Stronghold of education and learning, this fortress is in one of the coldest areas of Idalos and home to many knowledge seekers in a variety of disciplines. However, unknown to most, below the city are those who suffer for the sake of science. While all are welcome, not everyone will be treated as they expect

Ashan 718 Seasonal Quest
Little Lost Orphans
Image
Everything began in the Orphanage as normal. The children were roused and followed their daily routines. After washing, dressing and having breaking their fasts, they were ushered out to their schooling in the Viden Academy for the trial. Nothing appeared to be amiss. It wasn’t until after the school trial ended that things began to take an odd turn as their caretakers discovered that some of the children were missing.

They checked their beds and their belongings, discovering that only a few items were missing. Surely, they would come back. That was the reasoning but as bits turned to breaks, there were no sign of those youths who had gone missing. While the other children were taken care of, put quietly out of the way for the time being, closed in so that no other lambs could stray, the relevant authorities were contacted, and word began to spread through the city.

By the time, night had fallen, bills had been posted throughout Viden pleading for any information that might turn up the lost orphans and calling for volunteers to assemble in different places in the city in order to conduct a search. By morning, many search parties were ready to go, the promise of reward drawing some while the desire to do good drew others. Regardless of intent, it seemed that the orphans would be found. Of course, retrieving them was in the best interests of the children… wasn’t it?


Attention!


A number of orphans have been missing from the Mountainside Orphanage since an undetermined time on the 41st. All able-bodied citizens who can make the time to do so are asked to assemble at the entrance to the Viden Academy grounds by the 11th break (42nd Ashan) in order to be divided into search teams.

All those who are unable to volunteer in this way are asked to be on the lookout for unaccompanied children and pass along the information to the relevant authorities. Those who help in the search in any capacity will be justly rewarded.

This will work on a one-week post schedule. The thread will go up on the 16th April and I will post again one week later. There will still be an opportunity to sign-up in the interim. After that time, I will post once a week unless participants reply earlier.

PC Name: Linika
Blessings/Curses/Magic: Xypha (Yvithia-Favored)
Skills that might come in handy?: She has a broad variety, but sadly, neither "Investigation" nor "Research" are among them. This could change that.
What do you hope to get out of this?: Well, I have my eyes on a few Point Bank items. I have plenty of points, and this thread could serve as the IC means to end up with them. Other than that, just a good time...and xp, of course.
Anything off limits?: I'm an old-school gamer. I know the risks. :o
Do you think your PC would be sympathetic to the plight of the orphans?: Surprisingly yes. In a memory thread, Linika came to greatly care about a girl who'd started as a hostage, and ultimately died. She has wrestled with emotional rationales ever since.
Anything you want to add?: She keeps her Xypha mark hidden with cosmetics. But with Cosmetology of only 20, plenty of things could happen to expose it. She would consider any stranger that knew to be a...liability. :evil:

Blessings/Curses/Magic: no
Skills that might come in handy?: He has some skill with the shortsword and he's good at lying, although I'm not sure how handy the latter will really be.
What do you hope to get out of this?: Rewards (and maybe an orphan that I can teach to be a thief)!
Anything off limits?: Death, because I only just made this PC.
Do you think your PC would be sympathetic to the plight of the orphans?: Most likely yes.
Anything you want to add?: You told me that I could join the quest, so here I am. Devin is, as always, pretending to be something he isn't. At the moment he's a naturalist from Rynmere.
