And Nothing is Ever as It Seems
Restday, day 1 of the month Eorgaen in the year 5102

[Thurfel's Island]
A very large statue of a very squat halfling has been constructed on the tip of the island. It stands upon a pedestal of polished pink coral, and is made completely from eroded chunks of seaglass. In spite of the odd material used to create the artwork, the piece is quite detailed. You also see a dark grey velvet tent.
Also here: Zademus, Lord Zurrainn who is kneeling, Jestin, Renowned Lady Skyfawn, the body of Elionwey who is lying down, High Lord Valicar, Akashe, Astrall, Madroxal, High Lady Kadesha, Adimiron, Lord Tjaran, Aranrhod, Tzuriz, Sothog
Obvious paths: east, south, northwest

***ADDITIONAL NOTE***
The following was felt twice before Thurfel arrived, once about 20 minutes before and again about 10 minutes before:

The island shudders, the sand rippling underneath your feet. This continues for a moment, then subsides.
***END NOTE***

He appears to be a Halfling.
He appears to be wizened with age. He has blue eyes and pale skin. He has very long, dark brown hair.
He is in good shape.
He is holding a large black ledger in his right hand. He is wearing a rolaren shield, a large black satchel, a large black velvet pillow hat, a gold-threaded silver silk sash, a pair of gold-rimmed spectacles, an ornate crimson robe edged with gold thread, and a small golden crocodile amulet suspended from a thin silver cord.

Mikie acts puzzled.

Kithus melodically says, "Of course the mage is summoning a portal"

Thurfel taps a shimmering crimson portal.

[Vault]
Bloodstained brick walls banded with darkened steel enclose this small chamber. Several torches illuminate the area, the reflections from the firelight flickering off the obsidian altar resting in the center of this barren room. Scattered about the base of the altar are numerous grossly misshapen bones, none even remotely recognizeable.
Also here: Dissonance, Coriana, Alyxandrah

You whisper quietly to Trentas, "And where is Thurfel?"

Aranrhod asks, "Speaking of Thurfel...where did he go?"

Jacinto says, "Stuck in a room with a lich."

Trentas scowls at you.

Iscikella's senses heighten with the former eerie feeling of premonition, but it's cause is difficult to determine. The anxiety it causes is just as difficult to ignore, however.

Iscikella's mind tightens around this information, trying to squeeze the meaning from it, as a strange coldness assails her heart.

Thurfel says, "You are about to witness history"

The circular altar has been crafted from a single large piece of stone. Atop the altar, nine round indentations are spaced equidistant about the perimeter.

Her eyes momentarily glow a deep green hue.

You cock your head at Thurfel.

Iscikella's muscles tense oddly, beyond her realm of control. But the moment passes.

Valicar slides a gold ring off his finger.
Valicar slides an intricate gold and brass ring on his finger.

Turinrond blinks.

Vonalin says, "Okay, he stole the staff. Lynch him."

Volsix says, "Alright that seems like it shouldn't have happened."

Mikie cheerfully says, "dun worry, I trust 'em"

Daelith glances at Sayuri.

Valicar searches around for a moment.

Alyxandrah softly says, "Well...I saw that one coming."

(Kolb watches Thurfel intently.)

Trentas scowls.

You gasp.

Veilorb darkly says, "A witness to history is an important event."

Valicar says, "Seems I cannot leave at all, thurfel."

Kithus melodically asks, "History? A halfling is finally going to do something aside from making tarts right?"

(Volsix wanders over beside Thurfel.)

Ahira says, "Look at those bones"

Sraven moves to stand in front of Valicar.

Alyxandrah softly says, "Valicar, I never thought you were a fool...but now I wonder."

Jestin glances at Valicar.

Ahira says, "This can't be good"

You say, "There is a lich."

Mikie ponders.

Iscikella hears a great living roar inside her head. But whether a scream of triumph or rage, she cannot tell.

Daelith says, "das what I was thinkin"

Thurfel gestures at Valicar

Tomochopa says, "hurray for valicar"

Sraven smirks.

Kinning shifts his weight.

Naessi asks, "Since when is Iscikella a Lornonite?"

