    After leaving her old ways, innocent little Berry Bug decided to travel into town and begin a life of honest living. Once leaving the tavern and doing some business at the bank, she found a stranger looking for assistance, and offering the promise of some honest coin. They negotiated a fair price of 5,000 gold pieces, for her escort services on a long adventure all the way to the lands known as Shame.

    So they departed from Skara, and hired passage beyond the docks:

    It was no wonder why this "brave" seeker needed assistance to his destination, the first encounter of danger, he merely hides behind a tree!

    This brave daredevil even allowed himself to be bested in courage from a mountain goat once a mindblasting Air Elemental was stumbled upon:

    Berry Bug was nearly done in when trying to sneak the follower beyond the orc fort. Stealth like tactics are hard to pull off when someone makes as much noise and chatter as this fool! Swarmed by orcs of all kinds, and nearly bested by their mage leader the party moves on!

    The journey continued, fighting past giant lizards wielding spears, bypassing rats and trolls, slaughter after slaughter, by nightfall Berry Bug earns her badge in this virtue by leading the seeker into the grounds of Shame!

    After exiting the bottomless cave, Berry Bug notices that this is not 5,000gp, this purse is a bit light. After dismounting from her ever faithful spirited ostard, she carefully hides and sneaks back to politely ask him for the remainder sum, for her diligence and efforts.

    Though our dear Bjorn admitted he did not have the proper amount of gold, he politely offered a sword and some fine tailored wares as remainder of payment:

    Feeling good about her full days work, and hoping to make it to her "home" on the outskirts of Skara to continue her quest to help strangers in the virtue of compassion, she hustles her way back to the hut to finish a meal and hit the hay.
