>this is a my first quest...so bare with me here...it's gonna take awhile to get good. if you got any suggestions, tell at the end of the session or in brackets. thanks for anyone who sticks around.

You’ve just recently won the lottery today by a small margin. You were beginning to think this whole thing was rigged from the get go. fortunately, the lottery announcement just a had mistype at the last moment.

To celebrate, you thought about going on vacation with friends would nice. Working at stressful office job has been mentally draining you for weeks. Quickly, you head for the door and unlock it. You walk onto the sidewalk and dig into you jean pockets for a key.

You slip. The keys fall out your hands before landing onto the road. You dash into the middle of the street to get it. Before you know it…SLAM. A car speeds over you, knocking you down into the pavement.

The insides of your head shatter into pieces as blood drips into a deep puddle of scarlet. Life flashes before your eyes until everything goes dark.

suddenly, the dark begins to shift away as a blazing light appears before you. it stands in the horizon, serving as warmth in this cold bleak void.

“This is not your time yet. Once your days are numbered may you move on to the light.”

>it's time to move on...shall you take a second chance?
>>
Pick what bug you’re going to be in your next life.

>Butterfly (pros: good at magic, good filers, high charisma. Cons: lack of natural defense besides tasting bad, extremely fragile, low strength)

>Roach (pros: well rounded, resourceful, and adaptable. Cons: low charisma, people hate your guts )

>Beetle (pros: high armor, very strong. Cons: low intellect, slow moving, sucks at magic)

>Wasp (pros: hive mind to back ya up, team player, fast flyer. Cons: you hate just about everyone apart from your own kind, anger issues, people hate you back) note: if you roll for this you got to be female. Drones are useless.

>Grasshopper (pros: can jump really high, decent eyesight, mid-level charisma. Cons: a common prey item, nosy, can go locust if they’re angry or hungry.)
edit: forgot to change my name. god damn it.

your name's Dorito. some call you dory, others call you dusty. Regardless,your just an average roach guy trying to make ends meet and providing for the community. a community that resides in some damp basement in some deadbeat apartment. your village worships a man by the name of Bob, a human who sometimes drops food in here every now and then.

at times, food offerings are scarce, especially when Bob sleeps when the lights go out. and when it does go out, the scouting party is tasked to survey the food den to search for food. it's late at night. the only sounds you can sense are the flickering lights and the tv static from the other room.

you and your band of scouts happen upon the white cave. the insides of which are so cold, that it freezes even you not just the food. knowing this, your uncertain if you should do it.

> enter the trash can

Naturally, a roach's go to place for free food was a dumpster dive into the trash. At the end of each week Bob puts all his trash into this place to at least give his house some semblance of cleanliness. Not that you mind, but you were more of lover of clutter. More clutter means more food after all. You singled your comrades to climb the trash with you before jumping head first into the opening.
Sliding down a cardboard tube, you stumble upon an unfinished piece of pizza crust laying right across from you. Now who would ever leave a nice piece of pizza crust behind? Bob, that’s who. Without a second thought, you grab the pizza crust with your mandibles and drag it up the tube.

(Everyone, roll a DEX check. Since your species is a roach, they’re very flexible so ya get a 3+ modifier [1d20+3])

soon enough, you fell out the trash can and your fall was cushioned by one of your pals. Ah. pocket, what a reliable guy. with the crust still intact, you all agree to carry it by the sides. seem easier that way.

but before you and your bros cloud scurry off, a large meow echoes in the distance follow by large foot steps.

pockets' feelers rose straight up. "it's him!"

"Boys over here!" You yell as you dash across the kitchen floor. The rest follow you but pockets trips and falls on his back. His legs and four pairs of arms fail about while the cat slowly moves towards them.

You try to reach out but Sourcream, a older roach male pulls you into a crevice under the kitchen table.

"But we gotta save pocket!"

"It's no use" sourcream said grimly " once a roach falls on his back, he never gets up unless someone flips him up"

No. He just too young. He can't die now!

Screw what he says, pockets can be saved. Even if you die trying. You slip out of the crevice and I to the floor where.pockets was trying move away despite his predicament.

Your manibles grabbed his arm and dragged him quickly across the floor. The cat caught pockets leg and a tug of war ensues. Each side trying to push pockets into the other direction. With a heave and pull, pockets was sent flying out of the cat's paw and into where the crevice was. The only thing he lost was a leg.

