Quest Duration: 15m
1st & 2nd Option Alignment QuestShould you select the None option, the following Bonus Quest will activate:
#1 You and [Your Sworn Sword] help your friend bring down the deer. [Your Friend] proudly takes it back to [Your Friend's Keep]. "You are a good friend," [he/she] says.
#2 [Your Sworn Sword] drives the deer toward you and your friend. A pair of arrows drops it instantly. [Your Friend] compliments you on your trophy.
#1 You spend an hour riding down the deer. When it finally stops, [Your Friend] takes it with an arrow and thanks you for your generosity.
#2 You set [Your Sworn Sword] in pursuit of the deer, then catch up along with [Your Friend] when its energies are spent. A well-aimed shot finishes the creature.
#1 [Your Friend] follows the lead of [Your Sworn Sword], who in turn follows the deer's tracks. They catch it by surprise with a pair of arrows and take it down.
#2 You and [Your Friend] follow the lead of [Your Sworn Sword], who never loses track of the deer. You catch it eating new grass and take it with a hail of arrows.
#1 [Your Friend] says, "It seems like such a simple trick." [Your Sworn Sword] says, "And look- it's worked!" As the deer bends for the bait, your arrows strike
#2 [Your Sworn Sword] crumbles the acorns and places them on the game trail. Sure enough, the great deer comes sniffing, and you soon have a grand trophy.
#1 The deer blunders into the trap almost soon as [Your Sworn Sword] has finished setting it. Before it can shake free, [Your Friend] has [his/her] trophy.
#2 [Your Sworn Sword] sets the snare and, after a short wait, the deer is caught and swiftly dispatched. [Your Friend] says, "Nicely done, and well struck."
#1 You spend the afternoon with chatter and a little food. [Your Friend] suddenly grabs [his/her] bow, aims, and lets an arrow fly. The deer is [his/hers]!
#2 [Your Sworn Sword] finds an excellent spot with a good view of the water. When the deer comes you kill it with a single arrow. "Well done," says [Your Friend].
#1 [Your Sworn Sword] drives the deer toward you. Your first arrow misses and it escapes before you can loose another. [Your Friend] says, "Better luck next time." (+1 Wound)
[Your Sworn Sword] places the snare and the deer does come along the trail- but it steps just to the side. [Your Friend] draws [his/her] bow but it's too late. (+1 Wound)
3rd Option Alignment QuestShould you select the None option, the following Bonus Quest will activate:
You and [Your Sworn Sword] knows these woods better than [Your Friend], and it shows- [he/she] has lost the deer long before you take it for yourself.
[Your Sworn Sword] leads you through the densest thickets. Just as you suspect the trail is lost, you reach a clearing and spot the deer! Your arrow strikes home.
"Blast you," shouts [Your Friend], but [he/she] is laughing as [he/she] says it. You salute your friend with a knife already bloody from skinning the deer.
[Your Friend] is still stalking the woods hours after you've finished gutting and skinning the deer. "Try a trap next time," you tell [him/her].
Your patience pays off, but it's a near thing- [Your Friend] was hiding on the other side of the water. Your arrow strikes home first, but barely.
[Your Sworn Sword] alerts you when [Your Friend] is on the verge of catching the deer. You ride fast and make sure your arrow gets there first.
