    At one point in time, Kolleran was a beautiful village. It was nestled in the woods far south of Clover Town, along the river that ran from the lake down to the Calm Sea. It was a small place, with a simple but honest lift. The villagers saw little trouble day in and day out besides the natural predators of the forests and the occasional bandit group here and there, but the people were more than capable of defending themselves against such threats. Little came from the village outside of the trade goods its people carted regularly to be sold in Hargeon to the west, mostly high quality wood cut from the tree farms and valuable minerals harvested from the river. All in all, it was a peaceful place full of natural beauty that was often left unheard of by most of Fiore as nothing of note ever really seemed to take place there.

    As such, it was quite concerning when one of the villagers came stumbling into the closest Rune Knight garrison, covered in dirt and dried blood. The young man’s clothes were scorched in many places, and he was so overcome by his wounds that he barely had enough energy to explain that the village had been attacked before he succumbed to the injuries. A squad of Knights was immediately dispatched to the area to investigate, the small troop making the trek along the coast in record time, but when they arrived they discovered that the attack was long since over.

    The Knights spread out and got to the tedious task of scouring the area for survivors and clues. At first, there was little evidence of what had transpired. Nearly every body they found appeared to be a member of the village, most with weapons in their hands and signs that they had fought with every tool at their disposal to survive. However, they could not find any sign of what it was they had been fighting. It wasn’t until they started finding traces of strange colored blood that they began to suspect the attackers had not been human. When a scout returned from the woods with a strange device of unknown origins, it was decided that reinforcements were in order.

    The call went out to the garrison and was forwarded back to the headquarters in Era, where a combination of higher ranked Knights from the various branches received orders to make their way to the scene at once. Additionally, after preliminary study of the odd device left the initial knights perplexed, a secondary notice was sent out seeking volunteers with scientific persuasion to assist in identifying the object. Any such mages who wanted to volunteer were instructed to report to the nearest Rune Knight garrison, and after a quick background check to confirm their credentials they would be escorted to the location in question.

    As the mages who had been selected drew near to the town, they would be greeted by a grisly sight. A cursory glance would show that Kolleran had been mostly burned to the ground, though the active flames had since been put out by the first responders, leaving only a thick stench of smoke and death in the air. A number of Knights were still hard at work retrieving the bodies of the dead and lining them up in a clearing closer to the beach where they would eventually have to be examined for further clues and, if possible, identified by any survivors. A large portion of the forest was charred along with the small town it surrounded, and many more Knights were doing their best to set up caution tape and perimeters around areas they wanted to try and preserve for deeper study. A tent had been erected on the far side of the beach that was currently being used as a command station. This would be the location where the reinforcements and volunteer mages had been instructed to meet in order to be briefed on what had been discovered so far.

    Deciding to answer a call for volunteers sent out by the Rune Knights requesting help in identifying a strange object recovered in the aftermath of an attack on a village named Kolleran, Leona had grabbed a couple of her best weapons and hurried to report to the Rune Knights garrison closest to Silver Wolf Guild Hall. Once she reported to the garrison she underwent a background check to confirm she was who she said she was. Once she passed the background check Leona was then escorted to Kolleran without further delay.

    Wearing her signature green, white, and gold outfit with black bike shorts on under the skirt, Argent Gloves on her hands, Ranger Laser Rifle slung on her right shoulder, and Ses Revanche in her right boot, Leona had traveled lighter than usual. She had grabbed her gear in a hurry and thus did not bring her Adaptable Armor or her backpack of supplies, but she would manage without them. In between her weapons and her magic she had plenty of options in case there was fighting to be done. Leona had questioned the wisdom of bringing her Ranger Laser Rifle because few people besides Samira Nassar knew she even had it and she wanted to keep its existence secret for a little while longer, but the laser rifle was her best distance weapon and she would need it if there was any fighting today. Today the need for a good weapon surpassed the need for secrecy.

    When she was escorted to the outskirts of Kolleran and got her first look at the village she saw that Kolleran had been hit pretty hard. Most of the village had been burned to the ground and the unmistakable stenches of smoke and death lingered in the air, adding another unpleasant aspect to the already grim scene. Having grown up in Desierto and having repelled numerous bandit and slaver raids on her home village, Leona was inured to the sight of death, but she was affected by the scale of the death and destruction that had been visited on Kolleran. She had never seen anything like it before in her life... she briefly wondered what could have possibly caused so much destruction.

