    The computer screen lights your dark and dismal room, the distinct colour-scheme of /tg/'s layout illuminating nearby shelves containing various books on fantasy and myth, rulebooks and player guides to a variety of tabletop RPG settings, and the occasional collectible item such as figurines, special edition comes-with-your-order trinkets and whatnot else. Your desk is strewn with pens and notes, a dicebag tucked neatly in the corner where you know to find it. By the side of your bed, its sheets unmade for an on-going two months now - a personal record, you mentally register - your digital alarm clock registers the time as being 8:03AM. You pulled another all-nighter, it seems, and the reason it's still perpetual darkness outside you chalk up to the fact that your blinds are closed, and doubly covered by your thick curtains blocking out that heinous sunlight.

    The call from downstairs you recognize as your mother, telling you to wake up and come have breakfast. You suppress a snicker at the 'wake up' part of her calling.

    Yes, you still live at home, even though it's been plenty long since you passed the fabled 20 year checkpoint in your uneventful life. It wasn't a big thing as you might have thought many years before.. but then, you've grown accustomed to the simple disappointments of normal living. You've lived an average life, with average success and average failures. Of average health and mediocre fitness at best, and an easily forgettable face to boot, so as not to mention your almost non-existent social life. If you had to sum yourself up, you'd probably call yourself the typical Anon; although you aren't sure if that's something to boast about sometimes..

    Your self-depreciative musings are interrupted by your mother calling for you again, telling you to hurry because she has to go to work soon.

    (It's my first quest. Yay. You'll forgive if it starts off a little slow as a result, but it'll pick up along the way.)

    Taking a yawn that drains more energy from you than you'd like, you push away from your desk and stretch your legs, feeling the joints pop and make that funky crackling sound ever-associated with prolonged lack of movement. Making your way to the door, you aren't sure whether it's because you're tired and have spent too much time on /tg/ or just stupid, but your murmur 'I kick down the door' to yourself before raising a foot to boot your bedroom door open.

    Unfortunately, you misjudge your aim and end up slamming your foot against the corner of the door frame instead, feeling your balance slip and your ankle give an uncomfortable twist to the side. As you barely manage to contain a loud cursative, instead hissing 'FFFFFFF', you drop to your hands and knees and groan sorely. As the pain momentarily gives way to reasoning thought once more, you realize that you ironically assumed the genuflect posture.

    You can hear your mother calling again, asking what that loud banging was and then telling you to keep it down.

    (..I'll see where this goes, I guess.)

    You hobble to your feet. You didn't quite twist your ankle, but you came pretty damned close, and the sissy in you makes you want to limp for dramatic effect - hey, maybe it'll garner pity with the family downstairs to see you in pain. Sure, you'd have to leave out the circumstances leading to your sore foot, but there's still the possibility of getting special treatment.

    As you semi-limp down the stairs, you hear the tired, light yawn of your little sister behind you, only for her to brattishly push you aside to get down the stairs where breakfast awaits.

    The household is a nice one, and your family isn't exactly one that goes hungry or needy, even in the current shitfest that the economy is supposedly in. Around the table sit your parents; your mother doing some financial job you never really bothered to ask about, and your father an electrician. Your littlest brother, aged eight, sits beside them, trying - and failing - to balance playing his DS and eating his cereal. Ironically, and perhaps sadly, he's probably the one member of the family you related to on mere geekish interests. Your little sister is already at the table as well, chowing down on the pancakes your mother set down.

    As you enter the kitchen, your mother looks up, wiping her mouth with a napkin neatly so as to keep her makeup from smearing, "Oh, there you are. You'd best hurry up and eat before it runs out. I'm not about to cook more just because you slept in."

    On the table there is an assortment of scrambled eggs, two slices of toast, the greasy plate where bacon used to reside, a bottle of milk and a box of cereals.. and one last pancake.

    You reach for the pancake, as your thirteen year old sister's eyes suddenly snap to attention. As if judging your intentions, and being a general little bitch, she quickly tries to steal it away first. Thankfully, as you had already begun reaching, and range was in your favor, you manage to get your hands on the last pancake and begin reeling it in towards your plate..

