    Mysteries of the Arcane Ruin

    Post by 8-Bit Wren on Fri Jul 20, 2012 3:24 am

    The year is 1620 in the world of Rylant, where myth and magic reign supreme. For as long as people can remember, it's two huge continents with the Elves, humans, Dwarfs...all of the races living on the south Triarria with little idea on what lays on the Northern Continent.

    Some say dragons. Others say an unspeakable evil waiting to move forth and conquer the world and a fair few see it as a possible paradise as the only consistent factor between these rumors is that none have returned alive.

    Until now. A weary traveler returning from the Northern Continent has taken refuge in the town of Yendel. Rumors soon spread across the world of the one who knew the way into what mysteries laid in wait to the North. Incredible riches, powerful magical artifacts, things the world has never seen drew many to this traveler, yet none of them had never returned.

    In any case, all of you arrive at the town of Yendel after hearing the rumor, each of you here for your own reasons. The question is...what will you do first?

    Bradman walks into town and walks into the bar. After all, what better place to hear the rumors?

    The bar in question would be the Journeyman's Lodgings, a rather new building made from a mix of wood and stone. On the outside, it's two floors high and sits in the middle of the main street leading to the north of town, with the armory and blacksmith's a little further.

    To the east of town would be the general district and marketplace, which is quiet this early in the morning, but activity will soon pick up as many people are beginning to set up their stalls and goods.

    To the west is the prison and guardsman house, where powerful warriors patrol the city to keep an eye out for trouble and would-be-criminals.
    ---
    Inside the ground floor of the Journeyman's Lodgings are several square tables, with very few people sitting around and idly talking and drinking while some are still being dragged upstairs from passing out the night before.

    Out of the corner of Bradman's eye, he'd notice a middle-aged man sitting at a table in the corner. His expression is a silent, if weary one that shows up in his pale blue eyes and lightly scarred face. Hair colored black like midnight and dressed in simplistic villagers clothes, he sits next to a figure drapped in black robes who...looks like he's staring down at the table.

    Braadman gets a table close to the pair and sits down. He idly twirls his cricket bat and tries to listen in.

    The weary-lookin man looks up at Bradman, raising an eyebrow while his companion still sits there, not moving at all.

    "...So yer here about the rumors too, are ye? I guess I was young and foolish once."

    Glancing from behind the counter, the barman looks like a rather muscular specimen of a man, built like a warrior, yet somehow fitting into the typical attire of a white shirt and black tuxedo vest, shrugging at Aurora.

    "Can I help you, lass? You seem a bit out of place here."

    Bradman looks up at the man and smirks. "You can say that" he responds.

    The world-weary man sighs and shrugs, rubbing his chin for a moment and thinking.

    "Well, it'd certainly be a shame if ye threw it away, don't yer think? You can't honestly be expecting to make the journey on yer own, lad. You hardly look prepared."

    A small, hearty laugh comes from the bartender.

    "Another one! Happy Hour doesn't start until the evening, good sir. And you certainly don't look like the sort who could hold his liquor."

    The weary man sighs.

    "Aye, but I ain't sending a child to his end. Especially an ill-prepared one. And I doubt ye can persuade me otherwise, lad."

    [Bradman, make a Diplomacy check to try and persuade him if you wish.]

    At the mention of dragons, the barman laughs heartily.

    "Dragons, you say? Why, we haven't seen them for at least several centuries. Sure, the man over there may be tellin' the truth or spinning tall tales, but why would you be seeking them out?"

    Blinking at Kris's comment, he laughs.

    "Well, how about a drink and we'll see for ourselves, eh?"

    He pours a mug of ale into a glass and puts it down in front of Kris.

    Kris takes the mug, and starts drinking, at a somewhat slow pace.

    "Pffft, why? My reasons're none of your business, sir."

    "...so, you said the guy over there is the one who everybody's talking about?"

    The world-weary man simply shakes his head.

    "Yer think I haven't had people use that line before? Considerin' yer hardly have the gear to make it to Zanon, let alone the Northern Continent, I doubt it. Either gear up more or get some allies to go with ye. A kid on his own is just fodder for what lurks up there."

    The cloaked figure moves a little. And by move, his hooded head moves forward and lightly hits the table as it just rests there.

    Giving another hearty laugh, the bartender nods.

    "Well, you're certainly a fiery lass. I suppose you're right. And, yes, that would be the man you are after."

    [Kris, make a Fortitude save. d20 roll.]

    The bartender raises an eyebrow at Kris who seems to be barely holding his liquor and shrugs.

    "Well, you certainly proved me wrong. Be thankful this is just the ordinary stuff, eh?" he gives a hearty laugh and pats Kris on the back.

    As for the cloaked figure...it's a bit hard to tell what he/she looks like as it covers most of their body...although the faint sound of breathing and sleeping can be heard while his companion nods at Aurora.

    "Aye, lass. If yer here about the rumors of the North, I can tell yer that they're certainly true."
