Home again (well, almost)

It felt very strange to be back in Valdyas, even though Sarabal is full of Síthi. It didn’t help that we were in Turenay rather earlier (in real time) than I’d expected and I had to take over almost unprepared. Note: I don’t have much in the way of notes…

The rallying of Mernath

Athal’s last entry –well, the first part of it, because it’s another long one and I know that at least three people are waiting to read it– because we’re back in Valdyas and I’ve taken over the campaign again. I’m unlikely to stop posting roleplaying writeups, my own and others’,…

Treaties, goodbyes and more war ahead

Raisse is right that the title of baron isn’t hereditary: barons are appointed by the Crown. However, if a baron has an heir who seems to be suitable, that heir is appointed to the barony more often than not when the old baron dies or retires. After the usual washing…

No going home yet

She is so right about the tax revenues. And it turned out in the next session that it’s likely to actually work out that way, at least partially. Well, going home is not quite an option yet. I drifted off again and when we woke we got the message that…

Much deliberation

Here’s Athal catching himself thinking like an Iss-Peranian, more than once. Fortunately, it’s likely that he’ll be on the next <shudder> ship home, and only because it wasn’t feasible to catch the one that was just leaving. When a page and a maid came to wake us, it was already…

What a day

Was this really only one day? I think yes, though we slept for a few hours in the middle of it. It did end around midnight– the in-world day, that is, we ended neatly at 10:50. Unresolved questions: what on earth was Selle’s message? It must have been important. And…

(Almost) The End

I had to keep Athal from commenting between the lines. Let one thing be clear: I don’t know if it had any actual effect that Raisse came to Athal’s aid, but even if it didn’t he’s glad she did, and so am I! When we came back from the temple…

Shaken

The break in the story doesn’t coincide completely with the break in the session; we stopped just before the allies came in and picked it up again from there. It wasn’t long after that until we gained too much momentum to stop. At one point I was worried whether I’d…

More meetings

I had such a spiffy title for this, but it went away, confound it. Posting in two parts to stop myself thinking I need to finish writing it all in one go; next one (with action!) coming today or tomorrow. The session was interrupted by Raisse’s player trying (without success)…

Meeting the victims of evil

Following on immediately from “Ale and a warm bath“. Then we went to the square where the celebration was prepared and in fact already going on. They had placed two thrones in the centre and since we are all the royalty they are going to get here that’s understandable. We…
