My approach on writing an RPG-styled Adventure story. This one's kinda filled with random stuff that makes you go 'what the hell' in addition of ruining your innocent minds.

Part 2-6 : Elder Scrolls
Note : this is an independent POV, meaning the narration told would not affect the actual knowledge of the Protagonists, so well...let's get back to the story
I have to take note of myself that regardless of all my thorough lack of talents whilst devoid of all kinds of motivation, there's one thing that I can assure you about something I'm capable of besides being a completely useless freeloader in all of this tangible occasions within each and every single day I've lived up until now. Within this uneventful days of myself feeling empty and obnoxious as a lonesome teenager without future within the streets of Avalon, there I thought about something which I can do that many others can't.
It all begins within one night of pondering about my boundlessness of stupidity, after the umpteenth time of dropping out from school, being labelled as a dunce due to my incapability to learn. Well, you could see it was obvious that I was grounded. Being told to stay inside this dark, cramped room of mine in the attic, doing things like pondering about my mistakes on how I had been such a disgraceful shame put onto my family, like my entire existence up for now were all had been an unsinkable curse. Well, it's through no fault of my own they should suffer due to my utter stupidity as I'm merely just doing things in whichever way I can.
Why can't they just accept me as I am? I've longed for a family which in turn would accept me as the rightful sons of theirs. Me who couldn't do worth anything, but at least I'm still alive, breathing, healthy, and most importantly, I'm happy regardless of all these shortcomings of mine, in contrast of the genius kid in some school I went to, she never smiled at all, it turns out a year later that she committed suicide in her early teens. Was it due to the notion that beckons her, the longing for petty things such as appreciation?
I could safely said that in one way or another, she had reached upon the stairways of enlightenment. You couldn't truly survive in this world by continuously denying oneself, just to attune towards these standards of normality. That which I understand all too well after all of these years on my isolation, time when I've grown up to be a young adult which in turn would become something I could only dream in this far back of past.
Yeah, I wanted to be an adventurer so much.
And then I realized, within these multitude of shortcomings that I had. I know all too well that I could have bigger dreams and delusions that were much greater than everyone else I know. That to be said, I can't do things worth doing other than dreaming all day about unrealistic scenarios that probably won't happen in my life, ever. But it all struck me down about the power of dreams, because of some of the wildest things I wished actually happens few months to few years in the future. And the rest of my wishes would probably happen sooner or later, it's just only a matter of time really.
At the second thought, what kind of things that definitely inspire me on becoming an adventurer...let's see...
Basically, being an adventurer means you would be able to traverse beyond the scopes that would be considered as acceptable by the society in general. And thus it will made yourselves become free from most of the bounds given in this universe. That's right, being an adventurer means that you will have the chance of a lifetime to obtain your glorious freedom!
Furthermore, it enables you to make out with random corpses you found along the forest path without anyone finding out! That would be a much different issue when you're desperate for it while still being a normal villager, sneaking into a place of burial to dug out some corpse and then make out with it. Well at least in the forest path the corpses will still be flesh without any embalming substances that would be very hazardous to health. And to sum it up, being an adventurer makes it easy to find a random corpse rather than being caught off by the guards and then be sentenced to prison!
It would enable you the right to spy on fairies, with the alibi of gathering information about the current happenings of this magical world, because adventurers would have the reason to do so. Because if you're just a normal townspeople, you would be labeled as a pedophile right away, which isn't a good thing because the people in Avalon generally hates pedophiles that continually aiming for their cute elven sons and daughters.
Also, you could run along with a half-naked werewolf, wearing matching boxers down the celestial beaches. Which signals the intense bonding of manliness, at least it's much better than hanging out with emo vampires of course, but I think emo vampires are especially a good company since well...they're very popular with girls, and he probably had so many girlfriends, it could be even much more than the times I had been kicked out from school plus the times I've been grounded because I'm so stupid.
There's also a lot of other benefits including being freed from the obligation of paying taxes, the liberty of traveling around countries and nations in general without having to carry out bothersome passports, visa or any other things that took damn complex procedures to make, just simply state that you're an adventurer, and they will let you in. Regardless of the country being at the state of peace or war, and even while they're at war, you could also said that you also work out as a mercenary, they would appreciate extra help, in addition of being able to make extra dough on top of that!
It also allows you the liberty to break in the random houses of people in town, without them being suspicious of you suddenly entering their house. Then you would be free to break every single thing inside the house for finding a certain item, and opening a random treasure chest, taking away the item while still could be getting away with it! You could also earn money with the most absurd way possible by randomly smacking the townspeople to get a certain amount of gold. Be sure to turn the weapons' hostility to off, and there leaves you all day without having to worry about having a stable job!
Of course I know a lot about this since I played a lot of RPG games as a kid, and until now RPG games has been my favorite, it allows me to have a more philosophical outlook about live in general by itself. And by that I had become a dreamer with a bright future as an adventurer.
Additional note : these are the excerpt of the old notes from the Elder which could be found taking a dump naked in front of the greenhouse during the present time. It's originally found in notebooks that looks pretty fresh as it was in the lapse of time spanning about 50 years since it's first written. The elder went as an adventurer in the age of 14, the next year after he was dropped out from school for the umpteenth time, and he still wrote on his notebooks during the time. He was married by the age of 17 and got about 3 children, one of them would be Stella's father. The elder's current age is 62 years old, and Stella's currently 22 years old, go figure the approximation of the rest.
By the way, these documents were recently named as Elder Scrolls, because it sounds cool and it belongs to the Elder.
