The Tale the Bard Tells

Torias was a mighty warrior who used powerful magics to make himself great in combat. He was a core member of the group that put down the latest resurgence of the cult of Tharizdun. Among his party members were two he came to love. One love was consumated, the other known only to him. He found he couldn't live without either. As long as they journeyed together with a purpose, all was well. Once they had defeated the cult, though, the party splintered. His secret love left to live the life of a wandering minstrel. Torias tried to console himself with the companionship of his lover, but was eventually overcome with longing for his secret love and his heart split in two. In a fit of grief and passion, he hung himself. And thus ended the tragedy that is the tale of Torias.

That's the power of the bard, to determine whether your legend lives on for eternity or dies a premature death.

Damn me but I need to not read these at work, I near cracked a tooth keeping from laughing loudly and having people wonder if I'd finally snapped hehe

Thank you all for letting me know you enjoyed it. I'm glad you did. One word of warning, though, aerin: if we don't hear something from you soon, you are next.

Degolar said...

Are you sure he didn't? We don't really know, do we, since no one's told the tale of his adventures upon leaving Verbobonc . . .