    ..when your little sister grabs the corner of it, her whiny voice disrupting the dull quiet of the breakfast table, "Moooom! He's stealing my pancake!"

    Once more you curse reality for not granting you some means to get back at the people who give you shit in life. So you do the next best thing and punt the brat in the leg beneath the table, startling her and bringing about a plaintive sound that grants you the distraction needed to snatch YOUR pancake away and put it on your plate.

    "He kicked me!" Your sister insists, looking at you with a glare before turning her eyes to your parents with those puppy-dog eyes that have added to your conception of 'Women are bitches'.

    "Don't kick your sister." Comes the disinterested response from your father, who is too busy reading the newspaper to give a shit about the dramatics of your sister, or anything else for that matter. Seeing she won't be able to get you in trouble for this much, this early in the morning, your sister pipes the fuck down and eats her breakfast grudgingly.

    The pancake is yours. Glory and triumph!

    "So what're you going to do today?" Comes the question from your mother, spoiling the victory you had managed to score yourself by using that 'do something with your life' tone you've been getting for so long now.. You dropped out of college earlier this year. Nothing interested you, and you weren't getting anywhere even though you tried. As a result, your mother has been pestering you about going back, or at least looking for a job. You have contemplated neither.

    While eating your pancake, you shrug your shoulders and give the usual, unenthusiastic "I'unno." mutter that you normally give, taking guilty satisfaction in knowing how much she hates it when you act like this - it kind of a petty revenge in the face of her always asking you the same goddamned thing. Sighing as if she doesn't know why she bothers anymore - as usual - your mother gives you a look,

    "Just don't sit up there all day again, alright? It's not good for you."

    From the corner of your eye, you see your little brother punching the air and giving a spittle-filled 'Yesh!!' over some success in whatever game he's playing. It's probably one of the RPGs you got him hooked on. You're a pretty good brother to have for someone that's eight and likes videogames.

    "Are you listening to me? Go out or something. Get some air, before you need to be institutionalized or something." Your mother goes on, adding the whole 'institution' shtick once more. Because not knowing what you want to do and sitting in your room is a mark of mental illness, apparently.

    Not wanting to hear any more of her lectures, you take a deep breath and casually remark with the same unenthusiastic glamour as you've perfected over the months, "I was thinkin' of going downtown and looking for a job."

    That seems to have appeased her a little, as the mothering frown turns passive and she sighs, "Well, just as long as you get out and about, okay?" She walks around the table and touches your shoulder, "I just don't want you wasting away, is all."

    With that, she heads off down the hallway to head off to work. Your little brother is still obsessed with his game and your little sister is now pulling at your father's shirt, "Daaaad, I gotta go to school. Give me a ride!"

    (I'll let a few more ideas roll in as to what to do, but sure I'll answer this: You are without a car. You used to live on college campus and even then didn't really get around, so you never saw the need for one. You get around even less now that you're at home, so whenever you need to go out it's the bus or the subway or ask either one of your parents if you can borrow their cars when they're not using them.

    Downtown is a good thirty to forty minutes away on foot, ten to fifteen by bus and five by subway. Although the subway is a five minute walk in itself.

    You do have a good deal of cash saved up from the last job you had prior to leaving for college. It was supposed to be spent on food and other supplies and last the whole year or so, but seeing as you quit, you've just been sitting on it, spending it on whatever catches your fancy at times.

    While you have no bragworthy talents, you aren't exactly bad when it comes to problem-solving, or deductive thinking. It comes from all those situations of roleplay and having to use your head to figure shit out. Just as long as nobody asks you to solve any elaborate math problems or comment on other educational jargon and you're fine. Alternatively, being a massive geek, your nerd lore is high, even as far as cultural mythologies go. In other words, what you're good at, is of no use to you unless they suddenly have a college major for DnD or something.)

