Current Description:

Just slightly to the east, you notice an unusual spider web - gleaming blackly within the surrounding structure of tree branches and leaves. Upon it sits a small, unmoving arachnid of brilliant green - the color of lush foliage in the bloom of health. Then the spider disappears for an instant, only to reappear in a blink... a blink?.... You realize that the spider was no spider at all, but an eye.... but.. how.. what..?
You shake your head in confusion, and look closer. A soft chuckle, and the tree branches seem to move. Stepping out of his perfect concealment, a willowy elf smiles quietly and looks at you with curiosity plain in his gaze. You instantly realize that it is his unique garb - patterned after the shape and shadow of leaves - and the perfect bark-like shade and texture of his braided hair - that helped craft such a convincing illusion... that, and perhaps a bit of sorcery, as well, for the sparkle of magic dances upon his fingertips. Pulling his gaze from yours, he riffles through some large books, removing a stunning variety of objects lovely and rare.
'Beautiful and deadly, like so much in this Realm.' His eyes flash to yours, assessing you silently to see if you fit that description as well. Warily, he nods, then pauses, as if hearing a voice you cannot. A glimmer surrounds him momentarily, and he bows his head to accept the Blessing. An almost shy smile flits across his lips, and you hear him whisper, 'My thanks, Lady.' He glances back at you, and murmurs, 'I'm still not used to giving an Oath to a god... or Goddess... but all things change in time, and our true Fate awaits us all.'

Character History:

Greetings Friend.

My name is Trakker Longbow. I am transcribing this brief history of myself in the hope that, when my time in this realm has ended, I will live on in your memories and the memories of others I have known and loved.

I know nothing of my heritage or lineage. I was found abandoned in an elfweave basket deep within the tangled roots of Loth-Llorien. When I was a small lad, famine and disease struck the forest of my homeland. I was forced to steal scraps of bread and bits of spoiled vegetables and meat in order to keep the hand of starvation from my family. Once prosperity returned to the forest, I vowed never to steal from another living being.

A few years later a traveling circus stopped on the ouskirts of our village. I was enthralled by the magician and begged that he teach me the tricks of his trade. I was a bright and dillagent student, quickly mastering all that he would teach.


  1. I vow here this day to donate any reasonable amount of gold coins to any that make such a request of donation.
  2. I vow here this day to never raise my voice in a shout or yell.
  3. I vow here this day to seek out and offer aid to any of my kindred below the level of 15 whenever I have sufficient time to do so'.
