So, have you made up your mind?
I’m going through the rest of the adventure. One can never knoew when such an occasion will arise again.
Good choice. Also, well done not eating the books. the owner might have frowned upon it, to put it mildly. You leave the room and follow yet another corridor, deeper into the underworld.
Yeah, that sounds familiar. Now we’re getting to where the evil overlord lives, right?
Possibly. Another door needs to be opened. This is what you can see: An altar, guarded by two mummies.
There is another of those blasted books on that altar, if I am not mistaken.
You aren’t. There is.
The mummies don’t look very frightening.
Maybe that’s exactly what they’re thinking about you as well.
What? No, we can’t have that, can we? Are they difficult to fight?
Yes, they are a lot more dangerous than any of the other minions you’ve met so far down here.
I am going to confuse them. They’re not really smart, right?
They are as smart as a bale of straw.
Hm, just like my best friend Groisch. Makes me rather sentimental now.
Shall I hold the adventure for a minute so you can dry the tears?
Bugger off! I’m gonna run past them and hop on the altar.
They are impressed. But they also warn you that their fearsome leader would probably not appreciate this lack of respect on your part.
What they mean is, he will kick your ass.
Oh, good. That’s exactly what I came here for, was it not?
I rather thought you preferred to be the one doing the ass kicking than having yours being kicked.
You lost me.
Not for the first time. But you keep coming back unfortunately.
Now idea what you’re talking about. Bring on the overlord. I’m ready.
Here he is. An evil wizard indeed. He is incredibly smart and fast. I’d say he is truly worthy of being the final adversary in this adventure.
I hate to say it, human. But this, this is no adversay. This is my old buddy Hector. Good to see you, Hector! Let’s have a giant hug.
But, Thrakbog, what about the poor people in the village? You promised to help them!
If I may remind you, I said, for now. Now not being right now. But a ‘now’ in the past. You got it?
Not really, no.
Like I always say: Orcs are superior. And now Hector and I are going to have a celebration and reminisce about the glorious days when orc hordes haunted the lands.
And so ends the rather strange adventure of the evil wizard under the volcano and his old buddy Thrakbog. I wonder what will happen when Hector realizes that the orc has slaughtered all his minions. Well, that’s probably a story for another time then.
