My tribe of Goliaths was small, but powerful. We were the smallest tribe in the land but none could conquer us. Why? Because we, unlike most goliaths learned how to use magic. The magic was dark and sinister, but allowed us to become a force of reckoning. When the time came for me to learn the dark arts, I was excited to be given this knowledge. My parents are one of the most proficient magic users in the tribe, but when it came time for me get my first taste of magic, I felt something dark and horrible clutch at my soul! Instantly I could tell that a piece of my soul had been ripped from me, I fled in terror trying to protect what was left of my ethereal identity. I realize now, that it is not the tribe that is using magic for their own gains... But it is the magic which is using my tribe for its own agenda. My family are puppets, dancing to an evil tune played by an unseen master. I vow to free my tribe, and if that proves to be impossible... I vow to take vengeance upon this master of darkness and reclaim the piece of my soul that was ripped from me. In order to fulfill my promise I have committed my life to the light and to what is good and just.... I fear that if I stray from this path, the rest of my soul may very well disappear from my body. The truth is... I dream of that fateful night that my soul was ripped out of me every night... Sleep does not come easy to me.
3. Benito, takes this opportunity to go behind the counter and stands in front of the mantle and inspects the artifact. When the shopkeeper returns to the counter Benito, speaks to the shop keeper without averting his gaze from the artifact.
"Shop keeper, I do not know why you insist on making this errand difficult for us. We have coin, and are looking to purchase your wares in good faith and at fair value"
Benito now looks at the shop keeper and begins to walk towards him, imposing his goliath stature upon him.
"Should you continue to treat us unfairly..." His voice begins to rise in volume and intensity "We will take what it is that we need, and I personally...." He is yelling at this point "will make it my sole purpose to run your shop into the ground. For I, Benito, shall not stand for unjust treatment that has not been warranted!!"
Benito slams coin onto the counter for what he believes is the fair price for the items they need to purchase. "Now, give us the wares we require or suffer the wrath of BENITO URSAMORT, Paladin who has vowed to continue on his mission and of which you currently stand in his way!"
4. "Wizard, I am sympathetic to your past, but I do not condone what you have done. You have given up your soul for power, and I, having experienced the nature of the power you have struck your deal with, can tell you that there is no other way that this would have ended for you. I am on an eternal quest to recover the piece of my soul that was ripped from me, but you.... your soul is no longer tethered to your person in any shape or form. With this final blow, I hope to release you from your torment., but rest assured that I will not allow the unholy actions of this town go unanswered, I will bring divine justice to all who deal with dark powers that be!"
Benito deals the killing blow, believing that he has performed a mercy for the tormented wizard and begins to contemplate what must be done with the town that worships the evil deity Shar.
