"A family tomb? Should we survive the night, I would very much like to visit it in the morning.
Without waiting for a reaction from the family, Mori turns to the party to discuss plans for the evening."I would recommend that we attempt avoidance of overtly martial solutions on our first engagement. Demons, particularly ones that have been operating for a length of time, can be powerful combatants.Instead, I would advise an attempt to obtain a copy of the contract so that we can investigate the possibility of a contractual amendment or alteration to the terms of the contract that may result in a more agreeable arrangement for the Cabells. It seems unlikely that we'll be able to locate a possible copy of the contract given the size of the manor and the limited time before dusk.Not trying to take control of the game, but it seems like this is as good a chance as any for planning our next steps and how we want to move forward.
This contract sets out the terms of a deal made between Richard Cabell, acting in his role as head of the Cabell family, and the Devil known on the material plane as Yeth.
Yeth shall ensure that the residence commonly known as Cabell Manor, located three and a half miles north of Beechburton, remains in possession of the Cabell family, which is defined as a family unit containing the legal heir of Richard Cabell, for as long as it exists.
Yeth shall ensure that the Cabell Family does not lose possession of the house due to financial or legal hardships. These include it being rendered as an unsuitable dwelling due to lack of maintenance or repairs.
While this contract remains in place, any attempt by the Cabell Family to sell or otherwise move out of the Cabell Manor shall be considered a breach of contract.
In return for this service, while Cabell Manor exists as a recognizable dwelling, Yeth is entitled to transport one member of the Cabell Family, as defined above, into the Nine Hells on the date shown on this contract and at an interval of every 100 years from that date. Yeth is considered to be the legal owner of her chosen family member from the moment it is transported into the Nine Hells.
Any breach of this contract shall result in the breaching party having their immortal soul(s) confiscated by Asmodeus, Lord of the Nine Hells.
Yeth is entitled to transport one member of the Cabell Family, as defined above, into the Nine Hells on the date shown on this contract and at an interval of every 100 years from that date.
