    178 KB Farming it Quest, Pt III, to kill a god. Anonymous 11/09/11(Wed)21:30 No.16900817  
    "I need you to kill Istavaan and stop his assault on the Baresti." The crone explains "Chop the head of the serpent and well, you know the rest..."

    You are Bill son of john, a farmer of something or other, you've dealt with the fae and now have been asked by one to kill the baron/lord of the region you live in.

    What shall you do?

    If we do, we can get in on the ground of a new tenure agreement with his replacement, if we get away with it. I say we go for it.

    Take another bite of our bounty of the river soup. Is it still cold?

    Also, you know my stance on this. I want more fertilizers for the field, and already made an oath to put Istavaan under a plot of wheat we would have tithed for him.

    Wait, I'll do that in THE mish-mash accent!

    A quick summary of prior events:
    You as Bill son of John have committed murder of a messenger to a local minor lord. In the process you have stumbled on a possibly world shaking chance at cornering the spice market with a plant that no man in your country has ever seen.

    Cue, conspiracy after conspiracy culminating with you being given the option to cut a deal with a Fae, this fae has promised you a rather hefty gift in the form of untold riches by helping you grow that plant. that night, you lost your house to a greenman a form of magic user that uses plants to do crazy things.

    In making another deal with the fae you manage to beat your foe and have been given the option to complete your bargain with this spiritual being by killing Lord Istavaan the dude in charge of your little corner of the empire as well as stop him from defeating the Baresti a local tribe that inhabits a resource rich region of the country side.

    You, are a farmer, you have crops to sow and you have a long days work ahead yet. But, in the distance come hoofbeats of someone making their way to your little hovel.

    The clip clop of slowing hooves reaches you, rounding the corner is another young man in armor, Silver and green.

    "Sir farmer! I am from the Silver chalice, I come bearing tidings on this fine day for you and your...grandmother?" He's certainly naive by the looks of things. "Word has come to us of a festival to be held in three days time, it has been my solemn duty to spread this word to the surrounding farmsteads and hamlets, it shall be in the town of Esvine two days travel from here."

    and without another word he charges away off to deliver another message.

    Yes, I know it's strange to ask, but feels more stranger for Bill not to ask. He's been treating the fae like everyone else...

    How many wheat seeds we have left, and how many can we ration for the helpers and for our own food and stock? I'd vote for not going actually, but we'll see. Maybe the fae would like to go. And, oh, how far was the town with the maid?

    Sleepy bump.

    Fae mentioned that Istavaan has made enemies. Powerful enemies, on many sides. And at the same time she explicitly mentioned that she does not expect the lord to be fertilizer IMMEDIATELY -she is amenable for that to be a long term goal- but of immediate concern is that Baresti should not fall under his or our current empire's reign.

    Seems a bit more easier. We just need to disrupt his ability to mobilize enough army... We could force him to abandon the plan entirely or at least be routed if he does attempt it.

    Plans for the farm- I mean, plans on how we'd do that? Well, we can further disrupt tithing attempts, ruin his coffers, saturate market with saffron (would magic vase speed up maturity+production?), gain more money, or even leak info to Baresti...

    You have to go to the festival that much is obvious and it will take time. You have the option of walking, using the cattle and wagon and also the option to stop in glacou to offer people a ride and possibly make some dosh/get some favors in the process.

    the festival is in three days, Esvine is two days travel on foot. In theory you could cut it close and get there a little late. Given the nature of the festival it will at least last a few days. You remember when the town of glacou still venerated the old spirits...they were a better time for the farms it seemed and often you remember your father and or mother coming home piss drunk in each others arms possibly with a third party.

    We are going to murder someone and having her is unnecessary risk. Besides, we might be dealing with spirits. I do not know how she will react to this.

    And do we have anything from the crops ready which we could sell?

    none of your crops are ready though you do have a couple of nice small logs of oak that you know could fetch a decent price. As for moving out today or tonight would probably work best.

    Either way, fancy post.

    You've set your road looking out into pale blue sky you realize that somewhere along the line things have changed, the road you had first stepped out on has shifted once more, a hand guiding you towards possibly a greater destiny. At the same time a shadow looms behind you, a figure in white, vase in hand, soft words and small smiles as deadly as daggers.

    a modicum of power, you can now feel the presence of spirits.

    you steer them cattle abouts with ease, breaking away from glacou fast as you can. Even so its still a little unsettling, you make your way to the halfway point between the two villages with little fanfare. Along one side is a small modest inn, now glutted with travelers from all over the area heading towards the festival. On the other, a small field also packed with people. The sun is setting and there's a certain chill to the air.

