MISSION NAME: The Harvester
CLIENT: Siltstone Wetlands
CHARACTERS: Orion Prima & Mod
MISSION BRIEFING: Corpses of adventurers have been found strung up in the marshes, dead and cocooned in a sticky web. The attacks seem to be random, as they're found all across the bog and not just one concentrated area. It's impossible to enter now without the risk of being wrapped up and killed, we need someone to find the source of these strange murders.
REWARD: Standard Mission Rewards + Special Item upon completion.
There was something haunting about the jungle, it was no longer vibrant and green. Life seemed to be sucked out of it, and a thick mist hung beneath the trees like a blanket. Very little light shone through the canopy, leaving the trees and everything else in the jungle to only be visible through silhouettes. It made it difficult to tell the difference between the large vines and even larger serpents, and you could only tell when it was too late. Insects seemed to thrive in the jungle lately, however, anyone inside would find themselves the target for many mosquitoes or other creepy crawlies.
Some ways at the edge of the jungle was a small village, an outpost of travellers and explorers who used the jungles resources to survive. It was clear they were struggling for food, basic supplies, and grieving for the loss of friends and family who had recently died within. On a large wooden table was a big sheet of fabric, with an intricate painting of the Siltstone Wetlands and its landmarks. Dotted all across it were pins that marked where people had been found hanging in a cocoon of slime. They were nowhere near each other, so whoever took this mission would simply have to explore anywhere in hopes of finding the source.
