Treebanned: Gremlin-Hunting!
« on: October 10, 2013, 07:16:31 pm »

In the flourish of Spring she's your delight
The woven tresses of the forest sprite
Caress her smoothly rounded bark
As you delight her in the dark.

Summer in her oaken bower
Flush of green and delicate flower
Time you spent and games you played
Relaxing together in the shade.

But Autumn turned her smile so bright
Now faint like waning candlelight
Your life she'll deign to upend
For on her kisses you depend

To live, to breathe, to satisfy
To quench your fire else burn and die!
Alas! To burn alone, and still
She casts you out in the Winter chill.

---

Your time with the Dryad is over. After she kicked you out of her tree you got one last look at her sad face framed with sticks and dry leaves. Then she closed the wooden door and there's not even a seam left to show where it was.

You're standing outside her great oak-tree naked. The sky is overcast and grey, a frigid wind blows over your rapidly cooling skin, and you feel the tiny pinpricks of a few faint snowflakes.

You're in a forest. The ground is hard and there's a lot of brush between trees so visibility is limited. You can't remember how you got here, or really anything from before you met the Dryad. You suspect you at least had underwear.

Oh right, you had a name. What was it again?

Elan Leitman, sounds nice enough in my head at least.
Edit: Edited to Unisex name, also changed surname, didn't feel right with new first name.

Well, we've gotta get this of the ground somehow. But I want to hold with the "need 2 actions and no deadlock", so if someone else could chime in with a vote for either name ... or pick a new one, whatever.

We should pick a nearby tree to climb to get a good sense of our surroundings.

Oh right. Jeffrey.

You scratch your head and ponder. Seems like you've been nude for about as long as you were with the Dryad. She took your clothes pretty much immediately.

With a creak the tree opens, high up, like a window. The Dryad begins throwing your stuff out. You can't catch it all - the rest is gonna hit the hard ground. The more you try to catch, the less likely you are to catch anything. Sailing out into the crisp air there is:

a Fur Cloak
a Satchel
a Bottle
a Floppy Boot
a Belt, with Dagger Sheath
a Dagger

Being banished stoked his growing ire,
Chafed and bruised abruptly by this f***ery.
Rubbing sticks, he set the tree afire,
Do you hear me, bitch? My name is Jeffery!

See me coming, better run for them hills.

Catch the bottle and the Satchel. Everything else should be able to survive a fall. The Satchel should be fine, but we don't know what is inside it.
