You look like you know how to handle a sword. I'm sure you know just how many threats Neverwinter is facing, so it's no surprise that the Neverwinter Guard is short on warriors.
We've been working alongside mercenaries and adventurers like yourself, but hired help isn't enough. There are tasks that we're only allowed to assign to members of the Guard.
The long and short of it is that we need more hands. If you're interested in working for the Guard, talk to Sergeant Creed further up the road. He'll tell you about the temporary positions we're offering.
One of the recruiters sent you my way, eh? Well, it's good to have help. We don't have the funding to hire you as a fully ranked member, assuming that's even something you want.
You'll be treated as a Guardsman corporal for the purposes of the missions I'll be giving you. You'll receive a commission for each and then be released from further immediate obligations. It won't be too different than what you're used to, honestly.
Before I send you on anything Guard-related, though, let's see how you handle yourself in the field.
