Moralius said that he allowed me to go and see what I had inherited, the rest of the party agreed with him.
Well, the town was nearby, so it wouldn't hurt to stop there along the way, I thought, and it was important to handle all family matters while it was still possible. Evilus might have had some... questionable moralities, but he was still my uncle, I can't hate what little family I had left.
Once we arrived to the castle, we found out that I wasn't the only family member there to claim the heritage. My cousin, Blackmailus, had also arrived, to claim his share.
I shared a loving, one-sided greeting with my cousin, who I hadn't seen for years, and he told me he wanted to claim everything in the mansion. Once the paladins brought my uncle's will, Blackmailus and I read it.
-LAST MAN STANDING GETS IT ALL-
-Signed, Evilus Maximus Assholius
Shocked as I was, I could see from the handwriting and the seal that the will was not a fake. It was the real deal.
After reading the piece of paper, Blackmailus laughed and challenged me to a duel. While my party member were celebrating for an easy win, I had trouble thinking if this was right.
Moralius tried to convince me that the duel was honourable and the other paladins of the castle approved of it, to which I eventually agreed on.
The rules of the duel were simple, we were to fight unarmed and the first to gives up or faints, loses. The duel began and I managed to beat up my dear cousin pretty badly, I made sure to apologize for each punch.
After a few more hits, Blackmailus drew a spiked club he was hiding. I was surprised and took a few heavy hits, but I was still standing. I got angry and started wrestling him, trying to stop him from moving.
Behind me, without me knowing, Brutalix had started flexing and looking at my cousin in order to intimidate him and Moralius whispered a curse on Blackmailus to weaken him more.
Soon after I managed headbutt my cousin to submission.
