All right, I should probably be grateful to be living in a world with no darkspawn. No worries about getting woken up in the middle of the night by an attack of shrieks, no getting sent into the Deep Roads to investigate no-one-knows-what...instead I'm getting paid to sit on a beach surrounded by largely naked people. Many of them women. Very pretty women. Who might drown, in which case I'd get to save the day and be a hero, hurrah.
...so why am I so bored?
I tried to buy a sword and shield just so I could get in some practice on the side, even if it doesn't look like I'll need it here, but Maker's teeth, the paperwork...and one merchant even threatened to call the police when I asked about it.
