Tutorial Mission: Exordior Ruins

Hello, my child. I heard that you are planning to join Capella’s expedition, is that true? Well, even if I’d rather have you stay in the safety of the village, I understand that you may have your reasons to take part in it and I do support your choices. If you have made up your mind already, why don’t you come with me? This old lady will teach you the basics of questing~♪


🌱 Exordior Ruins 🌱

A little far from the village but still close enough to see the simplistic houses at the distance, the Exordior Ruins are where most of our resources come from: there are trees that provide us wood, small wild critters that may be captured for meat and coal that’s near enough of the surface to be hand-mined. Since the villagers have been exploring those ruins for some years, the resources are getting scarce but the area is well known and safe, which makes it the perfect place for your first adventure

Amalthea will be there if you need any help, feel free to ASK HER if you have any questions.

“To My Dearest Friends,

May this letter have found everyone on the blessed, shining, bright day. I also hope that the Observatory is doing well too, and everyone is well-taken care of.

It’s been a while since I decided to step out of my comfort zone and join the expedition. Even since I started, I encounter a memory keeper while exploring the village in wintertime and it became my companion. Like a type of Robin bird, the memory keeper has a plant horn, Feral paws and Holograms, full of stamps, letters, and postcard that is for Christmas that her appearance inspired me to write a letter to you all. I named the keeper ‘Esperanza’, because Robin bird means new beginning and hope and, in another language, The name means ‘To Hope’. It’s also full of hope that I write to everyone, carrying my hope for my hometown to be the same as when I leave the town.

While preparing for the Reconnaissance Expedition, I hear that there are nearby ruins that I felt it’s a good place to practice ahead of the start of the Expedition. So, Esperanza and I went ahead, into the ruins. Esperanza jumped in joy, this is her first adventure into the wild, green forest. So was also my first adventure, even since I first opened my eyes to this world. Trees dominate the ruins, and the sounds of critters and precious coals, in the ruin’s area. They are the resources that can be useful for our expedition. Tree to make wood for shelter, Critters as food for the group, and coals to make a fire to keep our warmth. Esperanza and I had a tough choice to choose. It’s when I remembered something. When I was young, playing with you all, someone made a wooden telescope for us to play with under a beautiful meteor shower, all of us made our own wishes, a secret that is even now untold.

I soon realized that I was meant to be an explorer, even when I felt I am not ready for it. My favourite spacecraft too is an explorer. It’s because of this spacecraft that I can stand up for myself. I do want to name the keeper after the spacecraft, but the appearance is not fitted to name after it. I did just say Wood aloud, and only after I reflected for a while, Esperanza had already gathered the resource we need. I looked into Esperanza’s eyes, beaming with hope. She had reminded me what my favourite spacecraft meant to me, a symbol of change, a symbol of a new beginning.

I even wonder if it is the spacecraft’s decision to bring Esperanza and me together as every time whenever I saw Esperanza, she is like a reflection. I may not know what Esperanza’s origin is, nor how she even ended up where I met her, but what I know is that I will take good care of her, and even hope that everyone can see her in person.

But for now, rest assured as I have Esperanza on my side to keep me company. I will make sure that I will share the stories of our town and us with her. After all, she is a memory keeper, she can tell our stories even when we eventually will disappear from this world one day, she is our legacy like how we are the legacy of Cassini and I do wish, that one day, she will shine as bright as that spacecraft. Right now, as I am writing this letter, she fell asleep, as it’s the eve before the Expedition will officially start. Starting in the morning, Esperanza and I will officially begin our journey. I am not sure when we will reunite, but I really hope Cassini can bring us together again.

May the stars, bring us together again, my friends. Till that fateful day.

Thinking of everyone,

Oracherini

P.S: Please, name the Observatory on my behalf too. I forget to name it before I leave the Observatory to you all.”

[I tried to write the story in the letter format as this is my first time doing it. Also, I like to gather wood. I’m sorry in advance and will be happy to edit if there is anything that is against the rules! (I got worried about posting the story here directly instead of Deviantart Journal being a rule breaker for example.) ]
