Summary

  • Raznel is seen moving through town in the form of Saraphene, Thadston's dead wife, before being spotted leaving the scene in Mayor Lylia's office. When adventurers arrive, Shinann unstuns Lylia, who explains that Raznel returned to take back the scarab she had imbedded in her; the group speculates about the timing and what purpose she might have for Lylia's blood.
  • Two nights later, Thrayzar speaks with the town, still occasionally flickering in and out of existence because of the effects of Praxopius' gauntlets or conditioning. He brings word that Thadston's been busy training with Casiphia, but intends to pen a missive to the militia and likely the mayor about going to the Bleaklands with a month, needing everyone we can get to be trained and ready for the dangers of the land and the witch.
  • Xorus asks if the purpose is to slay the witch, but Thrayzar says he can't say and explains his history--how he had succeeded on a mission to kill her once, but with her dying breath she'd cursed him and Drangell, turning them into an orc and troll respectively. He says he doesn't believe we can end Raznel now and suspects Thadston wants to know more of what she's up to.
  • Sir Goldstr brings up looking for Thadston's son Disean as well and Thrayzar says he'll help as he can to find him.
  • Elphieya says gathering information will be hard with a large group, but Thrayzar says she'll be aware of them either way and numbers will just mean a stronger defense. Nothing yet--yet, he stresses--they can do will go unseen by her. Still, he says she's been snuck up on before... by him and the Thorns, decades ago. Leafiara asks about the Thorns and Thrayzar hesitates, then names them as the Ivory Thorns.
  • Thrayzar concurs with Thadston about no longer waiting for the witch to bring trouble and instead making her react, then says he should rest. He leaves, musing that it's too soon to try some unknown plan of his.


Highlights

Pukk quietly asks, "No Sir Shiny?"
Speaking quietly to Pukk, Elphieya says, "For once you might be right."
Speaking quietly to Elphieya, Pukk says, "Scary, isn't it."
Speaking quietly to Pukk, Elphieya says, "More terrifying than the storm."
Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia asks, "What can you tell me about the scarabs she...embeds in people?"
Pukk quietly asks, "You had a scarab in you?"
Pukk quietly says, "I probably missed it...that explains why the mayor was always in a bad mood."
Pukk quietly says, "Now the mayor will want everybody to smooch and cuddle her."
Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "As is tradition among the Faendryl."
Pukk agrees with Lylia.
Pukk snuggles up to Lylia.
Lylia looks like she was about to say something to Pukk, but she hesitates, obviously having changed her mind.
Xorus asks, "The purpose of this expedition into the Bleaklands is to slay the witch?"
Thrayzar says, "Slay her...I cannot say."
Thrayzar says, "I killed her myself once."
Xorus says, "Killing her would be one thing. Keeping her dead another entirely."
Aerthelion heartily says, "You killed her and she didn't stay dead? Neat trick, that."
Lyrna peers quizzically at Aerthelion.
Lyrna says, "We do it all the time."
Speaking quietly to Aerthelion, Elphieya says, "I've died twice today."
Lycurgus softly asks, "What should us, less experienced ones do? Will be be able to survive that chaos?"
Speaking unhelpfully to Lycurgus, Leafiara says, "If it makes you feel any better, I don't know if anyone but Roblar will survive everything the Bleaklands throws at us, never mind Raznel herself."
Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "Raelee, she survives just about everything....well...except walking to churches...she seems to always get lit on fire in those things."
Thrayzar says, "She uttered a curse against me and Drangell in her dying breath."
Thrayzar says, "Turning me into the orc I appear as now, and Drangell into a troll."
Speaking to Thrayzar, Pietra says, "Well at least she chose a nice color for you."
Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya says, "If all of us arrive there, it seems stealth and just gathering information might be hard to accomplish."
Thrayzar says, "She will be aware of us. If we are numbered five, or fifty."
Speaking deeply to Elphieya, Berost says, "Most folks from this town aren't know for being quiet an the like anyhow."


Log

Raznel Returns

Moving through a crowd, a woman with long soft golden hair can be seen, her shiny locks cascading down over her lustrous blue and silver robe. Light from the moon is captured in her azure eyes as she moves out of sight.

[later]

For a brief moment, the blonde-haired woman can be seen through the window of the Mayor's Office, but then steps out of sight.

