A procession of heavily armored knights made their way through the streets of Ansteorra, the slow galloping of their ostrix mounts accompanying the shifts of plated armor and metal weapons. Indeed, all appeared to be relatively high-ranking officers, but one figure stood out from the rest, despite his central position in the mounted escort.

Your arrival in Austia is expected shortly.


The procession arrived shortly thereafter at the army's scarhawk stables, whereupon the elf encountered a timeless companion that had carried him above the skies of many a battle. Rubbing his beak soothingly, the scarhawk tilted its head with familiarity. Fluffy, snowy white feathers decorated its glorious form.

"Until we are done in Austia, Nim'rama, I fear you will be my only friend."

Later that night, a group of three scarhawk-mounted figures raced into the horizon. On the grassy slopes leading up to the city of Ansteorra, three lillies fell from high up in the air, one at a time...

At the very edge of the Merchant's Quarter, just before the city molds into Tumbledown Gate and the slums beyond, Averon Cartography displays a rather meager scribbled sign in the shop window.
