    184 KB "Deathwish" quest 8 Firstquest 10/28/09(Wed)21:34 No.6476698  
    Last time:
    ( Due to Deathwish feeling pretty stale, but wanting to give it at least a little closure, tonight will be the last night for wrapping up The ol' BlackSmith's Story for the time being. Been a lot of fun for me at least.)

    You've made your way into the main hall of the courthouse, and can see that fat bastard who's put you in the middle of this mess waddling between a group of 5 elite guards. It looks like they are heading for a set of heavy doors that lead back into his office.

    You're ( Somewhat badly) dressed as a guard, allowing you to pass for one at a distance, but on a close inspection, or removing your helmet you'll easily be found out.

    Going to confront him now? Try to escape the city? Another idea? What do you wish to do?

    All 5 of the guards look pretty well armored and armed with spears and short swords, if they are the Lord of this city's personal guard, it would be a tough fight, but you've been in plenty of those by now, so it is a toss up, but far from an assured victory.

    You're unsure if you could manage the sun burst spell, but as you think about killing that twisted, greedy bastard, your hand starts to feel a little less "weak" as it was when you let that vampire go.

    You figure if you could get a couple good punches into him, you might be able to get the goddess who blessed your arm to lend you more strength.

    You take a deep breath, and walk calmly after the group, they have a big lead on you, so by the time you reach them walking calmly you're barely able to get a hand on the door before it locks.

    You throw the door open and step inside, just pass the door, the group and the tubby Lord all look at you as if very confused. And..

    ...Your hand begins to hurt like hell. You can hear low hissing noises echoing out from under the guard's helmets. One even jerks his off his head and lets it slam to the floor, the helmet smashes and dents and cracks the marble.

    Your blood suddenly runs cold as you realize they all know who you are. They are looking at you as if they can smell it. All of his guards were vampires. You back up against the door, your head is telling you this is a very bad idea. But your arm is demanding their lives or yours.

    You stare at the round man who takes a seat calmly at his desk and grins at you, with a pair of sharp fangs you knew were not there yesterday, they seem to company his new confidant attitude.

    "Well hello Mr.Bronson. Nice of you to join us. I was so afraid I'd have to send an Assassin to kill you in that cell tonight, but it looks like I get to see you die first hand."

    You pull out your hammer, and your shield, your reckless lust for their destruction makes your arm feel whole, you know your sunburst will likely only work once unless you really manage to put your heart into it, but you decide this is all or nothing, and the big bastard is going down with you if you go.

    You yell rushing at his desk, holding your hammer high, and ready to let your fist join in if needed, trying to fend off spears if they come rushing at you with your shield.

    Lets see how it goes..

    Okay, you feel a spear bite into your leg, and it will hinder your speed, but the bastard has to lean back to avoid getting smashed in the teeth with your hammer, you feel a spear break on your shield as well, as you barrel through the crowd. Things are messy, but for right now the momentum is swinging in your direction.

    After leaning back the tubby vampire flopped onto his back on the floor, apparently he did not gain their agility, and it having trouble getting up. You can feel the vampires moving behind you, you are glad none of them are as strong as their lord you killed just the day before.

    Your next move?

    He's a useless tub of lard, vampire or not. Grab him and use him as a body shield between you and the guards. They may be vampires, but they can't possibly spear THROUGH their fat friend, even if they had the balls to.

    rolled 85 = 85

    You decide to follow the rule your father always taught you when it came to blacksmith and life in general.
    If at first you don't succeed, swing your hammer harder.

    You leap ontop of the lardy bastard, letting the vampires have your backside, one grabs your arm and you can feel teeth dig in through the leather and bite down on your flesh. So you raise your metal fist up and bring it down on the bastards face. He looks as if he had never actually felt pain before. And you feel intense satisfaction despite the pain as you see one of his eyes pop out of his eye socket.

    You raise your fist back once more as you feel hands trying to pull you away..

    Their hands try to pull you off of him, and the vampire gnawing on your flesh arm hurts, but he can't seem to suck your blood, or get a good grip as you thrash about, sending your fist down into the fat vampires face over and over again. His face does not heal from the wounds as your enchanted and magical hand rivals silver against his kind.

    Finally after a very brutal nasty punch you see his lower jaw tear away from his head, and splat onto the ground, he is failing, and fighting as a child would with his pudgy fingers with wicked nails trying to scratch you, but he is not yet dead.

    You tear away from the vampires and with the help of your strength rune jerk the bastard up to his feet, putting him as a shield between you and them. One of them laughs and actually DOES put a spear through the bastards massive gut. It grazes your side as you barely side step it.

    Much more damage and the noble will be dust. You have a nasty stab in your leg, a cut on your side and a bite on your good arm. The vampires spear is stuck in your vampire shield. Next action?

