Velendria was in the centre of the village giving orders to her rangers and as a Ozwin and Hunter made their way to her, a troll came at her from behind, but Velendria leapt into the air just in time and pulled out her daggers then landed bladed first on the trolls back.
Ozwin watched open mouthed, as the troll collapsed to the floor, “you’re good,” was all he said as they walked over to her, “so how why you need us?”
Velendria chuckled, “as skilled as we rangers are Ozwin the trolls are far stronger than any and as Hunter can tell you everyone has limits,” she said as she looked between them, “this attack is far larger than the previous ones, our orders are to evacuate the villagers.”
“You know how I feel about orders Velen?” Hunter asked looking at her, “but look around for a moment these trolls are not fighting back, they are here looking for something or someone."
Velendria simply sighed and looked around at the trolls in the village and at her rangers as they began pulling the people from their homes; she wanted to agree with Hunter but also had orders to follow.
“I have to admit you may be right but my orders are...,” said Velendria turning to look at Hunter who looked at her with folded arms and a small smile, “...but given your reputation I am sure Myra will understand."
“Hey lad take look at this...” Ozwin said who was examining the troll on the ground, Hunter and Velendria looked down and saw what Ozwin meant, the troll was wearing a bone pendant, “…I am not certain but doesn't that look like..."
“That old fool, what has he got himself into this time," Hunter said looking back at the hut, “Ozwin get that pendant back...and do it your way."
Hunter looked around at the trolls, “a village of trolls and one to find,” he said then looked at Velendria, “so that we can end this mess before too many get hurt, then we can question Faulkner.”
“Well, at least someone knows what they doing, I’ll go inform my rangers to keep their eyes open, and then I will come find you," Velendria then off into the village, she turned quickly back to him, "is good to have you back Hunter," she said smiling.
Hunter smirked and then ran off in the opposite direction to being his search of the trolls doing his best not to kill the trolls instead was simply slicing the back of the legs or hitting them with arrows on the back of their necks which stumps them as they can’t reach that part of their neck.
While they were running around the village dealing with the trolls Ozwin was trying to back into Faulkner's hut by knocking on the door.
“Faulkner we know about the pendent open the door,” Ozwin shouted as he banged hard on the door but there was no answer, “fine you can’t say, I didn’t warn you.”
Ozwin used his hammer as a battering ram at the door and sent it flying backwards off its hinges into the opposite wall, as he stepped inside he spotted Faulkner holding a dagger in one hand, whilst clutching the pendant in the other, a terrified look on his face.
