Chapter 8

The first thing Beor noticed as he ploughed into the Wyrdness was that he felt his limbs were bursting with energy. So much so that he felt if he did not use up all the energy his body might start to tear itself apart. On his first day he found a strange throne. Sitting upon it he felt magic surging into his mind, although at the same time his body was wracked with pain.

Going further into Tuathan, Beor found that food no longer noursihed him, though he had cravings to eat gold and jewels. From then on Beor subsisted on his wealth alone, which fortunately Beor had in abundance. In one confrontation Beor was brought to the brink of death and forced to abandon much of the equipment he had amassed so far in his adventures. Tuathan was costing Beor dearly yet he had no choice but to continue.

Just as Beor started to loose hope, he came across a human built cottage on a platform raised above the Wyrdness. This safe refuge must have been built by a previous expedition into Tuathan and allowed Beor the time to recover from the ordeals he had been through so far.

Pressing on into Tuathan Beor now found that if killed his body entered a restorative state, and the nightmares around him caused him to keep having epiphanies on the meaning of existence itself. Seemingly now unable to die or go insane, Beor took the time for more thorough exploration. In one giant building he found a large collection of Fore-Dweller art. Contemplating the art made Beor’s head hurt and his eyes bled. Perhaps it was best not to puch the exploration too much.

Soon after Beor found that his chest wound caused him great pain and his could no longer recover from the wounds he sustained in combat. Not even the restorative power of the Grail helped. This proved dangerous as he found  field of life-size clay statues. On closer inspection they were all copies of Beor himself and he was forced to fight his way clear of them.

Now nearing the heart of Tuathan, Beor found that physical injury caused his delusions to worsen, while witnessing horrors caused wounds to manifest on his body. Beor found a mad Knight working a forge. Beor defeated him and then used his own blood to forge a powerful relic in the forge. As twisted as Tuathan was Beor now found himself in essentially and immortal state, as long as his wealth lasted for him to feed on. Rather than push on to the centre of Tuathan Beor continued exploring. However as time passed Beor found that his very essence had started to dissolve away into the Wyrdness. Realising he had been foolish to linger, he pressed on to the centre of Tuathan.

In the centre of Tuathan Beorfound a perfect replica of Kamelot, built upside down and suspended from a rock outcropping. This must surely be his destination. Approaching the gate Beor found many dead Fore-Dwellers. They had been killed recently. As he attempted to access the throne room one of the Fore-Dwellers rose up, not dead but badly wounded. Even so it proved a tough fight but Beor narrowly triumphed. The throne had a Grail shaped alcove above it, so Beor placed the Grail there – completing the Lady’s quest. Exploring the castle further Beor found a grate library. Intrigued by what he might learn, Beor was surprised to find all the books were in fact fake. Beor chided himself for being shocked – by now he should expect anything in Tuathan.

The last place to search was the chamber of the Order. As he approached Beor could hear that something was in there, wailing in frustration. In the room stood a giant. As it turned to face Beor he recognised the giant as none other than King Arthur – somehow re-animated. Behind him was Excalibur, buried to the hilt in a rock. Evidently Arthur could not retrieve it. He gestured for Beor to release the sword. Before Beor could do so two figures joined them in the room – Morgaine and Sir Gaheris. Morgaine mocks Arthur, but Beor knew his duty was to his King so he lunged for Excalibur. Morgaine cries out that to retrieve the sword will plunge Kamelot into Wyrdness and undo all humanity – but Beor trusted his King.

Gaheris interceded before the sword could be fully drawn, and Beor cut Gaheris down. Morgaine was unperturbed and used Wyrdness to resurrect Gaheris. Beor bested Gaheris for a second time. Morgaine used a spell to retreat, so Beor returned to Excalibur and finished drawing it. Kamelot immediately began to melt into the Wyrdness. Arthur gestured to the door – it was time for Beor to leave. As Beor left, Arthur remained behind to be claimed by the Wyrdness.
