    Hey there, /tg/! I know almost nothing about anything, so I figured, what would be a better idea than trying to run a quest? First I'll haphazardly railroad you into a character and situation, and then I'll give you the illusion of choice for a while, sound good? Good!

    RAILROADED PART: You are a hunter whether you like it or not, you are also in the woods, hunting. You have three dogs: Huey, Duey, and Louie, although you can rename them if you like.

    PART WHERE YOU CHOOSE: Stats! We'll be using D&D stats and generally going by 3.5e, but you're a lousy peasant hunter, and you get to roll 3d6 for each rather than 3-out-of-4d6! HUZZAH! Also, you don't get to look at the numbers and pick one for each stat! Wait...this WAS supposed to be a choice section, so...if you call out which stat you want to roll for in the post you roll it, I'll use it as long as it's not yet used. If there are two or more of the same stat rolled, I'll use the better one, so if you're quick, you can get one good stat maybe. Regardless, first six 3d6 rolls will be assigned to stats.

    I apologize for any confusion, but I did lay out the rules without ambiguity as to which ones would supersede others (e.g. the term 'regardless'). The point here was to create a quest with an 'average but still random' character rather than a pre-built hero.

    >> Papayawhip Spandexthrasher 09/25/11(Sun)14:59 No.16421948
    They do, in fact. Collars, and leashes (about 30 ft long). The leashes are currently ON, but they can be taken OFF very quickly. Huey is trained as a tracker more, whereas the other two, while trackers in their own right, are more geared to chasing and mauling. Huey seems to notice a strong trail going towards where you heard the laughter before, but he hasn't given you any signs, meaning it's not anything you would want to hunt. So far he hasn't picked up any other trails.

If several people choose the same thing, the best one gets taken. Let's say 3 people out of those first 6 roll for STR. Best one gets taken for STR. But the other ones still get used for other stats.

    It's...flawless. Must have been caught a few hours ago, doesn't smell even the least bit gamey. The fur is ripped just a tiny bit where the bar hit the pelt...your old woman can put in a few stitches and no one will ever know the difference. You head for the stream...neither of your other two traps have anything in them, but...the loam all around the stream is scuffed up, and you see footprints...not exactly human, a bit smaller and more delicate, it seems. A tiny glint in the loam catches your eye.

    Your wife is a little smarter and a deal less superstitious than you, but clearly she was still dumb enough to marry you. (Ouch.)

    She says it looks like it belongs to some lady because it's very delicate, and that you mustn't pawn it, that would be terrible, why, she once had a ring of real pure bronze that...so on, so on. She makes you a delicious stew and eventually says you should go to Athens with it tomorrow, ask the guards if any of the ladies have reported a lost token of some sort. She is just canny enough to suggest that you tell them a friend found it, and you're in town anyways so you're asking for him...and to keep it hidden. You'll get a better reward if you bring it directly to the lady herself somehow.

    Also, she gives you a shopping list...with some extra items on it in case you actually DO get a reward.

    Unfortunately, your wife was in a bit of a thrifty mood, and the stuff on the list would cost about 10 copper. You find a tavern first and drink a copper away to Athena and Apollo.

    You use the remaining six coppers to get most of the important stuff on the list, hoping your wife will not be angry. You'll be well-fed at least, and really, is soap such a big deal? All that fuss and expense for something that doesn't even fill your stomach.

    On the way home you find some really lovely flowers, oddly enough. Strangely, it's like the narrator had been inexplicably thinking that you were going to try to find them, like a hivemind.

    You arrive home and she's very cheerful, happy about the flowers, happy about the trading you did, tells you not to worry about failing to find anything out about the ring. Clearly, this is her way of apologizing for being snippy before. She doesn't even berate you over the lack of soap.

    There's still a little time left before nightfall if you wanted to hunt, or you could turn in now and get an early start tomorrow.