    You decide to pack in a bit more breakfast before excusing yourself from the table and heading back for the stairs. You nab an apple from the fruit bowl on the side, and then make your way to your room to get ready for.. whatever it is you'll do. You contemplate selling crack for a moment. Thanks to a strange derailment on /tg/ on the subject of fictional drugs, you have a fairly good idea of how much crack goes for on the street, at least. You're tired, but thankfully you're running on that nice energy high that you sometimes get when you've stayed up for too long. Taking a shower and shaving your shaggy half-excuse for a beard away, you look at your plain face in the mirror. Your dark hair has grown pretty long, the bangs nearly reaching past your eyes. You think it might be your imagination, but it seems kinda thinned out in places.. probably from not taking too much care of yourself.

    Dismissing that for the moment, you head back to your room full of books and clothes scattered around the floor, your laptop in its bag at the foot of your bed. Taking a deep breath, you dry your hair and pull open your wardrobe to pick out some fresh clothing. Jeans, jeans, slacks, t-shirts with amusing images on front and a few short-sleeve button shirts.. the rest is in the washing basket for now. While pondering on what to wear and if you should take anything else with you, you make the minor decision for now that you'll take the subway, if only because it's the fastest way and the cheapest.

    Or go undershirt, and a long sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up, top button unbuttoned and a nice pair of jeans, casual yet stylish.

    Good. We have the option for epiphany.

    If we've saved up enough to cover a year's worth of food, then we have something amazing - enough money to get anywhere in the world, at least one-way by plane.

    We're going to go back upstairs. We're going to shower, shave, put on that one pair of jeans that fits really well, strap on that one leather belt that kinda looks like the broad ones in the PHB, and put on the shirt that, while it might not be high fashion, fits well enough that it doesn't make us look fat (but also doesn't have a fucking wizard on it [even though we fucking love wizards]).

    We go to Wikipedia. We hit "random article".

    We buy a one-way plane ticket to the first location listed in text that's outside our home country.

    We then spend half our remaining cash on a backpack, some basic survival gear, and a really nice, -sturdy- walking stick. We are going to have ourselves a fucking adventure. After all, isn't this what we want? No job - no restrictions. No tremendous ties to home, no love life to abandon! We have all the potential in the world.

    You grab a pair of jeans and a blue-grey t-shirt along with a beige button shirt and proceed to get dressed in a casual-but-nice manner. In the midst of it, your mind wanders to other clothing-related issues, such as crossdressing, which leads to an awkward consideration of putting on your little sister's panties underneath everything.

    You shake the idea out of your head, convinced that you must be really fuckin' tired, or that 4chan is starting to get under your skin in ways you never even dreamed. Once your pants are on, however, you have more important shit to think about: Gearing up. You have your old jacket that you usually wear to go outside in, naturally, but given the fact that you hate backtracking, it might be a good idea to take a few 'essentials' with you if you might feel so inclined.. Or you could just take your wallet and do whatever you want.

    For a moment, you then consider the impossible.. You have a pretty good sum of money to your named stowed away. Technically, you could go someplace. Run off and ditch everyone. It's a scary thought.. but then, any huge change is scary..

    Taking a moment to think about it, and do so properly, you take a deep breath and mutter "Fuck it," under your breath. Your life isn't great. Your parents care for you, sure, and your mother has your best interests in mind despite her nagging, but this is getting you nowhere.

    You sit down in front of your computer and decide to let fate roll the dice for you, bringing up Wikipedia and trying for a random article.. The page you bring up mentions of a herb that can be found in eastern Europe.. one of them being Greece. Greece sounds nice. You're a huge mythology buff, and Greece has plenty of that, and history. Greece sounds really nice.

    Starting to feel motivated, you bring up the website for the local airline and start to book yourself a flight to Greece, leaving today. After printing out the flight information, the only thing left is to pack your shit together and get your ass out of this place and on the road to adventure. You make a mental note that downtown there's a store where you bought some of your books and stuff.. you could sell a lot of your old nerd-books and collectibles there. The thought of parting with your collection is daunting, and like the idea of leaving so suddenly, change is frightening to you.. But you swallow the choking sensation and decide to throw the things you like the least into a backpack or two where you can take them to be sold.

