Time in My Hand

left-aligned image
The swirliness that results after you finish your purchases is rather gentle and pleasing, like a carnival ride of sorts. When all is said and done, you appear to be standing on a grassy jutout from a large, slightly Persian looking castle. It's very ornate, and goes rather nice with the Dark Endless Abyss that appears to be everything else around here. Don't step off the edge, etc. The sky, at least, is a pleasing nighttime to go with the empty black void down below, and a bit of cool crisp night-time air whisps about.

An overly large double door stands before you, ostentatious and ornate. You wonder whether someone actually carved out all the little depictions of elephants and palaces and that one's probably obscene, before shrugging and remembering that magic can copy lots of things. They probably only had to do each design once. "Oh goodness, the entertainment showed up! You're not the pizza boys, but I guess you'll do."
WELCOME TO THE CASTLE OF FATE
Risk and Reward Go Hand in Hand

Your arrival has roused LORE, THE SCION OF CARDS from her gaming room.
Left unchecked, she will corrupt heroes around the world
Then eat them. She likes to play with her food.

Will you triumph? Let's watch!

Have 'fun'!


"Now then, what do you hope to get out of storming the castle? Very important, be honest here."

Chris peers around at the changing scenery, sighing, "Scene wipes in real life are just weird."

When the Sphynx talks, Chris considers charging it. This is clearly the boss of this level after all. But this place has weird rules and she has a strong feeling attempts like that would end poorly.

So instead she answers honestly, "Short term? I want to regain more strength. Your castle contains portions of that strength, as well as items that will aid us in future endeavours."

"Long term we want the Core of Antwerth back. The more insanity I see in this place the more I know that this crazy bastard shouldn't have it."

"I don't suppose you will just go get teh item and give it to us..? You can then keep your castle, un stormed."

"You misunderstand. I *like* people storming the castle. It's fun!" For certain levels of spectator sport, you suppose. "See, I could just wipe you all out right now with some rock falling nonsense, but that's boring, and definitely Rude. So hmm... what to do today..." She ponders for a few seconds, then has a revelation of doom. "Yessss... I believe that your fate shall be in the cards." So saying, a deck of 24 large ornate cards shuffles into existence.
  • These cards help you progress further. They open doors that lead on, or chests with phat loot. Balance your prizes and your progress.
  • Additionally, one card is deducted every hour. Don't squander your time! A random effect(good or bad) will occur whenever this happens, because it's funny.
  • You may choose to spend 3 cards to get a peaceful full night's sleep. The usual 1/hour rate does not apply when using this power.
  • Running out of cards is a Bad Idea.
"Don't glare like that. It's far better than unleashing the lizards. I think their record was 12 traps in a single hallway. This method is far better. Quality over quantity."

FimiRaising an eyebrow at the floating deck, Fimi asks aloud, "So we have 24 hours? I thought you wanted a true game, not a damn race. And I assume you wouldn't be willing to give us any more cards, even for a fellow purveyor of chaos?"

Shuffling his feet, Fimi begins thinking. Traps certainly aren't his strong suit, so hopefully Axle can mostly take care of that stuff. If not, they might be in trouble.

"Now now, 24 hours is more than enough time. Especially since you can spend 3 to call it a day. It's more a matter of greed: how much loot are you willing to take with you?"

Chris ponders this, then shrugs, "Beats rocks falling or dealing with fourty thousand traps."

An idea comes to mind, "How about an extra rule? We can choose to have an extra random event happen whenever we want, in return for an extra card? Wouldn't that fit in with your goal of Greed..?"

Fimi"So, what's preventing us from just going, killing/disabling you, and then looting everything?" Hearing Chris's suggestion, Fimi jumps a bit in place. "Ooh-ooh-ooh! What (s)he said!" He wasn't sure how he was able to pronounce the parenthesis, but he managed.

"The castle doesn't work that way. No going back after the boss fight. So mean, I know." She likes your suggestion, though, and adds it to the rules.
  • You may call down a Random Event to regain 1 card. It will always be a Neutral or Bad roll if activated in this way(no Good rolls).

Chris smiles, then lets out a bit of a sad sigh, "So far everyone in this dungeon has been surprisingly pleasant, when not trying to kill us. I actually feel a little bad for all the mass murder we have been doing, even though I know about the resurrection policy."

"Welp, we will see you later on then when we are trying to carve your heart out of your chest with weapons and items stolen from your own castle."

And after a glance to make sure the others are ready, Chris turns and heads toward the front door.

Inside is a nice little entryway. Rounded(30 diameter), with a small mosaic in the middle of the phases of the moon. A hat rack and shoebox have helpfully been added. The place has the feel of one of those Byzantine cathedtrals, with the gold paint trimming and the ornate etchings. Very scenic, though you don't have a camera. Light shines lazily down from a small dome above you.

Three doors are here, marked THIS, THAT, and THE OTHER. They are all unlocked.

Myr circles the room mildly nonplussed while looking for anything to differentiate the separate doors. After a first pass he waggles his fingers into a simple detection spell and passes by each once more before averting his gaze to the source of the light above. He reaches up blocking the light from his eyes.

"I say we open the OTHER," he says managing to intone the capitol letters with unnecessary gravity.

Myr looks back and forth between the others and nods while flexing his gauntlets and adds, "That is, unless strategy guides suggest otherwise."

The strategy guide's main opinion is "Don't forget about the guinea pig." It also has a solution to the sliding cheese puzzle, and suggests that if the game isn't running smoothly to free up disk space. Whatever that means.

Fimi"Guinea Pig? What's that supposed to mean?" Fimi ruffles his rat eyebrows, obviously a wee bit confused. "As for the doors, The Other is perfectly fine with me. There seems to be no indication of difference, so they all probably wind up at the same place anyway. It'd be cheaper, after all."

You enter THE OTHER. 24 cards remain...

This appears to be a stairwell of sorts(15x15). To your left is a door marked BACK TO THE DOOM. The upstairs leads to the BEDROOM, the downstairs leads to THE KITCHENS. Someone has helpfully left a sleeping black cat on the upstairs, for you to trip on. He shows no signs of getting out of the way, now or ever. Cat moves for no hero.

The door you came in from has disappeared, and gone on its break. It might be back later, if it feels like it.

The music is pretty hip, but will become more urgent as time runs out.

Fimi"I wonder whose cat this is? Or, at the very least, who is this cat?" Looking about, Fimi points at the bedroom. "I suggest we go in there first. Get that out of the way, and seriously, how deadly could a bedroom be?"
