4-14-08 Our story begins with the meeting of the Five. Each of them has a part to play in the future of Shaintar and as they meet and discuss their plans they realize each of them has been marked with the White Hand. Each of them represents the fingers of a hand that when banded together makes a fist of great power. Each player gave a rousing speech at the Council and were rewarded with gifts and prophecies about the coming War of Flame.
The Speaker sang a song of prophecy and read an epic poem of Light & Life that strengthened the group and equipped them with knowledge of the creatures of Flame. Afterwards they met with Sgt. Guz who was heading back to Kythros. He recognized the twins from their earlier service in the Rangers and extended an invitation to the group to join the Grey Rangers. He also told them of trouble in Five Cross and asked them to investigate.
As the group headed to Five Cross they were attacked late one night by a group of wolves lead by a huge Werewolf. After a narrow victory and the loss of several horses they determined that tracks they found in the wilderness led away from the group and there were more creatures of Darkness following them... They were determined to get to Five Cross and find the owner of the tracks later.
