You open your eyes.

It's dead dark in here. You are hanging from manacles bolted to the rock wall. Dizziness almost takes your consciousness again but you manage to hold on. The smell is of decay and something so awful that if it isn't fecal matter it would be hard to tell the difference.

Chittering noises all around. There's such a mist in your mind you don't know anything about who you are or what you are doing here. Then, something pushes through.

I used to fight with...

A: A great axe and anger.
B: Sword and shield.
C: My mind and magic spellbook.
D: The help of my dark patron
E: The powers of nature and animal forms.
F: A bow and elven magic.
G: Two daggers and stealth.

"You are worthless."

You close your eyes, but instead of black you see everything. Every color, every shape. It's overwhelming and maddening, they move and swirl and then suddenly stop....and turn and edge towards you like an angry crowd. Your body is flung upward with a snapping sound as if whatever tether has held you among the mortals is severed. You shoot beyond this world and float among the stars, taking in the beauty and vastness. It's breathtaking. You feel the blazing heat from the sun and the nebula is...you can't breathe. Panic takes hold of you. You thrash as your lungs cry out in pain.

You are pulled with impossible speed and the bright dots of the universe become stretched lights. As you slow down, you see It. This is where you broke the last time.

It defies description. There is a planet right next to it that is not nearly as large. To know it would be to go mad.

"I give you all this power, and you break. Even as an insect you fail. You are the only one. I will reduce it to a trickle. Prepare this world for me!"


"Why me?" your voice, tiny by comparison, calls out to the void.

"You are the only one. I am coming. Prepare for me! I must be the only idol."


With a flash you are back in the cave, your fingers crackling with elder magic. You seem to have dug your nails into your hands during the ordeal and there's a good amount of blood streaming from your nose, but it wasn't nearly as bad as the last time.

Fortunately, you've ripped the manacles straight out of the rock wall. You can see more in the darkness now, and there's two cavern halls, one to the left and one to the right. The one to the right, you see, there's a goblin with a spear in hand and a shortbow strapped to his back talking to a similar goblin.

You feel deep inside you you could understand their words if you tried. Compared to before, you could do most anything, feels like. It's intoxicating, really.

You speak the words and will yourself to comprehend.

"...we could eat this one already." the visiting goblin pleads.

"The humans might pay for this one too," the guard sighs. "He is not to be touched, Groll says."

"They don't like the horned ones, I told Groll," the goblin spits on the ground. "His belly is full, so he wants to wait anyway," he rams the wall with his back and sags to the floor. "It's not fair."

"Groll says they will pay for the lady too," the guard insists. "She's important."

"We could take an arm," the visitor doggedly persists. "We can still fetch money with one less arm."

The guard shakes his head. "Groll would want to eat the arm."

Let's do a little reconnaissance.

You cast the spell and will an invisible helper into being right in front of you. Although you can't see it, you can vaguely sense it's location.

Command: find the humanoid female. Use the left corridor.

Like a mindless mechanical construct, it immediately sets upon its task. You sense it going down the left corridor. About fifteen feet in, it veers to the right, continues on for another twenty feet, then retraces it's steps in a half circle, presumably along the cavern wall.

It then takes a more central path, and continues on for another 40 feet. You feel your hold weakening, as if the Unseen Servant might dissolve into thin air.

New Command: return to me at once and report.

It does so, but there is no report. It seem the telepathic communication, for some unfathomable reason, is a one-way street. Unfortunate.

Unless...

New Command: if you've seen the woman, stand over here. If not, stand still.

It immediately moves. Interesting.
