Young Loki is at a severe disadvantage: everyone in Asgard remembers him from his previous life - but they're all strangers to him, and they fully intend to keep it that way. Desperate, Loki conjures up a mystical means of eavesdropping on their private thoughts, but what he learns doesn't make him happy. even worse, the lesson itself may just cost him his life! Then: there's a story bartenders tell about the devil. that at closing time, he chooses a bar and walks in the door. He'll want to talk about his day. If you listen and survive, he'll give you a tip. The story isn't true, but occasionally it amuses Mephisto to play along. And when he's spent the day spying on all the earthly gods and what exactly they're going to do about Fear Itself, you'll want to hear what he has to say.
