After returning from the Badlands, the Company of the Turbohorses decided to try to locate the leader of the Liferock Rebellion they learned of from the Blackheart goliath clan. They found Omasu in the city of V’strimon, and he had urgent business.
Rumor had it that some weeks before, in the Battle of Prajjor’s Field between Theran and Throalic forces, Thystonius himself had taken the field. This is not so unusual for the Passion of battle. However, more recent tales imply that the Passion was actually wounded in the battle and bled upon the ground. The magical powers of such blood would have great potential, and Omasu had become aware of dark forces that sought to use it to control the Passion himself.
In need of heroes to intercept these forces as swiftly as possible, he turned to the PCs. Obligingly they rocketed through the sky on glowing horses to the site of the battle. There they encountered multiple groups seeking the blood, as well as some of the Horrors drawn by the agony of combat.
First they crossed paths with a group of rakshasa, dark creatures from the deepest of the nether-realms, but not Horrors. Molokhai’s clever magics managed to isolate one of them while the PCs dealt with the others, but even without being able to bring their forces to bear together, they were formidable foes.
Then the Turbohorses were attacked by a mind flayer and his group of thralls (a flaming girallon, a leech walker, and a yuan-ti abomination). These were dealt with rather more easily, and the PCs continued their search of the battlefield.
