    After a few more minutes of lobbing psionic death beams at the sleeping monster, Neit suddenly got to her feet and wrestled the cramp out of her hand.

    "Got an' idea, hun. Please keepe, erm... Killin' 'im."

    A dark blobbish flare later, and the crowish thing had vanished into thin air.

    ***

    It wasn't too hard to find Taldi. Neit already knew which local dive was her favorite; It was the one with the big glowy statue out front which looked kinda like her. Or totally was her, according to Taldi. As luck would have it, she was in there, too.

    "Hey there candycaps!" She wrapped her arms around the roudy woman from behind and kissed her ear, directing interrupting the conversation Talders was already having. "I need 'ur helpe with somethinge. Somethinge bige. Somethinge really really bige. Righte now. Can't waite. You won't be sorry."

    "You gotta bunche loada slaves 'andy? ( ̄~ ̄)"

    "'Ey, shitheads!" Taldi shouted to her prior guests. "Piss off, I've gots a big importan' c'rintri lady and anythin' she says is prolly mo' 'portant than your dumb shit." Taldi smiled and turned to face Neit, this time wearing little more than a boob-tube and a tiny skirt. "Haelo." She smiled at Neit. "Can I give Jabress Inthuul a kiss? Or no fraterizinging with th' shebali in public?" She teased before pulling Neit into a deep kiss. "So whassup? What's all this 'bout needin' slaveses?"

    Neit made sure to hold the sides of Taldi's face to make it look like she was in control of the kissing, but the cute-dumpy slaver was totally doing all of the work.

    A straight minute of gibbering later, it took a firm pinch to the earlobe to finally get the roudy thing under control.

    "Looke. It's a dragone. Killed ite, we dide. Gotta a whole damn pile 'a dragon chunks!" She pulled herself closer so that she could whisper in the opposite ear. Her other hand grabbed grabbed a bum bump, but that was just for fun. "You got some tough ol' man-boys for tha' liftin', don't ya? Of course you do! Taldi's the boss of these things, that's what they say!... We gotta be quick, through, ya se, sweetbits... You wante in or duncha?..."

    Took some liberties with Neit to keep things moving and did what seemed in character. I imagine she knows how and when to shut up Taldi. If there's an issue, Reg, let me know.

    Taldi pushed Neit away, gently, laughing and giggling. "Ahahaha, good one, Neit." More laughter before she was able to parse the look on Neit's face, sobering up herself. "Lolth's tits, you serious? Like, fo' reals? I mean, you sures its not just a really funny lookin' Deep Crow or a big lizard? 'Cause this one time-" Neit silenced Taldi with a kiss and gave her some reassurances that, yes, it was a Dragon and not a very strange and featherless Deep Crow. Did they even *have* Deep Crow in Avernus? Whatever.

    "Fuck yaes I want in!" Taldi lit up. "Wants somethin' fo' it, tho'. Not doin' this just 'cause you gorgeous and good kisser." She smiled. "I'd look suitably badass in a dragonscale cloak, no?" Neit got the hint.

    ***

    Taldi and a quartet of her own Trolls quickly helped Ryyna's Troll move the Dragon's corpse back to the surface. Well, the slaves did. Taldi mostly just barked orders at them, went on about how cool Dragons are, and how badass she'll look in her new cloak.

    Once the Dragon was topside, Taldi gave Neit a passionate kiss and quickly scribbled down the name of the fancy inn she was currently staying at, noting that she expected her cloak sooner rather than later. Naturally, by the rules of Drow social interaction, everyone knew there was an unspoken "or else" in there.

