With sky-high Hidden Lore (Sorcery), the roll is sucessful.



Anoras has been plainly told that wings specifically can see Cassandra, as opposed to a scout, and wings is clearly not peering out of the trees, and is instead concentrating on a spell. There are magical effects that allow this, either scrying at a distance, or viewing through the eyes of an animal.

Thanks.

So does Anoras know if Wings could hear Cassandra and/or Anoras?

She doesn't know if Wings can hear Cassandra or not.

Anoras knows that Fireball knows the Haunden language, but suspects Wings does not.

So, within earshot of Wings but not Fireball, she'll speak in Haunden while very near but walking away from Wings. But she'll use his "name" in Venasir.

(Anoras speaking to herself in rough Haunden while walking away): "I hope Wings that he knows what he does."

Critical Success!


Wings: "Don't speak Haunden around me unless you have to. Hurry up and find those plants. We don't have all day."

Anoras made a critical success--but my brain didn't! But I think I got it--Anoras learned Wings doesn't speak Haunden. If I'm thinking wrong, GM please let me know!

(Anoras speaking in Venasir): "Yes, Mystic, I will start looking immediately."

She'll of course not only look for the plants, but for Cassandra (she had made her Tracking roll. Now she'll make plans for how to approach Cassandra knowing Wings may be watching).

She finds Cassandra. who is watching out of the trees across the meadow at the approximate location of the enemy. She's about 10 yards way, behind fairly heavy tree cover. She has not noticed Anoras yet.

Sorry this is so long....

Anoras will gather herbs both for healing and for making charms like she did for Thad. If necessary, she can also claim those are good for healing. Based on Anoras being the one giving medical aid and on conversations, it looks like none of the Venasir in the group know First Aid and Gardening and Naturalist like Anoras does.

And note that Anoras wasn't asked and didn't tell any of the Venasir her name. (Had they asked, her claimed name might have been....)

Anoras does not want to do anything physically that could give away, to the possibly watching Wings, that Cassandra and Anoras are friends. But telling Cassandra what's happening is a goal. That includes Thad's condition, that Cassandra's being watched, and the planned meet up in the sacrifice site with Stripes who has the captives. And there's the mark on Anoras' hand.

I'm thinking of different possibilities, some probably more likely to work than others. In no particular order, these are:

Five Possibilities

1) Trying to set things up so Wings could get killed by Cassandra. That would eliminate a sorcerer and would mean Wings' mark in Anoras wouldn't mean much.

2) Suggesting Cassandra stay hidden, but follow our group with the future plan of helping free the captives when we find the meeting place.

3) Cassandra going to get help from other Haunden--if the meeting place is far enough away to give enough time for that. There might be a shorter route from Haunden to there than from where we're at now.

4) Bringing Cassandra to the Venasir as a helpful descendant of Bribeam, deity over archery and also dance. (These skills fit both Apollo, the Bribeam equivalent, and also fit Cassandra who believes this is true. Apollo is also over healing, which fits Anoras.)

5) Suggesting Cassandra learn a simple Venasir phrase and also carry a small piece of wood on which Anoras carves a message in Venasir with an appropriate mark. Essentially, Cassandra would be warning the castle of the renegade Venasir group's attack (and letting them know Anoras and Thad can help). Anoras has the Quirk, "Longs for the Old Days (pre-Venasir attack)." Warning the castle might both save us and be a way of starting diplomatic relations with the Venasir.

Some of these may be stupid ideas--Anoras would likely know, I wouldn't.

OOC


I don't know if GM ericthered will go for this or not. But...

I'm currently in the position where what I have Anoras do could either help or hurt the rest of our party--maybe hurt them to the death. So if if it's OK with the GM, maybe the other players could give input.

If that's not OK--or if the GM thinks rolling is the best option--the GM can do an appropriate roll for me on what's a good plan.

1 - Cassandra would love to kill Wings if there is a way to do it

2 - Cassandra is bad at stealth and tracking, this seems unlikely to work

3 - Cassandra would get lost before she finds any Haunden

4 - Cassandra has Archery and Dancing! I'm not sure they would actually like Cassandra though as she has been shooting at them

5 - this seems promising! I believe we can actually see the castle now so navigation not as required?

you can't actually see the castle, but there is a road to it nearby, and most the roads lead there now, and you are close to being able to see it.
