Teela, my child.

You must take this stone to

the Paladin at Sung Hill.

I am too old to make the journey.

Run! Run!

Teela! Teela!

Where... is the stone?

You will never find it!

Run, Teela! The Goddess will not let me die.

Find help.

We shouldn't doing this.


Gentle... or we'll go... pooh!

- This-this one here?

- Mm-hm.

- OK.

- Softly!

- I can't!

- Pour.

- Nothing's happening. We should stop.

- Ah-ah... and I would pour the rest in.


Now, begin!

Ah, that's it.

I don't know what went wrong.

I think I need more Basilisk blood.


What's that smell?!

Take care of this.

You brought some down there, boy?

I'll strip your hide from you!

Out of my way, gimp!

You clumsy b*tch!

You're not worth the gruel it costs to feed you!

Leave that! Let the gimp finish it.


Take this into town.

Get coin, from the wizard

And I want you back before first watch!

I don't want any trouble with the guards.

- I'll go.

- No, your leg...

You won't get back before dark. They'll catch

you and... they'll brand you as a runaway.

I mastered the vision spell you gave me.

Although, I-I think it could've...

used some more Basilisk blood.

And what the Basilisk blood project?

An eagle.

That's fascinating. I'm certain Basilisk

blood would result in a fireball.

Think I'm ready for more spells.

Really? What kind of spells?


I'm not a holy man.

You need a healer.

Magic... is not an art of

faith, but of understanding.

However... I do have something for you.

Bring me that pile of parchment.

There, a displacement spell.

It's very useful, but don't

use it on living objects.

Why not?

Because it will most likely cease to be living.

What are you doing?

I'm leaving. These things

not safe to be left here.

Nothing, is safe here anymore.

You're leaving?

There's too many eyes, too much... lust for power.

I've stayed too long.

Take me with you.

You've a strong mind Marek...

and a gift for learning.

You could teach me.

You could buy me and you could teach me.

There's an inn...

It's just outside of town.

You ask for Hammerhead.

You'll find the experience that you lack, there

and someone... will be in need of a conjurer.

I can't.

I'd be alone... a runaway.

Hunted down and hanged.

You're a fighter, Marek.

It would be a shame to see that flame go out.

- But, I ca...

- No. It's getting dark and you must go.

It's almost night.

Here, it's for the hogs' room.

Please don't go.

You're my only friend.

The only one who could help me.

Good friends aren't so hard to find.

Our paths will cross again.

Now... haste.

It's after first watch and the guards

will looking for slaves breaking curfew.

- What is it?

- Adventurers, they have dragon heads.

The first watch!

Watch where you're going, gimp!

Ohh... ho-ho-ho-ho-ho.

What do we think of this, huh?

Oh, slave girl, huh? But you're not so young.

I could sell you as a 15 year old. Mmm...

- 16 years old, no right leg?

- No! No!

But it's your twisted foot... it's not my type.

But some man, mmm, some man

may pay extra for a girl like you.


Take her to the den. Take her!

No! No.

- Let go! Let go! Let go!

- Ohh!

And find out who owns the rights, in case...

somebody wants to claim her.


My slave, she ran away... but I caught her.

No! He's lying!

Your slave's out past first watch.

She'll have to come with me.

Like, I said... my slave girl ran away...

and I found her.

There's no harm done here.

That's for your troubles.

What's her name?

Kill him!

Ah, you... b*tch!

I will find you!

You, uh... you just don't know who I am, do you?

I have a general idea.

If you cross me, you will pay!

You thrust this in with some force, my lady.

The effect... was nearly disastrous.


- What are you carrying?

- Nae but straw.

Move along. Move along.

Get off me!

A thousand pardons, my lady.

I can't help myself.

Beautiful girl... intimate moment in the straw...

But, alas, work calls.

The magistrate isn't going to

cuckhold himself, now, is he?

Pleasant travels.

- The coins...

- Hey, stop! You there, stop!


Oh, no! No! No!

Who's the man here?

Does this belong to you?


I trust this can be forgotten!

You led the Vitalian Guard to this house?!

Where's my coin?

I'm sorry, I was robbed, and...

Are you trying to make a fool of me, girl?

You managed that, yourself.

You're finished here!

Yes, I wanted you clean, so I

could keep your price up!

Now, I'll just take what's mine! Sell

whatever's left of you... to the whorehouse!

What was that?

- I... I don't mean...

- You used no powders and you said no words.

It-it was like no magic I've ever seen before.

- Where is she?

- Witch! Conjurer!

I have to go. I'm going to Hammerhead's inn.

Come with me. I can't do it alone, Egan.


I made it. It'll help you run.

I don't have your courage.

I- I would never make it.

Come on, go. Quick.

Goodbye, Egan.


Make sure she stays out.

I won't be sayin' it again!

No fightin' blades in the establishment!

Feed that mess to the pigs.

A round of drinks for the Blood Clan!

On the house!


Move it along, nowl!


I'm going to assume that you're new here

and that this is a gift... so that Orc over there

doesn't have to polish the blood

off the blade of my ax, again.

- I'm looking for work.

- Then talk to Narnie, over there.

No... adventuring work!

I want a chance at a bounty. I do magic.


Why didn't you say so? A magician!

Well! I had no idea!

And all this time I've been payin'

court to a real fyekin' magician!

- Now get out before my temper's...

- Ahh!

In the name of the goddess, Anisette,

I demand audience with Orin Tuck!

- Fyekin' women tonight!

- You are Orin Tuck?

Hammerhead's what they be callin' me now.

I am Teela, of the order of

Anisette, sent to plead your help.

Orcs raided my temple, two nights past

and my people were slain, or taken by foul beasts.

I seek heroes to win their freedom.

Have you any gold?

I... have some. 200 silver.

That's not gold.

Please, you and your kind were friends

to the order, in times of old.

Times of old are olden times, now.

And those heroes lie shriveled, in the dirt.

I've no use for causes!

And neither does any man here, today.

They have my sister!

Does any lad here want to

help save this lass's sister,

who was kidnapped by a band or marauding Orcs?

The pay is 200 silver pieces.

There's the door.

I suggest you use it.

If I just fyekin' saw who I think I fyekin' saw...

she better be here to sell herself as a whore!

I will take that bounty!

I'm forming a team.

Any of you are welcome to join my team.

I... bring the skill... of magic.

Careful, she has magic!


You need help.

In there... I-I heard you. You nee...

you need help.

I require seasoned adventurers... heroes, even.

Not young girls.

I have a team!

You have a limp.

No one else will help you.

Hammerhead said it.

The mission is too dangerous and...

you have too little to pay.
