As the Chosen group followed the Alliance soldiers it was only a few hours until the group could see the great bridge. In terms of structural achievements, the Nexus now destroyed in Akkonan, the great city of Felthwie made by the High Elves, were the only man-made structures that surpassed the Karanaic Bridge. The divide that was carved by the Serpent River went down for miles. Some even said that Rallos Zek’s blade caused the mighty Rathe Mountains and miles of downward land that great bridge spanned.
Before each entrance on the bridge had been built fortresses that guarded this only way to transvers from the plains to the Rathe Mountains for hundreds of miles north and south. To any that had seen the bridge knew that this structure could allow an entire army to pass, being nearly half a mile wide. Runes have been carved into every stone, every pylon, and every chain that pieced this structure together.
As they approached within three hundred feet of the fortress that lead to the bridge Geoff stepped forward, “One moment..” He then muttered a small prayer in alight voice (Listen DC 17) and then placed his hand to a stone that before him. As he channeled positive energy into the stone a few lines sprouted out in a glowing like that leade to a few other stones. The result was a massive release of positive energy that lit up the ground bright enough to act as a temporary sun.
“A small defensive shield..” Ork said while grinning.
