Ghar awoke from his slumber one morning to see a mysterious scroll lying near his hut. He hadn't recalled sending any letters to his friends back in Silverhold, and closer inspection proved the scroll was no magical construct. Wary of any danger, Ghar unfurled the scroll.
He was quite confused at what he read inside. Whoever he was, this "Gamemaster" seemed to have been watching him. Still, the reward for success in his contest was quite compelling, but it had been a while since he had been in combat...
He contemplated for a while. Clearly, he thought, this letter was sent for a reason. He would do what he must to discover that reason. Searching through his bag of supplies, Ghar retrieved his ink and quill, signing his name on the parchment. He placed it back where it had appeared, and in a bright flash, it was gone.
Ghar puts his mask to his face. Time to see what this game was all about.
