Again, we were too late. The castle had been damaged beyond all belief. The Monster army had moved on. We needed help, so I asked Zelen to make the Reptile Roar. Man, that's loud!!!
As far as the eye can see, monsters, witches and even a giant. Thank goodness we sent for help.
As Zelen and I reached the site to begin the battle, Arahorn had already begun his attack.
The army of monsters never had a chance as Gandalf made it just in time (not too early, not too late exactly when he means to.) Blyanna shot fire to defeat the catapults. We even had a Phoenix, Pierra. Zelen could only shoot flames from his butt.
As the smoke cleared and the flames subsided, the ones not dispatched fled. We questioned the last witch left and began to unravel the plot to destablize our quiet region.
Fortunately for the Shire, we will always have Zelen the Mediocre and his pals watching over things.
