half words and failed. Chris presents a world of gilts, world of riffs, world of celestial whales, frog brides and lots of goofing. Hail FOOD SHARK This is worlds inside the National Guild Hall of
Heavy Father guilds of all kinds tend to There were a few celebrate, successfully closing their first breath. More celebrate surviving the encounter, grieving compatriots lining the walls. Some quietly slowed, some curse. Defiantly, the guild grandmasters Gil run them. Anorexia make their way through the masses, tersely instructing their employees softly, consoling the morning and boisterously congratulating the victims of a vigorous week of May. The rest of the occupants watch as a T fling to elves and a daintily waving work exit into the past of best approaching and well earned calm night air. The guards gently closed the great Oken gates behind. Daniel looks at you own gives you not turns right into the Dead Skull Tavern, where you assume she'll be spending much of her time for the next few days. Standard fare for her. After a long day of discovery, you hear the closing of the gates get interrupted and a show comes from behind syndicates. What do you do
I turn around
and do three centered in cc degrees
Way I turn on await
you turn and see a woman standing before you tall and slender, her sharp blue eyes reflecting the last bit of light from the setting sun. As the last light sinks below the horizon, the moonlight begins to reflect off the woman's deep of city in scales. Oh, my God! Please, Simon. Grandmaster Oryx. Yes. Looks over all of you And you realize you have never seen her without her being heavily obstructed by cowls and cloth. Please, uh rest a moment long enough for me to extend the gratitude of the grandmasters for your efforts this week we've been informed that you all were on retreat when the invasion occurred and did your best to get into action as quick as possible. Then you are able to shut five riffs in just a day's time. Finally arrived. You must have made short work of the invaders. How you did it is just a sank it. Second rank killed and without the full force of your guild is incredible. Some may even say impossible for a second rank guilt to accomplish such a feat because We're heroes.
It was really just look. Good timing.
Well, whatever you may call it, I'm having some people looking to you.
Oh, dear. Like for accolades or a
CZ, Your kind of bowling over. What's going on right here. You see a small winged creature pop into existence over judicial. It's carrying incredibly formal.
No, no, no. It startles, you know, start
on me. Uh, let's see what we have here. She pulls from the parcel, but small booklet and flips through its pages occasionally taking pause and sizing up each of you individually. After a while, she looks back up and says, Where is Sonya? She was with you this last week. Correct? Yes, she's the way she
went back to our tree house. She's
on a bender. I'm just in the corner trying really hard not to laugh. She had
back to the very essence, and
she and says
she wanted to celebrate.
Well, no matter feel to be together again shortly.
you really suspicious? Are you saying that she just kind of looks up at you and smirks and looks back down into the parcel? We're totally getting arrested, I think. Should I wish for you guys. You see Eric, See if she takes a stamp from the parcel. And notarize is a few documents handing them back to the fairs, which nods and disappears. Is that a check? A left? I was told there would be
a chick. Oh, Jesus.
you already received your
payment. Don't mind him. His little orca brain is not very good. She's just saying we're gonna get she's investigating. It's a case of
assuming she's standing gorgeous. We did really good. I'm proud of this. She's just watching you all, just like sweating. And as you guys air kind of nervously whispering to each other, you notice that our Xia reaches behind her back and you can hear the jingling of chains.
Excuse me? I think This'll
words, things and go Lara rexy and crabs, the collar of your blouse and pull
so close I can change into a mouse reaction.
Thio, draw my Geiger's.
I'm a fucking mouse, guys. It's all good. I just like dropped to the ground. Reaction is ready. Yeah, I don't need
your daggers. Just like
in my hands. I couldn't move super fast. It's
gonna be hard to move faster than someone who's right in front. But she's like, Right next. Lara, aren't you? Well, now she's just Did you shake?
I panic shape shifted.
So she's got you in her hand, and she's like, um I don't think you can Do you want to read con turning into about? Yeah, probably. Okay, so she grabs your collar and pulls you in close Kiss her.
Just see what she does.
Perceiving this, I just kind of side I heard. Like you want T. O? Yeah. Perceiving
you never seem to e
like to know what you just First. I'd like to see what her mood is. Ready to go. This'd is thirties like this.
Okay, so I really ever gonna make his level 20. Not because that's when I lose my wild shape. Unlimited number of times
would drop. So you just see your guild grandmaster. Just roughly grab one of your guild base by the collar and just drag her right up close. This ewing, uh, the grandmaster she's wearing, she wears like, a lot of like, tightly wrapped clock, but loss. So, like, it's very covering, like, skin tight. Yeah, for sure. You know, it's like lots of
I also nine. Okay,
Nablus. So Okay, well, I want to join the club now on perceived todo Can I investigate her face? Theo can t 0 12 plus
is inside. Motive perception is stupid. And have you physically happening with a single object? That
12 5 So 17
she doesn't look malicious.
Okay? Her eyes they're friendly. Okay. I'm just, like, must deal in. Why you? Why you so close?
Okay. Or Xia releases you and gently pulls away and her teeth keep through her skin as she ran. Three. Looks good on you. The legs are pinned to your college. She takes another came from her hand, begins to adorn.
Oh, boy, that was alarming. I don't like just like with her aside. Like you might wanna work on your approach a little bit more. You scared the crap 100
percent. Just slowly. So that's what I was just gonna ask. Doesn't Dexter where any upper body clock? Upper body closing. I
think you should wait. I think we should recommend that you wear a kilt. So I keep my stuff right here. He was about to hand door
and stuff on your filled. Yet she puts it on your she does not care about any of that. She's incredibly professional that yep or Xia half turns to walk away before mentioning We'll spend the rest of the formalities in the next few days. Rest easy, said the kid vocal Gnostic. This Does that mean there's a chick
know Latin, isn't it? Yeah, I'm assuming it's like the guild Logan Mosque bigness. I feel like the way
you lot isn't like launched something.
It's the fire calls. Yeah, that's the like slogan of the national or like stuff mantra that I was just wondering if there was, like, the connection between a fire in the rift. No, that's just the Guild's mantra, like never before. Like when they actually have enough notice. Thio get the guilts together before the rift start forming. Just like that's happened a few times, everyone will have a meeting. You'll go. You'll pick up your things in the meeting, will head with the grandmasters, raising a fist and saying, OK, passing guest and the entirety of all the Gables will repeat the same baby.
Um, I mean, we have not gotten a very good description of this person. She may not be your speed or is literally everything. You're your interest. She's a scale of one already. I was gonna I wanted to. You said that she penned up like 1/3 star. Something on our thing.
So it's a chain chain. Links are diamond shaped of hand. It just kind of loosely hangs like off. If she spends each side of the game like your collar, Delia came forth. No. Okay, Yeah. So you can still move because you've met other third rank gills. And you've met other first round bills that you don't get these chains until, Okay? And then there's different variations of the change. The higher up you go on drinking, what was the highest rank? 10. And the only 10th level guilt that you know of is the first. So
where we're working our way up the ladder. Yeah. Yeah. All right.
I'm happy. Does anyone have anything else for your ex CIA?
I'm just gonna be like thank you.
She continues there, turns and finishes playing right in front of you.
We didn't go. How do I learn that smell?
So, like the last thing that you see issue turns is like the like, last twinkle of like her
Jolly old ST Nicholas. We're gonna
find her body because
you guys head back to treat our I'm assuming.
I mean, is there were at the guilt. All right? Yeah, we got our money. They're gonna send us stuff later. It's Lord, she
No, we're going home. That's fine, E. Let's just go back. Kim, we need somebody
dies if you If you went back into the hole, she's probably already thinking it was the rest of the first paradigm. Back to wherever. There you go. Back to treat down. Yeah. When you all arrived back in tree tower, you find Moses Brunton Zegna tending to a fire pit. Oh, man, I'm I'm relieved to see you folks. I'm not sure my old ticker could have taken this too much longer. You would have been fine, Zegna says as she stretches and then stands from fire decides we all die. It's whether or not the souls of our reputation gets swallowed by fruit tarts. And that's what matters deep. Yeah. Uh, you told me that yesterday. Do ever turns to you all just keeps repeating that every time I look worried e you really that's a little bit in director. Let me keep you entertained. And the other
lesson you learn from this week.
Guys, please. You gotta sleep
arms of a warlock. Less LuthorCorp. Target your consciousness. Yep. That too. I don't know why she thinks any of this else. Thank whatever being she praised you that you are all back. Please. Please come sit.
I'm usually handle. Did you sleep in?
Just says, Hey, she starts moving her hand around and you see small spheres start becoming one singular, undulating shape off on her forearm, which he's holding hope. Much like a falconer would be waiting for a partner to land. Instant this fear smart. The spears form a small prince loose in a suit of dragon that you've seen Daniel with before. She knows it and it flies off. Garrett will go retrieve Isaac Body and the others Now welcome back, friends with her.
Thank you. Wait. Who was at the at the campfire?
Moses Zegna and ever.
How do you tell her name again?
X. D and Jay. I would like to know more more about food. Yes. Well, there's a lot about dark.
I would like to devote myself I'm like getting out paper and coil and like getting ready to say notes because I'm like, Who could have this information to my library?
We'll be able to summon trances. Hold on a second. I wasn't expecting her to do missionary. She wasn't expecting to do missionary work today because she has never been a missionary. I think you would enjoy
it, though. I'm just over here like waiting intently.