[Moot Hall, Mayor Lylia's Office]

From a dais, the maoral desk and an ivory and velvet curule seat loom over two carved wooden chairs. Tapestry rugs cover the hardwood floor, their patterns complementing the arched windows flanking the desk. A stag's head stares at a panoramic fresco mounted opposite it. In a corner near the bar, a scarred witchwood perch rises to the high ceiling, while several feet away, a black iron stove rests against the west wall and is topped with a silver kettle. You also see a small maoral sideboard with some stuff on it, a maoral bookcase and a varnished modwir door.

Shinann gestures while calling upon the lesser spirits for aid...

Speaking to Thrassus, Juspera says, "You do have a crush on her, don't you."

Shinann gestures at Lylia.

The glazed look leaves Lylia.

Lylia tersely says, "She was here."

Lylia stands up.

Shinann asks, "Who?"

The voice of Leafiara amicably inquires, "Who?"

Puptilian asks, "Who is she?"

Xorus says, "Saraphene."

Lylia says, "Claimed the scarab that was beneath my skin."

Lylia nods at Xorus.

Lylia says, "You must have seen her when you looked in."

Puptilian asks, "Claimed?"

Shinann says, "She is dead."

The voice of Leafiara thoughtfully remarks, "Curious."

Lylia says, "Yes. Claimed."

Lylia says, "She is Raznel."

Lylia says, "Different faces, different names, same creature."

Xorus says, "So. She took the scarab back."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "And your blood with it."

Berkana says, "Oh, I was going to ask if you still had it."

Lylia says, "I did, until a moment ago."

Puptilian says, "While it was forced out of you, the blood can still be used."

Lylia says, "I am aware."

Berkana says, "Blood magic. Yay."

Speaking to Lylia, Shinann asks, "Did she say anything?"

Puptilian says, "Could speak with Stormy. She may be able to help ward you a bit from whatever it is."

Lylia says, "Only that she has come for what is hers..."

Berkana says, "I'm being facetious."

Lylia says, "And she thanked me for taking such good care of it."

Lylia says, "Arrogant witch."

Lylia impatiently asks, "Do you think blood magic is the only magic that exists, or the only means of warding someone from danger?"

Lylia growls, "I do not fear this creature or whatever she has planned next."

Speaking to Lylia, Berkana says, "For some, it's all they think of."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "I am only offering advice from one that has fought blood mages for the better of the last decade."

Lylia says, "And I am not going to cower and whine behind wards."

Berkana says, "And she sure toyed with the wrong person."

Balley softly asks, "Do we know who the woman was who was headed this way?"

Lylia says, "Raznel."

Luscale asks, "Ah, the bug witch is at it again?"

Puptilian says, "I know I am not one of your favorite people, I am simply trying to help."

Zosopage says, "Figured as much."

Lylia says, "She has taken it back."

Shinann says, "Looking like Thadston's ex-wife... who is dead."

Shinann says, "According to the mayor."

Lylia says, "She seems to be amused by wearing the faces of those she has killed or drained of blood."

Zosopage says, "Well at least it'd be easier to spot her that way."

Lylia says, "I trust you all know me, and you would all know a false-faced version of me by my speech. I am not so easily counterfeited as she might hope, if that is her goal."

Speaking amusedly to Lylia, Berkana says, "She's going to impersonate you? She won't get the demeanor correct."

Lylia replies, "No. I imagine not."

Luscale says, "I have a test, only the real you would know."

Lylia says, "I rather hope she tries. We threw a party with a similar theme not too long ago..."

Lylia asks, "Do you now?"

Luscale says, "What does a real friend do."

Lylia says, "I imagine Juspera could offer up some tests only the real me would know."

Speaking to Luscale, Lylia says, "Helps bury the bodies."

Juspera quietly says, "I'm sure I could come up with something."

Luscale says, "Indeed Mayor."

Xorus says, "She may have now done whatever it is she wished to not be interfered with by extorting you."

Lylia says, "Any of you would be able to ask a similar question, I believe. Something you know of the real me that no one else does."

Luscale says, "Though if details are forthcoming on some of those ways to know you, I might be inclined to listen."

Lylia quietly says, "If anything, it makes me realize how fortunate I am to have so many people who know me well."

Berkana says, "I could think of several somethings."

Lylia says, "I am grateful to all of you who were kind to me during this...regrettable incident."

Speaking to Xorus, Lylia asks, "She may have, but what would that be?"

