The reconnaissance mission only seemed to give Arandael more questions than answers in regards to the enemy that they faced. A small contingent of the Sunrunner Guard rode carefully through the humid swamp, eyes open
A small contingent of the Sunrunner Guard rode carefully through the humid swamp, eyes open for any signs of the enemy or any of their allies. The slow trek through the swamp uneventful, the conversation was somber and limited, most of their attention focused on their environment.
It was when they split off at the abandoned village of Surwich that some fruit was discovered for their labor. Sairys’ keen eye caught the glint of metal amidst the red ground of the Blasted Lands. Speculated to be a piece of armor off of one of the invading orcs, a thin piece of expensive red fabric and a thick chain were discovered nearby.
Questions remained unanswered as they tried and failed to place the metal that they found, and the cloth itself had no telltale insignia to tell them who it could possibly belong to.
Pleased to return with something that might give them some clue to their enemy, the scouting group turned back toward Maldraz.
