KYLE: "What up, Craaaaig?"
SEAN: "Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Tabletop Champions podcast. I'm Sean your Dungeon Master and with me tonight we have, Ben, who plays Cyrus.
BEN: [silence] [giggles from the group] No
This episode starts with a special opening scene.
SEAN: Looking upon a dismal and overcast day, we see a small encampment through the encroaching fog. Small huts draped in tartans line a small riverbed and wisps of smoke from smoldering campfires blanket the area. Of these buildings, one is slightly larger and through the window we see several men and women gathered around a long table discussing something important.
MALE VOICE: "It's not as simple as all that. We've tried to make alliances with other nearby clans. Some have even given troops, but it's not enough. Our meager forces couldn't even hold the line against one contingent of the McKaid(sp?) army, much less one from Jildos. I fear without a miracle we'll not stand a chance. I'll word off to—"
SEAN: The makeshift pelt door is thrown open as a squat halfling enters. He wears fine purple clothing, but the warpaint drawn on his face belays any thought of nobility. He carries a bundle of some kind wrapped in a fur. "Delvin! Quick, put this on!" The halfling unwraps the fur, exposing the skull of some great stag fashioned in the form of a helm. He hands the helm to the man and begins pinning the fur to his back.
MALE VOICE: "Who are you? What is the meaning of this?"
SEAN: "N-no time to explain fully! I know your daughter. I've been off doing...things. Mainly coordinating with the barbarian tribes, an interesting folk. I've told them that you've been brought back from the dead and will lead them to a great victory. They're a very superstitious lot." The halfling finishes tying the fur to the man.
MALE VOICE: "I don't know what you're trying to do here young man, but now is not the time for mischief. We're in the middle of a very serious meeting."
SEAN: The sound of a thousand feet, man and beast alike begin to grow in the distance. The halfling looks at the man and smiles. "When you send word to Dagna of your new army, tell her Corvino sends his warmest regards."
