Keep over the shadowfell

You Would Think...

I guess when you spend the majority of your life in an environment where everything is the same ‘day in day out’, then it’s to be expected that stepping out into the real world would certainly be a bit of a shock. The experiences i’ve had over the last couple of weeks have opened my eyes to a world that isn’t regimented, that doesn’t care about your inner beliefs or struggles and that isn’t afraid to leave you behind. While i’m indeed grateful my years of training have prepared me for combat, i feel now that so much of the world is only being revealed to me for the first time, for which i was certainly not prepared. A temple where everyone worked together towards a common goal, to a world where everyone, every group, every city is looking out for themselves, wondering how they can get ahead. A tale was once told to me about a bunch of sticks being harder to break than a solitary one… in this world it would seem the sticks prefer to remain solitary but with their ends sharpened to ensure their survival. My current companions, for the most part, seem like decent folk although appearances may be deceiving in the long run. We shall see, but at this moment i’m prepared to put my complete trust in nobody. Initially the vast world and endless possibilities that laid in front of me made me excited and somewhat giddy at the mere thought of it all. While outwards nothing much has changed, inside I’m feeling a little jaded, however hopefully as time passes this will fade as i become more accustomed to living in this ugly yet beautiful world. You would think…
