You pretend to back away in terror. The Imp yawns ostentatiously, lazily moving one spiny finger to direct the flashing knife without even looking. You seize the opportunity. Leaping to one side, you quickly grab the bell-pull and heave on it savagely. There is a chime from nearby which seems to reverberate through the very walls! The Chaos Imp cringes at the sound. You pull the cord again and again, and the elfin creature crashes to the floor, clasping its hands to its oversized ears, eyes screwed up in torment. You have the initiative now. Will you make a rush for the door opposite (turn to 67), or will you take the opportunity to finish off this vile creature (turn to 25)?
