    Felandria is now, in addition of extremely suspicious, rather confused.

    Wait....

    I’m not allowed to talk about this with the other people who know about it?

    Shouldn’t you be more worried about me telling the people who don’t know?

    And why can’t I talk to them about it, are you telling them something different than what you tell me?

    Also, I don’t remember actually signing any papers, I just gave you a few of my hairs.

    I was really hoping you would be able to set my mind more at ease, and thus far, that hasn’t happened.

    "I am Matron Bloodsong's second son," says the horned half-orc. "I have one adopted sister and two half-brothers, one elder and one younger."

    Kyran takes a swallow of his ale, stroking his beard contemplatively before he continues his explanation.

    "About 20 years ago, my mother was a dreadful warlord. The great Khan of the Red Grasses was the terror of a dozen nations. Unsettled races of all kinds were part of the Khan's horde: orcs, minotaurs, lizardmen, centaurs. No army could defeat them on the field, no wall could hold them. Eventually, however, the great Khan tired of conflict, and settled down and retired, with her vast wealth, to live out the rest of her days in peace."

    "A few of our clan came with us.The rest our with my brother."

    Kyran nods grimly.
    "The bulk of my mother's horde now follows my brother Menggetu, who names himself the great Khan," he says. "My mother does not see the threat he poses to us, or perhaps, she chooses not to. If my brother wished only to go his own path, and form the clan in his own image, perhaps I too would be content to leave the matter be. But I fear that he has turned out to be both jealous and vindictive, and I wish to protect my mother, and my clan."

    "Plus, I have no desire to have my own head mounted on a spike, after being hanged and burned as a witch." Kyran grins - an impressively pointy and toothy one, even for an orc, the red in his eyes giving off an infernal glow, like two hot coals. "My half-brother and I rarely got along."

    "This kind of leader will rarely leave a predecessor alive or unbothered," Dipsnig muses, to show that he understands the situation. "If only because they fear that they'll be seen as weak for not disposing of them. And it seems it's more personal for your brother. It seems like a problem MERC can help you with, though."

    Kyran nods grimly.

    "Would that it were as simple a matter as just killing him," he says. "If he were to be slain, in all likelihood the warband would raise up one of his close supporters, who would be equally as bad."

    "He must be discredited or dishonored first - his hold on the clan needs to be broken."

    The MERC licensee who contacted him is a young, handsome tiefling with dark skin, black hair, tail and horns. He's wearing a dark red padded jacket due to the colder weather and has a metal tube at his belt that Metalhead might recognize as an extendable telescopic staff.

    "Pleasure to meet you, sir. My name is Fayyaad ibn-Haashid al-Zafar, as my letter said. But just 'Fayyaad' is fine. It seems you have a job that might suit my skills."

    Metalhead looks less stressed then he did at MERC (though Fayyaad wouldn't know this) he's smoking one cigar at least, but hasn't realized its not lit.

    "Ok, Fayyaad, my name is Metalhead. I need you to travel to a place called Earth." He goes on to explain earth and the prohibition era. "One major player who never made it in the history books is named Scarson Fineblood, he's a vampire, a dangerous one. He's not harmed by sunlight, he's not harmed by holy symbols, but he stands out." He hands out a picture of Scarson. Scarson looks like Max Shreck's Nosferatu wearing a pinstriped suit and trench coat. "I want you to kill him and bring me his head. Its not going to be easy, but I'll pay you well. Still interested?"

    "Fire should work, provided its powerful enough and stays on him for a bit. If the fire's magical it will definitely work. Scarson himself actually isn't that bad, at least not compared to his second-in command, Frank Beehive."

    He hands Fayyaad a picture of him.
    "Beehive is a just that, a walking intelligent beehive, he's not completely aware of the full extent of his powers in the 1920s, so that should give you an edge, just burn most of his body and you should be fine, but be careful."

    "Numerous gangsters, some vampires, some not. He has some powerful friends too, but they shouldn't be a problem. Anyways, the plan is that the time machine will drop you off at Scarson's club, 'The Toxin House' From there, you can follow Scarson when he leaves to his mansion. That's where his coffin is.

