The heroic deeds of the avatars that helped our farmer find his animals didn't go unnoticed and aroused the interest on Novia's furry friends. And old but witty writer, famous for the success of his countless novels has been hired by a nobleman to write him a personalized story about his numerous pets. Unfortunately, the writer has never had any pets himself and doesn’t know anything about them other than the fact that they need to be fed from time to time. Therefore, he’s asking your assistance, Avatars! Tell him a story about your pet in New Britannia: About your first encounter, how you care for them, how much work they are. About cute wide eyes, fluffy fur, cold snouts, brightly colored plumages or even scales. Or about an amazing adventure you had with them, and how it’s all worth it for the joy they bring. Tell him a story that moves to tears, makes him laugh, that gives him the chills or inspires to think and make him understand what it means to be a pet owner and to help him deliver a decent story. You call that shameless plagiarism? Nah… Of course, you will be paid for your efforts.
