You name is Aratmek Kanu, and you are a dragon slayer.Well, it's your official title, not that you slayed any dragons yet. But the good thing is, this problem should be solved before the end of the day.Your master, the honorable master Kustagn Kanu, taught you everything related to the art of tracking and fighting the terrible monsters, in the training grounds of the Dragon Slayer guild.Your mission? An easy one. Cleanup after a successful raid leaded by your master.Some younglings escaped during a nest's cleansing. After losing their lead for half a year, news came about their whereabouts. Instead of splitting around, the treacherous magic snakes stayed as one single pack. And knowing the difficulties of facing one adult dragon, your guild can't let them grow. A young dragon should not be underestimated, either. There was an attempt to attack the lair with a large force. That assault was a failure.You are one of the few in the world to know the true threat dragons represent : corruption.Their tongue allow to speak directly to the mind of mortals, gifting them a spark of their own power and wealth in exchange to loyalties. You've seen far too many Mayor, Governors, Thane, Jarl, Deputies, or other lords which where dragon slaves. And it seems one of those young dragon already found powerful lieges.
So, why are you attacking, again? According your recent informations, only two wyrmlings should delve in their lair for the moment : what your organization labels as a tunnel drake, expert in labyrinth, pits and earth magic, alongside to a river drake, waterbreathing creature.Why not a full army? A small, discreet, assassin squad was deemed more fit by the strateges of the guild.What is the plan? The lair the dragons have claimed is an ancient troglodyte settlement built upon a network of caves. Your team will enter the cave, kill both dragons, get out.
You are yourself a dwarf adventurer (Rank 3)You have a budget of 40 points.Your team can be made of :>Adventurers (Rank 3).

Good fighters, with weapons and armors (5 points/Soldier)>Specialist (Rank 2). Less skilled at fighting, they each have an unique ability providing utility.

Allright, this is the end of that quest.It was a way for me to attempt building a nice fight for the dragons, I hope you had fun. I think the final fight was too much of a grind (the fact I got sick last week didn't helped much my writing), monitoring the dungeon delve was pleasant.Did you liked the game? Any feedback or ideas?
>>5583356Thanks for the quest, qm.
I feel our overall terrible luck at/near the end made this less climatic then it should of been but I enjoyed the quest overall and always love the concept of tying two different quests together even if it's a bit of a pain to pull off in practice you did a good job of it though.
>>5583356It was interesting
>>5583356I feel like there wasn't enough of a drive (like a backstory or some quirks that'll make sympathize more with them) for us to care about who the Dragon Hunters are to make us care if they lived or not. Otherwise it was still pretty fun.
>>5583633I agree with this anon it's kind of hard to care if the mcs are gonna succeed or die when they have so little characterization
