“The harvest was meager this year; we barely had enough gold when we were done selling our crops and pay our rent and taxes. My son Jes, went to work for Owen and his wife Sara who keep a large flock of sheep so we could make ends meet. Jes never came home and I am worried about him.
I went to town and asked about Jes and no one would tell me anything except for Nana and Brother Ray. I heard from Nana that Jes went by her shop to get some bread and that Owen’s sheep had gotten out into woods. Jes had Owen’s sword in case he ran into orcs and that’s the last anyone saw of him; there’s no telling what he ran into out in those woods.
Now what you have to understand about Owen is that his father fought in the war against Keeonean Minax’s general. Owen tries to lord it over us that his father was a war hero and that he has a legendary sword called Tyranny made long ago by Father Alexander and the monks of Yew Abbey to protect the Town. I heard rumors from Vincent that the orcs are getting out of hand and the orc war parties are rampaging through the woods.
Owen and Sheriff Brax are both rich and we can’t get a straight answer or justice from them; they ran me off and told me to stop asking questions. I am a poor man and I can’t pay you anything but I need your help to find Jes. That’s why I need the Royal Britannian Guards to help me, good Queen Dawn always stood for what is right.”
