Ridding the Scum
Chapter 1: The Scouting Mission
by The Ztolk
This is the first chapter of my new campaign, Ridding the Scum
The kingdom of Klodonia had been at peace for many years. King Maland IV had ruled wisely and fairly
over the past few decades. However, much unrest was stirring. Travelling wanderers brought tales
of an army being gathered in neighboring kingdom, Selkelia, under the rule of King Nalibat I,
known as The Snake for his piercing eyes and quick temper. The Snakes army appeared to be marching
towards Klodonia, with the hope of destroying the present regime and letting the Snake take all
of the precious resources as his own.
A knock is heard at your manor door. A man bearing the king's emblem stands there.
"A message from King Maland," he says, "The Snake's army shall soon be upon us. I have heard
of your skills both as a lord and a soldier, and wish you to build and lead Klodonia's army
against the Snake. The fate of the kingdom is in your hands."
You graciously accept.
Chapter 1: The Scouting Mission.
The Snake's scouts are marching over the mountains. They are not a large army, but the information
thay can gather will give the enemy the strategic advantage. The will soon be at Mountain Lake,
which has a small farming village built by it. Your orders are to take control of the village,
bolster its defenses, and kill the Snake's scouting party before they can complete their task.
The village is not built for defense and has been hit hard by winter. There is a wall, but it
is not built for defense. There is no stone in the region, little oil and iron, but lots of wood.
The territory is flat, which makes for great farming, but the enemy will be able to travell faster.
Go forth and destroy the scouts before they destroy us.
