Admin Notes: None.
[Sivas City, Marentia]
[Decalis 25th, 1634TH]
The hunter returns with the group to Sivas. Since he
left he is better at the language but still a very quiet
person who does not speak out much. The others try to
get him to act up and get vocal but give up after many
Pyan checks his money and finds not much there but
since he is too quiet to ask Z'leyra so stay at her
manor he has to select a Inn. He finds a cheap inn
and at least that will feed him as well.
Pyan rests in the Inn and recovers. He does ask
to barn his horse at Z'leyra's place.
[Decalis 26th, 1634TH]
Pyan attends the meeting today with the rest of the party
for plans. Now that Arawn is back the overall plan is
made. Some are still unhappy on the overall lack of details
but there is a general plan. Pyan hears about the Kameran
and feels home sick. His own place is not that far from
there. Maybe, just maybe he might go there and return
to his home and avoid this strange land.
Pyan asks Arawn if he can give suggestions on books to
read or learn from. Arawn suggests Kaylle the scholar
who has the library full of books.
So Pyan plans to spend most of his time reading at the
library or taking some to a park to read outside. He
can at the very least improve his reading skills.
That afternoon and the next day Pyan shops for winter
clothing that will help in the trip to come. Being a
hunter he is used to hard winters. So he has a slight
advantage on what clothing is best for him for riding
and camping compared to some of the others.
[Decalis 27th, 1634TH]
Pyan already has some winter clothing but gets a few other
minor items including a winter cloak, tunic and warm pants.
His boots are in good shape so does not need to repair them.
Lastly he shops for a winter coat that will keep him mostly
warm riding on the plains.
After shopping he finds he'll end up with 1 gold and some
change for the rest of his time here. He had hoped Z'leyra
would've maybe shared some of that gold bar money. But he
is not as rich as the others. But he is not one to bug for
help and support. But in the end if he had to he could live
in the wilderness and survive on his own with no money.
[Decalis 28th - 30th, 1634TH]
Pyan continues to spend time at the library. Arawn plans to
help teach Kiet and Kell a few things there as well but only
on certain days. So he at least sits in with the others to
learn from them.
[Time: 6:31 pm
The library has closed and so Pyan is heading back to his
Inn for the food they provide for him for dinner.
As Pyan enters a small street the dim light of twilight is
all around. By now most are off the streets once the
sun sets and markets close. As he moves on foot down
the street he notices 4 approaching. A man in dark blue
thick robes is carrying a walking stick with runes on it.
In triangle formation behind him are 3 other males of average
size. The non robed men are wearing leathers and carrying
swords and daggers.
The robed man is almost shouting as he moves fast westward.
"..I told you never to pick up any items. Now we lost
Zorn and Kadu. When we enter a lair items may be cursed
or protected. I did not hire you men to be scholars but
use common sense!"
One man speaks up, "Zorn attacked us and we had to defend
you and us."
"No excuses..now I have to inform the parents..." The
robed man continues to argue and berate the men as they
move west past Pyan.
Based on what Pyan has seen of the others the robed man
must be a wizard of some sort. Pyan shrugs and continue
on his way to the Inn.
[Decalis 31st, 1634TH]
[Time: 6:52 pm]
Again Pyan is heading after a day at the library reading.
It is well dark and he notices a group of 15-17 people
shouting and arguing with vendors at a closed market. They
are shouting that the food they bought was bad and they
need food to go back to where they came from. The dealer
simply argues that the food was paid for as is.
Pyan feels bad for the large mob of folks, probably pilgrims
based on some of the clothing. If it was day time he could
offer to hunt for some food for them. But it is too late
to do so.
[Janaq 3rd, 1635TH]
[Time: 11:52 am]
Today Pyan decides to read at a nice park nearby his Inn.
It is time for lunch and Pyan digs in his bag for some left
over ham and biscuits. But as he does a rider dressed
in Marentian uniform of a city guard approaches. The
guard dismounts and begins to ask Pyan questions on who
he was and why he was here.
Pyan may not be fluent but he speaks enough Marentian
now to reply correctly if not with an accent. The guard
says Pyan looks like a wanted man who killed a prized
deer privately owned by a merchant.
After some intense 20 minutes the guard finally leaves
Pyan. The guard is satisfied with his answers and finds
he is not the suspect.
