    23 KB Artifact Quest: Part 2 Ground Man !FSvMO5RY12 02/19/10(Fri)00:42 No.8164420  

    You are a sword. You have been a sword for as long as you can remember, which is roughly three hundred years. Unfortunately for you, you've spent that most of time languishing in the hoard of a green dragon.

    But no longer.

    Just yesterday, you were liberated from your gilded prison by the human wizard Arcturus and his motley crew of adventurers: noble human paladin Percival, pious human cleric Ashley, frugal halfling rogue Merri, and foppish elf Lindelasse. Sensing the potential in the ineffectual Lindelasse, you have asked to be taken to be his new armament.

    But your intentions may not be entirely noble. Your abilities include those of freezing and domination of will. None know the full breadth of your power, least of all yourself. But your destiny is yours, and yours alone to forge. By hook or crook, you'll make your way in this world beyond the dragon's lair.

    The adventurers are returning to the riverside metropolis of Riverton, to announce their victory to the local authorities. The city is within view, but it will be a couple hours before you enter the city proper. Spirits are high in the group, and Lindelasse is playing a jaunty tune on his harp, while you ride in style at his side in a spare scabbard supplied by the paladin.

    What do?

    You find that traveling by scabbard is a peculiar sensation, and it's a bit difficult to keep focused while you are bouncing off Lindelasse's hip as he frolics, strumming on his lute.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which way you're looking at it), none of the adventurers thought to strip Peluz of her scales. The wizard, Arcturus, was only after her blood.


    "Hey, Lindelasse."

    "Yes, sword?"

    "You know, I see out of the sapphire on my pommel? And you prancing around like that is screwing with my vision. I can't exactly get motionsick or anything but... it's pissing me off."

    "Oh." Lindelassing stops frolicing, and rubs the back of his neck with his strumming hand sheepishly. "Sorry."

    Sword's a lame name. We need a better one. Since the Bard's busy thinking of a newer, more heroic name for himself, he might want to think of one for us that would be pleasing to the ear beside his in song.

    Additionally? Let's get to knowing the story of how he came to kill the dragon. She was...something like a friend of ours, even if we needed her dead. It would be nice to know more about why she died, and what her death served.

    "What is it, sword?" The wizard glances over to you idly.

    "Would it be possible for you to cast some sort of spell of flying on me, so that I would be able to move of my own will?"

    The wizard sucks his teeth for a moment or two. "The short answer, my silvered friend, is no. The long answer is 'Yes, but no." A garden-variety fly spell wouldn't allow you to fly by itself. If I had more time and resources, I might be able to add to your abilities and make you able to fly... but I'm not trying it. I simply don't know the extend of your ability. If I try to tamper with you, you might inadvertently blast me with a freezing burst, and then BOOM! goodbye, Arcturus." He chuckles, then shrugs. "Sorry, sword. Wish I could help."


    The elf is still bobbing too much for you to feel comfortable. "Alright, alright, this isn't working. First off, when we get into town, you're getting me a new scabbard. One that you can wear on your back. That way, I'll have a better view of what the fuck is going on around here."

    "Alright, I suppose I can do that."

    "And second," you keen on, "we're getting you some lessons so that you don't walk like... like... well, like such an -elf.- You need a more confident stride. Maybe we should get you lessons from a dwarf."

    Lindelasse eyes you warily, but assents. "Alright... I suppose. You -did- pretty much save our asses from that dragon. I suppose a few walking lessons won't hurt."

    You don't know. It might be worth it to find out. Who will you ask about this?

    "Uh, Arcturus?"

    The wizard glances over in your direction again. "Yes, sword?"

    "I was thinking... I'm not the only magical item in the world, by a long shot, correct?"

    "Correct." Arcturus smirks.

    "Well, then, do you think I, as a sentient being, would be able to use other magical items?"

