After miles of walking, I finally made it to Arkadia. Recently independent, I ask for acceptance into this faction, never to return to Arete or New Giruvegan. As the story said, I quit the Protectors to join you because the faction seemed inactive and dead. I want to be part of this faction as an equal, as everyone else is. I did a lot to the Protectors, but I never got anything back, so I hope to be wanted. And to the Protecters... Good luck with further endeavors!