So one thing that I know about Zegna is her personality trait is that she often miss close religious test, doesn't it? Yeah, it's like those two quotes that you just heard. You have no idea because those were religious quotes that she just said, but they may not see how much I have p teach you, notes F u T K are. So we're going to say that she rambles in a way that you guys were having a very hard time keeping
up. But the stuff
that you understand about the food chart manage or the food's heart manuscript is that the manuscript is written by and then there's just a symbol. It is a line that kind of makes like a lightning. The lightning bolt shaped like a very vertical line single. And then there's two, like crosses at the top of that first line in the box. That personal bottom of the second, she says. No, this is the author of the manuscript. She could. She would totally give touches.
So the manuscript is like their sacred text isn't really our.
Yep, it is the food cart manuscript, and it is written by that person. What's it written? It is written in a language you have never seen. But then you have seems to understand it fairly well. Is it coming? It does not come from. Is
it a business?
It is none. It is not a world language. Nope. So she's from a parallel world? Well, it's It's not so. Some things that you can pick up about food is that food tarps seems to be a god of chaos. And what scholars would clarify has a great bowl one or whether vertical held your whore. It's not really a god. It's It's a horrific
thing, troubling. What's that
in hell? Bridgewater. So that term comes from H. P. Lovecraft, and he's Yeah, So he wrote the books called Through Loop on Eldridge Horrors are supposed to be gods that work outside of any sort of plane of existence, and they mess with They basically just mess with the world. And they're like, ancient. They're supposed to be like the gods before the planet had, like, primordial ooze, like they're they're like gods that form from that kind of time. They're kind of instrument, interdimensional being sometimes and like they're they're all sorts of messed up. But the flu is like the most prominent Alberto horror, which is like this deep sea God that messed with the town forever. It was called, but the main point of the elder gods is that everything is unpronounceable and unreadable. So you know what we say goes through Lou. But that's not actually how you pronounce whatever that creature's name is. So it's the same with Soutar. Fruit tart is what she interprets these symbols to mean. It is not an actual language. It is not something that can actually be pronounced. It's her interpretation of what she's okay, and she's being spoken to the way warlocks work is. Their powers are largely an extension of their they're grateful ones, gifting them. Similar abilities were even working through them to access different universes and stuff that is half the warlocks work. So any of her abilities, such as you learn the name of you You just learned the name of her little pseudo dragon is called Yaron. Yaron is part of food tar that has been gifted to her.
You can't can't lose.
It's a gift, wasn't it? But Unit devoted myself this religion. So, uh,
you have to be a warlock, you know? Yeah, You D'oh! To follow a religion. No, I mean to get this against your villages.
From the no justice you can follow the religion. You can't have the gifts of the What's the point of devoting myself to them? You could you could multi glass as a warlock. Then maybe I will devote myself to this. Yeah, you could be a warlock fighter.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Fine. Multi. Last is a warlock. I could get a pet.
Is everyone going to become followers of food talk?
No gods, but I get a pet, right?
Is that what your God does? It depends on which passes table. There's packet of the chain. There's pact of budget and stuff And
how did I get a pet?
The other thing about warlocks is if you don't follow the deities, the deities will do horrible, awful things.
Thio, if I were
willing to deal with a God that is referred to as an eldritch horror, Okay, you can have a pet.
Yeah, but I wouldn't have to have that God, would I? Yes, they are all great ones. The elder.
So the warlocks have Malu the fiend, the great old one or what secrets? Elastic, mister. But none of them are good. They're all very bad.
How come every sign and will be a war like, Well, I just want somebody. Oh, you know, it gives me a pet that upon you have a giant cross was about I have a mountain because this is I want a pet that comes with me everywhere. Like Dark does. You're not dark. Um, you can just what? I want to bond with it.
Yeah. Yeah, well, I mean, it's just like you
guys changed much change of plans. We're going to the pet store pet story because we're
not all devoting ourselves. Sure. Okay. So the way they describe the things that you couldn't follow. They described them as a demon prince in arch Devil for utterly alien. And
still they're late. Evil.
He's a power. So it's kind of in the name or,
I mean, like, Warlocks follow like
your luck is defined by a pact with otherworldly beings, sometimes in a relationship between Warlock and its patron. So sometimes relationship between a warlock and its patron is like that of a clarity. And indeed, the being service patrons for warlocks are not gods warlocks, maybe a cult dedicated by even prince and arch, devil or other leave and beings not typically served by Clarence. It's often, though, the arrangement is similar to that between a master and an apprentice. The Warlock learns and grows in power at the cost of occasional service is performed on the pages.
Gotcha. Still, like warlocks early, essentially, the into the system players. Yeah,
warlocks of the opposite of Claire's,
right? Have you You just want a pen? I want a pet in a pocket dimension. Is that too much to ask more? Apparently, judging from the look you're giving one of his girlfriends jerk, she gives a scary girls e. I mean, scariest, bloody scary. and you guys
were just kind of freaked out by her ex CIA.
If a Scalea scary girlfriend, he does, I get a pet and the documents. So
are you guys doing anything with Zegna? Ever? And for Moses?
I'm just kind of like my case. It was yours. Do we were gone.
We search for you guys, huh? Uh, because we we had to make sure that, you know, the four was held down and you guys never came out of that rift. And there were rips open a year us like they didn't actually get into the compound. But, you know, we wanted to help The nearby town spoke, so we didn't want them getting in here. And right now, you know? Then he just told you sent her a little gravy or pet. Thio, go get Isaac Brody and the rest of the island. Uh, I'm J. They're all out looking right now.
Okay, I forgot. We didn't just mean or just like
Yeah, you kind of just kind of said, Just stand right here. We'll be back, no worries and then get closed.
Yeah, we didn't think it was gonna close. And there were reality. Well, We didn't think it would close. That was our mistake.
Yeah. At least we were around for what had happened. So you weren't just gone.
Yeah, it was planned. Okay. Um, yeah,
this is they helped nearby town. Yeah, there's, like, some little villages that are kind of here. You guys did they reward us? Didn't ask for a war. We just turned in some of the some of the, you know, little droplets of those rip creatures. Leave who?
That was very good of you. As I like. Pull out a couple from my pocket. Hi. Uh, what? Uh, we filled our cities, and I've wanted to do experiments on them yet, Right?
Did they turned theirs? They turned them in you.
So I'm gonna go up to my library and start late. Tinkering around with the stones can make, like, an insight. You're like an investigation. Check on it.
So you're Lara goes up to start researching stones and the others return, and the rest of you sit by the fire for an hour. So do you do anything else? Do you talk about anything else? Body and the
third level now? Drinking? Yeah.
Stuff. Yes. It, uh doesn't really and expand or something. Well, technically, you're supposed to expand your land too. Upgrade. You know,
we're just so damn good.
Yeah, they rewarded you another rank. But there's something else that just Oh, they haven't gotten any change or anything. So this is like news to them.
Yeah. So they were gonna bring more. You guys tell them that. And there are all sorts of excited, and that is just have often her corner, just like she's just by the fire. Just like doing other things. And, you see, like all those orbs showing up there like a little orb like leaving Yaron and they kind of like, dissipates. She's doing something with the errand. And you guys. Oh, I'd never have to tell you guys a little bit. Well, I didn't tell you much about from there. We started talking about the porters. Don't you want to learn something about it? The main thing that you has picked up was that the manuscript contains six chapters. It contains the rights of Theo, The powers of a ruse. The ages of Thursday, as in the trials of and seeds Oh, and the Qin ships have read. And the transcendence? Of course. No kinship. Have read the powers of you roots? No. And she tries to explain all of them to you. But you guys get lost pretty fast. Just good. So is there anything that you guys want Thio do while you're sitting around the fire with them? It's just a nice come tonight.
I want to ask. Boat has any what she's doing.
Oh, just talking with food. Hark! You know, it's kind of always whispering to me. That's great. This time it's telling me that I need a Wait, wait, wait here. That's what I have to go. It's weird. I've never heard anyone else say that phrase. Feel
my sitting immediately. Notice
if you would like to be.
My mom was a library.
Yeah, she's a library. I Unless you just wanna deposit those things, Then come back down or you want
t o. Well, I mean, I wanted to check him out. Are you gonna actually learn anything about them or No.
Yeah, if you're old enough yet.
I mean, if I don't learn anything, then yes, I would come back down, but let's have you, Cheryl. Now
let's have your old now and then we'll catch back up with things
tuned. Okay? Plus what investigation?
You probably be our camp.
Oh, good. Then it's a toll. Life three.
Nice. So you're investigating and what you find is that this is similar. What do you think? It might be similar to trans mutations, but when? But you have a few of them. Would you be willing to break one? Yes. Okay, so when you break one, it kind of seems like it turns into, like, dirt. Just regular dirt. Okay. They have this, like, strange shimmer to them. Let's similar to the riff. So I guess it's not really that strange, but if keeps if you study the rest of the night, you learned something else,
all right. I'll stay the rest of the night.
So you study the rest of the night, and as you're looking at all of them, eventually the shimmer dies. And when the shimmer dies, they don't fade. It's almost like there's a rift that hasn't opened. It's like those bubbles. The bubble that you saw the figures in. Okay. These little bubbles form around them, and then they're gone for sorry, not just one of one of one of them dims, and one of them gets that little bubble and it goes, Okay. And when I was listening to the recording, you guys actually had 650 yeah. So you have stored hurt,
And obviously you'll save those for another night. Yeah, because they could say that disappear within a certain amount of time.
Yeah. So I'm just saying that
the only one of them
one of them disappear. Okay, Yeah, Yeah. Cool. I had a beard. Oh,
good. Okay, so back campfire. What? What are you doing? I
was gonna whisper, I guess to him now, huh? Reserve? I'll say that, I think. Then use these.
You think that is being suspicious?
She says that
I'm glad you noticed. Praised. What
does food talk? Want
me to stay here? Why? I don't know.
Who are you?
Zinnias are cruise around.
