Burning Lessons
Leyan, day 13 of the month Fashanos in the year 5102

[Magical Burrow, Dervish Park]
The snow and ice which dominate Icemule Trace stop abruptly at the fenceline of the park. In their place sits a wide open greensward full of laughing children running everywhere. A strange glow hangs about the area, an odd magical field, slightly shimmering, its outer edge falling right at the snowline. A tall statue comprised of ten wizened halflings in enruned robes stands majestically at the center of the field. You also see a neat beige sash, a dusty red bandana, a simple wooden strongbox, a smooth bone wand, a smooth bone wand, a hand-carved felwood manor, a low mithril gate, a splendid colorful tiled home, a plain residence and an abandoned hall.
Also here: Lady Noonee
Obvious paths: north, west.

You pick up a smooth bone wand.
You put a smooth bone wand in your white leather satchel.

You pick up a simple wooden strongbox.
You put a simple wooden strongbox in your spidersilk greatcloak.

Your stomach burns with an intense fire for a moment, before it gradually fades.

You blink.

You belt out, "Elymir?"

Noonee cocks her head at you.

Noonee asks, "The lich?"

You nod.

(Iscikella holds her stomach.)

You say, "My stomach."

Noonee furrows her brow.

Noonee says, "doesn't sound good."

Noonee removes a snowflake zircon from in her spidersilk cloak. Noonee offers you a snowflake zircon. Enter ACCEPT to accept the offer or DECLINE to decline it. The offer will expire in 30 seconds.
You accept Noonee's offer and are now holding a snowflake zircon.
You put a snowflake zircon in your spidersilk greatcloak.

Iscikella smiles wanely

You say, "doesn't feel so good."

Tattered remains blow in on the wind before they reform into that of a lich.

Elymir leans on his staff.

You blink.

Noonee says, "Uh-oh."

Noonee glances at Elymir.

You say, "Ye are about early, lich."

You blink at Elymir.

Elymir says, "It wouldn't suit you to be calling my name into the night..."

Elymir says, "You don't know what will answer."

You say, "Well, my stomach..."

You glance at Elymir.

You say, "I figured ye were about anyway."

You ask, "Weren't ye?"

Elymir grins slowly.

(Iscikella holds her stomach a moment.)

Noonee scratches her head.

You ask, "Lich?"

Noonee says, "I don't like this none."

(Noonee bites her lip nervously.)

You glance at Noonee.

You belt out, "Lich?"

You sense Kadesha looking in on you.
A cloud of dense silvery fog suddenly appears. The fog quickly dissipates to reveal Kadesha.

You hear the voice of Elymir ask, "Why do you bellow so?"

Kadesha snarls menacingly!

You hear the voice of Elymir say, "And the daring little cleric comes to the rescue..."

You say, "Only because I wonder what ye are doing... Why is my stomach burning."

Elymir shimmers into view.

Noonee ducks her head.

You glance at Kadesha.

Kadesha asks, "ye nae learn well yet that Lorminstra is above ye lich?"

Elymir says, "Oh, you know why your stomach is burning."

Elymir glances at Kadesha.

(Iscikella rubs her stomach uncomfortably.)

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Elymir says, "Silence, dwarf, lest I toss you into the Rift... again."

Kadesha glances at Elymir.

Elymir leans on his staff.

You ask, "Yer way of warning ye are about, Elymir?"

Elymir says, "Perhaps..."

Kadesha traces the lines of her key-shaped mark.

Elymir asks, "Perhaps not, but that's the matter of it all isn't it?"

Kadesha lifts her Lorminstra symbol reverently to her lips, and its image of a golden key on a field of black pulses for a moment with a pale glow.

Noonee asks, "Why do I get the feeling a lich in the early morning is not a good sign?"

You cock your head at Elymir.

Kadesha says, "Elymir, sir lich, ye be late for an appointment"

Elymir says, "As are you."

The lich gestures at Kadesha. Kadesha begins to flicker and fade, a look of agony etched upon her face. A moment later, she simply winks out of sight.

You blink.

Elymir says, "Now then..."

Noonee exclaims, "Leya! this really isn't good!"

Noonee gawks at Elymir.

Elymir grins.

(Iscikella places a hand lightly on Noonee's arm.)

Elymir asks, "Why do you come here, child, to this statue of old?"

(Iscikella glances at the statue.)

