The Streets of Avalon. Twelve – Muddy Joe

Last time on the Streets of Avalon our rogues…no wait. The important thing to note is Fionn asked a lamplighter to rip her eye out and replace it with an Illithid’s pearl orb. There was also something about destroying or disposing of the box but really, her eye. I can’t wait to see what happens next with that.
