    Default The Legend of the Gnomad...

    Hether you had been born here, or are passing through...
    This village of a few hundred is oddly quiet this twilight, the normal sounds of birds and animals that normally fills the background with noise is oddly absent.
    And as any random villager from here or the nearby hamlets villages or towns can tell you travelers and even residents have been mysteriously going missing for several months, never to be seen again.

    The most disturbing thing however is that about twice or three times a month eerie howls like a too large hound have been heard, and an oddly silvery glowing animal has been seeing in the surrounding environs. This has been happening for the past three months, and some have seemingly fled in the middle of the night on occassion.

    This is the situation you find yourselves currently in.
    Tonight is one of the nights the odd canine should appear, as though bathed in moonlight.

    The only thing anyone is truly certain of here is that it all began here.

    Kirnan sits outside the local tavern, enjoying a drink at the end of the day. The town was full of rumors about what might be in the woods, and his curiosity was piqued. The next time the pale creature showed itself, he intended to search fro tracks and follow it back to wherever it came from.

    Ones a night have fallen Lexara transforms herself into a fox. Walking around and sniffing out for clues. Lilly is flying over the village. Ashie sleeps in a cart.

    Lexara is determined to find creature rather as soon as possible. Her inacion would be putting locals in danger. Besides body of that creature maybe useful.

    ((I like how no one assumes the creature can one shot them.))
    As dusk sets in the natives begin shutting themselves in their homes or the local tavern.

    As the last of the light fades from the night (it's a new moon), an eerie light begins to shine from deep in the woods, gradually closing the distance.

    You can detect the odd scent of an unnatural animal on the faint breeze.

    The light aproaches the town and stops. It is indeed like soft moonlight, peeking through between the buildings.

    A howl suddenly echoes through the surroundings, and a loud wooden thump can be heard, followed by some scraping noises.

    Seeing the light in the woods, Kirnan gets moving. The bird rested on his shoulder for now, he intended to get closer and have a look before doing anything dangerous.

    Rhy: you feel an odd sense of peace as you get closer to the light. Though the situation is perhaps frightening, the creature is not.
    It is an overly large, muscular, silver colored wolf with a white mane. It is also the source of the light.

    As the two groups converge the wolf looks at each person individually before turning and running back into the woods. Within seconds the glow of moonlight is gone into the distance.

    Perception rolls.

    (I would have described the sensation for Green, but I cannot recall the characters' Alignments.)

    Lex and the others feel a mildly unpleasant tingling from the light emitted by the wolf.

    The building the wolf was attacking:
    The door appears amazingly undamaged, while the frame around it seems to have only minor damage. Flecks of whitewash and paint having been scraped off.
    Something was definitely off with the wolf (DC 20+ rolls), it's eyes appeared too human.

    You find all manner of tracks. Some older than others.
    Small animals passing through, larger animals sneaking through,multiple human footprints, some heavier than others ... But otherwise indistinguishable due to age...
    There is also a set of heavier far more recent prints. Canine in origin, leading up to the door where they scuffle (from attacking the door). They then run off in a slightly different direction from their arrival.

    The creature doesn't respond as it moves away, aside from a momentary glance.

    The Ranger nearby begins following its footprints.

    It is dark outside... You have starlight through wispy clouds which are barely there.

    It is a pleasant night for stargazing, if you're into that.

    The Forge is quite brilliant in the heavens. (It's a Nebula bright enough to be seen on nights with full moons, and close enough to cover an 8th of the night sky.) A mixture of blue, purple, red, gold and silver.

    There is no moon tonight though...

    As I think I stated earlier, the light has faded off into the distance.

    Though you can still follow the tracks...

    Some time later you come to a cave, which seems to have been modified into some sort of jail, with silvery bars. The light can be seen coming from deeper in the cave, though it begins to fade quickly as the sky lightens above through the trees.

    Lilly has finished Divining (because no one doing anything means skip time).
    There are many magical auras in the area.
    Several (5) weak ones, a few (3) moderate ones, a couple (2) of strong ones and a single overwhelming magical aura are within range.

    I am not including equipment oneither player so:
    3 of the weak auras are around you in the woods.
    One moderate magical aura is at the edge of your perception range past the cave, the rest are within the cave.

    You hear a loud snap as a bear trap closes on the stick, then resets itself.
    It isn't visible after it has reset itself.

    Kirnan nods and backs away, he's not going into some cave alone with resetting traps at night when some probably magical creature is inside. Daylight with proper preparations would be much better for this.

    Good news everyone! As morning was coming earlier, it has arrived.

    Scuffling noises can be heard from within the cave. And a man wearing armor with sword and shield on his back is coming out. With a bow in hand and a quiver at his hip.
