Breaking into a mining complex guarded by what amounts to a private army? With the daughter of the devil? Now this is unexpected. I like unexpected. The devil’s daughter, who says her name is Sara, formulated a plan to get us into the complex, involving some hiking gear and a story about how we are recently married. I like this one, she’s clever. We walk right up to the gate, donning the grin that we wear so well, and do a decent job of acting the part. Sara, however, is brilliant. It’s difficult to believe she is even the same person. I wonder if she would give lessons.
A few carefully chosen words and some well placed ass slaps later, and we find ourselves in an adequately hospitable room waiting to speak to someone in charge about an investment. For the moment though, a shower and some further scheming. Sara goes to work on the destruction of this place from the inside, beginning with the summoning of..something? An oni? Well, whatever it is it’s not pretty to look at and has a voracious appetite. The two of them set out.
Sara has been gone now for several minutes and we are growing restless. I slip into my fox form and climb out the window to see what I can see – then I remember the miners. Our mission was to free the miners while the boys dealt with the “licks”. I head for the barracks. Inside I find Sara surrounded by several people who can only be the enslaved workers. I reveal myself and we continue to plot. Now the fun begins. The miners, led by Sara, assault the army that has been imprisoning them. The air is thick with chaos and I drink it in as I feed the flames with my illusions. There is death on both sides. When the smoke clears, we are victorious.
Soon after, the boys emerge from the mine with reports of dead vampires and a little girl in tow. Turns out she’s the daughter of a woman named Bea. She speaks to the pack and tells them the miners are willing to stay, but they no longer want to be slaves. The mine should become communal. We recall Senator Delgado, a part owner in this mine. There is more work to be done.
