Adventurer's Guild - Reception Desk
+ + +
Introduction

You've completed a quest already? So fast! Well, let's get started with the reception desk.​
First, I would like you to fill out a Quest Report. A quest report is a narrative about how you accomplished the objectives of your quest. You can write it in any format that you wish, but please try your best to write with neat handwriting!​
Once you've completed a Quest Report, you should post it in this thread and wait for someone to evaluate it. Unfortunately, the Guild is extremely understaffed and we don't employ many receptionists. We rely on peer review to evaluate quest reports. Anybody can evaluate a quest report, but you can't evaluate your own!​
The evaluator gets to decide how much of quest rewards are awarded.​

Quest Report Guidelines
  • Quote the quest that you picked so it is easy for the evaluator to reference it.
    • Note: Guild Quests in the table format will preserve their format if they are copy-pasted (Ctrl+c)
  • Tagging someone to evaluate your quest is recommended, but optional.
  • Please follow ScribbleHub content guidelines and forum rules:
    • Please use a spoiler and warn readers about sensitive content (e.g. gore / sexual content / strong language).
    • Pornographic stories — specifically porn without plot (PWP) — are prohibited per SH gudelines. If desired, please take it to PMs.
    • Age of consent is 18+ per SH gudelines.
    • Illegal sex acts — stories encouraging bestiality or necrophilia — are prohibited per SH guidelines.
    • Stories encouraging nonconsensual sexual content — are prohibited per SH guidelines.

Evaluation Guidelines
  1. Reread the quest description and objectives.
  2. Imagine yourself in the position of the "sponsor" who issued the quest.
  3. Consider if:
    • The objectives of the quest were performed satisfactorily.
    • The quest report is plausible (e.g. the character didn't "fake" or "lie" about something in their quest report).
    • There was any collateral damage.
    • The character demonstrated growth.
  4. Decide if:
    1. Full quest rewards were earned.
    2. Partial quest rewards were earned.
    3. The quest was failed and nothing was earned.
  5. Leave a comment!

Evaluator Salary
  • As a slight incentive to encourage people to evaluate reports, the Adventurer's Guild will pay a small sum for each post evaluated.
  • For each post evaluated, you can collect:
    • Money: 2.5 G / post
    • EXP: 10 EXP / post

A Note from Zoey. (Yes more than one person has the GM account)
If your quest report hasn't been Evaluated then just tell us in the OOC Room. It's just a lot easier for us that way.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Is there a special format I need to follow for quest reports?

No, you can write your quest report in any style or format. There is also no minimum or maximum word count.​
Writing with proper paragraphs, grammar, and clear sentences makes it much easier for the receptionist to read.​
Please remember to quote/copy the original quest and include a link to your character profile in your forum signature.​

Q: Where can I find the lore of this world?

The Library thread is the official worldbuilding thread, and the official reference is on WorldAnvil.​
Lore in this game is largely crowdsourced and majority rule. If many quest reports filed by different characters/players agree on something, then we assume that it is probably true.​
"Probably" is emphasized because there's a possibility that anything you find in the library could be wrong. We like to pretend that every quest report is filled with unverifiable information, and no single individual is able to determine the lore of the universe by themselves. Your character shouldn't blindly trust everything that they read. What if a different adventurer was just dreaming or eating hallucinogenic mushrooms when they filed the report?​
You won't know what's actually real until you go out there and see it yourself, right?​
Q: Can I make up something totally new and random?
Adventurer's Guild has an additive worldbuilding rule, which means it is almost always okay to add something the world as long as it doesn't attempt to restrict something else in the world.​
  • Good: My character walked through the forest and found an abandoned hut. Inside, was a nice goblin who asked if I was lost.
  • Bad: My character is an expert about this fantasy world. It is unequivocally true that all goblins are evil and there are no good goblins.
  • Okay: My character spoke to a villager, and the villager said that all goblins were bad, and people should kill all goblins.
As long as you write with additive worldbuilding practices, you can pretty much write anything!​
That said, you should probably avoid "breaking" the setting.​
It would be a good idea to check with others in the OOC Room before attempting something like:​
  • Discovering a giant horde of world-ending demons in the sewers of Scribel City (the beginner/tutorial region).
  • Discovering a motherload of adamantium and uranium right outside of the tutorial area.
  • Finding a fountain in Villager A's bathtub that magically makes you invincible overnight.
  • Creating an infinite-mana teleportation gate in Scribel City that magically lets you teleport to the final boss.

In other words, please apply the common sense rule. Read the quest board for the location carefully, and avoid doing things that obviously break common sense for the local area. Scribel City is a beginner area and a relatively small frontier city, so please keep it that way!​
That said, it's totally okay to have crazy plot developments — but make sure you have agreement with the community of players first.​
Q: Can I do multiple quests in one report? How about multiple quests in a day?

Please don’t combine multiple quests into a single report.​
For OOC reasons, we feel that it is unbalanced to gain double (or triple or quadruple) the exp for a similar amount of writing. Since this is a writing game, we encourage players to split each quest into its own report.​
Just separate each quest into its own post.​
You can take as many quests in a day as you have time for.​
Q: How do I do a party quest?

