Day 3

  • starts with finley/hao hiding in a tree after a long rest

    • "we ought to check behind every bush and tree to make sure we're safe" – hao
    • "we probably should've done that before we slept?" – finley
  • meical leaves a note to go for a jog

    • notes the basically unused room, notes front door is shut, blood outside, doesn't think it's weird
    • goes for his jog
    • runs into finley/hao

      • they tell him they've been attacked
  • go to citrine's

    • wooden frame was opened from inside via break in the glass, bedroom window
    • bedoom looks kind of messy; does look like someone is there; can't see anyone in the room
    • hardwood floor not looking too good from the flood the day before
    • doesn't seem like citrine was in here or anyone who knows this place really well has been taking stuff out of here or used the bed for sleeping or anything, looks more like someone went into the house and didn't find anyone or anything
  • go to citrine's work to look for her

    • hard to get in bc before we were with citrine
    • receptionist: old, almost decrepit tiefling man who doesn't seem to like his job; wearing a black jerkin and sitting at his desk looking grumpy; not very healthy; upon approach he barely lifts his eyes and asks, "yes?"

      • finley: asks if citrine's been in
      • him: yea (repeatedly)
    • find her there
    • she's translated the note

Written in Abyssal:

To all my friends,

soon it shall be the first day of Harfest and when that day comes, Rethalas will no longer stand united with Edgarville. They will "tremble before us" and the might of the "Sigil"! The "fat dwarf" will no longer stand in our way as we "bring glory" to the mightiest realm in all of Tamaril!

Join us, brothers and sisters, in the celebrations where the Blue crowns the Light.

  • note the place where the "blue crowns the light"
  • go to guard house/gaol for citrine reports a break in & talk to Yanthar

    • guard is blue; normal plate armour; no colour/emblems on plate; just the blue cloak sets them apart
    • gaol keeper is a cheery young halfling
    • yanthar hasn't been checked in as a prisoner or anything
    • hao headbutts the guard who's from fucanlong but is a defector and gets thrown in gaol herself

      • sees a vivid vision as part of her detention; forest, pan flutes; apathetic to externalisations
      • chanting "fucanlong guide me" over and over again
      • like the teletubby sun the head of fucanlong peeks out
      • fucanlong's voice: "you must kill two chickens"
      • you are traversing through the forest and fucanlong guides you to two chickens
      • Lifted from Hao's travel journal:
        "After being arrested for defending the honor of the great Fucanlong  I was taken away to a cell, the guards seemed used to this procedure so I can only assume that they must regularly bring people here, crime really is rife in this city. I wasn't inside the cell for very long before I assume I fell asleep, I awoke in a jungle the plants were all very vibrant green, I've never seen such deep green looking plants, even in the grand oasis. The air seemed hazy but not with fog, it was as if the air itself  were somehow viscous, I needed to find M,Phin and Kit they would need my help when the next garbage building explodes, I, however, had no idea where I was or how I got there so I started to pray for guidance from Fucanlong. I used my thumb to rub my bracelet and repeated the mantra that had got me through tough times before "Fucanlong guide me" I repeated this over and over for some time. 

        I was met with a glorious vision of the majestic head of Fucanlong herself emerging from the sun, pushing away the clouds without any effort. I, of course, felt such elation from this blessing I bowed down to Fucanlong without a moment's hesitation and continued my mantra. Fucanlong they gave me the holy mandate of killing chickens and lead me in the direction of the foul beasts. I made my way through the jungle following the guidance of the wise Fucanlong, eventually I made it to a clearing, in the clearing were two giant crimson chickens they were fighting over a black egg. I slew the giant chickens with relative ease, the edge of my shield making short work of them. After my deed was done I bowed before the radiant Fucanlong and repeated my prayer. Fucanlonng reached down from the sky and put the egg into my hands and disappeared. I became overcome with emotion, I no longer felt the warm of her presence and a sense of safety when the glorious Fucanlong left, I just felt hollow. I was left with an egg, an egg the
        splendant Fucanlong had left in my care, I vowed to do my duty and protect it with my life. I'm not sure how long I sat crouched on the floor clutching the egg  and weeping but at some point I must have fallen asleep again for the next thing I next I was coming to back in the jail cell being lead out to the others.The egg was nowhere to be seen, I had lost the egg the almighty Fucanlong had entrusted to me. I will find the egg."
  • asks halfling about peri/sigil

    • and for his name (Carl… Qarl)
    • gets advice from carl about fucanlong
    • makes the best dioramas
    • we actually don't have any info

      • we believe peri runs the sigil she's, well we believe it's a woman, looks like, or how old she is, what she looks like, we don't know, reports are strange, some mentions of peri have been going back as far as a hundred years; it could be an elf or something of course…
      • the sigil has, what we know, we think, has existed for about those hundred years as well; peri/sigil knowledge comes from about the same period, they, it's, we don't actually know all the stuff that they do, from what we know around town they did deal/they have connections to the trade company, what goes in/out of the town
      • we believe they meet somewhere in the underground, but not quite sure where, haven't been able to find anything; movement there isn't very easy to… all of the water… haven't had time to do a proper examination
      • finley: what have they done in the past?

        • carl: let's just say this isn't the first time they've killed the doge
  • tall kor approaches us as we leave the guard house

    • herd u lookin for peri & so's is we
    • fin: whose is yous
    • go to a tavern called The Bloom to talk
    • turalia
    • small base of operations near the harbour but not really anything compared to the trade company (unnamed rn)
    • not hugely resourceful so far bc they're a small trade company and the sigil is hedging out
    • go to a shack that isn't as bad as theron's, there's a human lording over yanthar
  • meanwhile meical goes to the other end of the bar and says there's a pub pop quiz, "Where would you meet me if I said to meet me where the Blue crowns the Light?" turn in to me by paper and i'll buy drinks for the top 3 answers

    • rando: do you give us paper
    • meical: how am i supposed to trust your resourcefulness if you can't even solve how to get yourself a paper? write in your blood if you have to
  • meet yanthar in the hovel

    • where does the blue crown the light
    • i dunno
    • hao: don't pull this shite with me
    • meical: u ever been dragged around tied to a chair by a horse
    • yanthar: omg ok… it's our hideout
    • finley: why's that
    • yanthar describes a sunlight in their hideout in the harbour district
    • sewer entrance

      • the one we use is the … in the harbour district … 
      • grate is green, copper, like the top of the lighthouse
    • he keeps trying to get us to release him and we keep declining repeatedly
    • meical asks how a centaur sized person would get into the sewers and yanthar keeps offerring to shrinkify him
