    Default IC II Ljonarian Enigma: Imperial Affairs

    Gastaraa Plains, Imperial Encampment

    During the next two days the Imperial entourage stays camped on the same spot in the middle of the plains. While the original plan had been to set out on the following day, the sudden attack by fey creatures radically changed those plans. Thirty-four lives of Imperial soldiers and servants were lost in total, during the night the fey first appear and in the aftermath. At this point there are no more fey left in the camp; some were killed, others fled to the plains and a few simply disappeared to thin air. An attempt was made to hold some of the more humanoid-like fey captive, but they turned out to be too unpredictable, and in the end all either fled or died in attacking their captors.

    Aerin, Rowan, Relik, Hawke and Sandra have been housed in a couple of rows north of the centre of camp, in a tent of comfortable size. They've been questioned a number of times about the events that brought them here, and what they know of Duchess Shalesse's plans and so on, until they're sick and tired of the whole damn story. Other than that however, there's not been much to complain about, they've slept on clean bedrolls, eaten with the soldiers at the mess tents, and been free to wander around the camp as they wish.

    It's been two nights since they stopped the Duchess of Springhaven from carrying out her nefarious plan, and Preceptor Agiloor has sent a request that they come visit him around midday, apparently he has something important to discuss.

    ___________________________


    Springhaven, Temple of Illyrie

    Eglantine has spent two days in the tranquil temple. She met Mother Ethanna briefly on the day she entered and the High Cleric had a small spartan room prepared for her for “as long as was needed”. Lord Belgrede and his son Darian are also staying in rooms by the same corridor. Darian has been grumpy and expressed displeasure about the simple accommodations they've been put in, but the old lord has looked much better since he was rescued from the castle and appears to have regained his sanity, though he still likes to occasionally demonstrate how he would have liked to cut down all those evil villains with quick swings with an imaginary sword. He isn't happy to be apart from his wooden sword, but weapons are strictly prohibited in Illyrie's temple, and he's been forced to leave it in the care of Brother Gregor in the entrance hall. Eggy also had to leave her battleaxe and hammers there for the time being.

    Life in the temple is peaceful as ever, but peeking out from the window Eglantine has seen that guards still keep watch outside. Sister Friesd, who leaves every day to make home calls brings in gossip from the city. According to her, there have been riots around the city. Representatives of the Duchess have been speaking against the Empire, and this has caused division amongst the people. Also, there have been more sightings of beasts within the city walls, which has further upset the populace, and some of the Tournament visitors are leaving early. And the Royal Castle is closed off, no one goes in or out. The guards posted outside claim that everything is fine, but the situation is obviously suspicious, and there are rumours about “lizardfolk” or some such walking on the castle walls.

    Eglantine spent the time after her narrow escape to the temple trying to help out. She used her small ability to heal as directed and helped with more manual labor once that was exhausted. Occasionally she used her tools to help do the sewing of new garments or patching of the old.

    Every time Sister Friesd returned from house calls, Eglantine pestered her for information on Vindal and the shop.

    She didn't want to express worry, but having not heard from Rowan in so long she was starting to be very concerned. She had never been apart from her brother for so long.

    Finally having grown past the point of being able to wait calmly she went looking for Mother Ethanna.

    Hawke watched silently as Mushroom enthusiastically finished off his meal. Normally this would be the time when he would playback the past few days' events in his mind, but he had retold the story so many times that it no longer seemed necessary. Instead he simply decided to be glad that the charm effect had not lasted so long as he may have feared. He remembered how Mushroom had lowered his head and whimpered when the spell wore off, presumably in regret for having attacked him at the fey's direction. To Hawke's amusement though, it didn't take him long to get over it. He never let anything bother him for too long.

    Hawke envied that about his badger companion.

    Mushroom finished off his meal and then turned to Hawke, expectantly. "Ready?" he asked, petting him as he stood up. To any other party member currently present in the tent, he says "I'm gonna go for a walk. I'll catch up at midday."

    Hawke and Mushroom leave the tent and set out to find Udara.

    So basically, Hawke will want to find and talk to Udara like he had promised her before. I imagine that this is happening the morning before the midday meeting, but I suppose it could have happened anytime he had time during the past few days.

    Once she's satisfied that the battle is currently over, Aerin will seek aid with her injuries, particularly her ongoing clumsiness problem.

    Other than that, she'll remain alert for any sign of further trouble. If anyone, in the party or outside, asks her about what happened, she'll answer bluntly. When the Preceptor's request arrives, she heads promptly to his tent.

    Rowan makes sure that his companions are more alive than dead, especially restoring the fine motor control poison had stolen from Aerin.

