WORK IN PROGRESS
I am writing this from the top of the 100 steps of honor for “She of Countless Names” on the newly created pyramid here in Bletherad. I know tomorrow I have to help the Great Keeper locate some missing books, and on that topic I want to be wrong. I want them to be found by a scholar or wizard simply researching what I am researching – ancient magic. I have been working on a spell that has come to me so that I may mimic the fabled guardian of the Wastelands, As’gharjan, the Minotaur Druid of legend. While I met him once when I was but five years old, and I was told his chosen name of Baalgor was for the land he swore to protect and As’gharjan was for his runestaff, which in your native tongue translates to Twiggyleaf.
I bet you’re mildly wondering why am I shar…
…As’gharjan would never leave the Wastelands, so he wasn’t the Minotaur that came here 200 years ago, right? Well, I am sharing some of the items about my tribe because I want the world to know about us rather than be scattered to the winds of a tornado as Master Aesyl was. Thank you again for putting the silvered skull of Arheleg Hescu in the section on Baalgor to honor my tribe’s librarian and last watcher of its Seed Library.
Even though we just left the party and I think most are headed back since this pyramid is guarded by Master-Sister Caminata, Master Bungo, and Master Burlap. I suspect that they will be sent either Ramen, Phoenixi, and/or a Sphinx to bolster their ranks when we place a piece here. The Sphinx, you had mentioned in your “Acceptance of my Apology” was not present during our rather short visit.
I don’t believe I need to rehash the “terrifying missive” that made us leave the wondrous party you have thrown for us. I saw my “Spellborn Twin” arrive at the party as we were leaving and I am sure he could enjoy the social interaction. You can talk to a walking breathing spell! He is likely more jovial than I am at the moment after facing 17 Ratlings and coming closer to death than I have since a certain mountain range of note. I unleashed upon them what it means to face a “War Wizard” and I am aware several residents saw me in the Harness of Law, wielding Callandor, and calling down a torrent of lighting strikes upon our foes all at the same time!
True, I have no idea what book they are talking about but if this is what the Zealotry has to throw at us then our next encounter may prove dire. Numbers, even in an inferior class of foe, can overwhelm even the strongest opponent. They were well coordinated and had studied us trying to use Master Overkill’s voice to lure us into a trap saying he had escaped the underworld. Fame’s double edge sword is finally coming around to bite us it would seem if our enemies can study us then we should be cautious. Luckily absolutely none of us believed the ruse, though none of us expected a group of 17 assailants. I figure this is the minimum we should expect going to Hades in due course.
What I am not sure about is if the Anubian Troll Twins, Figbit & Lagram, I met in the library on the 5th of Corg when I figured out the existence of a code in the Book of Osiris, saw that display. I am sure they heard 17 simultaneous thunder claps that followed it. I am also certain my friends are thrilled my aim was not off since a number of them were within 10 feet of a blast hitting the Ratling they were facing.
