A Tangled Plot
- Mission #1: Mary Macomber, Arch-Villain (The Cabal)
Hi! I guess you know by now that we sorceresses have been fighting with the Red caps for a long time. A long, long time. Ever since they came to our settlement in Roanoke, back in 1588. That was shortly after the Fir Bolg came to our lands. They were running away from their enemies in Ireland, the Tuatha de Dannan. We formed a cautious friendship, but we had no idea that the Red Caps had followed them all the way across the sea!
They trapped us here, killed all the men, and watched our suffering for the last four hundred years! And we finally found a way to get rid of them!
But if you really think the spell we're going to use may hurt other magic life, you might be able to convince our leader to change her plans. of course, it won't be easy. me elders have had several centuries to harden their hearts against outsiders.
If you can defeat our leader, Mary Macomber, we'll listen to what you have to say. Otherwise, we'll go ahead with our plan.
Mary will really test you, Red Tomax. I think she'll surprise you quite a bit.
You feel a wise presence watching over you as you step into the spirit realm.
|Mary Macomber [Arch-Villain]|
Trust doesn't come easily to Mary Macomber, the leader of the Cabal. She's been in Croatoa too long. Still, your reputation precedes you, and she is willing to listen. If you can impress her in combat, that is.
Mission Complete: You defeated Mary macomber for good!
|X times the Victor|
Awarded for defeated Mary Macomber X times.
You've earned Mary's trust, and now there's a task she'd like your help with. One of our most powerful sorceresses has been captured by the Red Caps. Her name's Amy. If you could free Amy from the Red Caps, it would go a long way toward improving your reputation with the Cabal.
Any's one of my favourite aunts. Please take good care of her.
The moment you step into the Red Caps' den, you know you're being watched.
|Amy Jonsson The Cabal [Boss]|
Katie's aunt, Amy Jonsson, has been her primary caretaker since the Cabal was stranded in the mystical land of Croatoa. Amy has significant powers, which are a boon to any person she hopes to assist.
Mission Complete: You freed Amy.
According to Amy, the Red Caps are trying something really nasty. I don't know what it is yet, but I was just told that they've invaded my house! If you could get down there and get rid of the Red Caps for me, I'd sure appreciate it. And maybe you'll learn something while you're there.
I hope you hurry back. I've been feeling real tired lately, and I just can't take the stress.
This underground den smells of cinnamon and cloves.
Objective: Wormtail smirked: 'It's the end for your witchy friends, Red Tomax! Katie be ours!'
Mission Complete: you removed the Red Caps from Katie's home, but learned something terrible.
Listen closely, Red Tomax, because I don't have mcuh strength left. I believe the Red Caps have taken almost all of my soul. And I need you to free it. Go to the Grim Vale, where the Red Caps have battled my people all these centuries. I am certain that my soul is trapped there, in the spirit realm. My people will help you in your quest, but I believe only you have the strength to set me free.
Thank you, Red Tomax. I'll try to hang on.
A thunderous growl echoes across the vale.
Mission Complete: You saved Katie's soul from the Red Caps!
Awarded for completing the final mission of the Task Force.
Thank you, Red Tomax. You've brought hope back to my people. There will always be some who do not trust you, but I will always be in your debt. I hope someday we will find a way to be free of the Red Caps forever. Until then, at least I know that there are people in the world who can balance ther Red Caps' cruelty with unflinching virtue
I'm not the only believer, either. Amy wants to help you in your future travels. She's asked me to teach you a spell that will allow you to summon her five times. I hope she can help to protect you from the demons that always haunt the paths of the righteous.