You say, "I admit to being drawn here."

You say, "Though I am not sure why."

Noonee says, "That's not good either."

Noonee looks over at you and shakes her head.

Noonee frowns.

Elymir gazes at you with hollow eyes and simply nods.

You glance at Elymir.

Elymir says, "Yes, I would assume you would."

You sense Kadesha looking in on you.
A cloud of dense silvery fog suddenly appears. The fog quickly dissipates to reveal Kadesha.

You ask, "Do ye draw me here, lich? Or what is in me rather?"

Kadesha leans on her falchion.

Noonee just tried to pull Kadesha towards her!

Noonee exclaims, "Kade! Good thing!"

Elymir says, "Me? I draw you not to here, but what is in you... perhaps."

You ask, "And isn't what is in me of ye?"

You furrow your brow, probably adding a wrinkle or two in the process.

Elymir says, "Still haven't learned the lessons, child..."

Kadesha smiles at Noonee.

Elymir shakes his head, clucking his tongue.

You bite your lip.

You say, "Seems there are many of them."

Noonee glances at you.

Elymir says, "You'll need to be quicker about that if you have even the smallest spark of a chance to stop us."

You stare at Elymir.

Kadesha raises an eyebrow in Elymir's direction.

Elymir simply grins, the flesh over his face stretching grotesquely.

You say, "Ye don't think we can, but ye must know I am more stubborn than that."

Noonee mutters something about stubborn-all-right...

Elymir says, "I know many things, but that's why I'm as I am."

You say, "A lich."

Iscikella smiles oddly.

Kadesha says, "a pawn of Luukos? musta learned some what ya know a bit too late"

As the lich points at Kadesha, mystical energy suddenly envelopes her.
Kadesha is stunned!

Noonee just tried to pull Kadesha towards her!

Noonee gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Noonee gestures at Kadesha.
The glazed look leaves Kadesha.

Kadesha says, "ye but a puppet, ain ye Elymir"

Elymir says, "Such people you surround yourself with, child."

Noonee cowers away from Elymir!

Kadesha lifts her Lorminstra symbol reverently to her lips, and its image of a golden key on a field of black pulses for a moment with a pale glow.

You say, "And who do ye think I should surround myself with? Enlighten me. I am curious."

You cock your head at Elymir.

Kadesha asks, "ye ever regret servin the snake?"

Kadesha peers quizzically at Elymir.

Kadesha asks, "I mean, who'd wanna be a lich?"

Kadesha stares off into space.

You say, "Uh, Kade..."

Elymir leans over and whispers quietly to Kadesha, and as he moves back he lets out a howling laughter.

You say, "I think being buried alive had something to do with that."

You shudder.

Kadesha says, "he served Luukos an is now a pawn of Luukos"

(Noonee steps back from the lich.)

You say, "Ye said the other night, ye enjoyed yer powers..."

Elymir says, "Such... thoughts. Almost makes me tingly."

Elymir simply grins, the flesh over his face stretching grotesquely.

Kadesha glares at Elymir.

You blink.

Noonee gawks at Elymir.

Noonee asks, "Ye get excited by Luukos?"

Noonee slaps herself on the forehead.

Noonee says, "Shouldn't ask that."

You glance at Noonee.

As the lich points at Noonee, mystical energy suddenly envelopes her.

Noonee winces.

Kadesha says, "well, Ivas gets excited by Luukos, guess someone could"

Noonee says, "Knew I shouldn't ask that."

Noonee sways back and forth.

Elymir says, "The time is close at hand, anyhow. We'll have the Staff, and then the town..."

Kadesha rubs Noonee gently.

You look at Noonee and shake your head.

Elymir says, "And then poor, dear old Thurfel."

Kadesha asks, "ya still don have it eh?"

You glare at Elymir.

You exclaim, "Ye won't have any of that!"

Elymir says, "Our powers grow as we await for the right moment."

You stare at Elymir.

Kadesha says, "like I tol ya afore, ya can have a staff an we will have Liabo"

You say, "By draining the possessed."

You ask, "Is that how they grow?"

Elymir says, "Such blind faith, almost sickening to see people fall on bended knee to deaf Gods."

Elymir shakes his head.

You ask, "And yer master... he is not also so deaf?"

You squint at Elymir.

