It took a second for that number to register. “Wait, what?”

You didn’t think she’d give us this monstrosity without any funds to get started, did you? This place is probably the biggest money pit I’ve ever seen.

He tried to be smart about it and just stuck with his friends. When their basketball game concluded, he asked them if they wanted to come over to his house and play some other games. They agreed but still ended up finding excuses to abandon him along the way. He knew they were just uncomfortable in these fancier neighborhoods, but still. He really wished they would’ve stuck with him a bit longer.


  1. Any plans on doing blueprints for Warrenhold? Nothing fancy, just a general outline of where everything is?

  2. One day, maybe, but not any time soon.

  3. At least Marcos has the good sense to trust his instincts
