"Ah, ye want to be an adventurer do ye lad? Aye, I'm sure ye've heard tales of magnificent riches and glory to be had. Have ye heard the tales of sleeping in the mud, days of riding, vicious monsters, road bandits, and gaping painful wounds. Of course, ye haven't heard those! If everyone heard tell of those stories there'd be a hell of a lot less adventurers."
From: Words of a wise old adventurer

I met a young apprentice one year by the name of Danilo Thann at a party. He was very drunk and entertaining a gaggle of young ladies using his meager skills of magic. Unfortunately, the dandy cast one of his spells shortly after the gods were cast down from the heavens and magic was made unpredictable. Now, my head resembles that of a fiend from the lowest pit of Hell, complete with horns and razor sharp teeth.

Magic: a dangerous and unpredictable force. Called Art by those who serve it. Called Power by there who try to bend it to their will.
