You find your first bit of graffiti... chalked on the pavers of the road.

IF YOU ARE WILLING

           THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY

                WHY WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW

                     PROSPER TODAY


AS ABOVE

"As above, so below?  That sounds like something Tripartite.  Not sure how that connects with a wandering shop."

"Hmm... perhaps. It seems to dismiss that which the tripartite god forbids, in order to reap the rewards of quick and easy power... Such is the path of those who deal with demons, and at great cost. It is such as these fools, the shop wants to find, so they become unwittingly or otherwise...Agents of chaos."

"Yes. Why worry about tomorrow, which is eternal damnation for demon lovers, in order to get the benefits now. A typical demonic statement of forgetting about the consequences. As above, so below. City above, city below. We need to find an undercity."

"Northport's riddled with ways down -- from the Guild hall directly, and seemingly from half the basements around.  Got a particular one in mind?"

If after his examination of the area turns up no more graffiti, he will head back toward's Ashbury's place.

Grimaldi sees another bit of grafitti, thistime in charcoal on a whitewashed wall, that has one phrase, another appears on a nearby building:

WHY SWEAT
           WHY CRY
             WHY BLEED


      NO ONE LISTENS

WE HAVE WHAT YOU NEED

"Hmm.. there's more here. Let us not be hasty, and leave the area yet.. I feel we are close!" Grimaldi will approach the wall, in question...

Ardenas follows Grimaldi, looking around for anywhere he recalls having an undercity entrance, or anything that looks out of place.

"That certainly looks aimed to attract the down and out."

Once again, there is chalking on pavement heading around the block and into an alley.

NEED SOMETHING?

          JUST ASK

NO CONTRACTS

          JUST A TASK

Grimaldi spots the new graffiti.
"So... That's what they're doing.. They use customers as their agents of choas. I wonder how many "Faustsians", as it were, they have roaming the city.."

"See, that's just the thing.. Endeavors of this particular nature, usually involve contracts. There must be some dangerous trick of sorts, even accepting doing a task for these kind. So, who's volunteering to do their task? I'd like to keep my soul, merci beaucoup!"
Grimaldi smiled wryly within his cowl.

"Maybe they've found a way to enforce a verbal contract?  My dad used to say a verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on, but if you have the power of the demon realms behind you, maybe it's enforceable."

"I wonder how much my limited magical ability would -- oh, wait, if they've made it like a spell scroll, anyone with any kind of magical talent can cast it, as long as they can read it.  And I recall Master Rethki talking about demon summoning being far easier than it ought to be.

"He said it was probably because the demons have done everything possible in their own realm to prepare the way."

anyone with demon lore, make a roll. Occultism at -4 will serve also.
