Journal Entry: Knight's Test
Entry Date: 6/27/2006
When we arrived in Crownguard Keep, he was expecting us. Absently he caressed the Brightblade and demanded a duel of honor with Eric, with the rules of the Solamnic Measure. For me it was clear that Crownguard was insane, but Eric accepted nonetheless.
To add to our woes the gnomes were back, and their monstrosity was christened Knight Squisher. Fortunately for us it didn't work as expected, big surprise here. It went wild and tumbled against a support, weakening the structure of the keep.
While Eric and Crownguard fought, we had to fence the attacks from the gnomes. I was almost killed by an attack from a blonde girl, who had melted in the shadows. Her backstabbing attack almost killed me, as I barely managed to dodge it. Fortunately, for me, two could play that game and she fell, attacked from behind by Sheila. Meanwhile Forest and Zelda drove off the remaining gnomes.
During the battle Eric was faring better than I thought. I remembered an old legend about the Brightblade being used only by a worthy hand. Finally Eric disarmed Crownguard and we were able to reduce him and tie him up. We could barely escape with our lives, as the keep collapsed, but we got Crownguard and the Brightblade. Sheila tried to take a dagger, obviously magical, but couldn't hold to it.
