GRUNION GUY IV
For some reason, Grunion Guy IV, a male Chaotic Elven Wizard,
worshiped Anhur, an Egyptian God of War. Perhaps it was the Chaotic part. Or
else it was just that GGIV* was planning on learning lots of Spells of War and
bringing a whole lot of magick butt kicking to the Dungeons of Doom. Whatever
the reason, GGIV set off on his probable failing expedition!
4th Generation, Level One:
I descend into the depths of the Dungeon of Doom on the night of the full
moon. This is lucky for some reason.
I have packed much better than my descendants ever dreamed. Why
rely on luck when one could enter the dungeon well-equipped? I know the spell
Force Bolt and also the spell Create Monster. Some would wonder why I needed
such a spell but I know that there will be many altars along my path and each
will be hungry for the blood of sacrifice.
I carry with me a Wand of Lightning which should get me out of
some tough jams, as long as I can keep from killing myself by the ricocheting
I hope my other magick items prove useful as I seem to have
forgotten to purchase any food for the expedition. If all else fails, I suppose
I can eat the cat that followed me into this crypt.
I have easily found the stairs down to level two. Between my +1
Quarterstaff and my Force Bolt Spell, nothing seems to be able to stand in my
way. I also found 2 rations of food, thank Anhur. On to Level Two!
4th Generation, Level Two:
Being more powerful than all of my ancestors combined, I find myself
challenged hardly at all on Level Two. And my reward for all the killing so far
seems to be locked away in this chest I sit upon. I will discover its contents
in a moment.
Death Lesson Learned: Stupid Chests can be trapped
and they're quite deadly to Level One Wizards.
