I must apologize, I am terribly sorry, I have been tied up with real life circunstances and haven't been checking this thread out/writing as I should, as the stress from said circunstances has me burnt out on any creativity for writing. Thus, I will need to take a break for at least 3 weeks while I sort things out, then I can return, if you would still have me. Please, consider my character to be somewhere in the background, running small tasks or what not in the meantime.
Ars Argento

Ars wasn't sure how to feel while being thanked by the Dark Priestess. It was the first time (excluding the previous day's weird request) that he got thanked for work he himself had done. It wasn't the kind of work he expected, but, that probably did count as his first adventure. "No, I must thank you, for hiring us, miss Riñas." Looking at the small coin purse and the flier, he was feeling some sort of pride. "Yes, I shall make sure everyone sees this." There wasn't anymore he wished to discuss with the Dark Priestess, so he watched her return to her church before going on his way.

Once more, Ars awoke late the next morning. This time, he felt he shouldn't be worried about it too much, that patrol went late into the night, and then taking the road back in the dark, maybe wasn't his brighest idea. He maybe should have lodged in Boreal Port instead, but it was too late to worry about that then. Maybe he should take the day off, he wondered getting out of bed and getting dressed. Rummaging through his things, he found... Yesterday's coin purse... And Miss Riñas' flier. "Oh, no." The boy had completely forgotten about it. Now, how would one go about making this event known to his guildmates? Ars headed to the main hall.

Most people seemed to already have set off. Ars wouldn't be able to make an announcement. Rather, was that even appropriate. He ddin't know if he would have the courage to. He fidgeted in place for a minute, wondering what to do as he looked at the rapidly emptying hall, he didn't want to break his promise to the Dark Priestess. The boy then slapped himself in the head, realizing that there was a better idea that wouldn't require him catching attention anyway. The billboard. Ars went to look for Bart. "Mister Barker!" Ars had the flier in hand and a childish relieved smile. "Is it a problem if I pin this on the billboard? It is, from yesterday's client... Huh, Miss Riñas invited us all over. I promised to let everyone know..."

Ars was surprised to see the two men simply break way and run, and felt immensely relieved that he didn't need to resort to violence. Still, that felt too easy for him. And why were they fighting here anyway...? This place was suposed to be abandoned after all... The boy briefly thought about running after either of them, but decided against it. It was probably better to call the service done and report to miss Riñas.

__________________________________________________________________

"Good evening, miss Riñas." Ars replied the greeting upon meeting with the dark priest. "No major complications. The farm had a rabbit invasion, but they have been driven away, at least for now. On the abandoned town area..." He paused for a second, wondering how best to express his thoughts. "I ran into two men fighting each other but they immediately ran away once they saw me." The boy decided to omit his feelings that something was not quite right with the way they fled so promptly. It was probably just the eeriness of the abandoned houses that had gotten to him, surely.

Ars couldn't help but feel guilty upon seeing the rabbits fleeing in terror. Maybe his idea was too harsh after all? They were just rabbits after all... He cut the flow of magic to the fireball, and it disappeared without a trace. "A request is a request... Still, I would not wish 'Terror of Rabbits' as an adventurer moniker..." The boy muttered to himself, while taking a last look around the farm. Maybe he should after all volunteer for something more exciting next time.

____________________________________________________________________________________

After his rather mundane earlier task, Ars wasn't initially expecting to find anything noteworthy on his patrol of the abandoned side of town. He had, however, never roamed these streets of Boreal Port so late into the night. This eerie atmosphere did make his imagination run wild. Maybe it was okay to hope? Would he stumble upon a ghost of a victim of Agharst's pillaging? Maybe find a secret, forgotten passageway from the times of the Varjo occupation? If he found such a thing, he would be so happy.

