Hahn was frustrating the attackers, using techniques like "Bend with the wind", "Flow like the river" turning their attacks on themselves..  one by one the ones attacking him fell to either their own attacks..or attacks from their own allies.  Hahn never struck a blow, letting them do all the work for him..the madder they got, the easier his task became.. and he was infuriating them by just keeping his arms behind his back, and dodging everything they threw at him.

Spotting a group of the cultists who had coordinated a win against their opponent, Orryth decided he would make any celebratory thoughts they had short-lived. Chanting a spell, he brought out both of his hands, aiming towards the group. A wave of pink energy was sent forth and Orryth frowned.

The arcane wave cast by Orryth, caused even more confusion amongst enemy ranks. they were getting pushed back with each of their own getting killed.

Domerth was too focused on fighting to observe what everyone else is doing. He was locked in combat with the cults appearant leader. He was different from the rest of his ilk somehow. the man was bald, and had small horns forming a sort of crown((darth maul like)) on his head. The eyes burned with unearthly fury. With a blow to the chest, Domerth pushed him back, giving him time to unholster one of hs pistols. Without hesitation Domerth pulled the trigger.
The shot was aimed at the cultist leader's head. It was a direct hit. The back of the head of the cultist exploded.

It had seemed that the battle was over. The remaining cultists were cut down where they stood. Few were squashed by John's mace. Many had crossbow bolts in their chests or heads.

The detachment of the Seventh Sons cheered in relief. The members of the detachment had various melee weapons as well as matchlock carbines. They were pretty well armored and wore the signature tabards of their Company, halved red and white.
A woman, the detachment's leader approached Domerth. she had vivid red hair tied into a tight braid, as well as green eyes. She was heavily bruised though, no doubt from the battle. She was not younger than Domerth.
- Your timing couldn't be more perfect. - She said. - We were nearly crushed here.
- What happened here? - Domerth asked her. her tabard was more lavish than her comrades, she must've been at least a liutenant of the company.
- Refugees came from here few days ago, told stories about the horrrors taking place here. We were sent to investigate these claims. Wen't straigth into the hellhole it seems. Oh... I'm forgetting my manners. Elsa Firemane, liutenant of the Seventh Sons.
- Domerth of House Dragonheart, leader of this expedition, future captain of the Brotherhood of the Tattered Banner- Domerth said. People from both companies began piling the corpses for cremation. Halfman was examining the corpse of the leader. He was scribbling notes in his little journal. After he was done, he emptied a pouch of salt onto the body, murmuring some incantation. When that was done, he singalled the body to be added into the pile.

- Is this the first report of cult activity in these parts, Elsa? - Domerth asked.
- No. We had a ring of doomsayers in Beryl. Also people reported a strange sightings in the ruins of Diamond. A band of Silver Gryphons went to investigate. That was three weeks ago.
- Interesting. We recently had a cult incursion of our own. A swarm of initiates tried to lay siege to Northwatch Hold, as well as ambush our expedition.
- They've recuperated it seems - The liutenant said.

Meanwhile, Halfman approached Orryth.
- That blast of arcane energy was your doing?- The tiny sorcerer asked.

"Haha! Yeah... Not what I meant for the thing to do. Was trying to freeze 'em, but ended up doing whatever that was." Orryth let out a heavy sigh, turning to face the pile of cultists.

"How in control of your spells are you, anyway?", 'Elepaio asked Orryth as she inspected herself with her mirror, "I mean what if that energy turned into a massive, unbridled, explosion, or gods prevent it, a chemical that could damage my hair."

- a miscast can lead to very dire consequences. - Halfman said, with a strict tone. - You lack focus. Tell me again, who trained you in the arcane? It is most unusual that an orc takes part in the arts of the arcane, they usually follow in their tradition of shamanism. I've met a few quite powerful ones, calling spirit beasts and the elements to their aid.
Halfman leaned on his staff for a moment.
- But no worries. If you'll follow my guidelines, we'll make a sorcerer out of you yet. One that can control the magic he wields.

"bloody hell, over already?! that wasn't even enough to get me warmed up!" she shouted at some random soldier who quickly skittered out of the way. there was nothing to do now but stumble around making a lot of noise and intimidating people. Which is exactly what she did much to everyone's dismay.

"My mother taught me in the ways of the arcane. My adoptive mother, to be exact. Some, though not all, of the Brotherhood know of the fact that my mother is human. My brother, also an orc, can cast the spells she taught him just fine. I took more work to get to where I am. I overheard some of her other students speaking aloud of how they wondered how I would have turned out if I was to have learned the ways of shamanism. Some of them sounded just curious, others fearful. I am unsure of how that would've gone myself, but I am along this path, and Mother thought joining the Brotherhood would be a good thing to help me along this path."

Orryth's fists tighted, then loosed. He mumbled something under his breath, looking to the sky. Turning, he faced Halfman.

"Your help would be most appreciated. I haven't been with the Brotherhood for a great deal of time, and I shouldn't be expecting quick results, I'm sure. Though, it is sometimes hard not to."

Hahn nods to Larkas.  "It will require some training, but we can train every evening.  It will not be an easy task, but for those of us who do not like violence.. it allows our enemies to do themselves in. Perhaps you can show and teach me a few things as well."

- "Sure thing." Larkas nods back. "You seem to be quite nimble, so I guess I could teach more about sneaking and hiding, then deliver swift attacks."

