As you can see, this was something new: the Darshaks were after our silk stores...which I (and many others) was previously unaware existed.

Hrothgrim's Quest for 6,000 Coins


Hrothgrim sent the following declaration to TMN:


My name is Hrothgrim, and I'm a fairly new exile. To have a little bit of fun, I've created a quest of sorts to complete, as something different I suppose. I've set off on a journey away from the protection of town and will not return until I have earned 6,000 coins, and can swing my axe 20 times. I'm still a first circle fighter, and can almost swing about 5 times, and I'm starting my journey with 262 coins (some of which Exin and Malachym donated while I was trying to subtract my current amount from my goal of 6,000).

I'm doing this for me, but thought it might also be fun to throw a little celebration should I succeed, and keep people up to date as to how it's going.

Why 20 swings? Because an axe is meant to be swung.
Why 6,000 coins? Because library fees are expensive! And because I need 6 chains and two sunstones!
-Don't ask why! I do! I need em!

The after party:

Upon returning to town, I intend pass my first circle test; buy a couple of kegs of something; hopefully get hold of a baker so there can be some food AND CELEBRATE!
All who are around are free to join in the festivities.

Two last things:

Anything of interest found will be put up for auction and the proceeds going to Stora.

And finally, I have started a scroll to keep a record of this ongoing adventure!
