  Encounters for Z'leyra

  [Note first 2 months of encounters were with Ben'dar.  See
   Ben'dar's encounters for those shared encounters.  These
   include the last month of the 90 days for Z'leyra alone.]

  [All occur in Sivas at her home or at the city proper.]

  Encounter #1 - Night 61 - 11:10pm

     [Z'leyra is awaken to pounding on door.  She goes to it
      and finds 6 Marentian patrolmen in full uniform, armor
      and weapons.  Their leader asks to inspect the house
      since there are some escaped felons in the area from
      a local prison break.  By sheer will of presence Z'leyra
      doesn't have much choice.  The search is quick and they
      apologize for any trouble.]

  Encounter #2 - Day 62 - 5:59am

     [Z'leyra up early goes outside for some air when she notices
      two wagons near her property on the dirt road.  It looks
      like a band of 8 travellers on both wagons laughing and
      talking and one or two playing flutes.  Seems to be a happy
      bunch of travellers for such a ungodly early hour.]

  Encounter #3 - Night 62 - 1:57am

     [Z'leyra is awaken to noise in another room.  She grabs
      her staff and goes to investigate in the darkness.  She
      hears someone going through stuff or drawers.  Must be
      some criminal.  She listens a few minutes to see if there
      might be others but so far only seems to be one eprson.
      If she takes the time to light something the criminal could
      attack her so she takes the chance to inch forward to whack
      the criminal.  She swings her staff and hits the figure
      who yelps and Z'leyra realizes its a female.  The figure
      staggers back then falls down.  Still cautious and alert
      Z'leyra goes to the wall and ignites a candle.  She sees
      a female human on the ground and carefully checks her and
      finds she is knocked out.  She must be in her late upper
      teens maybe near 20.  A thief Z'leyra surmises and goes
      to find rope and ties her up.  She knows its about 4 hours
      before daylight but figures its good enough time now.  She
      goes and readies her horse and throws the female on one
      horse and she mounts another horse.  She carefully winds
      down to the local guard house and puts in a report on the
      incident.  The guards return days later to inform she was
      jailed for the offense and seems she was a orphan.  She
      almost got into the local Thieves guild but when you caught
      her that ruined her chance.  Which means she may seek
      revenge some day.  

  Encounter #4 - Day 64 - 5:56pm

     [On a city errand Z'leyra stops and haves dinner at a local
      tavern.  After the dinner she heads home as the sun starts
      to set.  As she enters the deserted road she crosses several
      streets and then turns down a side road which leads to her
      place.  The only one on the street is a old man lighting
      city torch lights.  Soon she finds herself alone and is
      thinking of plans for tomorrow.  Slightly distracted she
      is started when two men jump from behin a large bush and
      stop in front of her.  They brandish long daggers and
      ask for her coin bag.  Nicely for thuss at least.  Z'leyra
      steps back and swings wildly her staff at one man but misses.
      Both lunge and swing daggers.  One fails to hit her but
      the other knicks a arm for 3 points.  Z'leyra swings again
      and hits for 8 points one man.  Another male misses but
      the second hits for a plunging stab doing 6 points of
      damage to Z'leyra.  She dodges the first male but the second
      hits but doesn't penetrate armor.  Z'leyra swings on the
      second male and smacks the man in the shoulder doing 13
      points sending him to the ground.  The other first male
      wounded sees this and decides no hornor among thieves and
      runs for it.  Z'leyra kneels on the street and assesses
      her wound.  One is minor but the other is a nice half inch
      puncture.  Luckilly to no vital part.  Z'leyra has no healing
      products so casts healing on the puncture wound and complely
      heals it (all 6 points).  This leaves just the knick on the
      arm (the 3 point scratch).  She continues home and then
      treats that wound.  She reports the death of the thug to
      a local patrolmen and gives her statement.  

  Encounter #5 - Day 67 - 4:18pm

     [Z'leyra is in a herbalist shop collecting some samples
      she may need when suddenly she feels something on her
      legs.  Looking down she spots 2 cats circling her legs.
      The shop owner explains they are friendly.  But quite
      suddenly Z'leyra starts to sneeze.  This fit gets
      stronger and stronger as if shes allergic to the cats.
      The shopowner gets the cats taken into a different room
      and the sneezing stops.  Z'leyra is amazed to learn
      something new about herself.]

  Encounter #6 - Night 70 - 8:24pm

     [While doing a supply run in a Sivas market a Guard
      confronts Z'leyra and interrogates her.  Seems there
      is a report of someone looking like her passing off
      stolen goods.  After about 15 minutes the guard is
      convinced its not Z'leyra and he leaves the area.]

