While his companions are off adventuring, Lotho takes a well earned break and hits the town intent on seeing all that Gizrik has to offer. He finds some drinking and gambling buddies. However, one of them gets sicks and Lotho takes him to an apothecary to get him all fixed up. However, Lotho forgets that all of his cash is tied up in his gambling and can’t pay the apothecary, who promptly curses Lotho and kicks him out of his shop. When Lotho goes back the next morning to pay him, he refuses as he is a sticker for prompt payment.
Meeting up with his friends in River New Bergwest Lotho learns that while he was learning all about Gizrik his friends had found a tree with magic pomegranates. After eating one of them a magical sword appears in his lap! He eats another and nothing happens and then promptly eats a third. Suddenly, a 12 foot tall demonic figure appears in the tavern where they were drinking and booms out “Lotho Hornblower, you have crossed me and for that I shall ruin everything you love!”
Lotho is no longer welcome in that bar.
With our buzz killed, we decided to go out and earn some money. The Sheriff didn’t have anything for us, so we headed over to Gizrik to see if there was any work to be had there. When we arrived, we learned that there have been a number of attacks by human bandits and a reward was offered for their capture.
We are able to track down the bandit’s lair. They have a ‘Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Shreaking Fungus’! Lotho promptly challenged the lead bandit to a duel and won. We then pretended to want to work with the bandits, Bob, George and Fred, but planned on ambushing them at the arranged meeting place. Fred, it turns out, is a badass. We are still able to defeat them and find some loot in their cave. After bringing them back to Gizrik to face justice Lotho decides to plant the three magical beans he found in the nearest plot of dirt, which, just happens to be in the middle of Gizrik. One of them turns into a peach tree that disappeared after a day or so. The second turns into a statue of Lotho that seems to hate him, cursing him when he’s around and trying to convince everyone to kill him when he’s not. The third grows into a beanstalk that pierces the heavens!
