“Lords and Ladies, Gentlefolk and Commons, I bid you welcome to the Flaming Flagon, the finest public house in the city. Well, maybe the finest in this neighborhood (now that the Mangy Rooster has burnt down). At any rate, we are proud to be of service to you today.”
“You look like you’re a capable sort. Not afraid of a little hard work, getting a little dirty? I might have something of a special offer for you, if you’re interested. Have a seat at that table in the far corner, and I’ll be along in just a moment to explain. I promise you it’ll be worth your while.”
“What? Oh no, those people there are also going to be offered the same opportunity - I expect that several intrepid souls working together would be much more effective that any one person - however skilled and capable - would be alone.”
The Flaming Flagon is located in one of the rougher neighborhoods in New Empyria, a walled city on the frontiers of the kingdom. The proprietor, Rufus, has been asking about for individuals who would be willing to do some work for him outside the inn (and possibly outside the city).
You have arrived to check into his offer, and possibly escape the menial, boring, or otherwise unappealing life you’ve led up to this point. You may not have experience in adventuring, but you do have some unique skills and a desire for something more than your life has provided you until now.
