    Spindle
    the Spider

    Spindle was deep in a book titled, "Dungeon Denizen's Refresher: Spell of Haste", and she looked over it with a slight squint as Ryan the Rogue entered.

    "Hey there. You know what our new Keeper wants us to research? Or are we free to do whatever we want"

    The Spider issued a deep hacking laugh before responding in is wispy voice.

    '"'Who are we, but mere mortal minions, to even guess at the drives and desires of those so mighty? That being said, you can't go amiss with a Speed spell in my book. Say, whats a strapping young lad like you doing in a musty old library like this, anyway? Shouldn't you be out enjoying yourself - working up a sweat in the training room... maybe impressing those impressionable young lady-rogues?'"' Spindle winked and not subtly either; winking subtly is hard with eight eyes.

    Her voice took on a faintly sterner undertone - a tone which for the vast majority of people anywhere resonated with half-buried childhood memories of being scolded for playing up. '"'...better bathe after that to, young man. If any of your lot start stinking up the Lair, mark me that I'll know who is to blame. We have to sleep in there to, you know. '"'

    Spindle sniffled and returned to her book.

    --Nice enough, that Rogue... but a little bit more respect for his elders mightn't go astray. Gods know, I'm probably old enough to be his great great great great great great great great great great great great grandmother by now.--

    Animus noticed he'd need to keep his gold rate up, or else he would run into trouble quite soon. So, he only built a 3x3 Casino in the newly dug out room. The rest would be finished later, when he could afford it well enough.

    Animus had discovered that some gold is aimed towards the south. He instructed his Imps to dig a path to the south.

    A spider has entered your dungeon.

    Animus looked who it is; it was the elderly spider Spindle. Another one capable of research.

    The spider then went to the Library and started researching the speed spell. It wasn't of priority, but it was certainly useful, so Animus didn't bother interrupting her in her research.

    Then he noticed the rogue, Ryan, also coming in into the Library. He went to Spindle and asked her about the research.

    "Hey there. You know what our new Keeper wants us to research? Or are we free to do whatever we want"

    The spider gave her response, but then Animus himself interjected.

    "Researchers... it's good to see you being at work. And it is good to see you, Spindle, taking the initiative to start researching the Speed Up spell, it's definitively an useful asset to have. But, the current plans for research were to get the Workshop done first. So, Ryan, I'd prefer if you go research that one first. Spindle... it is up to you to decide whether you'll continue researching Speed Up, or if you want to aid in getting the Workshop done sooner."

    Animus observed his dungeon further, noticing some of his other creatures working hard in the Training Room.



    Keeper Animus

    Summary: Built a 3x3 Casino, and told his researching staff, particularly Spindle and Ryan, what to research.

    WORKSHOP progress: 27%
    SPEED UP progress: 20%

    Gold: 9250 (+0, -6750)

    One of the currently researching spiders started to laugh before she gave Ryan an answer.

    '"'Who are we, but mere mortal minions, to even guess at the drives and desires of those so mighty? '"'

    "Does that mean yes or..."

    '"'"That being said, you can't go amiss with a Speed spell in my book.'

    "Alright then. Thanks I guess."

    '"'
    "Say, whats a strapping young lad like you doing in a musty old library like this, anyway? Shouldn't you be out enjoying yourself - working up a sweat in the training room... maybe impressing those impressionable young lady-rogues?
    '"'


    "Ehm... well I don't like training rooms that much anyways. How can you become better with punching motionless dummies the entire time? I prefer to not spend that much time there, fights in an arena are much better to try out new tactics. And I always liked history, so I became a pretty decent reader I think. It's better for the dungeon anyways if I do some research instead of hitting the dummied unmotivated. And about the latter... first there aren't any other rogues besides an annoying douchebag here and secondly I wouldn't constrain myself on other rogues. Never liked these classifications anyways, in the end I'm still a human if I'm an archer or a rogue."

    After that he already wanted to grab a book as the spider begun to speak again, this time with a weird undertone which reminded him quite of what Pel was able to do with his voice to sound convincing.

