The Lord’s orders were clear: Accompany his son, Jehnath, on a hunt. Keep him company, but do not interfere with his entertainment. And above all, make sure he nothing happens to him.
The two men assigned with the task were his champion, Kamau, and his advisor in all things magical, Fox. The two men enjoyed the trust of their Lord, but like most people, did not enjoy his arrogant son’s company. Even so, they accepted their orders dutifully. At the time, they had no idea what they had signed up for.
It all seemed like any other hunt, with the young Jehnath maiming a pale furred stag. When they went closer to deliver the killing blow however, they were in for a surprise,for their prey was no ordinary stag, but a creature with strange powers. With its dying breath, everything went black.
The three hunters woke up to find themselves in a savannah, dotted with hills and trees and sliced by a river. In the distance they could see a cloud of dust, while the air carried the sounds of baying wolves. Jehnath spotted a vantage point, some standing stones atop a hill, which he hoped was a holy place that could provide them sanctuary. Unsure of whether still carrying out their orders or running for their lives, Kamau and Fox followed.
It was a long, hard run. As the pack drew closer, the heroes looked over their shoulder. A flock of hawks was flying over the wolfpack and a tall figure with antlers sprouting out of its forehead was leading. This was clearly no ordinary gathering of wild animals. Someone, or something, was hunting them.
Jehnath collapsed as they were climbing the hill and his guardians had to carry him. The pack gained ground and reached them just as they entered the stone circle. Its leader smirked. “You think you’re safe in there, don’t you? You think a shrine will protect you?” he said, and stepped in the circle. His gaze fell upon the unconscious body of Jehnath. “I’d advise you to pick your company more carefully in the future” he said with a tone of disgust. “However… you did make it up here, and that’s not easy. You can reach Sigil from here by sprinkling a little water on the stones as you speak the name of the City of Doors.”
So they did, only to find themselves transferred to a dark alley in Sigil. They gave a healing potion to Jehnath, and as he was coming to, left him and stepped to the streets. As of now, they were no longer bound to any authority but themselves.
