My day started out as a normal day. The
up from the east and before I knew it, I was late for our meeting. Me
some adventuring legends were going to go to a mysterious place called
Dogrum's Keep. My fellow adventures where Tiptin (almost a god in my

came at us.
Almost everything that is!!! On our way, we
Dogrum's Forest. This was a very dark place and then we came to a
In this clearing, we found five Owlbears. Piece of cake I thought.
Within 16 seconds of battling these mysterious creatures, I slipped,
was getting hugged to death. It didn't take me too long to kick the
May Willie Makit rest in peace!
Second part by Hewill Makit:
Did you ever get that feeling like
close to you has just died! Well, it happend to me! I felt like my
has just died. Within a few seconds of this feeling, I was magically
to his death sight. I saw Willie dead with another guy and five
There was a group that looked like they were battling these Owlbears. I
felt a mysterious trust in them like my dead brother was trying to tell
my something. They told me they did everything they could do to try and
save Willie but his little heart couldn't hold the pressure of that
I really didn't mind his death
now I get all of dad's will and he always acted foolishly. Jumping into
things and expecting to live. I thought that I should take Willie's
from his hand because his last request from Paladin must have been for
me to help this group out of here. One day when I rule the land and I'm
the greatest magic user of all time, I will bring Willie back from the
Meanwhile the group wasn't in good
We had to go back to the nearest town to get Dani resurected. I told
I have that spell but didn't have the spell conponents with me!!! Oh
Now our group consists of Dani, Mr. Tiptin, me (a mage), another high
mage and cleric, and Derick. We still wanted to go to Dogrum's Keep
of great treasure there. So we went off.
Once we got to the dungon, we went in
This place was weird. There were elementals moving all over the place!
We happend to avoid them for now though. After searching around, we
a secret door that was in a freezer of some sort. It had some cool
in it! I wanted to identify them so I put them on and used my Identify
spell. Worked out ok...this time. They were boots of levitation. Since
I risked my life with trying them on, the group said I could have
After someone exploring, we came
a room with four sockets and four chests with rock like things in
Mr. Tiptin knew the trick for this room from experience. He said it
pretty if you get the wrong rock in the wrong socket!!! After a little
magnet problem with one of the rocks that was pretty funny, we finally
got the sockets and the cheasts right. It led to a treasure room. We
a magical long sword, a potion, and a talisman of some sort.
The next room led down to level
Mr. Tiptin and Sir Dani wanted to adventure on, but the group wanted to
go cash in our goods! So we left not risking guts for glory. The sword
we found was a great fighting sword(+3). The potion was a potion of
or something like that, but we sold it or threw it away!!! The talisman
was a thing that could have given us two wishes but it didn't really
us too much and became a talisman of weight. After some talking, we
threw the book into the water. WRONG MOVE!!! A huge explosion happend.
Nobody too hurt but a little sore.
As for me, I'm happy with this
I found some cool boots of levitation. If I ever get in a fight, I can
just fly up and cast my spells from there! Take that you Owlbears!!! If
I'm out of spells, I can swing my 6' quarter staff like a golf club and
As for Willie, Me and him will rule
land one day!!! I will spare Tiptin and Dani since they are now letting
me say in the pesent quarters of their mansion! CAUTION!!! Be nice to
or pay the price later on in life!!!
