We all packed into Nicolette's undersized car and headed for Roarhaven. We'd planned to battle our way through the remnants to the Roarhaven sanctuary where there was most likely be a stronghold formed by the sorcerers who'd heard about the crisis and barricaded themselves in the Annex,a room build for siege situations that had years worth of imperishable food and was the most protected room in the sanctuary. It could only be opened from the inside which was the main problem. 'We'll worry about that when it comes', I reassured myself
I was practicing keeping electricity on my finger tips when the car was flung off the road and landed upside down in a field. Ouch!!!. I seemed to be the only one who was hurt as everyone else sprang out of the car, ready for a fight but no one was visible at the other side of the road.
Dragona and Nicolette conjured flames and I let a ball of lightning grow in my hands illuminating as much ground as possible. Skylara became a fearsome wolf and Florence drew her swords and let shadows curl around them, sharp against the light.
Behind us came a cackle as a circle of flames erupted around us.'Its a trap', shouted Nicolette battling to keep the flames at bay alongside Dragona but without much success.Skylara became and eagle and soared up high examined the problem and dived down transforming as she did so.
'We're surrounded by about 20 sorcerers', she spluttered, having inhaled a lungful of smoke.'The entire population must be infected'
I concentrate as much power as I could and shouted 'Duck!!' and span as a beam of lightning shot out of me.I fell to my knees with the effort but it penetrated the flames, stunning the mages outside giving everyone a chance to extinguish the flames and attack. Behind the ELEMENTAL sorcerers there were around 50 possessed ADEPTS ready to fight. Too many for 5 sorcerers no matter how strong.
'RUN!!!' shouted Florence for once losing her cool. That was an indicator of how dire the situation was .
So we ran.
