Chapter 12 - Emmisary Of Church (1)
Rudra knew in depth about the quest hence he had previously prepared a warehouse full of ingredients to concot the healing potions.
The Church provided him with 50 gold for the quest but he would make 30 gold saving because of his previous investment.
He bought necessary medical supplies and commissioned the alchemist guild to concot the potions .
As beginer health poitons were easy to concot , he recieved his order within 30 minutes, he spent 10 gold for the commission and 10 more on other food items and supplies.
With only 20 of the allocated 50 gold budget used he was ready to depart to the Village of Thol in the north.
The journey to the Village of Thol was in the fashion that Rudra was all to familiar with ..... how one was actually supposed to travel ..... On a mount!
The church provided him with one of the better horses as a mount for his journey , thanx to which it only took him two hours to reach the village.
Yep even from 500 meters out of the actual village one could smell death all over, The village was earily quiet with sick people everywhere .... there were only a few people walking in the open covering their faces with cloths to not breathe contaminated air.
He made his way into the village amongst the stares of 200 people untill he was stopped by a strong looking warrior.
" Please turn around good sir, this village has experienced a disease outbreak. I implore the sire to vacate the village premises as soon as possible for your own safety." said the man
" I am here on behalf of the Church of Light sire, may i please have an audience with the chief?" Rudra asked politely
Seeing how Rudra was someone sent by the Church to help them , the people were overjoyed . The gazes on him softened quite a bit now.
He was quickly introduced to the village chief Dholka The chief was probably in his mid thirty's his body full of battle scars... He must be a tremendous warrior thought Rudra as he looked at his arm glistening with marks where swords would have cut him.
"So i heard you are from the church?" said Dholka
" Yes the Church sends its aid to the people suffering in Thol" Rudra said and emptied his ring to present all the resources given as aid.

" Thankyou sir respected knight , you delivering these supplies will alleviate a lot of burden on my village."
" Its my duty as the servant of the Godess" Said Rudra
He knew he only needed to act humble as soon the 2nd part of the quest will pop up
"I wonder would sir help us with locating a medical cure for this disease.... although the health potions will help the citizens to get out of critical danger , the infection will still not go... if only there was a cure"
[Emmisary Of Church]( Grade : S ) (2/3 chain quest) : Find a cure for the disease spread in the village
Rewards : +1000 Fame
+ 1000 Reputation with Church of Light
Failure penalty : - 2000 fame
- title Respected Knight
- 1000 reputation with the church
He selected yes
Well one actually needed to collect clues
... do monster hunting .... bring a master potionsmaster a sample of infected blood .... spend time working for the potionmaster in return of his service.... do 3 quests for him and then get the cure for the village illness
But not Rudra
He said " Actually i know quite a bit about diseases, do you mind if i take a look at a patient?"
Rudra lied straight through his teeth
He dint know jack shit about diseases however he knew the formula of the cure.
However to look legit he just used his deepest voice and cooked shit up as he spoke
"Hmm the fever and the texture of the skin..... the taste of the sweat.....hmmmm fungus yes definitely fungus..... paracetamol dolo650 metacin ... Rantac crocin..... Hmmmmmm"
" I got it , mix blueherb grass with curd and feed it to the patients , the infection will be eliminated within 6 hours."
All the villagers were dumbfounded . Blueherb grass was a common grass herb easily available hence quickly the medicine was made and administered to a critical patient.
6 Hours later he was safe and healthy
" Miracle, the godess has blessed us. The respected night is actually a Medicine master"
All the villagers cried and kowtowed towards Rudra including the village chief
" Indeed you are a blessing from Godess herself , thankyou for saving my village".

Whoa whoa whoa !
[Savior of thol village] ( Title) : Any and all village specialities will forever be sold to you for free, You can request them to collect resources you need.You are revered throughout the village and they will fight for your honor.
This title was worth the effort put into solving the quest. Not that he did put effort but the one who did in his 'Previous life' gained lots of valuable resources for his guild using the village Npc and farmers.
Rudra wanted to make an elite Guild of his own hence this village will provide him a lot of strategic and logistic support.
[ Revered medicine master] (Title) : You will be recognised as a master of medicine throughout the nation . You do not need to pay taxes . You have the same status as a Count in the Hazelgroove kingdom.
-50% cost for purchasing herbs from all NPC shops.
Rudra was dumbfounded .. all he did was stupid acting and this is the result ?? Was the Godess of fortune finally favouring him after a lifetime of suffering his previous life?
Thankyou god , If i have ever cursed you for being unfair in my past life i take it all back , You are the best!
Rudra said looking towards the sky.
Well well only one thing left to do
" Chief Dholka, this disease was spread by eating a fungal species such as a mushroom, has your village recently bought an unknown stock of mushrooms?"
" Well there was a merchant who sold Mushrooms at a very low cost hence most of my village people bought it ..... are you saying the merchant caused all this suffering to my village?" Dholka said seething
" Its the most plausible outcome based on the facts we know sir". Said Rudra
" Sir i cannot leave this village being its chief , but can you exact revenge for me" This chief will forever be in your debt if you do
[Emmisary of Church](3/3 Chain quest) : Bring the perpetrator behind the infection outbreak in the city of Thol to justice .
Rewards : ???????
Failure Penalty : -10 levels .
Perfect the script for the third quest progressed normally, he was worried because he used his past life knowledge that maybe the third quest wont trigger but thankfully it did.
But what the hell is that failure penalty
- 10 levels seriously? I might as well restart my account then.