    Arcturus ponders this for a moment, then pulls out a red gem of indeterminate type. "Awaken, Gem of Birghtness." The gem begins to glow a bright, cascading red. "Sleep, Gem of Brightness," he intones, and just as quickly as the light came, it goes. Arcturus tosses the gem over to Lindelasse, who catches it deftly. "Now you try, sword."

    "Awaken, Gem of Brightness," you keen.

    The gem says dim.

    Lindelasse tosses the gem back to Arcturus, who chuckles. "I guess that answers that question."


    You try concentrating to see if you have the ability to detect magical items...

    ...no such luck. You must not have the ability to detect magical items.

    So far as you can tell, you are a sentient silvered +? frost longsword. You also have rudimentary mind control powers, so long as the target is within five feet of you.

    After a few hours of travel, the party arrives at the gates of Riverton, "The Jewel of Rosel". It's a sprawling city built on mercantile, especially the lucrative business of adventurer outfitting. As the party approaches the gates, one of the guards standing at the gate notices your party and rushes off into the town. The others straighten up respectfully. All of the guards are wearing surcoats of quartered blue and white over scale mail, and each carries a large shield emblazoned with blue and white. Scabbards holding short swords sit on their belts. One of the guards, a portly human with mutton chops, hails your party. "Mr. Arcturus! I trust your mission has gone as planned?"

    "Sir," Arcturus smiles genuinely, "the lizarrdfolk and their leader have been dealt with. No longer will they threaten the outskirts of the city."

    The guards grin and bother the party no further. You and the rest of the party make your way into the city.

    "Once we report our success to the governess, then we may go our separate ways," Arturus intones. The others nod. Percival and Ashley look somewhat relieved, but Lindelasse appears downcast at this news.

    Is a chaos warrior chaotic evil or neutral evil? Their attacks may seem at random, but they always serve the will of their respective god(s). In this they work towards some goal, thus are not chaotic.

    Chaos isn't chaotic. Fuck.

    You keen so that only the party can hear you. "Hey, c'mon, Lindy, cheer up. What's eating you?"

    "Oh..." The elf rubs the back of his neck sheepishly. "Well, it's just that I had so much fun on this quest... but Percy has to go back to his duties with the Companions of the Silver Lance... and Ashley has to continue with her duties for Jerrain... and Arcturus has to get back to his important work with the International Guild of Mages... when it comes down to it, The only person who would be able to continue traveling with me is Merri."

    "Yeah, don't bet on it, skinny," Merri mutters loudly.

    "See?" Lindelasse frowns.


    You begin keening so that only Lindelasse can hear you. "You know, I have a way of convincing Merri to keep traveling with you... Arcturus only took the blood of Peluz- er, the green dragon. The rest of her is still worth a pretty penny. Maybe you could convince Merri to help you harvest the scales?"

    Lindelasse brightens at that prospect. "I'll keep it in mind for later," he whispers. "Thanks, sword!"

    While you have no concept of motivational posters, you do know what dragon scales look like. You concentrate on Merri, and try to send her a mental 'image' of dragon scales...

    Merri stops for a moment, then grins deviously. She follows after the party, skipping. Arcturus eyes her, nonplussed. "What has you back in a such a chipper mood all of a sudden?"

    "Oh, nothing!" the halfling says in a sing-song tone of voice.


    You keen this message to Arcturus. The wizard looks left, then right, then shakes his head shortly and spins his finger around in a clockwise motion. Perhaps he means he'll talk about it later.

    You approach the Riverton Governor's Mansion. It's an extravagant affair, marbled and expansive, a testament to Riverton's wealth. As the party approaches the doors, to of the Governess' private guards stop you at the door. One is a human man, the other an orcish woman. Apparently, in this realm, orcs are considered one of the civilized races. Go figure.

    "Adjunct Arcturus Bly of the IGM and company, I presume?" the human asks.

    "Indeed, sir," Arcturus nods. "May we?"

    "Just a moment, sir. Gorma, you wanna...?"

    "Yeah, I can inform Her Excellency," says the orc. She quietly enters the mansion, closing the door behind her.


