You are Krognar, the Mighty!Although you have yet to accomplish any deeds worthy of your ancestors, if you are honest. The king of these lands has horrible laws preventing your glory from shining, things like an '"adventurer tax", which means he steals most of your gold, legally too!How can you live like this?Suddenly an idea strikes you:Start a homestead in the wilderness, and unite all those sick of his terrible economic policies!Quickly! No time to lose!Gather your allies and explain this inspirational plan!>Hecktor the mage, surely you need someone to do wizardly things like reading or cooking!>Shirly the priest, for someone must attend to washing and cleaning, and who better than a priest?>Hernando the dwarf, a master mason and great drinking friend. He knows the secret of tunnels not collapsing, and digging through rock.>Millie the rogue. Come to think of it you never see her working, and when you asked she smirked and told you thats the sign of a good rogue. still the others appreciate her for some reason.
>>40657323>>Hernando the dwarf, a master mason and great drinking friend. He knows the secret of tunnels not collapsing, and digging through rock.
>>40657323Quickly you rush to Hecktors workshop, easy to locate due to its status of being on fire."HEKTOR!", you bellow, "Ï HAVE AN IDEA! FOLLOW ME!" you grab him by his robe and start dragging him off. He starts yelling something, but you never got anywhere by listening to mages. "Oh no Krognar, don't touch that", Pah! that demon gave wonderful horns, sure it raised your tax bracket or some such arcane foolery, but what glorious combat!
>>40657334just running through the allies before giving you choices of equipment and destination. But I'll do him next!
>>40657352Dragging your faithful friend, you swiftly locate the dwarf in the cheapest, most vile drinking pit this city has. Inside you hear the noise of a mighty brawl going on, and although you are bereft of weapons(besides a wizard), you can hear your friend inside as well. what a convenient excuse!

IT IS TIME FOR FREEDOM AND ADVENTURE! ONWARDS! TO THE TEMPLE!"
>>40657599Dragging your wizard friend and proceeded by a stout comrade, you rush towards the temple in this district, where else could your cleanest companion reside?You mount the steps two at a time, relishing the cries of the fearful (in this case quite probably your wizard as he impacts the stone steps), and reach the top in no time at all!The eucenemical generic temple, part of a series erected by a past King in an attempt to appease all dieties simultaneosly.He was smited shortly after completion of the first, but none were desecrated due to divine politics. It does make it more confusing when looting a temple however.You kick open the doors with your mighty boot, and scream over the morning prayers, "SHIRLEY! COME AT ONCE! I HAD AN IDEA"You see the other priests give her a look and start shoving her in your direction.That was easier!You ignore the ceaseless prattling of your allies and make your way back to your impenatrable fortress, which, due to zoning and economic reasons is a small room in the sewers, decorated with the finest rat furs you could hunt. You are certain that Millie will have heard of your rampageand made her way there.And indeed she is! you feel something breeze down your back before a whisper is in your ear "Krognar, why do you have a dead rabbit in your money purse instead of coins?"You explain your brilliance, that by switching the coins to your loincloth none shall be able to pick-pocket you again! After indicating the brown-yellow stained garment,you notice that she looks a little off-colour. perhaps imagining the fury you would unleash upon such an act?You drop your friend on a fur pile and give them the gist of your plan. The only one likely to object is currently unconscious due to temple steps, so the group decides to entertain your madness for a few months, certain it will wear thin.(vote coming up....)
>>40657605So, comrades!Where shall we go to start this great work?>The dark forest, surely none shall trouble us in there! and the giant spiders made such beautiful silk!>High mountain pass, It lies on the trade route with another kingdom so we should be able to restock easily.>By the sea!

>>40657650Forest it is!You explain to the others the depths of your genius!There was that quest you went on about 3 months ago that took you to an old tower deep inside the forest. Surely if you go back there now and clean it up, you can use it as the centre of your new town!Alternatively, there was that strange clearing close to the mountain stream. That was closer to the main roads and did have that nice rockface you could carve into....
