We now enter the fourth casting of the wizards’ duel between Khazan the elf and Gristlegrim the dwarf. This duel is happening to publicize the availability of the new dwarven spell book, and elven spell book, each of which contains spells and magical styles distinctive of the different kindreds. I am trying to sell those tangible copies for $5 each and $5 postage. If you just wanted to buy one of them from me, it would cost you $10. But if you buy them both at the same time, I can double up on the postage and shipping time–saves me time and money, so you could have them both for just $15. Autographed. There are currently 9 copies available from me. (Some day in the far future when your heirs are selling off your estate, they will appreciate that you got these old gamebooks signed–or maybe not–it’s all a crapshoot.)
Khazan vs. Gristlegrim–the fourth casting.
Greatly angered that Khazan’s sword enchantment did terrible damage to one of his minions, even though the sword shattered in doing so, Gristlegrim lost his temper, forgot all civility and cast one of his most potent curses at his foe, using up 100 points of kremm in the process. The spell is known as Demonic Death and it deals disintegration damage equal to 10 times the caster’s combined intelligence plus dexterity.
On the other side of the arena, Khazan took a small object from a hidden pocket in his crimson robes and placed a minor enchantment upon it, using only 2 points of kremm–the elven spell known as Merging the Spiritual and Material Worlds. He managed to launch this small enchanted sphere just as Gristlegrim, whose combined INT + DEX is a really high number.
(Note: Khazan was not destroyd by the Demonic Death spell, although the small sphere was blasted into a million tiny grains of glass.)
For tvp, please tell me who got the better of the encounter?
