knew something was odd about this new group of Sunspears when they refused to
use the tools she gave them. "No thanks, I use what I can get for myself,"
was what they each said.
was how these people worked. No freebies, no handouts, nothing they couldn't get
out in the wild. They lived by the credo that the test of a true warrior was to
ignore the urge for gold and to claim armor and weapons from the corpses of enemies.
was how they came together. They recognized their kindred spirits when they saw
them and worked together without any elaborate explanations.

times can one village be attacked and burned down before it's no longer on the
map? How many Sunspears does it take to deliver a package? Find out as a new group
of stalwart adventurers begin their quest to make the lands of Elona safer for
all, while they disregard the perks of society.
was sometime early in the morning when the Corsairs decided to attack. Groups
of sunspears were forming all around Chahbek in order to mount a defense and take
the town back. Most were still green and running around in a panic, completely
clueless. There were some, however, who recognized the smell of battle and grew
eager. Then there were those who just weren't paying attention.
there was one other group. A group of fighters who weren't bound by the normal
constraints of having to worry about whether their armor matched their hair color
or whether they wanted to look glitzy to show off themselves. They lived off the
land, and the land provided all they need. Their armor was the corpses of their
enemies, their weapons the bones of their enemies. They lived in the wild, they
communed with nature, baths were optional. They were: the LoL brigade.
the LoL brigade?
The LoL brigade. Even the name they chose for themselves was representative for
how they felt about society and it's pre-occupation with appearances. They kept
things simple, clean (well...), efficient. More to the point, they lived off the
land and this was the abbreviation of that.
had gone ahead and were already in Kamadan for the Halloween festival. Others
had just arrived. While one group busied themselves carrying out the requests
of townsfolk, the other rescued Chahbek from the seemingly endless assault of
the Corsair. Neither was very difficult. The townsfolk mostly needed errands run
and the Corsair decided to land their ships within the line of fire of Istani
catapults. Don't ask why, no one has been able to figure that out.
Chahbek saved, the groups both found themselves running around doing errands for
the people of Kamadan, just to prove that they were worthy of being Sunspears.
How delivering packages would prove their mettle in combat, no one knew, but it
liberation of Chahbek was short-lived, however, as Corsair once again decided
to attack the poor village. And so, another group formed and saved the village.
chance or fate would have it, the 3 groups found themselves face to face with
each other. Deciding that 2 full groups would be more efficient than 3 partial
groups, they agreed to work together. When they finally decided on their groups,
they went out into the wild where they belonged. The desert-like Plains of Jarin
were soon covered with dead plants and insects, much in the way that deserts normally
they completed the requests of the villagers and went back to Kamadan in order
to inform said villagers of said completions, they found themselves standing in
front of Dehvad, the First Spear, who had new orders for them. Trouble was starting
and battle awaited them. But first, they had to finish up a few loose ends.
