We last left off at Cressida Croft’s room she gave us to manage our crew. She has given each member a tin star that says “Deputy of Corvosa, In Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
We re-read the mission given to us by Cressida:
“ Heroes of your caliber are what we need. We will be well compensated for providing our services. Many guards have deserted their posts. Some to take care of family, and some using the riots for personal gain. One in specific is Verik Van Caskerkan. He has gathered a group of guards and they have all deserted. She can’t pull anyone off to deal with him and doesn’t want any other guards to kill him or get infected by him. She wants us to deal with him. Him and his followers are in an abandoned butcher shop in Northgate called “all the worlds meat”. Capture him alive and return for interrogation, but if he makes it impossible, bring his body. Find out why he has deserted. $500 gold reward if returned alive, $250 if dead”.
We walk out of the fishery and notice something is on fire. It’s around midnight. We have been at the fishery since sundown. We see a thing in the street in front of us, shambling at 20ft per round.
Mike, who is running Enab, says “I am not going to be one running Aryeh’s fucking character while he is in what the fuck, Slovakia, and get him fucking killed”.Spax deferred running Enab to Ian who is taking notes so it was deferred to Mike.
It comes toward Enab saying “Enab, Enab, it was you!” Lando gets the sense the creature is happy, but smells revolting. He realizes the creature is grateful to Enab, doesn’t mean him any harm. BJS backs away from the creature and protects the children. We realize it’s a creature from the sewers and knows Enab.
