Chapter 12: Jenkles
As Spook, Rhen, and Nox squelched through the waterways, they noticed something. The slime was moving. More than one time it tried to envelop them, before being popped by Rhen's blade.
After what seemed like hours they emerged from the sludge. It oosed down the hatch in pursuit, but quickly gave up the chase. The trio looked onward, and Spook was spooked (yeehaw!). All around them, meandering about, were vampires, and what looked to be ghosts.
The ghosts simply passed through and by the spy, sword singer, and necromancer, dodging the cold iron and chilling the trio to the bone. The vampires stalked them, but with a wave of her hand, Nox put them in a state of docility.
After an eternity to the spy and singer, they walked under an archway leading into a large cavern. Seeing a figure standing at the end of a walkway, they cautiously stepped toward it. Then it turned, revealing that it was a clown. Spook was spooked (hehe). After an argument about Spook's name not being Georgie, but him knowing a Georgie, the clown challenged the trio to a game of riddles to the death. Somehow the spy, singer, and necromancer won.
The clown gave them a stone, explaining the history of Agea, then complained that he hadn't eaten a child in ages. He left Spook spooked.
