On the outskirts of Vizima was a village known as Barholst, a small hamlet of short comings and overbearing people. Barholst used to be considered a trading must for merchants, until the mysterious disappearance of Elder John Tilk, a wealthy trader known for his swift tongue in trade and in... other places. His wife Charlotte Tilk, was a bountiful woman with many needs that were able to be suited by John. When John disappeared Charlotte killed herself after the search was given up for him. John was a kind man with many ambitions, yet he was always off somewhere else. Some assumed that John disappeared by not making a deal, or that he was mugged. His wife never thought so, but she is not alive now to be able to help the cause to find him. Soon an mercenary would come through just in time to be able to solve this mystery, except it wasn't just a mercenary. It was Geralt of Rivia, the While Wolf.... Geralt awoke on the side of the rode with mud on his shirt, and a knife by his head. This wasn't the worst conditions he had ever woken up to, but it wasn't as good as waking up with a woman by his side. The rode was coarse and was not paved, the air smelled of wheat and grain along with sweat and blood. Geralt wasn't in the backwash of Vizima anymore, he was somewhere calm and quiet. With a crack of his neck, he stood up and wiped the mud from his shirt and dug his feet into the ground. Geralt looked down and saw that he had shorts on but his boots were missing. He deduced that some prick either mugged him or he had amnesia. One way or another he was angry. Geralt picked the knife up from the ground and slipped it into one of his pant loops, which was small enough to hold the handle. After looking around he noticed a sign that said "to Barholst." Geralt got a move on and walked toward the hamlet. Ten or so minutes later he arrived at a alright looking village with some people going in and out of it. (Your character has lived here for most of her life, or her whole life. There are four sects to the city itself. The market sect, the housing sect, the farming sect, and the royal sect (which is more like officials.) Since I want this to be interactive you get to make the city based on how your character is. If it is a lively city, go for it. If the city you depict is slowly declining, I don't care. Everything about this town is made up, the things you dont control is the main story line, Foltest's army and other characters who are based within the storyline. If there are people you know within Barholst then talk to them as if you know them. Otherwise have fun!
