We acquired a lot of stuff from the governor’s mansion. And set bits of it on fire.
And off we ran into the woods.
Alvin ==> 9 + Toyo Help ==> 10.
Largely Safe (aside from Exhaustion) … following the river … and there’s a River Company barge beached and abandoned.
Would need to ford the river. We’ll come back to it.
Blackpaw’s Dam, dominated by the dam, a massive tree across the river.
Small lake extending from it.
Come in along the east side of town.
We have war plans for the Marquisate attacking the Eyrie … but with the help of Eyrie factions.
Eyrie Roost overseeing the town. Built into the damn. Control travel from E-W.
Corvid contacts at the Brewery.
Alvin looking for a place with a Breakfast Buffet.
Also … maybe shopping?
Brewery is very active.
Cid and Allie decide they will just drink sarsaparilla.
Other travelers. Major hub in the woodlands. Place is quite packed.
When You Pick Up Rumors While Time Passes
Alvin - what’s up with the Eyrie? ==> 10!! Fishery set up. Gov. Cornelius … project dragged on, but saved face by getting it done. Lady Nikolai makes her home here – the noble working in cahoots with the Cats.
Lady N replaced her most trusted advisor? Well maybe normal petty infighting with Gov. Cornelius.
Cid - trying to find out about Woodland Alliance (terrorists / freedom fighters). ==> 9. There were a few here, but the Eyrie may have stamped out. Flathome would be closest place.
Group - anyone else who might benefit? Maybe Corvids?
Tomo - Did Ayase come up here? Marquisate ==> 2!! Sure, toads at Underleaf at the River trading post. Others, toads at Flathome. Some at the uprising at Allaberra.
But not doing song and dance.
Slayer - At Hardlow’s Warehouse – leave a note on the coaster.
Cid – looking for things to be repaired. Jim and his gutters.
(4 Value each. Also, Alvin has a nice little crown.)
Slayer – Hardlow recognizes. Blew up tree in Pinehorn. Can definitely help Slayer out with explosives. Anything new in town? Brother needs some stuff done –
(1) Jam up bridge controls for a week or two. Keep it from going up. Need it soon.
(No date on when the attack is due on the settlement. Just “soon.” So might be benefiting them.)
(2) Second favor – need to break the dam.
Down south: Mill Town. Just finished a grainery. Would be handy if the Eyrie’s town got flooded. That can happen later in the season.
More info? Ask a favor –
– reasonable, given Slayer’s rep ==> 9. Will tell, but take some Notoriety.
Some secrets: The governor (Cornelius) is not well liked by the high and mighty here. Three noble families (Lady Nikolai, Lord Silus, Lady Aurelia) from Roostin. He’s not one of them. Families are going to pretend to feud, but to drag down the governor. Only ally he has is the sheriff – the tax man. Families think, if Eyrie takes down the governor, one of them (or some outside noble) will take the job.
Corvid explosives wear taken off. Adding more.
Meet up with the rest of the crew.
Cid - Tool box has assorted medicine and alchemy kit. Just needs time for the other construction (Depletion). Non-leaky roof + food.
Alvin wants to know about the food.
Slayer will share his info somewhere away from the bar.
Kind of a mob boss guy. Two jobs, both a little sketchy.
Info about local politics.
Nobody wants the locals (or denizens in other towns) hurt.
Biggest Eyrie strength is the force with the Roost and control of the dam.
It would be difficult to take down the Roost but not the dam.
So … flood the Roost?
Or … offer up the plan to Slayer’s mob contact, but want some coin to get info on the timing.
Find some aquatic folk … who might want to take advantage of such opportunity.
Hardlow is cool with hearing about this – but wants his girlfriend released from the Roost first. Maybe get some coin.
Sets up a dead drop.
Tomo has earned an Advance (when we get there) for traveling to a new clearing.
