Was trying to find out if could make one of the prophecies happen - but when I checked the dice and cards they were +2 for use so I thought I had to throw to use them

Sorry, not ignoring you, AR. I can go do a story post now.

I spent most of today at the clinic, and then at various medical testing places and pharmacies picking up scripts. I'm not dying, but I have finally accepted my NP-C's offer of a bed while I go through the treatment, and they figure out exactly what I've got going on. I don't know if I'll have wifi there (hope so!), but I should be able to check in on my phone. At least w*rk won't be getting the way of me posting!

OK outcome posted - was I not supposed to play dice with the dwarves?

<tangent>I've got a seriously mad week - guy I took to Hell a few times for being an incompetent prat walked out on Friday and I'm covering as much as I can around my own student because the kid doesn't deserve this, so 48 hours break is welcome.

Hart - does this mean you're not in Kenilworth on Sunday?</tangent>

I'm still in the infirmary, but I'm not super "sickly." I'm out of isolation now, so I can go downstairs and use the internet on the computers. I should be fine to post at least daily.

Mary heard a noise in the distance and turned in time to see a moving horde sweep along the road at great speed each on some strange two wheeled contraption. What race had such strange skins in different colors and patterns? Were they enchanted never to stop or were they fleeing some menace still to come? Was this the wild hunt? She wondered how they would fare when they hit the ford.

This is as good a time as any to review where we are and what we're up to. If I remember right, we're currently on our final rest day with the caravan. During the night, we will hit Cimenster. Once we get there, we have some accommodation sorted. As I understand, the party lacks the will to do anything further with the covered wagon.

We know (as players) that there is to be some sort of ceremony in the city after our arrival. Some kind of apotropaic sacrificial ceremony? If so, sacrifice of people, animals, grain, symbolic offering of salt? We have no idea.

We also know that Trepik's plans for us are not over. He plans to use knowledge of his association with us to his advantage, making him appear more trustworthy.

We should also expect Cimenster to have a very 'circling the wagons' feel to it, possibly very militarized.

We've also the execution place to pass and the party may have a place to stay in the city assuming we get in safely. Anyone for ravens?

BTW I doubt we will reach Cimenster after dark. Most wary cities probably close the gates at dusk except to those with close ties to the ruling power. But who knows.

BTW who is still playing the game ?

Net Spinster, Hart, Ariston & Autenreith Road have been very recently active.

JFH & Kelly are not posting and I assume are not playing - from CK's post I take it Curious Kitten is no longer playing.

Bannerlady was regular pre break.

Anti-social alto, are you still in ? Curiosity Killed - disappearing for a week may need to be NPC'd for a bit. Dafyd and Eliab are you still in ?

Yes, Curious Kitten is out - she hasn't quite gone but it's in the next few days.

I'll know by tonight if I am going on camp. I think I'm already too knackered to be safe in charge of 20 girls and I've got another week of teaching to go afterwards after an exhausting weekend.

Have been away for a few days, back just now for the next 36 hours, then away for 36 hours then back again. Carry on; I'll just lapse into snoring like a good little cyber pet when the owner is not around. Travelling obviously makes Clawdine quite sleepy.

OK - cough too evil to be sensible spending two nights sleeping in tent in field in rain, so I'm around.

I was saving use of the magic cups for going through the gate into Cimenster or dealing with the festival in whatever form that might be.

Was I supposed to roll for readiness? If so 15.

Antisocial Alto, I don't know of anything directly useful for Frithwynne to do either. So Frithwynne and I are amusing ourselves, and hopefully contributing to atmosphere and camaraderie, by wandering around talking to people.

I keep having the feeling that there's something significant about the caravan, why it's traveling at night, and what's in the fortified wagon, that we're supposed to find out and have been completely unable to discover. But I can't think of any other way to get at it that's consistent with our party's natures. As a result of not finding out, I'm expecting some horrible catastrophe to occur in Cimenster (and now we've created an execution ground, an ominous ceremony, and threats from the Sea Lord to add to the possible catastrophes) but even if a catastrophe that will give us more challenges to actively tackle.

I wonder if it's useful to think of things we can do with our Potentials, not limit ourselves to looking to apply just our more narrowly defined Skills.