- Nothing more can be done here.- Domerth said as he lit the torch. All of these corpses had to be burned. Soon enough, the pyres were lit.
Halfman stood besides Domerth.
- I have bad news. The leader of the cultists you killed. it was a vessel for a voidspirit.
- Voidspirit? - Domerth raised his eyebrow.
- Yes. They are vile beings that dwell in the void. The cult, as well as their predecessor, the Clan Onshall, used volunteers to host such a spirit. In time, the possessed changes into a powerful voidspawn. The one we fought, was in it's early stages, not yet fully mutated.
- Are they dangerous?
- Depends on the mutation stage. Some are immensely powerful, other's, like the one you've slain are not. The voidspirits can be defeated. Permanently.
- How?
- They must be trapped within their host body. they can leave it within hours. We of the Samann are the only ones that can perform this incantation.
- So that's what you were doing with that salt. - Domerth noted. - I suggest we get moving to Beryl.

The expedition, resumed it's march to the Freehold. The Seventh Sons survivors joined them as well.
As they moved through the road alongside the forest, they could feel that someone is watching them from the woods.

Orryth wondered what was watching them out there, but knew he was no scout. He knew he was worse at scouting than he was at the art he was trained in. He twirled his pickax around in his hand, wondering what his life would have been like if he was actually brought up as a shaman. Not that he wished such a thing to happen. He loved his mother.

- The forest is Dryad teritory - Nivera said from a top one wagon.
- Aye. Don't pull anythin stupid lads!- Magnus said to the new recruits - Last thing we want is being turned into pin cushions by 'em.

- The north is too vast to have regular patrols on the roads.The companies that guard the Freeholds don't have many troops to spare on regular patrolling. - Domerth said. He paused for a moment.

- John. - He addressed the half-giant. - Is it possible that the newly resurgent cult would be launching their assaults from the ruins of Diamond?

Evening had dawned, and the expedition could see the green tiled roofs of the freehold within arms reach. vast spires towered behind the tall walls and defensice turrets surrounding the city.

- We're here at last. - Domerth said. - Let's go procure ourselves an inn for the few days, while we assess the situation in the North. Larkas, this gives you time to get in touch with those associates you mentioned. I will go later with Elsa to see what the Seventh Sons have on this whole ordeal.

Not long after, the expedition had reserved an inn in the inner city, right nearby the trade quarter, as well as the headquarters of the Free Companies that defend the city.

Domerth ate, and gave some last minute instructions to the rest, receiving a promise from Bryn that she'll not demolish the whole place, if someone had challenged her to a contest of strenght. Magnus went to work in the forge that served the Silver Gryphons, hoping to finish the fans for Hahn.

Halfman decided to wait for his colleague from Clan Samann. While he waited he sat Orryth, and began lecturing the young orc on focus techniques, that in theory at least should help the aspiring sorcerer to cast his spells with more predictability as well as efficiency.

With everyone having something to do, Domerth accompanied Elsa to the Captain of the Seventh Sons for a debriefing.
The offices of this Free Company were stationed in one of the newer houses in Beryl. The building itself was a lavish birck build deisgn, with upper floors built using the fachwerk technique.
The captain of the Seventh Sons was a weathered veteran. He wore simple noble clothes in red and white, with a symbol of the Company he's commanding. For his right arm he had a automata prosthesis, a masterpiece of the artificiers of Clan Amat.
- Elsa. - He nodded. - And this is young lord Dragonheart I presume? Your lord father had notified me earlier of your arrival. So, what's of Grovestead, Elsa? Are the rumors true?
Domerth Greeted the captain by shaking his hand. The Captain, Garet as his name was, gestured Domerth and Elsa to sit down.
- Too true ser - Elsa began speaking. - The whole village has been slaughtered in preparation to some foul ritual. If it weren't for the Tattered Banners arriving when they did, we'd be there with 'em villagers too.
- Indeed. - Doemrth added. - The force there was stronger than the one that assaulted Northwatch Hold.
- What force?- Garet seemed surprised.
- A swarm of the cult initiates. A band attacked our expedition as well, with orders to take out the veterans as well as me. - Domerth said. A page brought some drinks. Domerth took a cup of wine.
- So this is worse than we thought. Had the cult recuperated?
- Seems like it. Most likely the Ruins of Diamond is their base of operations.
- I think so as well. That freehold was always a priority for the Cult. Did you know it was briefly the capital of the Dominion, before it was left as an elven mage academy?
- Read something about it, yes. - Domerth said. - What could be so valuable under there?
- I do not know. But Samann probably do. those sorcerers know all kinds of mysteries of the arcane.
The captain of the Seventh Sons and Domerth continued to discuss the cult threat.

-"I'll do my best to find them." Larkas storms off. Knowing taverns are a source of information, even if unreliable, Larkas goes into the one of them. Since he is looking for a couple of thieves, Larkas puts on a hat and an eyepatch to make himself look more intimidating.

He walks into the tavern and goes by the bar stool.

- "Looking for a drink?" the barman asked. He was a gnome.
- "Some rakia. And make it snappy, I have a job to do." Larkas replies.
- The barman places a small glass and pours some of the drink. "What kind of job? You must be a new person around here, haven't seen you around."
- "Look, I am not for any chit-chatter. Just tell me where can I find bald man with a scar on his had, named Crimson. His red-haired wife, Clover, too."
- "I know nothing about those two." the barman becomes nervous. Larkas simply shakes his head.
- "You see *this*?" Larkas points at his eyepatch. "The person that did this ended up *donating* his organs to the bounty hunters, who fed a tribe of hungry cannibals. You don't need any further explanation, do you?"
- The barman started shaking. "I- I don't know, really! A person that m-might know would be the, uh, the Beggar. She may know more; she u-usually is at the fountain."
- Larkas leaves the table. "Now, be a grateful little man and pay this drink." He exits the tavern and goes to search for the Beggar. However, he notices someone is following him around.
