That’s correct, Cyber, except that Martha had stolen the map from the Heroes in the first place. Now, we just need to figure out how to explain the events Kyle added. But HEY, that’s the very idea of this story-game, no? 8P Oh, and note there are some things we still have to stablish:
Who hired the heroes?
What is it they’re looking for? Is it really just lost documents?
Why are spellcasters after it?
What is the green stone?
What do most of the characters look like?
“CORN!!” Ralph tried to scream, as he felt his friend’s hands tighten around his neck, choking him. He struggled, but Corn’s grip was too tight. “WHAT ARE YOU DOING??”
“He’s KILLING you!!” Harold laughed out hard. “You’ll DIE at the hands of your own partner!!”
“No! Corn!! W-Why?”
“He Can’t HELP it!” the undead knight continued. “You see, that’s one of my new powers: Total mind control!! Unfortunately, only on one person at a time! And I have you to ‘thank’ for it!!”
G-gassp “Why- are-you- doing this?? Take the- choke stupid map and- ggll leave us- ALONE!!”
“NO!” Harold shouted. He then walked up to the two of them, and Ralph suddenly detected the smell of burnt flesh. “This was JUST about the map” the necromancer spat out, “But now it’s PERSONAL! Because of you, my beloved and I died, and were trapped in Hell! Only because of my magic was I able to escape! And even then, I had to fight my way out! I defeated the Hell Lord in battle, and thus gained his powers!! But, my beloved Mirabella is still trapped in that foul place! I’ll get her back… but before I do, I’ll see you both die, as horribly as you killed us!!”
Ralph almost shouted back that THEY tried to kill him and his friend first, but realized it was pointless, and besides, he was starting to lose consciousness…
Harold once again laughed, that coarse, froglike laughter. Ralph thought: Is this the how it all ends??
And suddenly- an ARROW struck Harold in the chest!!
“W-WHAAT??” he screamed.
Everyone looked in the direction it had come from-
-and saw a whole squadron of ELVES, having just crawled out of the forest!!
