Having Dispatched with the Silver Horns, we return to Colm. It is fairly quiet back at base and we now plan our next goal: taking down the Covenant of the Coming Storm.
We figure our best way to take them down is from the inside out. Sparrow – being the most likely to blend in – has suggested that she go to a Covenant tavern and try to join their ranks, whilst we make bad examples of ourselves and cultures. It’s a little dishonorable to my ancestors, but why should I not be proud of my heritage. There is no shame in embracing it a little, I suppose.
Sure enough we have made prime examples of ourselves why humans should remain “pure” according to these backward people. Sparrow was happily brought into their fold.
Speaking of people being brought into the fold: it seems our notoriety has caught up with us in a good way for once! We have a follower now. His name is Conrad and he seems to be a great fit. This got me thinking that I should try and find someone to help me with the lab. I’m rarely home and many of my concoctions take some time to prepare.
I set out looking for someone to hire, and it wasn’t long until I found Kilik. He really is quite adept with the lab, and not only can he interpret my recipes, it seems he has a few ideas of his own that really are quite novel.
All in all, it seems that we really are carving a niche out here in Colm for ourselves. Perhaps one day we can retire in style. For now though, we have much work to do.
