Item - The Legend of the __________ (adj) __________ (n)

Series: Sorcerer's Apprentice
Contained In: Sorcerer's Apprentice #13 (Magazine)
Author: Danforth, Elizabeth (Liz) T.
castiglione's Thoughts: This adventure is a tongue-in-cheek romp. The reader is asked to compile a list of 20 nouns, 10 plural nouns, 15 adjectives, five of the usual T & T attributes (ST, LK, IQ, DEX, CON, CHR and SPD), about 20-30 numbers and five proper names. At this point, the meaning of the adventure's title should become clear. The adventure's paragraphs don't tell you that you've run into two orcs brandishing broadswords... instead, they'll say you've run into __________ (#) __________ (pl. n) brandishing __________ (pl. n) each with a monster rating of __________ (#), which means you fill in the first blank with the first number on your list of numbers, the next blank with the first plural noun on your list, the next blank with the NEXT plural blank, etc. This results in rather bizarre situations like the adventurer getting attacked by grand pianos armed with cotton balls who could be more lethal than the best swordsmen of the land!
