Joshua arrived in Caamar with a cart full of items and materials as well as a Coffer full of coin. He smiled as he entered the Realm of Caamar, thinking this will be a very nice location to begin again. He doubt he would ever be able to return to Sarmiz, but he was quite happy with his going away gifts the realm of Sarmiz let him have before departing.

Joshua settles into his new home and picks up the tomato's someone so generously threw at his home. Joshua then goes and looks at his fields and went to his ranch to look at his chickens and grab the daily eggs from those that decided to lay today. 


After the outside work was finished he returned inside to write transactions in his ledger and add the coins he got from one of his servants that returned from the Grail Monastery from selling some of his goods on the market there which made Joshua smile as the more coins he can add to his coffers the better for his well-being. 


Joshua then went to the Larder to check on his current food inventory to make sure he would not be short on food if Winter Came the Kingdom of Caamar, he was going to be well prepared. He already began stocking soups and meats, eggs of course and some other items.


Joshua then sharpened his weapons and checked his armor to make sure it was ready if needed in a moments notice. Joshua thought perhaps he would start hiring out his field work to concentrate on other matters of his estate The God's knew he was not hurting for coin, from the generous Kingdom of Sarmiz's departing gifts. He might even expand his farm land to a 3rd Field if the labor force in Caamar liked working his current fields he owned and had ready. Time would tell he supposed.


Joshua then sat down and ate his meal and drank some soup to help him keep full and better his body for future adventures or labors.

Strolling up to the town gate of Camaar on my steed, I throw the usual silver coin to the gate guards, after which they immediately open the gate and graciously let me in.  While I'm​ not allowed in Camaar, few men are courageous enough to stand in my way, the men who were dumb enough to served as examples for the rest of the city, but that was long ago.  My visits to camaar were routine weekly and transparent, I was here to redistribute some rich man's coins.  

I had heard rumors of a great theft in city of sarmiz.  Now, normally I would get my cut from any graft in the realm, so I was coming to prospect just how great this score was, and to take my cut.  The rumors were this man was a politician who rose to a top position in the town sarmiz, only to steal everything in the town treasury and warehouse, before fleeing off to live in Camaar.  Seeing as  sarmiz is by a mile the poorest and most crummy town, I was a bit skeptic of if this man was actually a great thief, or just a no-good, two-bit criminal.

I  dismount and walk up and talk to a nearby noble.  He seemed nervous, he was of considerable wealth, but not quite enough to reach my attention.  I said to him, "relax, you're not my mark, can you help me find this man who supposedly made off will sarmiz's money?  I had heard he moved here".  The noble let out a heavy sigh of relief and replied, "Ohhh you mean that guy Joshua", I could tell he was trying to contain a burst of laughter.  After better collecting his composure he continued, "he lives on other side of town, the smelly part.... In the fish market.".  Oh great, I thought... I hated the fish  market, fishing was a large industry in Camaar, and the smell of putrid fish was worse than being in udgars kitchen. I sighed, thanked the noble and threw him a silver coin.  Mounted my steed again and set off to the fish market...

When I arrived the pugnant odor stung my nostrils, enough so that I to stuff my nose inside of my own shirt, opting instead to smell my own manly musk.  I call over to a local vendor and ask him if he knows where a thief named Joshua resides.  Not saying a word he points out a small shack covered in tomatoes.  Nearby the shack I notice what appears to be a slave that hasn't eaten anything but bread in months cleaning some armor that looks like a Bambi could bite through.

I was quite eager to have a new rich man whose wealth I could redistribute but immediately was put off by the appearance of the new mark.  Disappointed, I ride out of the fish market, on my way to pay Baron the regular visit.

Joshua got up and stretched like he did every morning, water basin filled with warm water which he splashed his face with to get him fully awake in the mornings. He then goes too the table to eat his morning food already laid out for him as well as eating utensils and a cup of honey mead which he always enjoys first thing in the morning.

