Greetings Master Claws,
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tiberious Maximillion III, and I write to you today in response to your advertisement regarding a new hireling.
You may wonder why a member of such a prestigious family would choose this career path. Sadly, life at home has become impossible under the overbearing rule of my father. I won’t get into the specifics, however suffice it to say that he and I have significant ideological differences about how my days should be spent.
I require freedom. He would have me tucked away in some dusty tower pouring over trade agreements and historical documents day and night.
Furthermore, the political climate here has become rather unpalatable. This may be known to you, but the Imperial City, a once shining jewel of strength and prosperity, lies in ruin. Rumour has it that it has even fallen under control of Daedric forces. If that wasn’t enough, Cyrodiil is being torn to pieces by the warring factions of the Aldmeri, Daggerfall and Ebonheart pacts.
If I am to escape my father’s oppressive clutches and avoid the Alliance war, I will need to find a new source of income. On top of that, the promise of adventure speaks to me in a way that makes my whole being quiver with anticipation.
I expect to arrive in Shimmerene within a day or two and then make my way across Summerset to reach the city of Alinor. Once I arrive, I shall locate you as instructed.
I trust that this missive finds you in good health.
– Tiberious Maximillion III
