Sparkskar froze when the ceiling seemed to give way with a crash that filled the room with dust and debris. It was as if the world had been consumed by a cloud of roiling filth. He pressed his nose and mouth into the sleeve of his robes and ducked back, into the dark corners of the nearby wall. Slowly the dust dissipated, and he was startled briefly by a fat, juicy rat. The gob was half tempted to skewer it and make dinner of it, but then his eyes were drawn to the strangely glowing gob apparition.
He remained hidden in the shadows of the nearby cranny, knowing his magic-touched skin would naturally absorb the colors around him. Like one of those color changing reptiles, he'd blend into the wall as if he were part of it, and whatever the other creature was, it would get a sticky surprise if it turned dangerous. Was it another dead walky thing, or another caster gob? More likely a ghost of some sort. Sparky didn't know another mageling gob amongst the tribe, or any other tribe for that matter. More likely it was some divine boot licker, or perhaps a demon of one god or another. He resisted the urge to spit his contempt and remained hidden to study the creature from afar.