    Stranger Things 9hjimib

    Frigid eyes that directed a gaze deeply steeped in a cold glint of silent wrath scanned their surroundings, the man whom they belong to letting the glare continue to wander for a few moments more. Why had this happened and what had caused this? His mouth twisted in an expression of obvious displeasure, making it little of a mystery what he was feeling. The sight before him was gut-wrenching, the broken and charred remains of a village and its former inhabitants scattered around him. It reminded him more of a battlefield than a place people used to call their home, the thought momentarily bringing the young Rune Knight back to a certain snow-blanketed mountain pass in Pergrande. What a mess, honestly.

    Shen could barely hide his disdain, not just for this situation and the fact that he could do little to change it, but also the perpetrator of this horrid crime, swearing to himself that he would not let them off with a slap on the wrist. Originally, the young man named Shen Kadokawa had been sent here from Era as part of a contingent of Rune Knights, arriving just today and surveying the site of this crime for himself, though it seemed that most of the basic facts regarding what had occurred here had already been established by his colleagues. A desperate defense and struggle for survival rather than an actual battle, something that, as it seemed right now, the overwhelming majority of residents here in this village called Kolleran had paid for with their lives, practically slaughtered where they had stood. The stench of blood, smoke, and burned flesh still hung heavy in air. It only served to deepen Shen's already seething anger.

    Still, he knew that he had to stay calm and collected. What good would it be if he just lost his composure here and turned his back on it all? That wasn't why he had joined the Knights. It wouldn't make them proud. He took a deep breath, making sure he wouldn't do so through his nose to prevent the stench from turning his stomach upside down once again. He was here for a reason, after all, turning away from what looked like it used to be a house accommodating a family, now merely a burned out ruin. His destination was the command tent not far from where he had been. Before anything else, he knew that volunteers brought onto the scene to help with investigations would be arriving shortly, and he, too, had yet to receive a full briefing, intending to join whatever crowd would gather here and do whatever he could.

    "FOR MAD SCIENCE!! THIS IS EXHILARATING. SO GET EXCITED, YOU GUYS."




    It had been a while again since Faustein’s latest experience and adventure which had been the unfortunate and equally untimely dissolution of his erstwhile guild, Elysium, due to orders that had come from those who reigned from on high. Consequently, he had been forced to seek out a new guild to join and call home, and luckily for him, his labors to that end had borne fruit before long in the form of information he acquired about a certain independent aligned guild called Silver Wolf. So, since he did not wish to delay the matter further, he had headed off in search of the guild’s HQ aka the Silver Wolf guild hall.

    It had taken him a while to arrive due to the distance, but eventually, thanks to his S.P.A.T.E personal train, he had reached and found the guild hall in question. Once there, just as he had done before when joining Elysium, he finished all the necessary paperwork and other requirements for joining at the end of which he was granted the privilege of bearing the Silver Wolf guild tattoo on his person, thus marking him as one of its fold. After that, he had set about proving his worth to the Silver Wolf guild and because of his achievements, he was awarded a position within the department of the guild known for having talented magical researchers of all sorts, with a special focus on artifacts and treasures of all kinds, this department being known as “The Scholars”.

    In this manner, time had marched on for him once again since then and during this period that came after his joining the guild, he had once again returned to the grind of his daily routine which consisted, as always, of endless research followed by more endless research with the usual daily necessities falling by the wayside as per usual, leaving him looking haggard and sleep-deprived by the end of all that. It was a few days after all this had transpired that he had been roused by the distinctive notification sound that rang out from his iLac, namely that of the “Voices of War” special DLC from his favorite mobile game called “Oda Nobuna’s Ambition”, effectively dispelling his sleep-addled state.

    Hmm…Kolleran village…Clover Town…sudden attack…strange device…unknown blood…well now…this certainly seems…interesting…

    Faustein mused silently while awaiting the full boot-up process of his cyborg brain to reach completion after he arose from the smart table that had been serving as his bed and shuffled about his personal research lab at the Silver Wolf guild hall, getting himself ready to head out. It took him a while to do so, but he eventually managed to finish readying himself and was fully alert and dressed in his usual physician-scientist’s outfit, aka his work attire, by the end of it. Then, he proceeded to secure the various pieces of his vast magitek equipment collection which he usually took with him to use during any sort of mage work to his person in the series of load bearing, military-grade holsters that were strapped to his person and outfit all over in strategically advantageous spots. Finally, he placed his SHG-IV magitek smart glasses on his face and strapped his IIC spacetime transference chronograph to his left wrist as was his usual protocol after which he boarded his S.P.A.T.E personal train and let it take him all the way to Kolleran village, wondering what sort of intriguing and exciting adventure he would be undertaking during this impending adventure, the thought bringing his usual smug smirk to his thin, faintly cyanotic lips.

