My entry for The Guardian challenge for the Lands of Mythron group. Enjoy!
About this creation
On my way to Heartfire Inn, I have been lost in the forest, but recently I came across a shaded swamp area. In the swamp was the most vile creature: A leviathan, a monster of the water! In it's cave however, I spotted a rare set of armour, one used by the high warriors of old. There was only one thing between me and the armour. The Leviathan.
-Excerpt from the Tome of Zuronir
I peered out from behind a bush, seeing the monster dozing in the bubbling swamp.
My goal lay inside it's den, amongst jumbled piles of bones, the remains of it's former victims. A set of rare armour, worn by the high warriors of old!
I quietly sneaked nearer...
I jumped fowards, raising my sword for an attack...
I swung down, aiming for the beast's head...
Just as I swung down, it sidestepped, and I plunged into the side of the swamp!
Quickly rolling over, I summoned a blast of wind with my staff...
Thrusting the Leviathan into the cave wall, where it smashed off, and sunk into the swamp, dead.
Bird's eye view.
However, after I retrieved the armour, my staff and sword which I had dropped on the edge of the swamp, sunk into it, never to be seen again!
I am now lost in the forest, covered in slime, dirt, and blood, without a staff, or a weapon. My goal now, is to survive.
