Early Life

Richaard was born in Selanthia on the twenty-fourth day of Lormesta in the year 5090. As soon as he was old enough, he would help his parents on their farm with producing good crop and tending the livestock in order to make a living and feed the population.

In the year 5110 at the age of 20, Richaard left his home and set out on an adventure. Leaving the farm, he had just the clothes he was wearing and a tawny rolton hide pack. His clothing consisted of an alligator tooth pendant strung from a leather cord given to him by his father, a stoutly constructed thick brown leather jerkin, an open-front slate grey tunic with rolled-up sleeves, some thick brown leather strapped arm greaves, a wide brown leather belt with a square silver buckle, a felt-lined narrow gem bag consisting of many different gems to trade for food or silvers, a pair of side-laced brown leather breeches, and some side-laced brown leather boots.

On the western coast of Selanthia lies the city of Tamzyrr. As Richaard was passing through, a wizened wizard from the Hall of Mages had stopped him. Richaard was asked why he was there and replied that he was passing through to adventure through Elanith. The wizard asked Richaard if he had a weapon or knew magic because there will be plenty of danger ahead. Richaard responded that he did not have either. The wizard gave Richaard a rustic silver belt sheath etched with golden arcane symbols that contained a sword inside. The wizard explained that the sword is magical. As Richaard removes the white ora bastard sword from the sheath, it bursted into a pure white flame. The wizard continued to tell Richaard that this was an Iasha sword and that it attunes with the Arkati that the holder follows. The wizard was pleased when he heard Richaard and his family were devout followers of Koar.

Richaard was then given a tooled leather-bound folio by the wizard. He opened the folio to find pages upon pages of what looked like spells of magic. The wizened wizard explained to Richaard that with much practice, he could also learn to be a magic user. The wizard continued that the sword and folio would work hand in hand with enough training. Richaard attached the sheath to his belt and put the folio in his pack.

After Richaard exchanged more words with the wizard, he bid farewell and left the city to start his new adventure and go wherever the roads ahead might lead him.
