Zee awakens about half an hour before dawn. Standing on the balcony, she looks north to the pole star Cynosure and the surrounding constellations as they fade in the brightening sky. Closing her eyes, she extends her arms and sways in the morning breeze, dancing in an unrehearsed and unplanned pattern, moving as her dreaming spirit wills. When she opens her eyes, she sees that a blue butterfly has landed on the railing. With slow and deliberate motion, she places the index finger of her left hand beside the insect, and it crawls onto her finger. With a delighted smile on her face, she slowly brings the creature close to examine the patterns on its wings. Then, a bracing breeze blows by and the butterfly flits into the wind, fluttering out of sight. That is a good omen! "Praises to the Starsong!" she whispers after it.
Returning to her chamber, she lays out a Harrow read for herself.
Summarizing the reading with a single card...
Ethic: 1d3 ⇒ 1 ...lawful
Moral: 1d3 ⇒ 2 ...neutral
Ah, the Queen Mother. The card represents the wisdom of the ages and respect for tradition. The Old Ways will serve me well today!
Today's Harrowed bonus: Wisdom.
Zee then spends the next half-hour laying out her Harrow cards in several different patterns, gaining the knowledge of more arcane magicks in their esoteric arrangements. i.e. she prepares her spells for the day.
After a brief breakfast with her friends, she heads out to do a little business. First, she drops by the Bazaar of Sails to procure some magical items: specifically, she's looking for a scroll of cure moderate wounds, a scroll of false life, and a scroll of enthrall. These are all from the Core Rulebook and list for 150 gp each. Next, she procures two flasks of alchemist's fire from a traveling alchemist. While passing a silversmith, she notices that he has a beautiful silver pendant in the shape of a butterfly, which she cannot resist purchasing. Silver holy symbol of Desna.
He shopping complete, she heads to Carent's Camp to inform Donal Carent that she will be leaving today for an unknown length of time, and that he is free to rent her tent to someone else. She then heads over there to gather her belongings, and puts them all into a large satchel.
Her business concluded, she rejoins her friends at Bartoque's and climbs aboard the carriage.
Zed: I bought these three scrolls with the intention of encoding them into my spell deck via a ritual. Can I do this in the carriage? It takes two hours for a second-level spell, and I'd need to make a DC 17 Spellcraft check or lose the scroll.
Also: I think we should use 750 gp of party funds to buy a wand of cure light wounds.
