Immortality could be handy... Let's explore that process.

Vassarious will allow their new friend to do the wards, and is interested in doing them together so they can check each other's work.

And implicitly you won't either!

Spying on an ally is a compliment right?

The witch slaughters an animal, and then starts reading the splatter.

"They are not adequately protected... but they have no history, seemingly springing out of nowhere yesterday. Vassarious is somehow of the far east, like yourself, Halcyone is of the ocean. Both have strange shapes, unlike how they appear."

"They have many they could be enemies with, but none know of them. The man who has acted strongest against them is you."

Yi takes this knowledge, and then goes and talks to a man about Bel's security arrangements and schedule.

You need a coven of high-end witches to support that... most great cities have only one, and its in the service of the city government. The process takes an hour and usually requires an auspicious time of day: noon, dawn, sunset, and midnight are popular.



Its a single roll against the lower of HT or Will, with -2. If you fail the roll, I won't kill the character, but they will be very depowered for the rest of the mission.

Yi is happy to do this, which will help V do them independently later.

How does one keep the secret of their immortality if it's handled in such a public way?

--rolls are not too worrisome when you have a pocketful of Destiny on Fateworld

The people involved are well known... the ceremony is not, and is usually done in secret. Most people want others to know they're immortal, just not what the weakness is. This means the witches know what your immortality is... but they have little incentive to spread this knowledge around. Its worth pointing out this is precisely the way that you're attacking Bel.

Fair.

The two of you have a day to kill in the city. Yi asks for 8 gold coins to set you up with horses and their gear before you set out for the cave complex in the morning. I think Halcyone needs a stealth roll to get the hive down.



You set off in the morning on your animals. Make a riding roll and handle animal roll each. Yi wants to move fast... though compared to modern technology, this is still slow.

Well, stealth and climbing:

It doesn't matter, but it turns out my alternative default is just as good as my IQ default for animal Handling.

I know how to treat the animal, but I can't quite manage to stay on top.

Two rolls against Hunter, one fail and one succeeds.

What was the event that called for the riding roll?

Added notes:

Vassarious pays for the steed and takes a moment to put their heads together and spend a moment in acknowledgement of the creature before riding it.

They will try and make small talk on the journey:

"Do you have a prize picked out after this one?"

"Do you usually go for something specific, or do you sometimes search for low hanging fruit?"

"Do you have a family?"

LOL

I'll delete this post if it's too late!

Since we have a day, Does Halycone want to look into the immortality too? Can it be arranged that quickly?

Wanna just do it TGLS?

I shake my head at the thought. "No, I have no need for further fates attaching themselves to me. If I die here I die because my choices and skill, not because a witch I'd only be killed by a man who was of no woman born and I just happened to run into a soldier who was a C-Section."
