Lord Gazande settled into his new role as Lord of Tazir by making Mernpool his new sergeant, but running a village proved to be tiringly mundane. And then, from out of the deep desert, a young Blue Dragon came with a party of Orcs and Goblins led by Skavonek, an Anti-Paladin, and all of them intent on destroying the village.  

Villains from the deep desert.

The Goblins dumped out a bag of bones which animated into Skeletons to swell their ranks while Raz took to the air on her magic carpet, shooting arrows to draw the over-eager young wyrm off after it killed Seran. Eventually, after a protracted chase through the air, the Elf succeeded in slaying the Dragon. 

The battle of Tazir.

Supported by Rhodedendron’s songs and spells, Lord Gazande and Zeex fought side-by-side against Skavonek and his Evil company. Both sides wore each other down until it was Raz, flying back from slaying the Dragon, who killed the Anti-Paladin with one good shot that scattered the rest. 

In the aftermath, Seran and Zeex lay dead and it was reasoned that the enemy must have had some kind of link with the previous lord of Tazir. Raz flew to Omosa to report the events to Duke Alcibes while Lord Gazande started putting his village in order.
