Sirs,

For the last two days I have been fighting Demon incursions in Halgar.

On Starsday I met with Tally Badgloom and a Troll named Cleft to clear out a demon incursion in a town in Rural Halgar and further to put in place a ritual to prevent more incursions, despite being a small group we were successful. I was saddened to find that the citizens of this village had been under siege for 5 months. Many of the villages had already been killed but we were able to clear out all the demons, put in place protections and help the remaining villagers rally together, we also freed up the dam that had been put in place by the demons.

Today I engaged in a mission with Penny Winterhaven and her father to help clear their lands of demons, fortunately we were successful again however in the course of our mission we found some missives of the demons where they detailed some of their plans for a full invasion.

They plan on invading Gothiel directly within the month!

After this they will move onto Halgar, they seem to be of the view that Gothiel must be dealt with to make taking Halgar easier. Peronal Winterhaven is notifying the Inquisition and I will be ensuring the Knights of the Land are aware, further I will be asking any allies and friends that are able to travel immediately to Gothiel and aid in its defence. I myself will be in Gothiel within a day or so unless I can secure arcane transport in which case I will be there sooner.

The Demons seem to be very well organised, this is clearly a far reaching and ambitious plan that suggests powerful leadership that has been drawing in and controlling many different types of Demons.

I fear for my home.


Valentine.



/ooc this is the brief for the LOTS GS on the 20th June

'Valentine,

I currently travel to Gothiel to meet with Asta Khan. I shall meet you there to aid in the repelling of this demonic assault.

I myself, have found the presence of many demons on my travels, and have come under attack as well. These are dark times.

May the Lady guide our actions,

Loric.'

Many of us were already preparing to gather in a few weeks in order to deal with another issue. It would obviously be appropriate to deal with these demons as a matter of urgency, instead.

I trust that preparations will be made by those permanently residing in the City, so as to ensure that we are able to act swiftly and decisively when we muster.

Martin or Darig - are you able to attend? If so, it would clearly be appropriate for you or another City Council member to take charge.

I don't have a licence to hire mercenaries at present but I will either get one or find someone who has and through that channel see that you are paid if you can come along and help out Tally. Failing that, my family are in Gothiel and I can arrange somewhere for you to stay and have hot meals.

As Marshal of Gothiel I have authority to hire mercenaries for matters related to the defense of the city and surrounding lands, if that is a concern to anyone.

Furthermore Valentine, do not fear for your home. The Lady is always with us, the faithful are very proactive in engaging threats and on a mundane level our troops are much better able to defend our rural territories than those of other cities.

We are taking the right course here - attacking them early before any foothold can be established.

Martin

Martin, I'm sure you are right however, If I may be so bold I would council planning for the worst.

I have never seen such organisation from this type of enemy before. I have spent the last few days fighting them in various parts of Halgar as have other mercenary companies. In the last week an entire company of Knights of the Land were killed and used in one of the most heinous undead constructions I have ever heard of.

This is clearly a concerted and well coordinated effort on the part of these Demons and whilst I would not wish to spread fear or panic I think that any confidence in our past victories against foes of this nature should be well tempered.

I feel that there is more at work here...and I do not like surprises.


Velentine.

I am sure that Martin will use caution and wise strategy, as he always does.

However, I have stood by his side whilst facing down enemies of all kinds, including deities. They are now all either destroyed or redeemed, and we are still here.

There may be sorrow before victory, but faith always prevails. Particularly when the odds seem stacked against us.

We have fought organised, intelligent, downright cunning and manipulative foes before, with powers far beyond what I have experienced of these demons so far. We have redeemed gods, slain avatars, stood in the face of the most desperate adversity and still prevailed. As has always been the case, with faith in our hearts we will succeed, no matter the odds, no matter how desperate.

Governor,

Any information relating to tactics would be most appreciated. Are they planning a full on assault?, do they have spies or agents already located within or near the city? Will there be a particular type of Demon that will be assaulting or will it be a mixture as we have found in other places? What sort of deffenses would be most effective for Mercenaries and the City to employ? and perhaps most importantly, can we narrow down a more precise time of attack? at present we only know that it will be within the month...

thank you again.

Valentine.

With her Grace, I can gaze into possible futures and see what may come to pass. The future is by no means clear however and I am sure things will become less clouded as the weeks go by. At present I would estimate more than 3 weeks, but less than 5.

To Valentine, Ignatius, the Council of Gothiel and the Church of the Lady of the Stars,

Please pardon my intrusion into your hallowed halls but I felt it important to convey this information to you directly. I have just received a report from mercenaries who have been working to combat the demonic incursion into Rural Halgar, and a portion of it concerns the threat to Gothiel. My informant states that they found a letter mentioning attack on the city of Gothiel, and "a mustering of great force to attack the city. There were dates given on these letters for future planned rituals/attacks." He believes that the attack will come on Starsday 20th Juon.

I do not presently have a copy of the letter in question, but as soon as I receive one I will pass it on to you, along with any other information I receive. In addition, I have made some of the Inquisition's slush fund available to you for the day.

Peronel Winterhaven
Deputy Lord Inquisitor

You have my thanks Lord Seeker.

I understand that resources are likely stretched at present given the scale of the incursions and appreciate any assistance the Inquisition is able to offer.

Many thanks to those who have gathered information regarding the demon threat to the city. As a member of the faith stationed in Gothiel I will of course be coming to help out and repel the threat.