Luscale asks, "So the issue is past?"

Luscale asks, "For the moment?"

Lylia says, "It would seem so."

Shinann says, "Or, just started..."

Lylia says, "She had me stunned. I could not act, though I had every intention of taking her on."

Juspera asks, "How did she stun you?"

Xorus says, "I would only be able to speculate."


Plans

(two nights later)

[Town Square Central]

This is the heart of the main square of Wehnimer's Landing. The impromptu shops of the bazaar are clustered around this central gathering place, where townsfolk, travellers, and adventurers meet to talk, conspire or raise expeditions to the far-flung reaches of Elanith. At the north end, an old well, with moss-covered stones and a craggy roof, is shaded from the moonlight by a strong, robust tree. The oak is tall and straight, and it is apparent that the roots run deep. You also see an herbal remedy donation bin and some stone benches with some stuff on it.

Through the light rain, a grey cloaked figure emerges from the dark of North Ring Road, heading towards Moot Hall. Perhaps it is a trick of the flashes of lightning in the sky, but not once, but twice, the figure seems to flicker in and out of existence.

[Town Square, East]

Here in the center of a broad plaza near the commercial area of the bazaar stands the impressive facade of the slate-roofed Moot Hall, where the citizens of Wehnimer's Landing hold various official, religious and social functions. Facing the square are some of the town's more prosperous shops, still doing business with the many customers who still frequent the streets at night. You also see a pretty flower girl, a tiny kitten, a large purple wooden barrel and a bone-framed bulletin board. Also here: Shinann, Lord Sorlu who is hiding, Commander Roblar, Mistress Misara, Felita, Goldstr, Meggiemae, Falvicar, Sewer Scamp Ushakaron, Bernadette, Lady Authriea, Diamondelille, Tsarok, Pietra, Lady Lornieh, Lord Lycurgus, Yakushi, Ambassador Neopuron, Jokic, Pukk, Lady Tarine, Lady Mistyfall, Great Lady Katami, Master Eledryn, Thrayzar, Gylmour, Elphieya, Lyrna, Tanisstra, Envoy Leafiara, Berost, Conquerer of Reim Berkana, Vice Chancellor Xorus, Mayor Lylia

Obvious paths: north, east, south, west

Leafiara musingly says, "Perhaps Thrayzar's trying to get out and about."

Xorus asks, "Mm. Chronomage, or Thrayzar?"

Thrayzar just arrived.

Lylia nods to Leafiara.

Lylia says, "I would imagine it is --"

Speaking to Lylia, Berkana says, "Your office is very popular."

The clouds light up in an array of blue, white, and violet hues.

Thrayzar gazes up into the heavens.

Thrayzar sniffs.

Thrayzar bows.

Thrayzar weakly says, "Evening."

Thrayzar clears his throat.

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya asks, "Are you the cause of the storm or just coincidence?"

Leafiara greets, "Good evening! Are..."

Thrayzar peers quizzically at Elphieya.

Speaking concernedly to Thrayzar, Leafiara asks, "Are you quite alright, in this weather?"

Elphieya bites her lip.

Elphieya fidgets.

Thrayzar weakly says, "Coincidence."

Thrayzar says, "But not the first time."

Speaking warmly to Thrayzar, Lylia says, "Good evening to you as well. It is good to see you out and about."

Thrayzar nods to Leafiara.

Leafiara nods understandingly at Thrayzar.

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya says, "Bad weather for travel. And to stand around outside."

Speaking amicably to Thrayzar, Leafiara says, "Well, that's good."

Berkana asks, "Did we want to go inside and out of the storm?"

Thrayzar says, "Needed to stretch tonight."

Thrayzar says, "No. The rain feels nice."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lyrna says, "You do seem a bit better than the last time I saw you."

Thrayzar says, "I will not be about for long."

Thrayzar nods at Lyrna.

Speaking to Elphieya, Leafiara says, "See, I'm not the only one who likes the rain."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Elphieya says, "Try having wet wings."

Elphieya glances at Leafiara and pouts.

Elphieya flutters her wings before they droop tiredly.

Speaking to Leafiara, Eledryn says, "I am not unfond of it, though it wreaks havoc on the instruments."

Speaking to Elphieya, Gylmour says, "Thankfully, Rangers don't have wings."

