https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/welcome-to-the-guild-sign-up-and-occ.33211/#post-870327 : The Sign-Thread Link In the far West of the Continent is the citadel Caer Wal Llywd, a stronghold for the Hunters Guild. It is here that our tale begins. Here, the Guild is taking in a new batch of fresh recruits eager to start on their first missions. These missions are in a way an initiation into the fold and are graded without the recruits knowledge. If a recruits show signs that are viewed as weakness, they are released from their contracts. The recruits are accompanied by a more experienced Hunter who will watch their progress thoroughly. If they see a recruit who shows a real level of leadership, they may allowed the recruit to lead the mission with the Elder Hunter as supervisor. Night has fallen in Caer Wal Llywd and the members present in the Caer are filing into the Mess Hall for dinner. The hall is large and spacious with enough room for the long four dinner tables and benches that a person can walk comfortably through without bumping into anyone. The wall of the Caer are built from stone and the voices of the crowd echo from its high ceiling. The talented chefs have prepared a hearty dinner for its members and reserved some drums from the local taverns of their special stock of ale. Bon Apetit. Áine had spent a few weeks on the road back from the Great East and she still felt like there was sand in places. If she seen another desert it would be far too soon for her, she thought. With her fair skin, a desert was not a place for her. She was happy to be home and hoped to have a nice vacation in her bed. It wasn't that she disliked sleeping out under the stars because she really didn't mind it, but a bed still beat a sleeping bag any day and she spent far too many nights in one this month. The trip to the Eastern Deserts hadn't gone as well as they had hoped. The library she was investigating had been swallowed by the sands and sadly became a breeding ground for the Shadow Scorpions that loved to hide under the sands waiting for prey to get close enough. They had to be one of the most difficult of Shadow Beast to kill. With their bodies covered in black scales that were tougher than most armor, destroying their hearts was nearly impossible. Those were the kind of Shadow Beasts that had to be killed from afar and with a lot of magic. Only problem was that they were almost immune to lightning magic with their eight spiky legs acting like lightning rods. She glassed the area before she was able to kill one. After taking forever to clear the buggers out, the tomes she was to collect from the sunken library had been damaged. She had to drop them off at a friend of hers at Lake Callahad College. He specialized in magica repair and hopefully, she would be getting word from him soon that she could come and pick them up. Not wanting to dwell on her great hopes that the tome would have the answers she was looking for, she followed the line to nab some grub. Her stomach rumbled when she began to smell rabbit stew and herbed bread.
