"So... what sort of groups were these? I mean, in context I'd kind of assumed that when you say 'cult' you mean it literally, rather than... oh, I don't know, talking about an obsessive fan club for someone..."

And given that whatever she's involved in apparently motivated her to get high even though she was never that way before, I'd imagine at least one uses narcotics of some sort in their religious ceremonies... and might actually be a bit more dangerous than I ought to be poking around in, if Arlene's right about her turning into a bat, and what I'm learning here is relevant to why.

A series of disturbing images passed through his head: images of fictional characters who'd gained magical power through servitude to beings who were morally ambiguous or worse. He saw Ammon Jerro, a warlock from a computer RPG he'd played who'd assembled an army of various fiends and then gotten dragged into damnation by them in one of the expansion campaigns. He saw a few Dungeons and Dragons clerics that his gamer group in college had rolled, especially a human necromancer-cleric of Oghma that he'd played and a drunken ex-convict dwarven cleric of Sun Wukong the group's party animal had created. He saw the toxic shamans from Deadlands: Hell On Earth, who are rewarded with potentially game-breaking magical power in exchange for spreading toxins and radiation. Perhaps most clearly, Darrel saw the chief (human) villain from Doctor Strange, who'd made a pact with a timeless demon of immense power and received a massive power-boost that had visibly disfigured his face.

Darrel wondered if Jess had actually found some sort of real being willing to provide such twisted power. And he vaguely wondered if the next time he saw Jess, she'd have purple, necrotic bruise-burns around her eyes.

I'd better hope magic isn't real. I don't know what I'd do about it if it was.

"But... did she tell you what these groups were all about? Maybe try to get you two to join them?"