    If we're still not sure, we listen to the main theme from TTGL. WE PREPARE TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.
    Also, "The Odyssey" by Symphony X, but only if we've got 20 minutes to listen to the whole thing.

    But yes, we just pack up and fuck off. We'll leave a note on the kitchen table:

    "Mom - you're right. Time to get my shit in gear. I'm leaving for while. I'll send mail when I can. I'm not sick, hurt, scared, upset, or in trouble with the law. I love you and everyone else."

    Aside from the previous list, we'll need a few more things, all of which can be purchased at the local Harbor Freight or outdoorsy-type store.

    -a copy of General Reference, a very tiny book entirely filled with information ranging from the angle at which particulate matter falls down an incline to common injury treatment and phrases in foreign languages. It's awesome, and I own a copy in real life.

    The more you think about the things you need, the more worked up you get about the idea of leaving. Doing shit is hard work! Maybe that's why you dropped out and have been in such a rut lately.. In any case, from what you can figure and discern from the various websites you referance for general 'backpacking through Europe' know-how, most of this shit you can pick up downtown.. You thankfully still have your old passport from three years ago when mom dragged you cross-state for your great-uncle's funeral, so that much isn't something to be concerned about.

    About ten to fifteen minutes later and you've packed mostall of the essentials that you can find in your house.. Your laptop, a toothbrush and shaver, your iPod and clothes, a few books that you couldn't bear to part with and one or two that would actually come in handy, along with your passport and general identification. In a large backpack you've stuffed whatever you figured you could sell, figuring that you'll refill the backpack with supplies from the various stores you'll make a stop at while downtown. The ticket you booked is for a flight that won't go into the air for at least several hours from now, meaning you have plenty of time to get things sorted and whatever you might need before finally heading off to Europe.

    Holy shit, you're actually going to do this shit..

    You contemplate calling a friend or two and offering them to come along, but you know that they probably wouldn't. The ones who would can't afford it and those who can afford it are too happy with their lives as they are anyway. Besides, there's no guarantee that having them along for the ride will make shit better.

    So far on your to-do list you still have to buy supplies for camping or trekking about Greece if you can't find anywhere to stay, and maybe get some additional spending money out of the bank.

    As you make your way downstairs, you eventually stand in the empty hallway. Your dad already went to work, and took your little sibs to school while he was at it. It's just you in here. Taking that into account, you decide to write your mother a letter in parting, telling her of your decision, and then leaving it on the side where she can find it.

    And so, with a deep breath, you carry your two backpacks containing what little of your life you stuffed into them, with your laptop slung over your shoulder and music blaring out of your headphones.. And step out of the door, making a start for the subway. It's a bright and shiny day out. The start of a new beginning.

    Go to the bank, withdraw everything, cut your card in half. It's risky traveling with a lot of cash but I don't want to be A) Tracked and B) Lose the card or have it stolen then be left with nothing. See if at one of those downtown stores they have hidden compartment clothing (socks with a zipper pocket on the inside so keep all your cash hidden.

    I'm sure we'll find something, yes we are a little unprepared, but I think that is part of what makes it so scary and exciting.

    I say we head to an army surplus store. look for a good army jacket. Preferebly an older Canadian one. No camo (we dont want people to think we're a soldier), lots of pockets, and the subtle canadian flag on the shoulder will get us a bit more respect from europeans (sorry, but its true)

    Most of the rest of the gear is fairly standard.
    also, we need a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen...we arent used to the fear ball (sun) in the sky quite yet.

    You know, being from Europe, I would indeed do such. Though that's mostly because they saved the fuck out of where I live during WWII.

    When we grab a jacket from the army surplus store we can get a hat from there too, it'll work well enough.
    >> The Wandering Milkman 10/22/09(Thu)23:20 No.6392335
    The subway ride downtown is fairly uneventful, but then again it never has been and probably never will be. People pushing and shoving to get out once you reach your stop. The gaming store is the closest, and so you start by offloading everything there and stowing the money in your wallet. You got about as much as you expected for all that stuff, close to $300 or so. Not bad for a bunch of books and collectibles, but then again you always kept them in mint-condition. With that out of the way, the bank is next on the list.. You waver between taking everything out and just using your card to pay for everything instead..

