See You Next Fall
You're wandering down a mineshaft, minding your own business, when you trip over something. Ow!
After wallowing in your own shame for a moment, you pick yourself off of the dusty ground. You look up, and notice you are about three inches from a giant, unfinished elevator shaft. Man, that first step is a doozy. Looking down the shaft, you see a 7-Foot Dwarf clinging precariously to the edge. Or possibly the 'Bono,' as it's called in certain parts of the world. He sees you and yells for help. You begin to get nervous, and decide to beat feet, but the dwarf's wailing plays upon your heartstrings.
You notice a stick next to the shaft and grab it. If you reached down the shaft with the stick, the dwarf could grab hold and pull himself to safety.
|Give 'im the stick|
You shimmy to the edge of the elevator shaft and lower your stick. The dwarf grabs it, and pulls himself to safety.
"Thanks, man," the dwarf says. "I tripped over my helmet and fell in. Looks like you tripped over it too. Stupid helmet."
You look off the side, and sure enough, there's a dented helmet. You briefly consider kicking it down the shaft, but decide to just take it with you, instead.
|You acquire an item: miner's helmet|
|DOOOOON'T GIVE 'IM THE STICK!|
You reflect that these dwarves have yet to do you any favors, and you decide to take the stick and leave.
Upon closer inspection, you notice that there's a mattock head attached to it. Upon closer inspection of the mattock head, you notice that there's a stick attached to it. Upon closer inspection of the mattock head and the stick, you notice that you've got a snazzy new mattock!
|You acquire an item: 7-Foot Dwarven mattock|
|Negotiate for a reward|
"Weeeeeellll..." you say.
"Yeah, yeah," grumbles the dwarf. "You Adventurers never do anything out of the kindness of your hearts. I'll give you 100 Meat if you help me."
Sounds good to you!
|You gain 100 Meat.|
