The Emergence

Rickard's Departure

It had only been a few days since he met this adventuring “team”, but Rickard had made up his mind: he must go. He felt a slight pang of guilt since he was responsible for getting the group involved with the quest for the stones, but it quickly subsided as Arduin showed such fervorous interest in the subject. He quietly backed up while Arduin discussed stones and reward with Dr. Gancho.

As he reached the entrance of the tent, he gently placed the breastplate they found in the woods on the ground. It made a soft “cling”, but nobody seemed to pay any attention as the conversation between Arduin and Gancho began to get interesting. However, Kamesh noticed both his slow departure and the sound, but he didn’t say anything.

Rickard stepped aside once outside the tent. He breathed a deep sigh of relief and began walking toward the fairground exit. His mind began to wander again…

Whatever I need to find, it’s certainly not with these folk. They appear to be just as confused, if not more so, than me! But I do wish them luck in whatever they stumble upon… it could certainly not end well with that little one’s mouth and baldy’s lack of one. And what’s up with the fire? Someone is bound to get hurt with that hormonal mess around.

Something deep within me is being called, and I must find it. Maybe it has something to do with my dreams… a beast of light. Yes, I must find this beast of light. Perhaps I can find myself in the process.

Lost again in thought, Rickard “rode” south in search of something to fill the dark void in his soul…
