Iorgu: Most people, they leave me alone to drink.
Iorgu: They believe I drink to forget.
Iorgu: To forget the thrill of red trail in the snow,
Iorgu: the grip of knife, strong beat of dying heart.
Iorgu: They are wrong.
Iorgu: I drink to remember.
Iorgu: (pouring you a drink and handing it to you) And now, we drink together. We have matter to discuss. Noroc!
Iorgu: My place is in the wild, alone, where Iorgu need concern himself with Iorgu only.
Iorgu: I would never trap myself in this village by choice.
Iorgu: No, I owe these people debt.
Iorgu: They took me in when others would not.
Iorgu: This is a place that takes in all men,
Iorgu: and monsters.
Iorgu: So I stay, to repay debt. Only that.
Iorgu: I have scouted past the strigoi, the vampires, and the war machines, out to the edge of the fields.
Iorgu: I saw there, the creatures, they are building a great nest. A city.
Iorgu: I recognise great evil when I see it.
Iorgu: We must discover why they are here.
Iorgu: Where they came from. How they build. Where they get material.
Iorgu: So we can stop them.
Iorgu: So that I will have no more debt to repay.
Iorgu: But first, we drink! To remember!

The winds of change are blowing through the Carpathian countryside. It's not the first time and will not be the last. That is the way of all things.

Vampires dressing to sustain the sunlight and building siege engines to expand their territory? That is unprecedented.

It was your lot to halt the advance of the vampire army, and it is ours to ponder what it all means.

Keep following the will of the Dragon.



Yikes! A vampire Crusade can't be anything but super unsanitary. Bad news for the Romanians, I guess. Silver lining: I know not to cash out my options and invest in Carpathian real-estate.

This whole things seems better funded and more thoroughly planned than we first thought, and while I question their sense of fashion, I imagine those rags are for UV protection rather than an outfit designed for virgin pick-ups at the Club Med "After Dark" party.

Your report and successful sabotage have given me a leg up with the board of directors. Good for me is good for you. A win-win. Keep making me look good.



Talk about taking one for the team. That local moonshine can't have been easy on your palate. I'll be sure to have a nice, tempered Burgandy decanted and ready for you on your return.

This Vampire Crusade may be larger than we first anticipated. And the beasts have covered themselves in rags to sustain the sunlight? There must be more to this than a shortage of O negative.

Good job slowing them down a little. That will give us more time to figure out what's up in the Carpathians. Keep up the stellar effort.
