Your name is Mildred and you are a witch; a full blooded broom flying, potion making, spell casting witch. Well sort of, you would be one if your master hadn't gone and ditched you, so technically you’re just an apprentice witch for the moment and fairly young as well, Sixteen years-old.In a day and age where the control of the Imperial church goes unchecked being in the witch craft business is risky work, but that doesn’t bother you much. This is what you would like to think if it weren’t for your awful luck. Currently you are on the run after escape the clutches of your small town’s church group and barely avoiding being burned at the stake. After escaping your cell you were able to hitch a ride on a cargo ship and no one was the wiser. Now the ship has just dock in a large port city called Byhollow, this is where most of the trade action happens in your area so it’s a fairly large city. You remember coming here years ago with your master to collect ingredients for spells but that was ages ago so your memory is kinda fuzzy.Stepping of the ship you breathe the fresh air in deeply, awww sweet non-jail smelling air. You turn and call to the Caption saying thanks. He raises his arm and yells “Any time Lass, Good luck to you”. Sigh, you’re gonna need it you think to yourself. Adjusting your shackle you set out into the city.>Where do you go>Closest Tavern>Walk around randomly>Ask someone for dircetionsCurrent Inventory:1 ornate dagger2 potions of healing3 scrolls of fireball1 scroll of thunderstorm1 scroll of shapeshift1 scroll of waterbreath30 silver coins
>>31063073What are we wearing? Are we dressed witchily?
>>31063073>Closest Tavernalso>Adjusting your shacklewhat is our shackle?
>>31063149No, you changed into more unsuspecting clothes on the boat, although the clothes were meant for a man so they're a little big
>>31063184All of your inventory except your money which is in your coin purse
>>31063191Right then, off to the tavern.
>>31063234>>31063184Even though you slept on the ship you're still pretty worn out from your escape and you haven't eaten away thing since yesterday, so you go off in search of the closest tavern. After a little bit of search you come across a building named the "Smelly Pig", lovely but it'll have to done. Opening the door you are immediately hit with the sounds and smells from in, since it's mid day it seems that the tavern is jam packed, there doesn't seem to be any place other than a small table in the corner with a girl around your age sitting at it. The girl has brown hair that is tied into long braids. She is currently absorbed in the book she's reading and not paying attention to anything around her.>Sit with the girl>Stand somewhere else>Other
>>31063396>Sit with the girl
>>31063396>Sit with the girlWe need friends. And a house.
>>31063473>>31063458Walking pass the dozens of customers crowding around their tables you head towards the girl. Apon reaching the girl she still hasn't noticed your presence, speaking over the noise of the crowd you ask her if you can sit down.Looking up from her book she replys with a stamper "Sur..Sure I don't mind"Sitting down you call over a barmaid and order the cheapest thing you can get. When she brings the food you happily dig in, glag to have something filling your belly. After finishing you relax in your chair a little and look around, the girl has gone back to reading her book.>Talk to the girl>remain in silence
>>31063396>Sit with the girlWe need info on this place
>>31063625>Talk to the girlTime to make a friend
>>31063625talk to her. ask what she's reading
>>31063625>See what book she's reading.Could be a conversation-starter!
shortest quest ever huh?
>>31063625Looking over to the girl say "Hi, how are you"to which you get no response. Waveing your hand in front of her you try again "Hellooooooooo". The girl jerks back a little, "Oh i'm sorry I didn't mean to ignore you, it's just that this book is really interesting, my name is Tamzen Jenny, what's your's?'"Oh my names Mildred"Looking at you funny Tamzen says "Mildred?"Sighing you shrug "My dad choose it" Man you really wish he wasn't drunk when you were born"So anyway what's that book you're reading? Is it that interesting?"A smile spreads across her face and you swear you see a twinkle in eye "Oh yes it's all about the natural around us and how we interact with the things around us, like right here in this passage..." like something deep within her was tapped she continues on and on about how the littlest things affect us in big way. You hold smile trying to withstand this barrage of information, not even your master was able to bombard like this "and in the end it all loops right back to us, interesting right?"Before you can awnser a large bang comes from the door way of the building, standing there is four men dressed in plate armour and carrying weapons , the middle one standing at lease six and a half feet. Your eyes narrow, paladins, thugs of the chruch meant to keep the peasents in line and fearful. Pushing past the crowd the group reaches the bar, the tallest one looks down at a man sitting on chair and says "Your in my seat". Picking the poor man up by his shirt the Paladin tosses him a few feet to the left, everyone else around immanently gets out of the way.They seem to enjoy messing around with everyone in the bar until one of them finally reaches your table. "Hmmm whats this?" says one of the smaller ones as he grabs the book out of Tamzen's hand "Ha a book? Women shouldn't be reading" Tamzen is teriffied but knows not to try and fight back.>Talk the man down>Punch him and run>other

>>3106401625 minutes between updates is pretty normal guy
>>31064039>Talk the man down (66)Seeing the man taunt Tamzen makes your blood boil but you know better than to escalate the situation. "Now now" you say "what would a mighty Paladin want with a silly girl with a book?"The Paladin looks at you with slight anger "Nothing weanch, I just think that a girl should use her time more wisely like with children or cooking" Typical"But look at her, she's young, let her have her fun for now"The Paladin look like he's about to say something back until you hear a loud voice from across the room, coming from the tallest Paladin "GASTON, REMEMBER WHY WE"RE HERE"A look of fear comes across his face as he tosses the book back to Tamzen and runs back to his leader. "ATTENTION EVERYONE, LOCAL NEWS HAS REPORTED THAT A WITCH HAS ESCAPED FROM A NEAR BY TOWN, BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR SUSPICIOUS WOMAN" with that the gang gets up and leaves. Darn, you were hoping you could have gotten farther but news spread.Tamzen looks a little rattled but she's ok. "Thank you for that but.. but I think I should go."Tamzen packs up and heads for the door.>Stay where you are>Follow her >other
>>31064357>Follow herShe's going to be our friendAlso, does anyone Paladin like Gaston?
