“- You talk about a cage … A joke …”
I grumble on the way home, carrying in a bundle, the remains of the object found.
As soon as I find this bloody priest, he will feel my arrows. Not only do I have to find stupid puzzles, but what’s more, I do all the work.
I walk, my legs tired and I pick fruit that I swallow, quickly, to regain strength. But the last tests were terrible and I feel the need to rest, to take back my mind too. I find a tree and I climb on it. To rest on the ground, is not prudent. The animals are hungry and I do not want to become their lunch. And humans are also used to capture and kill before asking questions … a bad habit. Here I am perched on a branch. I close my eyes, to escape a few moments. Before feeling a shock on my arm and an instant pain
“- Ouchhhh. What is happening”
I growl and open my eyes, just to receive a new stone.
“- Who dares?”
I prepare my bow and arrow before I see the priest, smiling, in the clearing, just below me.
“- So little, do you intend to rest for a long time? This is not how you will help the world to feel better. You better get off this tree, before falling to the ground.
I’m staring at him …”
“- What do you still want, I found your thing, in this Land. I did what I had to do. It’s up to you now to do your job! Make your mantra for the famine to stop!”
He shakes his head.
“- I’ll call you back. You are my arms and my legs. I am your head. Without you, I can not do anything and without me, you can not do anything, either. So, stop doing the child and get off this tree.”
I let myself slide along the trunk and I stand in front of him.
“- Good! What should I do again? Attack a Kuri with bare hands? Jump from a mountain? Cross an ocean?”
He smiles at me
“- No it is very simple. You must find Svago the beautiful, an island and a city that you will find easily. Svago is a small island out of the way of major trading routes on the wider Thassa. Never much considered by seafarers, who tend to prefer the more direct routes to Cos and Tyros. It is a forgotten little gem, much out of the way of those that roam Gor for profit.”
“- And on this island, you will find a person, the person who is watering the travelers. She will guide you in the mazes of the city. Of course, you’ll have to dress differently … or you’ll end up in a cage. You must respect the customs of this place. And above all, you must be careful in your actions, in your words. The person who will guide you, will show you your future if you are imprudent. She will also introduce you to people who will ask you questions. You will have to answer to know, you will have to overcome to know, you will have to think to survive.”
“- It’s no longer a quest, but a suicide that you ask me for. And then, I do not have outfits to go to a city!”
He smiles at me, mocking me, and hands me a bag.
– You’ll find the right clothes in there. You’ll change before getting off the boat. Come on, go for it now! Do not wait for Gor anymore!”
Svago (BTB SIM)
People who come to Svago must respect Svago’s rules. It is a BTB city. Only adequate clothing is tolerated. We must respect greetings Goreens. A woman, considered free, must not carry weapons.
Players will have to wear this QUEST TAG Object –
The game starts with a correct and consistent RP to find the first person. If the RP is too light, the person may not accept. This person will take you to another person with a new RP. The final person will be the master of Svago, who will receive you with his wife.
The lady will ask you 3 questions, 3 puzzles. You will have to give the answers. Each correct answer gives you 1 point.
If you fall on a question, you have the opportunity to request a challenge like duel in 3 rounds. You will not have the choice of weapons. (Dice)
If you win the duel, you take the lost point on the issue.
If you collect 3 points, the Svago Master will give you the clue.
If you have 2 points, but if you practiced a very good RP, to the appreciation of the people met, the 3rd point can be granted to you.
If you have 2 points, you can request a final challenge in 3 rounds to win the 3rd point. You will not have the choice of weapons. (Dice)
If you have 1 point, you will have to leave Svago and wait until the next day.
If you have 0 points, you will be slave to Svago for 24 hours and you will be able to restart the trials after this period of slavery.
