"A drake, I think. Or a wyvern. We learned in the caravan to take shelter when we saw such a thing. Fortunately we were not in plain sight when it passed over. We will have to be careful... hopefully its nest is not too close to the watch, or the livestock may become prey."

I'm cool with moving on

As you dismount Minara begins talking, seemingly unstoppable at the events that have happened since you've been gone. "You're back! Why Aranea will be so happy! There have been travellers and of course Teacher Saerin - he's the priest that they sent from Restov. And there's lots of new people. Most of them are pretty boring though. They don't hang around long, most of 'em, they just arrive and then leave to go and build farms and such. I don't think I'd want to be a farmer, it sounds boring, though Aranea does say that they're important. I guess someone needs to grow the food. I’ve been practicing my sword skills. Did you know Aranea bought me a sword – A rapier. I’m not very good yet, but Aranea says I need to be able to protect myself from men. I don’t think their mostly so bad as she says, and anyway, you’d protect me? Wouldn’t you sir Bein? I’m much better with a bow. Oh! Did I say that Aranea gave me a bow too? Maybe you could teach me with the sword Sir Bein? Then I’d be sure to get better! So yes, most of the settlers have been farmers, but there were some soldiers a little while ago who came and joined the others, and there were some gnomes too – gnomes are funny aren’t they? They said they were explorers and Aranea said they should wait for you to come back to get permission to explore but they insisted, insisted on heading off to the south straight away. One of them had purple hair! Do you think I’d look good with purple hair sir Bein? Here, I’ll hold Arundel (who’s a good boy?) don’t worry I’ll brush him down for you. I’ve kept his stable very clean. Oh! And Aranea’s been making me do embroidery. Its sooooo boring! But I made you a new saddle-cloth Sir Bein, I’ll get it for you later. It’s got a picture of a Stag on it – like your helmet. It’s not very good I’m afraid. Oh! And Aranea will want to speak with you about the attacks! You haven’t heard? Some livestock a few days ago, oh and then two people as well! I don’t know their names but it was off to the east, on the other side of the river. I’ll take your horses. Just leave them hitched there. Aranea’s in the hall.

UPKEEP PHASE Rolls::

Stability: Control DC 22: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9 (Fail)
Unrest: 1d4 ⇒ 4
Your kingdom's unrest is now 4.

Consumption: 47-1 = 46

Quick Stats after Upkeep Phase:

Economy 11; Loyalty 11; Stability 8; 
Consumption 1; Unrest 4; Treasury 46 BP

I have changed these in the Campaign info tab to stay current.

Now into Edict Phase:

a. Assign leadership (e.g. where does Volpe's bonus go?)
b. Claim hexes (double the number on the chart => you can claim up to 2)
c. City Improvements
d. Terrain Improvements
d. Edicts

I'll work out stats for your new High Priest ASAP. Probably best if kingdom planning goes in the discussion thread.

Bein dismounts and tries to take it all in, Minara's verbal assault causes even Arundel to tilt his head. When she finally stops Bein throws back his head and laughs before messing her hair up. His voice was friendly despite his sudden urge to ride east as fast as he could to investigate. "We missed you too my dear and it would be a pleasure to teach you swordsmanship. You'll have to ask Jack about the bow as I am not so inclined." He smiles at Jack, having now volunteered him to teach the young Minara. "What your sister says though is very true. Learning the basic skills is the best foundation in learning more difficult skills. Without the basics everything else becomes more difficult to learn."

He thinks long on the purple hair question before answering. "I'm not sure, but I will say you should try it and see. Life is too short to not seek new experiances Minara. I look forward to your gift and appreciate your information. You leave the details of the east to us but I am curious what else have you heard?"

Newcomers, a new Teacher and attacks on the eastern edge along with a... Wyvern or drake out west. He sighed and pulled off his helmet, despite his thoughts he kept up a warm and friendly face for Minara's sake.

Jack just nods shyly, overwhelmed by the young girl's gregariousness, but agreeing with Bein. "If she would like."

He looks to the others. "First, I should do rounds at the keep, see if there is anything the new settlers are concerned about."

Then, ruffling the young Minara's hair, he adds to her. "I'm happy to see you enjoy yourself here. And more so that you are eager to learn new things. Keep doing that."

