Forrester was suprised Yvonne was sticking around. She was so nice and friendly that Forrester could not believe his luck, for once in his life an attractive woman under her own free will slept with him and he didn’t have to force her or pay her a cent, life was good when you weren’t running with gangs. Forrester told Yvonne that he aspired to be a pit fighter but didn’t know where to start. Suprisingly Yvonne’s brother was a well known bronze league fighter and Yvonne offered to introduce him to her brothers old manager, a halfling by the name of Harry Hairfoot who ran a homebrew fight club twice a week out of his tavrrn in the Reikerbahn district. Yvonne introduced Forrester and Harry garuneteed him entry, if he won the comp Harry would sponsor Forrester in the bronze league, the lowest tier for proffesional pit fighter in Altdorf.
Arman ran more errands for the Cult of Ranald and Kathrin introduced him to Casper Frenderich, a master priest of Ranald whom was coordinating the Ranald’s defence against the Black Boys. Casper told Arman there was a traitor in their midst and that is why the cult members were being elimated with relative ease, Casper wasn’t impressed with Arman but Kathrin assured Arman’s loyalty was absolute. Kathrin said that he would be running errands for both Casper and her and that his faith in Ranald was paramount to the cult’s success.
Levi spent most of his time working and spending time with his fiance. Ulrike stated that there was urgent Shallayan business which needed to be attended to in Kemperbad and that she needed to leave for a week, although disapointed Levi let her go as now he could concentrate more on smuggling goods out of his new workplace and not have to deal with lying to his fiance about his whereabouts at night. Several days passed, Forrester prepared for his fight and worked at the inn, Arman ran errands and Levi worked. Arman delibered a series of letters on behalf of Kathrin and the cult succesfully gained the support of Niko Belic, mob boss of the Kislevite smuggler and protection gang Hotel Kislev. Unfortunately for Arman, his girlfriend Breda broke up with him citing that it was to dangerous for the pair of them to remain together, much to Arman’s sorrow Breda said she was to hide out with family members in the city of Kemperbad as it was their she believed she was out of bumbtwe’s reach.
Forrester fought two successful fights and envisioned a future where he could leave the past behind, fight in the leagues and live life with his new lady with a kid or two on the way. The next night however Forrester found out that things don’t always work out so well. Curley along with six thugs confronted Forrester and Yvonne and took them to see Bumbtwe Gudaffe (Forresster’s boss) in the Dreckslack Slums. Bumbwe asked why Forester had not captured the treasurer in the time and why he alone had survived the failed mission. Forrester believed the Treasurer to be dead as no one could escape him, Bumbtwe did not believe him. Bumbtwe said he would not turn Forrester in to Black Daddy for failing his mission (as black daddy would kill him for it) but in return Bumbtwe would require work out of Forrester. Forrester refused and Bumbtwe threatened to “fuck your slut and cut off her tits” in which Forrester in a rare act of compassion agreed, not wishing any harm on his new love whom was being held downstairs against her will by several gang members.
Bumbtwe told Forrester that he was to kill a female Ranald informant meeting with one of his contacts. The informant is under the impression that she was meeting with a snitch and in bumbtwe’s own words “To intercept the woman kill her savagely, strip her naked, disfigure her body and nail her corpse to the statue of Sigmar in the Sindelfingen district”. Forrester along with several men proceeded with he job, the woman attempted to escape but Forrester took her leg out with a viscous strike from his Halberd. The other goons descended on the dying woman, who was really more of a young girl with blond hair and blue eyes stripping her and mutilating her body, killing her in the process. Forrester searched her clothes and found Ranald talisman and a very expensive ring, he then threw the still warm corpse over his shoulder and nailed her to the statue (only a short walk away). Forrester then returned to Bumbtwe’s headquarters collected an unarmed Yvonne and walked home ashamed of himself.
