[WP] You've come to save the princess, but she's not guarded by a dragon - She's guarded by a very aggressive goose.

My grandfather had always advised me not to underestimate an opponent. As you can imagine, following that advice may be difficult when finding a goose in the place of a dragon. A lot of people think that YOLO means that you should do crazy shit because you only live once. Well my cousin jumped on that wagon and he lost an arm. Now when he's pushing the basket at the grocery store he can't talk on the phone, so I am inclined to follow my grandfather's advice and stay on the cautious side.

This goose has got crazy eyes, man. I got goose bumps when we made eye contact. I guess that's why they call them "goose bumps". I'm going to try to avoid any further eye contact if at all possible.

THE PLAN: The castle's only 2 stories tall. It's on a hill called, "Temple Mountain", and as you can see the hill is surrounded by lava. We can't go in through the back entrance because I've heard rumors of black mold and I don't want to mess with that stuff. My buddy Eric said that his buddy Jay broke into this place a couple years ago and stole a gold compass but walked away with a respiratory illness, which paired with his existing asthma conditions really messed him up. Eric is not a completely reliable dude, but YOLO so I'm going to be cautious and just stay away from the back of the castle all together.

The sides of the castle have some open windows but they look like they're about 8 feet high. A fall from that height has a 5% chance of injury and a 1/10,000 chance of paralyzation. I'm not sure how many people have been here before me and I haven't heard of that happening to anyone before so YOLO and I'm staying away from the sides of the castle, too.

I took a little smoke bomb out of my dad's garage before I came here and it will actually make anyone that is near pass out. I'm not quite sure if it will work on a goose though. Let's try that and see what happens.

I throw it into the castle, the goose passes out, I walk up the stairs and find the princess. She is overweight because she hasn't had the ability to go to the gym and exercise. I don't judge her. I can't carry her out but I did bring a wheelchair. I go back downstairs to get it, use the elevator this time, and then wheel this girl out of here to safety. I meet up with Prince Donavan and he pays me 1,500 stones. Woo!
