My name is Jaldor, the Outlaw. And unlike many Outlaws, I didn't run away from the "mighty" Empire of Blue and Black. Rather, I was born an Outlaw. My parents were both Outlaws from long ago, but that's another story. Anyway, yes, I am a natural born Outlaw. Or at least, that's what they call us nowadays. Which is way better and more appropriate sounding than "traitor" and "beggar". Nowadays, like many other Outlaws, I am on the run. But not from stealing valuables or killing the wrong Imperial. Rather, I carry a powerful relic given to me by an Imprisoned wizard named Warlick. I happened to come across him in an Inn on Imperial soil. He seemed frightened and he offered me the book in earnest. He told me it was to be taken to his brother in Outlaw land. He also said if it fell into Rainos or Imperial hands, they would use it's power to destroy the other. The last thing he told me was his brother's name, Windlock, and then he scurried out of the Inn, followed by Imperials down the street, and then taken to who knows where.
At the present, I am making my way to Outlaw land to find his brother. Why I agreed, I'll never know. But the truth is, I felt like I needed to help the old man. Anyway, I'm stuck right in the middle of Imperial soil, probably the most dangerous place to be carrying an ancient powerful book.
About this creation
I found my self a nice little Inn called the Dragon's Head. I figured it seemed quiet enough to lay low for the night. So I paid the Inn Keeper, and scuttled off the my room.
I put the book down on the table on the far side of the room, far away from doors and windows. I didn't want anyone being able to get close to it.
I then went to the fire to warm my hands. Nights in on Imperial land were cold! Good thing the fire was already taking effect.
Suddenly, I heard footsteps coming quite quickly to my door. I turned to the door sword drawn. And what do you know, two Imperials step right into my humble dwellings.
Caped Imperial: We've been searching for you for a long time, Outlaw. But let's cut to the chase: Give us the book the wizard gave you, and we'll let you go!
When I openly refused with a few harsh words about Imperials, the armed one lunged at me and swung down upon me. I easily blocked it. And pushed him back.
Then, before the Imperial could land another blow, I thrust my sword into his throat, stunning both him and his Imperial friend.
Caped Imperial: Filthy Outlaw scum! You'll pay for that with your blood!
Then he leaped at me, sword raised.
Then he brought his sword down upon me... which was a mistake on his part.
I then locked swords with the Imperial, then I swung his sword to the left with all my might and strength.
Then I stabbed him in the throat as well.
Me: What is so important about this book anyway? Was it really worth your lives?
I then lowered my sword and slowed my breathing to normal.
I then knew it was time to leave. It wouldn't be long before the Inn Keeper came in to check up on things. So, I grabbed the book, and escaped through a window next to the fireplace.
Me: Looks like a night in the cold after all.
Then I took off for the woods.
