After having been to Westfall, Elford decided to travel to Redridge Mountains. It was here his death count started rising exponentially to his level.
His biggest challenge to date was the confrontation with Grand Magus Doane. Before even coming face to face with this evil man, he had fought his way up into his tower – a particularly difficult ordeal as Elford easily got hurt and didn’t want dirty gnoll paw prints on his suit, so keeping a distance was crucial but not easy in such a closed environment.
Elford initiated the fight from the other side of the platform, Doane spun around and immediately started casting fireballs. Elford didn’t like the taste of his own medicine so he cast a counterspell. Doane, angry from this insulting act, ran round the edge to get closer to Elford, who fired away.
Right when Elford thought he had it in the bag, Doane summoned a ghoul, a huge monstrosity of exposed intestines and stench of the likes Elford had never seen before. He had begun getting used to putting his finer habits behind him, but now a gigantic corpse triple his height was bashing at him.
Doane proved to be a strong opponent with the perseverance more than the double of Elford, and coupled with this monster, Elford was up against something which combined had around five times more stamina, and none of them could be sheeped.
This was scandalous! Now he was forced to return and tell the Bravo Company, whom had given him the job, that he was incapable of fulfilling his task, an outcome Elford had firmly avoided when he was working in business.
