"I don't suppose you could help us get into town, " Garrett asked.

"'Fraid not, I don't wanna' go in there myself. I advise ya'll go back to Stormguard, but there ain't no sense marchin' days in the rain, " Terry announced.

"We're tired fer' certain, " Wilma smiled.

"Look, " Terry started and rubbed at the stubble on his chin, "I can offer ya' some rest in the barn if'n ya' don't mind the smell o' manure, but I don't want any trouble, hear?"

"T'ain't no trouble, Sir, " Seanessy cheered. "An' we can camp out back on the road if'n yas' please, but hey, since we're here, why not make the best o' it?"

"Some rest in the barn out of the rain is just fine, " Larson intervened. "We'll be gone before sunrise."

"That's fine by me, " the old man nodded. "Just don't go messin' with the cattle!"

"I grew up on a beef ranch, " Larson smiled. "I've a healthy respect for those ole' bulls."

"Well, great, " the farmer chuckled. "I'll let my kin know ya'll are out there."

"Thank you very much, Mister Terry, " Lyalla said.

"It's just Terry, " he corrected. "Ain't no mister."

After thanking Terry, shaking hands, and rounding the house for the barn, the crew gathered inside the hay laden building. The scent of manure was indeed potent, but the place was mostly dry; some holes in the roof let droplets of water pool on the ground, but they were all pleased to have a moment's rest; they had not slept for some time, and so they ate, drank, and relaxed for a few hours.

Larson and Yoris were the first to snore like pigs. The dwarves took opposite corner

celebrate, the ogre on the steps had forced its way through the busted entrance and bore down with its mighty club. Seanessy rolled between its legs, and from behind it, he delivered a powerful swing, which coupled with his inhuman strength, shattered the ogre's spine. It started to fall towards Garrett and Wilma, but they scattered and started slicing and stabbing at the charging monsters.

The clamor inevitably drew the attention of citizens, and they began spilling into the streets. Immediately, they shouted—weapons and torches already in their hands—and marched for the crew. People were in frenzy, shouting for blood.

"Get back, " Larson howled. "It's dangerous!"

He caught a massive hand to the face and was sent reeling into the mob. They held him down with their weight, and as he thrashed, he spotted Yoris twirling his blades in a deathly dance. The orcish warrior parted an ogre of its hands, allowing Garrett to run by and spill blood by way of a ghastly gash across its belly. Then, the townsfolk started stabbing with spears.
