An Announcement [Backdated to March 13th]

[Later in the day, once everyone has had time to determine they aren't in Kansas anymore and can't get back there, they might find themselves approached by prinnies. The little plush creatures will simply say that 'The Prince wants you in the throne room, dood' before wandering off again.

If they follow these instructions, they'll find Laharl standing before his throne with his arms folded. Once enough people appear to have gathered, he speaks.]

For those of you who haven't already barged into my throne room today, I am Overlord Laharl. This is my castle, and you're all intruders here.

But considering it was unintentional, I'm willing to allow you to stay here until the Dimensional Gate is fixed, under certain conditions. Either you can make yourselves useful as my vassals, or you can pay rent. Those are your options.

Anyone who doesn't agree to them will be made to see reason.

[Adell stands toward the back of the throne room, arms folded over his chest, looking completely unimpressed at the Overlord's announcement. No way in hell would he be taking a knee and willingly calling himself a vassal of Laharl, and much less was he going to pay rent to him.

Unfortunately, it didn't look like he was going to have much choice. He'd rather keep his pride and just pay money than take orders from a brat like him. He knew the guy wasn't all bad after his experiences with him and knew well enough that him even making this offer was his idea of charity.

But he still didn't like it. Still didn't want to be here. He wanted to be back in Holt. He was so close to home he could taste it.

...But out of curiosity, he had to ask the question, even if it wasn't the path he wanted to take.]

So what kind of jobs do you have around here, if that's the way you want to go? Are we talking menial labor or are we talking actual, legitimate positions that actually have meaning?

[He notices... and figured such a thing might be possible. Looks like he's not only dislocated in space, but in time as well. Nothing new.

Still, he's going to be a wise-ass.]

I'd say Main Character, but I'm guessing it's just not my turn yet. Maybe later for that one.

[If he were any more (or less?) of a demon, he might take you up on that sometime.]

Side character, huh? Well, I've heard worse gigs. What would that take, out of pure curiosity?

And failing that, how much is rent? Especially if I start up my own business around here?

Guy's gotta make money somehow. And I don't really think you want me beating down your vassals or people of your Netherworld for cash every month. I figure it doesn't hurt to hedge your bets when we don't know how long the gate will be down, right?

And believe me, the last thing I want is to stay. I want to get home just as much as anyone.

[Now there was a glimmer of the good side Laharl had; the kind that cared for his vassals... in a roundabout way. While Adell's tone eased, he remained firm in his plan... and in some of his snark.]

You know you might've just doomed us all by saying that. If this were a horror flick, the audience would be groaning.

...But more seriously, what do you have to lose by my trying? You just stand to earn rent from me if I pull it off.

No, that's the part where you learn I was the axe murderer all along and I come back for the sequel.

[Taxes? Ugh. Knowing Laharl the taxes will be obscene. Well, he'll just have to be careful, then.]

Nah, too messy. I prefer the hands on approach. Sorry to disappoint, but that's just my style.

[Well, bantering with Laharl. Not quite how he expected this to turn out, but he's pretty okay with it.]
