FOR VOW AND CODE
You realize what this means?
It’s strange...it’s looks nothing
like the real prophecy.
Oh, it’s doesn't?
Hey, listen, we didn’t mean to
badmouth this prophecy. It’s-It’s
probably really great. Because
obviously, I can’t, you know, just,
No, no. It’s different from the
true prophecy. This can’t be real.
By all means, go ahead and look for
wisdom nailed to the wall of a pisspoor
public house in the middle of
Piss off! I live here!
What’s It to you? I’m just passing
through and was curious
about...local customs and whatnot.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
No, nothing at all!
You think you’re The One?
What if I do?!
Well, then we are honored! And I
would like to buy you a drink!
Hey! Keep your money, I’m just
interested in the Prophecy.
Awww, thats too bad. I’ve been from
one side of this world to the other
and everybody who tries to tell me
about prophecies has been a
“But, this one will surely be the
Look friend, we aren’t looking for
trouble. We’re just here because It
got dark and...
You ever seen that guy before?
Not that I can remember.
He acts like a Vigile.
I think he is one...I think they
all are. They all have the rings.
Can’t really say if these were the
ones I met before. They all dress
in black, and have the same
attitude problem. It’s hard to tell
See, this is why all that ‘Vigiles
code’ stuff is horse shit. Who are
we doing It for? That kid? Her?
Gary, the million-year-old Vigile??
Nobody cares. I’m not keeping to
some arbitrary set of rules just so
some asshole with power can feel
like a good person.
Here, let’s get him up.
One, two, three...
Oh, looks like he’s waking up.
What’s that, Gary?
“Oi, ‘ello everybody! I’m some
dodgy relic from thousands of years
ago. Shadow Run is very exciting
and not at all a boring place full
of mud and piss.”
Well, Gary, like this piss pot of a
town, I’d say you’re full of shit!
Have a seat, old man!
That doesn’t sound like the Gary I
Nobody should be treated like that.
They look like they’ve been
drinking a while.
DRUNK VIGILE #1 (O.S.)
Conrad, you’re a riot!
I like that they’re buying
stuff...but I don’t like them
saying mean things about Shadow
Run. I live here. So does Gary. Oh
but they just love screwing with
him cause he’s retired, although
Gary would never admit It. Honor
among Vigiles my ass.
You want us to kick ‘em out?
How’s that gonna work?
You just leave that to us.
Us? Your friend here? Listen...uh,
uh ... What was your name?
Sure... why not? Ora, no offense,
but the Vigiles’ entire existence
is traveling around and killing or
kidnapping people and sometimes
How do you know that’s not what I
I don’t. But, I’m damn sure that’s
not what your friend here does.
Ooooh, a kitty! Hey, kitty. Come
Ouch! Oh! Get away. What the hell?
Even cats are mean here.
Yeah, watch out for Lexi, she’s a
mean one she’ll just...
He can handle himself. I’ve been
training him. Right, Kev?
I can handle Conrad and the others
are probably drunk enough where you
won’t be in any real danger.
Look, I’d consider myself ‘in
training’ still. I am not ready for
You’re as ready as you need to be.
I really don’t think we need to do
this. We have a lead on where
Godrick’s aunt is. We’ve got a new
prophecy which, you know, is fun.
Why go looking for trouble?
Hm. You’re right.
See? Look, we got what we needed.
You’re not ready. I’ll do It
Vorlauf. Sir. Please come join us
for a drink.
Have you forgotten the code? A
Vigile protects those who need
protection. We defend this realm.
We do not gallivant. We are not
beasts. We provide a service.
All due respect Vorlauf, but we’re
mercenaries. We keep things the way
they are -- usually with violence --
Wait, is that true?
Absolutely not. If you weren’t prevows,
I’d make this man your first
test of might.
Conrad here is a special kind of
Vigile... the kind with one hand
Nice to see you too Ann, you going
to take It from me? I’m sure you’d
put It to good use.
Conrad, what about me? You leave
our group and you don’t even say
hello to me? That hurts... hurts me
where I live...
....Nope...don’t think I know
Thats exactly what I said to you
Listen, Vorlauf. You need to ease
up a bit. I mean, take a look
around. Do you really care so much
about these people? So much that
you’d regularly risk life and limb
for a code? A code that does
NOTHING to protect you. Don’t
pretend like you’re not in this for
the same reasons the rest of us
I chose this life because I believe
in the code. Somebody needs to
...your ability to make a bunch of
money. Yes, I agree. We all agree
the code of ‘I need money to live
so I’m going to make a lot of it’
Glad we could defuse this. You
really seemed upset when you walked
Sir, if It helps, I believe you.
