Gustavus and Friends

From the Notes of Gustavus

A strange interaction occurred between our mechanical friend’s command circlet and the ritual that returned him to the living. It seems the telepathy of the circlet allowed us a glimpse of Gronk’s mind during the re-animation process. Unfortunately what was going through his mind was in the form of deep speech so I had to copy it down phonetically and have it translated as best I could afterwards. The translation has been improved as I have learned more about the Xoriat methods of construction. Here is a transcript of what was heard:

RESTARTING

And that is all that was gleaned before Gronk awoke. After I had this translated I questioned Gronk on what his objectives were, he claimed to not remember. I am inclined to believe him because if Gronk doesn’t want someone to have information he will withhold it rather than put on a ruse to hide the information. That being said I feel it is in the best interest of all citizens of Eberron that any chance at repair or recovery of Gronk’s memory should be thwarted. I also need to investigate how these components and equipment were acquired during the re-animation process, perhaps he has some way of connecting with the planes controlled by Xoriat.

Nice job Ryan.

Amazing! I’m picturing Gronk with a case badge that says “Cthulhu inside”. You never can trust those cheap Xoriat memory cores though.
