Exploring the City

Requirements - at least 3 SOC
Available Space - 3
Start Time - 07/30/08 00:00:00 (UTC)
Length - Unknown
Purpose - This party will be sent out to explore the city to find out if anyone knows where this Guardian is.
Rewards - 15 XP, 15 gold pieces, and 1 point to add to any attribute of your choice
Penalties - 25 gold pieces
Other - The reason for the requirement is that this quest will require conversing successfully with the Atlantians.  So far, the only encounter with an Atlantian is Professor Blithe, and he was, well, a little eccentric, so just be careful not to base all your judgments of Atlantians on the encounter with the Professor.

Thog will participate in this one once the eating contest is over.

I think Yoda has planned it so we can’t do both as the pie contest takes a day and he hasn’t started it even though its filled. Annoying, yes, but there is nothing that can be done about it. Unless you want to back down from a challenge.

*shrug* I dunno.

If that’s the way he wants to do it :P   It appears the story quest may go unfulfilled.

it looks like you could make it in this one after the contest, since the start times are a day apart

(Lol, we have a gnome, a fairy, and an ogre.  This could get interesting…)

Ok, let’s take a vote.  Who is going to be first to try to converse with the Atlantians?  As soon as I get 2 votes for the same person, I will begin the story.

Amnistar:

Thog talk to people only if no one want to.

He talk to people with big stick.

Bucky:

07-30-2008 01:46:37 UTC

Bucky doesn’t trust anyone but himself to make first contact.

Amnistar:

07-30-2008 04:22:06 UTC

Thog let Buck talk first.

Thog come behind with big stick.

Bucky:

Warning:  I’ll be AFK for a while, possibly up to 18 hours.

Chivalrybean:

Hangs back.

Yoda:

(Sorry, still suffering from writer’s block.  I’ll be back in about 4 hours, hopefully with something.)

Bucky walks up to an Atlantian and tries to talk to him.  The Atlantian turns around and looks, but apparently doesn’t see anyone there, so he just keeps on walking.  Bucky tries to get his attention again, but fails.

Yoda:

Oh, and “DICE9:1 DICE3:3” was Bucky SOC vs. Atlantian SOC.

Amnistar:

Thog moves in this time.

Bucky to short.  No one overlook Thog.

Thog reaches over and taps the Atlantian on the shoulder.  “Hi,” says Thog.

“You’re a… you’re a…” the Atlantian mutters before fainting.  It looks like Thog’s charm got the best of him.

(Wow.  I didn’t expect you guys to have this much trouble.  Lol.)

Amnistar:

07-31-2008 03:43:43 UTC

(This keeps up Thog is gonna do his kind of diplomacy, bashing people till they agree with what he says.  Chivalry’s turn?)

Yoda:

07-31-2008 03:45:44 UTC

(Yah, since he’s the only one left.  I’ll get right on it.)

(DICE6:5 DICE3:1)

Tinkergong flies over to the Atlantian to see if he’s alright.  The wind from his wings seems to wake the man.

“Ar—Are—Are you my guardian angel?” asks the Atlantian.

Thog and Bucky burst out laughing, but after a glance from Tinkergong (if looks could kill…), they quickly contain their laughter.

“Why, yes I am,” replies Tinkergong in a tone so sweet it almost makes him cringe at himself.

“Oh, good… because I just had a horrible dream that I came face-to-face with a horrible monster!”

Thog starts to move toward the Atlantian, but Tinkergong motions him to stay.

“Wow!  That’s really something,” says Tinkergong, acting surprised.

“Yeah, but I’m glad it’s all over now.  So, why have you been sent to me?”

Tinkergong pauses, then says, “I have come to protect you from the Guardian.”

“Ah yes, so am I destined to be one of the brave adventurers that helps to protect the world from the Guardian’s wrath?”

“Actually, no.”  The Atlantian becomes downcast.  “But you can help.”  Immediately, he brightens up again.

“Really?  I would love to!”

“Yes, you can help by telling me where this Guardian is.”

“Oh, he has lain asleep for millenia beneath the great, black tower in the very center of the city.”

“Thank you, dear one.  Your service has been invaluable.”

“But there is one thing.”

“What might that be?”

“In order to enter the tower, you must be wearing a certain amulet, but that amulet has been lost for centuries.”

“You mean this amulet?” asks Tinkergong as he takes out the amulet.

The Atlantian gasps and faints again.

“Well, I guess we got what we needed.  Let’s get out of here before he wakes up again,” says Tinkergong.

Congratulations!  Task succeeded.
