Thoughts of Festan Bulbous.
Let me begin by saying that I love those little flexible plastic prepainted figures issued by "Wizards of the Coast". Not only are they durable I like the fact that if children chew them they are less likely to damage not only the figures, but themselves as well.
Festan Bulbous is a Cleric of The Sun God. His God is considered a good god. Good gods tend to frown upon behaviors not considered "Good". The torture of Prisoners seems to fall among this category of behaviors. The Clerics reflections follow...also upon his recent return to the city he has discovered that his young son has been Kidnapped!!!....
Reflections of Festan Bulbous:
It is my sincere desire by noting down my reflections to provide a record of my exploits for the benefit of my fellow church members. These reflections should be of value since it is not only success but failure which will help us all to grow and become better servants of the light.
Recently I have had great difficulty communing with the glory of my lord the god of sun. In a vision, it became clear to me that the reason for my loss of favor has to do with the torture of a prisoner. Another member of my party also fell from grace through similar circumstances. Hence the motivation for this log...since had I taken proper note of his tribulations I would not now be in my own.
Therefore here is the first lesson.
Observe ye and understand the errors of your fellows and the consequences of them lest ye be doomed to repeat their sins and reap the sorrow of the harvest of sin which ye sow.
Let us reflect then upon my actions. Recently we engaged a group of murderous brigands at the Lucky Monkey Inn(Often referred to the 'Spanking Monkey Inn' ...why I do not know). Suffice it to say the Inn was far from lucky for its visitors who were slain and robbed as they slept. After their defeat I was so enraged by their behaviour that I wanted quick answers to my questions and made a grievous error. I tortured a prisoner. I justified my actions by thinking this "small" evil will generate a "greater good". It did not truly....therefore behold the second lesson...
Commit no evil for the greater good. Evil begets evil. Only good can beget good. Beware the path of "small evils" for even a great thorn tree grows from a small seed.
