Episode Nine

Returning by train from the jungle, Cala noticed a gunman observing the train from the far end of the platform, together with a number of other suspicious-looking folk crowding around the doors as it pulled in.

As the team left the train, they were attacked by those closest to them. Suspecting another attempt on Walker’s life by Lorcan Kell, Cala attacked the gunman, only to find that he had been assigned to the team by King Aodhan himself!

The Commissars are a new army unit set up by the King to give him better control over the armies defending the border against Danor. Each Commissar has the power of life and death over those in their command, and the right to bring the King’s political authority to bear when necessary.

The Commissar Act was signed by the King just a month ago, and Commissar Ciaphas Shae has been attached to the Serious Crimes Unit in order to observe how they deal with crime, both criminal and political. Their recent takedown of Reed Macbannin makes them the ideal place for Shay to learn those lessons, and then take them back to the King, where he can recommend how to apply them.

Shay commuted the prisoner’s death sentence to a spell in one of the military units on the Northern Front, and he was shipped off.

The assassins had freshly-inked Kell Gang tattoos, and earching the pockets of the attackers, the team find a note purporting to be from Kell, ordering Walker’s elimination. Wanting to force a confrontation with Kell, Cala and Sorvad pretended to take Walker prisoner, and the team marched to Kell’s Theatre, pretending to be a new gang in town who had captured Walker and brought him to Kell for torture and murder. Once there, it became obvious that not only did Kell not write the orders, but had told all of his gang to make no more attacks on Walker, finding the heat too problematic.

Visiting a tattoo parlour, the team met the tattooist who had inked the Kell tattoos – but not for Kell. His assistant, Stacy Sullivan, a heavily tattooed and pierced young woman, caught the eye of both Walker and Christian – and Walker arranged a date with her for 7pm the next night in La Restaurant.

The team tracked down the assassins to a hotel room, where it seemed that most of the assassins had been dosed with a slow-acting poison, so that they would be unable to talk if captured. One would-be assassin realised what was about to happen and removed himself from the attack before drinking. The Colonel, he said, was behind the attack, and gave an address where he could be found the next morning.

Episode Eight

A drunken Taura has been invited by Tiffany One to Cala’s House to play Ring of Fire. Cala interrogates her about her relationship with Christian and when she notices the Statue of Baphomet that Cala has been keeping under a cloth on the sideboard, is unceremoniously thrown out. The party breaks up fairly quickly after that.

Gathering for a train trip to the jungle where Doctor Zambria’s ill-fated expedition met their end, Walker almost misses the train due to an encounter with an Otyugh – a sewer-dwelling creature which lives on refuse and faeces. Walker doesn’t smell so good, despite spending most of the night in the shower. Christian uses a spell to change the smell to that of garlic. An improvement. Just.

In the jungle, the team find a ziggurat stuffed with traps reset by ancient mummies, almost certainly from the Ancient Goblin Empire. They also find the area where the three artefacts came from, and the use of Goblin Technology throughout the complex causes Walker to recall more of his previous life, and Sorvad to recall that his father once had a Goblin Safe which he told Sorvad contained his birthright… yet after his father died, when opened the safe proved to be empty.

As well as the source of the artefacts, the ziggurat contained a breach to another dimension, filled with creatures. When disturbed, the creatures attacked. Despite using his Badger Gun to defend himself, Christian was pulled through for a moment into the other dimension, where he saw thousands of the creatures. Although the creatures were destroyed and Christian returned safely, the attack has left him with a vulnerability to psychic damage.

On the opposite side of the temple, the team found a room containing maps representing the seals. And using the map, they found the location of a third seal.

It’s location? Directly beneath the main RHC watchhouse.
