I know that, and I don't see where that mistake was made. The only point I mention Tulkan is that he was disemboweled, which is albeit a little bit of an understatement from my reading of your writing. In your section it states " It blinked from position to position, pulling and twisting the maddened form of Tulkan as it strobed this way and that, turning the rabid vepser’s body inside out and then back in on itself again, and again, and again. " I thought this meant that the lurker was literally folding his body inside and out, thus the disemboweling, and that in its destruction of him the creature was taking some control of the flesh,or the madness kept it alive enough to attack Laysmither. I guess I was a little confused there. If i made a mistake, can you please point it out so I can correct. Thank you.
