|Three voices and a harp groan in melodic unison.
"Another one of the bloody things?"
A visage looms through the darkness at the end of the passage, a horned stone head illuminated by the familiar blueness burning within its orifices.
"Veni huc!" The voice is just as familiar in its grinding tones.
Torches burst into life, banishing the shadows and bathing the creature with orange radiance. The light reveals two doorways, each barred by a portcullis. It discloses something else as well...
"Strange," Dao says.
"That's... unusual," Medea agrees.
"Never heard of one with a sodding body before."
The demonic head, formed of grey stone, is attached to an equally hoart and fiendish body. Pteropine wings unfurl from its sculpted muscular frame, creaking and groaning with each movement of their petrified span. A long tail flicks on the floor, evoking the same noises -- sending an unpleasant grating shudder through their bones. Its hands and feet end in onyx claws that glimmer in the torchlight.
It speaks again, at greater length this time.
"Let me bleeding guess... It's threatening to kill us if we don't answer its blooming riddle?"
Dao makes a sound that reminds the women of a housecat's purr.
"Ask it how it will kill us," he says.
Gnome and elf stare at him.
Medea shrugs her shoulders.
"Quomodo tu occidis?"
"Unguibus meis et dentes meis," the gargoyle replies.
"It kills with its teeth and claws."
The shaman's purr deepens.
"So its powers are based on physical violence," he says. "That means-"
"We can just smash the tosser to bits instead of answering its sodding riddle!"
The gargoyle's eyes narrow as they advance.
|"Desine!" The gargoyle's voice is a stone shriek, the cacophony of rock scraping against rock at high speed. "Desine!"
