Day 1932 g.e. BeerBurgh
It was dusk when a hooded dude and a giant grey wolf entered the Beerburgh via south gate. The smell of beer flourish in the air, and the noise from the tavern was getting louder and louder.
“Are you sure about it?” said the giant grey wolf, “Isn’t it against rule #10086? Gods shalt not reveal themselves.”
“But, the mortals can see us! A big wolf and Death, will surely make them panic! I don’t know you but I don’t want any trouble.”
REMEMBER, THOU ARE IN BEERBURGH. The dark figure poke a drunkard lying on the sidewalk with his sickle. WHERE EVERYONE IS TOO DRUNK TO PANIC. WITH SO MANY MUGS OF BEER, PEOPLE TEND TO CONSIDER ANYTHING WITH FOUR LEGS AS A PONY. The drunkard began snoring.
“I hope you’re right.” said the wolf. “So, the man with wolfblood is in here? Beerburgh? Don’t tell me he’s in a tavern”
TAVERN, YES, EXACTLY.
“Then remind me again why I can’t create a hero like other gods?”
THOU NEED A HERO WITH WOLFBLOOD, WHICH UNFORTUNATELY NOT IN THE HERO CREATION TEMPLATE.
“Alright… Why do I have a bad feeling about this?”
Day 1926 g.e. Last Resort
“Congratulations! Your lycanthropy has been CURED!”
“What do you mean, Doc?”
“You’re cured! You’re no longer suffer from silver!” The doctor looked down, trying to avoid the man’s cat-like eyes.
“Look at ME, Doc! Look into my EYES!” the man growled, “Look at me, look at what I’ve become! Meow! What have you done!”
“But Sir! You’re still human! Well, almost”
“HUMAN? Look at these cat ears! They supposed to be human ears! And the cat tail!” The man used his cat tail to sweep a cup off the doctor’s desk as he shouted out. “What kind of human have cat tail? Meow!”
“Werecat? Wait wait wait stop! S-T-O-P! Put me down! At least you don’t change into a werewolf under the full moon!”
“Yeah, but I will change whenever I am angry, like NOW!”
“Please, please, no no no no NOOOOOO!”
“Give me one reason not to kill you.” The man growl in a deep voice.
“Your lycanthropy is not infectious as you’re not a monster.” The doctor said in desperate.
Day 1932 g.e. BeerBurgh
“So, that’s the reason you didn’t kill him?” asked the giant grey wolf.
“Well, I don’t want to be a criminal. Meow.” Said the man as he drank down a mug of beer. “Ya know, I used to be a guard. Alright, that’s how I turned into a werewolf and werecat. If you want to hear the story that how I became a werewolf, buy me more beer.”
“Great, wolfblood and catblood. Should I pay you extra?” the wolf said to the ancient immortal.
IT’S HARD TO FIND A QUALIFIED CANDIDATE. SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO COMPROMISE.
“Well then,” the wolf nodded, and summon a barrel of beer out of nowhere. “Tell us your whole story and all the beer is yours”
“Ha! You will regret this! Meow.” the man laughed, and started to tell his sad story.
“My name is Lunar Claw. I was born in a small village near Trollbridge. When I was born, my parents consulted an old Gipsy woman, and she gave me this name. Pretty strange, isn’t it? Well, a week later she was accused to be a witch and was burnt alive. Later that year, when my parents went to town with me, an avalanche destroyed the whole village, no survivor.”
“We moved to Godville after that, but it’s hard to live there since we have lost everything. For a few years, life was difficult. .Mother could no longer stand poverty and decided to run off. That morning, when I woke up, she was gone. The word is that she board the LoneStar, and the ship was never found then.”
IT SANK. SORRY.
“I knew it. And I started to get used to such things. My father was sad, until he was decapitated by a watermelon when he was chasing a thief. The guards caught the thief, but the judge thought he was not guilty because the judge didn’t believe a watermelon can decapitate a man. I attended the court trail, when the judge announced that, I ran out the court house crying, only to see a meteorite slammed on the court house. ”
“No survivor, right?” asked the wolf.
“You bet it. I was sent to an orphan house in Dogville after that. The owner and the children disliked me, they said I was cursed. They were right. On the Christmas day, the cook decided I should eat dogfood with the dogs outside, while they enjoyed the feast inside the house. I dreamed about roast meat that night. And the next morning, I found the orphan house was burnt down while everyone was sleeping.”
“Well, just skip these part, and tell me how you get the wolfblood. I mean lycanthropy. You can still keep all the beer.” The wolf decided to hear the story before he ran away out of fear.
“Few years later, being the only candidate, I became a guard in Bumchester. A month ago, an idiot summoned a Wherewolf in the center of town. We killed the boss, but I was bitten. Then, I became a werewolf. ”
PLEASE, DON’T ASK WHAT HAPPENED THERE. YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE DETAILS.
“So you went to a doctor in Last Resort?”
“Yes, as I told you earlier, he cured me by turning me into a cat. Meow. But I can still turn into a werewolf. ”
“You went to Beerburgh after that?”
“No. First I went to Monsterdam, tried to apply for a guard there. But I was rejected, since I was not monster enough. Then, I took a job from a group of beerwolves, escort them along with some beers to Beerburgh. It was easy at first, just have to fend off some beerburglars. But when we rested near Herowin, they were killed by some heroes. Heroes also took all the beer. I was out in Herowin to buy some supplies, so I survived. But I found a note on a beerwolf’s body, it says ‘Sent the beer to Beerburgh, the more they drink, the higher chance we win.’ Mission accomplished! I guess. Having nothing to do, I decided to go to Beerburgh to drown myself in beer.”
SO IT’S YOU.
“What?” said the wolf.
SORRY, CHINESE WOLF, YOU NEED TO FIND ANOTHER HERO. YOU WILL BE REFUNDED. Death took off his hood. ALL THOSE YEARS, I WANT TO KNOW WHO CAUSED THOSE ACCIDENT. LUNAR CLAW, YOU ARE ACCOUNT FOR THOSE ABNORMAL DEATH. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH TROUBLE YOU CAUSE ME?
“Sorry for that. Mr. wolf, thanks for your beer. I guess my time is up. Just wait till I finish this mug…”
“Wait! Sign this first!” the wolf handed, well, pawed him a contract.
“Done. What’s this?” asked Lunar Claw.
“A contract. You’re my hero now. And I am your god, Chinese Wolf.”
NO, THOU CAN NOT DO THAT!
“Why can’t I? He’s a veteran and he has wolfblood.”
HE IS MINE!
“He’ll be yours until I resurrect him. ” the wolf wagged his tail, “Sometimes, we have to COMPROMISE.”
