Jericho – The Wood Fae have been freed. The isle of Melinda retaken. Ga’More beaten back. You unwake from this dream of victory into nightmare. A terrible presence lurks beneath while the dark, unknown forest threatens to overtake you. The branches reach out, grabbing you like the hands of prisoners sentenced to death. Orange eyes peak out at you from the darkness and their presence causes rot within all that you see. The presence of great forces moving, armies marching towards obliteration, is felt through your feet. They are far now but you know they approach and will be here soon. The only sound, that of children sobbing in the distance. You know not which source of death will reach you first. All you can do is wait.
Now when all hope is lost a lone figure appears in the gloom. A horse? No, the body of a man. His fur is fire and it lights the gloom, beating it away the terrors of the night. Perhaps there is hope. The man reaches you and extends a hand. You reach for it with small arms and grasp with your little strength.
Welcome to Underworld Jericho’s fourth full weekend event of the season! It’s pretty difficult to follow up the level of epic that was Warcry but we’ll do our best with what we’ve got. This event represents our halfway point in the season, which means that Kyle Fair is now your new Head Shaper and Christopher R. returns to duty as a regular shaper. Kyle is now running the main plotlines until All Hallows, and this event is his first. His message to you follows:
“We’re expecting very warm weather so expect the order of events to reflect that. We have intentionally arranged a lull of full scale events on Saturday in the late afternoon to give everyone a chance to cool down. There is still lots to do though so try not to burn yourselves out.
Last month saw a number of victories achieved by the town of Jericho. The creation of the Trilock Seal, the capturing of the Gut-Bloater, and what appears like peace achieved with the local Firbolg Tribe.
That said, nobody who ever reached the top did so without stepping over other people.
There are other issues that still need to be addressed at home.
The Corpse Picker Clan of greenskins seems to be an even bigger problem than before now bolstered by a mercenary force of Gnolls. The incidence of muggings and thefts by a band of Hobling criminals seems to be rising. The local snake men are worried about figures they have seen moving in the swamps. To top it all off, most of the prisoners from the Asylum Heretica are still at large and the children are mostly still missing.
At the end of the day Jericho still feels like some kind of backwards one horse town.”
