Curious Conversations

 

 

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

Death Floats above the Reef

There is a Shalan’ti craft moored above the Reef off of Eyr’s beaches.  The scent of death is so thick that even the sea air cannot dispell it.  I approached closer only because I felt that I had to.  I had heard the rumors at the tavern and felt that I needed to confirm for myself.

Shalan’ti Ship

The massacre happened days ago.  I call it a massacre for that is what it appears to have been.  Sunbleached bloodstains littered the ship’s decking with spots and smears leading off into the water.  There were few seagulls present. Not enough flesh left on the single remaining corpse to stir much interest.  I can only guess at human due to the exposed bones and desiccated skin. Clothing remnants were indistinguishable though I could tell that they had been made of silk fabric.

How and when did this happen?  I did note that there were marks on the walls where it appeared items had been removed.  I also found a shirt where buttons had been ripped off. And the dead man’s shoes were missing.  But then again so were most of his feet.  Robbery?  The ship had little cargo that I could see.   How many others have been witness to what happened here initially or during the ensuing days?

Eyr’s  waters have been peaceful since the sediment was cleared.   Who within our waters would do such a thing?  This is the Shalan’ti ship which carried the visitors.  How will they return? And are the waters safe?  Will there be reprisals against us?

We must learn more of what happened here.  Anyone with information is encouraged to step forward.

Deepers Channel The Serpent’s Magic to Clear the Waters!

kuvaris-deep-ceremonyMembers of Kuvari’s Deep met secretly on Saturday to gather around the cairn made by the various races of Eyr in an effort to help clear the waters.  Invocations and offerings made to the Serpent, Kuvari, so that he would lend his powers to their efforts.  Those that witnessed the event were awestruck and amazed.

Lightning struck the ocean waters over the cairn repeatedly as the currents quickened. I saw the Kuvari River actually reverse its’ current as a gigantic maelstrom swirled into existence.  All the silt laden water went swirling  toward the cairn.  It was amazing and I’m so proud that I was able to help.

Members of Kuvari’s Deep will be holding a ranking ceremony on Thursday (02/09/2017 evening at dusk (6PM SLT).  The ceremony is to recognize those Deepers who went above and beyond the call of duty to aid their kin and protect the waters.   T

deeper-work-crewThe Spear Bearer has also extended the invitation to those Landers that observed or participated in the cleanup efforts.   Both as a sign of good faith for their participation, but also as a sign of thanks for the significant amount of work that was done.  Anyone wishing to may stop by the beach and watch from the shoreline or paddle out to the Shalan’ti boat to observe firsthand.”

 

“We honor those that aided us as we recognize those of our own.  Everyone is welcome.”

Festival of the Seasonal Pot Overflows!

fishing

Competitors gather for Festival of the Seasonal Pot

Was time for Festival of the Seasonal Pot! Again. Happens at the end of every season. This time, we’s celebrating last days of Hutan Awan. Any day now, them clouds gonna let up and the sun will start shining on down through. Maybe even some of this rain will let up. Me old bones is looking forward to the warmer weather too! This cold air does not do well for the joints, believe you me.

Like always, the festival starts with three competitions for fishing, hunting, and gathering. That blasted rhyming satyr, Wanton Aime (alteripseity), he leads them folk out around various locations of this valley. They cast their rods, throw them spears, and pull at bushes when he says. Whoever comes up with the biggest pile of stuff after three rounds wins.

virlym

Virlym, Fishing Champion

Fishing tourney got off to a bit of a slow start with only Juni (pneema) the pixie and Virlym (blanche.fralto) that tiefling casting their lines. They both had a bit of a fair start, but was Virlym that won in the final round, pulling out the only decently sized fish of the competition!

Things hit a bit of snag when an unexpected guest showed up. Some stranger calling himself Morthis took credit for the recent bandit raid on Stormstead. Tried to provoke the village into giving them more stuff, but that rhyming satyr wouldn’t have it! Chancellor Wanton Aime said to them, Morthis and his kind ever show up in the village again, they all gonna get arrested. Ethan Vein (edwardclawhammer) was sent to capture that strange fellow, but as all to sllow. Morthis disappeared right fast! With so few guards protecting these huts, we’ll have to wait and see how good the Chancellor makes on his promise to keep these thieves out.

byron

Byron Risato, Hunting Champion

After fishing, everyone went off to the edge of the village to start hunting. Was Juni and Virlym again, and Ethan joined, but this time a new challenger appeared: Byron Risato (jackrockwell). Ethan and Virlym couldn’t keep up after the first round, leaving just Juni and Byron against one another! Juni maintained consistent hauls of decent sized critters, but Byron won the hunting competition due to a strong start!

eshindow

Eshindow, Gathering Champion

Lastly, there was the gathering competition. And this one got the biggest group of competitors out of all of them! Juni and Byron competed again, alongside Ganis (satyrgrey) and Eshindow (darwin.lemon). Wasn’t even a close match! Eshindow, that tall pale elf, he must of tapped into his sylvan roots for he sweeped all three rounds!

