Magic Elevator Quest by ArtisanBubblegum
974951.png

A Text Quest about delving into a Magical Ruin.

Loosely based on the Pathfinder 1e, Adventure Module, "The Emerald Spire"

As the Adventure continues, names, creatures, events, and even entire floors may be edited or completely replaced. I'm using the Module as a Jumping off point, and a VERY LOOSE guideline. If you're already familiar with the Emerald Spire, that's fine. If not, I recommend NOT reading it, as it will only serve to spoil some of the early chapters, and will be Very Far off base for the later chapters.

The Thing:

A Small Humanoid that coral discovered dragging a drunk into the Sewers.

Trivia

  • Wizarding Colleges
Originally, these institutions only trained Wizards, and on Rare Occasions gave guidance to Particular Sorcerers. But as more Magically inclined Adventurers started to manifest, so too did the difficulty of getting Hired for a Quest. The Organizations and Individuals behind the Higher Paying Quest began asking for official credentials, thus the Wizarding Colleges seized this new demand by offering courses for many more types of Magically inclined Adventurers.
  • Barbarian/Warriors/etc Colleges?
These types of Hero's Typically Associate with the Magically Inclined, are Part of Guilds, or are wrapped up into Quests against their intentions. As such, there is no real demand for these kinds of Institutes.
  • Why are all the Guards Orcs?
Orcs are Strong, Intimidating, and often work for cheap. They make perfect Low Level Guards, which is all Coral has interacted with so far. That said, the more ambitious Orcs find it easy to climb the ranks withing Fort ThisPlaceIsNice.