To do a party quest, get together with another player and plan how your characters will tackle the quest together. In the end, you will only submit one quest report for the entire party.​
There are multiple ways to do this. Any of these strategies are okay.​
  • Some players RP the entire quest in the Freestyle Room and then summarize it into a report.
  • Other players jointly write the quest report in Google Docs.
Depending on the quest details, the receptionist may choose to duplicate the award for each quest member or split it. It depends on the circumstances of each quest.​

@ohko I read your quest report, but how do I know that you didn't fall asleep on the job?

Next time, maybe you should bring something or someone that can prove that you were awake for your shift.

I'll let you off this one time, but I won't be this easy on you in the future! This time, I don't think you should get any EXP.

Bumping all quest reports to this thread!
Quest Report:
Character: TREE (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 0)
Quest: I'm hungry for some seafood!
Report
: went for a walk down by the sea found a few sticks, rocks, and some vines made small net trap spent a few hours tossing the need out to sea
sadly was only able to catch one solmon before my net broke return sad faced and wet with only one fish back to town
Quest Report:
Character: Ruk'muk (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 1)
Quest: I'm hungry for some seafood!

Ruk'muk stood by the edge of the ocean, his weight compacting the sand beneath his stony feet. Apparently, fish lived in the waves that stretched out to the horizon. Ruk'muk had never seen a fish before, but apparently humans ate them.

He stomped into the water, ignoring the powerful waves as they crashed against him. Eventually he made it up to a sandbar, where only his head peeked out of the water. He could feel things of all different kinds swimming around him, brushing by his body.

"Hmm... so this is fish!... But which one is Salmun?"

Realizing he didn't know what exact fish to find, he started grabbing things at random: eels, carp, tiny guppies, clumps of seaweed. He comes back to town with an armful of writhing sealife. Among them are two big Salmun.
I'm going to wait for @binarysoap to get back, because I'm not totally sure what he was thinking -- but I think I can evaluate at least one!

I hope this isn't too annoying >.<


Hi Tree!

U-Um... the truth is, I have no idea what a

is!

Is it a salmon? Is it even an ordinary fish? :blob_dizzy: :blob_dizzy: :blob_dizzy: I'm so lost!

However, I don't think a

is the same thing as a


So maybe double check what kind of fish next time! So in terms of reward, let's go with half exp? It's cool how you made a net!

Report: as i am about to leave the guild i see a notice on the board for going out of town to collect healing herbs. so i walk uo to the receptionist and ask what kind of herb that the would need
"certainly sir says as she looks at me you see will we need a lot of different type of healing herbs the one that is the most common is a small herbs that can be founds in Forrest to the north of town they look like a small flower with two white flower coming out of the tops. but make sure you only get the herbs with two flower if you get the ones that has 3 they are posionus. her is a bag for the herbs to go in.'
"thank you Mam i didn't event think i need something to put them in."
" that is ok sir now go and be safe and i hope to see you soon" she says as she wave goodbye.
i leave the guild and head toward the north gate out of town. so that i can go and collect the herbs for the guild. as i leave the town i see a lush landscape with a beautiful forest just slightly to the north east i start to walk that way.
as i enter the forest i see right away all the plants that are around me. thin i see a few of the twin flowers and tri-flower a little deeper into the forest. i spend the rest of the day staying i close as i can to the edge of the forest making sure that i dont get attack. As collect a few of the herbs to take back to town i get a round 20 of the twin headed flower and pick 10 or the tri-flower just to see if i can sell them back in town for some coins. as i was picking some of the tri-head flowers i put them in to my storage instead of the bag with the twin-flowers so that i dont contaminate the healing herbs after a few more hours i slowly make my way to to town a little tired and dirty
Good work! :blob_salute: I'm curious if you end up finding something interesting about the tri-flowers later!

Eustania looked huge pile of fresh seafood.

"Ooh, you brought back the salmun, along with a whole bunch of bonus goodies! Thank you so much! Although..." Eustania looked carefully at Ruk'muk. "Can you even eat stuff like this as a pile of rock? Oh well, not my problem. Even if you can't, you can always share my delicious food with others!"

Grabbing her large blue sword, she swiftly and expertly chopped up the salmuns and the other fish into manageble slices, and professionally separating the fish guts, bones, and the meat. After ten minutes, all that was left was a pile of various fish guts and some beautiful fillets of raw fish.

"I was worried that the fish here would have different anatomy, but it turns out it's all the same! Now to double check the taste!"

Eustania proceeded to slice a chunk of the salmun and began to eat it raw.

"Mmmm, so the legendary taste wasn't a lie! This is perfect!"

Eustania heads back and comes out with a huge iron pan and wood to make a campfire. She also shows up with a huge pot of freshly cooked rice. As she begins to add oil and various spices to the chunks of salmun, a delicious sweet and savory smell begins to waft through the air. Eventually, she hands over seven plates of rice with a large fillet of salmun on each of them.

"Here you go~! And since you were so nice to bring extra goodies, if you want, you can stick around for bonus food! Since you also brought globs of seaweed, let me make a few seafood riceballs for you to take home!"

After a show of culinary expertise, Eustania gives Ruk'muk 10 assorted seafood onigiris as a bonus, while stashing the leftover uncooked seafood into an icebox.

Character: Noel (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 20)
Quest: Cooking Rations
Report:
After being shown the way to the Guild by the kind guards and obtaining an official form of identification here, I needed to plan out what to do now. While on one hand, I could go straight to continuing my search for Her, on the other I could do quests and try to get accustomed to life as an adventurer first. After mulling over what to do for a while, I decided instead of just standing there doing nothing I should go look at what kind of requests there are first of all. If it's stuff like slaying demons and dragons then it'd probably be better for me to just leave this place.

