    Default The Humans Came [IC]

    You step through the portal, the first to go through. A bright flash of light, and...

    A sudden rush of wind. The portal was not perfectly precise-you're about 5' off the ground, leaving you to fall awkwardly. You manage to avoid any real harm, though, and take stock of your surroundings. A slightly snowy, forested mountain.

    Azura gasps at the sudden blast of wind. She lands with a clatter of steel and picks herself up, looking around slowly, trying not to smile. It seems inappropriate, but she's always loved forests.

    She hears movement behind her and quickly strides forward, clearing the landing site for the others as she takes another look around.

    Sutha steps out from the portal, and she too tumbles to the ground, as clumsily if not as noisily in her leather armor. She looks around. "Well, it's definitely not time to plant." She looks around, surveying the surroundings more closely, and looking to see what is in the distance in each direction.

    There are a few more peaks, visible in the distance. The trees extend all the way down, far as you can see, and there's some rustling that might be animals, or might simply be the breeze. In one of the trees is an old beehive, probably dead.

    Yorg steps calmly and takes a look at his surroundings. He does not speak himself, but rather allow the other two be in charge of this operation. A leader is he not and does not claim or desire such a title. He spits on the ground.
    "Place looks good for me. Then again, I never cared for more space than a small hut for myself."

    Sutha nods her agreement. "Definitely defensible; my only concern is supporting the group under our charge. Give me a minute," she says, as she begins the complex casting ritual to commune with nature surrounding them, which should give them a fairly complete picture of the surrounding area--certainly enough to know whether the population of settlers they are to care for will be able to survive and thrive, at least, and no doubt other useful things she has not yet considered.

    Azura nods as well.

    While Sutha is communing, Azura takes a few steps off to the side. When she finds a suitably clear area, she takes out her prayer book and begins casting a spell of her own.

    Casting find steed. If it works, summoning a celestial war horse.

    Pick what facts you want.


    As you start your prep, more of your volunteers come through. The first few take some initiative and start putting leaves and other soft(er) things beneath the landing spot. Luckily, when everyone is out, there are no major injuries-some cuts here, a bruise there, but bones are intact, and no one is complaining.

    "We should take a small group and scout around, see if there is no danger too close to new home." Yorg says. "Stealth's not my speciality, but lead a few folks. Who knows, we're lucky we might even hunt a dinner."

    Azura chuckles at the mention of stealth and taps her own armored shoulder.

    "I think it would be best if I stayed here," she says. "Though perhaps once we know the lay of the land a bit better, I can help with dinner."

    Yorg goes and picks up seven men from the group, preferably volunteers for a scouting mission.
    "I'm going north. You do North-East, East, South-East, South, South-West, West and North-West. We scout for one hour of a walk in a straight line, then return. You see a threat or pinkskins, you do your best to not be seen and come back. You see anything we should know about, you come back. You see food, you get it and come back. Understood? Then go." He gives the orders, then sets off to do his part.
