    Following the Character from "Firstquest" (on sup/tg/ if you wanna read em.)
    Part one's diplomacy all here:

    You've got plenty of ideas all ready swimming in your head for the weapon you're intending to create, and it is making your ride to the mountains seem to fly by.

    You have two and a half days to make it to the Fortress in the hills, and you figure as long as nothing happens it is plenty of time. There is a town to rest in along the rough un-finished road you are heading down. Your plans could let you stay there for the night, but you don't have to.

    It is rather cold and a night in an inn would be a night out in the snow however.

    Backpack with plenty of food/supplies camp equip. 50 gold pieces.
    Blacksmith hammer: Useful for your trade, and combat.

    You go ahead and pull into the town, hop off your horse and stable him. You have not been this far North east of your home and this is the first time you've been here. It seems to be a normal Pioneer outpost, as you come across a few different races as you walk to the inn.

    It only takes a few minutes to get a table and a drink. Once you've taken off your cloak and have a room for the night you look around the inn and then begin to browse through your book on Dwarf language and culture.

    A few minutes later a rather busy red head walks up and sits across from you. She's dressed like a bar maid, but does not seem to be working. She's staring at your gauntlet arm as if very curious before she speaks.

    "You the guy that took care of that tower up north? Lot of talk about him... or you.. if its the case."

    "Yeah I'm him. I'm also reading. Why do you want to know?"

    She seems to laugh, she seems shocked by the fact that you're not automaticly nice to her from the start, as she might be used to given her looks.

    "Well. We've heard about you heading to take part in the dwarf's old "Weapon Off". I was hoping we'd get you stopping in. Lots of adventurers died up at that tower. One of them was my brother. He'd been gone for years and ...thanks to you his body is finally at rest back here."

    She smirks and shakes her head looking a little sad.

    "Meant a lot to my mother. I just wanted to say thanks. Figured you were some old man. All the talk about you didn't say anything about you being this handsome."

    Its rather obvious where she is heading.

    The conversation goes on for a couple of hours, and you find to your shock she's not just good looks, but fun to talk to as well. Its not long before things end up more then a little adult oriented. For the first time in about 7 months since the whole incident you honestly enjoy yourself.

    Mildly drunk and with a woman better looking then any you've had before who sees you like a hero, not some blacksmith. Perhaps the perks are not so bad with the adventuring gigs.

    After an amazing night you wake up in a tangle of smooth, pale freckled limbs. The sun has crept up through the window to warm on your face. The girl is sleeping soundly even as you sit up.

    If you want to be on time you'll need to leave before noon, so you have plenty of time to ride before settling in a camp for the night. The town does have a few shops as well.

    There does seem to be a couple of decent shops in this town, a really well decorated Alchemy shop and a Weapon's store.

    Speaking with the Weapon's clerk leads to some interesting info on the competition the dwarfs did not bother to tell you.

    If you lose and the King does not pick your weapon, you will have to pay for the materials you used. Not even the king can pardon that, because nobles under him are the ones providing the ore and steel, and the competition is a huge money maker for them to absolutely screw the losers for gold.

    You pick up a few healing potions in the Alchemy shop as well, since you didn't have any on you. The best part...

    No one charges you for the stay in the inn, the potions or the info. It seems all of them view you as a guest for the moment. You could really get used to this.

    You head back out on the road on time, and.. ( Rolling for fun if anything happens on the way)

    You decide to tough it our, and just as the sun is rising you find yourself in front of a large metal gate. It is painted black and gold painted spikes line it.

    The fortress is built directly into the mountain, and from the pillars of smoke rising from chimneys poking out of the stone, the place is filled with burning fires and likely a massive number of dwarfs.

    You sit there on your mount, shivering as you look around, your cloak flapping behind you, your horse stamps around as if he's tired of being in this freezing weather. Riding all day and all night, you feel like someone whos taken a beating.

    Suddenly the doors begin to creak open, and the sound of gears grinding is almost deafening. You still don't know how they knew you were here.

    Inside you can feel warmth and a few Armored guards are walking out to meet you, one speaks to you directly.

    "Ya must be tha human who's 'ere ta remind us how good our craftmanship is by comparison."

    He laughs. Its hard to tell if he's joking.

    He tells you that he's here to show you around and make sure no one thinks you need a knife in you till you are settled in.

    You ask about the inn and he laughs, informing you that you'll have your own private quarters, apparently all the blacksmiths are being treated as royal guests.

    He shows you around the town as he walks you through the streets, the inside of this mountain is massive. Far below are the forges, you have to take an "Elevator" whatever that is. Down to them. He says this current level is mostly full of taverns shops and "riff raff".

