Weight of the Blue Shoulders

In the swamp, the Builder structure burns in the night. Dian asks for a reminder of why they have come to the Maevan Fens in the first place. Caerdwyn and Bayeo told him about their long quest after young Lord Cyrdaen’s folly, and the seeming subterfuge played by Telsara Yrlaedd, the Wizard, using the egg…


The Fens

Afloat in the heavy but light-floating Saren dugout, they made their way serenely along the swollen river. The grasslands and empty, flooded fishing villages of southern Cahál slid past, quiet, lovely, home to white, long-legged cranes stepping with delicacy among the grasses and reeds. The river was swift in its swollen banks, hurrying to fill…


Meet the People

In the morning, they feasted on the bounty of the plains and discussed their options. Dian felt that they would know no hardship crossing the spring bounty of open Cahál toward the Maevan Swamp. Given the party’s reluctance to get involved in politics, Dian suggested a route that took them through the plains of the south…


Farmlands and unexpected Ease

Another day Dian lingerd with them on the slopes of the mountain where the Draoi came to recuperate from long labors. He was relaxed and full of information, and everything the duo had yet to have in a companion. Calmly convinced that they had saved Mawr from certain destruction, he was willing to aid them…


A New History (ch 2)

The two of them woke, alone and stinking on a bed of pine needles that they had obviously occupied on and off for some time, given all the evidence. No sign of Saar or Guaer or Fodan. Somewhere nearby, over their stench, Bayeo could scent water and sulfur. Up a hill out of the pine…


25 – Epilogue

Bayeo The road was white, and gray. Not smooth, but perhaps a fine stone powdered by the passage of many feet. He reached the lip of stone and the road carried on. A voice stopped him. “Please. I am caught. Please, will you help me?” The Bandraoi was there, his white robe shining in the…


24 – Sudden Conclusions

Reaching Afon Gwyn, the party made their way up its steep banks until they found a large, sturdy covered bridge crossing the boulder-strewn whitecaps of the White River. In the middle of the bridge, in green robes, a man stood calmly, facing them, as though he had been waiting for them for some time.  He…


23 – Losing the way, finder

After the strange events of the night, Bayeo went out into Goodwick to find what had become of the soldier. He discovered him one-armedly making a cairn in the rain for his dead comrades, still somewhat befuddled by what had happened. After some discussion, they decided to leave off on the dead, and look to…


22 – Silent Night

Outside the Builder structure, with it sealed behind them like it never was, they rest in the silver shield of the rain cascading off the cliff. Finally, as sight is beginning to return to Caerdwyn as a grey ghost-world, they lead him up the zigzag of blue-white stone and back into the town of Goodwick….


21 – Goodwick

The residents of the inn were in a pallid slumber from which they would not be roused. Frightened, and disheartened, the group retreated from the inn to the edge of the village square. There, Caerdwyn used the Eye to search for the cause of this trouble and beheld a great sea-green maelstrom, drawing, ineluctably, motes…
