The trio made their way back to the trade road and the now smouldering village they saw other travellers had stopped to survey the scene and a young boy was wandering about the village calling out when you arrive back on the scene.

The people on the road are an older man accompanied by a number of young boys, they are standing beside a cart drawn by a pair of eland. The man raises a hand as you appear, " Ah...these are your beasts? What happened here? Rundi said he saw bodies among the embers."

"As far as I can tell, it was some migration of land birds. However, it seems like such events were unheard of. We came across two unfortunate individuals who seemed to be tossed aside. There does seem to be a trail, and the villagers were pursued towards the forest."

The older man screwed up his face in confusion, " Uh, Ostriches do not set fires....and the lad I sent in said the rear wall was pulled down from the outside by liana ropes."

" The villagers are headed south? Towards the Forest of Storms? No one in their right mind would head into the Forest of Storms."

"What do you know of the forest of storms? Based on the wounds we saw, it seemed it was caused by beasts rather than by man. Torn torsos and broken necks. We think we may be able to find survivors since we tracked them towards the forest of storms. I intend to rescue whom we can."

"Please see what you can do, there is a body of a child and an old woman in the grassland. I saw no trace of weapons, or men."

"The people clearly had nowhere else to go. What is so dangerous about the forest?"

The older man turned towards Chiemeka, " You are not from here, are you? The Forest of Storms is all there is south of here...it is a place of death....."

He turned towards Kuublu, " But you are a man of Wagadou....you must know the tales of Kutembea'Tai, the Empire fought against them many times in the past....many of your generals wear their feathers in their headbans."

He lean't against his cart and regarded the three, " It is said many generations ago...before the oldest kingdoms we remember the Forest of Storms was the The Emerald Heart....the earth had always shaken in the Emerald Heart...and it is said that far to the south within the Emerald Heart mountains lay that cracked with flame and smoke....thick clouds gathered about the mountains.."

" Over many generations it was noted by those that dwelled within the heart that game was fleeing and new animals, not seen before, were seen beneath the trees.....and then came the Kutembea'Tai. Men left the forest and moved north, establishing the first kingdoms which would later birth the empire. And the storm clouds continued to gather over the forest until it was known only as the Forest of Storms."

" The Kutembea'Tai followed but the Empire was strong in its youth at drove them back to the trees leaving behind their mines and forts....but still even to this day the Kutembea'Tai, the Walking Eagles, continue their raids into the lands of men....".

" You spoke only of the bodies of men and women....if there were no other bodies I would say it is rather they are being taken south rather than fleeing there."

The man stroked his beard and asked a boy to fetch a jug of water from the cart to share amongst them.

" No one has returned from beneath the trees. They take people...for what purpose I do not know."

" They bear weapons of great weight and strength and tales say their feathers are of bright metal. They come, they kill and take....as the Empire weakens they become more bold once again."

Kuublu thinks about all the time he has eaten fowl, what a curse that they are rising up. Looks like this trip will take longer than what he originally planned. There may be many more captives, Kuublu must go and try to release them, and if possible, kill some of their leaders.

"It would be difficult to kill them all, but at least we should try to release their prisoners..."


Kuublu thinks, how many days to reach the capital? Perhaps a full scale invasion force would be more appropriate. Best they could do is maybe scout out and find out where the parties are. If its too far, he'll assign one of the villagers to run over as messenger.

The older man kick the ground, " If your aiming to do that I would do it sooner rather than later. The deeper you get into the forest the more dangerous it gets I would think."
