    47 KB "Deathwish" quest 7 Firstquest 10/26/09(Mon)21:18 No.6449034  
    ( After a few days re-fresher, Deathwish is back, and hopefully will not suck, also will hopefully not be destroyed by the terrible box plague that seems to be cropping up, stepping back a little bit, and rebooting part of the story, since the end of last times turned into a downright mess.)

    After a long day, and slaying a vampire under the guise of a noble, you've moved to rest in the local inn. Having possibly ruined relations with this City and your growing home town, you've sat up during the night to contemplate.

    While staring at your skeletal hand after removing your gauntlet, to your shock and horror, what was left of your forearm turned to dust, you quickly calmed however as you felt if something was still there. After placing your gauntlet back on your stump you found you could still manipulate it as if your skeletal hand were still inside, alluding to the fact that your phantom limb must be much more then it originally let on...

    ( Continued in next post...)

    Before you can really consider what this means, a pain seems to shoot through your mind as if someone had pressed a hot cattle brand to the back of your head.

    A mess of thoughts swirl around, about all the death you have seen over the past year, how many lives you've ended personally, be they undead or otherwise. How many people have died alongside you.

    Some thoughts do not feel as if they are yours, pure hatred for wicked things in a sense of zealotry that you do not understand. Then a voice presses through all the madness, echoing through your mind as if you are hearing every word a thousand times, as if fire is etching it into your brain.

    "Carving me into your flesh made me feel hatred and fury like I never have. Made me feel hopeless and pain. Now you bear my mark, and if you wish to continue to use my power, you will keep letting me feel the satisfaction of death to darkness."

    You fall backwards off your chair and clatter to the ground, your arm feels as if it is burning from the inside out, the gauntlet burns the floor as it touches it. Your commotion wakes Yezta and she runs to your side, grabbing you and shaking you until the pain subsides and your head clears.

    She looks at you as if wanting to know what happened.

    ( And yes the long and short of it is, the more paladin-esqe he acts the more he'll be ordered around and expected to be a zealot, the more times his phantom arm's powers are used the more he'll become less Bronson and more something else. As a flip side, the more paladin urges are denied and such and powers are unused, eventually the ghost hand will go away totally.)

    Tell her what happened and ask her her thoughts. She's our partner, she should know. I personally thought AWESOME GHOST ARM at first but now this... this is just too much. What we have is a zealot alter-ego essentially that will eventually destroy what there is in the world to keep.

    While it is definitely true that we need to protect our slice of the world and maybe go questing to make the world a better place, the road to crusade only leads to biggotry, zealotry, and destruction. We should walk a fine line here. We're Charles Fucking Bronson and we are the bitch of no god. If the ghost hand goes away we will just MAKE a new one.

    This isn't to say we should become insular and not try to fight evil, but we shouldn't try to fight evil just to keep our hand and keep the powers we are gaining from this obviously bloodthirsty god (as good as killing evil things is, there's no point in going full on BLOOD FOR THE GOOD GOD)

    You decide just to keep it to yourself, and head to bed. You both lay down and rest for the night. Your sleep is restless, but you still feel slightly better by morning.

    You dress and eat, and meet your party down stairs, but as you are about to discuss where you will be heading and what would be the best move for you from here on out, you hear a lot of commotion outside.

    A large group of twenty or so armed soldiers move into the tavern, their leader looking squarely at you.

    "Mr.Bronson. Our Lord would like to thank you from freeing him of the mind control of that horrible undead, but he regrets to inform you, you still violated the law, and drew weapons in a place of diplomacy and discussion, you also saw it fit to insult him and knock a few of his teeth out. You and your orc companion must come into custody with us. The rest of your party may go."

    "Your master was under no mind control. Darkness is deep within his heart. If you'd follow his orders still, then try to take me in, I won't be restrained or removed from my party."

    The guard just shakes his head and looks around, he looks as if his heart is really not in this, and he generally believes you. His men ready their spears.

