Tygo Proves That Lightning CAN Strike Twice…
(Shard, Ilithi: 30 Akroeg 352)
Aye,… I have a story to spin if’n you care to listen to me blather on. One evening, after my love had fallen asleep at our home in Leth Deriel, I was restless. So, I strapped on me Elven Longsword and headed on up to the Dryads. After being run from several times, I got fed up.
So, without waking the little woman, I decided to go to Shard. I have only been there once, before that and I didnt know the way, except that it was south of Leth. I met a nice gentleman named Marccus. He agreed to lead me there. So, I followed naturally.
He dropped me in the War Mage/Empath Guild and I thanked him. I went out and saw a fellow Ranger standing outside the Guild. I began to ask him directions to some critters that I could kill. Shortly after, I was summarily struck by lightning.
Thank the Gods, I lived and came out fairly well for the wear. But being the arrogant fool that I can be, I looked up at the cloud and laughed at it. Before I could even twitch, I was struck by the lightning again.
Needless to say, I was dead at that point. The kind Ranger drug me south and an even kinder Paladin glyphed me. I regret to say that I do not remember their names. (Blushes)
Well, the moral of my story is if you get hit by lightning and have the good fortune to live, RUN.
