Nereus - the Tale Begins

First Mission

The two halfings Meggi and Kath wakes up in the boat shed and walks up to the others. Esti is very silent and once Kath have taken the stearing wheel Esti falls asleep after a hard nights ride. Meggi sits on the roof as a lookout and nothing pekuliar happends untill the evning, when Meggi spots a town ahead. The boat stops at the harbor of the town “Gruk”.

Once at the harbor the adventurers spot a tiefling standing, keeping a keen eye, on the pier. The Tieflings name is Amnon, and he is supposed to bring the secret note from the, now dead, fellow on the boat. He gets a bit dissapointed when he realizes that the message is lost. By now, the six guards, led by Mr. Behan, have aproached the ship and demands to speak with the captain. The mighty warrior Xochipilli stands up, while Meggi and Kath are hiding behind him, and explains that the captain is dead. Behan puts up a fight when the adventurers refuse to follow him to the station. The fight pretty much is between Behan and eventually a guard, since most guards dont make the jump to the ship, but to fall into the water. Behan wounds Meggi with a mighty attack, making her blood spray from a nasty cut in her belly. A few moments later, the adventurers finally beat Behan. But just as Kath knocks Behan unconsius, she also pushes him overboard. The halflings Meggi and Kath paniks and jumps into the water to save him, having to cut of his armor and struggle beneth the surface, they finally get him up! The remaining guards are now unconsius or have fled the scene. The tiefling joins the party and together with the adventurers they set of with the ship, Vindmos, towards the horizon. Screams and shouts are heard from behind as Behan yells at his guards ordering them to board the ship. Only one tries, and fails.

On the ship, Meggi asks about the leaf-print she found on the metallic tube. Amnon replies with a good description of the 7-clover leaf from the house he is to recieve the letter. Meggi clearly states she havn’t seen one, and is believed. After a long time, the adventurers reaches the big capitol city. They ride to the city and Meggi is a few coins richer when they reach their destination. The master is a high ranked tiefling, who is kind enough to reward Meggi and her friends with, not getting into prison, as a reward for obtaining the letter for him. Meggi makes a mental note to kill this man. Once the paper have been read by the master he leaves the room and hell breaks loose. Meggi that been strolling around the room the entire time, is told together with the other adventurers to stand back untill the master comes back, by Amnon. meggi ignores him and inspects an expencive huge vase when Amnon is taking the matter to force and lifts Meggi up. Kicking and flailing her arms around Meggi tries to get loose from Amnon, while Kath is trying to help Meggi out, but is interupted by Xochpilli. In the turmoil Esti runs over to the parchment and reads abit of the letter. The door opens and the turmoil ends, Esti smoothly walks over to the others as if nothing happend. The master asks, or rather commands, the adventurers to leave for his homeland to help out. He leaves the room by telling the adventurers to wait for someone, that will help them with eventual needs before the traveling. He buys a new dagger for Meggi, two blades for Kath and Xochipilli got a Vicious axe, a new magic armor and a spectacular amulet.
