Valencia: Sometimes I'm surprised just how nice that chickencow can be. This time, Zeuster would like you to help out one of his friends.
Valencia: The spirit of his friend's wife is being tormented by a trickster in the Underworld.
Valencia: Death doesn't want to let her go, and not even repeated pleas have made him change his mind.
Valencia: His frirend is distraught and Zeuster hopes you can help. He adds a piece of advice: Don't fear him. He certainly knows how to be ominous.
When your character passes two rivers of lava, a text bubble comes up, saying "Boy, am I glad that I don't have to cross THESE streams!"
E.Gon: I totally managed to grab the last pair of Grateful Undead tickets last night!
Zule: You mean for their show at the Mausoleum?!
E.Gon: You know it! And their manager, Go Zur, even gave me free backstage passes!
Kniebil: And... and the last thing I remember is this huge half man, half bull monster hurtling towards me with an axe!
Ophelia: Oh you poor brave soul! And to think, you did all that stunt work and they never even said thank you!
Freddie: Hey, I heard that underpaid test guy finally got done in.
Cestis: I hope his end was a noble one! Like staring Death in the face, maybe, or wrestling one of those three-headed dogs roaming around.
Goober splurts onto the ground and becomes humanoid
Cestis: Ugh. You look like something one would find leftover in a tissue. I would appreciate it if you'd kindly move!
Goober: OTAY! *squish* MOOOOOVING CLOSER!
Goober chases Cestis; goo-ing Charlie in the process
Charlie: He goo'ed me!
<Character>: It's about time you showed up.
Death: Has it ever occurred to you that maybe the reason I've been so busy is because the dead have been rising from the grave?
Death: With so many necromancers running around these days, it's almost impossible to keep a set schedule.
Death: Which, speaking of, don't you owe me one or two?
<Character>: Oh, no. No, no. You must be thinking of some other <Class>.
Death: That will be enough out of you. Back to the Void you go!
Cast a darkness spell on Goober, making it disappear
<Character>: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Nice shootin', Death!
Cestis: Can you help me? I want to go home. I miss my husband. But Death will not listen to my pleas.
<Character>: Well, normally, I make it a rule to never get involved with undead people.
<Character>: Aah, who am I kidding? I am involved with undead people all the time!
Cestis: Then you'll help me?
<Character>: I'll see what I can do.
<Character>: So, Death. What do you say? How about freeing this one little spirit, as a favor to me? You wont even miss her.
Death: She may not leave! And you aren't exactly in a position to be asking for more favors...
<Character>: Right. I figured your answer was going to be something like that.
You battle Death
Cestis: My hero! Did my husband request your help? I never thought I'd be free of this place.
Cestis: Did some benevolent god intervene and decide to send you?
<Character>: There is no benevolent god, there is only Zeuster.
Cestis: And you, you must be some demi-god, no? More powerful than ordinary mortals?
<Character>: Normally, when someone asks if I'm a god, I like to say yes.
<Character>: But, to be honest, I'm just a hero trying to do what's right, earn some gold, and convince a contrary chickencow deity to share what seems to be...
<Character>: ... the best-kept secret in Lore.
Cestis: You don't act like a hero.
<Character>: Most of them are pretty stiff. But I bet you see a lot of stiff people down here.