As is custom for Seasonal of the Festival Pot, all things gathered, hunted, and fished were brought back to the Salty Swallow. The staff there, they chopped and cooked everything up into a BIG POT OF STEW! Mushrooms, fish, boar, fiddlehead ferns, melons, and all manner of things found this season got all mixed together. Somehow, every season, everything comes out to be just right and tasty. Don’t know how it’s down, but I reckon it’s some kinda magic. Every bowl in the house was filled up and still, there was even a bit left over.

Congratulations to Virlym (blanche.fralto), Byron Risato (jackrockwell), and Eshindow (darwin.lemon) to coming out on top as the season’s best gatherers! Will they be able to hold onto their titles next season? The next Festival of the Seasonal Pot will tell.

I’m begining to Feel like Food – A Pixie’s Perspective

logo_a-pixies-persepective

Dear Juni,

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 ?

A cure hits the village. Thanks to the kind benefactors of the land!

So it would seem you’ve all been cured.  Isn’t that just fine and dandy?  I mean it! You’re lucky the Prince arrived on the scene just in time to do some good for your citizenry.  His coming to the village was well timed, no doubt.  No, that’s not a double entendre.  I’m sure he did it that way on purpose.  And no, not because he’s your likely scapegoat. No sirs and madams, he’s your savior! Ungrateful wretches if you believe otherwise.  Always casting blame for your injury on someone other than yourselves.  Years and years spent in this jungle, having your way with the land and the natives in it and then thinking you’d just cozy up and do what you like forevermore? Laughable arrogance.  

Perhaps the illness was wrought upon you by the gods who your former governor, the half drow, provoked to anger.  Some of your own people said he would! Provoke the gods to angry retribution. And yet no one is talking about that.  Well, I heard one person talking about it.  But everyone ignored her.  And blame cast its way right to the Imp.  Have you heard him talk? He’s so charming and eloquent.  Kind and benevolent.  I can’t imagine he’d do anyone any harm.  Not so much as the savage auspices of the former governor.  Or the wolf kin who prowl about the land losing control of themselves and tearing people to shreds.  Or the wayward arrows and “self defense” I’ve seen in the other citizenry of the village.  

Though I am not concerned by it at all.  Our Prince will protect us from such savagery and unwarranted violence.  He will hasten our hopes and plans for a better more productive and trade friendly jungle.  He’ll do the same for the natives and the merfolk.  The only ones out of the loop are the people who live in the village and no wonder they were infected with a serious ailment, they lack a healthy connection to the land! It rebelled against them.  As the natives always said it would.  

Really, someone should listen to the natives.  They’re very smart.  Gifted and inspired by their Mother goddess. Their efforts helped to cleanse the land of the vile blackness cast upon it by the indecency of the villagers. History repeating itself really.  Like they say, those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. Now that everything has been set to right by the combined efforts of the Reach and the Moei Asing – dragons put back to slumber, the illness of the black silt cured by the dragon’s own blood – seems to me, the future looks bright from here.  Even for the reckless villagers.  Surely they will benefit from the good work of the Prince and the Myan!

The rise of the black silt and the new Governor of Stormstead

dca92e40aa7be14bbeb2f26dda0c7a3b

There’s a black tint to the waters of late. Some say they were poisoned.  Others say it’s a natural ailment of the land.  What I do know is that the waters of Ohm are bleeding black silt and there’s only one way to find out the truth in the matter.  Find the dragon and ask her.  I know! It sounds ridiculous.  But you can’t poison the water without poisoning the dragon.  It’s her tears that flood the pools and mountain streams and cascade to the Kuvari below.  It’s the system of drinking water for the entire land really. Unless you dwell on the opposite side of the valley.  The pools there remain pristine.  It’s the legend of this land that concerns me of late.  First the fiery dragon of Azifix was roused from his slumber and now the groaning from the deep caves of Ohm.  So if she has been awakened as well, the stories hold true.  These old friends, Azifix and Ohm, though they had some falling out a millennia ago, are still stalwart companions, even in these troubled times.

