The wrath of MC more likely. Among the rumors heard in the Tavern in Sara's Tush was one that vampire prostitutes had been encountered in areas underneath the town. MC was inspired! He would explore the underbelly of the city in hopes of meeting a substitute for his lost (well, misplaced, actually) Hexxat. The first area explored was the basement of the old prison. There were indeed vampires, but none seemed interested in any close encounters other than the sanguinary kind. Still, there was a sub-basement level; surely they would find the more amatorily inclined vampires down there.
Not! The place was overrun with hostile warrior and assassin types, apparently in enemy employ. These caused a bit of trouble with their backstabs, but were eventually exterminated after some effort. Keldorn's true sight ability proved once more invaluable against lurking invisible assassins. Unfortunately, they also had some prisoners which MC released; his reputation rose as an unexpected side effect. Bah! The Bad Boyz might never speak to him again. Maybe it was time to "accidentally" fireball some innocent bystanders?
Well, OK, so that place was a bust. Still, the rumors did say the sewers were a more likely place to find trysting vamps, and a sewer key had been found in the barracks that had been raided. Sewers that needed to be locked up? What the heck was so precious down there that it needed to be so protected? Hah! Must be Grommet Khan's private harem!
No such luck. The place was swarming with Orogs (whatever those were), duergar diggers undermining parts of the town, and occasional battle mages serving the evil Yog-Sothoth. Interspersed with these were some odd horrors that may have inspired the vampire tales; at any rate, they were able of draining life levels. Not particularly attractive, though. These pesky things came in swarms, and gave some trouble until tactics were adapted to meet their particular threat, after which they proved little problem. MC wondered what a "devil shade" was. Looked like some sort of undead, but they seemed to totally ignore Anomen's False Dawn spell. Some sort of minor demon, perhaps?
Well, even though a way up into GK's tower seemed to have been found, MC wanted to explore the town further.
