Nova Aetas - Mission 0.2 The Blood of Gaea

The messenger delivers the letter and informs the mercenaries of Egidio's orders. They will need to follow the instructions on the ancient map in the letter and take possession of an object that he calls the Blood of Gaea. So the companions head to the forest, following the map, until night falls and in the furthest corner of the thick forest, they catch a glimpse of something strange. On a stone altar, they see a shining object that looks like the one drawn on the map... they have reached their objective! The only problem is that it seems as if some bizarre creatures are keeping guard.

The mercenary companions approach carefully in the darkness. They are hoping they can take out the closest sentry quickly and quietly, which would enable them to advance closer to their objective before the other creatures notice their presence. Things don't go exactly as planned, however...

Nova Aetas - Mission 0.1 The Burning Hot Map

Egidio of Viterbo has instructed the mercenary company to meet with a messenger and accept the delivery of a highly secret and important letter. The four companions head to Spoleto towards the district of the village where they've been told to wait... The closer they get, the stronger the pungent smell of burning wood until they discover a group of men guided by a strange woman, setting fire to the homes in the district! What if they too are waiting for the messenger?

The companions gather around some carts (it is supposed to be a well in the middle, but I somehow lost the well token) and prepare to fend off the arsonists and find the messenger they were sent to meet.

Nova Aetas - Mission 0.0

After the umpteenth tavern fight sparked by a drunken friend, a unique band of free company mercenaries find themselves running through the narrow streets of Rome, when they unexpectedly hit a dead-end street. The only available escape route is being obstructed by a group of bandits. They need to find a way out of this dangerous situation before the group at their heels catches up to them.

Theodore the novice, William the squire, Elizabeth the apprentice, and Joanna the scum, resolve to fight their way through the bandits who are delaying them. They have known each other as part of the same free company, but now they will fight for their lives together in the back alleys of Rome.
