A man stands at the stand of a stage.Behind him are a crowd of people,warriors,clerics,sorcerers, and just about anyone else..
The man smiles, a fake smile, and starts talking.
"Hello, and welcome to 'who wants to be a millioner'!"
"This is our first pilot show, and so I'll tell you whats going to happen."
The man points to four doors.
"Behind these doors lie four different dangers.What we need is four voulenteers from our studio audience!
"The voulenteers will each pick a door, and then enter it, not knowing what they will face.
"Those who survive will each recieve a million silver pieces!"
And, in a whisper;"Oh, and if more than one survives, there will be more dangers!So don't go away!"
(OOC:I'd like four peeps, but I'll survive three.And please, no superpowers,superweapons,superspells, the like.)

09/20/2000 7:16 AM

(OOC:All right, just enter!)
Jax, Aestas and Claw are teleported magicly.Jax into door 3,Aestas into door 1, and Claw into 2.
Before Jax stand a council of Blue wizards.They seem suprised at his entry.
One of them shouts."A Red Wizard!Destroy the enemy!"
All the mages cast either Fireball,Magic Missle, or Lightning Bolt at Jax.
Aestas stands before a lair of what seems to be Gold dragon, judging by the golden scales scattered among the large truesure pile in the middle of the cave.Nothing moves, and the dragon seems to be gone.
Claw finds himself in what seems to be a normal village.Before him are children playing...no, these are kender playing!And they are aproaching Claw now, with no-one else to amuse them!
And now the village seems enclosed, as a magical shield forms around it.

IC: Jax is a Red WIzard of Thay, a 18th level mage(no specialty) renegade.

Jax quickly casts Prismatic Sphere around him to protect him from the onslaught of spells then prepares a Invisiblity spell....

Jax dispels the sphere as he moves up behind the council and then blasts them with a very nasty cone of cold, then prepares another spell as he ducks behind a table.

*Seeing the children approach, Claw grins. It wasn't well known, but Claw already had many years of experience with human children before. Surprisingly Claw had always enjoyed the encounters. Seeing the first child approach Claw's smile grows larger. Reaching out his arms, Claw extends long silver taloned fingers and decapitates the up to this point happy child. Unsheathing a barbed sword, Hooded cuts the next child in two. The torso flying off in some random direction. Seeing the children retreat, Claw shouts a draconian war cry and persues the "army" of children.*

One of the blue mage's is demolished by Jax's spell, but the others survive.
One casts Fire Ring, preventing Jax from getting to close to them, and one of the others casts Disperse Invisiblty.
Jax appears, and the mage's begin to cast a very powerfull spell that could destroy Jax and his Prismatic Shield in seconds...
The kender's that Claw had killed begin to reform, and with smiles on thier faces, they start to regale him with stories about thier adventures.
Ocasanailly a kender is decapatiated, but he just reforms and keeps on talking.The kender suround Claw...

*Claw decapitates kender after kender, but they keep regenerating. Unable to take their incessant chatter any longer, Claw falls his knees and grabs his ears with both hands as if in great pain.*

(ooc: Just to help you out here, Joe. It takes nine specific spells in a specific order to destroy a Prismatic Sphere. However, you don't have to worry about it, as Jax is not in the sphere anymore....one, they don't move, and Jax has moved; two, Jax dispelled the PS.)

Thus is my stance. I stand firm.

A large gold dragon comes out of his cave and stands before Aestas.
"What are you doing here?!" he roars.
(OOC:If Aestas doesn't reply, he's just going to eat her.)
The Blue wizards cast Firewall on every part of the chamber except where thay stand.
A fire shield spell wouldn't stave it off for long, and Jax wouldn't have time to cast Prismatic Sphere before he dies.
The kender sorounding Claw back away, and leave him as he was, except for one small diference.He is now a kender.

One last contestant shoots enthusiastically out of the crowd. "Sorry!" She pants, "I was in the bathroom. Is there still room for one more? I really want to do this!!!! PLEASE?!??!?!?" Kirtau Moonhammer is a kender, slight for her race and extremely blonde and fair skinned. Her blue eyes sparkle emmensly as she gazes hopefully at the host and co-hosts.

Jax casts a lightning bolt at the wizards then readies a summoning spell.

"All right, you can enter!"The host says and pushes Kirtau into door #4.
She is in a cave,with two passages, left and right.There is a sign in front of her: "If you go,then go correctly!"
The blue wizards succed in summoning a very powerful demon despite the death of another of them.They order the demon to kill Jax, and cast two Fireballs in his direction too.

