Our heroes found themselves enjoying their new office space in what used to be the supply closet of the Dirty Monkey Tavern. In need of work, the CEO Gilgamesh Macchaivelli and his manservant Black Hayate went to the streets in search of work. There they encountered a rogue on the run from The City Guard. After a brief encounter with the guard, they went to the nearby bounty office to search for any bounties that looked like good work.
Meanwhile, Marie and Marius Dagfin remained in the office, with Marie eying Marius with displeasure. A quick knock on the door broke the reverie; the source was the rogue that Gilgamesh and Hayate had seen earlier. He sought refuge from his pursuers in the office of the Cyrillus Group. Offering to introduce Marie to some shady people, he pleaded for asylum. Marie was not interested however, and cruelly slammed the door in his face. Shortly thereafter, a scuffle could be heard from the other side of the door, followed by the sound of someone being dragged out of the Tavern.
At the bounty office, Gilgamesh and Hayate managed to locate a promising bounty, a local gang leader known as “Three-finger Jack”. His bounty had just been raised after his brutal murder of the last group of bounty hunters who went searching for him. Of course, this fact only served to further intrigue Gilgamesh. After questioning one of the secretaries, they learned that Jack rotated between various hideouts spread throughout the slums. With a new job decided upon, they headed back for the office and filled Marie and Marius in on the details.
The group decided to try and join Jack’s crew to infiltrate the group hoping that might lead them to Jack. Marie recommended they pay a visit to one Griffin the gnome, her old mentor and casual sex partner thinking he might know where they could find some of Jack’s posse. After some flirting between Griffin and Marie, it was determined that the most likely place to find some members of Jack’s crew was in the Black Unicorn Tavern nearby. With that information, they decided to pay a visit to the Black Unicorn, though not before Marius could flirt with Griffin’s old landlady, causing her to faint with shock, after which he proceeded to leap out Griffin’s window which had been shattered earlier by Gilgamesh and Hayate when they made their exit.
At the Black Unicorn, the group inquired about Three-finger Jack in an incredibly non-subtle manner, attracting the attention of some of Jack’s thugs who happened to be in attendance. After some discussion and deception, they convinced the thugs to follow them back to their office, where the thugs were entrusted to relay a message to Jack. The group then proceeded to follow the thugs to a nondescript building, which they staked out for the rest of the day. However, their efforts yielded no useful info. The next morning, they made the decision to storm the building, but unfortunately they only found one thug in attendance, and indications that Jack had packed up and moved. In order to track down Jack, the party questioned a halfling who resided in the building and who was not pleased with the group, as Marius had made his entrance into the building by breaking through his roof. However some fast talking by Gilgamesh, as well as some intimidating glances from Hayate yielded the info they sought.
The group then decided to simply forgo elaborate plans and break down the door of what they believed to be Jack’s current hideout. They found 8 henchmen in attendance, but after disposing of them, they saw no sign of Jack. A search of the floor revealed a secret passage behind a bookshelf, however the bookshelf wouldn’t budge. After some quick puzzle solving by Gilgamesh and Marie, the group was finally able to corner Jack, and rapidly finish him off. They claimed the bounty on Jack, as well as several of his henchmen, and settled back in to their new office, comfortable in the knowledge that they’d gained a little more renown for their small company.