Speaking to Elphieya, Leafiara acknowledges, "Oh... I suppose that would be a problem, yes..."

Pukk glances around the area.

Berkana says, "And the hair."

Pukk quietly asks, "No Sir Shiny?" [Pukk's nickname for Cryheart]

Thrayzar looks up, letting the rain hit his face. For a moment, half of his body flickers in and out of existence, but he doesn't seem to notice.

Pukk recites quietly:

"Everybody join Leafiara!"

Leafiara bemusedly says, "We're not even going anywhere. ...I think."

Thrayzar asks, "Sir Shiny?"

Speaking quietly to Pukk, Elphieya says, "For once you might be right."

Tanisstra softly says, "Leafi likes the rain because she wears white clothing of thin material..."

Pietra says, "Of the Cryblob."

Thrayzar says, "Ah."

Thrayzar nods.

Speaking quietly to Elphieya, Pukk says, "Scary, isn't it."

Speaking quietly to Pukk, Elphieya says, "More terrifying than the storm."

Thrayzar says, "I do not see the Captains about, perhaps they are meeting with Thadston. Or will."

Thrayzar says, "He's been quite busy lately training with Casiphia."

Lyrna says, "I have not seen them this evening."

Leafiara comments, "Shinann wanted to meet with him last night, but he wasn't--" [Err... two nights ago, rather.]

Speaking to Lylia, Berkana says, "Well, not like the red rain of a few years ago."

Leafiara knowingly says, "Ah, I figured on his training. He wants revenge on the witch, after all."

Lylia says, "Not unless Grishom Stone decides to pay a visit."

Thrayzar says, "I wanted to bring some information, regardless."

Thrayzar nods to Leafiara.

Thrayzar says, "We all do."

Speaking to herself, Berkana says, "Careful what you wish for..."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk whispers aloud, "I really like Thrayzar's pouch."

The flower girl asks, "Care to buy some flower petals?"

Lylia darkly says, "He is not the only one who seeks recompense."

Speaking quietly to a pretty flower girl, Elphieya says, "Not now."

Lyrna asks, "You said you bring news?"

Thrayzar says, "I know Thadston intends to pen a missive to the militia, and likely to you as well Mayor."

Goldstr says, "Hail friends."

Thrayzar nods at Lylia.

Lylia nods at Thrayzar.

Bernadette softly says, "Hail Goldstr."

Thrayzar says, "But we're all in agreement, any action will require all we can get."

Berkana says, "Nice to see the Gryphons."

Lylia says, "Now that I am free of Raznel's little gift, I would imagine I am welcome to attend militia meetings again."

Thrayzar says, "Within a month, we're going to the Bleaklands. And we will need everyone we can get."

Lylia adds, "It was, of course, a wise precaution to keep me from them."

Lylia says, "Excellent."

Berkana says, "A journey."

Thrayzar says, "The militia is not the only ones who need to be trained and ready."

Speaking to Lylia, Berkana says, "New wardrobe."

Lyrna asks, "What kind of training will we need?"

Commander Roblar just arrived.

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Pukk asks, "Will there be death and dismemberment?"

Speaking to Roblar, Pietra says, "We're going to the Bleaklands."

Thrayzar says, "We will need everyone trained. Prepared. Ready to work together and quickly switch strategies depending on what we encounter in the Bleaklands, and against Raznel."

Eledryn asks, "Legends and lore?"

Roblar deeply asks, "Tonite?"

Speaking to Roblar, Pietra says, "No, in a month."

Thrayzar says, "It won't come as a surprise to her."

Thrayzar says, "So we'll need to be ready for the dangers of the land, and the witch."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia says, "No, I imagine little does come as a surprise to her."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Death, destruction and mayham....sounds fun!"

Roblar deeply says, "Watch out for big thing in sky."

Thrayzar asks, "I trust you can all help with that?"

Pietra asks, "The witch?"

Leafiara asks, "And it's just as dangerous as before, or perhaps moreso, I take it?"

Speaking to Pietra, Lylia says, "Raznel."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Neopuron asks, "What kind of dangers?"

Thrayzar shrugs at Leafiara.

Speaking to Thrayzar, Goldstr says, "Aye Sir."

Lylia says, "Or Naimorai, or Saraphene, or...well. She wears many names and faces. It is all the same fractured mind behind them all, however."

Shinann just arrived.

