While hunting a strange brown colored animal with horns, Narloq froze in mid step. He smelled something else in the air. The smell of corruption! Abandoning his hunt, he followed the scent back to human camp. There were 4 humans clustered around a fire eating and drinking. As Narloq watched and waited, he planned his attack. With one final look around, Narloq rose from his haunches, and froze. The man that just emerged from the large box on wheels, was exactly the the same as the human in is visions. The man Sotek wanted him to kill. Unbridled hatred and righteous wrath broiled inside Narloq, and with a ferocious and fearful rear he attacked.
The fist man never saw what killed him as Narloq's jaws closed around his throat, breaking his neck. Throwing his mangled body aside, Narloq impaled the man in front of him with his blade. While freeing his sword, the remaining men attacked, scoring a few quick hits against Narloq's toughened hide. Snarling with frustration at his impaled blade, Narloq took yet more hits, one biting deep into his side, opening a gash and bleeding freely. Yanking his sword out and turning with a snarl, Narloq beheaded one of the men. Turning he faced the last man standing, and with a snarl he charged forward. Three steps from this puny human, he was blasted off his feet in a wave of heat. Landing hard, Narloq looked around to see where this attack had come from.
Ah yes, how could he be so careless! Narloq had forgotten about the man in his visions. Looking to see where the man he had charged was, Narloq saw that he was little more than a burned corpse. Bellowing with rage and hatred of evil, Narloq charged the man from his visions. The man hurled another ball of glowing orange as Narloq charged him, enveloping Narloq in intense heat, burning the scales off his chest. Roaring in pain and rage, Narloq hurled his blade at this human. His throw did no damage, as the man easily dodged aside, but it allowed Narloq to close the gap and slaughter the man with his bare claws and jaws. As the man fell limp for Narloq's jaws, a stone fell from his robes. Narloq picked the stone up and peered at it, and roared in triumph. This was the stone he had seen in vision from Sotek, he knew this is why Sotek had sent him into this forest. he knew now that his journey was ready to truly begin. After feasting well, and in the breaking light of the new dawn, Narloq strode off into the forest.
