*Amorous say oh, wishes Targus’s Tribe good luck and departs
-Melf, the new Royal Vizier, teleports in; Blane convinces him that Amorous killed King Vincent Darkwater Kane, and Gregoria gives Melf the Crown (scalp and all)
-Melf locks the door, and teleports away telling Tarkin’s Tribe to stay there
-Targus’s Tribe discusses their options, Blanes says not to worry as they have the late (and not lamented) King Vincent Darkwater Kane’s epic letter of epicness
-Melf returns with a dozen guards, he tells Targus’s Tribe that he must unfortunately take them to the dungeon until Prince Timothy (King Vincent Darkwater Kane’s son) is made king
-Melf assures Targus’s Tribe that Prince Timothy will most likely honor his father’s deal with them (probably, kinda, maybe)

Comments

Sometimes kings die. Writing about it is worth 49 XP.

 

So you comment on Session 16, but not Session 15? Why do hate Session 15 so?

 

I was certain that I had done that. Ah well – it’s fixed now.
