Prisoner Escort & Ambush

“Tavern night was cut short due to a call to arms. A chain gang of prisoners was to be escorted from their holding point in Arathi, to the Undercity proper. Armed, armored, and ready for a fight we rode out to collect the prisoners from the Deathguard stationed out in Galen’s Fall by Thoradin’s Wall . The old Deathguard overseeing the prisoners received us, and then sent us along our way. The prisoners had already been stripped of valuables, armor, and weapons much to our dismay. It was as we were nearing Eastpoint Tower that we were ambushed along the road – old rivals rearing their heads in some noble show and effort to save their peers. For their effort they managed to free a few of the prisoners, and for our effort we captured two of them: both of whom are wanted to stand trial and then later run in the Great Hunt as a part of the Dance Of The Dead celebration. Not a bad trade…

More and more reports are filtering in of Alliance captives being taken. -U”

The ride out to Arathi was peaceful, and most of us were hoping for quick and easy work if only to be able to return to the tavern.

Many of the Alliance charged into our ranks, steeds slamming to break our file and try and give the escorted prisoners a chance to run.

The fighting on the road was bloody, and fast. Neither side was eager to yield. The Alliance did manage to rescue a handful of prisoners, and for all their courage ...they in turn handed us even better captives.
