Vel Scurra

Bastards, Bitches and Creeps

It really irritates me sitting in a jail being questioned by the Black Hand when I’ve done nothing and they are the ones that killed my father! That’s Vel Scurra justice for you. After hours of confusing questions, getting absolutely nowhere, the commander finally takes a break and lets us rest. Bastard.

In my cell I’m surprised to see Michael walk in. He sure is turning out to be very handy to have around. In Black Hand garb he gets all of us out of there with no problems. Off we go to Birner Station to see Dexter where apparently there is some kind of portal back to “our” Vel Scurra. The Vel Scurra where Dexter isn’t a murdering bastard. Oh wait, he’s always been a murdering bastard. Before we step through, though, Michael starts saying some stuff about how he and I might not be there after we go through and how I’m not really me. It all makes little sense but that is not unusual as of late. We need to escape before the Black Hand figure out they were duped so we step through without too much thought.

I hear the clock chime 8:00 shortly followed by some clanking sounds as a tray of food is shoved into my cell. Yummy. Being wrongfully imprisoned has some perks it seems. One of the Black Hand idiots then comes to escort me to Lady Moorhead. It wasn’t the warmest reunion. Back at her house, I question her creepy lawyer, Mr. Yager, about this supposed debt my father has to the Moorhead family. He tells me the debt is for 8,000 gold for “services rendered”. Oh my gods. I’m only making 1 gold a week so they want me to serve here for the rest of my life!

I was at least able to get some form of proof out of the greasy creep. He showed me papers, signed by my father, for the money loaned.
Star of Eleuthisa 4,000 gold
Temple at the Edge of Dreams 2,000 gold
The souls of those who despair 2,000 gold
Looks like the money came from Connor Moorhead. The last one also referenced someone named Krede Lesna who sold the “souls” or whatever. This all sounds very suspicious. I had no idea my father had such a huge debt let alone working for any kind of religious organizations. Especially ones with super creepy names. Oh well, have to get to work since there is no more information I can glean out of this.

I was worried about Saffron’s Whiskers, what with the recent cockroach infestation and me being confined here. I was thinking about Ajax and how I wish he could help me and lo and behold he showed up! The strangest thing took place then as I felt our bond somehow grow very strong and I could even hear his thoughts! I was able then to communicate to him that I wanted him to go protect and explore my borough. Very cool!

Just another day, maiding it up. This wasn’t all that fun before, but now that I’ve had the taste of adventure it reeeeallly sucks. What I wouldn’t give to swing my sword into some hideous monster, preferably with a face like Mr. Yager. I heard from the other help that apparently the Black Hand have been bothering Lady Moorhead and even threatening her. Hmmm, maybe she isn’t the rich evil bitch in this situation.

I tried to go talk to Mr. Yager to see if I could get any more information but when I touched the handle to his door it turned into a serpent and struck at me! This guy is definitely not what he seems. Somehow he became even creepier than he already was. He did talk to me a bit, making threats as he leered down his greasy nose. Later I overheard him talking to a stern lady, having something to do with me. I was caught eavesdropping and had to miss the conversation.

Just to make my employment/slavery here even more atrocious I walked into the bathroom and there was a naked man there! When I left the room in shock he had the nerve to follow me out bold as you please then walk into my Lady’s bedchamber. Well, it looks like Lady Moorhead is doing more with her time than making herself look pretty.
