Well this guy is mostly just a colorful way to get you to the plot giver, and neither he nor the five-headed guy are particularly likely to take an attack from Asskick as malicious I don't know that it counts as an inconvenience.
I am planning on giving you guys a Fate Point for being dragged on this adventure against your will (even if you'd probably go along willingly) if that helps any.
BTW, are Manipulator's Stunts effectively disabled? After all, they make no sense right now.
If so, wondering if I can get some Fate Points in exchange for them not working throughout this mess.
If not, going to trade in a Fate Point to get a piece of useful information. How that happened without Manipulator turning out to be a mystic I don't know, but I'm sure SilverCatMoonPaw can work something out.
