I have avenged my family. I hope my family can rest easy now.
We came to The Staglord’s fortress. And I tried scouting, but the place seems to have been built on cursed ground. Anytime something live goes on the hill it’s on top of a hoard of undead appear. The only exception was the path that goes to the front door.
So after botching the scouting job I figured that it would be easier to talk my way in. And I was making some headway, but soon discovered that there was a pass-phrase that we didn’t get out of our captive before murdering him. Or executing him, since that is called when it’s an official murder.
Anyways, they drop us in a pit and toss in some sleeping gas bombs. And soon everything when dark.
When I woke up most of my weapons and gear was gone, except for my picks a pair of daggers, and my sling. After a quick headcount we discovered that Ami was gone. I figured she got away because that lady is good, and Betzy. Sadly we were chained to a wall a few feet from a rabid owlbear. On the other side of the caged bars there was a man who made us an offer. He would look the other way if we killed the Bitchlord and let him take the place. I know my thoughts were “Sure, then we kill you because it is still our job.” So after agreeing to the deal he unlocks the bars, and we escape.
I got a little confused, because I was about the end the suffering of the rabid owlbear, but everyone stopped me. The thing was obviously rabid.
We discovered that the man had killed all the guards in the bunk room, but not the one in the supply room. Who reminded me a little bit of Sieggy.
Anyways a short and fairly quiet fight later he is knocked out, and here is the next mistake. He wakes up when Mal and Sig are tying him up and starts to yell out “LORD!”
Eka and I go to the Stagass’s door, and were about to try and get it open, when from the far stairs more of the Bandits start to fire arrows.
So it was a fight, but I was so close to my revenge I could almost taste it. Eka and I hear the bastard stumbling around retching knocking things over in a drunken stupor. We figured he was still in a bad state from the night before but was trying to get ready. So As quickly as I could I popped the lock, an impressive feet mind you. Sadly that was almost our downfall.
The Stagbitch was playing possum. He was up and ready when the guard started yelling. He shot me and nearly took me in the heart. But I was not going to let Eka face the bastard alone, and I wanted his blood.
The fight was brutal. Eka and I went down. Asslord’s helmet seemed to make him able to aim for our most vital spots. So I figured “fuck, this is how it goes. THe bastard gets away.” But then I woke up. A vial of healing potion floating above me, and the Stagcunt’s back to me. So I had a choice. Save Eka, or try and go for the kill. A quietly as I could I moved over to Eka and fed her a healing potion while Siggy and Fuckface exchanged a ton of arrows.
At this point I was vaguely aware of it raining blood in the room Siggy was standing in. I should have been a more curious, but I saw that Ami and Bettzy were back, and coated in blood. So the math added up.
Anyways, With Eka back on her feet I took a moment then Stabbed the Staglord in the back.
I felt him take his last breath. And it felt good. Justice was done. Father would have been proud it was his blade that made the killing stroke.
As much jubilation I felt it was short lived. The duelist that let us out of the cell came out of hiding, knocking out Siggy. He wanted to duel Eka. A one on one honorable duel.
We of course would have none of it and ganged up on the stupid fuck. After killing him we were left in a room still raining blood. A little while to rest is in order and then taking everything that isn’t nailed down. And then getting the pry-bar and taking the rest.
Oh yeah, and then take the Bastardlord’s head to the river ghost and get me un-cursed.
