Default Choose your own adventure!

Except there aren't any pre-defined paths and I'm making it all up as we go.

Now let's get started!

You open your eyes and find you're in a dimly-lit room. There are two flags, each on opposite walls. One is red, and you suspect it's dyed with blood. The other is blue, and richly embroidered. There is a door under each of them. There are no other exits.

What do you do?

Red. The Blue side still has depravities left to do.

Knock on the blue door, then the red.

Surely this complex is garrisoned by a single faction that controls both doors.

You knock on both doors, not sure what you're trying to accomplish.
...
...
...
Nothing happens. Not liking the smug look of the Blue flag, you walk through the door under the Red flag. As you enter a room similar to the last one, it slams shut behind you. Looking about this incredibly unremarkable room, you notice 13 sigils scattered across the floor.

They depict
  • An ancient staff, crackling with eldritch energies.
  • The paw of a great animal, with small vines wrapping around it.
  • A serpentine eye, with a target superimposed on it.
  • A golden ankh, bursting with nobility and courage.
  • A staff with a cross in it. It seems two-sided.
  • A wicked looking dagger, dripping with noxious poison.
  • A scowling totem, surrounded by strong gusts of wind.
  • A demonic face. This one just seems to ooze evil.
  • A simple sword.
  • Two crossed bones, with a frozen skull leering out at you.
  • A keg of beer, with a staff layed next to it.
  • A basic pick ax. You see nothing remarkable about it.
  • A masterfully made mask. The elegance coming off of it is almost palpable.

There is an inset on the opposite wall. You could probably fit a sigil there, you think.

Put the paw inside of the inset.

Take the "beer keg and staff" one and shatter it so that it's only the keg.

Attach this keg to whichever sigil our team chooses.

Feeling a little thirsty, you pick up the Keg and Staff sigil. Not wanting to bother with any of that 'staff' nonsense, you break it cleanly in two. Dropping the half with the staff, you then are forced into a tough decision. On one hand, that mask is looking really tempting. On the other hand, the claw seems like it holds great power. Picking them both up, you notice a strange attraction between the two. You put them together, and they flash bright white. Opening your eyes, you see they've combined. It's now a mask carved out of wood, with birds flying about. Placing the keg on it, that same flash occurs. The sigil is now of a wooden mask, but with intricate bubbling tubes winding about it.

You walk over to the inset, then insert the sigil. It all goes black after that.
...
...
...

Waking up, you take a quick moment to remember who you are. You're Elijiah Walker, Gilnean noble and owner of the famous Walker brewery. Or at least, you were, not since those dratted forsaken came and ruined everything. At least those pompous purple elves came to help. Hell, they even taught you a few tricks too.
Walking over to the window of your temporary tree domicile, you jump out and swiftly assume the form of a raven.

What next?

You fly over to closest thing to a pub here in Darnassus. You land, change shape back to your human self and walk in.

Called The Illustrious Vine, it's less of an actual building and more of an open air gathering spot. Night Elves from across the city meet here and discuss silly elven things. The establishment lacks any hard liqour, and serves only various fermented fruit drinks.

You take a seat, order the strongest thing they have (sparkling strawberry cider), and think about how much you miss Gilnean Whiskey. If you could at least get a basic distillery up, then you'd have all the booze your heart desires.

As you sit there moping, one of those strange elves comes approaches. She's well dressed, but a little soft around the edges. Also a little tipsy, judging by her gait.

Each of the sigils represented what class the character could be. The mask was for a noble of some sort.

"Hey baby."

(turn into a Winterspring Frostsaber)

"Need a mount?"


EDIT: Don't really do this. Just have the character think about it.

Just making sure I wasn't railroading the interests of our multiple personalitied Gilnean, this noble druid of the rye.

I can't wait to turn into a literal drunken monkey.

You look at her, and think about using one of your many, many, druid-based pick up lines. You then think about the success rates of said lines, vs. the number of drinks you've had thrown at you.

You are pretty lonely though.

You flash a quick smile at her. "Hey baby," you say, "Wanna take a ride?" you shift into a large black cat and walk over. Somehow, you manage to leer at her. She giggles, and claps her hands exitedly.

"Ooh, you're a druid! A fancy human druid! That's so adorable!" She climbs on, and whispers into your ear "Is it true what they say about the size of a mans top hat?"
Shit. This is the farthest you've gotten with a lady in years. And it's an elf, to boot. Hopefully it's at least not one of those High Elves. You can't stand them, or their fancy magic. And it's not like you can take the elf back home either. A Gilnean lord, living in a tiny tree house? Preposterous! Why, she'd laugh you back to the Eastern Kingdoms!

She's a Night Elf! A savage! This is probably an everyday occurrence for people like her.
