The Gem

The grootslang coiled in the ruins of its egg and hissed. Its body was thick and muscular, like a snake's, armored with red and dull golden scales and supported at one end by two legs. Each leg was as wide as Jiri, and ended in thick claws. From the heavy chest between those legs a long neck stretched, ending in a blunt, triangular head. It looked like a viper's head, with slitted yellow eyes and a wide mouth lined with fangs, but from either side of that mouth grew three sharp tusks, six in all. A forked tongue flickered out of the grootslang's mouth, tasting the air before sliding back over one of the tusks, stripping the blood and tissue from it.

The Price Paid

“There!” Akina thrust her maulaxe out, pointing to the craggy ruins on the hillside. “Told you I smelled hobgoblin stink. We’ll have our pay by morning.”

Durgan sniffed the crisp air as they emerged from the woods. “Dunno how you do it, Kina. I can’t smell a thing beyond all this pine.”

One of the other mercenaries, a shaggy-haired human with a notched lip, belted a coarse laugh. “I betcha it’s ’cause dwarves got such big sniffers, y’know?”
