Oh yeah, Mr Chompers is still in there with him.

Since you did damage to him while he was channeling a spell or hex or whatever voodoo has he shouldn't be able to cast for a while.

(That's a good rule to remember it applies to you too)

Then again you haven't seen a voodoo user before you've only read about them, but nothing you have read could have prepared you for seeing one to just get shot in the goddamn head and NOT DYING.
No. 801712 ID: 3abd97

There's probably a voodoo doll somewhere where a blown off head right now. Or an unlucky minion. Damage shunt. Like when they stab a doll with needles to hurt someone, except backwards.

Watch to make sure Mr. Chompers gets him, then we need to get control of your chain-chomp before it wrecks the shop, or finds the shopkeep.

You'd think so but voodoo users are tricky, you've heard that they can be buried 10 feet underground and appear back on above ground in less than an hour.

Voodoos nothing like Demonic Magic or Miracles. Demonic Magic involves drawing energy from the Aether and demons and using it to cast spells, the same with Miracles but a shrine and catalyst are required to cast and the magic is provided by gods.

but Voodoo doesn't draw energy from any outside source, voodoo just takes the laws of the world and bends them depending on how the user sees fit. Of course its more complicated than that but its still weird as hell.

You know of a similar technique using demonic magic so you understand how this may work, but that would mean this guys unkillable, no there's gotta be some limit to his power. You've just gotta find what is is.
No. 801720 ID: 17c2ee

He's trying to stop the summon from eating him. Either that'll actually harm him or he has to pay something to keep his voodoo going. Either way looks like you can keep going until he dies.
No. 801724 ID: 3abd97

He can probably only stop himself being killed so much before he actually gets killed.

This sounds like a good idea.

Hold up a moment before you make a major tactical mistake. You've lost track of this voodoo boss' surviving goon, which means Fate'll make sure he'll pop up again at the worst time and somehow screw everything up for you. He could run out the front door and attack you, or has fled down into the basement and is fighting Ulrik. Or he could simply spot you trying to aim at his boss and call you out. So find that mook and put a bullet through his head or heart first to take him out of the equation. And since his boss is tied up resisting getting chomped and his voodoo is on cooldown, you won't have to worry about him until his magic recovers. Now, about how long would you guess that is?

Pull out your mirror and carefully use it to peek over the window frame, survey the scene and try and locate the mook, then reposition for a better shot on him if you have to.

Did you notice if there was a back way into the shop? Or if not, if there was a back room? While if there's a entrance back there it's probably locked, it'll be good info to know for later if you have to flee out that way for some reason.

Also, what're the odds that this fight'll bring the Regent Church authorities down on Ulrik's place? This mess hasn't been subtle in the slightest and you did summon a demon right on the sidewalk. If there was a God-fearin' follower watchin' they'll be running to the nearest guard station to tattle. And even if you're victorious here and save Ulrik, he'll be massively pissed off if the Church descends and seizes and searches his shop, and probably soon after arrest him.

Why are you suggesting to aim at his legs? I'd think it'd be better to aim for his elbow or shoulder so he can't hold the gluttony demon back from chomping down on him.

Holy shit you completely forgot about the short one, you peek over the windowsill with your mirror, He's drawing some sort of sygil on the wall. Knowing voodoo it's not a summon sygil, its most likely a catalyst for a powerful hex or curse.

It'd be best to not let that continue. You don't have a lot time to focus on the short guy though, the boss' power should be drained for about 5 more minutes after the interruption.

Good news is they're both pretty preoccupied and and seem to be looking your way.

Shit, you did use a summon and fire off a bunch of bullets. The demon energy plus the voodoo is probably giving off a lot of unholy energies right now.

It looks like Mr Chompers didn't survive that throw, Level 1 demons aren't very durable despite the damage they can do.

Looks like you might have to... Shit you hear guards!
No. 801789 ID: 91ee5f

You know what really sucks? The smuggling weapon sho owner is going to get caught also and that'll take away your chance to ask him to smuggle you out of the city!

