"Big, stupid one! Gortbork follow him and he think he tough! Not scared of anything!" The little goblin says hoping to get Marduk interested in breaking the big lump in the way only a priest of the bloody god can.

Marduk cannot conceive of why he would send Gortbork to follow that oaf, but, then again, he can't remember saying much of anything after cutting through the dead orc's breast bone. Ah, yesss, yesss. I knew that Gortbork. I was testing you. You passssssed." Marduk extracted the orc's black heart with two hands, it's weight requiring a considerable amount of effort. "Tell me my giddy goblin, what did you discover about thisssss Dumbag... Dursssslag... whatever? And would you be so kind to hold thissss for me? Where'ssss Poyo?"

bugger, thought I replied to this! sorry.

Gortbork takes the heart in his open palms, even the stench of 2 day old heart not enough to spark his hunger after last nights events "Durbag kill Poyo .. He kills him and laugh that he no scared of Marduk or his little god, Praise be to the Bloody God!" He says looking down at his feet hoping his addition will be enough.

Sorry for the delay. I've been on vacation in the Virginia mountains. No internet and the cell reception was atrocious

Marduk dropped the dead orc's intestines mid-evisceration. "Be sssstill almighty Zemox!" Marduk trembled with genuine fear. "Your loyal sssservant will take care to punish ssssuch blassssphemy."

Marduk turned from his experiment and began pacing. His tentacled tongue hung out, the tendrils wriggling independently as he contemplated various dastardly deeds.

"I atone for ssssuch grossssss overssssightssss, Bloody Lord."

"We must turn our attentionssss towardsssss thisssss new menace, Gortbork. I apologize for your losssss. Durbag'ssss oafishnessssss blinded me. Did you offer Poyo'ssss sssssoul to our Lord before you ate the corpssse?"

Gortbork hiccups and nods his head "Yes master, Gortbork is with Poyo now. When Zemox calls, Poyo go with Gortbork to his Bloody Halls!"

He smiles wickedly, Durbag will pay!

Marduk abruptly stopped his pacing, "Give massster a few momentssss my loyal lackey."
His pale lips slithered into a smile,"I need to do a few preparationssssss."

It seems like we've written towards a white but if you all real mean we can surely make a U turn into a unhappy scene for Gortbork.

OK we haven't tried a resolve yet so I think I'll do that now. I want this to go well for bad ol' Marduk.

Anyone have any ideas for his scene. The first thing that came to mind was Marduk having to get help from Zemox to have enough power to 'teleport' those orks to the church. Fun to have him not in the position of power.

Another idea could be something to do with him enacting his game against the orks, maybe walking through the Minotaur's maze setting up stuff, like a theatre director before the first performance.

Heh, maybe teasing the Minotaur - and making him REALLY angry - before he tosses those two buggers in front of him?

I like both those ideas. Definitely think Marduk should get his power from somewhere as he'd be far too overpowered otherwise. And introing the Mino is a great idea. Let me know when you're ready.

Ok, I guess we can start establishing... The place could be directly the entrance to the dungeon with the Minotaur, maybe next to his "cage" (or whatever you hold minotaurs in). There Marduk can start teasing the minotaur and then - before relesaing the angry fella - go to prepare the maze with the help of Zemox to set up the more elaborate traps...

I could always resurrect the Mino from the orc corpses I've been working on...

I can play the minotaur, if you want.

Shit! I've been sick, and completely forgot about this thread. I'm SO sorry!

Act 2 scene 1

The rain lashes the cliff face as the entrance into the labyrinth comes into view through the sheets of heavy drizzle. The stone archway is lit only by the pale moonlight that momentarily breaks through the low clouds. Marduk has some very interesting plans afoot, but first a little preparation is needed.

From within the sounds of hoofs on stone can be heard just above the howling winds....

Marduk walks into the archway carrying the eviscerated body of the orc warrior.
Gortbork limps behind him, leading Durbag and Larrock bound in iron shackles.
Marduk lays the body in the entrance and steps back hurriedly.
Once far enough away from the corpse, Marduk speaks, his voice booming with the aid of magic: "An offering hassss been placed great Minossss of Mooria," red, glowing air bellowed out of his mouth with every enchanted word, "I ssssseek a favor in return for this feassst!"

Sorry!!!! Started student teaching last week and got absolutely overwhelmed.
