    The dropped purse plops on the soft moss. Some of the items within seem rather valuable. You wonder whether the old man made up the story of a curse from spite. It would be shameful to lose such treasure.

    The risk is too great.

    You move EAST, entering into a wide chamber with a dome of fitted stones overhead and round pit that drops away into darkness. From the blackness rise faint moans.

    An enormous knight in armor of white-gold stands before the precipice.

    The white knight gives you a winged-skull necklace.

    QUEST BEGUN - SACRED SCROLLS

    action (open)

    Explore the lower half of the map:

    A1 WEST from the pottery room.
    A2 Move SOUTH from the feast chamber.
    A3 Move EAST from the feast chamber.

    OR explore the upper half of the map:

    A4 Investigate NORTH from the feast chamber.
    A5 Search WEST from the statue room.
    A6 Go NORTH from the statue room.

    Wait, I'm confused. Are we leaving the items or not? When you rolled keep, was that for keeping the skull necklace or what? What happened to dropping them and picking them up again? Do we still have porn?

    Walking up the NORTH hall, you pass an opening on the right, from which a foul stench issues. Continuing up the narrow passage, a door open to the left. You enter a large space choked full of kegs and casks, wineskins, urns and jugs. Empty glass bottles litter the floor. A sotted man sized lizzurd twitches among them, with a near empty bottle pressed to his reptilian lips.

    [​IMG]
    The lizzurd passes out.

    On the WEST side of the room, an iron portcullis leads to darkness. At a round cedar table, a vatnik and a drunkswede in kangly Hittite vestments are downing shots from golden goblets. They beckon you over.

    [​IMG]
    The drunkswede leans close and whispers:

    [​IMG]
    He shouts out the last word. Pain pierces your ear. The single candle on the table burns your incel-cursed eye, so you step back a few feet into the shadow.

    [​IMG]
    The drunkswede gulps down three-quarters of a bottle of Pilsner and offers the remainder.

    [​IMG]
    The vatnik's left hand clasps the large iron spiked mace lying upon the table.

    action (open)

    A1 Drink up!

    OR dissemble

    B1 Make an excuse.
    B2 Bribe (specify item offered).
    B3 Try to turn them against each other.

    OR resort to more direct methods

    C1 Fight!
    C2 Flee!

    if only you cretins didnt vote to drop the shrooms, we could bribe the degenerates with them

    alas

    the imp's glass vials are empty, right? I can't remember now.

    if vials are empty -> 1A and lube up

    if vials are not empty -> use them as bribe.


    edit: ok it seems vials are full, so use them as broib

    You tip the Pilsner down your throat.

    The vatnik pours out a flask.

    You bolt towards the open doorway, crushing empty bottles underfoot. At the threshold, you simply stop running. Your legs don't respond. You can no more walk forward than you can levitate. Trying to move your arms or throw yourself also fails. The enchantment is too strong! You fall back into the room.

    action (open)

    A1 Start drunken!
    A2 Search the room.
    A3 Try to wake the lizzurd and bring him to the point where he can help drink. (Describe items to be used.)

    A2, there is too much to reasonably drink.