    A bunch of bathing nymphs and, in the middle of them, a tall, proud, and slender huntress. She seems...more than human. Also really, really naked. You're filled with awe, fear, knowledge that they'll hear you if you try to run, and large amounts of DO WANT.

    Of course, being a goddess, as soon as she stops focusing on washing for even a split second, she senses that you're there.

    And is pissed.

    For some reason that post just showed up right now.

    The water hits you. You close your eyes for a moment, waiting...

    Hmm. You don't seem to be transformed into a hind. Are your dogs rending at you?

    Huey is watching the nymphs curiously and wagging his tail a bit.
    Duey is looking at you and barking.
    Louie is scratching behind his ear.

    Artemis the one and only is standing there on the bank, quivering in rage and listening to your babble, and generally staring you down.

    But she doesn't throw any more magic water. The ring is clenched tightly in your hand, and she looks like she would like to grab it, but doesn't.

    She tells you to put it down immediately, and tells her least prestigious nymph to pick it up, wrapped in a leaf, and go wash it off downstream.

    It occurs to you that Artemis really, really despises men. It also occurs to you that the ring is probably the only thing that kept you from dying a few seconds ago.

    Well, isn't this a complicated predicament. Anger Artemis by keeping the ring, or risk your life even more by putting it down? Or maybe you should try to talk things out again, since that worked so well with the guard.

    You oblige her, and toss it towards the ground.
    Louie goes for it but Duey, the fastest, beats him to it, nearly swallows it, and spits it out on the ground, giving you a reproachful glance for throwing him something non-edible.

    The youngest nymph looks relieved that the dog-slobber has sterilized it of man, and bends over in an unintentionally fan-servicey way tor retrieve it with the leaf. Artemis gives her a kick and she skitters off to wash it in the stream.

    Artemis then gives you another piercing glare, while you try not to give her chest a piercing glare.

    "Very well, mortal. I will give you an opportunity to pray to your god."

    >Zeus, but he's probably too busy impregnating something
    >Apollo, but he probably took your offering before as an insult, he's very vain. Unfortunate since his little sister idolizes him to a creepy extent.

    You drink heartily.
    You maintain your wits.
    You gain a permanent +1 to CHA. it is now at 7 (Comparable to a tolerable troll).

    Artemis is glaring at Dionysus hard enough to make even him get serious.

    "Hey, I didn't catch your name, hunter...anyways, time to go!"

    Impulsively, and probably stupidly, he commands the vines. They wrap around Artemis, in the shape of a traditional bondage rope thing, courtesy of Pan's training. Pan and Dionysus are best pals. Pan likes to drink and joke, Dionysus likes to make grapes, wine, and to be appreciated.

    Anyways, Dionysus high-tails it out of there, bringing your dogs and you along sort of haphazardly tangled in vines. He can run pretty fast; he's friends with Hermes too.

    It's pretty clear from his running that Artemis can come as close to killing him as is possible for a god, though.

    Doesn't stop him from pausing a second to wink stylishly at one of the stunned nymphs, though.

    Well...to be honest...really, no one bothers worshiping me besides drunks and people who own vineyards. This is really my first, uh, violent intervention, you could say. That's really an idea though, you know? I'd summon a sea monster but it wouldn't really...uh...live very long here.

    Artemis fine silver hind gets drunk off its ass on grass-wine and falls, leaving her to emerge dripping wet and pinkish from a wine river. A few of her faithful(ish) nymphs, following along, "accidentally" swallow some wine and become too inebriated to help in the chase. However, she's still fast, even on foot.

    Dionysus seems to be tiring just slightly from his exertions. He clearly is not a really powerful or active god.

    Also, Dionysus hands you a refilling wine-skin.

