It's a strange thing realizing how different you actually are from the others around you. Some Seasons ago I sent out to visit one of the places I remember from my childhood. A town I lived in as a youth while my parents aided the crusaders on the Hordline: the town of Trunau. I had heard there were periodic giant sightings in the area near there, and I was thinking that I could get a head start on finding one for further study by talking with some of the people my parents used to know.

Can you see the flaw in my logic yet?

In my years of study Kyonin I don't think I ever realized just how much the passage of time affects the younger races. Back home, I'm still young compared to the masters. But to the humans of Trunau half a dozen generations had passed since I left here. None remained of even the Grandchildren of those I knew. But there were signs of Giants beyond the walls of the town in the forests near the mountains. Not many, but mixed in with the mess created by the Orc clans the signs of passage were there.

And so I stayed. I had more chances for observing Giant habits here, then back in Kyonin. Yes it was mostly Hill Giants, but honestly it is probably better that way. They are so stupid I could observe them without them noticing.
And the Orcs, well they only hunt things that run, after a few seasons of setting up wild gardens of berries, tubers and mushroom rings, I didn't have any worries they would find me, as they walked right past my Caw numerous times, and never even noticed my wild gardens. When I had something I could not make myself, I visited Trunau and traded some healing for what I needed. It seemed to work out right up until this spring. Something with the Orcs changed, and I can't say for sure what it was, but encounters with them suddenly seemed more frequent. In fact they almost caught me one evening while I was gathering mushrooms. Two bands seemed to converge on one of my gardens at once. They would have caught me if my companion Reverla had not flown off leading them away.

As they chased the poor owl, I was able to slip away back to my Caw. I was confident he would be alright, as he had done this before, so it was all the more of a shock when the agony of his last moments and searing pain of the severed connection shot through the link. the pain shook me to the core and I remained inside for days, too depressed to leave.
I finally worked up the will to venture out again on a day when nature itself reflected what I was feeling. I left the Caw in that afternoon to pay my last respects to Reverla's spirt and pray to Mother Moon. The comfort from laying my pain on Mother Moon helped, but it was by no means her greatest gift that day. That was saved for later when I returned home. My mind was occupied when I returned to my Caw and so it took me a few moments to realize was I not alone inside, for under my meditation place was a fox. What happened next can only be described as a gift from the spirits. For as soon as it looked at me, it was as if the gaping hole in my spirit left by Reverla's death was suddenly filled. The pain became a distant memory and my spirit sang in jubilation.

For the next few weeks, I carefully coaxed the shy creature out of its shell and trained it to be my companion. And what a fine companion she has become. She still does not like being in crowds, and for some reason takes joy in snatching up things. Like that strange bag she kept under the meditation place. The bag contained a rapier, metal tools and gold. I have no idea how a fox even found and carried a rapier, much less why she wants it, but it seems to be important for some reason. But none of those things matter compared to how well she works with me, and strangely how wide a range of emotions she makes me feel.

It was actually this fox that alerted me to the latest giant band that was coming through. On one of her scouting missions she saw them a ways away and it quickly became clear that they would camping in the clearing in front of my Caw. Even with all the work I did to disguise my Caw, it would clearly be seen by a group spending the night that close, so I had to pack what I could, gather my new companion and run. Where we will eventually end up, I haven't figured out yet, but I plan on spending a few days in Trunau while my fox and I figure it out.
