Angered Sprite


As a mage walks through the forest a sprite appears on a branch in front him (or her). The mage will be the only one that will be able to see the sprite. The sprite demands that the mage release him from the forest.

As a mage walks through the forest a sprite appears on a branch in front him (or her). The mage will be the only one that will be able to see the sprite. The sprite demands that the mage release him from the forest. If the mage refuses or acts like he has no idea what is going on the sprite will disappear but will take with him one of the mages prized possesions. When the mage hunts for the Sprite he will reappear and demand to be releasd from the forest.

If the mage should ask him why and how to release the sprite. He will be told that the sprite pissed off a wizard so the wizard confined him to the forest. The sprite begged the wizard to release him the wizard said showed the sprite a scroll and said he would when the sprite learned his lesson. However later that day the wizard was killed in the forest. Now the sprite needs someone to help him.

If the mage refuses to help the sprite will constantly torment the mage until the mage leaves the forest. The sprite must be equivilent to an immortal for he has been trapped here for 500 years and has not aged a bit. If the mage truely tries to help the sprite then the sprite will provide a wealth of information to the mage.

To help the sprite the mage must scale down a gourge in the middle of the forest and find the mages body and cast the spell on the sprite. The sprite does not know the exact location of the body since he cannot go into the gourge.

In the gourge there are various undead that will atack the mage if enters the gourge.

Back to the plot!
Combine that comment above with another plot on this page...
After freeing the spirit it will be so thankful that it becomes the mages unwanted companion, helping where it can (thievery included). Solve this.

There's always the age-old possibility that the sprite was confined for a good reason and that letting him out will have bad consequences: maybe he was a thief or murderer. Maybe the sprite is a carnivorous scavenger and wants the mage to fall into the gorge and die providing him with a tasty meal.

Maybe the original mage isn't all the way dead.

What exactly was the lesson the sprite was supposed to learn? Also, consider the possibility that the sprite can't read, or at least can't read the scrolls the mage had. The sprite could become a companion, at least for the trip to the bottom of the gorge, for some time.

What killed the mage? Yes, there's undead at the bottom of the gorge, but are they really so powerful or numerous to have overwhelmed the mage? There could be a more nefarious force that killed the mage - A magic poor area. The victim mage blundered into the undead and tryed to use his spells to destroy them, only to find his magic unavailable. Even simple skeletons and zombies could overpower a magicless mage.

What about the scroll? Has it survived all these years, or is it useless? Maybe the magic on the scroll is differnt in essence from common-day magics?
What about the sprite, it might bot be alive after all these years (even if he thinks he is alive) & can never truely leave the area.

I really like the idea. 5/5 Maybe when the sprite tries to leave the area it'll find itself ageing at the rate of one year for every second.

This seems like part of an adventure, rather than an adventure itself. Do we have an encounter section? Right we do. This should be there.

I think the original author meant spirit :) Seems to make more sense to me that way.

I wish I had something I could contribute to the submission to make it better other than a vote, but I don't. It's riddled with unanswered questions and any I might say are more or less echoes of previous commenters.

Besides this plot seemingly being submitted for the wrong category (I agree this is more of an encounter as opposed to a side-quest but then possibly the author has his own interpretation of what constitutes a side-quest), I think this is a solid submission. Not that original and refreshing in itself but then it did spark nice inputs from others that have added a great deal to it.

Charging Magic Swords

       By: MoonHunter

If a fighter has a +1 sword that only gives that plus one if he does an exhausting practice routine in the morning, he's liable to ditch the magic sword and just use an old fashioned chunk of steel. Rather than being wore out and need to rest a couple hours before he gets started just in case he needs that plus one, he could just strap on a blade and ride off without having to deal with all the issues. (From Something Agar said)
