After the indignity they suffered being ambushed at the edge of the Savage Lands, Merman and Mantis headed south to regroup, and decided they needed a “me day”. Traveling to the Marshes of Morva, the two treated themselves to some R&R at the Three Sisters Bathhouse, (more of a mud-pit to be honest). Orddu, Orwen, and Orgoch run a neutral establishment, open to the good, bad, fair, and ugly. (While it’s a mixed clientele, those with good intent and those with a predilection towards the nefarious tend to gravitate towards separate sides of the mire).
Settling into their mud bath, the two hampered henchmen discuss their next steps. Both are tempted to throw in the towel and be done with the Creature, (and their own uncomfortable alliance) once and for all, but the fact of the matter is they are both just as stubborn as they are villainous, and neither would dream of admitting defeat before the other. And so they find themselves, unwillingly paired, and serving a mad prince who’s been phoning it in since they abandoned the castle, all for the sake of their pride.
Neither were eager to report back to the Creature, especially with only news of their own ineptitude relay. They resolved to settle into the warm mud and ruminate on how best to employ their mutual skill sets (and how best to use one another for their own gain) moving forward. After the breakneck pace of their weeks’ long road trip the heat and the soothing earth lulled them into a prompt, deep slumber. *Continued In Comments* #spaday #metime #mudbath #merman #kinghiss #heman #motu #mantis #piratesofdarkwater #namur #marvel #mcu #toycrewbuddies #toyphotography #rainbowlockschronicles #microcosmical
