The Beginning
You grew up in the small village of Chiakor, a remote village with rich traditions, buried deep in the wilds.
Every year for as long as you can remember, your village has chosen a champion to send to the cursed Demon Realm.

Legend has it that in years Chiakor has failed to produce a champion, chaos has reigned over the countryside. Children disappear, crops wilt, and disease spreads like wildfire. This year, you have been selected to be the champion.

Character Creation
What is your name, Champion?
Male or Female?
If your are male, are you lean, average, or thick?
If female, are you slender, average, or curvy?
What is your skin color; light, olive, dark, or ebony?
What color is your hair, and how long?

Stats for the game include:
Strength - Increases your damage and enables the Strong Back perks if high enough.
Toughness - Increases your health points and enables the Tank and Regeneration perks if high enough.
Speed - Increases you chances to evade attacks, certain encounters and to run from a fight. Also enables the Evasion and Runner perks if high enough.
Intelligence - Increase the chance to withstand certain encounters. Spells are also easier to learn and cast.
Corruption - Shows how corrupt you've become since entering the Demon Realm. If high enough, you won't be known as the nice guy anymore. Nice thoughts and actions will be harder to perform if corruption becomes too high. Anger rises a lot faster when more corrupt.
Fatigue - Determines whether or not skills and spells can be used. Waiting, resting, and sleeping reduce fatigue.
Hit points - Your life. If it reaches 0, your enemy will find a way to corrupt your mind or body in some way, adding to your corruption.

Every person is born with a gift. What's yours?
Strength - Are you stronger than normal? +5 to strength
Toughness - Are you unusually tough? +5 to toughness
Speed - Are you very quick? +5 to speed
Smarts - Are you a quick learner? +5 to intelligence
Endurance - Are you energetic? Recover from fatigue 50% faster

Before you became a champion, you had other plans for your life. What were you doing before?
Alchemy - You spent some time as an alchemist's assistant, and alchemical items always seem to be more reactive in your hands. You are much more successful at making concoctions than the normal person, and can make others much more potent.
Fighting - You spent much of your time fighting other children, and you had plans to find work as a guard when you grew up. You do 10% more damage with physical attacks.
Healing - You often spent your free time with the village healer, learning how to tend to wounds. Healing items and effects are 20% more effective.
Religion - You spent a lot of time at the village temple, and learned how to meditate. Meditating will reduce corruption.
Schooling - You spent much of your time in school, and even begged the richest man in town, Mr. Savin, to let you read some of his books. You are much better at focusing, and spellcasting uses 20% less fatigue.
Slacking - You spent a lot of time slacking, avoiding work, and otherwise making a nuisance of yourself. Your efforts at slacking have made you quite adept at resting, and fatigue decreases 20% faster.
Smithing - You managed to get an apprenticeship with the local blacksmith. Because of your time spent at the blacksmith's side, you've learned how to fit armor for maximum protection. Increases armor effectiveness by roughly 10%.

Feel free to ask questions, and have fun if you decide to try! Also, this game is story driven, and every person will have a similar story line, so if you don't want anything spoiled, don't look at others posts. This could also be good for people not playing and reading what happens to see what differences the players actions are and other things.

I'm just kind of into seeing how other people play differently. Anyways, gl.

I heft the stick and spin it around a few times to get a feel of the weight and length, then practice incorporating it into my martial arts forms so I will be better prepared to defend myself with it. After I do this, I walk cautiously through the village ruins.

I ask for an antidote to the sleep potion.

"Oh! I almost forgot about that!" She slinks over to a box in a corner that contains many different potions and empty bottles. After nearly breaking a couple, she finally pulls out a potion that has a faint yellow glow surrounding the darker yellow liquid inside. She then gets closer to you, and puts her thumb on your chin, gesturing for you to open your mouth. You follow her lead, and you consume half of the contents. Slowly but surely, you can feel it working. She wanders into a room behind a small purple curtain, clinking glass bottles together from time to time. Eventually, you feel the potion work completely and you're no longer being affected by the chemicals earlier.

Now that you've come to your senses again, you can think properly too. The goblin must have her alchemy lab right behind those curtains. The sound of bubbling and brewing makes it even more obvious.

I then sit in the chair and obediently do whatever the goblin wants me to do.

After a few more minutes, she saunters back out from behind the purple drapes, and reveals multiple potions in her hands. She sets the three potions on a table a couple of feet away. The terrible scent of the potions wafts into your nose, making you cringe and a little dizzy as well.

It seems like she hasn't even acknowledged your question earlier to learn basic alchemy.

"Since you've been... somewhat nice... I'll let you choose which one I'll give you."

Wasn't she going to 'test'?

