The mystical journey begins once more. Will our hero reunite the pages? Will she recover her lost leg? Will Borgheist eat himself to death?Find out, nowish! Sorry I didn't run on Wednesday like I said I would, I went to visit my sister instead.
You wake up from you terrifying leg removal nightmare and find yourself in terrifying leg-having been removed reality. You look around. You seem to be in some kind of doctors office?> Call for someone> Get up> Check Inventory> Other
>>824393>check inventory>inspect roomGotta make sure we didnt lose any items
>>824413Your inventory seems mostly untouched, though it would appear the shrunken elf has begun to break out, even managing to arm herself.
>>824450You lean up and prepare to explore the room, only to find it's actually quite small and there isn't much to see.
>>824450>Store elf inside the lamp>exit room
>>824488You put the elf safely inside the lamp.
>>824648You limping to the door and eventually make your way outside the room a little clumsily. As you fallout of the door, you catch the attention of a pixie doctor...Though it seems very large for a pixie...
>>824867Sorry about the delay, it's all good now. Also sorry for the lack of commands in the last update.You look up at the pixie and ask for help as they eerily inch towards you."You're not supposed to be out of your room yet young lady. It's nap time!" > Ask Pixie to explain> Crawl away> Other
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>825119>Gamble 50>Explain
>>825152You ask the Pixie doctor to explain herself while gambling away 50 gold on the side. You notice she isn't really listening to you, focusing entirely on your coin. A single tear rolls down her face."A gambling problem, at this young an age? What is this world coming to. Your parents should be ashamed little girl.""But I'm not a little girl. I'm in some ambiguous age range between high school and university graduate." you clarify."Our records say that you're not even 30 years old. And while I'm very impressed that you can talk, you're still only a toddler and you need your rest.""I'm a full grown adult!""A full grown adult who still crawls around?""I'm crawling because I got my FUCKING LEG CUT OFF""A likely story."You really hate long lived races...> Protest> Return for naptime> Other

>>825821You float upwards to freedom! Take that Pixie doctor! Haha!You hit the ceiling.> Talk> Run > Other
>>825833You explain to the Pixie that humans have different lifespans as pixies. The pixie has a hard time believing it, after all, you were being treated by their top human specialist. And while you ARE a human and probably know how they work, you haven't exactly had that much experience on the subject compared to him.She decides to take your word for it. You're free to leave whenever you want.> Leave Hospital> Explore Hospital> Other
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>826066>Gamble 100And>Explore Ghost room
>>826373You wander into the next room, there seems to be some kind of ghost waiting here.You ask him what he's here for, he says he needs a BOOster shot. You both laugh. He says he isn't comfortable discussing the real reason he's here with a stranger. You give him some space.> Talk to Ghost some more> Explore elsewhere> Other
>>826456>Gamble 100And> Talk to ghostAsk if he has any pages or issues he'd pay money for.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>826505Forgot to roll
>>826505>>826514You ask the ghost if he has any magical pages or tasks he'd be willing to pay for. The ghost thinks for a moment. He explains that while he doesn't have any physical objects he can carry around, he feels he could probably be of assistance. Thing is he only really has one problem and he doubts you'd be able to help.You see, the prom is tonight, and he has noBODY to go with. You laugh. Apparently this time it wasn't a joke.> Continue to talk> Leave room> Other
>>826558Offer our body to him for the night for like, some really cool magic power or something.Only rule: NO SEX
>>826628You tell the ghost that if he's looking for a body to take to prom, you're up for it. He looks confused at first and explains that he needs a physical form, not just a date. You explain you got that, and that you're only offering a body for the night, in exchange for any cool ghost stuff.The ghost excitedly rises from his bed. You explain that sex is off the table. If he needs to ask himself, "Does this count?" that's off the table too.The ghost excitedly agrees with this proposal.> Go Through with Deal> Make changes/Add to the deal> Bail on Deal> Other
Someone posted a response saying they'd take it and then they deleted it. I don't know if that means I should do...
>>826703What could possibly go wrong indeed>Take the deal
>>826703What's the worst that could happen>do et
>>826756You feel very cold as the ghost begins to enter your body.
>>826839You wake up in a cave. You are naked and lying in a pool of your own vomit and or ectoplasm... Your missing leg is inexplicably returned, but it would appear you also lost your other leg. You also have a tramp stamp. claw marks and a court order. It also looks like you're no longer pixie sized.But in front of you lies a page from the book, so really it was all worth it.
This is the last update of the night. Hope you guys enjoyed, i'll probably be continuing tomorrow sometime.
