The group draws weapons and readies magic as the barbarian screams from atop a pile of coins
“OR MAYBE I WILL JUST SING…” The barbarian bellows out confusingly
Turk’s hands go to his waist as his sword clatters to the ground and his voice squeaks out like a child. Turok begins a fantastic rendition of the Orcish classic People Crackers In my Soup
Once Mother said My little orc
There’s a meat tastier than pork
So in my soup I was fed
crackers that looked like Joe and Ted
Turok begins shuffling a jig in time with his song, scattering coins about in the process
People crackers in my soup
humans and half elves loop the loop
Gosh, oh gee! but I have fun
Swallowing people one by one
In every bowl of soup I see
Halflings and dwarves watching me
I make ’em jump right through a hoop
Those people crackers in my soup
His jig becomes a frenzy of interpretive dance
When I get hold of a big bad elf
I just push him under to drown his self
Then I bite him in a million bits
And I gobble him right down!
When they’re inside me where it’s dark
I walk around like I’m King Orc
I stuff my tummy full of people goop
With People crackers in my soup!
While the others are trying to form a battle idea that doesn’t involve killing Toruk. Vinny has correctly deduced that the ghost is possessing Turok. Vinny yells “Revelri. .. You have had your fun, and as much as I think. a teenage female poet in a barbarian meat head is hilarious. .. I don’t think you want to be in there much longer. What are you excepting to get from this. ?”
The ghost/Revelri disappeared at the same time that Turok started acting crazy
Alynis yells out, “One of them tried to do something like this to me, I felt her trying to get into my brain, but I was able to shake it off”
Everyone has a reasonable feeling that it is Revelri the poet who is making Turok act this way, some like Raif Windgate (Mourning Storm) actually enjoying the ridiculousness of it all.
Turok ends his song and looks at Vincent who had addressed Revelri:
Vincent: “You have had your fun, and as much as I think. A teenage female poet in a barbarian meat head is hilarious. .. I don’t think you want to be in there much longer. What are you excepting to get from this?”
Turok/Revelri: “This is a bully, he uses his strength to torment the weak, I will not stand for his treatment of my cousin (Blaine), This is not FUN for me, I abhor violence, but I WILL make you kill him if he continues with his evil ways. Violence on the violent can by understood, But violence against the innocent will not go unpunished”
Same as yesterday,
Same as morrow,
With a strong hand, you’ve rested a sorrow
Vincent: “Do you know Regine went?”
Turok/Revelri: "I do not know of Regine, I can feel that Rebecca is here though…..
How wonderful is death?
Death, like his bother sleep
Death as pale as a far off waning moon
Skin of lurid blue
Sleep rosy as a morning
On a crest of an ocean’s wave
Both so asking and wonderful
A light scent of perfume fills the room
Another of the girl ghosts is in the room, she has appeared silently and speaks:
Ghost #2 (Rebecca) I want to see Tommy again (she is not looking at Vinny)
Rebecca: It hurts so much can we go now?
Revelri/Turok: Yes you may go, Tommy waits for you
Rebecca: But what of you?
Revelri/Turok: I can not trust some of these heroes to do right, I must stay…
Rebecca NO! you are hurting too, we can go now, we must go!
Revelri/Turok: Father wants his status back, and our cousin deserves to have what he should.
Revelri/Turok (addresses the group) You will let Blaine do as he wishes with what is due him. I do not wish to use the power I have, but I will punish any of you who try to cross the Listmoor’s. (Looks back to Rebecca) When they have done the right thing I will meet you, go now be with Tommy…..
Rebecca’s ghost fades to a fist sized ball of light, it swirls for several seconds then shoots upward and out through the “dome” of the room, it becomes lost among the stars in the night sky
Turok you continue to feel the manipulation of your being, it is wearing on you. You are fighting it but whatever is inside you is powerful. You feel as though you have a great fever, and are hallucinating or dreaming, not in control of your actions. In the same way you were able to slap and manipulate and threaten those weaker persons around you, this force is treating you the same.
Everyone can see that Turok is sweating.
Turok/Revelri: “okay let’s see…..”
The form of Revelri is standing back were she was earlier.
Turok let’s out a mighty breath as if he had been holding his breath for a long as he could."
Turok’s hands class at his stomach and he looks to double over in distress
Revelri: Now if you will abide by your original agreement with my cousin….
Turok doubles over, vomit dribbling from his lips and realizing he’s soiled himself
Revelri: ‘The Quick Brown Orc Jumped over The Sleeping Yellow Dragon’ are the words to return, Father let me make them up when I was but a child
Revelries ghost fades