  Encounter #7 - Day 72 - 4:51pm

     [A group of 5 Merchants approach the manor house of
      Z'leyra.  They seek a meeting with her.  They have
      heard rumors of her interest in doing a school of healing
      and learning.  The merchants wish to work with her on
      this if they can arrange certain merchanting trade agreements
      like exclusive rights for medical supplies, medical magical
      items, etc.  Z'leyra considers some of this as a start and
      decides to meet with the group once every few days to
      iron out details for her future school.]

  Encounter #8 - Day 74 - 9:02am

     [A band of travellers in two wagons stop near the property
      of Z'leyra's manor and ask for help in treating a wound
      for 2 kids who got hurt by a boar in the mountains.  Z'leyra
      helps to treat their wounds which aren't serious.  The
      travellers, Bhamotin, head back to their homeland.]

  Encounter #9 - Night 74 - 11:10pm

     [Z'leyra is awaken to dogs barking in the distance and
      flicker of lights out the window.  In the distance a
      group of figures on horse back with dogs are moving about
      in the area as if looking for someone.  Two of the figures
      enter the property and knock on the front door.  A serant
      answers it and Z'leyra hears the conversation.  Seems they
      are a group (8) patrolmen searching for a murderer i nthe
      area that killed a gal on the street that afternoon.  They
      advise to stay indoors for the next day or so.]

  Encounter #10 - Day 75 - 6:30pm

     [When Z'leyra goes to town to meet Xian and Farseeker for
      dinner they encounter 3 loud drunks in the bar that make
      a scene.  The drunks try to bustle Z'leyra and make her
      dance but Farseeker and a bouncer escort them out of the
      tavern and they get back to their dinner.]

  Encounter #11 - Day 82 - 11:59am

     [While Z'leyra is preparing to sit down for lunch a servant
      rushes in and explains theres a mob outside about a mile
      north of the property on a side street.  Z'leyra gets outside
      nad mounts up alert to a possible mob might damage her estate.
      She quietly seeks the group out to see what they are doing.
      When she gets there a group of 20 peasants are throwing stones
      at a man and kicking him.  Based on their yells and jeers
      it seems this is the murderer the patrolmen were seeking
      previously.  The man is near death.  The mob decides to
      string him up on a tree when Z'leyra confronts the group.  Her
      duty as a healer and her duty to justice makes her try to
      convince the peansants to call the city guard and not kill the
      man in vigilante justice.  A servant rushes off to go find
      a guard or guards.  Z'leyra speaks for 5 minutes using her
      Rhetoric skills and finally persuades all but 3 peasants to
      give up their attacks on the man.  The three apparently are
      not wanting to be convinced.  By then guards arrive and help
      subdue the group.  z'leyra sees to the man but the guards
      throw him on a wagon before sh ecan treat the injured man.
      They rush him to the city jail to be seen by a healer and
      explain he shouldn't be in the area with the hostile mob
      much longer.  Z'leyra returns to her home while the mob

  Encounter #12 - Day 83 - 8:56am

     [Z'leyra is working in the yard when she notices a large
      group of military men, a army really of maybe a 100 men,
      in the hills near her place.  They seem to be doing some
      form of military training or exercises.]

  Encounter #13 - Night 85 - 5:23am

     [Z'leyra is awaken to a lot of barking again.  This time
      She enters the yard with a sleepy servant and finds a pack
      of 9 dogs of various sizes and breeds in the yard tearing
      up the herb garden.  Both the servant and Z'leyra try to
      scare off the dogs.  All but one scares off but after a
      show of force it finally does.]

  Encounter #14 - Day 86 - 1:33pm

     [While Z'leyra is working to fix the herb garden she hears
      baying noises and turns to find a mule about 20 feet
      near her home baying at her and grazing.  She tries to
      kick the mule off her property but finds him to be a very
      stubborn animal.  About 10 minutes later a peasant farmer
      rushes up and apologizes that the mule got away from him
      and hes been chasing it for some time now.]

  Encounter #15 - Night 87 - 12:26am

     [Two days after the first time Z'leyra is awakened by a servant
      when 5 more dogs are found in the garden.  Again they are
      scared off.  Z'leyra considers maybe a indoor garden in the
      future or a garden in a locked area like a shed or barn.  They
      seem to be enticed by the spices and smells of the herbs.]

  Encounter #16 - Night 88 - 5:34am

     [Z'leyra is awakened by banging on the door.  A group of 6
      peasants ask to see the Shaman healer.  Z'leyra wakes up
      to find the peasants are holding a new born only hours
      old.  They ask that with some holy water they got at
      a local temple she the only shaman in the area, maybe
      entire city, purify the ground for a ceremony.  They ask
      it be done before sunrise in 30-45 minutes for the rite
      for the new born to work.  Z'leyra purifies a area of
      ground outside and a quick ceremony is done by the peasants
      to bless the child.  They didn't want to use priests but
      only a shaman due to their particular orientation to nature
      and farming.  In exchange the peasants offer a dozen or
      so chickens in barter as payment are clearly not rich enough
      to avoid to pay in cash.]
