The day started out like every other day.
I was in my office in the hive when she walked in. A shapely brunette that was all legs.
And I mean it. Just a pair of legs wearing a wig.
Creepiest damn thing I ever saw.
Okay. That was a gag.
On to the real story.
Our hero, Gimble, was helping out at Aleesha’s Pantry in the Hive Ward along with the Tiefling, Crunan Shadowborn, when an elven man entered and collapsed, but not before uttering the words “help me . . .”
After waking him up, our friendly neighborhood paladin, coaxed a story out of the elf’s beaten and bruised face.
“My name is Aeric Nolle. I’m a merchant and was traveling between Ecstasy and Tradegate in the Outlands with my daughter, Sarah, when some big bashers nearly put me in the dead-book and swiped my most precious possession, my daughter.”
Well, our noble hero did what he did best.
He ran to his friends.
Of course, Mikeala and Liam were eager to help, though I think Liam was more eager to get Mikeala off his head.
For some reason, she has decided to be a circus performer . . . .
Well, anyways, they head off to gather Akara while Gimble hears the full story from the elf.
And the hapless trio of Mikeala, Liam, and Akara get lost.
In the Hive.
And, to make matters worse, Mikeala steps in a puddle.
In the Hive.
In the City of Doors.
And, the ooze in the puddle nearly dragged her into the paraelemental plane of ooze.
Maybe Gimble should have given them directions.
Well, they finally make it to the pantry, only to hear the full story, when a clown bursts in demanding some jink from the elf.
A fight breaks out, the clown goes down, and in a moment of pure restraint, Akara stomps on his head.
Akara crushed the clown’s head with her boot. -natural 20 on a knocked out clown tends to do that
They then make plans while Aeric takes his leave to hide, but not before giving them an address.
They then decide to get more info from Aeric after nearly 2 hours of discussion. i think you’re exagerating -ed
They head to the Foundry District in the Lower Ward, hear Aeric being accousted by quite a few cutters who mop the floor with the group, killing Crunan in the process, and run off with Aeric.
To Be Continued.
