Of villains, vampires and other similar joys...

The last weeks and especially the last days, lots of things happened in New Babbage.

There is a new villain in town, called the Doctor Obolensky and he is REALLY evil.
First he put Miss Kandace Commons' store on fire, even if he denies the responsability, and then he buys to build his evil projects.
Second, he is also working on a lair perched at the top of a huge mountain lost in the middle of a sea... We went there with Deimos to explore and sadly he saw me and he tried to kill us with his "extruciatingly painful death ray" which he didn't think he would "have to use that early" !!! Luckily he didn't get us, but almost.

Another pledge coming to Babbage recently are the vampires.
First a little blond child, named Ravansky, came to warn the urchins they should be careful because some other vampires would come to "hunt" them down and bite them. Ravansky is himself a vampire, but a well mannered one apparently.
Then, my friend Mandoo arrived at New Babbage too, and got himself mistaken with the villain one by biting Mr Holmes. He promised to ask for permission before biting though and so far he has done so. He bit me before coming to New Babbage but only drank a little of blood and I agreed to give him that blood because he was starving. That little of blood drunk didn't turn me into a vampire and I am now protected against any other vampire's attempt to bit me so it's not that bad.
I have another friend though (on the left on the pic), who doesn't like the vampires AT ALL, and his encounter with Mandoo (on the right on the pic) soon turned into a fight...

Luckily, they finally stopped with no harm for the both of them.

So yes, times are hard in New Babbage, with villains, vampires, maybe soon some Chinese invaders coming from the tunnel Django dug to China, or some aliens coming from that weird stone from the sky on display in a park, and who knows what kind of folks will be drawn by the Circus of the insane Bob is working on... Plus I forget to mention the monster still on loose and looking for the hand Django's grandfather cut off him... And certainly many more I even don't know of.

Ah well, other of those little things, Babbage is a very safe town and newcomers are always welcomed with open arms. Cheers!
