(1x1) Sage's Adventure

Sage Fletcher is the “hero” of the story and is hired to basically stop an impending war, not that they know this… yet. Sage is a hired-adventurer, known only for the tasks they do and not for who they were before this chosen career path. They soon receive this “mission” or “quest” and undergo many challenges in order to complete it. Something is missing or was it stolen and they have to get in back in time before war breaks out. @Littlefeets chooses the path for Sage, as well as their weapon, clothing, and even how they interact and battle. Will they be successful or die trying?

Additional info:

Skill, Stamina, Luck

You will give a score for each one, but they change constantly during the adventure. However, totals may never exceed your initial scores, except on rare occasions.

Skill
This score reflects how well you can fight and use a weapon. This is the only score that can stay relatively unaffected.

Stamina
This score reflects your well-being, your determination and overall fitness. When a stamina score reaches zero, the result is death.

Luck
This score reflects how lucky you are. You can use luck at various times. In battle or in other situations, but be aware that you can be lucky or unlucky. If you are lucky, great, but if you are unlucky then the results can disastrous. When using luck in battles, you can use it to inflict a more serious wound on the creature you have wounded or to minimise the effects of a wound inflicted on you.

I will be making sure luck fair when you use it and be rolling dice to determine the outcome. If you have a higher luck score, the higher your chance to be lucky! Though each time you test your luck, you will subtract on point from your score.


Battles

You will often come across creatures on your travels. Some may be friendly and others may not. At times, you may be given the option of either being sneaky or to flee. Although, if not, or if you choose not to, you will battle the creature.

During a battle, you will be given the creature’s stamina and skill score. Depending on your attacks, movement, and other choices, will depend on the damage you cause and how much is caused to you. Getting damaged will make your stamina (and possibly skill) level to decrease, meaning you will be weaker in the battle unless you manage to restore it. You may have to fight more than one monster at a time, but you will be told how to deal with it when it happens.

If you decide to flee during a battle, then it should be noted that the creature automatically gets one wound on you.


Equipment & Potions

You will start with the bare minimum of equipment, but you can find or buy more during your travels. You are armed with two weapons of choice and your own choice of dress. You will have a backpack for your Provisions and any treasures you come across.

In addition, you may take one bottle of magic potion to help aid you in your quest. These can be taken at any time during the quest, except when engaged in battle. Each potion may only be used once.

Here are the choices:
A potion of skill - restores your skill points
A potion of strength - restores your stamina points
A potion of fortune - restores your luck points and adds one to your initial score.

Sage lived in a small cottage on the edge of a humble little town. The town wasn’t really known for routine mail delivery, although, that didn’t seem to inhibit Sage’s job. Word still got to them when their skills were needed and yesterday was no different. A neon post-it note stuck to the outside of their kitchen window with the words “6am. Black Sedan. Pack.”

Now it was morning, just before six, and Sage needed to pack a backpack that wasn’t too heavy on their pack. Of course, their weapons, they carried, along with the clothing they were wearing. But what goes inside their pack?

  • One change of clothes
  • Some kind of bottled drink
  • 5 items of food
  • Potion of skill
  • Something that can be used a blanket (a blanket is fine)
  • And two smaller items of Sage’s choosing

Once Sage (and @Littlefeets) chooses what to put in their pack, they must go out to the waiting car.

Sage wore something light to travel in as they packed themself a bag. First a change of clothes, something a bit more protective. From there, they grabbed a light but warm blanket, a bottle of water, and the potion of skill that they had for safe measure. Then for food they grabbed a bag of jerky, dried apple slices, a can of beans, a granola bar, and a bag of mixed nuts. A variety of things that could last them a while. Finally Sage made sure they had their set of lock picking tools and a small sewing kit, just in case.
It took Sage a mere few minutes to gather their supplies, so they sat at their kitchen table admiring a sparkling ring they had “found” on their most recent assignment while they awaited the black sedan that was supposed to pick them up. They looked up from the ring, and to the clock that had just struck the six, as they heard the vehicle pull up in front of the cottage. They quickly stood up, placing the ring into a small box at the back of the cabinet, one of the many locations they had for hiding the goods they had collected during their various assignments. Certain of the hidden nature of their belongings, Sage placed their pack on their back and ensured the status of their knives, before grabbing their crossbow and heading out the door of the cottage and to the car

The back door opened automatically as Sage approached it. Inside the car’s backseat (area) was clean and the well-heated, which was nice on this crisp morning. There was a darkened divider between the front and back seats, which obscured any view of the driver from her eye. The centre armrest was down and on it sat an inviting mug of steaming hot cocoa topped with marshmallows.

Hey @Littlefeets, please remember this and the group one with Chid?! (wink)
