My Story

My name is Jericho and I was born in a small village in the southern region of the country. My father is the local wood worker and when I was young he made it clear that I was going to follow in his footsteps. I spent most of my adolescence resisting the idea of being like my father. He was a good man and wood working was certainly important but it was not for me. I longed for something more.

When I was nearly grown, my younger brother had reached a more mature age and he made it clear that he would be okay with being a carpenter. Now that my father had an heir, I was free to do as I wished and it was not long before I left that small village; kisses from my mother, a nod from my father.

I travelled to the only place that I could think of, The Capital. It’s by far the largest place in the country and many have gone there to seek their destiny. So it was there I went and it was there that I found one of the greatest places in the world, the library. It was in the capital library that I discovered books that spoke of an ancient organization.

The were known simply as The Assassins. According to the books, the Assassins were the last people to come from the Old Kingdom and they had mystical powers such as the ability to disappear or jump across buildings. The organization was said to house the largest collection of knowledge anywhere and be astute merchants as well. Because of this the Assassins held much influence in the land and a small city grew around their home.

Unfortunately, all of this occurred several centuries ago and that city is long gone. Indeed, the last trace of the Assassins was from over a hundred years ago and everyone is sure that the group is gone forever although what happened isn’t very clear.

Having read much about these Assassins, I knew what I wanted to do, I knew what I wanted to be. Right there in the Capital Library, I decided that I would become like the Assassins. But first, I would need to learn more about them and I had already exhausted the information the library had on the subject. My first step became clear: If I was to become like the Assassins, I would first have to locate the remnants of their home. This is my Quest.
