Samantha comes to the Dragon Guardian Temple greatly more distressed then usual! Her rich gem collecting uncle, Count Gemmire, has stated in a family reunion that he aims to go to the Citi System to finally score a Super-Rarium from the planet Citi Superior. He said that by tomorrow, he had already gone to Citi Inferior and established an exbitdition crew to seek out the highly valuable stone. Thus, they and the Heroes Act arrived to Citi Inferior and found Gemmire in a roughhowser club and having already recurited a gang of mercenaries for the exbitdition: A female Pharcum named Roadrash, a female Eathae named Yatias, A male Phend named Nagus The Spirit Guide, A male Kraetan tec genius named Garoo, A Pyro-Tecnic Finkur named Fin-Boom, A Snailneck named Cletus Bo Metus, and Roadrash's Omnican, X-tron. At first, the heroes didn't felt comfertable around these mercenaries given that they lead violent lives, but as the group go through quite an exspearience, from sand horrors to sand storms, the heroes came to better understand the stories behind these mercs, Roadrash being an exile for a mistake of failing to protect an impourent Pharcum political figure from an assassin, Yatias being a runaway framed traitor of her people, Nagus being part of a defected Phend family that had nowhere to go but Citi Inferior, Garoo being too dorky for the Kraetans, Fin-Boom being a destructive mess, Bo Metus for being a critic to his people's current standerds, and X-Tron being from a discontinued war Omnican line. This sense of better appresiation came just in time, as they are sought after by the followers of a Grutt crimelord named Jarmon the Gem Luster, Riffus and Raffus, two Zhaerunia brother treasure hunters in Jarmon's service, Gore Tyla, A Spidklon personal enforcer of Jarmon, A Phend-Killer Rabodan by the name of Xenokla, Jarmon's repurposed Starbot "Spine-Breaker", an Alpha Manbeetle, A bounty hunter after Yatias' hide hired by her framers named Gulla Bett, and finally, Roadrage, Roadrash's brother who blames her for failing to protect the political leader and had aimed to come after her to have her punished by the family council. While being chased by these hunters, the group ended up being swooped up by one of the collosal creatures, being reveiled to have been saved by the native Citimites. Their leader agreed to help them find the Super-Rarium, but in return to help them fight off a rising infestation of giant parasitic tick monsters and get them off of their collosial beast home. However, Gazelle, even acknowledging that the creatures are a threat to the creature's well being, doesn't have it in her to harm the parasites, only being product of instinct. Can our heroes slove this on their own since forcing Gazelle is a no go, all the while, find a way to put a halt to Jarmon's trouble-making?
