well, two more days untill the ball… yaaaay…
Apparently to have more chance to speak to the queenie, we need some representation.
After conferring with Nisel, we decided to head for some highborn woman called Isobel.
Nisel said she likes to collect things and brag about them. Maybe this strapping Goliath is just what she is looking for.
After a stop at the local clothing store (could have killed me right there), we got to meet the lady Isobel. She didn’t even give me a second look. And nothing we had to offer was of intrest to her…
She said we had untill 7:30 pm to show up with a trinket or we had lost our shance.
Then we heared of a travelling shopkeeper who dabbles in magical items. After some
searching we eventually found the store and after much and much and much attempts to haggle we settled on a belt that shanges dicks in cunts and cunts in dicks.
We made it in time with the belt to Lady Isobel and Lith stayed behind to show the lady how it worked I suppose?
The next morning, I woke up with a craving, and the Innkeeper sated it with plates full of bacon!!! Kreager even wrote me a poem about it: Bacon is red, Bacon is tough, one slice of bacon is never enough. GLORIOUS!!! Lith came back during breakfast from Lady Isobel. there was no comment. ofcourse not. There was bacon!!! the innkeeper also handed us a note saying the gnome and cat were already out, to go collect our clothes for the ball. Nisel also recieved a note saying the ball was postponed an extra day, something about Ogres at the city walls.
OGRES…. OUTSIDE….. well today might just turn out to become a great day. We three rushed out and found a guard to ask for the location of the ogres, but when we found one he discouraged us and instead directed us to the captain of the citywatch who had another job. Something about a disturbance in the For.. Sewers. Apparently an elderly fellow came telling that his altar was being robbed and such by unsavoury folk and requested aid.
After the promise of reward we headed towards the other boob of the city.
And then we entered the shithole, wading through shitty water, we came to a clearing. I thought I saw loot but what I found was a crappy situation, as three water tentacles rose up and attacked me. But after a short battle (if you can call it that) I shoved them out of the water with my shield, killing them instantly. and then I dove into the crap and found the loot… 1 copper coin. when we went onwards we found a large tunnel leading on but we first turned back and headed right, where we found the old man who came asking for aid. he was raving to himself and waving a staff with a poor excuse of a head on it around. After introductions he told us he wanted the proper head for his staff returend and the villains dealt with.
So we headed into the shit once more again. after a few steps into the bigger tunnel I was suddenly covered in a black oozing thing, biting my axe and armor. And when I swung at it, it split into three oozes. Shit went down and we headed back to the priest (Hamun), and after sacrificing some blood, he went into a trance and basically told us to use a distraction to get past the creatures, since they are blind and respond to sound. Kreager was more than happy to oblige to provide said Distraction. We managed to sneak past and after some more marching through the shit we came to a door with a man and a crocodile on guard.
Their day was turned to shit in a few fell strokes and then we busted the door open to find a room filled with animals in shitty conditions and two half ogres and a man.
the Half ogres posed no challenged, I would have rather tested my mettle on the Ogres outside the city walls, but beggars can’t be choosers. the man however, suddenly changed into a giant rat and I could not even hurt him!!! Luckily Kreager managed to step in and drive him bonkers.
We then found a some gold and some interesting itmes, one of which located a fake wall that lead us back to the entrance. We also found the head and returned it to Hamun, but also adviced him to move his altar out of the sewers because of that black ooze.
Afterwards we presented the heads of the villaisn to the captain of the guard and he assured us he would put in a good word for us with Lord Delanar.
After some much needed bathing and reparing we went back to the Inn and I ordered some more bacon.
