((Time to spring life back into this forum! If some of you might remember the topic that was once here on this forum - The Summit. The setting? A few months after what transpired in the end of the PbP (I hope it gets finished one day too!)))
The Hume cleared his throat. "Thank you all for arriving on such short notice, I'm sure you are all wondering why you have been chosen to attend this summit on such short notice." He bowed his head. "My name is Allistair. I come from lands to the far west - the continent of Ulbuka. You may have heard of the region and the state of war that the land is currently in. I am a representative of the Dresden Free Mercenaries, and I came here to grant a chance to those interested for a safe, easy passage to a land where fortune awaits."
Several adventurers' eyes gleamed upon the mention of fortune.
"As you may or may not know, there are two countries at war fighting over supremacy of the continent. Our policy is simple - we go fight for the country that interests us the most. For glory, riches, what have you, you will be rewarded greatly for any effort you make."
By now, more adventurers looked interested. Some that sought to turn back were attracted to listen further.
"Imagine, my friends. Valour, rewarded with glory, and gold as far as the eye can see." Allistair grinned. "Imagine the future you would have. In the lands to the far west, there are high bidders for the most able-bodied fighters and mages to lend them strength."
By now, plenty of adventurers were murmuring, whispering, gold glinting in their eyes.
A Tarutaru, dressed in a white robe and cloak, hung onto his staff. He wasn't very interested in the rewards as much as his interest in something else on the island. A rumour, but it may be something worth looking into...
