Greyhawk: Return to the Classic
Hart of the Burning Torch
The Hart of the Burning Torch adventuring guild is looking for new members to begin a life of sword or scroll. We invite you to test your wit, strength, and knowledge to see the lands through new eyes, to behold sites and learn information that most shall never have the chance of imagining. Be warned the path we ask you to walk is not an easy one, and while the rewards are great the responsibility is greater. If you can not live up to the high level of training and vigor that we require of in our members then you shall be expelled in short order, or dead almost as quick. Don’t take this warning lightly the Flanaess is a dangerous land and outside the guild hall many unkown threats lurk. If you feel up to this challenge report to the requrtment tent and sign up to become a member of the Hart of the Burning Torch and a member of Duke Doenairian’s mercenary company out of the County of Urnst. You will begin training immeadiatly as you march with the other potential members of the company to Starkwall in the Duke’s lands situated on the boarder of Urnst and the Shield Lands. Training shall begin the 15th of Patchwall the common year of 596. If you make the journey and complete your training you shall have started on a new path in your life one that shall be full of awe and wonder, one that will have been walked successfully by few from the start of time to the end of days, but one that might bring you great power and reward.
