6th of Rhaan
Thrash had a vision of getting shot in the back by Torion and gaining some sort of special power. The party wakes in the morning and as they pack up camp they spot a raging black dragon flying over the town and shooting flaming acid streams at buildings. It swoops in close to the party as they take shelter, and then shrieks out "The Shard!". Thrash having the vision fresh in his mind hands Torion his bow and says "Hey, could you do me a favor and shoot me in the back with this?" Torion obliged him even though this was hardly the time for something as ridiculous as this request was and shot him in the back wounding him with the bow. The bow began to glow for a moment and the carved patterns on the bow inexplicably began to change when Thrash picked it up again.
The dragon proceeds to claw at the building and then chase the fleeing members of the party through the alleyways, leaping from rooftop to rooftop filling the alleys with it's napalm breath. It corners Centerleft and Todd in a building but then unexpectadly crashes through the weakened roof, Todd takes some damage from the falling debris but then has enough wits left in him to cast Searing Light directly into the left eye of the dragon, half-blinding it, and then wrenches the dragons divination crystal from it's head before Centerleft pulls him out the window. As the two hit the ground on the other side of the wall they narrowly avoid getting sprayed with the napalm breath, then begin running down the alley as Tarius fills it with a wall of smoke to cover their retreat. Luckily the bluff succeeded and the dragon ran in the opposite direction. Todd and Centerleft run full tilt through the alley until they come face to face with a group of Warforged Scout Archers and their apparent leader, Cadence, the warforged bard. She bids the two to come with them and then they run east, sending a message to the remainder of the party to regroup on the east edge of town.
