Consulate Docks

 Oh Elona, where have you been all my life.  It is warm, sunny, and smells of the sea.   Kormir greets me right off the boat, pleased to see us so soon.  From one adventure to the next, i'm developing a taste for saving the world.  She asks me to help her rally her troops, and so I stand with her as she delivers a fantastical speech that lights the hearts of the Sunspears on fire.  The problems in Elona stem from a woman named Varesh.  She is a dervish sorceress, and according to Kormir, she is intent on bringing Nightfall upon the lands of the Golden Sun.  She wants to free Abaddon from his immortal chains, blah blah blah, sounds so familiar.  Someones always trying to free something or other to end the world.  Third times the charm right? I hope theres no battles afterwards.
We arrive at the consulate docks with our troops are Kormir.  They look a little apprehensive at first to be following someone new in to battle, but my record speaks for itself, and most importantly, Kormir Speaks for me.   Kormir is a seasoned warrior with a spear, older with experience, and reveared by all generals of the peacekeeping Sunspears, and feared by the wretched Kournans.   We fight our ways through the gates until we reach Nerashi's team.  All of this seems too easy to me, and Dunkoro, a weathered healer, balding and sunburnt, agrees with me.  Kormir agrees aswell, but she demands we push forward anyways, and watch for being flanked.
We find Varesh in the keep by a shrine.  She is casting a spell, and a large ominous purple orb hovers over the circle, pulsing.  She cackles with laughter as an enormous beast emerges with a few emmisaries.  Nightmares to behold.
 We fight valiantly, but our new recruits are not trained against beasts.  One by one they fall until we have no choice but to retreat.  It does not come easily to any of us, but it is now our responsibility to get as many as we can out safely. 
Dunkoro beings to organize our retreat, finding a safeway out under covering fire.  Kormir is the only one that remains in the keep alive, and Varesh just continues to laugh while intermittantly yelling "ABADDON!" 
Poor brave Kormir.  As we stand at the gate she is the only sunspear left in the battle, and she is lone against the great Hunger.  It will eat her eyes, it keeps barking, and she falls captive.  We must run. Upon arrival on the mainlands, we are told that Koss has been taken aswell.  He is being held near though, looks like two rescue missions are on the docket now.
