New Tier 7 Crusader: Umut, the Elemental Chimera

Tags: Event, Support, Demon, Dragon, Good, Evil, Male, Female, Supernatural, Gold, Royal


Heat, searing down on you. The prickle of sweat dripping down your neck and evaporating off your exposed skin. The azure water lapping the stony shore of the beach below you looks tempting, but you're uncertain if it's safe for you to take a swim in it. You turn your attention back to the path beneath your feet as you continue to climb up the craggy hill, the slightly lighter brown dust the only indication it is actually a path. You carefully make your way to the summit, only occasionally wishing that the portal for this world had let you out closer to the spot indicated on the mysterious invitation you received, though when you reach the top and check your watch, you discover you're early.

Gazing at the sky while you recover your breath a little, you note some clouds moving towards you that you hadn't seen earlier. In fact, the sky is starting to darken more than should be possible as the clouds near the summit, the gust of metallic-smelling wind bringing them also churning the water below. Thunder starts to rumble and you glance around urgently for shelter, but there's nothing to be had.

You try to head back down the path, to not be the tallest thing around, but an invisible force keeps you on the summit. You crouch down, arms over your head and eyes closed, hoping against all hopes, but the summit fills with light as the lightning strikes, followed by a fierce crack of thunder. Curiosity gets the better of you and you open your eyes to take a peek.

A large bulky shape looms in the fog that now covers the summit, but the wind is still blowing strong, so the fog blows off quickly, revealing the mass. Three pairs of eyes meet your gaze from three separate heads.

"Leaving so soon?" the lion-looking head asks. "The meeting hasn't even started yet."

You stand up so you can get the invitation out of your pocket. "You're Umut, the Elemental Chimera?"

The snake-looking head nods at you. "Indeed. Thank you for coming."

"It's not every day an invitation randomly shows up hovering in an air bubble," you answer, shrugging. "I figured it would be worth investigating."

"Just the sort of response we like," the goat-like head chimes in. "We shall join you."

You blink and take a second to think. "Wait, what?"

Umut walks closer to you and all three heads look at you again. The lion one speaks, "We are ready to travel and have new adventures and someone who answers mysterious invitations is bound to have some good adventures. We will come with you."

You meet the gaze of each head in turn, noting the fangs glittering in their mouths and the claws on their paws. Another lightning bolt strikes the summit across from you. "Of course," you swallow. "You seem to be just what we need for our adventures as well."

All three of Umut's heads break out into wide grins. "Agreed," the heads chorus as one.

Umut, the Elemental Chimera has joined the party. When you want to use them, you can find them in seat 35.

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Farmer Brown

    Tags: Event, Male, Human, Flora, Support, Gold, Magical, Angel


    Farmer Brown was a very fine farmer. He watched over his fields, tending them with attentiveness, rotating fields every few years, rotating the crops in those fields, even reading them bedtime stories over the PA system. His vegetables were known as the best and biggest in the area and though other farmers asked for his secrets, they just couldn't implement them as well as he did.

    That might have been because of the other secret to his success: magic!

    Though one day, tragedy struck and Farmer Brown lost control of his combine, leading to an unfortunate accident. Thankfully, his beloved crops merged with his body and resurrected him. Though his community was a little wary around him now.

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Audre DeLarveie

    Tags: Event, Dwarf, Elf, Female, Support, Gold


    A long time ago, and just around the corner in a cozy little cottage, a dwarf and an elf loved each other very much and they had a daughter, whom they named Audre. They raised her with love and taught her to be kind and polite, but polite doesn't mean agreeing with everything people ask of her. She also developed a backbone.

    One day, you're walking along the street and past the cottage where Audre is sitting outside with a table and a stack of pamphlets.

    "Could I talk to you about people's rights?" she asks, holding out a pamphlet to you.

    Intrigued, you read the pamphlet a bit. "This is really well-thought-out. What's the catch?"

    She grimaces. "What do you mean, catch? Everyone deserves fair treatment, no matter their background or views, but we're not there yet. There's still more work to do."

    You think about it for a second. "That makes sense. We could use your spirit," you say. "Wanna come with us? We travel through a lot of universes, you could get your message spread pretty far."

    Audre crosses her arms and thinks for a minute, looking at her cottage. "March with pride across the multiverse? Count me in. Hannah, I'm going on an adventure!"

