Argent Fae: Part I: Newcomers
Being a Fae wasn't always easy. Hell it still isn't. My name is Jaxial. And I am a Investigative reporter for the Argent Fae. We don't know what to believe. We got this guy, Hylas, real shmuck he is, telling us about this upcoming storm of changes. Pfft. I don't care. But everyone else does. I'm going to get to the bottom of this.
I passed by the Grove about six o'clock AM server time. Nothing much going on there, just some green adventurers trying to make a name. And it's a good thing to, those Treants just pop up all the time, it's nice to have landscapers who think they are doing a finer deed.
I pass by the fortress and see Hylas sipping on his morning tea reading the newest issue of Insufferable Living. Which by the way is an excellent source on whats new in the Fortune Shore Black Market, if you know where to look. I see him every morning , so I wave. He lifted his cup in response and nodded his head. I swear he keeps that treant in spite of his neighbors down in the village.
Some adventurers rode by on some flaming horses, probably looking for water, but I know the deal, if you don't mess with them, they are most likely not going to mess with you. I have been wrong on occasion and sent some adventurers to there literal grave. But after a while it just disappears. I felt the ground rumble and realized they were being followed by some guy on a two headed turtle. What the Hell?
A year ago you wouldn't have seen such a thing. Next thing you know, these "Guardians" just showed up saying "The Vigil guides us". They claimed there was a dragon behind it all, this "Regulos" fellow. He'd been gone a long time though. I started thinking these people were crazy, you know drank some sort of nectar out there that made people loopy.
I stopped by Neil's News Stand for our new issue of The Argent Fae. I asked how his day was going. He told me it was going great, his son, Scott, just got accepted over at Quicksilver, a very prestigious school for mages. I wrote a report on the hack they were recieving from some very pesky goblins. It ended quickly when the Guardians showed up.
