Redthorn planned to put down the heroes and put and end to the rebellion once and for all. Backed up by a squad of soldiers and more loathsome tar devils, the Iron Circle battled fiercely, nearly taking out Erinus. and peppering the party with flaming tar as the soldiers closed and Redthorn dealt out painful punishment with his flail.
The Knights held fast; Briar terrorized the enemy with fire and phantom beast, while Florula’s deadly crossbow bolts found mark after mark. Ryvin cleaved a bloody swath through the foot soliders, and she and Naivara Feycrown traded ringing blows with Redthorn as the cleric’s shield protected them. Erinus escaped death long enough to slow their foes’ advance, his fey magic confusing and disorienting them.
With Dar Gremath in danger, the party had to let Redthorn go for the time being. They rushed the edge of the forest to find Dar Gremath not only unharmed, but having wiped out the entire pursuing Iron Circle force. It seems his unit’s retreat was a ruse to draw the Iron Circle troops into a Woodsinger ambush.
Dar Gremath thanked the group for cutting off the Iron Circle reinforcements and for their brave deeds that day which helped turn the tide of the battle. The Harkenwolders routed the Iron Circle and sent them packing, winning a huge victory for the rebellion.
