Ch. 2, Page 23

Robilar and Terik stood close to each other, whispering in the dark.

"I don't know..." Terik said.

"Did you have enough time to find out where he keeps his spell book in town?" Robilar asked.

"Well, I think so, but..."

"And don't you think he's either out of spells now, or very low?"

"Yes, but..."

"And wasn't this always the plan?" Robilar prompted impatiently. 

"Yes,, Rob, I like him.  Can't we just keep him around?"

Robilar gave his cousin a cold stare before he threw up his hands and stomped around in a small circle.  It was all he could do to keep his voice down and whisper, "Are you going soft on me?"

"No, Rob, but we make a good team, the three of us.  Maybe we should think about keeping a magic-user around permanently.  It could pay off in the long run better than bumping him off now, don't you think?"

"Hmm.  Hrmm..." Robilar hemmed and hawed as he mulled it over.

  1. The Robilar "run away" moment! :D

    Also: "cousin"?


  2. Re: cousin -- good catch. From Rob Kuntz's Oerth Journal article, " In the Greyhawk Campaign, Teric was played by Theron "Terry" Kuntz, Rob's real brother, though the characters themselves shared no familial relationship (this having been added by Gygax during the writing of Isle of the Ape)." I decided to, instead of siding with one or the other, compromise by making them cousins.

  3. I had wondered about their relation. Nice.