If we're naked, where exactly IS the inventory?
QUEST STARTING AGAIN IN LIKE AN HOUR>>827536DELET THIS
>>827826You get up an access the situation.The leg is bleeding pretty steadily. You should probably try to take care of that. You grab the court order and skim through it. It would seem you are to appear in front of a Court of Mages in the society of lllium (Thats spelt with 3 lowercase L's) for allowing an unlicensed spirit possess your body willingly.But besides that dumb stuff, there's only good news left! Another page for the Tome of Quest is right here!> Grab Page> Investigate cave> Check Inventory> Other
Also, I kept forgetting to put them in yesterday, but if a command has a "*" next to it, that means that you need to roll a 1d100 to determine if you succeed.Also, using any kind of wand requires a roll as well.
>>828064You use your float spell to help support your weight evenly and make your way to the page. It's not even booby trapped! PAGE GET: Contact Demon To cast this spell you simply draw a simple circle and offer an amount of gold. More gold means a bigger demon. 10 gold = imp, 100+ = not recommended for beginners. > Explore Cave> Check Items> Other
>>828102>Use page to clean vomit off yourself.>Check Inventory
>>828102got color formatting wrong.>>828115You don't really want to ruin a perfectly good page, i mean, there's already blood all over it. You use the court order instead.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>828139>Gamble 100And>Summon Demon: 200
>>828244You begin to hop around in a circle, your leg's bleeding making the appropriate symbol on the floor. You flip a coin and win yourself 100 gold, which will help cover the cost of this spell.You start piling up the gold in the center of the circle and start chanting. Soon the circle forms a gateway and a demon begins to make it's way through. It's a sight so startling the mimic can't help but reveal itself in it's terror. Once the demon is about waist deep through the portal, he looks at you, laughing maniacally. AFTER 10,000 YEARS I'M FREE. TIME TO CONQUER EARTH! > Get demons attention> Hide*> Other
>>828345>Get demons attentionExcuse me Mr demon, I'm the one who summoned you so would you mind healing my leg before getting your conquering started?
You call to the demon, he stops his maniacal laughter. You explain that you are the one who summoned him and you want to know if it's possible if he could fix your ruined leg.He extends his hand to shake and introduces himself. I AM PAZBOHR OF THE FORGOTTEN KINGDOM OF AVALECH, HEIR TO ONE OF THE 8 THRONES OF THE ABYSS. IT IS A PLEASURE TO MAKE YOUR ACQUAINTANCE. AS FOR YOUR REQUEST, IT'S POSSIBLE WE COULD WORK SOMETHING OUT, BUT FIRST I MUST ASK... ARE YOU EVIL?" > Answer Truthfully ("Just a little Evil")> Answer Differently*> Other
>>828461>Answer TruthfullyJust a little Evil... for now
>>828461>Answer Truthfully ("Just a little Evil")You can ask our kidnapped mini-elf if you have any doubt.
>>828472>>828481You tell him that while you aren't THAT evil, you are just a little evil. I DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO JUDGE JUST HOW EVIL THAT IS.... HAVE YOU EVER FOUGHT A GOOD GUY? LIKE A REAL, PALADIN BEFORE?You tell him that technically uh... nah. HAVE YOU EVER TRIED USING DECEIT TO DO HARM TO INNOCENCE? Well, actually you have! You present him with the shrunken elf. GOOD YES THAT'S A START. I CAN SEE, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO TEACH YOU HOW TO BE EVIL > Accept evil teachings> "Fixing the leg is fine thanks."> Other
>>828563>Accept evil teachings> Become number one
>>828563>"Fixing the leg is fine thanks."Wouldn't want to get in the way of your conquering.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>828643>>828648ROLLING
>>828648>>828650While Paz is warming up for a song and dance number, you interupt him saying that you wouldn't want to get in the way of his world conquering and that it'd probably be for the best if he just fixed your leg and you called it a day.Paz agrees with this and gets to work on your new leg. LEG GET! While Paz gets out of the portal and leaves, what do you do?> Investigate Lever> Talk to mimic> Other
>>828719>Talk to mimic
>>828730You walk over to the mimic on your new leg. It's still as a regular chest but it drops the act once you call to it enough times. The chest's key hole begins to glow red, revealing the mimics eye, it looks you over a bit. "You know you're real indecent, I think I might have some clothes inside if you want them."> "No thanks, I'd like to talk about ___"> "Sure"> OtherWas gone for dinner
>>828922>"Sure"also you wouldn't happen to know how we ended in this state or where is this.
