Prologue - With the White Council, consisting of the member guilds CWS, GIL, KSS, and TSR, authorizing a faction stone, the WCB, to join the True Britannians in order to claim the throne and install a fair and just ruler, I decide it is best to fully understand the activities and census of this land for when we are successful in our goals. I therefore set out on a journey to observe certain key areas of this land to accomplish this task. First stop is to visit the Shire Tavern, the Golden Unicorn to pick up a keg of ale from our barkeep Woody. I find that packing it in glacial snow keeps it the coldest. That stuff is cold!! I also pick up some snacks.....ribs....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ribs. Last I stop by the Shire library to pick up a book for the trip, as I feel it will be quite a lonely one. I decide to head out to compassion gate, a popular spot due to the rat archers to the south. I set up my booth, crack open a few ales, and play the waiting game. Its quiet out there. Just a lot of sitting and drinking on my part. I wonder what Woody put in my ale, as I could swear I saw a reflection of myself! After quite a few ales, mother nature calls. After a lot of waiting, and drinking, I complete my log book with no entries. Not a single soul passes through. Tis obvious that compassion gate was not as populated as I once thought. I pack up all my things, not to leave any litter in this picturesque location between the mountains. Next time perhaps I'll check the word on the street as to the popular hunting grounds before starting out on my next journey. ________________________________________________________________________________________ More action packed stories coming in the future.
