<The following is posted on the usual mercenary hiring boards around the Empire - The penmanship is particularly poor and looks like a spider has crawled through the wet ink, the spelling appears to have been corrected by someone else>

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Mercenary Community

I know this is very advanced notice however for reasons that I shall explain it is probably best that I start gathering people now to ensure 'all bases are covered' and that we don't have any accidents or misunderstanding down the line.

I represent the Black Chamber Scrivenry of the Imperial Seers and for reasons beyond my current comprehending I have become aware of a threat to the Empire that is otherwise not apparent to my black glove wearing, dour faced compatriots.

To expand slightly - I have the capacity to see events that may occur, often with no active attempt on my part to do so.

I recently had an unsolicited vision of a crack under Selaville in what is know as the "Power Well". I told Expressionless Seer Number Three who passed it up the chain. This led to a small investigative mission to the Well by the Inquisition. They discovered that there was indeed a small crack "in the air" through which heat could be felt. The nature of the Power Well apparently is reflecting this heat and the Well is starting slowly to align itself to fire and unholiness. The nature of the Power Well as it changes is in turn forcing open or empowering the opening of the crack (very slowly).

So... Why do I need mercenaries? The inquisition believe that by the 2nd day of the 11th Month the crack will be big enough for a person to step through. Currently neither I nor any of the Chuckle Club can pierce the crack with scrying power so we have very little idea what to expect EXCEPT:

I have a VERY finely honed sense of self preservation which when combined with the capacity to foretell possible futures is proper useful. I have discovered that were I to pass through (when it is big enough) I would be for some reason seriously disadvantaged. Having discovered this small chip in whatever was warding 'beyond the crack' as I am calling it, I came at the chip from a number of angles and discovered that essentially the issue was my morality! As far as I can ascertain, being of 'dark heart' through the crack will be a slow and painful death, being overtly evil (demons, undead and the like) will likely end in swift and painful death (no idea why, the crack is stopping my having visions beyond it).

Also being an outlaw 'beyond the crack' will be fatal.

OK that bit was a lie. Being an outlaw will be fatal long before you get to the crack. They are free kills right? I am hardly ever allowed to kill anyone any more, so I am pretty certain without using any fortelling ability that I will have a pop.

So - G3000 a day, potions paid for, armour paid for, dark of heart and outlaws at your own risk, keep anything you find unless it is a risk to Empire or Primus. Plant a big flag for the Empress. Job done

G5000 bonus for a quality written report

Any questions I will be around - very little else to do!

I'm intending to join this hire, in preparation I have done some limited scrying into the mission.

Unfortunately the powers at my disposal would not penetrate through the rift as it is still forming.

However I did get the sense that our journey to/through the rift will involve large/dangerous amounts of fire so being warded against this in one form or another would be useful and having equipment to help protect us would be a good idea.

Within the power well there is some equipment left behind by a previous group which would be useful for us to locate,so it will probably be sensible for us to have a look around before we travel through the rift.

I'm sure that Mr Fourfingers has further information that he will be happy to share but I have some time to engage in little bit more scrying before we meet on saturday if anybody who is planning on joining has any questions.

Masters Fourfingers and Ivan,

Warm greetings to you both.

I have recently been summoned to primus, and instructed to attend to see if there is anything I can do in His name to assist in these endeavours.

I have little to fear from the warnings of being of dark heart, and gleefully embrace the flames of creation (less gleefully mortals with swords!).

Yours in anticipation,

Calmirael Blaze

Great, well two of you is a start, probably will need some more!

As an update - as of a couple of hours ago it got more dangerous under the city, my powers revealed some demons (hazy to me) a warding (no further details) and, oddly and I am not sure I believe a stag, horns and all...

I guess this means the crack is big enough to squeeze though, earlier than anticipated.

I still can't see in.

Jake

I have just finished in Alguz for a leave period and was planning to travel back to the Cross in the south but demonic rifts encroaching into Primus sounds more important, I'll be there.

The area seems to be in a state of flux so further divination are unlikely to yield anything useful until we are close enough to see whats going on.

Although anybody intending on fighting the demons there should be warned that some of them are invulnerable to non supernatural blades

The disturbance within the wind of Fire is of concern; I will attend.