Speaking to Lylia, Pietra says, "Sounds intriguing. But not in a good way."

Shinann bows to Thrayzar.

Speaking to Shinann, Lylia says, "Ah, good to see you, Captain."

Pukk quietly asks, "Saraphenia?"

Thrayzar bows to Shinann.

Bernadette softly says, "Cap'n."

Thrayzar says, "Captain."

Pukk quietly says, "I know her."

Speaking amusedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "No, Saraphene."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Shinann says, "Hello, Marshal."

Speaking to Pietra, Goldstr says, "Nuttin in a good way wid da Witch."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "What I said...Saraphenia."


A History of Thrayzar

Thrayzar says, "She wore many faces, even when I first went to kill her."

Thrayzar says, "And..."

Thrayzar touches the red fur along his arm.

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia asks, "What can you tell me about the scarabs she...embeds in people?"

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Pukk says, "They bite...and are usually bad for them."

Thrayzar says, "I do not know."

Tsarok quietly says, "One bit me and my fingers flew off in a fit of joy."

Thrayzar says, "The scarabs were never provided to us in our briefing before we tried to assassinate her."

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "Fortunately, she reclaimed mine, but of course, this is undoubtedly its own kind of bad news as well."

Pukk quietly asks, "You had a scarab in you?"

Pukk quietly asks, "Is that why you were always grumpy?"

Lyrna asks, "You missed that?"

Speaking quietly to Lylia, Elphieya asks, "The night the ground erupted with bugs?"

Pietra says, "The night of the exploding pustules."

Pietra says, "That was something."

Lylia says, "Yes, or near that time."

Xorus says, "It was the night after."

Aerthelion heartily says, "That sounds absolutely horrible."

Pukk quietly says, "I probably missed it...that explains why the mayor was always in a bad mood."

Xorus says, "Perhaps two nights after."

Lylia briskly says, "No matter. I endured it. One does what one must."

Lyrna says, "It was worse than it sounds."

Aerthelion heartily says, "Bugs and pustules. Lovely."

Pukk quietly says, "Now the mayor will want everybody to smooch and cuddle her."

Aerthelion heartily says, "And an orc."

Speaking to Pukk, Lylia says, "As is tradition among the Faendryl."

Pukk agrees with Lylia.

Pukk snuggles up to Lylia.

Lylia looks like she was about to say something to Pukk, but she hesitates, obviously having changed her mind.

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia says, "We shall be ready."

Speaking quietly in Elven to Aerthelion, Falvicar says, "Try to not let it bug you."

Speaking to Aerthelion, Goldstr asks, "Ye nae met our Marshall?"

Thrayzar nods.

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Pukk says, "I will be behind everybody and cheering them on and maybe throwing a punch or two."

Xorus asks, "The purpose of this expedition into the Bleaklands is to slay the witch?"

Aerthelion heartily says, "I am no elf, Falvicar."

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Pukk says, "If Madmountan is there...I will be behind him."

Speaking to herself, Meggiemae asks, "Our marshall is an orc?"

Thrayzar says, "Slay her...I cannot say."

Aerthelion heartily says, "An orc."

Thrayzar says, "I killed her myself once."

Speaking to Meggiemae, Leafiara explains, "It's a--well, not a long story, but a story."

Bernadette softly says, "What of it."

Xorus says, "Killing her would be one thing. Keeping her dead another entirely."

Speaking amusedly to Aerthelion, Pietra says, "It takes all kinds. Apparently."

Speaking simply to Meggiemae, Leafiara says, "A curse."

Meggiemae asks, "I mean how does that sit with those of us that are in the Guardians of Sunfist?"

Lycurgus softly asks, "What should us, less experienced ones do? Will be be able to survive that chaos?"

Aerthelion heartily says, "You killed her and she didn't stay dead? Neat trick, that."

Speaking to Leafiara, Meggiemae says, "Ahh a curse."

Speaking quietly to Lycurgus, Pukk says, "Critter fodder for us."

Speaking quietly to Lycurgus, Elphieya says, "I would guess not."

Lyrna peers quizzically at Aerthelion.

Lyrna says, "We do it all the time."

Speaking quietly to Aerthelion, Elphieya says, "I've died twice today."

Speaking unhelpfully to Lycurgus, Leafiara says, "If it makes you feel any better, I don't know if anyone but Roblar will survive everything the Bleaklands throws at us, never mind Raznel herself."

