With the aid of the Demon ‘Tom’, the party knows the location of one Borax Tain. They seek to kill Tain in exchange for the Shining Blue Trapezohedron. At his front door they encountered a party of Vampires (inc Evergreen); the party opened fire. After a scrum, Evergreen’s minions left her alone, but the party was injured, so they called for parley. After a brief discussion, they came to an agreement, the vampires were only interested in a cup; they would not interfere with the party as long as the party let them have the cup. So the party made quasi-deal and entered the lair of the Devil without further harassment by the undead.
