In last night's Weird Adventures game, Creskin and Don Diabolico set out to help poor, wayward deb Sue Ann Wilde who'd been taken advantage of by her ex-boyfriend--the now deceased ghoul, Dean. Dean had taken her to a antiquarian book dealer, Leland Throne, who dabbled in photography--specifically, compromising photos he could presumably sell to private collectors or use as blackmail.
Diabolico got to show off his gentleman thief skills by getting them into Throne's book shop in the middle of the night. A hidden ledger and a stray picture of Sue Ann let the boys know they were on the right track. They confirmed Throne was planning to call Sue Ann's wealthy father for blackmail.
The two paid a visit to Throne's residence on the Upper Eld Side. They discovered that Throne had gaudy tastes in home furnishings--and had a pet baboon!
Not wanting to tangle with a baboon and Throne in the middle of the night, our heroes returned rested (and spell replenished) the next day when Throne was at work.
A quick sleep spell put the the baboon down. Rummaging through Throne's stuff turned up a lot of risque photos--including the ones of poor Sue Ann. They also found the vial with the potion Throne had used to drug her and another with potion of bull's vigor--which the local pharmacist implied was a sexual enhancement.
So they don't come off as too altruistic, I should point out that Creskin and Diabolico robbed both Throne's backroom safe at work and his strongbox at home. They even stole his camera and the decorative (maybe) scimitar hanging on the wall over his bed. Maybe we can file that all under "getting what he deserved?"