Going up to the board that was bigger than I thought, I started to scan through all of the things posted there. My eyes instantly zoomed in on the request saying Cooking Rations. Not to brag or anything but cooking is one of the few things I'm proud of, due to the fact the She couldn't cook at all and it was up to me to either cook or starve back then, anyways after looking it over I thought it was easy enough and decided to take it. Walking up to the receptionist at the counter, I asked her about the request.

"Excuse me ma'am~? Um, yeah sorry to bother you again but I have a question for you~."

"Hmm? Ah no don't worry about it, what's your question young man?" She asked with a perfect business smile, she'd probably work well as a receptionist at a fast-food restaurant or something.

"I would like to take the Cooking Rations quest please~!"

"Oh my, are you sure about that? Cooking 50 rations is no easy task."

"Don't worry, I'm quite confident in my cooking skills~."

"I see, well if you say so. As written on the request, the guild will provide the recipe and the ingredients. You may borrow the kitchen if you wish but just a warning, the kitchen is very basic. It might be better for you to negotiate with a restaurant and see if you can borrow their kitchen instead."

"Ah, no I think the guild's kitchen would be sufficient~."

"If you say so," she said hesitantly, she looked at me once more as if to check if I was certain before taking out a piece of paper and scribbling something on it, then handing it over to me, "Down the hallway to my left, take the 4th door on the right and you'll find the kitchen. Give the paper to the man inside and he'll give you the things you need."

"Thank you~," I said before skipping away.

Following the lady's instructions, I walked down the hallway and found the kitchen. Honestly, it was bigger than I expected, about the size of 2 classrooms. I wanted to explore a little but was stopped by a shout.

"Stop right there! This area is for staff only! Who are you?!"

An old man that was around the same height as me, was blocking my path. He had a beard that was so long it was slightly dragging across the ground and his attire consisted of a shirt, a pair of trousers, an apron and a chef hat. Wonder if this was the same guy the lady told me to report to? As I was lost in thought the old man seemed to have gotten irritated and looked liked he'd start yelling again. Which reminds me, I still haven't responded to him yet.

"Oh sorry, I'm a new adventurer that registered recently! I was told to come here by the lady at the counter, also she told me to give you thi-."

Before I could finish my sentence, the old man yanked the paper from my hand scanned through it. After seemingly reaching the end, he ripped the paper to shreds before screaming.

"Renting out MY kitchen again?! Those ungrateful sons of b**ches! AHHHH #$%[email protected]#%$!!!"

He started yelling curses in English before seeming to run out of things to say and switch to some other language and continued his cursing. After a full 5 minutes of continuous cursing, he finally seemed to have run out of breath and stopped.

"So can I use your kitchen?"

I mean whether he says yes or no probably doesn't matter since I got permission already, it'd just be annoying if he kept on trying to kick me out. If I killed him would I get in trouble? I mean obstructing work should be a crime right? As I was contemplating whether to end the life of the old man before me depending on what he said, he finally looked me in the eye after catching his breath again.

"Look here you f*cker, I'll let you do your silly little quest or whatever since you got permission but if you touch anything you're not supposed to, and I mean ANYTHING, I will skin you alive and cook your sorry ass for today's lunch!"

"Sure thing~."

Quite the kind old man, he only called me f*cker once. After seeming to be satisfied with my response he took me to the storage room with all the ingredients, he grabbed all of the ingredients necessary and threw them in front of me. He then tossed the cookbook at my face, but luckily I'm used to stuff like that and was able to catch it easily.

"Tch, there's the stuff, now go do your job quickly! We aren't paying you to dilly dally brat!" He said before storming out the storage room and plopping down on the stool by the door.

I quickly got to work after the distraction was gone, grabbing all the ingredients I quickly transported all of them to the counter before opening the cookbook. It wasn't hard to find the right recipe for the rations since there didn't seem to be much variety there. The recipe was called Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake, guess the creator of the recipe couldn't think of anything fun to name it~?

Honestly, the most annoying thing about this request would probably be getting the precise measurements for the ingredients and getting the temperature of the oven to be correct. I was able to eyeball the ingredients due to my years of experience in the kitchen but the oven was a slight problem. It was an old stone oven where you had to use wood as fuel and manually flow a pipe to adjust the temperature, I've used something like this before but honestly, it was a pain in the ass to adjust. Though luckily, the old man seemed to be irritated by my lack of skill and took over pre-heating the oven.

After boiling together the sugar, water, shortening, salt, raisins, and spices. I added flour and baking soda and mixed it well before pouring them into the pan and shoving them into the oven, now all that's left was to wait.

The old man was once again sitting on the stool with his eyes closed, I would have thought he was asleep if not for the constant sound of his feet tapping. I was looking at the fire, blowing through a pipe to increase the heat when it died down a little or added wood when the fuel seemed low.

After around 45 minutes, the cake should have been done. So I took all of the pans out and waited for them to cool for a minute or 2, after that I took the 20 cakes out of their pans and then sliced them in half. Before I realized it the old man was looking at each cake while I was slicing them, he poked some and sniffed others, sometimes his face scrunched up while other times he nodded. After going through all 40 cake rations, he looked at me and said,

"Honestly your fire control is horrible. Some of them are slightly burnt while others are slightly undercooked. But compared to the other bunch that failed miserably, you at least made the food edible."