Where you from?
I'm from the basket
I'm from a less yet. I mean a lesson in human. You should be able to tell that
way. We're like trying to get up to, like, get your face is enough. A
lizard person this whole time.
You just you are you now less interested in her?
No dragon. She's like from us. No, you know that, like now that you're paying attention to where she's not dressed like her. Her race normally dresses, but she definitely has, like, the tanner skin. And like the the the blue eyes and dark hair that's, like kind of mad, like she very much looks like, Um, I guess I would kind of be comparing her toe like an Eskimo. Yeah.
You're actually twice today that she's human.
Yeah. No, really. It looks like her nationality is someone. It can feel like what we call.
Okay. What does your heart
breaks your heart? Unless food doesn't want anything with you. He wants of me.
Do you want us? I want you. Yes, she's doing very well.
Told me to go away in the rabbit place, and I waited with the rabbits and they were really mean to me and eventually paid off because you
guys came and freed me from the Dell and then offered me a position in your guilt. Did you forget that? You know,
I just feel like please, she's just targets. Boss,
This we're talking articles. Roofs? No, because I don't I don't know what food darken do, but from what I know, food. Heart doesn't know anything about that. Can you ask him what does? I can't speak to food. I can only answer from
What does he know about
a lot? He knows if you sleeping.
So a really creepy version of Santa.
Well, one of my favorite passages from the ages of there, as is that one big mistake can make me too many. Many small success is not something that's in darkness where she could be Miss clinics. I will. I'm glad that you take everything. The heart itself. I've never met another follower. Food talk.
Then how did you speak of interest in?
You guys want to hear her, Baxter? Yeah, she will tell you her backstory.
Is this word for word? You think you know that's
a little bit of a derailment, but she will tell you word for word. Her
backstory. One I just give us like the
Zen you would tell you word for
word. What? You d m just tell us The spark. No version?
How long is it a new chair? Wanna? I'm gonna ask her
pages long about eight paragraphs.
Oh, my God.
So I'm gonna speak this as the GM so is like because, like, I might lose it might leak the story. Whatever. And like the way this is written is from, like, a narrative perspective. So, like it would take a lot of mental gymnastics to get this room to first prospective Jennifer with only a young girl. The first time she saw the words, she had heard plenty of stories from around the come especially from the elders of creatures that roamed the night. Something awful tricks on everyone, some tricks even reaching the severity of death. But those must be missed because she couldn't remember having a seond Where, um, where these causes were mentioned. OK, si on's We're definitely still like that's That's her clans. Word for stories. Did you know this is intentional? I wish I wrote down. That was supposed to be using context. Yeah, I'm trying to contact with us. Discover what? Seond e think
their way out. You didn't go
I think Seong is supposed to be like actual traditional stories like they never liked. These creatures have been talked about, but never in the traditions hasn't mentioned death. It's only rumors and myths that people talk about. People die from that, Uh, either. Neither could her parents. As a matter of fact, remember that next remember time of death was part of the story. Regardless, this was not the case with yours. They appeared to her early in the morning, just after her father went off to start his day in the mines and deadly and deadly or even remotely, Trixie deforms. We're not general is finishing washing the dishes when she set off her stool, Interest is bracing for a fall that never came. She orbs. Cocker is dead, drops straight this quick. As they appeared, they vanished throat. Jenna's formative years, the Forbes mate slowly, more frequent appearances, though their purpose seemed arrest seem too erratically. Very sometimes, like the first time they would assist her moments of my her parents more often enough, they would seem to play with her, using her toys, messing with her tires or just flitting about jovially as if dances with her. But as their late teens approach something about the works against change, they occasionally became more tricks, like the legends and the start to worry they would hover behind someone that Jenna found attractive and taking a sign should approach that person to find out that they were not the nicest people they would do the same with animals Occasion. A wounded wolf that was playing injured to print debate its prey. A bear cub that seemed lost only should be just a few steps behind its ranking mothers. They seem to be trying to harm her. Until one day she noticed the pattern. Not too long after the orders to be her straight, someone or something else would come along that impacted your life far more positively. She's used to deduce that the orders were helping her grow teaching, if you will. So, without hesitance, she followed the direction of the orbs. The will of the orbs became Jenna's. If they told her to jump, she did and didn't take up any time asking how high. Slowly but short. The minor nuances later commune began to disappear. The fishing harvest was more plentiful. The frost it miss less, so the people work together more friendly than ever Before it was working, she could see the threats being tied around her life with each of the works, letting out, turning things for every good thing the orbs asked of Jenna. They asked something they asked of something less kind, but it always had a purpose and eventually led to the betterment of her life. Jenna, to the dismay of her family, Janet, to the dismay over five family, became known as the Village Eclectic to others, she was seemingly running around any odd thing that came to her mind. But her parents didn't mind the statements of as they side for, however annoyed the commune got. With Jenna's antics, you're twice as happy with just her presence. She had something about her that always cheered people up. And for this reason, they also didn't mind that Jenna followed in the families that Jenna didn't follow. In the family's trade of Myers and Jewelers, she brought to life an often cold and boring day Today, one day while up following the orbs through a neighbor and court, Jenna fell, knocked unconscious, related, the bottom tucked in the mouth of a small crevice. Calmate. There were rescue parties gathered around the village, but they didn't make it to her before she awoke one of the orcs was floating in the sunrise when she spotted it. The orb did not vanish like normal. It sunk into the pool of water below it. As Jenna Shifter head, she was caught by a vision of the water, which what itwas she didn't fully recall, but she knew it happened. The orb spoke earlier. No, it's supposed to learn. She had heard of them from ones who traveled out of the commune a lot. Followers of the great old ones she must. She must have met a great old one. She must be a follower. With the new ambition sparked by the realization that she had communicated with a deity, Jenna climbed her injured south out of the quarter back home. The next day was still with sad goodbyes. Jenna decided that she needed to leave her family in order to find her dating and spread the gift. You were upset, given her farther than her isolated existence from The smell of your dinner, was held in a final farewell as a final farewell, and everyone was in attendance. Her mother and father's her car in half. Her two brothers, Donner and brand her older sister, Kirsten. The actual and family of Orc and of Pork angered and their daughters and son. Some of Jenna's closest friends live a healthy in job in your bones. Even the elders shield Willow Stark, la Bright Valley tied strider and tighten horn on Lee Elder Broad Peak was not in attendance. She was ill from her last travels. Look, everyone is cool. You need games, e, hear what you say. Cool. Unique set for Kirsten. Her older sister? Yes, her older sister Kirsten.
Right now, But we know our names. Turning into something. I have a theory.
You were starting to have a theory.
My theory is that this is not a deity. And it is some kind of like crazy changeling monster from the woods. Something
she follows full on. Yeah. You confirm? No, I will confirm that she followed something blind that no one else we see.
So she's crazy waking
to the Orson you can see. Uh, you see, Aaron, you can see when the orbs air around. Oh, you can't
see Aaron. Is
her hearse ago driving handsome. So again, when the orbs Levi Aaron, you don't see the orbs and you guys never seen So actually, one person's on towards that was Bradley uppercrust the third.
Oh, yeah. When he when he has,
like, deity vision, he saw a room that was just filled with bright. And when you when you went to it, you found Zegna alone in a chair.
Great. Yeah. Yeah, because they are
so think. There
the Paladin determined they were evil.
He wouldn't know.
Yeah, because he is
t e. Still think it's Claire is that Bradley is still running through the forest, but make it
yet He just comes back periodically to eat, then goes running back out to the first. I think
so I'll go back sentence Only an elder Broad Peak was not in attendance. She was ill from the last travels and was not predicted to fight her age much longer. Throughout the night, the families ate and sang and danced untold stories. Some of the few that have left the village before get who have left the General Village before. Brought Genesis gifts that were given to them. First time that they had left the village. It was all very sweet, and Jenna appreciated it more than you. Last night has eventually and Jenna slept impatient as she waited for the morning she leave. The only existence she ever the first few months were lonely. The village she was from was definitely more isolated from the rest of the world. Jenna could have ever imagined she and the Orcs had come up with new ways to stay entertained. Jenna started by changing her name. She had wanted to do this very first day that she was injured in a quarry and saw the vision, but knew how much names meant to arresting people. Since the vision. She felt like something was missing, so it should reflect in her name. She moved a letter from each of her names and replaced it with an X, then jumbled the letters to represent her curvy, confused state. Zegna had just created what she would call one of the first rights of her religion. As time passed, more of these first rights were added to the list, along with more information on her as more information on her as she claimed infinitely hold religious test. It was fun for her creating all but she That's what you think she did it with The help of yours is what you're gathered. These or present. No one can see except when they have a year and evil sight. Bradley. It was some creating it all, but she considered that maybe the great old one wouldn't approve and that would be bad. So she started passing her scriptures by the words Dancing in fluting was view. Disapproval, while no reaction were guiding her to a less fortunate event, was determined to meet disapproval. The most tortures of these incidents was attempting to discern the name of her great old one. The process nearly killed her, but then eventually discovered how to obtain this information. She would lay down states and start arranging. The process took weeks, but she was determined more and more or to reforming the more sticks. She placed incorrect areas. There was a sea of orbs around her, creating a cacophony of noise. With each success and failure, Zegna discovered she was done after placing her 18 stick, and the orbs almost seemed to implode with her at their centre. What remained was a conglomeration of characters that she would call fruit tart and at this point is that he was confident her journey would continue, and she find her satisfaction That's the story of that, yet that she's just a
very interesting person. We have.
There is a stronger there's a strong chance is a psychopath.