Kirtau stares at the two passages. "Hm . . ." She ponders, "I've never been down both, but I can't go down both at once, unless maybe I were a mage and could somehow copy myself. Boy, that would be cool!" She giggled. "I could make lots of mes and we could explore everything and then I'd pull all of myselves back into one and I'd know everything there was to know, like what was down both of these tunnels. Hm, one is left, and one is right. My grandfather always said there is no right path, only what's left, which usually gets explored sometime by a well-traveled kender. I know I'll be well-traveled someday, and if I win the million silver pieces, I can go anywhere, well, technically I already can, since I'm like my mother, but still, one million silver pieces! I bet I could buy a dragon with that! I'd buy a silver one, for sure. But dragons really don't seem like the kind of thing you'd buy or sell, now that I think about it. That would indicate that they were property, like a chair or something, and I know they have rational thinking, or at least I think they do, so they can't be like furniture. Well, I guess they could be considered a type of furniture since one does sit on a dragon to ride it, but certainly not to be sold like a chair. I know, I'd buy a boat! Then I could sail anywhere! I'd sail all over Krynn! I would be the most ultimate traveled kender!" Kirtau stuck out her chest at the thought. "Well, what does this sign say? "If you go,then go correctly"? Hm . . .correctly isn't incorrectly, which in a sense is wrong, which is the opposite of right, which means I should take the right tunnel!" With that, she starts singing a bouncy kender traveling song as she skips down the right hand tunnel.

*Claw feels kender instincts invade his mind. The need to "borrow" things becoming an almost irresistable craving. Refusing to let his mind be tainted. Claw runs up and strangles a kender on principle. The urge to be friendly grows however, Claw mutters a prayer to Takhisis for strength.*

As Kirtau steps down the right way,a small red dragon comes out of the left passegeway.It follows her, and then when it finds her,jumps onto her back.
Claw's form vibrates for a second,and then returns to kender normal.Two kender,male and female,take his hands and try to lead him to dance.

Kirtau giggles at the attack. "Stop it! That tickles!!" She rolls onto her back and looks up at the attacker. "Hey cool! A real dragon! What's your name? Mine's Kirtau Moonhammer! I'm on a mission to win one million silver pieces! Isn't that cool? I'm determined to win it, 'cause then I'd buy a boat and travel all over krynn and be the most widely-traveled kender and I'd draw all these maps and experience many adventures that I could tell people about and I'd be very famous; people would love it when I visited their town! They'd put me on their shoulders and sing about me! I'd be known forever! Don't you think that would be cool? Hey, why don't you join me? Then we can travel together and you can be famous too!" She looks expectantly with brightly sparkling blue eyes at the dragon for its response.

Joe_Ghostbuster

The baby dragon looks at Kirtau with melting eyes and roars mournfully.
The roar sounds like a word,"Moome!Moome!"

"Aw, you're lost, aren't you?" Kirtau realizes. She pets the dragon's head lovingly. "I'll help you find your mother." She leads the dragon further down the tunnel, her hand reassuringly on it's neck. "I got seperated from my mother once. We were at Palanthas and were in the middle of the market when I found this beautiful butterfly necklace dangling out of my pouch. Well, obviously someone had dropped it, but I coulnd't find them right away so I tucked it in my pouch so that it would be safe incase anyone asked about it and this guard suddenly calld mecut-purse, can you believe it?- and chased me through the city! It lasted all night until I was able to get past the city gates, and that's when I realized I had lost my mother." She thought for a moment. "I still don't know where she's gone off to . . ."

*Urging his will, Claw grabs the female kender around the throat and strangles her with one hand while driving a thumb through her left eyesocket. Turning to the other kender, Claw "borrows" a knife without realizing. Giggling happily, Claw drives the blade right into the kender's heart. Suddenly feeling kender style guilt, Claw falls to the ground fighting off kender instincts.*

Claws form wavers once more,and almost the draconion is himself again,but as the guilt hits he is once again a kender.
A kind human cleric of Mishkal comes to his aid."What has happened, little kender?Come with me."
And the cleric carries Claw to Mishkals temple.

Kirtau finds herself in a wide cave with three openings.From one comes a red light,from one comes a blue light,and from the other comes a roar as if of a monster roaring in anger.

"There, I think we found your mother!" Kirtau replied happily at the roaring creature. "Boy, she sure doesn't sound too happy. How long have you been away? Mothers can be quite strange at times, I'll tell you. I knew this human boy who left home to follow a snake in the grass near his home and he didn't get back until nearly dinner time and man, did his mom let him have it! We kender never really understood it; our parents would have shoved us out the door if we weren't running so fast. Ah, it was always great to play out in the sun! I remember one time I was out with my friend Tolkanin and we decided to visit Mithra and see if Minotaurs really drink their own milk, but on our way we joined a band of gypsies and traveled with them all the way to Solace! Anyway, while there we met this really famous kender-you ever heard of Tasslehoff Burrfoot?-and we stayed with him for nearly a week listening to all of his great stories! Here, he gave me this ring which was in his pouch; isn't it pretty? It doesn't fit me very well, but I'm going to put it on a chain and wear it around my neck someday. Hey, want to see what I have in my pouches?" Kirtau hears the creature in the cave roar again, and she sighs. "Well, maye some other time. Your mom isn't too patient, is she? Well, lets go!"

