The bar was known as Oogies Paradise, and had been converted from a barn. It was obvious from the stalls turned into booths, and the faint odor of Mal’ie that clung to the rafters. The bartender was a Cloud Slaver, and the alien wore an artificed collar allowing it to understand its patrons.
There was a dual flash of light, and as the blue flash faded, Maverick Multimancer found himself surrounded by Death and what looked like a gnarly bunch of dangerous goons.
Maverick turned back to Mawen Rapider and Lurtor and S.I.L.A.S. and the rest of his erstwhile team and said, “Hasta La Vista Baby. Have fun telling these stories to your kids.”
The Red hat fluttered as Maverick ran between a burly pair of Olgogs and slipped out the door.
Meanwhile Death motioned for Daron and Scribe to hold those who arrived with Maverick.
Death was almost out the door before he turned to Scribe, “You rule these lands yes? Make sure to question these folks fully. If they pose no threat release them. If they are a threat… then you can do as your nation’s rules allow.
Thank you Scribe. You have fully upheld the treaty of 2220 made between the EEF Colonies and the Iron Republic. Your lands may thrive as they will without our interference.”
Death was gone, his machete aloft as he charged after Maverick.
With their factional leaders gone, both sides eyed each other warily.
The bar tender climbed across the ceiling, holding a tray of drinks in each hand.
“How abouts you guys talks this out? Drinks are on me if I can serve the great and mighty Scribe who leads these lands with a light touch and freedom for all,” the bartender Cloud Slaver said as he began offering drinks to all.
[Currently in this thread are Lurtor, Scribe, Daron, S.I.L.A.S., Mawen Rapider, and all others removed from the timeline by the Resistance AND the Iron Republic’s Four Horsemen. but it is open to anyone passing through these lands]
