The troll's scream somewhat alerted a presence. He was doing right. Ulay proceeded to lift his two Bone Kukris and aligned them like snake fangs. He started to dance in movements that imitated a cobra's dance and hissed at the orc that laid before him. In a moments notice the troll drowned both his blades in the orc's chest. His eyes started to flutter as his spirit began to wander. Ulay found himself on a huge Pyramid like they were in Zul'Gurrub, but with a vast jungle around it. He only could see some other pyramids with stange figures on them. He seemed to be in some kind of dream. When he concentrated on the pyramid he stood on he saw a figure in front of him that made him fall to his knees. It was someone that looked like Venoxxis, but the creature's skin was white.
Ulay put his head as low as he could and rose his voice:
"Mighty Dambala. I wanted to offer you my soul for you boons."
The snake loa snickered.
"I like your dedication but you are going the wrong way just now. I don't want blood, I want faith. And you have proven to have it. You are an Atal'dambala. Don't go the bloody way of your people. I saved you to show you the righteous path"
"I thank, you mighty god, but I let one of mine be injured I failed you."
Another creature made it's appearance. It was a musculous troll warrior in bright red armor carrying two machetes.
"Wounds are inflicted in war, keep on fighting Ulay. Your courage may not waver."
Ulay guessed that the avatar of war was standing before him. The blood he used to paint himself must have summoned him. The huge troll warrior slapped Ulay on his back and the wounds he suffered caused him great pain but he felt invigorated nevertheless.
The warrior, Ogoun had his hand full if Ulay's blood and marked the hunter's forehead with it.
"I have a vision for you, a porpouse that you seek."
Ulay saw the trapped parts of the woods and a female in red armor with golden hair.
The troll, still on his knees completely crawled himself up on the floor again with his arms extened as far as he could.
"The one you care for, her wounds will be healed, her path is clear. For now."
A beautiful troll female dressed in white and golden rainments appeared on Dambala's other side. She laid her hand on Ulay's back and his wounds closed. Ogoun frowned a bit when she healed the aspiring troll but nodded at her.
his voice was trembling when the troll thanked the third loa.
"Do not let doubt hinder you, be confident, have faith."
The snake Loa rose his hands and he was holding 2 kukris similar to Ulay's the only difference being that they were masterfully embroidered with the Loa's symbols.
"I thank all of you for this great insight. I will trouble you no further."
When Ulay spoke this word he awoke seeing Karyon kneeling over him.
"You had no pulse for 10 straight minutes i thought you were,..."
"Don't worry my friend, I was shown the path."
Ulay still felt the wounds on his back, he knew that they were not mended, they were part of his test. What he did not notice was a small spot of blood on his forehead, and new markings displaying white snakes on his kukris.
The troll armed himself with his kukris, a belt full of throwing knives and six of his spears. He learned the art of head hunting back in Zul'Gurrub but he never was confident enough to leave without his bow. He was today. With 2 of his spears on his back and 2 in each hand crossed between his fingers, he left to find his prey. The golden haired woman. It was easy to find her, she wanted to be found. but the people accompanying her were less confident. Two of the four scouts were impaled by the troll's first spears with whome he attacked out of the shadows. He mustered his little knowledge of common and whispered out of the darkness.
"I hav been' lookin for ya."
