The slums are a rundown, old heap of a town tucked deep in the jungles, with townsfolk consisting mostly of poachers, black marketeers, thieves, and fugitives. While the ideal tourist spot, some travel to the Slums to make use of the black markets. (+2 Defense, +2 Speed)

Return to The Slums

Find A Home [Self | L]

Postby Sarah » 01/23/2017 4:23 PM

Eirke stalked the streets of the slums. Around him the world became quiet as citizens found other places to be. He hated the slums, the entire place had been reduced to either Markus’ creeps or Malek’s. So few true citizens remained, their blood long since washed away from the dirt and muck of the place. His presence had become an unfortunate necessity. One of Markus’ nastier demons had been flayed, and a blade made of foreign substance had been plunged into his eye.

He hadn’t cared much for the demon, but it took away from Markus’ power and so he had been sent to right some wrongs. It was assumed that Malek was behind the assault, but Eirke knew better than that. Eirke had strong ties to Malek, he knew the demon lord wasn’t a total moron.

Noon had come by the time he reached the corpse. It was still decomposing in the hot jungle sun. No one had dared touch it, not that he blamed them. The body smelt like nothing he could describe, and it looked like it had melted into the dirt rather well.

A name was lost to him as he stared at the body. He didn’t feel sorry for the demon, but he did feel sorry for the people who lived in the body’s vicinity. Arms crossed over his chest, Eirke sighed. “Well, he is dead,” he said. Sometimes when they get reports of a dead demon it was really just a demon faking their death to try and get out of Markus’ grip. It never worked and then Eirke had to go through the annoying process of tracking them down and either killing them or bringing them home.

A snap of his fingers and the dogs came. They would eat well today, as he hadn’t cleaned up a body in months. Not that their weren’t bodies, but he’d been away for quite some time. This might have meant the war finally broke out. If only he were so lucky. Instead he would report back to Markus that something in the slums had been provoked. Eirke was surprisingly unfamiliar with other planar beings, so he could only guess at what might have been provoked. He would be sure to send a more competent demon next, in hopes that whatever it was had merely been protecting itself.

The Slums looked as they always did, but a bit dryer. Dirt roads, filthy people, buildings that were barely recognizable. It was their understanding that Eirke was rather pissed about the whole situation. They did not care for the Slums, but they knew the importance of controlling it. They both shared the thought that Malek was doing a fine job of taking care of the place. This whole tension between the lords made little sense to them, but they were ever loyal to Markus.

It just meant they had to look after a place that was not owned by their master. The task seemed tedious, even more so now that they knew it wasn’t Malek who had killed the last demon in charge. Story was that they would be safe so long as they weren’t complete imbeciles. Together they were quite the team, surely they would have no troubles at all keeping the place in good running condition.

“He died right outside his doorway huh?” Fallon said. It was a shitty way to go, but he was quite a shitty demon.

“At least the stench of death is gone… mostly,” Wenton said. The dirt was still a disgusting mixture of earth and blood and flesh. Not even the hounds could clean up all the mess. Flies and maggots writhed in the remains.

“Once the rain begins again it’ll be gone,” Fallon reminded. They were in the jungle, it was only a matter of time before the rain fell. He didn’t mind waiting a bit for it to come, the remaining smell almost perfectly matched the stench of the rest of the Slums.

Wenton carefully stepped around the death and entered the ‘house’. “Quite the mansion we’ve landed ourselves in,” he said dryly. The place was at least made of something sturdy, something that would keep them dry when said rain returned. The inside was dark, but he could tell it was trashed. “Do we have electricity? Plumbing?” he asked.

“Yes,” Fallon said with a sigh. He flicked the lights on and took in their humble abode. It looked simultaneously like parties were held non stop and that it had been abandoned for years. Fallon rested his face in his hands defeated. “Eirke didn’t think to make this livable? Does he hate us?”

“He probably does, but less than anyone else,” Wenton said. The place was absolutely deplorable. His stomach was flipping just standing in the room. He couldn’t even imagine trying to sit on anything. Wenton looked at Fallon, his dull purple eyes filling with tears. “Please don’t make me live here,” he said quietly.

Fallon was a bit surprised at Wenton’s sudden crying. He was in front of the man instantly, arms wrapping around him. “No, no. I would never do that to you,” Fallen cooed. “We will find someplace nice in the city and I’ll send in workers to make this place nice,” he said.

Wenton leaned back a bit looking into Fallon’s eyes. “Thank you,” he said, his tears leaving just as soon as they had come.
