The party starts to head off towards the PleasureDome, with the intent of meeting Arlen Rode later only to be acosted by a flesh jacker that parades as a skull, along with his energy sucking millipedes. He seemed to be asking about Jerry Daniels and left sort of dis-satisfied to leave the Crew to their fate.
The crew survived the onslaught, and headed into the PleasureDome, intending to see what they would find out both from the chat room and from scouting around. Quick thinking from the crew got two of them into the system to Trekker’s chatroom, and Basque upstairs with the owner of the PleasureDome – Arlen Rode.
Inside Trekker’s chatroom waited a typical 1930s blues scene – bar, singer, and seductively dressed Violet, who told them that she was an her own secret mission – to find a killer called Harbinger. It was at this point that the image of Wauri Trekker appeared on the stage, and began to sing.
Meanwhile, outside and in Arlen Rode’s private room, Basque somehow got him to talk – Arlen Rode was scared of something coming after him. Something that wanted an item that both Pathfinder & the Proprietor had wanted. On his way to show him, however, a sniper shot barely missed his head, and the two golem guards that stood by the door came and crushed his throat.
The PleasureDome was attacked by the flesh-jacking millipedes at this time, bringing everyone back from the Mesh. The crew quickly stole the logs of the last few people that logged into that room, and scramed.