    You shrug and flick the reins the cattle grudingly move forward. As you make your way into the forest beyond you hear the echo of thunder in the clouds and a large wet plop hits the brim of your hat. The cattle, ignoring you out of exhaustion meander to once side of the road and stand their ground firmly and unwilling to move. This probably is a good thing given you now are beginning to feel steady rain pounding on your back and dripping on the brim of your hat. theres also another sensation, a crawling in your gut, butterflies these are not. More like centipedes squirming in inside of you.

    You hold the small heart in your meaty fist, if just out of fear. As you look around you begin to dip into the other side, the land talking to you. Telling you what is amongst it, hidden and waiting for those who can walk amongst them.

    All around you they crawl, minor spirits hundred if not thousands of multifaceted eyes glittering in the waning light, staring back at you. curiosity peaked. At the same time something else moves out amongst them, larger, older. Something that has long since died and refuses to rest, its anger palpable as it prowls through the forest looking for those that in days past took its life.

    The smaller spirits have come to you, drawn to the smell of warm dirt and cold blood you exude, trying to hide from whatever it is that lurks deeper in.

    With a gesture you usher them towards you, the clearing you reside in is filled with a pale, warm light. they fill the space standing on any space that they can find, including your cattle's back. All staring at you, looking on with eyes that have seen the shift and stretch of the land itself. And yet, they seem scared, terrified of something that you cannot fathom.

    Even as you stretch out on the ground, leaning on one of your great bovines as a backrest you notice that they seem to be staring, always staring.

    you draw a very simple shape, a fire.

    the minor spirits stare for a few seconds before a few leave...a while later they return carrying what appears to be perfectly dry wood, how they found it is beyond you. Carefully they set up a fire and soon have a crackling blaze going.

    As they do this you begin to feel something crawling along your back, and with a sharp sting something tugs at the back of your head, ripping hair out and running back into the group...which once again stare at you....

    They move about for a bit, piling on top of each and seeming to blend together forming a bestial shape, hundreds of eyes cover its body and gnashing teeth sit in wolf like jaws, they circle you and the fire staring from all sides...In the distance you hear the crash of breaking branches...

    Another mass takes the rough shape of a man, together they whirl and dance fighting each other blending and breaking apart by the firelight. eventually though the man is swallowed whole...

    They fall apart back to their separate shapes and huddle around you staring at the picture you've drawn. looking at each other they seem to be talking soundless before coming to an agreement. In the dirt the draw an image of a man, beside it something else, a tear drop? and beside that an scribble of what might be a spirit.

    you try to force yourself to cry to no avail. The minor spirits stare at you passively as the sound of rending trees draws closer.

    Once again they draw this time, a hand with a single tear drop shape coming from it, a spirit standing beneath it. All eyes trained on you, they wait...

    even before you raise the axe you find one on your outstretched hand, tiny claws digging into your skin as it opens a toothy mouth wide, biting down on your wrist...Blood flows freely onto the ground the various beings scramble to lap up the blood from the wound as something massive appears at the edge of the fire...

    you begin to circle watching a long tail swish back and forth snapping young trees with ease. It would seem your axe is a proper weapon for this fight.

    the beast lets out a grating sound, the creaking of heavy trees and the scream of wood being cut echoes in the still air as it charges.

    Roll to dodge boys.

    you barely get out of the way as it charges past, trampling down vegatation and leaving a trail of rotting plant matter behind it. It turns back towards it baneful eyes staring, wooden teeth grinding.

    The staring eyes move finally, with fluid motion they surround you encasing you within living armor. the forest floor now seems to be writhing, a living carpet of spiritual beings pulling down on the monstrous thing before you, slowing it.

    You duck and doge by the beast, the spirits mercifully slowing the big bastard down as much as they can though how long they can keep it up is hard to say. You bring your axe upward, swinging up and into the monsters neck. Thick sticky sap sprays you in the face as you cut more of it, the head starting to hand to one side even though it seems to be losing little steam.

    you manage to roll out of the way, just in time it would seem as a massive clawed leg would have taken your head off, instead it merely cuts deep into the bodies of the spirits that cover your body. You're getting short on breath but it looks like the sap leaking out of it is taking its strength and feeding the minor spirits who get a chance to feed on it.

    the beast glares at you again trying to ignore the spirits that are crawling up its legs.

    For a moment nothing happens, the beast finally fall however.

    you toss a couple of burning sticks onto the body of the beast and settle in for the night your cattle have meandered back now that the fight is over.
