    SOS SONYA: Choose how the story continues!

    Dear settlers,

    Yesterday we posted an audio message our Social Media channels (Facebook, Twitter) to help us decipher a message written in Morse Code. Some of you managed to find out the message read SOS Sonya. But... what could this mean?

    Here is the rest of the story, where you would have to choose the way the story unfolds. Based on the worldwide majority of votes, the story will continue in one way or another.



    SOS Sonya

    Following the distress signal Sonya sent, you and a small team of explorers embark on a journey to locate the signal of Excelsior's latest known position. After a few days of intensive searches in barbarian realms, Excelsior finally appears on sight... and what a sight! The ship without its crew members seems to be abandoned near a small mountain path. While searching for hints, you come across footsteps in the light snow and decide to follow them. They lead you through a dangerously narrow mountain path, with small pebbles falling down from above here and there. In the distance you see a fading purple light flickering through the falling snow; this must be Sonya!

    While moving towards her, the falling snow turns into a blizzard and the atmosphere changes – you feel a light frizzle in the air. You pat her slightly on the shoulder and as she turns to look at you, you notice a wounded, seemingly frozen man in her arms. The man seems to hold onto his life and also to a strange stone figurine. You hear her whisper "he got it from an old ruin, we need to save him and find that place". Together with Sonya you take the man back to the Excelsior as she explains how her crew disappeared one after another on the mountain path, how she encountered the magic in the air and then finally stumbled upon this cursed man. The stone figurine, now in her possession, is shining with a bright light. She asks you what to do next.



    Happy voting,

    Wait patiently for the Mountain Clan Campaign stuff to go to the test server is what I am going to do. Maybe we'll have an answer about that mountain that was added a while back too.

    Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance. Destroying the figurine could have dire consequences.

    Feed them hot soup and wait for more information. Spend our time waiting preparing the Troops and educating our leaders (Expl/Geos/Gens). Scout the surrounding area and prepare defences/set watches. Rotate Troops to keep them warm/fed and alert.

    Maintain vigilance, all no man/woman by themselves (even to relieve themselves), teams of 3 to maintain visual on everyone, build a fire in the cave to get everyone warmed up and able to move if/when needed.
    I agree with Forrell, destroying the figuring could be dire indeed. It could be the key to the lost troops.

    i agree with Forrell don't destroy the statue. set guards around the excelsior making sure they are in sight of each other, short shifts to keep every one alert. move your ship further away from the Excelsior in case of trouble arrange to exchange signal lights at 15 minute intervals threw the night, regroup in the morning.
    Test to see if the statue shines for just Sonya , or if it is any one holding it makes it shine.
    Start preparing rations, weapons and troops for the march to the cave as soon as the strange man awakens./

    1. Click Champion Nusala. 2. Assign to her 180 longbowmen thanks to Garrison Annex giving her 15 more. 3. Command her to march down the path removing anything which might have captured or killed the Excelsior crew. 4. Enjoy the recreational facilities on the Excelsior until she returns with her troops and reports about what she found.

    you need to see if the idol will glow when in the possession of others or just Sonya. See if the magic in the air is from the idol itself or in combination with who has possession of it. Remove the idol away from the poor frozen man to see if the idol has a hold over him. If the idol is the center of all of this, then it's time to cut your losses and retreat to a distance you hope will be far enough away to save your group.

    Magic can be extraordinarily dangerous if you don't fully understand it. Destroying the statue or hastily returning to the mountain without first trying to get more information seems the height of foolishness and could bring disastrous results.
