Well met, good gentles. Many of you do not know me and so an introduction is in order. An introduction is a significant thing—it is a definition of who you are. And so, here is my story (rest assured that every word of it is true):Some know me as Jamib-Ru. Some know me as Pilgrim. Others as Messenger.In my youth, a have driven a chariot of steel across a desert beyond the Valley of Death. I have marched through the dark forests beyond the Danube. I sojourned in a land beyond the sunrise. I was carried by the great warship of the Emancipator. I rode through a Babylonian sandstorm which turned day into night and camped in the ruined palace of an overthrown tyrant. Now, my youth is spent. And so I have laid aside the implements of war, but my son follows in my footsteps. He too has driven a chariot beyond the Valley of Death at the vanguard of paladins and he has marched through the dark forests beyond the Elba. But that is his story to tell.As for me, in all my travels I won neither fame nor fortune, but in those long years I journeyed far enough to have gained a little wisdom. This is what I have learned: I do not desire fame or fortune, but instead I seek your friendship.
