The primary goal of this précis is to accurately capture the first stage of events leading up to the recovery of the moxen necessary for the ritual of cleansing. We intend to explore not only the gross facts within that purview but also the greater significance of these events vis–à–vis those theories most well presented in [HJ],[VL], and [AK].
Our primary subjects of consideration are those considered in the previous monograph [L].
The individuals of [L] awoke still in the presence of the esteemed monk Roshi, who continued to exhibit those twitches most adeptly predicated and described in [SA]. They were able to avoid the meal difficulties of prior days by following the dictates of [SA2], namely providing their own food and thereby preserving their own teeth. Roshi described the tasks necessary to destroy the being Marrow, however those tasks need not be listed here as they will be obvious to any familiar with the work of the rather eccentric member of the well-known scholary clan of Sfrondrati-Piccolomini: [SB].
Proceeding into the cave system the individuals of interest were attacked by blight vines. An attack most likely precipitated by the curiosity of one of their constituents, which is unsurprising as blight vines are a plant-like species and so partial to precipitation. However, the fault of the individual is ultimately due to the fault of the group, as was made clear in [MG]. The blight vines were vanquished, though not without difficulty. The author of this work felt it necessary to admonish the others by calling their minds to the ever insightful [SH].
After the encounter with the blight vines the subjects of this piece encountered one of the classic problem of [LD]. As was discovered after the fact some members of the party were able to see a slide made of ice and others were unable to perceive that same qualia. It, the one who carried the skull of Marrow and follows many of the precepts of [QP] whose senses appeared to have been misled. Some more rash members of the party, namely one called out in the second section of this article, headed rashly down the slide while the group as a whole, to remain unitary, was forced to wait for the apparent mental confusion to be overcome, at which point they encountered a most strange phenomena.
The room possessed four distinct blocks of ice that could only be slid along orthogonal axes. It also possessed four distinct elemental sigils. Depending on the theories expounded in [MT] this apparent puzzle was easily solved thereby turning the snow of the room into ice, revealing a pool full of what appeared to be keys but were in fact predator fish.
Following the tenets of [KJ], all of the fish were summarily slaughtered through various magics and other fell powers and invocations. A key was found within a clam at the bottom of the pool, a key which would turn the water of the room back into ice. After much apparent confusion (including, but not limited to placing a dead fish into the clam in hopes of transubstantial key production) it was discovered that only the surface of the water turned to ice and that swimming below that ice a second key was found in the clam that opened the door to the treasure room. This result is, of course, entirely unsurprising to anyone familiar with the work of [CS].
Following the prescient work of [RJ], not all of the necessary moxen were found in the treasure room. Only one was contained within the walls of that room, which drove the unitary group forward. The subsequent events precipitated (even at risk of further plant conflict) are to be addressed in [L2].
