Tucson Blood and Tears

Athula of a Ven New Year, is romance in the air?
Hosted by Maylay Yvarai

Invitation

You have a choice to come by sea or land to Wolf Island for a Ven New Year’s Eve Party to celebrate the coming of the new spring and the birth of a new child to the ruling family. Maylay has given birth and is hosting this affair! The local Vassels are in attendance to see the new heir of the Wolf Isles. The Road Wardens have killed the Wild Pig Ork haunting the Wolf Isles and is now being cooked by the cooks!

A “spring party” is an excuse for nobles to gather and plot and trade and scheme. Fall in love. So many young men and women in one place, all eager for Romance. So young. So easy to manipulate. So easy to fool into life-long contracts binding them forever. Of course, at this particular party, the noble in question is of marrying age and her consort was recently killed on an ork hunt or was he taken into solace early? She’s available. Ripe for the picking. What the ven don’t know is she’s playing a game with her two friends: who can collect the most promises from desperate old men willing to do anything to win the favor of a beautiful young girl…Winning a Lover If you can’t think of a way to make this complicated, you need to get out more often. Romance is a messy and mean business. You’ve got rivals and parents and brothers and sisters and arranged marriages. Maintaining a Romance is even worse. The ven have laws for such indiscretions and they are not kind. Sure, society accepts Romance, but the law does not. So, we’ve got lots of sneaking around. Lots of innuendo. Lots of other people trying to discover your secret so they can use it against you. Blackmail is such an ugly word…

A married woman or man approaches one of the ven, looking to begin a Romance. She also provides a new ally. An important ally. A powerful ally. And remember the consequences of breaking her heart.

Winter Of The Khanurdante
Althua Hosted by Sithic Jasnine, Count Kether

Invitation

There is talk of Khanurdante, the Great Elk of Shanri. A magnificent creature, pure white, antlers that shine like stars. King of all creatures, the ven give it powers beyond those of mortals and orks. It is some kind of source of terrible power. Many have quested to see it. All have come back changed ven, unable to speak of the experience. Visibly changed.

Elk are sacred to all Houses, not just those who wear the heraldry. No ven hunt them, although spotting an elk on a hunt is said to bring good fortune. Killing an elk brings…something else.

Bring with you artifacts with stories to tell, and listen to tales of the Dungeons I explored during my travels! Hospitality will be granted to all who bring artifacts as a gift for The Red Wolf.

Invitation

The servant responsible for delivering the news to you this evening arrives bearing a fine rolled up vellum, embossed with an unfamiliar seal that bears the characteristic trappings of those who bear the rank of Duke. Unrolling the vellum, you see the following words inscribed.

Welcome Fellow Honored Ven, You all are most welcome at the Castle Eirilac for a dinner and instruction. I look forward to seeing you all.

While being uncharacteristically short, the missive does include directions… to a castle in a region that has been unoccupied for longer than most ven can recount. There are also rumours that those who have ventured to this region did not return… which may explain the odd post script, If you wish to arrive in a fair state, follow these directions to the letter.

The Althua of Kether
Hosted by Marquis Sithic Jasnine

Invitation

You are cordially invited to the winter manor of Marquis Kether for an Althua celebrating the end of the year…

As you read the elegant invitation from Sithic Jasnine, you look over at another letter from a fellow senator:

There has always been a Count Kether. Count, mind you. This new Marquis of Kether is troublesome, and a growing concern among several senators.

The Law Binds All is Drax’s first law for a reason, and though we are all bound by the laws set down by Jonan Drax and later the Senate, not all laws bind us equally. In fact, a century ago the Senate realized the potential abuse of power the holder of Kether Province could wield. So they bound the Lord of Kether to a rank no higher than Count, a limit on his power, authority, and reach.

Sithic Jasnine is flaunting this ancient ruling, challenging the Senate by holding the title and rank of Marquis.

Perhaps it is time to reign in this summer upstart, and revoke his Marquis title in accordance with our passed legislation.

Guests of the Marquis Sithic Jasnine

Truths

  • Baron Dagul Sheeda opened a dueling school to train new students. He trained his Sheriff, Herald, and two of Sithic Jasnine’s Wolf barons. This will give everyone so trained the Duelist aspect.
  • Isdil (a relicsword of Jonan Drax in the possession of Tavir) rank one wounds people who lie in its/its wielder’s presence without being drawn. It slaps as if with the flat of the blade without being drawn those who lie while technically telling the truth in its/its wielder’s presence.
  • Isdil can be invoked to draw Jonan Drax’s attention (and thus potentially his wrath).
  • The Storm is hovering over the Senate.

