    I also talked to Tomruk The Ruddy in Drefia.

    “Always speak in riddles. If they deign to speak to you, that is.”.  Very interesting answer to Shadow Pupil. Which both The Gate Keeper and Oblivion are.

    Not sure if he has any connection otherwise.

    I can’t find anything on Elryed The Sanguine, his response to Blood Hand.


    14:14 Myskonaut [318]: hi
    14:14 Tomruk The Ruddy: Hello there. Blood donation, yes? Get in line.

    14:49 Myskonaut [318]: bye
    14:49 Tomruk The Ruddy: My pleasure, I assure you. Farewell!

    14:51 Myskonaut [318]: farewell
    14:51 Tomruk The Ruddy: Hmm? Oh yes, farewell, farewell.

    14:14 Myskonaut [318]: name
    14:14 Tomruk The Ruddy: You will address me with my full name: Tomruk The Ruddy.

    14:15 Myskonaut [318]: job
    14:15 Tomruk The Ruddy: Are you joking? Does the colour of my robes tell you anything? I’m a very important researcher!

    14:15 Myskonaut [318]: research
    14:15 Tomruk The Ruddy: A fellow student of the dark arts, eh? Well, I specialise in the various conductive abilities of blood, you see. …
    14:15 Tomruk The Ruddy: Perhaps you had read my treatise…no? Well, it’ll revolutionise practical necromancy, let me tell you!

    14:16 Myskonaut [318]: blood
    14:16 Tomruk The Ruddy: Ah, the sweet sap of life, the nectar of the gods, the river of emotions, the… <ahem> best thing there is.

    14:16 Myskonaut [318]: necromancer
    14:16 Tomruk The Ruddy: Backward bunch. Incredibly old-fashioned approach to blood and narrow-minded about it.

    14:16 Myskonaut [318]: shadow pupil
    14:16 Tomruk The Ruddy: Huh. Always speak in riddles. If they deign to speak to you, that is. Paint strange pseudo-animals on the floor and prefer ashes to blood.

    14:17 Myskonaut [318]: priestess
    14:17 Tomruk The Ruddy: Not much to do with them, more’s the pity. Beautiful, lively things.

    14:17 Myskonaut [318]: blood priest
    14:17 Tomruk The Ruddy: It takes practice, skill and dedication, but you might get there if you try!

    14:17 Myskonaut [318]: blood hand
    14:17 Tomruk The Ruddy: Do you wish to join our ranks, talk to brother Elryed The Sanguine when he’s back from his errand.

    14:18 Myskonaut [318]: tibia / king
    14:18 Tomruk The Ruddy: Breeds supplies for the blood god.

    14:20 Myskonaut [318]: tibianus
    14:20 Tomruk The Ruddy: Well, someone has to sort out all those peasants’ concerns, I believe.

    14:21 Myskonaut [318]: ghouls
    14:21 Tomruk The Ruddy: It can take some that way. Giving in to their hunger. Not much use then.

    14:21 Myskonaut [318]: skeletons
    14:21 Tomruk The Ruddy: Of what interest would those sad things be? Not a drop of blood in them!

    14:22 Myskonaut [318]: drefia
    14:22 Tomruk The Ruddy: Well, it has its merits, yes. But I contemplate a study trip to the Plains of Havoc. Broadens your vision!

    14:23 Myskonaut [318]: army
    14:23 Tomruk The Ruddy: Shepherd dogs to their king. Don’t care myself, frankly. There are worthier things.

    14:26 Myskonaut [318]: undead
    14:26 Tomruk The Ruddy: Hrm, yes, technically you could say that. Research has advanced a bit, so the concept is outdated.

    14:28 Myskonaut [318]: scrolls
    14:28 Tomruk The Ruddy: Plenty of those here in Drefia. Got one myself, as a matter of fact. Handed down to me. Quite old and torn.

    14:35 Myskonaut [318]: vampires
    14:35 Tomruk The Ruddy: Ah, fascinating creatures. Unfortunately, I had a… professional misunderstanding with a viscount, and now, our relations are somewhat strained.

    14:37 Myskonaut [318]: zombie
    14:37 Tomruk The Ruddy: Good harriers for fresh supplies, but you have to keep them from gnawing at their find.
