I’m sure a number of you have already been informed about the situation with the dragon eggs, but for the sake of making sure everyone is on the same page, I’m going to recap what happened:
One of the dragon eggs was stolen on Saturday night when we were fighting Alverez and his men. A group of us found it in the woods with a note telling us to take better care of them. When it was scried, we all received a vision of a creature that we thought was Amatoth, but it was believed to be an illusion, which we have good authority to believe is true. The note promptly crumbled into nothing.
After this, Kieran attempted to commune with his dragon spirit and felt something push back against him when he went too deep. His connection with his spirit was temporarily interrupted. Aiki also attempted to commune with his ancestral spirits but felt pushback. At that time, we decided to make one last attempt to get answers, Kieran, Aiki, Mae Fong, and Dr. James poured their power into me and I reached out to Fiona and the spirits of past paladins to see if I could find out what is happening. But Fiona was not who answered me.
Everyone fell unconscious and woke up somewhere dark and cold. We spoke with an entity that would not identify itself, however, it stated that it was an ally with the same goal as us. What it told us was that time is quickly running out for the dragon eggs to hatch and that if we do not act quickly, then time will run out. After awhile, Fiona pulled us back to our bodies. I have reason to believe that this entity was telling the truth.
With all of that being said, the window to usher in a new age of dragons is rapidly closing. If we want this to happen, we need to act now. We have met with the count and he will release the Verdrane Blades from his vaults. Each needs to be delivered to its anchor point in order for us to begin the process of hatching the eggs. This means we’re going to need to divide our efforts to be successful. Everyone needs to spend the next few weeks preparing for journeys to distant lands and doing research to ensure our efforts are successful. Here are the different groups that will be deployed.
Journeying to Honor’s Peak
This group will be led by Olivia and Aiki who is carrying the fire Verdrane Blade Radiziel. The anchor point is believed to be a volcano near Honor’s Peak; this needs to be confirmed. We will likely need to pinpoint the exact location of the volcano and prepare supplies to ensure that everyone can safely traverse the area. Information on the types of creatures that live in that area may also be helpful.
Journeying to Winterdark
This group will be led by Angelina, Gras, and Haytham, who will be carrying the ice Verdrane Blade Maelstrom. The anchor point is at Mirrormere Lake in Winterdark. Similarly, supplies and research are going to be needed for this group to safely traverse this area.
Journeying to Vardemir
This group will be led by me and Kiran, who will be carrying the lightning Verdrane Blade Hastingale. We will need to know where exactly within the city the anchor point is. I could also use help with the ritual to open the gate to Verdrane, as my magic skills are pretty abysmal.
A Journey to the Mountains
One of our townsperson, Uralt, left awhile ago to deliver the earth Verdrane Blade Wardterran to a certain mountain. I’m not entirely sure where this mountain is located, so this may need to be researched. We would preferably like to send a group to this anchor point to ensure that the blade was delivered safely.
Researching the Barrier
It was pointed out that we will need researchers and scholars to pinpoint the exact coverage of the barrier produced by placing the swords. A task force dedicated to this would also be to our benefit.
After this is accomplished, Mirrormere will instruct us further on where and how to hatch the eggs. Please feel free to decide which group your talents and skills will be best applied in. Once we have our groups decided, we can divide up and begin preparing for our respective missions. This will take place over the next week or so. Please let ask if you have any questions. I’m sure the dragoons would be more than happy to answer to the best of their ability.
