1st Twilight - Text

[Mammon had been around for a few days, just looking this... land over before she decided to make use of her journal.]

My beloved hometown, the sweetfish river running through it.
You who seek the Golden Land, follow its path downstream and seek the key.

If you follow the river downstream, you will find a village.
In the village, look for the shore the two will tell you of.
There sleeps the key to the Golden Land.

He who lays hand upon the key shall travel under the rules below.

At the first twilight, you shall lift up as sacrifice the six chosen by the key.
At the second twilight, the surviving shall tear apart the two who are close.
At the third twilight, the surviving shall praise my honorable name on high.
At the fourth twilight, gouge the head and kill.
At the fifth twilight, gouge the chest and kill.
At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
At the seventh twilight, gouge the knee and kill.
At the eighth twilight, gouge the leg and kill.
At the ninth twilight, the Witch shall be revived and none shall be left alive.
At the tenth twilight, the journey shall end and you should reach the village of gold.

The Witch will praise the wise, and should bestow four treasures.
One shall be, all the gold from the Golden Land.
One shall be, the resurrection of the souls of all the dead.
One shall be, even the resurrection of the lost love.
One shall be, to put the Witch to sleep for all time.

Sleep peacefully, my most beloved witch, Beatrice.

[Wow, creepy and vaguely incoherent? The journal system gets a bit more like the internet every day - and that's probably why it's almost inevitable that Jack responds.]

. . . and that bit about the ninth twilight doesn't quite convince everyone that this Golden Land business might not be such a good idea?
250mhzwabl: (come on now)

Well, death can't be terribly nice if being returned from it, even as nothing more than a soul, is considered a treasure.

See, though, if death isn't actually disagreeable, you're still suffering from a case of false advertising. It's not really a treasure to be delivered from something that isn't so bad in the first place.

It should probably be something more like:

"The Witch will praise the wise, and should bestow three treasures, plus a concession to the apparent preferences of silly mortals with wrong-headed assumptions regarding the desirability of the mortal coil."
