    Private Tales The Poor and Weary

    To say Varys' outlook on things had changed since his last trip to the wealthy city of Oban would be a bit of an understatement. Indeed, the long ride through the Savannah that precluded the Kingdom of Dalriada had given him a good deal of time to ruminate on the events that had taken place...

    Open Chronicles Sweet Home Oban

    Oban was a city of diversity. Where folks from all walks of life came to see their dreams become realized. Gale’s brother, Ricardo, had done just that. Become a griffin rider and made a bit of coin. Made mom and pop’s proud to boot. But Gale? Well, she’d always been the black sheep...

    Open Chronicles Hook or Crook

    The first stage of each and every successful robbery was deciding what you wanted to steal and why you wanted to steal it. Alexios had already confirmed both of these things on a personal level and on a 'party' level with his soon-to-be partner in crime. So with the goal in mind there was...

    Obann - Rellin Estate "Alright. I'm going to need a bottle of wine and a fine ass to put my-" Val cut himself off as his father stepped in front of him. The wold man was wearing what appeared to be an owl mask, likely thinking himself terribly clever for having donned the guise of an animal...

    Oban - Warehouse District Kekrizh "This is a wonderful idea." Kala said as she tapped the map which had been laid out on the small crate. Her fingers ran over the drawing there, poking at one of the exits which had been masterfully depicted. The map of course had been stolen from a local...

    ~ Oban ~ twenty-three years ago..~ The girl couldn't have been much younger than Wren was, perhaps four or five. But clothed in a grey and tattered dress, and her feet were bare and covered in whatever she'd trodden through in the rancid streets. She sat on the damp ground amongst the filth...
