I'm going to start putting the story all in one paragraph, like they typically do in LCC.
About this creation
Lord Gormeing had left the ship and several men behind, wanting to investigate the "Black Lotus" He took his best men as companions and went inland. When he came upon an outlaw fort, he decided to capture it and take supplies, and maybe some new "recruits" The plan went very well, as he and his men quickly cut down the three outlaw guards, and were moving on the last, when the unexpected happened. Two men jumped over the wall, knocked the Gormeing and his men down, and quickly made them surrender. His other man was stopped by another of Gormeing's companions, who turned out to be with the men. Gormeing agreed to follow the men to their base, as long as he and his men were kept alive, and safe.