The old man took out a piece of paper and scribbled some stuff on it that was similar to the ones the lady wrote but slightly different. He then scrunched up the paper into a ball and threw it at me suddenly. I caught the ball before confusingly looked up at him.

"What? It's proof of your completion, now get out of here asshole or do you want me to personally kick you out?"

"Oh, thanks old man, see ya~"

Finally finishing this annoying quest I was quite happy to leave. But just as I was about to leave through the door, the old man yelled out,

"If you ever want to hone your skills properly then take that quest again and come back! I don't want to see assholes waste precious ingredients."

With those as parting words, I skipped out the hallway and returned to the front to report the completion of my quest.
Quest Report:
Character: Robert Von Ducksmouth (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 0)
Quest: Slime Subsigation
Report:

To whom it may concern,

I, Robert Von Ducksmouth, took up the task of defending the city of Scribel from the vicious nuisance of the slime horde. This quest was rated as a level one quest by the City. You have wronged me! These slimes must be at least level five! My beloved sword, Ludwig Von Stabtoven, was permanently scarred by the first slime I tried to engage in combat. Further, the slime was able to repel my attacks and inflicted grievous injury to my person. Not only that, but once I engaged the first slime, twenty others pounced upon me killing my compatriot, Rolf, who was only there to carry these "slime cores" you requested. If not for the timely assistance of a carriage returning to the city which ran over the slimes, I might have perished. I did retrieve twenty of these "slime cores" from dead slimes, but I hope that you will raise the difficulty of the quest for those unfortunate level one adventurers like myself in the future.

Good day,
Robert Von Ducksmouth

Quest Report:
Character: Kail (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 0)
Quest: Cooking Rations
Report:

I have basic knowledge of cooking and so I have decided to apply for the job.

After glancing at the ration's recipe, I understood that the job requires people with high endurance rather than an expert chef.

It takes me almost an hour to chop all the ingredients for 40 rations and another 2 hours to cook all of it.

After 2 hours of carefully sorting the cook rations in the barrel, I have successfully prepared 40 rations in a day.

I may not look like it but my stamina can easily rival an experienced chef.

I hope you find the rations up to the city's standard.
Quest Report:
Character: Cassel (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 5)
Quest: Night Watch
Report:
Honestly when he first went into the guild he was worried. Since he never really bothered learning how read he thought there might be a few issues. But, luckily he found two quests he could do without much risking too much thanks to the receptionist there. The two were A) taking a night shift or B) doing manual labor for the city.

Since there wasn't a difference in the pay between the two. He chose to take the night watch. Watching over the spot assigned to him by one of guards. He blankly stared out the frontier with only the sound of some bugs greeting him and nothing to be seen beyond the light from his post.

Sighing, he idly took out the artifact he stole from the group. Looking over it, he just didn't know why such a thing would cause them to flock towards him like rats did to rotting meat. Seriously people steal a few coins from their wallets they act like they could care less but as soon as he steals one of their group's jacket all of sudden they act like he killed their mother or something. It about the same thing just a little more gets stolen.

After his grumbling he managed to somehow finish his shift without falling asleep and switched off with one of guards. Who seemed a little too happy to grab a morning shift. Then again he'd probably agree that after the night shift actually being able to see more than two inches from the nearest light source during the day was a very good benefit.

Slime Subjugation
Sponsor
: City of Scribel
Required Level: 1
Objectives:
  • Exterminate slimes in the City of Scribel.
  • Bring back 10 slime cores.
Explanation:
Slimes are a pest in Scribel, and they end up in all sorts of weird places. While they aren’t exactly dangerous, they can slowly erode structures and damage buildings over time. They also spread diseases if they get into the sewers and pick up icky stuff. Slimes are bad! Eliminating them is a public health campaign!

Rewards:
  • EXP: 100
  • Money: 1G
Quest Report

Character: Vor Saknave (Level 1)

Quest: Slime Subjugation.

Report:

After taking the quest from the Adventure Guild, I looked around the city looking for traces of corrupted ether. The mana quickly showed me the way to the sewers.

Due to my dark robe, I blended with the darkness and slowly made my way through the sewer. I found multiple demons: beastified rats, silver serpents, mutated maggots, etc... But I didn't engage with any of them as they weren't part of the quest.

After two hours, I finally found a nest of slimes. Seems like someone threw a bunch of corpses in here and these guys weren't one to say no to a feast. I'm not sure who these corpses were as they were naked and acidified. The guild might want to look further into this.

Either way, I threw fireballs at the slimes making sure not to hit the corpses(as they might prove useful later for investigation). The slimes were weak to fire magic and as such, it wasn't hard to kill them. My mana reserves did receive a toll though, I might need to bring some mana pots on later expeditions.

The ten slime cores are attached to the report.

@GM for evalution.

Feeling like I should earn some money for now, but without being particularly attracted to any of the jobs we had available at the moment, I figured I'd take a look at the pile of unappraised reports that were waiting for someone to go through.

I ended up finding this very... Simple report, I suppose.

"I have to wonder what kind of creature was there and what did they do during your watch... Are you sure you weren't dreaming?

