The Adventurer's Return
Battered and bruised, the remaining adventurers who embarked on the quest to the swamp and the druid return to the GAL with the healing potion for the sick goblin upstairs. They deliver the potion to the barman and he disappears upstairs....
After a short while, he comes back downstairs.
"Thank you. He's breathing more easily now and his fever is easing. I don't think he'll be awake for a while, but I'm sure he'll want to thank you himself when he is. Now, I think you deserve a drink, don't you? These ones are on me."
pays Dashon 2GP to identify his new Crystal Mask. Dashon ponders for a bit and then says:
"Hmmm... Interesting. It seems your mask has been imbued with nature magic... Very nice! If you wear this mask in a natural setting, like a cave or a forest or something, it should allow you to blend in with the environment. Providing you don't move too much of course! Very handy for sneaking around if you ask me!"
decides to try his hand at the combi-box and pops some of his items in:
The sharp fork + torch snuffer go in first. The box whirs and grumbles and clunks to a halt as a "90" appears on the lid. Colourful sparks puff out from inside the box as he opens it and he pulls out a deadly-looking Spork
Putting the fire elemental's heart and the frog-king's crown into the box gets him the no. 25 and a clink. Opening it up, he retrieves a pretty pink Tiara with little love hearts all around the sides. Beautiful!
hands the talking skull back to Steals
"how did I even get this thing in the first place ?"
pays for his burning blade to be ID'd and discovers it is a Burning Blade: +2 ATT (chance to burn an enemy)
examines her metal disc, but it sadly has no special properties. Popping the puzzle box and small bag into the combi box, she is delighted when it pops to a halt on a "93" and recovers a Pocket Portal: Can be used to hide one item (any size). Stored items can ONLY be retrieved by the person who put them there..
then pops her Smoking Disk and Ex-Flashing Metal Ball into the combi box. It whistles and pops and pings up with a "98". Opening the box, she finds herself looking at a miniature stormcloud
. It floats up to eye level and... blinks at her!
asks the barman for a dirty pint (containing one of every drink behind the bar), but isn't quite so impressed that it'll cost her 5GP! Instead, she decides to leave the box alone and go adventuring.
Naps takes his mystery blue crystal to Dashon
for some identifying. Dashon
grins as he takes 2GP from Naps for the work, but the smile quickly fades...
"Well, I'll be... I'm sorry friend, but I can't take your money for this. I can't tell you what it is, except that it's enchanted with some damn powerful magic... It's strange and... frightening. I've never seen anything like it!"
As a thunder storm continues to rumble on outside, a new goblin enters the League, with an appearance that mirrors the weather perfectly!
has joined the GAL!
"Hey new guy! *teeeeheeee* I'm Laughs Creepily, who *teee* are you?
"Welcome to the Goblin Adventurer's League, friend! Pull up a stool and have a drink! What'll you be having?"
"VengefulOne. I'll buy a drink to honor my fallen brother, RighteousOne. To my brother!
"Hey Robert, put that one on my *teee* tab. Sorry for your *hehehe* loss. You know, Right helped me get *teehe* revenge on an evil wizard for my *hahee* ear. We got him back in the end! *HAHAHAHAHAheeeee* Anything I can help you with, let me know. *tehe*
..."I need a weapon...
he says and heads outside to buy a throwing axe.
Which he does.
heads out to the trader and offers some items for sale.
"Well, I can take the dagger off your hands for 3GP. It's nothing special though. The puzzle box... These are unusual and people are always looking for unusual things. I can give you 20GP for that if you like? The pen and paper... You're as well keeping that to be honest. I can't resell that for very much at all."
@Quarg: You've brought back the new ropes and the chest so they can go in the trapper keeper in due course.
