Close To Death - My First Run In with a Trolloc

Postby tonybravo » Mon Oct 02, 2017 11:25 pm

I'm sitting here in the room of the inn... shaking.... shaking... still shaking... I can't shake the feeling. I can't forget the look of it.... I always imagined what it would look like, but when I ran into it I froze. It was hideous... it even spoke! The sound it made sent shivers down my spin.

I ran as fast as I could.... I ended up running my horse into the west gate twice forgetting that I needed to call out for the gates to open. It felt like hours had passed after calling for the gates before I was able to get in.....

As soon as the gates behind me closed, I hid. I would say where but I cannot remember. I just fled... instinct led me. Adrenaline saved me.

By the light, I was lucky this one time. I don't think I will be ever again.....



-------------
Inside the Western Gate of Caemlyn
You are just inside the West Gate of Caemlyn. You stop and stare at the sheer
magnitude of the city. Caemlyn could swallow several other cities whole
without much of a ripple. People are streaming through the gates and the city
looks crowded beyond belief. You can see high in the center of Caemlyn the
Inner City and the royal Palace. An outer road leads north and south along
the city walls, and a wide boulevard leads east into the city's heart.
[ obvious exits: N E S W ]
An oil lamp, set in a steel cage, hangs from a high wooden pole.
A gray palfrey prances skittishly nearby, being ridden by you.
A man meanders here, quietly speaking to himself.
A stout looking guard is here, walking the streets of Caemlyn.

Outside the Western Gate of Caemlyn
The massive gates of Caemlyn, capital of Andor, rise before you to the
east. The bustle and noise of the city can be heard at all hours, and
during the day long lines of people form to enter the realm of Queen
Morgase, ruler of one of the greatest cities of the known world. Drifting
off towards Whitebridge to the west, the Caemlyn Road leaves its namesake
behind, amongst the colors of the Queen's Guard.

An iron lantern hangs from the wall above the gate.

The Caemlyn Road
The Caemlyn Road overlooks the city here, though still far off to the
east. From this vantage the palace of Queen Morgase can be seen upon the
hills at the center of the city, demanding a clear view of the lands for
miles around the walls.
