How it really went.

  • 67 – The end of an era. The grand move to Gebasath & getting there is half the fun Sir Noami welcomes the Prince’s voice and grants them his manor as their home base. There is much to do, and the move takes most of 4 1/2 months. We pick up again with domestic peace restored and a messenger arriving in the cold month of Ilven. (Game Date: July 26, 2015)
  • 68 – Welcome to winter. 11th – 17th of Ilven, 722 With urgency, the party has been told to "get thee to Chendy by their Prince. It would seem the location for the negotiations has been set. While the Prince is interested in at least hearing out the plans of Kanday’s northern neighbors, the King has yet to proclaim his support for the rebellion in Rethem; for that is exactly what Earl Denyl Lynnaeus proposes – to overthrow his king and put the rightful heirs on the throne; bypassing both the Morgathian support for the crown and the Agrikan defenders of the King.// (Game Date: September 6, 2015)
  • 69 – Search for the missing. 17th of Ilven, 722 Mireala is missing, and the whole village turns out to look for her as the weather gets worse. The physican’s apprentice is missing and all of Chendy Abbey is answering the hew and cry set forth by the party. Mirelael, having stayed with a newborn babe overnight, is believed to have gone off in the quiet of the dawn to perform her rounds in the village, but she has not been seen past Orhan of Lemra’s house. The smith is quite upset over it and torn between finding the well-beloved woman who birthed his only child or staying with mother and newborn. Sir Tirn is acting as the delegation’s bodyguard, and the orbaleese guards have reduced their number to 1 to match him. The other two have retired to the guest house to take their leisure. One guard (Kal) has gone with Sir Kjarri and eventually meets Seenae, Nina and Tamari at the Red Horse Inn. (Game Date: September 20, 2015)
  • 70 – Funeral for a friend. 18th of Ilven, 722 - Meketa Mireala’s funeral. Three peonians (who were left to die in the entombed Morgathian temple beneath the mortuary) also receive service. Can the party find the murderer? (Game Date: October 4th, 2015)
  • 71 And another one falls – (Game Date: October 18th, 2015) – Anniversary session. The game began officially on October 14th, 2012; Happy 3rd anniversary! A second death brings chaos to the Abbey. Nimriel was merely an apprentice. Who would have such grief against him to murder him? The party is torn between the lack of physical evidence of the crime and the prophecy the other priests are muttering about.
  • Chendy Questions. The players decide to question everyone in Chendy Abbey about the Matakea Mirelael and the apprentice, Nemiral. Here then are the first 12-or so sets of responses.
  • 72 – (Game Date: November 1st, 2015) – 18th of Ilven, 722 The party is stymied. So far, two have died (Mireala and Nemiral) and one’s been poisoned (Gerin). The abbey folk are starting to talk, and few seem willing to go anywhere alone. Prayers have been offered up for Mireala and tomorrow masses will be held for Nemiral; but that is only the first step in the grieving that will come. They decide to question everyone in the abbey; a daunting task – but one they feel might turn up a clue. That and searching the place from top to bottom for a very sharp knife.
  • 73 – A conclusion, of sorts. (Game Date: November 15th, 2015) – 18th of Ilven, 722. The party learns the truth and is tasked with dealing with the consequences.
  • 74 – Stymied by discussions (Game Date: November 29th, 2015) – 18th – 21st of Ilven, 722. The party discusses a lot of things. They make many plans, but little happens.
