BBQChapter10.png

Chapter Ten: Darkness

Asali, sporting some serious crazy face, decides to check out her dimly lit basement. Finding spoiled food and a refrigerator sporting a combination lock. Asali decides that the most prudent way to solve this lock problem is to hit it with a hammer. Failing that, she finds the combination under a tablecloth next to the fridge. Upon unlocking her own refrigerator Asali receives her prize, a tentacle monster. Fortunately this is a problem that CAN be solved with a hammer(and copious amounts of crazy eye).

Making her way back to the chasm, Asali encounters a creature with a terrifying visage, so terrifying in fact that she opts to teleport to Ikit's shop rather than try and deal with it. While here, Asali obtains some alcohol for a perfectly HONEST price and opts to tour Ikit's not-quite-a-dungeon basement for where he evidently hosts animal fights. Placing the winning bet wins Asali just enough points to buy out the last of Ikit's stock. Out of the kindness of his heart Ikit decides to pawn off the winning animal on Asali, earning her free teeth to the face.

Next Asali stops by Mint's house to get hammered, drilled and have some questions answered. Learning a bit more about the current state of the island and the disaster that ravaged it Asali decides to put off a visit to the Marina anytime soon and visits the strange landmark instead. Upon using her pendant on it, it is revealed to be a pit trap. Go figure.


BBQChapter11.png

Chapter Eleven: Survival

Ahem, In chapter 11 we are introduced to a slew of new characters who shopped out of the bargain bin when buying their plot armor. They seem to have been thrown into a scary dungeon, built by an architect with a heavy handed opinion of what constitutes re-formative imprisonment(its filled with death traps). REALLY YOU SHOULD PROBABLY READ THIS ONE INSTEAD OF A CHAPTER SUMMARY.

This chapter stars:

Jasper: A bubble touched trap nerd in for unknown reasons

Nic: A bubble touched thrown in for conspiring against the king

Epsilon: thrown in for being Epsilon

Celzt: A blind bubble touched in for accidentally electrocuting something.

Jack: A former freedom fighter thrown in for being upsetting the peace.

Shula: A pangolin miner thrown in for rioting.


BBQChapter12.png

Chapter Twelve: Reunion

Asali returns. After briefly retracing the steps of the previous chapter's events she finds the disabled robot body of one of the dungeon's previous inhabitants and, in a move that would be totally creepy with any other kind of body, decides to take it along to see if she can fix it. Moving along the rest of the dungeon she finds a secret passage in the dungeon leading to a hall of mirrors and eventually a throne room, which connects to the exit. After leaving the dungeon, Asali quickly hurries to the the queen of the flowers to find her withered and dying. However it is now apparent that the Flower Queen's blight is being caused by a darkened tentacle beast on account of it deciding that now that the flower queen is critically wounded it would be a good time to throw down. After throwing down Asali is quite hurt and stumbles off to epsilon's hideout to recover and upon seeing a bed decides the best course of action is to lay down on it and slip into unconsciousness. While unconscious a spirit shows up and asks her to come on down and visit him and his master. Upon waking up, having decided that the shit she sees while she's asleep is still more freaky than the shit she's seen while awake, Asali discovers that Mint has found and performed first aid on her. After some Q&A and T&A and acquiring a new outfit, Asali decides to see what that spirit was on about and moseys on down to the ice cave. In the entryway she is confronted by a band of animals offering their service as spirit guides(not really) (maybe). Heading into the cave she meets River Styx, the aforementioned Spirit's master. After more Q&A, less T&A, Asali convinces River to craft her a new hammer. Asali then clarifies again,by way of asking River, that she is some sort of undead. Next Asali takes the robot body to Gamma to see if he can fix it. She then takes a look at the Mariana, finding what appears to be a scary haunted-ass house with no immediate way to enter. She then tries the chasm again, where epsilon appears and offers some assistance. And so they head off to candy mountain (actually just up the mountain they're currently in).

Chapter Thirteen: Prisoner

Epsilon, having gotten better after getting dead, is returned to the labyrinth. Whereupon he discovers the labyrinth is now under maintenance and that he is still nude. He chooses to amend this by accosting a maintenance worker and stealing his clothing, providing him with a cover to navigate the dungeon with less hassle. He then quickly puts this cover to the test by murdering an angry guard, molesting two other workers and then killing the Duke in front of an armed cadre of guards. Epsilon is then shot,shot, then shot ,shot once more, shot again and arrested. In jail epsilon opts to meet Shula when offered by the guards. Shula fills him in with the grisly details of what has happened since he departed and offers to carry his words to the rest of the group. After coming to an agreement Shula agrees to create a distraction in another part of town so epsilon can escape. Shenanigans ensue in the form of a candy dispensery,bank robbery and bank bomb threat while epsilon escapes. The dungeon crew, decides it is time to leave the island behind them,certainly now after having possibly committed multiple felonies, but not before Epsilon can feel up Celzt one last time. Tasked with strange goals from a possibly mad entity, Epsilon decides that it is probably time for not only a new disguise but to earn some money and settle in so he can do them uninterrupted. He sets course for the most legitimate purveyor of fine goods on the island, Honest Ikit, to seek work and also bargain for supplies. Predictably accepting a job to acquire 3 different nude photographs of women Epsilon sets out to the forest to camp for the evening, whereupon he runs into an old acquaintance (rather she runs into his security snare trap). Also predictably they have sex, earning his first nude photograph(of that particular month). Epsilon is then accosted by a soldier allegedly dispatched to find him and,upon discovering that Epsilon is not keen on being killed a third time, quickly apologizes by dying. This is followed by a brief dialogue with another party wandering the forest where it is revealed that another soldier sent to find Epsilon was dispatched by Mint Orach. Epsilon later goes on a date that goes particularly well, earning him his second nude picture and realizing that he is in fact a shapeshifter takes the third, earning him enough money to rent an apartment

(and also a dog)

(He's buying the dog, not renting it)
