Beach of Maos
W-Beach of Maos Other exits:Moonsea
This sandy beach is littered with small seashells and algae. Far to the north,
you can see a tall black building and several two- and three-storey dwellings
in a valley edged by hills. Looking to the south, you see the Moonsea and
the walls of Hillsfar far away. There is a small wooden sign here, half-buried
in the sand.

hair goes down to his chest, black as the night. His eyes have a shimmering
golden hue, with specks of green going from the pupil to the outer rim. He is
tall, topping 5''4', his hands are strong, callous. He moves with a gracious
stride, as if ready to dance or spar at any time.

auburn colour, and her eyes are hazel.

This young woman is quite small, standing under five feet even when on the
tips of her toes. She is very slim, with no extra fat to be noticed anywhere
on her person. Where visible, her lightly tanned, smooth skin is pulled
tightly over lean muscles giving evidence to an active lifestyle. Striking,
dark indigo blue eyes look out from under slender eyebrows and full lashes.
The rest of her face is unmarked and characterized by a small nose and full
lips. When revealed, her ears are a slightly longer than most humans, with a
slight point at the end. Her hair is a dark, warm brown that falls to
mid-back. It is feathered away from her face, and long bangs swoop down to

Short and slender, this male moon elf has black hair and blue eyes with the
telltale golden flecks in the iris. His pale skin is clear of blemish, and
appears to be tautly stretched over delicate bones. His face is a study in
angles, with an aquiline nose and a square jaw. His thick mane of hair is
pulled back over his ears, which are wide and short, and the tips lay flat
against his narrow skull. His almond shape eyes are recessed slightly,
allowing his curved eyebrows to over shadow them. His hands seem to be out of
proportion to his slight build, being large, with long slender fingers.

You nod at him.
You are nearly blinded by An angular, sylphlike female tiefling's dazzling smile.
Desceptively slim and lithe, her form is covered in
taught black skin similar to that of a cambion. Obsidian
tresses sit upon her shoulders in curls as tight as death
often kept at bay by her elflike ears. Eyes as black as
the night, from edge to edge, sit in her slender face
above a barely noticeable nose. Her jawline is very
chiseled, going well with her high almost spiny cheek
bones, while her mouth has two full rows of razor sharp
teeth. She seems to have lead a very rough life, a scar
on her left thigh tells of someone putting a chain belt
around it, and pulling until it cut deep into her flesh.
The faint sent of smoke seems to follow her movements,
and her body seems rather hot to touch.

She stands at nearly six feet, four inches tall, and is a
wraithlike hundred and twenty pounds.

This absolute beast of a woman reaches a full standing height of roughly six
and a half feet. Her height is complemented by her girth--she is built like a
grizzly bear, with a muscular, tree-trunk like torso and thickly muscled
arms. Her skin holds a faintly grey-green cast to it, and is quite light. Her
coarse, black hair is done in a series of thick dreadlocks, pulled away from
her face into a messy ponytail, and the sides are shaved, giving her a
distinct mohawk. Her eyes are small and a murky, brownish-red sort of colour,
and her nose is somewhat crooked, as though it's been broken in the past. Two
small tusks jut out from under her bottom lip.

Standing at an even six feet, this man has chin length black hair and a short
cut, unkempt beard.

His bushy eyebrows seem to be perpetually furrowed over his brown eyes, with
the exception of a small scar cutting a small patch of bare skin over his
left eye, hooking down onto his cheek.

This room is very similar to the one downstairs. Lots of stones are lying
everywhere in the dust. The wooden floor is rotten at some places, where the
holes in the roof let the rain enter. You don't feel safe walking here. There

the room, you can see the ricketty stairwell leading down to the ground floor.

THE LOUD GONG OF DEATH SOUNDS!
The Host yells 'Two left!'
Your pulse returns to normal.
Alisser embeds his sword up to the guard in Marvolaeth's body, leaving it there as the fallen man sags. He holds the body up against his, slowly lowering it to the ground, hand keeping firm grip on his blade, 'You brought this on yourself.'.
PAUSE
Alisser stands up slowly, and turns his blade as he rips it out of the body. He looks down to the blood left on it for just a moment before turning away from the corpse entirely, setting his way down the stairs-And stopping when there's a pause.
The Host gives you a glass flask of cure serious, cure serious, cure serious.
Someone arrives from a puff of smoke.

