Character Quest #1
I attempted to take part in Hayden Aube's Character Quest last year but struggled to keep up with the daily uploads. When I saw he was starting another quest that was done weekly I simply couldn't wait to get started!
Part 1: Ozmo the Merchant
The tavern was full of questionable characters. It always was. But Old Man Nutters said there was no better place to start a life of adventuring. Why, look! Someone is approaching already. It’s the head of the merchant guild, Ozmo!
Part 2: Spike
You hardly consider watching Ozmo’s pet, Spike, an adventure. Where’s the excitement in refilling giant bowls of food and shoveling mountains of poop? You remind yourself of the gold Ozmo promised and drag out the chain-link leash for Spike’s afternoon walk.
Part 3: Imp
Spike is restless on your walk. All of a sudden, he roars and dashes into the woods! You drop his chain before he can drag you away and as you try to give chase, you stumble and fall to your knees. When you look up, a cackling imp blocks your path.
Part 4: Old Man Nutters
One flash of your dagger and the imp flees. Not so tough now! You turn to see where Spike ran to but breathe a sigh of relief as you see a grinning Old Man Nutters, leash in hand, standing before the woods. You only hope he doesn’t want a share of the gold!
I tried to keep the colour palette coherent throughout this mini series which I believe I achieved, however, towards the end of the month I'd definitely got become bored with the dullish tones. Each character came with its own challenges but overall I'm reasonably please with this series of designs and am looking forward to continuing the Character Quest!
