Your quest, delivered by an exhausted Breeze Ranger:
- Put an end to the conflict between the Adventure Giants and Cyclone Ents
Any adventuring party of note tends to attract stories, but the tallest tales are reserved for the Adventure Giants - merry bands of 20-foot wanderers who go round slaying dragons, toppling necromancers’ towers, and diving into whatever dungeons have enough ceiling clearance.
While they’re generally a force for good, they have a habit of fighting instead of talking their way out of trouble. This has landed them deep in the territory of the Cyclone Ents, protectors of the Winding Woodland. None too pleased at the intruders’ attitude, the Ents have cornered the Giants and - with a flick of their boughs - are sending screaming gales into the adventurers’ encampment.
The Giants seem capable of holding their own - but in the meantime, the forest and local weather systems are in turmoil. Someone needs to go into broker peace, but braving the forest risks impalement on any number of stray gusts and sharp branches. Not to mention, you’ll need a way to ensure the attention and respect of these titans.
Your quest, should you choose to accept it:
- Best the Hope Pirate and end their reign over the Dimple Desert: Approaching the conflict zone through the air would be the safest option - slightly less fatal than the forest, at any rate. Hiring someone to fly you in wouldn’t be cheap considering the danger, so it’d be easiest to seek help from a friend who can get you what you need. Now, where did they last say they were off exploring?
- Break into the Ethical Airship:
Your companion knows of just the craft for your mission -
the Ethical Airship has no steering system, instead following its powerful Moral Compass when it learns that people need help. The Airship’s captain, well-meaning as they are, is on a tight schedule - you’ll have to sneak on and redirect the ship yourselves.
- Put an end to the conflict between the Adventure Giant and Cyclone Ent peoples in the Stand of Length: While the ents and giants are more than ready for a protracted fight, it’s destroying the livelihoods of those who live around the forest. Stage a perfect arrival on the scene to put a halt to the fighting, then while you have their attention convince both parties to de-escalate.
