You are the TEMPLAR, a holy knight sent to clear the frontier of monsters and heresy!

Currently, you were overlooking an Elven camp from a watchtower you had "commandeered" from the Elves. Morgan, of course, was next to you, her eyes narrowed as she focuses on the distant sight.

"This is going to be a problem." She mutters. "There's already a pretty sizeable warband out there. Twenty warriors, at least. And that's not counting the patrols and scouting parties they've likely got roaming the forest."

You nod and crack your knuckles. You were always up for a fight.

"Honestly, this isn't something we can just brute force our way through." Morgan rolls her eyes, her ears twitching in annoyance. "If those Mages are still alive, their firepower could tip the scales in our favor, but that means actually finding them first."

You nod in agreement with her assessment.

"So... the best way would be for one of us to try and lead the bulk of them away from the camp while the rest take out whatever they leave behind and get into the Ruin." Morgan continues.

That plan had merit. However, you realize that it would have to hinge on Morgan herself. She was fast and stealthy enough to lead the Elves on a merry chase, but those same skills also made her good for slipping through the camp while its defenses were down.

>Have Morgan be the distraction.
>Have Morgan infiltrate the camp.
>Other
>>
>>1942025
>>Have Morgan infiltrate the camp.

I have the perfect plan: Using our combined arts and crafts skills, we can fashion a pair of fake elf ears so Morgan can look sorta like an elf from a distance!

Now we just need some water, and clay.
>>
>>1942025
>Have Morgan be the distraction.
The way I see it we have little stealth, and are not nimble enough to escape pursuit. So while not ideal, Morgan drawing away a significant portion of the elves without engaging leaves us just a few to deal with (killing since we have no stealth). The other option has us taking on the full 20 while morgan sneaks in. Bad for us, and we're unlikely to get away without much of a fight unlike morgan.

>Have Morgan infiltrate the camp.

Let's be real there ain't no bigger distraction to the elfs then us.
>>
>>1942025
>Have Nino blow them the fuck up
Shock and awe
>>
>>1942025
>Have Morgan be the distraction.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if her, or our party's notoriety increases among the elves due to her white hair.
>>
>>1942060
That's a full 20 elves though, even if morgan only takes a few rounds to free theoretically battle ready magic people for a big damn heroes moment (lot of 'ifs' in that equation) that's still us vs. 20 for a few rounds. We could try a more subtle distraction, but I don't see that drawing many people away unless we reveal that there's a templar wanting a fight in the brush. So we are a big distraction, but unlike morgan we can't run away from a hugeass fight.
>>
>>1942082
Just have Nino backing us up If the elfs surround us let her fo full purge like she went last time.
>>
>>1942025
>Other
Actually, wouldn't it be possible to have Nino start some fires in the forest and have the elves (tree lovers that they are) start panicking about putting it out as we sneak past them?

We could also try to make the fire seem like an accident if we want to be more sneaky?
>>
>>1942025
>Have Morgan infiltrate the camp

We are a recognized member of an elf hating group. There is no way they could ignore us.
>>
>>1942104
Sorry forgot to add, but does Nino perhaps have delayed fuse fire magic? Since that could cause even more panix for the elves and throw off our possible location (depends on how much tine we have though).
>>
>>1942104
Or we can just be a templar burning the trees? NOW THAT is a distraction.
>>
>>1942116
>>1942111
How about something risky like barricading the treehouse tower we're in, setting the tower on fire, and pretend to be elves that can't escape for one massive ruse?

You point to Nino and then to the surrounding forest. A few fires here and there would be more than enough distraction, right?

"You're seriously asking to deliberately start a forest fire... while we're in the forest?" Morgan frowns. "I mean, I'm sure it'll work, but if the fire gets too big..."

You put a hand on her shoulder. Things should be fine. You then turn and wave at Nino to come over.

"Yeah, what do you need?" She asks happily.

You point to her spellbook, then to the forest, and wiggle you fingers around to signify a blazing fire.

"A forest fire? Can do!" Nino says with her usual enthusiasm.

Suddenly, the entire camp EXPLODES in a pillar of flame, as if Sol himself had flung a fiery spear down to the earth. Even from this distance, the rush of hot air hits you like a brick wall. Morgan fortunately had quick enough reflexes to take cover behind you.

"WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!" Naru sreeches from inside the treehouse.

On the tree itself, the leaves are practically blown off their branches, smoldering and smoking from the heat.

All the while Nino is laughing at the destruction she's wrought.

