(I greatly apologize for the delay, we recently changed up my meds and I've been having difficulties trying to make posts. You can probably guess when we made the change, by when my post started cutting off.
I don't mean to leave everyone hanging, and I'm sorry for the wait. I have worked time into my schedule, starting tomorrow, that will help me get back to posting daily. Thank you for your patience.)
The crossbow bolt sails just past the head of the closest merrow; he does a double take and tries to head towards cover. The other merrow follow his lead, swimming over towards an outcropping of rocks. Rolen finally makes it back to the group; as you all sit now at the mouth of the cave. The merrow are moving in to you on the right, more lay farther away inside that metal structure; and an angry elemental lays further inside the cave behind you. There is cover in the rocks if you go to the left and the ocean is open just beyond this underwater volcano; where Quoral needs to reach to get clear of the merrow and gather help against the Merrow army as it surrounds "The City", the massive aquagnome submarine containing an entire city within. What do you do?
(I have to officially put this campaign on pause. I suddenly have to move and I'm taking the opportunity to pursue my desired dreams, scary as they may be.
Sadly that is going to pull me away from here, and I don't know when I'll be able to return. I don't want to end this thread, though I will be away for months at the minimum, so I want to pause it; at least for now.)
