*After an intense storm, A lone soul spots a landmass in the distance. Needing to dock somewhere to possibly resupply, the decision was made take the plunge, bracing for any danger. Upon a closer look, the area was a bustling port town with an assortment of docks for differing routes. The brave soul eases their ship aside an empty port to avoid any issues with bigger ships, hopping onto new land. Before long, this person was approached by a few of the townsfolk, others staring nearby.*
???: Ahoy there, Stranger! I see you were polite enough to dock out of the way of other ships!
???: Quiet aren't you? Are you here for trade? Do you speak our language?
Player: I can understand you, yes. Can you tell me where I am?
???: Definitely a foreigner, especially with that getup you're wearing! You've reached the Kingdom of Rune-Midgard! This is Alberta, city of commerce and trade!
???: Yep! So where are you coming from, Stranger?
Player: ...My land lost its name a long time ago. Its no longer habitable, for me. I've come a long way to forge a new life.
???: Ooooh! The life of an adventurer, eh? You sure look exotic enough for the task! Ah, shoot! Forgive me for not introducing myself. I'm [insert NPC name here]. I keep up with this city like I keep up with my receipts!
Player: Alright. My name is [Player Name]. I don't suppose you could point me in the direction of goods...
NPC: Hah! Of course I can, though from the way you look, you could use more than just goods! If you're looking for a new life, this is the best place to have it!
Player: Hmm... From the looks of this city, it certainly seems possible. Rest wouldn't be bad, either...
NPC: Then its unanimous! We'll help get you situated so you can get yourself a place to live and zeny to live, and if its one thing this city knows a lot about, its zeny! Hahaha!
Player: Looks like my voyage bore fruit. Great news, at last...
NPC: I'll get some of the crewmen around to help you out. I'd bet they're curious about you, too! Now lets get started!
