Well, I haven't really seen anything like this on TG, so I might as well start something like this. You are a commoner.You're not a knight, you're not a hero, not even a soldier. You are a common peasant and it's up to you to see if you stay at the bottom or get up on the top.You are a human male called John and you live in a small village by yourself and your dog, Belix. You are a simple farmer who has a small farm that does a little fishing on the side. It's your day off today...>Go to the bar.>Stay home.>Go and find some work.>Inventory: 10 GP, extra pair of boots.
>>31352197>Go find some work
Go to the bar
Find some work.
>>31352197Catch the plague
>>31352197Go fishing you lucky piece of sht.
>>31352493>>31352401you decide that maybe getting a little bit more money under your belt would be a better idea.---"Ah, John, here for some work are ya?"An old man in a red vest sits up from his wooden rocking chair and fumbles around in his satchel."What kinda work you lookin fer?">"Dangerous work">"Challenging work">"Anything that can get my pockets a little heavier."
>>31352597>>"Anything that can get my pockets a little heavier."
>>31352771The old man nods a bit before pulling out a small flyer and giving it to you."Y'know, you ought to apply for the Red Workers. Pays pretty good and you can get out into the world."The Red Workers are is a very large company that sends workers to places that need workers fast for projects or to fill up spaces till permanent workers can be found. It can get dangerous because many companies think that they're just cheap labor, like fixing gas leaks or even doing small exterminations of monsters that are deemed too smalll for the local guard to run around to deal with. You take the flyer and open it...>WANTED: Strong MAN that can till the field for harvesting season. Will pay 20 gold up front and 20 more when the job is done.Well, it isn't fancy or anything, but it pays well. It seems that the farm is about five miles away from the village and the farmer that works there has a very bad back now a days. You know he can pay and he seems pretty nice.It looks like he wants you to come tommorrow, so it gives you enough time to walk around and enjoy the day.>Go to bar.>Go back home.>Walk around.>Other
>>31352944>Go back homeTake a seat with our dog and take pleasure in our surrounding lands. Tomorrow's going to be some hard work, best to enjoy some solitude now.
>>31352944>Go back homeChill with the dog
>>31353105>>31352992Very well.You decide that you're going to head back home and hand out with your dog.---After a good hour of walking, you find yourself in front of your house. It's okay for a peasant house, the roof looks like it needs some repairs, but it looks okay.You head inside and find your dog getting up to greet you."Hey Belix, how you doin?"Belix wags his tail and paws at the ground and looks back up at you. It looks like he wants to play.>"Want the stick boy? Go get the stick!>"No, I gotta get some rest for tomorrow."
>>31353222>>"No, I gotta get some rest for tomorrow."
>>31353222Want the stick boy? Got get the stick?
>>31353263Gonna choose this as the tie breaker here."Sorry Belix, I gotta get ready for tomorrow. Maybe when I get back I can get you a good bone to chew on."Belix's tail stops wagging and his head looks up at you before whining a bit before walking away.>Skiping past the resting part to the next day.you get up extra early and begin to walk towards the farm.You begin to walk...>Roll a 1d20 for an encounter. Low is bad, high is good.
Rolled 10>>31353532Be sure to give Belix a nice helping of whatever food we feed him and a pat on the head before heading out.
>>31353874After a little while of walking you notice a weak looking wolf walk across the path, it seems beaten and dying from lack of food. It looks to you with a broken stare before trying to limp to the other side of the road.>What now?
>>31354214Im up for having a wolf bro anybody else?
>>31354214The wolf would probably attack our dog if bring it home. I guess toss it a bit of jerky and move on.
is wolf male or female? I'd have it accompany you if we can
>>31354214Leave it, continue onwards.
>>31354214Is it female? We could try to pair her up with Belix sometime in the future, get strong wolf-hybrids.Regardless of gender, [x] Help. approach slowly and carefully, don't smile and keep low profile
>>31354362>>31354390It's a male.
>>31354436We have actual work to do in the fields, before the sun gets high in the sky. I don't want to take a day off to heal a wolf that is just going to eat somebodies livestock.Disregard wolf.
>>31354214A hungry lone wolf is a desperate dangerous wolf, we better warn people about this. Also try to avoid it.
Okay, for now we move on. But once we get to where we're supposed to be doing some work, we warn people about the wolf.
>>31354588>>31354567You try to keep your distance as the wolf just limps along. You notice that it looks like it just gave up. As you walk along, you hear one last howl before looking back to see the wolf on its side.You make it to the farm and see that the farmer is trying to make his way out of his home to greet you. He is a plump fellow with a walking cane."Ah, came for the job eh? Well, the tools are in the shed over yonder. I got yer 20 gold here before you start working. Ma wife n daughters will give you some food when lunch comes round."You look over at the shed and begin to walk that way.---The work is hard, made that way by the hot sun above. Finally you hear the bell to break away from work. Three women walk out of the house and beckon you inside. It seems they're serving some beef soup."Well John, how's the work treatin ya?">Good, it's nice to help out.>Good.>Eh, it's alright.>My back is going to start turning out like yours soon.