That's fine. You know, there's a warlock E did tell your moral opportunity employer? Yep, yep, yeah way. Yep. Centeon Whale. An evil person. And in that case,
actually, you guys are still with the fire, and everyone's just kind of like open mouth listening to our story because we'll assume that it goes on for a little bit. But she's just going to go through her whole story until you find her in that rabbit village. If she writes the she talks name on the grounds, No, she tells you that it was only it was such a great undertaking for her to attempt to do that like it was like it was like they know that she knows it, so the orbs don't need to do anything. You're not like you would see the orbs do anything anyway.
How do you spell
F u T h a r k
F u T h a R? That
is the funny way of stuff. That is not how it's spelt with with random letters What you know is that there's 18 lines that make up the work.
You have it in there.
Does she have any purple crystal? I mean, they blew their blue,
right? Yeah. Yeah.
I can't do anything. Can't you do something with this? Makes something happen in person besides, like, you know, because she broke it in turn to dust? No, she doesn't think school did not. Yeah, make this really basically see, it was like that. The top screen. That's what we need. No, it's ruining. Yeah, but is practically so what you guys do? Anything else there You guys like? Okay, time for bed
at that firm. Wait. I
want to eat food. You can eat food. Bracing. She's very intrigued by the amount of times you're saying crazy because she doesn't know where you got it from A lot this game, But she likes that. It's positive of fruit tart, and, um, you can't see it, but the orbs, like, definitely do like things every time you say praise, Hail, food, targ. So she she's just reading the reaction of the orders every time you do this and they're they're
happy. How was she able to read the text
she can't it doesn't actually spell food are like its just its symbols. And she decided that these symbols making sounds she's a schizo. Just let her be. See, she's heavily devoted to what he believes is a religion, not what she believes is a religion is a religion. Well, it's our religion Now. There's at least two people who believe in it. So So do anything else Just go to bed now. Anybody else? 70
five, Everyone he sent from
They got a big friend, uh, formalized.
I get where I
am, Bradley whose naked somewhere
and kept who's forever
still giving him as a number way numbers. We need the numbers.
Um, What's what's the bourbon? Yeah. No, not every choose with Theo. U Boat is the way. Yeah, Yeah, it is. Wasn't nobody listened with Oh, Moses Moses separate Zegna where the ones around
fires. So Okay, that Moses I have most dose as I know. Yeah,
most This is a no no, I left is there? She is in Eric aka And, um kay is There was
also e no miss spelled with a G, right? Yeah. They always fell over the k k k. I think we owe
you guys a little bit. Yeah, everyone knows
the ministry. But my daggers, because I'm scared of e
have been stable for a while. Yeah. Tunnels explosion mistreated. That's not part of her manuscript. So it might become part of a man. Appreciate, Mrs. So the next morning you are all rudely awoken by the sound of people. What do you do? Yeah. Wait the window. Run outside. What do you
also look out the window? I guess you waste
your time. Hey, from just that. So outside, you kind of running into. And you guys see you just, like, run into, like, a crowd of people that are kind of possible everywhere, like a lots of people. So outside, You can see that there are workers digging up the surrounding area of treat. There are carts filled with all sorts of building materials on the road to house that has been barricaded off.
The meaning of this is
leave the building. You're going outside, and then I
can just see who The leaders
I'm already outside, so I'm gonna ask the meaning of this is just just
Yes. Everything else the rat nto, actually.
So Yeah. Um, you shut that out. You got your derek daggers, and everyone kind of backs away from you, but continues what they're doing. And one of the workers who passes by it was like, Well, the But you don't pay for the expansion, so we're expanding. What do you want? This is built this castle. You believe castle walls? Well, we're gonna build you a perimeter suitable for the third ranked guild. And then whatever kind of layout you guys want is what we're gonna make
a word. I say, thank you. Yeah,
like a different person walks by, like, no problem, man
tart experience that we have to do it. So
you say town. And when you do that, like enough people, like, move. Like enough of the builders walk past you for you to notice that there are a bunch of other people at the barricade who are not coming in. And they all kind of look at you Weird when you say health food tarred and they're all like talking with each other. What's that? Like? You resent? You see, like someone really scrawny kid, just like raises. This is like a
little the dark s Oh, God.
What do you do that? Could I? Okay, so you're up with the people at the barrier. Oh, yeah. I'm gonna run over there. Say, what are you guys doing here? Is anyone else go with him?
Okay. I just kind of wander along this idea.
Okay, well, that started. It obviously is. We were ready. Thio do. The
test of initiation for eyes is Wait. What, you want to run our
girls? Yeah, he says that you just hear, like, wow,
like that. Frosty
say so rambling bunch of miscreants. Are
we just gonna stand there? And some
people cheer when you say rambling.
Wait, all of you Listen,
you guys, I'm a mercenary. I know howto Hayes. Okay.
Oh, God. Now
we contestants, we could test him to see if there were You hear some? Oh, uh, also a bunch of losers like, Yeah,
yeah. Everybody get on your faces right now.
Mechanic wise, you are each going to be able to essentially win by the seat of your pants because you were expecting this actual test of initiation. Yeah, we got initially that
way. I want the last one to be last, and you should be first weed out. All the bad people wait all the feet weed out all the failures like you don't think anything.
Sorry, guys. Accepting these people into the test. How many other? There are 100 and 64.
Oh, sweet baby. Test
them all. All right, you're opening the gates to treat our, um, well, she do you think it's true
power? That's how things are a lot like we can fit them in. I mean, I can't
fit too many people
as they should. We take them into the forest,
I will say there's probably a clearing in fours. Yeah, there's probably like a small clearing near you. Is that like everyone was planning on? Expanding into that isn't currently being. You
want me to go there and then
I'm gonna call. I bring over and have him make like, remember that sequence and Hercules, where you like it may set the contraptions and like everything smashes having a way. We're gonna D'oh! Quick aside. The rest of the guild has woken up and they all run out. And health food type. We got liver crews half retired, like now really into it really into the dark. She's writing greetings.
It would appear that all of these people want to join our guild. And apparently we have to test Hm. Like clearly, Millar is very unsure about what's happening because our hazing was we didn't know what's happening and no one knew anything. Where is this is very much like they're ready for it. So I'm just, like, completely confused.
So as you're talking, you're looking around the actually some someone role of perception. Well, because you guys are all like doing like a football huddle with the rest
I have two. So, Mary, you noticed that something doesn't feel right in your circle. Seems too big. And there's another person in your theory in the huddle. But you recognize them and they are. No,
it should be.
You know, this this person is holding a drink in their hand and you look at them and they are a tall, dark haired, half work woman that you recognize as COMESA. The who is the leader of the Onyx Rose, the one that did the test for the ritual, the gills ritual for you guys and, uh, back it up back at that lake sculpt. Technically, I'm not sure how long I've mentioned that. Yeah, And you guys notice her. What do you do? You just keep talking.
Is this a trick like this? Yeah. State TV saying just, you know,
she she just looks like
hell. Hey. Yes, there. What? Have guitars. All right. I just wanted to swing by and say Congrats
on becoming around three. Guilt like, now you can do what we do. What do you do exactly? Just we have a town and party and tricking people
give a whole town. Yeah, you know, you remember the time? I remember. Like, I guess I forgot That has their spending your shit into that right now to get a town.
Oh, yeah. We're gonna have, like, 100 recruits. Never really needed him. Yeah, we're exciting school. Yeah. I just want to come by and say Hey, good job. Yeah. How far are you from us? Oh, where you don't remember where the lady is? No, I wasn't everything, man. We need to build a road
way should Yes, we should have a road that connects our two towns. You'll have a very frequent visitor named on
Justus referenced. The only reason why this is happening is because this is the only guilt you have a positive reputation with currently. So you guys have a plus two with the onyx rose were others. Guys? Yeah,
we have, uh we have a plus one with that Kerala is that you have
to believe in what? The teething village of Kerala. Yep. Yeah, plus two. With that.
I write that down.
The Brennans are very much a minus.
Yeah, I see. I have minus one wrapped with grand plus one with Kerala.
Yeah, but you have a plus two with the onyx words. You have some minuses with the mother. Wow. Yeah. Quit the Hercules task thing and build a road. Wait. Now I gotta tell you, I'm much more interested in the in the obstacle course. Yeah, that's that's the finish. Asking for section
everyone. Is your d m. Jonathan Just jumping in here to remind you to follow some social media. We have Facebook and Twitter at failed Kurtz, and we have a website at www dot half wits failed chris dot com. And if you feel like supporting us at all, we have a ko phi. And that is at Keough Dash f i dot com forward slash half wits failed, Critz, Let's get back to the way
we get back to that. Are we gonna do like they're expecting, Like, membership and shit? We don't have any sort of hierarchy here other than you guys lied. Yeah, for the leaders of the round, like the Knights of the Round table was like, six years.
There's gotta be. Yeah,
I know. The Knights of the Round table had significant more than
six. But anyway, there should be, like, a ranking system of, like, novices. Oh,
how we're gonna rank the new guy's yeses.
They're either gonna be dirt or knights of the
round team. No, no, Like novices. Like, I feel like like in this go round, whoever we let joins from here, but could be labeled nomis for whatever good. We should make symbols. We can make symbols,
So body's gonna be like So what are we What are what are good? What's the syndicates? Don't we have a banner way smooth the blue but with back black round
supposedly have little badges to s
Oh, that's ours. And then underneath it we should have something that designates us.
Yeah, like what if we put like bars underneath it? So, like, a certain color meant a certain level.
Yeah, but how many levels? We're gonna have a key. Five. There's 10. There's 10 gills, right? Is ranking. So should we just make that
that seems excessive? A lot like five is even a lot.