Joshua has gotten into a routine on his lands, which includes making sure his chickens are fed daily,eggs gathered and old chickens slaughtered brutally. He then goes to his fields to check their progress and see they are growing as planned and then he goes and stirs his beer barrels so that the beer is ready to be stored when it has been prepared perfectly.


Joshua also does his daily ledger entries and coin counting to make sure he is not spending more then he takes in most days. Sometimes he sends a servant out with coins to recruit local inhabitants to work his fields if they are required. He sometimes visits the local Taverns and speaks with those inside though not very long most times.

Joshua returns back to his lands as The Autumn Feast has come to an end and he was very proud of dedication and work he made for the Great Kingdom Camaar. He cleans up and sits down at his table to eat some food and drink a few drinks when a knock at the door disturbs him and he gets up and answers it where a missive is delivered with the King of Camaars wax seal.


He sits down and breaks the seal and reads it where he has just learned that for his assistance to the Kingdom of Camaar during the The Autumn Feast Preparations and participation in it. He has been Knighted and entered into the "Order of Cups."


He smiles then another knocks comes to his door and this time when he goes and answers it he is shocked to see the messenger wore the livery of The Imperial Majesty Emperor Lord Arogandor and is handed a missive and a very beautiful piece of armor is brought forward and held out for Sir Joshua to grab.


Sir Joshua thanks the messenger and others with him for delivering the armor. Joshua then closes his door and sits the armor on the table and breaks the Imperial wax seal and reads the missive.

Lord Arogandor wrote:Hello Dear Sir Joshua,

Congratulations with your high score during the Autumn Feast! A Grand Master Celebration Raiment has been delivered at your equipment closet! We hope you will enjoy your well deserved prize.

Thank you for participating!

Yours Sincerely,

Arogandor

Sir Joshua looks up after reading the missive and admires his new piece of armor made by the Royal Imperial Emperor Lord Arogandor's Armorer. Fitting item for Sir Joshua as he had just been knighted and now has a chest piece of armor befitting a Knight. He looks at the fire and thinks awhile before heading off to rest but not before putting the new armor away.

Sir Joshua has been very busy on his lands when a rider appeared with a parchment with the seal of King of Camaar on it. His Majesty has requested the forces of the realm to assemble as a threat has come to the domain of Kingdom of Camaar called Pumpking and his minions . Sir Joshua returned back to his home and donned on his armor and grabbed his Axe and shield. He then goes to the stables and mounts his stead Arimathea and gallops away from his lands not knowing what awaited him ahead. But he knew he had to defend the lands as is his responsibility as a Knight to protect those that were weak,elderly, and others that were unable to defend themselves from the coming threat of Pumpking and his minions. 


Sir Joshua did not know if he would survive the encounter with Pumpking and his minions but he was not afraid of what layed ahead for him as this was another chapter in his Book of Life being written. He would honor and defend Kingdom Camaar with his last breathe if need be.

Sir Joshua returned back to his lands after the Battles with  Pumpking and his minions and their final defeat and destruction, though it was unknown if they would return back to seek retribution for their losses, but for the time being Camaar was safe and just in time as Winter had arrived. He took care of his stead ,feeding and placing water for his stead to drink and unloading all that he acquired in the battles against the evil magic that appeared. Sir Joshua took stuff into his home and set it down and took count on all the stuff he had gotten which was Normal Carnifex Scutum, Normal Carnifex Crescent, Normal Carnifex Leggings, Normal Carnifex Boots, Normal Carnifex Gloves, Normal Carnifex Armor, Normal Carnifex Helmet, Grail Town Militia Pick, Grail Town Militia Shield, 83 Grail Tokens, 21 Silver and 20 Bronze.


     Sir Joshua was very pleased with his success in the battles with the Pumpking and his minions and gotten quite a large and nice haul for his work and fighting. He put the silver and copper in his coffer, placed the armor and weapons away and sat down at his table and ate some Eggs drank some wine and cleaned up then sat by the fire thinking as Winter had come to the great lands and most likely way colder days. Sir Joshua watched as the wood crackled and the fire licked upwards as a cool breeze entered his home.







