So, with this in mind, I sat in the Dead Orc Tavern with a stack of parchment, quills and ink. Thoughtfully I chewed the top of my quill, then started writing.
I read over the crossed out and rewritten draft several times, reworking a phrase here and there until I was satisfied with the final product, then I meticulously copied the words several times onto different sheets of parchment, pausing only to massage the cramps out of my aching hand, and sharpen my quills.
After they were dry, I rolled them up with a flourish and went to the common board to tack up my first one before heading north to Mithril Hall.
Attention Merchants and Adventurers!
Opportunities abound in the rebuilding of the city formerly known as Bloodstone. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, the Lady of what will become Ashstone seeks people who are interested in establishing trade relations, shops and services in the city.
For those who are not of a mind to sit in a shop all day, it is possible to sponsor a shop, providing aid in the clearing and rebuilding of the city as a representative of the shop you wish to sponsor. Anyone wishing an establishment in the new city must be willing to adhere to the following conditions:
1) Aid must be offered freely in rebuilding the city. There are many tasks which require skilled labor. Without service, requests will not even be considered.
2) Venture forth to Bloodstone Camp and speak with the Lady or Klovus.
3) While service will ensure consideration, platinum will purchase property, so funds will be required.
The Lady also seeks those of adventurous spirit and special skills to aid. Simply seek her out and offer your services, negotiation may be possible.
