aw yee lets go
Yesterday you helped the town guard apprehend a few mercenaries that were kidnapping the townsfolk. The guard captain promised to give you a reward next time you visit their garrison. The remaining mercenaries are still hiding out in the wilderness and their previous victims are still unaccounted for. The orc threat to the north still looms on your mind. As does your overall mission: to seek out the Wish Granter.Where to first?>Merchant district>Main district>Garrison>talk to party member>talk to townsperson>write in

And you too mr Ulric, changed your mind about participating?"Ulric: "I think I'll just watch mister"Hartley: "Too bad, anyway HC, I'm glad you're here I've got two fights that need a second player and I think you'll do the trick for either of them. Not both mind you, the crowd will get bored if we overuse a fighter. Your first option is to fight Dr Deathgrimburg, he's a bit tougher than the Black Beetle but I'm sure you can handle him, 150 talons to the winner 38 talons to the loser. Your second option is to fight one of the champions, he's called "The Lost One" and he's a real experienced fighter, we don't think you can take him but we need someone to lose to him to build up hype for his real fight later, 100 talons to the winner and 25 to the loser.">ask Alina/Salaman if they would like to fight in the arena>"What happens if I beat The Lost One?">"I'll fight the doctor">"I'll fight The Lost One">"nevermind I've got something else I need to do today">write in

The ruthless Hammer Carnage is back and he wants another victim to smash in the arena! The black beetle was just an appetiser for this mad man and now he's ready to crush. But here comes his opponent! He's roused himself from his dark laboratory to collect more bodyparts for his evil experiments and he's set his sights on the mad berserker. Ladies and gentlemen I give you: the nefarious Dr Deathgrimburg"Dr Deathgrimburg: "Go ahead and smash my bones Hammer Carnage.

The two devastating blows have clearly shaken him but he continues to fight, he's a pretty tough doctor.He power attacks you but you avoid the strike.You power attack him for 29 damage. He stumbles alittle, it looks like he's on his last legs.He slices your left arm scoring a critical hit! you take 10 damage, your left arm has been crippled.(Remaining Actions cancelled. Crippled Limb)Without use of your left arm, your 2 handed hammer will be extremely innaccurate. On the other hand the Doctor looks like he'll go down if you so much as sneeze on him.>You are now in combat>You have 27/44 hp>Attack (35%)>Power Attack (30%)>Flurry (30%)>Jab (50%)>Defend>Called Shot >Inventory>Spell>write in

>>2266607>>2266618>>2266623Using your remaining arm you quickly jab him with the hammer. He clearly wasn't expecting the immediate counter attack as he is critically hit for 32 damage and knocked down. He stops moving and some staff members remove his unconcious body."And the winner is HAMMER CARNAGE, what a beatdown!">You gain 500 XP>You now have 6975Hartley: "Great work out there HC, looks like the doc got a lucky hit on you but I'm sure the tree will have it fully healed by tomorrow.

>>2266676>Library Dolomite, you had set the pastebin to private unstead of unlisted.
>>2266684right I'll fix that now
Is this cyanide and happiness?
>>2266739The art style is derived from experimenting around with tg "draw your party" stuff after I got a design for a human that I liked I used a colour picker on a cyanide and happiness comic to get the main characters skin tone and cyan shirt colour. The main character was made bald so he'd be easier and quicker to draw.
>>2266683>>2266684The public library has a decent sized collection of tomes. The availability of books and the general education level in Aflor is surprisingly high.When you arrive Salaman quickly makes himself at home examining the books.You can borrow 3 books at a time.

>>2266763>>2266764>>2266825>HistoryYou pick up a general history book. It's mostly stuff you already know. As an abjurer who formerly served in Uthain's royal palace you more learned than the average man.Historians separate history into 3 epochs based on the dominant species at the time: The Dragon Age, the Orc Age and the Human Age (otherwise known as the iron age)There is no recorded history from the Dragon age, since dragons have excellent memories and thought they would never die. Dragons eventually went into decline due to infighting. They still exist today but their population is said to be still in a slow decline. After the dragon age ended, monster races particularly Orc started to rise to power due to their population and strength.Humans gradually developed technology, magical aptitude and military tactics. Eventually humans discovered a way to strengthen iron into a form much more powerful than bronze. After the discovery of steel humans quickly became the most powerful race in existence and the age of humans began. Since then the difference in power has gotten wider as humans develop their scientific, cultural and magical technologies.Pick a different subject>Fiction>Monsters>Nations>Magic>Religion>write inContinue studying history>History of Aflor>Dragon Age>Orc Age>Human Age>History of (write in)>leave>write in

(Sorry that update took so long)I'm going to call it quits for now, thanks for playing. Seeker Quest will continue in a week
Damn it.I missed Seeker Quest.Thanks for running Dolomite.>>2266833Hilarious filename and tracing aside, I wanted to add that this image actually does a really good job of symbolizing the three ages in a minimalist, intuitive, and aesthetic way.In other words, snazzy work.
>>2266974thanks anon, I really liked how that image turned out as well. Probably one of my favourites along side the full view of Oakheart and the slime caves title image
I missed it again
>>2266942>>MonstersIs our hand still detached? Can we even fight today?
>>2272746Your arm wasn't severed, the art style just uses a broken line to represent crippled limbs.It can be restored by the healing skill or by being nearby Oakheart's giant tree for a several hours.(When the party fought the mud golem and crippled its limbs I described/drew them as severed because I didn't think it would ever regain use of those limbs anyway)
>>2272841Ohprobably >monstersand then >leave unless everyone else wants to read more booksGuess we'll wait it out and then do the thing
Apologies, going to have to cancel this weeks session. Seeker quest will continue next week (for real this time)
