With the current refugee problem proving dire with winter approaching and who knows what lurking in the forests of Kings Hollow, Elros approaches the refugees to try to persuade them to work with his friends and the Stormcrows. He knows that the events of KK are still very recent, but Kings Hollow has its own set of looming threats, and he wants to make sure that the refugees understand the current position that they are in. He makes the following speech:
"Former citizens of Kripple Kreek, I am Elros Elendae, a member of the Baronial House here in Kings Hollow. I first and foremost want to thank you for your assistance and help that you have provided around the village. I have heard of the events that have transpired at Kripple Kreek...and I want you to know that although I was not there first hand, I grieve with you for the lives that have been lost that day."
He pauses a moment to gather his thoughts, knowing that each and every word he chooses is critical.
"It is my hope, that you will never have to live through such a tragedy again. It is with this hope, that I am here today." He smiles and gestures to the Stormcrows.
"These individuals here are some of the finest warriors that I know. They may look a little menacing (he says with a chuckle) but once you get to know them, they are wonderful people. They are strong, courageous, and some of the best friends that I have. They are the Stormcrows."
He then turns to Riyu, Rook and Nyxx.
"I would now like to introduce you to Riyu, Rook and Nyxx, some of my oldest comrades. Riyu is an expert at self defense and would be more than willing to train with anyone interested in learning how to defend themselves. Rook and Nyxx are some of the finest healers we have here in town and will be more than happy to mend any wounds, or teach those interested in the art of essence magic."
"All of these fine people, including myself, have offered to protect each and every one of you while we work together to create your new home."
He then turns back to the crowd and a more serious look crosses his face.
"Now, I will be honest with you, we are a small village, limited on resources and space. This should come as no surprise to you, as you have experienced this over the past few months. Unfortunately, our town has its own set of looming threats, that makes expansion difficult. I want to be honest and frank with all of you that these threats are real and the town guard is stretched thin. As I said before, it is my hope that you never have to experience the tragedy that occurred in Kripple Kreek again, and so I ask this of you."
"Protect your loved ones, yourself, and all others by training with my friends and I. Take destiny into your own hands and learn to defend what you hold dear. By doing so, you can ensure that history will not repeat itself."
"We will set up daily training sessions for any that are interested in learning martial or magical arts. In exchange, I ask that we all pull together to create your new home. In exchange for your time spent gathering resources, and constructing, I offer you citizenship of Kings Hollow on behalf of Count Decklin. This path will not be easy, but together we can make this happen.
Once I have determined a plan on where to build, and how to gain the necessary resources, I will let all of you know." He then smiles and proceeds to get to work.