    Its a long, long flight of steps that curls around and around higher and higher. You are beyond tired by the time you reach the floor he wants.

    "And this where you'll be staying."

    Its as if they built a castle out of the mountain top. Stairways curl and rise around the place twisting around homes and snow covered shops and streets until finally leading to a massive castle carved of stone, statures of axes, dragons and monsters decorate the place. You're actually a little dumbfounded by the site.

    After another long walk you're in a fancy loft that will be serving as your home for the next few months. It's three rooms, a bedroom, a workshop and living room. Its strange how warm it is once you are inside as it is freezing cold outside. The dwarf does not seem to notice. He shakes your hand and heads off leaving you to your own devices.

    Ya, I made that last night when people were throwing out weapon ideas. If the collective changes their minds on the weapon being forged, I will update it accordingly. Paying for this thing if we loose could prove very costly.

    You can sleep in your quarters and you do so. Its a long restful sleep under piles of animal furs. You kind of like how dwarfs live.

    You are woken for dinner by the dwarf who escorted you up, and are lead downstairs and into the main castle. Your cloak really does not keep out the cold this high up, and you're starting to think a coat would be great.

    You're soon in a feast hall filled with important looking folks. You feel plenty under-dressed. Its rough being deemed so important when you're really not very rich. You get a few nasty looks from a few of them, and from the conversation you can pick up, they are talking about competing.

    You are asked to sit, and find youself next to the king's daughter. The table is large enough for you to sit at, but all the shorter race's chairs are easily tall enough to make up for it. Seems they are used to having guests of every race here.

    "Glad ta see ya showed laddie! My father is hopin ya kin really stir things up. Even if ya don' win ya will make all the others work 'arder so they don't git beat by a human!"

    She seems delightfully oblivious to the bad outcome of you losing and having to pay for your materials, and giving back the sword that has become part of that shrine. This is starting to look like odds are more then a little stacked against you.

    Any conversation you'd like to make. Questions. Etc?

    After everything settles in, and you get used to the conversation, it seems you're the butt of a few jokes, but still respected. Its as if the dwarfs consider your bravery enough to make you "one of them", but not enough to mean they need to respect your ability as a blacksmith or a fighter.

    You are polite when you ask about how the competition works.

    After the king tells you plenty, you've found out these things.

    Once tonight is over the competition has begun. Apparently they -hate- the idea of cheating, so much so that sabotage, or stealing ideas etc is punished by exile or jail time.

    You can use whatever materials you want, and it can be any kind of weapon, you cannot re-forge another blade to give him, or go treasure hunting for a weapon, you have to make for the king alone.

    In three months the King will judge each weapon and decide on the one he wants. The way he will judge the weapon is using it on a target covered in black dragon scale.

    Most weapons would be broken apart. He expects them to cut through it or smash it.

    You get to tell of the weapons lore and items it is forged by and with and that can be done by yourself, or a bard if you wish before the King is given the weapon for testing.
    >> Firstquest 10/18/09(Sun)23:55 No.6332778
    The night concludes, and the King's daughter asks if you've been shown around the forge, or if you have any ideas as to what you'll be making.

    I think a plain rounded or flat end on that axe would be a better idea. If the guy needs to poke something he can already do it with the hunk on the top, and if he needs to smash something he'd end up having to do it with the flat of the blade, which would be kind of a pain in the ass.

    You decide to take her up on her offer, and she leads down a maze of halls to another massive set of doors, they lead to a strange looking room, it looks like a cage with bars and grates. Its very sturdy, but you can see through the black steel, straight down a long shaft all the way down.

    You are not afraid of heights, but looking down the shaft gives you virtigo. She pushes you inside and laughs a little as she yells out some orders to someone unseen and suddenly the room is moving down the shaft, once more with loud creaking motions of grinding gears.

    The forge is massive and amazing. She takes you to your station and begins to explain things. You can order any ore you like, in almost any amount. Losing it however means you'll need to pay for every bit. Gems and magic etc. Rare parts will have to be aquired yourself.

    You had her the sketch you made before you even left your town. Needless to say she looks impressed.

    "My father would love this axe, but ... I mean you'd have to slay a black dragon to get the parts for it. Or.. well at least find someone who is selling parts. ... but aye... 'ed love it."

    The rarest of the steel down here is something you've only heard of, never seen. It's known as "Black Steel". From how she describes working with it, you could handle it. Gold and such is also available, but apparently the Obsidian stone turned to Black Steel is both the strongest, best looking and likely what everyone will be using if they want to chop open a dragon scale.

