OOC: I assume Thengal will be in?
IC: .....Bear takes in the five brave souls and can't help but think back on the prophecy. "And the Guardian will lead the five heads of justice into the battle against the d**ned. Armed with the power of the gods, they will be a mighty fold set to battle for the souls of the world...." he mumbles to himself. Snapping back into reality, Bear grunts his approval. "Please take a seat at the bar everyone" he directs them with his hand. As everyone takes their seats villagers begin to fix the solid wooden door to the inns entrance. "As you all have seen, a menace is once again unleashed upon the world. We are the only ones who can stop its spread before the winter freeze ends and the passes open up to the plains and world beyond. If these, "demons" are able to spread out into the world we will be powerless to stop them. I do not know how they were released, though I have my own speculations. All I know is we must travel to the tip of the Dwarven Anvil and find the Lair of the Guardian. Within this lair, the weapons of the Gods can be found. We will need them to stop the necromancer from freeing himself from the Phantom Peak." Bear sighs. "I wish I knew more. But rest assured, it will all come back to me. I think." He raises his hand to stop the impending questions. "I am the guardian my friends. I have lived for centuries, although I can't remember my past lives. All I know is that I am here to lead the generation's chosen warriors against the demons and their master whenever they find a breach back into our world. According to the old texts, I will only regain my memory when the demons are released. And then, only piece by piece. A built in precaution to prevent me from acting or releasing any information I knew prematurely." Bear smiles to disarm their exasperated looks. "It will come to me. At least we know what the first step is. Finding the lair of the guardian. My lair according to the texts. Now, now that you know some of what we are up against, here is what I know of our enemy. The demons can possess initially when they are released from their prison. Mostly creatures weak in the mind or corrupt in spirit. Once they have been in their host for 7 days, they become material in this world and can transform into their normal forms, thus assuming their true powers. These powers can vary once they are in their original forms depending on what class and or type of demon they are. The old writings do not go to deeply into this category I am afraid. Finally, this is not the first time they have escaped their prison. They have been doing so for centuries, and every time they have, myself with the help of the chosen have defeated them and sent them back. We must do so again. Now, please tell me, what skills, powers do you all possess. Please do not keep secrets, it is vital that we all view ourselves as a team. Right here, and right now! Only as a team can we defeat the terror that has been unleashed upon this world." After the last is stated, Bear takes a seat and wipes the pool of sweat from his brow. You can clearly see that he is worn from concern.
