Maybe it’s the first day nerves talking, but you suddenly feel compelled to scour every corner of the room for any trace of anything useful.
Look inside the Chest!– Budem
Your bedside chest is a sensible place to start. There are no arms to be found, but you do discover a slice of lemon cake, bestrewn with poppy seeds and a delicate lavender icing. It smells fresh. Who baked this? In any case, you carefully wrap the cake in a handkerchief and place it in a side pouch for safe keeping.
Look underneath the rug!– Rashan
You find 3 seeds under the rug. You add them to your wallet.
Grab a shield off the wall and pose heroically– Violet the Screeching Creature
You find a Thimble Guard heavy shield. You pose like the great hero Artura.
However, you decide not to take the shield with you. Sturdy as it is, a weighty shield does not suit the elegance of the Wood Mouse Fencing Style. Besides, this one is probably supposed to be ornamental.
Grab the 200gp stashed under the bed.– Flynn
All the best loot is stored under beds, or so you’ve heard from ne’er-do-wells. A quick search under your neighbours’ mattresses reveals no loot (although you leave the largest bed alone, because you are no fool). You search your own bed for good measure and find nothing, save for a crumpled piece of paper that a careless individual must have dropped.
Who wrote this? Their paw-writing is atrocious. And who is Lemon?
There is no clock in the barracks, but if the bustle of the gods on the floorboards above is anything to go by, then it must be almost 9 a.m.
You survey the state of the room.
What do you do?
Tidy up all the mess you made.
Think up witty responses just in case you are late to work and they give you crap about it.
Quickly clean up the mess
Frantically try to repair the damage to the carpet from sticking your blade in it.
Head to the main hall! You can clean up later ?
Quick! Throw the fallen shield in the chest, right the stool, and kick the corner of the rug back where it goes. You’ve got places to be as well!
You’re late! Quick, bite into the cake and start running to the main hall with it sticking halfway out of your mouth like a proper tardy protagonist!
You’re late as it is…..eat the cake for breakfast and spend a little time making sure the room is spotless before leaving.
Balance on the sword and do an acrobatic flying pirouette off the handle.
You try to open the door but find out someone closed it!
You try to open the door but find out someone locked it!
Clean up the mess you made and get to your shift.
Clean up and RUN.
Blame your roommate and SCURRY
Clean up (or at least cover up?) and get to the main hall!
Pluck the seeds off the cake and put them in your wallet.
Go back to bed
Wash up a bit so you don’t look sloppy
Tidy Up and Run to the hall
get to the main hall and clean up later – you’re already late!
