Chapter 2: The Dream Of The Dead
I have been accepted to the town even though it is unclear if people really accepted me. Fortunately, someone called Yulgar let me stay at his Inn. When I go to the inn, it seem that he has a assistant called Hans. They are both nice to me. He offered me a room for free. While it is a good offer, I feel sad for him.Yulgar, is there any job available? Well you could certainly help me with forging a weapon Lethis. But I need a few material which is very hard to find.
To repay your debt, I will help you even if it is hard to do. *laugh* Very well Lethis. I need a holy dragon essence which you could create by getting the essence of light dragon, undead aura from any undead, and lastly Abyss Wrath from Abyss Wyrm. If you collect those things, I would be forever grateful.
Since itís already nightime, I decided to sleep in Yulgar inn before searching for the components. I am glad that Iím finally accepted by some people. I keep thinking about it and before I know it I, Iím already asleep. I feel that Iím going into the realm of Death and I have a feeling that he have a message for me.
You know Lethis, you are one of the most luckiest few to live again, Death said. I kinda of expected a better greeting from you Death but you have a point. Now why are you making me going to your realm? This is only a dream Lethis. I am only contacting you through this dream because I have something to say. I feel trouble coming Lethis. You remember the explosion before youíre dead donít you? As a undead, it is hard to remember things, but thanks to your gift I could remember it,Lethis said.
It seems that theyíre making a plan which involve lore, but theyíre plan is so long before it is completed. And you are allowed to use spear now, because I feel it may help. I suggest you to wait for a better time to use a spear though, even though it is your choice.But do not use other weapons other than gun and spear or there will be something bad happen. You should go back now,Lethis. I shall see you in another time.
Wake up Lethis! Could you be a little quiet Hans? It is already sunrise Lethis. But Iím vulnerable to sunlight, Hans. If thatís the case, how could you go to Battleon?Iím also sure Yulgar ask for your help, Lethis. Alright, Iíl take a bath and Iíl be on my way.
I feel really fresh after taking a bath. What I cannot understand is why does undead could take a bath and yet it feels like a human? I feel that Death is really giving me a gift. After taking a bath I asked Yulgar about when I collect all of the components, what would he do with it? That is up to you to decide. First I need to find the light essence. I never met a dragon so I need someone help with it. I need to ask a townsfolk about finding the material. What made me a bit annoyed is every townsfolk that I ask ran instead of helping me.
The last townsfolk that I ask is a paladin which his skill in killing undead almost kill me. So I use my gun and when I try seeing my ammo, I found out that there is a new type of ammo, which is possibly another gift from Death. I shot my enemy but because of the light that blind my sense, my arrow hit a spot that I couldn't see which surprise me that the paladin faint.
I almost took the corpse of the paladin, but something really weird happen. The paladin awake with a deep voice: You will not survive this Lethis! The paladin grows wings and somehow the skin of the paladin teared slowly. It seems that the paladin is a undead!! Then slowly, the head of the paladin is shown to be a skeleton. The paladin then grows a dragon like head which seems that he is a dragon. I grab my gun and shoot with everything that I could. However the power of my gun almost didnít do anything.
The dragon flies to the air to flee. I go back to the inn thinking to ask Yulgar about finding the material. Unfortunately, the dragon use the breath attack from the air. With the element of light and darkness, I cannot fight back. The dragon goes to the ground and it seems that I have no hope left.
Lethis! Will you give up this easily? said a grim voice? Death?! Indeed, this is me. If you cannot kill a dragon, how can you kill the person that killed you before? This dragon is a lot weaker than the person that you will face. But, I have never faced anything like this before!. Like it or not, you will have to survive Lethis. You will face something harder than this, or even me. What do you mean Death? You will find about it later. For now face the dragon Lethis!
My weapon is not ready. With my courage, I shot the dragon with the gun, even though it might not work. *The dragon shouted and slowly, losing its power* How is this possible? I keep shooting and notice that my arrow makes the dragon speed fall. The dragon stopped. This is my chance! I feel my courage has increased. Will this works? Combining my courage with my ammo, my might is unstoppable. The dragon slowly fall. I shoot another arrow, this time I didnít see the range of my ammo. Slowly, I see the dragon explode to pieces. He heal himself, but I manage to kill it, thus making the dragon disappear to a flesh of bone.
Lethis! Your power and courage is very interesting, Twily said. Iím not that strong though. But you killed that Palagon alone Lethis. Do you need a heal, Lethis? I suppose I could have some. There you goes. Thanks Twilly. Anyway I heard that Yulgar is still waiting for you to collect those parts. Alrightí Iíl bring them to Yulgar. However I need Abyss Wrath, any idea where to search Twilly? Go to Deren. You might find a Abyss Wyrm.
As I prepare to go to Deren, Yulgar approached me. Hello Lethis. Twilly told me what happen. Seems like you are going to be a hero. I may or may not be a hero Yulgar, considering the hate that I have. You still did a good job. And youíve also collected 2 reagents that I need. I will forge you a weapon of your choice. Do you want a spear,staff or a blade? Spear is better for me Yulgar. What element do you want it to be? Since all I have is darkness, Fire could be handy. Alright, by the time you are done with the Abyss Wyrm I shall have your weapon done. Good luck Lethis, this will be one of the hardest battle you will face. Also, I shall give you a protection, seeing you donít have one. This shield is called the Legacy Shield, a shield given to Battleon precious Hero. You are worthy of having such a shield. This shield will also help you to fight the Abyss Wyrm. Valencia will help you to go to Deren. Good luck Lethis.
Hello Valencia. Hello, are you here to trade a rare item, to get legendary weapon or to adventure to hard places? Iím only here to go to Deren. Deren is quite far but thanks to the cooperation of the society of Deren and Battleon, you could go there easily. All you need to do is ask me to teleport you to Deren and I shall help you. But before you go to Deren, I have to ask you a question. What is your name and purpose to go to Deren? I am Lethis. My purpose is to kill the Abyss Wyrm. A interesting reason, Lethis. Very well, I shall teleport you to Deren.
Deren is a very big place, even bigger than Battleon. I saw a palace, and decided to go there to find information about the Abyss Wyrm. There I am greeted by Neil, the moglin schlolar. I never seen you before. Are you here to seek knowledge or donate your knowledge?Actually, I am here to kill the Abyss Wyrm. You are indeed a brave one. There are not really many people who dares to fight the Wyrm. Very well. Go to the dock and kill the Wyrm who cause problem to the people of Deren. And may I know your name? I am Lethis from the town of Battleon. Alright, I shall wish you luck on killing the beast.