    There is a long moment of quiet and your heavy breathing. Apparently he isn't dead as you hold him up by the back of his shirt, but from the sounds he makes and his tongue lulling around in his mouth, he is in too much pain to avoid it. It seems becoming a vampire just a day ago, he's unable to ignore such things.

    You think about what would happen if you let him live. Or if you managed to escape. Likely the whole village would suffer. Fine, you'll kill them all and take the punishment if no one trusts your word, or die trying. Either way, no one innocent will suffer on your account. You tense up ready to finish him off, managing to use his girth to load a silver bolt into your crossbow, after clicking it out of your gauntlet. Time to find out what they are made off...

    You let go of his hair and quickly grab his upper jaw, by the teeth, loosened and with so much falling weight behind it coupled with how hard your enchanted hand can pull, you tear the top part of his head away from the lower.

    You watch as his flailing, fat body falls forward onto his desk, sending the vampire with the spear inside of it stumbling forward. The desk shatters into bits and splinters of wood as the body of the vampire begins to turn to dust, leaving nothing but his torn, over sized clothing.

    You try to use the shock to take out the vampire who was off balance and fire your cross bow. He's wounded as the silver bolt catches him near the neck just below the chin. As soon as it sinks in he is tumbling away trying to tear the burning object out.

    The bastard you wanted dead is destroyed. You're outnumbered, but still breathing. The vampires lunge for you in a collective jab with their spears.

    Next move?

    As you see the spears rushing in your direction, most of them will pound into your chest if you do not move, you roar and attempt to leap up above them or out of the way as you swing your hammer, trying to knock them out of their path, anything you can do.

    You rant and yell as you rise, readying the only offensive spell you know in the back of your mind. Knowing it would only stun the group or kill one outright if focused on him. You hope this isn't your last moment.

    Well, you could use your arm/shield to deflect one of the spears into the path of the others, but with them jabbing at you, it'd be pretty hard. Though the shield will do wonders.

    You were trying to yell something to cast fear into their undead hearts as you feel all four of the spears dig into your body. One in your upper thigh, two in your guts and one in your shoulder. It hurts more then you can explain and the mocking smirks filled with unfriendly fangs stare at you. They press you back until you feel yourself pressed against the wall. The one you managed to hit with the bolt stands, pulling with the bolt free from his neck, but the wound not closing due to the silver that caused it.

    "Keep him pinned the fucker is MINE!"

    Once these spears are pulled free your bleeding will be profuse. Things are looking grim. The vampire begins to walk up to you, bearing his fangs, he tears away your helmet.

    You grin, as blood rolls down from your mouth. The vampire walking up to you stops, as if your grin almost bothers him.

    You cough, and think about your life, It could of ended that night at the Tower, you could of fallen asleep and died with everyone else. But your fate was much more, you had adventures, you found a love, you managed to make yourself famous and keep death from innocent people, instead giving life back to them, and to a town that would of been abandoned.

    All of the vampires stare at you as you start to laugh, and hold up your hand, it begins to glow a bright white, a heat that does not burn you. You are only close enough to punch the closest vampire in the face and roar with joy as his head is torn blown apart to dust.

    "I've got a Deathwish! And granting it means YOU GET TO COME TOO!"

    You turn your hand to the bastards and let the spell fly, crying out in your mind to that goddess that you have the same goals here, and if she wished to help you, now was the time...

    I hope we live now, but we have to wish of death to hit them hard enough to defeat the evil and have a shot at survival.
    We lived well. I hope we continue to live well, but at the least we need to die well and take these fuckers down with us.

    rolled 85 = 85

    The room is filled with light, and you can hear their short screams as flesh burns in front of you, as they all turn to ash. It is an impressive display, far beyond anything you might actually be able to pull off on your own. Putting everything, your heart and soul into that attack however, as left you feeling drained. It felt like it was all you, as if the Goddess you've been jaded to barely lifted a finger to save you.

    You slump down onto your back, watching ashes and embers floating around the room. You reach up to pull one of the spears free, but have not the strength, as your hand falls back to your side. Your heart feels as if it is beating slower... and slower... you feel so very tired. So very tired. But you continue to grin to spite it all.

    ( Secret Roll is Secret!)

    You think about the town and your heart seems to start beating a little faster. Then the Dwarf king and his daughter, your lover. You think about the hunters who fought along side you, and how you might of done a lot more then you had to do. You think about that beautiful axe, about your arm. About how even if you die they will still be around. You seem to be keeping yourself awake however... maybe... maybe someone will find you.

    As you start to feel cold, it is apparent that no one will be coming to your rescue in this small office after hours, as alarm bells still ring outside to hunt you in the streets. You still keep smiling however, even as the cold begins to creep up your neck, and once more your heart begins to slow.

