Welcome to episode 1! By the way, I have added a nice looting system to the game. It's simple really. If you want the torso off a dead body, you can take it. Same goes for helmets and weapons. For instance, if you find the corpse of a traveler and want his torso, you xan tell me that you want it and I will put it on your character. Easy as pie!
Now for the story to begin.......
(Inside the royal treasure vaults..)
Link: Where is Luneos taking us?
Cuscand: Wouldn't have a clue!
Bardon: Where's Smiggle?
Luneos: We have arrived at the sacred treasure vaults. Be careful not to touch anything!
Everyone surveys their surroundings.
The magical armour of king Thorindiil! By the way, the katana is ordinary and is lootable.
Luneos: The magical rings of power. These rings are the only thing that stand between Risto (the master of evil and also an evil wizard) and our kingdom. If he were to get hold of these, then all would be lost.
Bardon: Oh, there you are, Smiggle!
Smiggle: Oooh.. Preciouses!
Bardon: No, don't touch them!
Bardon: Smiggle! What have you done?!
As Bardon tries to settle the crowd, no-one notices a crashing sound coming from the wall!
Luneos is hit with a magical bolt!
Luneos: Risto, he is here...
Risto: Now, now. What do we have here? Oh yes! The rings of power!
Risto sees the group, now armed, ready to advance on him!
Emerson: Really? One orc?
Luneos mutters a spell..
And a skeleton makes quick work of the hapless orc!
Luneos: We must go after him!
Our heroes rush outside.
Risto: No! Where's the third ring? Oh well, I have 2. I will use these two rings to craft a weapon so powerful that not even Thorindiil would be able to stop me!
Risto: Oh dear, better keep going.
Where is the third ring, Risto asks. Well, now you know!
Smiggle: Master! Look what I found!
Bardon: What a beautiful piece of craftsmanship! I shall keep it in my pocket. Maybe I can sell it later!
Luneos: Something bad has happened here. This looks like the remains of a cart. Poor trader.
Cuscand: is he still living?
Cuscand: His eyes see no more. I wonder what caused his death.
(You can loot this trader if you like!)
Hernom: Look! Fire wood! Whoever was here last was here quite recently! There's even some food cooking!
Kren: Yes, rather suspicious.
Luneos: I think we shall make camp here so that we can survive the night.
Hernom: Aye! Good plan!
Suddenly, 3 orcs burst out of the bushes behind Luneos!
Luneos lies still and unmoving!
Cuscand: Nooooo! Luneos! You shall be avenged!
Link, Cuscand and Emerson fight the orcs!
First one orc goes down..
And another! I wonder how Cuscand got the orc into the tree ;)
The loot. Remember, looting is optional. You don't have to loot corpses if you don't want to.
The party buries Luneos next to the road.
Smiggle also contributes to the ceremony.
Kren: Well, the orcs sure explain the skeletons and the traveler.
Hernom: I agree. But uh, what shall we do? We wanted to set up camp but now I'm not so keen on the idea. Maybe we should scout out the area instead. Or, some of us could stay here and make camp while some of us go scout out the area.
So, here are your choices:
1) Stay and make camp.
2) Go scouting.
Remember, either choice could get you killed, seeming as I don't even know what I'll be doing for the next episode. The next episode is based completely on your choices.