    '"'...better bathe after that to, young man. If any of your lot start stinking up the Lair, mark me that I'll know who is to blame. We have to sleep in there to, you know. '"'

    "Uhm... okay." What the hell? Before he could think what he should say the Keeper addressed him and the others in the library.

    "Researchers... it's good to see you being at work. And it is good to see you, Spindle, taking the initiative to start researching the Speed Up spell, it's definitively an useful asset to have. But, the current plans for research were to get the Workshop done first. So, Ryan, I'd prefer if you go research that one first. "

    Ryan nodded, not in the mood to talk anymore. He felt like he hadn't slept like weeks, though it was only since he left Crystallbarrow.

    Alright, so no Speed. Not that it's that much more interesting, but at least in these books are parts about history. By the way, did I drop my name yet? I don't think... Ah yes, Pel came screaming it like an idiot in the training room...

    Ryan then grabbed himself a few books about Workshops and leaned himself against one of the shelves while beginning to read.

    Hm, maybe my own Speed spell could be useful here? Anyways, only one way to find out... he then casted speed and continued to read, contrary of what he expected he was actually faster than usually. Though that didn't help him to keep his eyes open, fighting against the tiredness was still something he had to do actively on his own.

    Xerina, the Dark Elf

    Xerina heard Keeper Animus' message to all of Larquidos' former minions as she was finishing her climb through the Portal. While she was surprised with this turn of events, she was more impressed with Keeper Animus' cunning.

    "This does not change much.", she thought to herself, "I do not have any fond memories of my employment to Keeper Larquidos. A change of employer might be a good thing.".

    Xerina proceeded to the Dungeon Heart.

    "I am Xerina, a well-trained sniper.", she introduced herself to the Keeper, "I hath thought of changing my employee, so thy trickery hath in fact been a blessing. I shall work for thee for the time being.".

    Having said that, Xerina left to unpack her stuff in the Lair.

    --Summary: Xerina listened to Keeper's introduction, introduced herself, then left to make her Lair.

    Dranton, the Beetle

    Dranton's climb up the Portal's wall was much more stable than his last. After all, he was more experienced at it now. But when he reached the top an unknown voice spoke to him, claiming to have tricked his former masters' minions into coming into his domain.

    "What do I do?", Dranton thought, trying his hardest not to panick, "Do I go back and try to warn my former master? Do I stay here and serve the new master? Wait... My old master is probably quite mad at me for not fighting that dragon which tried to kill him... Perhaps I should stick around here? If this new master turns out to be better than the last, I'll stay for good. But if he doesn't, I'm sure my old master would appreciate any information I could bring him about the one who robbed him of part of his army."

    After this, Dranton finally regained his composure and managed to speak to the Keeper: "Hail, new master. My name is Dranton. I will serve you well in your battles."

    After this Dranton headed to the Lair in order to make his new home, all the while attempting to shield parts of his mind from his new master, so he wouldn't find out about his previous cowardice, nor his undecided loyalties.

    --Summary: Dranton decided to serve the Keeper, introduced himself, then went to make a home.

    Spindle
    the Spider

    Spindle had just started reading again when the Keeper interjected, issueing his orders for the Library.

    "Researchers... it's good to see you being at work. And it is good to see you, Spindle, taking the initiative to start researching the Speed Up spell, it's definitively an useful asset to have. But, the current plans for research were to get the Workshop done first. So, Ryan, I'd prefer if you go research that one first. Spindle... it is up to you to decide whether you'll continue researching Speed Up, or if you want to aid in getting the Workshop done sooner."

    She set aside "Dungeon Denizen's Refresher: Spell of Haste", and moved over to the Workshop section where she climbed up the bookcase and pulled out a book between her pincers.