    It is hard to move your gauntlet, but it does, respond as you dip your finger in blood. Desperation and perhaps even lunacy begins to set in as the shock of death grips you. You try to draw a heart outside your pool of blood, and write "Yezta" inside. You reach over and write in very bad writing "sorry". The only real pain you begin to feel is that you will never see her again.

    Your head hangs, and you think about the dragon. Perhaps he knew you'd be dead even then. Perhaps there is more after death, more adventures... you smile.. perhaps you will see her again. The pain fades away, and soon, everything follows with it.

    Your Deathwish has finally been granted.

    I gotta say, it has been a fun ride.
    I've felt more attached to this Quest than most.
    I inadvertently triggered the memetic mutation of awesome by responding to another anon who wanted to run away for help rather than go in after the kids preferring 'survivalquest' over going to the tower alone, saying we'd have to call it 'deathwishquest'.

    >>We'd have to rename this Deathwishquest.
    >Bronson approves of DeathwishQuest, by going after them alone.

    Bill Murray picked up the idea and ran with it, and soon others picked up the theme, leading to the Awesome that has been the Blacksmith Charles Bronson and his DeathwishQuest, and I'm proud to have had a little part in that.

    I would like to thank Firstquest for all his work on this quest series, and thank all my fellow anon and namefags alike for making DeathwishQuest awesome.
    It'll be interesting to see what else might develop in the future.

    ( Okay, time to crack the knuckles and get going then.)
    It was a bright day, with the sun shining high in the sky, and a warm summer breeze when they took his body out to the funeral pyre. Upon finding him, the guards cried out as they realized their fault. That day was recorded as a great man dying to spare a whole nation the pain of being manipulated and lead by those who only wished their destruction.

    Standing at the front of the crowd, is Yezta, crying into her father's shoulder. Charles's body lays atop the pile of wood, with a strange decoration around it. Around the wood is piles of weapons.. swords, shields, bits of armor, all crossed in shapes and designs. Some of the items were heirlooms some were just bought that day, some were crafted by the Blacksmith himself, their owners feeling that the weapon should not out live its legendary father.

    After a long watchful quiet, men spoke about him at length, their time with him, his sacrifices, some were stirring, some were tall tales told by men who had never met him. Some were sung by bards, true to the word of his deals with dragons and deathblows to monsters. Some were lies, singing of adventures he's never had. All in all, no matter what, he became a legend in only a year as word of mouth through travelers and taverns his tale would be told through the world.

    When Despair's End was handed to the dwarf princess, it light up with fire and lightning to such an extent that the crowds watching and listening were pushed away. She walked up and touched the pyre with the axe, and set it all ablaze.

    While he was a simple blacksmith just over a year ago. He was a hero now. For the first time, one every race, from orc, to elf, to Dwarf had to recognize.

    -One year later-

    Where his pyre was burned, a statue now stands. Its no hidden fact, that some laugh about that the statue is much more handsome then he was, much taller, and his arms much bigger, his hair more combed and beautiful. Yet it was a statue dedicated to a Blacksmith, facing the town proudly with a hammer in his hand resting on his shoulder. Still people come to leave a weapon at the foot of the statue, and say a prayer, thinking the weapon blessed after he looked over it for a night.

    The Orcs and humans stood together well, and with its corruption purged the neighboring city thrived alongside his home instead of tearing each other apart. The gauntlet now called "Deathwish" is kept in a secret vault below the town, and has taken on a legend all its own.

    The dwarf guard assigned to him live with Yezta, who.. to everyone's shock has had a child. Even as she carries the little girl around she still wears her armor and weapons. One of her prized hammers were sent up in flames with her lover, but it is okay... she has a new one, Shit Ender. She always thought the naming of it was silly... but can't help but love it now and smile whenever she calls it so.

    Raz and his crew still live here, in the City that was once a town. He still talks about the time you saved his ass from the guards, and has no memory of the vampire who took him home. He honestly thinks in a matter of hours you took him home, snuck in and out of the city and killed the Lord and his vampires. He claims to this day you were no man at all, but some sort of "demi-god of "Badass". Some people are buying into the religion.

    The Temple North of the town, once a twisted tower, shines as if some beacon of light. People go there often, and the church is gaining many members as they claim the Blacksmith was one of theirs. The truth was so much more complicated, but if the priestess knew, she did not claim otherwise.

    It is strange however... people have noticed the head woman of the church a beautiful elf, has never taken part in any battles, and has never fallen ill with infection or sickness, but it seems she has lost her left arm, some say through some magic or blessing... she can still move things as if it were there...

    Either of those sounds kickass.

    I think the fact that you're going to run a game on /tg/ based off a /tg/ created setting is something unprecedented. (I can't think of anything else where that's happened in the past 14 months that I've been here.) And very cool.

