Part 323: Elmal Guards the Stead: Part II
Very well... another strengthening quest it is.
Soon some of those stats will be marginally higher!
Orlanth leaves on his great quest, and Elmal remains to protect the stead against the forces of Chaos. The Eater of Skin, a chaos monstrosity, comes singing the Rending Song, which makes the people bleed.
Blind it with your brightness.
Leave the realm of the gods.
Let it step on you, in order to gain leverage to throw it far away.
Let it tear you apart.
Protect yourself with Orlanth's shield.
Sing a song of comforting valor.
Thrust your spear into its eye.
