Deathbringer - Exclusive Interview with King Kull the Skullsplitter




EXCLUSIVE  Interview with His Majesty of Wults, King of the Ancient Vikings, King Kull the Skullsplitter
LA: Today I have the privilege of interviewing arguably the most sought after personality in Faythander, Kull, King of Wults. We’ll find out if all the gossip is true. Did he lose the sword of his ancestors? Is he engaged? When can we expect a wedding? Are the rumors about that jagamoor true? Kull, we’re so glad you could make it.
Kull: Of course.
LA: Tell us, how is the transition of going from playboy prince to king of an entire nation?
Kull: It’s going very well. Why? Have you heard otherwise?
LA: Yes, in fact I have.
Kull: It’s all bogus. The transition couldn’t be going any better. I was just visiting the outlying villages recently and they were thriving—even with the threat of the elves trying to take over Faythander, the Wult nation is strong. Dare I say, stronger than ever before. Now, let’s change the subject, shall we?
LA: Does discussing the state of your nation make you nervous?
Kull: As I said. Change the subject.
LA: Not a problem. Let’s talk about the sword of your ancestors. I read recently that you made a bad deal with the witch of Dragon Spine Mountain and traded it to her to pay off your debts, and later you allowed the sword to be destroyed. Is this true?
Kull: Once again, completely bogus. Have I lost the sword? Yes. To pay off my debts? Untrue. False. Where do these rumors get started?
LA: But you do admit to losing the sword? The symbol of your kingdom? Heirloom? Entrusted to you by your ancestors to always keep it safe?
Kull: Some things are more important than swords.
LA: Ah yes, you’re right. I assume you’re speaking about your fiancée? We’ve not heard much about this elusive bride-to-be, but our sources have confirmed that she is indeed half-elven, and what’s worse, she’s not even in a position to unite our nations. Can you elaborate on why you chose to ally our kingdom with such an uncommon choice?
Kull: Because I love her.
LA: Well, that’s obvious, isn’t it? But give us some indication as to why you picked a half-breed. There are some who claim you chose to put your own emotions above the needs of our kingdom. Is it true?
Kull: I refuse to answer such a question. Where is my drink?
LA: Drink?
Kull: I’ve been waiting, most patiently, for an Earth Kingdom beverage that was promised to me if I attended this ridiculous interview.
LA: Yes, I’m sure someone will get that to you just as soon as you answer a few more questions. Can you tell us when to expect the wedding?
Kull: No.
LA: Aha! Is it a secret then? Is there an elopement planned?
Kull: I’m very thirsty.
LA: I’m sure you are, seeing as how you’ve done so much speaking. Tell us, is your fiancée indeed possessed by the spirit of Theht?
Kull: What? Where did you hear that?
LA: It’s common knowledge, really.
Kull: No, it’s not common knowledge at all. In fact, she only just told me. Who are you?
LA: There’s no need for shouting.
Kull: I knew it was you!
LA: Fine, the ruse is up. Here, have a Dr. Pepper.
