Job Title: Size Matters
Player Requirements: 20 Posts of 200 words or more. Maximum 3 mages.
Job Requirements: Defeat at least 5 enemies and defeat the magpie to get the ring.
Job Location: Clover Town
Job Description: Mrs. Cartigan, a retired bromance has lost her wedding ring in her garden and needs help finding it. Her garden is incredibly lush, and as such, searching from above will be neigh impossible. Because of this, Mrs. Cartigan will shrink you down to search for her ring. Beware, for as your size scales down, so does your power. Small creatures like rodents and insects are now very real threats. Characters are shrunken down to 2 centimeters in size.
Note: Due to the fact the mages are shrunk down for this job it is impossible for it to be invaded.
Ant: A single and out looking for food for its colony. Not too threatening, but can still have a nasty bite. Takes 1-2 C rank hits to kill. Bites do C-rank damage.
Cricket: Crickets are large and can pack a powerful bite, but are not very predatory. Defeating them just means proving you are too much trouble to eat. Takes 1-2 C rank hits to scare off. Bites do C-rank damage
Harvestman: Although their bite is less damaging than that of a cricket, the harvestman's long legs make it difficult to fight against. While they look like spiders, they aren't actually, and lack venom. Harvestmen take 3 C-rank hits to their body to kill, or the removal of all legs. Legs come off after taking 1 D rank hit and are much easier to hit than the body. Its relatively small jaws only do D-ranked damage.
Beetle: A predatory beetle with a sturdy exoskeleton and strong mandibles. Its bite deals C-ranked damage and it can take 4 C-ranked hits.
Wasp: A predatory wasp with strong jaws and a stinger. Wasps are sturdy, hard to hit, and deadly. They can sting multiple times and will likely employ hit-and-run tactics. Their wings are the weakest point, and hitting them can force the wasp to land. Bite deals C-ranked damage and can pick up opponents to shake them for additional D-ranked damage. Sting deals D-ranked damage on hit and B-ranked damage over 3 posts. Wasps take 5 C-ranked hits to kill. 1 D ranked hit to the wings from fire, electricity, or water magic or 1 C ranked hit of anything else will force it to land.
Jumping Spider: Nimble and venomous, jumping spiders tend to ambush their prey. It is very likely that these deadly predators will take those seeking the ring by surprise. Their powerful bite deals C-ranked damage when it hits and B-ranked damage over 3 posts. Their incredible speed will make them hard for even the fastest of mages to hit, and their sturdy exoskeleton can withstand up to 5 C-ranked hits.
Magpie: A magpie swoops overhead and lands nearby with none other than Mrs. Cartigan's wedding ring in its beak! It won't give up its new prize easily though, the magpie. With you at such a small size, this bird is a fearsome enemy. It can attack with its beak or lash out with its talons to deal B rank damage and flap its wings to knock enemies near it back, kicking up dirt and dust in the process. The magpie will take 15 C-ranked hits before it is defeated and flies away. The magpie will appear after 15 posts.
Reward: 10000 jewels and 12 homemade cookies (cookies do nothing, but are delicious).
Magna as usual was preparing food. Or more to say he was experimenting with a recipe. He was in his room, which was basically a large kitchen area with an adjoining small bedroom and an adjoining pantry. The kitchen wasn't exactly an ordinary kitchen as it didn't just have things like an oven, sink and chopping board. No, it had quite a lot of various tools. A clay oven was quite a predominant one as was the anti-griddle. It was a kitchen of a chef's dreams. What was particularly impressive was that most of the counters and tools could be slid away to the sides and even into hidden compartments built into the walls.
However, today was not a day where he would be using much of his fancy equipment and he'd slid away most of them. All he had was a counter top, an oven and a few other useful tools that he would need for his experimentations. What was he cooking exactly? Well, that was quite simple. He was trying to prepare a new version of a red velvet cake. A rather special red velvet cake in fact. The red velvet cake was a symbol of the team he was apart of Kvasir. It had been this cake that had brought them together. So he wanted to make a special one to symbolise their friendship and their ties to the guild. A black velvet rose cake to be precise.
Coming up with something like that was going to be quite difficult particularly as black wasn't exactly an appealing colour. So he needed to enhance the scent and taste to such a level that the appearance didn't matter as much. Black was also very hard to produce as a colour so instead he was trying to go for a very dark red that could be mistaken for black. It was proving difficult though. He sighed as he put another batch to the side. It wasn't quite there yet. It couldn't compete with the red velvet cake that was bought from the tavern down stairs.
