Well, I’m Fired. Welcome to the Family?

Your Highnesses, the King and Queen of Galadron,

In this letter I speak as your future daughter in law.

My mother, Mistress Remiriel, Regent of House Torduis has declared I will no longer represent House interests in the Kingdom of Galadron, citing a conflict of interest on my part beginning with my marriage and joining your house next month. She has instead named another daughter who is her direct heir, my sister Micareari, to be my successor. Mica has traveled with me as bodyguard and confidant and observed my tactics and methods for the better part of a year now. Although I expect she will do things differently than I, I think you will be satisfied that she will place the priority of the treaty and Trade Agreement between my mother’s and your realm as highly as I did. She is a priestess of the war college, very wise and highly capable. She has been given full control of my former embassy in Galadron. Continue reading “Well, I’m Fired. Welcome to the Family?”

Wait, You Did What Now?

Your Highness the King of Galadron, Great Lord of the Surface Elves, Architect of the New Alliance of the Border Kingdoms and Future Father-in-Law,

I gives me both great pleasure and a little sadness to present you with this report, being the first of its kind and my final act as Ambassador of House Torduis to the Kingdom of Galadron. Continue reading “Wait, You Did What Now?”

A Moment with the Prince

After Raena finished an early evening workout with the two Nyss, she cooled down and washed up with a wet towel. Working out with them was the perfect challenge in her mind; either one of them was more skilled than she was, but she was usually twice as fast as either of them alone. Their combined skills often had her on the defensive and she had to work hard to land a “touch” — something they all did so as not to cause injury at a time they had to be in top form. Since she was at the greatest disadvantage, her philosophy was that she would have the most to learn. Continue reading “A Moment with the Prince”

Notes by Raena’malarra

In her words…

Alfred produced some new designs to modify our new armor to give a green tint because they were all quite distinctive and ornate.

There was a set of fans, made for martial use, that I swiped!

After selling and dividing the loot, I went and purchased some nice, stout chests for members of the adventuring company and met them at a tavern. We had fun, drinks, drugs, truth and dare, all with the king and his enforcer-slash-executioner. Wow! Good times. And I got to show Eidelwyn my fungeon later.

So here we are, elite fodder for battle. Joy… but at least I got these suped-up bracers that help me avoid some injury. Anyway, looks like we have a choke point. Narrow gap, a couple towers for the flanks and 300 seasoned soldiers.

Hm. This sounds somehow familiar. And I have a bad feeling about this. Continue reading “Notes by Raena’malarra of House Torduis”

Session 2014-12-20. In Raena’s words…

After some rest we helped put this village together. There was in fact a defensive wall. So this frontier collection of hovels exposed to the blinding, unmerciful light of the glaring sun is actually habitable. For humans. I think they empty their chamberpots in the street. Humans smell bad. They even have these ditch things with bike spikes. Holy Gaeruilil! But they know how to prepare for a battle. I have a sinking feeling this fight will be more educational for me than I’d like. Continue reading “Notes by Raena’malarra of House Torduis”

Session 2014-12-6. In Raena’s own words…

After a day of celebration and loot dividing we took up the second mission to investigate farms. We found one at the end of a day of travel. (We went during the day. Why? Whyyyyy?)  We fought off some orcs and saved the family.

I noticed there some buildings on fire, including one with horses. Big deal, right? Yes it was! Don’t look at me like that. It was important because the cleric Meluiwen went to save the animals. I think Ciara almost died, but luckily a bit of magic saved her from the orc boss that had run her down. Anyway, like I said we fought them off.

Session on 2014-11-22. In Raena’s words…

We got together to become an adventuring group and are attempting to build reputation by doing some useful things for the kingdom. Long term goal: we create our own kingdom.

In the woods we killed a bunch of kobolds and investigated a cave. There we released a unicorn, and Garrick took the shackles that kept it teleporting away. I wonder what he intends to do with them? Continue reading “Notes by Raena’malarra of House Torduis”
