Campaign of the Month: November 2011
Avatar: Conquest of the Imperial Order
“I swear…on the memories of everyone lost today…” he hissed aloud, “For every drop of my kin’s blood spilt…I will take a gallon. My vengeance shall be swift and unrelenting, and I shall not rest until the Empire is shattered…” He took a shuddering breath. “…or I am. For as long as I draw breath, there shall be no peace for the Order.”
Bending down, he picked up his sword. As he began to move, he saw a figure struggling under a pile of burning rubble. It was a man, one of his own.
“Please, help me…” the man gasped. “Been stuck here for hours…can’t feel my legs…”
Talin stared at him coldly, then at the road the fire troops had taken. It would take hours to dig the man out, let alone see to his wounds. Slowly, he turned away and began walking, unsteadily at first, but quickly gaining confidence, toward his destiny. He never looked back, even long after the man’s desperate pleas for help had faded into the distance.
Kio was the Order soldier who inflicted the wound upon Talin. Shortly after the raid, Kio faced extraordinary emotional conflicts within himself about the actions taken in the name of the Order. This would eventually lead to him leaving the Order in the events that transpired with the groups meeting of The Avatar in Session 3.
