Ever since Darren put Dolman into his place, the dwarf has been scheming to regain control of his organization. After Randall put himself into debt with some of Dolman’s connections, the dwarf has been emboldened. With each passing day, Dolman pushes himself closer to wrestling control away from Randall. However, after coming to terms with Randall, Darren agrees to remind Dolman about the chain of command. Will Dolman accept his reprimand? Or will he strike a deal with Darren and step back into leadership?

The lithe figure closed the distance and whispered, “I’m Randall’s top lieutenant.” He pressed his index finger into Dolman’s forehead and pushed, “You’re one of the vast and useless minions.”