>>31064143so now I have "hey ho, blow the man down" stuck in my head
>>31064357>Follow herI'm sure nothing interesting will come of this!
>>31064357She's a witch isn't she. We're gonna be witch lesbians together, aren't we?
>>31064475That would be fucking magical
>>31064357Running out of the door you catch up to Tamzen before she makes it down the street. "Hey where're you going?"Stammering back she says. "N...no where just back to my house""Your house huh? Mind if I join you, I don't think it's a ok for a little lady to be wandering around by herself with thugs like that running around"Tamzen gives you a look "But you're about as old as I am""Doesn't matter, so how about it"She shrugs "I guess it couldn't hurt"After walking a little you make it to Tamzen's house and to your surprise it turns out to be more of a shop than a house, inside there is a great variety of plants and other ingredients for spells."So you're a magic user?""Ummm well actually I'm a Alchemist, there's a differnece""Ok then""ummm do you have a place to sleep or are you staying somewhere else?""Well right now you could say I'm homeless""Oh well you're free to stay in one of my guest houses for a little bit, it's the lease I could do" With that Tamzen goes behind the counter and into a back room.>Go with Tamzen>Check out your new room>Go somewhere else
>>31064595Lets check out out room
>>31064595check out the waresMaybe we can spot some things we might needThen check out the room
>>31064643Alright. I can support this. We're not stealing anything though.Also, how expansive are our magic powers?
>>31064705of course we're not stealing; we're just looking
>>31064595Looking around the shop a little you see no obvious magical ingredients although a few of them could be used in low-level potionsm, maybe we should ask Tamzen about that later. Heading upstairs you find a small guest room similar to the one on the ship, except this one isn't moveing. Good you could use a rest. Dropping your shackle off you sit on the bed.>Sleep for right now>Talk to Tamzen>Go look around the place more>other
>>31064595>Go with Tamzencontinue to complement her shop as you walk to the back then before you enter ask if you can go back there also thank her for letting you stay with her.
>>31064767>Talk to TamzenLet's thank our new friend for the lodgings!
>>31064767>Talk to TamzenWe must be properly appreciative; she just met us and she's letting us stay
>>31064767>Talk to Tamzencontinue to complement her shop as you walk to the back room entrance then before you enter ask if you can go back there, also thank her for letting you stay with her.
>>31064795Agreed. Thanks for the thanks lord.
>>31064767Kicking off the bed and landing on your feet you head downstairs to Tamzen. When you reach the counter you hear Tamzen shuffling around in the back"Hello" you call outFrom the back you hear a muffled voice "Oh hi Mildred, do you like the room?""Oh ya, it's much better than I'm use to so thank you""No problem, it's the lease I can do for you"You here a knock on the door an dTamzen comes out of the back room with look of confusion on her face "That's strange, I don't usually get customers this time of day". With that Tamzen heads over to the door and opens it. Stand there is a small man standing between two guards. The small man adjusts his glasses and looks at a list "Is this Tamzen Jenny's resistance?"With a stammper Tamzen replys. "Umm yes, what is it?"The small man grins a little "Good, well miss Jenny you are here by accused of dealing with witch craft and wizardry, grab her". The two men reach other and grab Tamzen and start pulling her out the door while she screams "I'M AN ALCHEMIST, NOT A WITCH, THERE"S A DIFFERENCE"With you standing there what do you do?>Stop the guards>Follow them from a far>Run away
>>31065038She's our friend(ish) we've gotta stop them.
>>31065038Haha I knew it. Time to spring an ally from jail before she gets burnt.>Follow them from a far
>>31065038>>Follow them from a farhelp her if we can if we can't come back and rob the place blind
>>31065038Follow them. Also, what exactly does our shapeshifter scroll entail, and what is the casting time of such a thing?
