Circle 7: Violence (FINAL CIRCLE!)

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 11, 2012, 10:49 PM
***Thank you, DemonikaDemise, for writing this text!***

After a harrowing time through Heresy, you wonder why you bothered making this journey in the first place.  Is it really a test? Or is it a trick? Are you in Hell forevermore?

Up ahead you see an imposing figure guarding an ornate gate, the smell of blood heavy in the air. As you approach the outer gate you are barred by a beast: half man, half bull, The Minotaur. Directly behind the Minotaur you are able to see a river so red it can only be blood and fire; the scent is nauseating.

"Pilgrim," says the Minotaur in a deep harsh voice that shakes you to your core, "I can smell the fear off of you! It enrages me! For your life is not safe if you stay with me, I will allow you to pass through these 3 circles of hell, but only IF you can retrieve 3 things."

You knew there would be some trick but you play along anyway knowing there is no other way. "What is it you need of me, Minotaur?" you ask.  

He appraises you as though he may find you more appetizing than worthy of the journey, but the look passes and he continues. "From you Pilgrim, I need my tools; this gate is in poor repair. Bring me 3 tools with which I can repair the gate, and I will let you pass.  Bring me the wrong tools, you will end up where you do not wish to be. You need to visit one person from each circle of this violent world and bring the correct tool. Visit the outer ring, you will find your first clue there."

Moving aside, the Minotaur allows you to pass through to the 7th Circle of Hell: Violence. Within this circle, you see that there are 3 rings.

Your first glimpse of this hell was not far off what you thought you had seen: people immersed at different depths in a river of boiling blood and fire, at a depth to commensurate with their sins.

You take a deep breath and approach the first ring.

This is the end of the journey. Are we wiser or just more confused? Which way is the door? Where will it lead us... To our salvation or our oblivion?

We'll know soon enough...

I asked a question under the 3rd clue, because I'm not sure I understand the meaning of one word (English is not my 1st language), but the person who hid is says she doesn't know the answer. Could you please answer the question to me there, ^SanguineVamp?

how do you mean 'stuck'? they won't respond, or you can't find the answer?
