Earth Season/Death Week/Godday [[[s02:session-7|Session 7]]]
Temple of Humakt


Morning of Godday. There was serenading in the night. Even though she went to bed before midnight for the first time in days, Varanis looks tired.

Berra comes down to the room before dawn, probably woken by a guard change, and checks to be sure Varanis is awake.

Together they head to the Temple of Humakt

The day at the Temple goes well. Varanis manages to put her worries from her head and bring all her attention to her lessons. The Sword runs her through drill after drill while her feet fly and blade flashes in the sun. When it is time to do so, she meditates on Vinga and Humakt, on Air and Death, on Movement and Separation. She learns the stories of how Yelm found Fire, how Orlanth killed Yelm, and how Humakt made Orlanth bring Yelm back again, but all told from the perspective of Humakt’s faithful. When the day draws to a close, she is exhausted, but hopeful. This was a thing that she could learn.

When she meets Berra at the end of the day, Varanis looks content. “Today was better,” she tells her friend.

They talk of politics and marriage