    ..So you just take out a huge wad of cash in Euros and leave enough on your card to make a difference should you need to. All that's left now is to buy supplies and befitting clothing. As it's already Fall, you figure you might want to get something a bit warmer and better suited for trudging around Europe this late in the year, and so you end up buying a pair of winter shoes, thick socks and a proper sweater, as well as a thicker winter jacket than the one you have right now, stowing that along with the rest of your clothing before heading from store to store picking up the rest of the necessities you had listed off to yourself. It seems you overestimated your carrying ability however.. you couldn't get yourself a camping stove that would fit with everything else squeezed in. Instead, you got yourself a zippo lighter and some fuel for it.. If anything else, you could always light a fire with it and use that..

    With most everything out of the way now, you feel hunger start to settle in. Plus you're still pretty tired. Taking a load off does sound like a pretty nice idea.. You make a stop at a local cafe and order yourself a simple meal and a cup of coffee to keep awake, while mentally going over whatever you might have missed or forgotten.

    As you order your meal, you look over at the girls a second time.. they look to be around fourteen to fifteen years old.. The typical, giggly preppy girls that you are used to seeing in the nerd stores you've frequented, buying Twilight novels and romance manga. They're even wearing makeup and lipgloss that makes them look kind of trashy. Pretty much 'bitches and whores' to an extent that makes you want to chuck up the meal you were eating.

    In spite of that, you decide maybe you should brush up on your socializing skills and get up, mentally rolling a 1d20 on your charisma scores.. with penalties.. and then walking over towards their table, ignoring the fact that they're rather obviously underaged.

Chances are we'll never see them again and we just made a life changing decision to leave everything comfortable, I would say this has raised our self-confidence and increased our ability to brush off criticisms.

    (Fine, consider mine the penalty. 15-5 = 10)

    As you stop in front of the girls' table, they look at you with a look that exudes a blatant sense of 'Who the fuck are you?'. You struggle with trying to find a good opening line, only for the blonde in the group to start the conversation before you get a chance to..

    "Like, did you want somethin'? We're kinda, like, havin' a private conver-say-shun goin' on here, y'know."

    Her way of speaking is full of sass that makes you cringe as if you never could imagine girls like this really existed. The girls all giggle and start to whisper amongst themselves, ignoring you for a second. From the corner of your eye you see a fourth girl walking out of the cafe, holding a tall milkshake. She's dressed like them, although downplaying the trashy look a great deal more. Brunette hair tied into a single pigtail on the left side, and wearing thin-rimmed glasses. She sits down with all the other girls, looking at you confused as if wondering why you're just standing there.

    Ask the not so trashy one to walk with you to the subway.

    Yes I realize how creeper status that sounds.
    >> Earl W. Brannon 10/23/09(Fri)00:01 No.6392995

    No, no, no.

    Ask her *where* the subway is. Then, ask her to show you.

    ask the girls what they thought of the latest twilight movie.
    >> Earl W. Brannon 10/23/09(Fri)00:05 No.6393042

    We rolled a 10, not a -5.
    >> Anonymous 10/23/09(Fri)00:07 No.6393072
    I suggest rolling an opposed charisma check (with associated penalties, of course) for yourself and each girl, with you making a single roll. Each of their attitudes rises or falls by the difference, then is multiplied by some number, representing a first impression roll. Make a similar roll each round, except without the multiplier, and reduce any gains if the average opinion of you is negative. If you can get any of the girls over some number (different for each), that one is willing to go with you. If one of them falls to negative some other number, she leaves, and so do all the others.

    Did the nerdy girl leave or go? Because you said she left, but at the end, you said she sat down with her girlfriends.
    If she left, have our friend have a boost of self confidence, tell the girls to fuck off and have him go out of the cafe. Have the girl that just left and our PC be waiting at the subway station, and strike a conversation If she did indeed sit down with her friends, have our character trip over his words, and leave embarrassd. Have the shy girl come out after the PC and apologize for her friends, and have them walk to the subway station to catch that train together
    This is my first rp ever and I fucking love it.

