If you haven't yet, check out Part 1 of Trove's worst adventurer. Today I continue the harrowing journey.
Thwarted again. It turns out to just be a natural volcanic formation and an inert volcano. There’s nothing but hundreds of caves and caverns and I don’t remember my way out. I’ll need to keep looking around. Perhaps I’ll get lucky, maybe a stalagmite will fall and crush me and end my terrible life choices. Or was that stalactite?
Ah! Fresh air! I knew I could do it, just keep positive and eventually life throws your a cookie. This one is the size of the moon and an exit from this terrible cave. I can finally breathe easier knowing that all the hardships are finally behind me.
Freak, it's cold. I can’t feel my toes and my raptor mount is going about a mile an hour. Should have kept the horse. Stupid reptilian cold blood. Should have paid attention to my biology teacher on thermoregulation. Didn’t sound important at the time, and who uses that knowledge on a daily bases?
There’s a building up ahead and I hear some faint chanting. The place looks pretty inviting and my stomach needs some food. Hopefully they’re friendly.
I think I just joined a cult. They call themselves the left hand of the los locos. They cook one heck of a chicken feast though and I learned their chant. Los locos kick your butt, los locos kick your face, los locos kick your blocks into out-er-space! A bit catchy, but I had to PG it if I ever wanted to tell my mom.
These cultist are very friendly though, and they’re upgrading my armor. I’ve asked them if there are any dungeons nearby for me to delve into but all I get out of them are strange cryptic messages of a holy place where people go mad trying to solve its puzzle. I figure this is just some mystic voodoo to ward off brave adventurers, such as myself, so I decided to head out there right away.
I may have figured out that cryptic message.
Oooh boy, I may have bitten off more than I could chew. My next loan payment will be coming due next month so I can’t leave this place empty handed. Maybe this villain stashed something valuable near the entrance. If I get out of this place in one piece, I think it may be time to call my sister for job openings…
