The last thing Lansen Adams expected after his struggle to be free from the guilt ridden woman was what he saw, scenes of carnage at odds with the immaculate blond woman who stood among it. She guided him, offering cryptic explanations that failed to shed light on the situation. For all appearances his family, the Rooney clan, had been wiped out. The answers perhaps were at the bottom of a whiskey glass at the Harp and Fiddle, and at the bottom of those glasses he found an answer in the form of the comforting touch of Andy Blue-eyes.
Meanwhile Hijinks ensued as Oswald the Omnipotent attempted to tame a wild van. Also, Batman.
Back at square one, the Harp & Fiddle Club started to look for clues anew, this time seeking knowledge from the Point Park Fountain spirit, and after a brief robbery, secured her help, in spite of attempts by trolls to spoil it all. Summer was after a relic of wars most ancient, the last Heir of Spring, who had somehow escaped notice since the Sidhe Wars. Now faced with the court of summer seeking to shift the balance of power, the Harp & Fiddle Club sought to find the Heir first.
Stig in an effort to aid in this task decided to try and trap one of the little people, and gain information on summers movements that way. He was successful enough in this, trapping one named Jingle Jangle, eventually resulting in learning that the Heir was not in fact a human, but a creature.
Meanwhile the others group elected to pay a visit to Warden William Teach following the advice of Father Daniel Andrea, and after a brief exchange, saw him send Irwin Herman, his apprentice along with the group to act on his behalf.
Somewhat stumped for the moment they asked Irwins advice, who suggested looking up reports of local unusual wildlife sightings. Their search turned up two results, An Albino Buck down in Somerset, and a Giant Snake in Dead Man’s Hollow.
Armed with a wealth of new information, they set Irwin to the task of creating an object to help them track deer, who seemed very confident in his ability to do so, and then left him to go hunt the snake. This proved surprisingly easy, but ended in a fight between Bartleby and Stig against the snake as Elsa tried to scare it and everyone else ran. Unfortunately it seem this snake was not the Heir. They returned back only to find that Irwins attempt at thaumaturgy had gone slightly awry, him now appearing like a man deer fusion.
Meanwhile, Griswald and Batman the confused gargoyle sought the deer, and as luck would have it found it, dealing with it on the other hand might prove more difficult.