Oh yes. I used to as well...then I
It’s funny how the people who claim
to be smart never show It.
This - this is why people feel the
way they do about Vigiles. This
selfish attitude. It’s disgusting.
Pssst. Hey. Ori. Wa ha, ha. You
been starin’ at that guy quite
intensely It seems like.
Right? Ora, that guy looks like
he’s pissed. What are you doing?
What? Oh... think I’ve seen that
guy. I mean I know his voice.
I’m... I’m just trying to see his
face...It’s just weird because I’ve
never been to Shadow Run before.
It’s not that surprising. And
seeing his face may not be that
helpful. People call Shadow Run
“The Bog Of Faces”. It’s because
people here tend to be incredibly
forgettable. Take me for instance.
Go ahead. Take this in.
See? What stands out about what
I’ve got going on here? Nothing.
Just another muscle-bound, one-eyed
Gnome missing half his teeth...
Just another face from the bog.
You’ll forget you ever met me as
soon as you meet someone else.
What does that have to do with that
It means he’s probably not from
You know, I’ve kinda come around on
you, barkeep. You’re alright.
The bartender shrugs.
That’s nice of you to say. You
gonna stick around the ol’ Bog of
Faces a while?
Oh no... No no no no.
You’ve broken the code more times
than I can count. And that’s just
since I got here!
Time to settle the bill, Conrad.
I’m not going anywhere. I haven’t
finished my drink.
For Vow and Code!
FOR VOW AND CODE!! (Laughs)
See...it’s you, your two idiots and
your wet-behind-the-ears, idealist
Pre, who, according to the “code,”
ain’t allowed to do anything to
...vs. a table of veterans who
understand how the world works.
That little one over there? She saw
the prophecy on the wall and she
seemed to think that she was having
a bloody revelation. Think about
that. She saw something on the wall
of the Lord’s Throne and thought...
“Of course! The truth! I understand
Tell me again why we’re supposed to
protect people like that from
Magic, instead of locking them up
someplace dark and damp so nobody
else gets crazy all over them?
What’s more dangerous? Magic or
I’m far more concerned about the
danger of having a pile of garbage
like you wondering the countryside
and giving the Vigiles a poor
That’s... That’s him. He’s the one.
I don’t like the way he’s looking
I think maybe we should go.
Did that girl over there say where
she was from?
Ask her yourself. You’re the man of
the people, after all...
Found your voice, have you, Pre?
You’re following a nearly extinct
breed, might be the last of his
kind...although he would like you
think that we are the minority.
Your ‘ethical’ sponsor here thinks
he should take us in and reprimand
us. Little slap on the wrist for
not checking every bullshit
bureaucratic box when we do our
jobs. Remember, It does not matter
what I do... the code says, a pre
can’t draw his sword. So you’re
gonna help him to slap my wrists??
Actually, I’m his sponsor.
Ho ho! S’that so? So you’re here as
a bodyguard and a baby sitter?
And pest controller.
So you’re here to fulfill your
That’s right. One way or the other,
I won’t allow you to continue
sullying the code I’ve dedicated my
Then. Make. Me.
HA, my turn!
Not So fast! Sleep tight friend.
Watch yourself Vorlauf.
Bloody Pre bastard!!
You’re mine, you piss poor...
DRUNK VIGILE #2
Take that, ya’ plague Sore!
Not smart, friend.
Thats my cue.
Wait! Where are you going?! This is
PLEASE LEAVE AND PAY YOUR TABS WHEN
YOU’RE FINISHED. THANK YOU FOR
COMING TO LORD’S THRONE.
Ora! Let’s go!
This is my chance. I can avenge
Godrick? There’s too many of them!
Come on. Let’s go!
I’m going in!
You! Stop right there!
As It was always going to end.
I could use!!!....I could use a bit
of help here!
On your left!
Care to dance?
If you’re not too busy...!
Now to your rest, however
Now, as to the girl...
Wait, wait hold up.
What?! Come on, you were right. We
No...come on. Seriously. I’m so out
Why did you mention Godrick back
That was him! That was the man who
came with that crew of Vigiles and
murdered Godrick’s parents.
I froze. I froze! I can’t - I can’t
believe I froze! And.. And then
there’s that second prophecy!
So the thing on the wall really was
Yes! Another Prophecy! I couldn’t
read It all - people kept talking
and then they came in - but... but
if there’s a different
what an idiot I am.
Hey, come on! Don’t talk like that.
I was so, so sure that Godrick was
the Chosen One and now I...I don’t
even know if that Chosen One thing
is real or not. I mean, how do I
know if anything is real?
Alright that is a good point.
I’ve got to go back.
Don’t you get It? I have to read
the rest of It, memorize It!
