Story involvements[edit]

Personal story[edit]


Hard to imagine this farm was the site of a bloody battle two hundred years ago. We still find bones and bits of weaponry when we dig for crops each year.
Talk more option tango.png Find anything interesting?
Dug up a blackened charr skull. That was more unsettling than anything. A friend of mine found a rusty shield. Not worth anything. Just a bit of history, I suppose.
Talk more option tango.png So, what do you do out here, when you're not digging up relics?
Not much. Just run the Ebon Vanguard. Wade Samuelsson, captain of the Ebon Vanguard, at your service.
Talk more option tango.png You seem casual for a military officer.
I wasn't born to be a warrior. I'm just a farmer. I joined the Vanguard to make sure our farmlands would be safe. Turned out I had a knack for giving orders. Before I know it, I'm the captain.
Talk more option tango.png What will you do now after the treaty gets signed.
If the treaty gets signed. Farming has taught me that nothing's certain until harvest. But if it happens, I'll gladly hang up my sword. Tired of killing. I just want to make something grow again.
Talk end option tango.png Hopefully you'll get your wish. Take care.

Honor the past.
May the Gods protect you.

  • Both he and two guards stationed at the Desert Gate refer to him as "Captain Samuelsson," whereas the character introduces himself in the personal story as "Commander Samuelsson."
  • During the Get the animals back in their pens event he runs out of the south fields and enters the Fallen Angels stronghold.
  • Legend says that if one of the twin swords Magdaer and Sohothin is returned to Ascalon by the rightful heir of the throne, the ghosts will finally be laid to rest. If his claims are true, Commander Samuelsson may be a possible candidate to fulfill this prophecy.
