The Doomed Host

A fateful voyage
In which the 9th Earth Order is given new orders

The legend begins with the 9th Earth Order of the Civic Host being assembled from their various cities across the realm. The soldiers were informed that they had just been transferred from the Civic Host to the Paragon Host, as all four 9th Hives had been destroyed in the Sorcerer Kings current conflict. They were given less than an hour to muster for teleportation to the Paragon Hosts current location.

They were teleported from their safe assignments to the middle of a war torn city. The battle had long since passed their location, but they could see magical explosions and bolts of lightning further inland. The various unit leaders from Hive down to Cabal made their way to the Paragon Command center to receive their new orders. There they learned that King Mallax had just acquired a treasure of great importance that could not be teleported home but must be carried across the sea. Such was the importance of this task that he entrusted it to his own personal legion to see it safely back home. The only part of the Paragon Host to remain behind was the Auxiliary Swarm for his personal transportation while he cleaned up the battle.

The Doomed Host
In which the 9th Earth Order fails to protect the treasure and ends up strangers in a strange land

Now underwater, those not swept away by the surging wall of water were now locked in a battle between a unlimited swarm of transformed sea creatures and the need to breath. A few of the soldiers noted that a torch was still burning merrily in one of the corridors in the rear of the ship… a corridor no longer guarded as transformed creatures began to move belowdecks. So a small squad of soldiers led by the Coven Leader Uruviel, a Elven Wizard of the Dragon Coven, broke from the main circle protecting the deck entry to the cargo hold to plug the defense in the rear stairwell.

They found that a magical barrier prevented water from leaking belowdecks, which meant that there was a good chance that the ship would surface soon. Unfortunately, they also found that they now had to defend the location from fishmen attempting to gain entry and a transformed shark trying to clear them out from behind. Eventually, they were able to secure the door and moved below to try and protect the treasure. After finding the corpse of a transformed puffer fish, they moved down to the cargo hold to witness some sort of salt swarm taking out the guards there by draining the moisture from their bodies.
