Ad #5 The Offices of Faustiaun D'Azoral- Warlock at Law
1: When I was young, I foolishly made a bargain with a witch to trade my firstborn child for a pair of magic shoes. But when I finally had a kid, it turned out that I really liked him! So I called at the offices of Faustiaun D'Azoral, Warlock at Law, and he convinced the Witch that Firstborn child, in our verbal agreement, meant the first child I had ever held, and I promptly handed over my younger brother instead of my son. It was a win win!
2: When my brother traded me to a witch for a pair of magic shoes, I hired D'Azoral, Warlock at law, and he proved that only a person's actual parents can trade then for magic shoes, and the contract for my immortal soul was null and void. He even got me damages for emotional distress!
D'Azoral: Have you been accused of a crime? Were you injured in a dangerous magical experiment? Did you enter into an unwise contract with a being beyond your comprehension? I Faustiaun D'Azoral, Warlock at Law, will put my many years of experience negotiating and surviving contracts for power and personal gain with demons from the very pits of hell, to work for you. With crimes and contracts, it's easy to feel like you're in over your head, but whatever hedge witch or magistrate you've gotten on the wrong side of is nothing compared to Dread Mephitstelzeebub, lord of the under realms, king of pain, the end of all hope and life! (ahem) And if I can handle him, then I can help you. If you're in trouble with the mundane or magical laws of the land, come and see me, Faustiaun D'Azoral Warlock at law today! I'm sure we can make a deal!
