I love how all of them but the tiger are looking all fierce and majestic and implacable, and the tiger is all “SNOW! Guys, it’s snowing! I love snow!”

You have decided the best way to prove your value is to return with something of great value to the settlement, won not through might but through skill. Those who can move unnoticed, or evade the dangers that lurk in The Hunger are highly valued by the people of Koronheim and among the Stalkers. The Hunger is dangerous though, and many who seek its treasures die in the attempt. But you have come prepared!
You are carrying a white cloak - to aid in stealth tasks. This was a gift from your mother.
You are carrying a pair of fine leather gloves - to keep your hands dextrous and warm. This was a gift from your father.
There are many treasures out in the Hunger, each of which tell of a different skill. What will you prove?
Some try to recover equipment lost by Stalkers, hoping to earn their respect and join their ranks not as a soldier, but as a scout or ranger.
Some seek the treasures of the past, looking for remains of Those Who Came Before. The lessons of the past are valuable, and treasure hunters who can navigate the Hunger and find them are valued even higher.
Some try and steal form the Hunger itself! Stealing eggs or pups from the beasts of the Hunger show a mastery of stealth, as well as providing powerful beasts to the citizens of Koronheim. Beastmasters are rare though, as few younglings can survive the beasts’ lairs.
And those brave few seek out items of power - legendary items spoken of in hushed tones. There are said to be lost temples to elder things out on the edge of the Clearrock Span, nestled in the Cracked Tower. It is said only one youngling ever returned with a treasure from the Cracked Tower, and that the experience left them touched by strange powers. But it’s just an urban legend, isn’t it?
Seven hours of light remain.
What do you seek to prove, adventurer?

how is this me?
i promise you thats the face you were making when you reblogged this. thats how. look, youre making it right now.
Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom, there lived a beautiful princess and her two happy parents- the king and queen. One day however, the king was returning from battle in a neighboring kingdom when he was attacked by a demon, who ate his men and spared the king’s life on the condition that he would give up his daughter to the demon in marriage. The frightened king agreed, but when he returned home, he immediately began to close the walls to his kingdom. None were allowed in or out, for fear that the demon might come for his only daughter.
The queen tried to comfort her husband, but paranoia had possessed him. When the good queen was caught trying to escape the kingdom with the princess, a kingdom now in the grips of famines and shortages without trade to neighboring kingdoms, the king had them both locked away in a tall tower on the far edge of the kingdom, in the old forest. Then he searched for a better solution.
Eventually, the king found a powerful dragon. He offered all the treasures if his vault if the dragon could protect his kingdom, and more importantly, his daughter. The dragon agreed. Once he gained access to the vault, the dragon cast a spell and turned the whole kingdom to stone.
"There!" Said the dragon. "Now no harm shall come to your kingdom. As for your daughter, she remains locked in the tower until a hero who is both cunning and brave can best it’s tricks and traps and save her. There she shall remain, ignorant to the passage of time, until a hero arrives. When the princess is we’d and the demon defeated, once more will the kingdom be alive." And then he turned the king into stone as well, and covered him in crowns and rings and fine sills, for he was the crown jewel of the dragon’s new horde.
And so the princess continued to live in the tower, ignorant to the passage of time, awaiting her hero.
That’s what the books say, at least. But it wasn’t so. At first she was though. But she was a clever princess, and knew something was amiss. For one thing, her mother was a statue. Also, every morning the tower was reset back to where it was the morning previous. Kitchen stocked, books reshelved, and her in her bed even if she fell asleep in the library. She began to notice seasons didn’t change as they should. Her hair stopped growing, as did her nails. She counted the mornings after some time and in over six hundred days she never aged. Not physically, at least. But she learned.
Every book. She read every single one. She learned about potions, and math, and swordplay, and farming, and nobility.
You lay in the dark for a while and focus in on the camp.
It looks like there are two large tents - likely mobile barracks. As you watch, you see there are three men coming in and out of the hole carrying buckets, picks, and shovels. You are unsure if more are down there, but they seem to excavating a large amount of rock and sand at the foot of the mountain. A guard watches them.
One of the large tents has a guard outside of it as well. A few people sit around the fire, talking. In the back of the camp is a smaller tent, really more of a table with a tarp cover, where two figures talk. Could one of them be that man you seek?
The second large tent is unguarded.
Looking around the perimeter, you see two guards pace back and forth around the perimeter, crossing occasionally. It would be an easy pattern to infiltrate, but the bonfire illuminates the whole camp once you get in.
You estimate there must be twenty or so people down there - eleven that you can visually confirm, but judging by the size of the tents and the search party sent after you, there must be thirty total personnel - 9 out searching (3 already dead, though) and 21 or so here in the camp still digging.
You still sit several hundred feet above, hidden on the mountain with Buford and a lever-action rifle. With the ammunition you have on you, you can likely kill about half the camp - provided none of your shots miss. Any more and you’ll have to get in close with an axe or sword. You could also continue your climb, or take this intel and try the front door.