Kadesha says, "She was nae deaf, seems that light shrunk ya back last week"

Kadesha says, "ye fear Lorminstra, don ye"

Elymir whispers, "We don't rely upon... him."

Kadesha stares at Elymir.

You blink at Elymir.

Kadesha says, "I don expect ye ta fear me, I ain no fool, but ye fear her"

Elymir says, "Parlor tricks, Dwarf, a magician could do better with little sticks."

You ask, "Yer power is... of darkness of the world then, lich?"

Kadesha says, "well the trick sure made ya jump back"

You cock your head at Elymir.

Kadesha smirks.

Noonee says, "I don't want to know."

Noonee shakes her head.

Noonee says, "His power seems a bit... overmatching for me."

Kadesha says, "I pray Lorminstra might come show ye more tricks"

Noonee shudders.

Elymir says, "Of darkness... of light... of death... of life... so many facets of a simple little world that will soon be crushed beneath our small fingertips."

Kadesha says, "I ain stakin his power again mine, but Hers"

(Iscikella listens closely to Elymir.)

Kadesha says, "ye know ye are beneath the gods, in fact if ya anger Luukos, reckon hed jes consume ya instead"

Kadesha glowers darkly at Elymir.

You ask, "And why do ye want to crush it, if its facets give ye power?"

You cock your head at Elymir.

Elymir asks, "Does it?"

Elymir raises an eyebrow in your direction.

Elymir lets out a howling laughter.

You furrow your brow, probably adding a wrinkle or two in the process.

You say, "Ye seek to confuse, lich."

Elymir says, "You've much to learn, child... so much to learn, and so little time before you lie next to your precious Thurfel."

The lich fades from your vision, nothing left of it but a few tattered bits of decaying cloth.

You belt out, "Lich!"

Kadesha yells, "good riddance"

You flail your arms about.

You exclaim, "Ye won't have Thurfel, lich!"

You exclaim, "Ye haven't the power!"

Kadesha coughs.

You raise your fist in a display of defiance.

A voice rises up next to your ear, "Oh, but we will have."

You shiver.

Kadesha says, "hrmm"

Kadesha sits down.

Kadesha gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Kadesha gestures.
There is a bright flash and a small lump of white substance appears in the air and falls to the ground.

(Iscikella shakes her head defiantly.)

Kadesha picks up some manna bread.
Kadesha takes a bite of her manna bread.
Kadesha takes a bite of her manna bread.

You say, "Ye won't."

Kadesha takes a bite of her manna bread.

You fold your arms over your chest.

A brisk wind whips through the park, and quickly leaves with a howling laughter.

You shiver.

Noonee faces Kadesha, closes her eyes and begins chanting. Suddenly, a small bolt of energy arcs between them!
Noonee opens her eyes, looking slightly drained.

You shiver.

Kadesha says, "guess he ran afore Lorminstra scare em off again"

Kadesha faces Noonee, closes her eyes and begins chanting. Suddenly, a small bolt of energy arcs between them!
Kadesha opens her eyes, looking slightly drained.

You say, "He always makes me shiver."

Kadesha says, "got plenty mana"

You shiver.

Kadesha says, "jes a lil drained"

Kadesha stares off into space.

Kadesha says, "a lot drained actually"

Noonee gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Noonee gestures at Kadesha.
A brilliant shaft of pure white light suddenly surrounds Kadesha.

Kadesha stares off into space.

Noonee says, "Now not."

Kadesha gazes in awe at the bread in her hand.

You say, "And my stomach..."

Kadesha says, "ye didn need do that"

(Iscikella rubs her stomach.)

Kadesha just hugged Noonee.

You say, "It burns..."

You ask, "What does he mean?"

You flail your arms about.

Kadesha sighs.

Kadesha asks, "what he mean about what?"

Noonee smiles at Kadesha.

You say, "About... where his power comes from."

You say, "He told me they do not rely solely on Amasalen."

Kadesha asks, "well where ya think it come from?"

You say, "he whispered to me."

Kadesha says, "was servants of Luukos in life"

You say, "We do not rely on him," he said."

Kadesha says, "of course, such would never lie"

Kadesha gives you a little prod between the shoulder blades.

You furrow your brow, probably adding a wrinkle or two in the process.

You ask, "And what does he mean I have much to learn if I am to have even a small chance to defeat them?"

You flail your arms about.

You say, "There is much to learn indeed."

