He even had good news when he informed me that two more production facilities had joined my efforts. It appears that it is time to begin building my distribution network. I made my way over to the jumping monkey, and made things brutally clear, by showing the severed head of the Provoker. It didn’t take long to show the new manager, (who was quite the stubborn Jakis) who was really in charge. Upon hearing about our plans to add a third establishment to the monkey franchise, a “Humping Monkey”, all doubts were erased in the man’s eyes. Sensing the speed at which this endeavor was growing, It became quickly apparent to me that I would need someone I could trust in this town to keep things running smoothly, and to control the day to day operations of my production facilities, as well as keeping a close eye on the monkeys for me.

After some deliberation, it appears that our goal is clear, we must seek out the Lich, and destroy it if necessary.