Joe_Ghostbuster
10/07/2000 3:39 PM

As Kirtau enters the cave,she finds a very large Red dragoness.
"My Baby!"She cries."You kender!What have you done to my baby!Give him to me or else!"
Aestas gets eaten by the Gold dragon.
The Demon eats Jax.

Kirtau motions for the baby dragon to approach his mother. "He was lost a little ways back." She explained. "Poor guy, you probably shouldn't let him off on his own until he knows his way around better; something could have happened to him. So how are you? Oh, I'm sorry! I've been completely rude! I am Kirtau Moonhammer, Kender Extrodenair!" Kirtau gives a sweeping bow, "I'm on my way to win a million silver pieces! Don't you think that's cool? I certainly do. I'm destined to win it and then I'll travel all over Krynn! Have you been all over Krynn? It must be easy with those big wings, you could go anywhere with those! Why, I bet you could even go to the moons! Have you ever been to any of the moons? If I could go to one of the moons, I'd go to Siltari, because it's silver. I've always liked silver. Of course, I'd still be really excited if I got a chance to go to Lunitari. That would be really neat, don't you think so? Anyway, I really must be off so I can win the silver pieces! I'll be back, though, to see how the little one is doing! Buh-bai!" And with that Kirtau twists around and backtracks, trying to decide if she should take the red or the blue tunnels next.

*Claw cringes in pain as the cleric takes him into the temple.*

"I'm not meant to be a kender!" Claw exclaims and is annoyed by the abscent nod from the cleric. Obviously thinking it is just another "kender" making up a story.

"What kind of sick game show is this!" Claw yells to any gods who may be listening.

ooc; sorry! I was waiting to see if something was gonna happen while I had my back turned to an angry mother. I'll write this under the impression that I made it back to where the tunnel splits three-way.

ig; Kirtau looks at her options. She's already visited the one with the dragon in it, and though she'd dearly love to stay and talk, she felt that mother and son needed some quality time together. Now she just had to decide weather to go into the tunnel with red light, or the one with blue light. Hm . . .red and blue. Blue and red. Azure and Crimson. Or is it aqua and vermillion? So many names for just a few colors!!!! Kirtau considered the red tunnel (or crimson, or vermillion, or ox's blood, or rose, brick red, dark red . . .) because it looked dangerous. Red was always a symbol of danger, caution, stop, turn back, do not enter, etc. But she's always loved the color blue (or azure, or aqua, or turqois, or sapphire, ocean blue, dark blue, royal blue). She finally ventures down the red tunnel becuase she felt that the best word for red (Ox's blood) was far more interesting than the best word for blue (sapphire).

As Kirtau enters the chamber of red,the mystic light fades and turns to regular torchlight.
By this light,many wonders are seen.A chest filled with gems.A sword with a green aura.A figirune of a large dragon.A fork.A giant squirrel in a cage.In front of all these is a sign."Stay with your nature" is all it says.

Kirtau becomes more and more excited as her eyes pass over each item, until she reaches the caged Squirrle at which her brow furrows sadly and runs up to it, disregarding the sign and all the other luxuries. "Hey, little guy! Are you all right? What moron would cage up such an innocent creature?" She immediatly knelt by the cage and opened it up.

Joe_Ghostbuster
10/12/2000 6:57 AM

The squirrel chitters to himself."They cought me!But this one freed me!Now i shall kill them all!"

Kirtau giggled. The squirrle was so cute! "How do you plan to go about world domination?" She asked. She wondered what the world would be like if it were run by squirrles . . . They'd probably be friends with the kender (she just coulnd't imagine it any other way) and would keep the humans as pets in cages. Elves would be their servants, dwarves their handymen, and ogres and trolls and orcs their entertainment. She imagined herself sitting at a long table next to her friend (who, in her vision, wore a very small but becoming crown fashioned like a golden acorn) who was thumping his minature wine goblet on the table demanding the jester to be brought out. An ogre would enter, dressed in a motley red and yellow costume, and would start telling jokes. Kirtau laughed aloud as she imagined wine coming out of the squirrle's nose as he laughed at the ogre.

While Kirtau is thinking all these amusing thoughts,the squirel is using the fork he had taken,which is actually The Fork of Doom,to blow up every non-squirel in his cave kingdoms.
Unfortuanetly,Kirtua is one of those.
OOC:Sorry,Tolk,Why couldn't you go after the fork?Its kender nature to follow the utinsels.*sigh*This seems like a game where no-one wins.Unless Hood will do a turnabout.
