315 Eidengal Gates

    [You have died.  There is no death penalty between levels 125 and 127]

    Nix hovered over his corpse, choosing not to recover while he waited for Tess to target him.

    "Ready for some serious Healer love?"

    [You've been offered a Ressurection by Tess.  Do you accept?]


    "Something wrong, Nix?"  Fajii's cool hand rested on his on the back of his neck.

    Objective: The Entrance to the

    the city has been locked for centuries.

    During those years, the Key has passed

    through the hands of many powerful

    beings. Search out and destroy the

    strongest of these.

    [High-level creatures will drop the Key randomly]

    Nix read the messages as they scrolled across his hud.  "No, it's nothing to worry about."

    /Inferno: Jun Li: Take a short break, but stay close.

    Ronnie moved between the two, placing an arm around both their shoulders.  "Hungry?  How about a sandwich?"

    Nix noticed her positioning. "A Ronnie sandwich, right?"

    "Dang it, Nix. Why spoil the punchline?"  Ronnie's dark smile didn't waver, but she lowered her voice a bit.  "I've been sleeping with Fajii for a while now."

    Fajii nodded when she felt Nix's glance.  "I shared my sleeping bag with her."

    Ronnie sighed and left without saying a word; she targeted Jun Li and Semmi, who were talking a few meters away. She inserted herself between them and placed her tanned arms on their shoulders.  "Hey, girls.  Feel like a sandwich?"

    Jun Li nodded.  "God, yes.  I'm starving."

    "I could eat," Semmi agreed.

    The Dark archer lowered her voice and whispered something.

    Fajii accepted a drink from Nix's canteen while watching the interaction. "The heat must be getting to them; I've never seen Junie so red."

    Nix shrugged noncommittally.

    Fajii handed him back his canteen and slid a hand through his arm. "Ronnie's very friendly."

    "On that, we can agree."  Nix studied the path ahead; in the distance, he could see a golden gate that connected to a formidable white stone wall.  Between them and the distant gate, there was nothing but sand.

    /Inferno: Pon: Break open the loot Nix!  Quit being so stingy.

    /Inferno: Nix: Hey Junie, let's go to the gate first.

    /Inferno: Jun Li: It's too late to start the next Quest, I think.

    /Inferno: Nix: Not when you already have the Key.

    Nix linked the item in Guild chat.

    Key of Eidengal [Opens the Gates to Eidengal]

    Nix summoned Nightmare and opened her up; Jun Li had implied that her Dire Cat might be faster than his demon horse, but that race was over before it started.

    He pulled up in front of the gate and turned toward the following group.  Fajii and Flash were a hundred meters behind, Junie was right on their heels.

    Nix patted Nightmare's shoulder.  "Good girl."

    The gates were twenty feet in height, and they were attached on either side to the white stone wall.  Nix tried to peak through the gate, but it was hazed out.

    "What gives?"  Ronnies face pressed into the bars.  "How come we can't see?  Fog of War, maybe?"

    Nix waited until the rest of Inferno gathered, and then he held up the Key.  "We might be opening three chests in a moment since this  is Part V."

    Nix inserted the Key into the gate and turned slowly; there was a loud clicking sound followed by both gates swinging wide open.

    Welcome to the City of Eidengal

    The street leading away from the gate was paved with yellow brick and led directly into several large flower gardens that were breathtaking in its display of red, orange, yellow, and blue flowers.  There were round, multi-tiered fountains that sprayed water several feet in the air.  On the far side of the garden, dozens of buildings sprouted out of the perfectly laid out network of streets.  The buildings were mostly of the two-story variety, but a few towers rose majestically into the sky.  It looked exactly like a city that was at the height of its power; only it was completely empty.

    Nix walked into the gardens and stopped in front of the nearest fountain.  A small square platform displayed a silver chest.

    /Inferno: Semmi: Okay, I wasn't expecting this.

    /Inferno: Nix: I know some of us are tired.  Let's open...

    The Armory of this beautiful city is

    The Key to open the Armory has been

    lost to the sands of time. There is a chance

    that one of the terrifying creatures of the

    Great Desert posses it.

    [High-level creatures will drop the Key randomly]

    Nix stepped onto the square platform to open the chest.

    [Do you wish to return to your binding point?]

    "No."  Nix dragged the chest to the edge of the fountain and sat down.

    /Inferno: Semmi: This place is amazing!

    /Inferno: Fajii: I wonder if I can take some of these flowers...

    /Inferno: Pon: Focus guys, time for loot!

    Nix waved everyone closer, one by one, they stepped onto the platform and crowded around him.

    /Inferno: Jun Li: The platform is a binding-point portal?

    /Inferno: Nix: Looks that way.

    Nix placed two more chests on the platform next to the first.  "Let's go in order; this is the Thornwood chest.

    However, it is broken and incomplete.

    Nix removed both items from his Inventory and placed them on the platform.  "Takers?"

    Semmi's smile could have melted butter.  "I'll take that barrel, Nix."

    "Done.  I'll take the puppet since it's useless to anyone else."  Nix pulled the Desert King

    chest closer and opened it up.

    Nix whistled, "Shapeshifters. Who wants?"

    /Inferno: Pon: I'll take the Snake ring.

    /Inferno: Semmi: No, you won't.

    /Inferno: Pon: Right... I'll take the Scorpion ring.

    [Whisper: Wind to Nix] Heh... Whipped bastard.

    /Inferno: Tess: I'll take that Croc King ring.

    /Inferno: Sharl: I'll have the Snake ring.

    /Inferno: Gypsy: Can I have the Lion ring?

    /Inferno: Nix:  Come and get them.

    Nix tossed the rings to their new owners before turning to the last chest.  "This one is for finishing the Eidengal Gate Quest.

    /Inferno: Floyd: Can I have that armor, Nix?

    /Inferno: Nix: Yes.

    /Inferno: Ronnie:  I'll take the Spider Amulet.  I was born to be a Spider Queen.

    /Inferno: Semmi: Didn't Shipwright Vy have one of those in Izzin?

    /Inferno: Jun Li: Who volunteers to take the boat back?
