It was a night like any other at the Rusty Hook Tavern. A local band was playing some cheerful tunes that everyone was too drunk to properly appreciate. A couple of gullible out of town guests were gambling away their life savings in a game of Hazard. And almost every night, an enigmatic figure would make some kind of dramatic entrance into the tavern, looking to hire some cheap mercenaries for an adventure.
This night, the mysterious adventurer was young Eredhar, and boy did he fit the profile. Each and every scar on his face seemed to tell a different story. He had a glass eye that glimmered in the room as he looked around for fresh blood. He slowly walked towards the barmaid, gazing at the wanted poster of a Fizzy f**y, a notorious pirate killer. He turned around, towards the middle of the tavern and cleared his voice with a loud cough.
“I am Eredhar, admiral of the Royal Fleet of Kingdom of Eoland. I was tasked to gather the best sailors at this outpost, that are willing to embark on a transcendental journey that will forever change the life of everyone involved. We are to tear apart the fabric of our very own reality and blur the line between myth and reality.” He spoke with a firm voice, catching the attention of the sailors inside the tavern.
“The King is more than gracious and offers each one of his subjects, each one of you, enough gold to live two lifetimes!” a deep voice echoed throughout the establishment.
“As Captain Anon said, you’ll be rewarded royally for your service” Eredhar added, walking towards the door.
“Where do we sign up, Sir?” one of the men asked.
“We have contracts back at the pier” Chaser said, looking at the man.
Thunders started roaring as both the admiral and captain set foot outside the establishment. Eredhar looked up to the sky, black clouds were gathering upon the outpost. One of the newly recruited crew members, approached the captain with a slight shiver in his voice, as the sky opened, and rain started pouring down.
“Sir, are you sure it’s the right weather to set sail?” he asked as he shivered from the loud thunders.
“Have no worries, the ships’ masts and hulls can withstand even that harshest weathers on the sea!” Anon grinned as they reached a shabby wooden building, at the end of the pier. At the far end, two mesmerizing ships were anchored.
“Each recruit will cost you two gold pieces, Eredhar; that’s the price for hiring men from my outpost” a woman addressed Eredhar, tapping her nails on the table.
“A deal more than fair, Ms. Kat” he nodded, taking a bag of coins and handing it to her, turning towards the group.
“Now rest, for tomorrow we shall set sail!” he shouted, his eyes measuring the new recruits.
