After my encounter with the foolish lizardman warrior, I decided against setting up camp in the ruins. Instead I continued walking, all through the night. And so it was, as the twin suns rose in the west, that my road to destiny was set before me. As morning came, I crossed the Ralthas River, leaving the Dakkar Marshlands behind me forever. I had just crossed to bridge, when three humans approached me. i drew my blades, and they lowered their weapons.
There were two males, and one emale. One of the males waa adroned in full armor, so I was unable to see his face. The female was actually quite attractive, for a human. The other male stepped forward.
"Hello there, good sir. I am Darrick of Tempered Steel Company. Thhese are my companions Leyla and Garrett."
"I have never heard of Tempered Steel," I remarked.
Darrick chuckled, "Never!? Tempered Steel is a mercenary troupt stationed just outside the walls of Delasia. We are looking for new recruits, and you look like a fellow who knows his way around the blade. We are currently under the employ of theDelasian royalk guard, mainly watching the roads into the city. Does this sound like something you would be interested in...uh?"
"Vicril. Vicril Wolfswift. And yes your offer does intruige me. Show me to your barracks, if you please."
Darrick smiled wider, "Excellent. Follow us good Vicril. There will of course be some questions and you will have to show us your skills with the blade, or vlades in your case, but I am positive all will work out grandly."
I did, and little did I know that their road would lead me to the Nightshade Orcs...