    It did not take too long for him to reach his destination since it was just outside Clover Town and there was not much traffic to speak of on the way there. Upon arrival, he was greeted by the now charred remnants of Kolleran village along with the forest near it and a bustle of activity from the Rune Knights who had apparently been called to the scene to investigate and resolve the issue.

    Let me see…if memory serves, there is supposed to be some sort of command station set up here, in a tent…ah yes, there it is…

    Faustein mused silently while looking about for the tent that was mentioned as being the rendezvous point for the volunteer mages and the Rune Knights who had summoned them for aid and found it after a few short moments thanks to his SHG-IV smart glasses and their environmental analysis function. Once that was done, he headed toward the tent and announced himself while also requesting permission for entry

    Dr. Stein reporting for volunteer duty for this incident as per the summons. Permission to enter?

    He spoke, revealing his voice to be a rich, baritone, and melodious one and his words were clear as well as concise with their standard emotionless, almost robotic tone as per usual whilst on a job whereas his face bore his usual completely inscrutable expression as he was not fazed in the slightest despite the swathe of destruction that lay all around him and the familiar stench of death that permeated the air in the vicinity as well. Finally, since his striking crimson red eyes were currently obscured by the polarized lenses of his SHG-IV smart glasses, the expression in his eyes was also not currently visible to the naked eye at present. Then he fell silent and waited to experience whatever would happen next in this situation.

    The twins had been taking a bit of a detour, as Grappa would be piloting their trusty GOLIATH unit as they sped towards the designated meeting area. Their companion would be a bit scrappy from his last big fall during the previous fight they were called to, but the girls were hopeful that he'd fare far better in this bout. Jellisha, conversely, would be resting on his shoulder as they sped across the land towards the town. The realization would only hit them as the two would draw near. Smoke would litter the air overhead, as Jellisha would idly sniff the air before being followed by shoving it into her nose. "Bleh, something's roasting up there." she commented, with Grappa coughing a few short times as she tried to get the scent out of her own system. It wasn't until that the two arrived with Kolleran on the horizon that gave them pause. The entire city had been brought to its knees, as trees would burn ever so brightly as the houses nearby would be alight with embers that the guards were desperately trying to control. "What...happened?" Grappa asked to nobody in particular while Jellisha would depart from their ride, shifting back into her Exceed form while speeding off towards the group. Her sister huffed while releasing her control from GOLIATH, its eyes burning bright while magic power would spark in the furnace, powering the machine with like as its creator would come to rest near the front of the set up headquarters. "C'mon, Golly." Grappa said, motioning for their mechanized friend to follow them towards the command center. Of course, he wouldnt be able to make the trip in, instead being parked outside while Grappa would give him the sign to stay while she followed her sister's trail.

    Jellisha would have already made her entrance, stepping into line while the crimson eyed girl would looked at everyone present. "General Sinclair, reporting in. What's the status on what's attacking people? Have all the civilians been evacuated yet?" her answered were a bit rushed, crossing her arms while easily having to stand on the tips of her boots to see up onto what everyone was gathering around. Grappa, in the meantime, would recognize Shen and quietly stand by him while her sibling did most of the talking. The task ahead of them was great, and it likely meant giving it their all to save the day yet again, but once again as dangerous as before. She's puff her cheeks out in worry and lean onto the boy, a quirk she had picked up from a while ago. It was more meant to reassure herself that allies wouldn't be downed without a fight, although she never could worry enough about her fellow Rune Knights. Her emerald eyes gazed up at Shen's while trying to lighten the mood. "Hey." she said in an optimistic but reasonable tone of a voice. One who knew that things were going to get a lot less nice. "We'll be okay if we stick together. We can do this." Reassuring words from somebody smaller than him, though it wasn't clear if the intention was meant for Shen moreso than herself.

    Michael Brooklyn Morgan "Red Alert"
    Stranger Things

    Michael had recently been dispatched to the rendezvous site after he was pushed and convinced by his twin brother, Francois, in helping the Rune Knights investigate the matter. Of course, no problems arose when his credentials were checked, since his twin was part of the Rune Knights. Yet he shouldn’t have bothered giving him the honorifics and title of the ‘Lord of Geo’ due to his excellent command in the elemental earth, yet the both of them knew this was impossible as he did not possess any magical power, but rather, he had the powers of psionics - telekinesis, geokinesis, the likes. The ability to manipulate matter to his whims with the power of his mind. He’s done a great job concealing his identity so far, though he does think the rest of the knights are aware of his powers. Conveniently, it wasn’t public knowledge so he was spared slanderous insults like ‘Pergrande Scum’, not that he paid them mind anyways as he was only doing his job as a professional mercenary.

