Hi everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend! Here is my LOM entry for this month, and I hope y'all like it.
*From Thorogrin's POV*
An overview of the vignette.
Greetings, fellow people of Mythron. How I got here, it's a long story (kindof). I got hit in the head as I was traveling and ended up here. I believe that my captors, the orcs, are henchmen of the man who dethroned me in my home country. Believe it or not, he probably wants me to come back for one reason or another (probably a sinister reason), so he send these idiots to fetch me.
This is what I saw when I woke up. A sight like this can give people nightmares for years on end I bet, but my knowledge of these creatures helped me to not puke in the orc's face, which I think was good for both of us.
Okay, I needed to find a way of getting down from this tree. Easier said than done though, because I am powerless without my sword.
I would like to say though, that this type is orc is rather stupid and easily manipulated, so I could have used this to my advantage. But, I had a better idea than just persuade them. I would persuade someone else to free me.
You see, I had spotted a big fish in a barrel behind me, and I could use it as leverage for...
The horrible, disgusting, wretched creature that was trying to catch a fish with his bare hands and having no luck, big surprise.
I managed to get it's attention by wiggling around a bit, unseen by the guards. I also managed to gesture to the fish behind me so the creature could find it.
The effect on the creature was suspected. It almost hugged me in the confusion, but I managed not to get fish scales all over my cape. I told the creature that it needed to distract the guards and let me free, but it didn't seem too keen on the idea. But, I managed to persuade it with promises of more food. (Hence, the persuasion in this challenge.)
This creature then proceeded to pick up a rock from the floor and move to the pond.
He then hid behind a bush close to the tree and threw the stone into the pond.
It made a decent splash.
I almost laughed at the orcs' stupidity when they went to look at the pond, but at least the creature had lived up to his bargain.
He proceeded to untie me by loosening the rope from a rock, which looked rather easy (orcs don't tie very good knots).
I fell unceremoniously off the tree but at least the orcs didn't hear it. I felt my powers return as I moved towards my sword.
The one orc must have seen or heard something, because he looked around to see me free once again, and proceeded to shout at the other orc. They both advanced towards me.
With my telekinesis spell, I tied the hapless orcs to the tree they had tied me to. I love irony sometimes!
I then proceeded to walk heroically from the scene. Little did I know that the wretched creature was still following me, and to this day he still pops up when I least need him or expect him. I believe it just wants the food I promised it, even though I've never even thought of giving food to it.
Thank you for viewing folks! BTW, who knows what minifig is standing in the background? One hint: It's an exclusive one!
