A romanticized idea of journeying the land.
Conquering dungeons and trials.
Going at it alone or with friends and party, it doesn't matter. It is a very appealing idea that draws young men and women all over the continent to it's calling.
The is where our story begins.
With a feeble ignorant young boy at a small outer rim town of Sagiri of the Forensia Empire.
The origin of Tetu Volonte. The wannabe adventurer that dream of a better life than a farmer life like his father and his father before him.
The town of Sagiri was in an uproar as the town people gathered at the town center near the gate. Tinor Drake, a young man, and son of the town blacksmith was being sent off as he about to depart to the city where he plans to join the national armed forces. Tinor was the 10th person to leave the town this year, like most of the young in the town, they're off to bigger and greater thing.
Tetu watched bitterly as the town send Tinor off from his family small patch of farm. His eyes were green with envy as another one of his friend leave as he was stuck here. Tetu also dreams of leaving Sagiri and make a name for himself.
"And that makes ten" he mumbled to himself. He was now the last one of his generation. How he wishes he could leave like the other but his father forbid such ideas. Tetu father wishes for him to remain here and take over the farm when the time comes.
Tetu wasn't the brightest kid nor the strongest or fastest, but he dreamed of becoming an adventurer and hero since he was a child. He used to love it when adventurers stopped by the town to and from quests and missions. They would always share their stories and tales that would stay with him till this day.
"I have to leave this place too. I won't fall behind. I can be much more than a farmer" He thought to himself.
Tetu father stepped out from the house where he saw Tetu daydreaming again. Tetu father followed Tetu eyes to where he was looking so intensely.
"Tetu, It's late. Hurry up with your duty and come inside" He ordered before turning his back and headed in.
Tetu gave his father an annoyed look and before turning his attention back to the town gate. Tinor was almost out of sight as he makes his way over the horizon.
"I will leave tonight..."