    Kolleran was a place he was unfamiliar with, but he had heard of the name probably in the past year. While he did journey throughout Fiore as a mercenary, he did not have the mind to visit this quaint town as, to his knowledge, there was barely any job involving them. He could not make use of his Dimensional Telekinesis for a short cut, and has resorted to the old reliable bike. He was only a few malms away from the rendezvous point when he spotted several pillars of smoke billowing in the wind. He was apprised of the situation beforehand, but by the looks of it, the damage was massive. He had not seen casualties of this magnitude.

    On his way to the site, he was occasionally stopped by the stationed Rune Knights as he was assumed to be a civilian. Rightfully so, as he didn’t look like he was a mage, but he just assured them he was here as a volunteer, after which he was allowed to continue. The muffled vrooming sound of a bike could be heard, and upon arrival, one would see a figure riding a motorcycle with sleek design and it looked like it was made with cutting edge technology, something that came only from the Neutral Grounds. The figure sported a black leather biker’s jacket worn over a clean grey shirt, a pair of jeans, and black shoes. A black helmet obscured vision of his face, his identity unknown until he would take it off. The figure stopped as he arrived and took off his helmet, showing his long hair, a pair of red eyes, and a stubble beard. He was a familiar face to some, but not quite as his eye color and hair style were different from his other twin brothers, Francois and Ozwald. “Apologies if I’m late. I assume I’m in the right place for the volunteers?” He said to the rest of the mages on site, unsure if he was in the right place the Rune Knights sent him to. All he saw were unfamiliar faces, as he very rarely went on a job with another mage, let alone for an organization or a military force.

    One by one, the mages approached ground zero, both volunteers that had come in response to the request for aid as well as those who were active members of the Rune Knights called in as investigative back up. Each of them would be greeted swiftly upon their arrivals. Shen, Grappa, and Jellisha each were properly saluted by the knights not actively engaged in the investigation or moving bodies, while Leona and Owl were verified as expected volunteers. The only individual that was stopped before entry was Faustein. Since he had not followed the instructions of the summons to check in with a local garrison to have his identity and credentials verified in advance, he was not on the list of expected volunteers and as such was prevented from entering the crime scene at first. Only after checking his information and verifying his identity with Silver Wolf was he allowed to journey toward the tent.

    Each of them was ushered inside as they arrived. Within the confines of the moderately sized tent they would find a number of medical tables that appeared to have dead bodies resting on them, the silhouettes of the corpses outlined by the white sheets that covered them from head to toe. On the far side of the tent was another table that had a couple members of the Engineering department bent over a curious artifact, while others were bent over another table with microscopes. For now they would not be given the chance to look over any of these items as they were gestured toward the side of the tent where the current Knight in charge of the investigation was wrapping up giving updated instructions to one of his subordinates.

    He dismissed the lower ranked Knight once everyone was gathered and turned to face them, giving the three generals a brief salute before getting down to business. “Thank you all for coming. I am Major Rogan Price, head of this particular investigation. We have a lot of work to do, and a lot of dead bodies to be accounted for, so forgive me if I skip past pleasantries. I would like to get you all briefed and up to speed so you can get to work.

    “As you can clearly see, Kolleran was attacked with such force that nearly the entire village was wiped out. So far, we have found no survivors, but we are still searching. Our initial suspicion was a dark guild -- rogue mages are known to band together and pick on isolated towns such as these, where the Knights aren’t close enough to respond as quickly as we’d like. However, what little we have found so far has been difficult to identify. If this was a group of dark mages, they are unlike any group that we have come across before.

    “Each of you know your strengths better than I do, so rather than try to assign anyone to any particular task, I’m going to present the areas where we need the most assistance so you may lend your efforts in the area you feel best suited to you.” He pointed toward the bodies laid beneath sheets on the cold metal tables first. “Over there are a few victims that stood out to us. They have injuries on their bodies that don’t match any weapons or magics that we are aware of, though we suspect the wounds are related to the artifact we discovered.” Shifting his limb, he indicated the table with the strange device. “We also found traces of strange colored blood that we have not been able to identify. Any insight into that would be a welcome breakthrough.” By the motion of his hand, this was the evidence being studied at the second station where the microscopes were present.

    Once those stations were identified, he gestured toward the door of the tent. “Lastly, we are also in need of assistance in the field. Our primary goals at the moment are searching the town and the outlying woods for survivors as well as any other evidence that may have been missed in the initial sweep. Either of these items would be tantamount in giving us more information that could be crucial to confirming what we are dealing with here. If you need something or find anything at all, no matter how small it is, please flag down the closest Knight for assistance. Any questions?”