[Janaq 4th, 1635TH]
[Time: 2:19 pm]
Pyan exits the library on a break from Arawn. The man
can be helpful but at times distracting. Pyan wanders
over to the park and notices there is a large group already
there. All dressed nicely and he realizes it is a wedding
ceremony. There must be 50-70 people standing about all
in decent clothing though its cold out not many have
warm clothing on - must e too worried to mess up their
He covertly watches and realizes weddings here are so
different. These large long boring rituals. In his
land there is a simple quick speech and its done. The
best dress might be a nice set of boots or a rare set
But as Pyan watches the priest he notices a man on
the sidelines stare at the bride to be. While all
others seem transfixed by the priest this man is staring
at her. Pyan may not be a expert in emotions or empathy
like Arawn. But even he can see this man sees lost love.
He wonders how long the marriage will last with that man
longing for the bride.
[Janaq 5th, 1635TH]
[Time: 7:58 am]
Pyan is heading to the library on this very cold day.
A slight snow drift is now over an hour and puddles are
all over the place.
As Pyan heads down one street he notices 10 men and woman
yelling at some old man and a middle aged man. The old
man looks like a farmer while the 10 look to be poor
peasants from the lower class. Pyan listens for some
time and realizes the mob is saying that the farmer's
smoke house is tainted by demons and must be destroyed.
They claim the smoke from it changes colors from gray to
red and orange. Some even say the smoke forms shapes
and chases people.
The mob is holding light torches and taunting the farmer
and maybe his son to move aside. Pyan shakes his head.
He may be considered backwards as a barbarian as well.
But being around the party has changed his point of view
at times. The smoke could have a solid logical reason
for doing what it does. Suddenly the mob loses patience
and shoves the farmer down. Some begin to toss the torches
at the wooden smoke house. Pyan even knows that most
smoke houses are brick why this one is wooden he has no
The structure begins to burn as the younger farmer tries
to douse the flames. Suddenly 3 city guards on horse
ride fast down the street and break up the mob scene. But
in the end the smoke house is badly damaged.
Pyan shakes his head at the peasantry superstition. If
only he saw whet he did in the last month they'd never
leave their homes.
GM: I was working (still am) on Arawn's IBT. But since
I got Pyan's IBT I figure I'd get it out. After all
it was only 1 line. :) So was easy to fill in the
gaps with random encounters. Since it was very tiny
I just did it up and skipped Arawn's. Sorry John.
Since there was not much details other than shop
and reading I assume did not stay with Z so had
to use a Inn.
Pyan you are now EL59 Marentia which is 1 away from being
pure fluent. So there is no language issue at all for you.
This leaves Fremea and Unali. Hopefully Arawn's
will be completed soon.

GM: Distances: (to remind myself later)
Sivas to Village by Land:
Path Hexes Distance
Sivas to Maren [Road] 12 240 miles
Maren to Cholchara [Road] 9 180 miles
Road to Marentia Fort 3.5 70 miles
Option-to Ba'ru City 3 60 miles
Fort to Village [Plain] 21 420 miles
Option: Ba'ru to Village 23 460 miles
Total: 910-950Miles depending on Ba'ru visit
Sivas to Village by water
River to Village 31 620 miles
River to Village 5 100 miles
Total: 720 Miles
Village to Kameran border (roughly)
Zen'da Plains to Border 43 860 miles
These are rough estimates and I may be off a few
hexes. These are various options.
So let's say ship wagon/horses by barge up river.
So let's assume a simple barge doing 10-20 miles
per day. Might even do more with good winds. Let's
assume 15 on average. That's 40 days. Ok. So shipping
ahead of time may not be a good option. :)
How about going to Ba'ru and getting supplies there?
Wagons? Horses? That is the closest large city to
the village. If prepare is done at start of IBT and
say a person ships those items (wagon/horses from Ba'ru)
to village then would need only cross 460 miles.
At 25 per day would be 19 days. Almost in the IBT
As GM I'm only trying to cover options. You guys have
to do some serious logistics to decide. Mainly the
horses and/or wagon/food. To fit within the 2 weeks.
Above there are some option as well. Chion if in town
could be swayed to help as he could probably teleport
2-3 wagons in one jump.
Forgot to post this last night.
was on site days ago but forgot.
I came home to a odd fatal error but its workign fine so may be a fluke.
But if no tbe warned..:)
