|The Voice From Beyond|
Mako's claw locks down on to one of the crates with an unnatural whirr, his servos barely straining. Stone grabs another two, while Reggie's bobs along behind him.
Deymish offers a satisfied grunt. "Right then. Let's get these to the clave's tower shall we."
Redstone is surprisingly empty as far as you can tell. The few villagers you can see on the street either appear to be napping, or have the sunken, dark eyes of the sleepless. Your boots stir up a thick red dust as you make your way towards the tower.
Mako, you know this to be quite unusual. The markets and tavern should be bustling with post-lunch activity.
The clave's tower is surrounded by a solid, circular wall. The wall is 3 metres high, half a metre thick, and made of redstone. A locked gate of iron bars blocks the entrance. Beyond the gate you can make out a lush, well maintained garden and lawn.
Before the gate stands a tall woman with pale brown skin and short hair. She wears brigandine armor and a helmet, and carries a long spear (she has a small sword as well). The woman eyes you suspiciously.
"Hold! Can I help you, strangers?"
