|Travellers on the Northern Road stop to cover their eyes as burst of light explodes from the ground leaving a circle of swirling magic. A number of figures emerge from the light, a hint of sulphur following in their wake.
The companions walk wearily into the inn, their armour and clothing showing the signs of sustained battle. Settling at a corner table a conversation can be heard.
"Hell hath lived up to its reputation."
"Aye and worse yet the fiends of the lower levels have already
reclaimed the land's we purged and are carving out new strongholds."
"All the way to the fifth level only to be turned back" says one of the companions with regret.
"We must return even if it means starting from the very first gate."
All four nod glumly but with resolve.
"We should regain our strength and search for new allies." One of the group suggests waving over a waitress.
An elf stands, his once shining red and black armour now covered with grime and the dried blood of enemies.
"I'll go see who I can find in town, maybe some old friends will be nearby." Without another word the warrior turns and heads off into town.