This absolute beast of a woman reaches a full standing height of roughly six
and a half feet. Her height is complemented by her girth--she is built like a
grizzly bear, with a muscular, tree-trunk like torso and thickly muscled
arms. Her skin holds a faintly grey-green cast to it, and is quite light. Her
coarse, black hair is done in a series of thick dreadlocks, pulled away from
her face into a messy ponytail, and the sides are shaved, giving her a
distinct mohawk. Her eyes are small and a murky, brownish-red sort of colour,
and her nose is somewhat crooked, as though it's been broken in the past. Two
small tusks jut out from under her bottom lip.

That was like that when I got here.

Re: The Starvation Festivities P. II

Post by Althasizor » Mon Apr 29, 2019 1:59 am

For fun, I'll add some snippets leading up to the Starvation Festivities (I wish I was smarter about logging more things, all from Alisser's POV ofc):
A letter home wrote: Mom,

It's been a while. I don't know, I've just been busy. Sorry. How are you and
dad? And Sil, did he like the stone? Did I mention the light is from captured
sunlight in it? It was hard for me to believe, too. But it's true. I always
knew magic was impressive, but now that I'm in a city like Waterdeep, I've
really gotten a sense for just how awesome it is.

I've been doing a lot out here! I'm finally getting used to the big city.
I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not yet. But I've maede a lot of
friends here. A lot of them are girls, but don't go thinking it's anything
like that. People in the city are a lot nicer than I thought they would be,
and there's been shortage of adventure. Or training. I've been working
hard. I hope you're proud. The training helps. It doesn't really make me feel
any better, but it helps me focus.

Oh, speaking of all the things I've been doing, I've earned a lot of titles
since I've been out here. Recently I added Demonslayer to that list. I know
it's hard to believe, so that's why I included a little something in here as
proof. It's the claw of something called a Balor! It was a really strong
demon. I beat a lot of weaker demons too, but that one was definitely the
toughest. We had to do a whole ritual just to weak nti. It's really sharp
though, so put it up somewhere Sil can't play with it.

I couldn't have done that on my own though. Those friends I told you about,
I've been making a lot of memories with them. I know that's selfish, but I
can't help it. Does that make me a bad person? I had to borrow a sword from
someone, too. It turns out it's really hard to cut a demon with steel, you
need to use cold iron to make a difference. You'll never guess who lent it to
me - Sir Stigr! I think I told you about him, he's the Weaveguardian of
Mystra. He leads their whole church here, I can't believe someone like that
would lend me their sword.

I've even been helpful to the Waukeenar here, I think. I've been trying to
be. Doing that helps me feel closer to you all back home. I guess. Recently
we held Spryndalstar, what was it like there? Did everything go okay? I hope
so. It's a lot different here in the city, they made a two-day event out of
it. One day they held it in the House of Wonder(That's Mystra's temple), and
the next in the market center. It was really educational, and a lot of fun.

Renea is giving me a chance to host an event of my own. The Day's coming up
fast, so I'm trying to hurry to do this one. I have an idea all planed out
already, so I'll try to write to you afterwards to tell you what it was and how
it turned out. It's a lot of trust she's putting in me.

I haven't told anyone yet. They won't understand. He's nowhere near me, but
even now I swear I can hear his heart beating and it's all that I want to
stop it. I wish I said something before I left, but I knew you wouldn't
understand either. I'm sorry. I don't know if you'll reply, but I hope at
least this makes it to you. I'll try to write at least one more time.


