Argent got hisself kidnapped for two weeks, fed enough drugs to alter the mind of a particularly strong-willed horse, and dropped back at the capital in time for a festival. After psychically enslaving the entire city when the darker side of his powers got forced out via his heavy dosage, he got bonked on the head by Yasmin and treated for a day or so. When he got out, he sort of sent a psychic message into the minds of everyone there, utilizing the power of his home base, telling everyone that he would find his enemies and do some terrible things.
Everybody’s taking it pretty hard right now.
On the bright side, the orc encampment he got set out to scout for magic weapons came up with something, so shortly before he left Lydia ended up getting her journeyman status, as per the usual test. Claudette moved in successfully, with enough space to look after her platoon of orphans. He also got some more money from the mapmaker Timaeus, as well as another map.
This means he’s off on a road trip across several new areas, so it will be less capital news and more dungeon news next time I update this thing. That will probably make it interesting.
