Story: The Devil's Contracts

Post by Shurijo » Sun Dec 01, 2019 4:55 pm

Tubidu
A saturnine humanoid flashes a charming smile, exposing gleaming, pointed canine teeth. Its slick, tightly cropped hair drops down over its forehead in a widow’s peak, which is flanked by two tiny horns, like those of a baby goat. The creature wears luxurious, impeccably fashionable garments. Instead of feet, it possesses a formidable pair of cloven hooves. Its eyes glow red. A prehensile tail, covered in crimson scales, impatiently twitches from a long opening cut into the back of its fine outfit.

Signee: Faeranduil Moonshadow

Administrator: Tubidu

Fine Print: In order for the Moonblade to accept the Signee as its master, a spirit of the Administrator's choosing will replace the existing Moonblade's sentient spirit.
With a drow father and wood-elf mother, Faeranduil Moonshadow was shunned as a young elf. After his maternal grandfather died, the ancestral moonblade was destined to be passed to him. However, his elders denied his right because he was half-drow.

Furious, the young elf sought a solution for his problem. As if he was summoned on command, Tubidu arrived in the village appearing as a wood-elf. The devil then offered Faeranduil his ancestral moonblade in return for his soul. The young elf quickly signed the contract.

A few hours later, Tubidu returned and presented Faeranduil with the moonblade. The devil spoke, "The sword is yours. Soon, no elf will contest your ownership." Tubidu then vanished.

Within minutes, elven guards entered and rushed to apprehend Faeranduil. As the guards grappled him, the sword compelled Faeranduil to attack. Unable to hold back his rage fueled by the sword's spirit, he slaughtered the guards and his mother.

Standing over the bodies, he was unable to stop crying. The weight of his malevolent actions crashed with his conscience. This is maddening, he thought.

As he deeply wept, Tubidu reappeared in his devil form. With a wave of his hand, Tubidu opened a portal and said, "Follow me to ease your guilt. You can slaughter my enemies rather than your family and friends."

Hear me, Archdevil Tubidu! Hear my oath! I am Log'thar. I give up my family name, country, and all other loyalties to serve thee. Forevermore I will be your unholy weapon of justice and order, taking upon myself your service and banner, faithful and true. I shall hate all that you hate, shun all that you shun, and destroy all that is found wanting in your sight.

I will be thy sword and shield, constant and true, never shirking from my eternal duty. I bind myself to thee to lead into the zone of war, to conduct myself to glory, no matter the ferocity or ingenuity of the foe. If I fail in my vows I shall be forsaken and cursed, spurned by thy servants, thy blessings denied me, thy face turned from me for all time and eternity.

On this matter, and by thy infernal weapon and desecrated shield, I swear.
