I awoke to the sound of rodents scurrying through the woodwork . Not exactly the wake up call I’d like, but it’s better than being out on the streets or being dead, a smear on the ground . . . which reminds me, I now have to work with this barbarian for our mysterious “employer”. The barbarian apparently decides to go wandering around with our map leaving me without a way to know my way around. Seeing as my only way to be guided around the city was walking out the door, I quickly follow after him and out into the city. He tried reading the map himself but apparently didn’t understand it at all. He hands it to me and I quickly try to discern the map’s contents. Not much luck, considering that even though it was fairly accurate, parts of the city in the lower areas are in massive disrepair. It was about this time when we met HIM.
