    Tiamat sat at the Inn reflecting on what had happened. She had seen the Souls that were trapped freed as her newfound friends fought off and defeated the Guardians that were in the Lab of the Evil One. She had watched as Murdock himself was defeated and watched his Spirit swirl out from his charred corpse. She had been given the Bottle from the Chest, a bottle that held the tears of her ancestors.

    When she had been given it, a strange feeling had overwhelmed her, and in the blink of an eye she had transformed into a human.

    How this happened was inconceivable. There had to be strong magic at work for such to have happened. Perhaps it was within herself - the two souls, one dragon, one human - combined.

When and if she found what she searched for she would yet again have to call upon her new friends, she was sure. She hoped they would be willing to help her yet again.

    Turning towards the door, she started her journey back to the temple where the majestic beasts she so envied in the draconic form dwelled. It was here that she would begin her search, and onwards to the place where the Evil One - Murdock - hid his Lab.

    In the dark of the night she made her way towards the docks to gain Voyage to the Isle of Fire and the Temple...
