Adrian Posted April 9, 2011 Report Share Posted April 9, 2011 Adventure, in responce to the wand-adventures we spoke of some time ago. This is an attempt at a "legendary" wand (staff in this case). I'll copy Schwarzbart's way of doing it and post a part in a new post so it is read easier. (hell, I can hardly keep track of it in a word document) I am leaving the rolls up to the gods, but I think that it should be in the difficult end, as the reward is kindda neat (I think). The restless Temple Part1 Prerequisites (may be a bit high, can be slacked upon, thought neither are "hard to get skillups in) 6 Explore 7 Patrol You find a track, human boot-prints, leading into the forest by the Imperial Reserve. Now, this isn't uncommon, but over the past month you've seen this exact boot-print going in the same direction and it's been gnawing at you for a time. The tracks have become more recent and you are sure that you are gaining, however you are also getting deeper and deeper into the Imperial Reserve, something that you are not perfectly comfortable with, especially as the guards almost caught sight of you as you climbed the wall. You are about to head back when you see a shadow running towards you. It is a third year from your collage. He hangs around the common room from time to time but generally you don't see much of him. He notices you and waves his hand. “Hey!” he says, somewhat out of breath. “Its amazing! I found it! I got to tell the others!” “What did you find?” you ask, slightly taken aback. “Those rocks.” he points in the direction her came from. He is right, there are indeed a bunch of rocks. Who'd have thought. “They aren't real!” he exclaims, elated. “They hide a tunnel, that leads to a temple of some sort!” “A temple?” you ask, curiosity getting the better of you. “What?” he asks, his face suddenly void of the previous excitement. “What are you talking about?” You wonder if this is a joke, but as far as you can tell the boy really doesn't remember a thing. “You said something about a....” Something in your mind seems to snap and you simply can't recall, only that there was something with those rocks. Exit 1: You are so close – might as well try it, right? (no fail) success: You pluck up your courage and head towards the stones that the youth just pointed to. You remember that at least. “Coming?” you ask as you pass him. He looks torn for a moment but declines in the end. “Sorry, got a test tomorrow, and I... can't really remember...” he trails off. Whatever just happened may have affected him more than you. No backing down now! You head over to the stones and cautiously give them a tap. Your hand goes right through the surface. It is just an illusion. You step through the veil and you see stairs leading down under ground. No risk, no gain. You take one step and then the other. Boy it sure is dark down here! +1 Curiosity Leads to Part2 Exit 2: This is just too weird. Better head back. Success: This is just too freaky. Never start an adventure on an empty stomach and wasn't that a rock in your shoe? Why the excuses are endless and when you start heading back you notice that the third year doesn't look too well either. Neither of you speak a word on the whole way back.