There are people back there missing
hands...dead people...people who
have literally tried to kill you!
Look, Maybe... Maybe this will
Kevin! Did you...? Is that...?
I grabbed It off the wall during
Kevin I... I can’t believe you!!
You...Oh, you’re amazing!!
It’s no big deal, I’m just good in
a crisis, I guess.
Oughf! Hey!...what was that for?
And you weren’t going to show It to
Oughf. No, I...
...And you were just going to what?
Never let me see It?!
If I wasn’t about to go running
back in there, would you, would you
have just thrown It away or
I was just thinking It would be
better to show It to you when we
weren’t standing in the middle of
Hummm... Alright... I MIGHT believe
you. Thank you. This is really
Don’t mention It?
Hey, you forgot your sword...and
Keep It!!! Just keep It!
Meh, Hey Linus, I got you a new
sword! And a new finger!
Well...You’re right, we’ve got to
get off the street.
Gary said that the lady lives at
the back end of town...and since
the gate was over that way...I’m...
I’m guessing we want to go this
I guess that makes sense.
Those of you that can still draw
breath, get out! You are not on my
summons. But remember what happened
here! For a Vigile, the code is not
a choice! However, the ring on your
finger is... and we are more then
happy to relieve you of It.
That went well ha ha... Right?
Shut up, Hal.
It was incredible! I only wish that
I could have helped more.
Eh, if you had done any more It
would have ended very badly for
you, Code-wise. Ya’ did good.
That Code... I think It causes
Vorlauf more problems then It
Really? I don’t think thats true.
This from the guy who turned in his
No no no no, but that was part of
Liked your town and wanted to
protect It did you? Then why aren’t
you still there?!
I did the right thing.
Let me tell you something: if you
had even thought about drawing your
pissy little sword on one of these
poor excuses for a Goat turd,
Vorlauf would have turned you into
the Bank himself! Now... You still
love the precious Code?!
Hey! What?! You can’t talk to me...
Stop! First of all, he could skin
you standing up even if you did
fight back. Second, it’s not about
you. Conrad used to travel with us.
Conrad was one of Hal’s friends
before Hal joined up. But when Hal
tried to get him in, Vorlauf
thought It was a bad idea. Conrad
was always exactly like you saw him
tonight...a complete self-serving
Goblin. And Vorlauf sponsored him.
To stop Hal from doing It. Hal
isn’t exactly a push over. Conrad
was going to be someone’s
apprentice one way or another and
Vorlauf knew It. He also knew It
would likely end like this.
I don’t understand.
If an apprentice commits a crime,
the sponsor is held accountable.
Unless... the sponsor can capture
the apprentice themselves and turn
them in. Vorlauf knew Hal would
never turn in his friend, even if
It meant losing a hand. So, Vorlauf
became Conrad’s sponsor; he was
responsible for him...
But why couldn’t Hal do It?
Because Hal is loyal to a fault. He
never would have hunted down his
“friend” for breaking the Code.
No, he would have lost his own hand
instead of turning in a deadbeat
criminal disguised as a protector.
Conrad was always on that path.
Enough, it’s done. I need you to
keep watch, Pre. The head watchman
should have been ‘round by now. If
he’s not here by morning we will go
look for him.
Ann, where’s Hal?
I don't know, I thought he was
I’ll find him.
I’ll be back out in a bit to
Who are we waiting for?
Don't worry about It, just let us
know if anyone’s coming.
How should I let you know?
Just...yell. Or come inside.
If it’s so easy to get screwed over
by an Apprentice, why did you take
If you for one second think that
you’ve impressed someone with your
fighting skills you can forget that
right now. I took you on because
you’re the perfect apprentice.
You’re a coward. You’re so scared
of what other people think of the
law that you would never desert.
And Linus, I’m not Hal. I would
have no problem hunting you down
and turning you in. Better still, I
might just cut off both your hands
and leave you to bleed to death.
And that’s why I took you
on...because you are the perfect,
Prove me wrong.
Ugh, even with the full moon I
can’t see what this says.
Look! On the door of that cottage.
What do you mean ‘where?’ We
haven’t passed another building in
what feels like an hour. Look up!
Sorry, I was... I was trying to
Look on the door. Isn’t that the
same seal that’s on the amulet?
Shhhhhh! Shhhh, shhhhh.
Looks like It to me.
Sooo... should we knock?
Maybe... or maybe we should just go
home. I mean, if that guy
recognized me we’re all dead. Why
risk this poor woman’s life, too?
But we came this far! Why not at
least see if this lady is actually
Who are you?
Aaaaah! I’m... I’m blind!!
The light! I -I can’t see!
Shut up and tell me what you
