After presenting Oscar with the uniform of an Apprentice, an act that formally made her ward bound in service to her AND to the Church of Bellac, and then securing a Gate Pass from Percival Pardy, obtaining a gut shot in the process, Jeanne and Oscar left Bellac for parts unknown.
However, their trip was cut short when they stumbled across a Ghoul raiding party that had just made short work of a couple dozen members of the Bellac Defense League. The two were spotted and a group of Ghouls gave pursuit. Oscar noticed that instead of retreating back to Bellac, that they were instead going AWAY from their home, but his inquiry to the matter was quickly shot down when Jeanne decided to stop and confront their pursuers. She’s really not big on talk.
It was at this time that Jeanne became aware of the fact that many of the Ghouls had ingested the Allus – the same substance that gives the Disciples their powers, complicating matters further, the Ghouls have suggested that Jeanne was the one who gave it to them! Wowzers! Confronted by Oscar about her involvement, Jeanne has opted to instead disperse their pursuers. Unfortunately, her wound chose this particular moment to begin acting up and causing her a fit of extreme pain, rendering her completely vulnerable! Oh no!
Meanwhile, back in Bellac, most of the city continues to celebrate their beloved Founder’s Day, blissfully unaware of the massacre of the Defense League – or that of their would-be-rescuers, the BDL reinforcements led by Northern Gate Captain Belmont, who according to Disciples Angelique, have also been defeated! Yikes!
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH
Sorry guys, it’s been a rough week and the comic’s suffered for it. I’ll try to turn it around for next week.
Also, I think I’m going change the recap to appearing only at the beginning of a new scene as it’s just really redundant. The link to the start of the current scene (and thus, the recap) as well as the character refresher links will stay as is. Sound like a plan?
Next week this scene finally concludes and the week after that we’ll start pulling in some of the more obscure story threads – I’m looking forward to both! lol
See you next Monday,
