What would you do if you lived in medieval time? The Old West? Gothic ages? What about the 1700's-1800's?
You must write a story, or even a scene, and create an adventure of some kind. What's the catch? It has to be you. You yourself, the one who's typing, you've got to get down deep inside yourself and wonder what you would do in the face of undeniable adventure.
Not necessarily a historical story, though you can make one, this is more off the question that I believe everyone has. Just how tough are you? Where does your adventurous spirt lead you? And how far are you willing to go?
Ask questions if you're curious!
