Knight windfall!

The vote in our last Lone Wolf decision was running overwhelmingly to telling the truth, so I’m going ahead and booking that as a given. Which results in:

Having already decided to come clean, and having thankfully recovered the Seal earlier in our adventure, I decided we’d go ahead and show it to him. Thus:

Sweet, loot! If I’m reading this right, we could in theory take everything he’s got. That’ll show him! However, we can only carry a total of two weapons, and we already have our preferred spear. We also already have a Backpack. And we are already carrying the maximum number of Gold Crowns we can shove into our belt pouch. That pretty much just leaves one of the weapons, the Healing Potion, and the 3 Meals of food.

Thus, I make yet another command decision, and scoop those into our backpack and shove off. I am drunk with power! I picked the broadsword as our second weapon because stabbity stab.

My “monomaniacal dictator” dial is still pegged at “DOOM”, so I once again am making a command decision and heading to the bridge like the nice coked-up Knight recommended.

For once, we know the answer! Eat it, high school teachers who taunted me! Er, us. Whatever.

We made it to the big city, Mom! Sadly, there is no “hit up the local gaming store” option, so it looks like we’re stuck. Of course, having spent our journey with a partial concussion from the “helpful” fishermen, debauched ourselves senseless at the gambling hall, and in vicious fights with various foes along the way, I’ve forgotten what we’re here for. That should make the decision on what to do next particularly spicy, in a completely random sort of way.

So what’ll it be, folks?

  1. I was going to say ‘harbor’ so that we could potentially end this adventure the same way it began – broke, concussed, and alone by the waterfront, but… one run-in with dirty sea-thugs a book is enough for me.

  2. I voted city hall because we can always go to the harbor later, and besides, I want to see what’s in there.

    Definitely city hall. I’ve rather had it with sailors at this point.

  4. I vote we use our Kai Discipline of Weasel-y Politicking to confound and disorient the magistrates of this city to give us what we want. Unfortunately, I no idea what it is that we want anymore. Tally-ho!

  5. Dere be fishy folk about! FEAR THE HARBOUR!!!! FEAR IT!!!!

  6. 14-nill to the city hall… maybe it’s time for another command decision ;)

  7. We should go in, see why the door’s open. If we’re lucky, we’ll catch a thief or something and get another reward…

  8. What has the world come to when we are willing to trust government officials over some dirty, smelly sailors? Oh, right, City Hall hasn’t knocked us over the head and taken all our stuff yet.

    Worf (6), you may be right.

  9. There is always a chance we might go all “stabbity-stab” on some politicians. We might just be the hero of the entire city!

  10. Curiousousity got the better of me, so I deceided to hop in the way back machine, and journey to April 21, the day this epic tale began, to find out what the blue blazes we were supposed to be doing. This was the original quest. “The King has given you the Seal of Hammerdal. Your quest is to travel to Durenor to fetch the Sommerswerd back.” We were supposed to complete it in forty days. According to today’s entry, it’s only been ten. So yay us! So to city hall we go…wait, do we have the Sommerswerd? Crap.

  11. If we’re supposed to continue on to somewhere else, that would probably mean the harbor, and more fun with sailors. It’s never been a fetish of mine, but it’s better than politicians.

  12. @Mike 9: If it does, we can always call on Samson for help…

  13. Since the city hall is open much later than it should be, I suspect Boss Hogg and Roscoe are inside plotting some shenanigans that we can fall victim to, or at the very least, get blamed for. I say we go in.

    The last digression, investigating the watchtower, turned out OK. Given the amount of time we have, I agree, find out what’s up at City Hall.
    Does anybody remember what the Sommerswerd is?

  15. @Spidercow2010: If memory serves, it’s a sword.

  16. Yep, just checked the beginning of the adventure…
    “Sommerswerd, the sword of the sun”.

  17. @Gero 12: Nah, he’d just wind up losing his hair again. Some desperate politician will start swinging some manilla folder around and slice it off. Besides, his fur underpants are just a little too creepy for me.
