When you come into the office a man with a red jacket, a baseball cap, and a goofy grin greets you, " Welcome, Welcome, so exciting! Please grab a chair! We have water and some pastries." One of the first things you know about the office is that the wall next to the door has a coat of fresh paint on it, and the telltale marks of covered up fist sized holes. As more of you come in he exclaims, " So exciting, great to meet you all."
Ms. Dee gives a slight cough. Pender looks at her abashed and fumbles for a moment then continues, " Well I got a mission for you. Lord Choke recommended all you for this. I ahh..." The man looks down at his desk trying to find a file of some kind. Ms. Dee slaps the appropriate file into his hands. " Yes here it is. Several months ago we were contacted by Sebre Lasar-." Pender stops mid sentance and looks at Ms. Dee and whispers, " Is he really an emperor?" Ms. Dee simply nods her head and Hrumphs Pender nods and continues with Ravid excitement, " So this guy is an actual emperor! Well he contacted us asking for some assistance in surveying a ruined area near ... We lost contact with a survey team out west... Near the town of New Del Rio. We have been in regular contact with them until recently. What! They found 4 dragon eggs!!" He stops reading the report setting it down for a moment.
" Can you believe it, they found dragon eggs over there!! Just imagine the glory and heroics involved!" Ms. Dee picks the report off the desk seeing that the captain's delusions of grandeur have taken full effect.
She takes over summarizing the details. very no nonsense she states, " The security team sent with them got a report out through our communications network. Vampires had overrun their position as well as the town of New Del Rio. We need you to recover the survey and security team, locate and bring back the dragon eggs, and if possible be a hero to those in New Del Rio. If we can show Emporer Lasar the tomorrow legion is a force dedicated to making a better tomorrow to all it will go along way in gaining an ally." She cracks a sharp smile and ends with, " If you can see to bring back the Mark V we lent the security team that would be helpful too."
Captain Pender sensing the finality of what she said, brings his focus back to the group. He grabs a letter on his desk, only to mis and knock it onto the floor. He fumbles and bends down gathering it. He looks at the group, looking at your faces very carefully. He settles on Penitent. " Oh yes Pentameter, a message for you regarding, ummm some contacts that would be useful." Captain Lumkiss hands over the sealed letter.
Captain Pender sits down, looking at his desk making sure he did not leave any details out. He picks up a small sticky note, " Oh it looks like the Survey Team met a local down there, Vela..." He grabs a requisition form off his desk and laughs, " I guess Terra was none too happy about this one, but when Lord Toke leader of Cyberknights puts in a direct request... We have set you up to meet with Tyler Thomas, Terra Silverforge's assistant. You can obtain a Techno Wizard flame blade, don't get too excited Terra would not part with anything but her Prototypes, or you can get one of your standard Melee weapons silver plated... Looks like here it says the silver plating dulls the edge just a bit...Hmm says it will be a rush job, not sure what that means. Haha! I doubt anyone uses slug throwers, but apparently there are some rounds that can be made available. Oh look here, a Legion Truck will be provided... What another true atlantean..." His voice drops low and too Ms. Dee he whispers, " How many of these guys are we sending?"
Ms. Dee looks at him with a death stare. Captian Lumpkiss looks up from the requisition report, " Sorry B'aughb will be the driver, doesn't talk much"
Ms. Dee coughs sharply, " Brothers!" She sets down the report. Pointedly she finishes the briefing, " You will meet with B'aughb in three hours time, and head out due south. 45 miles is the rift we use for our lines of communication you should be able to get there a few hours after sunset. I believe Krysesia is equipped to open a portal and get you to the Survey teams site in one piece. You could of course wait until morning, but Pender did not tell you we literally just got their request for help. Get your gear sorted out and go save those folks."
She looks over glasses, "I would reccomend brining water, lots of it... It can get hot and uncomfortable over there. Any questions?"