"At the same time, I don't remember hearing any ruckus last night, so I suppose there were no issues during your watch... Still, please be more careful next time and be sure to stay awake the whole time.

"I'll give you a partial reward, may the gods guide your path, and hopefully it will be more fruitful next time."

Quest: Healing Herbs
Report:
I needed to find a decently easy job that could net me some good coin when I stumbled upon this gathering quest. Since it was simply picking up some grass, this job was right up my alley.

After registering the quest at the reception, I headed out to the local apothecary. The notice didn't put any description for the herb at all; no picture or location whatsoever. Luckily the lady that managed the apothecary was kind enough to share some information regarding the healing herb since she uses it the most.

It was a special kind of herb that grows in the outer region of a forest that was north of here. Apparently there were multiple kinds of healing herbs growing in that part of the forest.

But since the quest was looking for healing grass, then I'll only pick up healing grass.

It took me the entire day to gather the healing herbs which was definitely difficult to distinguish from normal grass. Fortunately, the apothecary advised to look for a brighter green color and had a wisp of mana when [Mana Sense] was used. Nonetheless, it was still a tiresome task since I had to carefully pluck the grass with its roots still intact. Otherwise, the quality of the healing herb will reduce and the healing property would go down in efficiency.

Hopefully I get a bonus reward for going the extra mile...

Quest: Cooking Rations
Report:

I have basic knowledge of cooking and so I have decided to apply for the job.

After glancing at the ration's recipe, I understood that the job requires people with high endurance rather than an expert chef.

It takes me almost an hour to chop all the ingredients for 40 rations and another 2 hours to cook all of it.

After 2 hours of carefully sorting the cook rations in the barrel, I have successfully prepared 40 rations in a day.

I may not look like it but my stamina can easily rival an experienced chef.

I hope you find the rations up to the city's standard.

Huh, everything seems good on your end. Having to do 40 rations sounds tough, kinda lucky I didn't choose that one starting out. Anyway here's your promised 1 G, 5 rations, and 10 exp.

The healing herbs are definitely of great quality, but that is to be expected. You get a full reward for your efforts.

Quest: Slime Subjugation.

Report:

After taking the quest from the Adventure Guild, I looked around the city looking for traces of corrupted ether. The mana quickly showed me the way to the sewers.

Due to my dark robe, I blended with the darkness and slowly made my way through the sewer. I found multiple demons: beastified rats, silver serpents, mutated maggots, etc... But I didn't engage with any of them as they weren't part of the quest.

After two hours, I finally found a nest of slimes. Seems like someone threw a bunch of corpses in here and these guys weren't one to say no to a feast. I'm not sure who these corpses were as they were naked and acidified. The guild might want to look further into this.

Either way, I threw fireballs at the slimes making sure not to hit the corpses(as they might prove useful later for investigation). The slimes were weak to fire magic and as such, it wasn't hard to kill them. My mana reserves did receive a toll though, I might need to bring some mana pots on later expeditions.

The ten slime cores are attached to the report.

@GM for evalution.
:blob_dizzy: Overworking your guild master already? Can’t you tell that I have a lot to do? Just this once, I’ll read over your report! :blob_hmph:

The bodies in the sewers are very concerning. I wonder who put them there? Maybe it would be good if someone made a quest to investigate it. The guild will fund it, of course — but maybe a heroic individual could take it into their hands. :blobthumbsup:

Full marks on the report!

What to do now? After finishing my own quest, it was necessary for me to write a report and then have someone evaluate it. However, due to how understaffed this new place was, they decided to implement a system called peer review. It seemed like it'd a while before I can get my reward.

If I were to help out with the piled up quest reports then that'd mean there would be less in the pile and a higher chance of my quest being reviewed, with that as my goal I decided to head off to the reception desk and grab the first quest I saw.

Quest Report:
Character: Robert Von Ducksmouth (Level 1) (EXP 0) (Money 0)
Quest: Slime Subsigation
Report:

To whom it may concern,

I, Robert Von Ducksmouth, took up the task of defending the city of Scribel from the vicious nuisance of the slime horde. This quest was rated as a level one quest by the City. You have wronged me! These slimes must be at least level five! My beloved sword, Ludwig Von Stabtoven, was permanently scarred by the first slime I tried to engage in combat. Further, the slime was able to repel my attacks and inflicted grievous injury to my person. Not only that, but once I engaged the first slime, twenty others pounced upon me killing my compatriot, Rolf, who was only there to carry these "slime cores" you requested. If not for the timely assistance of a carriage returning to the city which ran over the slimes, I might have perished. I did retrieve twenty of these "slime cores" from dead slimes, but I hope that you will raise the difficulty of the quest for those unfortunate level one adventurers like myself in the future.

Good day,
Robert Von Ducksmouth
Swordsman
Let's see here...
The cores are in order, so that completes the request but honestly the fact that a horde of slimes appeared near the city seems concerning. I thought slimes didn't attack unless provoked first so it seems weird for a bunch to attack at the mere presence of someone. Were they provoked by someone beforehand? Or is this a sign of something else? Oh well it's none of my concern~

Since you brought in double the slime cores then I guess it's only fair to double one of your rewards~

Quest: Cooking Rations
Report:
After being shown the way to the Guild by the kind guards and obtaining an official form of identification here, I needed to plan out what to do now. While on one hand, I could go straight to continuing my search for Her, on the other I could do quests and try to get accustomed to life as an adventurer first. After mulling over what to do for a while, I decided instead of just standing there doing nothing I should go look at what kind of requests there are first of all. If it's stuff like slaying demons and dragons then it'd probably be better for me to just leave this place.

