The group traveled for a few days through the Talenta Plains without encountering anything, except for the occasional diseased animal that they dispatched quickly. Eventually they saw a few small buildings and 3 guard towers in the distance. When they arrived there, guards asked them what their business was and they said they were trying to reach Odilimarah’s Haven for shelter and respite. The guards said welcome and pointed to a cave hole by one of the houses.
The group made their way through the cave that led down for about 20 minutes. Eventually the tunnel opened up into this colossal cavern where buildings were delved into the rock-face and people were milling around together. Farms of fungus and actual crops that had the daylight spell cast over them were growing in the distance. In the center of the town as a large lake that was emitting a soft greenish glow.
The group asked around and eventually were directed to the office of a man named De Pan, who basically found this city and led people here about 4 years ago. After introducing themselves and showing themselves capable of surviving in the wilds, De Pan asked if he could use their services to help fortify Odilimarah’s Haven. The group agreed and for 2-3 weeks (in game) helped with things that were more mundane; finding food, helping with the farming, gathering wood, etc. While this was going on the group heard word from others on how they arrived, what has been going on in the world, etc.
Eventually the group was called to see De Pan again. He described that an old shaman that lives in the town that had (and I’m shortening this) had a vision and saw a crashed airship on a mountain and he believes he knows where it is.
When the group asked why this was so important, De Pan merely smiled and said, “Because if we obtain it, it will help with a mission that is of the utmost importance…”
“Which is?” Said Kaius cautiously.
“Saving the world, of course…” Said De Pan.