>>31065173Shapeshifting allows you to alter your features to that of another person. Also all scrolls take a minute to cast unless they're insta cast scrolls like fireball
>>31064595>"Oh well you're free to stay in one of my guest houses for a little bit, it's the lease I could do"Heh.
>>31065038>Follow themRushing upstairs you grab your shackle and hurry out of the door. You follow the guards from a distance but this seems surprisingly easy as a large crowd gathers around Tamzen. The citizens shout curses and harmful words towards her, some even toss rocks. This is uncomfortably similar to what happened to you. At the end of the trip they reach the jail house and Tamzen is carried inside, the crowd starts to dispurse while other hang around to talk about their new catch.What do>Go through guns blazing>Sneak in>Leave her to rotRoll d100 for success, best of thre

>>31065384Dam that's lucky
>>31065354>Sneak in (100!) CRITICAL SUCCESSDucking into a near by ally way you pull out the scroll of shapeshifting. After pouring some magic into and chanting a little the characters on it lightup. Before you know it, you've transformed into... GUSTAN. That Paladin should do, turning around you head into the the jailhouse. Once inside you get a few "Hey Guston" but no one really takes notice of your presence, you blend in perfectly. Reaching the cell with Tamzen in it you tell the guard standing infront of it that you're here to take over his shift "Sweet, that's Gustan, I'm going to get some doughnuts". With that he hurries off, turning around you see Tamzen's terrified face as she recognises you "Oh, not you" she says with a whimper.You look around quickly and tell her "Don't worry, it's me, Mildred"She blinks with surprise "Mildred, but.... how?">No time to explain>I'm a witch>It's a surprise
>>31065571No time to explain.I feel like "I'm a witch" may be a bit of a shocker right off.
>>31065571>No time to explainWe can tell her later.
>>31065571>No time to explain
>>31065571"No time to explain but I'm busting you out of here"Grabbing the keys on the wall you unlock the cells door and let Tamzen out "Ok here's the game plan....">Go out the front while hiding Tamzen>Try to sneak out the back>Other
>>31065571>No time to explainIf any of the guards ask say that anyone can tell that she is no witch only a lowly alchemist that helps the church find real witches and they can never speak of this again
Hey quick question: We just burned a scroll.What spells can we cast without scrolls and how would we learn spells?
>>31065730Sneak out the back.
>>31065757Umm spells we can cast are minor things like charming someone, low level combat skills, also small capabilities to influence the environment like creating water out of air. You can learn new spells by fining or buying spell books, but they would be hard to come by see as magic is kinda hated around here
>>31065730>Try to sneak out the backI don't think front is a good idea.
>>31065730>Sneak out the backHurrying Tamzen you rush towards the back entrance. As you rush past the last bend you come face to face with the small man that you show take Tamzen, his gaze narrows "and where do you think you're taking this witch?">Bluff (Roll d100, best of three)>Kill him(Roll d100, best of three)>RUN!
Rolled 84>>31066053>Bluff (Roll d100, best of three)We can do it!
>>31066108Nice, I was beginning to worry
>>31066128We got this shit man.
>>31066108>Bluff (84)"Ummm well you see sir I was just escorting this witch to the bathroom"He pauses for a second. "Why are you alone, where are the other guards?""Well you see the other guards went to the bathroom as well, so I was planning on meeting up with them there, don't worry, even with her magic no ones as strong as Guston" You lift your arm and flex a little bit."Hmmm ok whatever, just prep her for the burning tomorrow, with out her the people might get restless that there isn't any witches to burn."With that he walks away leaving you two alone, without a moment to waste you both rush out the backentrance."I need to go my shop right now" Tamzen says with a pointing gesture "Also, you need to explain yourself">Go to the shop>Leave the city>Other
>>31066310To the shop!And I don't know what iedopar is, but captcha says to bring it.
>>31066310>Go to the shopBut carefully, make sure they don't have people posted there before entering.
>>31066310To the shop, explain along the way that we know a little magic, tell her we're fleeing down the coast together and she needs to bring her valuables/essentials.
>>31066310>To the shopYou think to yourself that you should still have sometime before anyone finds out that you're gone. "Ok fine but only a few minutes, we done to get caught". With that you both hurry alone the street. Still looking like Gustan the people in town avoid you out of fear, this Paladin gig must be pretty good.Along the way Tamzen turns to you and says. "Now would you like to tell me way you're a guy"You look around a little to make sure no ones listen "To tell you the truth I know a little bit of magic and I thought I would help you"Tamzen looks a little shocked. "You're a witch?""Well just an apprentice"Tamzen thinks for a second "Well it seems both of us are in a sticky situation but lets go right now"Hurrying you reach the shop and Tamzen imminently starts filling her bag with supplies and money, also grabs a few weird looking bottles. "Ok I'm good now where to?">Front gate>Back gate>Other
>>31066648>otherSewers worked last time. Look for a drainage passage under the town walls

>>31066648>Back gateLet's scout it at least.