    He would give a brief pause to see if any of them needed further clarification on anything. Those who did not would be dismissed to head to the task that interested them the most.

    "FOR MAD SCIENCE!! THIS IS EXHILARATING. SO GET EXCITED, YOU GUYS."




    Before too long, Faustein watched on as everyone else who had been summoned to help with the conduct of the incident investigation at Kolleran started to gather near the tent. The others were let in without incident, but apparently, he was the only one among them who had been remiss in following the proper pre-arrival protocol of checking in with the local Rune Knight garrison for the purpose of identity verification, so he had to undergo those additional steps before he could be let inside the command post tent that had been set up by the Rune Knights for everyone as a rendezvous point. Afterwards, however, he was granted permission to enter at which point he did just that.

    Hmm…quite the motley crowd we have here…and the scene looks quite fascinating as well…this should be rather intriguing, indeed…

    Faustein mused silently as he stepped inside the tent and followed along with the rest of those called to the scene, and this time he was sure to follow all the proper steps so he would not have to go through any extra effort later due to oversight. In short order, he and the rest were gathered before the one who seemed to be the overseer of the operation at hand and this Rune Knight began his narrative, going through and gesturing as well as explaining the scene that stood before them inside that tent. Faustein listened as the Rune Knight in question also mentioned that there would not be any formal personnel to task assignments and that each of those who had been called to assist with the incident investigation were free to choose how to direct their energies towards the progression of said investigation.

    Hmm, where to start, I wonder?

    Faustein mused silently further as he continued to listen to the last few remarks the Rune Knight had to give which were basically him asking if there was anyone who had any further questions to ask before commencing their assistance efforts and dismissing those that did not to go do their work as they saw fit. So, Faustein raised his hand to draw attention to himself while simultaneously speaking in that same rich baritone and melodious voice of his, ensuring to maintain a neutral tone throughout his query

    Dr. Stein here, regarding the artifact that was discovered at the scene and that now lies on that table there…was it noticed by the residents before the attack, perhaps? Or was it only discovered after this incident had finished transpiring?

    Then, Faustein fell silent and waited patiently for the Rune Knight to answer with whatever details he had to offer about said artifact’s time of discovery, all the while maintaining his completely neutral expression from before.

    -Inside the tent-

    Shortly after her arrival Leona was ushered into a moderately sized tent along with the other volunteers and quietly looked at her surroundings. On one side of the tent was a number of medical tables that had bodies lying on them that were covered with sheets. On the far side of the tent were a couple of Rune Knights busy examining what looked like an artifact plus more Rune Knights bent over tables examining something under microscopes, but Leona soon faced forward so that she did not stumble over something and fall in front of everyone. Shortly after facing forward she saw a gesture towards a section of the tent where one Rune Knight was speaking to another.

    Leona obeyed the unspoken command and walked along with the other volunteers until she eventually came into the presence of a Rune Knight who was now standing alone. He introduced himself as Major Rogan Price and skipped the usual pleasantries in favor of briefing the volunteers on everything the Rune Knights knew so far and then getting them to work. Leona kept her mouth shut and faced forward the entire time Major Price was speaking.

    By listening carefully she learned that the Knights had an unconfirmed suspicion that a guild of Dark mages was responsible for the village's destruction. Leona also learned that there were three major tasks the Rune Knights needed help with. Since the major did not know the strengths of each volunteer, the volunteers would not be assigned to a particular task. Instead the volunteers themselves were permitted to choose which one to assist with.

    The first major task was examining the wounds of a few victims of the attack. Major Price stated that the wounds on the victims did not match those caused any weapons or magic they were aware of. He then added that the Rune Knights suspected that an "artifact" they had discovered might be connected to the cause of the wounds.

    The second major task was identifying "strange-colored" blood that the Rune Knights were not able to identify. That bit of information explained the presence of the microscopes. He then gestured towards the door of the tent.

    The third and final major task was searching for survivors and evidence that might have gone unnoticed during the initial sweep in the aftermath of the village's destruction. If she needed help or if she found anything at all, she was instructed to call upon the nearest Rune Knight for assistance.

    Leona quietly chose to join the search for survivors because it was the one best suited to her abilities and skillset. She had winged summons who could help her search for survivors from the air. She had a Jackal summon to sniff out survivors and clues on the ground. Furthermore, she had a natural night vision mode that activated whenever she went into dark places or when night fell, so darkness was no serious obstacle to her search.

    Once the major had gone over the three most important tasks he opened the floor for questions. Leona carefully thought through any potential questions she could come up with, but the major had already answered them. Since she could not think of any questions that were relevant to the search for survivors, the Wizard Saint kept quiet and let the other volunteers ask questions.

