The wolf, exultant charges... with the speed of a turtle. It all seems like slow motion...

Wolf 2: The turtle charges the mesa; silences the rolling of the chi!

As the wolf charges slowly, Kalath assumes the position of the Lotus Blossum and punches the wolf, fending off its slashing fangs!

Attack at Wolf #2: The lotus blossum punches close to the pond; fends off the slash of the willow!

Standing on its hind legs, the wolf attempts to use its claws to mark Kalath.

Wolf 2: The monkey tranquilly shreds the marsh; reduces the terror of the lightbeam!

Attack at Wolf #2: The fox flips below the mesa; quells the speed of the fell dagger!

Still walking on its hind legs, the wolf attempts to body slam into Kalath!

Unsheathing his sword, Kalath swings it so fast it seems to sing, aiming to disembowel the wolf!

Attack at Wolf #2: The sword sings on top of the ricefield; dominates the kick of the bird!

A swing of the sword and the wolf lies dead.

Kalath recieves 1.5 experience points.

Around Kalath the night is relatively silent now except for the lone chirping of crickets and the creaking branches of the massive tree with its grisly ornaments.

Kalath can see no features in the small valley except for the tree on the hill above him and the many tombstones on the ground.

Kalath walks through the tombstones, investigating if he finds anything of interest, and heading to the tree if he doesn't find anything of interest.

It is really hard to read the tombstones in the dark so Kalath makes his way up to the tree. There a dozen bodies swing silently from the great limbs. There is a sign of some sort staked into the ground not far from the tree but it can't be read in the dark.

The tree is on the top of the hill and the land slopes down in every direction. About a quarter of a mile to the east, there appears to be a large crypt of some sort with many torches alight on its pillars. There also appears to be another crypt about a quarter of a mile north of the tree.

Tombstones litter the ground in every direction.

Kalath first tires to read the sign, then heads towards the lighted crypt to the east.

"Might as well head towards the light, heh."
 

Wicht

Adventurer
When he squint real hard, Kalath can just make out Tree...dead...lucky on the sign but the other words are impossible to make out in the light.

Kalath encounters nothing unusual on his way to the crypt, but as he is about halfway there he notices what appears to be a well, just off to his right, a short distance away. A cobbled path, glistening white in the moonlight leads north from the well.

Strangely there are no paths leading to the large, well lit crypt.

Kalath approaches the crypt and realized he was wrong about its size. Its not just large, is huge. Looking almost like some sort of marble capitol building, there are massive steps leading up to the double doors of the crypt. 13 pillars line the front, each covered with smoking torches. Thirteen statues line the porch of the crypt, statues of wolves curled around and besides the pillars.

At the top of the front arch is engraved WICHT.
And just below that the words, "May he Rest in Peace forever.".

Some distance south of the crypt, Kalath can see movement amongst the tombstones. Around the Crypt itself nothing is currently stirring.

"So... this is his tomb... the tomb of Wicht."
"May he rest in peace... and leave me alone while I loot his tomb... heh heh heh."
"And it looks like I will be the first to reach here... the first to truly enter the tomb itself."

Kalath continues to chuckle as he ascends the stairs, his eyes set on the door into the tomb of death.

If he can, Kalath opens the door... and enters the tomb.

The doors to the massive crypt swing easily open to the touch. The room that the doors open onto is large. OVerhead, gargoyl statues peer down at Kalth and statues of wolves adorn the room everywhere. A pale figure flits here and there among the statues.

To the south a wolf howls.

The pale figure leaves the satues and approaches Kalath. It is a man, or was a man maybe. The form is that of a man dressed in expensive clothes. But the form is also semi-transperent.

"Greetings," says the spectre, "I am Willford, the caretaker and you are a trespasser. The master is expecting no visitors and I would caution you to leave before you get hurt."

Villager
"Thank you for the warning, Willford. Sadly, I will not be following your advice. Good day."

Kalath continues onward.

There are two massive doors, the twins of those on the outside of the tomb across on the eastern wall of the room. Kalath strides forward to the doors and the spectre laughs.

"Little man," he says, "You are out of your depth. You think to rob graves but you have yet seen only the prisons of Lord Wicht. Should you proceed you will be very lucky to live. Nevertheless, i will not stop you, I am only the warden, I leave the guarding to others."
 

graydoom

Villager
"Good. We will see how the guards do."

Kalath opens the doors and continues deeper into the tomb.

ooc: Last post for the night. Sleep needed.
