We're Talking Unicorns
We're talking a dozen or so unicorns, to be more or less exact.
Cinder, yeah, it's pretty tough to hide in shadows. See, it doesn't take years of practice, growing up on the mean streets of Greyhelm, all that. You just have to kill monsters. Killing golems and giants are particularly good for learning to hide in shadows. If you've ever played Pool of Radiance, you'll know that a hill giant is where it's at
for getting big xp. I mean, golems are good too, but they're a pain in the ass to fight, you need magic weapons, they've got magic powers, etc. Hill giants, just line 'em up and watch those levels start to roll.
Anyway, we're talking unicorns, not hill giants. This is C1: Against the Unicorn King, not G1: Against the Hill Giant Chief. So yeah, somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-15 unicorns.
Neigh-borhood! I love it. That's probably how one refers to a flock/pack of unicorns, a neighborhood. As in "My lord, a neighborhood
of unicorns approaches. Should I ready the trebuchets?"
So right, unicorns. 10-15, plus or minus another 1 or 2 here or there. They keep moving around, there's misty spray from the waterfall, magical shiny crystals, it's hard to keep count. Besides, unicorns all look alike.
Except... for that one bigass boss unicorn with a giant golden horn. I mean, the horn is really huge.
So maybe we are
talking giants after all. Giant golden horns that is. It's the size of a lance. Easily five feet long. And that unicorn wears a red velvet cape and a jeweled crown also! It must be ANDICORN, KING OF UNICORNS.
You're apparently Against the Unicorn King, at long last.
Those of you scouting note that it looks like the other, amphorous cloud of between 9-16 minus 1 unicorns seem to be orbiting Andicorn giving him props. Telling him what a fantastic mane he has, how much they admire his giant horn (snicker), generally sucking up to the greatest of all unicorns.
In addition, on a WI check, you notice that one unicorn isn't doing so much orbiting and sucking. He's wearing studded leather armor and has a crossbow. You'd guess he's Andicorn's bodyguard. Maybe you've heard the rumor, whispered in bars and dark alleys, that Andicorn is guarded by a fearsome Unicorn Fighter, Romeo.
Oh, and Brogg? Mike the zombie helpfully offers up his Odin the Violator totebag if you don't have a pack and need to store the torch somewhere. I mean, he'll still carry the totebag, but you can put your torch in it.
