The purplish ghoul inclines his head
Follow me lady, and I will show thee the way. The Zoogs are a race of dream creatures that trade souls of the Dreamlost with the Gugs and the Black Shadows of Dread N'Granek. They are weak, but their nets of dreamweb are dangerous to be entangled in.
He leads LJ down through the maze. The darkened corners are filled with whisperings and meepings. after a long distance and many confusing turns, the ghoul brings her out onto a darkened plain with a dark menacing forest in front of them.
Behold the Forest of the Zoogs He says
I saw a shade of a woman pass here heading to the Forest of the Zoogs. She was flame haired, but pale and wraithlike. Thou wilt need someone to show thee the way. I will come with thee if thou wilt.
"I am Lynora-Jill, the Star Song. A pleasure to meet you, Mr. Pickman. I do not mean to rush you, but my time in this realm is limited and I must find my friend while I still can. How can I gain the permission of your king to pass through this place?"
I can speak for him, and grant thee safe passage. First, though, I must know of thy errand. Who dost thou search for?
The ghoul meeps
Lady, the way is fraught with danger. The Black Shadows lurk about, whispering of Dread N'Granek and the bone hills. Zoogs stand ready to snare your soul with their dreamwebs.
The ghoul c0cks his bald head.
You seem to be a Power. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Richard Pickman, Herald of the Ghoul King. You will need his approval to go further.
