A is for ABSCOND!

If that doesn't work, C is for CONJURE!

Armaments? But where am I going to find those? The closest place would be back at the blacksmith's, and I'm not sure facing the guards is much better than facing a dragon.

Fabricati Wrote:A is for ABSCOND!

A is for Abscond!

...I don't actually know what that means. But I seem to be running away now!

Unfortunately, the dragon can fly faster than I can run. It's already catching up. I think I need another plan.

Fabricati Wrote:If that doesn't work, C is for CONJURE!

What? But that's sorcery! I could be tried as a heretic and burned at the stake!

RRRAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!

On the other hand, I suppose if I'm facing a fiery death anyhow, I may as well make the attempt. C is for Conjure!

POOF!

...That seems to have given me a bouquet of flowers. I'm not sure much help this will be.

MrGuy Wrote:Consider its Achilles Heel!

Achilles' Heel? I'm not sure I can reach the dragon's heel safely, and I'm not even sure that would be very useful...

It's drawing closer. I think I'll need a better plan than just running. I'm open to suggestions!

Failing that, Charge at it. Just do it.

Or maybe Beckon it for a Conversation? Maybe get something out of it that is not "Rargh"

Er. Are you serious?

You're serious.

Well, I suppose I'm doomed anyway, how much worse can this make it... C is for Charge!

THUD!

SWOOSH!

...ow. I seem to have tripped on a loose cobblestone. But it looks like the dragon flew right over me?

But now it's turning this way again, I think I may need to try something else.

Gnauga Wrote:Or maybe Beckon it for a Conversation? Maybe get something out of it that is not "Rargh"

I suppose that's worth a try. C is for Converse!

Excuse me! Oh great and mighty dragon, might I have a word with you?

"RRRAAAGGGHHH!!!!"

I don't think that worked.

"You amuse me, puny human."

...Or maybe it did. I don't particularly like the way he's smiling.

"What could you possibly have to say that would interest me?"

Er... Have you heard about the alphabet? A is for Abbott, B is for Battleaxe, C is for Criminal...

"And D is for Dragon. I have thousands of years of knowledge, your alphabet is but a small piece of trivia. Is that all you have to say?"

You have taught the children about the letter D!
4/26 letters taught!


Ah... Oh my. He doesn't seem pleased. Although I did learn a new letter! That was fortunate!

Perhaps I should try taking a different approach with this conversation.

MrGuy Wrote:Pray that dragon likes flowers, because C is for Courtesy!

Oh great and mighty dragon, I offer you this humble gift if you will spare my life!

"Flowers?"

Yes! Here, please take them!

"Ack! Don't hold those so close to my face! I have allergies!"

Oh. I'm terribly sorry...

"AH-CHOO! AH-CHOO!"

Ah... I don't think it's a good idea for me to stay here while he's sneezing flames.

"Urgh. Now I'll have to head home and get some rest until this clear up. AH-CHOO!"

Oh, that's a relief. He's flying away now. Although I do hope he doesn't burn down my hovel on his way out of town...

In any case, I've gained a new letter! Where should I look for the next one?

Hm, maybe a birdhouse? But no, there's only one of those and that's with the king. Drat.

Mayhaps a brook?

Before you do anything else, you should Dance to revel in your victory.

Dance? That sounds like it might be sacrilegious.

Then again, I suppose I'm already a heretic for the conjuring. D is for Dance!

Dadada dada da-dada!

Hmm? What was that odd music?

Well, never mind. I have a letter to look for. But where could it be?

AgentBlue Wrote:Maybe it's buried somewhere. Dig?

I suppose it could be buried, but there's an awful lot of ground to dig up. I need some sort of starting point.

Fabricati Wrote:Mayhaps a brook?

Well, I suppose I can try it. There's one just outside town. Just a moment...

*walk walk walk walk*

Ah, here we are! A brook! And now I'll start digging.

*dig dig dig dig*

Perhaps I should have brought a shovel.

"WHO IS THE FOOLISH MORTAL WHO DARES DISTURB ME?"

Who said that? It sounded like it came from the ground...

"I DID! I AM THE GROUND ITSELF! AND YOU SHALL PAY FOR INTERRUPTING MY SLUMBER!"