Following some quickly shouted directions from Minara, you make your way back in to town, to the new tavern, "The Hart and Hind". Entering the freshly whitewashed building you are greeted by the landlady and ushered into a seat, whilst the serving-boy runs off to find the teacher. After several minutes a figure makes his way down the stairs wearing the rainbow stole that marks him as a priest of The Nine. Teacher Saerin is an older man - somewhere in his late sixties or seventies, with greying hair at his temples and sharp caerulean coloured eyes. He hurries downstairs and bows as he approaches the table, waiting as you stand and make the normal show of greeting one higher in the church. Formalities over, he sits and greets you less formally. "Teacher Xerafine, I thank you for coming to greet me, when I arrived I was most disappointed to hear that you and the new Lord, Finnabar isn't it?, had left the town. Its most exciting, I must say, to see these godless wilds being settled and civilised. Such a waste that it has not been done long-since. What I feel we must discuss, however, is the construction of a proper place of worship for these good folk who are bringing the light of civilisation to this barbaric wilderness. Without such a place I am sure that we can only expect to see them degenerate to the level of barbarians themselves, we both know, after all, how the lower classes are easily lead astray, and here in the wilds there can not fail to be temptations that those with less of a will than ourselves might fall prey to. I would request, therefore that you construct a shrine to the Nine as soon as possible. On my journey from Restov I was sorry to see more than a few pagan constructions and I fear that without proper guidance your people may fall away from the light of the nine."

You make your way into the fort, finding Aranea in discussion with a soldier. As you approach she dismisses him and turns to greet you. "Lord Finnabar!" she says with a weary smile. "at last you're back. There has been so much to do whilst you've been gone. Why, the new Teacher has arrived from Restov, there have been some kind of attacks on settlers on the other side of the river and, of course, new settlers. More of them arrive every day. Why the town is bursting at the seems! The new Teacher, Saerin he's called, has been to see me almost every day, requesting to see you. I told him that you were away, but he's very persistent. He was going to put himself up in Lady Xerafine's room, but I convinced him to stay at the inn in town. He's insisting that we build a shrine. Noble perhaps, but he doesn't seem to think much of 'the common people'. And, of course these attacks. It seems that, let's see, four nights ago, there were some pigs slaughtered on a small outing farm across the river, and by all accounts it was quite brutal. Then, yesterday, a report has come in that two of the settlers have been killed too. Both were near the new bridge returning to town. One was a shepherd boy, Bevan, killed two nights ago, with several of his sheep no less. The other a maid called Saki, killed last night. You must do something! Why I've heard chatter that it wouldn't have happened had you been here. Nonsense, of course, but that's what they're saying. I've even heard talk of werewolves if you can credit it."

Beins actions

He nods to Lord Finnabar and stows his Stag Helm on his belt. "I will investigate the rumors and word of this attack further my lord. Please Excuse me everyone."

From there he mingles with the guards in the settlement trying to gather information from them and enlist their aid in trying to calm the citizens.

"My apologies, Teacher, for not being present to greet you properly upon our arrival. Many of the necessary tasks for taming these wild lands have fallen directly to Lord Finnabar, myself, and his chief advisors and officers. You are correct that a proper Shrine needs building, and I am certain that Lord Finnabar would like your counsel on its ideal location within the new kingdom."

She pauses a moment, stands, then kneels before Saerin, head bowed, and holding out the Speaking Staff to him with both hands.

"The Speaking Staff is rightfully yours by your office, Teacher Saerin. It was placed in my trust and now I am obliged to return it."

In reply to Aranea, Finnabar smiles: "You did good. It is normal that people need time to adjust themselves to this new land. Now for the two main point you are bringing to me, Bein and Jack are already gone to follow up with the killing and we will take care of it. And Teacher Xarafine has gone to see the new priest. From what you say, the teacher, yourself and myself will need to work on him to get him to fit. But I'm sure with the three of us, we'll be up to the task."

"But I'm weary from the road and have some news for you then for Oleg. Let us get something to drink and we will talk", he adds, leading the young diplomat to the main room of the fort where he picks up two glasses of wine.

Offering one to Aranea with a smile, he adds: "We have been exploring a lot and found good resources," he says, "detailing the two mines (gold and silver) they found. We also encountered the Scootscale tribe of Kalds and discussed a treaty with them. The teacher and myself will explain you what exactly we agreed and you will need to draft an announcement to all explaining it clearly. I'm also counting on you to learn Kald as soon as possible. You may need to go there for that. If you do, please take with you a small patrol for your security."

Bein nods to Finnabar and gladly accepts Jacks offer. He looks to Minara as well. "We will be back soon to give you some training little one for now we have some business to attend to."

Nodding to Jack they move as one to talk with the guards, calm the populace where needed and speak with Akiros and Kesten.

