Jar of Ugly
The secret knock was heard by all then the door opened to the adventurer’s hideout. A grotesque looking man walking in, eyes misshapen, frog-like mouth, warty. He hailed the group.
Chalk fell back in his chair and prepared a spell, Valance started calling spiders as Koram drew a dagger.
The hideous figure raised both hands and hurried over to the basin of water, he vigorously washed his face, revealing Navnen.
Chalk smirked as he recalled his spell and it fizzled.
‘Drat, that was a new spell I wanted to try out, too!’
‘You may get your chance yet. Some of the other guild members and I found this horrid looking jar that allows us to make faces for ourselves like the one I had and then we…’
‘Broke into somewhere you shouldn’t have and stole things from the wrong people?’ Valance chimed in.
‘Something along those lines,’ the thief confessed.
‘I’ll keep the spell handy,’ Chalk said.
