Slayer collapses the tunnel. But also … it’s Rankle’s private lab. Flowers gown underground! Maybe some stuff that Cid wants before collapsing it.
Burn it all.

But clear depletion, first.

Bring the prisoners back to the Governor.


Clean up has started at roost.
Governor ordering folk to be released, have guard help people who are having problems.

Governor gets Cid the docs being looked for.
Tomo’s prisoner being put into cells, awaiting trial.

Anything about Ayase?

Alvin not giving over the ingots.

Tomo - repairing armor.
Alvin offers up half the ingots to get some cool benefits.

(Remove cumbersome from armor, plus 1 box)

Governor – will help us however we can.
Yes, this conspiracy came from Roosten. Kind of embarrassing that the Goshawks were arrested by a governor, but … plenty of evidence.

Depletion: 3 cleared (which can be converted to wear)

Some information:
The info Cid obtained indicates Allie’s parents are prisoners being kept in Rooston.
Tomo learns that Ayase found religion – now working for the Lizard Folk.

Ideas for Next Time

Goals for final blow-out:

  • Freeing Allie’s parents.
  • Confronting Ayase in some fashion?
    Pair of ideas:
  • Prison break in Rooston. // Slayer, Tomo, Cid
  • Follow up with prisoners in Allaburrow, and help Woodland Alliance.

End of Game Moves!


Cid – Development (yes), Protection (time passes, yes)

My one regret for this session is I realized too late I set up James for an Ides of March joke and I feel like both of us missed it. :wink:
