Surrounded by disgusting meat-zombies and the Dread Necromancer himself, Mad Moodey, Team Trust stands back-to-back in preparation for battle. Moodeey seems confident of his impending victory as he orders his undead to attack, but he isn’t aware of our heroes’ new trump card…
With a dark grin, the once-Good cleric Jilqwyn raises her hands as dark purple magic begins flowing from her moose-headed pendant. “Maybe you haven’t heard, Moodeey,” she says, “but I have started dabbling in the dark arts as well. Behold!” And with that, she uses her new Bone Knight necromancy to turn Moodeey’s own undead creations against him, evening the tide of the battle just enough to give Team Trust the upper hand. With one powerful blast from his Staff of Transmutation, Yu’in disintegrates Moodeey, thrusting his body into a furnace, seemingly killing him. The undead crumble, and Team Trust victoriously emerges from the Suckling Swine, although Itto is none-too-pleased at Jil’s newfound dark powers.
Returning with the ingredients needed for Slink to alchemize a cure for the Ghoul Fever plague, our adventurers return to Lady Loraaga’s medical tent. Along the way, Jil uses Remove Disease to cure herself of her own Ghoul Fever, but Lute, still infected, opts not to waste the spell and to wait for the mass cure. What could go wrong??
Upon arriving back at the tents, they are shocked to discover that Loraaga is not there, but rather her Bailiff, the cleric Prosadi Charster. After a brief interrogation using Jil’s Candle of Truth, Charster reveals that Loraaga (as well as Itto’s new fanboy Smeg) has been kidnapped by members of the Red Knives and brought back to…you guessed it…the sewers.
While Slink begins on the cure and Jil tends to the sick and wounded, the rest of Team Trust rushes to the sewer, where they remember seeing the headquarters of the Red Knives. When they arrive at the front door, they realize that they need a password to enter, and their one Red Knife member (Slink) is back at the hospital…Never a gnome around when you need one, amirite?!
