Anoras begins binding wounds, and doing a pretty good job. The count of dead and missing comes in: 13 are dead, and 19 are missing. The missing are the young and old: those who cannot run quickly. she hears reports of the enemy carrying away their dead and wounded.



Cassandra runs off to find Rhiannon. Its a ways through the swamp, but she gets there in a few minutes. The old witch is pouring through her books, looking for something. Fenian is not there. She doesn't look up when she hears Cassandra: "go away! I'm busy! It can wait!" She seems emotionally distraut, which is unusual for her.



OCC: Old CPR training: you never ask the general bystanders to do something. You ask someone specific.

Anoras (thinking): I am so glad I could help the injured. But that won't bring back the dead. And I hope my father Mileno is not among the missing. But someone likely would have told me by now if he was. As soon as I'm done here, including consulting with Rhiannon, I'm going to have to help track our missing people and track our enemies.

But if I'm understanding, asking the general population to get Rhiannon, or find someone who can get Rhiannon, to me has a modern day equivalent. It's like, "Someone with a cell phone, please call 911!" (For anyone in a nation that doesn't use it, "9-1-1" is a general phone number to call for an emergency.)

She pauses for a moment. "Janden wasn't on the raid."

rolled vs. Hidden Lore (Scorcery), success by 8.

Anoras can tell this is a Venasir monster, created from some poor soul's body, after they were killed by the Venasir, probably to fuel some sacrifice requiring ritual. The creatures will continue to try to attack until the curse is removed or they are physically destroyed: She can remove the curse with the right herbs (10 minute search time for 2d6 doses) and incantations. A bone from the skeleton can be made into a charm to resist(but not totally block) the spells of the specific sorcerer who cast this spell, once the curse is lifted.

Her father is alive: Mileno made it inside the stockade. But at least three of her cousins and her uncle were taken.

You are correct.

Anoras (thinking): Thank the stars my father is alive and safe. But my cousins and my uncle, and so many others? The Venasir are not inherently bad people, so why did they turn to this evil? As soon as we can, we must find the missing! And I hope somebody's found Rhiannon. I hope she's not among the missing!

"I found this still squirming," he says. "Can you get anything from it?"....
Amoras (speaking): "Thank you, Thad, let me check."

(Anoras does some analysis using Hidden Lore (Scorcery). GM already rolled).

Anoras (speaking): "Good work, Thad. You stopped a Venasir monster, created from some poor soul's body. These type of creatures will continue to try to attack until the curse is removed or they are physically destroyed--but don't destroy this. If I get the right herbs....I could remove the curse and make a bone from the skeleton into a charm to resist the spells of the sorcerer who cast the spell!

"Maybe you could confine this, and other monster parts, in barrels or something to keep them there until I can get the herbs I need. Maybe get someone you trust to keep an eye on things while you do whatever you need to do. Should take me probably about 10 minutes or so to get the herbs."

Stories of the survivors about the scorcerers are abundant: the birds went crazy, one could stun just be looking at you for a second, one was flinging fire, and the last one could keep you fixed with his stare."

"The village was attacked... of course. Its not a coincidence. I will lead you to my daughter, and you will protect her while I save who I can in the village.


She leads you out through the swamp.

Anoras will gather herbs to deal with the curse and make a bone from the skeleton into a charm to resist the spells of the sorcerer who cast the spell. (I'm posting that because I'm not sure if the GM needs a roll on that or not. If a roll is required, the GM has my full permission to make the roll for me.)

OOC: Yep. Sometimes it's safar to make a raid than it is to stay home!