Also, the guards might recognize you, so it'll probably help if the guards don't find you, since you just busted out of prison earlier.

There is always a chance that these guards are super religious and identify all magic thats not there's as heresy. So Voodoo=Paganism=HERESY! So if thats the case we can maybe help tell the guards that Ulrik is innocent and since we were just in the store the demonic activity only started after these heretic gangsters appeared

You need Ulrik if you're gonna get outta this damn city, you can't just leave him at the city guard's mercy.

The guards round the corner and approach the shop.

Guard 1: It's coming from over here! hurry up.

You: Guard ! Guard! I need your help, Its urgent!

You: There are demon summoning heretics in that shop trying to attack the poor upstanding shop keeper, please you have to apprehend them !

Guard 2: Don't worry ma'am, we're on it.

The guards continue down to the shop and you follow behind, The Roaming Gluttony (Mr Chompers) has fully dissolved and it seems the Voodoo boss is gone along with the little guys corpse. Ulrik is standing behind his counter running his fingers through his hair.

Ulrik: Damn Shadowmen, d'ey actually managed ta get me shop dis time, can't turn ya back fo a secon' in dis damn city.

Guard 1: Don't worry sir we've got this under control, we'll clean up the blood and the voodoo sign but we cant cover the damages to the window or any other property in the building.

Ulrik: Ye'... O'course ye' can't, anyway ey got business else where so al be gettin' on me way.

So is Mr Chompers dead, or did he just get unsummoned by losing physical form?

Demons can't die, they just lose their physical form and return to the Aether even if they crossed over to the physical world themselves instead of being summoned. Priest have methods of real killing demons though.

You make your way back with Ulrik.

You: How'd you know I beat those guys ?

Ulrik: I got's viewin' sygil's written on me shop walls an hooked up to a moniter in da basement. You's got quite da shot wit a pistol ya know.

You: Thanks, is that the stuff for Luucc ?

Ulrik: Nah, but ah need dis stuff ta get Luucc's stuff. dere's a whole orda to dese dings.

You: Also umm, is you're smuggling business okay ? Those guards aren't gonna find important stuff down in you basement if they serach right.

Ulrik: Nuh-uh, Ah keep me smugglin' stuff at anotha place. Dey ain't gonna find nothin' but orda forms and ingots.

-We probably could use more magic user stuff, including another mirror.
-We might get away with looting Ulrik's shop a little, although I'm wary of stealing from someone we need help from that might wait for the last moment to punish us. Perhaps salvage his merchandise, deliver it, and ask for something to take on the way?

You order the Warboar Stew, The hot thick broth and chunky bits of beef go together perfectly. There's a bit of spiciness to it too that adds another layer of warmth. Filling and very well made.

You don't really need to help out in the Inn, you've made a nice chunk of change for the day. Besides you're also very tired and the stew you ate is only making you groggier.

As for your magic supplies mirrors aren't the only things you can use for summoning, a lot of the time ingredients don't specifically call for a mirror usually its "Something Reflective" or "Something Rusty" maybe, It depends on what you want to summon. Still, more ingredients and materials would be nice to have. Ulrik's going to find his supplier to get Luucc's stuff tomorrow, maybe that'll a good place to shop.

Scavenging around a shop thats probably swarming with city guards after a heretical gang fight might not be a great idea either, plus you don't want to steal from a guy helping you.

As for leaving the city early, you need Ulrik to get out of here and he's sleeping upstairs. There's no way you're gonna just walk out of this place being wanted and all, plus the so called Shadowmen seem like trouble. Your best bet is to go to sleep and wait for morning.

You pay Luucc 20 gold for a room and head up the stairs.

There aren't many places to hide in here so you doubt someone would be in waiting to strike, nothing under the bed and the dresser doesn't have enough room to hide in or behind. The dresser does have 5 Gold left in it though.
You don't know any rituals that would protect you and summoning would give off a lot of demonic energy that could be tracked, it's best you just rely on your own extremely built physique in case.

The window can be opened and closed, you've got a nice view of Itsdin rooftops. you place your knife under your pillow just in case anyone comes creeping into your room
