Note: shortly before this, Tokugawa had gone to the guru to vow and start the quest for immortality:
The guru says, 'Many mystical items are hidden in the world.'.
The guru says, 'For a questor, they are filled with POWER!'.
The guru looks at the ground and draws a symbol there.
The guru says, 'They all look normal to the untrained eye.'.
The guru says, 'For a questor they glitter with an unnatural light.'.
The guru thinks a second and gauges the difficulty of the quest.
The guru says, 'Tokugawa, collect 1 of them...without dying.'.
The guru says, 'Good luck! And may your quest be...challenging.'.
Then a day or so later, the following took place:
<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > The Temple of the Foolkiller
[Exits: none]
DARKNESS!! Have you gone blind? No - giving your eyes a moment to adjust
to the lighting, you realize that the Temple of the Foolkiller is not
dark, but neither is it brightly lit. A faint blue light shines from the
top of each wall, illuminating words, scriptures and pictures that draw
your eyes and tantalize your mind. Above, you see moonlight streaming
down over all, yet wasn't it daytime when you entered here? Under you, a
luxuriously carpeted floor crawls out to each corner of the room, the
color of the carpet is indistinguishable, yet the carpet itself reflects
the blue light from the walls  in such a way that it appears a fine mist
rises from the floor. The walls appear to be dark and foreboding, yet the
give off a nourishing warmth and feel that removes your cares from your
soul. You see various furnishings selectively placed around the room for
your comfort and enjoyment. It is obvious that the owner of this temple
regards this as a place of sanctuary and learning. 
An Orb containing the All-Seeing Eye of Eternity floating
within sits on a marble pedestal in the center of the room.
Solanthas is here.
[GS] Foolkiller is here.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > 
Foolkiller says, 'If he chooses to give it to you...then say thank you, I am 
in your debt, if I can help you, just say the word'.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > You nod.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp >

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > You chuckle.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > 
Solanthas says (in common), 'me neither'.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > 
Solanthas chuckles, evidently amused.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > You say (in common), 'shall I wield it now?'.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > 
Foolkiller says, 'I would be appreciative of what he has done for you'.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > 
Foolkiller nods.

<436hp 194ma 627mv 345486gp > You say (in common), 'oh, I am'.
