A fire burned tonight upon the Moei Mound, though its light paled in comparison to the lost life it symbolizes.
Ornith’s Funeral Pyre at the Moei Mound
The denizens of Eyr said goodbye to one of their own tonight; Ornith fell in a skirmish Monday night with Ebon Reach. To honor her life and memory, a pyre was constructed, and the shell that had once held the bright soul was cremated.
Ornith was many things to all of us – friend, mentor, beloved, wife, and Myan. Her calm demeanor diffused many tense moments, and her wisdom and caring oft times brought out the better side of those she spent time with.
It was hard not to like the quiet cleric, and so it is with heavy hearts that we gathered to wish her farewell.
The Moei Asing are not left completely leaderless, as Khanya Silongo and Juni Gynn will be doing their best to keep the faction going. Juni, representing the two Verdicts at the funeral, informed those gathered that she and Khanya will be filling in until Ame chooses another leader for the faction. She also issued a statement that, until further notice, anyone swearing fealty to the imp of Ebon Reach will not be welcome in Tilikambo.
Eyr’s had a lot of new people lately! Some are even dressed up very fancy! I had heard that
Honorable Lihen at her home garden
one of the new people was a Princess and she was visiting us for only a short time. I’ve never seen a Princess before, but Ornith knew her and was very happy to see her.
I don’t know a whole lot about these new fancy people, but I have seen them, wandering about Eyr as if they are looking for something, or someone. When I’ve gone up to talk to them, they talk as if I’m not even there. I am a little short, so they might not see me. Continue reading
I have been in the jungle for awhile now, and made friends recently with a newcomer to our lands. I like her. We get a long great. There’s only one fly in the ointment. She eats everything. And when I say everything, I don’t mean she eats all of my food, which she does, but she also eats everyone else’s food as well, and she seems to want to eat everyone as well! Even lately, she has started to look at me like I am a prized boar instead of a friend. What am I supposed to do ?

I’ve been trying to get into this group. I’ve started with a voice coach to perfect my evil laugh; I’ve successfully pulled off minor raids and such in an attempt to prepare the way for me to take over the world … er I mean Eyr. I have goals, I have a timeline, but these goody-two-shoes keep getting in my way! How do I get the attention of this group while at the mercy of these … nemesis-wannabes ?

I am mildly miffed at the magical missives my mentor is leaving. I feel marooned, awash in a morass of misgivings. They are magical things, meant only for me, but I can’t help but feel misled. Mayhaps I have done wrong? More often than not, he can no longer make time for me. Please, make known to me what must be done to mend this mishap!

I recently encountered a young coatl. I had never seen one before but the creature was quite handy at rat catching. Made short work of several rats about the docks in a matter of minutes I can see the benefit of encouraging such a creature to return. The docks provide an easy meal for the coatl who seemed quite happy with the arrangement. But I am unfamiliar with Coatls. And the creature laughed when I inquired of growth and predatory instincts. I feel the creature was joking but how am I to tell? I feel a need for more information. How ‘large’ will the coatl grow and will it’s predatory instincts turn toward larger prey? How large are we talking? Would I be better off chasing the creature off before I become the ‘easy meal?’
~ Curious About Coatls
I hadn’t been in the jungle very long when I began to notice something quite… unmistakable in my day-to-day dealings with the people who live here in Eyr. At first, I didn’t notice it. Then it was easy to put down to other smells. After a time though, I had to just admit it, I was surrounded by body odor! I did think that perhaps it was me, but I found and started making use daily of the Bath House. If I found it, as new as I am, why are others not using it? Is this something I should accept and adapt to? Will my olfactory senses be constantly under assault? Please! Help me! I’m about ready to start wearing a perfumed sachet around my neck!
