Fan Fiction: Hireling Mail
Letter From Montaro - Hireling Mail by Roguexxx - Episodes 3 & 4
Edited by roguexxxmenb14_ESO on January 21, 2015 9:58PM
Hey ESO; roguexxx here! I'm writing because I wish to share something I started as a joke on ESO. While in game; I've been helping one of my guild members find Columbine; for which he really needed. Since then; I've because his unofficial hireling; for which he gives me in game gold for his mats. One day; I decided to write a Hireling Letter like those we see in game. I spend some time crafting this letter so it sounds like a actual Khajiit hireling. It was so much fun; and he really like the letter; that I wrote a second one.
Since I am spending so much time crafting these letters; I thought I should like to keep a record of each letter, and share them with everyone. Unlike the in game hirelings; my letters don't come every day, and are a bit longer; I will be posting them as soon as I create one. To catch everyone up; this Khajiit named Montaro was hired to collect rare flowers for potions. During his trails and tribulations; he has had to endure the 'Cold and Wet' of Skyrim's Eastmarch area. As most Khajiit don't like being wet; Montaro found his time in Eastmarch to most disagreeable to him. When it wasn't raining; it was snowing, or he'd have to swim in icy cold water. Either way; Montaro didn't like his time there; as was very happy to arrive in The Rift, as it was much drier there. However; Montaro ran in the Skyrim's Sabra Cats. Thinking of home in Elsweyr; he tried to tame one of these cats to use as a guard and carry mount. However; the Sabra cat had it's own ideas of eating Montaro instead. He had to kill many of Sabra cat before giving up. Now on to his latest mail; and his next adventure as he starts off on his trip to Daggerfalls. Hope you all enjoy the read; and come back for more as they get posted.
Greeting dear patron. Montaro here again with your next order of supples. Montaro is happy to report that this one is finally leaving those dreadful Sabra Cat behind Montaro; as this one it on a caravan ride to Daggerfalls. It is a very long ride; and this on just had time to stop to mail your order. As this one was on Montaro's way; this one had a most disagreeable time with a nasty lizard-man who calls himself Hidez-Hiz-Ore. Montaro was trying to get this last Columbine; when he ran out of nowhere saying it was his. Montaro almost missed the mail runner. This one had to pay the lizard to let Montaro take the flower; then pay the horseman to take your order. Hope the rest of Montaro's trip is better."
Since this was posted on my guild web page; I did a copy/paste of the original post. Just this morning; I posted a second letter from Montaro on his trip to Daggerfall. Here's that letter as well.
Greetings from Stros M'Kia
Bright Moons to you; good patron. Montaro with a shippment for you. This one is amazed how a bit of bad luck can product so much good luck. The caravan Montaro was on lead this one to Rihad in Hammerfell; from there Montaro took a ship to Daggerfall, but the ship was run aground by some pirated in Stros M'Kai. Once there; Montaro met a sea captain needing help. Since Montaro lost everything in the wreak; and is still needs to pick up your money from Daggerfall; this was a great opportunity. While helping this captain out; Montaro came across lots of supples for you. Everywhere Montaro looked; there was another flower to pick."
With the warm sands under Montaro's paws; and the sun high in the air, Montaro feels truly blessed by Jone and Jobe this day. Hoping these suppples find you equally as well. May Bright Moons light your way; and warm sands lighten your steps.
Montaro had a good little run in Stros K'ia while doing some quests. I found lots of mats; so I send a new supple out. Because of the length of this one; I had to send it in two parts, but found got to post which one was which. Hope you found it entertaining.
Thanks for joining Montaro and me on this journey. I'm having a lot of fun writing these letters; and coming up with fun stuff for Montaro to talk about. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do; and come back for more. See you all soon. Paul
