LoM Ronin Rank Challenge: Strange Meetings . My entry for the Ronin Rank! .
After the Battle of Red Sand, and after being given the town, I saw to it that I became acquainted with the town and it's people. But during my inspection, Blain, my personal guard, wanted to stop for a drink at an old tavern called Wolf's Fang. I allowed it, but decided to look around outside for a bit.
I continued down the road as Blaine entered the tavern.
But as I walked, I ran into a mysterious fellow.
???: Pssst! Psssssssstttt!!! Over here, Jaldor of Red Sand!
I turned toward the sound and found myself looking at an Rainosian soldier.
Me: What do you want soldier? And shouldn't you be at the beach on lookout with the other soldiers? I ordered it, after all.
???: My name is Finnegan, and I'm no soldier. I am an Outlaw like you! I come with news for you.
Me: News? For me? Why do you carry news for me?
Finnegan: You are no longer any ordinary Outlaw, Jaldor. You are now the leader of a good sized town, with soldiers under your command. Not to mention to now have Rainos' trust, correct? This makes you a serious threat to your enemies! And even more of a man who can help keep Outlaws cooperative.
Me: Cooperative? If you need them cooperative, why don't you do it?
Finnegan: Jaldor, your name and heroics have been whispered all the way back to Bodus. But more importantly, your name has been whispered into the ears of Mythron scum. You are a feared leader! Do not let this chance go to waste! Keep the Outlaws cooperative! And keep the Outlaw cause alive!
Me: Very well. You can count on me. But be warned, I work for no one. Do not think you can control me.
Finnegan: Of course.
Suddenly, Blaine appeared out of the tavern, and I turned to meet him.
Blaine: Jaldor, I think the bar maiden is into me. She poured a little more into my tankard than anyone else at the drinking game!
I then turned back to say farewell to the Outlaw, but he was already gone.
Blaine: Is something wrong, my lord?
Me: ...No. Let's get going. We have work to do.
And so with that, Blaine and I turned, and continued away from the tavern. But the Outlaw was still on my mind...
Just some extra build shots.
Thanks for looking! And please remember to rate and comment!
