Spirit on fire

More travel in which “nothing” happens. With extra elephants. Maha and Thulo were in the tent together for a long time, and they had such an air of “we’re itnimate, don’t disturb” about them — not strictly a seal, just a feeling, but strong enough– that nobody went in, even…

Saving the kingdom

Well, it was a small kingdom. But still. Only, she’s losing all her good weapons to that pesky Archan and his servants. Of course we didn’t leave the moment the service ended. I did remember to put stones from the temple in a bag, but before we went we had…

Plans for a raid

Sedi still suffers from Foot In Mouth Disease. Perhaps she’ll grow out of it before she dies of it. As we were talking in the temple Pesar entered too, still leaving the priest fuming outside. I suddenly realised what was keeping him from entering — this was a priest of…

Lots of travelling

The GM said “now there will be seven sessions in which you travel and nothing happens” but lots of things did happen in this one: little things that built character and made relationships clearer, training, friendship, exciting new things to do with the mind and all! The king was as…

Holiness in spite of myself

All she did was pray in public… If there’s a title she rightly deserves, it’s Knife Destroyer. I make it a total of four, and possibly a sword as well. It’s annoying that we’ll have to leave an angry priest outside our temple until August, but there are several elephants…

Meeting Mehili

If it had been the last session before the summer holidays –which we briefly thought it was– we’d have detained Thulo’s player to have an hour more so we could get into a fresh lot of trouble… The city was still strange, quiet and empty, not full of bustle as…

Trial

Sedi only knows it from Thulo’s showing and telling, of course. She wasn’t there for the other significant scene either, and neither of the participants of that have told her anything. It turned out that the only masters left at the Order house apart from Rhanion himself were Jeran, in…

Lockdown

For some reason this was extraordinarily hard to write, not only the last couple of scenes but also the adventure part. But it was a real adventure, damsel-in-distress and all! Phuli took us to where she lived, about half an hour’s walk away. I’d called Maha to say we were…

Humanity

Overpreparing again, but it hasn’t hurt yet. Though I fully expect that their plans won’t survive contact with, well, anyone really. We went to the tailor first after all. Tamame at the bath-house had given us the address of a place that made clothes to measure fast and at reasonable…

Albetire

At least Sedi is aware that she doesn’t have enough experience as a spy to work undercover in a place she doesn’t know. (Well, it started as an ‘oops’ moment, but it may turn out to be an advantage.) When we came closer to Albetire, the weather changed: it had…
