, Kevin Matchstick
, and Joe Phat
have lunch and get to know each other better. Wally Ut
shows up uninvited and continues to ramble on about being Kevin's second mage, and to offer unsolicited advice. While not altogether sane, he does seem to have at least some powers. However, the heroes continue to ignore him and once again drive off. They are trying to figure out what's going on. It used to be that they could find a "nasty" in every town or so, but now there are strange groupings. The nasties seem to be on the move, and they don't know why. They go to the house of Isis, a witch, to see if she can offer any advice.
The Pale Incanter
is seen building a huge golem
. He seems to have some direct connection to Kevin's power, waking up whenever it is used.