>>31066648If it's a three way tie then I'm going to need you guys to roll to see what happens, highest d100 wins

Rolled 57>>31066966Rolling for back gate.
>>31067123Not wanting to test your luck at the front gate you Tamzen run for the back gate of the city, once you make it there you notice a few guards standing around but none of them give you away notice. You can see some horse tied down to a post and you also see the rider of a cart hop down and walk off>Take horses>Take the Cart>Walk it
>>31067277>Take the CartIt won't be as fast as the horse but the cart could have some supplies in it, a place to rest while on the move and if need be we could sell it and keep the horse
>>31067277>take the cartmore room for supplies, one of us can sleep on the journey so we can move non-stop as long as the horse is ok.
>>31067277>Take the CartSure, sounds comfy.
>>31067277>CartSeeing your window of opportunity the two of you rush over to the cart and climb on, once on Tamzen covers up a little to hide her face, before you can get a move on a gaurd walks over to you waving. "Hey Gustan, how you doing?""Ummm good how about you?""I'm ok, I'm ok. Hey did you hear? That girl we saw this morning was convicted of witchcraft. You always had a good eye for that stuff.""ummmm ya""Hey by the way who's the chick""Oh umm no one"Before you can say anything else you hear a ringing in the distance, the warning bell. Both you and the guard look towards it and then back at each other, before he can pull his sword out you kick him in the chest knocking him to the ground. THE CHASE IS ON.>Try to lose them>Try to out run them>other
>>31067596Try to lose them. We've got a cart on us, and they're on horseback. Well be much slower.
>>31067596>Try to lose themWe can't really out-run shit.
>>31063073>Your name is Mildred and you are a witchThis is going to end well.
>>31067596> try to lose themAs you speed off the guard that you kicked gets up and yells an alarm, several guards drop what they are doing and rush to their horses. Even though you had the head start they soon catch up to you closing in but that doesn't mean they're gonna get you. You turn and weave throwing your weight around, one of the guards get to close and ends up being smacked flying, the others increase their distance but keep on you. As you turn the conner another guard ends up falling as he trys to follow, this takes out one of his commards behind him. This leaves only five of them left, at this point they return fire with crossbows. You hear arrows wiss past your head and Tamzen scream as one imbeds itself into the wood right beside her.>Roll d100 (Best of three)
>>31067596>Try to lose themCan we use a scroll to block the gate? Fireball maybe?
>>31067933hahaha that's a good omen
Rolled 24Alea iacta est.
>>31067933Well it was bound to happen.
>>31067947>45As you speed along the road your pursuers show no sighs of stopping and continue you fire at you while shouting curses. One arrow hits your wheel making it wobble slightly and causing it to make a weird sound. You try to slam into them as they get closer but to no avail, they must be getting wise to your tactics.Roll d100 (Best of three)

>>31068155oh i coulden't tell
>>31068128>44As you continue to try and shake them they don't seem to want to give up, goddamn dogs of the church; don't they know when to quit? After you take some more fire you notice a second band of guards merge with the first. Their numbers have tripled making it 15 now, typical. They seem to be growing closer still cautious of your ability to crush them.
>>31068248Roll d100 (best of three)
>>31068272Can we use a fireball scroll?
>>31068285you try but with out a good roll it would be a waste

>>31068349If you find a seller you could buy more but that would be kinda hard, it was already almost impossible to get them when you had sources but now you're on the run
>>31068400Rolls should be 14-75-94.
>>31068338>94 TIME FOR THE RULE OF COOLSpeeding along one of the guards gets brave and jumps onto the cart. He's unstable at first but then gets his footing.Looking over you yell. "TAMZAN TAKE CARE OF THAT"As he crawls closer Tamzan picks up a pot smacks him over the head with it sending him off while looking terrified. Seeing this one of the guards men yell out. "YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT YOU FUCKING WITCH". Hearing this the look of horror is drained from her face and replaced with a look of anger that could scare a mountain troll. Reaching into her she pulls out of the weird bottles you saw her take while at the shop. "I'M AN ALCHEMIST, NOT A WITCH, THERE"S A DIFFERENCE". With that she tosses the bottle at the crowd of gaurds, as soon as it touches the ground green fire spreads all over the road, causing the guard's horses to buck and throw some of them into the fire. You can hear their screams as you drive away from the mess.Looking at Tamzen wide eyed you ask. "Why didn't you do that in the first place"She shrugs "Didn't think of it"Soon you can't see anymore horses chasing you, sighing you relax a little bit and slow your cart.I think that's a good point to cut out until next time