>>31354750>Good, it's nice to help out.Don't eat too much, just light and get some rest.
>>31354750The work is good, I'm hungry.Nom. What are these people's names? What are we doing? Fieldwork? Lawncare/Maintenance? Stonewall building?
>>31354888You're just tilling the fields right now, the farmer has a bad back.
>>31354750make sure we thank them for the lunch, etc.
>>31354924*remind self to maintain good posture
>>31354926>>31354839"Ah, the work is good. The food's good too. Thank you, by the way."The wife smiles at you and then stands up to grab some bowls."Y'know, I could help ya out on the-""Marian, I've talked to you about this. A woman's got no place workin on the fields, especially in this heat. You'd faint afore you could pick up yer tools.""But father, I-""No, enough talkin a this while our field hand is 'ere. Sorry bout that John, you finished with yer bowl?""Yes sir.""Very good."You go back out into the fields...(1d20, taking the highest.)
>>31355068I guess we till the fuck out of those fields, huh
>>31355068The rest of the work goes by very fast, takes you only a good solid hour before you finish up. You hear the farmer whistle and clap."Fastest I've ever seen a hand finish up like that. Fine work son. 'Ere, the twenty more gold with 5 more tacked onto it. You earned that much at least.""Thank you sir.""Well, you can rest 'ere or head back, son. Either way, have a good day.">Head back home.>Rest for a bit here.
>>31355228We've only worked like 5 hours, we don't need rest. Go home, play with doge, take 5 gp to bar and get lucky.
>>31355228>Head back home.Gotta check up on our furry friendIs it a Husky like breed?Please say yes
>>31355228>Head back home.
>>31355228Let's rest here and hang out with the farmer's daughter who wanted to help out in the field. I think we got some more plowing to do. ifuknowatimsayin
>>31355371But......but MUH DOG
>>31355371We already ate their food, play it cool dude. We will offer to come back for more work, and make moves when the time is right. Doge calls out to us now.
>>31355284I'd say so.>>31355258>>31355284>>31355327You stretch your back a little and start your walk back home.On the way back, you see the wolf trying to get back up. Unfortunatly, you see a couple of kids, about 14 or 15, walk up to the dog with some sharp sticks and rocks."Aww, looks like da wittle puppy got hurt. How bout we put some more hurt on you?"The boys laugh and start to prod it.>What now?
>>31355406Kick the dog.
>>31355406Is it a young wolf or a rather old one? We can surely feed another canine, help him.
>>31355406shoo the kids away, this is some sadistic shit.
>>31355406Nah son thats not cool that aint my dawg but that could be my dawg you smell me?>Translation : I see that wolf's current predicament similar to one my dog could share. I disapprove and will take action.
>>31355406Tell the kids to piss off. Take the wolf home and make a rug out of it.
>>31355448>>31355463Word, we get the kids away from him. The wolf might be diseased, though. If it looks too bad after the kids leave, we'll have to leave him to die out here -- but at least he won't be tortured before he goes.
>>31355463>>31355448>>31355476>>31355446"Hey! HEY! Get away from him!"The kids back down a bit before a bigger kid begins to walk up to you."Papa says that those that love wolves are nothing but a stinkin elf lover! Just like the prince!""Yeah, but I'm the adult here I say stop this stuff. You hurtin this animal'l turn you into killer."The kid backs off a bit before turning to his friends."Let's get out of here or the elf lover would start talking about how we're the bad guys."The kids start to walk away and you see the wolf limp towards you. "You'll be alright. You'll... What this then?"You look at his neck and find a pure gold chain around his neck. You look a little closer and see that... Damn, this is a wolf of royalty.>What now?
>>31355533>not making a hat out of it>not wearing the hat as you recount the tale of your heroism as you saved a bunch of kids from a starving wolf to all the swooning ladies at the bar
>>31355582Bring the fucker home.
>>31355582So is pure gold rare in this setting? Are gold pieces an alloy then?
>>31355582"Well put me in a dress take me to the ball and call me sally you hungry fella?"Why was this the first thing that came to my mind?
>>31355582patch him up.
>>31355633>>31355640We have doge and 45gp. We don't need no trouble with the guards for stealing the royal wolf.
>>31355582"Your mom fucks horses, kid. That's why she's leaving your dad and why he hates animals. Go home and drink out of the trough.">observe gold chain to see if it has any specific royal names on it or anything
>>31355635yeah, gold pieces are more of a fools gold. There is PURE gold, which is gold. Then there is "Gold" gold, which is actually just a metal that is soft like gold.>>31355652>>31355640>>31355633"Well, I guess someone is out looking for you. Let's get you patched up back home, hum?"The wolf barely wags his tail before limping by your side.---You make it home and find that your own dog loves new company, but is completely oblivious to the injuries of the wolf. It headbutts the wolf softly, causing the wolf to whine in pain while Belix backs up and walks away from the wolf.>Fix up the wolf (1d20, taking the two highest. Add +1 to your rolls.)

