Library: the tears of Oxtoth


Author: Malitrius
Date:Sep 16 2001

Many millenia ago Oxtoth descended down to the realms of mortal men. His quest
given by Draen-Dalar was to strengthen the following among the ever changing
world of the mortal world to gain an upper hand in the eternal struggle
against Light. As Oxtoth's shadowy hands did the deed of corrupting thousands
and thousands of the weak hearted, his glance noticed a sight that for the
first time in eons managed to pierce through to the utter blackness of his
heart. Oxoth the God of Decay had fallen in love, love that he did not share
even with Sa'hr when she still was his bride. The subject of his love was the
fairest maiden of the elven forest where he at the moment trod. The maiden was
also the high priestess in the temple of Las and the favored one of the God of
Justice. As soon as she and her companions detected Oxtoth approaching, she
wailed a paniced prayer towards the God of Law. As Oxtoth touched reached to
touch the fair skin of the beautiful priestess, she withered into mere puddle
of black ooze and foul smelling dust. Oxoth was in anguish and his cry of
anger echoed thorough the lands. Then he slumped down and burst into tears.
For the first and last time the blackness of his heart was cast away. Las came
to investigate the source of the prayer he heard and as he saw the situation
he quickly instructed the other priests of the temple to collect the flowing
tears of Oxtoth. The tears still contained the drained soul of the fairest
priestess of Las that Oxtoth destroyed in his brief emotion of love. Thus this
vial contains the essence of love and epitome of justice, even though the
origin is from a vile god of decay.
