Utter Destruction the city ruins has been mostly reclaimed by the jungle but the main city streets are still walkable. A fly over revivals that the city wasn’t destroyed by invaders. Walls are the most preserved section of the city. The gates were crushed from the inside out… In fact it appears everywhere are signs of a long ago chaotic battle where the city destroyed its self… From within!

As Immodeus walks upon the ashes of this once great city, he can’t help but feel an overwhelming helplessness. “had the order of the Rack been present, such a calamity would have not befallen, this city.” walking to and fro picking up shattered memerories, gazing at tarnished heirlooms of once sentimental mean and importance to different peoples and friends… sons and daughters, husbands and wives- all of whom he had never known, all of whom laid forgotten. Avguard will be rebuilt, Order will be restored; fortified and all within its’ walls will prosper and live under guard by the order of the Scourge!" This he vowed to himself and to all the poor souls lost in this insurrection. “Those responsible will be hunted down one by one, Judged by the Lictor of the scourge, and Purged and purified by the order of the Rack. for Without culpability, chaos reigns”

concentrating with eyes shut and in a kneeling trance with sword laid across his thighs, Immodeus attempts to detect any residual evil or any Xaos that still exists in the area. And He begis a prayer" O, Holy _______, Guide my Heart to the focal point of this Unhallowed wound, If there be any foe, protect any humanity that resides within them. please guide and Harbor their souls through safe Passages into their afterlife, Quell their aggressions, forgive their transgressions, and make their end Tranquil. So Be It"

Waves of evil wash over you as the profound raw emotion of self importance overcomes you. A sudden tremor unsettles the dust all around you in response to you’re presence, as if you have awakened what evil consumed the city!

Immodeus, standing slowly, carefully looking through solid walls of stone and peering at things within the structure itself with a Hyper Vigilance only a Knight of the Scourge could possess. with a cautious grace of that of a Wolf, He quietly… slowly moves through Avgard. analyzing the ever minute detail through the veil of stones and mortar for any foes and hellish entities that could still plague this fortified keep

There is a strong but old scent lingering amongst the ruins. That of a reptile, perhaps were-crocodile. Scattered bones from humans and animals alike litter the side streets….

Suddenly you see a Colossal Dragon dominating the sky as it flys with the sun too its back rapidly approaching the west side of the City. (A good mile away from the walls)

Klars Ready and out, Immodeus stands bravely. Accepting his fate (whatever it may be) A dragon that size has already seen him- with their predatory eyes and feline curiosity the dragon will no doubt seek to waylay his Mission. best stand strong a ready to die, stalwart and righteous, than to flee blindly through the streets a “coward”

Ur’thozz informs the party on his back tha he sees a lone figure sunlight shinning on his armor. Ur’thozz lands 600ft from Immodeus in what was once a town square.

holding his stance Immodeus speaks to the dragon " I wish you no harm, only to the ones responsible for this travesty" still tense and rigid he awaits a response “if thou seeketh the same goal as I, we could ally… but if this is not your intention… I’m ready”

Ur’thozz motions to his allies. “These are my companions; I will make an alliance with you if you are not evil and you agree to let me hold all our joint treasure we get… Counting coins is a habit I can’t kick.”

“I have no use for materialistic wealth, so it is yours… and I despise the profaneness that evil casts over the delicate souls of frail mortals. And so it shall be, on this day we ally to purify this dead city of Avgard and from it rebuild it anew purified and purged”

The dragons molten orbs scrutinizes you. “The more wealth we uncover the easier it will be to rebuild. I will scour the main city. If you all search small places. Do you know what destroyed the city?”

“No, at first I thought it was you by the lingering smell. but no, I sense it’s something far more malevolent and insidious.” “something reptilian moved through the area from what my senses tell me. how recent and how long ago- I know not…. but I suppose we’ll find out in do time, friend” he smiles “by the way, my name is Immodeus, pious Hellknight belonging the order of the Scourge.” (just realized I haven’t given you all a formal introduction) Immodeus begins his search looking for anything suspicious indicating Xaotic or evil presences.