No, there's there's, like, 20 something ranks. And now if you guys want
that is so
you guys do have all of the guild members here. You guys can roll charisma, toe contest ideas with each other and depending on how you roll, will get a certain percentage of the other guilt may disagree with you. Okay. What do you want? Anything for,
ranks? Yeah. Five. I'm really for five plus. My intimidations are
over 20. Your notice? You're definitely not intimidated this time. This is this
is around that persuasion is a too. So I remember Is my charisma overall is minus. You got 17. Why are you really I mean, I guess five this fine. Like I can't think of a better number. So?
So we'll have novice training.
Training should be before. Yeah,
totally. Trainee and now we're gonna come
Adept isn't one that's usually kind of flake.
That's you, that is three training. Novice is like the sky room, like skate free has, I think, five rankings and they have names for each of the
What is it called
the lookup skyrim.
We don't want to steal a breast cream man. Well,
I think you're already following very close to So I was saying the case is a thief. Like I said So open world.
I just read a lot of books that have this kind of victory. I'm not seeing things. I mean, then then we could have like, Officer, I think
there is novice apprentice, a depth expert, and
I feel like masters Weird, though.
Well, I mean, like, you know, Guildhall calls the three years of national deal color called the Grandmasters.
So the masters of the guild right National
Guild hall at, like an official bureaucratic level calls you guys the masters of the syndicate. We're
be all right. So that makes sense. So it's novice. So right now we have training novice, adept question mark and masters training novice expert at debts expert in the Master. Exploit that, master. Okay, so the masters would be us three on? Yes.
You're seeing your bastard. Did you do what you guys
training officer? Your senior?
I've seen your level. Or it would be expert level.
I mean, I would
swap out expert for something for officer.
Yeah, like senior or something. I feel like that would work.
Yeah, The first paradigm uses officer for their non leader, Remember? So the way the first paradigm is that they have one member that is considered their master, which is Dorian. And then the four other members are considered officers to do. Hi, Officer to screw them.
How are they, like, 10. If they only have four members,
they don't have 500. That's how they're top. Should have half. Sir, I like that. Let me get more important than that. You first period. First President's officers. It's a
second. Yeah, Yeah,
we'll call ours. Hi, Officer.
That screw flow really complicated.
Just isn't in the depths of the officer and in
high. It would be better than that. I don't like
that again. Harrow. The six minus one. No way. So then, should we just leave it as expert then I just don't like that word
expert. Legal officer. He knew his officer yet. So we have training. Novice. Adept Officer Master. Yeah,
s o the current members of your where they being place,
they would be going into trainees.
No, our current members.
So right now, the way I haven't listed is you guys Adri, Alanya, Millar A and external founders. Because you were there when the gun was found,
so I feel like
we should be level six. Founder Brett Bradley is I have, you know, globally listed as an officer because he wasn't there when it was founded. But you were considering him high because he's made party number. You're considering him hired in the members. So right now, I just have founder's officers members so that we get renamed whatever you choose.
So you like Isaac and Everen should be officers. Okay? No one else that we've really done anything with should be my Also,
Bradley and Isaac are officers.
Does everyone agree with that
and then sew at upside
eggs in you? Enough suit. I rolled on 19 hits minus Well, it's the next one. Okay. If that 20
one come on, you roll the natural Thio. She has a better modify. I have zero. Doesn't matter what I mean. Like, Yeah, but
modifiers. Who do you agree?
I don't care. So roll. It is less than it does me And more than 10.
You're the tiebreaker.
I don't want to be the type of your show. Nothing that I'm out of the I s
that Zegna does not care where she is in the guild. And until we fully trust her, we should let her up into the officer.
I mean, I trust you're fine, but yeah, you're
the only one that is addressed. Her,
um, two against one. We could do it as me. I mean, we could argue, need having Zegna and like most does. And if you can't pronouncements on Brody as the the lower because they've never gone on anything with us, that's what
I originally said. Yeah, so,
like, that could be a valid reason for them Not be officers, too.
But you don't have to row, because if you just know what everybody's saying,
I'm saying Mary,
Okay, So is her.
E cannot believe I just rolled.
I rode the fucking thio. Really?
Masters officers. What's after um, officer
Master, no down. Going down is adept and the novice and then training. It's an apt 80. I
just feel like the depth I know. Adept. It just rolls off the tongue because death is a different
were adept at an ad and add up to something else because it's like it's a title. So I've been saying that you're an adept because you're adept at whatever it is sent. Somebody
else said added a debt I hate tea.
Sent a deft
adept is the descriptor. Adam is gonna
Piper. What? Weird.
Okay, so we have Zegna isn't at
it. Wait. So have we arrested yet? Louis?
Yeah. Um, basically, I was saying that in case you guys did decide to try and scuffle with a receipt,
she probably would have beat us up. She's a grand sensory. Wait, Everything.
saying it so much that I pronounce
it wrong, but is it far s So we have a Zegna body, shay, and most of us, is it? If you d a r k t th there's an h in there, just doesn't say
should we throw? Um, what's his face in there? It's not anyone or Should we knock him down? Always gone. Gone. Okay. I have been keeping him on the list because he's just a human. He's a body. He's in office now. He
has mysteriously vanished. And
And he was
already a nomad. Like that's what we determine when he displayed. So
he just wandered off in That was never came back. We're gonna leave him his nuts,
sir. Yeah, let's put an Islamist. All right.
Who's gonna be the first trial we're gonna run three trials for
this is no one knows he's dead, right?
We've established a ranking system. Um, you can read off. That was Yeah. So train Lee or no, no, this novice in training. Yeah. Yeah. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Before we start training these guys or putting them through the trial by fire, how do we want to lay out the village? Just decide that afterwards Waken do the way we could Well, do the layout afterwards. Okay, President? Yeah, Yeah, we'll do it. Live it after the game. Okay. Yeah, have ideas, because that's bad recording. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. You guys ready to train these new recruits? Um, these maggots who's taking the first
I'm fucking coming. You go around
or we could roll. Now, are they literally trainings for the amount of time that you're deciding whether or not you want them? Or is that when they get accepted, the goats
forget it doesn't get that.
Okay. Oh, I thought we were just trained. And we're live
way giving up everything to come here. Oh, God. Including their
lives. There are some people that just, like, why don't the crowd
and I'm just like, over there vigorously shaking my head going. No, that's not sure. I would like to address the crowd. Oh, dear,
no. If you are not willing to die, then leave right now we're rolling.
I'm gonna follow up with that is, say, if you're not willing to kill
way standing here like way need
loyal people to Argyll. But if they're gonna be like spies or something, I rolled, uh, personal. Our eminent intimidate. So 13 actually does being anything wrong with me?
I'm determining what I should be rolling. I think I wanna roll perception to see how they react when I say what I say.
Oh, actually, you know what? Here's the thing to do. I can't change my mind. Okay, Go back. Um, suit every rule in No. What are you doing? So I would like to do strength, and I'm gonna punch a tree while I say it. I mean, I'm gonna can't count your intimidation role is part of that. So it was your intimidation. It wasn't. I rolled in 11 and my intimidation is plus two. Yep. Here at 13. Yeah. And then you are aiding so also.
Well, I'm doing a completely different
Well, you're like talking with me.
Oh, it is related, but it's like
that was like, a follow up. Like, I'm gonna eat him by
adding, What are we trying to
do that? What's the goal of this
way before you even start?
Yeah. Then I will aid
your old eight.
But I wanted to do perception to see how, like, perceived the crowd as well can feel that.
Yeah, he does a separate action.
Okay, so do you. I got to
go. Okay. So you don't
okay? But now I will perceive saying you have to be willing to kill us. Well,
your goal is to, you know, yeah. So if, like, anybody gets like, too scared because they're not willing to die. Then they just
run away. I'm not going to die. T o, get out here, then you're here.
Okay, so 52 people leave Good. Have 1 64 out of 160.
We could We have guys. We need these people that we don't We don't need way. You seven fights. Why? Yeah. So that we can gain ranks.
How many people do we need?
We couldn't leave
way round them up and the workers for I'm gonna use my shocking grasp on him. No, I'm saying I'm not saying like
we enslave them. I'm saying, like, Okay, they just won't be part of, like, a fighting party. We'll just be like maintenance, like janitors.
We're gonna have
a village. Do you want You want a right time? You like your people just walked away. You can be made in staff. Yeah.
I mean, if you think about a little storms
because another, another thing to consider is like you're saying, like the honest rose runs a tab. Yeah. We're gonna need people that they have innkeepers. They have bartenders. They have Baker's like, yeah,
this'll shock. You grassed me all you want
That's what you're actually looking for. Okay, I will keep in mind. What did you roll? It's okay. I'll keep that in mind. And throughout The challenge is I'll let you know
how many people, how
many people are left. 111. 52 people left and there was 100 60 wasn't 6718 52 people. There's 112 warrior people left. Did the 52 people joined for maintenance and odd jobs? One second, actually. You know what? I think we're going about this all wrong. We should ask the group first who's not actually like who, like is a baker and
whatever. So you guys are all just your thes ideas at, like there
are people just turning around turning back, you know, blood. Definitely.
While they're talking about I can't pay you would I'm just gonna go home and hang on us again. Clearly, we said pause. We need, like, a little We need to have a little lab Founders conference riel. Quick, give us like, Let's come game
guys back in the huddle. Yeah, else. Are you allowing any other? The newly lowest ranking lower members to be in the huddle. Which on the new, um, sleeps No, no,
no. Wait for me.
so these air masters the Masters were discussing. Okay, Official. All right, so, yeah, we should ask the crowd. Right? Who, Um Who does what?