    "Look, I don't -want- to take you in. I think what you did was right, you just went about it the wrong way... but, we can't just let you go. There is another crew of guard outside as well. Right now your punishment is a week in the hold, and a few hours of lashing along with a public apology.

    If that is the only excuse they can come up with, they're going to learn what it is to be rebuffed by a Dwarven Noble with a FIST OF METAL.

    Also, maybe we should be more clever/BRUTAL. "Your 'Lord' should be here in person to grovel at me feet for not slaying his traitorous, gluttonous, and malodorous person along with his foul master."

    Though not necessarily that since there ARE 20 of them and maybe some tact would be nice.

    You look to the 6 dwarfs with you, and Rad'samaz the orc. One of the dwarfs being Yezta. They all have their weapons drawn and are ready to defend you. You think you could take the twenty that have filled up the large tavern of the inn, but no doubt the shouts and fighting would bring half the city guard down on your head.

    "I've faced a lot worse then other men by now. I don't want to hurt you, and I don't want my party harmed.You saw what he was friends with."

    The guards look at each other and frown for a moment, before their leader finally pulls out his short sword.

We rebel and kill each other so the orcs, undead, and dark things can clean up the mess after we are done? I'm going to say it once more.

    "Take care, be back from the Spa in a week." You chuckle and shake your head. The guards seem to relax a little, it seems they were a little worried about fighting your crew.

    Yetza tugs you down to her level to whisper into your hear.

    "Dun worry luv, I'll 'ave mah Da' getcha out before they make ya do a damn thing or take a single lash."

    Before giving you a kiss on the cheek. As you stand, you begin to say that Raz had nothing to do with it and shouldn't have to take any sort of punishment, but the orc moves up to interrupt you.

    "This has been the best trip of my -life- Bronson. I'd take six weeks of lashes to see that fat noble get rocked again. I'll keep ya company."

    We shouldn't play the zealot here. We should be tactful, maybe jovial, try to lighten the mood. We're close to a mob situation and either way it'll go badly.

    I think maybe Charles Bronson would let the status quo stay, maybe keeping huge EVILS FUCK like the vampire down, but probably not going all out killmaimdestroy on local corrupt politicians. Corrupt men are malleable and workable. We can persuade them and maybe lead them so that their corrupt ways make them do what we want them to. They have obvious motives. We can control them.

    Hm, looks like we may have to go along to protect our crew and the relatively innocent guards. We're Charles Bronson, not Rorschach, we can't go slaughtering city guards. But we do need to change things in this system, even if it means taking care of the noble ourselves once he tries to pull a fast one- and don't doubt that he will. Whether he does or doesn't, we can't let this bullshit stand, people who should be protecting the good people of this city afraid to do so because of reprisal from the nobles. It cannot stand.

    You place your weapons on the ground, and unhook your arm, unlike usual, it does not feel like you handed over your whole arm. You can still feel a ghostly limb on your arm.

    You look at the gauntlet, and try to focus for a long moment, you see a finger twitch. It seems with practice even with your skeleton gone, you can still move your arm around as if it were there, apparently freely now, it however takes loads of mental effort, as magic is not your forte' to say the least.

    Your party leaves the inn, and you are escorted to a small building near the center of the city, not too far from the courts. You are placed in a cell, and cuffed to the wall. Across from you and your orc companion there is only one other "person" in the cell, it is a half rotted skeleton wearing very nice clothing.

    You try to manipulate the skeleton across from you, but it is very hard to do something with your hand when it is "invisible", if you had a glove to see what you were doing with it or use as a focus you think it would be much easier.

    Hours pass and you spend the time talking with Raz. He loves living in the town, and not having to work as a merc any more, less fighting and simply trading goods. He also congrats you several times on banging a princess.

    We know getting angry works at least, maybe we should be focusing our feelings more than trying to focus on moving the phantom arm directly.

    You look over at Raz, and feeling bad you mutter your healing spell, and think hard on casting it about him. His bleeding and swelling around his face seems to go down, but he does not wake, his jaw that seemed out of place clicks back in.

