What happened before
After the bowling alley massacre, we effectively flee the scene of the fight. We’re picked up very quickly by someone we identify as a sidhe, and a powerful one at that. We try and find a place that might be tactically defensible, and take the pursuit out of town to an abandoned church, which is surrounded on three sides by running water. We then realize that the sidhe really isn’t going to be hindered by this, and that we’ve basically boxed ourselves in. This is reinforced when tons and tons of sluagh start arriving, in anticipation of the carnage to come. We bargain with them, trying to make them at least neutral, and while making deals with fae is never good, we buy ourselves time time. Five years, in fact . . . but that might not work out as we thought. The sluagh mistress, in order to secure her future interests, “helps” us escape – taking us to the fae lands of Underhill. We journey down the King’s road, and eventually meet the king, and of course also the father of the sidhe we killed in the bowling alley. Some major bard-song later, we manage to escape back to the real world – but not before agreeing to meet the champions of the sidhe in combat to settle the matter once and for all.
Oh, and also Timothy got completely vamped by a ridiculously hot faerie lady, who started the conversation saying nice things about Timothy’s car, and ended up giving him the ride of his life . . . and whenever faeries do that sort of thing . . . bad things happen later. Changelings? Yeah, don’t want to be the baby-daddy of that kind of union, but we’re pretty sure that’s what’s going to happen.
Never mess with fae. Never make deals with fae. Never travel through fae lands. And definitely do not have sex with fae. We managed to do all four.
