Seeing a problem as a challenge is a bad attitude to take to the problem

The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude to the problem.

Reading tales of King Arthur, it appears that none of his knights had any honour.


Hello, person. If you want to know about me, know this: I spend far too much time on the internet. If you wanted an overview, stop reading now. If you want to go into some detail, I also enjoy researching upon ancient history (Alexander the Great is a particular favourite) and know to much random stuff that will never be useful to anyone. E.g. The first city west of china was founded in 5000BC in Sumer (now Mesopotamia) and was called Eridu. So if you go away with anything, go away with that, because it makes you seem interesting if you know it. Probably.

I also enjoy reading, Brandon Sanderson is one of my favourite authors, and playing games from the Total War series. I am also, you might like to know, attempting to re-create the magic of a novel myself, and you can read it here:
It's based on the concept of superheroes in the late medieval era (it is not set in this world) and contains intrigue, action, a badass blonde princess, you know, epic things.

I am also pretty sure that I am a nice person. Now you can leave. If you want to stay, that's fine, but there's really not much else to do here, so...

Name: Shadow
P.S. I also adopted a Pokémon because WTF not.

@lavulman Sorry, I've had a lot of stuff going on recently. I can still post, but it won't be as often. If I hold stuff up, just skip me. I don't mind if people control what my guy does if I miss anything.
Do you want me to post something, or are you good?

Sorry for some of the wonky stuff, I haven't done this much before.
Seeing that no reply had been immediately forthcoming, the foreign travellers enquiry caught his ear. He turned and flashed her a smile and a wink, "Jaimie Cartarsy, monster and demon hunter," he gave a slight bow, "Pleased to meet you, miss..." He wondered if she had a foreign name to match her look, or if she'd just chosen a more local one. He hoped she hadn't, he quite liked the way a lot of foreign names tended to roll of the tongue, those of his own country always seemed a bit blunt. She did look foreign, though, and he'd certainly not seen many people who looked like her before. Her eyes in particular, a deep shade of green, were very interesting. He'd have to ask her about where she came from at some point, you can't travel everywhere, and hearing about it was the next best thing.

If she replies, Jaimie would smile again and say, "I like that name, far more...imaginative, than some others around here. Sounds good to." He repeats the name a few more times to himself, smiling. "Of the lovely lady in green, I can tell you little except that she has given me money and something to kill, so she is, to all intents and purposes, the greatest lady in this vicinity at the moment." He looked up at the armour clad Veronica who stood behind the girl, "She's cool to. If only because I fear what she'll do if I say otherwise."
No, you can't win in this situation.
So... he's a typical elf then? Does that mean if our elf went up against him that it would be an even fight for a change?

You can find out if you want.
As the author of this adventure, I find it highly insulting that you would dare insinuate plot armour. He's just really lucky until I say so. And he's better than you. :)
@Jbcool You can certainly try and kill him if you really want to, but jokes on you for what happens next.
@Jbcool@Maxwell Don't you dare shank my elf :) I'm very attached to him and his ten page backstory.
@bobert778 Thanks, wasn't sure whether to jump in the middle of another conversation.
Well, they looked like they knew what they were doing, and at least one of them was older than him. Old people knew stuff, and it was always more than you thought they knew. It had cost him only one month but a small fortune in gold before he'd learned that lesson. Seemed she'd been expecting a hunter, since she guessed correctly what he was, not that there were a great variety of professions to chose from. She was right again though, the hunt waits for no man. Or monster, but mainly man. "I'm Jaime," He grinned, "Jaime Cartarsy, or something along those lines. Been a while since I've bothered to use it." He turned to greet Veronica as well, but she had already gone on to meet someone else. Rude. The newcomer, however, was interesting. She certainly wasn't from around here, not based on the way she was dressed, and she carried a really big stick. As in, really big. Like, if you it someone with it, it might actually hurt, big. He turned back to Sarena.
"Sooooo," He began, "What exactly are we looking for? I mean who, not what. Sorry, most of the time I'm going for monsters, about ten, twenty times my size. Those are the small ones." Looking at her face, he saw that, yeah- no, she wasn't going to be impressed by that. "But seriously, who are we after?"
