    41 KB Amazing Catfolk Adventure I am not a clever man 05/27/11(Fri)11:52 No.15070788  
    You are Reena, the ferocious catfolk fighter of a small adventure party consisting of the Hero, Royce, the Elven Mage, Arinith, and the Dwarven soldier, Goluge. Your agility, speed, and strength are invaluable assets to the party as well as your sharp senses and stealth. You are secretly in love with the party leader, Royce, and will do anything to win his affection. However, her quick temper and inexperience in civilized society are making things more difficult than expected.

    Royce has asked you to scout ahead of the party through the forest on their path to the dwarven fortress of Grindstone.

    Off the beaten path, you discover a small camp of four goblins nestled beneath a large oak. The goblins are currently congregating around a small fire where a pig is slowly spit roasting over coals. Neither of them appear to have their weapons handy. You can hear the goblins conversing amongst themselves.

    (In their goblin tongue)
    " Yes, he is a sage who has abandoned violence towards living beings, be they moving or stationary,
    and who neither slays nor causes others to slay."
    "-father encouraged him. That beautiful state wherein the mind recognizes itself for what it is,
    wherein all activity is stilled except that of awareness alone, and even then it is an awareness without an object— for you see, Gurm, this is the heart of the experience..."

    Their mouth noises annoy you. What will you do?

    Threat assessment: None.

    Analysis: Not worth reporting. Even blundering into an ambush they would be no threat to the party. Make note of their location in scout-sign to notify party so they don't blunder into an ambush, continue scouting. Try to regroup with party before they reach this point.

    Besides, Royce might want to kill them, as well! It could be a fun bonding moment. And it would be horrible if our scouting just had us killing some meaningless goblins not to far ahead of the party. We need to scout!

    You watch the goblins completely undetected. They continue to go on long in their strange, mutterings, seemingly completely benign.

    The urge to snap necks is OVERWHELMING, but you mange to resist reducing their camp to shreds. After a thorough examination of the area, you determine there are not traps or ambushes in waiting.

    You return and tenatively deliever the news to ROYCE regarding your discovery.

    At first, he looks at you bewildered. Then he begins to laugh. You feel your face hot with embarrassment until he says to you:

    "Big bad Reena growing a heart, huh?"

    He pats your shoulder with a grin.

    After finishing business at Grindstone fortress, you and the party journey to the town of Lum in search of clues on your track of the kidnapped princess from Bluecoast. On your way, you encounter a group of thugs who are pressing for tribute in order to cross the bridge over the Janbourne river. When Royce calmly refuses to pay the toll, the gang leader replies that he can pay with the cat bitch. The bandit then turns to give you a lewd smirk.


    Your vision turns red. Part of you wants to cave this scum's head in with your fist. The other wants to give Royce a chance to defend your honor. But a warrior should be strong and self reliant...!

    If he does it well enough, you might even let Royce convince you to let him live.

    "I'll make you eat those words!"

    Your civility has dropped 20%

    With lightning-fast reflexes, you surge forward and jump kick the bandit square in the chest. You manage to catch a glimpse of his eyes protruding slightly from the sockets as he flies back.

    He bounces.

    He falls off the bridge into the surging waters below. The bandits stare at you in disbelief. Royce stands there dumbstruck. The elf rolls her eyes at you.

    After a moment of silence, however, the dwarf laughs and gives you a thumbs up.

    Dwarven respect increased 5%. The bandits drop their weapons and slowly disperse like dying roaches. Royce walks to you and frowns.

    "In the future, Reena, you'll withhold your actions until I am able to explore further options..."

    Then he leans in close and whispers:

    "That was great..!"

    Spend a lot of time in idle chatter with him, making jokes and such. Use improved dwarven friendship to figure out what you should have done in the situation. Should you have tried to take over his bandit group and make them your servants? Is that civ-all-iced?

    You have some downtime before the next adventure. The party is currently staying in the city of Parn, a bustling place of trade and commerce. There are many merchants selling various wares in the sprawling downtown market place. You have a decent purse of gold for your personal spending and have been looking forward to buying a better weapon. However, there are some rather nice clothes for sail. Strange, fragile items of cotton and silk that you have seldom ever worn. But where to start and what to wear? There are thin white gowns for summer days, and alluring robes of silk, and other confusing, fragile articles of clothing.

