There is a loud peal of thunder as the rain intensifies.  There are the loud reverberations of a Giant's footsteps, and you can hear the cries of Sphinxes.


Acolyte: "Omigawd they brought in the army. 

*Suddenly notices you all*

"Oh...um...hi.  Um...are you here for a reason?  We might be temporarily interrupted by a small battle or attempted deity assassination."

"We were just looking for information on a prophesy. This other thing seems kinda important, though."

"Prophecy?  Prophecies are always interesting.  We're all probably going to die in a ball of fire soon, so I see no harm in helping you."

*looks at the kid*

"Ah you must be the target of said prophecy.  Come with me."

There's a lot of people/things outside screaming something to the effect of 'kill him'

"Thanks... I'll be right back..."

Mustave goes to check on the chaos ensuing outside.

At your end of the street you see an army of the best casters and monsters the city has to offer.


At the other end is a lone man whom you can barely make out as he is the center of the inclement weather.  Wind and rain obscure him from view, and it suddenly occurs to you when they were saying "the Rain is outside" that they weren't referring to the weather...

Mustave goes back in:

"So, apparently there's a lone man causing one hell of a storm, and he appears to be opposed by half the city.

Do we wanna go out there and pick sides?"


He looks at one of the acolytes: "So, who is 'The Rain' out there?"

"Legend has it he's some cursed mercenary with a vendetta.  He kills Gawds.  He's responsible for a lot of people being promoted to deityhood via him killing the previous Gawd.  Might be one himself by now."

Your client looks a little taken aback.

"Hmmm. Seems a little dumb to directly oppose him, then."

What are they doing regarding the kid and explaining the prophesy?

Chatting with him about the specifics of his prophecy while they look through records.

"He's opposed because he has a reputation for major trouble and strife following him wherever he goes.  It's a sure sign if he shows up that bad shit is going down somewhere,"

"If Rain is so terrible, and so undefeatable, then why is he opposed? It seems to make more sense for a God, and his worshippers, to run from this one's presence, and preserve themselves against him."

"The Goddess of Death, among other Gawds, has a price on his head.  Plus there's a rumor you get promoted to Gawdhood if you successfully whack him.   Plus there's another rumor that there's a curse on him that compels people to fight.  Also, sometimes he doesn't give you a choice.  You get the idea."

The hesitation that had fallen over the current situation was staggering. Morte decided it was time to take action.

If he was here for a fight, he would've already started it.
Which means he wants something else.
Since it looks like we can't properly focus on the prophecy while he's outside in a stand off, I'm gonna have a chat with him. Because clearly fighting won't work.



Morte would then do good in her words, get out of the building, summon back her boat, and slowly approach this Rain fellow, going around the massed city troops. Making sure to make no sudden moves, hold her scythe down, keep a business smile on her face. When she was near enough to make sure she was gonna be heard clearly, she spoke:

Hi there! You seem a bit lonely. Can I offer you a ride somewhere? Free of charge, on-the-house just for you.
Perhaps go to a bar, share a drink or two to warm up? You look like you could use some relaxing.
Or is there anything or someone you're looking for?

There is some uproar from the crowd as you head toward him, but surprisingly you do make it there.


It's kind of difficult rowing towards him because the closer you get the stronger the winds and rain become.  You actually have to yell a  little to make your voice heard.

He looks at you clearly surprised and says:
"I'm here to see a Priest."

The Clerics begin retreating into their Churches behind you.

Morte smiles under the rain. It seemed her hunch was right. She yells back:

A priest? Any priest? Or would you rather meet with one of a specific creed or god? I can go and convince one of those coward clerics to come meet you here. It seems you understand they wouldn't be much overjoyed if you just walked inside one of their churches, so I can work as a messenger to set up an encounter.

"I do not need a messenger.  Nor do I care about what they feel."

He begins slowly marching forward, and the tempest marches with him.


Those inside the temple:  A bunch of Clerics muttering "fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck" come in and begin barricading the door.

"Isn't that just going to piss him off more? You'd think running would be more productive than barricading."

"We're hoping the barricade will hold long enough for us to Teleport everyone out."

"Wait, you're still here?"

Feeling that words won't help anymore, Morte  rows as fast as she can back to the temple where the party was. Once she realizes the door is barricated, she gently knocks the locked entrance with her scythe, just loud enough to make sure it is heard.

I go to try to help you, and you shut me out here? How rude. Now let me back in, or I'll open an entrance myself.

Also, that guy just wants to have a chat. And he's gonna have his chat. The faster you give him his chat, the less senseless devastation will happen. I'm sure your gods would be pretty pleased if this pretty temple wasn't reduced to rubble.

You are promptly teleported inside.

"Were not barricading it against him, were barricading it against the potential victims who will want inside."

"Oh, that makes more sense. Morte, is he coming here here, or just to this section of town? What's he wanna talk about?"
