"And you are absolutely certain this is safe?", the CM asked with a doubtful look at the bottle on the table. The question lingers in the room for a few seconds before the elderly, slightly crazy looking man nods repeatedly and lifts a finger. "Safe? Safe??? This is a masterpiece! It will make you stronger, give you more endurance, more resistance to ANY possible negative effect anyone could possibly throw at you AND..." The man leans closer in conspiring manner and whispers " think about the jealousy of the other CMs when they find out YOU were the first one to try it and proof its benefits!"
The candle light flickers and the liquid in the bottle reflects blue sparkles, looking very safe and very tasty.
Licking the lips, the CM's eyes search contact with the mad scientist. "But it IS absolutely safe, right?"
The elderly man chuckles and raises both hands, sounding very sincere "Absolutely! I tested it myself!"
"Fine then" says the CM and grabs for the bottle, emptying it in one big gulp. Only a few moments passed before the light of the candle went out, turning the room pitch black, would it not be for the wide open door banging against the wall as the elderly man runs out into the wild, screaming like a maniac and fleeing in terror. From the dark depths of the room raises a frenzied howl and dark shadows spread out and grasp for the daylight sun outside. Then nothing but silence...
Seriously, what was I thinking? Fellow Taboreans, this is a time of need! It was only with great hesitation that I agreed to join into the experiment of this old man, who promised his potion to be of great benefit for all adventurers alike, and who was I to pass out on that chance? Now here I am, look at me... I am merely a shadow of my former self! And even worse... I am trapped in this evil frenzy, unable to make it stop. If no-one comes to my aid, I will turn into a willing-less servant of evil and bring havoc to Taborea! Aid me! Find me at the Lake of Magic Mist* in the time from 11th September until 17th September* and end my torment. Only by defeating the evil I have become can the cursed effect of the potion be lifted!
To make matters worse, all kind of evil spawns from the Underworld seem to be attracted by my new appearance. So be aware when you find me, it will not be just me you will be facing!
And to shout proof of the danger that this potion is, capture a picture showing my hideous change and show it to everyone on our forums until the 24th of September to warn them of the mad scientists twisted tongue and promises! We will select one winning picture from the english community and reward your efforts with one Extra-Large Surprise Bag.