Speaking to Elphieya, Gylmour says, "There can be honor in death."

Aerthelion heartily asks, "So she has clerics?"

Lylia says, "Rather, she does not need a cleric's attention."

Lyrna says, "It is not so simple to keep someone dead if they truly do not wish to be and have the ability to avoid Goseana's attention."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "Raelee, she survives just about everything....well...except walking to churches...she seems to always get lit on fire in those things."

Speaking quietly to Aerthelion, Elphieya says, "Some can raise themselves. I've seen some in the Landing accomplish it."

Lyrna says, "There are ways to do so."

Speaking offhandedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "I've seen her die there, I'm pretty sure."

Aerthelion heartily says, "I am young but I will fight."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia asks, "And what happened after you killed her?"

Thrayzar says, "We thought her dead once yet."

Thrayzar says, "She uttered a curse against me and Drangell in her dying breath."

Thrayzar says, "Turning me into the orc I appear as now, and Drangell into a troll."

Aerthelion heartily says, "Pukk turns into a girl."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Pietra says, "Well at least she chose a nice color for you."

Speaking tentatively to Thrayzar, Elphieya asks, "Forgive me. I have not lived in the Landing long. What were you before?"

Pukk quietly says, "Oh you are actually a orc...I thought you were trying to look like Roblar."

Thrayzar says, "She was one of the last threads were were dispatched to silence."

Thrayzar says, "Before in time they tried to silence us."

A tiny kitten arrives, dodging the many trampling feet.

Thrayzar says, "A human."

Thrayzar nods.

Speaking to Meggiemae, Gylmour says, "Perhaps learning the fighting ways of a cursed Orc will help you in your ventures with the Guardians."

Thrayzar nods at Elphieya.

Speaking to Gylmour, Meggiemae says, "There is a thought, I must ponder."

Pukk quietly says, "On yeah the guardians."

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Pukk says, "Stay away from Zul...they won't like you there."

Thrayzar flickers briefly.

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya says, "Are you...okay? You seem to be not fully in this realm."

Thrayzar says, "We had been primarily warned of her summoning arts of the undead, and her divination."

Speaking quietly to a tiny kitten, Pukk exclaims, "Gov'ner!"

Speaking to Gylmour, Meggiemae says, "Otherwise, there is a conflict within me."

Thrayzar says, "I am better."

Thrayzar nods at Elphieya.

Speaking softly to Lyrna, Tanisstra asks, "The Guardians of the Gal Lexi?"

Speaking quietly to a tiny kitten, Pukk says, "It's okay. That mean ole Berkana can't eat you here."

Shinann says, "I have been watching him. Though I do not know much about this magic."


Thadston's Intent

Thrayzar says, "I do not know what Thadston fully intends to accomplish with the trip to the Bleaklands."

Xorus says, "It would seem now she had an unfair advantage in knowing her own future events."

Lyrna asks, "Do you have an idea of when he might brief us?"

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia says, "Divination, or spying? The scarabs...I am not certain why she took it back from me, or what purpose she had in afflicting me with it."

Thrayzar says, "There is nothing new that makes me think we can end Raznel suddenly. I suspect he wants to know more of what is transpiring, what she is up to."

Lylia says, "An advantage she has largely lost."

Lyrna says, "It does depend on what she wanted. Blood can be a useful tool."

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya asks, "Is a full assault the best way to accomplish that?"

Speaking to Thrayzar, Gylmour asks, "A bit of reconnaissance perhaps?"

Thrayzar says, "I do not believe it will be a full on assault. But the land is dangerous."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Goldstr says, "I tinks lookin fer Disean his son also."

Thrayzar nods at Goldstr.

Lylia disdainfully says, "Blood magic is a blunt instrument. A powerful bludgeon, but not the ideal tool for all situations."

Bernadette softly says, "Aye."

Thrayzar says, "Casiphia has provided me with some of Disean's belongings."

Thrayzar says, "I will aid where I can to help find him."

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya says, "If all of us arrive there, it seems stealth and just gathering information might be hard to accomplish."

Lyrna asks, "And yet, could it not provide a link to you of strength as the scarab itself did?"

Thrayzar says, "She will be aware of us. If we are numbered five, or fifty."

Thrayzar says, "It won't matter."

Lylia says, "Stealth is already lost to us, I feel fairly certain."

