~-This Quest is for chosen heroes only. if you are interested in joining Heroica RPG, visit the Heroica Rules and Discussion topic.-~


The tale I am about to tell you is simply the final chapter. The final chapter of a much, much longer story... that began over 3,000 years ago.

There is a lonely, remote island in the North. 3,000 years ago, they mages who resided there were slowly dying. The harsh wintry climate allowed neither cattle or steed to survive. Thus, each day for the mages was a constant struggle against the cruel snow. The land was barren and unfarmable - there was nothing to hunt. Thus, slowly but surely, the mages died one by one in the frigid cold. The greatest evokers among the mages sought to end the misery that plagued their people. Thus, they banded together and conducted a ritual atop the highest mountain peak. By the ritual's end, they had created a new type of lifeform: a new species was born.

The Proggs.

Little did they know that their own creation would eventually doom them to an even worse fate then before. The Proggs, when their population grew large enough, rallied and enslaved their masters. The Proggs forced them to endure what they had to when they were under the mage's thrall.

3,000 years have past. And now, the invasion of Luosh... has begun.

A massive chariot stands before them, capable of fitting a dozen men - yet, oddly, only one person steps out. The moon hangs over them, the light emitting from it lighting up the scene. The horses neigh and whinny, afraid of going back to Luosh.

OoC: Stats good

Lycan for some strange reason, that not even some of the greatest Eubrician clerics can work out, is still in Lycanthropian Form. On one hand, Lycan viewed this as an advantage, however on the other hand, it reduced his subtlety.

"Johon at your service." Johon shakes the guard's hand causing Jerome to stumble.

"So we are gonna be going up against some little wormy thingies?"

"If only, Mr. Johon."

Jerome wrings out his hand after Johon had given him a deathgrip of a handshake.

"Proggs are ferocious creatures. They use every single trick imaginable to dominate their enemies - as if having razor claws, ability to tunnel, and giant spikes for tails weren't enough for the blokes. I hear some can  even fly. Do not underestimate them. One of their leaders, Rhodus, killed a hero from your organization.

This is an interspecies war, Mr. Johon."

"Sounds like the odds I like. Could you explain more about this Luosh? Is this the wintery, desolate island to the north you speak of?" Johon asks Jerome, then addresses his party.
"I'm starting to think we are gonna have to set up camp or something... I'm not getting a great feeling about this."
Johon waits for the guard to answer, then springs a few more.
"Will you be helping us in battle Jerome? You seem to know quite a bit about this challenge. Do we have any supplies? I believe we could do ok, but some back-up tools and supplies would help."

Johon then shoves Lycan, annoyed at his remark about religious discrimination.

"I know, but do you expect that we are just gonna go out there and freeze our butts off? Even though it wouldn't be used for attacking purposes, we will need a home, and I would like if it were hidden. That way if need be, we have a place to evade to."

OoC: Got a picture, but I think it's a bit too big, I'm used to just using the picture re-size feature on the old EB, but it doesn't work now.

"Remote island? Huh? When did I say that?

Luosh is only a 2 hours drive away. it's a lush, ritzy town for aristocrats. It is not a frozen wasteland."

QM Note: The remote island is simply the place of the progg's location, the island and Luosh are completely different things. Also, the opening narration wasn't meant to be IC knowledge: only a select few people know about the island.

"I've spent more time than probably any of you evading capture. When I was a boy, before I came to Eubric, I lived in the High Kingdoms. My species were hated by everyone. We had soldiers, farmers and mercenaries after us. We would hunt by night, hide by day. When we were eventually found, most of my kin were brutally massacred, even the women and children. If we want a base, I suggest a cave or a high point. Oh, And I would not reccomend pushing me again, you puny mortal, I mean human."

Jerome looks towards Punii. Apparently the two were acquaintances - thus why Punii was able to get a ride from him.

"...Are you sure you picked the right guys?"

*cough, wheeze* "Certain. I think."

QM Note: Also, none of you are supposed to know what a Progg looks like yet. That little fellow in the intro is just a baby - the boss progg of 36 is more then a story tall.

Elgar saw Johon and lycan fighting.  "We have been here for a few minutes and you are already fighting.  This is stupid to say the least, we are here to save a city not fight each other."
Turning to the quart Elgar asked
"How many men can we expect to back us up or have you lost most off them to the progs already?"

Lycan for some strange reason, that not even some of the greatest Eubrician clerics can work out, is still in Lycanthropian Form. On one hand, Lycan viewed this as an advantage, however on the other hand, it reduced his subtlety.

"So, Druid, you are the party leader. I must say I trust you more than this Evoker child."
"Thank you for your trust sir, I hope to live up to it." breathed Sylph through his spiked iron-animal-skull, modified to incorporate his newly acquired helmet, his earthy cowl concealing much of the modification. He stepped forward from behind, standing side by side his compatriots in front of the grim soldier. He turned slightly, continuing to speak to Lycan. "I've dealt with Lycanthropes before on several occasions, and I've grown to respect their kind. They are much closer to nature than the average man, dwarf or elf, and as a servant of the earth, I admire that. I know little of this Evoker of whom you speak, as I don't believe I have met him before."

His brown cape billowed in the chill wind which blew from the north. Sylph could sense the unnatural forces at work in Luoch. He listened as his party grew restless. So fast too.

"If we are staging an invasion, it can be done." stated Sylph, addressing his party. "Small numbers provide us with mobility and flexibility. A strike force can deal damage to even a massive horde, but none of that matters if we're squabbling over our personal beliefs. We are all agents of Heroica, chosen for our experience and individual skills and talents. We can debate religion however violently we want when we return to the hall with the head of the Progg leaders adorning our belts."

"I like the way you think, Druid. Our plan right now is to kill the Progg's three leaders, who happen to be princes: Rhodus, Eidolon, and Aquos. I;m pretty sure heroica has crossed swords with Rhodus before, but he went by the psuedonym Death Progg."

"Shall we head out? Looks like we are all here alive." Johon says as he fiddles with his knife.
