and all that is to come from actions.'.

Augustus says (in common) 'we    are      not        fools         why        treat
         us        as          such         ?'.

Foolkiller says 'For every action there is a consequence. No matter how small.'.

make a part of it'.

restriction           ?'.

Foolkiller says 'You cannot wish for more wishes, nor can you wish that I leave. 
My powers do not affect myself :)'.

Augustus nods weakly.

Foolkiller says 'What is thy wish, Augustus?'.

Augustus says (in common) 'then         I            wish         that           your 
       counterpart           were        here        to       balance           you'.

Foolkiller throws back his head and cackles with insane glee!

Foolkiller says 'I told you, fool - my powers cannot be used to harm me. Her presence, 
if called by me, would harm me.'.
 
Augustus says (in common) 'why       would       her         mere        presence       
harm            you?'.

Ranzar says (in common) 'is there fear within all that armor Oblivion?'.

Foolkiller says 'because we are opposites. We cannot summon our opposites. It 
is part of the ancient covenants'.
 
Ranzar says (in common) 'it is truly augustus summoning her- and his need is as 
great as any'.

Foolkiller says 'No, fool - the wish is granted thru my powers'.
 
Augustus screams      Inifinity.

Foolkiller says 'My powers cannot be used to harm me.'.

Augustus says (in common) 'I       do         not          wish        to         
harm             only        balance'.

Foolkiller says 'Your wish is revoked Augustus'.
 
Augustus head drops to his chest.

Foolkiller says 'Pity yourself, for you could have saved Poor Pippin'.

Ranzar looks worriedly at pippin.
 
Pippin looks up softly.

Foolkiller reaches up and drags his fingernails down Pippins skin, leaving a 
trail of blood.

Augustus says (in common) 'I         am           sorry       Pippin,       I
         wanted         to         save        us           all'.

Pippin grimices..

Pippin nods.

Ranzar comforts Augustus.

Foolkiller says 'Now, for one more lesson...'.

Augustus pulls on the stakes holding his hands,  to no avail.

Foolkiller says 'Ranzar...Stand before my altar'.

Ranzar places himself before the altar.
Foolkiller says 'Look carefully at the faces of Pippin and Augustus'.

Ranzar does so regretfully.

Foolkiller says 'Look at the pain they suffer upon the Tree of Woe'.

Pippin looks into ranzar's eyes.

Augustus says (in common) 'do        not       worry         for         me,
      I              will              '.

Foolkiller says 'I grant you the power to release one, and only one of them 
from the Tree, restored in health.'.
 
Augustus is too weak to speak more.

Foolkiller says 'Make your choice and touch the altar...speaking the name of 
one you choose'.

Ranzar grinds his teeth at this disgrace.
 
Pippin tries to keep her head up.
 
Augustus says (in common) 'Pippin                pippin             pip'.
