Trial Of The Wan Hai

A Test of Worth

Two weeks passed by all too quickly as the party grew closer to their goal, to find a spot for a suitable outpost, an abandoned Kobold settlement. Passing the time by sharing what the last few years had been like and how they saw themselves helping to shape the Yuan-Ti empire or how they saw their demise. They are after all, an experiment, an trial depending solely on their ability to come through this alive and successful.
In seemingly no time at all they arrived at their destination, a cave snuggled tightly into the surrounding landscape, covered in vines and hiding its secrets from the light of day. Upon a thorough but quick search, they discovered the last few of the Kobolds blocking off their village from the outside world. Hoping to ambush these nuisances, they attempted to surround and slay them quickly, however Diao Gua gave away their presence, whether on purpose or accident, but they finished off every last one in seconds. In a few minutes of interrogation, Diao Gua learned of the settlement and a group of humans who had previously happened upon this area. This may lead to trouble for the party as they are very inexperienced and they are likely due back at any time… As they slept through the night, Tie kept guard and watched for any signs of movement, when suddenly a voice called out to him. “Ho there.” Caught completely off guard, Tie manages to quickly think and invite the stranger in out of the rain, after a struggle with words and a likely story, the human leaves with promises to return with his party. Quickly awakening his companions, Tie explains what had happened and they prepared several ideas to dispatch this new threat. As the night drew on the party returned and was slowly lured into a false safety. They told of their travels, killing Yuan-Ti left and right, children and adult alike all with a sick sense of glee. The party knew what needed to be done, if only they had a perfect moment to strike. Soon the humans grew tired and felt safe with their hosts, and arranged for rest. Their first mistake was to cross the Yuan-Ti, this was to be their last. As the visitors slept, blades were drawn one by one but with a single thought in mind. It was time.
