Quest - Legendary People



Original Quest from November 1, 2006 to November 30, 2006

Every society has their stories of mythic heroes. King Arthur. Hercules. The Monkey King. Sometimes villians also get in on the mythic status action: Professor Moriarty. Sauron. Jack the Ripper. In the end, every game world needs a fine assortment of larger than life people, if only just the stories of their exploits.



So this month's quest is Mythic/Historical NPCs.

You come upon a ruined building in the back section of a city park (or other out of the way area of the city). The ruins are fairly overgrown. All that is really standing is a doorway and its frame. If you pass through the opened door, you travel to a different world. If the door closes, there may not be a doorway back to get you back.
