“A Knight in Ink-Stained Armor”
Continuing Game 124

Travelers passing through the town of Oxbridge or its surrounding villages in northeastern Allondell can scarcely avoid spotting the notices pinned hastily to the wall at every inn and tavern, public meeting-house, and market square; some of the smaller hamlets have the signs papering the sides of the common well. They are all written in the same neat, copperplate hand, though some appear slightly smudged in haste. The notices are all identical in content, though:

Adventurers, warriors, trackers, those skilled in the magical or priestly arts I beseech your aid. My dearest love and betrothed, the Lady Bridget of Clayton, has been abducted by unknown brigands, and I must hasten to her rescue. However, I have never been able to claim any particular skill in the arts of martial combat, and as such, I seek your help. Anyone who can assist me in finding and freeing my beloved from her captors will be well rewarded; my financial resources somewhat exceed my skill at arms. If you will consent to join me on my quest, meet me at the Dancing Boar tavern in Oxbridge two days hence, on the 17th day of this month of September. You shall have both my coin and my undying gratitude.

- Frederick of Oxbridge, son of Lord Walther of Oxbridge
