Anyone can clothe themselves in piecemeal armour, take up some ancient heirloom blade, and call themselves an adventurer. But it takes more than that to be a hero.
For that, you need a proper education.
In times gone by, or so the tavern tales say, you could hardly move in the Gateway without running into a warrior of legend or an archmage of near-godly powers. Whether true or not, the Greylands Academy of Adventuring & Heroism exists to bring those halcyon days to life by offering training to anyone with the potential.
Now one of the city’s great landmarks, the institution is famed far and wide for providing an excellent adventuring education. If someone is hiring caravan guards or dungeon crawlers, an Academy alumnus will always be at the front of the queue.
It’s pretty simple, really. If you want to make a living from adventure, the best place to start your storied career is with a training course at the Academy.
Success—and an increased life expectancy—will be yours!
Or that’s the theory. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take into account the Academy’s less-than-savoury activities… or the less-than-honourable enemies they’ve made.
There are several dozen students of varying ability levels within the walls of the Academy fortress at this time of year. It would be a shame if an unknown enemy attacked in force, intent on sowing chaos and destruction, their ultimate goals and motives hidden behind a veil of blood and the stench of undeath.
Yes, a terrible shame, indeed…
