Somewhere near Falconreach...
*In the forest, a rift opens, and a horned humanoid creature appears, kneeling.*
??? (1): ...
*The unknown creature stands.*
??? (1): Come. Quickly!
*Two other creatures appear through the portal, appearing to belong to the same race.*
??? (2): This... This is..?
??? (1): No time for that now. What of the others?
??? (3): They're coming.
??? (1): Let's go.
*Meanwhile, back in Falconreach, the Guardians have noticed the rift.*
Guardian Riggs: Sir!
Guardian Riggs: Strange beings are showing up at our gates, sir!
Guardian Kain: How many?
Guardian Riggs: A-a lot, sir.
Guardian Kain: Are they hostile?
Guardian Riggs: I-- I don't think so. Some of the other guardians say they've seen them lurking around at night, but they haven't attacked anyone.
Guardian Kain: ...
Guardian Kain: Let them in. But keep an eye on them.
Guardian Riggs: Aye, sir!
*Guardian Riggs leaves.*
Guardian Kain: Brandus.
Guardian Brandus: Sir?
*Guardian Kain looks up and closes his eyes.*
Guardian Kain: Send word to <Character> and the other heroes.
Guardian Kain: Something doesn't feel right.
Guardian Brandus: Aye.
*Back at the rift, several imps are also coming through the portal; back in Falconreach, the Guardians are speaking with the unknown race.*
??? (4): We mean you no harm. We seek shelter..
Guardian Kain: What are you running from?
??? (4): We--
Guardian: GUARDIAN KAIN!
*The Guardian approaches.*
Guardian: Sir! Fire monsters.. they're swarming the East gate!
Guardian Kain: Get men there straight away! Brandus, send word to the tower, and gather the heroes!
*A huge blast of fire sends everyone to the ground and leaves a crater.*
Guardian Kain: Argh!
*Guardian Kain looks up.*
Guardian Kain: Not on my watch... ATTACK!
*Guardian Kain leads a charge toward the fire monsters, as you enter and kneel by the fallen.*
<Character>: Are you folks alright?
??? (5): I am fine. *hrk* Go... I'll tend to the wounded.
*You nod and run towards the fire monsters; scene fades to black.*
