Well, so far, things have gone poorly.
Duri, the "chosen one" and his three henchmen were only able to attract two heroes to aid him on this quest.
Lots of random stuff in this game. Duri and the two new heroes, Valdir the elf Thief and Caesar the Human Fighter, are the only 8th level PCs with Duri's henchmen being a 6th level Cleric, a 4th level MU and a 2nd lvl Thief.
They set out on the road with the dwarves walking, the Human riding a horse and the Elf driving a horse and cart. The dwarves were insulted when offered by the Elf to be put in back of the wagon, claiming they were not some bags of luggage to be bandied about. (especially by an Elf).
About 2 hours down the road, from the West side of the road, a group of 8 ogres attacked the party. The party prevailed with the dwarf henchmen needing only little attention from the Cleric.
They continued to travel for about 4 more hours when a group of 20 berserkers (human) came running at them from the direction of the town ahead of the party (that they are heading to to learn more from the Temple of Jormungadr).
Duri's party again won the day with some good bit of aid needed by the henchmen and chose to camp before entering town.
That night, during the Elf's watch, a pack of 15 werewolves attacked the camp. Daleen, the dwarf MU panicked and ran from the area, pursued by 6 of the werewolves.
Things did not go well for the party with everyone slain except for Duri and Caesar. They were left at low and meager hit points themselves. They now need to find another Cleric who can help them before they become werewolves themselves.
The two survivors finally made their way to an Inn just outside of town that seemed safe and they could get some much needed rest.
After a couple of good nights rest, they two convened in the main room of the Inn and conspired to find a way into the town. They had learned by generously tipping the innkeeper that the novitiates and other members of the Temple of Jormungadr in the town were all wound up about a company of dwarves coming toward the town and that the Temple Masters had sent ogres, berserkers and werewolves after the dwarves already, trying to kill them.
Not realizing these two were all that were left of the dwarves the Temple was seeking, the innkeeper was pressed into unwittingly assisting the duo into getting an Orc novitiate drunk and abducted him, tying him to a chair to interrogate him.
They dealt with the Orc in a gruesome manner, but not more gruesome than he would have treated them. and began to execute their plan to have Caesar use a polymorph-self potion and enter the temple disguised as the Orc novitiate, learn what he can and get out again.
We wait now to see where this leads Duri and Caesar.
