A note for all you cool cats out there looking for something RIVETING and AMAZING and FRESH: James Alineau Phiric is now on our character roster, so read up about him!

Later on, you can expect a post incoming roaring by how he came to be and why he is where he is doing what he's doing. I'm excited, you're excited. We're all excited about James the master swordsman.

Bear in mind that this will come while we're still traveling by airship in the main narrative to get to Praetoria, and our first combat between Councilman Guellan and the crew will take place on the ship at high costs.

Let's just say I'm PMing Rydia about losing something precious to her kith.

I've started working on my post! I'm hoping to finish it at lunch time or on the commute home but if not, I'll get to it tomorrow morning for sure.

Also, just read James's character profile @soundofmind and he's a perfect fit for Astrid the group! I can't wait to see how they all interact :D

Apologies for the delay, commuter's internet is particularly bad this week but if I get back at a reasonable hour tonight I'll post it then and if not, tomorrow's the weekend :D

That was absolutely delicious! (And I won't lie, it was my first instinct to burn the book, too...)

OH! And you deffo get some SB credits for that post! I will count the engagement with Gregor as part of Guelan's party, so an extension of Guelan. Hopefully we'll land soon enough to start getting to the Tuatha de Danaan (Danu) so that third point is redeemable. :)

OR once we cross into Praetorian waters, there could be aerial Danu that attack the ship to bring it down, since that's what we want. There are a lot of ways this could work. One of which involves Guelan becoming the fabled god Dullahan, who was, er, headless...in some retellings.

@Rydia --> I've read over how Astrid thought about and treated Gregor in your post heavily, so I'm going to hope you approve of how I handle the remainder of the scenario in an upcoming Valon post.

(Let's just say she's getting a big buff...)

(I mean, everyone will see at the end of the post in meta notes what they gained from the fight, bringing back a little D&D into the story just for kicks and giggles. ;) )
