The RPG Story
In the land of Archwontok, there lived a battle mage named Mandroth. Mandroth showed chivalry (n courtesy, honorableness, bravery) when he and a tauren, named Thunderfist, entered a cave inhabited by giant spiders and goblins. It all started when Mandroth and Thunderfist entered the cave. Coming to an intersection, the two did not know which way to go. They turned down a path so thin that you would have to walk in a lateral (adj sideways) manner in order to fit through it. As they began walking towards the chosen path, they heard a low rumble. The rumble turned into a squall (n violent windstorm) with sand and rocks whipping around everywhere. The squall was followed by a group of giant spiders stampeding towards Mandroth and Thunderfist. Noticing that the path was somehow covered in grass, Mandroth shot a small blast of fire at the ground, which in turn started a raging blaze. The cave lit up and before the flames consumed everything, the two ran outside. While the cave was destroyed, so was the group of spiders that started the squall. Mandroth and Thunderfist gingerly made their way through the fiery rubble. As they made their way through the ruins, Thunderfist and Mandroth noticed a small indent in the left wall.
The two saw a treasure chest which they thought was filled with gold. Knowing that their certitude (n assurance, sureness, conviction) would prove them right, they opened up the chest. When they did all they saw was emptiness except for twenty large viles. The two each took half of the viles and began their trek again. As they were going to walk away, Mandroth came up with a brilliant idea. The idea was to fill the viles with the venom of the dead spiders. Thunderfist handed his bronze dagger over to Mandroth, who cut a small slit into the spiders head. Opening it up a little wider, Mandroth insinuated (v hint, suggest, imply) that he had found the venom sacs by nodding his head in confirmation. Cutting them off with meticulous care, Mandroth finally obtained the venom. This process went on and when all the venom sacs were taken out, Thunderfist squeezed all the venom out and into the viles. Finally, all the viles were filled and the two resumed their trek down the newly widened path. When they reached the end, Mandroth and Thunderfist saw a group of at least eighty goblins huddled around a fire and feasting on the remains of what used to be giant spiders. Seeing that the fire was not surrounded by rocks, Thunderfist told Mandroth to roll a vile into the fire.
Adult black widow spiders have a shiny, black, rounded, circular abdomen and are about 1/3 inch long (about 1-1/2 inches when their legs are spread). Adult spiders have two reddish or yellowish triangles on their bottom which looks like an hourglass marking, and their body color is dark colored usually black or sometimes dark brown. They are usually recognized because of their red or red-orange ...
It was patent (adj clear, obvious, evident) that Thunderfist knew what he was doing and he wanted it done. Mandroth mustered up all his mettle (n spirit, resolution, courage) and accurately rolled the vile. It rolled slowly, slowly, slowly until it finally reached the center of the fire. The heat caused the vile to explode sending glass and venom-gas all over the place. Goblins began dropping dead left and right as the gas spewed out from the shattered vile. Soon the gas began to head in Mandroth and Thunderfist’s direction. The two turned around and ran for their lives fearing that the gas would catch up and they would be killed. When they finally made it outside, they rested for about an hour just to be sure that the gas died off. When they thought it was safe, Thunderfist found a piece of pliable (adj easily bent), half-melted, piece of copper and pried the door open. Mandroth and Thunderfist began their way down the path and into the corridor. When they reached the corridor, they searched through the dead goblins in hopes of finding weapons, potions, or articles of clothing. What they found was as follows: a half-melted bronze mace, a steel gladius, four iron swords, and one bow and arrow.

Mandroth and Thunderfist split the loot and exited the cave. As soon as they exited the cave, Mandroth tripped over a flask of a clear liquid. Mandroth picked it up and put in his bag. Thunderfist and Mandroth made there way down a path which led to a city. When they entered the city they visited an alchemist who told them what the liquid was. It turned out to be Arcksicocknove which is an odorless and tasteless liquid which assassins used to assassinate their target. Mandroth kept this liquid in case he needed it for future circumstances. As they exited the city, Mandroth overheard two warlocks discussing what they would rummage out next from the merchant caravan that they had raided and destroyed. Hearing this, Mandroth and Thunderfist headed over towards the destroyed caravan. When they arrived they were stopped by a dwarf and a blood elf. They were the city’s law enforcement people. Both Mandroth and Thunderfist were shocked that they had been caught. Knowing that they had solid proof that would free them, Mandroth and Thunderfist remained calm. When they got to court, Mandroth testified that he overheard two warlocks saying that they would rummage through the caravan that they destroyed. The judge, after Mandroth’s testimony, granted them impunity (n exemption from penalty or punishment) from being imprisoned for three years. As soon as they were freed they went back to the caravan were they rummaged through and took some goods. Five years later, the two comrades became indulgent (adj lenient, tolerant, pampering) with each other’s lifestyle and eventually they got to the point like they were good brothers.