You say, "He said he knew I was drawn here."

Kadesha says, "Isci, there is always much to learn"

Kadesha asks, "but ye want hm fer a teacher?"

You shake your head.

You say, "Isn't that..."

You say, "Is just... I feel I am missing something."

You say, "Something I should not be missing."

Kadesha exclaims, "ye gotta know theyd be fulla lies!"

Kadesha just tried to pull you towards her!

Noonee cocks her head.

Kadesha says, "ye are, ye trust in Thurfel an some vile evil staff instead a trustin Liabo"

Kadesha says, "dat what ya missin"

Kadesha sighs sadly.

You glance at Kadesha.

You say, "Kadesha, my understanding of things is different."

You say, "I just don't believe a miracle from the sky will save us."

Kadesha asks, "ye can love Thurfel, but why trust in the staff?"

You say, "I think we have to do it."

Kadesha asks, "well what ya think the staffs power come from? so ya jes trustin' in Amasalen?"

You say, "I don't know what the staff can or cannot so."

Kadesha frowns.

You say, "I never said I did."

You say, "But since so many seem to need it, must surely be much it does."

Kadesha says, "but ye wait for Thurfel, who owes Amaslen, or wait for him ta get the staff of Amasalen"

You say, "I trust that Thurfel knows these liches well enough to destroy them."

Kadesha says, "so ye are trustin in miracles, only ye look ta Amasalen"

Kadesha sighs.

You say, "I trust he understands their magicks."

Kadesha flails her arms about.

A fiery sensation tingles your insides until it blossoms into a full explosion of intense pain! What feels like burning embers slowly works its way down your intestines until the feeling simply fades away.

Kadesha exclaims, "they are undead Isci!"

You gasp.

(Iscikella doubles over.)

You say, "My stomach."

(Iscikella holds her stomach)

Kadesha says, "whatever magic they had in life ain whats there now"

Noonee rubs you gently.

Noonee asks, "What is happening to ye?"

You say, "Is burning."

You kneel down.

(Iscikella doubles over.)

(Iscikella breathes slowly as the pain subsides.)

Kadesha says, "Amasalen or Luukos animates them, their bloody undead, what magic they had in life died when they did"

Kadesha sighs.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Kadesha put some manna bread in her hooded robe.

You say, "It feels like burning embers inside me."

You shudder.

Kadesha frowns.

Noonee tries to pull you to your feet, but you are too heavy.

Noonee exclaims, "I don't like that!"

Noonee tries to pull you to your feet, but you are too heavy.

You say, "Let me stay here a while, sis."

(Iscikella holds her stomach.)

Kadesha asks, "wan some bread?"

You slowly and deliberately empty your filled lungs.

Kadesha removes some manna bread from in her hooded robe.

You shake your head.

Kadesha put some manna bread in her hooded robe.

You say, "I'm going to sleep a little I think"

You pant.

You say, "It... makes me so weak."

You say, "the pain."

Kadesha says, "Isci I sorry if I upset ya but dern, ya have seen Liabo manifest an say ya ain believin in miracles"

Kadesha says, "yet ye wait for a miracle from Thurfel"

You glance at Kadesha.

Kadesha says, "don make sense"

You say, "I have seen Lumnis there to comfort me."

Kadesha sighs.

You say, "I called out for Her to save Aran."

You say, "She didn't."

Kadesha says, "ye seen the light of Lorminstra drive him back"

You say, "She knows we have to do this ourselves."

Kadesha says, "we, ourselves"

A voice rises up next to your ear, "Alone... simply all alone."

You say, "She will guide, she will counsel and she will comfort."

Kadesha says, "but yas trustin in Thurfel"

You shiver.

You exclaim, "Lich, stop!"

Kadesha says, "maybe thruough faith the answer reveaeld"

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

Kadesha says, "ye ask Elymir ta explain"

Kadesha says, "ye ask Thurfel"

Kadesha says, "ye nae ask Lumnis"

Kadesha frowns.

You say, "Am not alone, lich."

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

Kadesha rubs you gently.

Kadesha moves to a kneeling position.

Noonee kneels down.

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

Kadesha continues to beseech the gods for mercy and guidance.

Noonee says, "I always be around, sis."

The voice says, almost with a soft, and harsh tone, "Blind faith upon a bended knee... nothing more."

Noonee says, "I promise."

