Totally NOT my fault!
Lord Evil Guy still wants me to deliver a message to that stupid Percival. I even have to give it to him when he's not dead, which is SO unfair. I found him back in Lord Meriddyn's tower, it can't be helped if he was lying face down in his batman underoos.
Truth be told, I think mostly Lord Evil Guy is tired of keeping Princess Melinda around and the local Lair Depot was out of quicklime. She's pretty, but she's not very bright. I bet Melinda isn't her real name. I bet her real name is Kristy. She sure ACTS like a Kristy. And she did have a thing for that monk.
Anywho. I'd decided to do some research this time before heading out. I went to the library and looked through back issues of Heroes Quarterly for talk about this Percival guy. I already knew he was the son of that Sukiyama guy, but come to find out he always carrys around Sukiyama's sword. It's like his security blanket.
Apparently, when he doesn't have it, he's a total wuss. Bats aren't even scared of him.
So, I switched over to Heroes Quartered, and found an evil spell to track down Sukiyama's sword. This was going to be like walking in cake, only with less of that squishy feeling you get when the frosting and Devil's food goes through your toes.
Here's one for you: Why did the Paladin fall of the swing? Because he had no arms.
I cast the spell, and was off, and found myself face to face with six adventurers.
Those people. Again.
No Percival anywhere to be seen, and the big one looked like he thought I was an single-serving insta-level XP snack pack of joy. He has dual-wielding bastard swords, and the one in his left hand looked an awful lot like Sukiyama's sword.
What is with those people? Don't they have anything better to do than make my life miserable?
That's Lord Evil Guy's job, and he's really good at it. Newsflash, he doesn't need your help!
Another one: Why did the Paladin fall out of the tree? Because he was dead.
Looks like when these jerks stole his sword, the big whiner decided he was just going to stay there dead and refused to homepoint. It's not like he died in a cut scene or anything. Whiner.
