    "Ah yes, we wouldn't want it to get killed when we took such pains to keep it alive, " Seric dismounts and walks to the prisoner where she ungags it, "Creature, can you understand me? Do you have a name?" Lessons in interrogation were coming back to her. Simple questions first, get the enemy talking and they'd reveal more than they intended.

    The thing shrieks something totally untranslatable in Infernal and yells some kind of spell. A brief surge of black fire wreaths the thing and fades again without any visible effect.

    Not appearantly inclined to assert its sanity, the creature begins to intone: "Ouroubrinda, Ouruborinda, Ouruborinda ba-ba-hee! Ouroubrinda, Ouruborinda, Ouruborinda ba-ba-hee!" For a brief instant a whirling disk of crimson energy appears above its body and there is a flash of heat and the odor of sulfur. Then the disk vanishes again.

    Ogodei recoils when he sees the black fire. Taking a few steps back and sitting down he takes out from his backpack a book and some writing material and he begins writing his observations. Adding the latest show of floating disk and the odor of sulfur.

    "Maybe its not entirely his sanity but rather conflicts within himself that causes the randomness in his outburst. Healing it may solve some of the problem but we may risk the chance of losing some information if it vanishes along with some of the other parts.

    You arrive before much longer. Starkspear proper is a small cluster of buildings and sheds built against the base of a particularly large mountain. On first evidence, it appears to be a fairly ordinary mining town, small and rather bland, with dozens of small, neat houses, a couple of taverns, and a handful of shops. A small castle-like affair on the south-side of the village serves as a combination governor’s house, storage facility for gems, and barracks for the small squad of militia and guards.
    As you enter the town, you begin to see subtle signs of a nervous populace. Bunches of mint hang at windows, while small mirrors hang in front of many doors, and at least one house has bunches of monkshood (or as it’s also called, wolfsbane) strewn over its welcome mat. Very few people seem to be outside, and those that are scuttle quickly from house to house, clutching silver pendants or small wooden charms. The sweet (if slightly off-key) strains of lute music and singing voices waft from the small chapel on the west side of the village, even though it’s the middle of the afternoon and not the usual day for worship services.

    You are suddenly very glad that you've hidden the whatever-it-is below a tarp.

    Mint is supposed to have cleansing powers, warding off ghosts and unclean spirits. Wolfsbane, as suggested by the name, is supposed to cause werewolves to revert. Legend states that no vampire will willingly look in a mirror, because it shows them as they were as humans. Silver has the same properties as in regular D&D.

    That at least seems to get a response. A few moments later, the door opens to reveal the governor with a sheet wrapped around his waist. Sitting on the bed behind him, facing the door, is a very pretty redhead wearing absolutely nothing but a rose in her hair.

    "What in all the worlds is going on?!" the governor half-yells. "Is the town being attacked by snow-demons?"

    "What is going on here?" Seric fumes, "That's exactly what I'd like to know!" She barges into the governor's room and snatches up a blanket or sheet to cover the woman with. "We come all this way on the King's business with reports that the mines have ceased operating and the miners are cowering in their homes afraid even to venture out for fear of ghosts and goblins and other tales. What do we find when we arrive but the man in charge apparently taking advantage of this poor, young woman." For all Seric knows this might well be his wife but if you're going to invade someone's privacy and order them around in their own town then you may as well go for broke.

    "Child, " she draped the sheet around the redhead's shoulders, "What has this beast done to you? If he has abused his authority then I will see him pay dearly. Come now, confess. I shall protect you."

    The girl's face is the picture of utter amusement. She falls over backwards off the bed (shedding the blanket again, incidently) and rolls on the floor in peals of laughter. The governor, on the other hand, seems to be too disoriented to even talk intelligebly and simply keeps sputtering, "Wha...but...but...but she..."