I love you,
- Alisser
Telling the boss wrote: (Translucent) Renea is hovering here.
Renea sits and relaxes.
You descend and land.
Alisser lowers to the ground, and folds his legs as he sits down on the ground, 'Flying's easier to take to than I thought it would be.'.
You sit down and relax.
Renea sits down by the water's edge and nods in agreement with you, 'Well, I've always wanted to fly, since I was little, speaking personally.'.
Alisser nods as well, setting his helm aside and tugging his gauntlets off as well, as he reaches forward to trail his fingers in the water, 'The same for me, although I always imagined it would come on the back of a dragon. I had the most fanciful ideas.'.
Renea grins, 'Well, I can't say that I ever wanted to ride a dragon, to be sure, but I suppose we all have our own ambitions.'.
Alisser chuckles lightly as he leans back then, with one hand planted behind him, 'Yes, we do. That brushes on what I wanted to talk about, in fact.'.
Renea smiles at you, 'Well, if you've given some more thought into your position within the fellowship of Waukeen, I'm interested in hearing what you've come up with.'.
Alisser smiles at Renea with a shake of his head, 'Ah, not related to faith. I suppose you could say, too.. I wanted to speak more as friends, with full respect to your station?'.
Renea clears her throat politely. She sits up, folding her legs underneath herself as she gives you her attention, 'Well, certainly, go ahead.'.
Alisser takes in a deep breath, and releases it slowly as his chin drops, 'Well, for starters, I wanted to apologise again. Perhaps my memory's made it worse, but I worry the sourness of my mood may have been too noticeable the other night.'.
Renea smiles ands shakes her head lightly, 'I think you needn't worry overly much. I certainly noticed, but I opted not to ask anything out of courtesy.'.
Alisser rolls his tongue in his mouth with a thoughtful expression before giving with a tip of his head, 'And it's nothing you need concern yourself with of course, I suppose I just wanted to.. Get it off my chest.'.
Renea nods at you.
Alisser glances to Renea with a crooked smile, 'I appreciate that.'.
It's noon.
Alisser's brow furrows as he tells Renea, 'The friend I mentioned having seen, we... Far from parted on good terms. Crossing paths again brought a lot to the front I've been trying to keep down.'.
Renea taps her fingers together lightly, 'I see.. Were you able to mend any bridges between yourself and your old friend?'.
Alisser shakes his head a little, 'Those bridges are long since burned. It... Hm. When I say old friend, I suppose I mean friend of old.'.
Renea hmms, then nods towards you, 'I see.. That's a shame.'.
Alisser rolls his hand in a lazy way, 'Former.'.
Alisser nods a little, 'It is.. This is, forgive me, very hard. I didn't suspect it might be, but I've never talked about this.'.
Your determination begins to wane.
Renea smiles at you, and adjusts one of the beads on her staffacus, 'Well, you don't have to talk about anything you don't want to, naturally. I'm certainly willing to listen, however.'.
Alisser shifts, and stretches his legs out in front of him, just at the edge of the water. He looks to Renea, taking on a smile as he asks, 'Perhaps this is too forward a question Holycoin, but, have you ever been in love? Or... Thought you might've been?'.
Renea's back stiffens slightly, and she sits up, 'Well.. You know I prefer not to lie. Actually, I abhor lies. Let's say, I think yes, and leave it there. Did you have feelings for your old friend, in the past?'.
Alisser barks out a short laugh, covering his mouth with a shake of his head, 'Forgiveness, Holycoin. I mean not to pry. And.. Not that one.. No. Actually.. There was three of us.' he lowers his hand slowly as his gaze lifts to the sky, 'In Nesme, there were two other kids the same age as I. Once we got on, we were quite inseperable.'.
Renea peers at you.
Alisser lifts his eyebrows, 'What?'.
Renea coughs quietly, 'Nevermind. Anyhow, do go on.'.
Alisser tilts his head and smiles as he tells Renea, 'As you say.. We got into quite a lot of mischief. Quite a lot of adventure, which was just a fancy word we used for mischief. Which is a dangerous thing in Nesme, when you have trolls at the front doors, but try telling a bunch of kids that.'.
Renea hmms thoughtfully, 'Certainly trolls are deadly enough to trained adventurers, let alone children.'.
You are a mite peckish.
Alisser nods in agreement with Renea, 'Well, that was certainly the fear our parents had. We were never stupid enough to leave the city proper, not that it ever stopped anyone of worrying we had been.'.
You feel less freedom of movement.
Renea nods at you.
Renea says 'It's certainly very different from how Garnet and I grew up, but I've heard that some children are like that.'
