Name: Shard of the Traveler (Stormcaller)
++ The Sludge, European Dead Zone, Earth
Ghost: This forest is like a black hole. It just keeps pulling us back in. I suppose good things keep happening here… somehow.
**Guardian runs up a stream towards the Shard of the Traveler. An energy portal springs to life ahead of the Guardian and Ghost
Ghost: I see you haven’t changed much, portal. Still… huge and scary…
++ The Dark Forest, European Dead Zone, Earth
Ghost: Are you ready for weird story time? I’m ready for weird story time.
**An apparition of a Warlock sitting crossed legged appears
Ikora: As a Warlock, you are the unleashed storm. You are power unleashed. Focus. The Arc is inside all life. Feel it take hold. Let it flow through, but not consume you.
**Another apparition of a Warlock looking skyward appears
Ikora: You are a conduit. Between sky and earth. Electricity and matter. Life and death.
**In a little hollow, an apparition of Gu’urc, Venom of Oryx appears
Ikora: Yours will be a difficult path- jagged, like lightning itself. It is only the few who have power to call down the storm. I’ve not often seen this talent from someone so young. I always knew that you were different, but I never understood my unease. I’m afraid there is little left that I can teach you.
**As the Guardian turns away, Ghost detects incoming enemies
Ghost: Hey, we’ve got company!
**They fight through the enemies and jump through another portal
Ghost: Over there. Another projection.
**An apparition of a Warlock, reaching out appears just down the hill
Ikora: “Quiet”, said the Voidwalkers. “Louder”, said the Sunsingers. I tried to heed them both. When I felt anger, I smothered it with shame; when I felt peaceful, I drowned it in guilt. And in so doing, disappointed everyone. Then came the hurricane. First the rage, and then, the eye. And I realised I need not choose between the calm and the storm. Indeed, to have either, I must be both.
**As they walk along the path, another apparition appears of a Warlock summoning their Stormtrance
Ikora: Deep breath. Exhale. Faintest breeze. In, out, a spark on the wind. Inhale. Hold it. The air inside you is still. Quiet. A positive charge. A cloudless sky. Now exhale all at once- aaaaah! A peal of thunder. Electric potential. A charge in the air. Breathe in deep Ozone burns your lungs. Hold it. With your next exhale comes the lightning. Hold it. Hold it. Now!
**A final apparition appears, of a Warlock mid Stormtrance
Skorri: I close my eyes and open my mouth. A breath. A storm. A song. I blow a kiss for good luck on my Arcbolt Grenade and launch it at my foes. I launch a Thunderstrike and rain destruction from a distance. I call down a Stormtrance and sing my body electric. Second verse: Perun in shadow clad, behind the shield/ through cleansing fire our hiding foes revealed.
**Pushing forward on the path, Ghost spots the Shard
Ghost: There’s the Shard. Wait. Did you hear that? Taken, inbound!
**The Guardian fights their way to vanquish all the Taken that appear
Ghost: That Shard must have a little light left to give.
**The Guardian approaches the shard, reaching out to be filled with Light and becoming a Stormcaller
Ghost: Lets show the Taken what you’ve learned.
**The Guardian fights though waves of Taken, using their new Stormtrance to decimate them as they keep coming
Ghost: The Taken will do anything to stop us from leaving.
**The Guardian battles and triumphs over Gu’urc, Venom of Oryx
Ghost: Whew. Nicely done. Lets get out of here. I’m ready for a change of scenery.
**A portal appears, teleporting the Guardian and Ghost back to The Sludge, European Dead Zone
Ghost: I don’t know what the Traveler keeps choosing to grant us its powers. there must be others like us out there, fighting for what’s right.
