CCCX Daring Escape . This is my Entry into the CCCX Daring Escape Category. I had to build three scenes depicting the capture, escape, and final result of a character. . Scene One:
As told by Sir Tharkin...
I was out taking a leisurely stroll in the woods where upon I stopped to enjoy the sight of a beautiful birch tree and rested upon a nearby rock. Then, over the sound of the birds chirping and the wind whistling its way through the trees, I heard a faint cracking - a crunching! At first I thought nothing of it; a wild turkey perhaps, or a squirrel. Yet the sound repeated and I was but just reaching toward the hilt of my sword when two scruffy road side bandits jumped out from amongst the brush!
O, I fought spectacularly, the sun glinting off the blade of my sword, as it made a slithering crash upon the sword of the rogue. Alas I was overpowered, and they bound my hands and marched me off into the glen....
...they marched me through the glen for what seemed like hours, when suddenly, a shape loomed up from within the misty trees. A tower! Surly it was not of their make, for it was too well-constructed and beautifully detailed. the rouges must have found it abandoned, and refurbished it. They imprisoned me inside a musty dark cell and left me their to ponder my fate. I soon realized that the motive of the fiends was to ransom me, and I strengthened my resolve not to let so much as one coin of gold leave my nations coffers on my behalf! I waited until the cover of twilight before smashing in the ornate window and tossing down a rope I had created using the moldy bedsheets they had supplied. Upon reaching the forest floor, I scampered off into the night and was long gone before they woke...
Here is the third part of our entry to the CCCX Daring Escape Category. Don't worry, we didn't forget part two, we just decided to do the two smaller ones first. We should be done the second part sometime in the middle of the week. :)
...and so the tale ends here in this grimy little tavern, my friend, with me recounting my adventure to you.
"But what of the bandits? Surely they will seek revenge?"
Indeed, they will try, however they will most certainly not catch me off guard again! I will be well prepared if they are foolish enough to strike again...
