Abridged History

Lars was born to a merchant house, however he always dreamed of being a wizard. When Lars came of age he applied to the local guild, and things went downhill from there. Lars borrowed money from Caroline DuMond , an eleven noblewoman with some shipping interests, to cover expenses and she wanted returns.

Unfortunately for Lars There was a large and talented class that year. Lars himself didn’t lack talent, but there weren’t that many available mentors. This fate, while not uncommon stalled Lars learning. Caroline would not approve, she was sending correspondence saying she had to pull back his funding until Lars could provide a return on her investment.

While in a tavern thinking bout his next move Lars overheard a conversation. A captain he knew, James Moore. Old James was in a pickle he needed a navigator, the last one was hired aboard an eleven ship. Lars knew enough about the stars to fake it, combined with his novice magic he was able to plot courses with expert skill.

After the ship made port in Freeport the captain released the crew. He had some business to take care of, and was planning on rehiring for the next voyage. Now with a bit of coin and time you enter Freeport.