D is for Dispute!!

Oh my. I seem to have woken up an Earth Elemental. And it's rather unhappy.

How should I handle this?

Hey, it's an earth elemental. Surely it's never heard of the alphabet before. We can definitely Demonstrate our literary prowess to this own.

...I'm almost certain that's a terrible idea. I think I'd rather try something else.

Gnauga Wrote:Hey, it's an earth elemental. Surely it's never heard of the alphabet before. We can definitely Demonstrate our literary prowess to this own.

Ah! Perhaps it will be impressed with my newfound knowledge! D is for Demonstrate!

Excuse me, oh great Earth Elemental! I have important knowledge to impart!

"What could a puny mortal know that might be of interest to me? I am as old as the earth itself!"

Er... A is for Abbott, B is for Battleaxe, C is for Criminal, and D is for Dragon.

"Is that it?"

Well, I'm looking for the rest...

"Spare me your pathetic trivia, mortal. I have a smiting to administer."

SMACK!

Ow. That hurt. Quite a bit. Perhaps another approach is in order.

MrGuy Wrote:Clean it with the Brook!

Well, it is made of dirt... I suppose that's an option. C is for Clean!

I'll just rip a piece of my tunic off and dip it in the brook, and now I just need to sneak up on him... Luckily, he seems to be rather busy gloating about how much more powerful he is than me.

*wipe wipe*

"EEEEEEEEEE!! I'm losing my dirt! What are you doing?"

Wait... Wait, that sounds like... Yes, I think that could be a letter! E is for Elemental!

You have taught the children about the letter E!
5/26 letters taught!


"Get that horrible thing away from me, mortal!"

What? It's just a little water.

"I'm eroding! Do you have any idea how painful that is?"

Not really. Anyhow, you're filthy! You could do with a good polishing.

*wipe wipe*

"Arrgh! Stop! Stop! I will do you one favor if you leave me be and let me return to my slumber. And do not touch me with that horrid water again!"

Oh! This could be helpful in finding another letter!

What should I ask the elemental for? I'd better think carefully about this.

A nice, sharp Dagger might aid you in any further Encounters you have.

Hmm. Yes, there's a thought. Can you make me stronger? Or smarter?

"Do I look like a personal trainer? I can't simply magically enhance you, and I'm not about to spend ten years telling you to lift weights or teaching you to read before I go back to sleep. You'll most likely be dead of plague by then anyway."

Oh. Well, that didn't work out. Perhaps I should ask for something more tangible.

Woffles Wrote:>A dictionary!

Er... In that case, could you fetch me a dictionary?

"A what?

I'm actually not sure, either. I don't know where that idea came from! Just a moment, I'll think of something else... something that I actually recognize...

MrGuy Wrote:A nice, sharp Dagger might aid you in any further Encounters you have.

Ah! That's it! I'd like a dagger. Some sort of weapon, at the very least. The way this day has been going, I feel I may need it.

"So be it. Just one moment."

*CRASH! CRUNCH! CRASH*

...What is he doing with that stone over there?

"There you are, mortal. A dagger of pure stone. I've even put a minor enchantment on it so it carries the power of Earth within it. Now leave me be!"

*rumble*

Well, he's gone back to sleep, thankfully. And now I have a Dagger of Earth! This will surely help me in finding the rest of the alphabet!

Speaking of that, where should I look next?

Actually, you should probably go back to the Farm to do your standard chores. Can't neglect them just because you're teaching the alphabet.

Oh, right. I have to toil in the fields so I can afford the tithes! I can't forget that. Luckily, they're just downstream a bit.

"Pete! Where have you been, you should have been toiling an hour ago! We have turnips to plant, and we're behind schedule!"

I'm sorry, sir! I've been given a task by the King and I need to perform it to avoid punishment.

...you wouldn't happen to know anything about the alphabet, would you?

"The what? Oh, never mind, just get toiling!"

Yes, sir!

This could be a problem. If I spend the day toiling, I'll have barely any time to look for letters and I'll be thrown in the dungeon! But if I don't toil, I could lose my job and possibly be thrown in the dungeon anyway. Oh, whatever shall I do?

Hm. You're planting turnips? Don't those go in rows? Fields, perhaps? Or... Furrows?
