You pop shorty once in the leg with your Sixshot [22 ==> 21] and steal his effigy off of him. Your Hunter Killer Hawk flies into the conductor's car and hands you Slim's Effigy. Now you have the upper hand: Slim's hanging off of the side of the train, Shorty's incapacitated, and you have both of their effigy's

Oh, wait, that's the conductor. He's been turned into a tree also.

We should still get away from it, just in case Shorty makes it attack us!

Let's destroy the effigies and then tell Shorty to undo the tree stuff he's doing!

Tree branches shoot out of the ground towards you.

>rolled 19 + 6 = 25

Luckily you're fast enough to dodge them. The branches hit the side of the room and bend the steel of the wall opening a hole in the train.

Tell your hunter-killer to destroy Laurence's effigy, then shoot Donny's effigy. Sit down by Donny, point your gun at him and flip the bird-skull the bird.

"Donny, call your brother. Tell him to un-summon his Denizen right the goddamn now, unless he wants you to be caught up in its blast effigy-less."

Charm and speech bonus.

On the one hand, ough, that's low. On the other, if I've read the situation right, we might have a hell of a circumstance bonus.

Also, thinking about it, sitting down might not be necessary. Just being in the immediate vicinity should do, looking at the spread of that beam.

Before the Crow's Skull can fire you roll to where Shorty is and grab him by the neck while the same time crushing his effigy in your hand. The Hawk cracks Slim's effigy in its claw. You point your Sixshot at Shorty's head.

The Crow's Skull stops charging its beam and stares at you and Shorty, soon Slim climbs through the hole in the wall and gets a view of the scene before him. There's a long silence before Slim says anything.

Slim: Well? What's it gonna be?

Shorty: Laurence you can't-

Slim: Donny. Be quiet. So you got demands or you just plan to kill us here and now ?
>>
No. 818232 ID: 094652

Shoot Donny in the neck to show you're serious. When he gets angry, threaten to destroy the Azerite chunk. He'll listen.

The "deal" is simple. Slim leaves. That's it. Risking Donny's life to bleedout is Slim's "Idiot tax", but he can cut his losses now and hope to whatever voodoo

(check for sneak attack here)

god he grovels before to spare his brother, or just rush in and die while you use what's left of Donny as a mana pool for your magic.

Order Slim to reverse the hex that's keeping everyone a tree, then get off the train. Shorty will be left at the next stop without any further harm as long as they both cooperate. If Slim tries anything funny, then Shorty's going to be a head shorter.

>So you got demands or you just plan to kill us here and now?
"I'll only kill you if you do something stupid."

"First of all, get rid of that crow skull. Next, undo your tree bullshit and free everyone. Finally, explain how the fuck you assholes knew I was going to be on this train."

As soon as they undo the tree stuff, Issei should be able to smell blood and voodoo magic and he'll come over here, with Troy right behind him!

>>818232
No, that's too much.

No. 818241 ID: fc33ea

Calm down Donny, your pal here isn't stupid, is he Lawrence. What you're going to do is turn all the trees back into people, and then fuck as far off away from me as is possible and never come back. You haven't won an engagement yet and the next time I see you or shorty here, you'll both have jigsaw puzzles for heads.

People like you burn fate.

"Laurence, the worst deal you ever made was the one that put you in my line of fire. Wotcher contracts say? How deep you in? Any way to back out, renegotiate, repay, renege? You got into this shit for your bro. Can you get out, or is your voodoo dependency the one-way street of crippling debt I've been told it is?"

You: I don't plan on killing anybody unless you do something stupid. First, I want tweety bird over there gone, it's making me nervous.

Slim snaps his fingers and the skull dissipates into the air.

You: Good, now let's get these people fixed. Which ever one of you's making the passengers into trees knock it off.

Shorty mutters something under his breath and the air in the train car feels like it's gotten lighter, the train conductor turns back to normal, though he's unconscious and you can assume the rest of the car is the same way.

You:...and now this one might be a bit of a stretch, but I don't ever want to see you two around again or I will not be as merciful.

You let go of Donny and push him towards Laurence. You begin to remember things you shouldn't now in the first place.

You: How deep are in this voodoo thing Laurence ? You got into it for your brother but now it looks like you're just getting him in more danger.

Laurence: You don't know shit! Alright pagan ? You got your victory this time but I ain't backin down from this, big things are comin' and I ain't gettin' left behind.

Laurence snaps his fingers and the two fade from existence leaving no trace they were ever there.

You feel tired...

Ok, put your gun away and wake the conductor up so that the train doesn't end up getting derailed or something!

Then head back to your seat where Troy and Issei are. If they're unconscious, then wake them up.

If Troy asks where the food is, start by saying, "I've got a perfectly good explanation for that and neither of you are gonna like it." Then explain everything that happened, including the part where everyone was a bunch of trees.

If they complain about you letting the voodoo brothers go, tell them, "Oh, trust me, this is their only chance. If we see them again and they try to fuck with us again, feel free to kill them." Oh, and don't forget to tell Troy and Issei how to kill the voodoo brothers, in case they run into them without you.

You meander back over to your seat where Issei and Troy are waiting, they seem to have waken up from their sleep.

Troy: There you are! did ya find the food cart? And...didn't you go the other way?

You: Long story.

Issei: gallows are you bleeding ?

You: Spilled ketchup on myself, anyway here's your food.

You drop off the bowl of chowder and the strawberry salad on the table then slide into your seat. From here on it should be a smooth ride to Ender Port.

By leveling up, you can now upgrade one of your abilities to give it more power or a new functionality.

Choose one of the upgrades.

[Aether Sight] ==> [Aether Scan]: Aether Scan let's you assess enemy health more accurately

Shorty: Boss I'm sorry this job didn't go so well... we let ya down.

Slim: I let you down Boss, I wasn't ready to risk Donny's life for this. I understand if I'm going to be punished but-

Boss: Boys. You both did well, the fact that things when south was a matter of bad luck. The fact that you're both alive despite the destruction of your effigy's is good.

Boss: Slim, you did the right thing.

Boss: Anyway, I'm putting this plan on ice. I underestimated the Pagan, and the fact that he's got more allies is only making this harder.

Boss: we're going with plan B

Boss flips open a gold pocket watch and glances at the time, behind him an ethereal creature materializes from nothing. A Lowa stands behind boss whispering into his ear.

Lowa: y0u kn0w h3 can s33 y0u r1ght ?

Boss: Yeah, being that close to Azerite for that long does that to ya.

Lowa: y0u s33m pr3tty calm d3sp1t3 running 0ut 0f t1m3, y0u hav3n't f0rg0tt3n 0ur d3al hav3 y0u ?

The Lowa Datba's form disperses and Boss is left alone once more.

Boss: Things are getting heated, and the game hasn't even begun yet.
