So you made it to the city! With the Hellboat quickly chomping on some boats.
Met a nihilistic bunny cleric who was happy to go word at you about The Abyssals like some living plot device! Turns out there are seventy seven devils living below the sea and their religion is mostly based around trying to make these things ignore them and go for other tasty targets.
Also explained a little about the Chroniclers of the Apocalypse, a bunch of scholars that were collecting knowledge with the purpose of compiling it before the end of the world. Also explained about the only legal adventuring guild in the area, a place called the Black Feathers Company.
So yeah. A little ghoul cat warned you not to go down a road because there was mines there but you guys decided to prod them anyway.
But then they EXPLODED EVERYTHING AND NEARLY GOT BLOWN TO BITS.
Tumbles was a candle but thankfully he has a magic cape of not being on fire that saved him a little.
So you ended up going there, met an old face [Elison. Bitch arse rabbit who was being used by the Vulture Beak group a long time ago] who was now working for this new guild. Fra went missing, met Dusty who decided to chomp on a hobgoblin corpse. She stole a bit of him with some bellows and put it in a jar
Then put that jar in a cauldron. Then freaked out and Tumbles was very brave and did his first ever exorcism!
So yeah contracts were signed. Sven got an awesome one and the rest got kinda subpar ones. At least some rooms were provided.
