Although the day had started innocently enough my discovery of a mysterious note on the floor of Steelhead’s town hall coupled with the two assumptions I made (and which proved somewhat embarrassingly to be totally flawed) soon changed this and ensured I was heading into mortal danger!
The first assumption I made was that the note obviously pertained to some illicit activity of the Bing Kong tong, the neighbourhood gang that ran every crooked game and every sorry lost girl in the slums. As I was to find out I could not have been wider of the mark had I tried!
The second, and by far the most near-disastrous assumption I made was that the named clothing store, Slade Outfitters, only had an outlet in New Babbage. As I was to discover later they had opened a brand new store much closer to home, indeed rather close to where I found the note, but at the time New Babbage was the only store I had any knowledge of.
Therefore, with the whiff of mystery in my nostrils and the thrill of daring-do coursing through my veins I set off to New Babbage and Slade Outfitters in Clockhaven!
