"I don't think it talks." Cedar said, eyeing the dwarf woman.

"Grimleal Yormundottir. 'ah can fight," the woman ran her fingers across the blade of her axe. "and 'ah have some capabilities with magic as well. But don't 'ah I don't rely on it too much. In fact I recommend not sticking to close to me when we're in the thick of it."

Aife nodded when everyone finished introducing themselves.

"Alright, good. We'll be moving out very soon now, so make sure you have everything and make your final preparations. There is one thing I need to take care of first, but I'll be back right away and then we're off."


She turned around and walked away until she was out of earshot to let the squad talk among themselves without their commander standing over their head. Then she produced the envelope given to her by the aid and opened it.

Cedar's head tilted to one side. Amber eyes focused on the dwarven woman. "Curious" he thought. He wondered just what kind of magic Grimlea could use. She was a capable warrior that much was certain. "She said to keep your distance when in combat." He made a mental note to remember this. "Latent magic perhaps? Not incredibly uncommon but rarer in adults. I'll have to keep an eye on her. Cedar looked away before his staring was noticed.

In all his years of studying magic Cedar had learned one thing. A golden rule if you will. That magic was as varied as the plants and animals of this world of theirs. To say that his curiosity was piqued was an understatement.

"So Grimlea, just what kind of magic can you use?"

Grimlea shook her head as she turned towards the man who had begun speaking to her "Nothing terribly useful, 'ah am afraid." she said "Mostly 'ah just point my hands and things happen. Usually all it produces is a destructive bolt of some kind that can kill people. But there are times when the results are a bit more...chaotic." she half whispered the last part.

((Aife))

The letter you are handed is simple in its design, just a piece of paper folded in upon itself, what stands out to you is the seal of the captain, a bot of black wax inlaid with a thin leaf of pressed silver. Inside, you find a set of orders that read as follows:
”Sergeant Aife. Your squad has been selected to move ahead of the rest of the company, keeping a day’s travel between you and the nearest squad if able. Along the rout that your guide will take you, you will cross the routs of many scouting parties that either never reported back. Discover what happened to them if you can, secure trails and deal with indigenous dangers the best you can, and leave signs warning the squads that follow you about danger you could not handle. Good luck, forerunner.”

___________________________________________

((Everyone else))

After making sure each of you has a pack, the copper-scaled aid pulls out a pipe and stuffs a small package of crimson leaf into it, a local plant that is said to calm the lungs and possesses many of the traits of tobacco. He glances at you once in a while, but mostly seems to be waiting for someone to notice that he’s done with his job and has nothing to do. Which means he’s secretly hoping that everyone’s forgotten about him, because that’s how the army works.

Cedar waves at the smoke cloud that curls in front of his face, courtesy of the copper reborn. He moves a step away, stifling a cough. He hated that smell. Always had, always will.

Unwanted memories of being surrounded by that smell flooded his mind but he pushed them away. Now was not the time, and he would rather forget that part of his past permanently.

Aife came back to the squad and spoke to the copper-scaled aide.

"We will require several wooden boards and small planks, a hammer and a bag of nails." She turned to her squad, "I got our orders, boys and girls. We will be the first to leave and pave the way for others, investigating anything of importance along the way and leaving signs along the way. We will depart as soon as we get something to make said signs, so I hope you're all prepared."

As Aife talked with the copper reborn, giving him a list of the supplies the group would need for their journey, Cedar stared off into the distance.

He was lost in thought, amber eyes unfocused. Beneath his cloak his fingers idly traced the edges of the letter that he had yet to deliver. Pulling himself from his thoughts he surveyed his new group. No one was paying any attention to him. He wagered that no one would notice his absence for a few minutes.

Turning on his heel Cedar left the group and disappeared into the maze of tents and soldiers. The cacophony of orders being barked, runners delivering new orders, soldiers searching for their new groups gave Cedar a sense of peace. For all the complaining that he did about this place, he would indeed miss it, as well as the company and the people he had met. Weaving through the crowds he scanned for the recipient of the letter he had. A bought of loud laughter drew his attention.

