Reason for participation in quest: Anoye knows that the kingdom would falter without the princess so decided to help save the princess who helped her live a good life up until now.
Appearance: Anoye has short light brown hair that fluffs out and frames her face. Her eyes are bright blue with speckles of grey. She’s average height but fairly slim. Her skin is pearly white.
Personality: Anoye is a bit different from others in a sense that she talks in third person. She’s a tad bit quiet and shy. She’s really kind but can throw people off with her temper. She’s not weak she just comes off as weak with her childlike ways. She doesn’t prefer to fight but she knows how to protect herself. And others? Well, good luck others, this girl can’t save you >.>…
((Nice :) should someone make a botonist or something? Someone who studies plants and would know a lot about this herb and many of the other plants?))
(( I can if you want! ))
Name: Camden Ryder
Skill: Botonist (Knows everything and anything about herbs and plants. He gathers the food for the group, because he's useless otherwise.)
Reason: His sister was killed. Since then, he vowed to help protect young maidens in any way that he can.
Appearance: Camden is meek in appearance. He only stands around 5'-4" in height. He is only slightly muscular, but not enough for anyone to notice. His skin has a pale tone, and he is always really skinny. He has green eyes and kinky black hair.
Personality: Camden is extremely shy compared to most. Despite this, he is very kind and caring and would never (and is unable) hurt a fly. He is timid at times, yet extremely loyal to all. He prefers to keep to himself, and talks to very few. He is intimidated by many.
((Haha I like it :) ))
((You guys want to begin? :) ))
((I'm all for it :) what about you, Star?))
(( Yes please! :-) Since you began the thread, I assume you will go first! :) ))
((Lead the way, Ryter :P))
There the townspeople gathered: the center of the kingdom. The bravest of the brave stepped up and took on the responsibility -- no, the duty of saving princess from a most foul sickness. Kerli was the first to step up. "I, with honor, put my own life on the line, to save our fair princess from a most terrible fate," Kerli pledged with her hand over her heart. The speaker for the princess presented Kerli with a sack of supplies like food, rope, and extra arrows.
In the back of the crowd shouting came. A man, a thief, by the name of Bink was forcefully shoved into the open circle. The shackles jingled as two buff men threw Bink to the ground. " 'e's 'ere to get rid of 'is jail time," one man said. He lifted Bink into the air and unlocked the shackles. Then he threw Bink back to the ground.
Epoline strode forward to where Kerli had just pledged. "I, with honor, put my own life on the line to save our fair princess from a most terrible fate." Epoline staded, her gaze not wavering from the speaker. As a warrior, she was presented with necessary battle gear and supplies. Rewtrieving her supples, she sidestepped to stand in line with Kerli.
Camden scrambled forward, almost tripping. "I-I-I p-pl-pledge to save our f-fair princess from a m-most terrible f-fate." he mumbled, so that hardly anyone could make out what he was saying. The princess' speaker rolled his eyes. He didn't present Camden with any supplies, for he pegged him as a useless weakling. He would have to come up with his own supples and skills to prove he was worthy enough for this duty.
Young Procutteus watched the brief comotion from a distance, but his mind was set on the first girl. Kerli. He'd heard that she was a master of archery, and he was desperate for a new trainer. And maybe, if he went on this quest, he'd be respected in the kingdom, and finally people would realize his courage. But instead, he waited. He just didn't have the bravery. He kept trying to muster some, but there was none to be found.

Edron stepped up quickly after the archer. He looked around at the crowd with a foolish smile, as if he was one step higher than all of them. He raised an eyebrow at the speaker, and slightly raised his chin, setting his hands behind his back.
"I, Sir Edron, gladly and respectfully accept to take on this daring quest. And I most definitely shall return will the precious herb and rescue Her Highness from her ill state." The speaker presented Edron with minimal supplies, as he'd already brought some of his own.
((Edron stepped up quickly after Camden.))
Kerli stood proud facing the gateway to danger. She was ready to take on disaster. As names were spoken, her heart pounded in her chest. Alexander, Xavier, Ludwig, and a few more. She was giddy with anxiety. Beside her stood the sorry excuse of a man, Bink. She neither spoke nor acknowledged his existance despite the fact that she didn't even know what he'd been incarcerated for.
Epoline waited anxiously as the rest of the people pledged. She was sizing up the rest of them, and found none of them appeared to be of greater strength than she. However, the archer beside her proved awfully skilled, she would have to watch out for her. To her right, was a small meek boy. He appeared to be weak. "What are you even doing here?" she snorted.
Camden looked up nervously at the girl who had just spoken to him. No one had ever used that tone with him, or talked down to him in such a way. He quickly averted his eyes, hoping to avoid conversation. His eyes focused on a young man in the distance, standing away from the crowd. With a friendly gaze and a small smile, he almost willed him to join the crowd. He seemed less intimidating, and a possible prospect for a friend.
Edron looked down the line of volunteers and snorted. None are as skillful as I, he thought to himself. He noticed the weakling boy and looked away. Why was someone like him taking the journey? People like that weren't fit for the troubles that would rise.
* * *
Procutteus sighed. Time to get it over with. He slung his bow and arrows over his shoulder and stepped forward.
"I pledge to risk my life to save our fair princess from a terrible fate," he said quietly before stepping onto the end of the long line of volunteers. He glanced down the line and spotted the archer, Kerli. He had to be taught. This voyage could be his chance to learn from a true master.
By the time everything was done and over with, there were twenty volunteers. Kerli was given the signal and she began to march to the gates. The commoners cheered as she led the twenty people out of the kingdom, for some, the very last time. Once everyone filed out, the gates were closed and the twenty were in complete silence. They stood in a forest. Kerli was suddenly taken by a feeling she'd never felt before: fear of the unknown. "Who has the map?" she asked the large group. Bink looked around the forest and sneekily began making his way to the back of the group. He hadn't imagine this quest would be like this: with freedom. He was a free man, and he could do whatever he wanted/
"He gave it to me," A man said, pushing past Edron and handing the map to Kerli. Edron glared at the back of the man's head, but started to take in the scenery. Making enemies isn't wise in these conditions, he thought.
* * *
Procutteus stayed near the front of the group, since that's probably where archers would be needed most. He was entranced by the forest; he hadn't been outside the city walls in so long. He glanced back at Kerli, the trainer, and stood ready for any possible orders he might recieve.