    Okay, so, time to decide what you want to do with the corpse. It's a Huge creature, so you can make...
    From the hide and scales...
    SPOILER! :
    3 suits of armor, which count as Leather, Hide, or Scalemail armor. Dragonhide Armor is identical to whichever of those things you use, except for the following benefits:
    Always Masterwork
    +3 Armor Bonus
    -2 Armor Penalty
    Hardness 10
    Resistance 5 to Fire. This resistance is an extraordinary feature and thus nonmagical, but does not stack with other resistances.
    The cost for Dragonleather armor is 3000GP plus the cost of the base armor. For the Dragonhide or Dragonscale armors it is 3500GP plus the cost of the base armor.
    Instead of a suit of armor, you can make a Dragonhide Cloak. A Dragonhide Cloak is a magic item, so it counts as your magic cloak, and grants a +2 Armor Bonus and a extraordinary Resistance 5 to Fire. Doesn't stack with other things. You owe Taldi one of these.
    Costs 1500GP to make.

    From the Claws and Teeth...
    SPOILER! :
    Each claw from the limbs or tooth from the mouth can be used to make a Dragonfang Weapon. A Dragon's hands/paws have four digits, each, so that's eight. If you don't intend to keep the head as a trophy, there are enough large teeth to bring the count up to 12. I say keep it as a trophy though. Badass.
    You can make just about any slashing or piercing weapon out of the stuf. Each weapon is identical to its normal type except for the following benefits:
    Always Masterwork
    Hardness 10
    Immune to Fire - the weapon, not you. So it can't burn or melt.
    +1 Fire Damage on every hit with it.
    The cost for a Dragonfang or Dragonclaw weapon is 300gp plus the cost of the base weapon.


    If you don't make anything out of the Dragon's hide or bones, you can sell the corpse for 72900GP assuming you still keep the head and honor your debt to Taldi. Assuming you sell the head, as well, that's an additional 1200GP.

    As for the blood, DnD doesnot specify on how much blood is in a Dragon, really, which is odd since it does specify how much you need to make some alchemical stuff. Let's assume he has enough blood to make any of the following...
    1 Greater Dragon's Blood Elixir (200 GP)
    2 Major Dragon's Blood Elixir (150 GP)
    4 Moderate Dragon's Blood Elixirs (100 GP)
    8 Minor Dragon's Blood Elixirs (50 GP)
    Fucked up the costs. Each elixir just costs labor time.
    If you don't make anything and just sell the blood, it's worth 4000GP but does also incur a 50GP labor fee of having someone exsanguinate it.
    Here are the stats for Dragon's Blood Elixirs. They increase arcane caster level, so Alsiif can benefit. Of cours ethey are highly addictive and have side-effects. Of course when has addictiveness ever stopped Drow?
    SPOILER! :

    The DC is for the fort save to avoid addiction. The 'addictiveness' refers to how severe the withdrawal effects are and how long, once addicted, you can go between drinking more.
    You can, in fact, die from taking too much. At 0 or less Wisdom they knock you into a coma until you get back to at least 1 Wis. At -X where X is your Wisdom modifier, you are dead. Remember, though, that potions of Cure Disease can cure you of addictions.
    All the effects of a Dragon's Blood Elixir, positive or negative, last an hour unless otherwise noted.
    DRAGON'S BLOOD ELIXIR, MINOR (DC15, Low Addictiveness)
    Primary Effects: Increases Caster level by 1d4.
    Side Effects: 25% chance of reducing Wisdom by 1d4. DC15 Fort Save negates.

    DRAGON'S BLOOD ELIXIR, MODERATE (DC20, Moderate Addictiveness)
    Primary Effects: Increases Caster level by 1d6.
    Side Effects: 50% chance of reducing Wisdom by 1d6. DC20 Fort Save negates.

    DRAGON'S BLOOD ELIXIR, MAJOR (DC25, High Addictiveness)
    Primary Effects: Increases Caster level by 1d8.
    Side Effects: 50% chance of reducing Wisdom by 1d8. DC25 Fort Save halves.

    DRAGON'S BLOOD ELIXIR, GREATER (DC30, Extreme Addictiveness)
    Primary Effects: Increases Caster level by 1d8. Increases Intelligence by 1d4.
    Side Effects: 50% chance of reducing Wisdom by 1d8. DC30 Fort Save halves. If Wisdom damage is suffered there is a 25% chance of causing Confusion for 3d10 minutes.

