As you are making your introductions, Sellyria listens without interrupting. After you finish, she is silent for a long moment, turning to look out a window at the giant owls roosting in trees nearby. "Killia informs me that you fought a harrowblade, and are responsible for finding the body of one of our people, Lanikar. We thank you for your service to our people. Trellara here is Lanikar's sister. He had been missing for some time, now his fate is certain." At this Trellara barely holds in a shuddering sob. She wraps her brown and green robes more closely about her as she sits forlornly in the chair.
"As you have seen, the marsh is growing dangerous. We have long struggled to hold these beautiful lands for our own. The local lizardfolk have vexed us for many decades, but now a new peril stalks the Blackfens. These harrowblades, they are something new. We've only seen a few of them over the past few weeks. Poor Lanikar was the first to run afoul of one. Our high priest Illian Snowmantle, believes that they have ties to the infernal. Until today, none of the beasts have been sighted far from Rhest - it seems obvious that the ruin's new tenants have something to do with them."
"We do not care much for outsiders intruding upon our lives. But it is clear that a new danger stalks us. It may be that we have need of a Lion of Brindol, a shapechanger, a magic-user, and one of our elf kindred." Sellyria turns to look each of you in the eye.
Please can I get Diplomacy rolls for each of you, separate rolls for Sellyria and Trellara.