    --If Animus wants a workshop, who am I a humble old spider to argue? The wills and whims of Keepers are there own... dear-oh-dear, dark deities know he'll only attract those uncouth beastly trolls, or worse, bile demons. This place'll stink like a foul cesspit it will.--

    Instead of climbing back down the wall-inset bookcase, the spider climbed up to the roof and scuried across it until she reached one of the centre book cases - she dropped down gracefully and began to read from there.

    Marteal stops attacking for a few seconds, with a thoughtful look on his face. After a few seconds, he walks back to the Lair, grabs his book, and scribbles something down in his Forging Manual. After some scribbling, he gets up and sprints to the Training Room. He stops and peeks in the new room, the Casino, and stares for a few seconds. After a while, he heads to the Training Room, moving too fast to cause the ground to shake. Upon his entry to the room, he starts.....repeatedly head-butting a Training Dummy over and over again, with no reason in it what-so-ever.

    Pel finally withdrew his weapons as he begun to get hungry. He decided to take a look at the whole dungeon while grabbing some food.

    And I still have to set up my lair... don't want to carry all that stuff around.


    The rogue entered the hatchery and grabbed two chickens. he broke their necks and ate them raw while making his way over to the lair. Amused he thought how most humans would refuse to eat their food raw, but he knwe that survival was the key. And it was better to be accustomed to the taste of raw meat before someone had to eat it that way. Pel wouldn't spill it out that day and would have an advantage.

    Shortly before he reached the lair another rogue rushed out of the room and nearly knocked him over.

    "Bastard!"
    Pel shouted before entering the lair. he nodded into the direction of the new company before getting to his work. It didn't take him long to set up his things, so he had plenty of time to explore the dungeon before he would have to return to his duties. The rogue walked down the entire hallway with his hands behind his back. The first two rooms that came across him were the portal and the heart chamber, in which direction he nodded before he moved on. The next thing he saw was the library were two spiders and Ryan wasted their time with reading. To his left was a big treasury which he entered and then left through the other exit, but not without taking a short look at all the gold Animus had. After that he noticed a casino to his pleasure.

    Aww, that makes it almost too easy.

    "Hey Animus, what do you think about a free round in the casino to raise moral? I could skip next payday for that! "

    Eventually he followed the last hallway back to the training room where he started to train again, ignoring the orc and surprisingly the human. Though he may be an extremist and would normally take every chance to interact with humans he had no intention in talking with idiots, at least when they acted like idiots to him. With that he drew his sword and started with his training, superior techniques compared to the ones he tried before.

    A skittering was heard from the Portal, it became louder and louder...

    A spider has entered your dungeon!

    There stood a slightly large spider covered in some strange metal, wearing a odd hat that seems to be wearing down.

    "Can't believe they left me there while I was resting..." Ivan mumbled to himself, as he crawls out of the Portal.

    Ivan looks forward and sees the Dungeon Heart, but what he also notices that the gems within the floor is yellow instead of red. Ivan was confused by this, but he decides to brush that aside for now, he'll be reunited with his first keeper later on. Ivan skitters to the Dungeon Heart.


    "Hello Keeper Animus. I am Ivan." Ivan just plainly said as he then leaves the Dungeon Heart room and goes to the Lair.

    Once at the Lair Ivan made his lair, not before Ivan tipping his hat to Xerina as he passes her in the Lair, in the middle, the same ol' hole in the ground with some crystals sticking out of it. Ivan goes into his lair for a moment, and comes back out. With nothing to currently do, specially with no orders, Ivan merely rests at the top of his lair.

    A deep, raspy voice echoes from the Portal.

    "I do not serve those who fool their own possible minions. Nor will I serve the same Keeper twice. You will not receive my aid this time, should you survive, Animus."

    The presence soon disappears.

    Spindle
    the Spider

    Spindle was studying for the Workshop, cross-checking the efficency ratios of various room sizes between two sources.

    --Oh dear... It seems I'll have to get this misunderstanding cleaned up. That isn't right...--

    The spider pulled out another pile of books and began an extensive crosscheck of the figures, tracing back sources and look for differences between the room designs to divine the most efficent workshop layout.
