I find it boring and a waste of time. So I have taken control of Zaphiel." Still not stopping for even a second, he stiffly holds out his hand and says, "I am Nox."

    Nox nods and says, "Your presumption is correct. Not only are you capable of detecting magic, but you are also able to put pieces together quickly. Those are good skills to have." Nox actually waits for a response.

But when I picked the cane up, it immediately started telling me, but only by speaking into my brain, I would have power and be a savior if I were to use it and carry it with me everywhere. I was like 'okay, but not in the shower or bathroom' and the cane said that we could connect our minds and speak to each other telepathically if we did a ritual. So we did the ritual and he used magic to get me back home. And that's how I got him."

    "Oh, I see." There's just the slightest tinge of doubt to Gudrun's voice. Only one god allowed? That sounds a little stifling. But if she's benevolent, that's probably alright, isn't it? "Must be a bit strange being here then, with gods being much more, ah, present here?"

    "So anyway, from here, VIGIL is just down that road until you get out of the city, and then [directions to VIGIL that might or might not work because Nexus geography is dangerously inconsistent]," she explains, hoping her directions aren't too difficult to follow. You know how bad this place can get sometimes.

    Saint Lazarus takes a deep breath, considers everything Calm Reed has said, and then glances down into her drink. Well, she's in Trog's now, isn't she? Worst case scenario, she can just call out for help again, keep her helmet on, and play damsel in distress when some big, bold hero runs in to save the day, right? She's been a friendly enough, cooperative person so far, and Calm Reed seems fairly sensible and not the sort to get tied up in dogma and scripture when it deviates from how things are run in the Nexus. Maybe Lazarus can take a chance here.

    "Calm Reed, hypothetical question. If I was some kind of flesh-eating monster, not by choice, just because of an awful magical condition imposing some really nasty dietary restrictions, would you be obligated to kill me?" Saint Lazarus asks, a hand reflexively wandering down under the table to the sword at her hip, in spite of her best efforts to keep this civil and peaceful and friendly.

    Calm Reed puts down her teacup with great care and turns to look at St. Lazarus with an impassive expression.

    "In such a hypothetical situation," she says, knowing there's nothing hypothetical about it, "I would first prefer to find out more about the specifics of your situation and determine if you're a danger to those around you."

    "I don't think I'd want to meet any gods directly. It seems like it'd be a very distressing experience. How do you address a deity that you don't, um, worship?" It feels like it'd all be very, very awkward.

    "The specifics are the flesh has to be relatively fresh and relatively human. Elf and orc is fine. Lizardfolk isn't. Werewolf gives me indigestion. This weird brain drink is fine. Some graves are fine, depending on the embalming methods used and how recently the body was put in a coffin. It can't be cooked or frozen, but I can save leftovers in a fridge if I'm careful." Saint Lazarus frowns, realizing that Calm Reed probably has no idea what a refrigerator is.

    "Sorry, an ice box, if you had those back home. Anyway, I'm not going to just jump someone and bite their throat out. I mean, I could, I've got the teeth for it, but unless I was starving to death and had exhausted every single other alternative, I wouldn't. I'm not a violent psychopath, and I'm in no hurry to be burned at the stake by a mob of angry villagers for crimes against humanity. That's also why the armor stays on, always, even now," Saint Lazarus explains, fiddling with her straw, trying to fit it through a narrow breathing slit in her helmet, without flattening the straw to the point that it'd be completely useless.

    "All of this still being hypothetical, of course," she adds, a weak lie that she knows isn't fooling either of them.

    It sounds like St. Lazarus is talking about a winterbreath jar, but mentioning it so casually... is this land so filled with wonders that an artifact comes up in passing conversation?

    Saint Lazarus shrugs. "Wherever she can. We met just outside a cemetery. They had a funeral there yesterday, and I figured it was safe enough to just dig up the coffin and then bury the bones after, but then bodies started rising from their graves on their own. It felt more than a little ironic, as you can imagine. A cannibal being hunted by the dead. I'm hypothetically sorry if that inconvenienced you, by the way."

    "Also, I don't like being like this, just so we're clear," Saint Lazarus insists, slowly rising from her seat and pushing her chair back in. She thinks she's doing okay so far, but things are getting heated, and she might need to run away at any moment. "I didn't want to be doing this sort of thing with my free time. Direct sunlight is excruciating without my armor on, and I used to be so much prettier before I got bit."

    Calm Reed is silent for a few moments. She manages to look past her instinctual revulsion to something as vile as digging up fresh corpses. It seems the people here do not have the good sense to cremate their dead, which is also why they suffer from plagues of undead. The... person... in front of her is a monster, but not through a choice of her own, it seems. So what is she expected to do about it?

    "Burying your dead and leaving them to tender mercies of flesh-eaters seems unwise," she observes in a conversational tone. "Where I come from, we cremate them. Which helps avoid problems such as a plague of zombies... or a hypothetical person who digs them up to eat them. But if such a vile predilection was forced on them against their will, it's hard to say what a monk should do about it."

