The weather is still cold, but it’s slowly getting warmer with Spring well on its way. The day light hours are as long as those of the night, but the nights are getting shorter. In the Wellsorrow Region, the Shadowfell despair is fading in its cycle. The people of Ashbourne and surrounding areas are feeling happier and it’s easier to shake the despair, and harder to fall under its influence. There is a half moon in the night sky tonight.

Shadowfell Despair Check: DC 9/15

The stars aligned. Or it was all a bunch of coincidences rolled into one. Miranda jumped up at the sight of three men walking in. The bright blue-eyed man sighed heavily as she approached, but he offered her a bag and more instruments and Miranda clapped her hands. 

But it was the boy he had his arm around that caught her attention the most. A half elf by the looks of his genetics, a half sibling to the man behind him, and with a boggle on his shoulder. A fucking boggle — this had to be him!

Rosana joined the trio, and Miranda as she glanced through her bags. 

“Care to introduce me, Miranda?” When the other woman looked at Rosana, she winked with a node. 

Miranda’s eyes went wide and she smile. “I can only do so much. This is my love, al’Zand.”

The blue-eyed man groaned. “Miranda… we have viewers…” 

Miranda put her finger to his lips and shushed him. “Who are your friends?”

al’Zand shook his head and pushed past the others. “This is ae’Nyx, and he needs a heart meal. Not this gruel shit — something to put meat on his bones.”

The man behind them chuckled. “My name is Alushtas. We are all famished. Shall we all sit down and dine?”

What should they do?

  1. Can’t tell a daily story if we have choices …. hmmm… not sure how to do this.

Who would you like to go first next week?
