occasions that he wants nothing more than to serve Duach and to assist the
"The souls of the dead wander without direction, crying out at the loss of

Goddess of death, judgment of souls after death, and justice. As of yet, she
has no prophet, but many hope that recent predictions of a new prophet in the
land will mean that Elphame has awakened.

events. There is no storyline knowledge needed to use the items or to hunt in
the newest areas, but it is interesting to know the
whats, wheres, and whys". The "whens", as always, remain a
The biggest appeal to the storyline, secondary only to the social aspects,
appears to be the intricate weaving of stories within stories and an endless
parade of characters contributing to the tapestry of the storyline. The current
task at hand involves
unraveling the multipart puzzles which promise
wondrous surprises in Mabon's Temple when solved.
