DAYSMAP
    Sonday, Jelly 30th:
While Sir Nicholas the Sturdy travels in South Nehkemton, he meets a sharp-witted damsel in a castle. She tells Sir Nicholas about suspicions that a mischievous miscreant hunts somewhere in the plain of North-East Nehkemton, 19 days ride away.

Sir Nicholas the Sturdy swears to overthrow this lethal danger.

Now - this is a good item description. Don't you love how that works? Now be honest. Would you rather have a lethal dagger that was capable of overthrow, or would you prefer the seemingly useless ____ of justice? Little do you know, the dagger only has a sharp tip, and the ____ is loaded with mace like spikes!

Sir Nicholas the Sturdy goes to the north peacefully through a plain in South Nehkemton

What makes one sturdy anyways?? Did he have four legs or something... I knew he was lying when he said he those two lumps protruding from his hips were bunions!!

Going east, Sir Nicholas the Sturdy comes upon an ugly merchant in a plain in South Nehkemton.

Pansy the Juggler shares stories with him. The merchant gossips about his friends.


While gossping with the juggular, err juggler, I realized that I mistook Sir Nick in frame one of our adventure! He said that he would overthrow this lethal danger... my bad. I thought he said he'd overthrow his lethal dagger...

So being the studious bard I am, I discovered that we are going to whack some mischevious miscreant. How fun!! Sir Nicholas the Sturdy is letting me carry the cooler, for when we put the miscreant on ice! Joy!!

    Thorsday, Augen 4th:
Journeying east, Sir Nicholas the Sturdy comes upon a crass bumpkin in a farm in South Nehkemton.

Van Zubble the Squire jokes with her. The bumpkin laughs.


Grrr. I am getting sick of this stupid cooler!! It'll be melted by the time we get there!!! At any rate - don't tell anybody, but I think that is why nick is so sturdy... he doesn't carry anything!!! He even needs someone to help him into his 1/4 ton iron armor! What a wuss!

    Friarday, Augen 5th:
Voyaging east, Sir Nicholas the Sturdy runs into an elderly peasant in a plain in South Nehkemton.

Van Zubble the Squire talks to him. The peasant chats with Van Zubble for a while.


Actually, it was the other way around, the elderly peasant was talking to Van Zubble... other that that, this sums up the day.

    Moonsday, Augen 8th:
Going east, Sir Nicholas comes upon a bandit in a plain in East Nehkemton.

The bandit's skill is equal to Sir Nicholas; and Sir Nicholas's ruse matches the bandit's resourcefulness, but the bandit's hardiness overwhelms Sir Nicholas. Sir Nicholas the Sturdy has been wounded by the bandit!
In the melee, Pansy the Juggler is injured!


Whoo! More action!! I whipped out my flamethrower and blasted the bandit to heck! However I cliped Pansy in the face accidentially.. oops.

Well Nick dont smell like poop anymore, and Pansy's 12th degree burns have healed, and she appears to have some bone structure in her face again.

    Friarday, Augen 12th to Satyrday, Augen 13th:
Sir Nicholas the Sturdy journeys to the east eventlessly, from a swamp in East Nehkemton to a river in East Nehkemton.

Well... it's been a long day, journeying and random monster encounters, I can't find it in me to write much more than that - I don't even get paid for this, what's up with that!!! I'm an embedded journalist for cryin out loud!!

    Sonday, Augen 14th:
Journeying north, Sir Nicholas confronts a thug in a plain in East Nehkemton.

Sir Nicholas far outclasses the thug. Sir Nicholas the Sturdy has decapitated the thug!

I knew that those Foreign Literature classes Sir Nick took would come in handy! He merely began composing a German novel and the thug's head popped off. Woot!

Sir Nicholas the Sturdy journeys to the north-east without incident through the plains of East Nehkemton.

Another day without battle. It's like a week without water... except you don't get dehydrated.

    Thorsday, Augen 18th:
Riding north, Sir Nicholas confronts a thug in a plain in North-East Nehkemton.

The thug's power is superior to Sir Nicholas's might, but Sir Nicholas's cunning overwhelms the thug...and Sir Nicholas's skill outdoes the thug's nimbleness. Sir Nicholas the Sturdy has driven off the thug!

That stupid thug!! He sewed his head back on and took 5 more courses in foreign literature. OH NO!! However, when Nick and he were having free-write faceoffs, Nick scored higher on the 6 point New York State Regent's rubric and easily defeated the thug!

Riding north, Sir Nicholas confronts a thug in a plain in North-East Nehkemton.

The thug's wisdom is too great for Sir Nicholas, yet Sir Nicholas's nimbleness outdoes the thug...also Sir Nicholas's toughness overcomes the thug. Sir Nicholas the Sturdy has slain the thug!

Finally, that stupid thug met his match. If I were Nick I woulda done him in long ago - but whatever, I suppose cutting one's head off is just not enough these days.

Sir Nicholas the Sturdy reaches the plain of North-East Nehkemton and finds a deplorable lion. Sir Nicholas the Sturdy falls back from it!
In the melee, Van Zubble the Squire is injured!


After 1 day, Van Zubble the Squire feels better.

A deplorable lion??? I personally wanted it to be deployable lion! Like a defence turret! You chuck it and it clings to the wall then gnaws off anyone's face that gets near it. Mmmm... I like carnage. More next time kiddies!!