I think it makes sense to ask if there if there is anyone who wants to, like the part of our guild, but not be part of the course. So let's just fighting forces. Let's see. Let's see. Oh, whoever just wants to
be like a member, but not actually fight or do any, and we'll just automatically be a trainee. But whoever goes through the trial by fire, it will be a
novice. But what if treating the big tree is really bad? Then they should all be trade.
I mean, we're not training. Training is what you decided a ranking. Yeah, That's like they're just I feel like you guys should rename trainee to remember. Okay, But you're just a part of it.
Yeah. Yeah, that works. Yeah.
So everyone who doesn't want a fight is a member, and I think technically what you have is you have a novice officers that depth officers and
officers. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Essentially adding officer down.
But you guys and then there are members not. Do you see a restructuring again for these? They're not both members. Yeah, You just ignore the
way, not ignoring the uppers. You know who I am? You're gonna turn back around, and we're still still huddling. We're still making decisions. Okay, so we'll offer that those who don't want to be, like, part of the fighting and eventually just Well, then, out of character. Okay, We need time to figure this out. Just bring it on. A character
out of character.
Jesus. So those who don't want to be members but don't want to be part of, like, the fighting adventuring group will just be members Those who complete our mission initiation trial by fire.
That's what it's called. Uh, so all of the other deals call it test of initiation, which is why they mentioned it. Now
I'll put in parentheses. There
will be fired. The house.
Um, I may
mine. You have
the fire. Multiple. Throw them at that. Might actually make anything out of the field. Okay, So those of you with the initiation test will be novices. Okay, so we should ask. Maybe we should call
it officer initiation. Test the officer.
You have members, you have masters. And then there are different ranks of offices. Yeah, so I almost think you're high officer Idea would fly. Oh, no. Well, let's get it, OK, But we can't officially call it. Was it you said offers your trial
like officer initiation testing. Yeah, but it's unofficially called job. Sure,
because you can get your name in that. Yes. All right. So I guess back in character will turn will turn around. Is there anyone here who wants to join but is not necessarily interested in the danger fighting getting hurt. So if you have skills aspect, which is bartending
and baking and things like that
But you want to be a part of art, you should get everything. Ah, whole staff of gardening health. Yeah, everything. Especially if anyone's really good at gardening. Really? Really. You
do. Only one person moves leaves so out of the 52 that we're going to turn away, only one of them decides. No. Nevermind places a
dagger. No, no, no, no. Now
that you have you convinced 52. 51 other people to the state. That would have otherwise.
Okay, Cool. Sorry. 1 64 minus 53. 50 to
1 50 No,
no. Minus. You said there were 160 4 100.
Okay, so do you think Do you guys think that we should split up the group into three rounds and conduct our testing at the same time on smaller groups of free? Like not three people, but, like, Well, it's one talked about by three no. 34 37
Yeah. I mean, it might be it might be better to do. Our are part of the test. Like lying groups. Line has to be last sucks for you.
E mean, what we're going to do narratively is Louis, you could describe yours last. Okay. You're basically you've described pieces of it, and then people just cycled through it to your hands for three more times. Yeah. Okay, that seems fair. Starting starting the first
trials first. I have no idea what you just rolled. Slow rolling. Harold. Any eight. Also our old nine.
Your Christmas. Do it. How do we both want the
same thing I got eight stealth minus ones first. Damn it over's looking I just 11.
Okay, So, Kylie, what position do you want for a second?
I lost second.
Okay, Drill. What position does Adrian take first with you? All right, so I get it. I just get a group. Yeah, E
you're just gonna studio?
So first things first, right? Here's what my thing is gonna be a Bryn graciously made. How did it go? He had, right? I'm not gonna todo is gonna be that. There's gonna be
this. This is gonna be that lasted five. Okay, so All right.
My trial's gonna have four trials. Okay? Okay. There's gonna be dummies. There's a row of dummies and I need to see everybody's slash, right? Okay. And then the dummies bill is gonna surprise him. It's gonna knock back and then come back forward. So they're gonna have to dodge after they slash. Okay, The second trial is climbing up a rope. OK, they got the right ring about top of the road, but the road was 20 feet off. Okay? Too long. So they climbed 20 feet of broken climb back down. 2nd 1 is monkey bars, but The whole bottom is glass. Just like smash blast. And then the last trial is they have to swing on a rope over a pit of
fire. Did you see there were 12 year olds?
They're young kids. Look, but young kids mean, like, 16.
Okay. And then the whole time that this is happening, I'm gonna be throwing rocks. I That's my trial. Okay, So what What's your goal? Still weed out the weak? Yeah. My goal is my goal is to make sure that people have mental fortitude and the strength that's gonna be needed to actually go on adventures and do things for our jokes. But also, like, they're a bunch of really ridiculous trials. So people need to, like, have you know, Yeah, just a mental fortitude to do. Charles, do you have for four? Okay, so
so are people getting eliminated after each one. People see what I want is like my plan was to do something that relies on people's like mental
me is whether or not they want to mend. That will continue after the trial. Yeah, So it's people deciding whether or not they're going to keep going or not. Okay, That's fair. Okay, So, Louis, your goal is to weed people out. Yeah. So roll for your house. What'd you get? I wrote to your first travel. What is it again?
But that's not fair. He gets fuller.
I mean, you can do whatever you want. My first trial is the slashing and then the dodging the tests like the combat ability. So in the slashing and dodging area,
Bilbo Oh, my God. Look when your choice will in. Yeah, Chevalier. Because
for four p people out of the 112 drop after. Awesome. I'm gonna chase them out.
Oh, my God. Every week, pieces of shit, I'm gonna run them into the tree line. And I wanted to never turn around. Don't you know I
went to boot
camp next next trial. What is it? Climbing a rope, climb a 20 foot rope. But I'm doing six people leave maggots, all of them. So we're down Thio. What's for 6/10 of 102 people? Okay, thistles. The monkey bars. It's a mile long. A mile long with you now, is that still Really? Yeah. Okay. The quarter mile. A lot of monkey bars. Okay. And it's over. Broken less? Yep. Can I rolled? Not somebody interfering with the triumph. It more than you're already doing with your rocks that I would liketo can roll to, like, kill somebody? No, I would like somebody today. No four people left after that One. Words were So a lot of people made it through that the people that left, I'm throwing glasses.
Oh, my God.
Okay. Next And then the last one is swinging on a rope over a pit of fire. Just hold on. Yeah, okay. But, I mean, it's kind of like it's like Ninja Warrior where they have, like, swing off like leap. So it's not, like, easy. Yeah, and I'm also gonna be at the front and whoever I feel like it's gonna make it. And I don't like the basement pushing. You know, 13 people leave. Yes. No, They fall into a pit of fire. The
o telling people why? Because then no one's gonna want to join our goddamn deal, people. So
there's 85 people remain. Okay, Cool. See, because it good. So you second Mara, number two, what is your test? Is it a
test that pissed? You know what's on that history test. We're gonna have these books. No, I'm going to cast nearer image. Okay, Um so until the smell as duplicates, you three illusory duplicates of yourself appear in your space. They move with you and mimic your actions. Shifting positions. It was impossible to track which image Israel. So I'm going thio, and, uh, I'm gonna cast that. And so they're now four of me, and I'm going to run around. I'm, like, scramble around or whatever, and I'm gonna have us go and four different corners and each everybody has to pick which one they think is the real me. Cruise around. No touching, no touching allowed. But if you have any other means to try
and figure out which is which
looks like if you're, like, really perceptive or like if you
have, like, detect magic, that kind of thing, you'll succeed. Where is, like, if you have no kind of like that kind of skills you
todo is your goal to weed people out Also know I think yourself just four years,
you know, I just want to tend to see where people skills lie.
Okay, I'm gonna have you rule living. Okay? No, one dropped out.
Who? How many got it right?
Only 17 of them got it. Right. So do you want to prevent it from continuing down the path? No. Save moving them all. You have any other tests there? You all to Adrian?
Well, I didn't realize we got more than one test until dumdums here. Making up more.
Well, this is like an obstacle course.
You've got the truth piece. Yeah. You can add a trapeze is yours. Yeah, I didn't think about it yet. Well, that's the difference
is you. I'm a walk to use the discord for you guys to create your small town because it's running late way. So we got a horrible
Sorry I'm working on him, though. I really enjoyed
a long drive home, and I get a bit,
you know, you don't do
that s so I guess my other I'm also going to have I'm gonna get everyone to bring out four vials liquid, and one of them is going to place the minute they get a Princess Diaries. These guys What? No, I find it. So four vials all look the same. One has poison in it, and I'm going to make them all I make him treat. Trying to get their goal is to figure out which one has the poison in it.
Only 13 of them figured out.
I was going to say those who got both tests wrong should go, but fast. Things like too much. So you don't have 13. Okay? Never mind now, okay? No.
Do you want to expel a number of people? No, because you could you could just pick a number. And what that will represent is there are people who perform significantly poorly. If you want to just pick a number for you. Want me to roll to find out how many perform significant
role to find out how many fat perform significant report.
16 of them were significant before. Okay. So you can come out. Yeah, everyone walks back. Don't need the most hell. I'd like to you know that there are 69 potential. Adrian, what is your tests? Also, there are 13 people who very quickly identified the poison to 13.
You were paying attention. Were
you thinking about what I want? Todo Okay, kiss. I want to use this opportunity of, like, double quick
question. Was there any overlap between the people who knew which one was me and
what day who got their poisons right
after every trial that off to seven of them doubles.
