Hello there,

I am hoping you can help, well, I have been advised that you can. I am Thomas Benfray, current Mayor of Merrleworth, within the Brandin Mountains. We have currently been having a number of strange things happen in and around the Barony and the seers of the Silver Light said that you were probably the best people to ask for help.

I can explain what is going on, and if you can spare some people to help we have a few Grulls to pay to get the problem sorted. This isn’t something anything we have had to deal with before, so apologies if I have gone about it the wrong way. I haven’t been mayor for very long.

Anyway, things first started about 3 weeks ago, Panfell and his boys took his goats out to Flat Top Hill when the snow cleared, as he got closer they started acting, the goats that is, not Panfell. They refused to go through the gate and when they were forced through they huddled in the lowest corner and pretty much stood there all the time. We had a meeting few days later and have let them share Flowing Stream Hill for now.

Jason, one of Penfell’s sons, went up the hill to have a look around and there had been a bit of a landslide. He saw a couple of people moving about so he called out to them and they vanished. As he went closer he saw some of those undead creatures we always get warned about during Tuesday’s services.

We had a council meeting a week later, where the chosen person from each village and hamlet come along and discuss things, but everyone apart from Darryl from Merrleworth itself was acting really strange, all were lot more grumpy, some got quite angry over little things. We never got as far as deciding anything. Oh, I wasn’t angry or grumpy, least I don’t think I was.

Since then I have had a number of complaints of people being a lot more argumentative then they ever have been before. We normally all get on fairly ok.

They say things always come in threes, and the 3rd thing happened just a couple of days ago: outside of Merrleworth there is a field with an old oak tree in the middle of it, we call it Oak Tree Field, the tree was struck by lighting and split open during the storms through the night. Such a shame as tree been there as long as anyone can remember. In the morning the kids went out to have a look and inside it they found this strange waxy object. No idea what it is, is currently sitting in my office, well I say office, it’s a back room in the Meeting Place Tavern, but is where each mayor works from.

All this got me a bit worried so I went up Tall Peak to visit the Silver Light, an old Elvish family who have lived here forever. They have fortune telling powers and “insights in to things that may yet come” there words, not mine. They were the ones that said the best thing to do was contact the Church of Unity and ask for help. Will apologise in advance for not knowing much about your faith, you’re not on Father Patrick’s list of sermons he gives. But they said you could help in investigating and solving what is going on for “A shadow grows, the Kinship of Valour pathways are open and the malevolence calls to the unguided.” Again, there words, and I have been staring at them for the last day and, if I am honest, I am not really sure what they all actually mean.

Are you able to help? If you could meet me in the Meeting Place Tavern we can discuss further, I already wrote more than I was expecting. All this has me worried.


Thomas Benfray
Mayor of Merrleworth

Regards,
Pillar.

Ooc- Booked on as my Tollum rebirth. All 250 points of armoured priest smile.gif I'm guessing we don't have comm 2 on our list. Don't make me buy the miracle instead of getting a resistance to tod 😂

Dear Pillar,

Should you have any questions, I can tell you the answers - you need only ask. What would you like to know?

If you struggle to find me, I will create a teaching scripture of the Greater Communication miracle so if I am not around, you may commune with me through your spiritual power instead. If you would wish other scriptures, I will have Clovis scribe them for you. Is there anything else you, or others in the faith may be in need of? In particular anything for Sunsday?

Remstar
Virtue of Unity


(OOC - Will happily make a scripture of com 2, Clovis could make something too, couple of Comm 1's? Pete, would you like one also?)

(I'd gladly have any that are going! I'm saving up for a spirit form though, so only if its cost effective.

Right then. Here's what I want to know after hearing Thomas' story.

1) Why is Unity best placed to help Thomas?

2) What happened three weeks ago that caused the goats behave strangely?

3) What is the situation surrounding the landslide?

4) Why are people acting differently at and after the council meeting?

5) What is the waxy object found in the lightemine struck tree?

6) Can we trust the Elves of Starlight? What should we know about them?

7) What do we need to understand about the cryptic warning given to Thomas by the Elves of Silver Light?

Speak freely if ye think I have missed anything.

Pillar.

I wish I could be going, but I can't, and I'm sure you'll all do great work.

Sounds to me like there is something under the hill, maybe a pathway to somewhere else, and for whatever reason things and dark power have started coming through and making people angry with each other. No idea about the tree though. Seems like we could help because we're all about the why can't we just get along and fixing small stuff rather than the smiting. Reckon talking to people will help, usually does - never could get my head around scrying, although in fairness I have also been know to get east and west confused. Never hurts to take some spare food either.

Good luck, and let me know what happens, or if there's anything I can do.

Oh dear, am I going to miss a picnic?

May the weeping commence - I trust you'll all fix the problem, though, without Tavis or I around to mess it up.

I will answer some of your questions Pillar but will leave some for our own investigations.

The goats were behaving strangely, due to a dark power coming from a cave which was opened up by a landslide. Some say animals are the first to sense evil, which is why their behaviour has been odd.

The people outside the main village have been acting strangely for a few weeks now due to a faint demonic taint upon them all. This became more noticeable when they were with people they hadn't seen for a while like those from the main village,

The waxy object found within the lightning struck tree, is unknown. It is ritualistic in nature, and bound with a number of powers none of them evil or dark. We will need to investigate this carefully in detail, but this is not urgent. I suggest over lunch we investigate this

If those coming who are able could make themselves familiar with the Bless miracle, and Pacification spell that would be helpful to us.

Let the virtues of love, hope, faith, peace, courage an mercy be with you all.

So, how did it go? I heard something about goats, hope it wasn't that Mendez lot again, and someone seems to have left me some lovely Knights of the Land cake, which is grand, all things considered.

Some people had sealed a demon in a cave a long time ago because they couldn't defeat it. They had hidden the ritual needed to bind it in a tree and hidden the keys all around the place, then left a clue with the local Baron (with instructions that he pass it down from generation to generation until we turned up). Sadly the last Baron died without heir about 50 or 60 years ago but since then the villagers have just elected a council, which seems to be working out very well. The scrolls with the clues were still sitting in the Baron's house, so we followed them and got all four keys (including the one held by an orc tribe, which I'm happy to say we retrieved without having to fight anyone, just by being reasonable). Then we went into the cave where the demon was sealed, performed the ritual and trapped the demonic essence temporarily in an orb.

We had pretty much agreed that Remstar was going to take the "Mantle of the Demonic Embodiment of Anger" onto/into himself because he thinks he's a god and is really powerful but at the last moment Lizzie decided that she'd be a better choice, so now she's got it in her. On her. I'm sure she'll be fine for the moment but we should probably find a way of permanently trapping it in something which isn't a person before long.

I think that's about it, apart from the cake.

I just knew he'd be too busy waving a sword around keeping us all alive at the time and the alternative was letting it out into the world so yes I am wearing a demonic mantel but as I knew I can't won't hurt anyone so it's safe for now but Ok would like shot of it sooner rather than later 😆
