Admittedly I was dubious of this Quest game, a series of challenges in order to win admittance to join the running of the Wraiths, a further challenge in itself.
Well I was wrong, it was hell fun. I test of patience, a test of arms & a test of humour & riddle solving. I was however bamboozled by the following riddle (and it was so OOC): Why was Elton John the only one to preform at Princess Diana's funeral? Answer: Because he was the only Queen who gave a damn. Yep, I could have throttled you Alista.
And the test givers name: Rumplestiltskin, yep, got that one first guess.
Incidentally that test was copmpleted through arms, as the test giver turned out to be a lying salesman type who took my gold & was cut down by a party member in a stealthy manner not worthy of mention (even though it was effective).
Without a blow by blow, all entrants were granted permission to run with the Wraith & my alias for the night, Erwyn, an honest cleric of Phuque (said Fook) & lover of fine wine won the day, snatching 2 ribbons from the wraiths belt & suffering only minor scratches.
The remaining entrants scrabbled for second place.
It was a great opportunity for everyone to play both in character & also as crew in the same night & served as a very good introductory game for 2 new players who turned up on the night.
Thanks all who turned up, I'm sure we'll see more dynamic games like this in the future of Quest.
