The four adventurers first heard of the Cavern of the Glittering Sea years earlier, stumbling across an ancient tome that spoke of it while they were sacking an evil aberration's keep. At first, they had dismissed it as nothing more than the imaginings and folktales of some forgotten people, but they continued to find references to the fabled cavern, making them less and less certain of their initial scepticism. While the details often conflicted, all of the tellings agreed that there was an immense underground chamber somewhere in the realm that housed unimaginable wealth. Wealth that they desired for themselves.
So I was playing Dungeons & Dragons yesterday. Can you tell?
While the adventure my friends and I currently pursue is rather different than the above tale, this is certainly inspired by the stories of fantasy and heroism that are so common in pen and paper roleplaying games.
As you may have noticed, I've been getting into the habit lately of continuing some of my stories from earlier posts. Well, I think I'll take it one step further and write myself a little tale about these adventurers and their cavern that will be told over the next few days in 100 words snippets. I initially started these 1 Character 100 Words postings to practice and experiment, so experiment we shall.
I hope to see you back here tomorrow for the next part of this epic quest, whatever form that may take.
