Scarlet Von Trinsic Tests Kijustsu Anei Village Kijustsu Anei Village, Homare-Jima February 4, 2010
All was quiet on the island of Homare-Jima. Shops began to close and people returned to their homes and in some cases their forts. What was thought of as another day ended turned into its beginning. One of the Inhabitants of Kijustsu Anei was setting up the new alert system implemented by the Kijustsu Anei Village Intendant, Luna Rossa. A loud battle cry was heard and as they turned around they gazed upon a army of Orcs, Orge Lords and Ettins marching down the street of Monk's Crossing!!! Many quickly made their way to the strongest building in the village. The Kijustsu Anei Intendant building. Kijustsu Anei Village government must be kicking themselves, for not having that alert system setup in time for such an attack upon their land.
By word of mouth news spread across the land. The creatures attacks came from all over. Savages, Sages, Paladins, Warriors, Knights even drunken Friers answered to the call. The forces took some time to get under control but, they were able to defeat the incoming army of Orcs and more. Once the battle was finished many questions were left. Why have orcs and other creatures attacked the land? Who were they attacking? Were they after Samantha Kent? Were they sent to PaxOku or Village? Did the Savages have some unknown war going on?
Just as everyone began to gather to discuss what was going on a lady appeared before them. Standing on top of the banner she was identified as Scarlet Von Trinsic. People in crowed began to get angry. They quickly figured out that Scarlet was the one behind this invasion. Scarlet jumped down off of the banner to address them all. Niva was not very thrilled as Scarlet made her way towards them.
”Should thank me Savage. I just sent over a clan of your enemies to their death...A mere test. ”
Mirt responded, ”Why do we not just throw her in jail? ”
”Jail!? That’s rich. I’ve not an evil bone in my body. It’s about opportunity. Funny ya know. A horde of orcs besieges thy town And where is the Queen’s army?” You could tell those around started to wonder. “Noooowheree…….. Perched up in her castle drinking Winfield’s wine likely. Dreadful stuff by the way. Swiped a few bottles from the courier and let me tell ya. I’ve had swamp water with a better taste. Well, no matter. Guess ya just have to watch out for yourself these days. ”
The crowd began to chatter amongst themselves. Has the Queen abandoned them? Do they no longer have the protection they require? Few moments later Gareth asked… “Would you be able to provide any protection? ”
”Ahhh Now we’re talkin’ Everything has a price."
Niva in a strong tone had a question of her own. “What human Red have offer Village? ”
“And no amount of gold will satisfy my thirst. Oh I’ll see your village is safe alright But it will cost you. All about the intangibles my dear. I ask when the time is right to answer my call. I do say though… Caveat Emptor….”
As everyone once again began to talk amongst themselves. Many in attendance yelled that they were making a deal with the devil but, how could one devil resist another devils offer? A voice informed Von Trinsic that they would need to inform the Intendant who is the leader of their village.
”Discuss it amongst your peoples. When I return next, I expect your response. Ta ta for now gents!"
Scarlet Von Trinsic quickly vanished. The words of Scarlet Von Trinsic would weigh heavily on their minds tonight. Some did not know what Caveat Emptor meant. Caveat Emptor - buyer beware without a warranty the buyer takes the risk. Is the Kijustsu Anei community intrigued with this offer? We shall see.
