Full Text Edit

Toshioka Kiri: Kiri spots Tezz walking by. She recalls the contingency plan… the situation… everything.

She takes a breath, puts on a bright, cheerful grin, and strides up to him.

"Hey Tezz!" she claps a hand on his shoulder. "I’ve got a favor to ask. You mind helping me out? It’s about the witch hunters and something big that’s coming up."

Tezzeret Verdile: "Yeah, uh, what’s up Kiri?" He hadn’t been around for witch hunting in a while, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t willing to help.

Toshioka Kiri: She struggles to keep a cheery, if serious face up.  He can’t know the truth.

"There’s a really dangerous witch approaching," she states. "It’s going to need all the fighters, mages, and dragons we can afford to stand up against it. There will be casualties, I’m absolutely certain… it might not even need a traditional labyrinth as we know it. It might just reform the land around it into one.

"I’m giving the estimate of its arrival at anywhere from a month to a year from now. We have to be prepared. The problem is, I need to report back to my home village soon - I’m still technically on my Walkabout, after all," she laughs weakly. "So I want you to be in charge of the witch hunters while I’m gone. Gods be willing, that witch won’t appear while I’m away."

Tezzeret Verdile: "Oh, uh, yeah. I can do that. I suppose since I’ve had the most experience with them, besides you, that is." He smiled back. "How… how do you know about the witch?"

Toshioka Kiri: She shrugs. “Statistics.”
