Finally the time had come i was now old enough to go and train for my test.
See My father is a retired Solamnic Knight and I am next in Line to carry my
name on the Everouth name has been in the Solamnic knights for some time now
and it was my fathers wish that I his next of kin join instead of my brother
Christof.  So now begins the training with my father so that I am skilled
enough for the test i will be given within the walls of the Solamnic Keep.

So he tells me that I am supposed to go and help with the fight against goblin
raiders that have been attacking the western edge of town.  So I began my
travels to scout out and locate where the goblins are making there camp.

The forrest around here is dense and it is hard to locate much of anything so
i decided that if i could find a good vantage point I should be able to see a
fire or smoke or something of the sort after night fall.

I scouted around for the better part of 4 hours to find the perfect spot so as
not to be seen. Then it was the waiting game I hadn't heard really anything
for the first few hours but as darkness fell upon the land I noticed a glimmer
of light coming from the forest towards the west about a half a mile in. I
noted the location with a few dead trees then I started on my way back to
town.  Little did i know that I had also been spotted too as I was nearing the
edge of the forest i was ambushed buy two rather Mean looking goblins. the one
was wielding a dagger and the other a large stick they advanced on me slowly. 
using the skills i had been taught I quickly drew my mace and took a defensive

That startled them a bit seeing as they weren't used to being attacked but that
only lasted for a second. before i could blink one rushed me I quickly stepped
out of the way and he ran Smack right into a tree. I whirled around with my
mace and smashed his skull. the other one jumped on my back and started to
choke me I could barely breathe so I ran backwards into the tree to try and
knock him loose he fell but was barely stunned. He thrust his dagger at me
and gashed my leg open.

I quickly conjured up an Icicle and thrust it at the goblin it hit him squarely
in the shoulder. He started to run off but before he made it very far i ended
his life with a final blow to the head.

After that I made my way back into town to tell them what I had found out and
they decided to raise up a militia to take them down once ad for all. I myself
was hurt too badly for the expedition but my task had been completed and now
all I have to do is wait for their time to arrive when i am supposed to be
taken to the Keep and tested.