    It did not take long for the Rune Knight to reach the tent, the man pushing aside the thick sheets of fabric that formed the entrance to find several of his fellow Rune Knights in the sizeable space behind him, not failing to notice the bodies covered by white sheets, the obvious shape underneath the material instantly giving away their nature. That was not the only thing that caught his eye, of course, his gaze briefly wandering over the group busy intently studying an unknown object not too far away. It seemed that the Knights had really not spared any effort for this one, huh? Shen corrected a previous assumption in his mind that he had made before coming here, understanding now that the assistance and expertise of specialists may be necessary where previously he had found the idea of bringing any more weaklings onto this scene rather distasteful. If any danger still lingered, he thought, then it would simply be irresponsible to bring civilians into what was essentially a battleground, but that was irrelevant now. If this was the only way to find out what the hell had happened here, the only way to bring whoever was responsible for this to justice, then so be it. It made sense, then, that so many high-ranking knights had been dispatched. Better safe than sorry.

    Before he had much more time to think, he was swiftly joined by more people, who, one after the other, would find their way into the tent, though the young man recognized only a pair of the new arrivals, two girls, or at least, that's what they appeared as. It was, of course, the Exceed twins that, for all intents and purposes, were his equals in rank, being Generals of the Knights' Engineering Division while Shen occupied the same position in the organization's Compat Corps. Incidentally, Grappa and Jellisha, as they were called, also bore the same last name as the Rune Knights' Field Marshal, though the young man didn't know if, or in what sense, they were connected. He would have to ask Serilda about that some time. Shen had been briefly introduced to them before as part of his promotion, though he knew almost nothing about them or their capabilities. Still, he would greet the familiar pair with a curt and neutral "Hello", although it seemed that didn't much deter one of the two to approach him and freeze by his side, Shen's head swerving downwards only to meet her gaze.

    Was she ... trying to reassure him? The young man couldn't help but find that scenario somewhat ironic, given the fact that he needed little reassurance, though he didn't wish to say so to the girl, opting to instead reinforce her statement. His words, however, were spoken with the same emotionless tone as before, and while his intentions were nothing but earnest and straightforward, his delivery masked that fact somewhat. "Certainly. I'll guarantee as much". His eyes would briefly wander over the other arrivals, a woman that seemed to carry a whole load of equipment with her, a man that looked like he would be better suited to any random gang of street thugs than a crime scene, and a guy who appeared like any arrogant run of the mill scientist type. Was this really the best the magical society had to offer? Well, it didn't matter much. Maybe they were all capable in their own right. Shen would guarantee their safety, in any case. He had sworn to himself that he would not let anyone else die, after all...

    Including the three generals, this appeared to be all who would find their way here for a briefing, one of the Rune Knights, a certain Major Rogan Price, recognizing as much before beginning with his explanations, Shen returning the man's salute briefly when the other had raised his arm in the familiar greeting, thereafter listening carefully to the man's detailed explanation. So that was the situation, huh? Worse than the young Rune Knight general had initially assumed, admittedly, but not so much that things were escalating ... for the time being. Briefly, Shen pondered where exactly his skills would be best used, though it was clear that he was not especially useful for either dealing with some artifact they were currently researching or the examination of the bodies. Scouting the surroundings, however, was much more suited to his abilities, the man making the decision to searching the town and the surrounding area would be the best course of action for him.

    "Thank you for your explanation, Major", Shen would reply when the man asked for questions, giving the other a firm nod before turning towards the tent's entryway, indicating that he had no further questions while simultaneously addressing the rest of those present. "I'll handle the search outside, if you don't mind. Anyone who wishes to join me can do so at their leisure". His gaze would first fall onto the Rune Knight who had so superbly explained the situation, then to the others present here, awaiting feedback from those interested in volunteering for scout duty so they could try and formulate a plan of action.

    Michael Brooklyn Morgan "Red Alert"
    Stranger Things

    It would appear that he was the final person to arrive in the rendezvous area, and he was expecting that there would be more volunteers considering the scope of the operation. He thought otherwise, looking at the Rune Knights working with their own job in the area, and thought there were only a few capable knights with specialized sets of skills, evident with the involvement of the twins, with one of them introducing themselves as a general which only made their identity known to him as part of the higher ranking officials of the Rune Knights. He also thought of the red haired man to be a high ranking officer, his assumption derived from his interaction with the twins. The rest, he thought of as very capable volunteers if they were given the approval to meet with the team, including one who looked like a scientist.

