1620/StormSeason/Truth Week/Entire Week

Javin showed up, unexpectedly. The Bullfords are moved from Enemy to Neutral status by Caliope’s intervention. A Lunar colonist is hit by a raid, and a suitable sacrifice is gathered for the sanctification of a new temple at The Pairing Stones. Angry City Peacers will lay off the Golden Arrows, but those who haven’t declared allegiance to the City Peacers or the Imperials will still be the target of gangs. What will happen to Bladezz?

Closing Montage:
Ran out of time.
Could’ve run my leftover scenes here.

Missing scenes
- GM/In-group/Scheme: Should have had a Kolli the Portly scene
- GM/In-group/Intrigue: Perhaps at the end, Kolli talking to another “friend” of the Golden Arrows who will be important.

Results

  • the clan’s War resource remained unaffected, though still in crisis
  • Threats to Wealth overcome, a donation of Wealth was made.
  • Clan’s morale withstood attempts to break it.

Notes

  • Default Resistance 23/18 on next adventure.
  • We will pick up on 1620, Sacred Time, Luck Week, Freezeday. This is the first week of 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.”
  • 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.
