    12 KB Dungeon Denizens, Part 3 Weaver !!A9MSDRJaEJd 11/19/10(Fri)22:40 No.12860730  
    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 these ruins to seek shelter, only to find them already inhabited.

    The monstrous denizens that dwell here don't appear to want to eat my flesh. I find them unnerving and strange, but until I have recovered from my injuries, I have no choice but so share their company.

    You can read the first two threads about my ordeal here:

    This is the latest inhabitant and my most recent acquaintance, Umberto. I have never seen an Umber Hulk before and I can't say I have ever had any desire to see one.

    He's an enthusiastic one.

    After a hug that practically leaves me winded, he nods and heads off with his pile of firewood.

    I don't know how long I can last here.

    I straighten my hair and put the stool on top of the chair. For some reason this makes me feel a little better.

    I sit at the mess table and wait. I don't know what for.
    I don't know what to do next. I'm kind of tired and I guess I'll be spending the night, but I don't know if I should turn in yet.
    Part of me is still screaming to leave but there's a blizzard out and I know I wouldn't get far with these injuries.

    That's right. Fruit salad.
    Knowing my luck, it will probably be made of demonic fruit. Or the fruit will catch fire when I eat it. Or the bowl will turn into a monster.

    My stomach growls. I wish I wasn't hungry. Maybe I should just have a ration.

Now, he couldn't eat it himself, but he'd make it all the time whenever someone came to pay their respects. I knew him through a mutual friend, a displacer beast who somehow got their hands on a ring of intelligence so strong it would lose sleep at night over the meaning of life. Can you believe that? Anyway, I think a hero got him since then, but just as he lived on after his own death, this recipe lives on after his un-death.

    I was a soldier for about a week and saw one battle. I think "soldiering up" for me involves getting a severe headwound and bleeding a lot.

    I wait until Aldo's been moved to the next room to play, and wait a good while after I feel it's safe, before re-entering the barracks.

    Except, I suppose, for when I'm dying, I have trouble sleeping in a new, strange place. It's not a good trait for a soldier to have, but I wasn't a very good soldier.

    Rosie's not SNORING, but she makes this very faint kind of metallic wheeze every time she exhales.
    And I can hear occasional whispering interrupted every now and then by giggling from the kobolds' bed.

    Yeah, I don't want to bother the Kobolds, but I might as well get up, maybe get something to drink.

    I guess I shouldn't be so afraid. If they wanted to hurt me they would have already, and with a Hound Archon here I don't feel like it's probably going to happen. Well, not on purpose anyway. Still, I'm not very comfortable here.

    >remember we are a fuckin soldier
    Hey, fuck YOU. I think I need to make something clear here: I was a soldier for about a week. I was miserable. I fought one battle, in which I was nearly killed and witnessed an entire battlefield filled up with pain and misery and human suffering. I had no military training and I was fighting for a land my family has never been allowed to own.
    I'm not a soldier. I have no intent on spending my free time associating with that occupation.

    Rosie drags me out for breakfast, which she made specially for me. Salted bacon and eggs. It tastes fantastic, especially compared to the rations I was given over the last week.
    Over breakfast, I tell Hedda and Godwin and the others about my ideas for the facade.

    "...and so I think the best way to avoid calling attention is to change the sign outside. Not to something hostile, because it would attract as many adventurers as it would scare away. Not to something friendly and harmless and inviting, because people might take that at face value. I think the best would be something really boring that makes people think there was never, at ANY point, anything here worth stealing, killing, or robbing. "Grain silo #3" or something. You wouldn't have to actually rename the place -- it'll always be Darkhave to you -- just the sign. It would mean less trouble, I'm sure."
    >Hedda: "That's a very clever idea."
    >Godwin: "I like it."
    >Rosie: "Yay, Marit!"
    >Bob: "I dunno. This place just wouldn't feel the same without that giant skull out front."
    >Rosie: "You just don't want to agree because you're the one who'd have to reshape the sign!"
    >Bob: "Disintegration at will is a very powerful burden to bear."

    I head for my stuff, but as Rosie's arguing begins to fade behind me, I pause. DO I have anyone to go back to? Who's waiting for me? What am I going to do after this, anyway?

    I can't stay here... I can't live with these monsters... obviously, I just can't. Can I?

    And that's my story. The story of how I came to live with a bunch of monsters, here in an old, ruined dungeon we call Darkhave.

    I admit, it's a strange idea, but then, I guess I'm a strange sort of person.

    I never felt at home in my own lands, and now in the wake of war, I'm both a survivor and a deserter. I'd be an outcast. Just like Godwin, and Rosie, and all the others.
    We're all weirdos. We're all outcasts.

    The 'm' monsters I can think of with the exclusion of mind flayer and mimic- manticore, medusa, memphit, mummy, merfolk, minotaur...

    ...none of these would really fit Marit.

    But uh Weaver- thanks for an awesome quest! I'm really enjoying how this is turning out. In a weird way it reminds me more of interactive fiction, it's nice to have a quest protagonist that clearly has her own ideas of how to do things and won't... always... follow along exactly, like when a parser says 'I'm not going to do THAT' in response to a stupid line.
    >> Weaver !!A9MSDRJaEJd 11/20/10(Sat)05:36 No.12864485
    Honestly, there was no real "plan" that I had to avoid derails on. I had a few set pieces / encounters planned out, but how people reacted to them was really up in the air. I knew people would want Marit to stay at the end so it's not like I had to force the decision, the only one who really needed coaxing on the idea was Marit herself and the players took care of that pretty well, like >>12864325
    A lot of the fun in this, as opposed to say, RubyQuest, which had a more definitive structure, is just being able to set up a situation and seeing how it plays out.

    Incidentally, I wanted to point out that the whole time they were talking, Umberto had one of his four eyes held closed. Savvy players will know why.
    >> Anonymous 11/20/10(Sat)05:42 No.12864524

    Well, to be fair, Marit was already pretty confused so even with four eyes open I don't know if there would have been much change to her mental state.

    We really need to find out what language he was speaking.

    I think so far my favourite moment was in the first thread, where Bob- or is it Ben? Said that he was the one to take off her clothes and the first response was something like TAKE OFF HER CLOTHES WITH WHAT. Curious to know what'll happen next, but I'm sure however it goes it'll be pretty fun!
