Keeper Comments

There are some problems that the Keeper should address.

Morgan is difficult to kill because of his protection from Haon-Dor:

  • attacks vs Morgan have half normal success
  • damage to Morgan is halved
  • Morgan has super-human strength

This makes it extremely unlikely that he will be "killed or seriously injured" therefore no hell-plant therefore no escape to the Caves of Life.

If Lockly is frightened by Bendal-Dolum, why did he climb down a chain dangling in a bottomless pit to hide the body of Williamson? Also, why did he leave a chest of useful items there?
