Not so long ago, the heroes of Heroica's fourth quest were employed by the Shadeaux to investigate raids on the latter's trading caravans.
Battling beasts and assassins alike, they fought their way across Uland.
In R'kilf, they met elves who shared their suspicion of the newcomers, the Lion Knights.
But in the elves' home of Brobric, the true nature of the elves was revealed.
Thus, concluding an investigation of a Lion Knight camp, the heroes traveled to Bric'Lin where, in the midst of discussion between the Lion Knights, Brobric Elves, and Hinckwells, they assassinated elven Lords Keveak and Ricroar.
The Quest was successful, but the heroes found out that the entire conflict had been engineered by their employers, the Shadeaux, to provoke a war that the power-hungry house could benefit from. Now, the allies of the Lion Knights, the Hinckwells, striving to save their holdings in northern Uland, have called for their own team of heroes to hold a key position, the Bric'Bay Fort, as it is about to come under attack from the bulk of the elven force...
Answering the summons of Commodore Largus, you inquire as to his location, and a trader directs you to one of the Hinckwell's trading ships. You find the commodore in the cargo hold, inspecting the ship. Looking around, you see the seven other heroes of Heroica who will be joining you on the Quest. They are:

"Ah, excellent! Good day, heroes. I'm pleased to see you've answered the call to assist a weak, peaceful people in their attempt to defend themselves against the evil that is the Brobric Elves. Even now, a carriage awaits outside to transport us to Bric'Bay Fort, where a small force of Lion Knights prepares to attempt to hold their position against the elven armies.
"The carriage will take us straight to the fort in naught but a day's time, and we need not worry about being attacked on Eubric Highway. We will not be stopping in Bric'Lin, though you will go through it. When we arrive, I will introduce you to the commander, Sir Lawrence. My men and I would stay with you, despite the fact that we have little experience with land battles, but this trading fleet sets sail in three days, and we must sail with it. Are there any questions?"
