    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    Alisa watched the kobolds finally get on the wagon with the thought that it was about damn time, and that she should probably be grateful to Otorin for speeding the process along. With the ogres choosing that moment to make their presence known, she naturally joined the group of individuals...

    Thanks. Been a bit busy with work and travelling lately, and that doesn't always leave me in a particularly creative mood afterwards.

    In real life, I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of being misunderstood/having to repeat myself. Here though, I figured out what you were trying to do and decided to play along with the joke in the spirit of good humour. Especially when I saw that you and other people were getting a laugh out of...

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    Alisa allowed her palm to fall from her forehead, but let out a long-suffering sigh. "That's right. Intentions is what I meant to say." This situation had to be a test of her patience from Mielikki, the paladin thought. Or perhaps a test of her patience and elocution.

    Good to know.

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    All the kobolds and members of the Wayward Wanderers - and perhaps some of the nearby ogres and rangers - would hear a loud slapping sound as the palm of Alisa's right hand made hard contact with her forehead. "I said 'malicious'! Starting with an m, not an s! An em!" she said, sounding...

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    Alisa gave Kaerri's medal an approving look when she saw that it was the real thing. Her attention was then drawn to the kobold who was apparently called Nitwit, and then to the airborne form of Otiorin. She looked back at the forest - there surely couldn't be much time left before more ogres...

    Dang. Just as long as you can make it through the next five days, I'm happy.

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    Alisa gave a grimace at the sudden display of reluctance and wariness on the part of the kobolds. She'd heard the voices of the ogres within the surrounding forest, and felt an instinctive need to get out of here before they could regroup. Though given the arguments of the and the past...

    Thanks. Assuming I still remember this when the time comes, I'll mention this in my next post.

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    "Thank you, Oreleth." replied Alisa, giving the wood-elf a smile of her own and a nod of her head, before glancing towards the Ko monk. She then turned back to Oreleth. "I was aiding the Highwind Rangers when the ogres came upon us and forced us to scatter. They can no doubt handle themselves...

    Remind me again; is Alisa likely to have heard of the Wayward Wanderers at this point in the story?

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    Alisa looked down at the Kobolds, finding herself surprisingly fond of their newfound willingness to defend her. "I think we can trust them. I mean, they did help us out with those ogres just now, right?" That was certainly one of the factors behind that logic. But there was also the young monk...

    I'm all exhausted from my COVID booster, and going to be traveling to the USA in two days for the Christmas holidays, a journey I'm not exactly looking forward to. So I think I have some idea of how you feel.

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    The familiar-sounding horns of the Highwind Rangers were a comfort to Alisa. And whoever these people were, they surely seemed to be on the paladin's side so far, if the arrows that had felled the ogre attacking her were any indication. Keeping her rapier drawn in case any more ogres arrived on...

    The latter. Let him burn up energy ;). Though being serious, I don't think it'll make much difference here.

    Chapter Seventeen: Taking the Fight to Loviatar!

    The sudden sound of lightning striking close by - alongside the ogres' screams of pain - made Alisa stumble and almost trip over as she continued to run with the hapless kobold. Looking over her shoulder once again, she saw all but one of the ogres collapsing as electricity racked their bodies...
