I am leaving the Marshlands for the first time. Ever since The Long Patrol came and fended of the bandits pillaging our small community I have envied them. I told my parents I was going to join them, they respected this, all though my mum had a little tear in her eye. I was givin' enough vittles to last me a few moons and a bow and arrow, enough to get me to Salamandastron. I said my good bye and was off south. I will write again when I reach Salamandastron. Wish me luck on my trip.
