    Upward from Land's End

    Posting for @Dana McCoyAntapkos smiles at the angry words of his friend. It is the most emotion he has ever seen him display. He drops his skiff pole on the bottom of the boat, allowing his skiff to begin to drift. Most javelineers are known to be bullies, but having his life threatened, he...

    Upward from Land's End

    Posting for @Eitan Olevsky Cormorant lifts his pole and drops it in his skiff, allowing the boat to begin to drift. If hostile action is initiated by one of the guards, he intends to fall onto the edge of their skiff, trying to capsize it. He thinks to himself, ~I see where the girl got her bad...

    TUW: The Outpost

    Moving inland, eastward, away from the river, the three men give the wolverines a wide passage, having concluded that there is no reason to engage them. After an appropriate distance has been decided the journey continues back toward the road for the remainder of the day. By late afternoon...

    TUW: The Outpost

    Posting for @Waynan Raven Elk takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly, quietly. He turns to Taylar, commenting in Markidian. "You have a point. These beasts are dangerous to people, but I know of no incident involving a community. Let's give them a wide circumference."

    Some Stories Are True

    Oorvid shrugs at the question from Astrid. "Unfortunately, I do not have my father's talent with metal; but since it is so light in color, I am going to guess that it is aluminum, which is used to make the alloy mostly used in arrowheads and javelin blades, called Ularin." During his sleep...

    Some Stories Are True

    Posting for @Osthelerin Hawke Cheerful in his present company and enjoying the peaceful moments of their exploration, Hiroshi greets the other who woke before him, stretches, washes his face in the pool, and goes to check on the productivity of the snares from the night before.54

    Upward from Land's End

    There are two guards per skiff. The Ansylin is in the back of the one butted up against Cormorant's. He grips his skiff pole to control his ire and eases the skiff sideways to have a better view of Antapkos, across the way. "As it so happens, this particular girl is my daughter. No one need pay...

    Upward from Land's End

    Posting for Player 2Always a bit more antagonistic, Antapkos cannot help but prod the guard a bit, even though he suspects that it is a bad idea. "Has someone paid you to look into a missing Flats resident. Who has that kind of coin?"85

    Upward from Land's End

    Posting for Player 1Cormorant plants his pole to steady his skiff. He shows no expression on his face as he speaks. "I thought all of us mud cakes were the same to you. I cannot image why you would be asking after one. Even if I had seen her, I do not know if I would know her."86

    Upward from Land's End

    Cormorant can intuit nothing concerning the teal but keeps some tail feathers and the skull, anyway. Taking the tenday and skipping the monotonous labor of picking, cutting, or digging, the two young men pole their skiffs for half a day before stopping in some random cut to drop the trap and...

    Some Stories Are True

    Not so suited to active hunting or attuned to nature to best set snares, Oorvid mills about looking for objects of interests, not realizing that the skill set for both is the same. Active Search: This represents the desire to locate a living creature in its environment or hidden by concealment...

    Some Stories Are True

    Posting for @Osthelerin Hawke Nodding at the simple request, Hiroshi gathers some wood and encourages Astrid to ignite it, not yet fully aware that it would be a simple thing for him to do, as well. He then examines the area to determine likely places to set some snares. If daylight permits, he...

    Some Stories Are True

    For player characters, who can all sense waylines, the mechanics for wariness are the same at night while sleeping or awake, since people cannot see very well at night. Player characters do not have to set watches. Everyone can sleep. A surprise chance will be the same either way. Oorvid takes...

    Some Stories Are True

    Posting for @Tellerian Hawke Wrenn takes one of the pairs of teeth to examine, some snares, and pouches. He smells some of the dried meat and discards it, making a sour face at the experience. Without saying a word, he follows along with the others. The pep in his step indicative of his desire...

    Some Stories Are True

    Posting for @Osthelerin Hawke Hiroshi stores two of his javelins, keeping one in each hand. He looks over at the comment from Astrid. "I know not of what gods you may speak, but I think as monsters might be better phraseology. I have seen beasts with better dispositions. Those people could not...
