You say (in common), 'The tortoise is a ground-living creature. It is impossible to live nearer the ground without being under it.'.

Ptarchyzk pulls one out of his pocket and tosses it back to Drystan.

You say (in common), 'It's horizons are a few inches away. It has about as good a turn of speed as you need to hunt down a lettuce.'.
You say (in common), 'It has survived while the rest of evolution flowed past it by being, on the whole,'.
You say (in common), 'no threat to anyone and too much trouble to eat.'.
You say (in common), 'And then there is the eagle. A creature of the air and high places, whose horizons go all the way to the edge of the world.'.
You say (in common), 'Eyesight keen enough to spot the rustle of some small and squeaky creature half a mile away. All power, all control.'.
You say (in common), 'Lightning death on wings.'.
You say (in common), 'Talons and claws enough to make a meal of anything smaller than it is and at least take a hurried snack out of anything bigger.'.
You say (in common), 'And yet the eagle will sit for hours on the crag and survey the kingdoms of the world until it spots a distant movement'.
You say (in common), 'and then it will focus, focus, _focus_ on the small shell wobbling among the bushes down there in the desert.'.
You say (in common), 'And then it will _leap_...'.
You say (in common), 'And a minute later the tortoise finds the world dropping away from it.'.
You say (in common), 'And it sees the world for the first time, no longer one inch from the ground but five hundred feet above it,'.
You say (in common), 'and it thinks: what a great friend I have in the eagle.'.

Drystan pauses, scanning across the room.

You say (in common), 'And then the eagle lets go.'.
You say (in common), 'And almost always the tortoise plunges to its death.'.

Drystan looks down for a moment before continuing.

You say (in common), 'Everyone knows why the tortoise does this. Gravity is a habit that is hard to shake off.'.

Drazuk chuckles, evidently amused.

You say (in common), 'No one knows why the eagle does this.'.
You say (in common), 'There is good eating on a tortoise but, considering the effort involved, there's much better eating on practically anything else.'.
You say (in common), 'It's simply the delight of eagles to torment tortoises.'.
You say (in common), 'But of course, what the eagle does not realize is that it is participating in a very crude form of natural selection.'.

Drazuk says (in elven), 'I turned to a looking glass, and saw the damage the acid had done...'.

(look drazuk)
From under a dark hood, you hear strange cackles and giggles, making you wonder
about the sanity of the wearer. Backing away slowly, you catch site of numerous
magical artifacts and weapons...not the trappings of your usual maniac. The dark
figure notices you staring, and pushes back the hood, revealing the scarred face
of a noble elf. You gasp as you recognize the character of many tales, Drazuk!

You then notice a large, leather-bound book under his arm, and slap yourself for
not recognizing the Book of Knowledge that was rumored to be lost for good. You
recall the story of the Book being cast into the Pits of Insanity by angered Gods,
and for Drazuk to have ventured into the Pits to regain this artifact must of done
much damage to his psyche. For him to even be alive at this point shows what a
tough elf he is.

You begin to find yourself respecting this crazy elf for what he has done, and
what he has gone through. He might not be the sanest of individuals, but you know
that he must have a solid enough grasp on reality to still be alive.

Kaldred (unseen) ftells, 'I know she wanted to see this one'.
You ftell, 'Did you level?'.
Kaldred (unseen) ftells, 'Not yet'.
