Look at this. You can tell if a place waters down their ale by how the foam acts. This one builds up to a good head, so that means that it’s a good brew that they’re not tainting with water. What? Oh, yeah, I was in the middle of that story, wasn’t I?
So Yoon got captured by this torturer, right? Well, lucky for her, Willow was watching this all and came running to get us. We came charging in, kicking open his front door and barreling in. The man was standing there in a bloody apron, but then changed into some kind of devil covered in chains. It was a good fight since he had some magic that made some of the chains hanging in the room come alive and attack us, but in the end they all got smashed and the torturer got stabbed through the eyes by Yoon. She had managed to escape her bonds during the fight and was more than a little keen to do to him what he’d been doing to her.
Once that was dealt with, we burnt his house down. Maybe that wasn’t a good idea, but we’re talking about a place that had been inhabited by a devil that had tortured and killed who knows how many people there for who knows how long. I didn’t feel any regrets seeing that place go up in flames. Yoon told us that when she was first captured that there was some blond woman there who bewitched her mind enough to get her captured. After asking around, we found out that this woman was none other than the Viscount’s daughter. It was certainly looking more and more like the Viscount was more than just an unwitting pawn in all this, but before we could formulate any plan about how to move forward on this, who should show up at our ‘secret’ hideout but the blond woman herself!
Yes, she was alone. Said she wanted to talk. For some reason, the others brought her in and we listened to her. She told us that the Viscount was both a vampire and the current leader of the Underhand but that since he was using his power to gain wealth, power, yadda yadda yadda, that he was no longer fit for his position. She said she’d help us dispose of him in return for her assassins dropping their attacks on us. The others made it clear that they were okay with this, though they did try to add some things into the deal. But me? It was obvious that she was as much of a vampire as her father was. Now, I’m no paladin but there are some things in the world that just need killing. I count vampires as one of them. They struck their deal, but after she left, I told the others that I intended on killing her as well if the opportunity presented itself. The world certainly would be a better place without assassins and vampires hiding in the night, you know?
