Dramatis Personae




Kalis, High Priestess of Ernalda
Carasai the beleagured headman
Javan, wise wife of Carasai
Some children and an exploded frog
An unknown shaman – Kolati?


Lenta was in Boldhome and spending time at the Earth Temple. While there, High Priestess Kalis came to visit with her and suggested that Lenta’s help was needed to rein Varanis. Varanis was “helping” again. Conveniently for the young Ernaldan, Irillo was in the area. He agreed to travel with her, as he had a lot of stuff to haul and animals to herd and was going the right direction (and grumbling a lot, because he really doesn’t deal in these kinds of goods). 

In the Greyrock lands, especially around the village of Greyrock Fall, Varanis was helping Carasai the Red. The Orlanthi was politely putting up with the over-eager outsider, but it was getting to the point where he was trying to avoid her. She was constantly underfoot. 

Suuraki was trading secrets with the local hunters, with his wife Valseena listening and learning. 

Maalira was being a visiting White Lady, interacting with and helping the villagers as best she could without stepping on toes. She noticed that malnutrition was a growing problem in the fringes of the settlement and asked Varanis to help her talk to Javan, the headman’s wife. Javan suggested that they could try an Eirithan Heroquest to improve some of the lands for grazing herds.

Running with the Ernaldan’s suggestion, Varanis approached Valseena and Suuraki to ask if they would be willing to help, as they would need to be at the heart of the quest. They were hesitant, especially Valseena, who was still angry with Varanis and Berra. Eventually, they agreed to discuss it. Without Varanis present.

Irillo and Lenta stopped at Grey Rock Cave to chat with the locals a bit. People were friendly and there were no immediate causes for concern and no one in need of urgent help. Irillo did a bit of trading and was pleased. 

In Greyrock Fall, Maalira helped look after little children with varying complaints (falling out of trees, imaginary bites, and exploded frogs). She attended a frog funeral and broke up a brawl.

Valseena and Suuraki met with a Kolati shaman (? I think?) who helpfully suggested that it would probably be fine for them to do the ritual. They agreed and went to tell Javan, making sure that she understood that neither of them are priests yet.

Irillo reported to Varanis and she suggested that they should hand all of the stuff he’d transported for her to Carasai and let him work out what to do with it all. The merchant winced, but deals were made and people’s needs met for a time. Everybody helped!