    Looking around the cell, there is very little, you are sitting on mud and hay, and across from you is the skeleton. You remember trying to manipulate it, but are not trying to do so now, this un-nerves you a little, because it appears as if the toothless mouth is moving, attempting to speak.

    At first, the word "Vampire" gives you a knee jerk reaction, your phantom arm does more then hurt for a moment, it feels as if it is trying to kill you from shock. It wants to turn the skeleton across from you to dust. You calm after a few minutes enough to answer.

    "Uh huh. How do we know you aren't just going to turn on us? More so, wouldn't that grant you control of us? "

    It takes a moment for it to respond, its skull head creaking as the jaw moves up and down as it speaks into your mind.

    "Look, I havn't killed a soul for about 300 years. Plenty of noble boys and fans I have, just think I have a weird fetish. I survive, and when people start to notice I'm not aging, I move and start over with a new name. I made the accident of getting famous this time...

    Pulling on the chains with your ghost arm is still hard, as you have no focus, and besides that it seemed your hand always had your relative strength phantom or not.

    As she lays next to you, you suddenly feel that urge to kill her rise within you once more. Your mind screams to burn her like you did the other with your new found ability, but you manage to hold back your lust for destruction. It seems the elven goddess really has a "hard on" for undead re-dying.

    You are able to pull her under your arm and wiggle it enough in the chain to begin a cut on your hand, just above the wrist on the old steel. Eventually drops of blood begin to roll down your arm and into its mouth.

    She sits up and licks the blood as it travels from your arm, she does not bite you, but she looks like she really wants to. Eventually she straddles you as the tiny wound stops flowing very much blood. To say her posture is lewd and suggestive is an understatement.

    She laughs a little and shakes her head.
    "These fuckers deserve to die, I can take a little bite and let em' live if you want. Or I can suck em dry and make the trip out of the city -real- easy. If I only take a little suuuck.

    Did you not read the part after we killed the dragon? Dwarf king let us have his daughter's hand in marriage, it's not completely official yet as we didn't have a big ol' ceremony. But the point is, we promised BOTH the king and his daughter we wouldn't screw around no more, otherwise we get the axe, LITERALLY.

    Um... I hate to be the voice of reason, but keep in mind that if we start attacking the guards we will be in even worse situation. Any credibility we have will be lost in the eyes of the public (especially given that we just slaughtered a vampire lord and now are consorting with a lesser one), and we will be giving the nobles more chances to drum up support against us.

    If anything, we need to use the vampire to get more information to bring down the nobles. Plus, we still have our dwarf princess rallying support abroad.

    "Goodie two shoes huh. How the fuck did you get down here anyway.." She looks over at the orc and raises an eyebrow
    "I don't know if I even want to know."
    She laughs in a suggestive way, before letting out a blood curdling scream. You can hear the two guards once more running down the hallway.

    She pulls the oldest trick in the book, and leaps up onto the ceiling hanging upside down, by god knows what, when the guards burst into the cell through the heavy door, she lands on them, knocking them around a bit before drinking them, not dry, but enough to make them look pale on top of out cold.

    You ask her to free the orc and she looks at you a bit confused, but complies after pulling at the chains for a few moments. She hefts him onto her shoulders with ease as you stand.

    Just being in close proximity to her and not smiting her is making your arm feel strange. The initial pain is over, but now it feels as if it is fading. Bits of the mud you've smeared on it are falling off in dried flakes as if there is nothing there to hold onto.

    "So.. you want to split up and me drop him outside someplace.. or what? I know some good ways out through the city sewers.. but it won't be pretty...

    You grab your head and fall to your knees, your mind feels as if it is being torn in different directions. You've always tried to be a "Good" man, but things seem strange and twisted now. Gods are not black and white it seems, and they do not have to obey even their own laws.

    You fear losing your arm however, even if making another one could be possible, you know it won't work the same as this.

    "t...take him and get out of the city. Take him to the small town about a days journey north from here.. w..wait there, I need your information on the bastards here." You then grab her as if overcome by something, and drag her down to face you.

