#405 Slapped Senseless

March 22, 2024
Get slapped. Get working.


Giant floating hand, Keeptender, nimbly dodges a barrage of throwing weapons as it approaches the guards that are exiting through a hole in the wall. Quackles the Jester gives hints to Keeptender.
SFX: Tack tack tack tack tack tack tack
Quackles: “Hint: Dodge spears and stuff in order to avoid being impaled.”

Keeptender slaps some of the guards, knocking them around. They get hypnotized by the slaps.
Quackles: “Hint: Owl people are the perfect height to be slapped around.”
SFX: Slap slap slap

Keeptender points the hypnotized guards to clog the hole in the wall with their bodies. The guards do as told, all saluting to their new commander.
Guard: “Keeptender is word!”
Quackles: “Hint: These guys have a thing called Protocol #31, which stands for “Clog that pathway”.”

Stygian Lord says:

The Keeptender is a curious creature. It flies around in the air at incredible speeds, despite having no wings or other means of propulsion.

Despite having no eyes or ears, somehow, it can sense what happens or is said around it.

It’s work and hobbies include finding and recruiting creatures to endlessly build keeps and dungeons, and then maintaining those creatures by paying them and offering them refreshments and entertainment.

The Aviatar, being the natural adventurer-hoarder that he is, has made it a habit to infiltrate and loot Keeptender’s dwellings.
