Honor bound

Post by Ed Woychowsky » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:28 pm

In a voice tainted with horror the professor asked, “Why did he leave us alive?”

After looking into his haggard face and composing my thought's for a few moments I replied, “It's really rather simple, our incompetence released him from the prison that had held him for millennium.”

The professor bristled at my use of the word, “incompetence” before allowing me to continue, “Even an Elder Evil has a sense of honor. We released Cthulhu from his countless centuries of imprisonment, he let us live. Letting us live was a simple matter of squid pro quo.”

Forget the like button. What I wouldn't give for an electric shock buzzer like the one used on Cliff on Cheers. It ought not to take millenia to produce some impulse control around here.