>>31355812Very good! Ain't a nat, but just as good.You patch up the wolf after a few minutes of trying to keep him still.The wolf seems tired and starts to go to sleep, he's in okay condition for now. You might wanna keep an eye on him.It's getting late.>Go to bar.>Go to sleep.Inventory: 55 gold, extra pair of boots.

>>31355948>>31355940You head out to the local bar.The bar looks a bit busy tonight, some of the local guard head in after their shifts.You head in and are greeted by the bartender."John, what'l it be boy?">A pint, if you would. (5 gold)>Just a small drink. (2 gold)
>>31356013>Just a small drink. (2 gold)
Rolled 14>>31356013Small. We need to be sober if all the kings horses and all the kings men come looking for the wolf.
>>31356027>>31356040"Nothing too fierce, just a small drink for me.""Alright.">-2 gold.Just then, a man in plate armor comes walking in with a large beast on his shoulders. He places it on the bar itself, smashing your drink."I've slain the mighty beast that roams these lands!"You hear some cheering.>Stay silent.>"Excuse me, but you ruined my drink sir."
Rolled 14>>31356099Hey barkeep, can I get a new drink?
>>31356099>>"Excuse me, but you ruined my drink sir."we aint no bitch
>>31356013Damn, is it really a whole 2 gold for a small drink? Not even like a few copper? I mean, okay. We're a farmer after all, I'm just trying to be frugal. Take a drink and then see if we can overhear anything the local guard are talking about. Do we know any of the guards?
>>31356121>>31356040Oh wow, I didn't even notice you Travisplo. I'm the Greatest BBEG.>>31356140Gold is the currency, there is no in between stuff like silver or copper. Only the nobles are allowed to have PURE gold.
>>31356099>>"Excuse me, but you ruined my drink sir."
>>31356121Ditto, dude killed a beast, he's just doing his thing. Maybe use a bit of the ol peasant charisma to get a new drink and chat up this fellow who seems to be 'avin a right go of this noight.

Rolled 14>>31356316But the thing is, I haven't touched him! All I did was give him something to think about. Give that muscle in his air-filled head something to work on.

>>31356364>>31356337"Like I give a damn! He'll just be proving me right!"You look back to the warrior to see a fist swinging right for you.>(1d20, taking the highest of two, +1 because of dodging against plate armor.)

The wolf also seems to be distraught.>Let's get out of town, shall we?>It'll blow over... Right?

Why're you back here?"You see a larger man run up to you, trying to catch his breath."The Dragon Corp are lookin fer ya. That wasn't just any old member, that was a captain!

>>31357319No, don't burn your house down and don't get them in trouble
>>31357300>>31357293You begin to run with the wolf and Belix. You take one last look at your home and start to run.You look back after an hour of running and see that the Dragon Corp decided that their word was not an honorable word and began to burn the village down. You feel a small tear trickle down your face as you head into the forest.END OF QUEST 1
