|The Dark Lord Morgoth|
Tiadora appears behind you as you watch the bugbear horde sweep down upon Castle Balentyne and the village of Aldencross.
"Well done. The master commends your exquisite performance. Yet there is still much to do. Follow me," She commands as she sweps towards the shore of the lake. She leads youto a ramshackle river barge Halstyn’s Folly tied to Lake Tarik’s bank.
The captain and three man crew of this shallow-bottomed barge all appear to be thoroughly under Tiadora’s control. They are certainly no threat.
“The master commands you board. You will learn more later.” Tiadora will tolerate no delay.
Accommodations are crude. There is only one cabin and Tiadora has already evicted the so-called captain and made that her own personal domain. Any suggestions of sharing are greeted with scorn and a harsh declination.
This means that you must make do with sleeping with the crew on the deck of the barge. There is a roof but no walls and at night on the lake and rivers, it can be bitterly cold.
The Folly is bound for Farholde, a three hundred mile journey through the great scar that almost cuts the isle of Talingarde in twain. The barge is sluggish making less than twenty four miles a day. That means that you have twelve days to rest and enjoy the leisurely journey.
Please feel free to ask questions, and do any crafting or other things in your posts.