    Freeing the soul from its diseased body and sending it back to the cycle of reincarnation might be the wisest course. Let the Dragons decide where it'll end up next.

    Saint Lazarus quietly stands there for a moment, her arms still holding onto the chair she was sitting in moments before. She calmly take a step back, reaches for her moneybag, and produces a handful of shiny coins, to cover both their drinks and Calm Reed's first night at Trog's.

    "Well if I could make a hypothetical suggestion or two? Next time you punch someone to death, let me know about it. Or just let me keep being me. I'm not in a hurry to die, I'm an okay person, and the hunger hasn't made me kill any innocent people yet, so I'm overall more good for the Nexus than bad." Just don't ask her about any muggers in dark alleyways the hunger may have encouraged her to feast on. It's okay, though. They had it coming, mostly.

    "I can keep this going, if I play my cards right, and the only ones who'll ever get bit will already be dead, so nobody gets hurt. Plus, if we get into a fight and I bite you before I die, and your monk powers don't make you magically immune, then the whole world will have even bigger problems, because then there's a monk with amazing superpowers with a ravenous people-eating hunger who has to decide whether to kill herself and save anyone else from suffering, or try to live with the contagion as a total backstabbing hypocrite." A ghoul exalted would be pretty inconvenient for everyone else, wouldn't it? I doubt it's even remotely possible, though.

    Still riding off the high of a successful mission, Arbrim, who'd been celebrating with a group of rough-looking individuals, orders yet another round of drinks. As the others within his little entourage continue to socialize with one another, the undead bounty-hunter overherars the conversation taking place nearby, one which seemingly references the eating of flesh, contagious bites, and other such ailments frequently associated with those of his condition. Arbrim himself, over eight-feet tall and quite wide, stares over towards Saint Lazarus, blazing eyes flashing from beneath a tall, wide-brimmed leather hat, his sunken eyes of burning coals shielded by a pair of black shades. The barest hint of his clearly undead face can be seen from certain angles, despite the fact that a majority of the alien bounty-hunter's maimed and half-melted face remains hidden behind a dusty, black bandanna and a tall, blood-spattered leather collar.

    The grime-splattered bounty-hunter can be seen clad in a long, tattered leather greatcoat worn over a thick, futuristic-looking breastplate inscribed with glowing protective runes. A dented, well-worn spiked gauntlet crafted of some unusual material and decorated with bones and runes similar to his armor can be seen worn over his left hand, while the other appears to be a particularly bulky cybernetic limb, each industrial-sized metal finger as thick as a lesser being’s wrist, pipes and pistons visible beneath heavy, spiked plating meant to crush, and grind, and utterly pulverize with brutal efficiency. Dozens of blood-stained bandages cover the prosthesis, and bones taken as trophies from successful ventures now decorate the arm, giving it a frightening, claw-like look. A cracked metal lantern decorated with flecks of gold and silver hangs from his belt alongside a trio of sentient severed heads attached to blackened chains, while a sharp, angular collar rests upon the man's broad shoulders, wrapping about his neck, where it attaches to an enormous black cloak.

    Slowly, he shifts his weight upon a particularly unfortunate looking bar stool, one which creaks and groans in response.

    Calm Reed, a tall woman in a buff coat, with blue eyes and an oddly bluish tint to her skin around her eyes and mouth, frowns.

    "I am willing to postpone the idea to simply free your soul from its diseased body and send it to reincarnate, but I won't aid and abet-" Then she is interrupted by the arrival of a thoroughly uncouth-looking individual. He seems to be addressing St. Lazarus, so the monk remains silent for a moment.

    "Uhh...maybe six, seven months?" she blinks, not that anyone can see it, since the face-concealing knightly helm is doing its job so well. Saint Lazarus's danger senses are doing more than just tingling. They are screaming, hollering, begging her to cut and run right now. This tall, spooky stranger is bad news personified, and certainly doesn't look like he's been half as choosy about his prey, if the creepy, menacing aesthetic is meant to convey that he has a condition like Saint Lazarus's own. For god's sake, he has actual heads dangling from his belt what the hell is that. Saint Lazarus shoots a glance towards Calm Reed, hoping she has some way of putting an end to this discussion that will allow her to run the hell away and get on with her life before the spoopy murder man can get any chummier.

    Lynx's brow furrows and he tilts his head to the side a little, mouth slightly open. "He did? Weird. I could've sworn I told him my name." He grins a little as he moves his head back to normal and un-knits his eyebrows. "When I found him, I asked what his name was. He replied that it didn't matter, so I just started calling him Bob. He never seemed to mind."

Well, I guess I mean to say I have a little basic demolitions training. Bombs and grenades and things. Might be useful for pyrotechnics."