Congratulations! You did a total of 74,935 damage during the Halloween Event!

Sir Joshua sits up and stretches as he had a very peaceful nights sleep in his Normal Bed that he purchased long ago when he first arrived. As usual he gets up where a basin of luke warm water is ready for him and he splashes some on his face and washes it and washes his hands and then dries them with a small piece of cloth set beside the basin. 


Then he goes to the hall to break fast where a few servants present him his morning meal, Today's meal is Andalusian Stuffed Eggs, and a mug of Honey Ale. Which he took his time and enjoyed the food and drink as today is a special day as it is a holiday to all of the realms.


      Sir Joshua has for a week sent Christmas Gifts to alot of people and he had received some himself, which he was very excited to see what all these presents that have been arriving to his estate contained, but he wanted to wait until the 25th arrived to open them, except 1 that he received from His Imperial Majesty Emperor Lord Arogandor, that one he opened last night. It contained: 
24th of Dec 2017 21:58Merry Christmas! You opened your Present and gained a Grail Stamina Potion and +5 on your Speed!

He still has:

 You have 47 Presents awaiting to be opened!

He decided to wait just a little longer before tackling the task of opening gifts that was starting to clutter up the place a little bit. He decided first to begin cultivating another field, check on his chickens, and gather the eggs laid the start of the new day. 


     He decided to get dressed to head outside and do those tasks first he would first go look for a suitable place to start cultivating a 3rd field and even perhaps look for a suitable location for a 4th area also suitable for a field, he would then mark the area's and then go check the chickens and feed and water them and gather the eggs as well. Perhaps he would even sit outside in the brisk cold morning a little and enjoy the beauty of the morning sun.

Sir Joshua sits down and looked over his ledger and added the final bronze coins to the coffers and then wrote down the amounts and looked back at the previous years parchment with the totals from that previous year and tallied the differences and realized this year was rather a good year as 56899 more bronze was in his coffers then from year a year ago but also he realized that did not include his larder items and stuff on markets around the realms. But liquid asset wise he was sitting rather nicely. 


He hoped as the new year arrived that he would be more successful and prosperous as the previous year. Which he figured he would be with the increase in fields and other things he has done to improve his holdings and land.


He went out and looked over his holdings and assets as a very frigid cold breeze met him and the snow blanked a lot of his land. But he was not worried as he was preparing for winter to arrive and was well stocked to weather it out for quite awhile. He just hoped it didn't last years and that the sun would one day lick the realm and green would be renewed.


Until that time Sir Joshua would relax and work on his plans for when spring did decide to arrive and the thaw started.

Sir Joshua grew restless just eating,drinking and watching the fire lick the hearth in his home,so he instructed one of his servants to saddle his war horse and another to help him don on his armour he was going out of Caamar for a bit to adventure a little and he decided while he was at it he might as well go see the witch he had had been hearing about in the Camaar Tavern. He also instructed another servant to pack up all the ingredients as he was told the witch like trading ingredients at specific ratio's usually better for her then the one offering but he had stockpiled alot of ingredients and he decided instead of completing a quest by herb searching he thought perhaps the witch might be a better option so off he went. 


Sir Joshua arrived and the witch was very happy to do business with him and he exchanged to get what he wanted to complete the grail quest. With the grail quest finished he finished trading with the witch for more Red Berrys as the King of Caamar told him they were very much in demand as they were needed for Healing potions and would fetch a decent amount of bronze .


Sir Joshua returned and sent one of the servants to Caamar to put the Red Berry's on the market while he surveyed his lands to begin another cultivation of now his 5th field. After marking the spot he went into Caamar and posted the job on the board and paid the required fee to pay the people that decided to work cultivating the spot. 


Sir Joshua went to the Tavern then and sat down and spoke with whomever entered for quite a while shutting down the Tavern for the night when he left which the Drunk Tavern Keeper was glad to see him go as earlier he threatened him if he touched him again he would be 2 hands less and it would be the last thing he touched with his hands again.