Once the wind does down, you turn your gaze back to the camp, which has been reduced to a blackened crater. The Ruin entrance remains intact, still jutting out of the ground, its ancient construction undoubtedly sparing it from the magical assault.

"So? Did I do good?" Nino turns to you happily.

You pat Nino on the head. She did a good job. Now your little elf problem was solved.

"Sol's light." Naru grumbles as she pokes her head out the door and sees the mayhem. "Nino blew something up again? I swear we gotta put this squirt on a leash or something."

"I was doing what he asked!" Nino sticks her tongue out.

"Hey, cool it, you two." Morgan takes back charge of the situation. "The camp's gone, but that's going to draw the attention of every Elf for miles. Whatever we do, we need to get moving quick."

You manage to reach the remains of the campsite without any issue. Seems like the patrols were pretty far out.

"Huh, that's odd." Nino blinks as she looks at the door.

"What?" Naru asks as she hobbles up, still laden with captured gear.

"There's a protective ward on this door keeping it sealed." Nino explains, kneeling down. "Definitely made by a Mage. Looks like they sealed themselves in the Ruin."

"Not hard to imagine why." Morgan notes as she looks at the still smoldering tents and bones scattered all over the area.

"Well, it's simple enough to crack. Any Mage can do it." Nino nods as she draws a series of circles and runes on the door.

"Someone should stay out here to keep an eye on things." Morgan suggests. "We don't want to get trapped in there like the Mages."

You motion for the others to go inside. You'll stand watch at the entrance.

"All right, we'll be sure to hurry." Morgan nods to you. "You sure you can handle this on your own?"

Well, Naru could provide valuable healing and support, while Nino could throw out serious firepower. However, keeping them up here would deprive them of helping down below...

You give a reassuring nod and point for them to get going. The more time they were standing around was more time for the elves to regroup.

"Okay, just don't do anything stupid." Morgan sighs as she dashes in to the Ruin.

"See you later!" Nino waves as she turns and dashes after Morgan.

"Don't get too busted up. Heals ain't free." Naru closes.

As the three girls head down, you stand in front of the entrance, ready to face anything that came your way.

You wait at the entrance for several minutes, waiting to see if anybody would come. And sure enough, you do catch sight. A pair of elves, one armed with twin swords and the other with a bow, come sprinting in. Through the smoke and haze, they don't seem to realize you're there.

You wonder if it's worth trying to pick a fight with them.

You suddenly get an idea and kneel down, grabbing handfuls of ash and rubbing it all over your armor. Some smoldering embers also stuck on the edges and crevices, making look all the more intimidating. You knew that back in the first battle of your Order, the ashes of the burnt Elven trees clung to the once silver armor of your founders, staining them permanently black. What the paladins saw as a mark of shame, and the Elves as an unforgivable sin, your founders took as a badge of honor.

You were simply carrying out those ancient rites, striding forwarding with your ash and ember covered armor, smoking wafting and flowing off your body.

You're not quite sure what exactly those two Elves thought they saw when they caught sight of your body marching out of the smoke, but it was certainly something that terrified them. The two Elves scream and run the other way, dropping their weapons.

Ah, so it did work.

Another half hour or so passes, and no other Elf ventures near the burnt campsite. Perhaps those scouts you scared off warned their compatriots to stay away?

Well, you weren't complaining. You turn to see Morgan leading a line of tired, disheveled looking Mages. Their apparent leader, a Mage wearing a pointed hat and a pair of glasses, stumbles forward.

"Thank you for coming to rescue us." She pants. "We were studying the entrance when the Elves ambushed us and we took refuge inside. They were trying to starve us out-"

Especially true when some of them like using much bigger weapons than templars, or some of them are actually rather nice.

Because they are missionaries and totally not assassins dressed as missionaries. Our Sect of Sol does not send nun assassins disguised as missionaries to commit cowardly acts of murder.

Despite the forced march, you don't run into any sort of obstacle, be it monster, Elf, or otherwise. In fact, the journey back was rather uneventful, despite some complaints from the soft skinned and VERY soft footed Mages. You should remember to mention to the Archmagus that they should spend more time outside.

As you head back to the city, Ursula, the expedition leader, fills you in on what had happened. She and her group had arrived at the Ruin to analyze the mana emanating from it, as well as any relics they could recover. However, they were then accosted by a group of Elves, who warned them to leave immediately. Mages being Mages, of course, ignored them. Then the Elves returned in greater numbers and armed.

