Results

  • Clan got both interested parties to back off a while on demands for religious contribution
    [ ] no change to Wealth
  • +3 to Peace (for showing all sides that the Golden Arrows are reasonable and for reaching out to Praxians)

Notes

  • Default Resistance 22/18 on next adventure. [previous resistance was not updated, so don’t be unfair to players]
  • We will pick up on 1620, Truth Week, Freezeday. This is the last week before Sacred Time
    “In the two weeks of a Year (the fourteen days just before the spring equinox), the barrier between the Mundane World and Otherworlds is weakened. Magical rituals are done during this time in each communities for this status. "
  • next session will be “Luck Week”
  • the following session will be “Fate Week”
    at the end of that, we will look at the state of the clan and plan for arc #2