    The voices inside your head point you to the direction of a item of armor altogether new to you. It is a wonder how much protection can be had in armor which exposes so much of the wearer...

    Heads turn left and right as you proudly display the shimmering, form-fitting ounce of metal links. It quite freely allows you to flaunt the gifts the Gods gave you. Royce and the elven mage are walking away from the sorcery shop when you encounter them. Royce is escorting the mage by the arm.

    He pauses, his brows raised as his eyes scan you over. He seems slightly uncomfortable but definitely intriqued.

    "That is...some armor you got there, Reena!"

    The elf frowns with disapproval.

    "Well, you know these tribals, Royce. They just let it all hang out <insert jabbing tittering laughter here>"

    You cover yourself slightly, feeling suddenly very self-conscious. The elf pulls Royce away to shop for more 'provisions'.

    As Royce is pulled away, he bids you rushed farewell...and turns back again to give you another eye-over.


    Affection did not substantially increase, though other things did....

    They say the fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach. This isn't what practical Sharpclaw teachings tell you about human anatomy, but so be it. You have the preparation time of 6 hours before Royce returns from his talk with the elders from the nearby village. The food in reserve is as follows:

    Fresh vegetables including potatoes, carrots, and various sprouts native to the region
    A fresh loaf of bread
    A dozen eggs.
    A pheasant that was killed earlier today.

    Unfortunately, you don't have a pile of red meat or fish. There are plenty of game in the surrounding forest, but also monsters. The dwarf is currently hung over from the previous night and cannot be bothered to help unless there is an emergency.

    Not a whole lotta spices or savory things to choose from. Hunting game would only result in large haunches of nourishing but bland and greasy meat. Good for campaigners, no doubt, but maybe not so much for a super-special dinner.

    Let us see if we can cook as well as we can cat.

    For what it's worth, the outcome would have been very good. An excellent choice, sir.

    The Greatfang clan is one of the more ancient catfolk races of this world. Since most of the world's regional conflicts are nearly all resolved, this warring clan has become rather decentralized and some of its recognition is slowly dying out in more modernized cultures.

    TL;DR Less catfolk warriors in peacetime.

    Alright, we can do this. A nice mix of pheasant and vegetables will be good for the main course.

    Eggs, lard, sugar, and flour? We've got most of the ingredients for a cake going here. We're going to need some milk. And perhaps soem vanilla if it's native to the region.

    We're used to being on our own, so some roast pheasant with onions and carrots, maybe a little potato as well. Roasting should be fairly easy to manage. Nothing too fancy, but try to get a good mixe of flavors going on. Pheasants are small, lean birds, so that won't take too long, leaving lots of time to attempt cake.

    Please let us be good at baking.

    Apologies, players. We will have to resume next time. We thank you for playing and hope to bring you the finishing quests soon.

    Progress is nearly complete. You provided some excellent material. Sorry for not being so quick a typist and for an abrupt end.

    Wait wait, hold everything.

    This "bake him a cake" idea is very nice and all, but constantly trying to win his affection through direct methods is going to be subject to the law of Diminishing Returns.

    The fact is, that elf has him by the arm which means she already has a major head start on us for straight affection.

    If there's anything that catfolk lore has taught us, it's that the best fighters fight dirty.

    We've already enflamed his Royce' desire in our general direction. Now we just need to enflame something else, and the one thing people always want most is what they can't have.

    I propose abanoning the cake quest and strike out into new territory.

    Quest five. Make Royce Jealous.

    And give him the chance to abandon us? He already didn't like us when the quest started, remember. If it looked like he could just have a working relationship, he would, and then we'd have to kill him for leaving us.

    did someone really trace over a 15 year old breath of fire image and then smear their signature all over it?

    As long as they think they can get away with it, there's no limit to what they'll trace.

    Could you post the original, perchance? Seems like one I don't have yet.

    Maybe? I assumed it was an on model imitation. I'd need to see a side by side comparison.
