After making a delivery to Smyth the Living Forge, agents Splash Winterfall and D. B. Gengar were confronted in the streets of Dead End by Miranda the Black Witch. She revealed that she was party to the incident at the Church of Fallen Kings, and had tracked down Splash using the charm he’d plucked from the eviscerated remains of her vine monster.
While the agents were reluctant to talk shop, Miranda shared her own theories as to who might have acquired Shadow’s Play. The agents learned that several zombies had very recently been spotted entering Lustrum Falls. Miranda suspected that Zombie King Zeke might be using them to arrange a trade with Aelphaba the Grey Witch.
Miranda bolstered the charm to shield them against the dangers of Lustrum Falls, and as she took to the air she offered a reward for information if the agents happened to stop by the lair of the Grey Witch sometime.
After a quick stop at HQ, the agents left with Frederick Gerard for Lustrum Falls. As promised, the charm kept the agents safe from the random natural disasters that had befallen the zombies interlopers. The agents discovered that each of the seven zombies carried a large placard inscribed with pieces of a personal message from Zeke himself. The short version of the message was that Zeke wished to trade Shadow’s Play for a way to bring something called the Boneshaker to Arbenzafe, and that Raziel was also interested in acquiring the sword.
At this point the agents were finally noticed by Frag, one of the five Natural Disasters of Lustrum Falls. Miranda, who had been secretly monitoring everything through her charm, was able to direct the fleeing agents to a hidden cave in the mountainside. There the agents met Cromwell, an older red dragon and personal friend of Miranda’s. He revealed an escape tunnel that led out to the Necropolis, where the agents emerged with help from Lackluster Percival.
