News had begun to spread of a forest-like and mountainous island with few inhabitants south-west of Amia. The south coast of the island consists of a small village town, where some residents have mysteriously disappeared. There are talks of wailing noises at night, odd kidnappings of 'beautiful' and 'handsome' people alongside dangers such as undead, necromancers, and ogres. Events wrapped around unsolved crimes and deaths lead to a tale of revenge from a banshee. It was clear the island the inhabitants call 'Hale' had problems of its own. A layer of history, strange people, and current events may unfold more in due time.

Adventurers may find a certain ship captain in Wharftown will offer to take anyone to the island.

The Warlord of Tempus was among the first to arrive on the island town and quickly set to work, leading a small band of adventurers into the towns prominent graveyard. Returning some time later somewhat harried from battle. The calm and collected Tempuran left her squad to set up a minor base of operations within a small room in the local Inn. Focusing her interest on the militia and the towns defence. Periodically throughout the day she could be seen patrolling the border of the town, geared to fight.

To those who stuck around the island after the recent events in the Graveyard, the citizens had become more paranoid since. Citizens wouldn't dare to step in the graveyard. There were talks about swallowing their pride and asking help from local druids to the north forest may aid in a Hallowing. The people of the small coastal town seemed particularly fed up with the Mayor Dan Hedgeburg, not only with his inability to ask for help from the druids of the island but the on-going rises of taxes and the overall low pay of workers. Farmers, brothel workers, militia men and more would work tirelessly at their jobs.

The militia guards would gladly welcome Elwyn to their Barracks. It was simply a building with weapons on racks and plated armours on stands. There would also be folders in bookshelves containing all documented reports and crimes, should she ask the local desk-worker for any information.

Meanwhile, there were many sights and peculiar citizens on the coastal town. Shopkeepers selling weapons, armour and other adventuring gear. A temple of Lathander. An old alchemist often heading out to the forest and returning back to the local inn with a heavy brown sack. Occasionally there would be citizens who would set flowers at the doorstep of a two-floor home, at the middle of the town. They say a vocal coach named Arthur lived there, father of a recently deceased celebrity bardess.

For now, there was no wailing coming from the graveyard, though a local farmer claims to have seen a hooded and brown cloaked figure head there the night after.

The elf known as Sylveera Guststride would mostly keep to herself and keep steady eyes on the every day of the villages citizen. In her mind there was something going on under the cozy exterior of the village. She would not be crude or rude but mostly just kept to herself or spoke in short bursts with anyone approaching. Perhaps some discussion with Elwyn about the ordeal on the island. She would if possible take trips to the forest and keep tabs on the mayor and his daughter.

In the couple of days following the initial attack, the stoic Warlord maintains a busy presence within the township. Having moved into the barracks with the militia she occasionally was seen joining in on their patrols where she would talk casually with them and getting to know each of them. The off-duty hours were spent in research of the towns criminal records and history, Occasionally speaking with other members of her band about the town.

The Mayor, Dan Hedgeburg, would often be tending to his front garden. A fair few would greet the man during the evening, though during dark hours he would occasionally visit the local town hall with a sack of gold. He wouldn't notice the elf keeping tabs on him.

As for Serena, the Mayor's daughter, would occasionally head to the forest. The forest front of the coastal town seemed to have a campsite of its own. Druids tending to the local wildlife and rangers training with knives and bow. Serena would often be found at the campsite with the other rangers. On the first day, she would later venture out to the east side of the forest, a coastal side with more thicker bushes and patch of mushrooms. She would glance around her surroundings, pick up a small yellow mushroom, before heading back to the encampment. The ranger would be home ready for dinner with her father at night. The next couple of days, she would be back to training with the other rangers.

Elwyn would learn that the former captain of the militia was a man named Reinhardt who died a month ago, though the team seems to be in some disarray with figuring out who leads them. Many of the militia members appear rather laidback, claiming that the rangers to the forest deal with the ogres at the mountainous north side of the island. There was clearly a lack of discipline, sometimes claiming they'd do a better job if they were paid better. Though they would treat Elwyn with kindness and respect, carrying a general curiosity about who the war knight is. The folders for the history and criminal records were relatively small, though contained some interesting information...

The Elf would go on with her day, mostly doing the same thing as she did before. Luckily for her...or the militia she did not scold them and try to organize them. But one evening after having a chat with Elwyn, the elf decided to check on the house of the murder. At first trying to speak to the father of the dead woman. If not allowed she would try convince the man that it is for his best if his daughter can be put to rest and this case be solved.

After a brief absence from Hale, the Warlord could be seen returning by ship and carting two large crates behind her as she returned to the small town. Setting these boxes just outside of the barracks the Warlord began setting up what appeared to be a training grounds. Setting up both archery targets and combat dummies in an open field nearby. After personally testing the equipment to ensure it would hold up, she'd direct the militia to her make-shift training grounds. Those expecting the Warlord to be easy going would find she was a brutal yet efficient drill master. A stark contrast from the easy-going person she was when she was off-duty. After a couple of hours of intense drilling, the men were dismissed back to their regular duties. The Warlord returned to her spot in the barracks where she continued researching for the remainder of the day.

