: Myth) IS this "Black Company"?
Haven't you read all of the stuff in Legends.
Seriously guys, if anyone else here hasn't, I strongly recommend doing so before asking anymore questions. Unless of course you're just too lazy to read a few pages. It just gets a little tedious answering the same things over and over.
This is not directed at you specifically Doom but just a general recommendation.
