QUEST ONE UNLOCKED - It takes a village...of Goblins

78 likes

The sun rises...

...over the Goblin Village. Multi-colored creatures emerge from their wattle and daub huts, the points of their ears stretching in the morning gloom. Suddenly a figure careens from the bracken, screaming at the top of his lungs. It's the well-intentioned but incredibly clumsy member of the tribe, Fumbles. He bumps into the stewpot on his way to you and yells:

"We made it to $50,000!!! Do you know what this means?!?"

You shake your head. Fumbles, as always, is a little odd, and it's hard to tell at any given moment if he's incredibly foolish or incredibly wise. Probably foolish. 

"We've UNLOCKED a QUEST!"

"A quest?" you say.

"YES! Out there, in the bracken... no, not that bracken, THAT bracken. Good. Out there, there's a member of the MYSTERY CAST. And they're trapped!"

"Trapped?" you think.

"Yes TRAPPED! Trapped in this old SPELLBOOK covered in STRANGE FACES! 

Trapped in a...Facebook?

"Only by reaching 1000 likes on THE FACEBOOK can we RELEASE them. Here, I have 700 for you. Can you get the rest? I told Complains I would help him clean Thaco's feet today..."

eew...

"Please, I need your help..."

Roll for initiative, what are you doing?

Investigate the MAGICAL BOOK OF FACES...

      I kick out the kobold's legs, sending him crashing to the ground next to me. A reddish glow surrounds my arm as I summon a golden ball of flame into my hand. I desperately smash the tiny sun into the kobold's face, turning its yellow teeth to ash. It burbles on the ground as I scrabble to my feet. I stumble off towards Davids voice, crunching through the dry leaves. David has been practicing nightly with his fathers sword, but has he ever really used it? My gods there were so many...

      * His vision blurs as his life BEGINS to come CLOSE to ending.

      The kobolds swarm around Timothy, screaming high pitched battle cries as they swing and stab at him with rusty, unkempt blades, looted from the corpses of past adventurers. Timothy involuntarily calls out as a blade slices through him. Then another and another. His vision blurs as his life comes to its end.

      Suddenly, David's voice is heard from the other side of the warcamp. The kobolds all turn toward the distraction and run screaming at the new enemy, spears and blades ready to fall yet another foe. One kobold stays with Timothy, it grins yellow teeth and rises its short sword to kill Timothy, once and for all.

      Andy, safe in the bushes, has prepared healing magic.

      I distract the Kobolds for Tim! I will likely die on the end of one of their spears...

      Duke, you attack the Gazebo, you hammer at the struts. As you cut through the final strut, you have time for a single, "Oh no..." Before the roof falls in on you. Roll a strength check.