Alisser shakes his head, 'We never took it too far. Sneak out, explore the city, carve another notch for a successful venture had.'.
Alisser trails off with a quiet hmm, then smiles at Renea, 'I'd be very much interested to learn how you and Garnet grew up. I've realised I have no idea.'.
Renea gestures lightly, 'Well, our father mostly left us alone. We had enough money to live comfortably, however, and teachers, though we didn't have a maid so we had to take care of that.' She hmms, 'The other children, and many of the people in Selgaunt thought we were cursed, so we stayed in the house most of the time.'.
You hear the sound of footsteps from the west.
slender mithral chains with hanging jade coins glows briefly as Renea activates it.
slender mithral chains with hanging jade coins glows briefly as Renea activates it.
Alisser shakes his head slowly as he listens, 'That's.. Horrible. I mean not to speak ill of your father, but could he do nothing to dispel such terrible rumours?'.
The clouds disappear.
Renea shakes her head, 'No, he couldn't. It ruined his business. Eventually, he just left one day and never returned. That's around when Garnet convinced me that we should leave Selgaunt and seek our fortune elsewhere.'.
Renea says 'So we sold everything we had to settle our father's debts and left Sembia.'
slender mithral chains with hanging jade coins glows briefly as Renea activates it.
Alisser presses his lips together, and nods to Renea, 'Have you ever.. Sought him?'.
Renea shakes her head in response to you.
Renea says 'I'm not really interested.'
Renea taps her earrings lightly, 'That's Isabelle just now.'.
Alisser nods again, 'Of course. I'm sorry, not an experience I would wish on any. Still, you're here now and have done so much with your natural abilities.'.
Renea smiles, 'Well, even now I can't look back on those days with too much disdain. As dismal as it sometimes was, I enjoyed myself at times as well, losing myself in stories. I used to make costumes of- Anyways, let's not go into that.'.
Renea clears her throat politely, 'So, what was it you wanted to ask me about? Is it alright if I invite Isabelle to join us?'.
Alisser nods absently to Renea, then clears his throat, 'I would never object to Lady Isabelle's presence.' he falls quiet though, looking to the pond.
Renea smiles at you.
Alisser's brow furrows as he speaks up, 'Well. Times change, people change. As we got older, things.. Changed. The way we felt a bout eachother.. Changed.'.
Renea gazes thoughtfully at you and says 'Hmmm.'
Renea says to you 'I see.. Well, things generally get more complicated when you get older.'
Alisser's gaze falls to one of his hands, 'I suppose.. With little enough detail, something happened. This old friend of mine, they did.. A terrible thing, and they the killed.. The third of our group.'.
Renea blinks, 'I see.. I'm going to be honest, that's not what I expected to hear. Why did they do it?'.
Alisser lifts his hand up to pinch the bridge of his nose for a moment, before nodding, 'I was trying to lead up to it, but.. Truly, it's easier to say bluntly than dwell on the detail.'.
Renea tilts her head ever so slightly as she listens to you.
Alisser lowers his hand, glancing aside to Renea and then away again, 'Rage, I think. I... Don't know. He knew.. As well or better than I did, how I felt about her.'.
Renea purses her lips into a thin frown, 'There was a time, not too long ago, when I had a very dismal view of love. Admittedly, I still think most of it is quite dangerous, with a few sparkling diamonds lost in the middle. To think it could drive one friend to kill another..'.
Alisser lifts a shoulder lightly, remaining mostly still as his eyes dart through the gardens, '.. How I thought I did, at least. In all honesty, I wasn't even sure. I certainly didn't act like I was.'.
Renea nods at you.
Alisser shifts again, raising one knee up and resting his forearm against it as he listens to Renea. He gives a nod, 'I suppose it could. I wasn't even sure what happened. I only got there by the... End.She was still warm, but gone.' he presses the heel of a palm over an eye, rubbing a moment before shaking his head, '.. I would have made a terrible bard.'.
Alisser's mouth works for a moment, before he closes his eyes and gives a small shake of his head again, speaking again when he opens them, 'It's why I left. I should have stayed and joined the Riders, but I just.. I couldn't.'.
Renea regards you with a faint arch of her brows as she listens to his story, 'It's a terrible thing, for one friend to kill another. Are you going to bring your old friend to justice?'.
Alisser offers a small nod in response, 'How can't I? What sort of monster kills an innocent girl they've known their whole life..?' his fingers curl into a fist, bringing blades of grass with them, 'He deprived the world of her. There's only one Judge fit to handle him.'.
