Lower City - Outpost 18
Below the glory of the Zaunite scientist and merchants, a thousands of plebs, common people live their daily lives. Those who can't afford living in the relatively safe houses in the center form slums, a dangerous districts with entirely different rules and worries that more civilized people have. Murder in those parts is not a crime - for noone sane would enforce law there.
In one of these poor districts stands a rough stone building with symbol of Zaun City Guard above the entrance and a rusty number "18". The outpost is led by captain Larisa Dren who is hopelessly trying to do the impossible - bring at least a spark of justice and hope in the dark alleys.
There were two people in the office now - a man, sitting at the main table reading newspapers, and a young girl writing something in case files.
As Larisa entered the office covered in blood, the girl, a bit shocked, ran for the medical kit. But the man's face turned red as Larisa was looking right into his eyes.
"So, you checked the Green Phantom Inn, right?" She was speaking slowly, coughing blood between the words.
"11 dead! 6 members of both gangs, innkeeper and 4 citizens. Magic and chemicals you incompetent fool!" Now, she was almost shouting. Meanwhile, the girl took off the top of captain's uniform and started to clean the long, fresh wound she had on her arm, while channeling a weak spell to lessen the pain.
"You two are going there immediately! Take Maerwin with you and let him analyze the chemical. If needed, quarantine the area. And identify the corpses, maybe they got someone important. But first, go to the training room and get me Sin."
When Sinlaia came to the office, Larisa was sitting in her chair with a bandage on the wounded arm.
"Stay here in case anyone comes. I need to get some sleep. Oh, and when Maerwin comes back, tell him to make me a bottle of anything that works against the gas that was out there."
Tribal girl nodded and sat at the table while Larisa went to sleep - she was living in the building, in one of the unused rooms.
((Felt like doing some interaction between my characters - I'll run the whole outpost. You can only meet Sinlaia now. Or maybe I decide to meet you when you do some shady business in the streets ))
