Wanted : Information on the massacre at Helm Alley one week ago
November 19, 2019 at 4:54 am #118952Thomas whiteParticipant
On the day of <November 12th> a trading caravan left the town of Helm Alley. The next day the Guild provided deliveries arrived to find that every man, woman, child and other in the village had been brutally slaughtered, torn to pieces. Any information that leads to action will be well rewarded, please see your local Merchants Guild members for further details
Dusk approaches the board and reads the words on it. ” All right then.” he says, pops a match and lights a cigarette. “Time to get hunting again.”November 19, 2019 at 5:56 am #118977Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel sees Dusk at the job board and heads over to join him “you’re leaving?” she takes a moment to read the information “I want to come. Even if we can’t find any information, I can help those people.”November 19, 2019 at 7:03 am #118994Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk nods at her smiling. “All right, let’s gather some supplies and see who else might want in. Then we saddle up Biscuit and head out.”November 19, 2019 at 5:14 pm #119101Estrella NeishParticipant
“I’m sure others will want to come. We should check with the merchants guild and see what more they can tell us as well. Maybe they’ll even help with supplies” Laurel takes his hand “where to first?”November 19, 2019 at 10:54 pm #119171Thomas whiteParticipant
“First let’s see how bad it is.” He pulls out a comm device and dials the merchant guild. He Converses with them for a moment and then hangs up. ” Looks like the whole town was wiped out before they could mount much of a defense. Claws and bites, they didn’t have time to even get any weapons out really. No spirits save the children. It may be too late but body kits are a good plan.”November 20, 2019 at 12:26 am #119200Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel looks quite sad, nodding solemnly “Those poor kids- I hope we’re not too late for them. Young spirits like that never really know where to go for help. Lets get those body kits, I’d like to leave soon if we can”November 20, 2019 at 12:55 am #119209Thomas whiteParticipant
He nods, squeezing her hand. ” Okay, let’s grab who we can and get a move on.”November 20, 2019 at 5:17 am #119286KrissParticipant
A figure, a ghost, a shadow, watches from their perch in the swaying treetops. Their scope lines up with the board near the Oasis Fringe and there it remains, still, watching the discourse between two Fringers.
“Now… What’cha’ll up to this time, I wonder?”
After a few minutes, the treetop watcher raises their gaze from the scope and drinks from a leather waterskin.November 20, 2019 at 5:32 am #119291Thomas whiteParticipant
“Best we get on our way, if nothing else we can scout out what happened and then comm back for reinforcements. You get what supplies you can quickly and I will get Biscuit mounted up and ready.” he says to Laurel reluctantly releasing her hand.November 20, 2019 at 7:06 am #119316Estrella NeishParticipant
“Alright, I’ll see you soon” she pulls him in for a quick hug before hurrying away. Laurel searches for body kits as quickly as she can, making sure to tell any fringers she comes across about their mission. Once she has a few, she’ll head back towards the job board to meet up with Dusk.November 20, 2019 at 3:57 pm #119377Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk will saddle his chimera horse and pack travel gear and provisions. He will then return to the job board and prepare to leave for the village.November 20, 2019 at 8:17 pm #119386TBirdParticipant
Taking the usual “Turn three times around this tree, jump over that bridge but don’t walk on it, walk backwards for half a mile” routes that are so common in the Nexus, it will take only a half days travel to reach the former town of Helm Alley, obviously named from the large amount of smithy’s seen in the town’s main street.
Approximately 5 dozen adult bodies lie in wait for burial, discreetly wrapped in linen shrouds, and approximately a third of that number in smaller shrouds, many of which have had flowers laid upon themNovember 20, 2019 at 8:18 pm #119387TBirdParticipant
(OOG note: The directions to Helm Alley will be easily available for anyone who wants to jump in on the story)November 20, 2019 at 9:12 pm #119388TBirdParticipant
