Magic #29

by

Blinding light filled the small glade as Barnabas, on his knees in prayer, shouted out "Unbind!" The remaining skeletons stopped, then collapsed where they stood.

Barnabas rushed to the edge of the firelight, and started throwing up.

Kralla sighed, and knelt next to Tellericks prone body. "Skaran?" The packrat smiled.

"He'll be fine. Clever old bastard. He's been teaching the boy healing magic." He pulled a blanket over William, who was now curled fast asleep next to Tellerick.

"Oh thank the gods!" She turned, and walked over to Barnabas who was wiping his last meal from his muzzle and whiskers.

    Never kill a main character only for shock value. Nothing in the rules to say you can't make it look good though 😉 Thanks Neville 😊

    Of course Jeff, I’d meant to say I knew Tellerick couldn’t disappear completely!

    Aw, brilliant, Jeff. I'd have been well pissed off if he'd disappeared from the story so early. Very cleverly done, mate, fooled me :)