Okay, I'm gonna keep a special eye on seventh. Can
I roll to make everyone who finished each trials held? Say help? No. Can they say it anyway, He could help with her. Everyone say it. You're the collective voices. People hail food, Tark. Yes. Yeah, it's just that one with the nerdy kid. Still made it so far. Oh,
so I'm gonna use this as, like, a threefold thing. Kind of. The first thing is, I'm particularly looking out for, like, water to really skilled and coming like practices for B should not necessarily Gilda. Oh,
there are Find out. You're really There are two
people who have done exceedingly well at both the obstacle course and solve both of the largest. There's only two.
Okay, so I'm gonna keep a special eye on those two and the basis of my test. It's gonna be stealth based, and it's gonna be I want to see how they can do with throwing daggers first, but I want the targets of the dagger to be the symbol of Ah,
you know. So the daffodil. So I
don't want anyone recognizes it just
No. No one brings up anything about the simple,
can I? And there's no perceiving of anything weird. Should I roll? Perception are
No. I just rolled and none of them bring up the simple.
Okay, so they're gonna be testing the daggers each on their own with their own post. I guess throwing from, like, fell through five times from X amount yards and then they'll throw five more times, two paces back, et cetera.
Are you trying to weed people out for?
Just observed? I'm just trying to waste their time so I can go talk with two with Thio, but also keep a little bit of a background I on who's absolutely miserable. It fighting. And who's on?
Okay, so you're gonna look for it?
Yeah, with growing, you're specifically
figure of that first.
There are 10. Absolutely miserable. Froze.
Okay, I'm going to give those 10 bone marrow
okay and see how they perform with those.
And then I'm going to just as the two of you ever
visible with most.
Okay, I'm gonna just
think we're going to the kitchens or
No, thank you, Goto. Ever. And if they want, or they can go to whoever we're whoever's in charge of
you already have 52 people who are who are going to janitorial mundane things. So these people are not going to be those people.
They're not Definitely. They're just gonna go home, right? We can't give him an additional.
They came here for a thing.
Okay? I want that. They're gonna leave
five. You know, you
just want to
go talk to eat while they're, like, throwing knives. I want to go talk. Really? Like close, close proximity wise with the people really quietly. I
want to try and ask the
question that ties into my backstory to see what kind of people they are. But I don't want it to be too weird. You want that Should put originally thought what?
I mean, these these two are essentially, like the cream of the crop right now.
Okay, I'm gonna ask them with their biggest regret is
Oh, Jesus e
have one other follow up question to
weigh your what is an answer that would be very good in Europe or something along incentive. One of them rolled in 19.
I want somebody who has enough regret to understand thinking what their actions that will do. Like consequence wise. Okay, so something more gray than a mature Yeah,
that person would answer that, or I'm not sure if this will be the batter, a good person, but one of them and you get inside. How do you like it? Answers that they have no regrets, only experiences that driving forward. So that be the bad answer. The good answer
depends on what the other one is.
Well, I don't know if that was a good answer. Bad answer. So I could make a mediocre answer. The other person,
I'll say they just
they have no regrets. They have experiences Those experiences. Drive them forward.
I'll say that that was a good answer.
So the mediocre answer is he one of one of the people lists, like they were grant that they weren't able to help someone in their time of need, and that's just what they want. It's right here. That's a good answer. But
it's interesting. My follow up question is, why do you want to join the guild?
They have good answers about answers. I guess this means, Yeah. Well, you have a title. Were the revoke Aries if provoked your family again? One of them answers really well. A lot of answers. Meat, Yogurt. What are you people? No, they opposites.
I wanted me and
I will say they the one that answer good didn't answer as good as the woman who answered before. So the rolls were 19 and 12 and now the rules are 13 and ate very close.
I want an answer for this one. That's kind of like, almost that they don't know. Look, I'm kind of looking for, like, somebody like me starting out who was like lost means I want someone like
Okay, so one of one of them gives you an answer of, you know that they they're very much looking forward to contributing to the guild and stuff like that. Like it It's fine. Like, it's a fine answer. And then one of them does answer. They don't know. They just need somewhere to further
their visions. Some things. Okay, So is that the one that's not That's the one that said they didn't help somebody. Right? Okay. Are
you making choices? based off that list. Help someone and don't know whether they're look a mark on her cheek. Do you tell them. Okay, so there's just a person you have selected as she is. I'm gonna make all the names I don't want to make, like, a giant list of names and then eliminate. So
are you dessert? I think
I will say something. What? Is it okay
to the person?
Yeah. Okay, go for it.
I'm gonna say that I have a special quest, and I'm looking for maybe looking for somebody to and yeah, I'm looking for somebody to aid in my quest to become dangerous. Rolls up For what?
How are you? What are you using to tell them? This is a great shoes. Come on, A new role.
I'm gonna d'oh in sight to see what if they would be interested. Okay, so, 13
they look like they're interested.
Okay. Then I'll tell them that they will be hearing from me.
Okay, I'm doing anything else. Still lead anybody.
Um I'm going to turn around and say Now try to kill the person closest to you.
I just don't see.
I hope somebody dies. I really do?
I'm gonna ready and action, though. First
you ready? Ready to yell. Stop! Go!
Somebody rose 20.
They have to die.
Five people go to kill the person next to one of which, being the person that you were just
Okay, then this is up.
Two of them injure someone before they can stop you to split. You do anything with the two people that did not stop in time.
Are they like,
I mean, the people who didn't stop in time. If people only this time the people who got stabbed her come to you. I think they're good people. They take of the
flesh. Follow my orders.
So you guys have 64? We're in members.
that I will have to come up with names
so way don't
you know all of the names know
they exist? They need names.
You just name under
the name of the skinny kid. Unless I do it. If you made it, keep better. He didn't come in. That will roll the head of that. And you want him? He's their lackey. Yes. Okay, So
how many of the seven people who passed both tests? Both of my test made away,
everybody. No, because remember way describe each one. But really, they were happening. Oh, yeah. 64 people all together? Yes, past yes. Passed all three trials. And what were you saying? How many of the seven made it?
Yeah, okay. And one of them is the one that you're interested in. Yep. Right. Okay.
Scrawny kid was not the other one.
Okay, get because I'm serious about the
the other one or four. The other four
before you passed both my
type, What you want or you just want to keep cats. There are four that.
Yeah, I kind of want to talk to them, but I kind of want to know, Like what they are first. So, like, once you come up with like,
that's a little bit different. Yeah. So you just keep tabs? Yeah. Do you guys just mark other four? That yours? All right. So I just wantto make sure right? You got your assassin. Get right. Are there any? Yeah. Is it? You know, you get yourself in person. Hey, um, are do you wanna have, like, a group of the best people to be assassins under you underneath that person? You just don't want for the people who did like the Maskey stuff. Do you want a group of them? All right, So here's the thing. I think that's kind of a living what you're doing. You could immediately promote some if you want. Yeah, well, what I'm saying is, like, make. I'm just saying, like, put into groups like, Oh, you you can train these guys and so that you would roll.
Yeah, you might do that, naturally. Any Yeah. Yeah. Might
divvy them up. Any is.
I feel like you're makes sense to, like, divide them up based
on the streets,
like so those who are really good at, like, the the fighting and everything, but aren't necessarily good at, like, the magic. Or like I'll take that being CT, you'll take those. Normal does not. Yeah, yeah, I think I'm just I'm just particularly interested in those four because, like I think it I don't know. I think it's a nice idea to have lycan apprentices. That's what
I thought, too.
Yeah, like that would be kinda cool.
Yeah, I want to really just this. Okay, So we have to fly through the next part. Unless Mary could be nice and say like if you have no idea, we're gonna find it depends because I do want to end on a cliffhanger that we need to get the Oh, so you guys have Donnels that we're assuming that you're going thio work. We're in fiction. You have given plans to the builders and it's going to be a few days as they build. Um and you are You're like, the third day in and you're getting everybody settled into, like the temporary housing that you have put up and you know, something alert. People are figuring out where they're gonna bum cellphone. Brother owns supplies there. They were ready to camp out in case you guys said no until a certain time. Like they stuff, you know, a bunch of new people are just kind of like hanging out around a big fire pit. You guys have, and as you guys are, I'm assuming I'm going to say that you guys are looking over all of the people because I think all of you would be in shock like that. You just went from like a seven person guild to now having slows it 64. I'm
ecstatic. Hale for new
64. New combatant 52 step over 51. There's one person left, 51 staff, then ready to, like, figure out how to be a part of this guilt. Hale. Everyone to see how everyone super drunk as you guys are shouting Hail you back up and get back with them. And you kind of you're just, like, debriefing like it was like, wow, like this happened. And do you want other people to be around Or just you three
everything. Just us straight
through for now. Yeah,
Yeah, like none of the other higher ranking members. Okay, so just the three and you're about to call it quits and in the ground in front of you. And you guys are kind of far away from everybody. You're like, you're probably even in tree tower right now. Just how looking down at everybody. And in tree tower ah, bubble starts to form much like the ones were identical to the one where the figures pushed the ring to next er or push the stone that you later made into a ring tunics
and again pull a
figure takes shape in the bump and it presses on the end makes a circular move. What happened last time? We have mimicked it, right, and it gave me the thing. You just put your hand up. All right? So it put his hand on there and you put your hand on there and you were stupid. All right, You do that again. It's made. It's making an indentation, like in the bubble. Like if you want to open a rift, it's Yeah, a circular motion should be open. A rift. It might be a like env away from whatever it's called from Earth world. Yeah, Yeah, I open a rift. Yes, OK, it's dark enough. That would be pretty cool, though. It should have been until you open a portal and something different happens with or with this rift. It doesn't lead to Rift World, and it doesn't create a top. What? What it creates is that you can see, like the other side, like off the world is. Actually it's nighttime here and the place that you've just opened his daytime and it looks like, Yes, it looks like it's in this patient. Yes, it's the world that you know. What do you do? Is there a person in front of, you know. Oh, So whoever the figure was is gone. Well, the person in the bubble is what's standing there, and they made the motion. And once you made the motion of the boat will start drinking again, and they dispute with can. Can you have perceived my
exceptional? Yeah. Um, I'm gonna try proceeding. I gotta eat to five.