    If he's questioned, Rowan answers honestly, but stresses that the Duchess wasn't the only conspirator. However, his only evidence for this is that a dead Cleric had told him so.

    Otherwise, he does what he does best, and cares for those lucky enough not to be among the thirty-four dead. In particular, he keeps tabs on those whose lives had required more magical intervention than most to keep- Captain Macrul and the elf Syanadh.

    When he's not needed, Rowan seeks to buy a few things that would make his life easier. Not really likely to be found in an imperial encampment but...trying wasn't bad.

    1.) a backpack, since Rowan used his means of carrying items to make a stink bomb. (2gp, 2lbs)

    After enduring the questions, employing only the tersest of responses, Relik will spend most of his time either with Mushroom (and Hawke as well) or with some of the camp soldiers. Though never really at ease within the camp, he does enjoy some level of camaraderie with the soldiers there.

    When the Perceptor's request arrives, Relik is relieved, hoping that this means they will be leaving this place soon, and getting paid too.

    At some point he will also try to get a new length of rope from a quartermaster (or find that tent with his old one, if it hasn't been confiscated already).

She climbs up the helical stairs up to Mother Ethanna's office and knocks. "Come in. It's good to see you Eglantine", the High Cleric invites her to step into the circular chamber.

    Hawke asks around and finds his way to where Udara is staying. He notices the flag of Havet, a warship in a storm, flying under the empire's winged sun on top of her squad's tent. There's also a third flag which has a more complicated design, probably the personal crest of some noble family. It looks vaguely familiar, but he can't name who exactly it belongs to. Not the man he angered though, he's quite sure of that.

    Udara runs to greet Hawke as soon as she notices him. "Brother! Good to see you're alright. I went to see the fallen yesterday and thank the gods you weren't among them. Would've been a sorry tale to tell Ma!" She has a partly healed tear with a bruise under it on her forehead herself, but looks to be otherwise alright.

    A cleric is called to remove the stiffness from Aerin on the day after the battle, and see to any other injuries the party might still have. The man introduces himself as Calus Heren, Third Overseer of the Noble God Eskin. He speaks to Aerin and the others in a proud condescending tone that communicates that he considers this healing business to be totally beneath him, especially since the recipients have no official rank whatsover.

    Quote Originally Posted by aReallyGreatAxe View Post

    Despite his arrogant attitude towards the task, the Overseer seems annoyed that Rowan has done most of it for him, and treats the young healer with particular coldness.

    The healers taking care of the wounded in a promptly establish infirmary welcome Rowan's help much more warmly. They are mostly followers of Moelga with her emblem the grinning sun embroidered on the front of their robes. There's also one priest of Iszyl, the Goddess of Death, but he's more occupied by preparing the bodies of the dead for the funeral than healing the living, though he occasionally provides assistance when asked.

    Commander Macrul, who should be thankful to not be scheduled to attend his own funeral, recovers quickly once all his wounds are healed, though the clerics advise him to take it easy for a few days. He thanks Rowan, a bit stiffly like soldiers are wont to but he seems genuinely thankful, then returns to his duties.

    Syanadh however, is still pale in addition for the extensive scarring to the head and chest, and is ordered strict bed rest at the infirmary even after they appear to be completely healed. After hearing the details of the events, Moelga's clerics call Syanadh being alive a 'miracle indeed' and look at Rowan with new respect.

    "Do you have a moment?", the elf asks Rowan on the second morning, when the latter has dropped by the infirmary to check on things, a few hours before he's due to meet the Preceptor.

    You can make a Religion check for more information about Eskin, Moelga and Iszyl (separate checks), if you would like. Anyone can try this, untrained is allowed.

    The clerics sell Rowan the rings for a price of 90 gold. A new backpack he easily acquires from the quartermaster for 2 gold and 1 silver.

    You can roll Religion to see if you know the other entity she refers to.

    Salt fields actually refers to a long beach circling a cove of particularly salty water (aptly named Salt Cove) in western Havet. It's a desolate place, except for the sea salt harvesting, and most of the workers are criminals, exiles or other 'unwanted' people.

    Hawke returns the hug, and then wipes some moisture from his eyes and takes several moments to compose himself before replying (in a quiet voice, of course). "Blasted hypocrites. They stole so much from us, it was no wonder we had no medical supplies to help Father recover from his injury. So... I decided to take some back. They had so much, they likely wouldn't have even noticed it missing, if I hadn't been caught by Galadhon and that smug, self-aggrandizing attitude of his."

    Hawke sighs. "He said that Father deserved what he got. In reply, I threw the potion I had in my hand at him. I wasn't thinking clearly, but that probably gave me the opening that allowed me to escape at all. And so I did, and I knew I couldn't go back home and bring their wrath down upon the rest of you."