There! Sitting in the middle of a group, on a crate, was a blonde haired man. Currently in the middle of telling one of his famous jokes if Cedar had to guess. "Gaeus!" He called. He approached the group.

The blond looked over at him. A bright smile appearing. "Cedar! Come to say goodbye have you?"

"As if. You aren't even worth it." Cedar bit back, voice lacking any malice. Several of the people that were gathered chuckled.

Gaeus feigned hurt. Hand clutched over his heart dramatically. "You wound me." His eyes, one green and one blue, sparkled with mirth.

Cedar tilted his head to one side, motioning for Gaeus to follow. The druid excused himself from the group and followed after Cedar. The two weaved through the tents until they found a relatively secluded spot. Nestled neatly between three tents. Cedar produced the letter and handed it over to Gaeus. The blonde cocked a fair eyebrow and looked at Cedar, puzzled.

Cedar gnawed on his lip for a minute. Gathering his words. "You know how I am. Terrible at this...emotions I mean."

Gaeus chuckled. "Yes you are. You emotionally stunted rock. Next to you a corpse looks more entertaining." Gaeus took Cedar's playful punch with a smile. Laughing at the way that Cedar's already pink cheeks deepened in colour.

"Yes well," Cedar cleared his throat, "it's a thank you, along with a few other things. But mainly a thank you. For being my best friend for these past four years." He pointed at the letter.

Gaeus rolled his eyes. "Only you would think that you had to thank someone for putting up with you. But thank you."

Cedar nodded. "I leave today. My group is the forerunner for everyone else. So I'll see you at the rendezvous." Gaeus nodded. Cedar stepped around him and began walking away.

"Try not to get yourself killed. I know danger loves to follow you."

Cedar threw a wink at his Gaeus over his shoulder before melting back into the crowds. Making his way back to his group it looked like his absence went unnoticed.

Lass'aira lets her bag down and sits on it cross-legged, facing away from the gale. Slowly a faint sound starts carrying on the wind. Her nimble fingers dance on the white ocarina she pulled from inside the cloak creating a haunting melody. Not seemingly caring for the world around her she slowly sways along the solemn tunes. To those far away she might even seem asleep but for those close enough the soft song carries the longing for one's soul before being quickly extinquished by the howling winds.

Aife glances at Lass'aira, then closes her eyes and very gently sways with the tune, quietly humming to herself.

The aid looks at Aife for a moment, takes one more draw from his pipe, and then lets out a long, mournful sigh as he hands the sergeant her pack and says, "Alright. Alright. You've got some pigment in there, though it's mostly going to be frozen when you want to use it, so you'll have to thaw it out somehow. You've got a mage. I'm sure you'll figure something out. Now let's see about that wood..." And with that, he snuffs the still-smouldering leaves in his pipe for later and goes into camp to get what she had requested.

To be fair to Cedar, he still managed to make it back to the group before the aid came around huffing and wheeling a cart full of wood of various sizes and shapes, though there are pieces that are very specifically for posts and others for actual sign boards. All of which are ties together into six neat bundles. "Here you are! One package for each of you. Just... tie it to the bottom of your packs or something." Dusting his scaled hands off, he looks to each of you and says, "And with that, I'm off! Got orders from the captain, more jobs to do, you know how it is. Good luck with your scouting and all that."

And with that, he makes his exit, and leaves you to finally begin your adventure into the great unknown.

On the road, Day one

Your first day of travel goes relatively smooth. However, despite ostensibly speaking being the front scounting party, it soon becomes rather painfully obvious that one other group is also pushing out ahead of everyone else. A cluster of torches announce this party’s approach during the night, and a disgruntled voice calls out to you, “Oi, what do you lot think you’re doing? Being over-achievers and pushing forward like this, making us march throughout the night just so’s we aren’t left behind...” There is a semi-manic glint in the eye of the human who called out, though it’s tempered by general misery much like his companions, all of which are shooting you dirty looks.

