Good Bay – Good Bay School of the Bardic Arts today announced that the Lost Wrights would be performing next month at the Scarlet Ribbon Playhouse.

Lady Agatha Ravenwood, Headmistress of the Good Bay School of the Bardic Arts and Mayor of Good Bay made the announcement on the steps of the Playhouse.

"It is with great pleasure that I announce today, that the famed Lost Wrights Company will perform next month here at the Scarlet Ribbon," said Lady Ravenwood. "They will be performing, The Ring of Wishes, a recently recovered work of the playwright Eldaho."

According to information contained at the School of the Bardic Arts, The Ring of Wishes, also known as Brittas Pridum Fudium, or the Ring of Broken Promises in Istarian, tells the story of Proximo, a poor serf on the land of a wealthy knight who sells his soul in exchange for a ring of three wishes. The ring grants Proximo's wishes, but they are distorted and tainted by darkness. Proximo comes to realize the ring isn't worth his soul and seeks the means to undo his pact.

"The play will be performed for three nights in Brookgreen," said Lady Ravenwood. "I urge everyone to get their tickets now. Performances such as this do not come around often."

Tickets can be purchased in advance for 10 steel at the Scarlet Ribbon's box office.

Adventure Hooks

A deeper check of the lore surrounding this play suggests there is more to it than mere dramatic license. The lore indicates that the Ring of Broken Promises is real. It stands to reason that if it was real so too was Proximo; however all mention of him seems to have been expunged from the historical record. Suspecting there is more to the play than meets the eye, Lady Ravenwood has tasked a group of junior bards with uncovering the secrets contained in the Ring of Wishes, before it is performed next month.
