In this week’s installment of Fate’s Fools, Walter, T’mek, Fen and co. begin to explore the underground kingdom of Valkonia! Leaving their new companion Piotr behind while he vision quests at the behest of his nameless deity, they find themselves traversing the subterranean swamp known as The Desolate Slough of the Savior, deep elf held territory. However, when a whirlpool suddenly appears in the murky swamp waters, Walter, T’mek and Eebmox find themselves sucked into the Death Caves below, which serve as the hallowed burial ground of the Valkonian dwarves. They decide to make the best of a bad situation by looting a tomb, and Walter uses his vial of pure enchantment magic to create a new companion. Meanwhile, Fenfaril and Baldwin find themselves in the custody of the fearsome warrior elves that inhabit the swamp, and Fen learns a terrible secret about the misspelled marking he now bears. Will these poor idiots ever see each other again, or has Destiny finally gotten the better of them?
