“On a hot summer day, after a long and tiring adventure, Devenmor the Paladin has sought his old friend and adventurer, the wise mage Dragobeast, to help him in his holy quest against the evil forces of Boredom!
The yellow robed mage was an expert in the Four Elements, but for such a grand venture, there was one thing that could help them rally the adventurers, the legendary Quintessence! But no one has seen it, no one even knew what it looked like. But that didn’t stop our heroes.
They decided that they alone could not make it, they needed more people, and they needed a place to train them, to relax, to know their fellow adventurers. So they began looking. From the frozen mountain tops of Haland-Ri to the barren wastelands of Pag-Rati, they scoured the land, until the perfect place was found!
Right after the Attikan Molerat’s lair, on the square across the Palace of Laurel, they found the perfect spot! They gave the greedy owner his gold and began fixing it, from top to bottom, hammer on nail, spells raising the broken walls and cleaning, brushes painting in colors as bright as the sun, tapestries of legendary heroes hang from the walls!
Then they filled it with rivers of Dwarven ale, snacks from the secret recipes of the Kenders, sweets made by the Gnomes, and the Humans brought the games.
Oh, the games! Cards, dice, figures, bells, tokens, boards!
But it still needed a name. Something that would show the world the effort and the life that was given to this place. And then Devenmor spoke, without hesitation or a second thought he said: “How about Quinta Essentia?”
And it clicked! After all, they did put heart and soul in this place!
By the first fall it was ready. They talked to the Guilds, they contacted the Clans, hoping to rally as many as they could on their quest against the Warlord Boredom. And no one, not the greatest Seer could predict the waves of adventurers that would fill the halls of Quinta Essentia that night!
Now, don’t fret young adventurer. In the halls of Quinta Essentia you can relax drinking hot chocolate or cold ale, enjoy some of the snacks or Elven herbs, and of course, ask the rest of the adventurers for advice on your own quest! Test your mettle on games of chance, skill and knowledge! You can gather your party in the Cathedral for blessings, or down at the Dungeon for a Tutorial quest.
As for the Warlord Boredom’s forces? They will always try and take over, but the Adventurers of Quinta Essentia will always say “Not today!”
