Differences in The Wandering Inn 3.29 G
- The mountain was silent when Garen found Tremborag.
The Hobgoblin had to pass by numerous patrols of warriors who moved in grim silence,
- weapons drawn and ready for a fight.
and do whatever they needed do while marching.
- He was chewing on that and spitting out pieces of wood now and then.
Rags supposed he like to feel like he was eating even when he wasn’t.
- Rags assumed they were around somewhere.
Again Pyrite pointed and she saw they were marching separate from the Goblins.
- She frowned;
- They stopped in their wagons,
some pulling at the horse’s reigns to wake the others up.
- That was pointless in Rags’ opinion,
- But to her surprise she saw Pyrite stump over to the Humans in the snow.
He they let approach—some of the women clearly recognized him and others knew he’d freed them.
- It took Pyrite a few minutes,
- Obviously you could just use one as a weapon,
but what if it’s magical effect was emitting an aura of flame,
- or creating some kind of special effect?
Rags found a brunch being cooked up from one of the horses who’s broken an ankle in the snow.
She regretted losing such a valuable animal,
- but it did taste good.
They’d entrenched themselves a way away from the Goblins.
- They were a bit pathetic,
- She must have been captured in the attack on the town.
Rags had no idea if she was a Gold-rank adventurer,
- but she’d been attacked by the Goblin warriors who’d hit her repeatedly.
- The woman stared at her warily with the rest of the women.
Rags stopped in front of her and held out her bare hands.
The woman saw she was unarmed and released the grip on her sword hilt.
The adventurer’s head turned back to towards Rags and her face went slack as if she couldn’t quite believe what she’d heard.
- She clearly hadn’t expected Rags to agree that easily.
When the warriors reported that the most dangerous creature living nearby were a few Mothbears,
- quite able to kill any other intruders into their domain,
- Rags eventually decided to attach them to warrior groups,
which went pretty well with them.
She’d come up with the stone crossbow to provide her Goblins with an easy weapons to use both for hunting and fighting.
- It was the perfect tool for a weak Goblin tribe with limited resources,
- But making said ammunition wasn’t exactly easy,
especially since you needed a good fletcher and glue.
- Rags could use the memory of Chieftains!
She was surprised she hadn’t thought about it herself—and slightly surprised Greybeard knew about the Chieftian’s memories.
- Then again,
- And Rags sat up the next day,
- listening to the birds singing in the trees.
- All that reach!
On horseback it was capable of hitting anything with so much force that Rags doubted even Garen was capable to blocking it.
- Your only option was to dodge or take the rider out first.
Rags watched with interest as the Redfang warriors sparred and even did odd things like exercise before they ate.
- No wonder they were different from regular Goblins.
That might not be a problem if Rags had a Human army—she’d just make sure they were the best around and won’t break no matter what you sent at them,
and keep a group of archers in reserve.
- But she didn’t have Humans.
- the gloomy Rags saw that a group of ten pikes all lined up was great and pointy—but only in one direction.
- It took three or two Goblins to lift each pike,
- the Redfang warriors saw Rags had created a traditional wall of pikes,
about forty in a tight wall of Goblins.
- There were two Goblins or more to every pike out of necessity—they were so heavy only a Hob could lift them!
- rose up as the riding Redfang warriors watched.
The two or three or even four Goblins assigned to each pike hauled it up fast,
- and then lowered it towards the riders.
