First Incarnation: Ambiguously-Gendered Human Wizard

Trip spawns in a mountainous forest region in the eastern portion of Harkad. Trip accidentally sets fire to the forest, alerting shrumen from a nearby village. He flees up the mountain and overhears the shrumen trying to put out the fire. After escaping, Trip finds himself high upon the mountain, right at the entrance to the dwarven city of Stormwald. He tries to gain information about Stormwald, but he instead summons forth a unicorn which lands on him and walks on his face. After having another spell blow up in his face, Trip banishes the unicorn. Trip wanders off and runs back into the shrumen below, who accuse him of being a witch. He convinces the shrumen that he’s a good aligned wizard. The shrumen mention that some of their brothers have gone missing and that the mine may be infested with undead. Trip heads back up the mountain and enters Stormwald.

Trip navigates through Stormwald and finds a corridor guarded by two golems. After testing their behavior with illusions, Trip dashes through the corridor only to step on a number of lighting runes and activate a few crossbow turrets. Trip jams the turrets by sitting on their trigger stone, but he then meets with the Witch Schierke. Schierke captures Trip, brings him down into her lair, and ties him down onto an operating bench. Trip teleports himself, Schierke, a bear-shrumen abomination, and several other golems into the shrumen village of Tal-Uras. Schierke and her golems assault the village while Trip escapes to the outskirts, where he finds a group of guards along with any surviving villagers. The abomination discovers the group, prompting Trip and the guards to attack it. Just as they finish it off, NESgamer 190 appears and crashes into Trip.

Trip heals himself, but a possessed kobold head that accompanied Nes absorbs some of the magic. The kobold head fuses itself to the bear-shrumen corpse to form a Kobold-Unicorn-Bear-Shrumen abomination. The unicorn monstrosity launches fetuses at the surviving villagers as they try escaping. The Witch Schierke and her golems appear and attack the abomination. Trip retreats with the villagers into a nearby forest, but he finds Nes buried in the ground.

He teleports everyone to an abandoned goblin city in the witchlands. The kobold captain suggests to get everyone moving before they starve or die of thirst. Trip conjures an eye to scan the area, upon which he finds the Harkad border wall and a mine shaft. After bidding farewell to everyone else, Trip travels into the mine shaft. He finds an ancient temple with statues of unicorns and Cathari Sarad. Further in, Trip finds a set of sarcophagi for summoning undead minions. After fumbling, Cathari Sarad appears and offers to make a contract. Though Trip declines, Cathy makes a contract with him anyway and shoves her foot down his throat. Trip becomes a Witch.

Cathy teleports him to a dirt house on a remote island. In his new abode, Trip acquires Cathy’s guidebook and reads through it. When he tries to exit his house, a sheep blocks his way. Trip fireballs the sheep, but the Cathy transforms it into the Ashen Goat Demon. He fights the demon using the guidebook as an aid. Just as he’s about to finish it off, Cathy redirects one of Trip’s spells back at him and lets the demon kill him. Cathy revives Trip, tortures him to death, and repeats the process for what seems like an eternity.

Second Incarnation: Dragon Warrior Girl/Witch

Trip spawns back on her island. She travels trough a portal to District-12, where several Puzov soldiers confront her. They bring her to an isolated, underground chamber. An overseer begins questioning Trip about her nature and concludes she’s an immortal. The overseer offers Trip a job that involves hunting witches, but it inexplicably explodes. After waiting alone for a while, Trip escapes with the help of the Witch Beatrice. She makes a pact with Trip and removes Cathy’s pact. Beatrice briefs Trip on the other witches.

Trip travels to the Harkad perimeter to go on a witch hunt, but the Puzov forces come under fire from a Harkad assault force, including a dragon and the witches Gruntilda and Circe. Beatrice instructs Trip to lure Circe away from the troops near the perimeter. Trip insults Circe and leads her to a Puzov battalion marching into Harkad territory. After this, Beatrice teleports Trip back to her lair. Trip heads out and flies onto the dragon’s back when Beatrice commands her.

Cathy appears in the place of Gruntilda and teleports Trip to a dungeon. Trip tries staying put, paranoid of Cathy’s antics, but she falls into a chamber filled with spiders and a sentient tumor. The tumor requests that Trip slay it. When she does so, Trip continues through the dungeon past a series of torture chambers. Trip manages to escape the dungeon and Beatrice teleports her into a war planning room. She asks Trip to assist with the occupation of the Laguz peninsula. After accepting this mission, Trip goes to rest and drinks a potion, which triggers an acid sequence.

Within the sequence, Trip goes on a journey into a strange cave. She acquires two gemstones within the dream/drug sequence before finally waking up. She then travels to the Puzov base on the Laguz peninsula.

     Makuta 9999 

First Incarnation: Human Battlemage

Makuta spawns in the Sumerian-style Temple of Hastar. He reads and translates some writing on the walls, which glorify King Yassari II. He reads over a cylinder in the room’s center, accidentally performing a ritual that transforms himself into a spiderswarm lich. The ritual alerts three temple guards and their spider familiars in the next room, who then charge Makuta. Makuta uses his spells to collapse parts of the ceiling on the guards, comprising of a battlemage, a cleric, and a paladin. After Makuta nearly defeats the guards and blocks off an entrance, the cleric absorbs one of his spells and uses it to revive the paladin into the enhanced Templar Reborn. Makuta covers the floor with ice and then tries to collapse the ceiling onto the Templar as more guards file into the room. He fumbles with a few spells and suffers several blows from the Templar’s holy mace. Even though two more guards enter the room, Makuta slays the revived paladin and turns the two guards into spiderswarms.

The Templar explodes in a flash of light, and Yassari II appears atop the central column. As Makuta has become a lich, Yassari II offers to become his mentor and explains what he know about the world. The old king teleports Makuta to his palace on the island of Trasti. After giving him a set of skeleton legs, Yassari II asks Makuta to check on one of his mines since his followers have gone missing.

When Nes asks for specifics, Cathy forces him into the contract and makes him suck on her foot.

Nes teleports to Trip’s location and crashes into him while the possessed kobold’s head follows him. The head absorbs Trip’s healing spell and fuses itself to a flesh golem Trip had been fighting along with Nes’s newly acquired hammer. The fusion results in a unicorn abomination.
