This isn’t my best work, but anyway.
I had been on the road for many days and grown weary. Searching for a place to rest I rode into a small town on a particularly cold and stormy night.
There were no rooms available in the tavern, the barkeep suggested try the small monastery on the outskirts of town.
Cold and wet made my way to the monastery and knocked on the door, hoping to be heard over the monks that were chanting inside.
Soon enough an older monk with a long grey beard opened the door and motioned for me to come inside.
He lead me over to a fireplace with a large painting of a silver robotic figure above it, and told me I could rest and warm up.
We sat quietly for a while and eventually the old monk broke the silence and asked what I was doing out in such terrible weather.
The memories were still fresh, and not wanting to insult the monks hospitality, I opened up.
I spoke of how I had been searching for a new place to call home ever since my brother had betrayed me, despite my pleas not to, and how his misdeeds were blamed on me by the MCAU council and that they had ruled that I was never to return to their lands.
The monk who had been mostly silent up until this point stopped me. “There is a story from long ago.” he said.
"It tells of adventurers much like yourself, who were exiled from MCAU seemingly never to return, completing what is know as The Rainbow Challenge, and returning to the glorious land of MCAU."
I felt hope growing inside me, knowing that there was a chance to return to my old home.
I asked the old monk what I needed to do…
He handed me a book titled The Rainbow Challenge
