one got closer the amulet glowed brighter and brighter until it was as bright as a torch. A good bag of leather could shield the light no matter how bright the amulet.

Travis had been guiding the group back to camp with Evander in front in case there was any trouble. As they're walking through the last bit of forest Evander hears the sound of metal hitting metal, and explosions. Evander holds up a hand telling the others to stop.

“What is it?” asked Rothus.

“I think there’s fighting ahead,” said Evander.

“I don’t hear anything,” said Rothus.

“Ro, Travis scout ahead to see what’s happening,” said Evander.

Rothus disappears into the forest, Travis just walks to the edge of the forest to see what’s happening.

“Guys get up here now,” said Rothus urgently.

Evander and the others quickly go to the edge of the forest to see what’s happening. They see Dalton and Roran fighting to the death. Each bears numerous wounds yet they continue to clash. After on particulary brutal exchange of blows Dalton kicks Roran and sends him flying.

Roran picks himself up off the ground. “YOU FILTHY TRAITOR!” Roran bellows charging back into the fight.

“We have to do something,” said Lilith.

“What can we do?” asked Evander watching the fight. The field is a maelstrom of steel and arcane energy.

“I don’t know, something. We have to stop them!” said Lilith becoming frantic.

“I’m sorry, but there’s no way to get close with out getting killed,” said Evander solemnly.