    Expecting no more volunteers, he along with the rest was ushered into the tent. He saw dead people lying on the medical tables, their visage and faces veiled by white sheets of cloth. Being surrounded with dead people is something he was already used to, so there was no reason for him to feel dread or nauseated at the sight of lifeless husks. After all, he was a soldier, and mayhap jaded after all the stuff he went through before his psionic reawakening. And at the far end of the tent was a group of specialists and an artifact, both of which were not of interest to him. He would then be escorted to meet with someone who introduced themselves as Major Rogan Price, who apprised them of the situation on their arrival, something he was glad of because he’d also want to skip the formalities if something pressing was going on.

    He listened intently to the briefing of the major. He heard the possibility of the involvement of a dark guild, something he is already used to. Yet he can’t help but feel a little sense of dread after his previous kerfuffle with an amazonian woman, which left him half alive after they exchanged blows. He eased himself, reassuring himself that he’s already gotten stronger. He was also given the freedom to choose which task served him best, and after hearing their primary goal, he thought it best if he used his Soldier’s Gambit for the task at hand. He did not have any questions, and thought it would be in his best interests to scout the area for any more survivors.

    “Then I’ll be coming with you, if you’ll have me.” He said to the red haired man in response, intent on teaming up with him in their efforts to locate any survivors or anything of particular interest in regards to the mystery of the attack. He had already left the tent to prepare for the search operation, and thought it best if he dressed for the job. With a few mental commands, threads and pieces of armor coalesced around him to form his exosuit and formed a more toned figure and impeccable asset, after which a few red hexagonal sigils appeared around him. Pieces of his Hound Infantry armor protruded from the hexes, connecting themselves to the ports around his exosuit. His helmet was the last piece of armor to be worn as a hexagon appeared above his head, and the helmet dropped down to connect itself with the armor’s circuitry, after which the armor’s assembly was complete.

    He laid out a 3d live projection of the current state of Kolleran for him and the red haired man to see. The dots laid out on the map were that of creatures, and he has already started bookmarking those around the camp as “Rune Knights” in cerulean blue color, while the rest he labelled as “Volunteers” in sapphire blue. He can’t say the same for the rest of the dots within the city as it could be Rune Knights or forest critters who made their way in the ruined town. This does help with the strategizing along with the red haired Rune Knight, if he’s interested in using the map.

    The options were laid before them, with each Knight or volunteer being given the choice to move themselves wherever they believed they would be most useful. Most everyone seemed to decide where they wanted to go fairly quickly, with only one question being posed by Faustein regarding when the artifact had been discovered. “As I explained, so far we have found no survivors. So unless anyone here happens to be a necromancer or able to communicate with the dead, there’s no way of knowing if the item was in the village before the attack or if it was brought in during. Right now the leading theory is that it was used in the attack by whomever carried out this massacre.”

    There seemed to be no more questions. Shen announced his intention to search outside for survivors, and it seemed two of the others were intent on joining him. The major nodded his understanding. “Anywhere you want to start is fine, as it wouldn’t hurt to go over some of the areas we’ve already searched with a fresh eye in case we missed anything. However, my suggestion would be to either head for the mountains east of the river, or to head along the eastern coast in the direction of the canyons just south of the mountain range. Both of these areas are going to require an extensive search, and there are a lot of places survivors could have holed up. But, there’s also a lot of places that the attackers could be hiding as well. Please proceed with caution.”

    OUTSIDE THE TENT

    The trip toward the mountains and the canyons would be along mostly the same route through the forest. As they got further and further from the village, signs of an altercation became less and less common. Soon, the only signs they had that anyone may have come through the area recently would be found in the form of disturned grass or broken twigs that could have been evidence of wildlife as much as people. It wasn’t until they started reaching the point where the path would branch off in separate directions depending on where they planned on searching that they would find something new.

    Laying half covered by a patch of grass was a pair of broken reading glasses. There was a bit of dried red blood on them to suggest that the glasses had been broken before their owner had lost them. However, nothing immediately stood out to indicate what direction the owner had gone in. For the moment, Michael’s suit seemed to only be pointing out native animals nearby, each of them keeping a wide berth from their little group. A deeper search of the immediate area would have to be done in order to turn up more potential information.

    INSIDE THE TENT

    Presuming that Faustein had no more questions, he would soon find himself at the table where other members of the Engineering department of the Rune Knights were gathered around the artifact in question. Now that he was up close and personal with it, he would find that it was quite unique. It bore a striking resemblance to a firearm of some kind, but not like any that had been documented on Earthland before. It seemed almost organic in nature, sporting a reddish brown color with spikes the color of charcoal pointed down the barrel of the weapon, giving it a sort of burnt look.

