Next Deadline: Sunday, January 29th at 11:59PM EST
Josh Hay (Mr. Puff)
Dann Tuggles aka Dizzre
Perhaps you have actively chosen the route of the lone soldier. Perhaps you tried to form a team, but couldn’t gather enough members for the king to notice your efforts. Perhaps you sent me a text message at 3 AM saying “FFFFFFFF I slept through the deadline!” If so, this category is for you – this is ‘everyone else’.
Once the teams had left the island, you couldn’t wait to break out your adventurer’s pack! Some of the contents of the pack were consistent: Every pack contains the following items:
That’s right! A loaf of bread, two pieces of candy and a potion of-
Wait a minute.
Despite the presumably generous contents of your adventuring pack, noting that each of the items seems like it has some sort of special game-like properties, you realize that there is absolutely no explanation attached to any of these items. You scramble to find the guard and ask him what exactly these items do, but he shrugs his shoulders. Looks like the generous donation of King Daggerbeard doesn’t come without a bit of mystery. Thankfully, you at least know none of this stuff is harmful, otherwise you’d be worried about some of those spots forming on the loaf of bread.
In addition to the above contents, each pack also had a random something special that is unique to each person.
RedSunEternal – deck of playing cards, missing several cards
Itylhive – the blade of an axe with no stick
Josh Hay (Mr. Puff) – a couple sticks of cinnamon
Captainawesome – an obnoxious necktie
Dann Tuggles aka Dizzre – two halves of a boomerang
Hawkers89 – a shovel
Beau – a clean sock
Vaclav – a pack of bubblegum
Ryu89 – a bright red candle
Thornb123 – a bronze key with a mermaid on it
Stwarlord – a pocketwatch that doesn’t seem to tell the time
Wahoo McDaniels – a cracked monocle
Anthcul158 – a silver coin that seems really old
Rayner – a small rock that appears to be a meteorite
Sip – a list of random ingredients that means nothing to you
Knave – a purple crayon
Leocrow opens his adventuring pack to find the bread, candy, potion, and a seashell. Unexcited, he is about to close the pack when he notices a tiny stone at the bottom of his bag.
While he isn’t entirely sure what it is, he has the nagging feeling that it came under his possession entirely by accident – especially since he had already received the more than generous gift of a seashell! Whether or not he tells others about the rock is entirely up to him.
Once you’ve all finished admiring your objects, all of which are in no way shape or form useless at all, and all of which are clearly of equal value and not instead distributed randomly, you realize that for the time being you’re all stuck on an incredibly small island with no trees, no much of anything other than sand and a half-smashed dock from poor navigational skills.