Renea nods lightly towards you.
The sun slowly starts to set in the west.
Alisser takes a slow breath in, and releases it, 'I sound bloodthirsty. But I swear, I wish I didn't have to. My strongest wish is peace for the three of us, but no matter how many prayers are sent, whatever Lady manages time will not budge for a single boy.'.
Renea nods lightly towards you, 'Certainly there's nothing bloodthirsty about the administration of justice. One does what is necessary, and neither more nor less.'.
Alisser gives a small nod of agreement, then a stronger one as he returns his gaze to Renea, 'Just so.It's a matter of honour to her as much as it is love, and above all the justice he escaped.'.
Renea says 'Certainly, and one mustn't forget those he'll hurt if left to wander about on his own.'
Alisser gives another firm nod, 'He's mine to handle. And I don't want anyone else getting hurt for the feud of us two. Even thinking of the blood on his hands makes me ill.'.
The night has begun.
Renea nods slowly, 'Well, I'm sure you'll be able to sort this person out. Naturally, the rest of us, your friends, will be willing to help should you require it, however.'.
You hear the marching of the city watch patrolling the streets.
Alisser's expression falters for a moment, and he lowers his head to Renea, '.. You're the only person I've told, in fact. Could you.. Do me a favour, and keep this between the two of us? I don't want what time's left darkened with this.'.
Renea hmms thoughtfully at you, 'I don't mind, of course, but what do you mean by 'what time's left'?'.
Your feet float slowly to the surface.
Alisser shifts where he sits, straightening up a little, watching Renea's reaction a moment before he says with a slowness, 'Whatever shred of honour remained in him, compelled to him a challenge. And the day's fast approaching, a little over a tenday now.'.
Renea frowns faintly at you, 'I see. So you've already set a time to battle him. Do you expect he'll lay a trap for you?'.
Alisser gives a short nod, 'I suspect he might try, if he can reach to whatever other sorry soul involves themselves.'.
Alisser's eyes dart toward the pond, 'You've heard of these... Starvation Festivities.'.
Renea covers her lips with her hands and gasps, 'Not those horrid games. I'd heard about them in the past, well before I came to Waterdeep, but I thought they had moved on.'.
You feel your immunity to poison ebb slowly away...
Alisser nods to Renea, quietly returning, 'I heard your opinion on them once before, when I was fresh to the city. I don't disagree with you.'.
Renea shakes her head lightly, 'I take it your old friend is entering the games, but if you were able to find him before them, then..'.
Alisser shakes his head, crossing his legs again and resting his hands in his lap, fidgeting with his fingernails, 'It's too late for that. They've had my name for months, now.'.
Renea frowns, 'You mean, you've been entered into those games for months? But can't you pull out? After all, you have a lot to live for.'.
Alisser lowers his gaze to his lap, 'Maybe I could, but.. I just.. Can't. There can be no more final a a ground to settle what's between him and I. The prizes, their competition..' his gaze narrows, 'I care nothing but that he's there.'.
Alisser's expression slowly softens, his gaze remaining low as his shoulders sag a little, '.. You're right that I could live. I could have a successful life, do well by myself and the Church. But I wouldn't be doing right by her.'.
Renea fidgets with one of the beads on her abacus as she looks over to you, 'And yet, I know that you're not going to win the festivities. You won't kill anyone but your former friend, will you? Once he's down, you'll simply allow yourself to be defeated. Am I wrong?'.
The sky is getting cloudy.
Alisser remains quiet a time, and replies indirectly when he does, 'You understand why I can't tell anyone. To think I had their time only out of pity.'.
Renea hmms at you, 'I'm sure they'd try to talk you out of it, which is a sensible position to take.'.
Alisser nods to Renea, 'Probably that, too. ' he lifts his attention back to Renea with a small, crooked smile, 'Or revile me, for the selfishness of making a friend of myself knowing what might happen.'.
It starts to snow.
Renea holds a hand up and catches a few flakes of falling snow on it, 'Well.. I don't think many people would revile you for that, but.. I hope you'll reconsider. There are other ways to hold this man to task for his crimes. As you said, there is but one judge fit to handle him.'.
Reconnecting.
