February 4th - beyond time and space!
Hard-boiled private investigator Richmond here. My investigation into General Leo comes to an end. I had defeated the General in battle, but as he fell, a mysterious figure confronted us! It was soon revealed to be Tellah the Sage. HE had been controlling General Leo and the Daravon Cult of the whole time!
"Tellah, why?" I asked, pointing my Laser Private Eye so that the sage knew a quick answer would be much appreciated.
He cackled maniacally and said, "You don't understand the rejection I've felt. My daughter ran off with that bard, I'm more remembered for a poorly-translated quote than for my battle power or personality, and to add insult to injury, THEY WOULDN'T GIVE ME A GUEST SAGE SLOT IN THE SAGES OF SHEVAT! So I decided to take revenge on all of you using foolish rumors of General Leo's resurrection!! I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids!"
It was clear that he was beyond reason, so I got Dekar and Bunanza to back me up, and we took him on.
Tellah kept using his spoony powers to transport us to different times and places from our adventure (and a couple we'd never seen before). But that didn't stop us - we took him down after several rounds of combat and a couple of ridiculously long summon spells. Like most final bosses, he was a piece of cake.
When he was beaten, Tellah asked to be forgiven, and I said that it was no problem... so long as he never did it again. We went our separate ways. The party members dispersed back to their homes, and I headed back to try and clean up my new enemy, Tony "The Gardener". There were little segments detailing each party member's further adventures, but I couldn't help but wonder...
Did I get the best ending?!
That's one mystery even Richmond here can't solve.
