Indie Bard: Hello good townspeople! What might be the trouble here?
King Lorde Mayor: Ah, Indie Bard! It is fortuitous you have arrived. We are in grievous peril!
Indie Bard: What’s going on?
King Lorde Mayor: Well, as you know, this is the great kingdom of Gilneas. For many years we have served as a beacon of hope in this dark and evil land. Many years ago, we grew tired of our constant struggle and built a great wall surrounding our kingdom. While this great wall offered protection from the outside world, it could not protect us from ourselves. Over time, the people grew restless. Captain Rebellious rallied the people, and took up arms against me in a deadly civil war that ruined the lives of thousands. The burning and pillaging devastated the kingdom daily until we managed to capture him and lock him away. Now, we have discovered that our wall is not as impenetrable as we had previously believed, and somehow, the deadly Worgen have invaded our kingdom and are indiscriminately slaying our people. Amidst the confusion, Captain Rebellious has escaped his imprisonment and is holding the Worgen at bay atop the great walls. We have learned his followers have maintained a secret arsenal from the war, and we hope to confiscate and use it to defeat the Worgen hordes. In addition, I have just received word from my potentially evil adviser that the Worgen’s bite infects the victim with a transformative poison that — over the course of a few hours — turns the victim into a vicious wolf-beast. . . .
