Reaching up, a robust Halfling grasps a pine branch above his head and slowly pulls himself upward.
Partly tied to the Druid Halfling's backpack, a wolf whines in disapproval at being trundled up, its paws dangling in mid air.
Clad in buckskin, Bruce hushes the wolf with a "Shhh, Ace, shhh..."
Struggling for a second, but finding the rope firmly holding fast, Ace, the wolf, relaxes.
Bampth - the sound of teleporting is heard beneath the pine tree - Bampth - it moves onward.
Bruce, pauses in his climbing, scratching his sandy hair with a puzzled expression,
"What is a full fledged Devil Squadron Patrol doing here?"
Bampth - the sound of teleporting is heard to the south.
A crow in a nearby tree squawks at the intruders, angered by the Devil's presence.
A pinecone drops from further above as if a squirrel is echoing the sentiments of the forest.
"I wish I knew a herd of Treants to call upon.", murmurs Bruce in a whisper.
Ace, the wolf companion, licks the back of Bruce's neck as if in agreement.
Heavy footsteps and the clang of metal is heard marching away...
