The 1st Recon Squad has ample to time to clean, service, and repair their equipment (private message for requests.) Transporation is accomodating and the trip takes less than an hour.

Though the early morning fog, the road winds away from the Walls of Bath and disappears. Heading east, the VHX feel the fog collect on their gear and transportation. The fog adds dampness but does not drench or saturate the Squad's gear. And the ride is made mostly in silence (unless the squad members would like to converse in transit).

Arrival at the Salibury Millenial Tree is doe without fanfare or really anyone noticing their arrival, so far.

Earl is grateful to be out on the trail and riding point on Eleanor even more. His Coalition scout training kicks in and as the fog rolls in, he focuses on his armor to see through the mist as if it wasn’t even there almost instinctively. Sure, there was probably a way they could travel fast. Heck, Kardiss could probably be to the tree in the blink of an eye on his own. Still, Earl had a touch of regret that the trip was over upon reaching the tree. It had been a while since the only sound around was the lulling clop of Eleanor’s robotic hooves.

"Agh!" Seelia exclaims, hopping from seat to seat with some acrobatic aplomb. Her wings vibrated agitatedly as she bounced hither and yon, but she didn't lift off. "Cursed fog! It's going to make my wings all soggy!"

She whipped out her tiny silver sword and stabbed and slashed with it in midair a few times. "Begone foul vapors! SEELIA NISHNOCKET shall not become the victim of your malevolent moisture!"

Despite the pixie's concerns, either the fog wasn't thick enough, or her buzzing was fast enough, that the water didn't quite build up to the point her wings got 'soggy.' At least not yet.

Rolls: Notice 5 (assist) , Common Knowledge 4
Notice 1d8 = 5 (5) or 1d6 = 5 (5)

True to most English Summers, the fog greats most travelers with a sense of the dismal and even the forlorn. But spirits are high and the traveling group is making good use of their time.

Earl's Darksight reveals that there have been some new arrivals since their last visit. It would seem the Millenial Tree continues to be an active rift and traveling conduit for displaced or fleeing creatures. The communities around the tree are managing themselves but may need a stricter intervention in the near future to allow for growth.

Kardis peers deep and with sight unbenownest. The clouds above tremble and quiver as the mighty cosmo knight’s gaze is fully realized. ” There is no forge, no space, no blackness from which evil may hide from my sight unseen. Come forth specters and hollowed souls, Kardis is near.”

Earl cringes at Kardis’ announcement.

So much for the subtle approach

He instinctively checks his weapons and then stops. The beings living here don’t pose any threat, but Coalition indoctrination dies hard. The communities might do with some law and order, but it wasn’t his place to give it to them.

“Are we going to socialize with the locals or get to the business we came here for?”

The path to the Millenial Tree is unchanged. It is wide and well maintained and heads into the base of the tree which sits at the crest of Salibury Hill. This Tree has a sizeable archway that opens into the base of the tree, the interior of which is 50 feet in diameter.

Those of the Squad who made this journey the last time, recall that the challenge was discovering the physical access to the lower levels. It was not something that was magical or arcane in any manner. The access was designed in a fashion to utilize optical illusions and the physical features of the Tree's interior.

In regards to Detect Arcana and the like. Their is plenty of rift and ley line residue. Two active Ley Lines converge in the Tree and the resulting Nexus opens rifts and closes them. The Nexus and the Rift Openings have not been studied or documented at any great length.

Once again we meet old tree. I knew thee as a sapling. It does me well to see you strong.”
Kardis’ strides to the tree and gives it a mighty hug. ” True it is that the sight of legends fills me with pride.” Kardis begins the task to find the well hidden path to Coalfax. But not before entreating the other heores from the Hall.
” When the nova grows dim the other stars shine brighter.” His plea for help locating the way in is evident if not obscured.

Notice:6
Notice 1d8 = 6 (6)
Wild Die 1d6 = 3 (3)


Earl cocks his head at Kardis.

“You could just say you don’t know how to get inside, you know.”

Earl takes a look at the tree, not having been on the previous mission, he is at a loss on where to even start.

Dismounting, he pats Eleanor’s polymer composite plating.

“Hey girl, see what your sensors pick up as far as anything that might let us inside the lower levels.”

Eleanor Notice:6
1d8+2 = 6 (4) Power Armor sensors and communication, including 360 radar, thermal imaging, night vision, HUD, and +2 to Notice checks.

Obviously, Peace is an Observer. He uses all his mental faculties and the limited, but high quality, sensors on the Cyclone to, well, observe. Observation, good observation includes good reporting. So as Peace observes, he provides quality and continuous narration of his findings.

"Approximately 125 meters away is a... The sky is currently... and the ambient temperature is... etc. etc. and it is a most conducive day for an invid attack, thankfully I have been alerting the locals to said danger and I'm sure they are taking steps to prepare themselves. More so than any of the other Sentinel worlds, I believe this one might have the best chance for survival. Pure hell has already been visited to this world and they struggle on. And now back to the tree...etc. etc."

He adds to his running (and recorded) notes his recollections from the encounter with this area previously. There is a certain amount of surrealism to the whole situation. Above and beyond the other bizarre things on this world, a big physics defying tree somehow strikes him as the most odd. It is also unnerving because a giant physics defying tree is just the sort of thing the invid would like or would create in a vile genesis pit. Yes, this place does not strike Peace as a comfortable place.

Shaking of the discomfort, Peace continues his observation by canvasing any locals he can. His definition of unusual and the definition of the locals may be somewhat different, but Peace is affable enough to pull it off. Or so he thinks.