Okay, that's a big number 23 yet? Um, so, yeah, we'll just leave it at that. Okay? You can perceive that like you're looking at this, and it looks like you know the world. It looks like the place that you call home.
there is a glade. There's a nice open, like the old area and, like, see, like some horizon and distance in the background. You don't You don't recognize this place, but like, it feels normal to you.
Is there any sign of the pert dug the Seeker knows in the bubble?
No walking. Have a walk in and you're in a late Well, you didn't perceive anything weird. So the next Justin oblate looking around us Anything weird? So as as you look around, I'm assuming you're just walking further away. is anyone following him? Mix turns go. Yeah, I'm inside the rift
the days and, you know it's like
a regular. It smells and feels and looks like a regular world It's just It's like I'm gonna shout out Health are Jesus and, you know, it goes like a normal echo,
huh? You're an idiot. So they wanted us to
come here. But why?
They want to leave? Yeah,
I'm here in this world, but I don't see anything that I screwed up the
dirt. The ground, I think happening. Oh, yes. Okay.
You scoop up the dirt on the ground and you hit stone underneath it.
Like what? What kind? Like so? So
maybe I'm in a room. So maybe I'm in a simulation. Okay. Is it like, just like a long open areas? Yeah. It looks like you're in a field, Okay. Rolling hills and saying Freeze. And I think I have a Can you guys someone like a bird or something? She can be a bird.
I don't see you covered. I think I haven't blown around striking locate. I can conjure animals. I summon, say spirits that take the form of beasts and appearance.
I would like to say we're very close to the time of Mary wants to even.
Okay. Well, thank you Shouldn't have made this, so I just wanna throw like I must just have a rock. Yeah, right
in my pocket, or I'm missing one of the heads. Um, it chuck it at, like, just in front of him to see if it is like a wall. Just rolls. Okay. I'm gonna run and go pick it up, okay?
What happens if we go back out and close the portal again? Don't do that. Well, I don't know what the stupid figure went gone. It's going.
I want to know if it wanted us to go in there because I wanted us to go to this new location or one as
you do. You can't tell because there is. If you can't read facial expressions on it, it's very easy. Like you just know there's a figure. Um, can I have one of one of them? You can't tell if it lasts because it wanted todo to left because you did the right thing. Left is the wrong thing. You can't
next year in one way, I give next turn one of the dead. The gems? Yeah, I still have my pocket before that lost. So I'm gonna take one and bury it destroyed. And
so as your like, you goto berry. And as you dig to like, berry in areas, you actually find a small indentation about the shape of that. Still putting it in, right? It's cool. That is a slab. You don't know what you're perhaps just in the dirt. Yeah, I'm putting it in. So you put it in the end, it starts to glow, so I'm gonna clear out more. Is there more? So you guys gonna help?
Clear? Yeah, sure.
But that means all of us in
before I go in, I pull a piece of paper out of about a piece of person out of my pocket. Book Got into rift B R b. Don't worry. Oh, well, don't worry. Wait, don't worry. Question. Mark Question. Mark.
We could say
yeah, different too on yet. It comes off Bender. She's
a master, so she doesn't know it yet.
Because that title was this new.
Yes. So I'm gonna just be so confused when she gets back from her bender and I know yes, I write a little note. Say, gone to check something in rests. Judge Anya's in charge. Don't worry. Cost your mark charge.
Don't let her spend all our money on booze. Yeah, there we go. Okay.
So you're only helping extra day? Yeah. You uncover a giant circular slab that has four slots that were identical to the one that you just placed in. And as you keep digging, you've noticed that some of the rocks and everything that you thought were just rocks. It looks like what you're on top of parley ruins of some kind. So there there used to be some building, and these rocks that look like they were just rocks on in the background are actually pillars or columns that have been destroyed. And this stuff
like that is a circle.
There's a big circle that has four indentations. We have four rocks. Oh,
the's aren't the same ruins that we found Brody at, Is it?
Oh, because you asked that. It looks very similar to the room. You found it yet? It's not the same. It's absolutely not the same Kenyatta MODY. It looks very similar. The rift's not closed. You could go get body if you want. Yeah, I'm just,
you know, you have with our come here. Ah ha. You're not a woman since you. What if there isn't It intimidate e
roll the 17. Hail way. Need your help? Okay, somebody's in there.
Okay. Booty, till you take a look at this. Do you remember where you were when you got trapped in that? I don't remember anything. I remember what you say. But you don't remember anything before?
No. I just remember being being where I waas and being tracked.
Then how do we know she was a princess?
The constellation that lit up when you freed her was a crown way. Might need a second.
Tell her she doesn't. Can we do a cognitive memory therapy session?
Stay past nine o'clock for a cognitive like they
do. I can't just be yes or no. She represents. She doesn't know. Oh, geez. I'm sure he'd make us come up with all of the light questions to ask. And I have never washed that. Still, I would be no use. Well, let's just put in the rocks. And I am with you here because we need a second. Maybe we should have someone stand just outside the rift in our world's affected think goes around up.
Everything I would trust ever over all.
Yeah. Let's, um, let's however enough and be like, Okay, stand here on the rift and watch.
Like the one you call Stinky is that you secretly love
Holly. It was Tanya. And, you know, it was you. You started. It is my love. And then on your picked it up. Anyway, so we get everyone to stand on the other side of the risk, but watching. Okay? You can't say anything really bad. Half
watch me. Okay? You put in the gems that you found and the ground starts to shake. Some of the columns that were previously destroyed start to reform those on on the column. A rift opens and a monster I mean, your dexterity. Oh, so then I rolled it. E you have plus four initiative 20
to four. I got a six. OK, but
so the rift monster got got the drop on you. So it's going to go first. I wrote a 22. Yep. It gets like a surprise Attack is You guys were like watching the rumbling and watching the pillars reform. And there it popped out and just went for it. I knocked Brody in front of, So it's going to attack, and it only got a 10 0 should I need to figure out attacking? First? First?
Did Brody Roll Initiative
Kishan was attacking? You have got a tenant? Definitely, miss. Ok, Do you want Brody involved in the fight? Can she fight now?
What is she? She's so we brought the completely wrong persons this fight.
We'll know if it was just
like a sentence. So does she. Just fucking skills. Hey, the rift is still open. Call your frog.
She used to be a rich person. Like that is all you know about her.
Okay, I'm gonna say Brody, get out. She does. Okay. You call your frog. Oh, yeah? Can I call dirty? Sometimes open because it's open. Yeah. Wait, wait.
You guys don't know what her for her dark Looks like.
I pictured a gigantic It's dead. Radio
like guild assemble on their whole guilt comes into taxes. Riff monster. There's nothing we
could do that, Tess. Yeah, they're just kidding. You're not done yet way. Could you officers assemble and get everyone else like Sonya and, well, efforts already there, but like eyes thinking stuff. All right. Every don't get everyone. Get the officers that he goes. Waited for getting everyone in. Just the officers.

A 20 foot radius, fear of blackness and bitter cold envelopes. The area centered on the point within range of the noisy creates is a cacophony of soft whispers in slurping noises. Any creature that spends time in this area taste to G six of damage every turn

That's 40. So it takes 14 damage from that, and then it's turn starts in it. Oh, you have todo saving. Actually, no. There's no saving for over that. So you're gonna take whatever this world you That's two. The first reading. I have picked it up and look at it was like, Oh, shit, Hold on. So that's five and that too. So that's the scent. So you take seven damage and you see the, um you next turn, you get to see that it, like, almost freezes like hungry Radar's through cold. And it's also like arriving in confusion because of damage for the for the other one distant whispers and it dies. Yeah, are And Zegna here's a Gale Harold food cart and she collapses the hunger of radar And you guys are now fast rising into the air on top of this thing.

Yeah, I've never closed in. The monster came from it. You guys were like, rocketing into this guy. And around you, you see other things coming out of the ground, and we're actually it's more like the ground proceeding from the very thing you're going up. So the grounds falling away and was being revealed is almost an entire stick. And it's not like a city ever seen the damn rabbits again. And in front of you, there's a chair that has a phrase engraved on it, and it looks like a giant throne, and everything around you is what it looks like. The ruins of the
city. Okay, what's the thing on the chair? Say
you cannot go
in, sit on
chairs, We can't see it. Or is it not? Don't you?
So it's at the top of ah staircase that's falling apart. It's like one building away from you guys. But you could get to it based on how the ground receded. Yeah, there's a phrase in a language you've never seen in great down here since any reading. Then you
can, so it's not
okay. You said it from your seated position on this throne on top of the city. You can see that the rift that you guys came through starting with critical
thinking. Yeah. Run. I have undergone Look it

Girls get a good theme. That night, the new members of the syndicate make their way to their shelters. The bonfire fades to embers and you each start your nightly rituals. May Lara puts away the equipment she used to study the rift drops next turn rubs the dirt off the head. Year old Adriel refills her poisoner's kit, and Anya finds a more comfortable position on the counter of whatever bar she's currently at. Asthma. Lara picks up a magnifying glass. Next turn, sets a head on a shelf, and Adriel wipes the edge of her bottle, and Anya rubs her eyes. They see it the speck of purple and blue
in a familiar mesmerizing glow, staining the tips of your fingers, Theo.