    Merri catches your eye (pommel-sapphire, whatever) and winks at you with a smirk. She might be considering it.

    You keen so that only Lindelasse can hear you. "So, uh, Lindy."

    "Yeah, sword?" Lindelasse whispers so that only you can hear distinctly, but Arcturus eyes him whispering and shakes his head, rolling his eyes.

    "You know, I've been stuck in the hoard of a green dragon for about three hundred years... maybe more, my memory doesn't go back that far. I was just wondering... about the general geography around us. Where is 'here'?"

    "Ohhhh... well, us, right now, we're in Riverton. It's a trade city set on the crossing between two important rivers: the river Dominus flowing off to the east, and the Helmoure to the south. Most of this continent is controlled by the Empire of Rosel. You saw their legionaries as we were entering the city."

    "The guys in the blue and white?"

    "Yep. There's one other major human power on this continent, the Kingdom of Jerou to the north. To the far west lies colonial holdings of Dracony."


    "Yeah. These creatures called the dracons: not quite dragons, not quite lizard folk, but somewhere between the two, they rule it from across the western shore. They're bad news."

    "I see..."

    "The orcs mainly live to the west... not far enough to reach into the Dracony colonies, but too close for comfort. My homeland," Lindelasse says with pride," is the Aelflund Forest, far to the south by southeast."

    "And the other continents?"

    "Well, there's Edobar, to the west, where the Kingdoms of Rubica, Bubaria, and Dracony can be found. Travel around, and you reach right back to this continent. Then to the southwest is Pelonia, where the kingdoms of Al'Masad and Tulmesia can be found. To the south is..." here, Lindelasse shudders.

    "To the south is...?"

    "To the south is Khyyran Rhee."
    >> Ground Man !FSvMO5RY12 02/19/10(Fri)02:36 No.8165901

    Khyyran Rhee... suddenly, images flash in your consciousness... lingering memories of your birth, of your forging... of the fires of the forge, of the ringing of the hammer... the whispers of a thousand magi...

    And then, just as suddenly as it had come, it left. You are left feeling cold, if indeed a sword can feel cold. Well... wouldn't you know better than anyone?

    Lindelasse goes on. "Khyyran Rhee is a wasteland. It's the blighted example of what necromancy can do to the world if it's allowed to spread. Almost the entire continent is populated by the undead, ruled by five mighty lich kings. It's said that there are some who still live in Khyyran Rhee... they are bred as cattle for the undead to feed upon." He shudders. "Anyway... let's talk about something else. Huh. You'd think someone would have called for us by now, wouldn't you?"

    Lindelasse looks very eager to change the subject.

    The orcish womanopens the door and beckons the adventurers in. Meanwhile, you remain lost in thought. This vision you had... what was its purpose? Surely it was a glimpse into your past, the part you can't remember, but what did it mean? What about Khyrran Rhee ties into your forging? Perhaps you were meant as a grand weapon, intended to fight the hordes of the dead continent... or maybe one of the lich kings forged you, to carry you forth as a weapon of conquest against the forces of the living... Or maybe it's just a fluke?

    You ponder the possibilities for a while. You're quite surprised when you realize you've missed everything that happened in the Governess' mansion. Lindelasse and Merri are discussing the dragon scales, while Arcturus is discussing something with a bald, red-robed male human wizard.

    "-ything were to happen, I'd sure want you and the sword watching my back," Merri says.

    "As I said, I'll over you the better half of a 60-40 split," Linde bargains.

    "It's a done deal, then." Merry grins, then she and Lindelasse pull off a fairly complicated handshake. Arcturus bows deeply to the red-robed wizard and walks over to Lindelasse. He addresses you.

    "Sword, this is Councillor Orman Mendel with the Internation Guild of Mages. If you would be willing, we'd like to talk with you and Lindelasse about... well, you."

    We should test this out further and see how far the mind control goes. The next time we pass by a common citizen, we should mind control him to run down the street about 100 yeards as fast as he can.

