"So, there is a legend of a grand monster that lives under the sea. When it rises, hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis and other natural disasters occur as it flies across the sky and swims through the ocean. Thus it has gained the name of The Storm King. It has immense magical power and has been known to end entire civilizations in its wake when it is angered. The good part is that it only comes to surface every 50 years. The bad part is that this is the 50th year. There have been reports of immense storms off of the coast of our neighboring Nation; The Principality of Veronica, and they are requesting your help.
They want you to repel The Storm King. It's a powerful monster, so attempting to kill it would be foolish. Even fighting it would be foolish to be honest. It can control gale force winds that can easily rip a house from its foundations as if it were a blade of grass. It can create tornadoes and can fire out blasts of water with the power of tidal waves. This monster is a beast among beasts. It's enormous size and immense power are almost dragon like. However, if it goes through Veronica, it will destroy everything. Their history will be lost. Their culture will be destroyed. We need to end this before it begins.
Thankfully the Storm King tends to be very docile, even for its ability to create storms. It rarely attacks unless you seriously provoke it, so the only thing you have to worry about is surviving in an enormous storm that could easily rip you limb from limb. Thankfully you don't have to worry about trying to fight it back. That is unless you're attempting to kill it. At that point, good luck and I'll be sure to attend your funeral. But if you do manage to kill it, bring it to me so we may study it.
So I want you to redirect the monster. Either force it to take a land path that is not populated or repel it and force it back out to sea. I don't care what you do, just do it and take care of the creature or else there will be a loss that years of work could not recreate."

Siren stat in a high backed chair turned away from a thick heavy desk to overlook the nighttime city of Crocus from atop a hill. The residency she acquired here was fit for any one of the noble families, but was modest in comparison. She didn't want to stand out too much or seem too distant from the common citizen.
The building was mostly composed of stone, with a wooden exterior making it look "Homey" while much of the building was underground and not sticking out. A simple wooden fence boxed in the cabin-like house on the edge of the capital city, blended in with surrounding trees in the U shaped clearing in which her residence sat. One of many.
As cabinlike as the house was, it was still a few floors tall and boasted a tower on one side from which Siren looked out from atop the hill at the sea of lights from the many street lamps and interior lighting throughout the city. Her window was little better, as light from the two fireplaces on either side of the large window illuminated her features and the paper she held in her hands.
It was a message from Count Sparrow, with an attached job request. Using his connections he had diverted the sending of the "Job" away from the guilds and left it in her hands as an official request of the Rune Knights, something to give them relevance again. Something to show that the Rune Knights were stirring back to life.
A calamitous threat was emerging from the ocean to threaten the whole of the Principality of Veronica, threatening to extinguish their culture and civilization in a nation-destroying disaster from an ancient being that was stirring. It was awake already, but slow and still half-asleep as it drifted towards land.
She wouldn't have long to deal with the monster. From the sound of the letter there would only be a day left until it made landfall and started to sweep over the cities of Veronica. Siren was confident she'd be able to handle the job. Her connection to the earth was strong, and what was a storm in the face of a mountain. Few others could be as capable at facing this monster without being tossed in the winds or lost in its waves.
Even from here in Crocus Siren noted irregular weather patterns as this being disrupted natural currents. There had been random rain showers the past three days from rogue clouds. Now she knew why.
"The Storm King". She mused, light from the fires reflecting in her eyes, a smile playing at the corners of her lips. You will be mine. Excitement flickered in her heart as the means further her plans fell right into her lap thanks to the good Count. She wondered if the man knew how much this Storm King influence things to come.
Rising from her chair she stood up and stepped towards the window running from the floor to the ceiling, pressing a hand against it and staring off over the city toward the horizon. The carpet beneath her feet fluttered to life and rose off the ground, shrinking to match the window that opened before her to carry her into the air as it shimmered, disappearing.
