AREA NAME: Sarkath Khan [Johnny]
Monster class range since inception: 34 to 9,913

From Fantasy:
Step 1: <portal; 12w; leave; 4w; 11n; path>

Step 2: <enter; order beer; order room; sit>
You sit down next to the man. He introduces himself as Zarkof.

Step 3: <give beer to zarkof> and wait for his speech to end
Zarkof says: Thank you my friend. I am broke and a beer was exactly what I wanted.

Zarkof takes a big mouthful from the cold beer, looks at you and says: I already figured that you're looking for Sarkath's crypt. I know where it is because I was there searching it with a party some 2 years back. It ended up with everyone except me getting killed by something in there. The only reason I'm alive is because I was getting some new torches outside the crypt as something attacked my friends.

Zarkof continues: Be warned. The crypt is a very dangerous place for those who don't know what they seek and what to avoid. This map shows how you must travel to get there.

He pulls a parchment out of his tunic and hands it over to you.

Zarkof says: I have been searching a long time for someone brave enough to continue my research.

He smiles sadly for a while and then continues.
Zarkof says: I do this, because I want revenge. Kill whatever killed my friends for me. With a deep sigh he leans back and drinks his beer. He then leaves through the door.

Step 4: You should now have a map in your inventory.
        Zarkof's Map

This is Zarkofs map:
         MMMMMMMMMMMM
       MMM R M F-F-*M
      MM   R M | | |M
     M *-* R M F-*-W-

   M  MMR*-*-* M F-FM
   MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
It looks light.

Step 5: <stand; u; 2e; unlock door; open door; s; close door; sleep>
You lay down in your bed and close your eyes. After a short while you feel your worn out body relax between the comfy sheets and you fall into sleep. After sleeping well the entire night you step down the stairs, return the key to Egon and go out into the stables to borrow a horse he promised to lend you. Having both the map and a horse you feel ready to ride out on the plains and start searching for Sarkath's crypt.

Step 9: <get all; open coffin>
Sarkath Khan charges up from the coffin!!!!

Step 10: <say free>
Sarkath Khan hisses: The other half of my spirit was captured by the mage and I can sense that it remains with him, even in death. I do not know how this can be. Perhaps he carried some powerful artifact, hidden upon him.

Sarkath Khan hisses: While they buried me in this chamber, I do not know where they buried Khor-Thok. And as he was a traitor, they most likely left his grave unmarked.

Sarkath Khan hisses: Wherever his burial place, should you find it and find the missing portion to my spirit, I will reward you greatly.

Step 11: Find Khor-Thok's grave (grave moves, so if you found a new location not listed below, please email) -
Location 1 - <se; s; sw; s; out; 6e; 2n; dig>

Location 2 - <se; s; sw; s; out; 5e; 2n; 2e; dig>
You begin digging into the ground and notice the dirt to be fairly loose.

Step 12: Continue digging - <dig>
You continue digging into the dirt. Something is clearly buried deep beneath this portion of the ground.

Step 13: Dig some more - <dig>
Digging further into the ground, the head of the shovel makes a thumping sound against something. You should probably keep digging.

Step 14: This should be the last time you have to dig - <dig>
You successfully dig out what look to be the remains of a human long since passed.

__________________________
An aged skeleton

The skeleton which remains of an apparently once-human body now lays staggered along the ground. As there's no coffin or marking, it must have received a rather unceremonious burial. Oddly, you think you see something sparkle in it.
It looks very heavy.
__________________________

Step 15: <search skeleton; get crystal>
A large crystal A diamond-like crystal, surprisingly large for its quality. As you gaze at it further, you notice a faint green shimmer.
It looks light.

Step 16: Bring the crystal to Sarkath Khan -
From Location 1 - <2s; 6w; enter; n; ne; n; nw; give crystal to ghost>

From Location 2 - <2w; 2s; 5w; enter; n; ne; n; nw; give crystal to ghost>
Sarkath Khan hisses: You have found it! Quickly, shatter it so my soul may be released!

The ghost returns the crystal to you.

Step 17: Free his soul - <shatter crystal>
You throw the crystal with force at the ground, and it shatters upon contact. Suddenly the room is flooded with a bright light!

A voice in your mind: 'Thank you mortal. You have released me from the torments of unlife!'
The voice pauses briefly, then continues: 'Whatever you find of my worldly possessions are for you to take. It is small thanks for releasing me.'

Step 18 (optional): <get brazier; light brazier>
___________________________
A Golden Brazier (lighted)

It's a brazier made entirely of gold. It's about 1 meter long and it feels quite well balanced. Perhaps you could wield it??
It is lit, and fills the room with a pleasant glow.
It looks light.
___________________________

Note about this item:
The gold brazier runs out of fuel.
The sudden difference in light makes you drop the brazier!


This will happen if it's lit and you're not wielding it. As long as you keep an eye out for this message (or make an action/trigger off of it, you can <get brazier; light brazier> again.

DONE!

Get back to Fantasy: <se; s; sw; s; out; 7e; 2n; path; 11s; 4e; enter; 12e; portal>
