I do not see that the flea demon tried to snack on the imprints. I read it as trying to devour the party members.
They basically ignored the free and defenceless imprints.
He also said he went to this room because of the prayer Complains of Names did to start the teller-ceremony.
The party only talks about "imprints", not about "souls" of past fortune tellers.
Also, the ceremony reads:
Complains of Names: Great Goblin God. We, the clan of the Cryptic Fall, ask you to release the power of our past fortune tellers so that...
Complains of Names: too small to be read, and not intended to be read by the readers
to the Goblin God.
Complains of Names: ... and we understand that once you start the ceremony, it will not end until a Goblin either becomes our new teller or dies trying.
Complains of Names: So... start. Or make it go or whatever. Begin.
And on the next page:
I took this as a reference to CoN's soul and prayer. Not to the imprints coming up.
Also, while reading a bit through the transcripts, I noticed something which might explain the levitation of Fumbles:
Wall of Knowledge: Item Enchanter: Leviate
Wall of Knowledge: This single use potion can permanently enchant an item, causing that item to grant limited bursts of `levitationâ”¬â”¤ to any individual in contact with it. This potion is meant to be poured onto a wearable item like a rind, so that it can be easily kept in contact with the individual. While levitating, the enchanted item will ignite into magical flames that don't radiate any hear.
Maybe Fumbles would've fallen down, out of the power, but the levitation has kept him up, and thus in danger? - Probably not, as he was not "on fire", nor any of his equipment was "on fire" at the time of levitation.
BTW: can some Patreon provide me with the full text of CoN's small print from the HD-version of the page of 1 May
? (for the transcription thread)
If not, no worries... If yes, thank you very much!
