It was three days since Jules left Sir Kejtar's keep. Chasing down stories and clues led her to an old abandoned keep. She didn't even remember about its existence until she came nearly upon it. When she reached the keep she expected to see the ruins but to her surprise she came upon a fully restored gate and guards standing in front of it.
Even though she came upon a superior force she did not hesitate to approach. As she walked up with her two companions swords in hand the guards did not move. The seven sentries did not move. She called out to their apparent leader but he did not respond.
It was a true standoff. Jules took the scene in and got even more worried. The ruins were flying Lenfel colors but the sentries were definately not Lenfel.
And then it got dark and cold as though something dark just woke up.
That was it - Jules decided it's time to make a strategic withdrawal and observe - there is always a tomorrow.
