The temporal raider Aerthos and his apprentice, Idris, has hired the rest of you to act as traveling companions and extra muscle as Idris completes his training to become a temporal wizard. Little do the temporal mages realize that each has his or her own reasons for tagging along with this group, reasons that have nothing at all to do with amassing wealth. These secrets have kept the group together through raid after raid, fight after fight, and dimensional jump after dimensional jump.
Over the last few months the party has been traveling together, tensions between Idris and Aerthos have increased noticeably, and more than once, master and student have had extremely loud and vocal differences of opinion. Idris believes temporal raiding can be done without all the needless violence and cruelty, and Aerthos argues that the violence is something their victims will remember, thereby increasing the raider’s profile. The rest of you tend to side with Idris and there have even been half-hearted plans to do away with Aerthos once Idris becomes powerful enough.