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

You weep softly, quiet tears falling from your eyes.

You say, "Faith isn't blind, lich, but I know can't depend on such to make things right."

You say, "I know."

Kadesha sighs exhasperated.

Noonee hugs you.

Kadesha asks, "what DO ye depend on?"

Kadesha peers quizzically at you.

You say, "Knowledge."

You stare at Kadesha.

You say, "Knowledge is what must be used, Kadesha."

Kadesha asks, "and who do ye ask for knowledge?"

You say, "Even in faith."

You say, "I seek knowledge."

You say, "One doesn't ask for it."

Kadesha asks, "an from whom do ye seek it?"

You say, "It isn't something handed over on a platter."

You say, "One must seek it from all things in life."

You say, "From each encounter."

You say, "From each experience."

You say, "It isn't a gift given."

Kadesha asks, "even somethin what lies? somethin give ya false information?"

You say, "It is earned."

Kadesha peers quizzically at you.

You say, "Even lies have grains of truth."

Kadesha says, "well wisdom, is usin the knowledge ya got"

Kadesha says, "an ya ought have knowledge who animates buncha undead liches"

You say, "Kadesha, if we do not seek knowledge, there will never be wisdom."

You say, "I am trying to understand all of this."

Kadesha says, "wisdom, is knowin how ta use knowledge, Isci"

You say, "One cannot use what one does not have."

You say, "That is the point."

Noonee exclaims, "Sis, ye are too philosophical for me!"

Noonee flails her arms about.

Kadesha says, "but ya ain usin the knowledge you DO have wisely, ya seek from a lich"

Noonee exclaims, "I just don't want them hurting ye!"

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

Kadesha asks, "why would ya seek truth from the lord of lies?"

Kadesha says, "any knowledge he give gonna lead ya wrong"

You say, "I am only listening to what he says. And from the listening, I must glean what are the grains of truth."

A voice rises up next to your ear, "Knowledge is knowing you can't win... Wisdom is giving up before you're utterly destroyed."

A faint laughter peals through the park.

You blink.

You tilt your head up.

You belt out, "Lich! we will win!"

Kadesha says, "hes only lyin when his lips be movin"

You belt out, "Or we will make sure at least ye don't!"

Kadesha says, "Dam I love ya Isci but I do wish yed quit muckitymuckin in darkness"

Tendrils of black energy snake along the surface of the statue.

Kadesha glowers.

Kadesha sniffs.

You belt out, "And if giving up is wisdom... guess I am not wise!"

(Iscikella stares at the statue.)

You say, "For I will never give up, lich."

Kadesha says, "smells snake"

A voice rises up next to your ear, "No, you're not child. And for your foolishness, a price will be paid, in due time."

You shiver.

Kadesha says, "he shrunk back before from Lorminstra's light"

(Noonee glances at the tendrils.)

Noonee says, "I don't like those tendrils."

Kadesha continues to beseech the gods for mercy and guidance.

Kadesha lifts her Lorminstra symbol reverently to her lips, and its image of a golden key on a field of black pulses for a moment with a pale glow.

You belt out, "A price is always paid, lich. For everything we do."

Kadesha says, "lich be payin now"

You belt out, "Ye had to pay a price... for betraying IceMule, did ye not?"

(Iscikella watches the statue closely.)

Kadesha asks, "Elymir, how will ya master regard ya when ya fail?"

Kadesha says, "ye be lucky ta get past the gates where ya belong"

Kadesha says, "they be the ones what are desperate, Isci, they serve a cruel master"

(Iscikella tilts her head at the statue.)

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

(Noonee tries to turn Iscikella's head.)

You watch as the black energy continues to snake along the statue. Suddenly, and before you can react, the energy shoots off the statue and strikes you! You're thrown back against the ground, and paralyzed!

Noonee says, "Don't look at that thing."

Kadesha glowers.

Wince
That is impossible at the moment.

Noonee gasps.

Noonee exclaims, "Oh no!"

Kadesha continues to beseech the gods for mercy and guidance.

You say, "Can't move."

You say, "Paralyzed."

Noonee glances at you and begins to wail!

Kadesha says, "dear Lorminstra, might ye show yer mercy and grace yet again"

Kadesha lifts her Lorminstra symbol reverently to her lips, and its image of a golden key on a field of black pulses for a moment with a pale glow.

