Lars smiles at Creamor and bends down to touch the blood flowing out of Donnigan.  He straightens a bit and begins chanting a section of the Contract that speaks of the power of Asmodeus while drawing the Asmodean symbol on Creamor's chest.  "Rise, Creamor, servant of Asmodeus.  May your efforts crush our enemies and bolster our god."

With the solemn rite completed, Lars turns to Janus and says, "While Barden and I can certainly handle it, who will be impersonating Father Donnigan?  Are any of you familiar with the rites and prayers some of the faithful will ask to be performed?  How will you calm the panic of the words dangerous disease and quarantine?  Remember that these folk are like sheep: docile until frightened and then they will scatter to the winds.  Our master wants the town destroyed.  He doesn't need people flying to the wind causing others to come here."  Pausing for a moment, he adds, "I suppose you could simply say that you are busy with Mama Guiseppe's illness and that they should return to their homes and pray for her well being.  That should keep rumors from spreading too quickly."

If you don't like the author's description of his own character I don't know what to tell you other than to read the novels yourself.

  Clearly screenwriters and actors HAVE brought something to the character that resonates for people over the author's original vision. That happens. A lot actually. A good flesh and blood performance is one of the strengths of the medium vs. the written word.

See Arnie's Conan for another example being the image that so many people associate with the character; it's such a shame that Mamoa's arguably more book-accurate version got stuck with what was a relatively poor Conan story

Mama Guiseppe!Janus gestures towards where her satchel of death is resting. "No problem, there's still two charges left in mine," she says, swinging herself a little unsteadily out of the bed and examining the body of the priest.

"Barden, you and Lars should go and kill the neighbour's family before they wonder where the real thing has gone, yes?" Pulling free the daggers, she hands them back to their owner. "Professor, you and Aiden need to help me strip this dead meat before too much blood soaks into his things that it can't be washed out while I change shape."

"Sure thing," the bard nods, cleaning the priest's blood off his weapons on the robes of Sister Talya. "One last kiss goodnight for them."

In other shocking, shocking news:  Using fines to make up for lack of a tax base erodes trust in the local police forces.

The actually shocking thing is Mother Jones publishing an article with which I agree.  What is the world coming to?

I'm more worried about where the world is going to.  What do we hit first, Shadowrun's MegaCorps or Metal Gear's War Economy?  As for the article, some parts are right.  I'm not sure you can blame suicide on police interaction.  Maybe you can.  I dunno.  I think the true problem is society as a whole and police and the poor are stuck in the middle.

Important tip for social characters:

When Haggling, use your free raise, then Impress, then Haggle.

This.  Definitely this.  In the Friday game we play our Face character has mastered this.  They use Charming (I think that is the ability) to get free Disposition, then Impress, then go for the objective.

Creamor stood up again, licking away some of the blood that trickled from his sharp fangs. He concentrated a few moments on the incantation to remove the slight soreness from the priests hit against him, before speaking:
"Yes, that's a good idea. But it won't be me. I already burned a charge to get here.

But before we go, I have a request for Lars."

Creamor took a half-kneel before the priest: "We have slain a servant of our Lord's enemy. And as I rammed my fangs into his flesh I realized it is time: I ask you to anoint me with the blood of our foes in the name of Asmodeus."
