1. Lobster Salad
It was the salad that caused the dream.  It was the tie-pin beside the bed that would save him from death.

2. The Workman
Futility: As he fell to his death the workman tried to scratch his name on the walls as he passed them.

3. The Dream of King Karna-Vootra
Life and death unremembered, until a smile from her ghost
Reached the king.

The little blue charm removed thirst, but in the end man is always outwitted.

Laughter was the enemy that doomed the cathedral of wizardry.
