Whispers In Secret (Story pt. 1)
This is only the beginning
This quest does not require a location for your character to participate!
This is a legacy quest! This means this was a previous part of the ongoing story of Painted Relics so while what your characters do in this part of the story dont affect the next chapter, you can still participate to gain some previous rewards, and to place your character into kyvalores story.
While going about your busy day, your eyes catch something among the street. Nothing seemed particularly interesting about it, and if you were being honest, it looked like a scrap of paper that was tossed aside intended for the trash, and yet.. You reach for it. Feel it on your paws and glance over it. Strange markings and runes decorate the page that you’ve seen only on ancient relics, but not any known language to any living Kyvalorian you know.
Something about it feels… enticing. Like a strange invitation that speaks to the deepest parts of your soul. A desire to know what it says, understand it, speak it…
A whisper enters your mind, a callous tone about it. A feeling of dread overwhelms you. Something about this magic that pulses from the scrap you now hold feels wrong, tainted somehow. The parchment is speaking to you in words you cannot understand, it’s voice harsh, crackling, and growling. Words that cannot be translated and yet you feel that if you listen long enough you’ll be able to decipher at least the meaning of the words.
Draw or write about your character finding this strange parchment. How do they react?

Side Quest: The Weary Merchant
Upon perusing the wares of the shops you stumble upon a merchant with the strangest stock. Upon his table, covered in dust and dirt from age, lay artifacts of an age long past. Towers of old handpainted pots, weapons of all shapes and sizes, and relics with unreadable runes. Two things that stand out to you, almost beckiningly are a few strange coins with old runes and a uneasy aura of magic around them, and a few small stone bird statues that could fit in the palm of your hand.
Draw or write about your character perusing this odd shop and obtaining one(1) of these two items.
This is a story quest for characters who did not previously gain either the strange coin or the bird statuette in a previous quest.
While this quest does not affect the story of Kyvalore like other Story quests, this quest lets you get an item needed so you can participate in a current story quest or an item that lets your character gather rewards.
