Dawn, or what appeared to be a slight shift of color in the surrounding blackness came upon Foss.
The figure in the shade, had still not stirred. Getting curious, Foss used his staff to shed a little more light on the figure. To his utmost
disappointment, it only turned out to be a stone carving in the shape of a bent, wizened man.
"Figures, only I would fall for a stone scarecrow" he muttered, looking at the statue with interest.
The light struck off something glinting on the back of the statue - with a cautious look into the statue's eyes, for it felt like it was watching him
intently, Foss looked around back. There, attached across the shoulders, appeared to be some kind of sword hanging in a scabbard.
The sword was of an unusual make and model; medium length blade, runes running across the silver-purple metal, with traces of what appeared to be a
(glowing?) crystal flame around the base. The end of the sword was unusual, in that instead of ending in a point, it had a rounded knob with a vividly
glowing crystal in its core.
"I'd be careful with that, if I were you" croaked a crow, different from the two previously met.
"Because, that sword holds a piece of the final stone that your companions are so desperately looking for; use the power for good purposes, and you
will have no problems...use it for bad, and you'll meet the fate of poor Anteros".
"No time to explain now. I'm afraid you must move quickly, if you want to help your friends in the cave...Two of your companions are nearby; One's
an odd-looking creature, but the other is I believe to be Jane. Hurry - take care of the weapon; for it's the wizard's".
Grabbing the sword, and sneaking off into the brush after Jane & Homer (who could now be heard), Foss came rushing in, exclaiming as he went "I can
probably help with that" (in reference to the prior conversation of saving Dawg), "but we need to move now".
Foss, now having a decently powerful sword and staff cast a protective shield around the cave. Although it trapped Night and Dawg together, the shield
was more for the benefit of the others, keeping them safe from falling under Anteros' influence. Homer roused the sleeping army, and Jane readied the
Gordi & True led the way, leading the troop into the flatulent bowels of the earth, with the rest of the troop following.
After everyone went in, another figure crept down silently - Wearing a medallion not unlike the one CC, Syx, & Foss put back together earlier, a staff
that rivaled anything Foss owned, and a long cloak coated in runes. With a smile (or rather, a grimace), the figure crept into the entrance, oblivious
to the protective spells around the cave entrance.
And the darkness swallowed everything.
Glad to hear the good medical reports everyone!
