    The Ancient Warrior's Tale
    Prologue


    My great uncle was an old man at the time of my birth. Now that I am grown to adulthood he is older still. He says that he stopped counting the winters of his life when their number reached one hundred.

    Some say my uncle is too stubborn to leave this world. Others say he is cursed with such longevity. But to me each day with him is a blessing.

    Although age has stolen his strength, dimmed his sight and turned his hair to silver, my uncle's wits remain razor sharp. The countless adventures he has experienced are fresh in his memory. His faded blue eyes sparkle with excitement when he speaks of a past filled with glory and danger.

    My great uncle's house contains mementoes of a full and prosperous life. Those items dearest to him are kept in his private chambers. Few have seen these treasures. But I have had the privilege to examine each one closely. I have tried to piece together the puzzle of their meaning through the stories I have come to love.

    A wooden bow carved with ancient runic symbols, a well worn lute, a horse's bridle, a magic sword and a large scale from a white wyrm hang upon the walls. Placed with care atop the polished wood of my uncle's desk there rests a pair of worn archer gloves, a faded red ribbon, a blue feathered hat, a magic silver ring and a dented helmet of pure gold.

    My earliest childhood memories are of the tales my great uncle told as the family gathered before the hearth. His words painted vivid scenes in my mind of a time long past. Their images capture my young heart and to this day he is my one true hero.

    So it is because of this life long affection for my aged knight that I put pen to parchment and try to breathe life into the ancient warrior's tale.

    Dear Reader,
    Due to a "glitch" in this forum much of the punctuation in The Traveler and The Bard, such as quotation marks and apostrophes, have been changed into question marks. Unfortunately I am unable to edit most of my stories because they were posted last year. If reading becomes to difficult please go to the "Fan Fiction" page of UO stratics for the stories in their original form.

    I got part of it fixed for ya...and will see about any possible estimate on when the glitch will be fixed.

    Fixing the one left an 'edited by *zigzag*' tag on it, and I want to see if there may be an alternative to that /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I'll post again as soon as I have any info!
