the smuggler’s bible


Four consecutive tenants say there’s a ghost in the house. Normally, this wouldn’t rate even in the top five of Murchad’s problems, but since they (all four!) not only say this thing, but also depart in haste and total breach of contract the property is beginning to get a reputation. He grabs his things and heads out to tackle the issue personally.

On the sagging porch, Murchad rolls his shirt sleeves and pulls the zipper on his exorcism bag. It is strikingly similar to any good property manager’s normal eviction bag, but the nails spiking the baseball bat are silver.
