Two days after Salenda Athysh’s platoon finished cleaning out the Zhul-Mar outpost, her men were relieved by the new outpost commander, Captain Zilas. He arrived with an entire Tzezan of men of his own to garrison there and make preparations for another division of troops that were on the way.
In the mean time, Salenda and her own troops were granted time in the city of Khaj-Mari to train and relax.
Salenda trained in fighter and then in cleric, and just as she was finishing up her training week at the Temple of Chthallg in Khaj-Mari, an ogre slave went feral in the city street, and she was able to singlehandedly slay him on the steps of the temple before any harm could be done.
She and her men enjoyed some time off, but it was cut short when she received a message from her own Tzezan Commander Graf T’zaad to return to Zhul-Mar immediately, as the newly obtained outpost was under attack, and it looked like a full scale invasion!
