He's looking to see a priest. Any priest will do for what it seems.

Then Morte looks at the local priest.

See, if you stepped out and had a chat with the godslayer, that would make him leave without any further destruction, and you would then be able to claim great glory for yourself and your church for having driven him back.

Or you could be killed horribly. But even then you'll achieve great glory, and you'll have bought time for the rest of us to get to safety. Plus I'm sure your god will ressurect you for the trouble, or at least give you a great afterlife.

To the priest: "She's right, you know. At least about the first part. I'm not sure your god would resurrect you for hiding."

"The Gawds have ordered no contact with him on pain of worse than death.  Even if one of us survived the confrontation we'd have a price on our heads every other Cleric on the street would be all too willing to collect."

"Oh and we think we have a lead on what prophecy your young man is after.  *hands u copy*

"Our best advice is keep him out of trouble and try to head off whoever is trying to manipulate things.  Bye now."

The world fades out and you are now back out on what seems to be a random street in the Merchant's District, and are nearly run over by a speeding coach.

There's a lot of yelling about some sort of major military incursion at the Street of the Gawds and people are alternatively grabbing weapons and heading off, or bolting their doors.  A small, floating bespectacled gopher poofs into existence.

"Benny sent me.  What the fuck is going on?"

"Oh, something about some god-killer who makes it rain demanding to see a cleric on the Street of the Gawds. I don't understand why they can't just sit down and talk, but whatever."

Mustave looks around. Is the boy present?

The boy is indeed present, as you all suddenly find yourselves in the basement confronting the Gawd of Fear, i.e. Benny.

"The Rain is here?  Where?"

"The Street of Gawds. He wants to see a cleric, but I don't know why. Morte, here, talked to him, so she might know.

Other than that, we've been teleporting, or something, and I'm kinda confused as hell."

"The Church teleported you off the Street, and I sent my friend to chat with you.  I can see and hear what he does so the minute you mentioned The Rain I brought you back here."

"Ah. Makes more sense, now.

So, who is this guy, apart from some renown god-killer? How does he do it, and what is he after?"

"He wants my ex-wife dead so he can gain enough power to challenge the Man Upstairs and leave this realm.  He also wants a few assorted lifetimes of revenge for all the people who've died along his quest.  How he does it is anyone's guess, he attained his abilities long before most of the current Gawds came to power.  Indeed I am only a deity because of his brutally murdering my predecessor.  The more of us he kills the more powerful he seems to get.  He's practically a Gawd himself now.  He limits himself as to the killings in some way, but we don't know why.  He generally only seems to kill Gawds as he believes they overstep their bounds, but we don't officially know what that overreach is.  He's always disliked my ex, I just don't think he's ever had the raw power to take her on.  If he's appeared here though, it suggests you will have a period of calm regarding Natasha's clergy.

*looks at Morte*

"The Rain could swat you like a fly.  I would avoid talking to him in the future unless he does not give you the option.  Did one of you get what you were looking for vis a vis the Prophecy?"

"They gave me a copy of something. I have yet to read it, what with the teleporting, and all."

Mustave produces the copy.

Morte smiles mischievously:

It's precisely because I knew he can swat me like a fly that I chose to speak with him. Just wanted to try to make acquaintances with him. He looks like the sort of person you want to be on the good side of.

"No one is on the Rain's 'side'.  He regards everyone as either a current or potential future obstacle, or as not being worth the time to kill.  It is also quite desirable to not be associated with him as his enemies may become yours."

"The Prophecy was written by an old civilization no longer extant that I'll bet exists where your client does now.  They worshiped the Pantheon of Virtue, who are anything but virtuous.  Those fuckers are so uptight they could consider virtually anything an abomination, and a woman capable of witchcraft because she wears a skirt showing her ankles.  Honestly unless someone has looked at this and thinks they can somehow benefit from it by manipulating either the Chosen One or events following the Prophecy he should be just fine."

"So, in other words, he could fulfill this prophesy before dinner and not even know it.

Prophesies seem stupidly pointless."

"They can be.  You might wanna go upstairs, someone's about to hammer on your front door."

He hands you back the Prophecy.  You walk out of Benny's basement room to discover your client cowering in the hall. 

You suddenly remember people aren't supposed to know Benny is here.  He's probably been there since you got back.

"Oh, hey, guy. We got teleported, I guess. I was hoping you were brought with."

Mustave looks to the front door. "I think we're supposed to have company, soon."
