OK, I think we were mostly still in the cave with the wizard, after the big fight.
Some have gone outside to forage/cook etc?
So, here goes...
Gordi stared fixedly at the wizard as he got to his feet and dusted himself down.
He was smirking to himself, like there was some big joke that he hadn't told yet.
"Something you wanted to share?" asked Gordi menacingly...
The wizard looked up to meet Gordi's stare and he smiled.
"I haven't had this much fun in.... well decades actually!" came his reply;
"I'd become sullen and bitter - sorry for myself at my own lonely existence here.
I reolise now that I'm my own worst enemy sometimes. This isn't a bad place to be really.
I have treated you all terribly, and I'm so sorry. You must all hate me for what I've done?"
"Well, you haven't exactly endeared yourself to us yet" Gordi quipped,
"But why so bitter? so twisted? so angry? Can we help you in some way?"
The wizards' face dropped slightly and his smile faded to a look of sad resolution;
"I'm afraid that no one on this earth can help me, I fear I am doomed to spend eternity here.
For without the true magic of the lost realms of the Sun, Moon, Fire and Re-Birth as wielded by the ancients... I am a prisoner here."
"The ancients? queried Gordi, "was it they who stranded you here? What stops you from leaving this place?"
"Yes!" cried the wizard, "well, one ancient in particular... but you could say that I deserved it at the time.
If I try to leave... I encounter a forcefield of energy so strong that even my own considerable powers cannot penetrate it.
Without the lost realmstones I have no way of increasing my powers to the levels required, and so... here I am."
"What exactly do these realmstones look like?" asked Gordi... (they couldn't be what he thought they were... could they??)
"Well" said the wizard, " the Fire realm is symbolised by a mighty Dragon, sitting atop the spiritual realm of re-birth, a huge egg. And rising on
either side, entwined with the Firey Dragons wings are the realms of the Sun and the Moon.
All made of rare gemstones which glitter and glow brightly when brought together."
Everyone in the cavern looked up in unison when they heard the wizards description of the realmstones,
for they were none other than an exact match for the Dragonstone set that our rainbow warriors had in their very possession!!!
Gordi looked round at the assembled gathering and saw smiles breaking out amongst them.
He nodded quickly then spoke aloud;
"Wizard, can we trust you to stay here in the cave for a few minutes?
I need to discuss a matter of great urgency with the rest of our party outside!!"