Going up to the board that was bigger than I thought, I started to scan through all of the things posted there. My eyes instantly zoomed in on the request saying Cooking Rations. Not to brag or anything but cooking is one of the few things I'm proud of, due to the fact the She couldn't cook at all and it was up to me to either cook or starve back then, anyways after looking it over I thought it was easy enough and decided to take it. Walking up to the receptionist at the counter, I asked her about the request.

"Excuse me ma'am~? Um, yeah sorry to bother you again but I have a question for you~."

"Hmm? Ah no don't worry about it, what's your question young man?" She asked with a perfect business smile, she'd probably work well as a receptionist at a fast-food restaurant or something.

"I would like to take the Cooking Rations quest please~!"

"Oh my, are you sure about that? Cooking 50 rations is no easy task."

"Don't worry, I'm quite confident in my cooking skills~."

"I see, well if you say so. As written on the request, the guild will provide the recipe and the ingredients. You may borrow the kitchen if you wish but just a warning, the kitchen is very basic. It might be better for you to negotiate with a restaurant and see if you can borrow their kitchen instead."

"Ah, no I think the guild's kitchen would be sufficient~."

"If you say so," she said hesitantly, she looked at me once more as if to check if I was certain before taking out a piece of paper and scribbling something on it, then handing it over to me, "Down the hallway to my left, take the 4th door on the right and you'll find the kitchen. Give the paper to the man inside and he'll give you the things you need."

"Thank you~," I said before skipping away.

Following the lady's instructions, I walked down the hallway and found the kitchen. Honestly, it was bigger than I expected, about the size of 2 classrooms. I wanted to explore a little but was stopped by a shout.

"Stop right there! This area is for staff only! Who are you?!"

An old man that was around the same height as me, was blocking my path. He had a beard that was so long it was slightly dragging across the ground and his attire consisted of a shirt, a pair of trousers, an apron and a chef hat. Wonder if this was the same guy the lady told me to report to? As I was lost in thought the old man seemed to have gotten irritated and looked liked he'd start yelling again. Which reminds me, I still haven't responded to him yet.

"Oh sorry, I'm a new adventurer that registered recently! I was told to come here by the lady at the counter, also she told me to give you thi-."

Before I could finish my sentence, the old man yanked the paper from my hand scanned through it. After seemingly reaching the end, he ripped the paper to shreds before screaming.

"Renting out MY kitchen again?! Those ungrateful sons of b**ches! AHHHH #$%[email protected]#%$!!!"

He started yelling curses in English before seeming to run out of things to say and switch to some other language and continued his cursing. After a full 5 minutes of continuous cursing, he finally seemed to have run out of breath and stopped.

"So can I use your kitchen?"

I mean whether he says yes or no probably doesn't matter since I got permission already, it'd just be annoying if he kept on trying to kick me out. If I killed him would I get in trouble? I mean obstructing work should be a crime right? As I was contemplating whether to end the life of the old man before me depending on what he said, he finally looked me in the eye after catching his breath again.

"Look here you f*cker, I'll let you do your silly little quest or whatever since you got permission but if you touch anything you're not supposed to, and I mean ANYTHING, I will skin you alive and cook your sorry ass for today's lunch!"

"Sure thing~."

Quite the kind old man, he only called me f*cker once. After seeming to be satisfied with my response he took me to the storage room with all the ingredients, he grabbed all of the ingredients necessary and threw them in front of me. He then tossed the cookbook at my face, but luckily I'm used to stuff like that and was able to catch it easily.

"Tch, there's the stuff, now go do your job quickly! We aren't paying you to dilly dally brat!" He said before storming out the storage room and plopping down on the stool by the door.

I quickly got to work after the distraction was gone, grabbing all the ingredients I quickly transported all of them to the counter before opening the cookbook. It wasn't hard to find the right recipe for the rations since there didn't seem to be much variety there. The recipe was called Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake, guess the creator of the recipe couldn't think of anything fun to name it~?

Honestly, the most annoying thing about this request would probably be getting the precise measurements for the ingredients and getting the temperature of the oven to be correct. I was able to eyeball the ingredients due to my years of experience in the kitchen but the oven was a slight problem. It was an old stone oven where you had to use wood as fuel and manually flow a pipe to adjust the temperature, I've used something like this before but honestly, it was a pain in the ass to adjust. Though luckily, the old man seemed to be irritated by my lack of skill and took over pre-heating the oven.

After boiling together the sugar, water, shortening, salt, raisins, and spices. I added flour and baking soda and mixed it well before pouring them into the pan and shoving them into the oven, now all that's left was to wait.

The old man was once again sitting on the stool with his eyes closed, I would have thought he was asleep if not for the constant sound of his feet tapping. I was looking at the fire, blowing through a pipe to increase the heat when it died down a little or added wood when the fuel seemed low.

After around 45 minutes, the cake should have been done. So I took all of the pans out and waited for them to cool for a minute or 2, after that I took the 20 cakes out of their pans and then sliced them in half. Before I realized it the old man was looking at each cake while I was slicing them, he poked some and sniffed others, sometimes his face scrunched up while other times he nodded. After going through all 40 cake rations, he looked at me and said,

"Honestly your fire control is horrible. Some of them are slightly burnt while others are slightly undercooked. But compared to the other bunch that failed miserably, you at least made the food edible."

