"Just because I'm a tiefling -"

"That's not why people think you're a thief, it's the theft."

"Oh, but looting is fine when you do it?"

Permalink

"We're getting supplies for the Defender's Heart in an emergency and writing it down so the Church can manage restitution afterwards!"

Permalink

And it might be time-sensitive so we should probably get going on that if Hulrun doesn't have any further questions for us?

Permalink

I know it is idiocy to ever split an adventuring party but I kind of want to get Hulrun all the way back to the Defender's Heart lest he murder the next civilian he runs across who looks at him funny. 

Permalink

Ugh. She's in an adventuring party. She never wanted to be in an adventuring party. Do you think you can coax him? - also there. Are civilians there, who might look at him funny, if he can't be cured instantly with what they've got on hand.

- yeah. There's people who can stop him, but it could still easily get someone hurt. And he's going to try to seize control of operations from Irabeth and it's going to be a stupid mess but the alternative  -

 

- well, two alternatives, as I see it. One is to - let him wander around in this state and hope he kills more enemies than allies. I don't like it, but maybe it's our best option. 

The other is to knock him out in the middle of the next demon fight and then take him home, Irabeth'll be in a position to handle him by the time he wakes up. - that's a crime, to be clear. It is also what I'd do in your position.

Why in the middle of a fight, why not, like, now?

Permalink

It's less suspicious if it's in the middle of a fight. If you do it now Woljif and Hulrun's guards are going to suspect what's up. And not pick a fight about it, because they're not idiots, but -

Let's walk with him for a while and see how hard he is to - redirect - I mean, obviously it's not easy or he would have gone after the demon, but maybe it's doable and I really don't like walking around all these demons without all the help we can get, Ember won't cut it every time.

Seems reasonable to me.

Permalink

There are some demons up ahead, ripping apart a house to get to what sounds like a crying child inside.

Permalink

Well, hopefully Ember doesn't require cueing to sleep the demons??

Permalink

She's trying! She got one of the four - no, two of the four now. 

Permalink

Hulrun will in fact make himself useful with demon-killing; even with whatever's wrong with him he's stronger than any of them.

Permalink

Thank you! Uh - man, there's no good way to get the kid to Defender's Heart, is there -

Permalink

"Maybe we can wait until we've collected a bunch, and then some of us can escort them all back?"

Permalink

I guess I don't have a better idea. She goes in to collect the kid.

Permalink

The kid is hungry and super upset and clings!

Permalink

The house also contains some valuables not nailed down!

Permalink

As long as it's getting written down.

Permalink

Prelate Hulrun gets impatient with this and storms off to fight more demons.

Permalink

Uh, on your right, group of three of 'em! Bella tells him, scribbling down what Woljif is grabbing.

Permalink

And a human is running towards them from a different direction, perhaps drawn by the child's screams or by the sound of fighting.
