ZZ Adventures in the Savage North

Episode 1: Beating the Devil

June 18, the Feast of Leontius, Hypatius and Theodulus

Devil

After driving off the devil that had come to claim Walder Grayham’s soul, the night was blessedly peaceful. Despite his wounds it looked like the old innkeeper would live, and in the quiet of the night the rest of you were able to find some sleep while Jehanne kept vigil over him. By dawn, when the first brave scullion dared to climb down the stairs, he was awake again. In great pain, but awake. Not for long, though. The servants relieved Jehanne of her watch and carried the innkeeper up to his bed.

The inn was in a shambles, with furniture broken or scattered, and great gouges in the floorboards and the walls from the claws of the hellhounds. Black soot covered the fireplace and everything reeked of brimstone. The scullions and stableboys set to work repairing what they could and cleaning up the blood and the greasy, sulfurous ash that the hellhounds left behind. Meanwhile they cook swept up the broken glass and crockery in the kitchen, then began cooking massive amounts of food that soon overpowered the demonic reek with wholesome, savory smells.