    Hawke's gaze shifts vaguely to the sky. "And so I left. I suppose I should thank Stormsoul that they didn't go after you all anyway. I just regret that I failed to do more. Maybe I could have done things differently, somehow."

    Hawke stops talking in order to focus on maintaining his composure.

    "Yeah, figured as much", the elf replies and sighs. Rowan does a general check up, and finds nothing specifically wrong with Syanadh. They're a little pale, but otherwise seem to be well, the magical healing having fixed everything that was broken, save for the scarring. Still, Rowan understands the clerics' concern; people that are subjected to intense magic can occasionally manifest unpredictable symptoms later. Physically though, the elven guard is fit as a fiddle.

    "I will. And try to do so discreetly if possible, though I fear master Ebon's shop might also be watched. But I'll see what I can do."

    There is a knock on the door. "Please enter", Ethanna replies and Brother Gregor steps in. After he has bowed to the High Cleric, he turns to Eglantine. "There's a young man in the lobby, asking to see you. Says his name is Iver Dhan and that you know him. Looked agitated, but who doesn't these days?" Brother Gregor scoffs.

    Reminder: Iver is Eggy and Rowan's upstairs neighbour in Ms Mellow's boarding house. He's renting the overpriced attic room. He's a half-elf, and as far Eggy knows he used to be a wandering poet and bard. She last saw him the morning Rowan left.

    Spoiler: Sheirin
    Show
    The god of the dead and forgotten, Sheirin is both revered and scorned. The wealthy and prestigious rarely care for The Friend of Beggars and Outcasts, but the less fortunate are often less condescending and turn to him and his clerics for aid. Sheirin's clergy teaches understanding and forgiveness, and try to offer hope even to those that feel most lost. Some other gods like to mock Sheirin for his compassionate and refusal to bear grudges even when faced with injustice, and followers of other deities occasionally mock the followers of Sheirin saying 'he takes even the scraps other gods even don't care to hate'. Some of this sentiment is perhaps true, as Sheirin is often worshipped by outcasts, outlaws, beggars and other people that don't feel part of the society, however, underestimating these people and their god may not always prove wise.

    It is said that in the ancient times Sheirin grew to pity the many souls who were neither accepted or claimed by any of the other gods, and were left to a sad fate to wander the nothingness alone for eons if they didn't find their way to reincarnation, and more often than not they became easy prey for greedy entities to exploit. With the help of his twin sister Melkin, goddess of Spring, Sheirin created the Garden of Souls, a resting place for all who have no other place after death, from where no one is to be turned away.

    Temples for Sheirin are usually simple and practical buildings, but welcoming places for quiet contemplation and a sanctuary from persecution. His clerics generally establish enough hierarchy to keep things working smoothly, but even those higher up in rank are expected to get their hands dirty and do their part in the service of the Patient God.

    Sheirin's nicknames include The Compassionate/Patient God, Friend of Beggars (and Outcasts) and Lord of the Lost/Forgotten Souls.

You're not... involved in anything illegal or dangerous, are you?" She sighs. "You're risking your neck again, aren't you? You mentioned you were caught up in some plot or something?"

    The god of the dead and forgotten, Sheirin is both revered and scorned. The wealthy and prestigious rarely care for The Friend of Beggars and Outcasts, but the less fortunate are often less condescending and turn to him and his clerics for aid. Sheirin's clergy teaches understanding and forgiveness, and try to offer hope even to those that feel most lost. Some other gods like to mock Sheirin for his compassionate and refusal to bear grudges even when faced with injustice, and followers of other deities occasionally mock the followers of Sheirin saying 'he takes even the scraps other gods even don't care to hate'. Some of this sentiment is perhaps true, as Sheirin is often worshipped by outcasts, outlaws, beggars and other people that don't feel part of the society, however, underestimating these people and their god may not always prove wise.

    Syanadh doesn't ping as dead or undead by the spell. However, it registers them as alarmingly wounded and dying, even though Rowan just confirmed the elf is quite healthy.

    Spoiler: Mistress of Fate
    Show
    Mistress of Fate is one of the title's of Virnil, Goddess of Luck and Fate. She is seen as a neutral unemotional figure, who watches the worlds with indifference, except for when something happens to pique her interest. Then she sets up her gameboard and poor are the souls who end up as pawns in her game of solitaire. Occasionally other gods may join in or place bets. While Virnil's Luck is no more bad than good, the high stakes she plays with make most people want to avoid her attention. This is why praying to her is a double-edged sword, you might get what you wish, but have little chance of ever living a quiet life.

