    The dung-man hops up and squeals like a blackface comic. The wizard and the robed robot dash into the hall.

    [​IMG]
    The wizard prances around to the other side of the hall. The dung-man turns sickly pale. A damp stain spreads over his man-skin trousers.

    [​IMG]
    A telescoping blade extends from the hooded robot's wrist. In a single blurring motion, he slashes off the dung-man's head, which rolls across the mossy floor.

    The hooded robot lifts the broom, returns to the room and presents you to the painted idol.

    You levitate up to the center of the room. A wind swirls in a gyre. Dust and bricks tumble through the air. Metallic shards spin about. Suddenly, all the fragments congeal.

    Your new spider-form begins each round of combat with an electrical attack. You have two built in mandible-pincers. You are now incapable of stealth. In addition, you've snagged two canisters of vapourous retadredment.

    Choose to explore one of the following numbered areas on the map:

    YES! Behold our great becoming! We have exchange our fallible fleshlimbs for arms of killing steel. Now begins the thrusting..

    1. This area seems to be at least relatively stable. We are among allies here...if not friends. Let's explore the vicinity such that we may easily return to rest here when the going gets tough.

    Also, note that the Wailing Well our new patrons seek to throw the Sacred Scrolls into is guarded by the white knight whose quest we accepted earlier. Back then he wanted to gather the scrolls to prevent their destruction, which would make him an enemy of our masters. Something to keep in mind - perhaps we can engage in some politicking down the line and turn these two factions against one another, Yojimboing the fuck out of this shit, if you will.

    You click off to the north, every now and then emitting puffs of steam like a kettle.

    You are beginning to feel hungry.

    You enter a natural cave thick with stalagmites and stalactites. The spider-form easily navigates the uneven terrain. At the north end of the cave, two men in fedoras and a dilapidated functionary bar the way to a circular stone portal. Around them stand twisted lifelike statues of marble, obsidian, sulfur and granite.

    The man lays out a chessboard on a flat-topped stalagmite.

    (1) Begin the trial of reason! (a) Yes (b) No

    (2) Retreat to explore another region as marked on the map. (Except 1, obviously, as that's where you currently are.)

    (3) Fight! If so, select a target for your once-per-combat electrical discharge and another (or the same) target for the first canister of vapourous retadredment.

    Mercantile isn't very smart, so we should definitely go with 1.

    1 (b).
