Remain positive and upbeat.
Macross' thoughts drifted to a social function he had attended in Verbobonc an eternity ago. The new guru that was all the rage in town was some sort of positive thinker charlatan. "If you remain positive and upbeat you will only draw positive and upbeat people to you." Well clearly there was a flaw in the thinking. If I only think of sex and perverted girls at the Women's Divinities College next to the Cathedral of Verbobonc, did that mean I would attract precisely those sort of girls to me? I think not. By Oliddamara and Cuthbert's Cudgel we left 6000 gold pieces behind in the frozen North where we aren't likely to back again. Of course, if I just think of more money, then it will come my way.

Macross disciplined his mind and his thoughts. This adventure was about to heat up and he needed all his attention on the task at hand. Exploring lost ruins was ALWAYS dangerous and tedious. What made it worthwhile was the magic and gold you sometimes found. This time, he'd have an epic chance to make some history.

Somehow, the thoughts of treasure made him positive and upbeat!

Scribbled in the Margins of Mazian's Spellbook...
Is it the fog that has transported us to some other realm, or is it that we walked unknowing through some portal in the swamp? It matters little, for we are certainly lost...

The gypsies told us nothing clear, only that there is a village nearby -- Marias d'Tarascon -- and perhaps a distant city named Port d'Elhour.

The village is oppressed by some looming darkness...tied perhaps to this poor, witless fellow ("Luc?" We do not know) that speaks only in broken rhyme.

We must "beware his blood..." I remain convinced this refers not to Luc's actual flesh and blood, but to his brother, perhaps, or even worse, multiple family members of his. We are aware that they owned a farm or plantation, in addition to a seemingly shored-up manor house on the edge of the village...

Burials here in turn, and the missing bodies of the victims of great bloodshed and injury suggests the dead walk, though it's hard to tell if they fall under the power of a greater evil, or if they are simply cursed by their vicinity to this doomed village to walk in unlife...

A murderer is apparent; Amelia's vision/nightmare suggests our murderer is an entity other than the walking dead, but I cannot hope to guess whether it is purposely making the bodies reanimate or if this is an unintended side effect...

Luc's reaction to the Manor House of his family suggests there is something to the idea that his family is dangerous, but the constable of the town could be an unintended roadblock to us as he tries bravely (futile though it may be!) to maintain some kind of law and order in this town. We are outsiders; they won't take well to us simply busting down doors and looking to right wrongs rather rashly...