The old man took out a piece of paper and scribbled some stuff on it that was similar to the ones the lady wrote but slightly different. He then scrunched up the paper into a ball and threw it at me suddenly. I caught the ball before confusingly looked up at him.

"What? It's proof of your completion, now get out of here asshole or do you want me to personally kick you out?"

"Oh, thanks old man, see ya~"

Finally finishing this annoying quest I was quite happy to leave. But just as I was about to leave through the door, the old man yelled out,

"If you ever want to hone your skills properly then take that quest again and come back! I don't want to see assholes waste precious ingredients."

With those as parting words, I skipped out the hallway and returned to the front to report the completion of my quest.
Wow, this one is a first. For the old man himself to acknowledge your work, you must be really good! Also, who is this receptionist that told you to cook 50 rations?!! The quest clearly stated 40. Either way, you get full reward for satisfying the old man making food for the boys. Good job!

Quest: Slime Subjugation
----------------------------
Slime subjugation, huh.

I looked down at the piece of paper in my hand - a copy of the quest requirements. Although ten slime cores might not seem like many, slimes were surprisingly difficult to find. Despite searching for half an hour, I still hadn't found any.

*squish* *squish*

Hopeful to find some slimes, I quickly went over to the back alley where the sound had come from and saw a bunch of slimes just sitting around eating trash. It looked like this area hadn't been tended in a while, as there were possibly a dozen or so in the one alley.

They look pretty weak. Using my ability to form shift, I changed my left hand into a claw. It easily teared through the slime's thin membrane, and I grabbed the core inside.

"Got one!"

As soon as the core was removed from the slime's body, it stopped moving and puddled onto the ground, lifeless.

Not bothering to clean it, I just put the core in my bag. It wouldn't dirty anything in there, as the magic space would keep the items inside separated.

I winced as a stinging sensation on the arm covered in slime - I had forgotten about their corrosiveness. It was a relatively simple task to burn it off with my fox fire. Despite that, it still left a rash on my skin.

I should get some of those healing herbs later.

I continued in this manner, yanking the cores out of the slimes, quickly burning off the corrosive residue, and stowing the core away. After killing all the slimes, I fully activated my fox fire. I hadn't used it on the slimes earlier, since it might damage the precious items, but leaving slime corpses around would be pretty bad. It took a couple minutes, but the slimes burned nicely. Once they were all gone, I put out the fox fire and returned to the guild to report.

Retrieved: 13 slime cores

Quest: Night Watch

Report:

Due to the suspicious activities happening within the city, I chose a less daunting task this time to grind my levels. It seemed that guarding the city at night would be a safe and uneventful endeavor.

I was wrong.

By the middle of the night, a veiled man came screaming at the gates. He was wearing ragged clothes so we assumed that he was a bandit. The other guard nocked their bows while I was chanting my fireball spell. However, his scream for help stopped us dead in our tracks.

Following protocol, we reported to the guard in chief who ordered the opening of the backdoor. We let the man in and he told us the craziest story ever. He said that their leader had found a large slime nest deep in the woods. Knowing how easy slimes were to kill and how valuable were their cores, they decided to farm them for some quick gold.

Throughout the whole day, they kept farming. They killed slimes by the hundreds if not thousands. They knew that they struck it rich. By the end of the day, tired but still very excited, they came back to their settlement and partied for a bit. They drank booze like there was no tomorrow and had fun with the girls. After the party, they just dropped dead on the floor, too tired to even go back to their sleeping rooms.

What they didn't expect was for the slimes that they have been farming for the whole day to follow them back to the settlement. Once the man woke up, Frank was his name, he found his comrades being eaten by the slimes. He whipped out his blade and started slashing at them, but the more he killed the more came. In the end, he just ran away while screaming for the others to wake up. However, everyone was too drunk to do anything.

Once Frank ran away to safety, he looked back at the settlement and was horrified. Thousands, if not tens of thousands of slimes had covered it from every angle. The thing was green. Some parts of the buildings started falling down from the acidity. In the end, he just turned around and ran with all his might towards the city.

We asked him why he, out of all of the bandits, was able to stay sober even after the party. He said that he wasn't feeling too well that night and didn't drink much. His breath confirmed his story.

I'm not sure how much of what he said holds up, but I think that the guild should send a scouting party. A horde of ten thousand slimes like this guy said is gonna be tough to handle for anyone.

PS: The chief guard sent Frank to the city prison for now

Required Level: 1
Objectives:
  • Spend a day as cleaning the Tavern.
  • Help out around the Tavern.
Explanation:
So you know that Tavern where a bunch of adventurer's live? Since it's owned by the government, the city will pay for you to work there. Sweep the floors, do the laundry, wash the dishes, help out at the bar...

Rewards:
  • EXP: 10
  • Money: 1G
It was disheartening to see the list of quests available. Not only were there no tasks appropriate for a priestess, but the payment was also painfully low.

On the other hand, they weren't particularly troublesome for the most part, though I wonder how harmless are the slimes of this world to make killing 10 of them worth barely enough to live one day... Back home a slime was something terrifying enough to make people evacuate entire villages when they approached.

