I literally said there is a beacon light on a distant hill so you opted to go check it out. I didn't have any idea what was up there until the second session. First session was them making characters, and then running into a group of Urhur Orcs who also went to check out the light. Insulted their leader who issued a formal challenge via thrown glove to defend the honor of the Empire. I was a little disappointed they didn't just jump into a fight so we could see the rules, and instead convinced the other orcs to stay out of it while their champions fought. It was pretty interesting really. In retrospect, I now see that six orcs would have absolutely murdered them, so good job team!
The light turned out to be the ghost of a slain Raven Sister who was summoning aid to their ruined temple on account of the spiritual distress of her distant sister in the Vale of the Dead. She gave them some cryptic hints about returning song to the Vale... I told them the vale was some distance away, which is good and bad I'm seeing. They are blowing past other points of interest to reach the "main quest" I guess, even though all they're getting for it is a 7sp Raven holy symbol. Which they already got. Feel indebted I guess? They're seeing the world though!
