     Game Update #2 in sequence (file #3)
     Admin notes: None.

        From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
          Z'leyra will warmly welcome Fremea saying <in Tongue of the
          Faerry Sidh> "Welcome! We are glad to have you join our group.
          If you wish you may stay at my mansion while we are at Sivas.
          Though I should warn you that I have been attacked there,
          apparently I have enemies that might attack any near me."

          Z'leyra extends an invitation to all party members to guest
          at her mansion at Sivas if they wish. She does mention that
          apparently she has enemies and staying with her is not without

          In regards to the Claw Z'leyra will keep it in her satchel
          until out of the forest. Then she will cast OS EL0 and a
          Divination ELmax to determine if the next day she will say
          "Well it appears that burning the Claw didn't cause any
          problem." If so she will start a fire and burn the Claw.
          Otherwise she will keep the claw wrapped up in her satchel.

          Before being teleported Z'leyra will cast OS EL0 and
          Divination EL0 to determine if she will later that day say
          "The teleport went fine, Thank you Chion." If the teleport
          goes fine she will say "The teleport went fine, Thank you
        GM: Ack.  But remind me on the claw stuff in your in between
            actions as that is after and can be handled then.
            Best to handle it all at once.  As to teleport actions
            the teleport already went through, sorry :<

         [Decalis 23rd 114th day since left Marentia, 50th day of
          Adventure #3 of the 1633rd year [TH].]

        [The party has teleported into the Zen'da Plains - at
         the location of Caladan's village.  Chion has setup
         this Teleport circle near the village just for this
         purpose in the past.  No one will use it or walk
         through it just in case.  it is a good way point setup
         by him for future long range teleports.]

        [Fremea looks confused by the location of the cold plains
         and the strange Tipi structures in the distance nearby.
         The Zen'da riders and villagers.  Arawn is curious by
         the low tech Tipis as well.  Nothing like this would likely
         have been seen near his parent's domain.]

        [Ben'dar smiles happy to be back at the plains even for
         a short time.  So close to his own village in the central
         tribes.  If only Chion could teleport them there.  But
         he has work back in Marentia with his Marentia.  Once he
         proves his status in Marentia he'll return to his village.]

        [Chion stares at the village and seems to speak to Fremea
         and Arawn as well as the others.]

        Chion: "I shall travel to learn shamanic magics. I will also
          practice extending mana reserves with spells in a similar
          manner as Z'leyra.  I will learn any shamanism spells I can,
          including resurection if at all possible. I must not forget
          to pick up my friends when the time comes. I look forward to
          establishing a link to my Tonah creature, that should be

        [As he considers his future here on the plains with Cetric
         as his teacher he sees several in the tribe notice them and
         start to move about quickly.]

        Farseeker: "I'm glad we can stop by.  I would like to see
          Caladan again."

        [Xian explains to Fremea and Arawn about the tribe.]

        Xian: "This place is on a large plain that spans about
          1,000 miles?  Something like that.  Controlled by the
          Zen'da tribes.  Our friend Ben'dar is from here to
          the west a bit.  The Zen'da are great horse riders and
          warriors.  Our friend and fellow adventurer Caladan
          was born here.  He is the son of the Ga'sha or Chief.
          He has decided to stay here to help the village and
          his father."

        [Arawn reminds the party the horses won't remain stones
         for long.  Should only spend about a half hour to be
         safe.  The party walks into the village and finds
         familiar faces.  Gib'borah, Durge, Caladan and Cetric
         all meet the party.  A brief overview of events in the
         north is explained to Caladan.  Quick conversations
         are held on future plans and future investigations
         into Katai and the gray creatures.  Cetric and Chion
         talk privately for a brief time on his plans to stay
         here a few months to learn Shamanism from Cetric.
         As quickly as the conversations get going the party
         needs to leave.  They return to the teleport circle
         with a unhappy Durge following Gib'borah and Caladan.
         He clearly doesn't want Chion to learn from Cetric
         and doesn't bother letting anyone know it.  Chion
         smiles and ignores the barbarian.]

        [At the circle Chion gathers the party around and
         teleports the party outside the outskirts of Sivas
         to a safe zone previously designated and as well
         as magic cast to divine the future in case of
         teleport problems by some of the party.]

        [Now its midday and the party has arrived just outside
         the city of Sivas.  The Wind blows and the first
         hint of salt air is smelt.]

