Chapter 5: Amazons of the Apocalypse

Realm of the Warrior Maidens of Sekhmet. Third Tier of the Great Pyramid
Lost City of Khemsa, Forgotten Kingdom of Verulia, Great Eastern Desert, the World of Hyboria
Day Two. Midmorning. 14th day of the month of Yuluk, 1279th year of the Age of Aquilonia



Image


The explorers of the Great Pyramid emerge from the revolving corridor into the hall of The Spear. They soon stand before towering stone doors adorned with Sekhmet, ancient Verulian goddess of women and war.

Image

Gronda of Zembabwei meekly complies with Kiri's request to go first. Head down, the wounded savage girl softly approaches the ominous portal alone, as Attila of Hyrkanea nocks an arrow and moves behind her.

Suddenly the titanic twin doors open!

Image


Spears bristle in the breach, and so do the fierce, armored women that wield them.


Image

Through the spare opening, at least six golden spearbearers are visible and behind them, the ceilings of a vast, torchlit chamber (23).

One lion-helmed amazon barks, "Barbarians! Send forth the women. Only the women! We shall not harm them."


Actions?!

Room 23 is not fully visible but its dimensions can be surmised.
The revolving corridor is motionless and its door are open.

Loche quietly suggests to the party that Gronda be our 'leader' for this encounter and have all of us answer to Gronda:

Wid ye kerry oot oor leader? us lads wid stravaig aboot wi'oot purpose! We ur bit men 'n' need tae follow Granda!

He hopes the rest will think this is a good idea and continue this.

Roan, Son of Rune

Already uncomfortable with Gronda leading the way, the Vanir is protective of her when the maidens of the Spear bark their commands. He does not fear these women. Perhaps they can help.
"I am Roan, Son of Rune. I too follow the way of the Spear. Can you help our...leader? She is injured beyond our means of healing."

Arthfael waits to see if he will need to call on the spirits for help making friends with one of the warrior women.

Gronda steps forward with pride, reveling in the sudden power shift. She is ready to play the part and does so with a certain glee, thinking long on her own past.

"I am forth! My name is Gronda! I am the only woman and I lead this group of barbarian dogs! We have come seeking help. And offer help in return. These men are my companions. What say you to that, sisters?"

At the part where Gronda mentions leading "dogs," Kiri raises his hand briefly, smiling, as if to say "I'm one of the dogs."

At spearpoint, Gronda says, "I am the only woman and I lead this group of barbarian dogs! We have come seeking help. And offer help in return. These men are my companions. What say you to that, sisters?"

Unmoved and unmoving, the female warriors snarl over the thicket of spears. One answers, "We say enter, sister. Alone. Leave your dogs here. For we shall suffer no man.
"No harm shall befall you,"
she repeats, ready to close the doors. "Now kindly make haste."

Garrin nods at Gronda. He knows there is no honor in senseless violence. He will not fight these women unless they attack first, or harm his companion.

Arthfael wonders again: if the warrior women suffer no men, where do little warrior women come from? He knows enough of the ways of birds and bees to know that when the sexes do not...intermingle...the species does not last long. Odd, then, that these should survive.

He waits to find out whether it will become necessary to befriend or kill these women.

Loche waits patiently. He's unsure of what gears he just set in motion.

Gronda turns back to the men and shrugs her shoulders slightly. Raising her eyebrows, she says only one word before turning again and following the women warriors through the door.

"Stay!"

Atilla abides, bow still ready. He glances over to Rune and whispers, How did they know we are Barbarians?

Roan, Son of Rune

The Vanir barbarian bristles at the tone of the spear maidens, and actually bares his teeth at Gronda's command. But, he holds his spear, hoping things work out for the best.
To Attila, Roan replies with a smirk, "They smell the musk of my groin. And they like it...even if they are too proud to admit it."

Atilla glances to Loche, then back to Roan. What did he say?

Mako:

Mako pushes way closer to the middle of the group to see what is happening.
"What's happening? Where is Gronda going?"

"I think he said he likes the smell of my groin," Roan replies, taking a step back from Loche.
