On a Day Out

On the eve of the day of Anshen, we all went to High Penedin, on the other side of the lake. It’s quite a trip, over two hours with donkey and cart. It’s the only time the doctors take off, every other week — the other week it’s Serla and…

Fish, Iron and Love

In Tylenay From Tal Rayen to Tylenay is about a day and a half. You have to go the little river port place again, and then further east-north-east. Or maybe that’s not exactly correct. I’m not a cartographer. The road was pretty amazing, though, well graded, with a good, deep…

Winter

We thought we’d start something else, but the GM wasn’t quite ready so we had a bit of fun on the ice. For some values of fun, anyway. It was really winter now, though it was only a couple of weeks after the Feast of Mizran. It didn’t get dark…

Intervention

Well, that escalated quickly. We could have had a winding-down session after this but we all felt it would be better just to let these people go on with their lives without us. But I’ll miss them! We really had to hold a guild meeting before it started to snow.…

The workers’ camp

That was hard. About as hard as they’d thought but in different ways. And possibly more dangerous than they were aware of. (But the new guy is a very good guy!) We’d really have to go to the workers’ camp now, something we weren’t looking forward to at all! We…

High Penedin

A bit of a holiday. Amre had to make an effort not to work. The next day was the Day of Anshen and we were off to the village — not only had we promised the children that we’d go, but we wanted to be there ourselves and see what…

Wedding!

Not two weddings, like the children wanted, but as Arni said, one is quite enough. The moment Hylse and Jeran appeared in the kitchen, Halla took them away. It took them a while to come back: they’d been to Jeran’s mother, too. There were congratulations all round, and then we…

A slap in the face

From memory because I didn’t take any notes — things were too exciting to break the flow by writing. (I admit that Venla was unconscious part of the time, but it was too exciting even then.) We woke up late, and the first thing we heard was the sound of…

Not an epidemic after all

But we thought it was, or at least it was going to be. The GM said we’ll have to count on life being this hectic every day for the rest of our lives, and if we don’t take time out for ourselves those lives might be shorter than we’d like.…

Choosing

The village is all right — more than all right. But now we’ve got a dozen bandits on our hands. Rava asked (probably after the night in the temple) either how to start with semsin or to talk to the gods, but I don’t remember any details! Will edit when…
