Lifeboat for Hire
It was early in the morning as you padded your way through the clean tiled thoroughfare. The Horizon was still casting it's shadow over you as you approached the western gate. A nickname by many for the crenelated defensive wall of Reim, the massive stone bastion ringed the city in it's totality. The only way in or out through carefully guarded gates. A fleet of trained Avilli patrol the skies of Reim day and night, any who attempt entry in this way without proper, prior, authorization is quickly challenged and brought down if necessary. The incline of the road became steeper, and many merchants were sweating as they passed you with their carts of goods from the docks below. Like in many aspects of life, things got harder in Reim the closer you got to it's borders.
It wasn't too much farther past Castercreek Square that you arrived to your destination. Next to the workers sprucing up the large wooden art piece advertising the School of Arcane Lore and Magic was a questboard, tucked in a small alcove surrounded by an almost equally small garden. One advertisement immediately caught your eye, but that was the point. The large paper was smooth and glossy, large enough that it almost completely covered all of the scraps of job postings put there before it.

Draw or Write about your character accepting the quest and preparing for the journey. What might they expect to see out on the open sea? Or what do they plan on doing with the reward? What do they gather from home before venturing out?
This is part of a location questline!
Location questlines put your character directly into a story of that location. While the story is directed with each prompt, you still have different ways to address the situation! Each part of the questline will unlock the next part for you to continue on your adventure! Be warned though, there may be dangers ahead so your kyvalorian better be prepared for the journey(and stat checks!).
Each step of the quest will reward you with bonus rewards, some of them exclusive to that questline. Once the questline is completed your character will earn a special badge showing it!
Your character must be in the location for your quest to be accepted.

Seven Wonders of the Ocean
There’s plenty to see at the sea
Though the port of Reim is its main attraction, the beaches are equally teeming with life; from the weird and wonderful jellyfish floating in the waters, to the turtles chilling out in the shallows, there’s plenty to look at. It is around this time of the year that little baby turtles start their journey from their dens at the shore to the sea, and Kyvalorians wandering the beach sometimes help these little guys out. Others prefer to look at the various shoals of fish populating the waters.
Draw or write about your character discovering the fauna of Reim’s beaches. Do they help out the baby turtles? Do they go fishing? Or perhaps they prefer to look at the jellyfish from a safe distance?
