Boys who are soldiers

Raisse is still spelling “Khora” even though Cora isn’t; I think that’s a feature so I’m leaving it that way. We had a little something to eat and dressed up like any old noble to go to the temple of Dayati. Of course it’s hard not to be noticed with…

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,…

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…

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…

Politics at home

We had to stop in the middle of a scene, but that was Moyri’s scene anyway. This morning Athal was up earlier than I. He was down at the stables to talk to the people of the plains. So I had time to visit the school officially. The whole area…

Back home

Both Raisse and Moyri are so pregnant that the adventure has to come to their door… Follows right on from Raisse’s last entry in the previous story arc. That evening I returned to the hospital to read to the children and see about Mernath. I’ll be leaving him in the…
