    Title: Inquisition's Trap


    Name of account: Maniafig

    Pre-battle flavour text:

    Your internship with the Inquisition's R&D department is almost at its end, you've spent months engineering a trap that's sure to make Yurik's head spin and all that stands between you and that cushy position as a Junior R&D is a simple test run of your trap.

    It took much convincing, but the Inquisition was willing to lend you an Afflicted Guard they subdued for questioning. As the Inquisitors push the hapless subject into the testing chamber, you put your ears on the door with glee for the sound of flapping wings followed by swinging blades and falling boulders.

    Post-battle flavour text:

    Now you're getting real antsy, it's already been a minute! Suddenly you hear the sound of a window shattering and an increasingly distant cackle. The Inquisitors push you aside as they barge into the room and you suddenly hear the sound of swinging blades and falling boulders followed by silence.

    You have a feeling you can wave that position goodbye. You quickly make away with your meager commission and start applying for another position at another employer.

    Note: No points are awarded for killing enemies.

    Scenario name: Silverwood Camp
    Pre-Battle flavor text: Having received armament from Svitlana, warden of the Silver Forest, your band of three sets out to scout the lands of Lord Makhail and report back. You make camp for your first night on the edge of the silver forest. It's no walled village, but surely the monsters would not dare enter the forest which is home to Svitlana and the origin of their bane, fey steel.
    Post-Battle flavor text: It seems the monsters are emboldened by their numbers and are even entering the Silver Forest itself. Is nothing safe from their blight? They must be taken out at their source, Castle Mitternacht. You gather what you can from their remains.

    Title: From Beyond the Grave

    Account: Vlamona

    Before text: You don’t remember why they killed you. You remember almost nothing from when you were alive. You do remember that you want revenge. It feels like your whole being is made from your desire for vengeance. You have twisted the minds of two vampires, made them loyal to you. They will help you get revenge.


    After text: Your revenge is complete. Your whole reason for existing is gone and you fade away.

    Title: Culinary Conclusion

    Pre-battle text: Home, sweet home! While you might have lost the finals, you're pretty convinced that a second place is almost as respectable, and your employer should be satisfied with your performance. As you ponder that, while occasionally paying some attention to that cauldron of boiling soup you're supposedly cooking and maybe even having a look at the oven, too, you hear a servant enter the kitchen with a message: Lord Cadford wants you to know that your reward is on the way. Content, you turn back to the cauldron. You don't know what you and your twin brother, the remaining Garcottos, will receive for your spectacular results, but you're sure it's going to rock!

    Post-battle text:
    You can't really wrap your head around what just happened. You try everything you can: putting the pieces into your award-winning soup, roasting them, frying them. But to no avail! The thing just refuses to taste any better, even after you try all combinations of seasonings known to you. This feels like pretty poor form from your employer, especially after all you've done to further his name and fame. You consider packing up and finding an employer who doesn't completely lack taste.

    Notes: Thanks to @Maniafig and @Wandere for their help with testing, design, and useful advice, and for Maniafig's permission to use one of his ealier submissions as backstory.
