War of the Burning Sky 4e
Time: 40 min past the New Year
Continuing a couple blocks down the street, you see many people fleeing burning buildings and badly damaged neighbourhoods. However as you approach one side street, you notice a crowd gathered. They are all staring up at the fourth floor window of a building where a woman is crying for help. Smoke pours out of the window and you can see that most of the building is on fire.
Quickly assessing the situation, Ktock and Alara rush to the adjoining building, Torrent calls on the powers of her goddess, and pushes out a spray of water which washes over the croud and most of the building, while not putting out the fire directly, it does reduce its fervor. Both of them charge at the door, Alara completely misses the door, slamming into the post, while K’tok blasts through the door as if it were made of matchsticks. Brushing herself off, Alara quickly follows the paladin up the stairs where they arrive on the third floor, and search for a way to the roof.
Alara points out a trap door in the ceiling, which they use a chair to climb through to the roof.K’tok quickly ties a rope around the much smaller and nimbler Alara, They climb quickly onto the roof of the burning building. Alara makes her way gingerly across the roof, stepping on a soft spot and nearly falling through, She is able to catch herself in time, and receives only a mild burn on her calf from the incident. Arriving just above the woman who looks like she is ready to jump.
Alara reaches down and grabs the woman, who clings on with all her strength. Then Alara jumps. K’tok plants his feet and uses his considerable strength to swing them safely away from the building and lower them to the ground.
Once everyone is safely on the ground, and the woman is reunited with her family, Torrent suggests you all need to keep moving as you still have to make your meeting with the Gnome at the tower.
