Yes. This time we're exploring Aveh's capital, Bledavik, and plotting ways to bust Margie out of the prison she doesn't know she's in. We meet Ramsus, Miang, Shakhan, Vanderkaum, and an absolute wreck of a man who lives in the sewer. We wonder if gambling is the only human vice the stretches through time, speculate who's behind Dan's mysterious agency, and appreciate the interplay between fighting and sneaking. The best cure I ever came across for hangover was raw meat, and plenty of it.
