Just as Ignatius excepted, the hammer of the undead fell hard upon the small village of Latour-Maubourg. The party fought hard to defend the town from within it’s walls but the tide of undead was unstoppable. Ignatius and the party were forced to fall back, retreat into the sewers, and set the charges to destroy the entire village. It was a painful thought, destroying an entire village, but the party took pleasure knowing that many undead soldiers would meet their destruction along with Latour-Maubourg.
Sadly through the victory did not come without a heavy cost, Pomosa, a traveling monk, only in the village to visit the birthplace of Edward Keys but still volunteered to help defend. Whether it was the deathly moans or the fact that the undead had surrounded them, Pomosa snapped and charged head first into the sea of undead. He was quickly swallowed up right before the party’s eyes, once again reminding them the scope of this threat.
Warren Rodrick also lost his life while defending the eastern wall when an explosion caused by an undead goblin brought down the wall from under Warren’s feet. Warren showed great bravery under immense pressure and died a hero among men.
Reguardless of the losses, Ignatius and the party emerged from the sewer, the mourning’s sun warming their hearts. As they looked back they could see smoke billowing from the creator that once was Latour-Maubourg. But the scene was silent, no moans or growls or cries, it was almost pleasant. Ignatius knew that this moment would not last long, so he gave the party instructions on how to locate one of The Five Maces of Pelor, while he and the others would head east and try to join with the rest of the Amacorian army.
