"Is Stanis home?"
You Are Correct
," says the Magic Mouth. "You have answered our riddle and may enter... The Tower of Illusion! Hahahahahahahahahaha!
" The mouth fades from sight as the double doors open into a mist-filled entrance.
You step into the tower's entrance chamber as the doors swing shut behind you. The mist parts and you are confronted by an ancient red dragon! "Puny humans
," it growls, "prepare to meet your fiery doom!
What do you do?
Hmm... I was really hoping to talk to Stanislaus, not go on his adventure "Tower of Illusion" for characters levels 4-11.
You might be right Dave, Fist of Odin. Perhaps this whole place is not really our home. However, home or not, I am not going to be down with Greg Vrill, no matter what his MO.
Still, I have the feeling that it is
our home. I mean, these guys must be the Knights of Armek running about. And, if you read Vrill's Potion Guild Blog, it seems like they just arrived. No doubt, something weird is going on, as we have these alter-egos running about, but my gut tells me that this is the place.
Anyway, I think that if anyone could have avoided this strange transformation, it's got to be Stanislaus. -I think that we should see if he is on the level.
Then I think that we should kill a lot of Border Collies.
"The Moon, Bitch" now let me in.
Dave, Fist of Odin
I say 'the moon'.
Sure, I'm the fist of Odin, not Loki's fuckin' tounge or anything; sure, I'd rather clobber first and not bother with the asking of questions at all; but you hang with Odin, you learn some wisdom.
Why are we entering the tower? If 'we' are here, maybe this guy's different, too?
And if our others are evil, wouldn't that make Vrill our buddy?
I mean, I'm just asking. I suspect we're not quite 'back', but we're still in that fucking basement mirror dimension thing. Or something. Perhaps we should hook up with Vrill and Mysterious Mr. X or something, and save dragons from beautiful princesses.
But anyway. Dave, Fist of Odin isn't much for starting things, unless it's a 'punch him back first' kind of thing, but we sure as hell will see it through.
The Tower Of Illusion
You flee from Grito proper towards the enormous Tower of Illusion.
On the way over, you pass an old beggar who warns- "Beware! Things ain't what they seem in that there tower! The last adventurers who entered- fools! And ain't been seen comin' out of there!"
The doors are huge and made of oak. As you approach, a Magic Mouth appears and challenges you with a riddle:"My face is the same, yet ever-changing. Sometimes I am full of confidence, sometimes shy. I drive men mad when I gaze upon them fully. What am I?"
If you answer this riddle, you may enter the tower.
Let's Use Our Illusion. Cause Cinders got an Appetite for Destruction
But let's hurry, cause Cinders running short on Patience.
And when he's through, the other Cinder will be Knockin on Heaven's Door.
And Cinder will feel like he's in Paradise City.
I think Axl said it best:
Well I'm a west coast struttin'
One bad mother
Got a rattlesnake suitcase
Under my arm
Said I'm a mean machine
Been drinkin' gasoline
And honey you can make my motor hum
Well I got one chance left
In a nine live cat
I got a dog eat dog sly smile
I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go
I smoke my cigarette with style
An I can tell you honey
You can make my money tonight
To Santa Claus' House!!
You know, that's a really good ability... However, I think that my 3 technically preempted his need for a cool missile dodge.
So Dave, Fist of Odin, suggests that we might not kill our alter-egos. However, It seems like these guys are friends with Vrill. Now, I can't see myself getting along with any Brogg who is down with Vrill. And where are our Zombies?
, it seems like this Brogg might be down with Owlbears
too! That makes me his
No. Although I could live with two Dave, Fist of Odins, I just can't live with another Brogg. Not a Brogg like that, anyway.
Now, although we have the advantage of surprise, I don't think that a front-on attack would be wise... Does anyone like Guns and Roses? Do you remember their awesome album entitled "Use your Illusion"? I say that we quick head over to Stanislaus' tower. Let's see if he is still on our side.
If he is, let's use our illusion
to get the upperhand on these freaky dopplegangers.
Not back yet, but I'll take a few minutes on the internet here to start things back up. We'll be full time back on Friday.
Okay guys, you all tie red armbands around your arms.
Brogg, you shoot at the other Marivhon... but he uses his monk skills to dodge the missile!
