A robed, hunched man makes his way across Arcas, pinning up a plain looking advertisement across a variety of public noticeboards, aiming to reach a variety of major settlements and holds. One such advert happens to catch your eye, signed by the obscure Eventide Hourglass:
Seeking Stalwart Adventurers!
“In need of able-bodied people—of any race, species, or gender—that are of sound spirit and mind. You and a small group of fellow enlistees will be tasked to lay ambush to a dangerous entity roaming the lands of Arcas, defeat said being by whatever means necessary, and claim victory over its domain.
You will be provided a standardized uniform and armor plating for the duration of this task. A prepayment of 50 Minas will be given prior to completion for any auxiliary expenses, such as blade sharpening, weapon sourcing, necessary camping supplies, and so forth. You will be expected to provide for your own weaponry, in whatever form you feel most comfortable, as well as to bring rations and equipment to last several days in mountainous terrain.
Upon successful, confirmed completion of the destruction of the entity, a further 450 Minas will be paid per individual directly involved in bringing about it’s end. Any additional rewards and loot are permitted to be split between fellow enlistees.
Further details about the being, precautions to take, and advised equipment will be given upon acceptance into the hunting party.
If you are interested in this offer, please pin a note below it stating a way in which you may be contacted. A representative will reach you within an Elven day. Established mercenary groups need not apply; individuals or partners only.”
Meanwhile, in the far distance of the north, the sky rumbles and lashes the frigid mountainscape with dry and unnatural lightning. There was, indeed, the slow approach of something tremendous in the north, if only far colder and wicked and mad than the fiery hordes that had fallen from the sky, which cast the shadow of a sole man; the shadow of Mordskov.