    One of the Knights nodded as he approached. “Hey there,” she told him, “I’m Sergeant Krissy Mayweather. Feel free to just call me Kris. I assume if you’re here then you’re one of the volunteers that’s a bit handy with tech. Please put on a pair of gloves.” Kris nodded toward a small carton on the side of the table that had a few rubber gloves inside like the ones she and the second Knight with her were using. “We haven’t been able to uncover too much just yet. It’s clearly a pistol or rifle of some kind, but there doesn’t appear to be an obvious firing mechanism, nor have we been able to determine any kind of power source. As much as we don’t want to just yet, we’re starting to think we may have to find a way to break it open to get more details.” Once Faustein had put on his gloves, Kris would offer him the weapon to look over for himself.

    NOTES : In this next round with your posts, please be as detailed as possible about WHERE or HOW you are conducting your searches, and what kind of things you are looking for. Feel free to utilize your magics in creative ways to conduct your searches, even if you aren't using pre-approved spells. Right now I am just looking for creativity. From here on out, it should be the actions of your characters driving the story forward, and I will facilitate the narrations based on the directions you take.

    -On the road east-

    Once the volunteers were dismissed to go about their work Leona left the tent and joined up with two of the volunteers who were also going to look for survivors and clues. One of them was a well-dressed red-headed fellow and the other was a fellow wearing fancy high-tech armor. Due to the nature of their mission, Leona did not waste time with small talk but instead focused on looking for survivors and clues that might have been missed in the initial search in the aftermath of the attack on Kolleran.

    As the trio traveled Leona looked at the surroundings for clues. All she could glean from glancing around was that the further from the village she got the less she saw of any signs of conflict. Eventually it got to a point where the only signs that anyone had traveled through the area were broken twigs lying on the grass or patches of grass that had been disturbed, but that was hardly conclusive evidence that humans had been through here. Animals could have easily made those marks. It was a forest area, after all... a lot of animals lived in it.

    Leona was not a trained investigator nor did she have any high-tech armor like her fellow volunteer, but she did have summons that could help her search for anything that might stand out. Now that they were well outside Kolleran she could use the Black-Backed Jackal to sniff out clues without the stench of smoke and death interfering with his sensitive nose like it would have closer to the village. But first she would call upon her eye in the sky to get a bird's-eye view of the area.

    Leona stopped and silently raised her left hand to the sky, telepathically summoning her Pharaoh Eagle-Owl. She then extended her left arm out in front of her and if her fellow volunteers turned to look, they would see a sand-colored owl glide towards her outstretched arm before landing on the Argent Glove. Eventually Ramses landed and looked at Leona.

    "Ramses, I need you to fly overhead and look for anything out of the ordinary. People, bloodstains on the ground, tents that might have been set up, anything that doesn't blend in with the forest." Leona instructed her summon. Ramses turned his head and wordlessly took off to begin looking for clues. Now that Ramses was airborne it was time to call in the Jackal to assist Leona on the ground.

    Leona silently raised her left hand to the sky and telepathically summoned her Black-Backed Jackal. He appeared at her feet and looked up at Leona.

    "I need you to sniff around for any scents, preferably human." Leona informed the Jackal. He lowered his nose to the ground and began to sniff about for a few moments, then turned back to Leona.

    "I smell a lot of scents. Mostly animals, though. It'll take some effort for me to be able to pick out any human scents." The Jackal notified her in a voice audible to the other volunteers. Leona remained silent as the Jackal went back to sniffing both the air and the ground for any human scents. After a minute or two of waiting in silence for the Jackal to alert her to anything the four-legged summon began briskly walking towards a patch of grass to the right and roughly six meters from where she was standing. Leona began to follow it and it stopped and turned to face her.

    "I think I smell something human!" The Jackal alerted Leona before spinning around to face forward and continuing to walk at a brisk pace. The Wizard Saint followed close behind him and after a brief walk spotted something lying half-covered in the grass. Ramses was also flying circles around the object a few feet above it.

    Leona carefully approached the object and stopped a short distance from it, then leaned over and noticed that they were a pair of ordinary reading glasses... well, not entirely ordinary. They were broken and she saw what looked like dried blood on them. There were no obvious signs of where the owner had went. Since they were evidence and she did not want to ruin it, Leona immediately took a big step back and away from them.

    "Please stay away from the glasses. They're evidence." Leona requested of the Jackal, who was sniffing close to them. He obediently backed away and stood to Leona's left while Ramses gained altitude and continued his search for people and clues from the air, flying in a wide circle in the sky. Leona turned around and raised her right arm, then waved her right hand above her head at her fellow volunteers to get their attention.

    "I found something! A pair of broken glasses!" Leona called out to them to notify them of what she and her summons had found.
