During the last night of their otherwise uneventful camping trip, the group’s dinner is interrupted by a heavily covered person asking if they have any food. Said person is invited to sit around and chat for a while if they like – which basically amounts to Nixie, Al and Carmen bombarding the poor thing with questions to make sure their guest is really out here of their own volition.
As it turns out, no, they aren’t. After much prodding and poking around, they learn that their guest, “Hattie,” is actually a demon from Cecelyne’s city in Malfaes – a neomah, a weaver of flesh. She had apparently been summoned by a fat man with (only a little) stringy grey hair and a hooked nose. She completed her side of the bargain (which she declines to describe) but rather than returning to Malfaes like she assumed she would, the man instead drove her out – two hours outside Thunder City – and just… left her there.
In exchange for answering their numerous questions, they have agreed to banish Hattie back to her home city, though it’s a shame they have no leads on who would summon a demon and then drop them in the woods like a dead body.
