Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For one reason or another each of you has found their way to the docks of Malien. You are bombarded with the sounds of merchants selling their wares from their stalls, or from the crews of ships trying to sell their onboard cargo. This dockside market does lack one thing that is very common with other such markets; it is by far the most organized market you’ve ever seen. The stalls are all in perfect rows with enough room beside each one for their proprietors to be able to come out with ease, and the walkway between the stalls are wide enough to allow two carts to head down side by side without any trouble. Somewhere on each stall is a piece of paper is displayed covered in writing and bearing several official looking stamps and seals. Occasionally a city guard will go up to a stall, inspect the paper and once satisfied head on their way.
The docks themselves are just as organized, with the majority of any heavy work being handled by the multitude of warforged seen working along the dock. Each of these warforged wears a black vest with red trim and a sigil of castle before a large golden disc on the back. The sigil is the symbol of Malien and though the golden disc is supposed to be the sun, many believe a golden coin is more fitting for the city.
Outside of one building is a large group of people, all of them either wearing armor and carrying weapons, or robes and carrying staves. A sign on the building bears a claims the building to be the "Adventurers Guild of Galemen", with a smaller sign beneath saying "Accepting new recruits."

Although those gathered outside are dressed like adventurers you notice that they are all rather young, and show no signs of ever having actually been in a fight. The ones in armor seem to be either uncomfortable in their armor, or don't have it put on properly, with most of the armor being far too pristine to have ever seen combat. You have a feeling that most if not all of these "adventures" are just the privileged youth of the city and have come to see the guild as a simple stylishtic fad.
