Loresong of Urchin Spine donated by Chutnee

(from the Thurfel Quest, opening of the mist August 2001)

(Valicar offers you a long fiery red spine. Enter ACCEPT to accept the offer or DECLINE to decline it. The offer will expire in 30 seconds.
You accept Valicar's offer and are now holding a long fiery red spine.

You sing:

"Spine so long and fiery red
Do not this bardess be misled..."

You peer at the tiny spine in your hand, wondering if it is worth the trouble. Nonetheless, you begin to sing. A vague image of a massive iron vat comes to you, but quickly disperses.

You sing:

"Spine so long and fiery red
Do not this bardess be misled
Therefore tell me all yer tale..."

You restart your verse, once again concentrating on the spine. As you try to find proper words, you sense something vile coming from the item in your hand. Visions of vipers and arachnids fill your thoughts.

You sing:

"Spine so long and fiery red
Do not this bardess be misled
Therefore tell me all yer tale
As I do with persistence prevail..."

Your song continues, the visions intensifying. Your mind wanders into a twisted laboratory, filled with glass vials and caged animals. As you enter the second verse of your song, you sense eyes upon you, breaking your concentration.

You sing:

"Spine so long and fiery red
Do not this bardess be misled
Therefore tell me all yer tale
As I do with persistence prevail
Let every word known spoken be..."

You find an appropriate last verse and sing, your words crystal in tone and harmony. The spine begins to wobble in your hand, then begins to stand on end. As the tip of the spine begins to put pressure on your palm, you sense a dark aura about the spine. Quickly, you end your song, carefully handling the spine as you do so.
