On the other side of the door you find yourselves inside of a huge cavern. Further away you see that the cavern extends into an even larger cave system, with multiple large caverns leading away.
— “Wow. I’ve never been in such a large labyrinth before.” you say to dAnkan.
— “Whaaaat. Don’t you remember the giant giant Gigantus, the large, and her maze? We were in that for days.” dAnkan reminds you, and you remember past days of past adventures.
While dAnkan has got you distracted with nostalgia they take the opportunity to look around a little bit on their own. The room is littered with different objects and paraphernalia, most likely looted treasures from all over Yuletide. dAnkan rummages around, finally finding a glimmering chestplate. At this point you’ve snapped out of your nostalgia trip and you see dAnkan taking off their current chest plate and instead putting on the one found in the pile.
— “Hey, do you really think you should be doing that?” you ask dAnkan.
— “Yeah, the worst that could happen is that it looks too good on me.” dAnkan responds, and puts it on. As soon as dAnkan does so their eyes turn black and the chestplate sets itself tighter on their chest as dAnkan speaks out in a deep dark tone.
— “Fool, your greed has blinded you, and now I shall blind you.” dAnkan says, and draws their sword, slowly walking towards you.
— “Stay away, demon/ghost/spirit/fey/fiend/celestial/beast/elemental or other kind of creature!” you shout to dAnkan, or rather the being possessing dAnkan. You cast a spell on dAnkan and say “Whatever you are, feel my divine magic, blessed by Santa himself! If I can figure out your secret you must leave my friend.”
The being just laughs in response, and so it falls upon you to save dAnkan.
Having found the demon’s secret you successfully expel it from dAnkans body and new chestplate. You rush over to try to help them take it off but dAnkan just looks at you with their normal, duck coloured eyes.
— “What are you doing, I just put it on! I saw it first!” dAnkan roars, and swats your hands away.
— “What?! What do you mean?” you ask dAnkan.
— “I just took it on. Does it look good?” dAnkan asks you in return.
— “Well…” you start, realising dAnkan must not remember being possessed. You rule it out as a trauma response and decide not to discuss it any further. “It really brings out your eyes.” you say, with a slight grin.
And so you continue on, hoping to soon find the dragon who, by your calculations, should be going to bed about now.
