Humanity is at war with the technologically advanced Therians, a presumably robotic species bent on subjugating and transforming all planets for their ultimate purpose: the crafting of a "better", more organized universe under their rule, which they refer to as their "therian heaven".
Do you feel different to those around you but can't quite figure out how or why? Do you find strange things happening around you? Do unfamiliar and perturbing feelings come over you? Do you want help to come to terms with these new experiences?
The crew made their way to the headquarters of the Red Orc army. The emissary asked Vixia to land the Despair outside of the armies billeted tents and for some of the crew to follow him in.Needless to say Birz, Gul and Kalan were volunteered by Vixia for this mission. The emissary pulled his female Drow slave behind him beaming at the orcs as he and the Drow passed. The orc soldiers spoke in their guttural orcish language to the emissary as they passed – most glared at the Drow in a none to kindly manner.
The Drow were then introduced to the Red Orc Commander in Chief Chairman Naskhund who immediately set them two challenges to prove the Drow’s sincerity in joining their cause. They were first to prevent a White Orc emissary from contacting “X the Unknown” a very powerful Chaos sorcerer who inhabits an island fortress in the Demon Kingdoms. With his aid the White Orcs could turn any battle to their advantage and win the war. Then he wanted an assassination of a powerful White Orc General who had been too successful against the Red Orc army.
The Drow returned to Vixia and informed her of Red orcs needs. She went back with Birz to set the amount the Drow were to be paid for these undertakings. As the need was urgent the Despair along with an orc scout – who strangely spoke Drow headed off to the southwest.