    Dionysus sweats and pretends he didn't hear you mention Hades, at first. Then:

    "DEMETER! Of course! She's the one who gave up her seat in Olympos for me, she's like a mother! A really awesome hippie mother! I think she likes your wife, too...did you see those flowers you just happened to find? I'm pretty sure she's around these parts. She's the god of fields, seasons, and plants. She...she used to be real happy, before...well, let's say she hasn't been the same since all that with Persephone...mortals call it winter when she gets in one of her ruts. Still,. she's pretty cool. She even gives Pan poppy seeds sometimes. HEY! DEMETER! AUNTIE, YOU THERE?

    Demeter waves to Dionysus from a nearby field. Looking behind you, however, you see Artemis gaining ground with a furious dash, hair whipping in her face, jaw clenched, her entire form drenched in wine and wrapped around with vestiges of vines.

    You fly past Demeter, crash in a pile of pure fucking magic, and whip around to face Artemis.

    Dionysus is wearing a badass toga thing which is somehow pure white and unstained.

    Demeter kind of has a gauzy natury toga thing made out of leafy film or something, she's not really into fineries or whatever, she's a harvest and fertility god.

    Artemis is breathing through clenched teeth, tripping slightly as she runs while vines climb up her legs, and wearing nothing besides what appears to be a half-formed vine thong (Dionysus laughing his ass off and mumbling about Pan being a bro) and a lot of very fine wine.

    DEMETER: Now, now, what's all this about? Dionysus, you scoundrel, are you bothering Artemis again?

    ARTEMIS: [Seething with rage but desisting from violence out of respect for Demeter]

    DIONYSUS: I'm on PRAYER BUSINESS, Demeter. [he draws himself up proudly]

    DEMETER: [Coos over his first real prayer business, etc]

    ARTEMIS: Auntie! He...he...[speechless with rage]

    Demeter suggests you all sit down for some relaxing tea while the mortal explains himself to her.

    Demeter tries to get you to talk and to explain.

    You tell her what happened.
    Artemis takes an angry gulp of tea and coughs a bit.
    "I do hope it's not too strong for you, dear." Demeter coos.
    Artemis looks a bit offended and downs some more. "Not at ALL."

    Dionysus chokes a bit into his cup.

    Demeter hears the tale and laughs.
    "See, now, just a simple misunderstanding, although this fellow must have wonderful, or else abyssal, luck to encounter so many immortals in one day. Let's let it go at that, shall we?"

    Artemis is not to be so easily disturbed, and it looks like she might be an angry drunk as well...


    It seems that wine was literally god-tier.

    "Oh, dearie, don't be so difficult, he's a married man, he won't be doing any boasting."

    She points to Dionysus who suddenly looks very sober and innocent.

    At first Artemis looks appalled as the suggestion of working with Dionysus, and festivities in general. After a little more tea, she warily agrees. She falls to rambling about how her brother doesn't appreciate her skill while gesturing over-enthusiastically to Dionysus. He for his part rants on about how much Apollo sucks.

    Their festival planning turns into plans to out-shine Apollo's games, so he will appreciate Artemis and stop looking down on Dionysus.

    Demeter says you should really go now...but she's sure Dionysus will be in touch with his cleric soon.

    Where do you go?

    He'd need Pan to throw a proper party, and everyone would get hit on with Pan around.

    The third trap trapped a nymph's leg. It's broken, bleeding, etc. It's kind of like a small bear trap but higher off the ground, looks like it got her knee.

    She's not dead or anything due to being magical, but is weak from bleeding and weeping softly. Looks like Artemis and the others forgot her in the chase and subsequent events.

    You go hunting for a bit, everything seems to still be absent due to the colossal supernatural jimmy-rustling of the previous day. However, you eat some bread and so does the wife...you purchased it before. You were going to look for berries when you realized your vineyard already had a few bunches of ripe grapes!

    So you called it a night.

    [wife's name here] lol. I totally heard that like in Portal.

    Sweet. She won't kill us in our sleep.