    Hannah stepped out of the cottage and walked over to Audre and you. "Of course you are," she said, giving Audre a hug and kiss. "But come back from time to time, all right? I'll miss you."

    "A herd of stampeding alien trash pandas couldn't keep me away," Audre smirked. "I'll come back in my downtime." Turning to you, she said, "Let's go!"

    Audre has joined the party.

    Tags: Event, Robot, Male, Tank, Good, Support, Healing


    "Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the half-time show!"

    The lights dim, the music starts to play and a rainbow disco ball is lowered from the ceiling…and keeps getting lower. A few feet from the stage on the field, the ball drops out of the air and lands to reveal a turtle with sparkly scales.

    "Get ready for a flava bomb," he cries into the mic and the field fills with dancers.

    Unfortunately, the dancers are wearing fruit costumes, and some of them are watermelons. The turtle's eyes glow red and he jumps off the stage.

    The half-time show ends up giving a new meaning to the Carnage Cup.

    You and your fellows manage to escape the stadium. Just before you're going to portal away, Chef Casey coughs. "Can my new friend come?" she asks.

    "New friend?"

    She shuffles aside guiltily, revealing the sparkly turtle. "TUR7L3 didn't mean to do it….plus his skills would come in handy."

    The turtle's eyes turn into hearts temporarily. "Please?"

    There was definitely carnage in there…"Sure, why not," you reply.

    Tags: Event, Female, Supernatural, Support, Human, Animal


    Ahh, relaxation.

    The feel as the warm sand hugs your toes with each step you take. The pleasant warm embrace of the heat of the day. The sound and smell of the surf as the waves crash on the beach. The cool moisture on the glass of your favourite drink in your hand. The haunting red-orange glow of the water and the sinking sun. Paradise.

    Your ears perk as you catch the faint strains of music and you take off along the beach to find the source. Rounding the bend your first sight is wings, though a lot of your friends have wings so it's no longer a huge shock. Next you see the lyre in their hands, being expertly played though the song comes to an end as you watch.

    Shaking your head to clear a bit of fog (which might have come from your drink, but you're not certain) you finally notice the crowd gathered around the musician. She's definitely something special, luring a large chunk of resort guests to her impromptu concert. She starts to play again and the trance returns.

    Soon, the music is finally over, and you realize it's now really dark and you've sat down on the sand at some point. The crowd has also dispersed and it's just you and the musician now.

    "Sorry, didn't mean to overdo it," she says. "I just wanted you to stick around for a moment. I sensed something...different about you. You seem well traveled."

    "You could say that," you quip. "I've gotten around." You notice she's put the lyre back in its case, and the night is silent but for the waves.

    She follows your gaze. "No coercion this time. I've learned to prefer honest answers to my questions."

    "And what question would you ask?"

    "Can I join your travels? I'm looking for an adventure…"

    You hesitate a second and look at the ground. "Well, we've already got a lot of musicians in our group--" Your words are cut off as you feel the scaly texture of talons around your throat.

    "You were saying?" she asks with a cock of her head, and the talons relax a little.

    You swallow nervously. "What happened to no coercion?" She just smirks.

    You reach out your free hand. "Welcome aboard."

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Springy, the Patchwork Plush

    Tags: Event, Support, Gold, Animal, Male, Supernatural


    A new day, a new planet. You've been trekking through the tangled weeds, grasses and trees from the portal opening when you almost trip on a hard flat object in the ground. Glancing around, you see the foliage isn't as dense and you can make out a structure in the distance. As you approach, you note a sign that says " G M L" on it mounted on the side of the structure.

    You see a door and step inside, smelling an oddly familiar cinnamon and popcorn scent on the stale air. It's an alien mall! And some franchises are just that powerful. You walk in further, eyes adjusting to the gloom of dirty skylights.

    A rustling noise draws your attention. Something seems to be approaching you. As it gets closer you hear a rhythmic thumping and the tinkle of something metal hitting the tile floor. It thumps into a brighter patch of light and you see a kangaroo plushie made of assorted fabrics just before it jumps on you and you thud to the floor.

    "Friend?" the creature asks.

    "If I say yes, will you get off me?"

    The kangaroo ducks their head and carefully steps off you. "Sorry. It's been ages since someone visited."

