Shocked at the brazen intrusion into Mirith's territory, a group of citizens took matters into their own hands yesterday and mounted an assault on the rock maze Lizard Fort.
Pushing deep into the rock maze we found caches of weapons and other supplies for battle. One can only guess whether their intended goal was simply to expand their territy, or attack a target nearby.
The initial assault was very near to successfully clearing a large area of the maze of Lizard Men. Whilst it was close the Lizard Men had the upper hand with fresh troops still in front of us deeper in the maze and arriving behind as constantly through the tunnel.
Great damage was done to the invading Lizard Men forces that massed in the maze by this group. We were ultimately forced to retreat after a number of members were sent, albiet temporarily, to the grey world.
Realising how close we were to dealing a perhaps fatal blow to the Lizard Mens plans we regrouped in Mirith and recruited a few more troops. Our tactics were revised based on the input of some of the more senior members of the group to minimise the risk of a similar fate meeting the new party.
With the additions to our forces and more cautious approach we were able to make steady progress through the rock maze, eradicating all of the Lizard Men that had come through the tunnel and raidind their supply caches. Once the mainland was clear we fought our way through the tunnel to stamp out any forces marshalling there.
No abnormal concentrations of Lizard Men were found near the tunnel entrance on their side. Whilst Lizard Men are still freely moving through the tunnel onto the mainland perhaps the blow we have dealt them will cause them to reconsider their intrusion. Or it may lead to them redoubling their efforts once they have regrouped, only time will tell.
Many thanks to Rosina, Pakal, Hayate, Luciella, Aleisa and Silekendor for their efforts in the assault on the fort.
