[Minecraftia, January 15]
The Guild master stood in his room, as he stared out across the plains the guild had been built upon. Below a minecart track station was being unloaded as a freshload of supplies for the smithy and chef came in from the nearby village, and two of his soldiers were having a sparing match on the training pad with the others betting on who'd win. It was like any other night.
The Hunters were patrolling the outside keeping out any bold thieves hoping to make a quick buck and the inkeeper on the lower floor was waiting diligently for weary "would be" heroes to come back after another tiresome night of keeping the peace.
The guild was surrounded on all four sides by small farm and mining villages and most of the people having finally finished the work for the night were turning in...
suddenly, mayhem. A fire breaks out in a forest to the north, right as it strikes 12 midnight and from the woods come cries of agony. Wasting no time a group of hunters report to the Master.
"S-sir! There's been an attack! The Forest village was suddenly engulfed in flames!" The hunter said still panting.
"Are there survivors?" The guild master said turning to him.
"Y-yes, there seems to be, but they're in bad shape. We don't know what happened. The guy downstairs said that the survivors are saying things about knights in iron armor with red eyes and creepy mages in crimson garments!" The hunter replied.
"An act of war against the people of Minecraftia? What group of people would dare take up arms against the people who basically raised them?" The guild master asked calmly.
"We don't know! They simply appeared out of no-where leaving behind bloodstained stone and parched earth. When we got there there was almost nothing. Burnt to the ground! Nothing except stunned survivors and a giant hole that goes down god knows how far! You can't see the bottom!"
"*sigh* Calm down. Bring the survivors to the guild and we'll heal them and give them shelter until we can rebuild."
"Yes sir! But whatabout the other towns? If they got this close surely they would have done this to villages further than our borders can see!"
"We will tend to our own first, because fanning out could be exactly what they want us to do. Wake the runners. I know it's late but we need to get word out to the other kingdoms across the continent to keep an eye out for the band that did thi- ...!" The Guild master stopped cold in his speech.
"S-sir?" The hunter asked. But the guild master stayed frozen still, his hand carefully and slowly reaching to his sword sheathed at his side. The hunter looked out and saw what he was looking at. Standing on a tree outside the guild was a tall 3 block high man with stick like limbs, and it was staring right at the guild master before suddenly in a flash it disappeared, "Sir... what the hell was that...!?"
"I don't know, but I have the terrible feeling we'll find out soon..." The guild master replied unable to relax and he continued to wait and wonder what the unkown creature was...
