The Nettlers (and Taeros) find confrontation beneath the Knifecrag Mountains when they run into Lord Edwardson and his escorts, who have braved the perilous Throat-Cutters’ Caverns in order to purchase a slave army for the royalist cause. After thoroughly (and messily) dispatching the former Lord Mayor of Nettle, they find a map to the secret underground palace of the deep elf slaver Slime, who Pendrel has sworn to dispatch. The group also encounters a wandering thief, a human who calls himself Humble even though he clearly isn’t, and they recruit him to their cause with promises of treasure in the lair of the dracolich. With a new party member along for the adventure, the Nettlers (and Taeros) decide to infiltrate the slaver’s palace by having Pendrel and Barnabas pose as Lord Edwardson’s paige and his bodyguard, while the rest sneak in and free the captives. However, their task might not be as easy as they imagine, for Slime and his gang of deep elves have developed a method of brainwashing that creates suicidally loyal troops. In addition, it just so happens that Pendrel’s former master, the despicable ogre Graytusk, has stopped in to purchase a new love slave. The Nettlers (and Taeros) soon discover that revenge is a dish best served cold, perhaps on whole wheat bread with lettuce and tomato and a little mayonnaise. Can they defeat Slime and Graytusk, free the captives, and continue on with their quest? Listen to find out!