If Kesten wishes to join us that would be cool but Bein will specifically ask Akiros to come with. Someone needs to be in a position to do their job and Akiros, Bein and Jack can handle almost anything I am sure! :D

You and Bein make your way out of the town and north to the new bridge across the river, lead by Kesten. Although the second attack only took place last night, the girl's parents have already removed the body and all that remains is a large red stain on the road's edge.

Survival DC 15:

There are some tracks here leading off towards the north. They look very similar to the tracks of a large wolf.

Before leaving the city Bein put on the Stag Helm once more and shuddered at the clarity it gave him.

When they reached the site he carefully looked around the area like a man possessed. When he found the large paw print he turned to Jack. "I found something... but I'm sure I will muck up thr trail if I go further. Can you follow it Jack?

Bein and Jack:

The tracks lead away to the north. You follow them, finding that they lead into medium-sized stand of forest, the edges of which show signs of having been harvested for wood for the growing settlement. Once you reach the wood itself however, the tracks lead onto a large rocky outcrop of large round granite boulders and there they seem to just disappear.

Perception DC 20:

From beneath you, somewhere amongst the boulders you can hear the sound of yipping - like a puppy, or a wolf cub.

Xarafine spends a couple hours resting in her room, then changes into fresh robes, and goes to find Finnabar.

"Lord Finnabar, I thought it important you know that Teacher Saerin is most anxious to see a proper Shrine built. He is concerned that the people will turn to fanciful notions and beliefs if they do not have a physical, foundational point of reference for their faith in the Nine."

Kneeling over the now-faded tracks, Jack freezes as he hears something. Pointing down to the crag in the rocks, Jack looks at Bein and cups his ear, indicating he should listen. In case Bein still can't hear, he mouths the word "pup."

But a pup would not leave so large a track... he thinks to himself. It must be a mother... He frowns. I can understand a dam wanting to feed a hungry pup risking invading a farm to take the pigs... but it would probably avoid attacking people--dangerous prey, and dangerous moreso to its pup--unless it felt threatened... I wonder if the people 'attacked' were farmers trying to drive it away... or if there is an even larger pack, wolves are much braver then, but we found the trail of only one animal, and I hear only one yipping...

Jack observes the area. Wolves would certainly attack livestock as easy prey, he did not doubt that, but attacking humans to feed seldom happened unless they were desperate or angry. He tries to assess two things: whether there is a notable absence of other prey in the area that would drive the wolf to attack people, and whether his assessment of the wolf behavior is correct, or if it would perhaps more randomly assault people on the road.

He was prepared to follow behind Jack and protect him lest the pup wasn't alone...

The tracks definitely look quite a lot usually bigger than you'd usually expect for a wolf, and the animal's behaviour is also unwolflike. There is not a lot of evidence of other animals in the area, but this close to a den you probably wouldn't expect to find many other animals anyway. The woodcutting though, may have driven away other prey?

Jack edges over to Bein and whispers in his ear. "I hear a pup but not its dam. But it is not behaving like a normal wolf... and it is very large. We may be facing something very dangerous... but I think we should investigate further."

Jack slowly and quietly approaches the rocks.

Xarafine spends a couple hours resting in her room, then changes into fresh robes, and goes to find Finnabar.

"Lord Finnabar, I thought it important you know that Teacher Saerin is most anxious to see a proper Shrine built. He is concerned that the people will turn to fanciful notions and beliefs if they do not have a physical, foundational point of reference for their faith in the Nine."

Meanwhile, in the fort, Xarafine finds Finnabar seated with Oleg, studying the March ledgers and discussing the near future.

"Please, be seated Teacher, while I consider your proposal.", offers Finnabar, crunching a few numbers on a sand-table. "I understand clearly the issue teacher Saerin is raising, especially with us being far away from the so called 'civilization' and in a region where the ancient elves used to live. He is afraid people will turn to the worshiping of the animal headed elven gods we discovered.", he adds as a mean to gain time while he ponders the exact turn of words to use. "I'll be direct with you. Right now, the safety of our people and the stability of the March is my top issue and for that we need to rebuild the fort into a really defensible structure. That will eat up our starting funds more than I'd like. The rest will go into clearing up Highbridge and establishing the Kaldmine to build up a reliable source of revenues. Then we'll have to wait for the first silver shipments to be sold to afford building other structures like a shrine. That said, I will put up the shrine on the top of our list of priorities together with granaries to store up food for the next winter."

Bein claps Jack on the shoulder. "If anything happens I will buy you time to run for help. We cant let whatever this may be to get us both." With that he drew his greatsword and followed Jack.

Xarafine nods in assent at Finnabar's statement.

"I understand, My Lord," she replies. "I cannot guarantee that Teacher Saerin will be so swayed by your reasoning."
