Halt dragged me to the Baron who was reading through reports. the Baron noticed Halt and me, Halt told him everything that happened, Halt asked the Baron if he could show the paper to me. The baron then said yes, I read the note, the note said "this boy Will has the potential to become a ranger". I didn't understand the note and why the Baron was so happy about at all. I had no knowledge of the rangers outside the superstitions or rumours, The Baron read my thoughts and asked Halt he could spend time with me alone. Halt proceeded and then me and the baron had a lengthy discussion about my decisions what wanted to do in the future, which I'll make it short. first he asked me if I wanted to become a farmer the answer was no. then he telling about the rangers which found interesting about how they were secretive and a group of elite soldiers that ranked above the average people. we finished then I went to Halt's house which was in Wensley village to be spend his training with him.
When I got there, Halt was just sitting on his chair and lacked his ranger's cloak. he was short and slim which amazed me, Halt's cloak concealed a lot of him. when Halt noticed and gave me his lesson which was housework he said that apprentices did this, I was irritated by his attitude and the remarks was be supposed to be 'encouragement' but I had no choice, he was my mentor and I had to obey him. he told me this will help me prepare being a ranger, I didn't understand at first but after the next lessons I had some clarification.
In one of my lessons Halt showed me the weapons that the rangers used which I was bit disappointed. they weren't like the weapons they used in Battleschool, he said the weapons were stealth based so they was mostly long ranged, but they had ones used for close combat as well. the first weapon he introduced was the longbow but since I was short he give me a recurve bow which was named after the ends that curved in the opposite direction, the recurve provided a lot of power in one shot. in case of confrontation they would a small blade and the large blade called the Saxe knife, the small blade is primarily for throwing but can be used in combat and the Saxe knife was designed for combat. the way the weapons were build made believe the weapons had use after all.
