    Dougal awakens, retrieves some paper and a pen from a store room, and writes a notice, which he nails the the door of the guild. The note reads as follows:

    Attention:

    The Guildmaster has been unable to post for several days, and I am unsure as to when he will return. With Aesa suspended, this leaves me as the ranking Guild member. As such, I will be handling Guild business until such time as Gemini returns. Unlike Gemini, I can't be everywhere at once, but I will do my best to be available. Thank you.

    ~Dougal

    Satisfied, he sits down in a pew.

    Gemini walks in, with a wise look on his face. "Greetings, Dougal. I have something very important to tell you.....I am going to leave, I might not be back.....I might....but I will tell you this....you are in charge of the guild for now.....do not come and search for me.....good day." Gemini walks out.

    Randall bursts into the building storming his way across the room to a chair. "Do you know how long I stood there? At least a week! A WEEK! GAH! I could care less about that guy and his crazy brother, I am not spending another moment with that man." He sits and folds his arms, grumbling.

    Dougal walks into the guild. He sits himself down at the desk in the main office. This is weird. With Gemini gone, though... Someone has to man the fort.

    A frazzled looking man in clerical robes runs up towards Heaven's Exiles, craddling a package under his cloak. He is wearing a silver necklace with a triskadecacle pendant dangling with his strides.

    Upon entering the building, he steps up towards the main office, closes the door and addresses Dougal. "Hello, Sir Gemini, my name is Evan, I am the high priest at the Temple of Jonnadiah. I have a note for you from the Lord himself. Since you are the guild master here (and if you are not, then you are recieving this note anyway, as his lordship has given me many other tasks to complete and I would like to finish those before sundown if at all possible.)"

    Evan removes from his robes a stack of a dozen or so scrolls, sifts through them, pulls out the largest in the stack and hands it to Dougal.

    "I bid you a fare evening." He says with a little bow as we walks out of the guild.

    Spoiler
    Show

    As you open the scroll, you note it is embraizoned with a seal resembling Jonnadiah's Triskadecacle, although it is 16 pointed and each end meets a different alchemical symbol. Encircling the graphic are weird symbols from an ancient language that you can't make heads or tails of (unless you have ranks in Desypher Script in which case PM that to me)

    The letter reads, in very curt, small print:

    "Greetings Gemini and ALL of the Heaven's Exciles Guild!

    It has come to my attention that you have been hired by a one Lord Iames to come hunt me and my associate Aloysius. I have sent a few mooks of mine to spy on your guild (my humblest apologies for this) and it has come to my attention that you are all a guild of athiests and/or those who have been excommunicated from their churches.

    Now, that's all well and dandy, I for one hate organized religion with a passion. Yes, yes I know, I'm a GOD with a drove of loyal supporters, how could a self centered schmuck possibly not love that? Well, that's not for you to know, tough cookies.

    Alas, I digress, the reason I'm writing you is to propose you this. You have been hired by Lord Iames, a GOD with FOLLOWERS. You have fallen victim of the very situation you tried to escape by banding together in the first place. Now, I know you are saying "No! I was hired by the police!" well, no, that's simply an elaborate lie established by Iames to get you to serve his needs before he tosses you aside like a rag.

    Like you were tossed aside by your former gods.

    Besides, even if Iames has left the force, he has merely given his whore Verdandi the power. Anyone who is sleeping with a God is worse than a God himself. You were right to get rid of Verdandi's depressed bitch of a sister as well, she merely served Iames as a peg to keep you in line. What kind of relationship is THAT if you can't be trusted without one of your high ranking officers being in bed with your client?

    My proposal is simple. Near 4 millinia ago, my home town was destroyed by a large following of some ass Nature God. It has become my life's work to overthrow all deities and their followers in payment for this. Imagine a Town without over zealous clerics, paladins and meddling Gods like Iames or Kyrian. A Town where logic and technology reign supreme over magic and blind faith. A Town where you'd no longer be exiles, but heros. This has been my goal, my reason for attacking, my reason for being.

    What's in it for you? Well, after I take over this hellhole I'd imagine that I can pull a few strings and maybe, just maybe, establish Heaven's Exiles as the primary law enforcement body in Town. You'd have power, fame, respect, oh and money, lots and lots of money.

    Please, all I ask is that you consider my proposal, I can be found in my temple. Adieu

    ~Jonnadiah.

    P.S. Everyone of my mook followers will be murdered at the end of this campaign. I may an evil god, but I'm far from a hypocrite."
