So many ideas in such a short time. The characters have heard of a town on the other side of the Greywynd Woods. A Sealer Nomad settlement on the shore of Jelno Bay. This will, hopefully, be a good lure to get them headed in that direction. Quite frankly I’d not expect them to do anything else. A place to get real food, real beds, and some company as well as news of the war – and possibly an update on what happened in Felk Bay after the invasion of the Rett barbarians.

The settlement has really sprung to life with lots of ideas creating lots of information and plots. Plots coming out of my eyeballs. But ultimately all those plots are a distraction from the main one.

The battle at the Barrow of Kentos will be a good decider on how the next segments play out. It has a lot more gravitas than might be perceived. And there’s some awesome twists I’m bursting at the seems to share, but can’t until the game-session reconvenes.

Instead I’ll just list a few rumours that can be encountered once they’re back in civilization:

  • Dwarven miners have discovered a new vein of silver on the edge of the glacial shelf (East)
  • Bizarre monsters have been encountered in the Queens March Heath (South, near the Scarred March)
  • The boss of the Sipran Guards is conspiring to overthrow the leader of the Southern Keep (Sipran Patriarach)
  • Lady Lande Tovranen’s new songbird is actually a polymorphed dragon
  • A sidhe court has been seen in the woods outside town (SW)
  • The chancellor of the watch is conspiring to overthrow the Sipran family patriarch
  • Rewyn the goldsmith was killed by goblins in the hills outside town
  • The old monastery on Highgate Hill is haunted by ghosts
  • Bizarre monsters have been encountered in the Scarred March (part of the near High Plains)
  • Cyne the merchant deals in magical weapons, but they’re all cursed
  • Lady Enora Sipran, is also the master of the Shadow Knives (assassins)

Exciting stuff for the GM and hopefully the players.

May have an illustration and map to be posted, soon.
