This is gonna be a very short one, since the room is pretty short. To recap, our heroes came across a rival NPC, braved their first trap, looted their first corpses, and now discovered their first secret room, which is what the entire post is gonna be about.
The heroes enter a small golden room. The only feature in the room is the skeleton of a large figure. Cora decides to look closer at the skeleton.
: Itís an ogre. Must have died from old battle wounds... wait...
Cora then looks at a shield the skeleton was holding, more importantly, its crest. [Intelligence DC Check: 10. Cora = 20! CRITICAL SUCCESS!]
: Guys! This shield is enchanted with the Invisibility
Mark! Whoever holds it will activate the enchantment and render them invisible for five whole minutes! (Or in laymanís terms, five rounds)
: Ah. Sweet. This will make a killing at D-Bay. (D-Bay? Really?)
: You fool! This will make a great weapon! We must use this to our advantage! (And now he acts like Boromir.)
: This is gonna be bad news... I say we destroy it! (As Alice sounds like Frodo)
: Alice, just because the thing makes you invisible doesnít mean itís some Artifact of Doom
. If it was, then youíd bet your ass thereíd be a sequel about that
. (Sorry, couldnít resist breaking character for that one joke) But who to give it to?
: You should have it, Cora. You nearly died last time. You need all the help you can get. (Thatís true!)
: Thanks, but that was because of bad luck. (Thatís also true!) Hm... Drew, you found the door, I think you should get this. (Hm... perfect at everything? Check. Pulls off tasks with no effort? Check. Getting sweet swag for no reason? Check. I think we have our Mary Sue
: Good. Iíll wear it as soon as I feel like it.
: Good. Now, to the next room!
The heroes see a large wooden door, and charge right through.
So like I said, very short. Drew still seems to be winning me over, which means that heís now a Creator's Pet
... Sort of. It depends on if people hate him or not. If they donít then tough cheese for me then. Iím starting to see a pattern in these four.
- Alice: The Roleplayer, since sheís more of the caring kind and actually has some concerns.
- Barendd: The Real Man, because he wants to rush into battle.
- Cora: The Loonie, because... Okay, maybe not her.
- Drew: The Munchkin, due to being incredibly broken.
Well, thatís pretty much it for my ending rant. Stay tuned for part four.
