Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 3.01 – Grand Nopening

Good help is hard to find”

-Anonymous

The dungeon’s old and doesn’t care,

It drops the spiders in your hair.

But the dungeon’s web is far more great,

You’ll hunt for gold but find your fate.”

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.13 – Interlude – Dungeon Thoughts

“‘Rule #37 – Every dungeon is unique. They may even be beautiful. This does not make them any less dangerous. See Rule #1’

-50 Rules for Dungeon Divers”

It had been little more than a week since Sevso found his life irretrievably altered. His new titles, along with the accompanying AP, would have been more than enough. The fifteen pieces of dungeon gold meant that he could get everything he had ever wanted. And the life debt turned everything he had gained to ashes.

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.12

It took Exsan a few long moments, as Caden waited impatiently, to reply.

What talk?

Having people die in the dungeon is not the only way to get survival points right?

Yes.

Right. Not much of a talker.

How else do we get survival points?

Prey come, they leave. Get points. Survive other dungeons, get points. Quests give points. Special things. Continue reading “Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.12”

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.11

Caden had felt something inside him gradually shift over the last hour. Apparently touching someone else’s soul had consequences. He looked at the various traps he had created with a mixture of pride and horror. He would hate to deploy some of these against anyone, but he honestly did not know what kind of power to expect from the people who came to the dungeon. Touching Exsan’s soul had apparently given him a portion of his ruthlessness temporarily. That was not entirely a bad thing; the traps he had created were effective looking. However, now he could see that his focus had been stolen away towards the lethal end of the spectrum. There were an entire slew of traps that were non-lethal and could be very effective. Water, mud, wind, nets, he had so many ways to delay and trip up an opponent. Continue reading “Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.11”

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.9 – Soul-Mates

“The gods are masters of souls. Your actions in life are a mirror of your soul which even as it reflects is altered. In death you are drawn to whomever you are most closely aligned with. Heaven and hell are both the same, they are simply the people you spend eternity with. Be who you want to live with forever.”

  • Ecer the Wise, Prophet of Otga

Caden had been working on the entry cave for longer than he thought. Between his own mana and Exsan’s, they were close to being able to level again. He decided now would be a good time to meditate again. The impact of his soul was not so fresh and he was ready to see it again. Hopefully he would learn more about his own soul. He was not sure what it meant that he could examine it now, but he knew he had a strong affinity for soul skills and he would be a fool not to use it.

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.7 – Expecting Company

“Rule # 1 – The dungeon is trying to kill you, don’t die. Dead adventurers don’t spend gold.”

  • 50 Rules For Dungeon Divers

For a moment Caden was struck dumb with surprise, too shocked to even think a proper reply.

Exsan?

No. I Exsan. Who you?

No, I meant… never-mind. I am Caden.

You Caden. I Exsan. Core Exsan Caden. Caden mine. Continue reading “Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.7 – Expecting Company”

Saga of the Soul Dungeon – 2.6 – Home Study

“The limits of my language means the limits of my world.”

  • Ludwig Wittgenstein

Wow. Of all the things that had happened to Caden recently this might be the most important. He had died and moved to a new world. And now… he could see what had actually been moved. He knew he had a soul, simply because his status page said so, but it was not the same as seeing it. It had been the most beautiful, intricate thing he had ever seen, and he had only scratched the surface. For this alone he wished he could go back home. How would the world change if he could show everyone that they had a soul. That there was more out there. That they were a beautiful intricate creation.
