Judgment for the Firsts

A contingent of serathine descend into Jastrey upon a beam of starlight. They enter town, weapons drawn, in search of the Chosen and their Firsts.

Story Notes

The Aether is misaligned as a result of the recent ascension of the Chosen. Factions of serathine devoted to now-dead immortals have defected, throwing the heavens themselves into disarray. A group of more militant serathine have set out to right this great wrong by killing the Firsts to end the influence of the Chosen.

 

TIMING: This encounter is intended to be run prior to "Stars Misaligned". It can be run multiple times if necessary.

Narrative Effects
Insight (Very Easy) - Semalion's words ring with truth. Beneath his righteous fury, you sense a well of despair and loss.
Inspect Evil (Automatic) - Semalion is a being of light and virtue. You're not sure he's capable of evil. Wrath and judgment are another matter.
Inspect Magic (Easy) - Though highly magical themselves, the serathine are under no spells you can discern.
