Chapter 29: And He's Not Even The Big Bad
Damian, congratulations on your new assignment. The Shadow Guild wants you to ambush caravans passing from New Sorpigal to Ironfist or Free Haven. Under no circumstances are you to divulge that you have any connection to us, or the deal is off and you will find out what happens to those that betray us. Do as you are told and there won't be any problems.Guess who signed it? No clue? It's the Prince of Thieves...again! Between the Cult of Baa and the Shadow Guild, is there going to be any quest that doesn't involve one of these factions? Anyway, we go back down the corridor, and find ourselves at the room that the entry overlooked. Hooray for mini-map spoilers. Now we can Ring of Fire out the other thugs in there. They die fast. The natural cavern is bisected by a deep chasm, at the bottom of which are more slimes. We don't want to tangle with them, so we cross the bridge and open the door on the other side. There are two paths here, one to the north and one to the east. We go east, which leads to a room with two more thugs and a door...that won't open. Guess what? We need a switch! We go back to the other path, which leads north to a natural cavern bisected by another rift. The bridge here is a rope bridge and far narrower. On the far side of the chasm, more thugs sit there and wait to be pumped full of arrows. We oblige them. On the other side is a short passage to a switch altar. My psychic powers tell me this opens the door from before, so we hit it, then backtrack. This opened door leads to another elevator room. This time, they stuck one thug at the top. He dies. However, we're out of spell points again. Time to go rest up...and then finish this place up!
You know, the Cult of Baa sounds like it worships sheep, or animal noises. I suspect Old McDonald Had A Farm is their hymn.
Okay, now you're going a little overboard in trying to comment on every post.
You think I'm being annoying? Well, I'll grant you that. Now that I read what I just typed... Okay, yeah, that was pretty bad. Still, as I think I've mentioned, there's two reasons I post. First is to serve as a marker. "I've read up to this point." The second is a confirmation that I am, indeed, reading this. Perhaps it's just me that feels that constantly commenting is better than not typing anything at all. And thus you'd update in silence, with nobody saying anything at all, not even sure if anybody is reading.
Fair enough. Also, be sure to check out my new liveblog here, which deals with something else entirely, and I think is easier to comment on.
