Events

Lenta wrote a letter to her family telling that she had been resurrected by a White Lady Mellia of Saiciae and there was an agreement that the customary gifts would be delivered to the shrine at the Blue Tree. Oh, and Irillo would have a copy of this letter in case one she sent would go missing.1In name of blessed Imarja, Ernalda Allmother and Issaries the Harmonious, to all these present letters seeing or hearing greetings and blessings from wellborn Lenta of House Hulta, famous in Nochet, Queen of Cities.

Know ye, by Grace of blessed Chalana Arroy and her meek servant lady Mellia of House Saiciae I was brought back from that silent road to Ty Kora Teks house we all must one day thread and for this I owe her not only my undying gratitude but also such gifts as are worth a Noblewomans life. (By custom 50 wheels or more.) As Healer of blessed Chalana Arroy her Excellency has wished such gifts and donations to be bestowed on Chalana Arroy’s shrine at Blue Tree, to which I have agreed to.

I will make arrangements for this to happen as expediently as possible.

Quite conscious of insecurity of our mortal life in this world I ask and beseech my good family, that  Should it happen that I meet my demise before I have done this and fail to fulfil this obligation, they will correct my failing so that no blemish will fall on our good family name, using the income of lands in Monros I had the grace to enjoy or in other ways our esteemed Grandmother deems wise. I have asked the Irillo of house Saiciae to keep a tally of how this obligation I have taken on myself and he has graciously agreed. Of this clay roll I have made two copies, of one piece of clay, one I will send to the esteemed Grandmother of Our House and one to safekeeping of the said Irillo Saiciae and to both I have rolled my seal. Lenta daughter of Nerestina of house Hulta.

The party received three messages from Prax. One illegible, one from Rajar (so, mostly illegible), and one from Serala (so, lovingly illegible). Berra tried to read the back of hers.

Varanis met with Chief Kulharl to discuss Chaos and stormed off after he shamed her.

The party went to visit with the trolls because Mellia wanted to ask them about the blockage. Three trolls accompanied them when they left to go visit the nearby Humakti Temple, King’s Tower.

At the Humakti Temple, the trolls were introduced and deals made about worship in exchange for service. Three Humakti (Gelvin, Kofer, and Bleujen) were brought on to join the party as scouts.

A preliminary scouting mission confirmed that yes, there was still Chaos in the area around the Six Sisters, including a dragonsnail.

As the party was in poor shape and Berra needed to be back in Boldhome to lead worship for Eril, they agreed to regroup in six days while people prepared as best they could.

“Three messages arrive. One was presumably dropped in a river as it is presumably incoherent.” – GM
“Berra is looking at the wrong side of the parchment.” – Berra

“Just to be clear, you, someone full of Air, are going to speak calmly and collectedly with someone full of Air.” – Irillo
“She didn’t say the calm bit.” – Berra
“Should she have?” Lenta

“There is always a solution that does not involve giving horses away.” – Kulharl

“Always another way,” Berra murmurs.

“I heard that as goatee-like tracks not goaty-like… my mental images are not cooperating tonight!” – Maalira

“Berra’s looking like she wants to give a report.” – Berra

*makes broo faces* – Irillo

“Why are you not out there dealing with it?” – Kulharl”
“We must not forget the other Dragon Snail!” – sarcastic Kulharl.

“Berra doesn’t have to hate Chaos.” – Berra

“My Darkspeech is limited to titles, greetings, and ‘please pass the mushrooms’.” – Mellia

“If you want, I could ask around for volunteers…” – Lenta
“The last time you did that, you got two-hundred bloody warriors!” – Berra

So nobody gets to hear Irillo mutter, “I know a place that sells mule-burgers.” – Irillo

“… I should have made you make a Scan roll before I said that. Make a Scan roll…” – GM
“Oooh! Failed again!” – Maalira

“Lenta would need glasses I have decided.” – Lenta
“Big green eyes.” – Berra
“Myopia.” – Berra

“We come in by day, and talk to Kozakang.” – Berra
“Reception area: Literally ‘Food preparation area.'” – Irillo
“I should just feed them Manasa.” – Varanis

“You return. Bring food?” – Kozakang
“We bring news.” – Mellia

“First, the sweet.” – Mella
“Food?” – Kozakang

“Close up troll breath!” – Varanis
rolls intimidate – Berra

smutty talk – group
“Just remember, I was in California.” – Mellia

“Varanis has another nightmare. Quietly.” – Varanis

“Anyone doing anything overnight? Start a war? Diplomatic incident?” – GM
“Lenta, over to you.” – Berra

“Berra’s taking her bison, and thus has all her weapons.” – Berra
“ALL of them.” – Berra

“Lenta is looking at a small woodchopping axe and a big knife.” – Lenta

“Berra has her bow ready, her javelins ready to draw, and her swords on.” – Berra
“She may or may not have slept last night, but seems to be absolutely fine.” – Berra

“Out of 103…” – Mellia rolls First Aid

looks sadly at Scan score – Berra

“If I hear the word lumiiviva out of you, I will whack you with my dirty clothes.” – Mellia
“That’s a White Lady threat!” – GM

yawn cycle – GM and Varanis

“Is it bad I heard that as ‘Your tractor is rocking it’?” – Irillo

“Oooh maaybe, maybe… How bad is my track anyhow?” – Varanis

“This is SARTAR!” – it is pissing down.