    "You're here all alone?"

    The kangaroo hops. "There's the occasional mouse that I stomp on, but they don't talk, so they don't count."

    You scratch your head. "My friends and I are travellers, and we're a pretty large band. In the spirit of the season, would you like to join us?"

    "Would I still get to stomp things?" they ask.

    You smile. "Definitely."

    Springy, the Patchwork Plush has joined your party.

    Blackness.

    Slowly, as your eyes adjust to the surroundings, you notice a faint hint of light seemingly floating above the ground.

    Curious, you move closer to the light source, but are puzzled at the cold mist enveloping your legs, and as you're bopped on the head by a stick of some sort.

    Two more light sources have joined the faint glow and they illuminate a snout full of teeth.

    "No further please," a feminine voice says and then the light vanishes again.

    The stick on your head starts to warm up and memories of your comrades standing beside you as you fling items at monsters stream through your head.

    "Oooh, throwing things is fun," she says, and you feel the stick removed from your head. "I will join you."

    The blackness immediately lightens and you see your new friend asleep on a cloud with a bundle of bamboo nearby. Time for another magical adventure.

      Under full moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart!

    New Tier 7 Crusader: Xochitl, La Llorona

    Rayna, Snickette and Morrigan were off hiking in a forest they'd found on the edge of a desert, exploring the interesting foliage and chatting away. The sun, still visible through the canopy, bathed the trees in a warm glow.

    As they ventured further down the path, Rayna started getting an eerie feeling and glanced around, but all she noted was that the light seemed a little less bright. She watched as Snickette and Morrigan ran forward to investigate a stream that ran alongside the path and her feeling of wrongness grew stronger.

    Right before Rayna's eyes, Snickette was suddenly dragged under the water. Morrigan tried to grab her friend's feet but Snickette was already gone. Rayna raced up to the water and pulled Morrigan behind her, readying a Fire Storm charge, which she directed at the spot where she could still see Snickette's cloak.

    Nothing immediately happened. 5 heartbeats...10 heartbeats….20 heartbeats, and then the water erupted, revealing a ghostly figure.

    "Give me the other child," it rasped. Rayna and Morrigan exchanged puzzled looks. The ghost pointed at Morrigan.

    "Oi, I ain't no child ghostie," Morrigan said. "I'm a leprechaun, thank ye very much. And so's my friend you got there. Give her back!"

    "I'm not a ghost, I'm Xochitl, La Llorona!" the ghost announced. Rayna and Morrigan looked at her blankly. The ghost hissed and tears started flowing down her cheeks. "Surely you must have heard of me?"

    "Sorry dearie, but we've been lots of places and can't learn the myths of all of 'em," Morrigan replied. "Now, give back my friend!" Rayna readied another Fire Storm charge and gestured toward the ghost.

    The ghost clenched her fists and the river splashed around her, but then she let out a sigh. With a flick of her wrist, a drenched Snickette was thrown from the river and started choking out water on the bank. "Fine, have her back. Just no more fire." She started to drift back down into the water.

    Sucking in a breath of air, Snickette gasped "Treasure!" and Xochitl paused. More coughs racked her small frame, but Snickette managed to say, "the ghost had a lot of treasure down there."

    Xochitl raised an eyebrow. "Those trinkets? They just happen to collect around me."

    The three crusaders exchanged looks. Treasure was always handy. "Say, how about you come with us for a little while?" Rayna asked as she dismissed her Fire Storm. "I think you might have some fun."

    Xochitl looked at the river and the tranquil forest. It had been getting a bit quiet lately, as the rumours had started to spread. "I'm in."

    Flap...flap...flap.

    Flap...flap...flap.

    The hairs on the back of your neck rise as you enter the tent, a pungent smell filling your nostrils, something that smells like dust and dry earth. You look around for the source, hoping your eyes adjust to the dim lighting soon. You try to think back on what the sign outside the tent said, but you were running too fast to have read it properly.

    Flap...flap...flap.

    That odd sound happens again, closer this time. You turn around, trying to find the entrance to the tent again, thinking it might be worth facing the creatures outside rather than whatever is in here. And then you feel the hand on your back.

    A small squeak slips out of your mouth, adventurer or no, and you turn back to whatever touched you. All you can see is wings.
