And then we had a board! Thank you Twen!

Alrighty, so now that we have that, we're almost ready to start... Not much longer and you'll be able to apply for a position. Just not yet, cause we ain't ready yet LOL

What sort of characters is this story looking for? Mages? Woodsy types? Fighters? etc... :)

Whoever Irid chooses to hire  ;).  Pretty much anyone would be of use to her, although we will be spending more time in the countryside than in large towns.  However, we wouldn't want just woodsy people as that would be boring, she might hire a fighter or mage type for protection, or even (why not) a cook to make sure the party were well fed.  Or someone who knew something about druids, or someone who was used to travelling around the area and knew the roads well.  Someone who had a horse they could use for luggage? Find a reason why she would hire you and write a brilliant post showing it off!  I suppose if you weren't sure which character would be better, you could write an application post with each. However, only one would be accepted, otherwise it would be hard to prevent you from rping with yourself.

I think I have a few things in my favor for your story...

1. Merysa is a knight and warrior...so she can protect her allies.

2. She possesses a very strong and sturdy horse.

3. She lives by a strict code of conduct so you can be sure she will be loyal, faithful and brave in the face of death.

4. She has nothing to do at the moment...so a trip through the country would do her good.  ;)

I hope my application post wasn't too long... Huh?

I hope the intro post was ok...I didn't puppet any NPCs this time, as I did in my application.

I wondered though what the help wanted notice said specifically? It seemed kind of vague and I didn't know how exactly to integrate it into Merysa's post.

My intro post is also the next morning than my app post. Hope that's ok I changed days. If not, I can edit.

Actually, the message was oral. In medieval/fantasy worlds, very often when people wanted news, the inn-keeper was the one to talk to - since there were *very* few people who could read and write.

So, if someone wanted to hire adventurers, he/she would let the innkeeper know, and adventurers looking for a job would likewise ask the innkeeper if he heard about someone hiring (thoug this is mostly in the fantasy genre, it didn't actually go like that in the middle ages LOL ).

The message in this case, when someone asks it of the innkeeper, would be that
1)There's an elf hiring adventurers to help her find a person,
2)The elf is waiting for the interested adventurers about a stral north of New Santhala
3)She has golden eyes (and black hair for the more perceptive innkeepers ;))

I hope that helps. I will allow people to puppet the innkeepers (just this once! ;)) so that they can hear about the message and meet Irid in the same post. Also, about the time: no problem. The application post was more or less a 'prequel', and since it has to be morning, according to my time thread, it's logical to suppose that the night has passed since that application post :)

Would it be ok if I had Maue coming from Elsreth to New Santhala and she found Irid that way, instead of from New Santhala with news that an elf is hiring outside the city gates?

I went ahead and changed my post and puppeted the innkeeper long enough for her to inform Merysa of Irid's request for help.  ;)