    She also tells you the reason her father is looking for a new weapon is to hunt down the dragon who ate his late blade and escaped. He was hunting that dragon because it also ate his son.. her brother. She says if you -do- manage to find someone to kill a black dragon, they better make sure it is not that one, if someone steals her father's kill he'd be furious... but the dragon does have a young brood out and about.

    She explains some of the runes to you. Apparently the rune you understand now, and have on your hammer is one of protection, and its effect builds over time. The more evil spells it defends against and more connection with the user the stronger it becomes for that person.

    Other runes take a ritual to become active and actually work, just carving it into the blade is not enough.

    >> Firstquest 10/19/09(Mon)00:29 No.6333184
    ( cont.)

    When you ask about the fire rune, she explains how it works. You carve the rune into a weapon you wish, and then kill something. You don't have to use the weapon, but you must kill something then burn the body, and hold the weapon you want blessed over its smoke.

    Apparently the stronger you want the rune, the stronger the burning body must be. the rune is related to the Dwarf god of Blood, Fire, and Combat.

    She pulls a one handed axe from her hip and shows it to you, and then shows you the rune. She swings the axe around expertly and then yells, finally the blade for a short moment bursts into flame.

    "It works best in a real fight, but tha bigger and badder tha thing ya burn ta bless the rune... the more often and more wicked tha fire turns out ta be."

    You've heard of steel stronger then Black, but they are things of legend. Such as steel forged from the metal scales of silver and gold dragons turned into an alloy together.

    It takes a legion of soldiers to kill such beasts, and they are more then a little rare. Finding one then killing it is like wishing for a mountain of gold.

    You cannot re-bless a weapon as far as she knows. Once it has a rune dedicated to a god into it, that is all there is to it. She does know of rumors of runes to dark gods that can have their ritual done over and over, but such weapons are evil and illegal.

    Once a weapon has its blessing, its pretty much set in stone. She does say, however, as long as a couple of gods have similar effects and runes, they can be combined.

    She puffs out her chest and proudly declares she's held a bastard sword that had both a fire and lightning blessing. She has no idea how to bless a lightning rune however.

    The Lich tower was nearly bare of all its important trinkets. It seems that the place was constructed with the sole goal of working as a ritual to murder loads of people and increase the Lich's power. The gems in the walls all shattered and the massive one was destroyed by you leaving them little more then powerless green shards of glass.

    The only riches there really is knowledge in dark arts only evil people would wish to know.

    All ready ideas are rolling over in your head. Dragons are not really "good or bad" Creatures. ...well aside from black ones. Black Dragons hate everything, and only the eldest and most powerful of them are sentient, the rest are little more then large winged lizards that spit poison or acid.

    If you were lucky enough to find a gold dragon. Then find a silver one. AND manage to get a couple scales from each. And not die. You wouldn't just be a local hero you'd be written into books.

    But there is no way you could kill one or defend yourself if you managed to tick it off. If it wants you dead you are dead.

    Turtle apparently is great for shields or armor making them multiple times stronger then what they are, they become cursed if placed on weapons. To bless the rune you have to take a blow to defend someone else, and drip blood from that wound onto the rune.

    And if they demand to know why we want the scales, and don't know or ask about the competition, we'll tell them that in doing what we did to kill the lich, a sword belonging to the king was instrumental in saving our life, and was thus destroyed.

    Your head is swimming with plans, ideas and self improvements. Such things might be possible if you gain access to the library he spoke of. And your pay could be used to augment everything you own and more.

    You bow and leave his chamber, the tower made you fearless and headstrong, for better or worse. Waiting outside the door to the throne room is the King's Daughter.

    "Are ya really gonna--"

    You kiss her and she kisses you back. Its a little akward because she's short. You are impressed with the force she returns the kiss.

    She pushes away a little roughly red in the face, hard to tell if its anger or... something else.

    "I kin let that slide because if ya do this yer a dead man.

    This all feels very familiar.

    You chuckle a little as you walk off down the hall.

    "I've heard that before".

    You think about resting, but even then it seems like it would be impossible, you've hyped yourself up too much. You are shocked at how quickly you've been given a heavy coat made of leather and lined with fur on the inside. Heavy gloves and boots. Rope and a lantern. All waiting for you before you could even walk there.

    You gather your equipment up, and head out to the gate. Your horse will be useless as the trails leading tho these caves will be climbing and walking on twisting mountain paths.

    Anything you want to get before you leave insert now.

