You only live twice: Once when you’re born and once when you look death in the face. (Dagon)
We have maybe two more sessions after this, on the 24th and 1st, to finish the campaign. Inga Moon is already level eight. Roho and Holger are each seven.
We were taken by the Furies to face Themis, the goddess of Justice. In order to get a trial, first we had to solve the riddle of the seven bridges connecting four isles. That and fight Furies. Holger was in his element.
Themis demanded we explain ourselves.
A. We wanted to free a friend of a curse.
B. We made deal with demon.
C. We followed it into hell and escaped.
Theis detailed the endgame challenges:
I. Gather the remaining parts of Bu’Sno’Ons’Ub, the one you know as Dagon, from the Filthy Swelter that lies on the boundary between the River of Fire and the Ice Tundra of Ymir. DONE and DONE.
II. Forge the Sigil of Dagon by taking the collected parts to the Tidevansurvek Forge. It lies under the Isle at the southern edge of the Great Ice Sea. WE HAVE A PLAN.
III. Burn the Sigil into the trees along the Frontier. Ensure you can see the sigil on approach and that from each sigil you can see two others. The mark should keep the beasts from crossing and entering the frontier. SHOULD BE EASY.
Next week we enter Tidevansurvek and need to destroy one bridge and convince the warring tribes of Rhino and Dog Fae to each take one of the two remaining bridges and share (or double) the merchants tolls. The merchants will pout but Themis will be happy.
The endgame will be a wargame of raising forces and defending the Frontier.
Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. (Dagon)