It was at that point that the expedition took shelter inside the Ruin and sealed themselves inside, hoping the lack of communication to the Tower would prompt them to send relief.

"So do you know why they were so interested in the Ruin?" Morgan asks.

"No idea." Urusla shakes her head. "And I can't imagine it has anything to do with the elevated mana levels. Elves use a completely different form of magic from us so they don't need mana."

"Maybe one of the relics you picked up?" Naru suggests.

"It's a possibility." Ursula nods. "But with all the samples we collected, it could be anything. It would take weeks, maybe even months to sort it all out."

"I could help with that... for a price." Naru offers.

"Thanks, but we'll decline." Ursula laughs nervously. "Even we Mages know of your reputation."

"Of course." Naru sighs.

And soon enough, you could see Eisenwand in the distance.

"Thank you, Templar. I think we can handle it from here." Ursula bows her head to you.

You nod to the others to head back to the Monastery. You'll escort the Mages all the way back to the Tower. Couldn't be too careful, after all.

"Understood. We'll go check up on Niko and Havel." Morgan nods.

"I'm coming, too!" Nino grabs your hand. "I wanna show that skullhead Elias that I can take care of myself!"

"Now that you mention it, that whole camp was saturated with mana." Ursula blinks. "Don't tell me all fire was from you?!?"

"Yep!" Nino nods and smiles, obviously proud of herself.

"Her potential is beyond our initial calculations then..." Ursula mutters to herself. You're not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

Nevertheless, you accompany the haggard Mages back to the city and up to the gates of the Tower. Fortunately, you did not run into any trouble at all.

Well, apart from the Twins guarding the gate.

"So you're still alive after all!" Caroline huffs. "Didja get lost again, Ursie?"

"No, and it's Ursula!" The Mage groans.

"The Archmagus will be eager to hear your report." Justin says simply, and then scans Ursula's tattered and soiled robes. "Perhaps after you had a chance to tend to yourself."

"Y-yes, of course." Ursula nods and turns to you. "Erm, thank you for your assistance, Templar."

"And?" Nino coughs.

"And yours too, Nino." Ursula adds.

"Hehe!" Nino giggles.

"Don't get ahead of yourself! You're still a kid!" Caroline growls.

"You are, too!" Nino sticks her tongue out.

"Oh dear." Ursula blinks.

Honestly, you don't have time for a catfight right now. You stride forward and and hit both Caroline and Nino's heads with a chopping motion from your hands.

"Owwwww!" They both whine.

"Errr, we'll be on our way, then." Ursula says nervously as she quickly shuffles through the portal with the other expedition members.

"The Archmagus is waiting." Justine says calmly and motions towards the portal.

You pat Justine on the head for being a good girl who doesn't start fights for no reason.

Meanwhile you could feel both Caroline and Nino staring holes into the back of your helmet. You do your best to ignore them as you step through the portal.

"Ah, Templar, excellent work!" Elias nods as your arrival, his eye sockets glowing a faint red like a hot ember. "The mission expedition is back and all accounted for, thanks to you."

You nod. It was was no big deal.

"I also do commend you going the extra mile to escort my young Mages all the way back to the Tower." Elias continues. "And I see it is young Nino here this time."

"Yeah! They all got back thanks to my help!" Nino boasts.

"I'm sure." Elias nods. "And it doesn't have anything to do with a pillar of fire in the sky, correct?"

"Um, you saw that?" Nino pauses.

"Nino, the entire city saw it." Elias shakes his head. "Caused quite the ruckus, and I received quite a number of correspondences from concerned parties."

"Well, they were asking for it!" Nino fires back.

"I thought we agreed it was best she not use her powers so recklessly like this." Elias turns to you.

You just give a single nod. You'll keep that in mind in the future.

"Well, I suppose I'll have to trust your word for not." Elias sighs."Now, I assume you're also here for payment."

You nod again.

"Hmmm, then what exactly do you desire?" Elias asks, his magical eyes focused on you.

Well, a monetary payout meant you could go to the market and purchase non-mage gear. Then again, Mage relics were always rather valuable, if not highly specialized. Then again, information also had its value...

"Morgan." You say simply.

Nino gasps at hearing you speak. If Elias was caught off guard, he did a very good job of hiding it.

"I see, I see.." Elias nods. He reaches out one hand and several books levitate out from a nearby bookcase. A sweep of his other arm clears his desk as all of the items on it float away.

"I would ask that you both sit down. This may take quite some explaining..."
