Gobby opened his eyes from a dream that seemed unending disillusioned that he had been asleep from his travels for only a short while.
“It seems years had passed as I have slumbered.” He spoke aloud, all too aware of the absurdity of his thoughts…
“Somehow this world seems bigger. How can 2 years pass within a 5 hour slumber?” His spoken thoughts echoed amongst the trees. “Could this dream have been an omen? Of a future yet to come?” Gobby struggled to reason with his thoughts, a poor Nature Goblin with an affinity for Fire tried to make sense of a chaotic dream, one full of horsemen and the ancient High King Goblin Named Irongut. An ominous wind sent a chill down Gobby’s spine, some how he knew the horrors in these dreams would come to pass, and if Irongut made his return, wether he would give aid to Zaejis’s cause would be left unclear. Gobby knew he would need to seek aid from someone with a much better view of the future, but didn’t know where this person made his home.
As Gobby tried to recall from his visions a means to quell the oncoming calamity, he spied a piece of parchment that had appeared to dance as it was pushed along by a breeze.
“Hoguns seeks warriors to resist coming war.” Gobby read from the flyer then he remembered stories of a Guild of legend, what started as a group of misfits trying to turn the tide of a conflict long resolved has grown to a lead resistance warriors hellbent on leaving a mark on the world. In but a moment fragments of the dream came flooded into him. “I’m to aid Hoguns at the forefront of the coming war…” He knew he wasn’t quite ready to contribute so much to a struggle he was unprepared for. “…I remember… Legionnaires, Paladins, I can Grow there, and be ready when the time comes.” Gobby pondered for a moment knowing his task at hand was not yet complete. “I’ll do what needs to be done, and find strong fighters along the way to lend their aid to the cause. The plan is still to head to Adana to seek aid and guidance to quell Zaejin’s struggle with the Spire…” He resolved out loud. “I’ll save Zaejin, then seek out Hoguns to prepare for a greater War soon to come, and by then, I’ll have friends with me, and together, we’ll move mountains.”
And with that declaration Gobby gathered his gear and set out deeper into the forest of Pan’s Vale. He would accomplish his goals, and bring as many as he could to prepare for the war. Only time will tell who he would find along the way… perhaps just maybe… it’ll be YOU
