Kaine Posted November 10, 2014 Report Share Posted November 10, 2014 Hey everybody, After finishing up my first challenge, I've decided to move into the Adventurers Guild as I continue to level up my life. I had a lot of fun with the first challenge, but realised there were certain things that I need to improve, or should change up, in order to best progress towards my goals. At the moment, I have an uncanny knack for procrastinating on workouts, so I am going to push myself to do a little something at least every day, and actively explore other types of exercise. My efforts at dieting were not so awesome, so I plan to address that again this go round. Another thing I plan to do is get out and sign up for a gym... which is particularly tricky for two reasons: (1) I paid a year-long membership to a gym a few years back and walked in the door twice, once to sign up, and once a year later, to cancel... so my track record is catastrophic (2) I still don't really speak French that well, despite living here for like 6 months (I work in English)... so I have to swing the contract signing/gym activities in 'Franglais' as well. Without further ado... here goes the fun little narrative and the quests: Mission: After dragging himself across the dirty floor he found a wall about 3 meters from the desk. Using the wall as support, he was able to get himself onto his knees. He slowly felt his way along the wall until he came across the source of the trickling sound... it's a small rivulet of water. He bends over and takes a few slurps from the puddle where the water is collecting at the base of the wall. The water is filthy, but its better than nothing, and it helps with the parched throat. He will need something better than this, and soon. He struggles to get to his feet with the help of the wall and flex muscles that feel like they've atrophied for years... ...and there's still that grinding sound in the distance...
