What will the next Quest be?
« on: January 22, 2010, 09:00:09 PM »
While zombies still stumble about our halls, leaving trails of decayed viscera in their stead, let us ponder our next Quest, right here in this thread.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

 Bonus points for rhymification.

I propose all things Lovecraftian in flavor. Star-spawned beasts and ancient, perverse cults. And tentacles. Lot's of tentacles.

When Star-Spawned maladies invade your realities, you'll need nary a nudge to find yourself knee-deep in Shoggoth sludge.

Oh yes, what an unpleasant romp you'll have through the festering flesh-swamp of Rr'lavinav. And when you begin to see the fog thin, a monstrous worm of pus, topped with a fin, will rot you skull from deep within.

That is why we play these horrible games, not for honor or glory, but to see whose named can be attached to the death most gory.

((In other words: I agree with Drackler.))

What about creating a quest dedicated to the most unusual cavalry mounts and units? Since armed horsemen were an elite component of most pre-industrial armies, this one  should be quite interesting.

I think that the sudden appearence of countless giant squid off the coast of California this week may be an omen brothers and sisters.

Horrors from beyond the stars? That might be fun. The Exotic Mounts quest can come right thereafter. Or the other way around. I'm in for both.

When?

A skeleton walks into a bar and ask the Bartender: “Do you serve skeletons here?”

Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

The skeleton hands the man a silver and says: “Fine, I’ll have a pitcher of beer…and a mop”

So, are everyone's horrors so unspeakable that they are unsubmittable? I have one in work, but it has been rather quiet on the quest front.

If assignments let up a bit, I'll submit something suitable. I'm really hoping here that CP comes out of his mysterious seclusion and submits something. This is the type of thing he usually excells at.

Thanks Strolen! Quite a few folks expressed interest in writing up more horrors. April 9th is a suitably ominous date.
