A five man patrol from the local garrison lead by Lt Dark has to their dismay run into a band of five pirate ghosts and their captain Blackbane.
With some trepidation they advanced upon their spectral foes as with cackles of glee the ghosts did the same completely unimpeded by any obstacles in their path due to their incorporeal nature.
The Warcaster stepped forward and shot off an arcane bolt but it passed harmlessly through a ghostly body.
With an eerie cry the ghost swooped down upon it's attacker cutlass flashing hitting but failing to wound the Warcaster.
Lt Dark ran to the add of his Warcaster but his sword passed harmlessly through the incorporeal body of the pirate.
Another ghost drifted through a nearby crypt to attack Lt Dark but it's attack was ineffectual as was the attack made by another ghost pirate upon one of the Stormblade knights.
After another exchange of blows Lt Dark was cut down by his ghostly opponent.
With a snarl of rage the Warcaster lashed out with his blade and with a despairing cry a ghost pirate was cleaved in two to fade away into nothingness.
Another of the ghosts closed in on the Stormblade arc gunner but was destroyed for it's troubles.
Meanwhile the combat between the other Stormblade and pirate continued with the ghost pirate breaking through the Stormblades guard but having it's cutlass glance ineffectively from the knights plate armour.
Blackbane appeared from behind a monument and threw an ethereal fireball at the Warcaster. Likewise an attack from a ghost upon the Stormblade in the woods was completely ineffective.
The Warcaster cut down another ghost and then became locked into a vicious melee with Blackbane.
After a flurry of blows the Stormblade in the woods was cut down and a triumphant ghost cackled in glee.
But the Warcaster fared better and after a fierce struggle cut down Blackbanes ghost and caused the other ghosts to fade from existence leaving the patrols survivors shaken but relieved to be alive.
