Bad enough when your adventuring party gets a prophecy. Then the mystical forces make a call about YOU. That will keep you guessing for the whole campaign.
I would be freaked if someone pronounced my name that way too, though my name doesn't begin with 'burn'
I'm the same way with deadlines X_X It's hard to find the motivation to get something done without one.
Deadlines are funny things. We don't like them, but they are necessary. Without a deadline there is no motivation to get things done. Examples: I'm trying to work on a novel, but since I don't have a due date for it to be finished, I put it off and don't work on it; I haven't worked on it in a while. When Rebecca starts working on the latest chapter of Anathema, I start writing the next chapter and I'm usually done by the end of the month, depending on when I start. Speaking of, I better get started on chapter 28 soon.
Perhaps it is best not to know what a plague is
Oracles were called "Frenzied women from whose lips the god speaks" and were found all over the world in many different cultures. Delphi is certainly the most famous, but there were also Oracles at Dodona, Trophonius and Menestheus. It is theorized that Oracles had their visions because of gases which combined with other materials the Oracles had with them. They were often depicted holding a laurel sprig in one hand and a bowl with liquid in the other.
Very Vague, but at least they know

So I'm guessing her parents are dead and buried or just underground, and ... the oracle wants some nice new clothes?

And last panel's Angela: best drawing of her yet, or BEST drawing of her yet?
Authentic Greek translation by Anthoula Moudilos.
She's likely very wise, despite her age look
Presenting the oracle.
Well if you are scared of snakes, they aren't going to be cute no matter how they look like Michigan J. Frog
I hope there are cute little snake people living there,

it would be so cute, like one little snake guy all dressed up, you know nice hat maybe a cane and cape too. going to a party.
Yes quite a huge temple
But why is it tiny? Are there tiny people in it? And what will the oracle say? Bet it will be cryptic and ominous. And how do they keep those fancy clothes so neat?
Inquiring minds will return.
Yes, the 'town' is tiny and the temple is huge.

@D: The sort who is trying to get more than a mere servant? One whose loyalty is more assured?
One of the good sides to binge reading is thet you know that it's not gonna get axed on the most interesting part.

@Superficial_Fox: By the way this is also true for pretty much any cutting weapon in history. If you are watching a fantasy and see mooks dying the instant sword touches their bellies, it's just Hollywood.
Aside from trauma form blut weapon to the head (and rarely even then), stab/arrow through eye, or beheading (that was nearly impossible in actual combat), killing somone instantly is just a myth (through there were cases of people fainting from mortal wound and bleeding to death).
