A human farmer is seen running into town, he looks badly hurt, and is bleeding from several wounds. He makes it to the town square before collapsing, trying to call out for someone, saying something about monsters and creatures of terror. The town guards pick him up and carry him away to get medical attention and question his reasons for entering town in such a fashion.
That was 4 days ago.
Since then, The man described horrible creatures attacking his farm, and his 2 neighbors, before perishing in his sleep during a very violent nightmare. The guards sent to validate his story have not returned, and the Rose Citadel is recruiting willing adventurers to gather information on these strange beasts to find out what they are, and offering a nice pay for the dangerous job. Those who accept the job are to be informed that if at all possible, they should avoid direct contact with the specimens.
The sign ups for forming a scouting squad are at the Rose Citadel Headquarters with officer Nelahandra, where there is a short line of adventurers from various walks of life. At the front is an odd looking Tengu with very dark blue feathers and a harpoon strapped to his back. He is writing on some parchment and passing it back and forth between himself and the recruiting officer. After a short time, the officer points to one side of the room and the tengu walks over and sits on a bench with a sign marked Squad C.
A young woman wearing a cloak walked in, her hood covering her face. At first she notices the line of adventurers but then she notices a familiar face in the tengu. Ignoring the line entirely, she walks over to Yeldrenin and waves awkwardly.
*Yeldrenin uses the small gesture he taught her meaning* "Hello, Friend." *and smiles, then points to the line and gestures as though he is writing something, then points to the recruiter at the front of the line.*
*The line moved fairly quickly, as applicants were sorted into different squads. Cathran was soon at the front facing the recruitment officer. He looks up at Cathran and asks,* "May I get your name and area of expertise ma'am?"
*The officer looks down at his list and thinks for a moment.* "Melee combat... i think squad E needs someone like you..." *Yeldrenin waves his arm when he sees the officer thinking, The officer looks over to Yeldrenin, then points at Cathran and back at Yeldrenin. Yeldrenin nods. The Officer looks back at Cathran.* "Scratch that, it seems you have been requested in squad C. Please take a seat while we finish putting the squads together and get you your mission." *He writes Cathran's name on a list under squad C.*
*Yeldrenin smiles and scoots so Cathran can have the seat on the end and not have to sit by people. when she sits he hands her some parchment and a thin board. the parchment says.* "How are you doing today? You look a bit stressed."
*The line continues at a steady pace until Lila is at the front standing in front of the recruitment officer. He looks up and smiles breifly at the beautiful elven woman before regaining his composure.* "May i have your name and area of expertise ma'am" *He says pleasantly*
*He glances down at his sheet.* "Hmm... lot of melee combatants today... lets see, I'll put you in squad C for now. please take a seat with your squad until we have your squad's mission ready." *He points over to the Tengu and Human sitting on a bench passing a piece of parchment back and forth.*
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character

Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.

Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.

Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back

Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games
Jun 30, 2016 19:05:52 GMT
shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