    Linde draws you from the sheath with a small flourish. You're starting to get used to being flipped around. The elf offers you to the councillor, who takes you up admiringly.

    "Yes... hmm... interesting... my, my..." Mendel mutters interestedly, looking down the length of your blade. He wields you with earnest at a chair, cutting it in two with little effort and frosting over the remains. "Very interesting!" he exclaims, then mutters an incomprehensible incantation. The chair is mended and rights itself as if it had never been bisected.

    "What is the square root of one hundred, sword?" Mendel asks.

    "Ten," you reply. the red-robed wizard strokes his chin thoughtfully. He sets you on a table and casts another spell on you. Finally, Mendel frowns. "Hm... I can't discern anything through magic... almost like..." His frown disappears, replaced with excited optimism. He hands you back to Lindelasse, who sheaths you. Mendel takes Arcturus aside for a moment, and they commune privately in a corner. Mendel's excitement seems to be contagious.

    Lindelasse looks down at you inquiringly.

    Finally, Mendel and Arcturus turn back to you and Lindelasse.

    "Well, I can't tell -much- about what your sword is, but what I -can- tell you is that I have seen something like this before," Arcturus says, grinning excitedly. "The response we're getting from the swords is almost exactly that scholars get from the Silver Lance of Saint Sebastian."

    "Only a twinge different," Arcturus adds.

    "Uh... you want to explain this to the sword who's been living in a pile of gold for three centuries?" you keen irritably.

    "Oh, ah, yes. You, sword, are a magical artifact beyond mortal ken. A lost relic of a bygone age, so to speak. With your permission, we'd like to attach a IGM adjunct to you... Mr. Bly, here, actually. You three already have quite the history. Eventually, once you all become more acclimated to each other, we'd like for you to visit our Roselian headquarters in Roselius Majorus."

    "Wooow!" Linde exclaims. "A bona-fide artifact! Truly this is the beginning of a tale for the ages!"

    "What do you say, sword?" Arcturus says."Care to travel together for a while longer?"

    You try detecting undead. You feel a tingle; it might have worked. But nevertheless, you detect no undead in this room, or within 200 feet.

    Arcturus gives you a strange look. "It's a lance. It doesn't have a gender."

    "Excellent!" Mendel exclaims. "Bly, your orders are to follow the sword, no matter what."

    "Yes, sir," Arcturus says, bowing to his superior. As you leave, Mendel calls out, "I hope to see you all again in Roselius Majorus!"

    Lindelasse and Arcturus eye each other as Mendel closes the door on you. "So, then, Linde," Arcturus says, "where to, chief?"

    "Well, Merri and I were going to go descale the dragon we killed..."

    "Sounds like an excellent plan," Arcturus nods enthusiastically. "Let's just find Merri and we can get going."

    "I told her we'd meet her at the Wolf's Claw Tavern down the road. Let's go!" Lindelasse skips off. Arcturus, rolling his eyes with a smile, follows in line.

    "Oops. Sorry." Lindelasse beings walking normally as you leave the Governess' mansion.

    Arcturus says, "The Silver Lance of Saint Sebastian is holy to Isenites... it's the sword Sebastian West the Cavalier took with him into the final battle between Rosel and Marovia, centuries ago. Where General West bled on that holy day, blue roses sprang into bloom. Of course, the story of the roses is likely fabrication, but the lance itself is a bona-fide magical artifact. It's part of the Imperial regalia, and is said to be imbued with an imprint of Saint Sebastian's personality."


    "Oh, yeah!" Linde smacks his forehead. "Doyy. Completely slipped my mind. We can get that after we get Merri."

    As the three of you travel down the crowded merchant's road, you wonder to yourself just what it was you were made for... and then you stop. What does it matter, really, what you were built for? It's what you make yourself to be that matters in the end.

    Just yesterday, you were sitting in the hoard of a green dragon. Now, you are a magical artifact, setting out on what is to be the rest of your existence.

    Kinda makes you think.