Speaking musingly to Elphieya, Leafiara says, "Maybe more like... getting information about her methods by seeing what she throws at us."

Speaking deeply to Elphieya, Berost says, "Most folks from this town aren't know for being quiet an the like anyhow."

Thrayzar says, "Numbers will only serve to help us protect ourselves better."

Thrayzar says, "There is not much we can use against her yet, without her seeing us."

Thrayzar says, "Yet."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Elphieya says, "That makes some sense."

Thrayzar says, "She has been snuck up on before."

Aerthelion heartily asks, "How did that go?"

Thrayzar says, "I was cursed by her dying breath."

Thrayzar smirks.

Speaking quietly to Aerthelion, Elphieya says, "I think he ended up an orc."

The flower girl nudges you and whispers, "These are magical flowers!"

Speaking quietly to Thrayzar, Elphieya says, "So you're saying it went well."

Thrayzar says, "But we surprised her, regardless."

Speaking deeply to a pretty flower girl, Ushakaron says, "Not the time, leave now."

Thrayzar says, "I am seeing what can be done to inquire as to the original method."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Leafiara clarifies, "But that was years ago, yes? She might only be more powerful now."

Bernadette softly says, "Might give us time to plan."

Lylia says, "More powerful, but less able to see what is to come."

Thrayzar says, "Unfortunately, while I was a deadly weapon wielded, my masters were not always forthcoming in HOW they aided us."

Speaking flatly to Leafiara, Elphieya says, "You are probably right."

Thrayzar says, "It was decades ago."

Xorus says, "This death defiance of hers likely inheres in whatever she has done to her blood."

Aerthelion heartily says, "That's a long time."

Thrayzar says, "I do not even know if any Thorns remain alive."

Leafiara curiously asks, "Thorns?"

Thrayzar says, "I may be the last."

Thrayzar seems to pause for a moment, carefully considering his words, but then nods.

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "Sharp parts of flowers..."

Speaking surprisedly to Leafiara, Elphieya says, "I thought you knew everything..."

Speaking slowly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Right."

Thrayzar says, "It does me no harm to be transparent."

Thrayzar says, "The Ivory Thorns."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Pukk says, "Ivory thorns....white sharp parts of flowers."

Speaking wryly to Elphieya, Leafiara remarks, "Yeah... and I thought Rysus did, but that went well."

Thrayzar grins at Lylia. [OOC: assuming a whisper exchange since a lot of time had passed since her last line]

Speaking to Thrayzar, Goldstr says, "Beens many many moons."

Thrayzar says, "But I stand with Thadston in agreement."

Thrayzar says, "We are done waiting for her trouble to come to us."

Thrayzar says, "It is time she begin reacting to our moves."

Meggiemae says, "That sounds wise."

Pukk quietly exclaims, "Down with the halflings!"

Thrayzar flickers in and out for a moment.

Lylia says, "I am so glad you agree."

Speaking quietly to Pukk, Elphieya says, "Wrong rally."

Thrayzar says, "I should rest."

Pukk quietly says, "Sorry."

Thrayzar says, "This is the longest I've been out in months."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Lylia says, "It is so good to see you out and about."

Leafiara encouragingly says, "You do seem to be getting better."

Bernadette softly says, "Tis good to see ye at any rate."

Speaking softly to Pukk, Tanisstra says, "I'm down with the halflings, they gots grate tarta."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Goldstr says, "Rest well ole friend. We shall be ready."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Meggiemae says, "You do look, not like yourself."

Lyrna says, "Thank you for bringing us some word."

Speaking softly to Pukk, Tanisstra says, "I'm down with the halflings, they gots great tarts."

Speaking to Thrayzar, Shinann says, "Drink that med... umm.. tea I left you."

Thrayzar grins.

Diamondelille says, "Good to see Thrayzar ok."

A Wehnimer's runner just arrived on her way to deliver a message.

Speaking quietly to Shinann, Pukk whispers aloud, "Good cover."

Speaking teasingly to a Wehnimer's runner, Leafiara asks, "Got the missive from Thadston already?"

Shinann says, "He knows anyway."

Thrayzar looks at a wall of the Moot Hall and seems to be pondering something, but then winces and shakes his head.

Thrayzar says, "Too soon to try that."

Thrayzar says, "Goodnight all."

Thrayzar waves.

Thrayzar just went north.
