Modern Earth D&D

Trials and Such

Day One

How did you all meet up? At a minecraft convention in California. Lansy took a road trip with Neon [Lansy was so focused on driving, he didn’t remember Neon being there], Arctic took a plane, and Ender took a train. It was an awkward meeting. Like a really really awkward meeting. Except for maybe Lansy and Neon. Neon wandered off, Ender bought some trinkets, nothing else special happened at the convention. They had the same hotel room. Ender and Arctic shared a room while Neon and Lansy shared a room. Neon was too anxious and stressed so she went straight to bed and fell asleep. Great food was made (by Lansy and Ender) and you all fell asleep at the table. So many potatoes.

Arctic’s Trial: Trapped in a cement block, the walls are cement, the ceiling is cement, and the floor is cement. No windows, no doors, no way out. After some contemplation, she notices a brick on the left wall. At first she was going to pull it and then thought “maybe not” and pushed it. Wow. The wall separated itself and an opening appeared. Walking through, there is a bright hallway. At the end of the hallway is a table. This table has a loaf of bread and a bottle with green liquid it in. She tests the liquid by putting a drop on the table, then proceeds to chug it. Searing pain, bones crunching, and then, she’s even shorter than ever before (is now a halfling). An archway appears from the wall behind the table, she walks through. Arctic is in a forest, the trees seem to be a lot bigger and taller than she remembered. She happens to find a chest but tests it first, then proceeds to open it up. It has all of her equipment in it. Suddenly, she hears voices, and scrambles up a tree (stealthily). It’s two men in weird robes, that look shady, talking about the devil. She fires an arrow at one and kills it. The other one runs away, scared off. She jumps down the tree and chases after the guy, entering into a cave. SLAM! Behind her a gate, in front of her bright lights and a white room.

Lansy’s trial: Trapped in a cement block, the walls are cement, the ceiling is cement, and the floor is cement. No windows, no doors, no way out. Wow. Just..uhm..I wasn’t expecting it. Lansy decided to break his way out. It took awhile. I mean, the saying goes “if you don’t succeed, try, try again.” That’s exactly what he did. He took some damage from it. And has a dislocated shoulder, but he got through the cement somehow. The hallway is pretty lit. At the end is a table with cheese, bread, wine, other things. He tosses everything down, lays on the table, and the food reforms back on top of him. This happens for awhile as he shouts to nowhere. Finally, after claiming he wants freedom, an apple pie plops down and he shuts up and eats it. Unfortunately, he only feels some pain, and is meh. Not that different. A doorway appears and he steps through it. He hears screams and a battle is going on, a solider comes over and gets him, hands him his stuff, and Lansy sort of but not really joins the fight until the end. It was during the Civil War, he fought on the Union side (and won). He goes to the nurses’ quarters to get healed. SLAM! Behind him a gate, in front of him bright lights and a white room.

Ender’s Trial (my personal favorite): Trapped in a cement block, the walls are cement, the ceiling is cement, and the floor is cement. No windows, no doors, no way out. Wait a minute, what the fuck is that? Everywhere, weird symbols and whispers in the wind. A pentagram in the middle. After some time, Ender starts to figure it out, he can read the symbols, figures out the whispers, and can even speak some of this strange language. He says the password and the wall breaks away into an opening. The hallway is dark and empty, with more symbols, the whispering is louder. At the end is a skull on the back hall and a lever. He pulls the lever. The entire floor collapses underneath him. Ender decides he wants to be an acrobat and does magnificent flips through the air as he lands. It looks like half torture room, half weapons room. In the middle of the room is a pillar with a skull, and in it’s mouth is a strange black orb. Ender takes the orb, he feels immense pain, growing horns and a tail and his skin is strange. He takes the orbs, his equipment, and some chains and bones on the wall. He steps out in a cemetery. After some exploring, Ender finds a crypt. He finds a hidden door and sneaks down the stairs, finding some cultists. Ender convinces them he is Satan. After some intimidation and threatening, they point out a secret door. Ender goes through. SLAM! Behind him a gate, in front of him bright lights and a white room.

Neon’s Trial: Last but not least. Trapped in a cement block, the walls are cement, the ceiling is cement, and the floor is cement. No windows, no doors, no way out. Neon contemplates where is she. She takes forever figuring out what she wants to do. She’s just really confused, I mean, she didn’t even make it to dinner. Finally, she spots a brick in the cement wall on the right wall. She tentatively pushes it and the wall cracks open, into a hallway. The hallway is bright and at the end of the hallway is a table. There is a bottle with black and brown liquid and a loaf of bread. Neon tests out the liquid first and find it is very sluggish and that it feels like tar, it starts to burn. She pushes it off the table and it bubbles on the floor. Neon eats the bread, she is hungry after all. Searing pain, bones crunching, it feels like she is being stretched out in a ringer. When did the ceiling get closer, and the floor farther away? She reaches for a lever on the wall and an archway appears. She goes through it and is in front of a hospital. Neon walks through, there is devastation everywhere. A lot of sick and hurt bodies, nurses and doctors scrambling everywhere. Someone pulls Neon aside, asking for help, as they wheel a man on a cot. Neon gets a bunch of random equipment as she is dragged away to help this man. After a slight fail, Neon saves the man completely. Cheers all around. The guy that dragged her before is excitedly exclaiming her success, though he acts like she’s been there for 5 years, and takes her to the administrative office for a promotion. Neon walks through the door. SLAM! Behind her a gate, in front of her bright lights and a white room.

End Result: The group meets Carrisa, dressed in all black, and you can’t see her face. Tables with food and drink and comfy chairs are laid out everywhere. Waiting for one party member (Neon), she asks everyone to get comfortable and more will be explained when all has completed their trials. Eventually Neon arrives and now the fun can begin.
