As he walked Chris noticed a blue light off into the distance. It was the only sort of light he could see in the whiteout, and turned to follow it. He just hoped it wasn’t a spirit leading him off a cliff. That would be a great way to introduce myself to the guild. Get killed on their front door.
When Chris got closer he noticed it was actually a wolf that glowed with an unearthly blue light. It sat on its haunches and looked at the human quizzically. It was only when Chris approached that he noticed the storm that surrounded him also appeared to taper off. It still raged out past a certain point, but nearby the wolf it was calm by comparison. The two looked at each other as if expecting the other to act first.
Taking deep breath Chris felt that he should speak. ”I don’t suppose you can lead me to the guild.” The wolf cocked its head to the side a little, and then without a word turned and began up the trail Chris had been walking. The human only hesitated until the storm nearly engulfed him again before hurrying to catch up with the wolf. He stayed a good 20ft from the creature as he wasn’t sure whether to trust it or not. It is a wolf. Maybe the guild uses them as guides.
After 15 minutes of walking a golden glow pierced the white haze. After a few minutes more the vague outlines of a building could be seen in the gloom. The wolf turned off the path and headed into the hills surrounding the area. Chris hesitated a moment not knowing whether to follow the wolf or keep on the path. After the snow engulfed him again he decided to go to the building. Anything to get out of this snow.
Approaching Chris noticed it as a really big building with large double doors out front. The snow tapered off around the building even more than with the wolf, and he could see still see the storm raging farther out. Walking up the steps he couldn’t help but shiver. It was mostly from the cold, but it was also a little bit from the prospect of joining a guild. As he reached out to the door he noticed his hand shaking. It was then that he noticed his teeth were chattering and his body was shaking. He was about a minute from freezing altogether.
Ignoring how rude it would be to barge in Chris hurriedly opened the door and slipped inside. He closed it just as quickly behind him and stood there in the warm entryway shivering and trying to get warmth back into his limbs. His teeth chattered from the cold, and he was certain his limbs had a light blue tint to them. The warmth from the building slowly began to seep into his body, and he silently blessed whoever kept the fireplaces stocked. Frozen water began to thaw and drip onto the floor as he tried to get his bearings.