The boy was considering whether or not to call the job done when he was drawn to the sound of a fight. Ars saw two men fighting, for some reason. He did not really want to have anything to do with that, but stopping fights probably counted under "Keeping the peace". Still, he wondered how capable he would be at stopping two people fighting. The boy briefly entertained the idea of doing the same thing he did with the rabbits, but decided against risking hurting someone. Rather, it was probably better to just talk this out. From a somewhat safe distance, Ars shouted at the two. "Cease this unlawful behavior immediately!" He raised his staff, ready to cast a spell while trying to look about as intimidating as he could. Maybe they would mistake him for a powerful magician before he actually needed to use magic on them.

Been slightly busy in real life and haven't gotten around to sitting down in front of my PC and writing. I'll try to get my little post done tomorrow morning.
Ars Argento

Ars was uneasy with the amount of questions being thrown his way by the priestess, but did his best to politely answer them. "The guild seems to be going well, but we don't have a name yet, no." He paused to think for a second. So, people just called them "that new guild"? By centaur, she probably meant the one from yesterday night. "I have seen the centaur, but we have not been introduced. There are a number of dangerous requests, but we are free to choose our assignments." He decided to refrain from saying he himself was just on his second assignment and both had been safe requests so far.

The way to the farm took a bit longer than he expected. "Take a look around and drive off any intruders, understood. Until we meet again." He immediately went to take a look around after Riñas left.

The field had a rabbit invasion. "Worst possible scenario..." Ars muttered to himself, looking at the rabbits damaging the crops. He had no experience with dealing with pests. He was, after all, a sheltered rich boy, even if it pained him to admit it. First, to try and drive them away somehow. All animals feared fire, so maybe he could scare them away with a spell.

Ars raised his staff, holding it with both hands in front of him, focusing his magical powers on it. That was a simple spell, but he would need to focus on it nonetheless, fire in a farm would be dangerous. It didn't take a long until a small, fist sized blue fireball was dancing around atop his staff. "Hey, rabbits, leave these crops or I'll burn you." He shouted, more as a way to psych himself up than anything, before running into the places with the biggest concentration of rabbits and waving his staff with the fireball at them. He would, of course, not launch that fireball from his staff, nor was he planning on actually touching anything with it, but hopefully the fire would scare the animals away.

Ars mostly listened and silently followed Riñas as she explained the request. So, check a local farm for pests and patrol the abandoned town areas. Somehow, he had never really been there, though he knew of where it was. "Ah, no, no questions. I, I will then check the farm first and patrol the town afterwards... Then report anything unusual to you...?" Even though he was speaking following his normal routine, it was not hard to see he was nervous as he stepped forth towards the farm. That would be officially his first solo request.

Once more, Ars took the road that connected his home town of Boreal Port to the Guild. He had never taken it before, never ventured off the town limits, but the road was already starting to feel familiar. Maybe today would bring about an actual adventure, even if this one too was in his hometown.

Reaching the town, it didn't take long to find the church where he believed he would meet this Miss Chavez. He was immediatelly greeted by a woman seemed to be in the middle of sweeping the place. "Ah, y-yes, I'm Ars. I'm Lucian's... I mean, Master Lucian has taught me..." He was caught off guard by her apparently knowing who he was, but managed to quickly enough switch back to business as usual mode. "Would you happen to be Miss Riñas Chavez? I'm with the Guild to fullfill a request..."

Ars looked at the request board. Apparently the armor man/woman (thing?) was also here to take a request. A new member? Or perhaps an older one? Either way, they seemed confident, cause they took the most dangerous looking quest. "This one, maybe..." Ars muttered nearly inaudibly in the meantime, before making his decision and speaking up. "Is it fine if I take the Keeping the Peace request then? I believe no one else is assigned to it." That one looked simple enough, something even a newbie like him should be able to do.

@PaulHaynek
Neil's status is officially already second-in-command then?

Legitimate question, is there just a single request board that is small enough to be carried or is there a large one on the wall or something similar? I assume there is only the one, which is the one Ars has seen and knows of, meaning he has to speak to Neil first to get a request started.
