As I walked down the road towards Neraka I notice something scurry behind me
out of the corner of my eye.  I feel a big presence behind me.

I turn around to find myself looking straight into the eyes of a hairy troll. 
The eyes seem to penetrate deep into my soul.

As it swings it's huge club at me I duck down and cast out a spell of shocking
grasp.

I then spin around behind the troll and stab it in the back killing it
instantly.  As I retrieve some items from the corpse of this foul thing I
realize that this troll has the same look in his eyes as the troll my father
kill way back in my hoe As I retrieve items from the corpse of this foul thing
I realize that this troll has the same look in his eyes as the troll my father
killed.

He killed it way back in my hoemtown where all the dwarves like myself lived.

As I recall back as to why I ever wanted to become a mage, and serve the dark
queen, a passerby hears me me mumble to myself and says "What were you saying
about wanting to serve te dark queen and become a mage?" he asks, while
raising his eyeb

eyebrows in an inquisitive manner.  So as I hover above the ground I
acknowledge him to sit.

I start by talking about myself as a little boy.  "I want to go outside
daddy."  "No son these are dangerous times.  Evil men are destroying our town.
 We will leave as soon as possible."  But dad why can't we just FIGHT them
off?  YOur a warrior I start by talking about myself as a little boy.  "I want

"Your father was a very brave man.  I would've liked to meet him."

*I silently start to cry and hang my head* "I will continue now."  As I was
running off to a secret place known only to my father, I and two other
families I wished my father would be there.

When I got there the other two families were there.  They trained me to become
a warrior like my father.

We intended on going back to fight off the people one night when my father
stumbled in through the door and collapsed on the floor.

But since we didn t know how to heal my father died in the early morning.   U
blamed myself for his death because I wasn't able to heal him.  I trained
myself in the arts of magistry so that I could heal and kill large masses.

One night we decided to attack and regain our home and lifestyle.  As we ran
into town we shouted our battle cry, "THHHEEEIIIWWWAAARRR!!!!"

There was bloodshed everywhere. I was twirling and spinning my staff and
blade.

While casting out spells left and right.  I healed our wounded and wiped out
the enemy as they charged.  I was the leader, I was going to lead our people
to victory.

With me in the lead and my people following we wer an unstoppable killing
machine.

We recovered half the town when we saw a huge reinforcement regiment coming
down the hill.  We knew we were done for.  Then right as they charged us ....

an army of darkness *prays and smiles* swept by us  and wiped them out.

A messenger from the dark army came to us and asked who our leader was.  All
heads turned towards me.

He then said, "Come with me."

I entered a tent in which a goddess of uttermost beauty sat before me.  I
bowed to one knee and said, " Thank you for your kindness and helpfulness."

She merely waved her hand and all of the army disappeared.  I learned later
that it was Queen Takhisis that saved our home and our lives.
