Participants: Arni, Scylax, Miklos, Alexios Grogs: Whatever unfortunate, non-claustrophobic pleb you order to
[tab][/tab]Since word came from Anastaj's informant this past Summer that a new cave was found near Ioannina, some of the more adventurous of you wanted to go and take a look-see. Who knows what might be found there, magic, treasure, vis!The Vlach was not in favor of dragging his body through the wilderness just to enter a dark, smelly cavern, so he opted out and invited anyone who wanted to make the effort to go ahead, ''...and the folly on your head...'' you could hear him muttering about the hard heads of youth. So you need to make a team that will bravely (or brazenly) go and explore the caves near Perama village.
[tab][/tab] This is easier said than done though. Your first obstacle is organization. Someone must put all the supplies needed together (both for outside and inside the caves), bring trusted people who can handle themselves, expert spelunkers and nimble bodied warriors, organize and lead the search party, while at the same time keep everything as secret as you can. Companions are interested mainly about any treasure or precious metals and stones that might be found than magical stuff (for the covenant's income of course). The covenfolk as always is divided by racial profiles; Greeks have a glint in their eye and are readily supportive of the expedition (whether from adventure lust or greed you cannot say); Vlachs caution about weird caves. These mountains abound with them, and usually weird creatures have already laid claim to them. Ogres and Dragons are not that uncommon; Slavs are superstitiously worried about ghosts of dead explorers and deeply buried gates to the underworld from where nasty devils spawn. Well, you wont know until you search the cave, will you?....