    ...Nah, better let the boss be; he sounded busy and we cannot rely on his intervention whenever this shit happens. I have a feeling We are now playing a larger game than "hunt rabbits in woods all day, erry day" now.

    I guess we'll leave The missus to watch over the nymph, and then we'll get back to huntan and forragan. Like the previous anon said about the nymphs and being vegans and whatever.

    I guess when we wake up the next day, we should ask the nymph what can be done about Artemis. If she won't take her back, I guess she'll have to live in the woods near our house? As a nymph, she probably wouldn't wanna live in a house anyway, and it would be strange for the wife.

    well we
    After consulting with the nymph, we should tend our vineyard/commune with our brogod, see to our traps(ohgodsnonewnymphspleez), and any other tasks we need to be doing. We'll either be dead by nightfall, or, we'll have something to do.

    Works for me. The nymph is still asleep, snuggling about and getting nymph-presence all over the bed while your wife eyes her warily.

    Oh dear. Hmm. Look the question at the wife. She'll prolly say yes, since she doesn't want nymph all over her beds. If all is good, clear throat. or touch hand gently or somewhere equally far from genitals.

    Nothing in the traps AGAIN. Sheesh.
    Dionysus says not to worry about the whole nymph house bed thing, but he sounds a little worried himself. He says it's probably best not to just cast her out into the woods again before having some long conversation and arriving at some understandings about what should and should not be mentioned to Artemis.

    You now have a decent amount of grape bunches, roll 2d8 for total.

    Also, the nymph woke up, said something about very soft leaves, freaked out, jumped out of bed, apologized to your wife, ran outside, and ran smack into you, causing the grapes to fall everywhere. Most of them are still good though, you've only lost 1d4 bunches total.

    You have five bunches of grapes. The nymph is freaking out a little still at having taken charity from a male human, having been inside a house, etc, and is considering going and confessing everything to Artemis. However, she's also apologetic to you, and you realize her planned course of action would probably be rather ruinous to all parties.

    What do?

    Awesome. I'l try to make it.

    As for the Nymphs' damn-fool plan...Tell her that that sounds like a great idea, only you're troubled by Artemis' propensity for doling out the harshness when things offend her. Ask her if she's *sure* she wants to fall from Artemis' favor and get us mortals dead. Rolling char.

    She is now afraid of the woods.
    She apologizes profusely and begs her to let her remain in your vineyard.

    Your wife has followed her out and looks like she feels sorry for her but is definitely still unhappy about her nudity.

    No kidding, the wine wore off but he's asking like he has...well, maybe still INT 9, but like, WIS 13 instead of 6. Eventually....eventually.

    So, the wife was gonna like offer some clothes or whatever, but this kind of keeps the nymph from distress by further violating her decrees...plus, more blatant fanservice!

    The nymph has to have this whole modesty thing explained by your wife, after which she goes off into the vineyard and comes back with a bikini she apparently made by sticking leaves to her skin with grape juice and layering them like chainmail. Your wife gives up on any improvement after this, and I'm going out on a limb and saying you probably have no objections.

    You still have some time left. Try out your new abilities? Hey, maybe you have some kind of WILD MAGIC or something!

    You sneak closer. You manage to miss from pretty close. You release the hounds.

    You fire again, straight through the heart even though it was quartering away* from you. A splendid shot. It falls almost before the vines shoot from the arrow ro entangle it in a helpless bundle.

    That never used to happen...

    *"Quartering away" is a term hunters use, means it's facing mostly way from you but you can still see its shoulder somewhat. Very difficult shot. Better than quartering towards, in which the shoulder-blade covers the heart totally.

    The Greek myth, hunting knowledge, and general history stuff I just remember from reading various books, wiki entries, or whatever.

    The D&D stuff is just what I remember from reading the 3.5e handbook and some of the online resources.

    The only looking up of stuff I did was to find an orison and for the names of the vineyard-haver professions.

    The rest just kind of came to my mind based ons tuff you guys said.
