Anon and Anarisk are tasked with working on the summoner’s codex recovered from the ruins of Old Chicago. Information about the tome, the spell construction, and other arcane mysteries may reveal clues about who crafted the spell and where the might be found.
Use K/Arcana at -4 to investigate the book. Add +2 if you also have the Research skill.
Big Talkers (Sinder and Merlaggon)
Sinder and Merlaggon fly west of Castle Refuge, into the old state of Oklahoma. Thanks to his new steed Sinder doesn’t have to hitch a ride on Merlaggon’s back, and Merlaggon does not have to suffer the indignity of being a beast of burden.
Sinder make a Survival roll to make connection with the local Simvan Tribe. This counts as using I Know a Guy for this quarter. Merlaggon can make a cooperative roll to support Sinder’s efforts.
Riding Herd (Rod, Alecto, Seric, Stormforge)
The remaining team members move at mach speed toward Coalition territory. After a very tense moment with a network of anti-aircraft batteries the General proves good to his word and the Dragonwing is able to pass into CS controlled air space. The site of the battle with the Spiny Ravagers is easy to find, the CS Armored Platoon that took them down also laid waste to huge tracts of land. Setting down inside the platoon’s security zone the group is greeted by a surly Sergeant who knows he needs to help but isn’t happy about it. He’s flanked by a psi-stalker in light armor, she obviously can smell magic on Gryphus.
“I got orders direct from high command to give you support. But frankly, I don’t like it. The basics are simple, they came from the east. We shot them to hell. It’s a big damn herd, following their trail should be easy enough for you.”
The Sergeant is uncooperative. If you want more assistance we’ll do this as a 3 round social conflict (Persuasion opposed by Spirit). Otherwise tracking the herd will be a Complex Dramatic Task (Survival and Knowledge Arcana). Getting support from the CS will reduce the number of successes required on the task.
