Lieutenant Aka Miki
27th of Raining leaves
1rst of raining leaves in the year 3125. I know I requested some help in Kal’montak, but I wasn’t sure about whom they sent me. The sorcerer seemed a bit meek, and the alchemist an amiture. Though the thief seemed fair enough… at least she seemed to try. It doesn’t help that they all tried to get a look at what was going on in the pit and got caught. Well uram my orc seemed to take a liking to them, so they have something worth seeing. He may not be the smartest, but he knows who makes a good recruit and who does not. I decided to give them a chance, so I led them back to Hq. I gave them a simple mission; Simple, but important. The mission was this; to meet with a group of allies that were transporting a weapons cash for us. They were to meet them near the border of the northern gathers a city called Harag. They had a long journey ahead of them.
On the 4th of raining leaves they discovered they were being followed. They began to move quicker, and began to succumb to exhaustion. On the 7th of raining leaves they ran into an ambush. They were expected; though no one was supposed to know about this. The traitor must be someone high in the ranks. After defeating the ratsin and the kal soldiers they rushed to the meeting place. Instead of our allies they found bodies, and what looked like cart tracks. They tried to track them, but lost sight of the tracks after a few days. With defeat in their hearts they headed back to Hq.
Little did they know that while they were gone the Kal attacked in droves. They came in waves and broke through the defenses of Hq as well as killed 80% of the unchained in the city. Needless to say I was not pleased. I might have tore them a new one. Krista reminded me that the area was probably not safe. Of course, she was right so we moved. We had to move to a secondary location unfortunately that was a root cellar in the backyard of a noble’s house. To keep his cover he told us we were not aloud in the house unless to use the washroom. Even then we had to go through the back entrance. It sucked, but it was a place to rest our tired heads. Once there Karma, Krista, and nixie went to wash up.
On the 8th of raining leaves Zireez one of my many eyes in the city came scampering in looking distraught. My goblinesh is rusty so it was hard to understand what he was saying. I only managed to catch a few key things. One was that a cauldron was possibly being formed. The second is that this may be flames answer to vionars return. The third is that the ritual was being performed somewhere between Grora, Kal’Arnor, Kal’Grondor, and Vorz. Uram translated for the rest of the group. Karma’s face went white as soon as she heard. They were ready to leave immediately, but I told them to wait and meet at the gate in an hour. I was hoping maybe I could find someone crazy enough to help them. Unfortunately no one in Kal’Montak that was left had any balls. I would have to get help from elsewhere, but there was no time for that. Zeak made the call to go on with the mission even if it meant they were alone in it. I told both Krista and Zeak to do anything regardless of the cost to stop the Kal.
They began traveling by night and sleeping during the day. Raiding small towns and villages on their way. This continued until in a dusty little house they found armour strown about and a trunk with no dust on them. Nixie opened the trunk to find a pair of fresh avakar wings. Zeak remembered that the Kal proudly display avakar wings, they never hide them. With this information Zeak orders for 6 on 6 off to get there as fast as possible.on the 13th of raining leaves the scouts came across an ambush, but were unseen. When they reported back Zeak determined that the other path they could take would set them back a few days.l with speed in mind Krista protested further delays, so Zeak Ordered to go in and surprise the enemy. After successfully defeating the enemy they moved on to find the ritual site. Krista could sense it from miles away.
On the 15th of raining leaves they found the site just north of Vorz; When the scouts returned they spoke of a hoard of childer. Zeak ordered for swift action and they charged. Upon arrival what they found was horrific. A lake of blood, hoards of enemies, and one giant alter. It was something out of a nightmare apparently. I don’t know though they haven’t seen my nightmares. Krista and Uram teleported to the altar and the sorcerer began to unleash hell upon Ceynara’s alter; while Uram began to swat any whom survived the hellstrom of purple energy. While Nixie, Karma, and Zeak did what they could to stop the 4 minitors and the swarm of ratzin. After the altar finally came apart and Krista whom had began to burn away from the energy she was channeling, died for a bit on the alter. Karma immediately began to pour healing potions down her throat. Though I will never know how it worked, but it did. Krista sputtered to life; though she was forever changed. I wonder what happened when she died. Once they checked themselves for injuries and dealt with them Zeak ordered them home.