(Noonee shakes her fist at the statue, then pulls it back a bit nervously.)

Noonee exclaims, "Don't be hurting her!"

Shudder
You don't seem to be able to move to do that.

Kadesha says, "Dear Lorninstra I pray ye cover Isci with yer protection, guard her body an soul"

Kadesha continues to beseech the gods for mercy and guidance.

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Iscikella who is surrounded by a soft white light.

(Noonee pushes the hair off Iscikella's forehead.)

sit
You don't seem to be able to move to do that.

Sigh
You don't seem to be able to move to do that.

A voice rises up from the snow around Iscikella, "You will submit to us, or you will be tossed aside like ragdolls as she."

Noonee says, "I don't like ragdolls."

Noonee wails!

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

Noonee exclaims, "Ye hurt her!"

The black energy crackles and snakes along your body.

Kadesha yells, "ye fear failure, don ye Elymir, ye thought yad have yer bloody staff by now"

Kadesha rubs you gently.

You say, "That... tingles... hurts."

A wave of power flows out of Kadesha and toward Iscikella who is surrounded by a soft white light.

You ask, "What are ye doing, Elymir?"

The black energy gathers atop Iscikella and then shoots towards Kadesha, striking her to the ground!

You say, "My muscles... hurt."

Noonee wails!

Noonee just tried to pull Kadesha towards her!

Noonee exclaims, "Ye are hurting her too!"

Kadesha says, "Lorminstra can still hear me"

You sit up.

You stand back up.

You pant.
You pant.

(Iscikella rubs her arms.)

Kadesha asks, "ye hurtin right now Isci?"

The black energy begins to cover Kadesha's mouth and nose, as if it was going to suffocate her.

You fall over. Clumsy oaf!

Noonee gasps.

Noonee exclaims, "Oh!"

Noonee just tried to pull Kadesha towards her!

Kadesha asks, "ye hurtin right now Isci?"

Noonee asks, "Ye allright?"

You nod.

You say, "Yes."

Kadesha says, "lil suffocatin"

Kadesha says, "well least got em off ye"

Noonee gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Noonee gestures at Kadesha.
Kadesha begins to breathe more deeply.

Kadesha says, "unposion plese"

Noonee gestures and utters a phrase of magic.
Noonee gestures at Kadesha.
Kadesha's skin takes on a more pinkish tint.

Kadesha says, "tanks"

Noonee rubs you gently.

Noonee gazes in awe at you.

Noonee says, "She don't look so good."

Kadesha says, "Lorminstra can still hear, and nae matter what ye do, she is with me"

You say, "I'm... allright."

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

Kadesha says, "ye scared Elymir, scared what yer master do when ye fail"

A voice rises up from the snow around Kadesha, "We fear nothing."

A voice rises up from the snow around Kadesha, "It is you who should be scared."

Kadesha says, "when ya got nothin, nothin left ta loose"

You blink.

Kadesha says, "yer late fer a date with the Ebon gate, lich"

* Kadesha drops dead at your feet!

You ask, "Is it wise to fear nothing, Elymir?"

Noonee gasps.

Noonee flings herself on the body of Kadesha, wailing mournfully.

Noonee gestures at Kadesha.
A luminescent web briefly forms around Kadesha, then fades into the body.

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

Noonee exclaims, "Why ye hurt them, lich!"

The black energy snakes off Kadesha, and seeps back into the ground.

Noonee flails her arms about.

You hear the ghostly voice of Kadesha say, "he fears alot"

You hear the ghostly voice of Kadesha say, "look what he gets fer failure"

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!
Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

You hear the ghostly voice of Kadesha say, "consumed"

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

(Iscikella rises to her knees slowly.)

You move to a kneeling position.

Noonee exclaims, "Sis, help her!"

Noonee just tried to pull you towards her!

You say, "I try."

You nod to Noonee.

You take a quick appraisal of Kadesha and find that she has snapped bones and serious bleeding from the neck, a completely severed right arm, a completely severed left arm, a fractured and bleeding right leg, a fractured and bleeding left leg, a completely severed right hand, a completely severed left hand, deep gashes and serious bleeding from her chest, deep gashes and serious bleeding from her abdominal area, deep gashes and serious bleeding from her back, a blinded right eye, a blinded left eye, a case of uncontrollable convulsions, and severe head trauma and bleeding from the ears.
