Nokie's Bible Quest

Postby Nokie » Sat Feb 02, 2019 12:58 am

Back in the day I was really fortunate to have a god (Iuz) out of the blue, take time to run Nokie through a personalized quest. From what I remember, there was an item in the game called something like, 'The HOLY Bible' that Nokie had fun RPing with. For some reason it was removed from the game. I think this person took pity on Nokie and led him through a really elaborate quest for a personalized reward. Here is the info I captured from that time, in case anyone is interested:

Chosen for his unswerving tendencies towards sadism, this man's sole purpose
is to instill fear and discipline in all of the miners.  Towards that end,
he is a towering man, much taller than any other drow you have ever seen.

bulge out with every flex.  An evil grin on his face shows that he does
not believe in mercy.

You say 'intro, poison, and disguise!'

<> l paper
There is something written upon it:

The ancient arts of disguise are chronicled
in a timeline on this page...dating back
thousands of years.  Of note is the first
disguise - that of smearing mud all over
one's body in an attempt to be seen
as nothing more than a blob of wet
dirt...sadly there is no detail as to
the success or failure of this 1st
disguise.

There are many more writing dealing with
cosmetics, clothing, modes of movement,
and smells.  Of particular note is
an interesting discourse that remains
incomplete on disguising one's self
as an opposing race - such as human
in the guise of a drow and vice versa.

You get the feeling your being called way south to track something or someone.

Desert....hot....arid.....calling to you!

The palms of your hands begin to get sweaty.

Desert....arid....hot....demanding your presence...must get there FAST

You begin to wonder if you will need assistance...maybe you should find a stout tank, a healer, an invoker....just in case.

A quick vision blurred...black dragon...and then it is gone.

Your eyes blurred your head pounds

The palms of your hands begin to get sweaty.

Must figure out black dragon

crap...daggers...rainbow...arms

The prisoner has escaped....must track and kill him MUST

You must kill the prisoner before he esacpes...but will he hide, sneak, or even attempt to run?

Oh GOD...he is lose and out of the desert...what is he up to..must find and destroy him

You think you can handle him now that he has escaped from Nizari...but where the hell is he going?

A red shape shouts 'HA - so you have come for me have you!'
A red shape shouts 'I have what you seek - though you are unworthy'
An insane prisoner shouts 'BRING IT ON!'
