SEND[Marisoll] I like cookies. :)

You rub a crystal amulet. The distant thoughts in your mind feel stronger.

SEND[Sawenna] I wouldn't want to be the one responsible for anything that happened to the cookies!

You focus on projecting your thoughts... Round time: 5 seconds.

You hear the faint thoughts of You echo in your mind: "There are plenty of cookies in the Wehnimer's Garden! We were trying a cookie sacrifice to Khaladon and he did not show! I report he did not show! The cookies are now on a free for all to everyone!"

Elthors cackles!

A bolt of lightning streaks down from the sky and strikes Elthors! ... 40 points of damage! Massive electrical shock turns head into shark bait. Time to feed the fish.

* Elthors drops dead at your feet!

A tremendous crack of thunder follows instantly!

* Elthors just bit the dust!

You exclaim, "ack!"

Suddenly you have the strangest feeling that you are being watched. The feeling fades as quickly as it came.

You fling yourself on the body of Elthors, wailing mournfully.

A cloud of dense silvery fog suddenly appears. The fog quickly dissipates to reveal Kaitlen.

A bolt of lightning streaks down from the sky and strikes you! ... 50 points of damage! Horrifying electrical shock converts head into blood-stained glass. Death is a step up. The silvery luminescence fades from around you. You come back into focus. The buzz of thoughts in your mind subsides.

It seems you have died, my friend. Although you cannot do anything, you are keenly aware of what is going on around you...

You mentally give a sigh of relief as you remember that the Goddess Lorminstra owes you a favor.

...departing in 10 mins...

A tremendous crack of thunder follows instantly!

* Nyvea just bit the dust!

Kaitlen asks, "the cookie eat ya?"

You hear the ghostly voice of Elthors say in Sylvankind, "he didnt like our song"

The spirit of Elthors sighs softly, raising the hairs on the back of your neck.

You exclaim, "oh no! All we were doing was singing him a cookie song!"

You exclaim, "And all these cookies were here just for him!"

You hear the ghostly voice of Elthors say, "yeah we wanted him to come see us"

The spirit of Elthors begins to wail eerily.

Kaitlen loses her intense expression.

Kaitlen cackles!

Khaladon whispers, "Heh, and dont use report too often, its for emergencies"

You laugh, the sepulchral sound echoing through the room.

Kaitlen removes a white flask from in her spidersilk cloak.

Kaitlen forces your mouth open, and pours in a small amount from her white flask. You feel a tingle on your soul, as if a powerful hand is gently cradling it. (Thy soul is bound to thy body for an extra 23 minutes.)

Kaitlen says, "ero"

You hear the ghostly voice of Elthors say, "now what we supposed to do, dead people cant eat cookies"

Kaitlen drops a white flask.

The spirit of Elthors sighs softly, raising the hairs on the back of your neck.

You sigh softly, your ghostly voice a mere breath on the wind.

You say, "we can let the ants get them, i just wanted him to have the cookies. Thought we were being nice"

Skarne just arrived.

Kaitlen just gave Skarne a smooch.

Skarne grins.

You see a wave of energy emanate from Skarne toward Elthors. It coalesces around his body and then seeps in, leaving a glow around the body.

You begin to wail, your spirit lamenting your current state.

Kaitlen says, "that works"

You take a deep breath, and look around with renewed vigor. It is good to be alive, and an adventurer in this land.

You hear the ghostly voice of Elthors say, "yeah I was hoping we could see em eat"

Throg just arrived.

Your surroundings blur for a moment . . .

[Wehnimer's, Erebor Square] The dome of a large temple rises before you. The circular building is surrounded by marble porticos and teak columns. A promenade leads to two pillars, through which you can peer into the inner sanctum. You observe priests, acolytes, monks and worshippers engaged in various rituals of devotion. A locked almsbox is securely bolted to an iron pole alongside the pillars. You also see a wrought-iron gate and the Griffin sword which is embedded to its hilt in a glowing white stone. Also here: Lady Kaitlen, the body of Elthors who is lying down, Skarne Obvious paths: south, east, west.

Kaitlen says, "weeeee"