>>828948You lean into the mimics mouth to pull out the clothes, while rummaging through a few corpses of adventurers her tells you all he knows about the incidents of last night.From what he gathered, there was some kind of undead ball, a ghost possessed you and used your body to attend. After the ball, the ghost took his date out for a walk, where they were attacked by a werewolf, despite the fact it wasn't supposed to be a full moon tonight. That's where the scratches are from. He doesn't know how you regained your leg, but basically, after the ghost and zombie walked you here, as payment for your possession, they decided that since you had one leg before, you wouldn't mind having one leg again, and they ate your leg as a snack.The reason you were naked and the trampstamp, he doesn't know, but the ectoplasm vomit is just a normal outcome of being possessed.

>>828345>that power rangers reference
>>829125>>829129While it's debatable whether killing an evil monster that attacked you first can really be considered evil, you decide to kill the bastard.Placing your hands on the chest, it begins to float. You have a really easy time pushing it along the dungeon to the X on the floor.The mimic is definitely nervous, but stays silent, likely to avoid opening it's mouth and revealing it's weak spot.(Gonna draw the lever pulling and results separate I guess? Stay tuned.)
>>829185Can you levitate others? Impale him on ceiling spikes
>>829185Placing the Mimic on the x, you pull the "not a trap lever. turns out... it's actually not a trap! The door slides open and the mimic breathes a sigh of relief.> Exit the cave> Check Inventory> Other>>829192You can yes, It requires a roll normally, but I determined the mimic isn't really gonna fight back and you can theoretically just try until it works, therefor not needing a roll. That said, there isn't very much force behind the levitation, at least, not enough to impale someone against spikes.>>829215Hi!
>>829234Check inventory. Did the demon keep our captive?
>>829234>Are you the guy who did the giant eyeball monster quest?
>>829234>Exit the caveLucky bastard.
>>829247Nah, she's "fine"...>>829255If you're referring to one that happened really recently with a dude running around a house, then yes. Otherwise, don't think so, unless I'm forgetting something from my older quests.

>>829345>Explore up the mountain
>>829352You climb up the steps of the mountain. You find yourself at Drogan's Door, said to be the gateway to a vault filled with all sorts of treasures and gold, but guarded by a terrifying beast.In front of the door lays a dismembered skeleton and a message drawn in blood... bu the way its all laid out kinda just raises a lot of questions.. did he write this in reverse? In his own blood? Where the hell is the rest of the body?There does not appear to be any spell pages of the Tome of Quest resonating from the door.Also, due to a mistake on my part, the layout of the mountain was thrown off completely.> Open Drogan's Door> Knock on Drogan's Door> Explore elsewhere> Other
>>829283Yes. The house one. I liked it. Kept my attention. You are awesome at subtlety and suspense. No one saw that thing coming. This thread is fun too, but i reaaaallly wanna see what happens.
>>829414Open the door. For we are evil
>>829416I'm glad you enjoyed it! I had fun running it. I'm thinking about running a sequel, but I wanted to have a more solid idea of something for the players to actually DO before I run it again.Where as this quest is almost 90% improv and pretty casual. I'm mostly running it as practice for future quest ideas I have.
>>829426I like your spellbook art.
>>829422The door swings open fairly easily, Inside the monstrous cavern lays a pile of gold larger than your home.Also in front of you, the glowing red eyes of the guardian, Drogan. > Continue onward> Run Away> Other>>829461Thanks, it was actually the first thing drawn for the quest, the whole thing kinda got based around it. Also, I may have to call a break for the night soon.
>>829511I mean... I meant after another update or so... but actually perhaps it would be for the best to leave it here, so I can have time to prepare Drogan for next session. TO BE CONTINUED I GUESS probably tomorrow...
>>829536I like the suspense of Drogan as is.Ttfn.
>>829536Steal Best Hoard Trophy, then run.See ya
>>829492>>829536>Talk to Drogan. We may be evil but that doesn't mean we can't be civil.[roundabout intensifies]
>>829997Do this first.
Alright guys, I've got the next update done, but I've decided to postpone continuing this quest till tomorrow afternoon (aiming for like 3:00 EST). I've got a lot of important stuff to do tonight and tomorrow morning, so it's probably for the best I don't divide my attention too much.Hope to see you then!
Gonna have to postpone again. Having incredibly obnoxious internet issue. It's been going in and out all day and while it may be possible to run, I honestly don't think I want to with these conditions. It's incredibly frustrating.In the mean time. I guess I could share what was GOING to be posted today for those who want to see.Hopefully things will be better soon. I'll post again to let you know when it will continue I guess. Sucks to keep delaying this quest so much.
