013 – Prism Theater – In My Eventual Office

We headed off to Stormside, in search of the Master of Wyverns. Za’lynn stayed back at the Theater, feeling a bit under the weather. It was my first time setting foot onto Stormside. The island feels small and claustrophobic, squat buildings all clustered together. Everywhere you turn, there are people and smells and you are always turning, winding through alleyways. Not an open view or plaza to be found.

After a few inquiries, we were directed to a lantern shop owned by a man named Funuko. The shop itself was beautiful, packed with various sorts of colored lanterns. Each of us couldn’t help but purchase one before we left. Mine is currently hanging above my desk, casting multicolored lights around the walls of the room. I cannot wait until this is a proper office.

Funuko, The Master of Wyverns, towers over five feet tall, with dark hair and umber skin. His long lived life is obvious with crinkles at the edges of his eyes and streaks of grey threaded through his long pony tail. He fights with a long spear, the quick and striking nature of his attacks modeled after the movements of a wyvern. Not that we got to see him fight. We really just did a lot of talking and debating.

He was not excited about the idea of coming to Mistside to help us train the townspeople. He considers himself retired, only having to deal with the occasional challengers these days. We tried a few different arguments to change his mind. The winning argument turned out to be that if he did not help us empower the people, then they might turn to the Judgement Legion out of fear and desperation.

He really does not like those guys. Jade was so right. She is a very smart woman. So smart. And so pretty. So very pretty and smart.

Funuko came back to Mistside with us. While construction is going on, he has agreed to hold classes for the people on all even numbered days. (We need to make sure Miles has the chance to attend a class or two.)

After getting that settled, we all sat down (minus the sick Za’lynn) and went over the events with the sahuagin again, trying to make sense of things. The spell on the gem must have been attuned to the sahuagin somehow. Clutched in the captain’s hand like that, with a sword through his corpse, it looks like another mutiny at sea. There is also the fact that the ship was broken into three pieces. After we had time to think about it, we realized that given the nature of the wreck and the types of breaks, the ship did not break apart on the ocean floor.

It seems very likely that this is the work of a kraken and those kraken cultists.

We have decided that it is time to return to the cave with the kraken idol and the hidden passage. We know more now than we did the last time we were there. Perhaps we can uncover some new information.

In the midst of all this, there may have been a small upset in the party. I am not entirely sure how it all started, but I think Zeno is now jealous of my beauty. Which is silly because beauty hardly matters. Somehow, however, this led to a fight between him and Jade. Some hurtful things were said (see #17 of Zeno’s code) and I am not sure how to smooth this over. I need them both on point if we’re heading back into the cove. There is no telling what we’ll find there.

Besides, we’re all so very pretty. So pretty.

  1. I have not decided yet on all the areas I will claim as my perch. I already several places that could do very well for nap and alone time nooks but I will wait until the building is more structurally sound before deciding. For now I have also hung my lantern in a spot where I can admire the colors it casts on the walls.

    I am so very glad that others understand why the Judgment of Doom is So Very Bad and if that’s what it takes to motivate others into helping then at least the No-Names serve a purpose.

    We do not need to waste any more time discussing the ‘small upset’.. but actually, it’s going to bother me if I don’t. HE knows what he said, and it was unnecessarily hurtful to my personage. My comment to HIM was a compliment comparing just how close he is to the Beauty of the Sun – HIS worlds were a like a dagger in my heart. I have never suffered such a needle-like strike upon my person, and that it came from someone I consider a friend.. I am in disbelief. I wounded. Wounded!
