<html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/letter.png" width="500"> </html> Greetings Adventurers! I won’t waste your time, as we don’t have time to waste. Perhaps you’ve heard of the growing evil at the edge of Our Town? You’ve noticed the blight that has crept through the forest, no? I was surprised when a swamp appeared at the edge of Old Man Foster’s field overnight, but no one else seemed to think it’s odd. It wasn’t till some of the rich folk started turning to skeletons this issue caught the attention of my office. It was then when I first heard the name [[Dred Phelps|1]]. <html> <h1>SUDDENLY</h1> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel.png" width="300" /> <h2>A SKEELETON APPEARS</h2> </html> It stumbles towards the four adventurers, an evil gleam in its eye socket.

The house reeks of evil. It smells like cookies. What is it made of? There are a few feet of water immediately outside of the house. It looks like it's deepest underneath the house. Choose one: [[Cyril scouts around the back of the house.|frog]] [[Nemia concentrates to detect nearby magic.|detect magic]] [[Pops notices that Ofinia's sword is special.|white noise blade]] You sense a crocodile in the water!

You will find three others there, they have been hired to assist you with this mission. Should you all be successful at finding and removing the source of this new evil near Our Town we will pay you with riches beyond your wildest dreams." <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/ashy-stump.png" width="300"> </html><html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/pops.png" width="300" /></html> A carriage pulls up at the edge of the clearing and an old man steps out, his umbrella, swaying in the wind. "My name is Pops O'Hanlon and I am at your service. "It is a pleasure to meet you, dragon-woman. I've never met one in the flesh, though I read many of your books in my [[wizarding|nemia intro]] classes. You don't have wings or a tail, do you?" "No, those are different dragons. I come from the dragonfolk tribes beyond the sea." <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/nemia.png" width="300" /> A bright flash of light blinds the two as a woman with horns steps forward, the air smells of brimstone. <font color="red">The ashy stump bursts into flames</font>. </html> "I am Nemia of the last of the Devilkind. I mean you no harm. I was sent her with the same task. But none of us know who we are working for or why we should [[trust|skeleton appear]] them?" <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/ofinia.png" width="300" /></html> "I am Ofinia Zamses, sworn defender of the land, protector of the weak, and proof that Dragons can do good! I am an Ice Dragon!

