Start to laugh, completely shocked by this outcome.

"You're smarter than I gave you credit for. Tell me, what would you do with dominion over Mighton?"

Lean forward, and pay attention to him, sensing for any fear that might indicate he's lying.

"...I'd make sure everyone lived their lives as normally as possible. So they wouldn't have to know that their queen is a demon...so they wouldn't have to know their efforts were in vein. I want them to live in ignorance of what's really happening...I want them to believe everything's normal." The Hammer stands, the jeering of his friends growing louder.

"When foreigners start coming in and people start practising magic freely, it's going to be quite hard to hide it. However, if I make you Duke, and you do everything you can to keep the people happy despite the change, will that be enough for you? As for these men, I'm not that kind of demon. I don't really have anything that can slightly alter memories like that. Will you sacrifice their lives for the good of everyone else? It's not like they're not going to be your friends after this regardless."

The Hammer looks upon his old friends, distantly.

"...It's a deal, then," he says, rushing forward with his hammer.

Needless to say, it was a thrilling scene of bloodshed and betrayal. Quite impressive for a mortal. And the shouting's finally stopped! It's maddeningly silent in here now!

The Hammer stands tall.

Sit back in my chair, and applaud.

"You know, I wasn't actually telling you to do it yourself, but I'm impressed! At first I didn't think you were serious."

Look at the bodies.

"When they heard that I had become queen, they lost it, and planned to raze the city to the ground so that I couldn't have it. You've just saved everyone's lives."

"...What form will your infernal blessing take, then?" asks the Hammer, blood still dripping off the business end of his weapon. "A magic spell? Some diabolic artifact? Shapeshifting minions?"

"For a man of your position, this is difficult. All my more powerful options will either drastically change your appearance so that it's obvious something's going on, or will drastically change your behaviour and potentially send you totally out of control if I'm not there. I mean, if I made you a demon, you probably wouldn't care much about protecting your friends and family anymore. If we scale it back a bit, how would you like to be young again? Maybe your wife, too. I can have you equipped in the finest magical weapons and armour, with a stronger, younger body, and all your combat experience."

"...A man with my experience, and about 20 years younger? That is a man that I would not want to fight," says the Hammer. "...Very well. If that is what you can offer, then I will take it."

There's knocking on the door. "WHAT'S GOING ON IN THERE? IS EVERYONE ALRIGHT!?"

Whisper to him.

"So, we were attempting to negotiate, and they decided the only option was to raze the city. You argued, and they tried to kill us both. They were madmen. The men are much more likely to believe you than me."

Make the walls disappear, and stand behind him, my weapons hidden.

The Hammer goes to the door, opening it up.

"...Something horrible has happened. The others, they heard the news, and they wanted to raze the city. I had no choice...they were mad..."

The guy standing outside becomes traumatized upon seeing the mess inside. He isn't sure how to act, but he stutters out the words that seal his doom.

"...I'M TELLING THE OTHERS! YOU'RE A MURDERER!"

The Hammer strikes him down with one blow, and drags him into the room, finishing the job in a gruesomely final fashion.

"...It's all for naught," says the Hammer. "...The militia is disbanded."

"Well, are there any guards close enough to have heard him shout? If they didn't, we can try again. That guy was probably just traumatised from seeing the bodies."

"...No, nobody else...shouldn't be..." The Hammer looks ever distant. "...I'll tell the others. You...go somewhere else, I can hardly stand to look at you longer."

"Tell whatever lie you have to to get them on your side, just make sure you don't leave any evidence proving it wrong."

Turn invisible, and leave the city quietly. Once I get out of sight, fly to the westernmost border, trying to find a town with an unusual amount of activity.

You soar across the sky, the citizens below unaware of the demon in their own backyards. You come across a township nearing the border, with a number of people milling about. You can see quite a few travelers are heading on the road westward, which is out of the country and into the neighboring country of Gerund. Certainly fortuitous of a pending mass exodus.

"...It seems I can't wait for McReedy to send men here."

Land, and take my human form, changing my false cloak into royal robes, and putting some effort into making sure I look fit for royalty. Conceal Odium, and slowly approach the town from the western border, doing my best to look peaceful, while remembering nobody's likely to recognise me without my cloak.
