Fabel wants to become a famous bard, but his rough past complicates so many things. Should he follow his dream, or is it time to finally wake up?
Fabel has experienced quite a lot, especially for a 16 year old. When he was still a little kid, a group of bandits overran his village and burned it to the ground. Not only were his parents killed right in front of him, but also one of the attackers brutally chopped off his legs.
Luckily, a traveling priest who rented a room in the nearby inn was able to step in and rescue both of them. Why he chose to adopt the boy remains a mystery... Fabel knows he should be grateful, but he never overcame his bitterness. He keeps thinking that his "real" life was taken away from him. Stolen and shattered.
Forced to use both arms to move around, his career options are rather limited. He takes care of the household chores and helps the villagers of Windy Meadow, especially farmers, with their mundane tasks, but with no real trade or training he keeps worrying about the future.
Most of his greatest memories involve the tales about distant lands that he heard from the village elders, bards, mercenaries, soldiers and travelers. Once he realized that he was pretty good at memorizing these stories and creating the new ones, he decided to become a storyteller himself. After all, being a bard is a pretty decent profession, even if it's risky.
Should he follow his dream, or is it already time to wake up?