Alisser nods faintly to Renea, 'The Judge of the Dead is who he must fear.' he maintains his smile, though it's a sad one, as he bows his head to Renea, 'I hope -you- do not revile me. All the way 'til now, I debated if I shouldn't tell you. But, now a tenday out, I'd struggle to put it off any longer.'.
Renea dips her head lightly towards you, 'I hope you reconsider, is all I can really say. Otherwise, I'll certainly light a candle to guide your way to Brightwater.'.
Alisser stretches his arms out in front of him, holding his hands together, '.. And I've a request. Beyond.. Asking that you not tell anyone. That girl, Emilia.. May I work with her, until..?'.
Renea tilts her head lightly, 'Emilia.. I'm not sure I understand the question. Rather, I'm not sure why you would feel the need to ask my permission.'.
Alisser bows his head again to Renea, 'Your kindness is without bound, Holycoin. I can hardly say that enough. Though I train tirelessly to take a life, I hope despite myself to be blessed with entry.'.
Alisser adds, 'If it comes to that.'.
Alisser clears his throat, 'Well. You assigned me as her Senior. I would understand if, in light of a pending inability to.. Fulfill my duties, you'd see her placed with another eager senior.'.
Renea hmms thoughtfully at you, 'I'll certainly keep you in my prayers.'.
The full moon sets.
Alisser takes a steadying breath and gives a firm nod as he sits straighter, patting both fists on his chestplate. He smiles, saying to Renea, 'I would be grateful if we could pretend that we don't know what we do. I want days full of natural memories. I'll make sure you, or Dame Elisabeth have the Purchase's earnings with plenty of time.'.
Renea taps her lips thoughtfully as she looks over at you, 'That certainly explains the Purchase, now that you mention it.. You must have known you'd have no need of coin going forwards.' She frowns, just for a moment, 'Feels a bit ghoulish.. But we'll try to put what you obtained to the best possible use.'.
Alisser's smile widens a little as he nods to Renea, 'I suppose it is a little macabre. I wanted a chance to be there for the Church's next gathering, if only in spirit. And I truly cherished the chance to host an event all my own just once. I'm glad it was a success.'.
Renea smiles weakly at you, 'You've certainly been a valuable asset to the faith, and a friend.'.
Alisser's face screws up a little before he looks away, wiping his fingers against his eyes, 'Gods..'.
Alisser reaches over to Renea, patting a hand on Renea's shoulder, 'You've been only the best. A friend I can always turn to since I arrived in the city, and a Holycoin any could be proud for.'.
Renea dips her head lightly towards you, 'You're quite kind to say so. I've struggled somewhat with my position, but you're most assuredly my finest hopeful and initiate. Only initiate, actually.' She nods, 'Think about reconsidering, is all I can say.'.
The storm strengthens to a blizzard.
Alisser smiles at Renea, 'It means a lot that you'd ask me to. Part of me really wishes I could. I'll.. Think on it.'.
Renea smiles at you, 'That's all I can really ask.'.
Alisser stretches out his arms behind him, 'I know that was a lot heavier than what you were expecting the conversation to be. I-..' he glances around, 'It's now I realise, Lady Isabelle never came, did she?'.
Renea shakes her head, 'Looks like she went to sleep.'.
The day has begun.
Alisser nods a little, admitting, 'It isn't a bad idea.' he moves to get to his feet, brushing himself down, 'But more than that, -food-. Are you hungry, Holycoin?'.
Renea rises to her feet, stretching her arms up over her head, 'Ah, I can't say I'm overly hungry, and truth be told I'm more inclined to sleep than to eat, at the moment.'.
You gather yourself and stand up.
The sun rises in the east.
Alisser smiles at Renea, 'Well, I'll be for bed too after getting something. Thank you, Renea. I feel better, having someone to talk to.'.
Renea missed everything but the last four words of that smote.
Alisser smiles at Renea, 'Well, I'll be for bed too after getting something. Thank you, Renea. I feel better, having someone to talk to.'.
Renea smiles faintly at you, 'I'll try my best to honour your wishes and not treat you differently in the days going forwards. Though, you know I dislike lying, if Elisabeth or Isabelle asks me directly.. Nevertheless, I won't bring the subject up.'.
Alisser bows his head to Renea, 'I would never ask untruths from you. Feel free, if you're asked. I'll.. Well. I imagine beforehand I'll have goodbyes of my own, just.. Not so soon.'.
Renea nods at you.
Renea says to you 'Well, everything in its proper time.'
Alisser takes a couple steps back and bows more courteously from the waist to Renea, 'Too true. Then, I'll see you later? Good night, Renea.'.
Renea dips her head lightly towards you, 'Gold bless, Alisser. Waukeen watch over you.'.
A Leafy Oak Clearing
Another letter home wrote: Mom,

