Arfard the Barbarian
Reldo writes: I present this as a comical tale in the finest tradition of Barbarian humour. Perhaps a little coarse for more refined literary tastes, but a fine example nonetheless.
Arfard the Barbarian - by Samitasmas[edit | edit source]
It's a shiny, good day in the Barbarian village,a settlement in the world of Runescape. It must be a very good day,because[ ] even the coal mining spot isn't crowded.
But the peace breaks when a beer glass flies through a window of the messhall of Barbarian village. -No beer for you,until you pay your loan! the messhall keeper yells. -This place is not good! "loan"... Who cares about loans? Arfard says.Arfard is a normal barbarian... he likes beer a lot,and[ ] he is not very rich. -I care about loans! the messhall keeper yells back.
So Arfard wandered out of the messhall. He didn't have money to pay his loans,and he still wanted some beer,so[ ] he decided to go to look for some.
He decided to go to Varrock,because a traveller had said to him that the Blue moon inn has good beer. When he got to the Blue moon inn,he[ ] suddenly realized that he didn't have any gold pieces left. -Dammit... now where do i get money from,Arfard[ ] muttered. -I can do something for your thirst, a man from a corner said. The man had long gray hair,black[ ] shirt and yellow trousers. -Well,you[ ] want to buy me a beer?Arfard[ ] asked. -I'll buy you as much as you want,if[ ] you go away. You smell like a hobgoblin,the gray-haired man said. -Well,i'll[ ] smell like a black dragon if you buy me a beer.
So the gray-haired man bought Arfard five glasses of beer and sneaked away. When he was at the western bank of Varrock,he muttered to himself: Another task completed,and[ ] he smiled.
Arfard drank some of the beer. It tasted awful. He decided to sell the beers someone. He sold the beers for a thirsty adventurer,and he got fifty gold pieces for the beers. He went back to the Barbarian village,and[ ] paid his loans. Then he took more beer for loan.
