Islands in a sea of Stink
« on: June 27, 2005, 01:08:21 PM »
After Zurn regains his strength from the spider venom and is able to walk on his own he continues to look around. Not having ever been in a swamp, he finds that it has a wild beauty but is eerily silent.

He continues to map the parties way through this labyrynth of impending doom so that they can retrace their steps. It's a good thing that he does map it because from the look of things there have already been a few poor souls that have gotten lost. It turned out to be their doom.

He remembers back to having visited Eastwold and sees a similar resemblance between the trails that go from swamp island to swamp island and the halls that go from chamber to chamber in the underground. The difference is that the underground chambers didn't stink. Here the stink is way of life.

It seems odd that with all of the decay around here that anything could live here...Bog Witch or not.

Towards the end of the day and having walked in what seems to be circles the party rests at another island. While making camp Zurn approaches Valen and says, "Valen, thanka for helpin' to carry me when I was weak. I guess we all have ta look afta each otha now more'n ever. I was wonderin' if'n you felt this swamp to be unnatural in any way. I've never really been to one and it seems ta be crypt quiet. Maybe those 8-leggers ate all of the livin' in here. Whacha think? And speakin' o' those spiders...what's with those carvings? D'y'think that spider may've been Bog wneches pet guardian?"

"Perhaps it is big enough to weather all seasons. One thing I know that is certain, if someone or something is the Master of those spiders, we need to be cautious. If it is not the Bog Witch, or then again, even if it is, it is most likely powerful enough to take us all on." Valen said as he sat on a damp log.

"Weird, feels like we've been sitting on these islands for months heh?"

"Does it seem a wee bit odd ta ya that the spider is out dis early in da season? It's gotta have a cozy home somewhere ta keep warm through da cold, eh? Maybe a burra or a cave er somethin'..."

Valen looks at Zurn, still not used too being asked questions on anything in the outside world.

"I haven't really seen to many swamps in my day, but I haven't sensed anything unnatural about the place. Stinks though." Valen said, making a face as he looked around.

"Seems like these islands have been 'tended', possibly by the spiders, maybe as a way to get prey to stop at easy pick-up points. Pick-up and eat that is." Valen laughed off-handedly.

"Yeah, I would say the only thing strange I've noticed is that there should be more birds and critters. It's a wonder that the very large spider had enough to survive on. As far as the carvings go, who knows, pretty handy with a chisel that spider was." Valen laughed again.
