    As soon as everything quieted down, Carolyn spoke up. "I'm playing as Luciana Nuvolo, a Sirena Lightsinger - also a neutral good. Unlike the others, she was taught only the bare basics of travel and self-defense, but learned more through observing everything around her - from town gossip to wanderers' tales."

    "That's everyone..." Brock mused as he cued the opening music. "Hear now the exploits of the Jeweled Champions and Friends..."

    He reached for a book. "We'll get started with the adventure 'The Slaying Stone'--adventure code K5, for those keeping track."

    Once the overture faded away, Brock next cued some ambiance of a stormy night, complete with the occasional rumble of thunder. "You guys have traveled together for some time. But on this particular night, you were unlucky enough to get caught in a storm."

    He then reads the adventure's introduction. "A cold wind whips at you and tears at your cloaks. The moon is shrouded behind a gray haze , and you hear Mightyenas baying in the dark woods all around."

    As if on cue, a faint Mightyena howl pierces through the simulated storm. "Against the dusky sky, you can just make out the shadow of a low tower. A lantern burns in one of its windows and begins to sway, beckoning you towards the safety of shelter."

    He asks the group "Do you guys want to head for the tower now, or do you guys want to visit for a minute? Remember, your characters have traveled together and had many adventures together, so try to reflect this in your chats."

    Keda glanced over to the others. "My friends, we should make haste toward the tower; nighttime is dangerous, even for those of us who are used to travel, and the weather does not aid us."

    After a few seconds of thinking of different possible scenarios Sharian said, "I agree. We don't even know what possible dangers are out there and I prefer us being in a safer location if we do run into trouble."

    After conferring for a moment, Serena tells Brock "We will continue onward to the tower--we will talk more there."

    Brock bristled at an encounter in the adventure book. "Out of character for a second..." he began as he faded out the storm ambiance. "Would you guys want to fight now, or wait until you get your objective?"

    Shadow wanted to get to know the basics of everything before they got too into the game, but he first wanted to hear what the others had to say about the issue.

    "What would we be facing?" Serena asks

    "A Mightyena pack." Brock replies.

    "That's not too hard, but a fight out of the gate seems unfair." Misty cautions.

    "Yeah--save the fights for when we get our objective." Ash agrees

    "I agree with Ash and Misty," Robert added, though he wasn't really sure if he should say something or not. However, it seemed the question was open to the whole table, so it should be okay to reply.

    "I do take a page from Wayfarer, Chambers and Charizards' cousin, in that you can get experience for any meaningful action you do." Brock explains. "This really opens up a ready made adventure in giving you guys more choice in how you achieve the adventure's objective. So in every adventure we play, you will have a main objective and maybe a few side objectives depending on the adventure. How you achieve these objectives is totally up to you."

    "Understood," Carolyn replied. She was curious as to what this objective was. But the story had sure got to a great start so far - this tower sure was intriguing.

    Brock checked the results of a poll to the audience. "Seems the audience agrees with you guys--an encounter out of the gate is unfair."

    After cuing some indoor storm ambiance, he called "Back in character, guys."

    Robert nodded toward Brock and waited for Carolyn's character to voice her assent so that Brock could move them toward the tower.

    "The three·story stone tower belongs to a young ritualist named Treona." Brock reads over the indoor rain ambiance. "She invites you guys into her sitting room, where a fire roars in the hearth. A regal man in his mid forties descends the stairs to join you, and Treona introduces him as Kiris Alkirk."

    Keda nodded his head in respect, saying, "Thank you very much for inviting us in, good sir and miss. We apologize for the intrusion, but both the time and weather bode ill for anyone unfortunate to get caught in it."

    Carolyn hesitated for a moment, then spoke up as Luciana. "You have our thanks. Might you have anything we can aid you in, as a way to return your kindness?"

    Sharian bowed his head with Robert as a show of respect but felt it unnecessary to speak his thanks. He glanced towards the fire with wonder.

    "Treona tells you guys she's been keeping an eye on you, after hearing news of your exploits." Brock reads more text over the ambiance and the visual on the screen of a cozy fantasy house. "She explains that she and Alkirk need competent risk-takers to recover something for them. Alkirk is the last heir in the Kiris line, the rulers of the fallen town of Kiris Dahn. Eight years ago, Alkirk, Treona, and the citizens were forced to abandon Kiris Dahn. In the face of an overwhelming goblin invasion, the populace scattered to other settlements or secluded lives."

    He continues "The goblins took over Kiris Dahn and live there today. Before the goblins came, the Kiris line had exhausted its supply of slaying stones, powerful items that used magic to kill the town's greatest enemies. The town had eight of them, and all had been spent to destroy various threats. The goblins came in great numbers, and there was no stone to frighten them off. While studying obscure historical texts, Treona found references indicating that there were actually nine slaying stones, not eight. Treona wants you guys to find and retrieve the remaining stone so she can destroy it using a ritual she has devised.

    Brock next projects a map on the screen for everyone to see. "Treona gives the characters a map, and explains that the goblins live primarily in the northern sections of the town, so it will be easier for the characters to travel through the southeast. She thinks the slaying stone likely rests within the old library, one of the temples, or the Kiris estate. All of these are outside the areas where most of the goblins live."

    He then gives the group two objectives. "Your main objective here is to find and destroy the last slaying stone, or bring the used remains of it. A side objective is to find some arcane writings somewhere in the ruined town."

    Studying the map, Keda couldn't help but mull over the main objective. "If I may," he began, "If these stones are as powerful as you say, would the last one - should it truly exist and be whole - be used to destroy the goblins and retake the town? In addition, if there was a 'supply', then what happened to the supplier?"

    "The identity of those that created the stones has long since been lost." Brock replies in a mimic of a young lady for Treona. "I suspect that something may have directed the goblins to take the town--if you find this leader and defeat it, surely the goblins will flee, and we can rebuilld it."

    Placated, Keda turned to Luciana and Sharian and asked, "I think that this would be the least we could do for them. What are your thoughts on the matter, my friends?"
