Mansion of Maleficence by Per Jorner - Introduction - Rules - Start - Sections

You are fighting someone who is little more than the shadow of a man: someone who has languished in the midst of evil spirits for so long that he has all but become one himself. Although his body is worn down and you can almost feel his bones crack under each of your blows, some hidden energy seems to be keeping him up, and his flailing arms are everywhere, clawing and grasping at you. Resolve this fight:

Fallen Custodian: Skill 2, Vitality 2

If you win, turn to 36. If you lose, the last thing you see will be his sightless face as you fade into oblivion in his strangling grip. All things considered, this is one of the better ways to meet with one's fate in the Mansion of Maleficence.
