The cleric Makarth and I planned an attack.  A monk was to be the victim 
this time.  Standing in the open, I brought the monk to us after speaking 
words of prayer.  He arrived confused, seizing this oppurtunity I threw rose 
petals and the confusion in his eyes dissapated.  At once, I wrecked his 
body with maladictions and watched with a smile as he fell to his knees, 
weak and helpless.  My hand found its way to my mace, I lifted it and 
brought it down upon him.  The charm lifted and the monk staggered to get to 
his feet, laughing at the sight, I watched as he struggled to flee.  I 
walked slowly, not wishing to exert any effort in giving chase and to allow 
the monk to fully absorb his untimely fate.  It ended with mercy however, as 
the sounds of boots and loud cries rang high in the air.  Once more, I 
lifted my mace and brought it down upon him.

A whisper rose above the dark stillness and silence.

"You are a fool...even though the light of the morrow is destined to
overcome the darkness of this night, the light can only hold its breath in
fear. In fear of their foresight of the shadows that lurk deep within the
earth, only revealed as the light basks in its certainty of glory and hope
to come. The essence of light breeds ignorance and the dreams of
infallibility then come hand in hand. They provide us with a breeding
ground; their happiness feeds our souls with envy ...I long to extend this
retched hand to one that does not comprehend this fear." With a snarl, the
soft whisper is betrayed by a light growl...

"Look into my eyes, do you understand of what I speak....Appear as no other
would, flesh and bone rotten, fallen sinews and wrinkled skin... feed me
your anguish and hopelessness."

A sharp cry rings out and malignant sounds of bodily desecration are barely
audible over the shrill cry to the pantheon of all gods...then silence.

The surronding space seemed hardly inhabited; dust covered the walls and
earth of this cove in the mountains near Sanction. A sliver of light made
its way by the last bend of the tunnel that was the last to bear witness to
the dragging of a bounded man. At the threshold of the cove, the lights
reach ended short, illuminating the area only a few feet away of the dark
figure that lay sprawled opposite. The figure lay motionless across the
narrow space. A smell of putridity and rot slowly lifted itself to mingle
with the musky, dusty air.

A man gasps out a series of shivers and moans, his gasps only exacerbated
with the wheezing noises arising from his lungs in a rhythmic fashion.

"How useless are these guards now a days, simply pawns of their highlords,
none without a single mind to commit actions that tell otherwise. This calls
for greater interference, but one must be cautious. Many are on the trail,
they have picked up the foul scent of evil in this mysterious dagger, and
now the lapping tongues are on their way.

Suddently, a shape stirs the serenity of the dust; sounds of flapping
sandals can be heard echoing their departure.