    Lastly, for the skeleton. assuming you don't make any Dragonfang/Dragonclaw stuff, and don't sever the head, you can sell the whole thing for 4200GP as a trophy/decoration.
    Any questions, ask.

    Also, don't forget you also need to pay to have your items identified, which can then be sold if you don't intend to use them, and also you have rewards coming from Zymyyra when you visit her to let her know the Dragon is dead. Although you may want proof.

    EDIT: Fixed costs of Dragon's Blood Elixirs.
    EDIT 2: Fixed value of just selling all the blood.

    It was an amusing thing, sitting upon a dragon's corpse. It wasn't like they could just shove it under the sofa cushions at the inn room, so Neit had a table set up ontop of it, and as enjoying a three course celebratory meal of roasted bloat beetle with the others. Passing commoners seem to stop and gawp for a moment, probably figuring out for themselves who it originally belonged to, but nobody was dumb enough to stare at or question somebody who'd just killed a fucking red dragon for too long.

    Regardless, a buyer was already arranged and on their way. No point in asking for an ass kicking. The three had agreed to just keep the head as proof/a trophy, give Taldi her cape, and sell the rest, split three ways.

    Oh yeah, and they also agreed to tell everybody that they totally weren't hired or anything, they were just bored. :3

    //////

    Everybody got 24300GP! That's a whole lotta nuts!

    //////

    Having sold the dragon and having time to recoop, now all that was needed to be done was to go and show Zymyyra. Neit demanded that they dimension door into her waiting room, and then her and Alsiif pushed the things' head into her main chamber personally. 'Cause that totally made it look like they had just pulled it off themselves...

    She just kind of ended up dusting her hands off and waving a "ta-da!" motion when they got there through, and that was kinda lame.

    "Good evening, Jabress Zymyyra! You are looking more beautiful every time I see you!"

    Zymyyra seemed pleased, initially, although also a bit skeptical. Rising from her throne, the Jabress carefully inspected Bolgaz's severed head, making sure that it wasn't an Illusion or a clever fake. Once she was satisfied, she returned to her throne, grinning.
    "You did well." She breathed happily, clearly a little surprised that the group got it done so quickly, but also clearly unwilling to, you know, compliment them too much. What was she, some shebali bitch sucking at the teat of her betters?

    "As promised." She nodded her head and one of her slaves handed each of the trio a sack containing 300 platinum coins. "I would love to talk more, but there is much work that I must attend to. My rightful seat awaits, you understand."

    ***

    The revolution, as it were, was short and bloodless. Bloodless in that there was no real fighting in the streets. Zymyyra and her associates stormed the Valsharess' palace, while hired help tended to those minority of houses which had the audacity to not support the Faernsenger. The Mirrym women's remains were proudly displayed on stakes throughout the richer parts of town most posed in sexually humiliating manners with their dead children. As for Cha'ara, the dearly departed Valsharess, well Zymyyra was a Wizard, like most Faernsenger, and for all her intelligence Valsharess Zymyyra was unable to think of a humiliating way to publicly display a fine pile of ash.

    The threat from the church had been effectively neutralized before it materialized, a plot from within deposing the Yathtallar and 'offering' her to the Goddess before she even heard about Zymyyra's move.

    The new Valsharess was a ambitious, beautiful, utterly amoral monster of a woman, as was the Yathtallar. They were different from their predecessors in that... well...

    They had different names, I guess?

    ***

    Zymyyra had kept her word of the bargain, as well, granting the trio a mansion in the heart of the city. It had clearly belonged to a c'rintri woman and her household, of comparable wealth to the trio, and likely that of a Mirrym woman or an aligned house who had either fled or been murdered.

    Of course, the place would need some slaves and a handful of staff on hand to keep it running.

