(We now know there was a posting error. So ShadowMask is NOT the sorcerer who drove our tribe off the land, killing half of our tribe in the process. So back to Anoras.)

(Anoras will check Thad. I'm assuming she'll find no evidence he was killed after Anoras treated him.

I should not have yelled, and should not have said what I said."

they keep their thoughts about this to themselves, but do not inquire further.

You rolled a 17 against a skill of 8. So yeah. Hopefully the Venasir have better tactical sense than Cassandra and don't hold it against her.


They talk to each other in Venasir about that.


Quote:
Cassandra flinches as she sees ShadowMask, ShadowMask is very not cool. Didn't Anoras say these were good Venasir? Anoras must have been confused.
They're still Venasir though!

Quote:
"Fireball, Wings and Stripes. I didn't see Stripes. I did see Fireball and Wings" she describes them, well, the concealing masked outfits they were wearing. "Fireball well, threw fireballs. Wings I didn't see do anything, but Anoras said he controlled a bird, and I was attacked by a bird. I don't know anything about Stripes that came from Anoras."
"Where is Anoras? She sounds very helpful. Is she the leader of your war band?"


Cassandra is offered a bowl of gruel, and it is suggested that she sleep in the great hall. The Haunden Traitor woman stays with her and also eats some gruel.

"They want to know if you will swear by your Gods that you will not attack the Venasir of this castle until you return to your village."

Fireball berates Anoras for such a mistake.

They will be staying here for the night, and set up a guard routine. Anoras is expected to continue caring for the wounded. There is a little talk of sending her to be with the other camp with their wounded.

I'm assuming the other camp is where our fellow Haunden are being held prisoner. If so, that's exactly what Anoras was hoping for.

(Anoras speaking): "There are more wounded? I agree; sending me to help sounds like a very good idea."

Busan: "No, we are thinking about sending the wounded somewhere safe during the attack."

(Anoras speaking to Busan) "Oh. All right."

Then, after a pause:

"Wait. Are any of the other wounded Haunden?

"The Haunden giant of course died before I could question him. Very unfortunately. I remember you said, 'Interrogating him is probably worth it.' Even Wings decided to follow your wise plan for me to question him. But I can't question a skeleton." (Anoras will scowl.)

(Anoras continuing to speak to Busan) "But maybe one of the other Haundens knows about the secret, whatever it is? Again, as Wings and you agreed, as I am both a healer and can speak Haunden, a patient might be more likely to talk to me as their healer than to anyone else. So perhaps I should be sent there so I can gather useful information, and then report back to you."

Busan: "We have injured prisoners at the other camp yes. Nothing serious or worthy of your concern though. And all the prisoners are civilians. They won't know anything. We have a couple of minor injuries we took in the haunden raid. Those people are with Stripes."

"And I see your point. The captured Haunden are all with Stripes, and are all civilians. So they likely won't know anything about military secrets. But maybe one of them might have overheard something? Or a warrior might have said something they shouldn't have said to their spouse? When Stripes arrives with the Haunden prisoners, maybe I could at least try to learn something from them that they might have heard?"

"Oh no, Anoras isn't a Warrior like me or Thad, she is a Healer. Uhm. I don't think anyone is in charge. She got caught by the enemies somehow with Thad. Well Thad got caught because he got fireballed and stabbed and hacked and everything. Anoras looked okay"



Cassandra looks dissapointed but eats the gruel "Isn't there like beer and parties here?"


"Well, I will be willing to swear by Bribeam, my Ancestor God of Archery and Singing and Beauty, not to attack or harm the Venasir of this Castle until I return to my village, just, let me go after we deal with these raiders. Since it would be really rude to keep me after I helped you out even though I would be an awesome slave."

Ok, so Anoras is try to influence them to go ahead and send away the wounded to the prisoners early. She's effectively low status in this situation. I suppose Fast Talk is the relevant skill.



The main difficulties they bring up are finding Stripe's camp and staying safe: they don't want to send any good fighters with them. Its suggested that they might use the bird to guide them and watch for enemies. ("These haunden were willing to attack us with just two warriors... they might have more that are similarly determined, and that archer is still out there")


Anoras is able to answer every question. (Fast talk roll of 8 vs skill of 15 with a -2 penalty for effective low status). The wounded will just get in the way, and they have to stick around and anyways, so it won't slow anything down. Wings doesn't want to do guide the bird more, but this is his raid, so he's convinced to make sure everything is perfect.

They set out: Anoras, and three warriors. Two use sword and shield and one uses a glaive. All three are badly injured. Anoras is told to follow the crow that's checking in on them periodically.



(Two are just barely positive HP, one shield bearer is negative HP but conscious and bandaged).

"That's unfortunate. So its just you? No wonder you came to us."

The translator/minder looks at Cassandra disappointedly "Is that what you think the Venasir do all day? That only happens a few times a year, on the feast days. And you're Haunden and you admitted to stealing a goat. Why would they give you any feasts?"

"Swear it then!"



OCC: wow. Just wow. I laughed.

"Yes, just me. Well it wasn't my first choice!"

"Ohh, the Venasir all totally . . . " she looks at the Venasir all around her

"Uhm. Uh. I'm sure they do lots of very Venasir things. Apparently sober. Though I like mead better than beer actually. I guess they don't have any cute princes either? Anoras implied they did . . . I'm still single. Anoras I think is single to if she gets rescued. Well okay, that is a point, so I guess that makes sense, but it was a really good raid! I am sure the other Venasir hurry up and attack so we can defeat them and go home. We did have singing and dancing and actual drinks."

"Very well, I Cassandra of Haunden do solemnly swear by my ancestor Bribeam, Great God of Archery, Music and Beauty, that I will not attack or harm the Venasir of this Castle unless first I set foot within my own village."