6d6f13f61b9f736d6e74b6766db42d69

What trouble you ask?  Have you not seen them? Seen him?  The imp, they call him Lucky, he used to work in the bath house here in the village and now, now he’s someone of import, in the Ebon Reach! He’s come into the village with his band of rabble and he’s taken over the governor’s hut.  He has staked his claim as Governor! I’m no expert in village history, but actually I am! Just another bloke in the long line of blokes who come into the village and stake their claim over it all. What makes him any different than the rest?  Those who line their pockets with jewel studded finery and yet leave the village worse off than before they arrived, claiming they knew best for all.  They’ve been here for days now and yet nothing has changed.  They cozy up and take what they like, causing dismay throughout the village and yet, what have they done to aid us in our time of great need?

The sickness has pervaded the drinking water.  It’s everywhecd6f8b399936665de5765bdecff8798cre.  Or at least it seems to be.  It’s sickening to the tongue and awful are its symptoms.  Lesions and headaches and the terrible desire to give  in to its way.  To let it do as it will.  Though I’m not entirely certain what it wants or how I know it wants anything at all.  But I feel strongly that th
ere’s something more to this black silt than the awful fever and terrible pain I feel right now! The Imp and his crew promise a cure.  Though days have gone by and we still suffer.  Why does he make us wait for our salvation? Does he mean to enslave us all? What does it bode for Stormstead when the Myan of the Asing and several strong looking mer appear about the Governor’s hut in these trying days? Are they forming an alliance against us? We should rise up against them! We should take to the paths and to the governor’s hut and riot and demand what is due to us!   Though I feel, before long, there may be no strength left in us for a fight.  I may be hallucinating now, but there’s a deep groaning coming from Mt Ohm and a trembling in the ground beneath my feet.

I look to the mountain and I believe I hear the dragon’s roar.  She is sick they say, she needs to be healed.  But who will heal the great dragon of Ohm?  Who will purify the waters and bring us relief?  The new Governor? The citizenry? The Asing or the Kuvari? The Reach? Perhaps Hope here in her Medica can conjure up a cure? Or the strange fella in the swamps who does magic?

I look to the tavern and I see them, a line of folk walking along the path now.  I recognize some of them.  What are they going to do? They’re heading for the fishing dock. Do they march upon the Myconid cave? Perhaps there is hope yet! Or is it the sting of desperation that drives them? I hope something happens and soon! These lesions are so itchy and my fever grows worse.

– Henry, a very concerned and sick citizen of Stormstead, camped out at the medica.

Summoning of Azifix and Ohm

2-dragon-images-modifiedYesterday a faun approached me and asked me to record her tale.  She had witnessed something in one of the lava caves on Mt. Azifix.  I was skeptical until I realized she was speaking of the dragon which had soared down the length of the Kuvari and back toward Tilikambo.  I saw this clearly.  His wings darkened the sky over the river and his bellowing cut through the air.  He sailed down over the village and returned to the Great Tree.  The tales are true.  Azifix has been awakened.  And not by a false Myan as Clovis suspected, but by Ornith herself.

The ancient tale of the dragons speaks of both Azifix and Ohm.  Clovis spoke of seeing Ohm’s shadow setting atop her mountain.  Tonight I visited the Myconid Cave within the heart of Mt. Ohm with a friend.  Deep gouges and scratches line the walls and floors of the cavern and the scent of dragon lies heavy in the air.  Also found was a smattering of small bloodstains.  The size of them indicating that the wounds were very minor or that perhaps the blood is not from the dragon. The spongy earth of the mushroom cave making it difficult to tell as the walls digest organic matter.

We saw that Azifix has awakened.  And now I believe we have proof that Ohm has resurfaced.  As Clovis stated.  “An angry dragon is a vengeful and hungry thing.”  What then of two?    The Asings have been Stormstead allies since the time of Governor Jil.  Tensions escalated however when Governor Dar’kuss rose to power.  He not only physically attacked the Myan but sought to sever ties with members of the Moei Asing and of Kuvari’s Deep.

  • Has the Myan decided to sever the alliance and loose the dragons upon us?
  • What is the plan behind all of this?
  • Or is there someone in the shadows pulling the strings?

I think it is time to seek answers.
