How it began: The New Age of Calradia

So I enjoy a game called Mount and Blade: Warband…

It was in a tavern in Uxkhal, which then belonged to the now former kingdom of Swadia that I met him. I didn’t take much notice of him when he entered, but when he initiated conversation with me, he proved to be more curious and intelligent than I mistook him for. I told him of my dilemma, of how I am an accomplished doctor cast out by my jealous and less skilled superiors at the university of my training and have had to roam the land as a doctor for hire. My tale only grew his interest and he offered me work as the doctor of his warband. I didn’t know what to think at the time. In that age of constant war much as it is now, independent bands of warriors followed the professions of either mercenaries or bandits, neither pleasant, but with little other employment I accepted. He proved to be the captain of mercenaries and bounty hunters, though at the time many of them were little more than peasants with cheap weapons. Many had wounds as well, so I had little in the way of spare time from the beginning. But we grew from and we proved to be a most chivalrous band with a chivalrous captain to match. We soon attracted other skilled members: Alayen, Baheshtur, Bunduk, Deshavi, Firentis, Klethi, and Ymira. This was the beginning of our tale and his, the captain, the lord, the king, the emperor…