  • Shaina recognizes that Sithic is preparing to become a suaven due to the unnamed temple and would-be relics (like the bloody quill).
  • A member of Sithic’s staff is a corrupted servant of Mahl.
  • Only orks who were once ven hold Mahl as their mother.
  • Servants of Talia have pearl necklaces that can be like an aphrodisiac based upon intent.
  • Shaina is as a bouquet of roses when it comes to those who come to her: she changes to fit their “desires.”
  • There are shrines and temples scattered throughout the ork lands dedicated to Jonan Drax.
  • Szaas received a special necklace from Shaina to seduce Sithic. Now Sithic and Szaas are expecting an heir.
  • Sithic Jasnine’s title has been reduced to Count.
  • Everyone on record who voted to take away Kether‘s title of Marquis will get a visit from Baron Dagul’s Beast.
  • The Beast will make a personal visit to inspire the former Count Kether as to her savage nature.

The Althua of Valdendon
Hosted by Q'val Emina Thali

Invitation

The Storm has been harrying you for days, cutting off every path to shelter. Finally, in lands you do not recognize you spot shelter up ahead. Shelter which you might be able to reach before The Storm cuts you off yet again. You make a mad dash and hope the occupants will provide hospitality. Your vassals and ilderim need rest. Rest and refreshment. YOU need rest and refreshment. You will not be denied shelter again, you decide, as you push your entourage to its very limits to reach the stone walls up ahead!

Guests of the Q’Val Emina Thali

Truths

  • Each guest had their own trial in attempting to reach the shelter of Ashalim Avendi’s puzzle temple:
    • As Sithic Jasnine‘s entourage started to slow down from fatigue, The Storm began to gain ground. If he didn’t do something fast, The Storm would finally catch up to him. He gave an inspirational speech which rallied their morale and let him reach his destination in time. He gained the temporary Orator aspect. If he had brought the Orator aspect, it would have temporarily counted as four style when invoked.
    • As Tzao Sinjin got close enough he saw the moat and that the bridge was nowhere in sight. It’s not that it had been pulled up; it was not there at all. He decided that he would get inside despite such an obstacle. He gained the temporary Athlete aspect. If he had brought the Athlete aspect, it would have temporarily counted as four style when invoked.
    • As Dagul Sheeda got close enough he noticed that there was little defensible ground here. He would not want to be holed up here against a physical enemy. He gained the temporary Chance-Taker aspect. If he had brought the Chance-Taker aspect, it would have temporarily counted as four style when invoked.
    • As Nobody got close enough, he spotted that one of the trees on the grounds was actually a cunningly disguised statue. He veered toward it and spent a few moments of study before he found the hidden lever which triggered a ramp that descended under the earth. He gained the temporary Puzzle Solver aspect. If he had brought the Puzzle Solver aspect, it would have temporarily counted as four style when invoked.
    • As Tavir Thali got close enough, a murder of spectres came swooping down from one of the outlying towers. He didn’t let them deter him from the promise of respite from The Storm. He gained the temporary Strange Intuition aspect. If he had brought the Strange Intuition aspect, it would have temporarily counted as four style when invoked.
  • Emina Thali is a current owner of at least one yrbinti die.
  • Ork candies grant +1 Strength temporarily if you really eat them.
  • Sithic Jasnine takes two dodecahedron from the temple vault.

  • Emina Thali captures the tears of the wolf avatar in a chalice. Should he obtain tears from the other olivana avatars, the chalice will become The Chalice of the Tears of the Olivana.
  • The wolf avatar and Dagul Sheeda are linked.
  • Twelve relics of Ashalim Avendi were stolen.
  • One of Nobody’s spectres is watching and guarding Tavir Thali. (He is aware of it.)
  • Nobody opens a portal. The portal:
    • Splits imperfectly whatever is thrown inside.
    • Once Ashalim Avendi’s puzzle temple is consumed, two others are spit out by two other portals.
    • All future portals will split avatars apart.
    • All of the tears of avatars can be used to reassemble the beast and the ven into the avatar.
    • Roses grow around the portal and weep tears of joy. Giving one of the roses adds +5 to a Romance.

    • Imperfections are split out by the portal.
    • The portal is the Imperfect Portal of the Twin Portals.
