The three warriors (Sonya, Jax, and Leroy) awoke and found themselves in Xaltoon’s tower. The tower is at a strategic point between two major cities, and it serves as a landmark and regional hub. A number of small towns lie outside of it. Xaltoon introduced himself as a member of the Silver Messangers, an order dedicated to spreading knowledge and facilitating travel and information. The tower itself is one of theirs, and is a relay point for important messages throughout the region.
They are heroes of legend who defeated an ancient evil, and ushered in an era of unrivalved peace. This peace has left the world much weaker than it was, and there are none who could match the power those four had 1000 years ago. The last thing all of them remember was fighting the evil demonic knight who threatened the world, losing, and breaking a black orb as a last ditch effort (they all died), and they remember little else of their time (although it comes back to them from time to time). The fourth warrior was still recovering due to its diminished essense (injury during fighting). Xaltoon tells them that he has called them back thanks in part to pieces of their essence he acquired over the years.
Xaltoon sends the three out to quell issues in the region and restore tranquility – getting the rust off of them. He also wanted them to bring him some magical items.. a scythe, a pocketwatch, a chess set, and a moonstone. They’re scattered around the towns, and he either doesn’t have a good relationship with the people who have these items, or he doesn’t have any way to get them to give the items up, so he sends these guys.
The three warriors set off into the town of Tower’s Edge where they encountered a near food riot. They quelled it by convincing the merchant that they would maintain order if he lowered his prices. The city watch was not on hand for the incident (many were actually participating). Several thieves tried to run off with bread at the end, but were defeated handily by the warriors. They limped off to recover. The head of the watch is named Jeff Casey, and they were going off to see him.
