Maximillian - NPC Halfling Master of the Horse of Padua
Azmir - NPC Local merchant and wizard in Padua
Black Thom - NPC Human Butler

(Previous Notes)

There is some talk of the shadow seen during the flash of the spell's light. Vaervenshyael ignores the insinuations, and passes the whole thing off as an effect of the spell only.

Azmir stands himself up to try again. He sings loudly and clearly, with the pure light of Hysh flowing through him. Vaervenshyael recognizes it as the most pure casting she has ever heard from a non-elf.

Suddenly the room explodes outward from Vaervenshyael. Anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds of yellow, slimy, fat globules cover the room and ever…

The Princep's Manor House, Padua-on-Avon

In a flash of light and a loud pop, like a tile cracking, Azmir's Hysh song ends.

In that extended few moments Wilhelm, Tankred, and Johann see the room, its furnishings and occupants, in sharp relief and long shadows.

Vaervenshyael's shadow stretches across the marbled floor to the wall. A larger shadow seems to twin her, a tall, thickly armored and helmeted form. Spiked, sharply pointed pauldrons, vambraces, gauntlets and greeves suggest a menacing intent. Vaervenshyae…

Vaervenshyael and Azmir find Maximillian at the Library in the Temple to Verena. After a bit of small talk, Maximillian escorts the two back to the manor...where Vaervenshyael started this man hunt quite a while ago.

Maximillian talked of the defense of the town from Ubain's attack. It seemed to be all anyone could talk about. According to stories from the displaced of Ubain, the ruler, 9-10-11, returned to his princeps under darkness. Maxim…

Meta: Does Azmir look anything like Abdul Al Shar? Answer: Azmir is an almost black skinned Arabyan. A salted black beard, shorter than you've seen in images of Abdul, but a profile that could be Abdul, older. He wears elaborate white robes of his color, Hysh, and can be often heard singing under his breath if he's not talking.

Whether he worships still the one god of Araby is only rumor and of no matter to most in the Badlands. His wareho…

Mathilde stormed into the kitchen of the inn to call Vaervenshyael out for killing her rat catcher. Tankred tried to smooth things over between the two, but failed miserably (bad Fellowship roll). Vaervenshyael stepped up to speak for herself. She used etiquette and charm to convincingly relate her position and the series of events leading up to the bar room death. Mathilde insisted on a battle with her town's judicial champion in order to q…

GM: Johann and Tankred awkwardly step toward the door of Mathilde Manse. Their clothing sticking to their wet skin and in the Kaldzeit chill giving them the look of a freshly plucked hens. The wet hair pulled back and dripping down their spines didn't add to the look.

They know the man just inside the door speaking franticly with Mathilde and several of her house guard. He holds two cast iron pans, one in each hand, and is shouting about an elf and drunkard killing the newest hire of Mathilde, Jacque the Rat Gripper.

"Minding his own business he was! Skewered him, and his dog too! Just like before, but without cause I tell you! Murdered the wit…

Imultrud - Knight NPC, liaison to Mathilde

(Previous Notes)
The party finally returned to Mathildeburg, the home of Imultrud, and the northern-most ally of Padua-Upon-Avon. Due to limited ration and drink on the trail, Wilhelm and Vaervenshyael were compelled to head straight to the Drunken Donkey tavern for some much needed sustenance.

At the tavern, a barmaid "helpfully" reminded Vaervenshyael that the place offered baths. It seemed weeks on the trail from Barak Varr had left a noticeable stink on the party. Vaervenshyael dismissed the suggestion until she had gotten a suitable dinner.  "And, if I remember correctly, this town was covered in rats when …
