“Viggo, I don’t know how I get caught up in these things. You see, Rufus and I were heading over to that place…warehouse that you said I could find Rylos to get us a dimebag. Well, Rylos wouldn’t sell me one, but instead directed me to some other guys that did offer to sell me one for a silver. No, I didn’t get a chance to smoke it, but it smells like some good shit.
“Anyway, I watched one fight between four dudes and a spider-thing that had one eye. That thing took out three of them, but one of them kicked it’s ass. I think we should find hi…Yeah, he was human.” spit "But a badass and probably would work with us. I don’t think he was there voluntarily.
“I met this guy…Khalid from Ka-deer-ah. He was nice and talked to me like you do, not like those humans do when they talk down on me. Well, he is some kind of merchant of magic items and I bet we can get some really useful things from him. Did I tell you he was able to just disappear in thin air. It was awesome!
“Oh, it gets better. So then they had a fight between two chicken-thingies, but they weren’t chickens. One of them turned the other into stone….Yeah I know, unbelievable!
“Oh shit, I just remembered. Thessian the Thespian can’t be trusted. He hired me as a mercenary, but then when I got him out of trouble, he reneged on his payment. I think we need to get him back somehow
“Why did he need rescuing? Oh yeah. So after the chicken’s fought, some devils appeared out of thin air and started attacking everyone. That’s when Thessian hired me to protect him. You see, the devils fires couldn’t hurt me; me being a tiefling and all.” He makes the sign of Asmodius over his heart and says, "Thank my Oni ancestor.
“So the little devils were killing everyone and I met a priest of Iomedae named Arail? Aerial? Something like that. He bless me in the name of Iomedae and I helped him fight one of those metal spider-thingies with my storm blasting power. No, he is part elf so is okay. But this other guy, Wesley. He is a human and I don’t know about him. He took Iomedae’s blessing then tried to run away. He came back though and helped kill the spider and we got out of there in the nick of time.”
“Oh! Yeah, so those little devils had this summoner with them. He thought he controlled them, and he did, but the little devils got the best of him. Yeah, the little devils could conjure fire demons and they sent the fire demons after the summoner dude. Killed him I think. Well, he must of died in the explosion….Yep, the devils blew the place up. Anyway, Areal has an offer for us. He wants us to meet his friend and help change things around here. Yeah, like what we have been trying to do but big-time. I think we might be able to make a difference against those human scum that enslave us all. Yeah, I think Rufus liked him.”
