    103 KB "Deathwish" quest 4.75 Firstquest 10/21/09(Wed)02:22 No.6364430  
    Excuse stock footage for unexpected 3rd Thread of the night. ( Jebus.)

    Your arm is complete. It is beautiful, strong and just for effect you punch in the air with it. The sound it makes is deadly and almost a shock. You've become more adept at fighting, but it feels like this Steel and it's magical properties increase effectiveness of whatever applied to naturally.

    We got a month until the contest is over. Might I suggest that we give him the axe now as after all this work getting it STOLEN or something stupid like that would be bullshit. Put it in the royal vault or something.

    So how are we going to make the new wing for the gold dragon? Get the black matriarch's wing and mod it so it will work for the gold?


    Show dorf princess the axe.

    Begin study on dragon wings so we can recreate the golden dragon's wing when the time comes. We should have one left from the harvested black wyrm corpse.

    It is a couple of weeks until the competition. You are pretty much a celebrity here, and people are begging you to stop by to drink with them, craft something for them, or tell your tales.

    You also have offers of Training to fight, from some of the best in the Kingdom. Many healers, scientists and Mages want to inspect your phantom arm as well.

    There isn't some rune of attachment we can use is there? If there is then we just need to add a joint or something similar to the black matriarch's wing and present it to the golden dragon.

    Give the Dwarf King his axe unofficially so he can put it in the royal vault or something. We don't need the fucking thing stolen after all our hard work.

    Then, go study up on how to:
    1. Help the King kill the mama Black Dragon.
    2. How to possibly use the Black Dragon's wing to graft to the Gold Dragon.
    Also, keep in the back of your head that you need the Black Dragon's eye also for the Gold Dragon.

    If we have nothing else better to do, I'd suggest that we take the princess up on her combat lessons... I (cautiously) trust Firstquest enough that our town won't be a smouldering ruin when we get back... But things will probably get dangerous upon our return.
    Also, since we made a weapon that will surely be passed into legend and still have a month to go, we could tentatively make some sketches for the artificial wing... though we might want to wait until we have access to the library for that.
    Speaking of dragons, do you think we could ask the king to forbid the dwarves to hunt those two? They seemed alright for amoral, immortal, lizards after all.

    She hasn't had time to come to see you with all of the ceremonies and hype that comes before the week of a king Picking his weapon. It seems these things usually only happen once in a lifetime, If the king loses his weapon It can happen more, so this is a rare chance. The news of your weapon has made this turn out crazy. The city is literally packed with people.

    You wonder if the Axe is safest in the King's vault or with you. He has stated he can't keep it with himself because for him to truly choose before it started is dishonorable.

    It would be beneficial to work with the mages and scientists for a while, we need to learn some of their trade for improving our weapons. Chat more to the ones that seem to have most interest in weapon enchantment. Also, make a few weapons to sell in our spare time.

    You decide to let the King hold the Axe under personal guard in his Royal vault. His face and threats to his guards if anyone get it, are reassuring. He talks to you now as if you were a long time friend. You inform him of the Eye you need and construction of the wing. He says he will make sure you are given an in tact eye once her head is above his throne in chains. He mention coming with him to fight the beast and he shakes his head. He will bring men to fight her brood, but the bitch is his alone.

    You mention the wing once more and he nods, he will do more then just give you books, but his best men will help you make the wing.

    Other weapons are shrouded in Secrecy. It seems that they are Ballsy to compete with you, but the reason your weapon has been spoken about so much is it was too big a secret to hide. You doubt there is much that could stand up to your axe... but you're not always right.

    naw, he said he was going to save money and buy something epic from us when we got back. We wait till we get back to find out WHAT he wants weapon wise, or armor wise, or whatever wise. Then he PAYS us for it.

    But we should make a gift for wolf-chick. Maybe commission a tailor to fashion some type of clothing that wont get ripped when she goes from chick to wolfchick. Can we get elastic stretch pants invented in this era?

    cant we just join up with the brood hunters again? im sure they'd LOVE our company considering they all made it back last time we went with them.

    This way, we can always claim one or two of the brood for 'parts'. I imagine having a stockpile of black dragon scales to work with will make our forge back in our town VERY popular, with careful use one or two of the babies worth of scales will last for a LIFETIME.
    >> Firstquest 10/21/09(Wed)02:45 No.6364698
    In your spare time, when you are not answering questions from mages or learning about your own arm, you are trying to think of something nice to bring back to your old friend the Wolf girl. You can't think of anything that make change enough to survive her shape shifts and he seems un-interested in material things.

    She does not wear clothing or use a weapon. She's hard to shop for to say the least.

    When you are doing none of these things, whenever she has free time the Princess shows you how to fight. She kisses you and hugs you occasionally, but it seems once that real night of lust was out of her system she controls herself.

    Finally Three days stand between you and the competition.

