the magical equivalent to the number zero
I posted before reading these last few posts. I guess Caerth will be joining the fight against the duergar next round.
It might've been more than a day ago in-game, while confronting a wererat who eventually told the party about the lair where they're now fighting the cultists, that two allies (NPCs) admitted to lying (or not telling everything). The allies are called Sir Balorix and Sir Ghal.@JustinCase I haven't read all of the previous stuff; please elaborate on how your "worldview was flipped" here in the OOC thread, so that I, as the player, can get a better idea of what's going on with Caerth. I will keep player knowledge separate from character knowledge, of course; but if I the player know more of Caerth's history, I can better understand the implications of Caerth's behavior, allowing me a more full use of irony when I write responses for Angus. Does that make sense?
post 1026 said:"You don't believe me," Sir Balorix adds with a grim look. "You don't even know who he really is, he's no druid, so how can you know every thought in his mind?"
"Sir Balorix, that is not your secret to tell," Sir Ghal insists.
"If 'Aeron' had any honor, he'd have told this young man who he truly is years ago," the older knight snaps back. "He owes him that much."
No, Caerth hasn't had the chance yet since Aeron helped take Lorien and the poisoned guard to Fort Symas (uhm, I think), which is roughly 36 miles west of Carnell on the highest hill of the Symas Hillocks. The hedge-druid couldn't completely heal either Lorien or the guard, although the poison was delayed. This means that Angus didn't have a chance to meet with Aeron, in person, before using the magical ring (that Aeron left for him along with a note) to fly out to Gurnard's Head. Aeron contacted Angus using magic to tell him that he wanted Angus to help Caerth.It might've been more than a day ago in-game, while confronting a wererat who eventually told the party about the lair where they're now fighting the cultists, that two allies (NPCs) admitted to lying (or not telling everything).

Caerth, as a half-orc druid unburdened by the trappings of civilisation and the white lies therein, got angry, even considering attacking these allies (IC post 1,025). In the end he didn't, as you can read in the posts thereafter, but an important detail they let slip is that Aeron, Caerth's mentor, is not who the druid thinks he is.
As far as I can read back, Caerth has not had a chance to confront Aeron yet. (Is that correct, @Knightfall ?)
But his old mentor is now a.. sensitive matter.
