The Adventures of Sir Fredrick
« on: February 24, 2016, 02:46:12 AM »
Idea from Loamhedge Abbey Forum.

 Okay so the goal of this game is to organize into two groups. You can write in one or two sentence bursts for your respective group.
 
The first group or 'Group A' is to keep Sir Fredrick moving as he goes about performing random adventures. His goal is to be successful in as many things as possible. 'Group A' can write Fredrick doing noble and proactive things trying to keep him from falling behind.

Example: Sir Fredrick climbs the treacherous mountain with incredible skill. As he surmounts the top he draws his sword to fight the dragon.

The second group, or 'Group B' does pretty much the exact opposite. They try to distract Sir Fredrick, trap him, or slow him down in any way possible, to a certain extent. Group B cannot kill, fatally harm or entrap Sir Fredrick in something that he could never get out of. Sucking him into a inescapable black hole isn't allowed.

Example of what's allowed: Sir Fredrick spots some friends in a nearby tavern. Leaving the doomed damsel in distress he goes to have fun.

We'll try to keep the story in a reasonable level of logic, and not do anything too crazy.

Also Group B has the advantage. For example if a member of Group B posts Sir Fredrick getting distracted by his friends it takes one Group A member to get Fredrick undistracted, and a second to make him start doing noble things again.

If more then one group B member posts in a row then they can just keep ruining Sir Fredrick's day.

Does this all make sense? Let me know if you have any questions, and on your first post state what group you want to be in before ruining or advancing Fredrick's noble tale.

~~~

Group A: Chipster-roo

Group B: Foxbrow, Hammy, Vesper, Bright Side

~~~

With a sword at hand and money in his bag, Sir Fredrick set out from the castle to find and kill two notorious murderers.

What a shame this didn't have any replies already.

Am I forced to join the second group, considering it has no members yet?

I'll gladly join the ranks of wrongdoers.
Without troubles and obstacles to overcome, there can never be any real adventure.

Cool! And well said, too.

Fredrick found the two murderers at once and pursued them. They appeared to be dim-witted and terrible fighters.

An opportunity to ruin a fictional character's day arbitrarily? Count me into group B.

However, the murderers turned out to be versed in rudimentary philosophy. As soon as he had caught up to them, they appealed to the idea that Sir Fredrick would only be sinking to their level should he kill them. Being a thoughtful man, Sir Fredrick halted his attack to ponder the deeper ethics of this situation, allowing the murderers time to escape.

I'm joining group A.

Sir Fredrick eventually came to the conclusion that while killing the murderers was probably not the best course of action, he should still deliver them to the proper authorities.  Only then did he realize that they were nowhere to be seen.

Having in mind, that he wishes to deliver those murderers to justice and that the Justice is known to be blind, Sir Frederick wrapped a piece of cloth around his head.
Being now the true representation of justice, Sir Frederick set out again. Unfortunatelly in a different direction than where the murderers escaped.

After bumping into a few trees and other obstacles, Sir Fredrick determined that being blind is not very practical, so he removed the cloth.  However, he realized that he was far away from the place where he had last seen the murderers.

Thankfully for Sir Fredrick, he had come to a high cliff. Although the murderers were far now, they were not too hard to find. Especially when they were stupid enough to put up a giant bulletin board that indicated their location.

Considering the cliff was so high and there was no apparent way down to the murderers' location, Sir Fredrick decided it best to jump down.

"It's not so high," he told himself. "Surely, I'll be fine." And he jumped.

The cliff was much higher than Sir Fredrick had first expected.  Luckily, there was a deep river at the bottom, so he was unharmed by the fall, apart from a few minor scratches.

Only then Sir Frederick realized how minor problem the scratches are. He was just about to find out how difficult it is to swimm when wearing a shiny but also heavy metal armour.

It's practically impossible and Sir Frederick began to drown.

A random guy happened to be fishing in the river. He took the armor off, saved Fredrick's life, and healed his wounds as a consolation gift.

Sir Fredrick then got up and burst into the murderers' hideout.  They were playing a card game of some sort and one was accusing the other of cheating.  They were too absorbed in their argument to notice his presence.
