As you enter the loft, a feminine voice whispers in your head. "Ah. The fourth arrives. You'll go far, if you learn to trust your premonitions." Looking around for the source of the voice, you can see that footprints lead from the ladder to the overlook area of the loft, not 10 feet from where you stand.
As you enter the loft, a feminine voice whispers in your head. "Ah. A fifth arrives. Learn when to use your strength, and when to trust your associates."Looking around for the source of the voice, you can see that footprints lead from the ladder to the overlook area of the loft, not 10 feet from where you stand.
All: As Ember approaches the end of the trail of footprints, new prints begin to appear, moving sideways along the platform, and the voice you've been hearing in your head rings out loudly to all of you. "The test has not yet begun. It can not begin, until the last joins us."
Jadrith pats Iibbrr on the back as a respectful thank you "Looks like we have more to go, I shall look to return the favor." Jadrith walks forward to catch up to Ember and find out where these tracks plan to lead this random lot of questionable individuals.
As you enter the loft, a feminine voice rings inside your head. “And the last arrives. Overcome your timidity, little one, and you will go far.”
All: Afer Geex enters the loft, there is a short pause before a figure appears, filling the space where the footprints have ended. “We may now begin. Welcome, prospective initiates. I am one of the Four, the ruling council of the Ring, here to oversee your testing, should you be willing to participate. Our spies report that you are the best thieves, guards, and strong arms in the area, and I will validate these claims. If they are true, then you will be brought into the fold, and you will work for us. What say you?”
The human woman cocks her head at Iibbrr’s question, and answers elects to answer it first. “Why, they’re off running our operations. You’ll meet them all later, should you pass your trial. As for what we can offer you? Well, the Ring does run the best connected network in all of Vord. We can offer jobs, tips on independent scores, power, knowledge...” She shifts her gaze to you, Ember. “freedom.”
Gadrith thinks for a moment, his life has not been terribly hard and he makes an okay living... but, power and knowledge could change things in more ways than one. "Sure, why not. I thought today was going to be boring anyways. Just tell me what to do."
Ignoring Geex's hesitation, the woman begins again. "Staying in the Lost Elderwyrm Tavern, there is a man with two different colored eyes. One blue, one grey. This man, according to our spies, owns a few very valuable items. We are interested in one particular item, a ring that he wears on the middle finger of his right hand. Rumor has it, this man is leaving Athelta tomorrow afternoon, and the chances of him returning are very slim. Your test is simple. Bring me the ring."
The woman looks slightly insulted by your words and tone. "Why, what kind of guild would be be if we didn't tell our members what they need to know? The thought of that. Ugly business, indeed. The man himself appears to have no magical capabilities. However, as I said before, the is the owner of several valuable and wondrous items, as I said before. I wouldn't be surprised if one of these items turned out to be magical."
