Amanda 'The Iron Maiden' Flintsteel Entry
The matron that defends the Steel Citadel! It's 'The Iron Maiden'!
Also know as Amanda Flintsteel, she is the head of the city guard. Her nickname came from the fact that she rarely makes an appearance without her unique plate armor. But how can Amanda handle the important position managing a city guard while being a member of the Adventurer's guild? We had to ask, and here's her answer:
"I'll be blunt. It ain't easy. To be an adventurer is to go over the risks. Go after sacrifice. Since whatever goal is set in front of you. While the city guard is the opposite. It's about being safe, methodical, even. Help those around you by creating a space where rules can be followed in peace. Instead of trying to join these opposites, I look where they meet and that is on the aspect of helping others. If journeying through the Wailing Mountains is the only way we can find the Wand of Destruction and break it for good, then I'll have to take that risk. What I am trying to say here is that for the good of all, I cannot let my guard duty and adventurer call exist in opposition. They are both part of me, even if they are different parts of me."
Despite being blunt and direct, Amanda seems conflicted, even mysterious! No wonder she is so beloved. A tragic yet heroic figure that looms around the Steel Citadel! Visit her when you have the chance.
The book is filled with other equally colorful adventurer entries.