        Farseeker: "Thanks Chion for the lift  But caravans at
          least get food and entertainment on the trip." [He
          smiles and winks at Chion.]

        [The party waits a bit and the horses transmute back.
         The treasure is loaded on the horses and the party
         moves on as they explain to Fremea and Arawn the
         details on Marentia and the two major cities of
         Maren and Sivas.]

        Xian: "We meet once a week at the Green Eye Tavern on
          Greenemre Street.  We'll show you where it is.  Its
          not a requirement to meet.  But all the past and
          present adventurers meet there like a club.  Those
          who have retired like Cholan to those who have not
          like most of us.  Its a good way to spend time and
          catch up on current events as well of keep in touch
          in case of problems like Z'leyra's attacks in the
          past.  Fremea and Arawn are welcome to join us.  We
          meet on Endweek.  Fremea you may want to cover up
          your wings.  Not many have seen Faerry here.  While
          they won't go and hang you on the spot they might
          be offended or confused.  Ignorance leads to fear
          and fear leads to hate.  For your safety its best
          to cover up and maybe look like...a female child...
          no offense meant.  Thig and Kaylle have to do the
          same.  Arawn the only thing with you is your ears but
          they are more tolerant so covering up is optional
          I would say."

        [The party enters the eastern gates of the city with
         ease as Farseeker's status gives him some privilege in
         that area.  No fees are paid.  The party shows the
         new party members the tavern. Cholan is currently
         there, as he tends to be these days, with his wife.]

        Xian: "Wife?!  You got married?"

        [Cholan beams and Fremea, Arawn notices his damaged
         and incurable hand.  Z'leyra explained its a wound
         that can't be cured and Cholan is fine with it.]

        Cholan: "Got married recently.  Glad to see you guys!
          Tell me about your travels!" [He calls for drinks
          and food.]

        [As Farseeker and Ben'dar take the treasure to a local
         market to store in a warehouse the party fills in
         details of the last few months with Cholan.]

        [The next 2 days pass with the party selling the
         treasure and separating the funds.  Fremea doesn't
         get a party share but knows she just joined the
         party.  Z'leyra returns to her mansion and Ben'dar
         sets plans to return to Maren and his ranch.  Chion
         returns to his home.  Xian returns to his house.
         Farseeker returns to his barracks and the party
         settles in for a long rest in a bed in a tavern or
         home for the first time  in almost 4 months.  Some
         sleep for 10 hours the next day...]

        Actions? Comments?

        Next update Friday...

        GM: Short update.  This is how the updates will go for
            the next few weeks until I can finish the CP and
            IBT actions.  So don't expect much.  :)

        GM: Some advice and reminders:

            A.  Shouldn't try to plan IBT actions until you do
                the CPs spreading out.  At that point I will
                send you a temp character sheet.  You can
                then plan your actions on current information.

            2. Keep in mind the CPs are for the adventure.  You
               will likely earn more for the IBT from magic
               and skills/encounters.

            3. Character sheets: When I send you the character sheets
               this is with updated CPs.  But keep in mind nothing
               is changed in formulae like hit points, energy level
               or skills.  Those things will likely change.  But
               since the IBT will affect it no need to duplicate
               my effort by doing it twice.  So when you get the
               sheet is only a current sheet so you have current
               info.  I will then update the final sheet for
               adventure 4 AFTER the IBT actions are completed.

            4. Encounters: When you do your IBT time/actions.
               Let me know in general where you go and how
               you do things.  Not a hour by hour schedule.
               But if you for example spend time in the Market
               and government section let me know.  If you
               spend time in the graveyard let me know.  If
               your in the city I will assume your on normal
               streets and visit shops, markets and taverns.
               But if you do anything out of the ordinary like
               the graveyard or shipyards for example let me know.
               This will help me with encounters.  if your in
               the wild or decide to stay say at a location (like
               Ben'dar on his ranch) mostly then that's fine as
               well.  Just a general outline not specific day
               by day is needed.  Since there could be 960*14
               possible encounters I will handle all encounters
               as best I can.  This is why its best to let me
               know ahead of time what you typically do. Go
               after someone if 4 to 1? Sure.  Avoid battles.
               Kill that dragon flying overhead.  Sure.  That
               kinda stuff. Otherwise I will assume normal
               defense to save your life actions if you don't
               state otherwise (optional).
