LCC Global Challenge V Entry - Destitute!

Postby Gavin of Lockwood » Fri Aug 23, 2013 1:18 am

"Thanks for your hospitality, that was the best meal I've had in a long - Oh! Hi there!"
Gavin was just leaving a small cottage where he had slept that night and breakfasted when he ran into soldiers, dressed in red and black.

"How do you do, gentle-"

"Shut up!" The soldier demanded.

Gavin was shocked at this outburst and rudeness. "Excuse me, sir? Are you speaki-"

"Yes! I am!"

Gavin was silent, angry, and thoughtful.

"By order of her majesty the queen, you are to-"

"Whoa whoa whoa, my friends. Her majesty? What happened to Prince Jarius?"

" 'Prince' Jarius was deposed, in favor of her majesty. Now will you please SHUT UP?"

The mage was confused, but he listened to what they had to say.

"By order of her majesty the queen, you are to hand over all weapons to our hands. This includes: swords, bows and arrows, spears, javelins, knives, slings, mattocks, axes, hatchets, saws, pitchforks, etc., etc."

The farmer, his wife, and Gavin were shocked.

"Everything. NOW." The soldiers demanded.

In a few minutes, everything was in a heap at the soldiers' feet.

"And that," pointing to Gavin's staff.

"This? Oh, but -"

"NOW."

Gavin decided it was best not to argue. He handed it slowly, reluctantly.The soldier snatched it out of his hand, broke it and tossed it into the pile carelessly. Gavin's anger was about to boil over, but he managed to keep it in check, and keep a simple smile on his face.

The soldiers dumped everything into the farmer's wagon. The farmer's wife burst into tears and turned toward the door. The soldiers laughed evilly and left the farmyard taking the wagon with them, leaving the farmer and his wife without tools, a wagon, or anything. They were left destitute.

Such was the ruthlessness of "her majesty the queen".

His magic is now limited. His staff caused him to be able to do mass destruction/ killing, etc. But he can use mind tricks, fire, etc. ; )

Thanks so much guys!

Nice cottage! I love it when people build things at an angle like that and the overall design of the cottage is both quaint and realistic. Great entry!
