With everything finally calming down, and Grim and Tiordane’s negotiations buying the Expedition at least a week of breathing room, most folks got back to rebuilding. But then the reports came in from the Aerie of the Icewyrms that it was under full attack by a Quall Horde.
Since the Doomwyrm Riders moved out, the IceWyrms and their allies have been exploring the other half of the Aerie. In its depths, Grim and Lurtor discovered a Falosini Sovereign youth infected with a Quall Queen Larvae. Held in stasis using an ancient Temporal Empire Stasis Chamber, the subject is unknown, but is obviously the target of the Quall attacks.
There are currently 40 Ancient IceWyrms, 300 Mature IceWyrms, 1000 Juvenile IceWyrms already involved in the battle against the Quall N’drone Horde. They are lead by IceWyrm General Kaiwaffen (H.P. 100, F.S. 15, 3 attacks, ancient IceWyrm).
They are arrayed against the Quall Horde of Ayxotoxya, marked as the Cult of Ayx (pronounced Aye Yex) on their banners. Two thousand Quall Soldiers, Seven hundred Flayers, Five hundred Pit Mongrels. They are led by Hivelord Deminoj, (who if slain will result in their entire Hive fleeing back to the plane of Fire from which they came).
Deminoj HiveLord is currently leading a force against the main western wall of the Aerie. He is seeking to melt through it with his praetorian guard of twenty Quall Soldiers, Fifteen Flayers, and Ten Pit Mongrels (armed as standard in the Core Book).
This wall has S.A.R. 200 and will lose 20 S.A.R. every combat round the battle continues for. When it hits 0, they will breach it and be into the vault area where the Falosini Sovereign Youth is being kept.
It seems there are three major options:
1- Attack and Kill Deminoj HiveLord. Take down the HiveLord and the rest of the Hive will flee back to the plane of Fire. Watch out for his bodyguards
2- Ignore the Dragons- They are dragons, they wanted to eat us last week, why help them now? But this will result in the fall of the Aerie of the IceWyrms to the Quall N’drone who will infect them with larva and breed more Quall AND the Quall get Horned Dog IceWyrms as riding beasts.
3- Give them the Falosini Sovereign Youth in Crystalline Storage in hopes they stop their attack. It seems to be the only reason for their attack. But then you release a dangerous Quall Queen on the loose…
