When Kalath lets them know of his interest in exploring Wicht's Lair, the Ancient Masters summon him and present him with a large Iron skull-topped Key and a map. The map, they explain shows the way to the entrance to the lair and the key will open the front gate.

"To enter Wicht's lair," the ancient Masters explain, "You must first pass through a cemetery. The cemetery is marked on the map. The cemetery itself is a dangerous place and we think there may be hidden entrances into Wicht's lair in some of the tombs. Be cautious however!

"The main entrance to the lair is found on the other side of the cemetery. The top layer of the lair we believe to be inhabited by goblins and perhaps orcs as well."

Then as they send him on his way they wish him luck.

The journey to the cemetery is peaceful enough, almost too peaceful. Kalath finds himself growing bored with inaction. And then after what seems like an eternal journey he reaches the sight. He stands on a hill overlooking a small private cemetery, scarcely two acres in size. There are no tombs within it, only small tombstones.

A path winds around the cemetery fence, a fence that is admittedly rather large and ominous for such a small peaceful place. There are two small figures seated in front of the large iron gate.

It is the night of the sword and the moon is full illuminating the small valley below Kalath.

Dagger ready, Kalath approaches the gate.

Goblin Guards

The two small figures, Kalath sees, are goblins, each holding a spear.

"Halt!" says one of the goblins as Kalath approaches.

"Yeah," snarls the other goblin. "Who goes there?"

"Kalath goes here. I have been sent to enter, and have to this key to unlock the gate." Kalath shows them the key.

Kalath looks at them. "Will you let me pass?" His hand holds the hilt of his dagger....

"He does have a key," says one goblin to the other.

"Bah!" spits the other, "The last group had a key too and the boss gives us a good sound, beating! Wors'n when we ates his cat! Don't let no other groups of do-gooders through says the boss. How do we knows yous is not a group of do-gooders?"

With a penetrating eye the goblin scrutinizes Kalath.

"I am no 'do-gooder'... and I am obviously not a 'group'. A group would require more than one person. As your lord's orders were to not let groups of do-gooders through, and I am neither group nor do-gooder, I obviously can pass. I'm glad that this can be resolved so simply." Kalath nods his heads to the goblins and walks up to the gate.

Through the gate

The goblins are still scratching their heads when Kalath turns the key in the lock.

Kalath recieves 1/2 an experience point

The key turns easily and the gate swings silently open.

All seems well until Kalath steps across the gate's threshhold and then the world seems to change. The night becomes greyer and the cemetery seems to grow before his eyes. A cobbled path heads north through the cemetery in between two hills. the moonlight shows a smaller stone strewn path leading off of the main path up the hill to Kalath's right, up to a columned building that Kalath knows he had not seen from outside the cemetery gate. Likewise to his left there seems to be a large crypt just beyond the top of the western hill.

Somewhere near, Kalath hears a wolf howl.

Kalath leaves the path and begins to climb the hill. The climb is steep but not difficult. Around him the tombstones glisten white in the moonlight.

Kalath reaches the top of the hill when a howl from the east grabs his attention. It sounds so close. Turning he can just make out a group of shadows moving around the columned building on the hill now almost a quarter of a mile east of him. He cannot tell if they see him or not, but he is certain they are wolves of one sort or another.

As he pauses there observing, the ground moves under his feet. He steps back a minute as he sees first hands and then arms erupting from the soil.

Two dead things are pulling themselves up from the very dirt. Their stench is great and Kalath is certain he sees something wiggling in their skin.

The zombie in front of Kalath moves deceptively swiftly, punching at Kalath's stomach. The zombie behind Kalath brings both his fist up to deliver a crushing blow at Kalath's head.

Zombie 1: The blizzard strikes next to the prairie; aggresively dodges the roar of the ape!

Zombie 2: The rabbit crushes the castle; shields against the descent of the invisible blade!

Charging at the zombies that have attacked him in this desolate wasteland, Kalath leaps and dodges to try and avoid their strikes, and finding an opening attempts to slice one of the zombies with his dagger!

Attack at Zombie #2: The wolf charges the wastelands; leaps over the violence of the battlements!

Kalath slices into the one zombie for 1 hit but the other punches him in the kidneys for 1 hit

The zombies continue to attack aggressively. The second zombie, after having struck Kalath begins to claw, teeth bared. The other stands still, hands like claws aimed at Kalath and the fighter feels an unholy chill eminating from it.

Zombie 1: The astral panther withers the hells; avoids the foray of the shadow!

Zombie 2: The wolf ravages the lake; slides within the slash of the amphibian!

Seeing both zombies coming at him hard, Kaltath reels the back and thrusts out both his hands, flinging a small weighted at each zombie and knocking them back for a few seconds.

Dirty Trick!

The one zombie is a bit stunned from Kalath's trick and prances around a bit before striking out. The other however continues its relentless attack.

Zombie 1: The blizzard shreds the spring; parries the gaze of the orchid!

Zombie 2: The panther prances close to the marsh; protects against the motion of the spirit!

Kalath presses his attack on the wounded zombie, using his newly-acquired steel chopsticks to wither away the zombie's life, leaping over it's violence as he does so!

Atttack at Zzombie #2: The chopstick beautifully withers the plain; leaps over the violence of the honor!

The second zombie grossly parodies Kalath as he attacks, using his fingers as chopsticks.

Zombie 2: The chopstick invades the delta; shields the chi of the fell dagger!

Moving as quickly as a spider, and with a spider's great relative strength, Kalath cuts into the zombie, and wards off it's attack!

Atttack at Zombie #1: The spider cuts the desert; wards off the aggression of the orchid!

(BTW, it is Zombie #1 that is left; by blows killed #2. Not all that important, though)
