Sometimes, when times are rough, a man just needs his goddam burger.
But sometimes, that same goddam burger is unable to be reached through conventional means.

Meet Carlos.
He's in jail for horrible crimes against humanity.
He's also been in here about two centuries now, due to being an ageless vestige of pure magical expertise.
However, without the magical greasewad that is the Burg, Carlos can't do much more than create some sparks with a snap.

Peering out through the rusty ill-maintained (yet still surprisingly solid) bars of his cage, Carlos can peer out at the sight that has taunted him for most of his existence since the last guard died several years ago.
He can almost taste it from here, the delicious scent of the magically-infused meat-patty wafts through the bars.
And yet, for the past hundred and fifty years, he has been unable to find a way to get to it.
So many years spent in this cage, the object that would enable his freedom being dangled a mere yard away from him like this, has led him to become somewhat mad, in both senses of the word.
Today marks the first day he'd start hearing the voices, which would likely become both a boon and a horrible malady for the aging magician.
So it came to pass that the long journey to snatch that burg off the goddam table would begin.

Rattle the bars. Maybe after all these years they're loose.
No. 568263 ID: a787ef

You sure the burg is still good after all these years?

Well any way perhaps you should have practiced using ambient burg energy. I mean only casting with burg in the hand is a weakness.

So yeah it appears the only thing you could do is try breaking the bars

You're wearing a robe, and you can set it on fire with sparks right? Surely there's is something useful we can do with that.

Your withered arms, sapped of their one-rippling musculature by aeons of immobility, are barely even able to raise above your head, let alone break the magick-infused bars of your cage.
Burgs are unnaffected by the passage of time due to their high magicka content.
It's cold and you are highly recalcitrant to do something to make your living arrangements any more uncomfortable. Plus, no plans immediately spring to mind.

No. 568383 ID: e31ca1

what, you haven't been working out and practicing magic in that cage all this time? what the hell have you been doing, just sitting there? damn guy it's like you don't even really *want* that burger

It's been several hundred years, and there's not much you can do of either without the right fuel.
Meat products (burgs in particular) are well-known for their magickal properties, while fruits and veggies help with keeping muscles going.
As you can imagine, spending that long in exile someone eventually forgot to feed the ageless resource hog somewhere fifty years in and nobody's been in since.
At this point trying to exercise would just bring you pointless pain.
No. 568385 ID: a0267c

Ok it's time to set your life straight it's time for some calisthenics! Start doing bodyweight exercises to get ripped.
You have been waiting for 150 years so 6 months will probably go by in a blink and then you will be strong enough to bend those bars.

Become the muscle wizard!
No. 568387 ID: a0267c

True you need to eat big to get big.

Start rattling your chains and moaning to see if anyone hears it.

You feebly bat at the shackles.
You hear something move in the next room, but figure its probably just the rats again.

It might be a person, start creating sparks by snapping to a beat. And start whistling or humming if you can't whistle.
No. 568393 ID: e31ca1

start a percussive band with snapping sparks and rattling chains and harmonic moaning!

You start snapping/whistling out a beat.
It's terrible and you have no sense of rhythm.
It works though, and the noises start nearing the door to the cell room.

A very stout-looking man of very diminutive height bursts into the room, startling you. There's no doubt if there'd been a door he'd have kicked it in for an initiative bonus or some stupidity like that.
Regardless, judging by that stonking huge sword, this is an ADVENTURER.
Perfect, just what an evil wizard on his immortal deathbed needed, someone to reap the exp for murdering him.
No. 568423 ID: ffa549

Don't be an immortal wizard to murder for xp.

Be a quest giver. (Can you use your sparks to make an exclamation point?). Oh brave warrior, I've been trapped here so long. Will you listen to a starving old man's request?

Then give him the fetch quest for the burger.
No. 568431 ID: a0267c

You could also be a possible party member, a powerful wizard forever indebted to the brave hero who rescued you from your wrongful imprisonment.
No. 568480 ID: 113912

Forever? It's just a burg. That's like, a downpayment or an advance on our first payday in a collaborative enterprise. Once we've eaten a burg today we will still need side dishes, beverages and more food tomorrow so I can't support your view of a burg as worthy of a life-debt in itself.
No. 569818 ID: e1609c

Carlos forms a rough fascimile of an exclamation mark from his sparks. It's incredibly shitty.

Here, I'll roll TWO dice for intelligence checks. First one's for you, second one's for him.

Oh, nice, looks like my check says you're way smarter than him.
No. 569928 ID: e1609c

whoops. for future reference, i mean 1D20 when I ask for rolls.
Also, while this roll CAN be failed, its not easy to do so. Roll again, please.
