Thane's Ring (10)
First, it was an influx of peasants. Next, cramped study quarters. Then a lack of funds, diverted to chase some fantasy fleet around the ocean.

Now, a change of name.  

This is the final straw.  We're out of here.

The Accountant of the Four Winds was doing his thrilling job, making sure that the amounts logged in the ledgers actually matched up with reality. As he saw the grain pile, he asked the farmers why they grew more grain than the local town would buy.

"Ah, you see we hear that war stalks the land, and that wizards can summon the pestilence of the black wind, and death is everywhere! Given that, we're not taking any chances with famine - we've got enough to feed the faction for a couple of months if everything else goes to the wall!"

Alathiel gazed at her reflection in the mirror one final time.  She was, in even her own opinion, a striking picture.  Now a fully-accredited apprentice, her journeyman's practice of the manipulation of the ether was sufficient to wield the full panoply of arcane technologies.  But today she would finally receive both her first mission, and the equipment to carry it out.

At last she stood before the Mage, his keen eyes seeming to pierce straight through her.  

"Apprentice Alathiel.  First mission?"

"Yes, magus," her voice trembled.

"Indeed.  Take this crystal, and apport yourself to the gate in this envelope.  Collect there a musical stave, and return."  His eyes were fierce now, and not kind.

"A musical stave.  Not fire.  Not healing.  But a musical stave." The quaver had gone, replaced with a dry acerbity as the new Initiate's lip curled.  

"As I said.  Go, and return not until you have retrieved it," intoned the mage with a sonorous boom and languid wave.

"Would you like me to pick up a left-handed screwdriver while I'm there? Striped paint?  How about a long weight?" Alathiel almost snarled at him.

The mage quirked an eyebrow in surprise, then shrugged. "Well, that's the first mission accomplished then.  Second envelope on the table is your actual destination, and the cargo is the bag by the door.  Don't lose them, they are fantastically rare and difficult to make, and lives depend on their urgent delivery." 

He clenched a fist to his shoulder in salute.  "Welcome, Apprentice Alathiel, and good luck."