____________________________________

Day 1-7

The wasteland of the Purge lives up rather well to its name, and besides the far, far distant lines of smoke from other parties that wind behind you. Lass’aira provides as well as she can, but even her connection to nature and her skills cannot feed all of you, and each day one of you has to tap into your food stores. ((Each of you subtract 1 day’s worth of rations from your total))

____________________________________

Day 5

However, despite the monotony, there are still places that speckle and dot the wasteland with something different. One of these is a frozen, thin river that cuts along the bottom of a bluff dotted with scrubs and some incredibly brave, stubborn and somewhat sickly looking trees. Your guide had come through this way before, and knows that there are some indigenous creatures that live in this river, small crustaceans mostly, that burrow into the shoreline to wait out the winter, and you were each about to pause to forage a bit when the sound of scattering rocks and gentle growls followed by harsh barks can be heard from the other side of the brush.

((And here you go! The Roll20 map has been updated, go check it out! And Elvin is a generic Fire Emblem dancer until he SENDS ME A PICTURE ARGH))

Aife pulls out her shield and battleaxe.

"Lass'aira, scout ahead a bit without being seen and report back. Stay close enough so that we can catch up quickly. The rest of you, get ready. This land is dangerous and any unknown sound should be treated as hostile until identified."

Veritas was lost in reverie, Lass'aira's ocarina tune still fresh in her mind. It felt as is it was tugging at her heart, of a past long gone, of a life not yet lived, of a home she cannot return to. Her frown suddenly turned into a smile but before her next thought fully formulated in her mind, the noises snapped her back to reality. Her hand crossbow was already in her right hand, aiming at the bushes, eyes darting left and right. Her left hand caressed the hilt of the dagger on her belt and her legs were slightly bent, ready to sidestep or dash backwards.

Cedar turns to face the sounds emanating from the brush. Muscles tense should he need to leap out of the way. Magic surged within him, his entire being singing with the unseen currents that flowed within him. He stood patiently, ready to act or follow any more orders that Aife may call out.

((Geny, Oddball and Joonas))

As Lass'aira moves forward, the three of you hear that the sounds are coming from multiple creatures, whatever they are, and it seems to be some kind of rudimentary language as they dig through the hard-packed earth, tossing rocks about for whatever reason.

Cedar and Lass'aira can identify that there are somewhere between 7-13 separate voices, and that there is one that barks out and hisses more often than any of the others, likely indicating that there is a leader of some kind in this pack of creatures.

((Everyone))

As Lass'aira enters the brush, she sneaks forward, one step after another, and she's able to catch sight of a small handful of small, scaled and feathered creatures. A race of pygmy saurians that she's encountered before, mostly harmless, as long as you stay out of their way. The three she can see seem to be standing as sentinels, looking out at the gap between the brush lines. One of them wears hide and bears a shield of wood and stone, the other two simply bear crude spears. They seem to be at ease...

... Until something slithers out from under Lass'aira's foot, causing her to stumble forward, grab at the frozen, bare branches of the brush she is ducking in, and causing both those branches to shatter and loose shale under her feet to grind and crackle quite loudly.

Fortunately, she doesn't fall over entirely. Unfortunately, it's quite obvious that she's been spotted, as the scouts all turn towards her, and the more heavily armored one growls and barks at the others. Silence comes from the other creatures that are still hidden behind the brush.

Lass'aira backs up swiftly to Aife and shortly explains to her:
"Several small lizardfolk, lightly armed, digging, one leader."

She makes her way in front of Veritas, and brandishes her whip overhead creating a slow whistling *whiuuuu-*sound ending with a loud *CRACK*, right in front of Cedar, ready to drive away any aggressive little ones.

Cedar jumps at the crack of the whip. Regarding Lass'aira momentarily with apprehension and mistrust before shaking his head and focusing back on the impending battle. He discretely shifted away from Lass'aira.

"I'm going to bet that if we take out the leader the rest will scatter." Cedar added after Lass'aira's update.
