Not surprising, wife and I attended the Thursday night showing of F8 of the Furious. Obvious spoiler alert warning is obvious.
Fun fact: I have an independently owned local theatre that does fun little things, like a one night showing of the 2001 The Fast and the Furious. While not new, it was fun to see a favorite movie on the big(ish) screen again.
Recently attended a showing of the 2017 Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. The following are my thoughts on the movie
The induction of the Meena Ascendant into the Lunar Order of the Anunnaki, including the confession of the Ascendant and a recitation of the history of the the Hidden Masters and Greater Mysteries

So the PCs need the help of the ruler/s do they? It makes a big difference depending on what kind of rulers they are appealing to. What works well in one case may not work well in another.
This nocturnal creature resembles an over-sized bat, with the mouth of a star-nosed mole.
The Manabat can be as small as a normal bat, but can grow to a size larger than a human.
This creature is feared by wizards and other magic users, as it feeds of it victim's mana.
It will hide at day and hunt at night, swooping down on its prey, engulfing the magic user's face with its slimy tentacles, thereby sucking the mana from the victim. Depending on the size of the Manabat it can drain only a portion of the wizard's mana, which he will regain in a few hours, whereas the largest creatures will drain the wizard's mana permanently, rendering them ineffective as magic users.It will not harm them in any other way.
Manabats behave like normal bats and breeds in same way and numbers.
They can be tamed by a master trainer to attack on command.