"I decided that I could do some tests later in time. Those aren't that important to me. I'm way more entertained by having someone choose a potion instead and see what the outcome is." she says. "Its usually hilarious, actually." she smiles, brightly. She waits a few seconds, then speaks again. "Well... time to get pickin'!" she insists, walking to the side for you to glimpse at the three potions.

The one to the left is deep blue in color, with white fumes slowly spilling out of the circular top of the flask.

The one in the center is a dark green color, and for some reason, looking at it makes you somewhat sick feeling. It could be because it resembles a goblins skin color.

The one to the right is bright pink, and very bubbly. The pink fumes rise slowly, gently colliding with the ceiling of the hut, and then dissipating.

You wind your way deep into the maze of dusty crumbling buildings and twisted saplings, looking for any sign of life â" or, failing that, something that can help you in your quest. Bending down to rummage through an old heap of rubbish, you complain aloud that this is hardly the sort of thing you expected to be doing as a champion. Suddenly, you hear a 'thwip' and something shoots past your face, embedding into the stone beside your head and trembling with the impact.

"Don't make any sudden moves!" A voice calls out, high pitched and a little squeaky, but firm and commanding. You freeze to avoid giving your assailant a reason to shoot at you again. "Stand up and turn around, slowly," it commands again.

I gather a dozen of the fruit and keep them in my pocket. I then practice using my 4 ft. bamboo stick for two hours before venturing deeper into the forest.

After stuffing your pockets with the strange olives and practicing with the bamboo, you set off into the forest some more.

After walking for a few minutes, it doesn't take long to come across something suspicious. A bush suddenly begins to shake and shift, and suddenly a goblin saunters out of the bushes with a dangerous glint in his eyes.

Before you have time to completely observe his character, he attacks you with a small wooden club; probably the largest he could handle, seeing as how he's around four feet tall.

You deftly avoid the goblins slow attempt to attack you.

Jeray2000, I forgot about the height thing. The next post I'll remember... hopefully xD You can go ahead and adjust it to how you want. Just keep it fair. Its much better to earn the muscularity and all the other things than to start off with them much higher or lower than normal.

I ask her again if I could learn alchemy from her, seeing as she is clearly a master at it, but if she refuses I accept the pink one. I agree to test whatever potions she wants. I stay with her as long as she wants and agree to testing more potions on a later date if she offers.

I continue to avoid the goblins attacks while attempting to trip him by swinging my weapon at his legs. If I'm able to trip him, I swing my bamboo pole at the hand holding the club. If I'm not able to trip him, I try to hit his torso from the side while throwing one of the strange olives at him.

You have been cornered by a very strange being: a bipedal female humanoid with the unmistakable features of a giant mouse; paw-like feet, a muzzled head with long whiskers, large mouse ears, and a body covered in dust-caked auburn fur. It doesn't look like she has had a very easy life; her clothing consists of a dirty, tattered set of pants and shirt, while her limbs and midriff are wiry, hardened as much by meals that are less than frequent as by constant exercise and physical exertion. Still, she looks quite capable of defending herself; not only is she brandishing a blowpipe, clearly ready to spit another doubtlessly-poisoned dart at you, but she has a formidable-looking knife strapped to her hip.

She looks at you for a few long moments, and then lowers her blowpipe, "I'm sorry about that, but I thought you were another demon. They destroyed this place years ago, but some of the scavengers still occasionally drift through. Not so much lately, of course. I've made something of an impression on them." She grins malevolently, one hand caressing the blade of her knife. "My name is Amily, the last survivor of this village. All of my people are gone now; they're scattered, dead, enslaved, or worse. What about you? Are you one of those... humans, I've heard sometimes wander into this world?"

I ask her again if I could learn alchemy from her, seeing as she is clearly a master at it

"Hmm." She places a finger on her lips. "Only if you can find what I need to continue making my potions, and then a little extra so that I can teach you... but only if you get the extra supplies. I can't go and waste any of my precious supplies, it requires a lot of concentration and I'm not a good multitasker, so I'd have to teach you when I have some free time!"

After nodding, you tell her you'd like to try the pink one. Jumping up and down, she claps very quickly and hops to the potions, grabbing the pink one. She then saunters to you, and puts it in your hand.

"Drink slowly, now. This ones strong."

You gently lift the lip of the flask to yours, and drink. As the thick, peach-tasting liquid flows down your throat, you begin feeling warm at first. After finishing, she takes the flask from you and watches eagerly at what happens.

For a split second, you feel intensely angry right when you feel the potions chemicals begin to take effect. You want to burn this entire hut down to the ground and get rid of this pathetic little go--

What just happened? You rub your eyes and come back once again to your clear thoughts. That was strange... (+2 corruption)

After a little more time passes, you feel your face become a little tingly. The goblins eyes widen for a moment as she watches what happens to it. After the tingling stops, you touch your face to see what happened, but there doesn't feel like any change. The goblin understands your confusion, and then reaches behind a counter small enough for a goblin to use, and pulls out an oval mirror. She brings it up to you for you to see your face. It looks slightly changed... and looks imperceptibly towards being more masculine. (+4 masculinity)

"You definitely look a lot cuter..." she suggests, giggling. "So, I have to come up with a name for this then if I want to sell it." Her gaze switches to you again. "You wanna help?"

