The next afternoon Olaf rolled out of bed to get ready for work. To his surprise, Oswald had already left having to some “important” paperwork. The string of arrests they were doing was clearly making a good impression. Oswald left a note instructing them to continue the investigation into the Seekers of the Lost cult. Kassam and Olaf gave each other a look and a smile. They knew several bars they could continue to look for clues. The first priority was mid-day meal.
They headed downstairs and ran into Thurrock, Olaf’s old classmate from his nobility classes. How had Thurrock found him? Oh yes, Olaf forgot he had lost his mask. Well Olaf didn’t like being found out, but Thurrock was a friend and a good guy. Olaf introduced Kassam and Mal Kashar to Thurrock. Olaf noticed that Thurrock was a little disturbed by Mal Kashar. Upon further questioning, it wasn’t that Mal Kashar was dead and still walking around. Olaf had seen Mal Kashar get killed and it still bothered him a bit that Mal was walking around after that. That didn’t seem to phase Thurrock though. Thurrock seemed put off by the fact that Mal Kashar regularly summoned Undead and wielded the unholy powers of darkness. Hmm, Thurrock had a good point there. Thurrock always had good points like that. Anyway, Olaf told Thurrock all about being a police investigators and the evil Seekers of the Lost they were tracking down. To Olaf’s surprise, Thurrock actually wanted to do some investigation. This was ruining Olaf’s day off, but again Thurrock had good point they should actually do something about the cult.
The group went to investigate the crypt of Kolm, one of the townspeople that was turned into a zombie. Their investigation did indeed reveal that the crypt was disturbed and someone turned him into a zombie. Olaf had no idea who, but fortunately the guilty person, Lando, revealed himself by ambushing the group. After the ambush, they investigated Lando’s room and found an oversized bag of Oreo’s (finally loot). Olaf continued to investigate Lando’s bed while the rest of the group looked elsewhere.
A couple hours later Thurrock was finally able to wake Olaf and informed Olaf they had note that was very incriminating to Odessa Rilantes at the Lamplighter’s guild. Hmm, that was important and Oswald should do something about that when he got back. Thurrock suggested that he could infiltrated the Lamplighter’s office and gather information. Wow, Thurrock was full of good ideas. Thurrock was successful and setup a secret meeting with Odessa at for 2:30am at a BAR! (Bless you Thurrock.) The meeting was clearly an ambush, which Thurrock was worried about, but Olaf assured him they were experts at being ambushed. The way to beat the ambush was for Olaf, Kassam, and Mal Kashar to slip into the bar as soon as possible and ambush the ambushers. And how would they slip into the bar unnoticed? Olaf, master of disguises, had that covered too. With fake mustaches and long blond wigs, no one would think they were anything more normal patrons at the bar. Thurrock would attend the meeting as bait and the rest of the group would leap out at just the right moment (well maybe step carefully). It was a perfect plan.
And the plan worked pretty well. They were successful at arresting Odessa and all of her employees, but Olaf was very disappointed in the amount of bar snacks there were to confiscate as part of the arrest. All the hiding and disguising had forced Olaf’s to miss his midnight meal. The lack of snacks was becoming a serious issue, but Olaf’s friends insisted they go investigate Odessa office BEFORE dinner. The investigation did reveal that Odessa was reporting into the Garroast, head of the lamplighter’s guild, and that his curio shop was lab where they were build building an unholy monstrosity. With that evidence secure, Olaf’s friends finally conceded to go to dinner. Olaf had just the place, his favorite all-night diner that he’d been visiting every night since he got to Eldolan.
On their way to Olaf’s diner, they ambushed by a two assassins, an unholy caster and a female, elven sniper. How did they possible find the group and how dare they attack BEFORE dinner. Olaf had taken too much today to suffer another delay to his most important meal. There was no time to waste. The caster summoned an unholy army of skeletons, but Olaf summoned the holy power of the Great Gold Wyrm to destroy them. The caster summon an unholy cloud of darkness which Olaf burst through to reach the caster (well took a few steps and panted some). Then Olaf used the strength of the Great Gold Wyrm to bash the caster to the ground. The sniper was also going to be an issue too, so Olaf used the spirit of the Great Gold Wyrm to blow the sniper off the roof. Olaf’s was not going to accept any more delays to dinner. They arrested both assassins. Thurrock took caster into custody, while Kassam let the sniper go in exchange for a date. It didn’t make sense to Olaf, but his stomach was growling too loudly to argue the point. At last, all the obstacles had been cleared between Olaf and his meal.
