Running, Running, Fast as he Can
With the Mandrake and his life intact Garcon heads back to Baba Yaga’s hut.
Jackson doesn’t like the finality in Bonehead’s “bye” He orders the hut to sit and enters the hut once more:
Not this again…
Do you think he’ll make it?
What terrible magic will Baba Yaga create now that Danar has provided her with such a potent spell component? Is the Spielburg Valley doomed forever?!
… I guess the only thing Baba Yaga plans on doing to the inhabitants here is making their stomachs churn.
*hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
Okay let’s see how Garcon is doing here:
Perseii being unable to figure out what he was supposed to do next to counter the curse heads back to town, maybe a drink woould help him?
At the bar he finds a note:
A lead! Jackson knows this is going to break this curse wide open! He can feel it! He’s going to head right over to the range at noon, tomorrow
yeah, tomorrow. Today? Today, he’s going to get trashed.
Let’s Try those Drinks
Ale?! What am I some sort of sissy? Ale is for children and the elderly! Not virile young heroes! What else ya got?
Best! But as my mom always said, “Breath befor Sweat you’ll regret!” So Troll Sweat first!
Maybe it was “Breath before Sweat you’ll never regret?”
And ever since then Garcon has been a teetotaller… Anyway, didn’t that note say to meet up around noon at the old range? Perseii heads there now:
Bruno and Brutus continue their clandestine conspiracy:
Long winded gits, aren’t they?
Blah, blah, blah
There’s nothing I dislike more than a dishonest thief! These two are in mind to make the criminal element in this valley their own private monopoly! No one cuts out the Guild! No one! All that talk about a backdoor is interesting too! Let’s go see if we can find one!
It bounces, could this thing be guarding the hidden back door to the Bandit’s Hideout?
we shoo the Antwerp off and investigate the rocks:
Okay, that seems like something we can handle. Didn’t the Thieves Guild sell a Thief kit? Let’s go pick one up and head back here!
After picking up the thieves kit Jackson returns to the door and pick the lock:
But! Danar doesn’t appear to be strong enough to move the massive rock door aside…
Welp, this is a problem that can be dealt with through a grinding montage:
After slaying countless goblins and brigands as well as sweeping out the Baron’s stables once more Seepgood thinks he is strong enough to move the stone door. He is also exhuasted, so before he busts this curse wide open he gets a good night’s rest:
What was that important phrase Bruno kept insisting Brutus not forget?
Next time we leave the troll alone…
We’re so close to the end I can taste it! It’s creamy like the center of a milky way bar! Next week we wrap QFG1 up!
