Now, this is getting ridiculous! Those days a young but powerful wizard, a rising star on the magical sky, so to say, not only have to sell into slavery his former teacher to get a magical artifact he needs to start to conquer the world, it's even worse: he can't even leave this valuable magical item in his study (hidden in a safe place, mind it!) without a greedy drow thief getting his black hands on it! :))Late at night, or, rather, early in the morning, Zmeifen the half-drow wizard returned to his study before going to bed to pick up a book. He discovered there his secret place where he was keeping the most powerful, therefore valuable, freshly-obtained magical artifact opened, and a drow thief who was just about to seize the crystal and drop it into a bag. (Good thing that Zmei has a perfect reflexes - wizard reflexes - first blast, than talk!...) But this discovery is almost nothing compare to the one Zmei's about to make: This blasted drow thief in fact is his unknown father. Well, here the soap opera ends, no sweet family reunion, I promise!:) But some recognition would take place: when Rhianel (Zmei's friend) will set the thief free, Dzzirt won't take the artifact he was after; and Zmeifen, who'll be watching the scene in a crystal ball, won't make a move to prevent his dad's escape. Both will be sorry later, of course:)) Details: Zmei, Dzzirt.