    Another tiefling walks in. She stands a bit over six feet tall, with short black hair, dark red skin, and black horns that curl like those of a ram. She wears jeans, work boots, a thick belt, a simple dark shirt, and a canvas jacket. One of her eyes is gold in color. The other is covered by a black eyepatch. On the back of her belt is a metal rectangle.

    She looks around a bit, and upon spotting Fayyad, strolls over towards him.

    Hi, name's Ravanys. Just joined MERC. I was told to come over and help with this contract.

    Fayyaad looks deep in thought, before he spots another tiefling walk in. He looks up.

    "Perfect timing. I was about to tell our client that this job looks like something I'd need backup to handle. But between the two of us, our chances should look better. My name's Fayyaad, by the way."

    "Also, I said that Scarson won't be harmed by holy symbols and sunlight, but that doesn't apply to his vampire minions. Fire should work well against them. And as for his human minions, do you have experience guns?"

    Ravanys takes the seat, listening to the contract info.

    At Metalhead's question, Ravanys grins and reaches behind her back. There's a slight sound, and she brings the hand back up, holding a old revolver.

    I've had some experience with them, yes. Also have some skills with fire magic.

    The point from which they will leave the nexus will be a random field in Outside, this scene can be handwaved. If there aren't any more questions, the story will continue in the Serious Plots thread.

    Ravanys will stock up on half of the supplies that Metalhead gives. She wasn't sure if her teleporter would work in the dimension they were going to. Might as well have this stuff just in case.

    [How to date a Kraken]

    Why didn't people make watches in tentacle sizes? The urge to check her watch to see how long she'd been stuck here listening to this freaky fish guy talk about the ocean had become overbearing about-

    ...well she doesn't know how long ago because she doesn't have a watch to check! Curse these inferior incapable watchmakers who fail to cater to krakengirls!

    Suzie slips a tentacle round her glass and hides a sigh behind a sip of, uh, something. She hadn't really been paying attention to anything her date had been saying since the start. It was weird that he'd turned up shirtless, it was kind of disturbing that he brought a harpoon with him, but since they sat down, he'd done nothing but ramble on about "marine biology" and something about krakens and anatomies, whatever those were.

    "But my greatest joy in life will always be the ocean! Nothing compares to her beauty! Why, even now I find myself wishing we could sail on my vessel across her beautiful blue waters."

    Suzie blinks (with all six eyes) and lifts her head slightly from its perch on top of her tentacles. Was that the equivalent of asking her to go back to "his place" after this? A fork pokes lazily at her plate of food, the motivation to eat long since sapped away by this freaky fish guy. One eye casually sweeps around Bloodsong's, hoping to catch sight of Marina. Hopefully her choice for her loyal fishmaiden hadn't turned out quite as disastrously. She should be angry with Marina for getting this so wrong. How dare her loyal minion set her up with such a loser! But for once, she just can't find it in her. Marina had really tried with this one, and she could see why - he did have a real passion for the ocean and krakens. Unfortunately it just turns out that, in person, he's a total creep who keeps asking weirdly invasive questions.

    "So tell me Suzie, do you still secrete the same types of mucous in your new form? Why, second only to the majesty of the ocean, kraken mucous produces the most wonderful aroma that-"

    MUCOUS?! Did he seriously just ask her that? "OH MY LEVIATHANS! Are you serious? Who asks that? You are such a freaky fish guy!"

    "What did you call me?"

    "You heard me. Ya freaky fish guy."

    "I AM NOT A FREAKY FISH GUY!"

    "...totally are."

    "ARGH! You're just like the rest of them! Nobody understands me! I figured at least you, a fellow creature of the sea, would share my passion for its waters."

    "You realise you're a human, right? You're not a creature of the sea, you 're just a water-obsessed weirdo. What kinda name is Tiger Typhoon anyway?"

    "WHY YOU-! I, TIGER TYPHOON, will not stand for this! I bet you're not even a real kraken, are you? You're just some dumb inkling in a dress pretending to be one!"

