The Quest: Episode one.
The first episode of the CYOA. Big thank you to Annie, who actually made most of the sets and took most of the pictures.
About this creation

Listen to the music as you read. It's just music, no lyrics.



Castle Dalrade, the crowning jewel of the many castles and caers that dot the countryside of Dalriada. Deep within its ancient walls King Adrian sits on his stone throne and governs the realm.



Today he has summoned five of the bravest Warriors of the Kingdom to his royal court.



King Adrian: "I, Lord and protector of Dalriada, have called you all here to serve me on a special mission. I have called you, Sir Bobert of the royal garrison. You, Suiauthon, elf of the Northern forests. You, Mark Aarons, archer of great renowned. You, Calebran, skilled swordsman of Elmtarid. And you, Alistana Evener, orc hunter of the eastern wastes."
*Pauses for breath*
"As you know, every year the Barbarian hordes amass on the shores of our good country. Burning and pillaging the coastal villages. Usually they are not much of a threat, an unorganized rabble. But this time I sense a keen, cunning mind behind their activity. I am sending you, to find this mastermind, and slay him before he brings his forces any farther inland."
*Dramatic pause*
"Do you accept this quest?"




Mark Aarons: "Of course my lord!"
Bobert: "We would die to serve you!"
Suiauthon: "The setting sun would shine naught upon us but shame if we were to refuse!"
Calbran: "My sword will sing in your service!"
Alistana: "Let's hunt."






Seer: “If I may my lord?”
King: “Yes my loyal counselor?”
Seer: “I have watched the stars, and have foreseen that five hero’s will save the land from peril. But I have also foreseen that evil will attempt to stop you. Take my advice and trust no one!”







Bobert: “No one, not loyal to the king will be trusted!”
Seer: “NO ONE! No matter what they say!”
Suiauthon: “Not even tongues made of honey will talk us off the path put before us.”
King: “Good, you must leave immediately.”
Seer: “Godspeed, and trust none.”






The five hero’s traveled all day. Across fields and through forests, climbing over hills and wading through rivers. Finally they arrived at a small inn to spend the night.





*In the Inn.*
Bobert: “Alistana darling, why do you never smile? A scowl mars your face whenever I behold it.”
Alistna: “Don’t call me darling again, or I’ll make sure to mar more than your face.”
Calebran: “The turkey is good.”






Bobert: “Well darling, if I have one last action, it will be to smear your face with a smile!”
*Bobert climbs onto the table*






Bobert: “Oh, there was an inn! A merry little inn! Where they served gallons of ale! The walls were made of rusty tin, and the roof of a rotting sail! The servingmaids were all missing parts, and the barman had no ears! He traded his soul for a big old cart, filled with lots of beer!”





Alistana is un- amused.







“Excuse me,” Says a new voice.
All heads turn to the new comer.
Bobert: “Excuse ME.
Mark Aarons: “He does that all the time.”






Newcomer: “Well, he’ll never do it again it again if you don’t heed me.”
Suiauthon: “Our ears are like that of the hunted fox, we listen.”
Newcomer: “Follow me now, or you will not live beyond this night. Trust me.”

End of Part one. Castlers, check into the group for your decision!




Elsewhere in the kingdom, a band of outlaws lies in wait for a treasure convoy.




Even Blackwood: “I would bet my waistcoat that there is enough gold in that chest to feed our families for years! The small amount of guards is but a guise.”
Owl: “aye aye, we just have to swoop on in there and the booty is ours!”
Michael: “We will be like noble hawks descending on our prey. The wind of our wings will blow away all of the troubles that now inflict harm upon us.”
Otis the Mighty: “Let’s just smash dem der heads be done.”
Lewic: “Grrrrrr.”





The bandits ready their weapons and prepare to attack.



“YoooooW!
A scream cuts through the thick spring air.
The outlaws turn their heads to see a small party of Barbarians leading a handcuffed Wood Troll.
The Barbarians are attempting to make the Troll cross a small creek. But like everyone knows, Troll are deathly afraid of water.



The Troll grits his teeth and digs his feet into the dirt, refusing to budge.
This angers the Barbarian, who begins to beat the Troll with the butt of his spear.

End of part two. Outlaws, check into the group for your decision!




Norin the Dwarvish blacksmith, and his human apprentice Koen, stand amidst the smoking ruins of their once beautiful village.
Koen: “I searched for others, but the smoke is so thick it’s hard to see.”
Norin: “I think it’s just you and me laddybuck, the Barbarians (curse them) must have dragged everyone else off in chains.”






“Not true.”
The two heads turn to the new voice.
Koen: “Sierra! Thank goodness you’re safe!”
Sierra: “I am, but they took my family. I’m going to find them, will you come?”





“That would not be safe.”
The three villagers peer to make out the two figures walking out from behind a pile of rubble.
Norin: “Edurius!”






Edurius: “And my brother, Alexander. Now what were you saying ma’am?”
Sierra: “I’m going to rescue my Mum and Dad and my little siblings.”
Edurius: “I advise against that, these Barbarians were in a much greater number than usual.”
Sierra: “But-“
Edurius: “I understand, my wife was taken, and I am more eager than anyone to rescue her. But I think they stand a better chance of being rescued if we go to a Caer and seek aid first. However, I will go with you if I cannot convince you otherwise.”













If you are participating in the CYOA! Go to the group, then go to the topic with the title of the party in which you are in, Outlaws/castle/village, I will give you a choice to make there, discuss it with the other members of your group and give me an answer. If you fail to show up in a weeks time, I will kill you off in the next episode. If everyone shows up and makes their decisions before a week is up, than the next episode will be up sooner.



Also, this is my first foray into Lego storytelling, so tell me what you think, and if you see room for improvement.

Thank you! For the smoke I just used GIMP to adjust the brightness and contrast.
