MISSION NAME: the land of mist and snow
CLIENT: a librarian, unnamed
CHARACTERS: Orion Prima
MISSION BRIEFING: a mysterious has requested a mage to look into an ancient shrine that was rumoured to be in the far corner of alakitasia. inside is supposedly a tome that recounts the lives of beings known only to the world as gods. most likely full of traps, the mage has to be agile, and quick-witted. failure can result in death.
Orion was the wrong person for this job. Funnily enough, he was also the right person for this job. The mission briefing stated that the mage be someone agile and quick-witted. Orion was neither of those. He was bulky, and very slow for the most part save for in battle. When it comes to puzzles and the like, Orion was not your man. In fact, he was the last person you would be taking. This was a dangerous mission indeed.
"The Land of Mist and Snow. I wonder why they call it that?" Orion grumbled as he made his trek towards the supposed shrine. The Land of Mist and Snow was a place where no villages could ever exist. No monster truly inhabited the place because of its desolation. No plant life could ever survive the harsh conditions. It was a sad place. A horribly depressing place.
Orion looked up. It was a flat expanse now, covered in all snow, while a strong blizzard blew westward. It was a dangerous place for even the most seasoned mages, and Orion was already feeling the stress. There was no shelter in sight, and his rations will be stretched thin if he did not find the place sooner rather than later. He would not fail though, the word was not in his vocabulary.