Naessi blinks.

You whisper quietly to Alyxandrah, "He doesn't have the staff."

Kenyadaa says, "well I think he's a twit and I'm of Phoen"

Sheka stares off into space.

Kadesha gazes in wonder at her surroundings.

Jacinto asks, "If you're seeking power, Thurfel, why do you not understand him holding the staff?"

Horadell says, "I say give the hobbit his staff back so we can all get out of here."

Naessi says, "None of your foolish business, you are not the flaming leader of Icemule."

Nithili says, "Hes ridding us of liches"

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "What will happen now, my lord?"

Nodyre deeply says, "leopards dun change their spots, Thurfel"

Junis says, "Well, you could always maim him."

Turinrond furrows his brow.

Trentas says, "I must say, being in the same room as fifty folks that smell bad is just not a good way to spend the evening Master."

Thurfel says, "it would appear something is interfering with the ceremony"

Algrus nods to Nodyre.

Sskaar quietly says, "I'm sure the itch was there"

Kithus melodically says, "Ibi dear"

Nodyre deeply says, "I liked ya better with a killer instinct"

Kithus sighs.

Sskaar nods to Nodyre.

Algrus says, "Exactly"

Jacinto says, "Liches are bad....servants of Amasalen are just as bad though."

Valicar says, "well, seeings as the staves have been spirited away from me"

Shaelethe says, "they do if you shave them."

Thurfel removes a twisted serpentine staff from in his dark leather satchel.

Valicar nods to Thurfel.

Roggin smiles at Thurfel.

You ask, "Gavrail?"

Iscikella's heart pounds strangely, painfully.

Aysia says, "Seems to me you're still in question, Thurfel. The Old Thurfel may be the same as the new for all we know."

(Femereff leans back with a skeptical look on her face.)

Ibirewen says, "I think anyone is."

Thurfel says, "I do not know"

Ibirewen nods to Kithus.

Sothog blinks.

Daelith says, "Gavrail is gone"

Kolb asks, "May I ask, what is the staff needed for? Can someone other than Thurfel use it then return it?"

Nodyre glances at Venarr.

Shikel softly says, "That does not help."

Shikel looks over at Venarr and shakes his head.

Aysia asks, "Or do you claim to be a saint?"

Thurfel says, "I must consult my sages to find out what went wrong"

Venarr sighs.

Jarexle cowers away from Venarr!

Kylisie sweetly says, "someone should web Valicar so he can't take the staff again"

Thurfel put a twisted serpentine staff in his dark leather satchel.

Sayuri yawns.

Perigourd whispers, "it looks like a focus of energy"

Roggin mutters something about mayhem...

Sothog mutters under his breath.

Algrus says, "Turn my knife into a waggler's stick."

Thurfel put a blue sapphire crab-capped staff in his dark leather satchel.

You whisper quietly to Perigourd, "I know that. But the staff should not be able to be moved from the altar though, once it is placed."

Valicar nods to Opalina.

Thurfel removes a pearlescent abalone sceptre from in his dark leather satchel.

Jacinto says, "Seize that power, Thurfel."

(Kolb watches Thurfel intently.)

You whisper quietly to Thurfel, "I am confused, my lord."

Thurfel says, "fare thee well ye all"

Mikie cocks her head at Thurfel.

Jestin sighs.

Kinning lunges forth and ambushes an unsuspecting obsidian altar mercilessly but to little effect.

Ibirewen asks, "What?"

Thurfel whispers, "as am I"

Nodyre peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Ahira scratches his head.

Turinrond raises an eyebrow.

You whisper to Trentas, "What did Thurfel mean when he said the broken orb was his? He is not a lich..."

Trentas smiles.

Ahira says, "How confusing"

Daelith asks, "where ye goin?"

Jacinto says, "Off to take it for yourself"

Radom asks, "eh?"

Tiassa peers quizzically at Thurfel.

Sskaar seems puzzled.

Daelith tries to pull Thurfel towards her.

Kadesha squints at Thurfel.

Thurfel waves his abalone sceptre.
Flames and fire explode outward from the sceptre, the heat intense. The raging inferno burns in every direction, then subsides.