I promised I would write again after the Purchase event to tell you how it
went. It's been maybe a tenday or more since then, I don't really remember.
It kind of got away from me. Sorry!

The event went very well though. It was far more successful than I ever
expected it would be. It was basically a day for all of the fellow
adventurers to come and sell off the things they didn't need, couldn't use,
outgrew and such. Things people just toss in the bottom of their bags and
have trouble selling, you know? I thought that would be good for the
adventurer's economy, a bunch of people got spendable coin put in their hands
to go and buy the things they -actually- need, while getting rid of things
they never would have been able to sell normally. I was sure to price
everything very generously!

Like I said, it was a success, which I'm proud of. I'm still happy that the
Holycoin let me host an event on my own, and it was a little hard but worth
it.

I hope everything's fine over there? Has Sil started school yet? I'm sure
he's gone through a growth spurt or two since I last saw him. I've put some
things in the box I thought he might like, just some small things I've found
along the way.

Speaking of things along the way: Dragonslayer! I'm a Dragonslayer, now. I
fought this really big red dragon out on an island called 'Holyhead', I think
it was. It was so much bigger than I thought it would be. They really don't
stop growing. I don't have any proof this time, so you'll just have to
believe me - I was telling the truth about the Balor, wasn't I? I also fought
and defeated some -ghost- dragons. I guess dragons can leave spirits behind,
too. I even kept one of their attention the entire time, it never had a
chance to hurt my friends.

It's going to be in a couple of days, now. By the time you get this, it
might already be past. I'm scared, but I have to go through with it. I told a
couple of people about it, Renea and Niccele. They didn't take it the way I
thought they might. I asked Renea not to say anything, but she went around
and told people anyway, so now Dame Elisabeth is mad at me. It would be
different I bet, but I wasn't given the chance to explain my reason to her.

Then Niccele, she took it a little better. At least, I don't think she told
anyone else. She was mad that I got to know her, though. I can understand
that much. I said it in my last letter, but I know it's selfish to make
friends with people knowing what I'm heading into. I still don't regret all
the memories I've made since I left home, but it hurts to know some of my
friends do. It doesn't change anything, but it hurts.

I saw Malvo today. He's doing better than I hoped he would be. It won't last
long though, only a couple more days. It was weird seeing him. There's a
little part of me that still thinks of him as my friend, before I remember
what he did. He didn't apologise, he wasn't remorseful. He kept blaming the
town, and me, and everyone but himself. He's not the person I knew growing up
at all.

I'm not sure what I thought it was going to be like. When I first left it
felt like I had all the time in the world, but now that it's so close it
feels like every day from now to then is just evaporating under me, like a
whirlpool just pulling us to that moment. I'll be happy when I'm there, and
when it's passed. I had to tell others to get them ready, but now I'm alone
with the last things they said to me. Everything hurts.

You'll tell Sil I love him? You and dad, too. I need you all to know that,
since this will probably be the last letter I get to send you.

I love you,
- Alisser

P.S. Thank you for the cake and tea. It was delicious, I shared it with
some friends, they all loved it. Also, maybe hold onto the sword until Sil is
a little bit older. It's my favourite sword.
What are you talking about? What, that guy?
That was like that when I got here.
