15 – A Gods’ Night

Morning came, and found the leavings of the night. A Builder-stone well was found where the hermaphrodite deer revealed it to Caerdwyn. A brass plug, imbued with the Science of Letters, plugged the opening of the well. Abandoning the legacy of the past to the past, the company turned their attention to Bayeo’s discomfort and…


14 – Elderwood

The party decided, at the last, to turn north, delaying Evayn’s return home in favor of securing horses and the possibility of armed aid through Llewer’s influence in Ternyn. The miles slide away underneath them as they walk the Ribbon north along Arddbyn’s great green open cow pastures – though they see no sign of…


13 – Siar means Speaker

NPCs Evayn – Young female Siar of the unknown voice Summary At the depression circling the town, Bayeo was overcome by vertigo and fell to the ground. Heaven and earth seemed to change places, and he clung to the grass, howling, as figures of Vulfen grandfathers seemed to tower above him, and a trough of…

8 – Fodaan

The group returned to its chambers through the stone corridors of Pynwydden Abbey after the talk with the Abbess and the High Bard. Once alone, rather than taking their rest, they continue the discussion, rolling around between themselves what may be going on, and what their future options may be. They decided to respect and…


7 – Pynwydden Abbey

In some kind of silent choreography, the Abbess stoked the life back into the room, like a woman stirring incarnadine life back into darkened coals. Slowly, like a child’s mobile stirred by the wind, movement and conversation came back, and all those there entered into a state of pretending the group in their midst had…


6 – Dun Vwym and the feet of Pynwydden