    Your trips go swimmingly as the first time, in fact better. With your combat training, and with their guidance not to mention your new arm and hammer, you walk away with a great haul and thin the Brood's numbers. You convince them to not just bag the big ones, but try to take out the smaller as well even if they do not have fully developed acid glands and less scales, soon the assault will take place anyway.

    The bodies are picked and you walk away with two glands full of acid, plenty of scales, and loads of nasty teeth.

    There is no time to create any armor before the event, but you do make a nice little necklace of smaller to larger Dragon teeth. It's a nice little number and little silver links hold them together. You assume the Werewolf who you owe your life will really appreciate it.

    You have one day left. And you have not found a bard, but they would likely crawl over eachother for the chance to speak on behalf of your weapon. Do you wish to find one, or do it yourself?

    The next day is a royal mess. People line the streets on every level of the fortress people shout and cheer and curse when any of the smiths walk by. Banners line the sky, and guards are in their best armor shined and ready.

    It takes time, but eventually you are in the packed throne room, and under a black sheet, so the crowds cannot see it, same for the other two smiths.

    You made sure to give the coat back as you saw the Princess on the way in and she thanked you many times over, but it seems she was reluctant to take it back until you explained what it might look like.

    You are chosen to present last by the king for obvious reasons. The other two dwarfs look at you as if you are scum. They might of stayed to prove, even with the rare materials, no one can beat a Dwarf at Smithing.

    The sword is huge, and decorative, made of Black Steel with etchings of Dwarfs and Dragons fighting down the length of the blade. Its CraftsDwarfmanship is of the highest quality.

    The king walks up to the blade, and makes a gesture, a large pedestal is wheeled out into the middle of the room, on it is a huge Dragon scale. Not the tiny Black Dragon broodlings, this likely came from the queen herself. It would be akin to hitting a target made of plate steel.

    The king pulls back the weapon and bring it down, it down, a rune shines on the hilt as he strikes, you know it as a Strength rune, The weapon sinks into the scale and the crowd cheers apparently sinking in even a fourth of the way is an amazing feat.

    rolled 4 = 4

    The cart is wheeled away, and the king nods his approval, in the right spot that weapon could kill a dragon given enough blows.

    The next weapon is unveiled and it is a huge two handed hammer. The face plate is covered with the rune you know as Earth. He picks up the Hammer, and the rune glows. The weapon is simple, and not very decorated, but the head of the mace looks like it was designed to deal death.

    A new pedestal is wheeled out and the king raises the hammer up to strike.

    ..and the hammer slams into the scale. The entire place seems to quake and rock. But when the show is done. The scale is barely scratched. Still it was an impressive display of raw power. The Dwarf grunts on after the presentation saying that the reverberations could kill the monster even without breaking his scales.

    Finally it is your turn. And you stand, wheeling your weapon out on the provided pedestal. The room is silent before you as the King stands, you can see how hyped he is.

    You've never had so many people captive before, and words catch in your throat. People stare at your arm, stare at your scar. Some look hopeful some scowl at your race. It takes a couple of deep breaths, and you think of how far you've come.

    It is time to make everyone proud, and show them all you are more then just a lucky man. You forged yourself through trial. It is time they all know this.

    By the hand of a deadman and the fury of the forge; the parent killer and vengeance bringer thirsts for dragon blood to engorge. Through the death of it's mother, cackling witch of a storm; it feasted upon it's father, in flames and acid it was truely born. It waits for the king who will raise it up high; to smite the black mother and cut open the sky."

    You tear away the cloth, and the crowd stands pushing each other to get a better look. The king walks forward, and takes the axe in his hands.

    His excitement is barely contained and it can be shown as the Axe reacts to him. Lightning Dances around the blade tip, to leap to the tooth at the bottom and then back up to the hammer side of the axe. Fire Crawls around the edge, actually joining the lightning as it leaps from point to point, as if their union was complete in his hands.

    Not a sound can be heard save held breaths as the Axe raises above his head...

    ...And brings it down. The sound is deafening, as if he was actually using a storm of flame and fury. Thunder echoes through the room, causing people to jump in fright. Followed by quiet once more, aside from the crackle and flames of the axe.

    The Scale, and the stone pedestal it sat upon both are cleaved in two. The axe head is sunk into the Floor, and with little effort the king pulls it free. Staring in wonder as the enchantments calm with him, but do not go out. No one has seen such power before. He turns to look at you, tears in his eyes. With this his thirst for revenge can finally be filled.

    So even though we surpassed our Deathwish (and I'm not sure that we ever had one) are we still going to go around saying we do? Because it's a pretty good motif I must say.

    I'm also 4'9" tall and 92.5 pounds heavy.

    Yay for having tons of genetic defects and taking truckloads of meds since I was 8.

    Given how awesome this quest went, I feel an updated image of the Despair's End is in order. Great job Firstquest!

    Also, I will try and get our glove (with assorted weapon attachments) sketched out in time for the next quest.
