Lym - Dungeons & Dragons
Excerpt from “Can the gods lie?” By The Most Holy Narayana.
Rigby on the other gods…
“I think it was the most controversial thing I ever said. ‘ Darius the Morningstar’ I gave all of them nicknames like that but for some reason everyone starts talking about Darius as though he really is a star in the night sky. That Djinn isn’t going back in the bottle”
“I was pushing for ‘Passion’ but Ophelia went with ‘Power’ I don’t begrudge her choosing her own destiny, but the world would have been a much safer place if she did it my way”
“Hey Zemo. If you end up drinking yourself to death, do I still get to sing of how you bravely faced the Mighty Barrel of Cider?”
“Darius said she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Leylana is indeed beautiful. The beauty of a finely crafted blade still glowing from the flames that forged it. But you’re still an idiot if you give it a hug and embrace it lovingly”
“Of all of us Strum had the most ballad worthy story. A real tragedy of betrayal and lost love that would have audiences weeping. One day if all of this falls apart I’ll make a play about his life and it will be sold out every night I guarantee it”
“ Alice is really the only one of us who never lost hope, never gave up on the goal not even once. Where she got her resolve from I don’t know. She even remained resolute when we challenged the old gods, that couldn’t have been easy for her”
“ Tamrael is indeed a great musician, but just who do you think taught him?”
“We had Alice on one side and ”/wikis/orlanna" class=“wiki-page-link”> Orlanna on the other. To say it was tense is an understatement. There was never any concern at all that the others would side with Orlanna, but we were about to turn on one of our own for the first time. And it was over something stupid. In the long run this whole argument was rendered moot anyway.”
“I’m not trying to advocate for Harrick at all. What he did was reprehensible. But no one is losing their shit over Darius killing all of the Wyrms. Go ahead and tell me it has nothing to do with him being our leader, and being in love with an Elf”
“Most of the time Kathrassa was given a wide birth. Few wanted any dealings with her. But I would see her and Alice sharing a bottle of wine late in the evenings laughing about something. If I would have picked anyone to have grief with Alice it would have been Kat. But somehow they were closer than any of us.”
“We’ve already had to do more running this morning than I think I have in my entire life. The look on the school teachers face when she realised we weren’t children. Or maybe I’ll write about the farmer who tried to catch us dressed as a cow. Everybody else is so worked up about the big picture they have forgotten who we are doing this for. Spending the day with Taneck in the village, brought me back to my senses and I can’t thank him enough for it, even if all we did was play pranks on people all day”
Rigby is not considered a reliable source, which I find amusing because his text is the only one we are certain was written in his own hand. There are of course too many texts by him that threaten their dogma so they will never treat these sources as reliable.
