(OOC: Located in a forest near Amaranthine. Some music!:
Adeline walked in the through the forest clutching her staff: Dreamcatcher. As she walked she listened to the birds singing and observed a deer playing with her young. Adeline smiled at the lush green trees in where the birds are building their nest in preparation for mating and laying their eggs she enjoyed the feeling of the grass tickling her bare feet. It felt good to be free from the Circle Adeline could never experience the tranquility of the forest when she was back at Kaldan Hold.
Still while she would rather bask in the forest's beauty, Adeline unfortunately had things to do. She ran out of money and supplies yesterday and she needed to get a job, Amaranthine was near and is a great place to look for work. Still while the Mage-Templar war is over and mages were granted their freedom, not everyone accepted the mages. There were still extremist fringes who would harass or kill mages and villages who would reject them. Adeline was glad that the mages were granted their freedom, but the hard work was just beginning.
Adeline heard the crashing of water and began to go to the source of it. She felt thirsty and Amaranthine is about 30 minutes away, all of a sudden she heard a noise a foot stepping on a stick. Gripping Dreamcatcher Adeline cautiously moved to the source of the noise, It was there that she found Templars: About 4 of them presumably walking towards the water source as well. They were sporting the typical Templar armor, but it looked rusted as though they have not been maintained for weeks. Adeline heart was racing, she has been dodging Templars for years and she could tell that these are NOT the Templars sanctioned by the Chantry.
They were Rogue Templars. Adeline dashed towards the nearest tree, trying to remain hidden but listening on to their conversation.
"How long till the next city?" One of the Templars complained.
"In about half an hour" the other replied. "Can't wait to get the brothel. Burning witches can be hard work!"
"And hangin mages as well!" The third laughed "Blood mages squeal like little girls when the hang!"
"We're doin the Chantries work here!" the fourth nodded "Divine Victoria has taken a soft stance on mages especially those who practice Blood Magic!"
"Agreed." The first one said "We goin to join the Templar rebellion at Orlais afterwards, but we're goin to need money, there's a job at Amaranthine that requires people to deal with Pirates!"
A job? Well that's one city Adeline will have to avoid.
"Yeah Orlais! Didn't the rogue Templar deal with a Templar whose be hangin with the Dalish knife ears?"
"So I have heard."
The second Templar looked nervous, his dark face was sweaty. "About the Pirates, I heard they had Giant Squid with em a Krakken!"
"Sounds like bullshit stories to me, but they pay very well if we can deal them!"
A Giant Squid? Adeline raised an eyebrow, sounds like a job for a mage not Templars.
All of a sudden the first Templar froze in place as though he saw something horrible. "Hey boys, looks we got ourselves a mage! Let's go and "talk" to her!"
The other Templars were confused at first, but eventually saw what he saw and laughed.
A mage is in trouble! Adeline began running towards their direction in an effort to protect her.