    "INKLING?! HOW DARE YOU! Why, if I had my full powers at my disposal- Ooh, you're such a freaky fish guy!"

    "My love for the ocean is pure and true!"

    "If you love the ocean so much, why don't you marry it?"

    "Oh yeah? Maybe I will!"

    Suzie is left speechless for a moment at that. Then she stands, grabs her staff, and casually spits a glob of ink over her date. "Yeah, that's just strange. I'm outta here. Good luck marrying the ocean, you freaky fish guy." And off she goes, cackling quietly as she leaves the freaky fish guy to splutter and flail blindly, shouting angrily that "YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LAST OF TIGER TYPHOON!"

    The krakengirl skips away, glad to be free of her companion for the evening (and even better, she left him to foot the bill!). Now she just has to find Marina and see how her date is going. Hopefully just as badly much better.

    Elsewhere, Marina is feeling very much under-dressed for a place like this. When she was told this place was a speakeasy, she hadn't realized the meaning entailed a level of ritz and class! It didn't sound much like the aesthetic for a stereotypical den of morally-questionable individuals, after all; most villains looked suitably spiky and menacing, decrepit and ugly, or simply gross, it was simply the way of things... not that her lady was gross or ugly, of course. The woman she served was fashionable and stylish, yet still clearly threatening, all decked out in blacks and reds - a far cry from the spiffy tuxedos the waiters were wearing, or the elegant sequin gown her blind date was dressed up in. It was all glimmering and sparkly red, almost mesmerizing! How could her simple maid's uniform compete with that?

    "- So I tell him that there's no way I'm going to try and hold Rio Nevado for ransom with just a small PMC and high-velocity gatling guns, there's no way we've got enough firepower to hold off any wannabe desperados or Clint Eastwoods. It's just logistically unsound!"
    "oh?" Marina idly stirs the straw in her drink, trying to feign a lack of disinterest.
    "Well I mean, you ever seen any Westerns before? Those guys are insane, you can't take any chances."
    "No, not really, I'm afraid..."

    [I have an inkling something fishy's going on!]

    Suzie adjusts her outfit and gets to work on tracking down Marina, striding purposefully round the restaurant. What a waste to end things so early! She'd put on her best villain's outfit (her only outfit, but she'd got Marina to clean it up real good!), polished her coral staff, put on that one pair of rip-proof stockings she got on Minion A's advice, and now she's just wandering around this place, looking for-

    WONG!

    Suzie's eyes widen in disbelief as she gets a giant silver dining dish to the back of the head.

    "Haha! I warned you that you hadn't seen the last of TIGER TYPHOON!"

    "Wha-? Ooooh, why yoooou little-!" Suzie growls, despite Tiger Typhoon being considerably larger than her.

    Perhaps sensing that was not the wisest thing to do, Tiger Typhoon turns with a smug grin, and starts running.

    "I WILL BURY YOU IN THE DEPTHS OF THE ABYSS! MY SHARKS SHALL FEED UPON YOUR ENTRAILS! THE OCEAN SHALL BE YOUR COLD, BLUE PRISON, YOU-!" Suzie continues rattling off the threats as she takes off in pursuit, her coral staff glowing ominously.

    The course of their chase takes them close to Marina's table (and probably within earshot a good ten seconds before and about as long after), but not much longer after that.

    "YOUR DOOM SHALL BE SWIFT AND WET! I WILL LIGHTNING YOU SO HARD, YOUR CHEST HAIRS WILL STAND ON END! I WILL- I will- uh." The chase (which maybe lasted a minute or two at most) is swiftly brought to an end as an orc casually intercepts Tiger Typhoon, and Suzie lets out an audible gulp as she stares aaaall the way up at a rather large, intimidating minotaur. He folds his arms and stares back with a snort. "I will, um, not disturb the other patrons, I will not lightning anyone and I will trust the staff of this lovely establishment to deal with him for attacking a lady with a dinner plate. Sorry?"

    The minotaur nods, with a withering glare that makes it clear Suzie's still on very thin ice.

    "Ugh. Real professional, Suzie. I hope Marina didn't see any of that."
