Alun R. runs for Alejandro, Blake Ryan, Sabine V., and Scot Ryder
We ended last time with news of raids on the eastern border of the celtic Kingdon of Elmet, where the characters have been sent in search of an alliance, by the Saxon Lord of Synhamm. Having made a good initial impression all eyes turn to Iamon 'Killer of the Moonlit Boar' who immediately volunteers to confront the danger while King Ceretric summons his warband. He takes his aunt, Setia the Loon, Icenius the Boy Mystic, and they pick up, again, with Ulric the Hammer of the Gods who is still seeking the creature that killed his sister, after the vision granted to Icinius in Part 2. They discover the raids are not from the source they expected and follow a trail into the deepest and darkest of foreboding forests. There they confront the monsters and are tempted by the Old Gods, who have an agenda of their own... (The game has shifted sufficiently far from its roots in MotW that it will no longer be described as a 'hack', but will be loud and proud as 'Eotenweard: Guardians Against the Monsters'.)
