arrive or you can participate in one or more of the individual
challenges by yourself.

 

The adventure begins…..

“Whatever possessed the King to send along non-combatants
on this mission?” he growled. Frustrated, his mailed fist
struck the trunk of the tree in a shower of the peculiar bark of
this southern tree. Hearing a muffled sound, he spotted a furtive
movement out of the corner of his eye. One of the Littles in the
caravan had been watching him and scampered off at his display of
temper. He sighed. The story would be all over camp that evening of
how His Lordship had been punching trees, again.

Thinking back, he thought his mission was going to be simple.
The King had pulled him aside after Court one evening, “I
have a delicate mission and I need someone I can trust.” At
first he had been thrilled to have a quest; things had been
entirely too quiet lately and each tournament seemed just like the
other. He was glad for the strong arms and fighting spirits of the
fighters that had been assigned to him. Surely their prowess with
sword, both heavy and rapier, would be useful in these back lands!
But the inclusion of artisans, bards, cooks, and children were a
puzzle to him. It did not make him feel any easier when the King
hadn’t been able to explain either, beyond that the Queen had
a vision, that they would be critical to the success of this
mission.

After many years of sad neglect, this portion of the Kingdom had
failed to send in tithes and communication had been dismal or
lacking entirely. The King had taken a personal interest in seeing
that this southernmost branch of the Kingdom of An Tir be brought
back into the fold. No longer would this lack of respect be
tolerated and someone would have to answer to the King! His quest
was going to be challenging enough, traveling through the
admittedly beautiful but rugged countryside, encountering who-knew-
what barriers, finding those responsible, and bringing them back to
the King. 

Myrtle Holt, so the tales said, had been charged with a
mysterious task, after successfully repulsing a particularly fierce
attack from the Kingdom to the South. Raiders had broached the
borders and gained access to an enormous cave upon the lands of
Myrtle Holt and what transpired thereafter was a bit of a mystery
to anyone but their Majesties. When pressed, the King remained
tight-lipped. He revealed that what transpired was a matter for
Kings and involved a great deal of secrecy but all knowledge had
been lost after being passed from King to King. He was charged,
too, with finding out the real story and determine if this Shire
still held to the old charge of defending those southernmost lands.
Yes, this was going to be a difficult task and their Majesties
trusted him to bring this to a successful conclusion.

He sighed. Putting the Little out of his mind, he started back
to camp, signaling to the sentries as he did so to pack up and
return as well. They’d need some extra time for the
non-fighters to get their belongings together and get back on the
trail the scouts had found yesterday. As he rounded the large tree
that marked the edge of their campsite, he was surprised to find
that everyone had already packed up and looked at him expectantly
as he entered the clearing. Pleasantly gratified, he gave the
signal to mount up and move out. “Perhaps,” he thought
to himself, “this won’t be so bad after all.”