Your pole connects with one of his legs, but the blow wasn't strong enough to make him fall.

If I'm not able to trip him, I try to hit his torso from the side while throwing one of the strange olives at him.

Easily, you slap his chest with the bamboo, surely knocking the wind out of him for a second. During that time, you chuck one of the weird olives at him. Surprisingly, you hit him in the eye with amazing accuracy, but it seems to have just annoyed him more than anything else.

He catches his breath, and then stares at you menacingly, readying his weapon and waiting for you to make the first move.

I reccomend the name Old Spice. I then have my character continue to make suggestions if she doesn't like that name. When I'm sent to get ingredients, I ask for a sack or backpack to put them in if she forgets to give me one, but don't insist on having one. I also make sure I know what ingredients I have to get when I'm sent to get them.

Quest: Get ingredients for Lumi
Benefits: Learn basic alchemy
Task: 2 Equine flowers; 3 Perudi olives; 6 Inken weeds

----------

I recommend the name Old Spice.

"Old... Spice?" Her finger meets her lips once again. "That doesn't sound so bad. Yeah... yeah. This is now Old Spice!" she says, holding the empty vial in the air. "Thanks, uhh... hmm... I never did get your name, did I? If you're going to be fetching me ingredients... I'm gonna need to know your name."

You tell her yours, and she returns the favor. "Mine is Lumi. Nice to meet you, David."

When I'm sent to get ingredients, I ask for a sack or backpack to put them in if she forgets to give me one, but don't insist on having one.

"Here, you can use my pouch." Before she hands it over, she cleans whatever she had in it out. "You've also got your pockets there for you to put any extras in if you're still interested in learning." She hands over her pouch, but the strap is too small to fit over your shoulder without it looking like a really small, adorable man purse. With a few minor adjustments, she lengthens the strap to where the pouch now lies comfortably at your right hip.

I also make sure I know what ingredients I have to get when I'm sent to get them.

"Well, I was thinking about trying something new... so how about this. Get me two Equine flowers which you could find near the lake, three Perudi Olives which you can find in the bushes of the forest, and I'll need six Inken weeds, which are found right beneath the shore of the lake. And remember, bring extras if you want to learn."

You explain to Lumi that you haven't yet found the lake.

"Oh? You must be newer than I thought." She walks away from you, disappearing behind the purple curtains again. A few moments pass, and she returns with a crudely drawn map. "I drew a path to the lake from here." she says, handing over the map. It seems if you want to visit the lake, you'd need to start here, then follow her instructions on the map from there.

"So, who are you?" I ask.

He grunts, his expression getting darker.

If he doesn't answer, I chuck another olive at him then swing my weapon at the arm holding the club.

You do so, swinging the olive, but this time he's prepared. Surprisingly, he swings his club quickly enough to bat it right back at you. Luckily, your swiftness allowed you to react just fast enough to where the olive zooms right past your chin.

He then lunges forward to swing at you with his club. He swings low, allowing you to jump over it. Before he has time to draw his weapon back to attack again, you swing the bamboo at his arm. As it connects, he grunts in minor pain, but the wooden club still remains in his strong grip. As he tries to recover, you have time to do something else.

"I sure am. I was sent here as the champion of my village."

She nods, almost surprised. You then can't help but ask her why she remains in this wasteland of a settlement.

"I was born here, I grew up here, and I would have gotten married and settled down here if it hadn't been for those demons." She spits the word 'demons' with contempt. "After it was all over, I had nowhere else to go. So I stayed here. I've still got nowhere else to go, to be honest. I haven't found any other settlements of my own people, and I'd sooner die than give myself over to the demons."

Well, I've got nothing else to do while I'm here other than beat up a few demons. We should team up."

I walk towards the lake, stopping at bushes to pick six olives, three to go in my pockets, three to go in the pouch. I then head towards the lake to pick the four equine flowers, two of which I put in the same pocket as the olives and two in the pouch. I then wade into the water to pick the twelve Inken weeds, six to go in the same pocket and six in the pouch. On my way back, I pick as many of the strange peach-like fruit to put in my other pocket. When I get back, I also ask for the same instruction of the peach-fruit as the other plants. If there are any other plants that look like they could be used for alchemy I see, I put them in the same pocket as the fruit.

If I have any confrontations with creatures, I try to talk my way out of it and leave as soon as I can, and if that doesn't work I try to run away.
