A very quiet party crasher

The banquet itself went rather well I think. Khora and Aidan, understandably, got much attention. I danced with those I should until Radan gave me an excuse to get away from it for a while. When my attention was no longer focused on those I was conversing or dancing with,…

Moyri’s letter from Turenay

But still in the “valdis” category, because otherwise it would screw up the sequence too much. Ysellei Moyri astin Rhydin, Valdis, thirteenth week after the feast of Anshen, the year 347, to Ravei Raisse astin Brun Dearest, dearest Raisse, I started missing you the day I left, and that has…

A letter from Moyri to Tal-Nus

She’s been too pregnant, too busy and too tired to have any actual adventures, but that doesn’t mean she has nothing to write! Ysellei Moyri astin Rhydin, Valdis, tenth week after the feast of Anshen, the year 347 To her uncle Eldan and her brother Lydan Dear Uncle, dear Brother,…

Coming and going

Raisse is uncharacteristically brief, but she and her player have both been very busy. My description of events will be somewhat short, because my mind has been on other things and I did not write it down as promptly as I should have. Prince Attima arrived at the palace with…

Interlude from spies with babies

That Lyan didn’t say anything about the dandar was pure GM oversight, not any shortcoming of Lyan’s. [ETA: Or, as Raisse’s player said, perhaps he’ll want to wait until after Midsummer.] I hope I’ll remember next time so the queen won’t stop working with him! The spies we know about…

A letter from Moyri to her parents

It’s time to send me your congratulations! The day before yesterday, two days before Midsummer I gave birth to the twins Lydan and Bandeh.…

A letter from Moyri to Ysella

Ysellei Moyri astin Rhydin, Valdis, ninth week after the feast of Timoine, the year 347 To her Mother Mother dear, There is, again, all kinds of news. First the most important thing: Raisse has given birth to her son and named him Radan. Prince Radan! She is very well, and…

Radan

He wasn’t exactly late, but took a lot of game time coming! Today, or actually yesterday because I did not get around to writing this down, is exactly three weeks before the feast of Anshen. And this is important because Radan was born today. But I’m getting ahead of myself.…

Spy City

Raisse’s player writes: “Raisse blindly assumes that she is doing Moyri a favour by finding a replacement and that Moyri sees it the same way. If she ever thought about that consciously that may change. Probably because she is concerned for Moyri’s health and does not want her friend sacrificing…

Games unearth the dirt

The cryptic title will become clear towards the end… This morning we had some shocking news. We went to Moyri and Uznur to get it. They had a guest: a visiting tapestry merchant named Dimani ar-Rajul. She was sent by Koll Konandé, on the very same night that we made…