    Tell me, do runes ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE TO be used on weapons and armor? I know the protection rune works on our arm and all, but I'm talking about unorthodox uses for the runes. Like setting defensive runes up on the ground to ward off the dragons, evironmental changes, s.hit like that?

    Yes, how could I forget.

    In my opinion, I'd say the most badass thing we did was that moment when we were storming the tower. Zombies surrounding us. We crash the cart into that demonic door. Arrows flying at us, one already in our shoulder. We pick up a bottle, take a drink, and smash it against the door before lighting it on fire.

    Potions food "an shit" is all packed up. Climbing tools are in your pack normally, as most people who live in rough "savage" areas it is considered essential and usually is.

    ( He does not know much about magical runes aside from what he has learned so far, but since the runes have been used on people, yourself in fact he can assume they have uses beyond combat, but he does not know any of them.)

    You think about asking for a mount that could navigate these mountains and it sounds like a good idea. You find it problematic however in the end, the nobles seem to use a range of different flying creatures that would take years to learn how to control, and are worth so much gold, you'd likely never get anyone to loan you.

    They do have donkey's who are smaller and better at navigating the small paths, but according to the map, there are places you'd have to go that they could not manage.

    Exactly. We offer the dragon the awesomest axe it's ever seen, in exchange for some scales. Which we then use to make an even awesomer axe.

    You decide to head out after going through the list several times, as the large black doors to the city close behind you, you hear footsteps and turn around.

    "Okay look. Yer Crazy. An' I barely know ya. But listen. My father almost died last time 'e fought that monster... and it was using a Black Steel weapon. A great one. e's bent on revenge. So take this. An bring it back. Ya bring back those scales and manage to make something useful outta them and I'll show you everything I know about fightin, and craftin. What ever ya want."

    She hands you a massive fur skin cloak. It looks as if it's been crafted from a huge black bear. The Cloak's hood is made from the bear's head skin, and teeth line the inside.

    "It'll keep ya warm. Just bring it back all that's left'o' mah brother I got."

    You take it and move to smooze with her again. She punches you in the gut. Seems she no longer thinks you're going to die.

    "This is serious Bronson. Nah kisses. Nah lust er' fame or gold. Yer takin an oath with a dwarf ta come back ere' wit two gold dragon scales. Ya wan' flesh that bad I'll give it ta ya iffin ya git back. But I was 'opin ya might be more interestin then tha nobles who constantly try ta feel meh up."

    >> Firstquest 10/19/09(Mon)02:36 No.6334849
    You feel like you are getting mixed signals. Either way, you might want to remember she could likely kill you in an out and out fight, and her father is a king. You don't really apologize but you nod firmly as you put on the cloak and turn to go. Your stomach -really- hurts.

    You can't always get what you want. The gold Dragon's cave will take some time to get to, but it is closer then the silver's. Your decision on where to go first.

    We might want to go to the farthest one first. We can hit the closer one on the way back. Or if we need to get back to the Mountain-home to do something for the dragon we should take the closer one. both are valid strategies.

    As you near the tiny path it says to take, you begin to debate what cave you should venture to first. You wish for a moment there was an easier way, but even a sled would likely be smashed to bits as rocks line the path.

    You decide on the first one, since it also seems to have the easiest traveling to it, and if you are wounded you could back track quicker after gauging how these dragons act.

    You walk for hours, and according to the map, it will be the middle of the night before you make it to the cave, tiredness is setting in.

    rolled 26 = 26

    You find a suitable place and make a small camp fire to keep warm and safe as the snow and wind begins to howl. You find a good little semi-cave to set up camp and settle in for the night. Sleep comes rough, but it eventually overtakes you.

    You sleep roughly. It was a terrible nap, the wind howled and the snow fell in large amounts, but as far as creatures and encounters you are undisturbed, it was just a bad night, bad weather and today will be rough travel. After eating you head out and after a tiring trudge you find the mouth of a massive cave.

    A frozen stream seems to roll out from the cave and just being in the area makes your arm... your detachable arm -hurt-. It hurt like when you were stuck in the aura around the tower.

    You seem fine aside from your phantom limb hurting. You push it out of your mind.

    Walking further into the cave makes it hurt worse, you have to light up your lantern to continue after a while.

    It feels like you walk ages in this dark twisted cave until suddenly you see a pair of eyes as large as a man's torso glowing yellow up ahead. They watch you as you move, and staring into them makes your arm actually vibrate. The steel plates humming makes you nervous.

    It's mouth opens and closes as if it's thinking of what to say to you. When it opens it's mouth you can see shining white teeth in the dark and an unnerving orange glow fills the cavern for only a moment, as if it's insides are made of heat and fire.