    It'll probably get 404'd but we'll archive it and I'll bookmark the link for later, the OP will probably do the same.

    Welcome btw.

    OP should give a day and rough time for when he'll continue. Then just show up. Checking the archives at a later time also works if you missed something.

    (The 'walking out of the cafe' is meant in the sense that there's outdoor seating. She went inside to get a drink, and came back out to sit with her friends. Anyways..)

    You look at the girl with the glasses and manage a sheepish and awkward smile. You suck at talking to strangers, let alone strangers of the opposite gender, but here goes nothing.

    "Uh, hey.. I, uh, I'm sorta new to town," you lie, figuring the best way around looking like a total weirdo is to make shit up to help improve the playing field, "I was wondering if you knew where the subway station is."

    The girls, all except for the one wearing glasses, snicker and look at you like you're some kind of weirdo to approach them and ask such a thing. The fourth girl, on the other hand, says nothing, taking a sip from the straw in her drink and then waiting for her friends to quiet down, "Um.. It's on fifth, near a clothes' store called CJ's."

    You know this, of course, and the directions defeat the whole point of talking to her after all, so you respond with another lie, "I'm not sure where 'fifth' is. I don't suppose you could show me, do you?" You try to smile and look pitiable - not like that's a very difficult thing to do. The girl's friends all look at you suspiciously, as well as with a bit of resentment that you're pretty much ignoring them as far as asking for help goes. The blonde leaning in and muttering something about you looking shady and not going with you, but the girl smiles awkwardly, "Well, I guess there's no harm in showing you how to get there at least.." She gets up, despite her friends protesting, you earning a few more glares from the stuck up bitches.

    The glasses-girl grabs her schoolbag and slings it over her shoulder, walking around the table and then looking at you expectantly, "Shall we go then?"

    (And I'll carry on from this point tomorrow night. Hope you guys enjoyed it. I might take shit down a very different road as things progress further.)
    >> The Wandering Milkman 10/23/09(Fri)00:20 No.6393253
    (Well, if you look at what time I started it. Then compare that time to the current time. I'll be starting around that time again, perhaps an hour earlier than this one.)

    You incredible, jailbait tailchasing assholes.

    The goal was to have an adventure halfway around the world, not chase tail THAT IS ALMOST THE SAME AGE AS YOUR SISTER and get fucking arrested in a McDonalds down the street from your house.

    Fuck you guys.
    >> Chuck Foreman 10/23/09(Fri)00:42 No.6393539

    We will, but with big decisions come big changes. Our guy is feeling more self-confident and has taken the courage to talk to a young lady (ok, yeah Jailbait, but I really hope the other guys weren't thinking of doing anything but talking to her). I saw her role as something to send him off with, nothing more.

    I'll be pissed as well if you decide to go back to her house, or bring her along.

    Greece jailbait is legal we discovered earlier. Not going to let that slip by if you know what I mean.

    Please tell me we're going to we're off to adventure and soul searching, not greek pussy. I understand how important that latter is, but I'm afraid this will spiral into something shitty if we go too far with it. It should be a supplement, not a focus.

    Go ahead and have a few occurrences of it, but there should be something learned from it. He's changing into someone else yes, but that person doesn't have to be some fucking asshole super stud all of a sudden because he decided to go off to Greece. This shit takes time. I'm looking for some good solid character development, not "nerd to pussy magnet"
    >> Word_for_a_name 10/23/09(Fri)00:54 No.6393686
    Don't worry, I'm just kidding. I'm highly enjoying the quest for a simple flower somewhere in east Europe. The characters we'll most likely interact with in Greece will probably be 20-30, teenaged kids still suck at English.

    She probably doesn't have the money, nor will she be stupid enough to go with a stranger she's only giving directions. We're the ones that need protection more than her if you ask me.
