Dawn OOC Posted March 31, 2015 Share Posted March 31, 2015 The seven adventurers had received their first summons by their commanding officer, General Saka Whu. The slim Othinan woman bore heavy scars from her days in the Imperial artillery. Sheâ€™d come up through the cannoneer ranks in the early days, when they were still developing the procedures for handling the dangerous weapons. â€œYou are all special forces under my direct command,â€ she said briskly, turning to the massive table in the middle of her tent. â€œThe goblins tribes near the border near that weâ€™re coming; even they should be able to recognize what the amassing of troops along the border means. They have been grouping up together, as goblins do when faced with invaders. â€œHowever, the other way they prepare for invasion is to sacrifice to whatever god theyâ€™re currently worshipping.â€ Gen. Whu gestured for them to join her at the map on the table. On it, the isthmus they were currently on was clear, as was the Wall. The details south of the goblinâ€™s lines werenâ€™t as detailed. â€œSomewhere here,â€ she tapped an area about thirty miles south and west of the Wall, â€œis an old, desecrated temple to Thultok, a dead Ultgar god. He was the god of peace and was killed during the Gods War. This temple was his tomb; itâ€™s at the bottom of a steep ravine and was considered nearly unreachable without being a Hero of Old. â€œThe goblins gained access to it after a landslide and dedicated it to their god of war, according to a paid informant.â€ Whu smirked. â€œYes, the goblins have traitors among themselves much as Iâ€™m sure we do. The mission is for you guys to follow the traitor to the temple and gain the inside. Free any human prisoners you find, kill any leadership, secular or religious, loot the premises, and leave. Religious texts, such as they might be, are to be brought to us for study but any valuables you find are yours, as per your contract. â€œAnd if your â€˜guideâ€™ betrays you, feel free to put her down.â€ Iâ€™ll post after three PC posts. Feel free to ask questions and make interjections. The scene will not move on until every active PC has posted. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
