Newly reclaimed farmland

Postby spsblue » Thu Jun 24, 2010 10:46 am

The retired soldier looks over the land, the undead finally beaten back enough for him to reclaim his own.

He spends days planting his crops, peaceful and uneventful. Finally he leans upon his hoe, and declares that it is good.

The farmer is knocked over by an earthquake, spilling his soup. Luckily the pot hasn't tipped over so he pours himself some fresh.

Another earthquake ruins the farmer's morning nap. Which causes a great deal of cursing.

The farmer sleeps in, the Earthquakes having kept him awake half the night. They've become quite common now.

When he wakes he sends one of his farm hands back into town to ask advice on what to do about this - something isn't right here. Especially as his crops have an odd pink tinge that wasn't there yesterday.

Heat emanates from the ground around the crops, the ground drying out, the thin fresh new stalks of wheat catching alight as the farmer rushes around in a panic trying to save what he can by chucking pitchers of water on them.

Now it is not just the crops that are burning, the soil itself is heaving and bubbling in the centre of the disturbance. The farmer abandons his hut as the flames approach.

The abandoned field now has smoking bulge in the middle of it. Pebbles occasionally appear at the top and roll down its sides.

Early in the morning a Varyan patrol arrives on top of a nearby ridge. Turning to the farmer, the leader speaks to him.

" I'm not sure what you expect us to do here mate. We've no experience with magic. The heroes have been called - perhaps they can do something. "

The farmer sighs as he looks over at new mound where once his field of crops stood.

" Well it is too late for my crops now. And it has grown again. "

For the mound was now bigger than the farmer's hut and peppering the aforementioned hut and the area around it with flaming projectiles.
