    16 KB Dungeon Denizens Quest, part 2 Marit !!A9MSDRJaEJd 11/18/10(Thu)21:11 No.12847934  
    My name is Marit. I was a peasant worker until my lands went to war and I was conscripted as a soldier. We were soundly defeated on the field of battle, but when the smoke cleared I found I was still clinging to life. I dragged myself to a nearby ruins seeking shelter to rest my injuries, but it appears this place is already inhabited.

    You can read the last thread about my ordeal here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12839817/

    After a brief and indirect encounter with the denizens of this place, I lay down to sleep, only to wake up strapped to a table and relieved of my clothing. What followed was a very unsettling series of encounters with a Goblin, a Slime, and even a Beholder. They didn't seem to want to eat me, which only unsettles me more.

    But the important thing is they finally got me my clothes back, and now I've retreated to relative safety to redress.

    What really makes me nervous is that these creatures act so NORMAL. Too normal.
    Maybe they were human once. Is there any other explanation? Monsters are supposed to act like... monsters.
    I've always tried to keep an open mind about some things, but these are the kind of creatures that when you were a kid you would have checked under your bed for. The kind who would jump out from the darkness and scream--

    The oak chest is far too heavy for me to lift, let alone throw! I'm still recovering from my injuries, anyway.
    Instead I decide to wisely back up out of the range of the stretchy limbs.

    Godwin enters the room. I never thought I'd be relieved to see a Goblin.

    The cabinet doors -- along with the black space between them -- drop off the cabinet itself and land on the table. It's very bizarre and I can't quite explain what I'm seeing.

    It's creepy, but I've already been in that room before. Maybe you should catch up on my previous adventures here. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12839817/

    I come back into the mess hall, and I can hear voices softly to the west, and approaching, high-pitched voices from the east. I think they're the voices I first heard here, in that eastern room with the beds.
    Should I stick around to see, or should I head west?
    Or maybe just attempt an escape up the stairs and skip this "meeting" all together?
    >> Anonymous 11/18/10(Thu)22:31 No.12849048

    Head west, occasionally check back to see if the guys from the east are close behind.

    All these monsters have been fairly friendly, we may as well go to the meeting and THEN decide if we want to leave.

    Perhaps you should stay for the meeting. They seem to still be deciding what to do with you. If they're keeping you captive, then if you were to attempt escape they'd be a lot less favorably inclined, and if they're letting you free you'll be able to leave anyway.

    Wait a bit for the high-pitched voices to emerge. I suppose we'll have to meet them anyway, it might as well be on a one-on-one (or, in this case, one-on-two) basis.

    I step into the throne room, and a slew of monsters turn to stare at me. When I was a kid and we were having work tutors come in to satisfy quota, I used to come to class late, so it's a situation I'm used to. But not with monsters.

    In addition to Bob (or was it Ben), Godwin, and Shel, there's also an orc in an oversized metal helmet, and -- wait, what? Is she...?
    >"Oh good, you're here. Not everyone's shown up yet, but we might as well go ahead and begin. My name's Hedda, and I'd like to welcome you on behalf of everyone here at Darkhave."

    Hedda's a... a Hound Archon?

    Hedda approaches and shakes my hand firmly with both of hers. Her fuzzy hands are warm. I feel a little reassured. Just a little.

    "You're an Archon."
    >H: "Ah, I didn't think you'd know."
    "My dad used to tell me stories about Archons all the time. I thought you guys were supposed to be like... super good."
    >H: "I am good!"
    "Well... um, then if you don't mind me asking, what's with all the monsters? Like... wouldn't you be mortal enemies with a Beholder?"
    >H: "Normally, maybe. But good isn't always achieved in the murder of evil things. I take in monsters that I believe can be saved, and I try to keep an eye over them, like Ben here."
    "I thought his name was Bob."

    I'm not too enthralled about staying in a monster-infested dungeon, but if a Hound Archon is here then at the least I feel a little safer. I may be able to last at least a few days, just to get me on my feet.

    >Hedda: "Okay, the kobolds are here. Who else are we still missing?"
    >Godwin: "Umberto's out getting firewood still, I think. Aldo's sleeping and I didn't want to wake him, and uh, Myron's around here somewhere I think. And of course Manny and Gil aren't here yet."
    >Ben: "Is Rosie coming?"
    >Godwin: "Yeah, she should be here in a second."

    The orc approaches, lifting his helmet a little with a nod.

Eventually someone strong enough came through 'n' cleared the place out. Then for a long time, it was empty. That's when we showed up."

    Considering we were once a dirt farmer, we just need to find out more about this place before calling it home.

    We need to thank these people, and let them deal with the other issues of the meeting. We shouldn't be the sole reason for this meeting.

    Yes, but Marit nearly died once already. Rushing straight into battle a second time is likely to be a sure death sentence, and I don't think this stroke of luck -- a dungeon filled with NICE monsters -- is likely to hit her a second time.

    Hey, that was the place- so is the straw bed Kat and Kanoa's, and the bed with a heart carved on it Rosie's? That makes sense.

    Nod and agree, for now?

    By the way, how long was it since you last ate? If it was since before the battle, it's probably time to ask if they have any food around. No point recovering from wounds to die from starvation.

    That's it, we're making some kind of friendship bracelet in the future.

    That bed looked good enough for us to sleep in before we encountered these monsters, plus it's close to the forge if we want to sneak in and investigate.

    And yes, we need food.

    So exposing the dungeon isn't a good idea, but what if some of them went out as an adventuring party? That would keep the others safe, while still allowing them to improve their reputation and stop monsters who are actually evil.

    But that still runs the risk of angry mobs coming after them. Then again, if the people are desperate enough, they'll look up to anyone who might save them.

    Or maybe I'm being too intrusive and this isn't the time to talk about this. It's worth considering, though.
