>> [GM]
>> Vesper too sees the strange orb-like bit of nothingness and its
>> erratic maneuvering.
>> Alex zeroes in on the strange orb, and it shows a human-like body
>> shape and heat signature, though the fog is too thick for regular
>> visual confirmation. The orb itself appears to have a very cold heat
>> signature, at least -50 degrees Fahrenheit.
>> Upon the next close approach, the figure can be glimpsed. It looks to
>> be a human (sex indeterminate), perhaps five foot six, carrying
>> something on its back and holding what might be a lantern in which the
>> strange orb-like apparition is contained. The person is also running
>> very fast, even if his or her progress seems very slow.
>> The figure is now coming very near, and as it approaches, suddenly the
>> mist seems to be driven away around Alex and Vesper, and they can see
>> that the figure is a young woman, and on her back is twins. She is
>> holding a lantern that is the cause of this effect, and they can also
>> see the path the woman is following as clear as day.
>> She looks at Alex and Vesper, cries out and begins to run faster, the
>> lantern's "light" quickly fading with her. In moments, Alex and Vesper
>> will be plunged back into the fog.

> [Alex]
> Confusion seems to reign these days.
> Alex responds, "If you think it best we follow her although she might be

> One thing with the way things are is not take off her armor.
> "Still, that beach is sounding better and better."

> [Vesper]
> "I would never ask you to take off your armor." a few moments later, "When

> "You can count on that beach trip, I promise."
> Vesper followed the woman seeing which way she went and wondering about
> the lantern the woman had and how it seemed to effect the fog.
> "Alex do you suppose it is light that clears away the fog ? I cant imagine the
> heat from that lantern being enough but perhaps that is one of the ways this

As Alex and Vesper talk, the woman turns around. "C-c-can you help
me?" the woman says. "Our village is under attack. I have my two
girls, but m-my son, I could not find him before the creature started
to attack. I shall lead you back to the village if you promise to find
my son."