    Sometimes Virnil gets tired of chance and then she takes up the Quill of Fate and begins writing Edicts that shape the future still in the making. Unlike prophets who makes vague and uncertain predictions about the future, the destinies Virnil chooses almost certainly come true, only few have ever been able to change their fate after she has penned it down.

    Virnil's other nicknames include Lady Luck and Writer of Destinies. Her symbol is a smiling and frowning face on opposite sides of a coin.

The cleric pays no attention to them though, he's gone back to his desk by the door and continues to write in his long scroll. Nevertheless, Iver lowers his voice, "I don't know how to explain this, it's pure chance I'm even here telling this to you. You see, the night before last I heard this odd sound, like something hitting the wall from outside. It was past midnight! I was up after sleeping the whole day, the tournament can be quite tiring. Anyway, I was up and heard the noise and peered out from my window to see who was doing such a thing. I saw a young lad, not much older than your brother, throwing rocks at your window and crying for your brother. I was about to tell him to stop and go away, when he just collapsed." Iver shakes his head. "I didn't know what to do. I didn't know him, but it didn't seem alright to just leave another person like that. I tried knocking on your door but no one answered, so I went out and found the kid. He had a bad stab wound in the stomach and was delirious. I know tiny bit of healing so I stopped the bleeding but he was still in a bad shape. I asked if we should alert the Guard, but he said no. Actually he was really adamant about that.

He told he doesn't want the Guard nor any clerics other than Rowan, to be honest I think he's rather scared. But something must be done, I don't want a body on my hands and I want my bed back!

    Rowan sighs in relief. "Don't worry, you're definitely alive. I think we'd notice, otherwise. Staying here is a very good idea though, magic seems to think you're in a lot more trouble than you really are." he launches into a rather muddled explanation of auras, even though he doesn't have the firmest grasp on magical theory himself where it doesn't directly deal with keeping people alive. That was Eggy's job.

    A few minutes later, he's thoroughly confused himself and sits bolt upright, suddenly aware that he'd been talking to Syanadh for quite a while now. "I'm terribly sorry, but I have to go. There's a meeting. If you're ever in Springhaven, the Temple's quite nice, you'd love Mother Ethanna."

    Hawke glances at the sky and notices that midday lighting is already setting in. "Ugh... unfortunately I have to see the Preceptor soon." Hawke sets the bag of gold in Udara's hand and gives her another hug. "Love you, sis."

    Imperial Encampment

    Udara accepts the money from Hawke and gives him one last hug before letting him go. The ranger takes a moment to compose himself before heading towards the Preceptor's tent. Similarly, Rowan bids farewell to Syanadh, who looks a bit unhappy at having to stay in the infirmary, but they thank him for stopping to chat. Then he too heads to the scheduled meeting.

    The two are joined by Aerin, Relik and Sandra, and all arrive at the tent together. A human servant is waiting outside and shows that they may enter. The tent has been set up for the Preceptor in a hurry, though it's still orderly, if spartanly furnished. Agiloor is inside, studying a map laid out on a table. Captain Avendii stands on the side of the room, looking somewhat bored. She's wearing a blue tunic instead of armour today, and this look brings out how young she really is; hardly much older than Rowan. Both illumians have their letters visible.

    There's also a third person in the room, a tall woman is standing by the map with the Preceptor. They both turn when the party comes inn, and Agiloor nods in greeting. "Good afternoon. Yes Councillor, these are the people we all have to thank for being crucial in saving the life of our beloved Emperor and preserving the peace of the Empire, for the moment at least", he gestures to the woman, "May I introduce Councillor Xastra Mountainhall. Councillor, please meet Rowan Mata, follower of Illyrie, and warriors Aerin Thorn, Relik and Hawke."

    The Councillor looks mostly human, though her purple complexion and dark violet hair are not something you usually associate with the race. She's dressed in white robes decorated with gold thread that forms intricate symmetrical patterns, and her hair is tied on a very tight bun on top of her head. She has the air of a strict school teacher. "Pleased to meet you in person at last", she says, enunciating her words very clearly. "I asked Preceptor Agiloor to arrange this meeting with you so I can officially thank you on behalf of the Empire. I regret nothing more grand can be arranged, since the details of this incident are of Imperial importance and must be kept secret as much as possible. I hope I can trust in your discretion?"

    "You will of course be rewarded for your services to the Empire", she gestures towards the side table, and the servant collects five coin pouches and offers one to each member of the party. "You will find 500 platinum inside, I counted them myself so there is no error. I also hope you would consider continuing to aid the Empire with a new task."

    Sorry you had to wait so long, Catbeard and Kish. Thank you for your patience.

    You're given 5000 gp each, in platinum coins.
