    Jebediah's Inferno: Or That Time We Killed Murdock ...Again
    WarderDragon

    Last night, Britannians charged into the depths beneath Castle Blackthorne, not to check his wife's plumbing, but to confront an old foe: Murdock. A man we seem to just keep killing. Again. And again. And again.

    But let's rewind a moment. This all began when Grindylow, the neon-haired she-tart of Britain, summoned us to confront a “noble from the land of Moonglow.” Apparently, she deduced, the people of Moonglow must be planning to kill us all, because we all know the first thing you do when invading a rival city-state is to go there – alone – and announce your threat to them. But, humoring her, we decided to get to the bottom of this. Because we have hearts, and we care.

    Sure enough, an invasion was planned. Arriving on Eiffel Isle before the others, I and my trusty sidekick Sholto withered, slapped and dropkicked our way into the center of the island, clearing the way for the rest ...because we're just that awesome. Clue's in the encampment suggested we seek out a Jebediah in Buccaneer's Den.

    The Pirate's Isle, as it turns out, is Hell-adjacent, or at the very least home to a nasty dimensional rift. There, Jebediah, wreathed in flame and radiating all sort's of bad guy spookiness, lamented his task and revealed his wish to retire from a life of jaywalking and mass-murder. Right, let's help that. To do that, he would need our cooperation, but not before sending us through a three-dungeon obstacle course, because clearly Satan's third cousin thought it amusing.

    Seriously, I was playing Eye of the Tiger through the whole thing.

    Having proved ourselves, Lucif...I mean Jebediah announced he would lead us on a quest to kill those who threaten Britain, because clearly we should be trusting the dude who almost just invaded us. He opened the gate, showing us all his mad skills, before leading us to a very familiar looking supervillain's lair, where a quartet of very menacing looking faces announced we would be facing “our old nemesis.”

    “You don't mean Murdock, because that would be just-”

    “...douchy.” The scenery around me changed, whisking me to the bowels beneath Britain, and to the center of Murdock's encampment of evil. C'mon, what kind've supervillain uses his own name as the password!? Oh look, Controllers!

    Some three-hundred flamestrikes later, Murdock lay dead. Again. Victory was ours. Jebediah got his wish, Britain would rise to see a new day, and all the usual suspects got their shinies. Awesome. But at the end of the day, I can't help but be left with this one nagging question. We just helped a mass-murderer, and would-be invader, kill a Priest of the Light, in the name of good.

    Why do I get the sense we killed the wrong guy?

    Oh well. Now for a little Def Leppard...

    It warms the cockles of my heart that amiable little Moonglow has apparently taken Umbra's place as the looming empire of black magic bent on conquest and the corruption of all that is good and true.

    You were a resident there ...what? Two months ago?

    But I'm sure House Seiren had nothing to do with this.

    I am also sure of that, given that I was an animate, non-sentient bag of bones living in a tree at the time. I suppose that you could blame Alouenikah for starting this if you wanted. He is noted for his political cunning and vicious, barbaric nature.

    Also, as you may have noticed, my family is uniquely bad at starting wars, fighting wars, concluding wars, or really, any sort of non-maritime activity. It's a source of pride for us.

    Let's see. He ate Ifan's face off during an acid trip. Strangled Shiloh and stuffed his dismembered corpse in a crate to feed his addiction. He's been Frankensteined. Addicted to Vampires Blood. And now he's writing smut for furries.

    He's a bubbling cauldron of evil (and adipose tissue) just waiting to snap.

    Don't forget the Foxclaws!

    Shiloh's death was the result of a stolen identity that bit back; Alouei had nothing to do with it, and why he chose to take responsibility for it, I will never know. Ifan could have tried a little harder not to look like a potato if he didn't want people trying to eat him. And as for the vampire blood addiction and the Frankensteining, I think that we both know who is truly to blame for that.

    Your constant efforts to defame my husband are frankly disheartening, Tarrant. Are you jealous of his good looks and ridiculous sex life?

    Alouei, what did I tell you about confessing for other people's violent crimes?

    I, uh, that isn't really-... well, yes, I suppose I did say that at some point. Good job, Alouei.
