Miyako is a long-time gamer, having started with tabletop games before Fragment was released. They were heavily active on the game forums, and wrote several guides and compilations of lore. Elder Tale, with its new frontiers and deep lore, caught Miyako's attention quickly. They can be found almost anywhere there is something new to see or learn, frequently immersed in a book, or conversation with a Lander, or delving into an ancient ruin "just to see what's there". Never the best combatant, but talented with languages and puzzles, Miyako is more interested in small-party investigation than the big dungeon raids. And in singing odd American songs in whatever pub seems most interesting, much to the confusion of the audience.

"Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it's a frakking stupid reason. Sometimes it's too complex. Sometimes it's just someone saying "What happens if I press this button?". But there is always a reason. And there's always a reason for the reason." - Miyako Blacklily

As a major hub of trade ships regularly sail to and from the Ninetails Dominion. Frequently adventurers can be found aboard these ships for a variety of reasons. Diplomatic efforts, trade merchants, hired guards from the Hunters Guild, or simply to travel and see what Yamato has to offer. Recently a giant hourglass has been seen counting down in Dun Loireag, the capital of the Ninetails Dominion, and this has led to many adventurers travelling there to research it or prepare for what is rumored to be a major event of some kind.

((OOC: This is a casual social scene for those that want to RP travelling to the Ninetails Dominion.))

Whoops.

The ruin gets busted open and a bunch of skeletons, goblins, and probably goblin skeletons spill forth on THURSDAY THE 13TH at 7:30pm EST! Be there, or be... I dunno, safely ensconced in the tavern with a warm cup of cider, maybe? I'm not your boss.

Duty Session 373: Karluin Reclamation - Town 2021 October 20th

Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.
