This Game For Beginners is OPEN TO TWO NEW PLAYERS following retirals. They must be a paladin and warrior. I’ll take the first two beginners who apply, so please don’t double up. Do read the story so far (there isn’t much as the game is very early on!) and take a look at the other active characters and think about how to contrast their personalities. Everything else you need to know is in the game info. Your character will first appear at the Green Dragon Tavern, so you need a reason to be there, which we can work out together. Thanks - and welcome!
The Head Librarian pulled her glasses off to pinch the bridge of her nose.
“So what we know so far is that a few months ago a mage performed a ritual at Boneyard Pass, out in the Grey Mountain foothills, that had some… unfortunate side-effects.
“Not to put too fine a point on it, we’ve been having… dragon returns.”
The librarian clearly considered this to be an interruption of her flow, her brow furrowing just a little. “No. Well, that is to say, not exactly. They’re… repeats. A ghostly dragon appears and plays out the precise attacks of yesteryear. The direction of flight, the damage, all identical.”
She sighed, putting her glasses back on and rising from her desk, walking out from behind it and over to the bookshelves that lined her office.
“If only they were but apparitions. Unfortunately, the fire, the destruction, is all too real. The best that can be said is that those who remember what happened before can help prevent folk from being hurt.”
The librarian slipped her hands into the deep pockets of her robes, turning to survey the party.
“So. You’ll be wondering what you’ve been employed to do. Not to put too fine a point on it, I need you to go and speak to an expert at one of the attack sites, and figure out how to fix this.
“And then I want you to fix it.”
