Radburne War Quest – Saturday night, 5th August 2017

Storm clouds roll in from the horizon as lighting strikes and shatters all in its path. Winds howl with ferocity, uprooting and tossing aside everything in its path. Pillars of fire and smoke rise from the ground as though the earth itself has erupted from the core, Ragnarok is upon us !
But not all is lost, the gods of old have appeared in the forests of Radburne, will they be enough to stop the impending Apocalypse ?

And so the Wizard Hildolfr has once again sent forth a call for aid in these dark times, any adventurer willing to lend a hand will most certainly see reward and fame !

Meet Wizard Hildolfr in the tavern on Saturday evening after the feast……………..

And on its back a rider – a bow, a crown;
His name – Conquest.

Is that a red horse comes towards me?

And on its back a rider carries a Great Sword;
His name – War.

M’Lord look yonder, tell me what you see?
Is that a Black horse comes towards me?

And on it’s back a rider – a balance in hand;
His name – Famine.