    How about for the next time we do a quest in this world, a "random" person in the world gains a deathwish from the spirit of the blacksmith to ether fulfill a specific quest or smite evil till evil smites them. This way you could just kinda do a one night character and show lots of different perspectives in the world.

    ( If you all had talked to or asked the Elf bitch more, that would of been explained, so I'll go ahead and explain it. He basically has been living in that tower for ages, just being a lich, collecting things and killing adventurers with his mind powers o' death that made people fall asleep then bleed out their brains.

    Long story short that cult of Vampire/undead bastards showed up in this world and told any undead or "Evil" monsters they could find. "You help us, you get to live. You don't you get fucked with everyone else.".

    He told them he'd help, by sacrificing those children, drinking up your town's souls, and making his aura huge enough to murder anyone not all ready dead for miles and miles around. Creating the perfect place to begin their army.

    That was amazing, Firstquest. Bronson died as he lived: being a total badass.

    My only regret is that I didn't finish this in time for the final episode. I'll keep working on it and post the completed one (hopefully) when you start running your next quest, whatever it may be. Thanks for the adventure!

    Yeah, I saw my ideas being used. Just like in Evil Quest, Bad Guy Quest, and Corp Quest. This was a well-run quest, not a railroad.

    The closest thing to it came early on, with the nudging for us not to be an amoral asshole. Which was a good thing to do on your part.

    My only regret is not being able to got totally overboard with the runes. When elf bitch started getting bloodthirsty on us I immediately wanted to pay the silver dragon a visit. From what we've seen so far a rune needs a god and a price to pay for engraving it into something. The silver dragon would've provided both of these if we were successful; next time elf bitch popped up we could've been like: "rune of fate, fuck your shit." But I still like the way this all turned out.

    Some of yours (the favors from powerful beings is going to play a decent role), and some of the sword creation in Evil Quest. Mortals can't just enchant things, although they can make things that are worthy of enchantment and kickass even without it, and even powerful beings require a sacrifice to make something permanent and powerful in the world.

    Yeah, I actually intended to make the Blacksmith show up. Make shit good enough to save the day, and then get out of dodge. If he trained to be a paladin at some point, maybe do some heal-an-and fitan. But everyone really wanted to do much more then that, and take matters into their own hands.

    I actually had the Silver Sword being reforged as a weapon for the priestess, the King's Weapon, The Orcs weapon ( He wanted a special one to get revenge for something I can't spill the beans on.) And smoothing things over with the nobles was going to be letting one noble defeat the fat boy's Vampire buddy in a duel to the death with a finely crafted silver Rapier so the good noble could actually beat him.

    Well I noticed it too. And I think the next quest will be a little different. In Wild Cards, I think I want to have a system. Ideas help and you can win against a stronger opponent even if rolls are bad, but I think that I want to throw out Plot armor.

    I think if I let everyone know the Main char won't win just because the story is about him/her, people might play a little smarter.. I give /tg/ credit, because when they want to they are cool guys.

    I like that. Just ensure that it's not too complex. Deity Quest screwed that up, from what I saw (didn't look like the system was even needed with what people were doing).

    Might want to have a few ways to keep the quest going even if the main character dies--backup characters, the story actually about the gun rather than the man, or something.

    Was the plan from the start for the Elf Goddess to become the kind of paladin no one likes? And does this mean that as the Goddess's nature changed, did her rune as well?
    Also, how organized are the various deities, can the goddess pull an Asmodeus and actually be thrown into hell, or are they too disconnected from the world and each other to do anything about it?

    "Good" And "Bad" are Too overplayed for me. I prefer the less cliche' version of "The gray area".

    All the gods want their own damn thing. Some more then others. A god of light, or Shadow it don't mean anything.

    Lets say the god of light wants to destroy the world so there is no more evil. Shadow just wants to keep it the way it is, knowing he wouldn't exist at all without good guys.

    So while the good guy has good intentions she's still retarded and doing the wrong thing. The bad guy is doing the "Right" thing, but he's still evil. People can't suffer if EVERYONE is dead. Then its just boring.

    >> Firstquest 10/29/09(Thu)03:32 No.6480674
    The rune on the arm kind of began it all. I didn't expect people to go right for the blood, and carve it into their arm, but I figured they would hold the sword while doing anything, or tie it to their hand.

    I actually intended the sword to become the conductor and as it kept killing evil things, in Bronson's hands or the Elf bitch's it would begin to gain sentience and start to change the wielder into the Goddess's host.

    Instead, his arm did the job, and I made up a little bit of lore using it. And just kinda went that direction with it.

    And No I had planned on her eventually becoming over zealous and people choosing to go along with it, then at the far end just before its ALMOST TOO LATE realize her plan is to burn the world, not save it. then either have to stop her, or decide to let the mother fucker burn.
