The wishing fountain - everyone can play

Post by BadgeAddict » Wed Jun 05, 2019 10:05 am

A goblin village adventure.

A powerful wizard has contacted the chieftain of your village and has offered the reward of his protection if you'll do something for him.

That something, he explains:

"I have found the fountain of wishes, hidden in the bottom of the dungeon of unfathomable deadliness in the plane of "best to be forgotten".

I can create portal straight to the fountain… But alas, it is a one way journey and you'll have to find your own way back. All I ask is that you bring back a cup of the water from the fountain and you'll receive your reward of being under my protection forever.

I have enough power saved up to send 4 of you immediately and every few days I can send more of you. He gives each of the first 5 volunteers a cup and begins to wake his hands and chant. The air begins to shimmer as a portal takes shape."

(This is your typical adventure with a twist. You start at the end and have to escape.)

(Name yourself, grab a cup and jump through the portal. No recruitment, first come first jump.)

On the other side of the portal, leaps finds himself in a comfortably sized room. Cups, all looking very similar to the one he brought with him, litter the floor.

In the center of the room is a large bubbling fountain made of gold and studded with diamonds. Surrounding it and 4 additional fountains.
One is made of Ruby, one is made of emerald, one is made of pearl and one is made of stone.

On one wall of the room there is a very normal looking wooden door.

(Top down map pictures will be uploaded in the evenings)

The central fountain being the first he saw, Leaps-Recklessly cheers and jumps into the fountain, scooping up a cup.

The water in the large Central fountain seems to come alive, wrapping leaps within it's cold wet embrace, filling his lungs with it's love. When his body stops moving and his heart stops the water ceases it's movement and continues gurgling as happy as before. Though this time with the dead body of leaps floating in it

Collects-Cups grabs an extra and jumps through... His eyes going wide as he cries in delight at the cups littering the floor. When he recovers, he begins gathering up as many as he can carry.

Collects-cups is able to gather 25 cups up in his arms, but there's still so many everywhere.

He looks around for something he could put them in, or if they have handles, something he could string them together on. That's when he notices Leaps body, and gives the fountains a wide berth.

Cups is frustrated by the lack of a holding device for the cups, having no string on his person and a lack of handles is making his cup collection very hard to manage.

The floor is covered almost completely with cups, so many that it's impossible not to step on one when walking. But cups isn't able to find any bags.

He throws one of the less special cups at Leaps, just to make sure the other goblin isn't playing a trick on him.

Cups loses control of his collection of cups as he chucks one of them at the back of leaps head. It bounces off his head and splashes into the fountain.

Cups starts stacking cups against a wall. The work is slow and tedious as he knows to be careful to not knock over the towering stacks. Having no moon or sun to track the time doesn't make it stop passing and in time the hard work starts making him very thirsty.

Having avoided the fountains in his efforts, he's cleared about 10% of the floor space and condensed it into neatly arranged stacks.

Agrees-with -everyone hears the request of the wizard and, of course, agrees to go help him out.

He takes a cup and hops into the portal.

Agrees walks through and finds collects cups friggin out in corner by himself with stacks of cups. Otherwise, agrees sees the giant fountain with the floating corpse of leaps recklessly and 4 other fountains.

"Um, Ok." says Agrees. "What happened to him?" pointing at Leaps.

He will wait for a moment to see if he gets an answer. After that he will begin to look at the different fountains. Checking to see if there is anything written or drawn on them that might explain why there are so many fountains.

"I thought he was faking, but I think he's dead... drowned?"

"Or maybe the water is poison... I haven't tried it. Why don't you give it a go?"

Agrees walks around, giving each fountain a good long look and notices that the water looks different in the different fountains.

The Ruby fountain contains liquid that has a reddish hue and has small bubbles on it's surface.

The emerald fountain contains a liquid with a slimy green color.

The central fountain contains a dead body and the liquid seems to move of it's own volition.

The stone fountain contains a liquid that looks like water fresh out of a clean river, crystal clear.

The Pearl fountain contains liquid that looks like milk.

Always-Thirsty has heard the promise of a fountain at the other end, and asks the Wizard: "Do you know if the fountain's water is drinkable?"

Wizard: I can't promise you that there won't be many dangers along the way. As to the fountain itself, I'm certain whatever is in it can be drank, legend even tells that it has restorative properties. We'll find out when you bring me a cup.

Always-Thirsty grabs a wooden log with a slight indenture, which can barely be used as a cup, but it can hold a bit of water, and says "I'm thirsty. Eh... I'm ready."

The wizard makes a lot of noise and does a lot of hand and arm waving and then helps thirsty get through the portal that forms.

Thirsty finds himself standing in a room with 5 fountains.
(For minimal writing purposes, you see the descriptions above)

He sees the room littered with cups, he sees collects-cups being weird in the corner and he sees agrees walking around looking at the fountains.

Collects-Cups wanders around, looking for a cup large enough to wear as a crown.

Collects-cups is sorry to find that all of the cups on the floor are exactly the same, maybe there's something that could be a crown through that door in the wall.
