Week 1: Aeslin versus Vincent St. Clair
Aeslin wins 7-5

They say the Traveler came into town from space. There's a new crater off my front porch to prove it. We were once a peaceful town, but now? Everyone wants to come and see this Traveler.

The two armies came from the north and south, didn't even use the gate, didn't even care about the river, just forced their way through. One of the guys, Vincent, seemed to suddenly appear out of the shadows just to talk to the Traveler and see what he had to offer. But, I don't think that was a great plan, because he got shot down pretty quick by the vine woman, who allowed him no escape. After both groups chasing each other through the neighborhood Vincent's crew was nearly dead. The late-Vincent's team was trying a pincer attack on their foes, but their force was too much. With only one lone Shieldbearer and one zombie dancer left of his team, they attempted their last stand against their foes. They decided to go straight for their leader, Aeslin. After fighting with Aeslin and nearly killing her, one of the Autumn Knights denied Vincent's crew the satisfaction of the kill and instead took her life for the greater good – for Titania, whoever that is.

But maybe now things can go back to normal and that Traveler will go and harass someone else's town.

Week 1: Barbaros versus Vincent St. Clair
Barbaros wins 4-3

A new scent is in the cold air.

This never happens. Should not happen. We will make sure this never happen again. Barbaros will fix this problem.

"Hassshk! Earth-man come! Sssssmell death!"

Barbaros' harsh voice echoed and distorted inside his helm, forcing him to give orders with the Invader's tongue instead of the more natural hisses and grunts of his Nephilim birth. The Young and the Tots squealed with glee, while a looming silhouette approached the nightmarish cadre.

"Qashhhax! Give me the pot!"

The massive shadow stepped from its hiding place, the weak sunlight just peaking over Slate Ridge revealing another mountain, but in a more humanoid form. Mr. Graves silently took three strides toward the cripple while the other demonic creatures gave him a wide berth. The bouncer cradled the requested pottery with more care than one would expect from such an intimidating frame. Barbaros tossed his macuahuitl aside to snatch the corked pot from the bouncer's embrace.

"Earth-man take our land, take my wingsss, take take TAKE! Ssssssssss! No more! Mother sssay we protect Travel-man, ssso we do! They no TAKE Travel-man!"

While his brothers screamed for blood, Barbaros uncorked the pot.

Week 1: Bad Juju versus Ototo
Ototo wins 10-4

Evidence #0021574-AB. Discovered Ten Thunder missive, dredged out of the Bayou south of Malifaux 116 p.f. Guild-ordered translation performed over the next three months. Difficult to complete translation due to use of several Three Kingdom dialects, characters, and ciphers, let alone physical damage to document. Reads as follows:

One Eyed Dragon, Daimyo's Daughter, [REDACTED]

Priority Target: Traveler, ASAP, outside QZ walls of Burns

Details: Target has details pertaining to [REDACTED]. Must capture and interrogate on site. Information time sensitive. Expect resistance from target and/or encroaching Neverborn [UNTRANSLATED]. Capturing alive for later questioning at safehouse in [CIPHERED] also acceptable, but not ideal. If overtaken by Neverborn, execute. List of questions are as follows. Use any means necessary to retrieve information…

Document appears to continue, but due to the incompleteness of the torn paper, water damage, and numerous blood stains, the last half of the page is indecipherable.

Week 1: Aeslin versus Datsue Ba
Aeslin wins 9-6

The night was dark, and ancient powers unseen in Malifaux for centuries stalked the streets once more. Aeslin, Dryw to the Autumn Queen, surveyed the igneous scar left by Cherufe's escape. While the fissured streets had cooled to a craggy flow of black glass and stone, fires still glowed deep beneath, casting an infernal glow over the Quarantine Zone block.

Aeslin tilted her head, addressing the entourage behind her, never taking her eyes off the landscape. "The Tooth. Your's is the season of heat and drought. Through the trials of many suns and flames, death leads to rebirth. What does your eyes see?"

The Tooth, interpreting the Dryw's question as leave to approach, took lithe steps toward the overhang where Aeslin floated. She squinted; while indeed the glow of magma still flowing under the pockmark landscape gave sufficient light in the moonless night, the plumes of ash and smoke obscured much.

"I see… yes, I see a figure. It must be the Traveler as promised. But, he is not alone. The glow of departed spirits swirl around him."

"How many?" Aeslin demanded, not hiding the irritation she felt. The coachman promised no other parties, mortal or otherwise, knew the Lonely Traveler was in Malifaux. The Dryw actually chuckled as the Claw struck the foolish mortal down; it was fitting, that the ancient Traveler's reentry to this part of the QZ would be the harbinger of the Queen's own return to this world.

"Five, maybe six? It is hard to tell."

"No matter," the Thorn shrugged as she unspooled her vine whips. The Changeling at her feet mimic the motion, summoning shadowy imitations of her weapons in it's pink, childish hands. "We will inter the undead to the repose they deserve, feeding our roots once more."

There was a squeal of frozen bark plates shifting and grinding together. While the Claw said little, Aeslin knew without turning around that the Fae drawing his spear was a sign of agreement with the Thorn.

"Very well. Autumn Knights, strike down these poor creatures, but leave the Traveler alive. He and I have much to discuss…"