Out of the shadows a figure puts his swords away. <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/cyril-bloody.png" width="300"/></html> "I am Cyril Thane. Hunter of the wilds. Breaker of hordes. Slayer of multitudes of evil creatures. I usually work alone, but it seems we're all on the same mission. There's a steady stream of skeeletons coming from inside the what were the woods. I can track them. Because that's what I'm good at. I can take you to where they are coming from." [[Follow me|the edge of the woods]]" <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/ofinia-frost.png" width="300" /><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel-freeze.png" width="300" /> Ofinia rears back her head, opens her mouth and releases a blast of <font color="blue">cold</font> from her toothy jaw. Freezes solid! Everyone is very impressed, but just as they collect themselves and begin to talk <h1>ANOTHER SKELETON APPEARS.</h1> <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel.png" width="300" /></html> </html> This time Nemia's eyes are glowing [[gold]] in the night. Pops is still ready to sneeze <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel-burn.png" width="300"/></html> Nemia reaches out her hand and a blast of fire erupts from her fingertips. Her horns are silhouetted against the bright light from the white hot flames. Where once stood a skeleton there is now only a pile of ash. It smells burnt, but not unpleasant. "That was remarkable!," remarks Ofinia- but before she has a moment to continue ANOTHER SKEELETON APPEARS <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel.png" width="300" /></html> Pops finally lets loose his [[sneeze|nose]] <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel-acid.png" /></html> Pops lets out a massive sneeze. "AAAAACHOOOOOO!!" It booms in the distance, echoing off the trees at the edge of the clearing as a glowing green ball of snot shoots towards the skeleton, striking the knees and dissolving it into a puddle of green slime. The stench of the acidic mucus hits the party's nostrils. "Gross" says Nemia. But before anyone has a chance to say anything more, <html><h1>SUDDENLY ANOTHER SKEELETON APPEARS</h1><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/skel-shrink.png" width="300" /></html> [[Where are there so many skeeletons! Where are they coming from!!.|cyril appear]]We need adventurers who think they have what it takes to seek out the root of evil in our land and put an end to it. I cannot tell you any more at this time except that the odds are not in our favor. The enemies are many and they are strong, so we only employ the most incredible heroes. I cannot guarantee that everyone will return in one piece, though you will be compensated greatly if you do. If this kind of secret, bloody mercenary work appeals to you there is much work to be done. <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/letter.png" width="300" /> </html> [[continue reading|the letter]]You've reached the end of this demo. More coming soon. Thanks for playing! <html> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/toad-cyril.png" width="300" /> <img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/toad.png" width="600" /> </html> A toad swallows cyril whole. [[Pops draws his wand and readys a spell.|spell fizzle]] [[Nemia looks around.|toad croc]] Ofinia [[draws her sword|toad cut]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/nemia.png" width="300" /></html> Nemia's eyes glow gold. I feel a great source of magical energy in the back of the house. It is large and rectangular. It bubbles with illusionary and transformative magiks. Cyril:[["Let me scout around the back"|frog]] Pops:[["What an interesting sword you have, Ofinia"|white noise blade]]Pops: " I couldn't help but notice that your blade looks special" Ofinia: "It's name is the white noise blade. Watch this" <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/ofinia-white-noise.png" width="300" /></html> The blade emits a loud, piercing static sound. Everyone grabs their ears. Meanwhile... Ofinia concentrates to [[detect magic]] Cyril [[scouts ahead|frog]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/toad-cyril-freed.png" /></html> With a dancer's grace Ofinia carves the shape of a human out of the toad, revealing Cyril. Everyone is really impressed with Ofinia's swordsmanship. What a relief! That was easy. [[Everyone takes a breath|croc]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/croc.png" /></html> There's a crocodile in the water. It was hiding in the deep water closer to the house. There's no way to get to the house without getting past it. It can see you but doesn't look like it's developed an opinion about you. Nemia and Pops: Let's [[talk to the croc|croc mad]] Ofinia: Let's [[move around it.|front door]] Cyril: Let's [[attack it.|croc blood]] Whoops! Pops drops his wand in the water. He can't do anything until he picks it up. Nemia [[looks around|toad croc]] Cyril is still trapped inside a frog Ofinia's [[sword|toad cut]] is drawn<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/croc.png" /></html> There's a crocodile in the water. It was hiding in the deep water closer to the house. There's no way to get to the house without getting past it. It can see you but doesn't look like it's developed an opinion about you. Nemia and Pops: Let's [[talk to the croc|croc mad cyril-in-toad]] Cyril is still stuck inside a toad. Nemia wants to [[go back for him|toad cut]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/croc-mad.png" /></html> The croc looks at you weird. It doesn't really care about what's going on. It's just a crocodile, and it's pretty full after eating those farmers earlier. Ofinia: Let's [[move around it.|front door]] Cyril: Let's [[attack it.|croc blood]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/rat.png" /></html> All four heroes wade in the water past the croc and arrive at the front door. Pops takes the handle and opens it. The floor is swarming with rats. Pops wants to [[enter the house|inside house]] Attack the rats! Choose a hero: [[Cyril|rat sword]] [[Nemia|rat fire]] [[Ofinia|rat sword]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/croc-blood.png" /></html> Cyril swings at the crocodile but the beast ducks back under the water, bites off his leg and swims away. The air around Ofinia grows colder. Ofinia looks to the sky, "I sword an oath to protect those who would fight by my side. By the power of the glacier, may the frost bring him strength" Cyril's leg grows back. It is cold to the touch. Nemia turns to Pops. "The crocodile wasn't even hostile. What's all this aggression about?" Now there's nothing between you and [[the creepy house|front door croc dead]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/croc-mad.png" /></html> The croc looks at you weird. It doesn't really care about what's going on. It's just a crocodile, and it's pretty full after eating those farmers earlier. Cyril is still trapped inside a toad. Ofinia can [[keep going forward.|move forward]] or go [[save Cyril|toad cut]] Would you really someone behind like that? What if you got swallowed by a giant toad and no one came to save you? Shame on you! Go back there. [[Go back and save Cyril|toad cut]]Looks around inside the house. The rats are congregating in a [[corner to the south east]]. A large [[table]] fills the middle of the room. Look in the [[north west corner of the room]] A massive [[oven]] covers the back wall. <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/rat-sword.png" /></html> Swords can't seem to do anything against these rats, they just hide in the woodword and more keep coming. Nemia uses [[fire magic|rat fire]] Pops steps over them to [[enter the house|inside house]]All four heroes wade in the water and arrive at the front door. The water is full of crocodile blood. You don't really think you should have killed the crocodile. Everyone's kind of bummed out. Usually you only kill people who are attacking you, and that croc was just hanging out. [[Pops can use his magic to go back in time|croc]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/rat%20fire.png" /></html> Nemia shoots a blast of fire into the doorway, but stops suddenly when she smells burning. Though the house smells and looks like its made of candy, it actually is made of wood. Nemia has to be very careful using fire here, she could burn the whole place down! The rats scatter into the floor boards. Ofinia and Cyril try to [[use their swords|rat sword]] Pops [[steps into the house|inside house]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/rat-corner.png" /></html> This is where the rats went to go hang out. They don't really look angry. Look in the [[north west corner of the room]] A massive [[oven]] covers the back wall. Look in the [[north west corner of the room]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/table.png" /></html> A table full of crazy magic stuff. Beakers. Caldroms. Vials. Books. Pops recognizes this as the sort of equipment you would need to turn people into skeletons. That's definitely what this is. All this equipment smells oddly like chocolate chip. The rats are congregating in a [[corner to the south east]]. Look in the [[north west corner of the room]] A massive [[oven]] covers the back wall. <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/oven.png" /></html> You see an oven. It's big enough for a person to fit in and smells like macadamia nut. The rats are congregating in a [[corner to the south east]]. A large [[table]] fills the middle of the room. Look in the [[north west corner of the room]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/spider-webs.png" /></html> This corner is covered in spider webs. A muffled noise eminates from behind thick white wall of silk. Pops takes a step forward when Cyril puts a hand on his shoulder. "I've got a bad feeling about this Pops" [[Investigate the sounds in the spider web|hag in disguise]] Check out the rest of the house before proceeding. Look at [[the south east corner|corner to the south east]] [[the oven|oven]] [[the table in the center|table]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/spider-webs.png" /></html> "Help me!" You hear a voice inside what looks like spider web. "Help me!" Clear away the [[webbing]] [[Hesitate]] <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/girl-disappearing.png" /></html> The girl disappears. Lots of light shoots out. It is scary. Pops blacks out because a giant spider jumps on him and gets his venom deep into his system. Pops is definitely a goner <html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/pops-dies.png" /></html> [[Continue without Pops|end]]<html><img src="http://sodabags.com/games/dfor/spider-webs.png" /></html> Something is not right here.
