Five foreigners arrive separately on Amonkhet, only to be whisked into the care of the Viziers.
Vizier Talib directs them to Oketra’s Monument to be assigned a Crop. Trekking through the city, the group takes in the sights. At the temple they meet Vizier Neiro who assigns them to Heb Crop, a lower ranking Crop that’s short some members. Unfortunately, they must now walk all the way back.
They arrive to the Heb Crop’s training ground, where they meet the Heb Crop; Djent, the captain of the crop and Zaiid-humans, Mera-an Aven, Sito and Kato-Khenra twins and Sennu-a Naga. They also meet Vizier Atu, who is in charge of this Crop. The first Trial is explained to be the defence of an obelisk from the Afflicted, while a small group attempts to retrieve a fired arrow elsewhere. Everyone is in agreement that the new members will aid in defending the obelisk.
The rest of the day is spent training, then everyone turns in. Tili acquires a map of the city, Patanjali learns where to acquire alcohol, Nyrnet acquires portable water, and Victor examines some undead.
The next day, everyone meets up to start the First Trial. Positions are taken, racers are set, and the arrow is fired!
Elsewhere, unbeknownst to the foursome, Kaeriss joins her own Crop….
