RotR Chapter Two: The Skinsaw Murders
Jack inhaled the freshly tilled earth beneath his boots. The country air was clear and rejuvenating. Jack had retired to his cottage after the festivities, opening his purse strings to a local work crew. In no time at all, the cottage had begun to look brilliant. A bunkhouse was raised, and Jack's farmhands had begun to plow furrows almost immediately. The knight looked around himself at everything that had begun to take shape: a home, land, and a family. He turned at the sound of hoofbeats, and saw Jimmy galloping toward him on horseback. His "Squire" hauled on the reins, skidding to a stop near his master. "Jack! A guardsman came to the house! Says the Sheriff needs to see you right away. He left this." The teen leaned over in the saddle, dropping something into Jack's hand. The bravo turned it over in his gloved palm. It was a metal disk, embossed with the image of a lantern. It trailed a short length of light blue ribbon. A heavy stick pin jutted from the back. Jack recognized the symbol worn by the Sandpoint Guard. Jimmy grinned. "Apparently you're being summoned...and deputized, master."
OOC: still more to come. Hang tight, everybody.
