March 26th 1257
The following day, the trainer took me to a training ground and taught me how to fight. He taught me the best way to hold a sword, where to strike, how to defend...
When he thought I was ready, he introduced me to another fighter, and we practiced. I only managed to hit him once before he knocked me off.
My first practice didn't went very well...
I spent the rest of the day trainig and in the afternoon I got hit pretty hard and fainted. I woke up pretty later and realised the trainer has took me to his house... again. I should try to stop getting knocked of soon, otherwise I'll get bad relation with the trainer. When he realised I has waken up, he gave me some soup.. again and then showed me my father's sword and told it was a very good sword and I should keep it with me... always.
My father sword... Isn't it beautiful?
In the morning, we came back to the training ground and started to train again. Around midday, our training was interrupted: There were deserters attacking us. I immediately grabbed my sword, but the trainer ordered me to run away, that he will hold them so that I could escape.
The deserters interrupted my training...
I run aimlessly until I reached a village called Saren. When I got inside, I got surprised: The villagers where HAPPY. My father ALWAYS told me that the villagers don't do anything without complaining, that they were lazy and very, very unhappy. Apparently, that wasn't true... at least not here, because when I asked them why where them happy they answered: "Why shouldn't we?". I tried to recruit some of them to my party but none wanted, they seem to be happy where they were. I also asked the village elder if there was anything I could do for them and he told me they were fine.
The village was prosperous
I leaved the village and started to travel in the "Rhodok" territory, my travels led me to another village, this one called Sarimish. While Saren seemed prosperous and everybody welcomed my, Sarimish was poor and I was looked suspiciously, like they were calculating the risks of robbing me or getting looted by me. While I walked among the streets, I found a man who wished to join me in my travels and together we went talking with the elder. The elder told me that bandits had burned their crops and asked me to bring four packs of grain and I agreed of course. After that, another five men volunteered to join my warband.
The elder asked me for some grain.
After that, I went to a Castle called Grunwalder and walked among it streets, just to find out that there was nothing for me to do in a castle.
I immediately ride toward a nearby village called Serindiar, where only one man volunteered for my party, but after I offered the Elder to help him restoring his herd which has been destroyed by looters, another six joined me.
My help offer made me some new recruits.
After that, I traveled north, toward another Kingdom called Swadia and reached a village called Nomar. I entered it willing to steal some cattle there to give to my friend at Serindiar, but when I was going to steal it, A Rhodok Count called Etrosq raided the village. After watching the battle, I was thankful that he has come, because the villagers from the village were more than me and my men could slain. I headed toward Count Etrosq and greeted him, and asked him some job. He asked me to deliver a message to count Raichs. I didn't knew count Raichs but I accepted it anyway.
I planned stealling that herd.
After that I spotted a battle between a Swadian Lord and a Rhodok Count and headed toward them but I didn't joined the fight, because the Count didn't knew I would help him and he might think I'm his enemy. Instead, I atacked a Swadian caravan that was nearby, but I misjudged my forces and ended up prisoner of the caravan, but not for to long, Count Reland, from the Rhodok kingdom atacked the caravan and when the fight started, I fled. When I saw the Reland was going to win, I rushed to his side and together we defeated the Caravan.
My recruits were no match for the caravan guards.
After the battle, I asked Count Reland for a job and he offered me to be a mercenary for the Rhodok Kingdom because he has promised to the king to hire some mercenaries. I gladly accepted and asked for another job and he asked me to hunt down a fugitive named Raurque Silkybeard, who was at a village named Epeshe.
He offered me to hunt down the fugitive.
I headed for the nearest village called Jamiche and there I recruited a Villager and asked for the directions of Epeshe and they told me it was far west and north from there.
