    (on the other hand, was Dalen in disguise when he assaulted the old fishery? Lamm might already know that Dalen isn't on his side.)
    Bluff check, a change of clothing, and the Clark Kent special - taking off his glasses

    I'll figure it out. Common sense has never stopped Dalen's brilliant plans before

    Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated, if that's what you mean.
    But yeah, I went on a trip last weekend, and every time I seem to do that, the following week is just a mess.

    I am working on the next update now, hopefully it should be up by tonight!

    Question for the group! After you have finished your current duo stories, what do you want to do next? Are there things you want to put forward to tackle as a group? Individual goals you'd like to work on and thus need a few days of slack down time? Waiting for me to push this glacier of a story along to the next main plot point? Let me know! I can finally see a little daylight at the end of the tunnel here for book one (by my reckoning we're in the "mid-game" phase of book one) although I still have plenty of ideas left before we get there. Oh yes.

    Dalen has essentially three priorities at the moment: continue to build on Ileosa as a client for his services, capture Gaedren Lamm, and get answers about being thrown into this parallel timeline. He suspects that seeking Lamm will go hand in hand with that last one.

    Goals, in no particular order, and I've probably forgotten some:

    1) Figure out this sudden problem of potential daddy issues, wherever they may lead.
    2) Find out why the sisters left, and where they went to.
    3) Lamm, duh, obviously.
    3a) Kynndor Thok, obviously.
    4) Try to keep the queen on the right path in terms of actually doing useful things and not getting sucked in by the bunch of other influences that will no doubt be clawing at her.
    5) Starting to build some sort of actual popular movement toward a new and improved government
    6) Probably, in some way, at least fully explaining to the rest of the party WTF he's doing with these people, etcetera

    None of these need to be played out on screen as their own scenes or whatever; I think getting back on a main track would be good. I consider all those sideplots, and I don't expect all of them to get fully resolved in any sort of timely manner.

    Lamm is a side plot? Hrrrm, I wonder what the actual main plot of the game is then.

    Well, you make a good point there.

    (The point, obviously, is to build a better Korvosa, and however Lamm gets disposed of is secondary to that. Have you not read the holy word?)

    Not terribly different from the rest.

    • Reconcile with his daughter.
    • Kill Lamm
    • Increase clientele (or retire if cashflow is sufficient)
    • demolish Lamm's upline (or whatever MLM huns call their suppliers)
    • Gain notoriety through assisting the palace
    • Continue to remove threats to the general public


    I could be forgetting something.

    Ugh, yeah sorry guys.
    This time of the year is the absolute worst for me between seasonal allergies and work reaching its most stressful point in the year.
    I will get something put together soon as I can, it's just hard to write when I come home so mentally drained.

    I've gotten busier myself as well. Not "lose a level" drained, but I've definitely been missing some Wis lately.

    Okay, there we go!
    Update posted!
    Finally got a post together, and I think provided some interesting wrinkles in each group's day (or night, at the case may be.)
    I will really try not to let the next update take as long to make!

    Just because it's been a while since this information was relevant, and I wanted to make sure it was remembered now that it's a thing for two of our heroes.

    • Last year, amid concerns that the year's farming crop would be less than usual and a famine may break out, King Eodred purchased a considerable quantity of grain from House Jeggare's storehouse to disperse to the poor. Ultimately it turned out that the grain had gone bad, but only after a number of the poor who first went to the storehouse for the disbursement died from eating it. A further scandal broke out a month later when it was revealed that the year's crop was in fact close to normal, and someone had manipulated the reports, undoubtedly in an attempt to spike the price on food sky-high to make a profit. King Eodred vowed to launch an investigation into this matter, but it never went any further.

    So, yeah . . . not her fault.

    I'm not sure what Silas may know, but Dalen has never been told about Xerxes so that name means nothing to him. Definitely something he would mention if he knew it, but he doesn't.

    Would Silas recognize Xerxes as possibly being both the one in the meeting and the one he attacked during the riot?

    I think only Aliani would recognize the name, unfortunately.
    But Silas may have caught a glimpse of him out on the streets in front of Dalen's shop during the night of the riots, and been able to recognize him at the meeting with Aliani's friends that Lamm showed up at.
    For the sake of keeping things interesting, anyway.

    It just occurred to me that "the affairs of his late mother" is a perfect double-entendre given the revelation in question.

    Sorry for the late response. I was honestly stuck on how to talk to a queen in that moment. I was considering some indignant language because she mostly ignored Trinia - a girl that was living in fear for her life for the past two weeks. However, I wasn't sure what your plan for a response was, so I guess I'll shelf the attitude until Silas hears more.

    Xerxes: Silas would know the name only from the meeting with Lamm and the riots, but he only has a face from the meeting as far as I know. Dead-eyed Xerxes. Plus, the riot was like two weeks ago. Or a week ago. I forget.

    Sadly the pun was unintentional for me, the player. I'd love to take credit for that, but it was unintentional. For the slick-tongued Dalen in-universe, though? Yeah, he totally knew what he was saying.

    I believe the riots are around a week or slightly less ago at this point, but I would have to go back and count the actual days to be sure.
    It's been an action-packed series of days in our heroes' lives though, that is for sure!

    Update posted!
    Hopefully that will meet with Silas's approval, and Dalen's pride is not too burned by Vox's acerbic brand of flirting.
    Also apologies for hurrying things along a bit with Aliani & Miz, but I thought given the slow rate of my updates lately it was better to move things along quickly.
