Long story short:
- Was invaded.
- Got poisoned.
- Got angry/overzealous.
- Chased invader back across the bridge with the Helkite Drake (I'd already killed the drake)
- Invader cuddled up to Solaire.
- A pannicky swing of the drake sword pissed Solaire off.
- Booked it back across the bridge to get away from Solaire.
- Resigned myself to death.
- Was not aware that NPC forgiveness was possible through Oswald.
- Figured it wasn't a good idea to leave an aggro NPC hanging around, so went back and tearfully put Solaire out of his misery.
I guess I got some okay gear from Solaire, but how fucked am I?