The looming cat tried to swat at you but you narrowly dodge and shove yourself inside the crevice. Pockets followed in pursuit before the cat slams its pan into the crevice. It proved to small for the cat. Soon enough it leaves to find better prey.

"Yes! That mangy beast is gone" you exclaimed in triumphant.

Sourcream pointed to pockets' lost leg. "You forgot something."

" Ey, I could manage. A lost limb doesn't mean much for a roach. " pockets said, still surprising happy despite what happened today.

> Time to go home, maybe we can patch this up

in bob's apartment, there's a massive network of shortcuts, nooks, and crannies all over his home. it just so happens one of the crevices leads back into the basement where everyone's been waiting hours to get food. squeezing the crust wasn't easy at first. it took all three of you to push and shove the thing through one of the holes until it eventually spilled out of a pipe.

y'all crept out of the water drain. once you came down, sounds of drum beats and jingles greet you. the dancer girls of your village prance around, showering good health gifts of candy wrappers. you ignore all this and find a girl standing within the girl.

it was debbie, a friend you knew since you were nymphs. her arms were crossed, eyes straying away from you as you burge through the crowd.

you knew debbie has been wanting to become shaman for the longest time now. naturally, she entertained the idea of working under ole miss sardine, a roach elder who lived in the far outskirts of town. no besides debbie knows what she does in that hut. it was mostly making potions and have chitchats with spirits she always claims.

" We need sardine, debbie. your brother pockets...kinda"

"lemme guess," she said looking at you intently. "he lost a limb"

"...yep. but trust me, it was out of my ....control."

debbie sighs. "look, dusty. i know you're trying your best for this village but you can't be going out risking limb and feeler for food."

"i know. but bob hasn't come back since sundown and the nymphs are begging like nosy crickets!"

debbie stood there for a moment. she scratched her chin, her feelers laid down a bit, and her legs stood straight. "promise me you find way to get good, dusty? and if you do, i'll get you to sardine, but just know she's in her...horny...phase."

oh that phase, no wonder she hasn't came out of her hut for weeks.

...

you, debbie, and pockets walk near a corner of the room. there, a large can labeled "old sardines" sit adjacent to bundle of burning toothpicks. debbie walk towards to the curtain door before knowing on the side of the can.

"hey! it's me debs. your apprentice."

a croaking old voice began to speak "debbie cakes, is that you darling"

"yes and with a friend.he asked if you can heal pockets leg....or lack thereof."

"oh! he lost a limb, you say? lemme see , lemme see!"

the three of you enter the hut. a mask falls from the roof and lands right in front of you. it made ya jump up a bit. the vibrations of a wooden cane alerted you. it was ole sardine, in the flesh, standing there grinning...rather flirtatiously.

>"Pockets had a run in with bob's cat. Lost a leg to it. Any chance that can be fixed, one way or another?"

sardine inspects pockets - now gone - leg. the stump it left behind still wiggle, as if the leg was still there. "hmmm. is this boy find with a simple cane or a new leg?"

" if i may, ma'am. a simple canes" pocket insisted.

"but fine young man such as yourself can't go around without a luscious leg" Sardine croaked with a bit of a smack to her lips. pockets stepped back a bit.

"um sardine, maybe he just needs a cane. transmutation magic tends to backfire a lot, member?" debbie said. sardine smacks her with her cane.

"nonsense" she screeched "this man needs a leg stat! you there, the fine handsome boy, get me some ingredients."

"what kind?" you asked.


Sardine opened her jar and toss out several scrolls made of old printer paper. She finally pulled out one wrapped in a harden leaf shell. "You see this boy, this is the scroll of forbidden spells but for those spells to work I need components."

"For what I need are the tears of a spider, the scales of a mantis, and the hair of a bee"

You cocked an eyebrow. " how supposed we find it?"

Sardine puts the scroll nicely in her her handbag. "Simple, you two to outside"

"Outisde!" exclaimed pocket, shivering with shock. "But ain't that place dangerous?!"

"Of course it is. That's what makes it special. Besides, dory old boy manage to survive a cat didn't he?" she asked, grinning.

Pockets was about to open his mouth but soon closes it. Seems like she's right.

"Very well then" she clasped her hands together. "I expect you to be off tomorrow."

You and Debbie start to exit the door. Before you did, sardine grabs you by the shoulder. "Before you go dear, I want you to know not trust outsiders no matter what. You might regret it soon enough."

And with that, the curtains close behind.