    HOUSE GET. Now what?

    Monthly expenses!
    2000GP each month is needed in tribute to the Valsharess.
    The estate itself will cost 123GP each month in upkeep.
    The two above costs are for the estate itself, and not per player character.

    The estate *requires* 6 cooks and 19 servants.
    The cooks must be free Drow since you wouldn't trust a slave to cook your food like that, and require a monthly wage of 5GP. You may want to be a bit more generous since these are the people responsible for not poisoning you.
    A slave of a Medium Creature costs 3GP a month to feed. Double for Large Creatures (6GP) and half for Small Creatures (1GP). I don't think anyone has any Huge or Tiny Creatures for slaves, but if you do let me know. This is assuming the barest minimum, of course, and is more for household and labor slaves. Sex slaves and soldier slaves cost a bit more to feed per month since you are feeding them a bit better.

    Each player character also will need to allocate 1000GP per month to maintain for herself the acceptable standard of living for a Drow woman of her social standing. This covers food, drugs, booze, and also general social outings like trips to the theater, arena, brothels, and so on.
    As a general note, that 1000GP applies to expenses, too. So any non-magic item under 100GP within reason we can assume the player has access to without having been mentioned. Mostly applies, in this case, to common but reasonably expensive drinks and foods and shit.

    If you want to hire additional guards of your own, rather than trusting that you have no real enemies at the moment and are paying enough for the Valsharess ot make at least a token effort of guarding the place, that will cost extra. Let me know. You could entrust slaves to guard, of course, but then you'd need to hire someone to always be around to keep the slaves in line.

    Weapons, servants, and fancy shit; Neit set about keeping everything (and one) that belonged to her under as tight lock and key as was possible the minute that they opened up the mansion's doors. It was far easier to avoid assassinations by paying to make sure they never left the keep's walls, after all. She could even carry on being a standard Drow megabitch as long as it was more profitable for them to keep her alive.

    And be a ravenous cold-hearted female dog she did. Despite the newfound money and establishment, the first few weeks had her seem much too preoccupied to actually do much with it. Not other than pull the intact skins off of servants who had figured her foolish and docile, anyhow.

    On the fifth night, she just upped and disappeared.

    On the sixth, she slept all day in the living room upon a brass skeletal throne, as if for the first time in weeks, with a familiar four-armed chubby psionic footstool under her heels.

    SPOILER! :

    The one she had let go?...

    A massive grizzly dragon skull above the fireplace made the reunion kind of a bit less heartwarming.

    ***

    Day seven. There were maps sprawled about the table before the ashes of today's ill-cooked breakfast.

    Neitar wanted to move Taldi and her kids in, so they could have some kind of ultra death rave or something, but that fucker mr.practicality meant they probably needed a restaurant or a mine or something to make some cash first.

    "We neede 'a buisnesse." She just said flatly to the others. "And Lolth's tits, is' this junke expensive..."

    "Thinke we needa off'a Grub on a Bun dealer, and take ite over. :/"

    "Don' make ite sound like I'm gonna be the one doin' that servile shebali shit myselfs!" Neit just shrugged loudly and yanked Alsiif's ear. "We need coins, you git..."

    "Lolth's Tits, you gotta get busy making evil-blooded babies, too! 'Cause like a Trog's balls am I moving my little sweatheart Erthe here withe nobody else to assassinate!"

    "..."

    "...Gobos... Those liddl' goblin fucks are all round these parts." Shrugging again, she just lounged back into her oversized cushiony chair, and lit up yet another cigar. Combined with her uber-dark skin, the shade and smoke made her look extra spooky. "Maybe it would be easier to manipulate doze. Make ehm' feel special and goe 'round stealin' hummie junk for us..."

    The thing "hummie junk" brought to Alsiif's mind was literal shit, so she looked kind of weirded out by Neitar's idea. "Ahm.. Well if you think we can make money off of that..."
