Knot 9 2.0 after losing one party member, short deliberation and preparation
Mitch thinks he can summon a Lamassu in the next battle, it is strong spell resistance, strong fortitude saves and can fly while perhaps Kern could sit on its back. Kern thinks it best for him to get to the entrance gate of the tower. The walls are stone and the gate is very well defended but it is also the best spot to cast Mage’s private sanctum which ensures no alarm can be raised the moment the knot attacks. Marit will create a path coming from the right through the mountains, taking along several men. If all goes well they should end up very close to the top of the wall leading to the tower.
The knot decides to hand out a lot of their stash to the gnolls (armour) as they have gathered a huge supply over the last few months. Several preparations are made in advance. The Oni will accompany Kern during the attack. A few orphans will try and infiltrate into the village, allies are informed about the plan of attack and Asmodeus is sent word about the upcoming battle. Two days in advance the armies meet. Combined there are a hundred warriors and 150 knightmanes (gnolls), the Oni, 10 vampires plus Jennifer (semi-vampire/ex of Mitch), 100 duergar loaded with axes and crossbows, Okkie (our gnome chaotic element) and Elise (close friend of Marit and a winter witch, former head of the 7th knot). Kratos is heading back to lead Evil Inc. The Oni will kill all people who are able to send messages (cast sending). Mitch puts a dispel magic in Marit’s breastplate. The Nessian warhounds, Agnetha and Grumblejack will join the group approaching the gate from the front.
Once the orphans have returned they bring along several rumours. One of them is about the mountain of the phoenix, a real priest of Mitra should be the one going there, including an eternal flame (that never dies). To get to the village behind the gate they would first need to cross two bridges and then spend the night in Sanctum, which has lots of guards and clerics. One of the orphans could not handle the pressure and collapses. Okkie takes care of the little one’s body and is so kind to give a finger of the kid to Agnetha as snack. When they get closer to the gate the 9th knot has to be aware it is guarded by two magical guardians that detect all evil, also known as the famous gardens of serenity. Beyond Sanctum is the Cathedral of Mitra made manifest, only devout worshippers (priests) of Mitra are allowed there.