I suppose it's a good thing that they aren't very dangerous though, it might mean this world is more peaceful than mine, which is always a good thing.

Nonetheless, I had to make a living somehow, so I took this task that seemed fairly simple and went to the tavern to see what help might be needed.

Once I entered the place, I instantly felt the disgusting smell of alcohol fill the air... Moreover, there was something else that smelled horrible in here... Is that a man puking? Oh, goddess, that is definitely a man puking on the ground... This really is not a place befitting of a priestess.

Taking a deep breath, I moved towards the counter to see with the bartender if he could tell me what were the details of my job... Once I got close however, I started to notice he was a bit too big, his body must be easily over 2m tall, maybe 2.50m even, not to mention his extremely bulky body... Is this really the standard of a barkeeper? Why would they need such big physique for such a job? I hope it's not to fight troublemakers within the establishment, it would be considerably troublesome if this was such a common occurrence to the point someone this strong is needed in here... I'd prefer to go through this day peacefully.

I was already regretting my decision of coming here, but it was still important to finish the task, it would do no good to blemish the name of the goddess by failing to fulfill the duties I have taken.

With my mind made up, I slowly approached the counter and once again noticed how out of the norm his build was, if the temple had someone like this around, then there is no way those people would have dared to attack it... No, stop thinking about this kind of thing, Nene, it's pointless to worry about the past now.

I took a deep breath and called the attention of the Barkeeper, "Excuse me, who could I speak with in order to clear the task of working as a maid for a day within the tavern?"

He slowly turned around to look at me, and when he did... I saw an Orc. A terrifying Orc was cleaning a mug behind the counter of a tavern.... My surprise was such that I jumped backwards and fell on the ground while making an embarrassing yell... That was a terrible start.

The Orc however, just laughed, and so did the other patrons at the establishment, which ruined any remaining dignity I had in me... Once the monster behind the counter stopped laughing though, he gave me a gentle smile and said, "No worries, happens to almost everyone in their first time." It made me feel slightly better that I wasn't the only one that had this reaction at least... Regardless, the Orc continued, "I'm Pierre, you?" And that was the most un-Orc-like name I ever heard of... Weren't them usually named with extremely brutal names that are hard to even pronounce?

It was none of my business I suppose... I slowly got up while brushing of the dust of my robes before replying, "Nene."

"Well Nene, you just need to go to the kitchen, get an apron and a mop and start working! What we don't lack are places to clean here!" He said with a proud tone... That's disgusting. "Hey, don't look at me like that, we're understaffed after the last maid quit after giving birth, so we're really in need of some helping hands." I see... At least he is aware that the tavern is supposed to be kept clean then.

I answered him cleanly, "Very well, I'll see what I can do." and then entered the door to the kitchen... Which was a mess. How do people even cook inside here? Won't the clients get sick if they eat food cooked in this kind of place?

I heaved a deep sigh, it seems like today will be a long long day... And all this will only pay me enough to eat for one day? This is quite the extortion, don't the gods of this world teach how to respect the work of others?

Well, nothing will get done if I just lament the condition of the surroundings though, so let's get started... I asked around for an apron, a mop, a clean rag and a bucket of water, and the people inside were glad to give those to me, though the "clean" rag was not nearly clean enough.

After thoroughly washing the rag until it was in acceptable conditions, I started cleaning the kitchen's floor, though it was a slow process as I had to dodge the cooks that were working on a clearly hectic schedule. Once that was done, I started helping with cleaning a few of the apparatus that weren't being used, though I never had the chance of cleaning the ovens as those always had at least one cook needing them... A pity.

Next was to clean the dishes which were piled on top of one another, they had already ran out of clean dishes and were just quickly scrubbing the dirty ones in order to reuse them... That is just asking to get their patrons sick, dear goddess, those people are hopeless... Or rather, whoever thought it was better to pay a misery for someone to clean up the place for them every now and then is the hopeless one, they should be more aware of the harm they are bringing to the citizens of this town.

It took a few hours to finally be done with the dishes, because there was a constant influx of new dirty dishes to be washed that seemed to never stop coming... And once that was over, my back was in pain and my arms needed to rest... Alas, I didn't really have much time to slack, or more dirty dishes would soon flood the kitchen.

So in order to avoid getting tangled on that again, I took the mop and went to the part of the tavern that had the patrons, and then started cleaning the floor there... It was good to change positions a bit as that avoided the pain getting worse, but... Dear goddess, this place is absurdly dirty. I never imagined it was possible to have so much puke gathered together in one establishment, how do people still come here even with those conditions is beyond me.

Surprisingly though, it was actually easier to work in this area than it was in the kitchen, for the patrons actively helped me in getting any tableware or knocked out people out of the way and let me clean in peace. I suppose they were also bothered by the dirt... It's good to know that they have at least this much common sense, even if they don't have enough sense to not come to a place as dirty as this one in the first place.

When I finished this part, I hurried back to the kitchen to find... Yet another pile of dirty dishes waiting for me... Good grief.

By the time I was done with that one, it was already near sunset, so I gave them back the apron and the tools I used, ate something at the tavern (which went into Pierre's tab) and then went back to the guild to report a job well done... And also used the opportunity to file a complaint against whoever was the owner of the tavern as they clearly weren't promoting a safe environment for the workers nor the patrons that were within the establishment.

OOC: @Ophious, can you give this one a look for me, please?
