Angels of Avalon You're fighting the Angels of Avalon

High on the astral plane (which you certainly are), you see a group of winged figures surrounded by mists. How "mist" can have a plural, you're not sure, but these guys are standing in it. Er, them. The mists.

"Greetings, adventurer," they say, as one. "We are the angels of avalon. We hear you've been waiting for us, as well as the eastern glow. If you can defeat us in combat, we'll reward you."

They pull out flaming swords and advance on you.

Hit Message(s):

They smack you with their flaming swords. That just seems like overkill -- either the flames or the slashing alone would do fine. Ugh! Ooh! Ugh! (hot damage)

They batter you with their feathery wings. It's like being mugged by an aggressive maid. Ooh! Eek! Ouch!

Critical Hit Message:

The pain of war cannot exceed the woe of aftermath, but they make a pretty good attempt. Ouch! Ow! Eek!

Miss Message(s):

They swing their flaming swords at you, but they can't seem to calculate the distance between you and them, in a place where space and time have no meaning.

They try to batter you with their feathery wings, but just tickle you silly.

Fumble Message:

One of them sings as he raises his bow, but he shoots much less straight than before.

  • Elements of this adventure reference the Mists of Avalon novels by author Marion Zimmer Bradley.
  • The title and a fragment of the angel's speech in this adventure come from a line in the song "The Battle of Evermore" by Led Zeppelin: "I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon, waiting for the eastern glow."
  • This enemy is a reference to the Bible, where in Genesis 3:24 it says, "After He drove the man out, He placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life."
  • The critical hit and miss messages reference consecutive lines from "The Battle of Evermore": "The pain of war cannot exceed The woe of aftermath, The drums will shake the castle wall, The ringwraiths ride in black, Ride on. / Sing as you raise your bow, Shoot straighter than before. No comfort has the fire at night That lights the face so cold."
