"Well, it looks like you all have everything you're going to need. Follow me, please."
You follow the pikeman to a squat house in the corner of a field. It appears to be the only house on the Lion's lands. You see that a foundation of its walls made of stone reaches about to the height of your waist, and the rest of the walls are wattle and daub. You notice that three thick wooden supports hold up a part of the roof, which hangs over the area in front of the doorway. You see another pikeman guarding the door, a horse tied to a post to the right of the house, and, interestingly, a woman in full armor with what appears to be a greatsword strapped to her back.
As you approach the house, the woman turns to you. As you open your mouth to greet her, she abruptly speaks first.
"Indeed, these are the her-"
"I don't like heroes. They're so irresponsible. Too unsure of their ways to settle down and get a consistent job, they are so infatuated with the notion of adventure and glory that they have to wait for someone to be in distress and hire them. While they do that, they live off the funds of a higher organization. And when they do get hired, they come so un-informed. I'll bet they don't even know our history, or why they have to go on this quest."
You slowly shake your heads. With a sigh, the woman begins to tell the story of the Lion Knights.
Once, the lands of Dastan made up two nations: the Kingdom of the Lion, and the Empire of the Dragon. The Empire was the larger of the two, and its people were famed breeders of dragons. The Kingdom, in stark contrast, was composed of peasants, experts in agriculture, but not in the art of war. Through a series of border skirmishes, the dragon riders of the Empire had driven the Lions back to the arid mountains of Northern Dastan.
Magical talent was rare in the Kingdom of the Lion, so most of the peasants dismissed the work of mages as folly. But when one of the mages, striving to transform readily available Mopag Torturous Fruit into a suitable replacement for applesauce and sausages, accidentally created a beast of myth - a chimera - word got around quickly.
Raising an army, the Lion's King marched on the Empire, overcoming all resistance and finally camping his army in the plains. With the mage at his side and the chimera in the mountains, he prepared to invade the Empire's capital.
With little other choice, the Dragon's Emperor deployed the Dragon Knights - an organized force of professional soldiers - in numbers such as Imperial Dastan has never seen before or since. While dragons kept the chimera busy, the Dragon Knights punched a hole in the Lion's front lines.
As his men split the Kingdom's forces in two, the commander of the Dragon Knights, after a short duel, killed the Lion's King. Without their commander, the Lions panicked, and what was a battle turned into a slaughter.
The mage fell to a Dragon's spear and the chimera, without the support of its creator, was overcome by the flames of the dragons. The remnants of the Lion Army were rounded up and, together with the peasants who had stayed behind in the Kingdom, were exiled from Dastan. The Empire absorbed what was left of the Kingdom, and began to reorganize itself into the Empire of Dastan, ruled by a triumvirate of emperors.
"The Lions have since attempted to avoid contact with Dastan. Though we aren't sure of the state of things over there or the current public opinion of us, we have deemed it necessary to round up the rebels before they can stir up trouble. The Empire of Dastan is powerful beyond comprehension. We dare not imagine what will happen if Emperors feel threatened by the rebels and decide to pin the blame on us.
"Sir Leonard and his two best generals in inside now, finalizing our plan to find the rebels once we arrive in Dastan. Tell me: how do we know you are worthy of leading our troops?"