The training did not go entirely unrewarded, as late in the afternoon, any of the militia going to the tavern would find their meals and drinks have been paid in full and in advance. "Courtesy of the Warlord." being the answer to any confusion.

Few of the militia would initially complain at the sudden effort they had to pull, yet they went along with it, perhaps showing a hint of fear towards the Warlord. Their thoughts had changed once they had a free meal and drink later in the day. It seems the notion of low-pay was compensated by what they'd consider this as a gift.

The Elven archer, ranger and scout would roll her eyes at the militia and the Warlords "brutal" training. She would offer to train them in archery for one evening, of course! No Elven secrets of archery but the art of archery she could teach em without giving away the Elven Art of the Arcane Archer. She would probably be even more of a tyrant than her Warlord friend, nor was there any reward if any took her up on the training. To her, she said, the mastery of the archery! To extend the bow to be like a bodypart, was a reward in itself. After this evening or if non showed up, she would continue her scouting and stalking about Hale!

A few would turn up to the session, mostly the ones that were practising using the archery targets Elwyn had set up. They appeared to be newer recruits who weren't too skilled in blade and shield, which made up a small portion. As long as they didn't have to go through any intense drills, there were no complaints. Their aim with the bow improved slightly compared to when the session started, picking up key lessons well from the elf.

Another day and another session of training was spent with the Warlord. Much the same as the previous session, the men are taught the necessary qualities in being a soldier, courage, teamwork and skill. On top of that, they are then put through an intense session of unit tactics training, encouraging them to work as a team to accomplish a goal. The Warlord was no less brutal than before, perhaps the militiamen were even used to her by now. The Warlord also kept an eye out for any potential leaders amongst them, anyone showing exemplary signs of cunningness or leadership ability, even above actual skill were put in positions allowing them to take charge of the exercise.

Once again, meal and drinks were paid for in advance, but for those men who performed exceptionally well during training were also treated to an extra round of drinks and even a decadent dessert the Warlord had brought in from Okappa's restaurant in Cordor. Naturally, those whom performed averagely or poorly missed out.

And vaguely, "Excellence is rewarded in kind."

The Elf curiously followed the drilling and offered her own archer lessons again. Typicallt he same kind of tyranny minus any drinks and food. The lesson itself was the payment in her mind. In the evening she would sit in the inn and look at the others, rolling her eyes as Elwyn bought them drinks and dinner. Of course, she would not show this to Elwyn and she would just do a nod and drink her own water as if nothing happended around her.

Dark days finally lead to a small period of respite after Mayor Dan Hedgeburg's call for help once again from the adventurers guild. It started off with loud shrieks from a small distance near the town Hale, then dark fog and undead. The adventurers had arrived just in time to fend the undead in the local graveyard where the local militia was struggling. After moments of doubt, the fog and feeling of negative energy had finally been lifted. It appears one mystery has been solved.

Though there was still the subject of missing people.

Four adventurers consisting of a hobgoblin, a human monk, cleric, and wizard had arrived in Hale. The usual business occurred where the Mayor Dan Hedgeburg hired volunteers to cleanse and hallow the graveyard once and for all. They arrived back from the graveyard, speaking to the Mayor and his daughter about the ongoing issues. Since then and all previous efforts to deal with the problems, the militia and people had fully opened to the trust of adventurers and volunteers alike. Though they were not too reliant, for the militia placed more effort and drive in their duties. Overall the townspeople are relieved now that the western graveyard is free of threats, feeling much safer in their own homes.

A certain female ranger could have been seen handing a report to the local militia of the coastal village in Hale. News has gradually begun to spread that the Ogres to the northern mountainous area have occasionally been spotted eavesdropping on the local grove, though wouldn't step further than the 'almost' crossroad border in the forest.

The militia in the coastal village has currently been focusing their efforts in their training, as well as polishing and fixing their gear in preparation for the worst. Meanwhile, the rangers and druids of the forest are on high alert, where more than one would stand watch on the guard towers, keeping an eye out of the north.

Meanwhile, in Wharftown, a certain ship captain can be seen doing his usual business, spending time at the local inn before the next sail.

News had spread that three captives of the twelve missing people, a commoner woman, a militia member and a blacksmith, were brought back to Hale thanks to a group of brave heroes. Over the coming days, they would mostly stick to themselves indoors, apparently left with some emotional scars, though also happy to be reunited with their families.

Thanks to the abundance of metals, ores, and equipment retrieved from the ogre mountains, and advised by some outsiders of Hale, the Mayor had ordered they would be exported and sold in the mainland. Ships returned with imported goods consisting of livestock and gold. The local herders aided in gathering some of the livestock into caravans, which were later sent off north to the forest with some militia guards. If anyone staying on the island asked where the caravan was headed to, the cart driver would simply say: "To Grump". The people would make it safely back to the town after the trips.

As with general business in the town, the taxes appeared to have lowered and wages increased ever slightly. The militia remained focused and disciplined with the aid of the warlord, former warlord, and an elf.

After two days the returned militiaman is put into training with the rest of the guardsmen. Pairing each of them up she has the pairs spar one another, making the rounds between each group until she was completely satisfied with their combat manoeuvres and formations. Just another day in the Hale army...

Rewards, again, involve a full meal and free drinks. Decadent desserts for those who prove themselves worthy in the eyes of the veteran fighter.