They arrived back in Kal’Montak on the 22end of raining leaves. They were exhausted and and drenched in blood. I gave them time to rest and clean up. I had been spending my time trying to hunt down the traitor. I felt maybe If I could find whoever they were, maybe I could stop something like this from happening again. Unfortunately none of my sources knew who the traitor was, or they feared for their life too much. Either way I needed help; I had very few people I could trust anymore, so I had to use what I had.
On the 26th of raining leaves I gave them a mission to find the traitor. I would be going with them, but watching from the shadows. I wasn’t even supposed to be in the Kal empire anymore. Following from the shadows I watched as Zeak ordered Nixie and Uram to scout a head. They came across a friend of Uram’s who told them that the noble Sir Ryker had been keeping trophies again. Though he didn’t want anyone to know they got the information from him. Heading toward sir Ryker’s house they came across a few slaves chained together and being led into the pit. I couldn’t believe it was already time for another festival. In rage Uram began to trying to get Zeak to allow a rescue mission. Zeak made the call to allow it to happen. Once they began their rescue they immediately regretted it. Inside the pit there was a massive demon engulfed in flames. Desperately they try to take the demon down, but can’t seem to deal any damage. After a few painful moments of watching them try so hard I slid into the pit and tried to help, but to no avail. This thing was a wall. I couldn’t even touch it. With this information I called a retreat. Thankfully by this point Uram had managed to free the slaves from their chains.
Once safe again we continued our trek to Sir Ryker’s house. Once inside we saw something we probably weren’t supposed to. He had a dwarven unchained held down to the ground and was in the process of raising his war hammer to come down on her head. She was already battered and the hallway was a mess. Obviously there was a struggle and the dwarf was on the losing end. Uram charged the noble and knocked him off the dwarf. Once the dwarf was free from Ryker she ran to safety. Zeak began to threaten the noble until he wet himself and began to cry. He admitted to being the one to feed information to the empire. At that Uram killed him after looking at me to make sure I would let him. At this point I did not care as long as we knew whom he told. It didn’t even take two seconds for him to tell that he told one person and he was still in the house somewhere. With that Uram tore him apart bit by bit. I’m not gonna lie I kinda felt sorry for him. Leaving the gruesome scene Nixie went upstairs to the top of the stairs where a room was. She heard pacing from inside. Nixie waited for a few seconds until a Kal soldier stepped out of the door and looked shocked to see nixie. Nixie didn’t give him a chance to react before she struck him down with one well placed slash with her dagger. Just like that he fell to the ground bleeding out. I gave her a greater healing potion to dump down his throat after tying him up. Zeak and Uram found a room full of war trophies.goblin skulls, weapons including black iron, and at the front a pair of bleeding wings. I could see why Uram’s friend was suspicious of this guy.
After dragging the prisoner to the Hq I told Zeak, Krista, and Nixie to interrogate them as I tend to kill someone rather than asking questions. Zeak and Krista decided that if interogation didn’t work they would torture him; not that I have an issue with that but Nixie and Uram might. After Nixie and Uram asked their questions and tried to intimidate him Krista began casting spells at him in attempt to scare the life out of him. Once they determined that normal means would not work Krista hoisted him up and began to build hellfire onto her hand against his throat. He cried and began to beg for his life. He told her that only one person knew of where Hq was relocated to and it was a kal battle leader by the name of Corin. At that note I left to get him
I was beginning to get impatient. Once back
27th of Raining leaves
I regret to inform that the lieutenant has passed away. Apparently she got caught dragging a kal solider back to Hq we must again move. The Lieutenant was beaten and told her cover was blown, so she bit down and took her suicide pill. Nixie was caught in a chase and fought the kal until unable to fight anymore. She went out in a blaze of glory and took the secrets she knew with her. This is a sad day, but at least we are safe once again. For the time being we are moving into the desert princes land until things settle down for a bit. Too many incursions have happened recently, and I feel it may be for the best. I am also requesting some help due to the number of losses we have faced in the last month.
Your servant Zireez