    "And if you kill a single person between now and then I swear I will end you -slowly- for putting blood on my hands".

    She looks shocked, and you might say intimidated, she nods slowly, and then eventually that cruel smile crawls across her face.

    "Blood on your -hand- you mean right?" She giggles as she saunters off carrying your orc friend. When she is out of sight, your arm feels as if it is still there, but very feint. You doubt you could move anything with it even if you wore your gauntlet.

    For the first time you take a knee and a deep breath and actually pray to the goddess. You've used her spells by proxy, and have been taught much about her, but never showed faith nor desire to be hers. Doing so makes your arm feel more solid, but your response is sober. You don't hear words, but you feel feelings.

    She wants Vampires, Zombies, Werewolves, Liars, Gluttons, Thieves, monsters, necromancers.. the list goes on and on, as you think of all of the things you... no SHE wants dead. Your head starts to hurt once more. She wants this world pure for her return and you can do it for her, you've all ready started to create her vessel.

    The last part of the thought makes you hurt all over, and you fall onto your back on the floor, having a small, delightful seasuire.

    We already said that we wanted to grab armor and a weapon from the guards. Anything else obviously useful too, like keys.

    It hasn't been two years, we just got back from the dwarven kingdom and then we got summoned to this human city.

    Any way to get access to regeneration healing for our arm in this setting? Resurrection has been named as not existing, I recall.

    I guess we can think about this later, for now, take the useful shit from the KO'd guards and escape to a more secure location.

    Someone hasn't been paying attention to the threads. It totally has. We had a timeskip.

    Looks like talking sense into a god will have to wait for a bit, trouble's coming.
    Check the down guards for weapons and keys, look for hiding places. Wait in cell if we have the key, jump them if they check inside.

    You have got to be kidding me.

    It was blatantly because he was bored and wanted amusement. Stop acting a retard.

    Its gonna look awfully bad if we are spotted with the guard's armor and weapon. Lets just sneak out, that way they won't know what actually happened and it won't look so bad for our town.

    One of the guards has a billy club, you scoop it up before heading out into the hall and the opposite direction of the footsteps. You round another corner, and head up the steps leading out a back door into the moonlight. There are no guards out here, but you hear people talking. Your gauntlet is likely at the front desk of the tiny holding area. This is not the cities main jail, it is where people wait it seems for public punishments such as floggings, beheadings etc. right before their sentence.

    Autosaging, perhaps we should move to '7.5', eh firstquest?

    And you have not been paying attention either, we reset to the point in the story before the timeskip because people were bitching.
    >> Anonymous 10/27/09(Tue)01:25 No.6451675
    No, that didn't happen because we decided we didn't want to be force to become a paladin, so firstquest went back to when we had our choice.

    Move slow and stealthily to the area. Dodging trouble till we have our gauntlet.

    One request now, we need 6 more.

    Look for a way out town. We can come back for the gauntlet later. We don't want to kill any guards if we don't have to, its not their fault if they are supposed to watch a gauntlet.

    ( Yes making a new thread in just a moment, and please people I'm doing these for fun and enjoyability lets try to not get all up in eachother's biznaz. Yes the fast forward was "Retconned" because I did not explain what it is to become that goddesses "Boy toy" very well. And many people didn't like the outcome. It also felt like a cop out on my part, because my creative juices were lacking, as I expected the vampire storyline to last much longer.)

    Why don't we just go back to the vampire story line then? There was quite a few people who didn't want to attack the vampire there, im guessing those are the same people who didn't wanna us to become a paladin.

    That's a little too far back for me, although we could've dealt with it a little more elegantly, I like where we are now.

    Listen, we made a bad choice and now we are paying for it. Life is kinda full of em lol.

    Question, I don't want to disrupt the new thread with it, but did we ever manage to check on the status of the barmaid from before our trip to dwarven lands? I missed one quest but it seemed we were pretty much interrupted before we had a chance to look into it.
