Die another day
Your hero will endeavor to survive all day today. In order to progress in this mini-quest, your hero must become adept at hiding from monsters unseen or, if seen, syncope, fainting, breathing shallowly, holding their breath, and playing dead. They will more than likely need to be well-versed in bandages, ointments, salves, and potions in order to keep them going until they get back to town for healing.
Very few heroes chronicle the artifacts obtained in this quest and even fewer record its completion in their diaries. It is assumed that most heroes are unable to successfully complete it — or if they do manage to do so, are too afraid this will be an ongoing expectation that everyone has of them for the future encounters with monsters, so they opt to conveniently leave it out.
