Default Clerical Mistake

One moment you stand chained to a wooden platform in the middle of a plaza, the audience eagerly awaiting for the executioner's axe to separate your head from the rest of your body. The next you're crashing down to the forest's ground, the now-spherical remains of the wooden platform breaking beneath you. As you realize the chains no longer restrain you, your body begins to contort. It spasms violently as your thoughts dim and your senses grow dull.

You can hear a strange, yet familiar, murmuring in your head. You can't discern much from it, only that there six different voices and that you can only distinguish the word Miracle from the incomprehensible parts.

An incoherent thought forms in your mind before you quickly forget it away. The curses are clearly messing with your head.

You kneel, close your eyes and plead to the murmurs in your head for the miracle that they so desire to give you. Almost as if by instinct you pour your essence into your pleading and form six mysterious, yet familiar gestures with your hand. And then your essence snaps back and you open your eyes.

You see six divine powers gathering in front of you. Even through you can't see them you can sense definitely sense them and their purpose. A spark of light appears in front of you and a small sack drops on the ground on your lap.

You grab it and after a careful examination you recognize it. It's an magical object crafted by weave wizards and sold to the wealthy. It can carry many items inside regardless of their size of weight. You had one of these Bags of Hold. This one seems to have it's arcane magic mixed with the touch of divine beings, something you never saw before. The sack itself has long cord that you can tie around your waist. You do so.

The murmurs in your head manage to tell you some information about the bag and invite you to test it on the platform below you.

You stand on a perfectly circular platform made of wooden planks, each one nailed four times to two wooden beams. A blade, that looks like the edge of a axe that was perfectly slice from the rest of it, rests near where your neck was. All of these release a powerful outwordly taste into the air and the murmurs grow stronger, encouraging you to pick them up, whenever you look at them.

The platform stands in the middle of a small dirt road, large enough for two to talk side by side. The grass around the road is starting to creep into it, implying that it has been unkempt for a while. To one end of the road you can see a small house located five minutes away. You can't see the other end because it curves into the forest.

The forest itself around the road is made mostly of Birch trees although you can see some different ones you don't recognize in the distance.

(yep mistakes happen)

The murmurs in your head grow frantic as you consider this thought. Whoever they are they don't want you to let go off the planks and nails that you stand on, or the metallic blade embedded in the wood. They demand, request, plead, beg; an absurdity of alien thoughts pound into your feverish head.

After a while they calm down to a few whispers, managing to convey a sense of loss from missing the power in those items and that others will eagerly come to take if you don't. You half-ear a quip about going into a forest without a weapon.

Eventually these whispers wane enough for you to reconsider your earlier thoughts. To which side of the woods do you want to go? Left or Right.

Or at least what you think are arms. You don't know if you have any of those either.

You pick one of the birch sticks from the ground and decide to use it as a weapon. It's thin and you won't be able to do much besides harmlessly whipping you enemies.

The murmurs again grow stronger in your head, and you can feel their disappointment through them. Disappointed at your lack of trust in those that saved you. Two of these are different, one is clearly derisive at the wasted time, while the other is clearly amused by your actions.

Then the murmurs grow focus and cooperative, roughly managing to transmit to you a simple message. That they are starving for sacrifices and that the protection they grant you from your curses will disappear with them if they starve.

You can feel a sense of disgust from the voices at your foolish self-sacrifice, quickly replaced by what they desire being repeated over and over again. They want food.

No matter how hard you whip your head the voices don't stop the incessant murmurs. You can hear disappointed groans and amused cackling coming from the depths of your mind.

You already picked the biggest stick you could find on the ground. You're not strong enough to break one from the trees.

You can see the stick in front of you and you can see a unknown structure attached to the stick with the other end attached to you. When you wish for the structure to whip the ground it does so.
