Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away, lived a girl. She was known for delivering all kinds of wares and messages to people, but no one really knew her name. They called her the "unknown messenger".
One day the girl was called to Goddard castle, by the king himself.
She arrived at the gates and yelled out.
The gate opened and she went inside the castle.
As she went into the throne room, she bowed her down in sign of respect to the king.
A well known custom.
The king asked her to approach the throne, he wanted to speak with her directly.
The king explained why he had called her. He had a very important task for the girl.
"You have to deliver this letter to the king of Rune himself!" - said the king - "It is of utmost importance that you reach Rune castle without delay and bring this letter undamaged, or war can break out in the land!"
"I will do as you ask my king!" - replied the girl and took the letter.
Burdened with this heavy task, she went outside the castle gates and thought about the journey that awaits her.
She tried to figure out in her mind the quickest and safest way to Rune castle.
The girl opened up her map and traced the possible routes.
When she had it all figured out, she begun her journey.
But evil never sleeps and trouble awaited her soon enough. She got attacked by a giant wolf on the plains of Goddard.
She pierced the beast through the heart with eagle eye and continued her journey.
As days went by, she passed through various places.
She visited Varka Village, where she stopped for a quick rest and information about the roads ahead.
The girl wanted to know if any bandits had been seen in this parts.
After few more days, she entered the swamp area and stopped by a near by caravan outpost, to resupply.
The commander of the outpost explained that it would be easiest to pass through the forest of the dead as it is uninhabited during the day.
But as nameless girl arrived at the FOTD, she was attacked by stragglers...
... and bandits.
He jumped out of nowhere and demanded adena or her life.
She refused the demands and he attacked her.
She fought bravely and was able to eliminate the threat.
But the bandit had stabbed her with a poison coated blade and she felt very sick.
The nameless girl had heard about a necromancer living in those parts of the forest and she had no choice but to seek his help.
And indeed she found him and payed for the cure. Very unpleasant encounter.
After all wounds were healed, the girls embarked on her journey once more, she was couple of days ahead of schedule, so she decided to stop in Rune town to resupply.
She was starving, so first she went to buy some provisions. Pumpkins were delight in those parts of the land.
She also resupplied weapons and arrows.
Some of the finest arrows were on sale.
After all said and done, she went straight to the castle.
Up on the hill her gazed stopped at the magnificent sight of the Rune castle.
Very happy that her journey was almost concluded, the girl rushed towards the gates.
The bridge was quite long.
As she approached the gatekeepers she yelled "Message for the king!"
The guards stripped her from all her weapons and opened the gate.
Once inside the inner courtyard she continued to the throne room.
She bowed to the king and was asked by his steward to approach the throne.
The king looked at her intrigued.
As she went up, the steward demanded to receive the message in the name of the king, but the girl would not give it to him. "It is for his highness eyes only!" - she yelled - "I will not give it to anyone else, you can take me to prison if you want!".
"Hahaha" - yelled the king - "I like your spirit girl, approach, show me the news your bear."
As he read the letter his expression changed.
"Girl," - he said - "You risked your life bringing me this letter. A letter that could change a lot of fates, I thank you for that!"
"It was my duty, lord" - bowed the girl
"What is your name girl?" - asked the king
"I have none, my lord" - replied the girl
"You have none?!" - asked the king - "Well then, from now on, for all your efforts in keeping the peace in the kingdom I grant you the title of my court messenger! You shall now be known as Aya the messenger.
And thus our story concluded.
