"Spreading out and sneaking is they totally want to attack me, I really should grab your marked wooden token thingy and skedaddle"

Cassandra goes to at least get her feet under her so she's crouching instead of sitting

(Anoras speaking): "All right. When you're ready, wave me away like you're letting me go free because I saved your life. Then I'll try to draw their attention.

"If that crow follows you so the mystic can spy on you, you can shoot the bird with your bow and arrow.

"Then go ahead and get the wooden sign that's upside down at (location). When someone from the castle sees you, show them the writing on the sign and point to yourself and say 'Cassandra' more than once. And you can talk in Haunden. I'm sure they'll get someone who speaks Haunden to talk to you. Just let them know we're here to help the Venasir castle Holidor from the evil renegade Venasir. I do know much of the renegade Venasir plans."

"Got it! Good luck Anoras say hi to Thad for me!" She gives Anoras what she hopes is an angry scowl and pushes her away, then goes to skedaddle

Busan steps into view, shield held forward and sword out, with a warrior behind him.



"The Archer heard us, didn't she?"


Where is Cassandra heading to?


Maybe soon we'll find out what happens to Thad!

NOTE: I wrote the below before I saw what ericthered posted (we apparently were writing our comments at the same time). So I'm going to write a new comment to fit what ericthered posted.

(The nice thing about Cassandra's reaction as seen by Wings or others watching is that, no matter what it is, it could fit. "I'm happy to be healed," "I'm happy but upset it was an enemy who healed me," "Did my enemy just insult me by healing me even though I demanded it?", "Is she really my enemy?", "I'm happy to be healed by someone who's not my enemy but they need to go now--and ouch that hurts!" etc.)

Anoras will let herself be pushed by Cassandra, and will stumble a bit (which likely would be a real stumble--Cassandra is strong). Anoras will look around like she's looking for a way to run off. Then she'll look back at Cassandra (Wings might think Anoras could be worried about being shot in the back; or someone else might think Anoras wants to make sure Cassandra is moving OK). Then Anoras will start to go in one direction (not towards Cassandra), stop and look, then go in another.

Then Anoras will stop and freeze in place and stare (at whatever she finds interesting--that's not in the direction of Cassandra.) Could be an herb, an animal, tracks, whatever she happens to see.

(Anoras speaking) "Oh, Busan, you're here! Thank (name of appropriate Venasir god)."

Anoras will touch Busan in a way that could be considered just slightly inappropriate for a woman to touch an armed man she's not involved with. American equivalent might be putting her hand on his shoulder--then she'll release, pull away, put her head down looking at her feet, inhale deeply, then look back at whatever she was looking at.

"I was gathering some herbs for healing, then that...archer. You have to understand. I'm a healer. It's what I do. Especially if I don't want to die." (This is all truth, and fits the events of her day.)

(Looking at Busan) "How are my patients, Busan?"

Cassandra gets her hands on the token (IQ roll by Anoras determines she didn't put it in a direction Busan would approach from). She heads off towards Holidor Castle.

Busan: "The wounded are fine. We hoped we could surprise that archer. Wings said she was lying on the ground. You should have cut her throat. She must have heard us."

Groundwork for future influence on Busan noted. Or whatever it is you're up to.

Busan has one other soldier and all three archers with him. They escort Anoras back.

Wings: "What did you say to that archer! I told you to go out and gather herbs, not heal the enemy! You went on purpose didn't you, you disobedient ingrate!"

Wings: "The archer is moving towards the castle. that's bad."

"But as for the archer...cut her throat with what, Busan? Healing herbs? She pointed her bow and arrow in my direction and demanded I heal her! And when I did it, she held a sword on me. And you said Mystic Wings saw her, somehow. So I'm sure Wings knows she did that. You can check with Mystic Wings."

Busan said you were watching somehow, so you could see I was gathering herbs when she pointed weapons at me. What was I supposed to do, let her kill me? I couldn't heal our people if I was dead!"
